More Doggie Goodness

With Alec away I am spending more time with my beloved wuffs. Here is a little vid I filmed on the awesome Flip camera. I can't wait to have them with us full-time.

Halloween is Coming!

I think it's a shame we don't celebrate Halloween in Australia.

This is the best costume ever. It would be awesome to see this walking down the street.

Kahlua Pics

I tried to get some pics of Kahlua. She moves tooooo fast and looks quite insane.

Saturday Fun

After a good morning climbing session with Nicko and Hamish, I dropped by Beverly's b'day BBQ pool party. It was a little nerve-wracking not really knowing anyone there, but it was also good for forcing me to be more social and meet people. I met some of Bev's really nice friends, had my first swim for the summer and ate some tasty food. Not bad for a Saturday.

Alec and I mucked around with the Flip Video I got from the YouTube launch during the week. I love how quick and easy it was to use. Especially uploading to YouTube. I'm planning on using it to take MANY videos of my cute puppies.

Alec is off to Mountain View again tomorrow. I miss him already just thinking about it :)

Girls Night In

Rosalie held a Girls Night In to raise money for the breast cancer foundation. A company called "Fashion 2U" (I think) came around and it was basically like a tupperware party ... but with clothes. Much more fun. I wish all shopping was like that - coming to you in all sizes in the privacy of your home.

It was so much fun to try on clothes with friends and eat the awesome food Rosalie provided for us. I ended up getting a shiny disco top and black shorts - for only $53. Bargain!

Thanks Ro for being the hostess again. Hope we raised a good amount for charity!

Back To Work

It's been hard getting back into the swing of things after such a great month in Europe, particularly work and exercise. With the jetlag finally receding, there's no excuse anymore for my lazy attitude.

So I went back to climbing tonight with Kate - ouch! The paaaaiiiiiiiin. It felt good to get back into it, but it's frightening how quickly you lose fitness.

Berlin - Sydney Dance Company

Rosalie and I saw the Sydney Dance Company perform Berlin at the Theatre Royal. We've been getting sick of the Australian Ballet, so it was a great change to see a new company.

What I loved most about the company is that all of the dancers look completely different. Different body types, shapes, so they look like real people.

The Show was quite unexpected - set in Berlin, it went for about 75 mins with no interval, on the one stage set. The performance really flew by - I was entranced by the delicacy of the choreography. The show was divided into a group of smaller pieces, each one with a different mood and character set epitomising Berlin. The live singer with giant angel wings added to the great atmosphere.

It was a little strange, with some of the characters dressed like circus performers, but I really thoroughly enjoyed it.
