Wendesday night we went and saw Peter Jackson's King Kong. It was quite good. Probably a bit longer than strictly necessary but it was a good bit of entertainment. The giant bugs freaked me out. I hate bugs!! We seem to have an infestation of cockroaches at the moment. I hate cockroaches!!
Thursday we went to my Uncle's place for a BBQ. It was just my Uncle and his girlfriend, and my Mum and Trent & I. We sat out in the backyard chatting and eating. It was nice and relaxed. Then towards the end of the afternoon suddenly a big swarm of bees came into the back yard and started buzzing around. There were hundreds of them! It freaked me out! I swear the bugs are out to get me!
When we got home, I think Trent was going a bit stir-crazy. Too much time hanging about the house and too much time with our relos all the time! So he suddenly decided at about 8:30 that we should go out. So we jumped on the tram and went into the city. We walked along Soutgate and the Crown Casino area. We had some supper at Automatic and then wandered back. It was quite nice. Trent took some photos of buskers and the big gas flame jet thingies. As we were walking back there were Fire Engines and an ambulance parked in front of the restaurants. A few of the restaurants had been evacuated and one of them had the roof sprinklers on which were dripping all over the restaurant. There didn't seem to be any actual fire though.
This morning I woke about 5am with another one of these goddamn stomach spasm thingies. I think maybe all the rich Christmas food and stuff is making things worse. Also the fact that we've been either grazing all day or having a late lunch - so that I'm not hungry for dinner until 9 or 10pm. I don't think my body can digest the food properly when I eat that late. I don't know. I think I'm grasping at straws now. Once I get back to work and back to a sensible eating and sleeping routine I'll see how I go. If it keeps happening then, I'll have to go to my GP. Grrrr Today we went to Trent's mum's for a lunch get-together thing. More relos!! Lots of Trent's mum's friends were there too. Trent and I were the only people under the age of 55!! Eeek! It was sooo hot today and I was really tired. I was glad to leave the old-person lunch. Tee hee.
Tonight we've mostly been vegging out. My friend rang who has just got back from Christmas in England and travelling in Egypt before that. I think I will try to go to bed early. And since it is now 10pm I will NOT eat anything else (even though of course I am hungry now) And anyone else who is Melbourne tonight will know it's going to be a bad night for sleeping. Since it was about 38 degrees today and will be 42 tomorrow!! That's supposed to be the meaning of life not the bloody temperature!! Phew! Anyway, think I'll curl up in bed with the Pythons autobiography and see if I can get SOME sleep in this crazy heat!
Mood - Is HOT a mood?
Music - Tripod - Shandy too far
"I went a shandy too far, I woke up in the bed of some - one - who - I never thought I'd do..." What happened to Tripod? They used to be good!
It IS way too hot to sleep. You might actually be able to finish The Pythons in one sitting! I have a feeling I'll be up all night, and then sleep all day in front of the air conditioner. It was not nice to be told today that the temperature would be ten degrees less than it actually was! Tomorrow is going to be lovely Might have to revert back to the old gas crisis days and take a cold shower. Enjoy your night, if you can!
re:the python book-oh wasn't john cleese SUCH a cute cute CUTE little boy?-even cuter than michael palin-who is my favourite.John looks to be the perfect angelic child-haha-little did his parents know!!!:) .
Hi guys. Didn't even manage to start the Python book last night. I was so tired I just collapsed. Trent managed to get our portable air conditioner going in the bedroom. Is not as good as a proper installed air conditioner but makes things a bit more bearable. I didn't sleep well. But I did sleep. Yeah what DID happen to Tripod? I guess they sold out. hahahaha. I used to rather like them back in the day. Can't be fussed with them much these days though
