Knitception.

Salvation Army.
Blue - $5
Red Granny - $5
Soul mate Technicolour - $20
This knitwear isn't even half of my collection.  It is upsetting how I must leave less than exceptional woollen creations in an op shop. *le sigh*  


I've been listening to some chillaxing (I remember being ridiculed by some Regina George-esque 14 year old girls for using the word.  We were never friends.  I maintain that 'chillax' as a verb is one of the most rad, groovy things one can expend energy on.) music.  This playlist provides a decent cross section of the nerd/musical/teen rebelling with mainstream rock/wanting to like jazz/bearded musicians rag tag nature of my iTunes.  Dost anyone else enjoy these sweet sounds?  I would like to snap fingers in appreciation of Liam Finn with you.

In which my Mama proves herself a troll on Facebook.

Many thanks to Cat for letting me use her photo.  I cropped out my friend because it would be creepy to post pictures of her on my blog.  Not because I don't think she is rad.


Mum:  Ella, that blouse was not worth the $1 you paid for it.
Me:  Haters gon hate.
Mum:  There is a reason that somebody ditched it
Me:  I'm cut.
Mum: I've had a closer look and think that the feature I dislike most is the double row of 
white plastic buttons. On a positive note, gold buttons would be worse, or is that better?.
Mum:  Did you get your sense of style from your mother?
Friend:  pwnd
Me:  My Mama is a  troll.
Mum:  Perhaps she is modelling her personality off a LOTR character
Friend:  she be trollin'
