(no subject)

 Got my hands on the second episode of Doctor Who, am 15 minutes in.

OMFG.  Time to take a breather.  

I need to get through this so I can go back and look at theories for s6.

Edit: The Silence wears suits.  Reminds me of Anonymous.  They're less scary now.  (Edit: Apparently the suits are based on Men in Black.  Awesome.)

Edit: Yay! Pirates!

When I was younger, they reran old (old old) Who on ABC and I never watched it because it was too terrifying.  Daleks are even scarier in black and white.  Actually, everything is scarier in black and white.  I feel so proud of myself for being able to sit through an episode alone now.

Back in Town

My laptop still doesn't get along with the internet very well, but at least it's a hundred times easier to use than the iPhone. So I'm back online, and back into my old habit of internet addiction.

I finally got back home at one o'clock today. Of course it's bloody freezing - worse than Melbourne - and strangely exactly as it was when I left it, which makes me wonder if it really has been two months.

OH guess what? The first song that came up on iTunes (to be able to play music loudly in my room! hooray!) upon my return was There's No Cure Like Travel. Am I meant to feel refreshed? Inspired? Ready to return and face the new world with open arms? I don't know. I just sighed a sigh and got to unpacking (i.e. taking everything out of the suitcase and putting it on the floor)

And now I have to go back to work and find a new job and learn to drive and then in a few months I have to go to university and study what everyone tells me is the most boring subject in the world for five years to earn a degree I don't really want and then oh God I have to get a real job and enter the workforce and work and work and work until I die, unless I'm lucky enough to retire and become an old and wrinkly crazy cat lady spinster.

It is nice to be back; I know I had to come back to pay off the big ass debt that funded half this thing. I know I have to knuckle down to business eventually and I can't run away from time and responsibility. In my last week in Vienna I tacked on 5 more nights in Melbourne because I didn't want to go home. But even they came to an end, and here I am, back in my lounge room, just as it was nine weeks ago, feeling like the whole thing was just a dream.

My personal Nick Jonas verdict, in a nutshell

He's just too young. His voice wasn't up to singing ECAET, and he's obviously quieter than the rest of the cast. Not to mention he looks odd amongst the other students. There were parts, though, when I really liked his Marius. Mostly on the barricade, before Gavroche's death. There was a flash of the Marius with the powderkeg, ready to get himself killed. Mind you, I ended up sitting in the first row of the upper circle, which isn't a great place to judge someone's acting. I think he's going in the right direction, but he needs a couple more years of vocal development and life experience. Then, he could be great. But now, not so much.

 So technically I turned 18 yesterday.  Therefore, I am not in much of a state to write a long entry.  But I'm just letting you know I'm an adult now, and can drink and vote and buy Fight Club and all that.  

Oh, and fml I can't believe our dollar has fallen so low, even against the freaking EURO.

Let's play a love game

All this time I thought that the lyrics to Lady Gaga's Love Game were 'Don't think too much, just thrust that dick', when it's actually 'bust that kick'.  Which is awkward.   I mean, what does 'bust that kick' even mean?

Back to Reality

 "Can I please have a beef curry with rice?"
"Sure, what size?"
"Medium.  Or large.  It doesn't matter."
"I'll get you a large.  Which beef curry did you want?"
"That one."
"Sir, that's lamb and potato."
 "That's okay too."
"Okay, and would you like coriander?"
"I don't mind."

Some customers make my job so easy :D

Copa is over... and all I can think about is how much I'd like to do it every night, for the rest of my life.  But it's back to work for now, I'm going to tell the boss that when I get back from Europe I'm getting a new job.  Not sure how or where, given that I'd have to give that one up too when I start uni next year.  In the meantime, I have an 18th birthday to plan.  Thinking of working that night, going out for breakfast the next morning (you're all invited) and then hitting the town some other time during the week.

42 days... not that anyone's counting

That would be 42 days until I turn 18.  Still trying to formulate a plan because, even though I want to go out and have a good time, I've already been promised more than enough drinks.  I'm not keen on getting vomit-drunk, and besides I have to work the next day (afternoon).  

Anyway, to more pressing matters:  Copa preview performance is next Wednesday! We open on the Friday.  You WILL buy tickets.  Well, if you live here you will.  If you don't, you don't have to.  We are majorly behind as far as costumes go.  I am going to go get mine fitted today.  Still wondering whether I should fork out $100 for my own pair of chorus shoes instead of waiting until whenever for them to get some for us.  Also waiting to find out just how much I need to spend on getting underwear, stockings and makeup for this... still deciding on whether to get my eye lashes done, almost certain I will need a fake tan.  Any suggestions?
