I was not shaking her she just really NEEDED to go play

I was not shaking her she just really NEEDED to go play

Being in Queensland is messing with my seasons. I felt so confused and sick that I slept in the day time. I want to go home and make soup and comfortably wear stockings and boots. I’ve got a sandal tan but I got a sandal tan during heatwave hobart, so. I’ve got boys to make fall in love with me and stewed rhubarb in my freezer. 

"There is a kind of voracious reading that happens between the ages of seven and 17 that I thought was reserved only for, well, children. Sometimes I wonder if all my reading since has been a secret attempt to get close to that experience of sustained absorption."

That’s the mama dog who came with tiny Spot and the others. When she first appeared at the farm my parents and their neighbour drove around to find out where she lived. They found the place and the people reluctantly took her back. Then she came back so they were all “I guess we have a dog now OH and she’s pregnant”. They named her Buddy.
She spends most of her time hiding under the house and leading pup into moronic situations. Once she took Spot down to the creek and got her stuck on a ledge until someone got her down. She’s not really a very good mother. She’s not really a very good cattle dog. She was hiding in the grass near the yard barking and freaking out a cow as we tried to move it.
She was way skinny but she’s better now. She still flinches when you pat her, flops her ears if you speak to her and cowers when you come at her with a lead. Maybe just don’t get a dog if you don’t really want a dog, other idiots.

Anonymous asked: would you recommend a cattle dog for someone who works full time?

Absolutely not. Unless you have a LOT of space for it to kick around in while you’re at work the thing will get bored and sad and destroy all your stuff. Dogs aren’t toys or accessories. Get a cat.

kjacko asked: What are some of the unexpected things you miss about QLD.

The view from Mt Coot-tha. Easy access to the big sky. Visiting my family whenever, easily. Nice beaches. Ren. The Citycat, walking from the Storey to the Victoria, driving along the riverside expressway at night. Gang breakfasts with my housemates. Walking through Victoria Park to get home. Consistent weather. Riding my broken bike along Enoggera creek. Peering out the south-facing windows of our house on the hill in Herston. Buses. Going to the same places and seeing the same people. Almost all of my friends being in the same place at once; 2011/2012 was a golden time and a nightmare.

Edited to add things I knew I would miss but didn’t think I would miss this much: milkshakes at Flamingo, the bald guy with the beard who used to work at flamingo (Wade, they don’t love you like I love you), Eleanor, needlessly fancy beers at the scratch and tippler’s, rolling around new farm, picnics in new farm park, all of the hills along newmarket road, the powerhouse. 

Everyone is interrupting my reading, ask things instead.
