decades & housing
Rather boozy, movey weekend. Fuelled with the usual. Good wine, heels (sans orthotic) and friends.
The Dove gave me this necklace from Nepal last night.
She has the exact same one. I shall wear it forever. It's a silver and turquoise stone endless knot of luck. I'd never pass by on a tangible token of luck. Isn't it beautiful?
We got pissed last night. On her balcony. I decided I want to be an actress.
So we wrote a script. And this morning realised, after quaffing a litre of 'Summer Pine,' to quench the Gandhi's Slip Slop taking residence in my pie-hole, that it'll never happen. And really, it's fine.
All my mates are turning 30.
And in 4 months time, so will I. I should be freaking out, buying Botox and a Stair Master from Verimark, but I'm not. We're all hitting our next decade. I wonder what it'll hold. I'm actually fucking excited. Because it can't be as crazy and turbulent and unpredictable as our 20s. I'm not buying patio sets and buckets of tile grouting just yet, but the good news is I could, if I wanted to.
Went to Doc's 30th yesterday. His family always serves the most tender fillet in town. Crisis it was good.
My Brit looks at cake totally differently to the way I do.
Bless, he has such a sweet tooth. His face actually visually lightens up when he looks at cake or chocolate. Look, I like cake as much as the next person. But if I got marooned on Aldabra without chocolate, I'd be fine for another 20 years. What would kill me, would be the endless pining and sufferage I'd face without cheese.
I think I may have found myself a prospective new home.
I have been scouring the UK interwebs for a room in a place to share. Somewhere as close to work (which is in Victoria) as possible. I'd rather pay more for the rent than the commute. I'll be spending a fortune, but if it means I'm in a cool, peri-central area, close to work, I'm game.
I hope this lady gets back to me on this amazing-sounding flat in Earl's Court. On this road: (How idyllic?)
Sigh. Call me. Call me. Call me.
