Presents from friends

I have some rad friends.

Yesterday, my friend Kate sent me a present in an email. It was a youtube video of Gene Kelly tap dancing on rollerskates. Beautiful!

Today my workmates went to Harris Park and came back with Turkish delight and a big bag of nuts for us to eat together in the afternoon.

When I came home I checked the mail and there was a parcel from my friend Brad. It was a book with a chapter written by him and Jen. I have famous friends!

Then I got a message from Saz and Dan. They heard our car is out of action for the next couple of weeks (we were in an accident a few weeks ago and it is getting repaired). They are going to lend us their car so that we can get around in the meantime! How cool is that!?

Oh! I am feeling so good right now. I heart my friends.

skeletal post.

I was definitely going to wrote something that would be enjoyable to read, but I am too tired. Instead here is a boring list of things that I have done recently. I will enjoy reading this in a year’s time when I get bored and look back through my journal to see what I did in December 2008.

1. I have one more semester of uni left.
2. I have watched some old 1950s musicals.
3. Matt got a lemon tree for his birthday. We are trying to make sure it stays alive long enough to grow lemons.
4. I started work at Anglicare. It is fun, especially when the maps get printed on the laser printer onto A3 paper. They look hot.
5. I got offered extra work by a non denominational organisation that partners with Anglicare – the National Church Life Survey (NCLS). They are almost a Christian version of the Australian Bureau of Statistics. I make maps for them too.
6. I got sunburnt with Saz. We also went up a lighthouse and caught a ferry.
7. Later that day, Dan and I lost a game of 500 in a spectacularly terrible way.
8. I went on mission to St Peters church. It was pretty much amazing.
9. I met up with Dave again. It was also pretty much amazing.
10. I met Kat! It was PRETTY MUCH AMAZING!!
11. I received my uni results – first ever high distinctions in Geography and Social Policy ever! That’s right! I got two!!
12. I need to spend more time with my sister. I like her. I wish she could drive.

Time for bed.
