Bunny photos from last week.

Camping photos, yaaay!

My fat lip.

Something I've been meaning to do for the last couple of years is learn to make my own bread and pasta. Well yesterday I happened to notice that my giant box of yeast is almost expired (I make my own pizza bases, but I haven't made pizza in ages as the local store is almost as good as mine and it means pizza is once again a Jess'-night-off food), and ages ago someone on my f-list linked me to Making Your Own Bread In 5 Minutes A Day so I decided to give it a go. It's damn tasty, a little chewier then I'd like for a white bread but then again is it my first go. I think my next batch will be fluffier, but on the other hand I'm thinking I might keep some of this one aside and use it as a sourdough starter for some serious nom. I'm also going to do some with olives in it and such because it's AWESOME.

I also got around to dying my wool today. It's seriously thick stuff so I sadly had to cut it in half to get it to fit in the dye bath. The first lot came out darker then the second which was expected, although I boiled the second batch for an extra 20 minutes in the hope that it wouldn't be as noticeable. Ahh well. I may eventually make myself a sailors coat out of it now that it's a proper colour, but right now it's to add a collar to Adam's jacket for Lithgow next fortnight as the cannoneers jackets they sent us fit me but are comically small for him. The first photo is a more accurate representation of the colours, the second is with the flash on so it's clearer.

Now my hands are purple.

Had a chiro appointment today, she's happy with my progress and I'm down to fortnightly visits, woot! I also went to Just Remnants and got free fabric, huzzah! I got a bunch of remnants (surprise!) ranging from 0.5-2m in some gorgeous satins and silk dupion, it came to $19.80 and I had a $20 voucher... also had a great conversation with the chick behind the counter about fabric and camping, we always have a long chat when I go in there although I'm pretty sure she doesn't remember me.

It's also pissed down rain all yesterday so the tents are no longer dry. Then they were getting close to the point where we could take them down again this afternoon when a massive thunderstorm hit. Although Jake didn't zip the door up when he put his up on Sunday and the inside filled with water *facepalm* Boys are useless Alec Baldwin!

Got my first mark of the year back- a Credit+ for the sound assignment. Fuck yeah! Apparently we were very close to a Distinction, but the sound quality let us down (static and volume changes etc), however since we were recording in a pub and also with a PA system they admit we did damn well and our mixing was great, our chosen topic was interesting and our narrative was very strong. Hip hip huzzah! Personally I think the 'static' she heard was to do with the fact that we had to compress to an mp3 and possibly to do with the speakers they used as it sounded way clearer on my computer than on the uni projecter. Ahh well.

Now I just need to get motivated to start my next 3 essays due in a fortnight *sigh*

Camping? But where's the room service?

*looks baffled*

Purple is definitely your colour, but that lip looks ouchy. :(

Hehe well the other Jess made Luc jaffles in bed, but Adam was not so lucky. I did end up doing all the cooking though since he got a bit of a cold and was feeling sooky (never mind that I had the same cold :p).

Other then the initial bite it didn't really hurt too much, it just felt incredibly weird and made it hard to do things like drink or smoke as I couldn't close my mouth properly. As I said, there were many elephant man jokes.

I was one day last week. This week I got to sit in a warehouse and count pieces of paper. Normally I spend my time handing out said pieces of paper on street corners. Ahh well, it pays OK and they're happy to work around my uni schedule, it just means that some months I don't get any shifts at all.

I work for a promotions company :) though them I've done work for Lush, ING, Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Opera House, seek.com.au... at least the changing campaigns keeps it interesting :)

Sounds good! Although permanent Lush discounts would be nice, too.
