thankyou so much to you lovelies who have already ordered a copy of my zine -- they will be sent out tomorrow ♥ i've been tearing paper and making covers all morning and it's exciting to see my writing take the form of a little book. especially after reading so many other people's zines in my time of running the zine distro.

i've been up since 7am, which is actually my favourite way to start a sunday morning. i thought a cool change was coming in this morning and i was going to sit outside and make more christmas cards, but it's gotten rather hot after all. i'm thinking i'd love to watch moulin rouge {and watch for all the places i went to when i was in paris} and catch up on some letters because i'm drowning in responses and i feel bad for taking so long. today is a package day, i think. pictures from magazines and handwritten letters on lined pages & coloured stationery and mixtapes and cds and of course, zines. yes, i think that's what i'll do. i'm catching up, i promise !

last night kristy & i saw bridget jones: the edge of reason and i fell in love with mark darcy {!!}; he reminded me so much of R, being so stoic and unemotive yet underneath, loving and ohsogorgeous. we were going to go for a midnight swim after the movie but the cool change seemed to be coming in, and it was just that little bit too cold to do so; especially when the beach is unlit and the water looks dark and unfriendly. next time we'll go to the beach first; but this time we drove to the service station and brought icecream, then sat in the car by the sand and talked for ages. simple pleasures at their best. she's going to europe in january for 6 weeks and i'll miss her immensely. not to mention being extremely jealous {but one day i'll go back; i know it}.

more of those why you rock posts will be coming soon. i won't forget or neglect anyone, it just might take a while ♥ also, that girl who had her mother killed's journal is now up to 2000+ comments, and i remember seeing it when there was only 28. crazy things. heavenly creatures for the 21st century.

it's funny that this is such a huge thing. i mean, all sorts of people have livejournals, is it really that surprising that, eventually, it turns out that one of the millions of users is guilty of murder? further, i'd wager that there are far more livejournal users who have commited or been convicted of murder, rape, or other horrible crimes, that we just don't hear about.

my point is, it's funny that everyone is reacting so strongly to this. obviously, people react this strongly to every murder, but there's this tone of "oh my god, a livejournal user!" to it. it's almost as though we think of livejournal as our own small town, in a way. even though it's bigger than the population of nsw.

i love getting up early, when i'm not forced to. lately i've been more and more miserable at night and more and more happy when the sun is out. i used to be the exact opposite though! i like feeling like i've squeezed as much as i can out of my life. :)
