Well today has been a whirlwind and sorry I haven't been posting for a while, I'm busy helping a drama group choreograph their play. Speaking of the play, here's a trailer for it...oooh scary

In other news today I went to see 'Wicked' in Dublin and before that we got to stop at a shopping centre. I won a €50 gift card in a public-speaking contest about 3 months ago and of course I head straight for HMV. Bloody hell, the prices were ridiculous! As much as I do want to spend €16 on Let It Be...Naked (the cover is also badly scratched) I think I'll let that one slide. I picked up a copy of 'Live At The BBC: Volume 2' and seeing there was no Volume 1 I went up to the counter to ask (they had the joint collection edition amabob for €42 :O, no way in bloody hell was I spending that on 2 CDs ) Imagine a heavily Dublin-accented man standing at the counter

I walked up with a copy of V2 and Eric Clapton: Unplugged Deluxe edition

Me: Hello, good kind gent* Have you got LATBBC V1?

Him: Ahhhhh we should 'ave

Me: Yes, well you have V2 and no V1 in the racks so I was hoping you'd have it out the back or whatever

Him: Now let me say, ahhhhh....ahhhhhh.....ahhhhhhhh No, no we don't

Me: Right, well I saw you had The Traveling Wilburys Volume 3 but I was wondering if you had TTW Collection

Him: Now that one we definitely have....ahhhhhh...ahhhhh actually no we don't

Me: Alright then so I'll just get The Beatles and Clapton CD. Is it alright if I use a gift card *pulls out All For One voucher*? 

Him: Ahhhh no we don't except them any more, new management, ye know

Me: (Sadly) Alright then, I can't pay for the Clapton CD so I'll just get The Beatles then :(

Him: Right so, sorry about that

Me: It's alright :(

 

It was a sad event, saying goodbye to a Clapton CD for the second time in 4 months :(

Anyhoo I went to a bookshop and spend €25 getting 3 Game of Throne's books on my gift card, so I still have €25 left hazah!

'Wicked' was brilliant but on the way back, some stupid 12 year old, first year girls were sitting in my front of my friend, creeping us out with their soul-penetrating stares. We ended up having a slagging match for the last 20 minutes of our bus trip, so it was quite amusing. Nobody will ever win against me in a slagging match :P I had to walk home and one of them warned me she was a boxer, ooooohhh I'm so scared of a 12 year old boxer a-hard-days-night-george-10Listen little girl, I have 2 older brothers, I have been fighting since I was 4, nobody especially a 12 year old is going to beat me in a fight a-hard-days-night-paul-11

The paper I wrote with 3 colleagues just got accepted to the American Library Association's Technical Services Journal. Celebration!!!!

AND...my director has approved and passed on my promotion portfolio. Now, the portfolio goes to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, then the President, then the state Board of Regents. I will know the VP's decision by February 15th, the president's by March 15th, and the Regent's decision by May 15th. If you can spare any positive vibes please send them in the direction of those who will be reviewing my portfolio.

Awesome news - I'm confident it will all sail through now :)

I got my braces on the top today, they're being annoying right now, and I popped a bracket off biting my fingernails literally before we got out the orthodontist's door.

Then, for the THIRD straight game (only 3 games played, too), my hockey team scored the first 2 goals, then either tied or lost the game. I still don't have any goals. 

I'm fine though, I was freezing during my game, total opposite of Australia it seems. 

Edit: And now I can't  find my earbuds, so I'm using my crappy ones that only have one working bud, so I have to set my audio to mono (Which is a nice feature, I will say, my old iPod couldn't do it) and they were crappy even before one side broke. And I have a crap load of tests in school tomorrow. And I'm learning Maybe I'm Amazed and Jet on bass for a McCartney medley at my huge St. Patrick's Day party, which is actually going pretty well. But I'm also supposed to be learning Let It Be, but it's really hard and I lost my music for it and it's the second time I've lost it. And I've been sick for a week. And I probably have a lot more things to complain about, to be added at a later date.

Edit: I have now found my good earbuds, so that's good. And this is a really long post, and a double post at that. So I should stop.

Does your area have any relief from the heat in sight?

I'm very sad to hear of the passing of actor Roger Lloyd Pack. I first knew him through watching his dead-pan expressions in Only fools and Horses, one of the greats of British comedy tv. Very sad, indeed.

I didn't even know he was unwill so this is a real shock. Roger was a great actor and comedian, Trigger being of the best characters in Only Fools and Horses whilst Owen, who he played in the Vicar of Dibley, was the funniest of the lot. 

Trigger's conversation with Rodney in the clip below is one of my favourite scenes of OFAH. 

He told us not to get overwhelmed by grief and whatever thoughts we have... to keep them happy, because any thoughts we have of him will travel to him wherever he is. (John Lennon - 27/8/67)

So, did you get the book via Interlibrary Loan?

Still a couple of days away apparently.  We are a bit lucky here as it went down to 16 (60) overnight so we got a cooler hour or two in the morning - Adelaide only went down to a minimum of 30 (86).

The thing with the heat here of course is that we hope there are not too many bushfires and that no one gets injured / killed if there are.  Ten years ago now so we are all remembering the fires that decimated parts of Canberra in 2003 - luckily no chance of that again as the place is not as overgrown as it was back then.

Glad you can still look on the positive side if only for just a moment. We had a doozy of fire during high heat and drought two summers ago. The landscape is still scared.

I hope you have some ice cream in the freezer.

^ Got lots :)

Hope the fire didn't get too close to you back then.  They evacuated our suburb back in '03 and had a few of us volunteers keeping vigil overnight - all I could see was red sky everywhere and crazy heat, luckily we were spared - though a half-dozen or so houses burned down about 4 streets away.
