Hide These Links ”With every period of exhaustion comes a corresponding period of depression which goes to our weakest point at that time. Ron and Nancy Rockey ”When you don’t feel good about yourself you make wrong choices in terms of relationships, in terms of the jobs you settle for. You make wrong choices at every turn.

As always, Deefer came to my house and picked me up. It was winter, and that meant c-o-l-d, so we each rugged up. For me, that meant skirt, tights, boots, top, coat, scarf and gloves on standby!! The Market, day and night, has plenty of parking at the back. We were right, and we managed to get a spot pretty easily. It was a pretty chilly night, so while we mostly kept one hand in a pocket, the rest of the time, we strolled hand in hand around the market.
Dotted around were huge pits of fire. Around them, the organisers have put chairs and seats, and each one looked so cosy and warm. So, the market, and those amazing cauldron like fire pits made me feel like I was at a Christmas market in Europe. Alas, the queues for the food stalls were just as long as usual, despite most of Melbourne not yet having realised that the Winter Market was on.

Sunday, November 25, Personal apocalypse For whatever reason, in the past couple months I have rewatched two movies where the events can be read as a metaphor for the main character cracking up. Don’t worry, I’m fine. But it does appear I really like a movie like this, in which the events have one literal interpretation, and a second that functions as kind of a personal apocalypse for the main character.
Of course, sometimes those apocalypses are literal as well, and sometimes the main events can’t be interpreted in a way that also makes sense literally. Both Melancholia, which I rewatched on September 28th, and mother!

Tokyo In a discovery that will give nutritionists the shivers, a Japanese scientist has discovered that consuming ice cream for breakfast improves a person’s alertness and mental performance. Yoshihiko Koga, a professor at Tokyo’s Kyorin University, has carried out a series of clinical trials in which test subjects were required to eat ice cream immediately after waking up.
They were then put through a series of mental exercises on a computer. Compared to a group that had not eaten ice cream , Prof Koga’s subjects exhibited faster reaction times and better information-processing capabilities, the Excite News web site reported. Monitoring of the subjects’ brain activity revealed an increase in high-frequency alpha waves, which are linked to elevated levels of alertness and reduced mental irritation.
To examine the possibility that the test subjects’ reactions were simply the result of the brain being shocked into higher levels of alertness by the low temperature of the ice cream, Prof Koga repeated the experiment with cold water instead of ice cream.

Sunday, January 12, The abrupt womanhood of Gaby Hoffmann Gaby Hoffmann was a mainstay of Hollywood movies as an early teenager, and then poof! In fact, she did nada — zilch, zero, nothing — from to During those years, she metamorphosed from a girl into a woman. And I mean like a to year-old woman, even though she’s only 32 today.
I first noticed this when I saw her show up on an episode of Louie. And I was all “Huh? And the reason it was so shocking is that she turned, suddenly, from a little girl to someone who looked ten years older than she actually is. I’m a little afraid of exploring why Hoffmann is so strange to me, because it says not great things about the world we live in. I think the reason she stands out as an actress is because she’s She has thick eyebrows and unflatteringly sharp facial features, and no longer radiates the pluckiness that got her cast way back when.
