christmas in august ?!  
i spent part of the afternoon with a group of goths in the botanic gardens in town today; but the most disturbing thing that i saw was this:

christmas ornament display christmas card display

christmas ornament display christmas card display

christmas displays in shops. in AUGUST.
there is something incredibly wrong with that.

on another note, i had a good afternoon. although i hovered, a lot. i'm not as outgoing as i used to be and sometimes i wonder if i'm really the same girl who danced around in theatres and directed plays and got jobs because she was the first one to start talking to strangers in waiting rooms. but i'm not hiding out like i was last year and somehow, it seems to be a happy medium. and shiftybob burnt me Portishead music {thankyouthankyou!} and i think i could listen to it forever; it's like being lulled into a hazy sense of being and what i want to do right now is reread wasteland by candlelight and forget about the real world.

sleep to dream.

Ooo a meet up? In Adelaide? I wish I knew about it! I am a member of that community, but it wasn't on my friends' list, I haven't been following it.

I wanna go next time. How was it? Did you knew anyone before you went? Are they open-minded and stuff?

Next to our Halloween merchandise in the storage loft, is a bay filled with Christmas items. Last year, they had our trees up and decorated before Halloween. I hate to say I loathe Christmas. But I hold no great love for it either.

Haha, I can't believe my eyes. Christmas stuff during August is scary, but at least it's cheaper (my mom always buys Christmas cards in January cause they're 80% off :P).

Christmas already? Damn, better start shopping then... (for myself, of course)

Decemberween, already?
I'm glad you liked the moozik. Not so sure you'll like the other rubbish though. I just chucked on whatever I had on my harddrive at the time. The enormous avi file is the first episode of Firefly, a very funky TV series that unfortunately got cancelled halfway through the first season.
Can't remember what else I dumped on there....

*laughs* only to be a pain ... All the Xmas stuff is already out 'cos if you are shipping things overseas it takes like 3 months and I think the cut-off date is like the middle of September or some shite.
Trust Australia Post to put us all out of whack!
