(This works best if you read it out loud.) A man went to the zoo. When he got there, there was only a dog. It was a shitzu. Note: grammar of original joke has been edited.
I was going to cook a noodle stir-fry tonight, but then I remembered I had some rice leftover that I really needed to eat up (Yes, really! Can’t waste rice!). I’ve been very conscious of making sure that I eat vegetables while Jac is away (if I didn’t consciously think about it I reckon my […]
Sunday arvo. I’ve done the laundry, swept the floor and emptied the bins. I’ve just had some lunch – my mum’s homemade lasagna. She gave me a generous serve to take home on Friday night. It’s got a tasty sauce with lots of meat and mushrooms. I don’t eat dairy products very often as I […]
Yep, that’s right. I had a bowl of minchee and rice for breakfast this morning! Mum gave me a small container of minchee to take home last night, and I ate it this morning with some freshly cooked rice. I would eat this every morning if I could! Now it’s time to think about dinner.

After seeing the pictures of fish and chips on a couple of my favourite blogs recently (see here and here), I began craving fish and chips myself. So on Tuesday I wandered down to our local fish and chip shop. I got myself a fisherman’s basket, which consists of two pieces of fish, a handful […]
For this weekend’s Cat Blogging, here are a few random recent piccies: Here is Pixel, enjoying sweet dreams. What a hard life! Billy Lee always steals my seat when I get up to go to the toilet or to the fridge. When I return she stares at me and meows “This is my seat now!!!” […]
I’d like to draw your attention to a comment someone called “You’re Kidding Me” wrote in response to my Melbourne Cup Day post: You’re kidding me, right? Do spare a thought for the poor horses – for every one race horse you see, three get euthanised because they just didn’t make it. When the horses […]
