Day 16: #somethingnew
This is a ring I bought from Etsy, by a New Zealand designer. Yes, it’s human teeth set with a solid silver band. I imagine I’ll have more to say about what it feels like to wear someone else’s teeth when it arrives. My mum thinks it’s disgusting, yet at the same time, she’s offered me some of my baby teeth to have made into jewelry. Hypocritical to the bone!
Day 17: #time
Yeah, FaceTime! Hehe! I don’t FaceTime much, but when I do, I like to do it sitting on the couch next to the person I’m FaceTiming. It was really hard to get a good photo of both of us, mostly because both of our faces pale in comparison to my really pretty hair.
Day 18: #drink
James Gorman, who is both my lawyer and the world’s worst lawyer, came to town recently and Ms Nomes got a bunch of us together to go to Gardel’s to drink to his health. Then we ate small hotdogs and hamburgers to his health, just for good measure.
Day 19: #somethingyouhatetodo
I hate to admit that it’s Sunday night and tomorrow is Monday and this work and thus Unfunday 🙁 These days I go to Sunday night jazz and drink cider and try and ignore the fear rising in my stomach. I don’t like Mondays.
Day 20: #handwriting
1. A copy of the latest live Swans album, signed and doodled on by Michael Gira himself. This edition sold out, but I think there’s going to be a standard version for sale over at Young God Records soon. 2. My last tattoo. It is my sister’s handwriting, as interpreted by a tattoo artist. It says ‘At sunrise the monkeys will fly’.
Day 21: #afavephotoofyou
This photo is, I think, from last winter, but it fit my criteria of being an iPhone photo. Look at that fringe! I give good hair. I love winter and its fringe-ness and boot wearing.
Day 22: #whereyouwork
The corporate monolith.
Day 23: #shoes
These are The Jessicas, my very fancy shoes made by Jessica Simpson. My mum has a tape of me, when I was about four or five, singing ‘Fash, fash, fash, fash … FASHION!’. It was inevitable I’d end up being so stylish.
Day 24: #insideyourbathroomcabinet
Whoops. I forgot. But I did two #handwriting photos! Totally counts.
Day 25: #green
A few weeks ago my family got together to scatter my grandmother’s ashes in Manly. I picked one of her brooches to remember her by, Toad from Toad Hall. I kind of love that it’s a bit chipped here and there, which was bound to happen when she wore it as often as she did and hugged so many grandchildren with it pinned to her cardigan. I miss her.
Day 26: #night
This was taken on one of the last nights I lived in Marrickville. I’d walked this part of the street so many times over my many years in the ‘hood, but it never felt as fresh as this night, nor the sky so big.
Day 27: #somethingyouate
Yep. Still not great at the cooking. And this is a lie. I couldn’t face eating this.
Day 28: #money
Dear Americans, this is how you do it.
Day 29: #somethingyou’relisteningto
Still in love with the latest Puscifer album.
And that was it for February! This is a really fun project, massive props to Fat Mum Slim for setting it up!
