So yesterday the repair man came. I got a call late in the morning saying he'd be here around lunch time, which was way more prompt than I was expecting, so I scrambled myself into the bathroom to get presentable. Still steaming about the edges from the hot water, I dressed with more haste than speed, taking little notice of what I was actually throwing on.

Just then there was a knock on the door. I rushed out to answer it, but it was only my mother. As she zoomed by without a glance on her way to visit the much looked forward to smallest-room-in-the-house, I caught the words floating back to me that she needed me to take care of her taxi fare 'cos she'd had to make a stop on her way and had run out of ready cash. I quite happily snatched up my purse and trotted out to the waiting taxi.

What I didn't realise in all this was that in my rush to get dressed, the shirt I had selected (a stretchy bit of fake velvet) had, as I yanked the garment down to my hips, snagged itself on a protruding bit of lace attached to my bra and had not properly sprung back into position. In short, I was exposed.

And thus it was that as I leant down into the taxi cab to hand the driver my card I witnessed something I've never seen before. A 50+ grown man revert in the space of three seconds to a sputtering, blushing 12 year old school boy.



I wonder if he thought I was trying to get out of paying the fare?


P.S. Any of yon Melbournites wanna come see PotC with me? Or Spiderman 3? I wanna go to the mooooovies!

Mmmm, Scotch. I bought a bottle last night on impulse while I was out doing the week's shopping. First alcoholic drink that has touched my lips in months. Of course, I drank too much. Consequently I slept for only god knows how long, but strangely woke up feeling amazingly refreshed.

Shall have to spend most of Monday (and maybe Tuesday, depending on various scheduling things) waiting for repairmen for the TV and washing machine. The one is making no sound and the other is leaking. Bleh. I hate waiting around. Maybe I'll use the time to finish off my artses for Clam :) On that front, "talk show host" is shaping up nicely, as is "the voices", "guru" needs a bit of work. That darned angel card is still giving me problems though. Can't quite nail the concept. On the other hand it's provided me with enough raw material to flesh out about 3 or 4 different paintings, so I can't complain too bitterly, lol.

Right, off to paint for a bit before taking a disco nap so I'll be awake when repair guy gets here.

Waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! There's nothing on TV but Big Brother and football all night! Why, oh WHY do they have to put the two longest, most boring, and most thorough examples of human STUPIDITY on the same night simultaneously?!!!

I can feel my brain melting.

In other news, since I feel it's absolutely necessary that everyone have an equal chance to behold my awesomeness, I'm putting a link to my first two cards for Clam's card game up here. Behold!

Next up will probably be Guardian Angel or Obnoxious Talk Show Host :D

I've been contacted by Con, a guy who was a member of Elysium's Shadow for all of five minutes. He wants a female singer for the new stuff he's working on and thought of me first. Flattering I suppose. Anyway, he called me today and we're going to meet up (along with our old drummer Daniel) and see what happens. It's a very different feeling from when I was first meeting the other erstwhile members of Elysium's Shadow. I suppose 'cos everyone was a stranger back then and I had no idea what to expect. Now I have no expectations, just going along to jam.

I suppose this means I should start practising again? Lol.

It'd be interesting to see what a guitarist would make of the tunes I've been writing lately. All piano stuff, with a little string accompaniment (may I say I really hate the strings settings on this keyboard. So tinny sounding), and not very metal at all.

Anyhow, have a mate coming over tonight, so I suppose I should tidy up a bit. Later!

Today I went with my brother and scarlettarcher to see a screening of season 4 of Red vs Blue. If you don't know what that is, it's machinima. If you don't know what that is, go here

If after going there you think I'm mad, you're probably right.

Before the screening (which was I don't know how many hours of laughing my backside off in one of the most uncomfortable theatre seats ever) Gus Sorola , one of the show's creators, did a little interview for our benefit as well as kindly taking some questions afterwards. My brother got in a few questions then, none of which I remember except to say that Gus was very patient. After the in-theatre part was over we all headed downstairs to meet the man up close and get Scarlett's DVDs signed. There were hors d'oeuvres and bubbly, the first of which my brother glommed onto while I took care of latter. I didn't really do much more than wave to Gus 'cos Scarlett looked like she was about to drop from hunger and fatigue (naughty Scarlett, take care of yourself), so after she'd got her autographs we hurried on over to the nearest eatery for something more substantial than mini spinach and cheese pastries while my brother stuck around to talk machinima.

All in all, a very fun day. My only regret is that I didn't get to say to Gus "Hey, do you ever wonder why we're here?"

(Watch the show, people. You'll get it then XD )
