Essay is not progressing fast enough. In fact, I'm not sure if it's progressing at all. Bah! And my hair is shitting me to tears. I've been due for a haircut for the last 2 or 3 weeks but I haven't had the time (or the funds) to go get one. Split ends everywhere and I've been banned from playing with scissors or clippers. Bond's come back from the old house so I can now afford to go get it (and also get my scripts from the chemist if I can ever find the fuckers now), but I have stupid assignments to do. My red bits have all faded out to nothing too, but I need natural-looking hair for this weekend (or so much as I can look natural anyway) so I can't re-dye them. Phooey.

While I was in Canberra over the weekend I must admit, I had to stop and think when I saw the signs on the highway... Melbourne is only another 600km down the road. I miss my Melbourne ladies something fierce, it's hard to believe it's been 6 months already since I was down there last. Feel like yesterday, feels like forever.
On Wednesday [ profile] knightsmarshall was called to Sydney for an emergency meeting, so he crashed the night at our place and joined us at trivia where we tied first. Hooray!

Thursday morning I got another shift at work, this time sitting in the warehouse counting leaflets and posters and bundling them into job lots. Not especially exciting work, but it was easy and I had my mp3 player and good company. Plus for a good hour of it I got to stare at Daniel Craig as one lot of leaflets was promo material for his next movie. Mmmm...

Then home to pack a bag of clothes and a bigger bag of fabric and back onto the road down to Canberra. [ profile] knightsmarshall and Dee are off to the Jane Austen Ball tonight and I offered to babysit, and Dee still hasn't finished her regency kit *facepalm* Yesterday I whipped her up a set of short stays just like mine (I even managed to handsew all 24 of the eyelets before the end of 'Pride and Prejudice') and made some covered buttons to close her dress. This morning it was more bloody eyelets as I made her a reticule for her wallet/ camera/ etc tonight. Right now we've resewn the sleeves on her dress (they got botched and removed multiple times over the course of the week before I arrived) and I've attached the buttons, now it just needs buttonholes and the bodice lining tacked down and we're finally done, phew! My fingers are blistered and filled with needle holes, and I haven't actually done any of MY kit yet for next weekend :p

I've also been trying to do some reading for uni, although there has been no actual essay progress as yet. Bad Jess.

There has been the tiniest bit of wedding progress though. Cake is now sorted, I have all the shit to send to the printers for the invites (although I haven't sent it yet as I still need to compile it into a useable format, but I have rung my aunt and uncle and apologised for the delay and confirmed that it's all still OK for them to do them for me), and the mother-in-law is trying to make us have a bagpiper, or possibly an entire bloody pipe band *sigh* Apparently the fact that Adam is wearing a kilt means that we're having an entirely scottish/ celtic wedding, which was not our intention at all. Adam just wants a kilt *L*
Epic photo post is epic )

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*
