G'day mate  

1. Have Australian visitors. This makes me happy, because they like me and find me entertaining, which is an easy way to earn my undying, unswerving adoration. As is fact that one of them has luverly son just a bit older than me. *winks* However, I must needs entertain them, hence little time.

2. Exhibition tomorrow night -- NB straighten mad hair!! -- so also, little time.

3. Saw the Evil Git today. It was odd. He was wearing a suit, and horrible glasses, carrying two huge cases and didn't recognise me. I feel funny now.

4. Someone reviewed the -- Terry fic that I can't, actually, spell the name of -- on FA and DIDN'T HATE IT! Makes me wonder why I turned off comments... oh, I have these fits and urges, don't you know.

Current Mood: busybusy
Current Music: "Sparkle", Ruby Horse

...and I thought that was just me.

Did I miss this or something?

*thunks self on head* Tony! the git! I haven't missed anything! *smugs off smugly*

:) He was a boy I fancied truly, madly and deeply whilst in school; he was also, as the title suggests, a git. Probably he's not interesting enough to be called 'evil', but then, I am Queen of Hyperbole.

Oh, a boy from school whom I fancied, who was a screwed-up nutcase and quite a git to boot. :) I think I've mentioned him three times since I got this journal, so you're not missing much, trust me!

I am so ridiculously tired, and I want to respond to everything you said, but I will wait on that and right now say only this: YOUR REVIEWS! SO GOOD! Of course, as humble beta, I knew your story rocked, but LORD, woman! The girl who said your writing was just like Terry Pratchett's?! Are you dancing in the stratosphere? You should be! Congratulations, my dear - you've really done it this time, I think! <333

*grins* I am pleased people like it, of course! Really, anyone who's read Pterry will know I stole the eyeball thing from Quoth. :) I should probably put a disclaimer in!! I reckon, though, the idea that 'my' Terry and 'everybody else's' Terry are so different will be rearing its head a lot amongst those who do read it. *purses lips* You'd never get that with Draco -- ooh, I imagined HIM so differently in my head! Not.

Oooh, I just hope it uploads properly! Not like Sob Story. *grins*

Well, congrats, congrats!

Now, questions:
How did the show go?

Is it easier to not care about the Evil Git when he looks stupid?

I haven't talked to you for a while. What's up?

The show was terrifically crowded (a lot of people got the sniff that there'd be free wine and food, y'see). Three of my portraits were picked by a sculpture called Sean Kelly; he looked through the whole exhibition (animation, interior design, graphic design, photography, architechtural draughting, art craft and design -- me!) and picked some work for an exhibition he's holding in January! So my teacher is keeping those ones back. I took some photos, too! My graphic design teacher said the external assessor was 'very pleased' with my graphics portfolio. So. All irrelevant, but I didn't do too badly -- my actual results are coming out in August.

No. No, it wasn't, dammit. I sat on the bus on the way home groaning (mentally) and thinking: "It doesn't make a damn bit of difference". Still, there are PLENTY of cute dentists to distract me... *lacivious grin*

Mmm. Australians around; went to the pub last night with them. They're very easy to talk to. :) Also, I've been spending the day writing chapter four and me eyes, they is burning! I've made great friends with a girl at work called Aislinn; she's a Potterhead and doing her masters in Greek and Roman Civilisation and her thesis on 2nd century travel guides, so she knows all kinds of odd stuff! Apparently, Jane Austen wrote porn. 0.0

That's about it! You?
Caitcoralia13 on June 4th, 2005 01:45 pm (UTC)
THAT IS SO COOL! Congratulations! Wow, sounds like you owned that show. Well done my dear! I still need to see the garbage sculpture you were telling us about so long ago.

Yes, yes, think of the dentist. Mmmm.... dentist.

Sounds like lots of fun with the Aussies and their cute accents. I don't think I caught how they are related to you/know you?

Aislinn sounds like someone who would be well worth knowing and a good person to have around when performing tedious tasks such as filing, etc. Also, cool name!

Well, our moving truck got here on... Wednesday? I think? Tuesday, maybe? All the days run together. Anyway, our carport is filled with rows and rows of boxes which we are slowly unpacking. Since I have no idea where my parents want anything to go, my job is flattening the newspaper that we used for packing material so we can recycle it. Speaking of tedious tasks. I lessen the tedium, however, by listening to my iPod and fantasizing about Anakin Skywalker. My new love. Joe, I tell you, is a thing of the past. (We'll see how long that lasts once I get back to school and past my current Star Wars phase.)

