My neck is burned. Stupid summer sun. Go away, dnw.

Spent a lot of money with [livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken on Saturday. For the record, we found the store we were looking for! After much trying on and admiring of clothing, and the ensuing indecision, we finally worked out what we were going to buy, bought it, and moseyed to Essendon for Bec's street party.

Yesterday I went to the Belgian Beer Garden for drinks with old acquaintances from uni. Jem was there, so I had somebody to cling to. I decided to walk home via Albert Park Lake, and stopped along the way at my favourite cafe for refuelling. :D


♥ This band, you guys.

Tired, sore and mildly dehydrated kitty is tired, sore and mildly headachey.

On the bright side, academically-proactive kitty went and talked to a potential supervisor today. In true professorial form, the academic in question was lost without her PA, and mentally rescheduled our meeting from the agreed-upon time of 3pm to 3:30, which meant that I did a lot of waiting around and some mild cursing, and consequently have an extra half-hour of work to catch up on in my own time. Never mind, it was worth the wait - the projects on offer sound wonderful, and are fully funded. The team is multidisciplinary, the lab is small, and the professor is lovely, and seems focussed on ensuring the academic success of any pupils she takes under her wing.

Looking forward to the weekend, hells yeah. Surprisingingly, I'm still looking forward to Sunday. *checks own temperature and frowns slightly*

Today's entry brought to you by [livejournal.com profile] ockyflam.

Why I have a good opinion of Robert Pattinson, even though I don't think he's good looking. For serious. You should click on the link. Do eeeet. It'll make you laugh, or at least snort derisively in Stephanie Meyer's direction every time somebody mentions Twilight in your vicinity. :D

So, what's new, f-list? Looking forward to the weekend? I know I am.

Fail!kitty forgot to bring her USB key today. The one which contained the data essential for a meeting with honours supervisor to discuss article, which was scheduled for today. *facepalm* We've moved it to Monday. I AM NOT ALLOWED TO BE A FAILBOT ON MONDAY, GUYS. PLEASE PROD ME IF YOU SUSPECT I NEED HELP TO ACHIEVE THIS: YOU ARE PROBABLY CORRECT.

HAI THAR LJ.

IF MY SUMMER GETS ANY MORE AWESOME, I'M GOING TO EXPLODE.

I JUST BOUGHT TICKETS FOR [livejournal.com profile] heffiethedragon [livejournal.com profile] dzurlady [livejournal.com profile] therathasspoken AND ME TO GO SEE MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE IN SYDNEY, THE NIGHT BEFORE SOUNDWAVE.

[livejournal.com profile] heffiethedragon LAST NIGHT INFORMED ME THAT RISE AGAINST HAVE ANNOUNCED A SEPARATE SHOW IN JANUARY AT THE HIFI. HOLY COW.

YOU GUYS, BRB - EXPLODING WITH GLEE.

Pete Wentz, how so adorable?
J-14: A lot of your lyrics are very deep and personal -- what is it like to hear Patrick Stump singing the words you wrote?
Pete: They make more sense to me. It's like I find the anthropological site and then he's the one who identifies the dinosaur -- he puts the pieces together. It's more therapeutic to me to watch somebody else do that and sing them. He also has the voice of a cute little angel.

In non-bandom news, [livejournal.com profile] gabyvarius was a star of the show last night, looking sumptuous in [livejournal.com profile] de_chel's corset. Damn, but she looked hot. Well done, sweetie - it was a fun night, and thanks for driving me home!

Camp starts tonight. Part of me is rejoicing, and part of me wants to crawl away and sleep.

Ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. So.

I have my morning coffee perched faithfully beside me (I bypassed Mark-the-Belgian-coffee-maker this morning, in favour of catching the next train so I could get to work on time so I could secure tickets. I FORSOOK MORNING COFFEE FOR MCR, YOU GUYS. MY LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDS.), so I am now set to face the day. Also, I may now go into hiding from the Society For The Protection Of Capslock Keys. Aha, sorry f-list.

Wow, I'm bored stupid. Friday afternoons are so sleepy around here that they verge on comatose.

*chokes and splutters*

It's shaping up to be a quiet weekend. Claire and I plan to engage in the fine sport of couch sitting and marathon movie watching this evening; I'm staying the night because her parents are out of town, and we can stay up late unhindered by any demands but our own sleep requirements. And, I suppose, the bunny. He's a very quiet bunny, mostly.

I have no specific plans for either Saturday night, or Sunday. I may or may not show up at the bookstall, depending on how enthusiastic I am about dealing with crappy public transport on the day. I shall therefore potter. Items on my 'pottering' list include:

Music practice,
create CDs,
academia organisation,
graphics manipulation,
laundry,
letter writing,
organising my diary,
sleeping,
going to the market with dad,
drinking coffee on Sunday at my favourite cafe,
and avoiding trouble as best I can.


How does all that sound?
