Things I Love Thursday

Hello my darlings! I know it has been quiet around here, I have been setting up my new life as well as dealing with a wicked case of jetlag! Things will be back to normal as soon as possible — thank you for your patience & for bearing with me! Now, without further ado, here are some of the things I’m loving this Thursday…

Having Antipodeans to talk to when I’m awake at 4am on the other side of the world dreaming about really blue water & flowers made from snow Hank Williams snoring in my lap while I work dressing Hank up as Pocahontas harnessing the power of the Moon & Venus in Virgo & obsessively cleaning/organising/setting up my new office & wardrobe room the fact that One Lucky Duck now does home delivery drinking green tea that The Dish made me (tea & coffee always tastes better when it is made for you by someone who loves you, fact) finding a voucher for Forever 21 amongst all my things & going on a much-needed shopping trip madly trolling Ebay for winter must-haves telepathic dream sharing S Factor by Tigi Body Booster Plumping Spray (it smells like strawberry bubble gum & gives rad volume) Cuban food with Stef aka POS (see also, he was nominated for an mtvU performing award & you should vote for him because he really does deserve it) using Hank as an impromptu hot water bottle delicious breakfast & laughter with Philip my new hooded faux fur coat cozy couchness furniture shopping sweet unnecessary compliments (even better: totally weird ones that people don’t expect you to hear) vintage Playboy centrefolds as my desktop wallpaper my new indigo desk all the bunny ears for sale at Ricky’s watching Greek in the bathtub while surrounded by pink glittery bubbles (Lush I love you!) jingly bracelets Silversun Pickups this purple, life-size, glitter-covered skull that I bought cuddling with my two favourite boys when people say “Welcome home” napping plotting new stuff to put on bulletin boards Jane from Sea of Shoes (she is a sweetheart) being reunited with all my clothes …& even though I am exhausted, the thing I am most pleased about is being home — in my new, real, actual home — with my little family unit. Love love love.

“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, & demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long & its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people & grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food & for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one & no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools & robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep & pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song & die like a hero going home.” — Tecumseh

Best thing I’ve read in ages.
