Though this probably counts.

Was up at half eight this morning, even though I'm officially on easter break. Had to meet a friend to get a book on weeds. Oh, this life of mine, it is a wonder of excitement. After some faffing about, I've just done something constructive and put on two loads of washing. See above re: my life and excitement.

Today I also have to:
Buy credit for my phone. And how.
Buy a cardigan or shawl or something to go with my graduation dress which I've finally decided on wearing to the wedding in Italy next week. Also, shoes.
Get money out of bank account, even though I'm not supposed to 'til Saturday.
Do a fucking shitload of work that I've been putting off since easter break started.
See L'Enfant with my friend Kate.
Figure out what I'm going to do on my birthday.

Speaking of, le Bloke has something planned for Thursday night. And won't shut the hell up about it. He says I'll like it, but it won't fit in a box, and I have to be 'ready' for it. And he's taking Friday off so we can do actual things on my real actual birthday. Again, I know not what. Answers on a postcard, please.

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open it to page 161.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"In an empty space between two houses, two men were discussing the sale of a pig."

I'm reading this book at the moment, and I had to skip ahead to get to page 161. Woes.

A millionty points to anyone who gets this. Any other sentence on the page would have given it away, methinks.

As I was, as previously mentioned, on STUPID DIAL-UP at home, here's a quick summary of the whats and whens of my trip home -

Things I did -

1. Ice skating (So much fun)
2. MiniChristmas! (Cooking Christmas dinner for 11 people!)
3. Lots and lots of shopping (Some of it for other people, even)
4. Visited many different kinds of family (Where it snowed!)
5. Ate. Then ate again. Then ate some more. Followed up by some eating. (I'm hungry)
6. Went to the Leinster v. Munster match (GO ON THE LEINSTER!)
7. Had a fun NYE with the likes of [livejournal.com profile] jaaam and [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone (Absinthe - say no more)
8. Ate some more. (Still hungry)
9. Geeked out in a serious way with [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone (More on that later)
10. Also hung out with such luminaries as [livejournal.com profile] the_deb, [livejournal.com profile] lil_nibbler and [livejournal.com profile] siriaeve (YAYS!)
11. Played Trivial Pursuit (And didn't lose) (But didn't win either)
12. Played fast and loose with my punctuation in this post (!;!)

Things I saw -

1. Kong (Large and in charge, but a wee bit flabby round the middle)
2. The African Queen (Which I hadn't seen in years, so it counts as new)
3. Mysterious Skin (ouch)
4. Boa vs. Python (I wish that was a joke)
5. Brokeback Mountain (Broke my heart; [livejournal.com profile] lil_nibbler is still crying, I'm pretty sure)
6. Season 2 of Peep Show (The awkward would melt your face right off)
7. Where the Heart Is (Baby David Hewlett)
8. Copious hours of SGAquarium (most often with [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone)

Things I gotsed

1. The Naming of Names by Anna Pavord (Best. Book. EVAR.)
2. Paradise Lost, with introductions by Phillip Pullman (Mmm, gratuitous in the best way)
3. Clothes! (A lot of which Im wearing right now, I notice)
4. Blender (Now I can make soup!)
5. Hair dryer and straightener (And look pretty!)
6. MONEY! (Donations always welcome)
7. Perfume (Do I smell or something?)

So all in all a pretty productive break, methinks. Now if only I'd done ANY of the work I'd had planned...

I didn't have any classes today so I thought I'd do something productive and sort out my bank stuff. I have two (count em'! Two!) bank accounts. For reasons of interest and such that I just about understand. I have to wait two weeks to get my cards though, and only once I've gotten those am I allowed to apply for a credit card. Maybe that's a good thing...

I also went shopping and treated myself. I got some yummy goat's cheese, and spent about an hour in a second hand book and record shop. I only bought two books though, so I think I did pretty well. I got Hyperion's Fall by Dan Simmons, which is a sequel that I've been looking for forbloodyever as I loved the first one. I also got the gay cowboy book by Annie Proulx! Yay! Gay cowboys! And yes, I know there are other stories in there too, but seriously, gay cowboys.

Somehow I got guilted into running my class's palynology seminar nest week, so I have a crapload of work to do. Which I should be doing now. Or later. Gay cowboys or pollen? Gay cowboys or pollen...


When you see this on your flist, quote Firefly.

You're afraid we're going to run out of air.
That we'll die gasping.
But we won't. That's not going to happen.

We'll freeze to death first.

This so much reminds me of a book I found in a second-hand shop last year - A Catholic Youth's Guide to Adolescence or something.

Go, read, piss yourself laughing.
