Stewed Apple for Slackers.

It might have been chilly and pouring buckets outside this morning but inside, things were steaming up.

According to MTV, Daniel and Jordan are 94% compatible.

I was doing the housework to a soundtrack provided by MTV and Rihanna (or RiRi as the Go Fug Yourself ladies prefer to call her) was  being sultry and looking it too.  I think she looks fabulous when her hair is coloured the more 'natural' shades of the L'Oreal colour spectrum and when its got some volume and length to it.

But it wasn't RiRi's hair that made me stop in my tracks between cleaning sections of the bathroom, it was the pink bubble at the bottom of the screen.  Apparently it's some kind of relationship health advisor.  If you happen to be anxious about the state of your relationship at 6 am on a Saturday, you can banish those feelings by texting your name and your love's to the Pink Oracle who will then send you a message via your TV screen.  At a cost of $2 plus standard SMS fees.  Some of the messages were actually quite profound.  I hope the path of true love is running a little smoother for the youngsters in MTV Land.

Does anyone else eat canned apple for breakfast?  In a context devoid of pie crust or crumble topping?  Well, I'm hear to tell you it can be done.  I just microwave half a can with some sultanas, lemon juice, honey and cinnamon.

Then top this with some vanilla yoghurt and more cinnamon.  Stewed apple for slackers.

I had a castrophic  laundry moment today.  I put some new dry clean only trousers in the front loader.  Of course, I only realized they were dry clean only when I tried to iron them and noticed that the fabric didn't seem to be taking to the iron as well as it should.  It should be illegal for bargain priced items of clothing to be dry clean only.  Illegal.  Anyway, it's too late now.  I'm just hanging them out and hoping for the best.  They were khaki so the best case scenario is that I end up with work pants with a distressed finish.  I'm hoping they don't turn out camouflage.  You're not the only one dying of suspense.  I'll let you know tomorrow.

I took this photo using the Salvador 84 lens and the DreamCanvas Film.

I've been gazing at the SSG Manor coffee table through the eyes of Dali this evening.  No, that's not another way of saying drunk.  Today marked the re-release date of some limited edition Hipstamatic lenses and film and I managed to download the pack and take some test shots.  I love the distorted, flip side effect.

Stay warm and stay dry, everyone.


  1. The course of true love never did run smooth. Not even on MTV.

  2. As their is no dry cleaner here, some of my more robust looking dry clean only clothing gets a gentle cycle wash with shampoo and then gets hung out over a clothes horse. It is all fine. I never put them in the dryer though.

    I hope they survive and definitely hope they are not camouflage as that wouldn't be a very you look.

    Take care.

  3. Oh dear, I know how you feel, I accidently threw my bargain jeans in with all my favourite striped t-shirts and ended up with blue splodges everywhere. I nearly cried! I did manage to mostly salvage them by throwing them back in the wash at super high temp, but they are looking a little worse for wear now! My thoughts are with your pants!!
