i hope you're enjoying all this chrissy and new years madness.
i am thinking on ways to rectify it.
..but i see no reason not to post the best ever Simpson's ditty twice.
it's been a long day, but now i am home drinking a pilsner (snowy mountains, a microbrewery in NSW) and listening to an eclectic mix of stuff on my iTunes.
here's to the neighbour's unsecured wireless connection, my new mac, limewire, and good music to make a girl smile.
now sing along kids...
yesterday mich and i went to the NGV (national gallery of victoria)
and saw the most wonderful exhibition of pre-columbian mexican
sculptures. they are just incredible. these brilliant characterful
ceramic creations, in lovely warm colours. i am going to go back and
sketch them some time soon, if evidence doesn't appear please do feel
free to give me a nudge in that direction.
i am having some issues getting my photos onto flickr at the moment,
so i'm not updating nearly as often as i'd like to. also as of
thursday i will be computerless, until i earn enough to buy myself a
laptop. top of the priority list, that is. i'll also have no landline
at my new place (apparently it's a bit of a melbourne thing... not so
good for us homesick foreigners!) so communication will be at an all
time low. eek!
thanks to those of you who've been texting me since i left my number
here, very cool to have that contact!
i'm going to go make dinner now, rice and beans and spice and veges
and stuff. yum.
love to you all
ps. big shout out to vanessa and fidel who got married (as far as i
know...) a couple of days ago! and a big hug to F, the newest member
of my ever-increasing fanbase..
edit: what the fuck is with macs? sheesh.
We are all too much inclined, I think, to walk through life with our eyes closed.There are things around us and right at our feet that we have never seen, because we have never really looked. We should not keep forever on the public road going only where others have gone; we should leave the beaten track occasionally and enter the woods. Every time you do that you will be certain to find something you have never seen before. Of course, it will be a little thing; but do not ignore it. Follow it up, explore all around it; one discovery will lead to another and before you know it you will have something worth thinking about to ocupy your mind, for all really big discoveries are the results of thought.
so says Alexander Graham Bell
i've booked my ticket, blogpeeps. i fly to melbourne very early on april 1st. yes, april fool's day. as someone said to me, maybe that just means i need to embark on this adventure with a sense of humour.
i have a room lined up for two and a half months, starting about 2 weeks after i arrive. it's in brunswick, a suburb which fills me with delight, and i'll be living with two queer girls around the same age as me. so yeah, things are falling into place very pleasingly.
i can't wait to check out ceres environment park, which just happens to be in brunswick also... not to mention all those gorgeous organic vegetarian cafes and secondhand bookshops. next thing is to find a job quicksmart!
5 weeks and counting.
