Yes, my little sister is 18 today. How terrifying is that?
In any case, I shall be seeing her in a few weeks, when she comes down to Melbourne so we can see Placebo (and afterwards she wants me to take her to some clubs, since it will be all new and exciting for her...)
ETA: Via SMS, I am informed she got a digital camera from the Parentals.
And on another topic, This year's Bulwer-Lytton Contest results are out.
There's lots of funny stuff here, but my two personal favourites:
The official runner up: "I know what you're thinking, punk," hissed Wordy Harry to his new editor, "you're thinking, 'Did he use six superfluous adjectives or only five?' - and to tell the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement; but being as this is English, the most powerful language in the world, whose subtle nuances will blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel loquacious?' - well do you, punk?"
And just one of the random entries: "Twas brillig, and the toves were not just slithy, they were stinking drunk."
