Three Links

It's hot. I could fry eggs on the hood of my car, and they'd be seasoned with street dirt, peeling paint, and whatever birds like to eat plus white goop. I'll call them Parked Car Eggs or Huevos al Carro Aparcado.

These are interesting bits, in no particular order (well, in the divine order, which none of us can know):

1) 12th and Moore

2) Meditations on Grilled Cheese and Gloomy Mondays

3) Since I'm too lazy to go back and link, this was from InStyle

I'm so brown right now. I wish brownness to everyone, unless you're in Arizona, where it could cause complications. If you're there, definitely call them "Parked Car Eggs" and keep your documents handy.

Parked Car Eggs - hahaha!
I totally forgot that link. :)
So sick of the heat, but here, it's been raining every day, too, so no pool! Any color I had is quickly disappearing.

Frying eggs on the hood of your car, a hood of a car, grilled cheese, grilling sandwiches on the hood of your car, eating them, getting funny hair as the result. Divine.

sybil - jorg thinks you've been eating too much food cooked on cars.

jorg - Nice connections -- I wish I had been conscious of making them. But the divine is evidently somewhere in my (or the collective) unconscious. I've suspected that.

Birds have a certain aesthetic preference I guess, but they're still soulless beady-eyed superinsects.

Mmmmm...car eggs. Hey! That sounds like big eggs that cars lay. They crack open and itty bitty baby cars come out of them. Kinda like a giant "kinder surprise". Wait- do you guys have them over there? If not, they are small chocolate eggs with toys inside, and i sometimes buy one for my kidly if she has been a good girl during grocery shopping expeditions.

I wish it was hot here! It is freezy and i am pale. But alas, in the summer i just go red. I certainly do not meet the "bronzed aussie" stereotype requirements. But i shouldn't complain, as i prefer cooler weather. Australian summer sucks big smelly camel balls.

Anyway, grilled cheese is heavenly, even if i'm supposed to be a vegan now. I'm actually thinking of being a part time vegan, because life without cheese can get fucked. I buy nimbin natural cheese (nimbin is a massive hippy centre here in aus :)) without animal enzymes in it, so i can still eat it without feeling too guilty.
Sybils post is funny and cute, and makes me want to go over and say hello. I am so trying out those virtual hairstyles. I actually have a wig that looks a lot like the first pic :)

I have heard about the unpleasantness in Arizona via an internet buddy. It's pretty shitty :(

Well, that was a long comment. I will have to actually think about posting something on my own li'l bloggy sometime. Meh. Soon.

I will package up some Melbourne freeziness and send it to you so you can bask in the glorious chill. If i had a car, i would mash up some some delicious aussie fruits on the hood of it and send it to you. It is called a "car health slushy". Actually, i will just use one of the neighbours cars. Enjoy the refreshing blend of passionfruit and frozen bird shit.The bird shit is extra tasty, because the birdies have been feating on lillipillies. (native berry which is purple and tastes a bit like sour candy and apple). See how thoughtful i am?

great, now I want a kinder egg. Luckily they are everywhere. even the coffee and news shop in my building carries them. probably because Germans run it.

And thanks for the link to my apricot and car photo. I almost didn't take that one but the two things together made me really happy.

Bon - I've never heard of the Kinder Surprise. Wikipedia claims that they're illegal here, but judging by Lora's comment, they're available on (in?) the German-American black market.

Thanks for the thoughtful continuing education on things Australian. And post something, huh? I need to comment sometimes, and blog strangers often seem put off or confused by what I have to say or how I choose to say it.

Lora - It's a very pleasing photo. I don't know exactly why.

I prefer brown to most other colors, with the exception of pale, pale blue. Which, it seems, is the color my skin has chosen to run with for 2010. Better than magenta. 2008 was not great.

I've been playing a great deal of Sega.

Pale, pale blue is a pleasing color. Magenta, not so much. It's alarming.
