i lied

its a problem i have, lying. i do it without even thinking. doesnt matter what its about, someone will ask me something and i lie will come out as an answer. sometimes i'll tell the truth afterwards, sometimes i'll let the lie answer for me

i lied

im not one of the bravest girls alive

i am so fucking scared

i dont know what to do with myself

i want to go

i want to hide

i dont want it to happen

i dont want him to win

i dont want him to win again

i dont know what to do anymore

im not brave anymore

when i got home i was greeted with this, as i am most days

banjo and clancy

two more little faces that make me smile
im good with you

a letter to someone in particular, but please, all can read it

dear truth fairy,

here i am, fighting my own battles like you asked. i dont know who you are...i can see that you're in adelaide and have visited my blog quite a lot, but apart from that, you are a mystery to me. and by the sounds of it, a very thin, svelte mystery. probably muscular and toned too, and you've never sat in your lounge room, watching tv with your friends and eating cake.

and you know what? i feel kind of sorry for you because of that. im sorry that you dont have the kind of friends who can forget about weight issues and the pressure to be thin all the time. im sorry that you cant lower yourself to my level and sit on the floor instead of at the table with a proper knife and fork and placemats. im sure you have some sort of butler who sets the dining room for you? your friends sit at the other end of the table and you make polite conversation about the weather? then you run off to the bathroom and vomit out all your food i suppose, so you can stay thin and beautiful.

no, this isnt a private website where you cant comment. i encourage comments, and i welcome them. what i dont encourage or welcome is people calling me fat. im not fat. im not a sickly size 6, nor am i even a size 10. what i am is the average size for a girl. size 12 to 14. hello world, i am admiting to you what size clothes i wear. i wear clothes marked 'large' because of people like you, truth fairy, who insist that people be boney and twig like.

im sorry that you saw my post and decided we gorged ourselves. im sorry it repulsed you. i had 2 toasted sandwhiches and a slice of cake. what did you have for tea on monday night? a small side salad? i actually ate some special k cereal for breakfast the next day. then i had some nice soup for lunch and chicken for tea. inbetween i drank lots of water and i even ate an apple. the cereal i ate standing up because i was getting ready to go out that morning, but everything else i ate at the table. please feel better about me now? am i as good a person as you? please let it be so.

oh, and thanks for helping me. i do feel so much better after whining about you and how you make me feel, and i hope, in some special way, that makes you feel better too because thats what this world is all about, isnt it? helping people, making them feel better, bettering the world and making it a happier place to live. hopefully without any fat people eating on the floor.

just as you choose to stay anonomous, uncontactable and without a website link for us to read and see what you're really like, i choose to be me.

my name is carly. i have this blog where i write what i feel and what i've been doing lately. on monday night i ate my dinner on the floor and had a great time.
i am a size 12-14 and dont complain about my weight. sure i have 'fat'days, but im healthy and thats the main thing. what i choose to put on this site is what you know me by and i really hope that the majority see me as more than fat.

truth fairy, all i have to go on are your comments. so, so far i can tell that you arent willing to show us what you look like, what your opinions are about anything except eating on the floor. you have something against people size 12 and over. and you like to wank.

wanking i have no problem with. its an enjoyable passtime, and it tones the tummy muscles. im sure yours are rock hard. its the rest of it i have a problem with, and i have every right to.

as i said before, there is nothing here saying dont comment, but now there is this

i dont appreciate you calling me fat. i dont appreciate calling my friends fat. until you are willing to discuss this on fair grounds, ie with me having the same background knowledge about you as you have on me, then i would appreciate it if you stayed away from my blog.

thankyou for your time

love carly
and then i got told i was fat

i've been pretty happy lately. im down to 2 75mg tablets of effexor a day now and im coping. i've only lost it at the kids a couple of times, and it has been confirmed by other people that they are being particularly persnickety lately. i've been keeping my house relativly tidy. i've not been messaging people i shouldnt. i've been returning emails. ive been having pleasant dreams. i havent been cutting. i've been going out, not hiding in my house.

a lot of this has been due to spending time with tom. he makes me happy and sparkly and i've been enjoying myself a lot. the way he looks at me makes me feel special and princessy and im feeling good about the time we have together. i know it has to end, but i think i'm dealing with it ok, especially for now.

i havent really been thinking about the court case, but when i have ive been ok. i keep telling myself i'll be fine, and that theres nothing to be scared of. and then i remember that its actually not very far away at all. december. early december. the first week of december. its only 2 months away.