That was hanging up when I took the photo, so you yet may!

DentistS. Ahaha.

They are schoolfriends of my fathers; he knew their husbands. They kept close even to this day and my father living thousands of miles away. It's quite sweet to see how silly and excited he gets having them around. :)

It sounds like I'm mispronoucning Aisling, but hey. ;)

Wow. And I thought my job was dull. Still, Hayden may well make up for it. And there may be a lookalike in your new neighbourhood!
Caitcoralia13 on June 5th, 2005 10:05 am (UTC)

There's more than one hot dentist? I might have to go to the dentist more often then, say, whenever my teeth hurt!

That sounds very sweet, and it sounds like you are having a great time with them. Fun, fun!

"Aisling"? Is that a name?

Oh, yes, he does. Oh, GOD, if only! But have you seen Napolean Dynamite? Have you seen what I'm up against?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on June 5th, 2005 12:20 pm (UTC)
Yes! There's Eoin, Timothy, Paul and David. *beams*

It is, yes. Often people would spell it Ashling, which is how you pronounce both. :)

No, but I've seen pictures! Geeky kind of fellows -- is that the local talent? Oh, dear ...
Caitcoralia13 on June 5th, 2005 04:04 pm (UTC)
Whew! That'll keep you busy all summer! And "Eoin"? Is that pronounced like "Ian"?

Ah, kind of like "Ashley," then?

Well, I would like to say that yes, yes that is the local talent. But, in the interest of fairness, I must admit that I have not seen hide nor hair of any boys my age, except one, who was, if anything, less promising. Lord have mercy.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on June 6th, 2005 08:41 am (UTC)
Hee. No, 'Owen'. The real Irish spelling would be 'Eoghan'. Bad, huh? :)

A leetle.

That paragraph just cracked me up! You poor, poor darling.
Caitcoralia13 on June 6th, 2005 08:54 am (UTC)
Gah! Whoa! I love us Americans with our phonetic spelling - we really simplified things! The only one I still have problems with is gray/grey. (And don't even get me started on the punctuation.)

:D It's okay. Come Wednesday, I will have Hayden shower scenes to keep me warm.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on June 6th, 2005 12:31 pm (UTC)
it's grey. you have to arch your mouth all funny to get gr-hay, i find. ah well. gray's a last name, in my book.

Caitcoralia13 on June 6th, 2005 06:02 pm (UTC)
I pronounce it the same regardless of spelling, and my pronounciation, I think, is more like "grey," because, like you said, you don't have to move your mouth as much. Also, my Mom and I have decided that "grey" looks more like the color.

*fights urge to go 'hehehe' in a lecherous sort of way*
Seduce him, go on. It's good practice. You might even enjoy it.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on June 4th, 2005 03:53 am (UTC)
If I had alcohol and he was there, I probably would. That is the sad thing about my life.
bat crimeiceetoile on June 4th, 2005 05:16 am (UTC)
hehehe. Why not? With great amounts of alcohol comes great responsibility to do incredibly stupid things. And you've got the excellent excuse afterwards of 'but I didn't know what I was doing!' which always works. Don't be too hard on yourself, anyway. The point is that even though you would, you haven't. Yet.

3. :O?

4. See, it was dumb turning off those comments. Don't ever do it again, yes?
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on June 4th, 2005 03:50 am (UTC)
1. THEY are DURN crazy. They were telling me all about my dad's old MOTORCYCLE and how he used to smoke POT. Seventies, man.

2. Yes, all dead straight now. :)

3. Okay. *hides*
Insufferable, man.: munchiescynicalpirate on June 3rd, 2005 10:09 am (UTC)
*clutches at you*

That was meant to be the end of my comment incidentally, but I have to know - who is this 'Evil Git'? I am already cultivating a strong dislike for him. It may be the name.
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on June 4th, 2005 03:49 am (UTC)
*submits to random clutching*

Oh, just a blast from the past. I went to school with him and, er, fancied myself in love with him. *facepalm* I have fond memories of our screaming matches in Geography.
