Dearest flist of flistyness:
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,
? 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*
