Who is Pinky Casing?

I think Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter are all coming! (too far?)


The highly esteemed and entertaining Sanch from Living My Imperfect Life nominated me for one of these little beauties!

Thank you, Sanch.

Worth Casing Award

    And as most of you know that means I must bare my soul by answering a set of five interrogative questions...

So here goes. 

1. Why did you start blogging?

Basically it was because I thought I was a funny little thing. Mind you, no-one had ever told me I was funny. 

My kids certainly don’t think I’m in the least bit amusing. My students roll their eyes and make gagging motions at my jokes. Scotto, giggles at everything so he can’t be trusted. My colleagues think I’m probably one of the most annoying people on Earth and my dogs NEVER laugh at my witty barbs at their expense. 

But I think I’m funny and as one of my favourite philosophers said,

If you believe in yourself anything is possible: Miley Cyrus.


2. If your wardrobe could talk what would it say about you and tell us about your favourite or most worn item?

I have a pair of shorts. They’re elastic-waisted and balloon around my hips in a most unalluring manner (I made up that word, unalluring but you know what I mean). Sometimes I wear them for three months at a time without washing them but I always have clean undies on. 

 I only put them on after work (the same time as I’m ripping off my bra in a contortionist feat which would make Houdini cower behind his Mum’s skirts) so if you add up the actual time I’m wearing them between washes it’s probably only two months. 

One and a half tops...

My wardrobe would probably say to me...

“Pinky, honey, there are some folks here who’ve long outstayed their welcome. The Eighties called and want their stone wash leather jacket back. They also want those lace up boots which can no longer accommodate Paula, the bunion on your right foot.”



3.  What’s on your Worth Casing list?

(a) Which way (up or down??) to scroll from Channel 7 to Channel 10 on the remote control without having to go through SBS, ABC, WIN, ABC2, ABC3, SBS2, SBS3, ONE, TVSN, ELEVEN, ASPIRE, 7two, 7mate, TV4ME, GEM…



(b) How I can put things away in my bedside table drawer so that next time I try to open the bloody thing it won’t only open to one centimetre due to an infuriating obstruction. It forces me to blindly ferret around for thirty minutes in order to investigate what’s jamming the bloody thing. This event inconveniently occurs whenever I urgently need to find a pen to write down a rare and brilliant blog post idea which fleetingly passes through my grey matter at the speed of light and will invariably be gone by the time I get the bloody drawer open which is why I have to write about trivial stuff like this.


(c) The exact time I need to pull out of my driveway in the morning so I can catch the fifteen 'synchronised' green traffic lights between my house and work. I've been doing it for nine years now and am still to hit pay dirt.



4. If you had a theme song what would it be and why?

Hmmm… A tough one.

If you asked my kids, it would be “Burn the Witch” by Queens of the Stone Age. If you care to listen...

If you asked Scotto, it would probably be “Even Witches Like to Go Out Dancing” by Graveyard Train.


If you asked my ten year old students, it would probably be “Wicked Old Witch” by John Fogerty... for your listening pleasure.

If you asked my blogging buddies it would be this…



I think my blogging buddies are the closest to the mark, you lovely things you!


5. What’s your idea of the perfect date night?

Jon Hamm, James McEvoy and Kit Harrington all fighting over who gets to pour my champers, peel my prawns and find the correct TV channel for me.

Nah… just joking. It would be Scotto doing all those things (with no bitter complaining and snatching the remote from my hand) whilst wearing his ‘special occasion’ sarong.

I'm dobbing in five bloggers for this award! 

If you've already done it, tell me to shove it!


















and... someone who I know won't play along...

Lee-anne from Is It Just Me? because I know she's too busy finishing her book, but one can only try!



Please leave a comment if you'd like to see a photo of Scotto's 'special occasion' sarong... or not.
