Blogging Month Day 16: Bouquets, Bingles, Books-into-Movies and Bad Postcards

Filed under: Blogs, Humor, movies, Uncategorized — liberrydwarf @ 3:01 pm

1) One good thing: not much explanation needed. Just these, last night, from hubby. Lucky me! And I’m pretty sure he didn’t even do anything wrong!


Aren't they pretty? (Ignore the messy kitchen bench please...)

2) One bad thing: we were hoping that the woman who’s 4WD hubby clipped merging into traffic the other day wouldn’t bother taking her vehicle off for minor cosmetic repair and make us pay for it… but she did (to the tune of $1100! Seriously, how much can a bumper bar actually cost?) and even though we could use our 3rd party insurance, we’re still up for $500. Which I would have liked to use for something far more fun…

3) One thing I learned: they’re making a live action Tintin movie! (Tintin is one of the biggest book influences from my childhood, even though I was far too embarassed to put that on the #booksthatchangedmyworld Twitter meme. I was all set to be a journalist because of Tintin, until my evil sexist father told me that girl journalists didn’t get to shoot rifles or go to the moon, they only got to report on fashion shows and bake sales. Thus died the dream…)

4) Today’s link: It’s only new, but the Bad Postcards blog already has many delights for those of us who like the kitsch, kooky or the vaguely disturbing in stationery… exhibit A below.



  1. I have the whole collection of Tintin – am also looking forward to the movie – Simon Pegg as Thompson hehe
