Hey all. I'm loving hanging out in this space. And tbh not flush with cash. But I worked out I could afford a couple of $ per month (literally $2) to go towards @aus.social's running costs. ATM they are getting $21 per month with 10 patrons. If 15 more of us pledge two bucks each, we can cover the running costs with a teeny bit extra. But, even $1 per month will help! Or less if you can't afford that.

A friend compared me to Natasha Lyonne tonight, and SHUT UP EVERYONE. I never wanna HEAR another thing ever.

Interviewed my author crush today. And OF COURSE the fucking studio just had new software installed; the panel totally reconfigured. Just 🤦🏽‍♀️

Having lunch by myself, and some dude paid for it and left their contact details for me. I had no idea until after they'd left. I'm guessing they're from outta town, cos this has only happened to me in Europe and the US. I mean...free lunch is nice...but...😅

I have had a kind of beautiful birthday. Been out with lovely old friends, ran into others, was accosted with impromptu hbd songs, hugs, gifts, drinks and kisses. Feeling loved and so sleepy 💛

It's my birthday tomorrow and all I want...is a month-long, all expenses-paid holiday, somewhere with a large body of water, and lots of trees :) That, or I'll probably just go pick up a bottle of Good Whisky 😂🎉 Goodnight beauties. See you when I'm older.

A friend just posted this on FB...had to share. 🤡🧟‍♀️

Australian Realness at the Malthouse took on Australian classism, racism, the arts, and our bad sitcoms...all in a frenetic stage show that literally deconstructed in front of us. Savagely funny.

Realised I swear a lot in class (and in general). My students don't seem to mind, and -- to be fair -- it's a lot less than my journalism lecturers used to. Still. Wande see what a niced-up Mel
