Eva: Maturity is over-rated

Mmmmm, doughnuts...

Greetings from Australia, my lovelies. How are we all on this most glorious of days? (Well, it's a really gorgeous day here anyway. I can't speak for where any of you are.)

Mum bought us eighty dollars worth of alcohol last night. It's almost like being at dad's. Almost.

I have mango. Do you have mango?

Oh! THERE IS A COMIC STORE HERE NOW! Where was that in my teen years?? And they have an awesome Ash action figure and I WANT IT! No, need it. They also have comics of 'Army of Darkness and Xena' and 'Army of Darkness and Obama' OH YES THERE IS.

I got to see Lewi at the airport and it was awesome! And then on the 30th I get he AND Lara and then Tim will pick me up. Social!

omg, Neil Gaiman just posted Tim Minchin on his journal. THAT MAN KNOWS EVERYONE AWESOME.
FS: This girl's a silhouette

August =

He's a really short post to cover a lot of stuff: Australia was freaking amazing and I already miss being in Nimbin and seeing my parents, all three of whom rule with an iron fist of pure awesome and love.

Lara was here for the last four days and it was FANTASTIC and Alison and I very nearly didn't let her go home to her darling Lewi at all. SHE'S OURS, HOR! OURS!

The first night of the 48 Hour Party (the only night I attended) was good fun and I ate all of the vodka jellies.

Tuesday there is a teaparty and I will be the Cupcake Queen.

Dearest flist of flistyness:

I’m back.

That is all.



Okay, so maybe I’ll write a little more than that then. I’d write a day by day thing here but…I can’t remember day by day cause I’m lazy and I didn’t write it down. But it was fun anyway ^_^

Got off the plane in Melbourne -already bouncingbouncingbouncing- and looked around for Raen (for the uneducated: phfa). Panicked for a short moment with the ‘omgwhereisshe??’ walked around and who should I see lurking around the corner? (Who’s this shady looking character?) it was a Raen! And there was glomping and much concussion. (Dear lord, my spellcheck doesn’t recognise ‘glomping’! Awful!) Raen spent the whole trip back from the airport going ‘oooh, where are koalas? Ooooh, different trees! Ooooo your dirt is funny coloured!’ (No. It’s not orange, Raen. It’s dirt-coloured.)

Then we crashed at our hostel. About 10 minutes later Nikki (persephone_20) shows up and attacks us. In a nice way.

During our time there was much shopping and spending of money and buying and omgtodiefor corset. Mmmmm *hugs corset* it’s honestly the sexiest thing ever. I don’t have the bust for the thing -unlike Raen and Nikki who both looked all kinds of gorgeous- but I still adore it. I also bought a skirt and there were sooooo many pretty things in that shop! Bad Circe.

And then Raen and I went to stay with bottleofred who is lovely and even gave up his bed for the two annoyingly loud tourists. And I think I caught my most awful cold from his housemates but it’s aaaall good. *sniffs* I’m getting over it!

Hmmm, what else happened, precious? Oh! I got to meet saffronlie and her non-LJ friend (those people really exist apparently!) We shopped and such. Which is always fun. Got to meet lots of new people on this trip really. Gotta remember to count all of Nikki’s friends too, who were all great. Not that I’m surprised by this. I even got to hang out at a party with them and do the random snogging thing.

By the time I had to leave I was rather addicted to trams and trains though. Public transport rocks my socks. I’m such a geek. And now, because I’m lazy, the list of things that also were very cool:

# the food court off Little Collins St. Best. Pizza. Evah. I’m so very easily pleased.

# Ordering Stabucks as ‘Des[demona] and Ophelia’ and answering doubters with a sheepish ‘our parents were Shakespeare geeks’
# Drinking martinis on an empty stomach and cold and flu tablets at a lesbian bar.

# Singing really bad karaoke when sick and laced in a corset- because how can one hold back from karaoke when one finds a Smashing Pumpkins song as an option?

# Finding a nice factory clothing outlet and buying way too much.

# Watching movies than lead to week long discussions that go ‘omgyay Medieval!D/L!’

# Staying up all night and watching Buffy with someone who doesn’t usually watch it but enjoyed it anyway.

# Buying new music.

# Watching lions at Melbourne Zoo and buying a purple snake toy you didn’t really need and naming it with obscure references. *pats Acamar*

# Sitting in a park in St Kilda with shapes and cream cheese and just lounging on the grass and then zooming about.

# Lying in a queen size bed and pretending to be two completely different people.

# Giving Raen her first mango ever and watching her utterly devour it.

# pancakes with strawberries and lots of syrup

# real life snuggles

Today I took Nikki for a loooong walk around town and got all sunburnt but, meh, it was a nice walk still. next time I will remember sunscreen.

Aaaaand I think I'm off to bed now. Night all.

ETA: Why did no one tell me my layout was all pixally on computers that aren't mine? *fiddles*

Grrr!

Fuck you, Australia. I hate you so much right now. Thank the goddess I'll be a New Zealander soon enough. I'm embarrassed to be Australian.

I hope John Howard chokes on his own vomit and dies.

Yes. I am dramatic. I am the youth of the nation and I'm pissed off.
