I spent all day here alone doing my assignment; the rest went to Hahndorf (German historic village thing). I didnâ€™t mind, I wanted the time alone. I got it done eventually, it took me a while to get started, fairly happy with the result.
Got on msn for a bit. Some of those really good/important/decent conversations that get cut short â€“ bit frustrating.
This evening we went to Hawkers corner via Officeworks. Wendy was buying a computer or something. Emily and Hannah were having fun with a label machine, after, â€œSo long and thanks for all the fishâ€, Laura made me one, â€œGush is my lifeâ€ â€“ I stuck on my wallet â€“ Gush is hardly my life, but itâ€™s a cool sticker. I made another, which I will send to a certain someone to deal with.
Hawkerâ€™s corner, if you are from Adelaide you probably know of it. Indian/Chinese/Malay/Thai food all in one. I had butter chicken and garlic nann, yum, ha despite curry having grown on me Iâ€™m a creature of habit. Butter Chicken hardly counts as curry â€“ Em thought it was spicy â€“ it wasnâ€™t. (Thatâ€™s Indian curry that has grown on me, Thai curry is not good at all). Anyway, I was in the line ordering and Hannah behind me, started laughing, and the older guy behind me gave me a funny look. Later I find out I have an, â€œOkapi are aceâ€ sticker on my backâ€¦ Hannahâ€™s doing. The older guy pointed it out to her and she had to explain first that she put it there and that Okapi are animals.
In front of Laura and I was this pedantic freak of a woman (ok Iâ€™m tired) she was arguing her ordering with the poor guy behind the counter, acting kind of racist, it annoyed me, then she pulled out her calculator and gave a condescending scowl when the price was correct â€“ had me to the point of rolling my eyes and a sorry smile (though I dare say I donâ€™t give them very well, more like a â€˜what a pain she isâ€™ smile), I was nudging Laura who was being eternally patient, as always, I think she was as annoyed as I was.
During dinner, a younger guy hanging round waiting for empty plates and stuff â€“ was interesting he was watching our table I think, that and the TV. I stood on his foot when we got up to leave â€“ ha, sort of missed seeing him, such a me thing to do. Wendy doing her usual chattery thing, telling him that it was 5 years since weâ€™d been there. I do remember it from last time. Itâ€™s worth an occasional visit, not much for eating atmosphere â€“ too noisy for me, but thatâ€™s not why you go there. I was outrageously full afterwards
Also, whatâ€™s with South Australians and Farmers Union Iced Coffee? Sure itâ€™s nice, but one of the highest selling drinks!
Played Trivial Pursuit when we got home, all of us but Mum â€“ which is probably a good thing for the rest of us, sheâ€™s rather good. It was taking way too long, so we bent the rules a bit. I was losing badly, then made nice comeback and came a tied second with Dad. Wendy won. Majorly outdated, do they make a Gen Y version?
Iâ€™m tired now, not sure why, itâ€™s not as if Iâ€™ve been doing a whole lot today.
Not as if Iâ€™m the hugest fan, but I do like the Delta Goodrem song, â€˜Fragileâ€™ â€“ sort of rediscovered it today. Itâ€™s piano music a lot of her stuffâ€“ which is why I like it, that and she has an amazing voice, pity most of the songs are a bit clichÃ©d.
Mmm anyway. Sleep perhaps. Not a clue what tomorrow holds. 🙂 the world for all I know.
