10:43 pm - Cue stereotypical phrase in volving the word "curiouser"
Well, yesterday was interesting. I went to frabjously' Unbirthday Picnic - which meant copious amounts of tea, hats and vaguely Victorian outfits. (Yes, it was Alice in Wonderland themed).

Said picnic, incidentally, was held in front of Melbourne Museum, under that shelter thing. So all the people walking past (or to IMAX) saw us.

But it was fun! I saw some people I knew, and quite a few I didn't. I got to try all sorts of interesting home-made foods people brought. OM NOM NOM MOLASSES COOKIES. And have some intersting conversations - about, among other things, Lovecraft. And also really bad movies.

Oh, and at one point we got asked to pose in the background of someone's wedding photos. Which I suppose will make for some memorable wedding photos (Though it'll be fun when someone else looks at them and asks why they have a photo with a bunch of people in crazy hats).

And we managed to clear out of there before it started raining again. Though I was glad I brought my umbrella.

As for the Alice in Wonderland movie itself, well it was very pretty, but I honestly think the picnic was more fun overall. It was rather predictable in terms of plot - and if there was anything the original books were not, it was predictable. It was also very Tim Burton, for all that entails both good and bad.

The Cheshire Cat was the best thing in it. Yay for Stephen Fry's voice!

In other news, I was informed today that one of my cousins in the US has just gotten engaged! So congratulations to her. I can has trip the USA for the wedding, pls?

You know, soon I will run out of cousins to actually get married. Huh.
