My ponytail plant is flowering!!!

After seeing Margie and Mark's excellent strawberries, my balcony garden was leaving me with a severe sense of inadequacy. Then I discovered... my pontytail plant is flowering! Yay!! They're not supposed to flower until they're at least 10 years old... my pot plants are so advanced for their age :-P Posted by Picasa

mmm, just stuff

In this crazy tumultuous world we live in, it is great to know that some things are still constant:
- no matter how good a multi-tasker one might be, trying to laugh and drink Smirnoff Double Black simultaneously will result in all sorts of nasty, choking mess
- any gathering involving more than about ten choristers and some alcohol will generally yield Morals Report worthy quotes (eg, "Well, whose getting off first then?" from a suspisciously sober alto :-P )
- going to the Central Market and eating a Zuma's 'Full-on' breakfast at 1pm on a Saturday is an awesome start to the weekend

All my friends are getting married...

Well, not exactly all my friends...
It was my girlfriend Donna's wedding the other weekend. Yay! I did the first reading at the ceremony, and made her cry. Excellent.
The reception afterwards was so much fun. This is my fave pic of the night - Donna (sans husband :-P ) busting some moves on the dance floor. Woo hoo!
I get such a kick out of hearing her refer to Dan as her hubby! Too cute!!

Parisian bakery

So, I just returned home from AUCS coffee and was feeling very hungry, so decided that instead of having a midnight snack I would look through holiday photos to distract myself, when I came across this pic of a gorgeous little Parisian bakery Ben and I bought lunch from one day. Yu-um. I battled through in my dodgy French, then we took our yummy cake-y pastry-y things and ate our lunch by the river. Sitting on the bank of the Seine eating a chocolate eclair... *sigh* Posted by Picasa

Yes, that's me, hugging an ancient Scottish monolith (you can tell it's Scottish from the heather in the background, for those who didn't quite get that one).

No, I can't be expected to go back to living in Adelaide and working 9 - 5 (make that 7.30 - 4.30) after having done things like monolith hugging.

Yeah, feeling very random at the moment... no, I'm not on the "University cigaretttes"... it's a completely drug free state of weirdness...

Get me out of here

Ok, I'm not really sure what's wrong with me, but lately I have been feeling incredibly bored, but seriously overwhelmed by life at the same time.

I think I need to get out of Adelaide. I'm applying for a job in Melbourne. I think Melbourne would be good for me.

Any suggestions about what the hell I should do with my life would be most welcome. Seriously guys, I could use the input.
