Dear ISEAns,

Dear ISEAns........At ISEA Singapore I presented an artist talk entitled " I am so off myFace: I used to be the oldest geek grrl in the world but I lost my geek and now I am just the oldest grrl in the world". In 2011 I will attempt to get my geek back. Resplendent in sash proclaiming my status as " Beauty in residence", I will attend events, rub shoulders and participate in the greatest gathering of geeks in the world. I will blog the results.

So if you see me across a crowded room, please HELP ME!!

love Di Ball

beauty can be time consuming

As I count the days till I leave, I am consumed with beauty. In the words of Dolly Parton, "it takes a lot of money to look this cheap". And I am spending money money money. I have had my hair bleached and styled, I have bought my Easton Pearson off the shoulder gem, my Foxyon Danger caftan and top, organised jewellery, a smart umbrella and scarves. I have lost 20kgs. I am off today for a manicure nad pedicure.

More important, though, for me is my beauty sash and tiara. Here there is both good and bad news. The company making the sash are truly hopeless and I may just have to spend my time on the plane flihjt crafting puffy paint on to a piece of ribbon. BUT THE TIARA IS GREAT NEWS!! World renowned fashion designers Easton Pearson are lending me their PROTOTYPE TIARAS!! I am going to look fab!!
