And, for reason known only to herself, The Sister decided to come up a little early, and ended up crashing on the iPartment couch from Saturday onwards.
Which was rather...random.
On Saturday, we toddled over to neo_leviathan's party for a bit (along with fa11ing_away and her marvellous crutches). However, geekery and learning to play crazy card games is apparently not The Sister's idea of a fun party, so we left early (and, apparently, before all the fun stuff happened. *sigh*)
At which point we came back to the iPartment, had some food, and...watched The Phantom Menace.
And my sister claims she isn't a geek?
Anyways, on Sunday we did some shopping, firstly in the city, and then at the Vic Market, which was rather fun - I got some lovely stripey toe-socks, and a cheap skirt, and this great beaded belt thingy, and My Squishy. (Eeee, Squishy!)
And then we hung around for a bit until the parentals arrived (they were staying in a motel), and we went out for dinner at a Turkish place. Which was rather nice, if they gave us way, way too much food.
Oh, and for dessert I had a furry monster. (Don't ask).
And then, this morning was the Games. I had to get up far too early, and then we headed down to the MCG to see some athletics. Which wasn't bad, though it would have been rather better if I didn't have to leave so early, and thus could have actually seen some more of it. Or if I wasn't so tired.
But I got thunder sticks out of it, so yay!
Also, iPartment is now networked. Mwahahaha!
