Wildlife Spotting

I was camping at Bay of Fires and one of our friends had brought along packets of Tiny Teddies as treats for the kids. When was the last time you ate one of those?
For me it has been at least 5 years - and so I was ridiculously pleased to be offered a packet.

The biscuits don't taste like anything special so why was I so happy?
Not because they remind me of my childhood.
Tiny Teddies didn't exist when I was a kid.
And not because they are sold as Nyam-Nyam Teddy in Indonesia which means Good Time Teddy according to the Wikipedia entry.
I only just read that now.
All I can put it down to is: the idea of mini biscuits shaped like huggable toys inspired by the not so huggable real thing.

Seriously brain, what is up with that?

Like a Boss

Not being well recently provided a shining opportunity to get up to season with the New Doctor. I caught up on Season 6 of Doctor Who by watching episodes...

I have also been re-appreciating how much I like that term - with or without the ironic subtext: A lot. And mostly with.

Keeping it Awesome

Do you love Instagram?

Casey Neistat loves Instagram and in this clip he explains why and shares some great tips about how to keep it awesome.

Instagram: it's not about the pictures it's about the sharing...
it's the documentation of life that makes me me care.
I don't share Neistat's interest in Bieber but I do wholeheartedly share the Instagram love, for the reasons quoted above; for the ease and fun of capturing moments, and more-than-moments. 
Because it's so easy to capture small things, I pay greater attention to life (mine, others, everything!) including the stuff that will never make it into Instagram photo streams.

And if that's not half the point of living then what is?

Write Here Right Now by mrseaves

I look at it two ways; some times I wish I could have slipped under the radar and not let my lettering and typography work reach the world until I had more time to hone my skills and experiment out of the spotlight,
at other times I realise many opportunities may not have come my way if it weren’t for this video.
