To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:


Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

you, also, what, when, why, how, look, because, never

10 things i hate about you   safe sex equals respectful sex y’all

WHY MUST WE WAIT SO LONG   how i met your mother

The nation’s grandmother." - Prince Henry of Wales.

smartest business lady around (saved The Royals brand and in the process helped out a lot of charities)

She’s really nice and friendly and when I met her when I was 9 she asked each girl something - she spent a while chatting to the Girl Guide next to me (she was quite a bit older) about all of her badges and thanked us for our flowers and said that my birthmark was pretty






does anybody else think tired and sleepy mean two totally different things

sleepy is cute and dozing off and happy but tired is 10 cups of coffee and murder


uh that second one is me right now/forever while on production

like it is literally like someone drew my portrait right down to the topknot and massive coffee




I need feminism because most men’s restrooms still aren’t equipped with baby changing stations. As someone who was married to a man who had sole custody of his young son, I’m hyperaware that feminism means EQUALITY, not female superiority. Feminism should and does support a man’s right to be as much of a parent to his child(ren) as any mother is allowed/expected to be.

This is a constant problem for Mr. Tea and myself. We’ve got twins, so even though I can change one kid on the change table in the ladies’ room, he’s left standing sort of awkwardly in the lobby with a messy child while I change one, come back, and get the other.

Nobody’s suggesting that men aren’t parents, so the lack of change tables goes well beyond ‘gender role reinforcing’ and straight into ‘ridiculous’.

In at least one shopping centre at home there’s a parent’s room which is separate to the loos and if I remember correctly there’s at least one that’s in a disabled toilet that is separate as well. So maybe things are getting better in metropolitan Australia? My uncle was a stay at home Dad in the 90s so maybe i’ll ask him how he handled this problem. Interesting point to raise! An excellent of feminism = true equality.

life update:

  • production is actually going okay, the girls have finally gotten into the swing of things!
  • Although costume parade IS on Thursday and i’m still hella nervous that we won’t have costumes to present
  • So after I shop with Hannah for her pants tomorrow and check back in with the girls/attend whatever fittings are planned i’m going to check in with my lecturer and see if we can make parade more casual than normal since we don’t have a director and shorter than normal production timeline. Ugh i just wish we had til Monday. But I guess we never have enough time. I’m too sick this year to just bust this out
  • I’ve had a headache for three days and i’d really like it to go away please. ugh my plan to abstain from painkillers until I REALLY need them means i’m sore like all the time
  • I also feel nauseous 80% of the time and my body aches. I got to Wagga/production today and got sent home for a nap (since i looked wrecked) and didn’t end up going back since I passed out for six hours
  • My car’s oil was all okay this morning. Still need to book a service/oil change though
  • My Dad is still pretty sick but I don’t think he’ll get any worse. Yesterday wasn’t heaps restful - Monty hurt his mouth chewing on a coat hanger and Winston ate enough chocolate that could have really hurt him. At this point my personal life sounds like i’m making shit up
  • I’ve got an MRI booked for two weeks time. My neurology appointment is the next day so i’ll miss one show. I plan to see the Wednesday show and drive home after (use the performance energy to get me there)
  • My new medication is going okay i think - at least i haven’t cried in a few days. My antibiotics were going well but I am seriously coming down with a cold - sore throat, achy body, headaches, runny nose. My body has been threatening to make me puke all day
  • So many of my friends are so sad and I am so sorry that I cannot be present (in other words, there) for you and I apologise for that my lovelies
  • My theory class work is not getting done and I have no fucking clue when i’m going to get it done
  • This week is going to be really stressful and suck so hard. I am so tired and all I want to do is sleep
