I love spending time with Wyrren. I do not love swallowing so much phlegm that I feel nauseous. This is the one year where my dagwood dog did not immediately make me wish to vomit, and I feel that the cold spoiled my triumph. D: We wandered and secured a seat on Machinery Hill and watched Ford/Holden ute battles and a monster truck and a confusing game of polo that just made me think of the twins. It was very cold. We bought showbags and wandered, but there's not a great deal going on at night.
I was calculating, and I now have 52 hours a week for transport, eating, showering, assignments, and sanity!writing. I am going to be very, very dead come November.
I had a consultation with Craig today about the writing sample of Conductor.
CRAIG: It's, um. I'm a little concerned.
ME: It was awful, wasn't it? I was coming down with something. It came out stilted and horrible.
CRAIG: It really did. But I read your stuff from last semester, so I know you can do better than this.
ME: Yes. That is also my most fervent hope.
CRAIG: Incidentally, you should watch Dead Like Me
ME: Um. Sure. I'll get on to that.
In other news, I am going to a) sleep, or b) study Japanese now. I am hoping for the latter, but I'm still fairly goddamn fuzzy, so we'll see how that works out.
[EDIT] Since Squeaker posted this, I have to say it's pretty much the greatest Link skit ever.
Also very nice flute.Pachelbel Rant
. So. Fucking. True. XD Those poor, poor cellists. Pachelbel's Canon is pretty fucking boring even for violinists, but for cellists? Fuck me blind. XD XD XD I sympathise entirely with this man. XD XD XD I am way too amused at, "Even the second violins got nice melodies, WHICH JUST SHOULDN'T HAPPEN."
(It is not entirely true. We get the same notes for half of it and then it doubles. But we still get more than the cellists.)
