My name's Deb, how lovely to meet you! I'm so glad you stopped by...
In November 2008 I made my first sock monkey (yep, that's him alright)....and as they say...the rest is history...
In February 2009, Sock It To Me! was born and my life used to consist of Teza by day (Good afternoon, you're speaking to Chaos Control & Crayon Girl, how may i help?) and monkey business by night.
It was very exciting but I left my home and reality for a crazy journey of enlightenment around Asia. So, here I am soaking up the sights and sounds of sunny Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and working for CLEO, the coolest mag ever. Thanks again for stopping by, sit back, relax and Happy Reading!
xoxo Miss Deb

Be gone all you obstacles!
So, why has the blog river run dry despite the fact that my iBaby is up and running?
Hit by a nasty cold - check The kind that makes you feel like someone emptied your brains out and refilled it with cotton wool. Ugh! It was the worse timing ever because I was almost through my exercise 'threshold'! It's frustrating but I guess I know I've almost done it once, so when I try again I'll be just that little bit closer.
Popped my hip out of place - check Before you freak out, please know that I am on the mend now. I've been to the chiropractor twice and I've got one last appointment on Friday. Now, if you move your attention to the diagram above...my S1 was the bit that popped out of place. It's the attaching bit to your hip and the bit of your spine that's closest to your behind when your sitting. I still don't know how I did it but I just happen to notice a hard bump on my lower back and it hurt when I tried to squish it away like you would a knot or pinched nerve. I found out what was really poking out when I was at the doctors and he reckons it was caused gradually by bad sitting posture...so our couch is the culprit...yeah yea yeah, and me for sitting there for long periods of time. My spine has been snapped and cracked back into place now and I even had some sort of electric pulses and a special physio ultrasound thingy done to me to help the torn tissue heal faster. Ah, chiropractic care, you've done it again!
Dang it, when it rains it sorta pours though doesn't it. I was just telling the boychum the other day that I was feeling a whole lot better about our new life here...then I get hit by one uphill climb after another. Good news is, once all the uphill bits are over, what's left? The view from the top and the easy fun ride down! So bye bye tough stuff and hello good times!

Yes...the term is to be taken literally...take one funky pair of socks, add a dash of "Sock It To Me!" magic by Miss Deb and Voila! Sock monkey awesome-ness!
