This weekend's adventures in relocation involved the purchasing of white goods (fridge and washing machine; not exciting in the least, but time-consuming). Oh yeah, I live the high life. (Also, payday cannot arrive soon enough.) Thankfully, Tess rescued me from myself today and dragged me through various shopping districts (where I fell in lust with expensive boots and spectacularly failed to purchase any clothing suitable for work, but did find a little black dress) and generally humoured me by laughing at my stories.
Apocalypse update: no more earthquakes, but I have used my umbrella more often in the last 3 days than I have in the last 3 years, so it's possible that Melbourne is now gearing up for floods. I apologise. GET TO THE HIGH GROUND. (Don't say I didn't warn you.)
Update on Spawn: a text message from home informs me that Spawn's favourite movie is currently The Princess Bride. This strikes me as a touch advanced for a two and a half year old, but I admit I know not whereof I speak. Regardless, the girl clearly has great taste.
Fun Research Fact of the day: This morning, as part of research for the novel in progress (the faerie novel, for those of you playing along at home), I stumbled across the wikipedia page of unusual deaths. My favourite (well, one of them) is poor Philitas of Cos, said to have studied false arguments and erroneous word-usage so intensely that he wasted away and starved to death.
