'Don't you worry, babe, our worry days are done'
SSar's Beast
I'm not quite done. I'm doing an all-nighter to get my footnoting done. I'm taking a brief break while Adobe Reader downloads.

I was thinking a lot today (the day preceding this night, anyway) about things I would like to do when I have time that is not dominated by study. Of course, when my time is no longer dominated by study, it may be dominated by wedding plans - eeep - and so forth. There are always ways to fill up time.

But I was dreamily imagining a few things it'd be nice to do with that imaginary free time.

I would like to spend a few hours in second-hand book shops, and actually buy books, and then go home and read bits of them, in the same day, with a cup of tea.

I would like to practise belly-dancing on my deck, using Snowy White's "Solid Gold" album as dance music, possibly with cabaiste84.

I would like to re-read the Hornblower books.

I would like to go visit some tiny little Wellington parks I haven't seen for years. Meekwood Reserve, for example. (It has even more going for it than its name.)

I would like to fix my bicycle and ride it places.

I would like to take a friend and a frisbee and play catch on that triangle of grass around the back of Kelburn Parade.

I would like to watch a movie at home. (When was the last time..?)

I would like to start my beading Bauble Project back up again.

I would like to organise a festschrift project for Robert and Christine.

I would like to finish my scarf and knit - or crochet - a tea cosy.

Anyway, this is the productive part of the night, when I'm not yet too tired to concentrate. Back to work.

(Edit add: 'Eeep' is for organising a wedding. Being married should be at least as super as living with Joel is already. I mean, OH GODS NO DOOOOM AND GLOOM AND SOMEHOW PUPPIES.)

My pile of Books to Read definitely agrees with the wish about being able to read books the same day you buy them. I hope both of us manage that some day.

Good luck with your footnoting!

Yes! Yes!

Thank you.

I am awful in that I buy books seldom and read them even more rarely. I have a slim paperback I bought six months ago which has not come out of its paper bag from the store.

...but I'm a good library borrower, at least.

I realise that, unfortunately, I don't have an article on biscuit typography to show you. But I have this.

I would very much love to belly dance with you on your deck, my love! And play Frisbee!

Aw, and if you need any plans with wedding-related stuff, just say the word. :) Seeing as I'm also getting going with plans for my own Big Day, we can pour over wedding magazines together! That would be just lovely. I know you must be so sick of hearing this, but have you set a date? Only asking because I've been living under a rock lately, and I may have missed you making an announcement!

I'm still not really coherent after my all-nighter (earlier, I wondered if I was hallucinating seeing my mouse cord move - then I realised it was moving, because I was moving it) but basically everything you said is lovely and I have tonnes of wedding magazines that Ellen gave me. First I was grateful for them and now my gratitude is a bit mixed with intimidation. I think you would know better what to do with them.

Yay, you will bellydance with me! You are better at it.
