almost fully recovered.

No posts for a while - I've had the dreaded lurgy. It wasn't so bad. The arrival of a brand new LCD and Foxtel coincided with my cold so I channel surfed my way to television heaven. The Cosby Show, Northern Exposure, early 90s The Bill, Scrubs, Gilmore Girls, The Mary Whitehouse Experience, Flight of the Conchords - I heart you all.

Not to mention Sudafed. Thanks to my friendly local pharmacist I got my hands on the HARD stuff not this new-fangled phenylephrine rubbish they're pushing. And not a moment too soon - the first night of my musical (sans Sudafed, avec new formula Codral) I managed to miss the tissue and blow my nose all the way down the inside of my sleeve to my elbow. EWWW. And I'm not even kidding. That jumper? It's being incinerated. Along with my left arm.

Anyway, I'm feeling much better now. All institutions with which I'm affiliated (my bank, my doctor, my phone company, my insurance company) seem to be ganging up on me in an attempt to send me crawling back to the couch, defeated. But it's not going to work, not this time, not on your nelly. Why? Dum da da DA! Because I found jeans that make my bum look good. All is again right in the world.

I'm glad you're back - I've been missing you. That "undecided" post kept popping up saying - HA! no new posts for YOU!

Em, I'm so glad to hear you've found jeans that make your bum look good. It makes the world a better place to live in :o) Are they skinny leg or bootcut?

Hi Els - it's nice to be missed! =)

Molly - they're high-waisted flares actually! It turned out the answer to the skinny-jeans/big-bum issue was to go for the exact opposite trend.

Although I still don't think they're as high-waisted as jeans used to be before the low-cut epidemic, and they're Country Road which makes me feel a bit mum.

They were the first pair I tried on once I realised the old ones are dead. How novel! What a relief not to have to go through the no-jeans-fit-me-saga again. Although i'm a little worried - they fit perfectly now, so I'm a bit scared they're going to stretch out to less perfect...

I borrowed season 1 of Northern Exposure from the library cos I remember you said it was good and now I'm pretty much hooked! It's very sweet, and I love the 90s fashion.. so thanks for the tip. And yay for bum flattering jeans, best feeling ever..

Oh good how awesome is it!? It really gets going around season 3 when they got commissioned for longer seasons. I'm so glad you like it!
