It's a millionty degrees at the moment (okay, that's a lie. It was 34 today, but it's due to be in the 30s every day this week, and EEEEEUW (America, that's in the mid-90s Fahrenheit)), and as a result, I shall quote Lolcats: I cannot brain today, I has the dumb.

So instead of thinking up a blog post, I figured I'd steal borrow an idea from Liz and do the 'currently' meme/blog post/thing.

Right this second? Some documentary on the History Channel about Australian federation. I haven't really been watching a whole lot of TV since I got to Canberra, mostly because I've been going to bed at 10pm! I did go and see Skyfall last night with LB. I thoroughly enjoyed it - unlike Quantum of Solace, it actually had a plot (gasp)! I'm really looking forward to seeing where they take the Bond series in the future. Also, they showed the trailers for Les Miserables and The Hobbit, and I fangirl flailed in my chair, and wished Gina was there with me so we could squee together.

Listening to:
Mendelssohn's "Wedding March". It's playing on the documentary about federation. Also, crying babies. Babies do NOT like hot weather as it turns out. Interestingly, I've stopped using my iPod since I got to Canberra. I have no idea why. I think it's because the first day of my internship, I was wearing a skirt and didn't have a pocket to shove my iPod in. I'm not really missing it at the moment. Also also, one of the cats meowing in my ear. He snuck up behind me, the little urchin.

My trip to the US in January. What I'm going to get people for Christmas (albeit in an incredibly half arsed way). Meet ups with friends before Christmas. What I'm going to do next weekend. Some baking. I don't know what or when, but it's been far too long since I baked any of my old favourites (namely brownies). My blog posts for the rest of November.

Thinking about:
My uni results. They're released tomorrow morning, and I'm kind of freaking out because for one subject I've only gotten a mark back for ONE assignment, so I have almost no idea how I've done. The email I just got from one of my uni friends in response to an email asking her where I could get a new brain because mine was full. Her reply? "573.86". I laughed far harder than it warranted. Librarians: we're big with the nerdy.

Looking forward to:
JANUARY!!!!!! Lor and Alice and Emmy and Gina and Eileen and Sarah in one month? I think I'm going to explode from the awesome. Seeing my BFF, Sara, in Florida. Les Miserables. The Hobbit. Seeing Pitch Perfect with Deidre. Knowing my results tomorrow. I HATE not knowing things, and am terribly impatient when it comes to things like this. Having ice cream for dessert. Christmas being over so I don't have to listen to the stupid songs any more.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer. A cyborg retelling of Cinderella? YES PLEASE. I'm 26% done according to the Kindle, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I also just finished Patrick Ness' A Monster Calls. It was brilliant. I also have The Great Gatsby waiting in wings (I've never read it), but I've been reading so much YA in recent months that I'm not sure how I'll cope with it!

Making me happy:
The fact that I got a high distinction for my semester long group assignment. It was a LOT of work, and I'm thrilled that we pulled it off. Spending the weekend with friends. The fact that I'm not a total cripple after going to Body Step yesterday. I genuinely thought I would be. Playing with collection items at my internship tomorrow. Good friends, good food, good books, good movies.

How was your weekend?

K xx


  1. I rather liked Cinder although I found the ending a little annoying. One day, I'd like people to write actual books with actual endings, instead of trilogies. It doesn't change the fact that the concept is completely enjoyable, though.

    Good luck tomorrow with your grades - I am sure good news is coming your way.

    1. YES. The ending was SO annoying!!! Stupid bloody trilogies...

      And it was mostly good news. Although there's one grade that I'm cranky about. ONE point off the next grade up. HARRUMPH.

  2. Weekend was pretty chockers, I must say, but I managed to get a fair bit of rest in between, too. You kick ass for getting the HD and I'm sure the rest of your uni results will be awesome too because, DUH, you're super smart! And aaahhh, you're gonna have such a kickass time in the States, can't wait to hear all about it when it happens. In the meantime, we'll catch up, wheee! XOXO

    1. I'm kind of scared about part of my trip, which I'll tell you about when we eventually sort out a time to meet up!! xx

  3. GATSBY! <-- can you tell I am fangirling about the movie?!

    And, it really won't be long until I see you at all!

  4. I cannot respond to most of this because my response would be AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHYYYYYEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    Though I guess I just did that, so... Moving on

    Why do grad school professors give you no indication of your performance. I'm always sweating the end of the semester.

    1. SRSLY. I have a theory that they're all secretly evil and they like to torture people, hence the no feedback until the ABSOLUTE possible last minute. Gah.

  5. GAH January is part of what's getting me through right now. FOR REALS I WANT IT HERE NOW. And Les Miserables... and Gatsby... and Hobbit... you know... EVERYTHING AWESOME. (Which, by the way, it's a good thing Les Mis is coming out in less than a month cause I saw it on stage last week and I think I would DIE if I didn't know the movie was coming soon. I want to see it again and again and again...) Also - I'm SO GLAD you are loving Cinder. It took me a little bit to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down!

    1. JANUARY IS GOING TO BE MADE OF WIN. Unless, of course, I freeze to death in Washington, which is a definite possibility...


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
