behold a great big BLOGGING DAY

today i've blogged about anything i can think of, plus ammended some i did yesterday. And I've also added the posts i was meaning to put up over easter.

So huzzah to me!

That just leaves this question, which has risen upon returning from a toilet break...

what kind of person grins evilly at you when you enter the restroom??

I checked the seat for signs of cling wrap or glue or something, convinced the evil grin was an allusion to an early april fools attack on me.

newsflash: my hair is very nice today.

They Weren't There
Missy Higgins

You breathed infinity into my world
and time was lost up in a cloud and in a whirl.
We dug a hole in the cool grey earth and lay there for the night.
Then you said, "wait for me we'll fly the wind,
we'll grow old and you'll be stronger without him" but oh,
now my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found,
but I was alive and now I've drowned.
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
so they can tell me I was wrong...

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare of
any bindings from the world outside that room.
And they weren't taken by the hand
and led through fields of naked land
where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...
so I couldn't say "no".

You sighed and I was lost in you, weeks could've past for all I knew.
You were there blanket of the over-world and so I couldn't say,
I wouldn't say "no". But they all said, "you're too young to even know,
just don't let it grow and you'll be stronger without him"
but oh, now, my world is at your feet. I was lost and I was found,
but I was alive and now I've drowned.
So now I will be waiting for the world to hear my song
so they can tell me I was wrong...

But they weren't there beneath your stare,
and they weren't stripped 'till they were bare
of any bindings from the world outside that room.
And they weren't taken by the hand and led through fields
of naked land where any pre-conceived ideas were blown away...

I love this song, except she puts an R after 'ideas', she should just keep her lovely accent.

Her gig fucking rocked.

bear with me, just a post acting as an outlet for random prose

theres an image in my head i just cant shake.
its of you taking the stand i thought you'd taken years ago.
how does it feel to have all eyes on you?
how harsh is that spotlight burning down?
I know that i'd shrivel and die under that light.
If it were me I dont know what I'd do.

i guess the hard part is the waiting.
yeah, waiting is the worse thing one can do.
wait to hear yes, wait to hear no.
people would tell you not to think about it
but i guess that's a really stupid thing to say.

sometimes I wonder, what if i picked up my guitar
and just started playing?
would the tune just flow from me?
and make the world better?
I feel like I have the soul of an artist
but no skill to match.

these colours, these notes, these scenes.
this paint doesnt mix well.

Let's call today: 'Tuesday, 29 March 2005'

pirategirl wrote in the notebook:
hello blogfans! did you miss me? sorry ive been offline for ages. our servers down... for ever it seems.

oh yay.
    most recent news: i just dropped one subject from uni because in short, it sucks.
    kinda recent news: Missy Higgins was on Saturday night and she rocked! Carly got her own private broadcast of it thanks to the whole 5c a min calling thing we have. yay!
    old news: sinus infections suck... and so do stupid ISP's.

So much to blog about, so little time. The most important thing to mention is that Kirsty and my monstrosity of a series has entered proper pre-production stage, and on friday we actually shot some scenes. I edited most of them together last nite - they rock. My favorite is the spaghetti western and the music clip, mostly because of the snippets of dialogue i threw in. Ok, no more information for you! I also threw together a cool title image using a still screenshot from footage of us slacking off on a bench in port adelaide with our funky* glasses on.

The good news about today is that I saw helen when i came in to the library, but she didnt see me (yes it is the second part of that sentence thats the good part, not the first).

Oh by the way, anyone wanting something to do on April 7th, go see Lior at Flinders Uni. He opened for Missy Higgins on Saturday, and he was awesome. A beautiful boy with a beautiful voice. Another guy called George Burn (yes i laughed too) did a few songs too, and while he was good, there's something about mumbling intro's and 'umming' alot that tells me his stage-presence needs some work. Lior just strutted on, took up his guitar and did his thang.

And ok, I may've been sitting a bit far from the stage, but he looked beautiful to me.

Meh, everyone knows i have a thing for the boys with dark curly locks. He sang a Jewish Prayer a capella in Hebrew. It gave me goosebumps. If i had the money on me, i'd have bought his album. (ammendment 30/5/2005: i found it at the library huzzah! so now i can borrow it and listen to it over and over and over).

what else for this massive updatey post?

Hey, cos i dropped this class I have Tuesdays and Thursdays off!
Maybe I'll ask work if they need people then.

