- That is not dead which can eternal lie

Snowpocalypse! But the dinosaurs survived it!

This year has been all about Nature (it deserves the capital letter at this point) going crazy on Christchurch so I suppose we shouldn't have been surprised when we got more snow than we've in the six years since I moved her. (Snow in Christchurch is pretty rare. Every winter the mountains all around us are always dusted in it, but I've only gotten snow twice before down in the front yard and all that jazz.

Anyway, the snow of late July cleared up but now it's started again and the weather officials are having meteorological orgasms over much snow we're going to get. Already it's much thicker on our porch than last time and it's pressed up against the door. Excitement!

Lara, who should be jaded to snow since she comes from freaking Montana has twice been the first one outside dancing around in it while Alison and I decide to enjoy it from the warmth of the living room.

Last night The LFoD celebrated our three-way birthday party since we're all pretty close together for those. It was magically dinosaur themed and people even got nametags of awesome named yet somehow real dinosaurs, like Camelotia, Megacervixosaurus, Piratosaurus, Irritator, Mojoceratops, Pantydraco, Ultrasaurus, Smilodon, Minotaurasaurus, Kittysaurus, Technosaurus, and Discosaurus. All glorious, all the time!

Lucky for those not living in the house the party was being held in, the snow did not start in the wee hours of the night and thus trap everyone at the flat where they would be forced to sit around watching sci-fi. Like any of them would complain. I spent more time talking about Star Trek last night than anything else and I managed to score someone's media for myself. (Star Trek TOS and Enterprise - SHUT UP, I LIKE IT- Game of Thrones, Caprica, and the final season of BSG as we don't yet have it on DVD. WATCH ALL OF THE THINGS.)

My jelly castle last night was the best thing you've ever seen and never tasted. You'll just have to believe me if you weren't there. Vodka jelly castle is officially the thing I will now supply for social gatherings.

Checked outside. Yep. Still snowing.

Lost in the blinding whiteness of the tundraaaa

I love reading housematehorror. It makes me realise that despite any problems we have in our household, living in the LFoD is, in actual fact, bliss. Because we don't live with any of those people. Thank the gods on high for that piece of mercy. (Although, maybe the flatmates might disagree and I could see someone on there very soon who is rather vividly like me... Hmmmm. I prepare to live in fear of this day.)

The first night of the 48 was excellent, even though it was raining. Tonight is going to be colder and wetter and windier, and it's been snowing/sleeting all day. Coooold. Drank quite a bit though I remained little more than tipsy, and there was quite a bit of glorious snogging going on. Ah, drunken boys and their amusingness. Who can resist such temptations?

Tonight it has been promised that there will be Boosh music. Oh hells yes. We're getting The Tundra Rap, because it's fitting to the current weather. The weather in which I find it a challenge to feel my fingers properly.
-- Pyramid Head boogie

I believe this is fully deserving of my dancing Pyramid Head icon.


How very happy making! It didn't last all that long but it was falling heavy for a while there. Guess this means winter has really arrived.

Also, Tim hit me in the side of the face with an iceball (because he believes snow balls are for pussies) and now I can't hear out of my right ear >_< Whoo hoo, watery grave!

yeah baby!

Haven't checked my friendslist yet, but I'm fairly willing to be every entry from Christchurch reads something like this:



I bet it's more snowy over Spreydon way. Was last year. At some point I have plans to run about in the snow with my angel wings on. Possibly in the graveyard ^_^

"She promised and said, 'you will always be safe here with me.'"

Alright it went like this:

At 4ish in the morning Tim went to go home. But then he came back inside and told me that maybe- just maybe- I’d want to go see something outside. And I beheld snow. And it was good.

There was much walking around in the snow and squeeing on my part. Because, hello, snow! I’m in love with the stuff and I’ve finally moved to a place where in can have it! This is the third time ever that I’ve seen snow. (The first time being last time I was in Christchurch two years ago, and the other being in Wales.) So I made a Plan for the next day. (Yes, with a capital ‘P’ even) At first light we would take cameras and go down to the cemetery to get photos. And thus we did. And it was good.

The second part of the Plan was to go out to the big cemetery past Eastgate and so Tim, Sena, and I jumped and Orbiter to go out there. We get out to the mall and decide breakfast of Subway is required but- since it’s still only seven am- the mall isn’t open. We make dramatic ‘noooooooo’ sounds and decide to jump on an Orbiter home because it’s getting ball-busting cold by this point. Probably a good thing we got on the bus we did at the time we did because the snow was making the roads dodgy. They called the buses off not long after. And being stranded at Eastgate? That would have been The Suck of Doom.

So instead we came home and we in the warm. Enjoying the snow from inside with a cup of tea is very nice.

Then- when I woke up from my middle of the day sleeping- I hopped a bus out to Riccarton to visit the dictator and was saddened to find it snowed less out there and my favourite park still had much green grass. (But then unsaddened cause I got to spend time with Frank. And this is, of course, a totally fair trade.)

Beyond awesome day. (Even if I can't feel my fingers.)
