Watch me now, HEY!

As the time is slipping away, and my grades do much the same I'd like to take a moment just to catch this little blog here up. (cue "Catch me Up" by Gomez)

Firstly. Yesterday was a rather big day. I took a trip back to Gtown to visit my parents, and also haunted my favourite shops in the main street.
The Op-shop: This hit-and-miss wonder is full of Baptist women who drink tea, chat and exclaim how nice everything you've picked up is (even if it's a horrendous 80's outfit). I grabbed a couple of vests (one will be turned into a better vest for my Puck costume), and said horrendous 80's dress - though the lady behind the counter insisted it would look lovely over some leggings.
The Second hand book store: Oh yeah! I'm slowly clearing them out of plays. I managed to swindle:
The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood
Frankenstein by Mary Shelly
Three Irish plays
Two Brecht plays
Pygmalion - George Bernard Shaw
A book of Victorian Poets.

and finally The Shoe Shop: This is where all my money goes. I refuse to buy shoes out of Gtown. It's an amazing shop... which is closing down. But the closing down sales were amazing. I picked up a pair of Sarah Cole boots that went from $230 down to $30... WOW. :D

As if the shopping wasn't enough (not that I spent more than $50 on all that stuff!), last night was also the night Ross Noble came to town. Only my favourite comedian ever. 4th Row seats made my night, and I took my brother along for the ride! It was actually the best gig I've seen Ross do. Amazingly clever and funny. I waited around after the show at the stage door to finally try and meet him. But alas. He did not come out.

And I had a carton of Kinder Surprise Eggs for him and everything. :( Still <3 him though.

Also, I've rediscovered two of my past loves. Doctor Who. and... Masterchef.
But more on that later.

  1. wheeeeee! snapsies with the grade slippage. it's the education mill, their minds have been dulled by textbooks to the point that they can no longer recognise our wit-brimming genius.

    opshop & secondhand love.


  2. ZOMFGTMA! The extra TMA stands for TOO MANY ACRONYMS! You saw Ross! With Scottie-O! Extreme jealousy underscores this comment. Sounds like you're having fun wenchie! Love the boot-wa's.