I'm seriously getting poor. Kirsty and I went and checked out a camcorder package, and there was only one thing about it that made me not want it, and as the footage in the car shows in our conversation later, i really really wanted it. But on the bright side, it saved me some money. 1200 in fact.

*circus music here*

last saturday, kirsty eliza and I went to the Hutt Street After Race Party.
We were clowns and we rocked. Not like balloon animal Ronald McDonald clowns, like Marcel Marceau, Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin kind of clowns.

Kirsty was a sleepy clown in Pyjamas with a teddy, Clancy.
Eliza wore an stylish outfit with silver coat-tails and a red cummerbunt.
I wore a white shirt with rolled up sleeves and a black waistcoat and a black beret. Oh and rainbow suspenders dangling at my sides.
We all had white faces and different black features.

Eliza looked very clockwork orange, viddy well O droogs?

other than the guys getting really drunk by the end of the night and a few trying to hug, snog or dry-hump us at various stages through-out the evening, I had fun.

one guy tried to take out my kazoo to kiss me. I pushed him away with both hands on his shoulders. He flew quite a distance. His drunken surprise told me that he hadnt thought that this girl-clown was a bit stronger than he had first thought.

pirategirl wrote in the notebook:
today i was on my bus going to uni, when we pulled out of Flinders and there is SMELLY PAT!!!* I almost died!

I ducked my head and had to remind myself that i was on a bus and that she hadnt seen me, not only that, but we were pulling away and that her stench wouldnt reach me. Nevertheless, i felt dirtied by the sight.

Changing buses on Currie Street I WALK RIGHT PAST ZOE!!!* I fiddled with my CD walkman and she completely missed me.

Waiting for my next bus, I SEE LIZZY ON A BUS GOING PAST ME!!!** I blended into the crowd (for a change) and she didnt see me either.

Still waiting for my bus, over the sweet sound of Missy Higgins seeping from my earphones I hear another sound, but I cant quite pick what it is for where its coming from. I figure that its from the cafe behind me.

I get on the bus and sit down one row from the back, a hippy guy with a bright purple scarf around his forehead climbs in and sits in the middle of the back row.

A little way down the road i hear the odd circusey music again, i turn off my music to hear a harmonica.... INSIDE THE BUS! The hippy man has taken a seat and is serenading us with song.

Actually he's quite good, and i take off my headphones to hear him more clearly. He plays Greensleeves, Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport, and lots of others which I dont know the name of but am equally impressed by. Then all of a sudden a horrible, almost satanic voice erupts forth..


I freeze, the sound gives me the shivers.

The hippy speaks again, "Reeeeeepeeeeeeent! Reeeeepeeeeent!" He rasps.

A firetruck whirls by.


I am grateful when he goes back to playing. Its endlessly amusing to watch people pretend he didnt even there.

"Reeeeeepeeeennnnnnt!" He advises us again.

If he would only shut up and play, I wouldnt mind him at all.
This guy really got into the 60s, and the drugs therein.

*for those who don't know Pat and Zoe,... well zoe is alright, she just gives a freaky vibe sometimes, but Pat.... she has a stench that could strip paint. Katie calls her Stale Vag Lady.

**Lizzy was a girl from school who shared our space in the locker room, nice enough girl... she just took things a little too seriously... including when we told her that, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN I TAKE THINGS TOO SERIOUSLY???"

some startling new information in the wind.

this pirate's about to chop away at limbs with her cutlass.

it's funny what you learn about your own family when someone new is on the scene.

Kind of on that note, by the way carly, that was Bec you saw in the library. She said that they were asking for more ID, and that if she needed to, she was just going to use you. She called out "what? but carly knows who i am!" but you were quote 'in your own little world doing things'. mehehe.

I still didnt blog about last weekend and the curse that was on me for about 3 or 4 days, let's just say it included 3 different invitations on Saturday night, going to none of them, locking keys in my car, immense backpain, arriving late and working past 9pm sunday, the car breaking down shortly after, missing dave's performance, an accident involving the bus i was riding, lost wallets, leaking drinkbottles, a date with a boy that secured my homosexual side, and all sorts of crap.

while i was singing some War of The Worlds, my mother was telling me how she said to someone "it's so nice to have my daughter back. she's so happy now that she's started uni again."

then i sang some more and she told me to shut up and turned the volume of the TV set up!

i found it so hilarious i had to share it.