nina from the dpp called me the other day and we organised a court tour. this is when i began to lose it. i could feel all my good work, all my keeping strong and brave starting to unravel. we went inside a court room and i got to sit in the witness box. to get to the witness box you have to walk right past the box where he will be court that picture is an old one. now they gave some thick faintly tinted glass around the box that he'll be sitting in. and i can have a screen up between us. i said that i would have it there and use it if i needed it, but that was before i knew what the layout of the room was. i'll definatley be having the screen now. i'll be sitting right next to him. who designed these rooms? my mum isnt going to be able to talk with him right there next to her! i dont think i'll be able to either

i left there and i messaged people. i couldnt find anyone who was nearby. simon helped me last time i tried to find the court, so i messaged him. he reminded me there was nothing to be scared of...just an insect, remember.

tom messaged me, that made me happier too but i realy needed someone. a body. somebody to hold me and say it was going to be ok, not just electronic words in my palm.
i caught the tram down to matts work, crying all the way, and when i got there i was treated to information about l. i dont mind, i really dont. yeah, there's a part of me thats jealous, but only because its not me making him happy anymore. but it hasnt been me making him happy for years, so really its not my place. but it was just the timing, it may sound selfish but i needed it to be about me at that time. i dont know if im coping now. i dont know if i can do it. i dont know if i can sit there with him that close to me, and tell them what he did to me.

then i came home and read the comments of my last post. so thanks truth fairy and fat albert, you just added to my most pleasant day. now i feel like hiding again because not only am i a bad person who bad things happen too, im also fat and disgusting.

you know what? i know im not those things, but it only takes a little reminder, a little push for me to start believing again.

last night i dreamed of car crashes, of bikes smashing into cars, no one stopping to help, just keep on driving, just get out of there...just get out of here

you have no idea what we just ate

so i'll show you

toastie toastiesmilky way and snickers messkirsty and THE CAKEcakecakecaketummy

please notice kirsty's sock in a couple of photos

that is all

i must roll to bed now
weekend wrap up

west beach road

despite our best intentions, i spent the weekend on west beach road which, according to personwhosnameimustnevermention does not exist but here is the undeniable proof!!!! take that, beard man!

tom moved house this weekend and now lives even closer to the beach than me. i was going to take a photo of the view from his bedroom window but the sea was the same colour as the sky in a grey way, not a blue way, so the photo wouldnt have been very good. just know that he can see the sea. its a really nice place....the only photo i have of it is this one tomand its pretty much just a photo of tom with no shirt on. oops. that boy is always losing his clothes. anyway, its a nice place that he's sharing with tushar and even though its further away than his old place its easier to find and we all know that simple is best when it comes to me and directions to places.

face paintmy weekend started out on friday night when x went to the school disco. he actually participated in the dancing and the face painting and the spray painted hair. my little man is growing up. this is the only photo he'd let me take of his face though to prove he had it painted.glowthey also gave out glow sticks to the kids. trying to breed a bunch of clubbers. when we got home, i took the photos then put the kids to bed. x came out after about 5 minutes and said he had something to tell me. apparently he'd snuck out during the disco so he could see the glow stick working outside, and teachers had to come out and look for him. i told him it wasnt the best thing to do, and that he knew that, but thatnkyou for letting me know....back off to bed.
"but i was so naughty mum *sniffle, tears rolling down his cheeks* i dont deserve to go to bed, you shuld make me stay up"
doesnt work that way, bucko

so saturday i dropped the boys off with personwhosnameimustnevermention's mum and sister at gloria jeans. e has the funniest, cheekiest sense of humour. he asked where we were going, i said 'to see granny and auntie r at gjs', he says 'oh...grandma and aaron at cjs' and laughs his little head off and runs away.
the i drove to west beach road and met up with tom and tush at their new place and took tom op shopping for bed stuff. i was supposed to go to jasons birthday party that night, but i'd spoken to alison earlier and we were gonna meet up later in the city. i was all set to go to crank for a while then mosey on down to supermild to see craig and ross but we had to have tea first. tom made spaghetti bolognaise. minus spaghetti and tomatos. mehehe. i made him toastie toasties for tea sunday night so im not much better. ooh, remind me about toastie toasties.
so yeah, all set to go out, but we fell asleep and i didnt wake up till about 3 so we didnt go out.

sunday was a day of first experiences for tom.he experienced what it was to be a librarian and then we went back to my place for toastie toasties and a night of australian idol and detective goran. he's such a quick learner. by the end of it, he was telling laura gissaro to fuck off before i was slap that bitch now, dont try and tell me you looked at that photo and didnt want to reach into your computer screen and stab that girls eyes out. look at that patronising git. she isnt feeling sorry for poor natalie, she's silently praising satan for all the money her family has so they can vote their little spawn through week after week.
unfortunatley i dont do australaian idol justice. i cannot sit here and go through each performance as i get side tracked too easily. i cant go 5 seconds without calling mark holden a cockhead or telling some one to fuck off. if you want to read about idol the way it should be read, go here, just come back afterwards so you can keep reading la la alaalalaaaaaaa, hmm hmmmmm, bebapbadoooooo...hey, maybe i *should* audition for australian idol next year...hmm.....lalalalaaaaalalalalaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

ok, good, you're back

sorry, what? oh yeah! toastie toasties, thanks. tonight, vicki and kirsty are coming over and we are going to eat gross yummy food and watch the australian idol live verdict show!! we are so those two girls from the telstra ads. kirsty is bringing home made icecream and we're gonna attempt a recipe i saw in a book some lady borrowed from work.

