*cuddles* Well it's very good you got this done or I would have had nothing to read and rescue me fromw ork.

And yay for #19 these are all set to happen y/y? (and didn't take much work organising right - it's easy to get a book published or film a screenplay, because the world recognises hard work right?...If I were saying this my pitch would be so high only dogs could hear me and they would learn to speak human, just to tell me to shut up).

#18 - What the hell, could this ever NOT be a bad idea? Who thought that question up!

FYI - I vote Letitica Evenstar, even though I would get mixed up and call you eveningstar and think of Michael Morning-Star from Ben10 and be secretly a little worried you were eating people's energy and turning them into zombies.
Oh, I'm sort of envious of your lazytiems in NZ. Doing everything at your own pace sounds absolutely lovely.

#11 this makes me eager to take up knitting again. I used to do a lot of it when I was younger, but somehow I've given up on it and don't know if I even remember how to hold the needles now.

#18 When it comes to mind reading, I've always dreamed of living inside the head of people who drive me nuts, at work and elsewhere. Loved ones? Not so much. Scared!

#19 It's all going to happen. And if it's not the Oscars, how about a consolation prize. I mean, what's wrong with globes, lions, palms and bears? Just lower your expectations a little bit and everything will be fine ;)
Is it bad that my favourite of these is #17? ;)


*runs to waste time with this as well*
*makes plans to steal your life* Sexy squatter for the win!


14. Possession. ... vfdsjoziov *goes to find it* Ack, all the poetry is so good and it's all so heartbreaking and dark and I love Christabel and her choices even though I hate her and her choices and the last bit. Will I ever stop crying over this?

19. What happens in July?
And you will rock the red carpet- but what about the hair? Tres important!
Sexy Squatter *wants one*
I started knitting again a year ago, mainly to keep my hands occupied when watching TV, keeping them away from the chocolate and crisps. I have a laptop now so knitting is not necessary anymore.
I do want to knit again, but getting the right wool is difficult here, not many shops; I might have to order it online.
Concertina? NICE! Hahaha, that's the best answer ever.

Also, TimTams. Always welcome.

And it's warm on the other side o the Tasman today, too, but as soon as the sun started going down, it got a fair bit colder. I MISS SYDNEY. IT WAS WARM IN SYDNEY.
