I was astounded that these important and intelligent people had written pages of notes and questions to ask and discuss with me. This is not false modesty - I just hadn't realised that people considered my blog and opinions and stuff as a really legitimate facet of my practice. They were so well researched and I can't believe I have had this opportunity to discuss my thoughts, ideas, and opinions for publication! We spoke for about an hour and a half, and I was all hoarse afterwards because I like never talk to anyone - but I really felt like it was the best interview I'd ever done, I was comfortable because I was in my own home, and the questions were perfect and I got to speak about everything from Woody Allen writing strong female characters like Annie Hall to my opinions on why I have an affinity with the '60s and '70s and everything everything EVERYTHING in between. It was such a fantastic experience for me and I'm so glad it's ended with me feeling excited and really positive.
The article and photos and stuff will be coming out in January of 2014. I will be sure to remind you when it's coming out, ha, so don't worry!
Other stuff that's going on - This weekend I'm going to Sydney with Pamela to perform at Jon's opening at Darren Knight Gallery. I'm really looking forward to it. I love our little getaways to Sydney, they're so fun - Georgie and I get to hang out and share a tiny hilarious hotel room together and eat junk food and laugh at stupid stuff. Woo hoo!
I've been working on lots of drawing stuff at home I guess, and also I gave myself a haircut the other day which I like. It's a fair bit shorter than what I've had lately but nothing too drastic. Here are some pictures from the past few days-ish. Oldest to newest ;)

I actually have these funny pics from my phone too:
|This is my dog Soda looking at me because he wanted some quiche. He jumped all over the NGV people so he was banished to outside.|
