I wrote my About Page in 2012, and now it’s 2017, and I came back in to update it. Jzhoosh it up. Sexify it. Do like, the modern remix. But I quite like what 2012-Kate had to say, so I’ll leave it, and will just add some comments in.
2012: Hello! I’m Kate. Welcome to one of the places on the internet where you can look inside my head. I say “one of”… hopefully it is just this and Facebook, and there are no scanned x-rays of my brain floating around.
2017: In hindsight I don’t know what the concern was about the x-rays. I would happily share an x-ray of my brain. Maybe then Elon Musk can use it to create a sexy robot version of me for a robot take on Multiplicity (sidenote: does that film hold up?) As for the pictures, I still have the same hairstyle and wear the same jewellery except now that dress is definitely not going to fit me. The past is created just to haunt us.
2012: Where were we? Yes. Ok. I’m Kate, but we covered that already. I live in Wellington, New Zealand. You can belatedly attend my blog launch party. Read some haiku reviews of public toilets. Read the thirteen-part Fiji Travel Journal. Shake your head at how I handled a really bad hangover. Or just begin at the front page, read every single post, and leave lots of comments. Go on. A little part of you wants to do that.
2017: I love that I actually already had “Where we were?”, like I knew my future self would pop in to make comments. Go you, 2012-Kate, you’ve got your head screwed on right. I now live in Melbourne, Australia; but Wellington will always be one of the special homes I keep in my heart. And I am just as transparently desperate for comments and attention.
2012: I publish a new blog almost every weekday… I just get giddily excited about getting to write stuff down then sharing it with you guys.
2017: Oh, little blackbird. How innocent you were. Every goddamn weekday?! You can tell I started this on an adrenaline high and it immediately tapered off and became unmanageable and I left it alone for many, many years.
2012: But don’t trust me! Trust other readers. Some reviews for this blog:
“The best ones are when you talk about nothing” – my sister
“Some of the posts are really long” – a friend
“Yes, I have read it” – my dad
“I look forward to accidentally saying something profound so I get a mention in your reviews” – my mother
2017: These are flat out hilarious, I love my family.
2017: Still stands. I’m so glad you’re here!

I love your blog! I am so glad I clicked over here after you commented on one of my blogs :0) I will be following from the USA!
Thank you! I’m chuffed, your blog is great 🙂
What do you call an Arab dairy farmer……A milk sheikh 😉 Hi Kate I am following you ina bloggy sort of way. Have fun. Ralph x
I like that you specified it was in a “bloggy sort of way”, just in case I might think you meant you are literally stalking me. Thanks for the heads up, Ralph 😛
Kateeee!!! How CAN I stalk you. I am an Englishman up to my neck in castanets, flamenco dancers, sun, sea and sangria in Spain and you are in Wellington boots in NZ. 😉 Hugs (in a bloggy sort of way). Ralph x
Sounds like you’re in quite the predicament. Maybe if you ask one of the flamenco dancers to hoist you up you can get out? I imagine it’d be hard to breathe.
I am in terrible predicament……they are all sweaty male flamenco dancers. They heard you. Hoisted me out and thrown me into the Mediterranean sea. 😉
saying hey 🙂
Great blog…. and now I want a milkshake
Fabulous! I should be getting milkshake company sponsorship or something…
What a fantastic blog have I’ve only been reading for 5 mins and already laughed out loud twice ( people on the train giving me a few funny looks 🙂 ) Looking foreward to visiting more 🙂
Embarrassing people on public transport makes my day. Seriously. Does this make me a bad person?!
Yes yes it does :)….luckily for you I am well able to embarrass myself with zero help and will therefore happily keep reading with the ” er I’ll never see them again attitude”
