Epic vagueness

In all the "YAY I DON'T HAVE TO WRITE A BLOG POST!!!"-ness that inevitably follows NaBloPoMo, I slacked off a little bit more than I meant to. WHOOPS. I haven't forgotten about you all, I promise. It's just that I'm sliiiiiiiiiightly braindead, and in dire need of not having an alarm go off in my ear at 6.20am.

There's not really all that much of interest going on at the moment. But I shall bullet point it all nonetheless:
  • I finish my internship tomorrow, and will be flying back to Melbourne tomorrow night. I have not yet packed on account of it takes effort and I'm lazy. I suspect it will end with me jamming everything into my suitcase five minutes before I have to leave for the airport. WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
  • I made my triple chocolate brownies last night. Turns out, they go FABULOUSLY with Connoisseur Raspberry and White Chocolate ice cream:
OM NOM NOM NOM NOM.
  • This morning, I ate breakfast with my hair up in a towel turban. This is not at all unusual, but this morning, the twins were awake. And apparently they'd never seen someone with their hair up in a towel turban before, because their facial expressions were priceless. Clapton gave me the stink eye and a face that screamed "What the fuck is on your head, lady? Are you aware that you look like a COMPLETE idiot??", while Bowie's eyes got reeeeeeeeeeeally big and she stared at me for five minutes with a face that yelled "DUDE. THERE IS A THING ON YOUR HEAD. IT'S EATING YOUR BRAINS. SERIOUSLY. IT'S TERRIFYING. YOU SHOULD GO AND LOOK IN THE MIRROR. OMFG." It was kind of hilarious. 
(To clarify, Clapton and Bowie are NOT their real names. I just couldn't cope with the addition of two more Little Miss [Initial] nicknames!)

  • I saw a truck this morning with a Montana licence plate. IN CANBERRA. I am still confused about this, twelve hours later.
  • I just saw an ad for a Broncos vs Raiders game on TV, and my first thought was "It's December. Doesn't rugby season end like a week after football season?!?!?!". And then I realised it was the DENVER Broncos vs the OAKLAND Raiders, not the Brisbane Broncos vs the Canberra Raiders like my brain told me it was. 
  • I have done precisely zero Christmas shopping. Whoops?
  • I apologise for the fact that I haven't been replying to comments, or commenting on all your blogs. I *have* been reading them. I've just been reading them on my phone on the bus, and by the time I'm on my laptop, I'm back to being vague again. 
YAY, VAGUENESS!! 

How are you guys? Hopefully less vague than me??

  1. You're done with the internship already?? Wow, that went fast (for me - I don't know how you feel about it).

    I can imagine that the icecream was an awesome addition to the brownies... which are awesome on their own. Double awesome.

    1. It went fast for me too!

      And the ice cream/brownies combo was PHENOMENAL.

  2. Have you tried the salted caramel ice-cream? It is all kinds of amazing and it is probably a good thing it comes in such a small tub or I would just keep eating it forever.

    There is nothing wrong with packing five minutes before you leave for the airport. You could follow the example of one of my friends who only started packing for a ten day cruise an hour before we were due to board the ship.

    1. I HAVE - we tried all four of them! Although the tub that we got was somewhat lacking in caramel, which was sad.

      And seriously - if it came in a tub any bigger, I'd probably bear a strong resemblance to a beached whale.

  3. I've been the worst commenter because I've been using the ipad and commenting from the ipad SUCKS. (JD confiscated the laptop for his "business"... whatever that means.) So, I hear ya on the no comments/comment replies nonsense.

    Also?

    I am constantly shocked to see foreign license plates, particularly on cheap or cheap-ish cars. I mean, for the amount of money expended to ship that vehicle overseas and across national borders, surely it would have been cheaper to rent? Or possibly to buy a new car, in the event that your relocation is permanent?

    1. On account of how Australia has no land borders, I'm pretty sure that it's actually illegal to drive cars with anything other than an Australian licence plate here. (I haven't actually checked that. I may just be making shit up...)

  4. It's been over a year and I'm still not okay with my alarm going off at 5:00am for work. To say I'm in dire need of it not going off regularly at that time is an understatement.

    Also, raspberry white chocolate ice cream sounds absurdly delicious.

    1. It really is phenomenal ice cream. And I don't think I would EVER be okay with my alarm going off at 5am! 6.20am was bad enough...

  5. See, that's what happens when your teams steal our names. *snort* (Though, I still find the Australian hockey team to be the best mockery of an American team name. The MIGHTY ROOS? Bahahaha.)

    But what the hell, Montana. Driving through the Pacific must've been fun~.

  6. Congrats on finishing the internship today, yaaaaayyy!

    (Hey, that rhymed.) (...ahem.)

    And OMG, don't apologise re. comments, hush! I mean, I miss them only insofar as they're always awesome and kickass, not from a vanity perspective a la "I want comments on my blog!" (ew), and as far as past posts go, I really only want your thoughts on the Europe post, if and when you get a chance post-braindeadedness. Bwah!

    Those triple choc brownies look gooooood!

    The twins are adorable, hahah. I've been doing towel turbans since I was a kid.

    The Montana licence plate is freaking ME out, too. What the Dickens?!

    I must confess, I have something of a soft spot for the NFL. I know, right?! I blame the brilliant "Friday Night Lights"... (OMG, you have to watch it!)

    1. Thank you!! And I think I'm now caught up with commenting on your blog??

      I have no idea what the hell was going on with the Montana licence plate. Like, WHYYYYYYY????

    1. They were pretty amazing, even if I do say so myself!

  8. Can you make me those brownies during your hot second layover in LA?

    Probably not. I guess we'll just have to go to In-N-Out and get milkshakes instead.

    1. I doubt it. But if you're REALLY lucky, I might be able to make them in Arizona and post you some before I fly out!!

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