this + this + this, this and whatever else we decide might be yum

superheroes were kids once, too

not many of you will know this, but spiderman was once an angry little boy. i know you've all seen tobey maguire acting out his geekiness in the movies, but i'm talking about *before* his parents died, *before* he went to live with his aunt and uncle.

he was a wild and crazy, untamable child, prone to mood swings and uncontrolable fits of rage and tears. here are two such examples

spiderman as a child spiderman as a child

now, on the other hand, my son e is a picture of serenity. hows the serenity.

sunlight in a jar

and x is also a beautiful child. he just asks lots of questions. like, 'why are you taking a photo of me, mum? seriously....why?'
i wanna take you to a gay bar gay bar gay bar

on friday night i made vicki scoff her dinner down and drive me to the city via the bottle-o so i could buy alcohol. as the sms said, 'no tea, alcohol'. i think i made my wishes pretty clear.

miki and baz dropped me at the duke of york for a night of dancey dancey, but when i got there, even tho it was quite late, there werent many people there and no one was dancing. that was disappointing. i really felt like dancing, and dammit! no one was dancing!

so instead, i went to a gay bar and watched gay cowboys shake their sexy bums

and got caught staring at the gay cowboys eating pudding dancing

AND i got to experience the wonderful cleo cosmopolitan in action. fuck shes hot. and she touched my boobs. and i touched hers. very squishy. i dont know what she makes them out of but they're very nice. it was hard not to look at them since in nher towering heels they were at eye level with me.
a bi boy called me darling and kissed my cheek. it was all very surreal. ive not really experienced 'gay adelaide' as such. there were quite a few people there who looked very familiar.

after cleo trounced about the stage in her sexy way, we decided to leave because the music was hideous and was making me angry. i checked my phone and a nice drunk boy had messaged me so we drove over to the worldsend and drank alcohol. i got asked for ID on my way in and i laughed and thanked her. she also wanted to check my bag and its funny cos i had three smirnoffs in there and she just let me go right in. woohoo! no paying $8 a bottle for me, thankyou very much.

so i introduced miki and baz to the elvin boy and they were impressed by his cuteness and his glasses and the fact that he says im sexy. hear that? im sexy.

there were a lot of interesting games going on that i didnt quite understand. something with a peg, a lot of shoe steeling, a lost bag? i dont know, but everything worked out in the end and we were on our way home by about 3, i think.
the thing i dont like about share houses is that you cant guarentee that there wil be tea bags that you can use. and that was the very thing i discovered when we got back to toms, no tea for me. he shall have to learn that tea is a very important part of my life. its up there with sleeping and reading. oooh, reading, im reading fingersmith at the moment. its really good. it was on the abc a little while ago, im hoping i can get in on dvd. ha! dvd. we finished watching we can be heroes last night. bloody brilliant.


i slept the whole night in his arms

saturday was fun. lots of lazing around and kissing. lovely. we went to the brickworks, walked to the city and caught the train back to my place.
i'd like to tell you what we did, but id rather wait for the photos. and its not rude, you disgusting people. minds out of the gutter,thankyou.

i went to my first coctail party. i felt very sophisticated in an underdressed way, but i was soon drunk and dancing and having a lovely time. i also felt like a foreigner as most of the party was german

'are you two...?'
'together? yes'

cue me blushing like crazy and getting all shy and embarrassed.

i participated in getting a room of boys to stop and stare when a girl asked me to kiss her. it was apparently a very popular part of the evening.

and quite a few people who were there have visited this site, shout out if you were there, and send me any photos you may have.


last night marked the rerunning of the last episode of last seasons queer as folk in preperation for next weeks return to fanfuckingtastic monday night viewing.
there will be homemade icecream cake, cheese, and snickers and mars toastie toasties.

you are all invited

And you know that I love you here and now, not forever
I can give you the present, I don't know 'bout the future,

scrollig down my bolg???? what the fuck? basil, miki, we have a new song name.

i dont think it is possible for me to dislike a television show more than i dislike dancing with the stars.
i dont think i have anything against the show sure the stars put in a shitload of practice to dance like that. i know i couldnt do it as i have absolutely no coordination and do everything to my own beat. the thing that i dislike about it so much is that it puts all saints on half an hour later and that really shits me.

