Dear Jane

1. Dear Jane,
How, as an eco-warrior, do I justify coveting a Karmann Ghia?

Peace out,

Dear Plum (if that’s your real name and I don’t think it is),
If you truly care about the environment you don’t covet any kind of vehicle. You smugly ride a bike down the centre lane, probably with a solar powered camera on your helmet and the wind gently caressing your crystals.

Although ‘Plum’, you could pretend it was gifted to you from a recently departed great uncle. (Not that I condone that AT ALL. Also, get a white one.)

2. Dear Jane,
I start each week with the best intentions for meal planning and prep but invariably end up with so much food left over that I feel bad throwing it out. Any suggestions would be awesome!

Lots of love,

Dear Marc,
You sound like a lovely man. But you have obviously missed the entire point of me.

Any meal suggestions WOULD be awesome! Meals, in fact, would be even better.

I have nothing to offer here. We have no common ground soooo, yes, go you.

3. Dear Jane,
What’s the deal with shared showers in hot yoga studios?


Dear Anon,
I hope you’re not a pervert, going all anon on me but I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt.

Shared showers in hot studios keep people moving along at a quicker pace. There’s something about excusing yourself to slither past naked strangers (or not! Which is worse in my humble opinion!) that makes you want to lather up and get out asap. Whereas in other studios you’ll often find students think individual stalls equate to hotel living; taking their sweet time to relax, pop a hair mask on and shave their bits thus creating quite an atmosphere of non-zen.

Pros and cons for both, I’d say. If you’re lucky enough to have a private stall, hurry the hell up and if you’re sharing, don’t touch anyone, lock eyes or bend over. Just like prison.

Any other suggestions or advice is welcome here. If I agree with it.
And if I can help you, dear reader, please email me –

    Dearest Jane! Why oh why did you not tell Marc that instead of feeling bad throwing out food he should simply cook it all up into meals on a Sunday and deliver them to you?! 馃槀

      I just struggled with Marc even asking me such a ridiculous question! But yes, it’s the least he could do really…. Good one, Kelly! Take note, everyone! 馃槈 xx
