Random Nonsense from a Tipsy Lady

The end of a crazy busy work period is nigh, (after the 21st), and maybe I will blog blog blog again.

In the meantime I am busy busy and when I finally finish for the day I am relaxing with a gin and tonic made with locally brewed (as in up the road) gin.  I am not a big drinker but holy moly is this gin smoooooooth.  (We both bought lemons for election night and then fell asleep way too early, so we have to use those lemons!)

In other news, I took some (lovely) students to a filming of a political chat show the other night and wow was I lucky because GERMAINE GREER was a guest.  Actually, being in a tv audience was kind of lame (but on my Things To Do in Life list; also, I clearly would have made a better guest than one of the guests!), but still I got to be thisclose to Germaine Greer and though I am generally highly, obnoxiously disdainful of fangirl/boy crap, I totally wanted to run up to her and say "Please come have a drink with me, Germaine!!".  But I didn't.  Because I am shy sometimes.  And lame.

I should go eat now.  But really I wanted another one of these gin and tonics!


  1. Huge fan of hers. I read "Beautiful Boy" cover to cover esp. since the British and Aussie press (read: white males) absolutely trashed her over it when it came out.

  2. HA! I'm not the only one who gets drunk on election night and watches the returns then!
