I can't sleep. I feel like the time before Luke leaving is slipping through my fingers; we're so busy. Tomorrow I'm starting work early so I can take Luke to Eggless after work, and then I have to sew the ends of his scarf in and block it. Friday morning we have an appointment with the bank, and Friday night Luke has to pack. And then he leaves on Saturday! :(

Yay, somehow managed to leave my headlights on in broad daylight while I was at work, so now I have to wait for the RAA to come and rescue me.

I spent all morning wrangling with car insurance companies, which made me late leaving to buy Luke's Christmas present from Mom, which in turn left me with no time to get some lunch on the way to work. So today I've eaten a cheese stringer and two packets of Twisties. I'm tired and irritable, and all I want to do is go home, eat a pizza and spend some time with Luke.

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on alfalfa, favourite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc.

Writer's Block: Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Do you give your vehicles names? If so, what are they?

No. And I don't know why, but it seriously fucking irritates me when people do.

Writer's Block: Another country

Do you have good friends from other countries that you've met on LiveJournal? Have you ever met them in person? If not, do you think you ever will?

I have a couple of good friends from other countries that I've met on LJ. I haven't met anyone from another country yet, but I hope to meet howtoscream eventually, and I did meet [Bad username: x_wensdai)x], another fabulous Kirsty from Adelaide. And, of course, I met my husband silverleaf_ on here!
Tidied up my flist a little. Have to listen to enough crap from real life people, don't want to read crap on my flist as well.
