    AIV Stuff
    Yesterday we had a 13 hour meeting. We collated songbooks and scores.. we stuck in extra pages to African Sanctus.. we stuffed goody bags.. we talked about logistics.. we generally got a lot of stuff done.

    We are all stuffed and wishing this festival would bloody start already :)

    I just keep feeling like I have a billion tasks to do for IV and I keep getting stuck waiting for other people before I can get them done..

    And that's really distracting and I feel like I'm not getting anything completed. It's killing me.

    I really like being able to tick something off the list - it makes me feel closer to "finished"

    Joke from "Dead like me"
    What do you call a guy who hangs out with three musicians?

    The Drummer.

    Centrelink Suck
    I got a letter the other day saying something along the lines of "Now that you've finished studying you'd better make an appointment to see us and sign a piece of paper or else we'll cut you off". So I rang them and they said "Just see someone when you had your form in". Okay, So when I handed my form in they said "We'll make an appointment for you for the 10th January".

    So I go in today for my appointment. I had to wait in a line for 20 minutes to tell them I was there.. then waited around for a while until I could see someone who was obviously pissed off that I was late for my appointment... which I was on time for.. but couldn't let them know I was there for 20 minutes. Anyway, I get into the appointment and they realise that they've called me up too early and they have to reschedule for mid February. So that's all I did at my appointment which wasted an hour of my life.. I rescheduled.

    I'm noticing that now that I've set up funky scripts to collect my delicious links and post to my blog (rather than overdoing the "blog this" fuction) that I've ended up with rather a lot of posts in a row of just links. So I felt I had to write something.. and should really post here more often again.

    I've been posting most things to my LJ just because they're silly memes or private stuff that I just want to share with a few people. Which is kind of the point.. but I haven't really just written about normal stuff for a while.

    Today we had a huge committee meeting for IV.. which took forever. So much to do. It nearly killed us all though. We came out wrecked. And now I am too poor to go watch "The Goonies" at the moonlight cinema.. Damien's coming over soon and we will watch something random on DVD or play cards or dribble shit or something. Yay. :)

    Last night's housewarming was brilliant. I think everyone that came had fun.. and Alasdair and I had fun.. which is special for the hosts.. :) The house is thoroughly warmed. And still trashed because I can't be fucked cleaning up yet.. and obviously neither could Alasdair. *sigh* Later. Later. Later. So not now.

    Highlights of the night included me smashing a full martini glass with a phone... and killing the phone also. Way to go me. heh.

    Right, well Damien's here. Going now.

    Now that the world is open for business as usual I have a *huge* day ahead of me calling people for AIV related things.

    Then maybe, I'll actually do some exercise.

    My resolution for the day is that at some point I'll sit down and write some new year's resolutions :P

    Blah. Already tired just thinking about today.
