Things I have been loving lately

26 Aug

Arrested Development – It is one of my favourite TV shows ever. It’s the kind of show that needs to be seen in sequence at least the first time you watch it as there are a lot of reoccurring jokes and stories. And it just gets better and better every time you re-watch.

Oh my goodness – Book binder heels! My friend M sent me the link to these heels. Aren’t they amazing? They can be found here.

Cute cows!

Hasn’t the humble doc marten shoe come a long way?

Love these guys and their witty commentary on all things books! First Tuesday evening of every month, ABC1.

My new favourite TV show – Freaks and Geeks

Hippos are seriously my favourite animal EVER!! So under-rated.

Yes please!

Stephen Fry – you’re amazing and hilarious!

I feel better already.

And things that are amusing you at the moment???

One of my favourite bands are coming out to Australia in October. Okkervil River. Put it in the diary. The Hifi Brisbane, 19th October. Get yourself there. Before you do – watch this!

Details here.

Tonight: The Breakfast Club on the big screen!!!!

It’s one of my favourite movies of all time. Eternally quotable. Funny. Touching. Wonderful. I own it, have watched it loads of times. But to see it on the big screen – will be awesome!

I don’t watch television, I think it destroys the art of talking about oneself. Stephen Fry

I’m over the moon. I’m flabbergasted. Shocked. Stunned. Excited. Without words. I have heart palpitations. Aprehensive.

This is how I am feeling about the show that Stephen Fry and Alan Davies are performing in Brisbane in October/November in conjunction with their wonderful trivia show QI. When a fellow workmate who knows my feelings about Mr Fry told me he was coming to town later in the year I actually screamed with joy.


Details can be found here. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Stephen Fry in the flesh! Imagine! Gah!
