September 23rd, 2003

I've realised I need a haircut. URGENTLY. I feel like someone's glued a mop to my head. Oh well, it could be worse. I wish someone had taken photos last year before one debate, when I made this comment about how I'd tried to comb my hair and everyone just laughed at me. It was an explosion then.

Having dialup is a real pain when other people decide they need the phone for some terribly important reason, and mothers running around with cameras is a real pain when they decide to race into your room and take random photos of you early in the morning to use up film. I was seeing spots for a few minutes. What else is a real pain is people who don't e-mail you when they should, and need to e-mail you urgently. Grr on people who can't get their act together (looking right at you, Chantel). And grr on people who say they'll be back soon and, over an hour later, are still not back (I'm looking right in your direction now, Lauren) and, as Murphy's Law states, will get back just a minute after you get offline for half an hour to free up the phone line for others.

I wish people would do what they say they'll do. Most notably, if I get offline so you can make a phone call, don't you think you should make that call and not just lie on the couch being lazy for no particularly good reason?

You know it's hot when you go to turn the fan on and discover it already is, just you couldn't feel it. This is the second day in a row that's happened. It's September: it's not supposed to be this hot! If this is a sign of things to come, summer is going to be AWFUL in big, bold capital letters. Patrick, I sure hope it's cooler down in Melbourne.

--- Quite a while later, because I went off and did stuff ---

In fact, speaking of Melbourne, I need to go finish packing soon, although it's not like that's going to take long. I know pretty much what I'm going to take, all I need to do is toss it into my bag. In relation to CDs I'm going to take, on the recommendation of some comments I got, I'm going to take 'Mad Season' by Matchbox 20 and 'Hybrid Theory' by Linkin Park, and because I like it, I'm also taking my Jimmy Eat World CD. But I can't resist taking some U2: Under A Blood Red Sky and one or two more I'll choose later. Yeah, might be a lot of CDs for just a short holiday, but remember it's a 20+ hour drive each way so I'm going to need some variety. Even Under A Blood Red Sky, my favourite CD, can get a bit boring after a while. And be proud: I'm taking an equal number of U2 and non-U2 CDs, which beats when I went to NZ last Easter, when ALL of my CDs were U2. Sheesh, even I think that was a bit drastic. So maybe my U2 addiction is being broken. I sure need to listen to other music.

This will most likely be my last entry before I leave. So hopefully I'll meet Patrick and Chantel (there might be a problem or two with meeting Pat but hopefully it'll happen, and meeting Chantel is looking less and less likely seeing she hasn't been online for a couple of days). Hope everyone has a great rest-of-the-week, and I'll see you all when I get back. For now, goodbye.

And before I go, a quiz thingamajig.Collapse )
