revisiting our greatest hits because they never fail to make me feel better, even though, at the same time, they remind me of how much i miss you.

i swear i get the weirdest crushes on celebrities. as it is, rob brydon is sitting on my desktop, in a tweed jacket and black-framed glasses, and it makes me smile every time i see him.

every. time.

just took a peek -

yep, still smiling.

in other news! encountered two trash-related mishaps today: the first was when i attempted to empty the bin in our kitchen, only to find that it was too full and heavy for me to yank out the plastic. so i decided to flip it all into another bin liner, only to discover the World’s Worst Smell that had been lingering near the bottom of the bin, gleefully awaiting its next victim to come along so it could jump out and climb into her nostrils and hold on for dear life whilst the victim did violent shakings of the head and frantic wavings of the hands to try and dislodge it. nearly keeled over as i double bagged it - stepping outside twice for fresh air - and gratefully chucked the whole affair into the big bin.

in hindsight, i suppose i could’ve just tipped the bin into the big bin directly without having to pull out the plastic. but that’s the problem with hindsight, innit? never turns up on time.

the second one was at uni when i thought i’d be a Good Samaritan and dispose of the coke can sitting all by itself on the floor by the library entrance, waiting for someone to be a Good Samaritan and dispose of it. tried to balance my building model with one hand whilst propping open the bin lid and chucking the can in with the other.

again, hindsight let me down and only came to smile smugly at me like a smuggy smugger once my model had decided to have a bit of a lie down on the tarmac and smash into several pieces even as i cried out for it not to.

i really should have a word with hindsight on the importance of showing up on time and Why can’t it be more like its cousin, foresight?

and yes, jellybeans. i literally just wrote a rubbish post. which you have just read.

ha, you fools.

it’s been a month and a half now and i am finally, finally feeling like i’ve settled in. about time. i did not appreciate those bouts of homesickness that hit me in the middle of the night and made me curl up and try and will myself back home.

sigh. i must now address this pile of assignments that have popped up out of nowhere like that book you needed a week ago or the mortifying squeaky quality your voice adopts when you’re talking to an attractive person.

About this site and its Author

I like things quirky, I like boys geeky, I like food warm, I like books witty, I like drinks sweet, and I like music whimsical.

My name's Lisa and I write and draw things. Occasionally I eat things, and occasionally the things I eat and the things I say are the same things. But that rarely happens, as the things I say sometimes are not very nutritional and I do not encourage ingesting them without careful inspection.

If you've got anything particularly interesting to say, tell me about it or get your own tumblr (and tell me about that, as well). Send an e-mail to nurlisa@mac.com with something about elephants in the subject field.

Follow me on insta @lookforlisa for more kitty (and non-kitty) things, or swing by my old bloggie blog, jomkiteblog.blogspot.com, for optimal stalking material.
