Had a big day out with my mum today after convincing her for weeks to come to the Belgian Beer Garden to catch Dr. Detroit with me on a Sunday arvo :)
She decided to make a day of it!

Went to the city and caught up with my uncle for some French crepes. Then got him to drop us off at DFO, cos it's a bitch of a walk lol

Got a whole lot of stuff I don't need... a hoodie, a cute-as navy jumpsuit with lovehearts, new undies (Superman, Donald & Daisy, Bam-Bam!) and then something I did need! A backpack/trolley case thing from Kathmandu >> this. It's pretty cool! Got a smaller daypack as well for my parents to take to Vietnam.
Also got some really comfy walking MJs from Wolverine (or something), they fit me better than mum but she'll take them for her holiday anyway.

A lot of money was spent :/

Then, 3 trams later, got to the Beer Garden and listened to some good music. Mum was more interested in people-judging though, I think - heh.

The short story?

The long story.Collapse )

Will put up a proper itinerary once I sort the rest out (the roundabout on the west coast of the States is irking me. Why does Forks need to be there. Sigh. And why do I have to be a Twihard?)

A 60+ year old guy came in today and asked one of our staff members where the "wetshields" were. My workmate had no idea and did the clever thing and walked along the aisle and said "Our razors are here, our shampoo, our soaps..." and he goes "Oh, there they are!" and picks up... condoms.

If he had asked me where "wetshields" were I would have, A) gone to another staff and asked them or B) asked him "What do you use them for?"


We think the guy made up the term himself.

Watched 5 seasons of Daria in the last 3 weeks. And the movie. She's pretty cool.


Caught the Dan Banks Band at Veludo on Thursday night. Always good!


Had a family lunch today for my birthday next week! It was really nice seeing everyone again, even though only for a short while. And getting presents, that's always good hah. I was going to stay for dinner too but already made plans to catch up with Andrew in the city. Had a few cocktails at a backpackers bar and Bertha Brown and then watched him draw some comics.

Nice end to the weekend, but it's Monday again tomorrow *sadface*!


Looking forward to an epic week in general! Hopefully work cake on Wednesday and dinner with workmates. Maybe a movie on Thursday. Vaudeville Smashing boys on Friday (in Mentone, WTF) and partypartyparty on Friday night for my birthday bash! (I really hope it won't be sucky this year...)

I had a dream a few nights ago where my boss asked me to go get stuff from downstairs but from a different era. I was on a moving train (no doubt influenced by reading Water For Elephants - awesome btw) and had to jump off and run forwards or backwards depending on if I was going to the past or future then I'd jump onto the carriage to get the things. Anyway that was pretty boring as dreams go! But I woke up.

It was about 3am and I hardly ever wake up in the middle of the night, dream or otherwise! That weirded me out firstly but then I got up and I was scared. I felt really freaked out. I went to the toilet and then raced back to bed and my heart was thudding so hard and then I heard I'd left the tap running! By the time I turned it off and leapt back into bed I was panting. WTF.

Anyways, told the pharmo at work the next day and she's said I probably was sleeping on my left side and got up too fast which affected my heart rate.

How logical.

This question never fails to confuse me:

Where do you come from?

A rep asked me that today, I stutter, as I always do "Uhhhmm, you mean... Heathmont...?"
"Oh! I'm going to HK soon and was wondering..."
"Oh, I'm from Vietnam, I mean, I was born here, but my paren..."

Then later a friend asks me "so where does he come from?"
"Cool. "

Then later another friend asks "so where's he from?"
"No, I mean where is he from?"
"Greece, I guess?"

*existentially confused*
