This all makes me homesick. I'm hardly ever homesick when I travel, only a few times when I lived in Ireland in fact and never when I'm here with family. It's odd and different. But I'm glad everyone back home is as safe as they can be and the fact that no one has died is the most amazing and wonderful news I've ever heard.
On a less flat note, however, I have been having a good time here, especially the other night when we had the cocktail party and Alison and I whipped up a serious storm of drinks from everyone. It was the day we'd found out about what was happening back home so we found a drink called Earthquakes to make. They were so good and way better than the real thing. I was the Queen of Drinkings and all bowed before me. As they should.
To half a glass of ice in a blender add:
1 measure tequila, god of all boozes
1/2 measure of grenadine
a couple dashes of bitters
Blend like a mofo and then enjoy the delicious.
aka Joy in A Glass
Ice in blender again and then throw in:
1 measure white rum
1/2 measure lime juice
3/4 measure sugar syrup
OM NOM LORD ALMIGHTY NOM
For the non-drinkers we discovered-
200mls pineapple juice
2 dashes lemon juice
IT IS SO GOOD.
You may have sensed a strawberry theme. So many pink drinks. I felt like fanon Draco.
Holy crap, how excited am I to find out that sleazy sexist, racist, all-other-ists Abbott will not be the Australian Prime Minister? THANK GOD. Finally something right there!
This is my last night in Nimbin. Tomorrow I have an early bus up to the Gold Coast and will be staying with mum until the 12th and then it's finally back home! (While I'm in Brisbane though? There's a Valentino retrospective. I WILL BE BEHOLDING VALENTINO GOWNS AND MY LIFE IS MORE COMPLETE FOR IT.) Dad also bought me a book on Alexander McQueen and I am happily basking in fashion. It's lovely.
Everyone talk to me! Leave me comments of adoration/hate! I feel so out of the loop with all my internet/Christchurch people. Basically, if you're reading this post, I ♥ you.
