I'm also a little frightened because it has been bucketing down for 14 hours straight. I only know this because I got a clear break for my run this morning and it was down pour from then on.
To add to the chaos in Sydney today, Costco's first store opening here magnified the usual traffic chaos on Parramatta Road by a factor of around 987 462. There were variable message sign warnings well before the evening peak hour(s) were meant to start.
Needless to say, I didn't even bother driving past Costco to find out what all the chaos was about. There's only so far I'm willing to go in the pursuit of bargain priced, brand named groceries after a full day at work. Give me a few days....

Truth be told, I'm just a little fragile today. Dr Nina chose Dr Patrick and not Dr Chris in Offspring's season finale last night. I know that she had to choose a real but imperfect love over one that was based on dreams and what ifs for so long but I'm still gutted. I am ashamed to say I did the diehard sports fan act last night and turned off the television the moment it was clear my team was not going to win.
Still, there's not much else a girl can do but brush her hair off her face, swing her stethescope around her neck and stride purposefully into work with a defiant smile on her face.
It was just as well I did because the Duchess of Cambridge was in the SMH today. And if I hadn't been so organized today, I wouldn't have brought the paper in with me to work today. The article was about the influence of women with constructive and prominent roles in society who are not only role models but also a source of fashion inpsiration for other real women. I will not rise to the bait of an oblique but sarcastic reference to spokes models at this point. I will not. Moving right along.
Will you look at that caption? The Duchess is a J Brand lover too. Apparently this has been a major windfall to the Australian importer of the brand. They are struggling to keep Australian stores stocked because J Brand is flying off the shelves (even at Australian 'high cost of everything, we have to factor in the price of carbon and rental' prices). Such is the power of Kate.
Okay. Yes I did. Go to the Revolve site and have a browse. And a one click purchase. My only defence is that for once the price in AUD was much cheaper than in USD. If that's not a reason to keep up with the Duchess of Cambridge, then I don't know what is. All will be revealed when Revolve's expedited, free international shipping has worked its magic.
Take care and stay dry - tomorrow is Friday!
