Post hoc, ergo... my past...

Okay... here are some images from my past... in lieu of a proper post. egads. This is not the way a blogger should be. A friend who regularly reads my blog asked me if I've been running around naked since the last post.
...oh ha bloomin' ha.

I just haven't had time to take images. Well, actually I have had the time but not the inclination. Or the inclination but not the memory, it will be close to midnight and I'll remember that I forgot! sigh.  I have/had all these grand ideas about filler posts but...hmm...as you can see that didn't come to fruition. 

Anyway, this is me.  These images are 15-20 years old.  Don't judge me.  Twas the time, the era.  I used to be a model.  Apparently smiling was not my thing.  These are some print images that were used for editorials, ads and posters.

Loved the catwalk.  Because I'm just such a wallflower you know?




My real job.  I still work as a print journalist but I used to be a TV and radio journo.  And a jazz singer.  That's one of my old band leaders.  Yes I'm wearing saris.  I'm Indian.  It's my thing.  That orange one is vintage, belonged to my mother, in the 60s.  I still have it, wore it to a wedding recently.  Oh the mundane details of my life.  Lucky you.  J




I was also a Jedi... True story.  Next post.  You'll see.  kisses darlings...
