jewellery! (pretty green earrings c/o cousin snef, with venice beads, and fabulous wombat necklace from JT - so cute! thankyou!)
vegan cheese cake! (from rhizome on broadway)
so i got the proposal done (including massive bibliography i've yet to read any of) and did a major draft of my major paper. i'm pretty happy with the way that essay is put together now (this is the women's studies one about _this bridge we call home_), but the drafting process was long. luckily i had someone saying "here's your wine, now go to your room and *work*. i'll call you when dinner's ready." love ya, VTA!
we have been eating *so* well, and have gyoza plans for tonight, with ziggy (current housemate), chicory's human (ex-housemate), his mother, winifred and various others. VTA and i have also been enjoying lots of bubbly, and lots of random wandering round the drive, trying on vegan shoes (v. spunky but also v. expensive) and buying local organic fruit and veg.
um, what else? we went to a drunken party at anne's old place, which turned out to be full of melbournianians. that was interesting. oh yes, winifred and i spent a whole day riding around in the *pissing* down rain, going to our victorian class out in kits then back to our caribbean class, held this week in a caribbean restaurant off main st. that was kinda fun, in a butch way. god we were wet, though. it's been raining a lot.
there was another drive festival - wooot! VTA and i bumped into everyone we know and looked at all the pretty people and pretty things. i bought some bicycle merchandise and a new taillight cos someone swiped my old one. uncool. but ziggy is friends with the owner of the local bikeshop, so it was cool to support his business. hmmm. aunty kant, arbitrator of cool?
between all the gallivanting and domesticity i have been studying hard and procrastinating like a fiend. i read three novels in two days, including that doorstop book everybody's banging on about. it was okay. my child_lit elist has gone gaga, and i'm reading frantically just trying to keep the number of unread emails under 100. they're providing good critical feedback, which is nice.
i wanna put my bed on stilts.
