appalling_cynicism: (A splash of colour on a rainy day)
This beautiful, curl-up-with-a-book, overcast weather is not helping me with my resolution to actually attend my Monday lecture this arv. All I want to do is stay in my nice warm bed and keep reading The Hobbit. Well, I'm nearly finished with The Hobbit, so probably The Lord of the Rings. Yes, the movies did inspire me to go back to the books. Oh well, I've still got an hour to psych myself into it. It could happen.

I think a pot of tea may be required, and either Vegemite toast or some of chocolate-peanut paste biccies I made the other night.

Decisions, decisions.
2nd-Mar-2009 01:07 am - State elections suck
appalling_cynicism: (Guns and cigarettes)
New theme to go with a new season. Well, officially it is autumn, but I haven't seen any proof yet. True, Brisbane is not great for seasons, they pretty much just meld together into hot season and less hot season, but it was over 30C today. That is hot. Also, sticky.

Uni starts again tomorrow. This makes me sad. While I am glad that I am not job searching at the moment, I don't really want to be studying either. This is my fifth year. I have been doing the exact same things every semester for four years. I don't want to do them any more.

Also, I don't want to have to vote in the upcoming election. Both the major parties suck. Hard. Seriously. I don't want either of them in power. Labor keeps fucking up and LNP is just plain inept. None of these people are fit to run the state! I am very frustrated by this, I want someone to produce a bit of policy so I can make a proper choice. I am leaning towards Labor at this point not because of any policy, but because they tend to be the slightly more socially liberal party and I am nothing if not socially liberal. At the moment, it is just vicious attacks like 'don't vote for the other party because they eat babies' and ridiculous, fluffy "vote winners" like 'choose your own state motto!'. This is not good politicking, it is just irritating. Give me a reason to vote for you, rather than a reason not to vote for the other party.

I don't want to wait for my shows to come back. I want to fangirl them now. Also, I want more MattMo.
21st-Feb-2009 12:13 am - I am back from Vanuatu!
appalling_cynicism: (Never outgrow jumping in puddles)
I love the rain. I love the way it smells. I love the way it sounds. I love the way it makes me feel, like maybe things can just be washed clean. Also, I never outgrew squishing mud between my toes.

Vanuatu was amazing, though it may have reminded me how completely socially inadequate I am. Meeting new people when my sister is around never ends well. I know how horrible this sounds, but these were people who should have liked me better. They were interested in politics and Britcoms and didn't know every song in the Top 40. I am, however, so ridiculously awkward that my bubbly but vapid younger sibling attracts all the affection. Yes, I am jealous. My sister is perfectly lovely, she just makes me feel, well, hopeless. The bright side is that the snorkelling was mind blowingly good. I got to see a moray eel, the one type of eel that doesn't creep me out.

I think Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice should crossover more often, I really truly do. Mmmm, twice the Kate Walsh.

appalling_cynicism: (Do I exist?)
Also, it seems worth recording that is was 45C today. That is unpleasant.
