Utena: With Sword

Rainbow colours shouldn't be difficult to spot in the middle of the day

So, today I got hit by a car.

Okay, I'm exaggerating. Today I was swiped by a car because apparently you don't actually need to stop for pedestrians at a pedestrian crossing. Arsehole.

My knee is turning some interesting colours, though.

On a more cheerful note, I seem to have an unexpectedly full social life this weekend.

I mean, today was Silly Night for FOUL - which was rather amusing and, as the name implies, silly.

Then, I ducked out early to go see Melbourne Model: The Musical. Some backstory for people who don't go to Melbourne Uni: The Melbourne Model is a reworking of the course structure at the Uni which has been incredibly controversial with a number of people, especially Creative Arts students. As a result, some have said Creative Arts students decided to protest it's implementation by... writing a musical.

It wasn't actually bad, though it was incredibly un-PC and exeptionally scathing of Glyn Davis and co. Very, very funny though, if in some parts down to the "I can't believe they just said that" factor. I especially liked Sam's Asia number, though the dude playing Glyn was hilarious.

And that was just tonight. Tomorrow I'm somehow trying to work out a way to both attend frabjously's 21st, and catch up with Mum when she is in town for The Sister's birthday (which was today).

And I shall leave you all with an amusing quote from Silly Night:

A girl I don't know (to me): "Excuse me, can I feel your skirt?"
(After feeling my skirt)
"It's just, it feels just like I imagined. Kind of felty. Like Scotland!"