all of you out there in blog land may not know of my total adoration for all saints. i love this show. and i have for many many years. i was wary of them letting terry leave, but its been fine. i could have punched someone when mitch died, but it continued and its still as good as ever. i dont know that there will ever be another team like jarred, bron and that other guy who was a real life doctor, you remember him? but its a bloody good show nonetheless.

also, i loathe darryl sommers

as you can see, i didnt watch video hits or listen to the "popular" radio stations so i have no idea about most of these songs. it may be an american list too, with songs that didnt make it over here. either way, it was a crap list with lots of crap songs

just to reitterate, i listen to better music than you

"i think it's dark and it looks like rain" you said
"and the wind is blowing like it's the end of the
world" you said "and it's so cold it's like the
cold if you were dead" and then you smiled for
a second.

funnily enough, im not using that quote because im sad or sooky or depressed or any number of things. im using it because i have a cold, and if i was dead, i wouldnt be feeling as crappy as i am right now.

its midnight. and any of you who know me know that i dont work well past about 10 o'clock. i'll be fine one minute and you'll look away and when you look back, sad carly will have taken over. and she doesnt take no for an answer...ive just spent about 20 minutes looking for photos of me asleep and covered in texta drawings but i cant find them. ask vicki. she probably knows where they are.

its taken me forty five minutes to write this. im getting grumpy and my back hurts

why does my computer go into 'find' mode while im typing? stupid

ok, ive started whinging, im gonna try and sleep

bonne nuit everybody
when you find yourself in a movie

Sam: OK, so... so... sometimes I lie. I mean, I'm weird, man. About random stuff too, I don't even know why I do it. It's like... it's like a tick, I mean sometimes I hear myself say something and think, Wow, that wasn't even remotely true.

we are each here to fill our own small silence with dancing

my trip started off pretty well. it was a lovely day in adelaide, nice and warm. when i landed in melbourne it was freezing, something like 4 degrees. ridiculously cold. airplane boysanyway, i was seated next to two boys who were flying over for some recording. i took a photo of us just after the one with the hat said he was convinced we were going to die because the wings were wobbling.

parker lewiswhen i got to melbourne, adrian wasnt there. yeah, i know. but it turned out he was there, he was just on the other side of the road behind a pole. we drove back to his place to drop off my things and so i could give him some can go see adrians blog to read how thankful he is for his present. i really do rule at giving presents.

me on adrians bedwe went looking for somewhere for dinner but nothing was open. well, nothing that looked appealing to me anyway. there was one of those authentic chinese places that sold ants crawling up a tree or something like that. i didnt want to chance it so we went to safeway and bought canned soup and bread rolls instead. we also bought a packet of cookie bears. yay cookie bears! after tea we went to bed
the next morning i had the best breakfast i have ever had. it was so good infact that i needed to take a photo of it to preserve its goodness.the best breakfast ever feast your eyes, people, feast your eyes let me describe it to you. home made, seeded bread, toasted to perfecting and buttered to perfection too. a hash brown. a roasted tomato. some green green spinach. good bacon, not just strips of fat with a bit of meat on them, real bacon. perfect eggs. and on top, a toasted and buttered baguette. add to that a couple of cappucinos and you have the most amazing breakfast ever ingested. adrian had sausage and mushroom with his to. heavenly. i want that breakfast right now actually. yeah, thatd go down real nicely.

we wandered the streets of melbourne town. popping in and out of shops and admiring their wares. i dont think i bought anything at that stage, i just did lots of looking. here are some things that i looked at:

cripled ladycrippled lady with red smiley jeans

i know where i am!me realising i knew where i was on our way from theresas to bridge road.

melbourne bloggingwhen we ran out of things to look at we did what all nerds do. we went to the library and blogged

after theresa finished work, we headed on down to the nash and had a couple of the nashwe met her lovely friend bridget who has go go danced on stage with cyndii lauper and declared that she felt like becoming a lesbian. did i fall in love? yes i did

later that night we went to the housewarming party that i've already posted about, but here are some pics for you to take a looksy at


as you will have already read, i slept a lot of the next day. i had a good breakfast then too and bought a dress which i look very sexy in. and it worked for me last saturday night as you've already read. and then spent the monday with theresa, wandering around the streets having lots of coffees and lots of talks. it was really good. we bumped into hannah and mika, had more coffee, talked more then went to hannahs for a yummy stirfry. thanks hannah!! your name is the same frontways and backways!!

if you look in the background on the left hand side you can see a very cute girl. i was actually trying to take photos of her but had adrian pose so it didnt look too obvious

here is the photo that i took when i forgot all about being too obvious

and lastly, as we flew into adelaide airport, i leaned over the people sitting next to me and took these photos.
