Random Stuff

  • My back is feeling a thousand times better thanks to heat packs, heavy duty pain killers, and a couple of visits to physio. I've decided that physiotherapists are probably my fav profession right now. The difference in the pain from just one visit was amazing from excruciating pain to very weak pain and the spasms have completely stopped. I've also had acupuncture and have a special thing to put on my seat and have this tape on my back that reminds me not to slouch.
  • I've discovered this really cool Esty store that is both eco friendly and feminist friendly. It features recycled clothing (t-shirts, hoodies, cardigans etc) that has been screen printed with images of inspiring women such as Emma Goldman, Gloria Steinem, Frida Kahlo etc. She also uses water based paints and recyled cereal boxes for the tags. The creator also appears to be vegan. The difficult part is choosing just one to buy!
  • Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe is on to something great: peanut butter in salad sandwhiches. As soon I read it I knew I had to try it and it was perfect.
  • Mr T and I have started date nights where we take it in turns in suprising each other which awesome dates. It has got to be one of our best ideas yet. Most of the time when we eat out it is with friends or in a kind of last minute I can't be bothered cooking let's go here. So it's been a nice change and it's so exiciting planning and being suprised by each other. It's my turn tonight and I can't wait to see his reactions. I'm sure I will be blogging about more details soon.
  • There is a raw potluck next sat that a friend is hosting. If you are interested in coming and haven't been to a potluck yet you can email me at bluerthanpink (at) gmail (dot) com and I'll let you know the details. I'm looking forward to experiementing with raw recipes, something that I haven't really done before.
  • Can you guess what this movie is:


  1. I second Léna's guess!

    And I think date night sounds fun and it reminds me of Laverne in Scrubs :)

    Have fun at the raw potluck, looking fwd to seeing what you make.

  2. of course! rain man! glad to hear your back is better. it sounded awful to be in that much pain. and i can totally sympathise with noisy neighbour aggression syndrome (nnas) as i'm extremely sensitive to things that make me uncomfortable and are out of my control in my own home. what on earth am i going to make for the raw potluck? what are you doing?

  3. Peanut butter on salad sandwiches sounds really good. When I travel I often put peanut butter and veggie burger sandwiches together for lunch. And I love vegemite on salad sandwiches. But I will have to try this new combo!

    Glad to hear your back is a bit better!
