Short & Sweet // Game of Thrones 1995

Holy crapballs Batman, I seriously cannot wait until Game of Thrones begins. As an avid bookworm I have already read the accompanying books (until I lost Book 3 Part II in Singapore airport) and there is so much stuff I’m not sure I can even handle seeing. The Red Wedding? Anyone?

You’ll get there. Trust me.

In celebration of it coming out so soon, here is a look at what Game of Thrones might have been if it was made back in 1995. Cue awesome power song and terrible fonts. It’s like they’d never even heard of Typography or something.

It might be infinitely worse than today’s standards, but I dunno… I kinda wish I could see an episode for giggles.

What do you think? Would you have watched it? 

And the winner is… the Liebster Award!

Liebster Award

I’ve been nominated! The lovely Sammy Jade over at How To Run In Stilletoes nominated me for a Liebster Award! If you’re a fashion lover – or just a lover of pretty things – you should definitely go check out her blog,

c) I’m narcissistic. Aren’t we all? Just a little bit?
d) I like lists.

So here we go! Continue reading

What happened to 22? On birthdays and the year that was.

Due to my cold I wandered about the day in a fog, not quite aware of what was going on. I felt curiously detached from my birthday; if it wasn’t for the various reminders via Facebook, I may have completely forgotten about it. I woke up this morning and  thought, ‘Huh. Did my birthday even happen?’ Continue reading

Australia, what are we not talking about?

When applying for my internship, I was asked to write a 600 word article on something I thought would interest the readers. After much deliberation, I chose the tricky subject of euthanasia. While the issues discussed have not affected me or my family personally, it is an issue I feel strongly about. If this topic is likely to distress you, please don’t read on. Continue reading
