meander, keep moving, that's what it's all about isn't it?! not the hokey pokey, that just CAN'T be what it's all about...

I found an internet cafe that can help me burn a CD, god that was a feat.

Hello from Canberra, our Nations Capital. Place of lots of Possums and funny buses.

I haven't done much exploring yet to be honest, but bEC and Ian took me out for Pizza last night to this great place, and that's about it so far... looked at a bunch of photos from their trip overseas, of which I am horrendously jealous.

Melbourne was fun. Played some basketball for the first time in years... sore arms. owww.

Saturday I am off to Sydney.... in time for the Sydney Peace Day Festival on Sunday! hooray!

This is the end of the rambling, for now...

so the day has arrived...

no not the moving day, the Freedom Festival!!

I think we're all happy it's here and everything's pretty sorted out for the big night. I look forward to playing babysitter/chauffer for the next 24 hours or so.

Tomorrow I will have to re-pack some stuff, and try not to overload the back of my car, and gear up for the Rhino Room Tracksuit party.


And now, just for Philo's pleasure, things I HATE: I hate coming home from the pub knowing I nearly spent $60 and I'm not pissed. What is happening to me? Do I have an iron stomach? Where does all that alcohol go? I mean, granted we had just been to Yin Chow for a pig-out but I mean really! *hmph*

so, still packing away at 10:56am on Friday... I have to be out of here tomorrow! They'll be no procrastinating today (apart from this blog entry of course).

Saw the new extendo version of Donnie Darko last night, that was pretty sweet. It made more sense to me I suppose this time... Time Travel? Do you think the movie could have been about time travel? (this part of the entry is simply for Ben + Sam who joined me for the mooFie, and overheard other people who had little to no idea of the concept, and said something completely retardo when leaving the theatre - and no, it wasn't "time travel?" that was me being fesitious!)

I have just loaded up the boot with things to take to the Goodwill Store. There's no going back now, it's all gotta go really. There is stuff that is still very useful but it's just not worth a whole bunch of money, and I feel better giving it away anyway... hopefully someone will find some joy in some of it. I've put some games and books in there too.

What I'm going to do with the rest of the videos around here I have no idea!

Threw out another 'garbage bag' sized bag of clothes into the clothes bin yesterday... I have a feeling there will be more to go.

Ok, no more screwing around. I got to get this place spik n span!

jane, get me off this crazy thing...

well well well a lot has been happening and i haven't been much of a blogger lately, but here goes the schpeel...

i finished working at the house of pies* yesterday and spent til nearly midnight drinking it out with the few lovlies that thought they could deal with rockin' out on a Wednesday.... starting with some bevs, potato chips and me playing a SHIT game of pool at the Grace Emily (i'll miss that place) we wandered across town to the Exeter where I managed to catch a few kids I hadn't seen yet... well in the last month anyway... so that was cool.

Today I've gotten up reasonably early (is 10am early?) and unpacked one whole side of my wardrobe, getting rid of again MORE clothes!
Man I'm like a clothes hoard or something. I have this feeling I am also going to have to unpack and re-pack everything AGAIN because I don't think it's all going to fit in the car...

Another question, do I try and take my top 10 vinyls and leave the rest here? i mean it's a bloody travesty having to leave MUSIC behind, but I've managed to separate about half of my CD collection to leave behind (not get rid of, but put at the folksies place).

Had such a lovely night last night. I like people playing boardgames on my loungeroom floor and drinking Sangria with me!! There is a lot of cleaning up to be done, but eh, I can deal with that.

Kind of fuzzy cos I haven't really slept properly... maybe it's cos I moved my bed, maybe it's because my brain is full of a million little ideas...

Some people are so handsome *sigh*

24 days and counting...

that's kind of interesting indeed.... time is slowly ticking away.

i have this rash on my neck that is not that noticable to the naked eye, but i notice it because there are little bumps everywhere. I don't know what it is... and I guess if it's still there when I go to the doctor next Monday, she'll be able to tell me!

Had another Amnesty planning meeting last night. I seriously think this show is going to KICK! I hope some of y'all reading that are in Adelaide will be able to make it!!

I just scoffed down a packet of Red Rock Deli chips. God I love those chips! But I'm still hungry.

My friends in Brisneyland are taking me out for Indian Food when I get there because it will be my biFday. *waves to DiP + Erin* You guys rock! I hope we can go bowling too!!

I love bowling. I have been twice recently, and I love it!!

Ella + Dave went back to Melby this week. I will miss them, but I will also see them soon! And I also hope I can convince them to move to Brisneyland as well. It'll be a pilgrimage.

I've discovered my road trip will be over 2600km's... which is a long way, but I'm pretty sure I can deal with it!! I will have company for at least part of the way anyway, which is nice.

Got to get back to it, if I ever want to get home that is!
