As much as I love having the Etsy side stream of income, sometimes it pisses me the fuck off. One customer who misunderstood the listing and thought she was getting double the amount of patche...

Dulcet Tones.

Being fat and now also unfit is no joke. Walking from the bus station to my job is horrible. Add in the fact that it’s blazingly hot, and I am required to wear a mask, so air is less plentiful,...

Ernie went to sleep last Friday. It was, and still is, utterly devastating. I’ll tell the full story some other time. Things are pretty shit in all areas right now. I had to ask my mother for...

I took a double strength edible a little while ago and it’s just kicking in now. I should go and facebook stalk a bunch of people because that would be SMART. Ernie had a better day, followed by...

A Little More...

So, my work day started okay, doing catch up for the week I was out. Supervisor is out moving house, I finish at 4pm, should be a simple day. BBL had other ideas, and pummeled me with work. A...

Last time I wrote was Thursday, it’s now Monday morning. Let’s see: I didn’t switch out the toaster oven on Thursday night because I got some more patches in the mail and I needed to create an...

Take Me Home Tonight.

Warning: lots of whingeing in this entry. Yesterday was another day to kick my ass. I suspect today will be a third in a row. Friday, maybe more of the same, but half way through the day, I am...

The Greatest.

The internet is piss poor in my office today, so this one has to be short. Had counseling this morning. It was fine. I don’t wanna go, but it’s like medicine - I don’t want it, but I know it’s ...

Put Your Peach on my Mango.

My work day yesterday was okay. I got my walk in the afternoon. The weather was perfect and I had my headphones in. Most of the walk back was just David Bowie’s Queen Bitch on repeat because, ...

In the car with M this morning, we got onto the topic of houses with high fences and gated driveways, and how it would be a must to have electronic gates because getting in and out of the car to ...

50c corn dogs

So many packages to open yesterday. So much stuff I really don’t need to spend money on. BUT I LOVE SPENDING MONEY. Yesterday dragged it’s ass HARD. I had a seriously difficult time musterin...

The rageathon continues. I’m listening to Tom Jones right now to try and calm my farm but it’s not working AT ALL. Pretty sure I’m trying to pick a fight with M. I fucking hate arguing with him...

I feel angry this morning, almost as though I’ve had an argument with M. Except that I haven’t. It’s just that particular kind of agitation and annoyance. Strange. I’m having a hell of a time ...

Oh, poo.

Last day in the office for the week! It has been a slow week. Not a great deal going on at work, which makes me rest on my laurels BAD. Tracy is having a hard time adjusting after her vacation...

I let myself feel way too annoyed about things that either aren’t my business, or are definitely out of my control. And then I feel annoyed that I let myself feel annoyed about it. I’m the wors...

This field is required.

I want to write, I feel like I need to write and to purge the garbage that’s swirling around in my head, but I don’t want to write it here, because most of it is gripes and complaints and stuff t...

June 29, 2016


This is the longest day ever. Ernie has been snoozing under his blanket for some time, apparently very tired out after running around the bank lobby like a dickhead. They hand out milkbones and ...

My neck is insanely stiff down one side. It’s the worst. Did you know that today is the last 12 hour Friday for M and I? #Fact He’s finishing on Thursday of next week (his security license exp...

Regretful Farts

I can’t bring myself to read any articles on the Pulse shooting, because… I just can’t. I don’t want to read about the heartbreak and the total waste of life, for no good reason. And then I don...

June 06, 2016


I feel like I have more Sertraline than I should have. Like, 5 or 6 pills too many. It makes no sense, because it’s very rare for me to miss taking one. I must just have my dates mixed up. I...

Fight The Anx.

Just trying to distract myself from those anxious flutters that are so insistent in my bowels… M told me last night that he’s struggling with his own anxieties and wonders if he might be having s...

This blank page has been sitting here for the longest time. I really want to write, but I have no idea what. I need the outlet. ((Insert whiny grumbles about M here)) Yesterday I worked on some...

When you have shitty time management skills, probably the worst thing you could do would be to purchase items that guarantee that you’re going to waste even more time on something with no tangibl...

As Good As A Holiday?

I felt really quite ill for most of the weekend. I spent what felt like a lot of time just laying around. On Saturday, we ran some errands, grabbed food and Tyler met us at our place. He hung...

I feel like writing more, sorry. So, I’ve been thinking lately about how I’m becoming a different person. I feel like I’m allowing myself to dream and plan and do more things than I had ever al...

Book Description

This story is about my life with M.

M and I met on another online diary site in around 2006. He was in New York, USA and I was in New South Wales, Australia. We formed a friendship and spoke nearly every day, whether online or on the phone.

Towards the end of 2008, we realised that we had become more than just friends, and we made plans for me to travel to the US in 2009. So I did.

We spent 6 months in New York, before moving to New Mexico. We got married in New Mexico and I had to return to Australia shortly after.

M followed me to Australia over 4 months later, in mid-2010.

M has now returned to the US, and I will be following him in October 2013. We are going back to New Mexico, where we have a friend to live with at first and a storage unit full of our stuff. We plan to head back to New York to settle within a few years.
