A moment in my day
A most embarrassing moment
When I was in year 11 I went to Japan with a bunch of other girls from various schools in our netball association. We were on a tour to spread the netball gospel. The accommodation was from the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, it was an expansive cold mass of concrete and overall dilapidation. The toilets in particular.
Without a bowl of cereal in sight, nor fresh orange juice, my little north shore school girl tummy was barely adjusting to the sudden change in food. In the middle of the night I needed to access the bathroom. Wearing my flanelette pajamas and bed socks (not much has changed for this lady cause I'm klassy like that) I locked the cubicle door and undertook the business. To finalise the transaction I flushed the toilet.
The water kept rising. I thought about it for a brief moment then recalled the whackyness of Japanese toilets being equal to the general Japanese population..... meaning extremely whacky (1993 whacky).
I tried to unlock the door. It wouldn't budge.
The water kept rising in the bowl.
The 'deposit' rose with the water.
The door wouldn't open.
The water started spilling out from the bowl.
I couldn't get out.
The water gushed onto my bed socks and pants and as I frantically tried to get on my toes and open the door.
Eventually the door unlocked, but it was too late. I was soaked in my own crap.
I can't even talk about what happened next......
Selling myself in 10 words
A bright package of resilence, integrity, fun, honesty and passion.
What I miss
Game of Thrones. I haven't seen one ep of the new season and I feel I may die if I can't see John Snow. Oh baby, yes!
A public apology
I publicly apologise to the Australian people for having to endure another absurd budget tonight.
Ten things that make me really happy
- feeling feminine
- learning something new
- colour, texture and curious things and nicknacks, the way they feel, their smell, the emotion their colour and form brings to a space
- seeing people succeed through adversity
- dense dried fruit filled sourdough with lashings and lashings of fine quality butter
- being able to smile from the inside out
- my children's arms around my neck and their soft lips on my cheek
- the freedom to be me
- being seen for who I am and what I bring to the table
See you in another six days no doubt!
What do you miss?
