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.
