Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. Hope you're having an excellent day.
Did the Easter Bunny visit you? It visited me, well my little sister anyway. By the way, my sister is 16.
It was an Easter treasure hunt around the yard, complete with cleverly written clues "Where doves cry and passion creeps" meaning our Dove cage that is covered with passion fruit vine, plus others, but that one was the most impressive. It was fun, and yes I did get involved, a little. By the time I was out of bed and showered, she was onto the last clue.

Random things about Work.
  • as of 8.04pm last night there was 351 little chocolate eggs left in the carton.
  • 2 Journey songs are played during the Blockbuster DVD loop (Any Way You Want It in the Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs trailer, and Don't Stop Believin' in the GLEE trailer) (I secretly LOVE Journey =D)
My previously mentioned sister's room is almost done. She's been sleeping in the living room for about 6 months (because my whole family is full of procrastinators) It was painted yesterday. She is the luckiest person in the whole world, I don't know how she did it, but she convinced the parents to let her paint one WHOLE wall BLACK! and the rest of the walls, this completely awesome shade of purple.

Has anyone seen Clash Of The Titans yet? Someone told me it was crap. "A fleeting movie full of mythological inaccuracies" yep, people are that eloquent  in this town. I love my customers.... sometimes. I really want to see it. I don't listen to people when they tell me their opinions about films, I like to make up my own mind. for example, remember the ripping The Chronicles Of Riddick got??? it's in my top 10 favourite movies of all time. That's just how awesome I am.

I'm going to try my hand at "modifying"
I have a bag, that's crappy, but I like the style, so I'm going to change it. Bleach it, Dye it, add studs and chains, just go completely crazy. I'm not overly create so this should be interesting. I'm going to chronicle the change. It might lead to something.
I've always wanted to make my own clothes, but I'm no good with a sewing machine, which is hilarious considering my dad is an Upholsterer and uses a sewing machine everyday, and is completely pro.
So here's the bag, as of right now.

I brought it to go away with last September. I don't remember where I got it. But it's kinda awesome, but can be even more awesome. I'm thinking maybe some studs, and chains. I was thinking of bleaching in a different colour, but I thought it was blue, but ended up being dark grey, so I might leave it. I was thinking dripping bleach on it to get a should of wicked effect, like acid wash jeans.

IDEAS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED


I'm so excited about Melbourne in June. The Tim Burton exhibition, staying at the 4 star Mecure on Spring Street, flying Virgin Blue instead of Jetstar, being with someone that actually wants to do and see the same things as me. I wanted to go to the Melbourne Zoo to see the baby elephant, but I don't think we'll have time. But I'm going to try and convince Tahlia to go to IMAX, hopefully Alice In Wonderland will still be playing (because Star Trek was playing in October, and it was released in May)

Any Melbournites know of any Anime/Comic Book stores in Melbourne CBD, other than Minotaur??


I think that's it for today. I have to help with more painting. =D

HAPPY EASTER!
