June 25-30

*I attended a genuine business conference, with representatives from things like Meridian Energy and the Department of Corrections, wearing a name tag for "Veridian Dynamics"
*I bumped into four friends by accident on my very first day back from Sydney
*I made up a costume out of clothes from Farmers, went to a medieval party called the Feast of Fools, drank mulled wine, learned four or five dances, and followed a live ass around a hall in a procession for the Vespers of the Ass
*I went to the vege market
*I wrote a really nice letter to Joel's grandmother
*I advanced two levels in Starcraft

And now I am back at work in the daytime and procrastinating on an Icelandic essay during the evenings.

Hmmm... I am finding this all a bit much to write about in detail!

Heh. It's a neat little game. Where did he/she buy it, but the way? Because my copy is really odd, but I think that could be something to do with the site I bought it from.

How've you been?

better off ted reference FTW!
sounds like you've been having a blast! i am very envious of your ability to go whale watching. i get terrible sea-sickness and am trying to learn to accept that there are some things i just can't do.
what was the very nice suprise?

Hee, yeah, I wore my name tag around for the rest of the day, until it fell off.

You would have hated the whale-watching I went on, then. The first trip, there were swells of 3m and the kid in the front threw up as soon as we got out of the harbour. We were in a zippy little 11m adapted surf-rescue boat, which was really safe but also really bouncy. We only saw one whale, and I got a return voucher. There were more whales, and better weather, the second day.

The nice surprise was a bit kinky. Not giving any details, since I didn't want to friends-lock this post.

Are you doing anything for Sando's birthday, by the way?
