If i had a hearing impaired girlfriend I would get her this silver necklace.

It says 'I love you' in American Sign Language.

Went to that Mt Martha Music in the Country party. We couldn't erect our tent so we ended up spending a dreamy night sleeping under some big old tree.

I found this sterling silver napkin holder at Meade's Antique Shop in Mt Martha. I am going to cut it open to make a cuff.

I was initially excited because I thought it said 'Butt'.

Whenever I feel low energy I put on "When I Hear Music" at full blast.

Debbie Deb has been cited as influence on artists such as Gwen Stefani and Janet Jackson.

Debbie was born in Brooklyn. New York, and raised in North Miami Beach, Florida.

A music aficionado from a young age, she was "discovered" at the age of 16 by producer Pretty Tony, at a Miami record store where she was working.

The first song Debbie recorded was "When I Hear Music," which she co-wrote with Pretty Tony. Released on the Jam Packed record label, the song has since become a staple in clubs and on dance radio stations and mixshows. Other hits followed, including "Lookout Weekend", "I Wanna Work It Out", "There's A Party Going On", "I Wanna Dance".

Nearly every Debbie Deb track follows lyrical terrain of 'life is sad/bad but if I go to a party and there's music I can dance and have fun'.

However, Debbie was overweight and suffered from low self-esteem, and found her sudden fame difficult to cope with. She was crushed when her record company decided not to put her picture on the sleeves of her records and, in a Manillli Vanilli-esque move, even hired an "impostor" to perform and pose as Debbie Deb. As a result, she made little, if any, money from her hit singles, and was so hurt by the experience that she stopped singing for years, relying on her work as a hairdresser to make ends meet.

Debbie finally resurfaced on the recording scene in 1995 with the album She's Back.

Now living near Philadelphia, she continues to work as a hair stylist.

Mmm yummy spicy lamb boreks. The food here is amazing and great value.

My (vegan) favourites:
1. Broad Bean salad with Giant Cous Cous. ($5.00 AU) I am not sure what the green sauce on the beans is. The lady told me she didn't know (yeh right). I think it might be Olive Oil and tahini? Its a mind blowing mixture of textures, colours and tasty goodness.
2. Zucchini rolls ($2.50AU) - m├╝cver (zucchini pancakes) served with tabouleh and red cabbage.
3. Cabbage rolls. ($2.00 AU) The gelatinous cabbage leaves are stuffed with garlicky tomato rice.

Turkish shop at the Queen Victoria Market.

School of Seven Bells (often just SVIIB) is a three-piece band formed by Benjamin Curtis (musician) of Secret Machines, together with identical twins Alejandra and Claudia Deheza, formerly of On! Air! Library!. The band is named after the School of the Seven Bells, a mythical South American pickpocket training academy.

They kinda sound like the Cocteau Twins or My Bloody Valentine.

I like rainbows, crystals, coloured pencils, swimming, manifesting, visualising, poetry, going out for breakfast, graphic novels, air conditioning, miniature anything, clothing made from synthetic fabrics, travelling, travelling, staying in nice hotels, headphones, husbears + soft hands. I don't like people who make me feel tired.
