I’m back, and it’s not necessarily a good thing. After ten days on the rain soaked central coast and Sydney, to come home to drought ravaged south west NSW is quite depressing. Even more depressing is the fact that JB still haven’t released tour dates, but we’ll get onto that at a later date.
So yes, holiday. I achieved many things in the past ten days, some of which included:
- Gaining an addiction to vitamin water. Nick Jonas drank orange and yellow vitamin water non-stop when he gave up Diet Coke so I knew it couldn’t be all bad, but when I went to the footy there was *gasp* no powerade, so red vitamin water it was. Let me tell you, it was love at first sip.
- Reading Miles To Go. Yes, Miley Cyrus’ autobiography. I know, me, Miley’s number one hater reading her book, but it surprised me. I actually enjoyed it, I get her more now, I’m starting to like her. Sure, there were the really annoying bits, and the irrelevent bits, and the bits that made you think ‘Why on Earth is this sixteen year old writing about her life?’ But it was good, and you all should read it. But buy it from target for $16, not Borders for $27, it’s not worth more than $20 let me tell you.
- Going to my first ever AFL game. Swans v Hawks. I hate AFL, I call it gayfl, arial ping pong, abuse it, get into arguments about it and basically refuse to like it. I’m a rugby girl through and through, but we were staying next to ANZ stadium and daddy decided it would be ‘fun’ to go. Don’t tell anyone, but I kind of enjoyed it. Sure, it was long, it was too easy to get points and I didn’t know many rules, but I didn’t hate it. I’m not saying I’m rushing off to play, I’m still not even a fan, but it’s something.
- Seeing Slumdog Millionaire. No joke, this movie is amazing. I know it’s been out for ages, but it wasn’t out around here so I hadn’t gotten around to seeing it. It was so worth the wait. The little characters were so adorable, especially little Jamal. If you haven’t seen it, go now, or you can wait for the dvd which comes out really soon.
- Seeing The Dark Knight. Don’t hit me, I know it was like a massive as movie and was amazing and everyone saw it, but I didn’t want to. I bought my brother the dvd and daddy basically forced me to watch it, and after it all, I don’t like it. I don’t think it was as amazing as everyone said it was. I don’t think Heath Ledger was that legendary. Sure, he was good, but I’ve seen better. The only good thing about watching it is I can know say I honestly believe that if Heath hadn’t died, he wouldn’t have won the oscar…
- Going to three sports in three days. I already mentioned the AFL, but the next day I went to the rugby (as I mentioned in my last post), and then Monday I went to the netball. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday I spent at least two hours at the state swimming carnival, so for someone who hates sport with a passion, I sure saw a lot of it in the last couple of days.
- Reading another Jodi Picoult book. I don’t know why I keep going back to her as an author – her books are twisted and the ending is never really happy, but the other day I bought her newest book ‘Handle With Care’. It’s not her worst, and it’s most like My Sisters Keeper. The last chapter is so twisted though you’ll be wishing you never read the book. My advice? Read it, but leave out the last chapter.
- Went Shopping. Hell yes! I didn’t buy a lot, but I did get a jacket, a top, a skirt, a pair of heels, some boots and some majorly cute new Paul Frank pjs.
- Conquered my fear of the QVB. Uhm yeah, that one right there deserves a post of it’s own…
All in all, it was much fun. But I’m back now, wagging school today as we didn’t get home until after midnight last night (this morning?), posting normally again as of now. Thanks for putting up with my hiatus 😀
