|10:17 pm - The other plus side is I found another cheap vegetarian place to eat|
So, the two days of window people coming along and me skeddaling have been and gone - and yet, the windows still aren't done. So apparently people will be back again on Saturday to finish things off. And I do hope that means finish, so we can put furniture back as it should be and be able to actual cooking in the kitchen.
Also, it will mean I won't end up shoved out of the house so I am forced to wander around Melbourne, looking at random shops and ending up spending all my moneys. On the plus side, I found a place in Melbourne that had the Hark, A Vagrant! book, so I managed to get that without excessive postage charges.
Any suggestions as to what's on on Saturday so I can kill some time during the day? The comments on my Twitter have not been the most productive - most of yesterday afternoon got occupied when I got on the wrong tram by accident, and ended up spending a few hours at Docklands when I ended up there.
(And no, I don't plan on reading fic on my phone, because that is really not the most comfortable way to go about it. Even if it is a new chapter of Primary Gain.)
Oh, and Dad's having dinner with The Sister and I on Saturday, so I need to think of something to ask him for for Christmas by then. And one of my housemates is leaving for Vietnam on Saturday, too.
So yeah, my life.
Have some videos instead:
- The Periodic Table of Swearing. This is apparently an actual thing in London. ...I so wish I could go and see it.
- The Earth, as seen from the International Space Station. Our world is stranger and prettier than any CGI could ever be.
Current Mood: busy

It depends if you're confined to melbourne city or if you're going out to other places too. You could easily spend a day shopping if you skipped around to places like chapel st/lygon st/chadstone/westfield/melbourne central etc. If it's a nice day, you could just go to the park with a book to read. Or invite people out and have a picnic. Organise an inpromtu fandom/cosplay meet. See if any of them are on on Saturday anyway. See a movie. Walk/rollerblade/cycle along the beach at Port Melbourne / St kilda.
I was actually trying to get to Chapel St when I ended up on the wrong tram. Which sort of borked up that plan.
And no-one seems all that interested in doing anything when I asked. Though I suppose that weekdays meant people were kinda busy - Saturday should be better for that.
Plus I'm not all that interested in the currently screening movies, to my great disappointment.
I may be in the CBD tomorrow afternoon, if you're interested in hanging out or something?
That swearing thing needs to be voiced by Jeremy Clarkson, it would make it so much more awesome.
Also, d'you remember where you picked up Hark! A Vagrant?
And did they have any more copies?
Saturday afternoon? I'm supposed to meet people for dinner at 6.30, but before then you need to just name a time and place.
I got the book from a book store on Brunswick St. Google turned up this store
as having it in stock, which looks like the place I was at.
Sorry it's a bit late, but if you're still interested, how about 2.30 meet at the Flinders St steps? There'll probably be stuff on at Fed Square.
Yes, that is quite doable! I'll be wearing a hat of some description.
And a mini-skirt and my shiny blue tights, because I just bought the tights and want to wear them.
