Right now, my life is a waiting game. I recently interviewed for a job I really, really want, and I'm expecting to hear back on whether I got it either tomorrow or early next week. I don't know what I'll do if I've missed out. We've been here in Tassie over a year and a half and I just haven't found the work I thought I'd find. I knew it would be tough - I was warned, much like I was warned before entering the animation industry - but I was determined to do it anyhow. Unfortunately, as Joe and I both only work casually (these jobs are the best we've been able to find), we've gradually fallen behind on bills. Right now if there's a bill in our lives, it's overdue - a couple of them desperately so. We've managed to keep up with the rent and keep ourselves fed but that's about it. If I don't find something full-time soon, we may have to start considering a return to crummy old Queensland.

(No offence, Queensland friends. I love the people, I just don't much care for the city, the environment, the weather, the prices, the vibe... I could go on.)

I got a wrong number earlier and almost had a heart attack.

Some truly happy news on the horizon, though: providing my life doesn't implode due to the above in the meantime, I'll be coming to America in January for FC. Don't look at me strangely; I know I don't technically run in those circles any more, but an old friend invited me over and offered to pay for my plane tickets, and I've never been out of the country before, so I accepted with delight. I look forward to meeting many of you there. Hell, I've known some of you online for ten years.

I'll be the tiny, loud, drunk Australian. Look out. ;)

    Ooh! Joe and I were talking about this one the other day. I have no issue with cremation, but because I love trees and I'm a sap (no pun…

    This is a weird question for me. There are a lot of things I'd have changed at the time, but nothing I'd change now. Does that make sense? 2007.…

    Joe is chronically honest, so I'm kind of already in this position. When I say "chronically honest", I mean it - he will tell me anything. He…
