Friday night was the KAOS Halloween party and I went as The Grudge. It was badarse and there were compliments on the creepy, but alas I don't have any other photos than that one of me creeping at the door of the LFoD.

On Saturday night we did our now annual horror movie Halloween with candy and delicious and scary ourselves silly. The movie selection this year was Mirrors, The Ward, Hide & Seek, and Skeleton Key. (Our warm-up during the week was Simpson's Treehouse of Horror episodes and Scream 4.)

In the middle of all this stuff we had a girly tea-party. Because.


I am 172 centimeters tall.
This makes me taller than 25.1% of men and 85.7% of women.

Huh.

I was having this discussion yesterday with Lara about how I always think that I'm average height or just below average, probably because most of my friends are at least a half an inch taller than me and because both of my parents are taller. I still wish I was taller though. I feel more like my 'proper' height in a pair of high heels, which is why I don't really like wearing flats. (The 'living with people who skew the average' is the reason I always think of myself as still being flat-chested when I'm a C. I blame living with three girls who were DDs and above.)

Alison is doing NaNo right now, you guys! SHE'S A FOOL!
Ooooh, it's a living room computer OoooOOOooOOOOoooOOOOOoo. Since mine is dead, Lara so kindly offered to put her desktop in the living room (because she's a GODDESS) and so I am now trying to get used to the EPICLY HUGE SCREEN on it as well as the slightly different keyboarder. (I'm a crazy two finger typer but I don't look at the keys and I do it quite quickly - MY TYPING AMUSES JEN NO END - and thus typing on keyboards I'm not perfectly adjusted to means I keep hitting the wrong keys.)

It's very shiny though. So big and shiny and connected to the internet. Which, as we know, is the most important thing.

And now I put a question to you. Who's going to come see the new Predators movie with me when it comes out? trailers... )
This weekend I'm going to get to see Neil Gaiman. It's only started really kicking in in the last day or so and now I'm sort of like !!! about it. NEIL. MEETING NEIL. I think I might faint, you guys. He's so !!!

I'll also be seeing Amanda Palmer on the same weekend and then again the next weekend. I feel so shiny and awesome. And tonight we're finishing Battlestar and that is pretty damn shiny as well.

Life is sweet. I'm kind of thrilled to be a part of it right at this moment.
It's raining and so lovely.

Living with [livejournal.com profile] artemisofluna is a blast. She's hilarious and sweet and she cooks. That's an all service Lara right there.

(Also, last night at about 3am me and Lara moved the fridge and cleaned under it. IT HAD TO BE DONE. There are photos and it's horrifying.)
The blindingly fantastic [livejournal.com profile] artemisofluna has once again DUMPED ME HORRIBLY AND ABANDONED ME TO BE A TEARY MESS left our New Zealand shores. We had rather a whirlwind time with her (a week is nowhere near long enough!) and the number of DVDs (as well as kettles and electric frying pans) has doubled... or maybe more than doubled in regards to the DVDs. Girl love her TV shows. We had Mexican Cafe times, showed her the entirely of The Mighty Boosh, lay in the Gardens and dozed in the sun, shopped for sensible grown up house things, jumped all over beds that didn't belong to us, consumed our weight in popcorn, and failed to find a coffee maker that suited our requirements. The LFoD requests that she come back right now and play more.

NaNo news: I've not written a word since Lara came over - as is fair - and now I have to write about four thousand a day if I want to finish. And I do, so I will. But... not right now.
NaNo starts tomorrow at midnight! Ohshit!

I have a whole cast of characters to write about, but the plot at the moment is so very loose. I'm hoping that I'll just start writing and it will all form itself. Hopefully. All that is important is that it's about 17th century Dutch werewolves, baby. I am going to not worry too much about historical accuracy with this because, well, it's NaNo and not exactly something I'm going to try and get published or anything.

If you're interested, I'll be it all up at [livejournal.com profile] _everdream. It's locked so you'll have to join the comm to read it though. I just don't like having all my writing out in public :)

It's cold and I have to go get milk :/

But Lara will be here in exactly to weeks! :D

He's a really short post to cover a lot of stuff: Australia was freaking amazing and I already miss being in Nimbin and seeing my parents, all three of whom rule with an iron fist of pure awesome and love.

Lara was here for the last four days and it was FANTASTIC and Alison and I very nearly didn't let her go home to her darling Lewi at all. SHE'S OURS, HOR! OURS!

The first night of the 48 Hour Party (the only night I attended) was good fun and I ate all of the vodka jellies.

Tuesday there is a teaparty and I will be the Cupcake Queen.
