Quiz Night

I went to a quiz night where members of my team included my Mum and Dad. We did ok, finished in *mumbles* place but in our defence the questions were hard. One such example was:

Who am I - Thomas DeCarlo Callaway? I have no idea. (Cee-Lo Green, I just googled)

And most stupid question of the night:

Q - Who is oldest: Mary-Kate or Ashley Olsen?

We all picked one or the other.

A- the same, they're twins.

What kind of retarded answer is that. Did they both come out at exactly the same time?

I can actually, 100%, swear that this is impossible, what with being a twin myself and a grand 6 minutes older.

All in all was a good night and lots of money was raised for Catherine's event and I'll be swotting up for the next event.

Who's with me?

New Discovery

Today I was in town and noticed a blue plaque above Cash Converters on Bridge Street. Look!

I quite like Milk of Magnesia so I was very pleased to see this.

On the other hand the Postman dropped off a parcel today and here's what it was:

No time like the present.

Perfomance Art by Aaron Williamson

On Monday 14th November I went to the Arts and Disability Forum to listen to Deaf Performance Artist, Aaron Williamson give a talk. Aaron was in Belfast to discuss his work and to perform at the Catalyst Gallery. Unfortunately his partner, Katherine Araniello was unable come. Aaron showed some of his video work with Katherine, this one in particular is hilarious - Amazing Art by Disabled Advant-Garde

Later in the week I went to see Aaron perform at the Catalyst:

Meeting Aaron gave me a different opinion of Performance Artists. His work is all disability related and speaking to him helped me understand his work more. We've all seen performance art and thought some of it was pretentious but finding out about the artist beforehand definitely helps.

Good Intentions

I began the day with good intentions. I was going to be productive. Unfortunately I was distracted by my favourite websites and viewed the contents of my dusty external hard drive. I've been listening to Planet Rock and Gold through internet radio.

On the other hand I have begun my Bucket List. No 'win the lottery' and 'buy a house' but 'go on holiday for a week', something I haven't done since that fateful week in January 2002. Actually. My list has been in my head for some time and to date, I have marked four items off! Isn't that something. Will post a picture up in due course but for now, here is my venue for today.

Sunday Morning Come Down

I took Penny out for her morning walk and as we were approaching our destination I saw a group of birds (starlings for people who like details) filling their tummies from a pool of vomit.

Just thought I'd share that with you.

Life begins at 30.

My twenties were eventful with a lot of moving around, I moved back to London twice and have held down one job. I also graduated in my mid-20s though so that's OK. (with a degree I will never use. That's also OK because I am now working towards a new one.)

I turned 30 on the 11th November - 11/11/11 at...1.03pm. I decided that my 30s were going to be the best years of my life and I even got a new job!

Armed with my coveted Longchamp Le Pliage bag, Diana Athill and Edgar Allan Poe books, my solid silver Skull ring (got to wait a few weeks for it to arrive), Poeme perfume, Hiroyuki Mastuura 'Use Your Ears' swatch watch and my notebooks I am ready to tackle 'proper' adulthood head on.
