So this thing is going around:
Leave your name and
1. I’ll respond with something I like about you.
2. I’ll tell you what song or movie reminds me of you.
3. I’ll ask you a question.
4. I’ll tell you my first/clearest memory of you.
5. I’ll say something that only makes sense to you and me.
6. I’ll describe our final fight to the death.
7. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.

Tony says:

1. I love the way that when something is put before you that you really work for the answer. You really want to understand whats happening and therefore i always lookward to hearing anything you have to say.

2. Matilda (Why?)

3. What is a positive about being single, or therefore a negative about a coupled lifestyle. (Less other people hassles, you can be as selfish as you like :P)

4. It not my first, but it is my clearest. It was in Jan when i was at the Witteveen house hold and so were you, and we had a lovely conversation and they shared their dinner with us. The first would proably be hearing about you from April or Sammy early in 05 and seeing some photos.

5. 3 people count?mmm Question 26?

6. Not sure what will be here, but it could probably be a doctrinal or relationship based conversation where the floor is split, but you will go to bed, coz it will be well after 12 already :P.

7. Now i get to put my name on yours 😀

Sam says:

1. Only one? I like how you tell the truth, even when sometimes its hard. I like your laughter, your honesty, and yes, sometimes even your bluntness.

2. Garden State

3. What are you doing thursday? (Homework and I might grab afternoon tea with that friend of mine that lives up the road 😉

4. Not the first, but one of the early ones. centre trip, waking you up and you telling me to go away, and you later apologising for that. it makes me chuckle every now and then 😛

5. err… ha ha! i have it! something talked about over chai tea, in a crowded local cafe ;)…

6. would there be one?

7. You have to put this on your blog now. this is strike 2… 😛

Hannah says:

1. your good moods… and when you can be bothered conversing nicely/properly

2. Sabrina because of your strange love affair with it.

3. how do you see me, not as a sister, but as a person? What don’t you know about me?

4. playing a game in Auki with magazines and paper dolls

5. weirdest way you ever met someone.

6. I’ll kill you quickly and make you into a pie…which i will then feed to the family. If you got me first, you’d attempt cookies. Don’t try it.

7. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal.


I overslept this morning – not so much as to be a problem, but I happened to leave my wallet and phone at home.

By mid morning I worked out it was really not a good day to choose to leave the student card at home. I have an assignment due tomorrow that requires a short video component. I stupidly left it until today to borrow the equipment from the Library. You happen to need your student card for such loans.

I managed to work out a way around it by getting the camera and drivers under Jess’s name, after waiting around until 3pm when she showed – and then had to track down Adrian to get him to sign a permission form (how school).

So I have the equipment. I get it back down to the Studio and realise that I’d forgotten I’d need a memory card (don’t have one) the super intelligence in my brain forgot such things as a dv tape. Adrian points out my oversight – now I have an alternative, but no tape and no money to get one.

Adrian (who’s Studio tutor) lends me some money 😮 and I head on up to the DUSA store. There I find a tape. $12. The girl asks me how my day has been. Not so good, I briefly mention leaving phone/money home. She goes, “Oh you’ll get home and have all these messages!” (mildly horrified) – Can you give a rueful smile mentally? Messages – hahahha the phone is the least of my worries. I’m lucky if I get one a day.

Back to the Studio. I take a few minutes of random footage of pretty much nothing. Adrian leaves, I’m again the only one around.

I plug the camera in first on the PC I am logged into. Nothing. I put the cd with the drivers in, the computer wants admin acess before it’ll let me do anything. Like that’ll happen. I try various other means – zip.

I try it in a MAC. It doesn’t even have enough guts to recognise the CD. I restart. Nothing. I try another Mac, both firewire and the USB. At least this time it recognises the CD. I open the stupid instruction book (after trying everything) and follow it, copy driver files to where they should be. Nothing. I restart. Nothing.

And here I am after having sent a ‘this is what’s happened’ email to my tutor – which may or may not go down well.

I am very over it. I am very annoyed I spent $12 on a tape that to me is practically useless. I am very annoyed I have to sit here almost another hour waiting for Jess because every other little bit of homework that needs to be done tonight is at home.

My mouth has had that, “You still are sick” strange taste to it all day.
