It’s been a while since my last ‘derp’ post, and it felt like time! For this post there’s a theme: derping with parasols. Because why not?
(Derp post 1; Derp post 2)
A few years old now, this photo is immediately dated by my black hair and fringe. (What happened to that top? I really liked it!) Hylas caught a great expression here, with my eyes closed and my mouth partway through changing position:
Sometimes you just need a drink. And when it has a name like this, of course I’m going to try it out! (Also, ice cream soda – yum.)
Experience the blast!
I arrived at Hylas’ late on Thursday evening – and was greeted by a large fuzzy and rubbery bunny (who gifted me with delicious chocolate). This delighted me no end!

As an added bonus, he wriggled his tail at me, too
Let me set the scene: It’s late on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. Hyperbius and I are sitting in the car, stuck in rush-hour traffic. I’m behind the wheel, he’s in the passenger seat with all his various work detritus at his feet. Music is playing, conversation is flowing. Kisses are happening occasionally when the car is stopped – because, yum.
Then, waiting at the traffic lights, he leans down and gets something out of a box. I have no idea what it is. He tosses it into my lap – and it’s round and soft and green and nobbly.

You can blame Chintz Curtain for starting this – and Lunabelle for encouraging it! The three of us have embarked upon a journey to write atrocious, awful, horrible erotica. Up to 500 words of it. What’s wrong with us?
So, cider at hand and phrases I want to remember to use written down in a notepad (contributions from m’Lady and Hylas are included), here’s my attempt at banging out something really really bad for the “Euph-off” we’re all doing. I would say “enjoy”, but …
The last time I posted some of my ‘derp’ photos the response was unexpectedly positive – so I promised I’d do it again. Finally, here are some more of my not-so-good pictures, complete with closed eyes, stupid expressions, and strange poses:
Starting with both a stupid expression and a strange pose, this photo was taken back during my aquarium trip, where I was photographed by Delilah’s husband. The shark is a recommended photo opportunity, but I obviously did not make the most of it!
There are a lot of bills (aka advertising posters) plastered around Auckland, albeit for the most part in designated spaces. And one thing they do is brighten up the area – it’s definitely not a boring white wall any more once these are up!
Directly around the corner from the phone booth was a whole mess of them, and when I spotted one (with my surname!) that showed a model in a certain pose, I knew I was going to have fun with this Scavenger Hunt
A poem for Plumptious Pea, because she inspired me so!

to accept the length of loaf –
I was randomly noodling through my computer this morning, and stumbled across this post – written exactly 11 years ago today, in 2001. I’d been writing online for a little under a year at this point, and I was 24 years old…
Some explanations / clarifications after the post, for those curious. (The post is exactly as it was written and posted – no changes have been made, much though I’d love to!)
Yesterday afternoon Hylas, Kiana and I went on a grand Scavenger Hunt location trek in the central city – and had a fantastic time! We successfully tracked down and knocked off six sites (and if we failed in three others that we wanted to do, well, we still had a loads of fun).
The one fail that was particularly irking us was ‘graffiti’. I mean, it’s the city – there should be graffiti everywhere! But every place we could think of where there’s normally loads had been cleaned up, painted over, and generally made nice. Dammit! As we made our way home, we stopped off in a few other spots just in case. But no – the council had been busy here, too.keep looking »
