Last night, [info] - personalspaceman, Our friend Mali and I went to see Were the World Mine, which was part of the Gay Film Festival. It was spectacular. I haven't been this impressed with a film since Crash. The cinema we were in had some issues with colouring/lighting and there was a group of people who kept talking quite loudly throughout the film, but it was still amazing. I want the DVD so much. It comes out on Amazon on June 9th.

Patriotism at its finest

On the weekend my brother purchased some new, very expensive, very loud speakers.
This is part of the conversation that just transpired between him and two of his friends:

T: Where were they made?
C: American.
G: You shouldn't spend all that money on American stuff.
T: You should spend it on Australian stuff.
T & G in unison: Like beer!

At least I can be grateful that they have some understanding of the economy... or something.

God, is that you?

I just received a phone call from somebody whose voice I do not recognise, informing me that I've been accepted to Hogwarts.
I'm assuming that one of my friend's is behind it, but I can't imagine which one.
Time will tell, one supposes.

One a penny, Two a penny

I'm still a wee bit wasted trashed hungover groggy from the weekend's post-exam failure celebrations, but I mentioned on my Twitter that I'd post this. As Tweets are binding contracts, I guess I must.

On Friday (Good Friday), whilst staying at a friend's house with a group of friends, my friend Cate woke me up at 7am and insisted that we make hot cross buns. She then fell asleep rather promptly.
I, however, continued to bake.
Here is the result.

I forgot that they wouldn't become perfectly round on their own and thus didn't bother smoothing them down. My crosses were also very a bit wonky.
Nonetheless, they tasted rather marvelous.
I got the recipe off the internet, for once.

I just had one of the greatest weekends ever. I hope everyone else's weekends were productive/enjoyable.

Happy Easter, Everyone!

Funny emails

I just finished my Biology assignment and don't feel inclined to sleep, so I thought I'd post some funny email conversations I've had with my friend [livejournal.com profile] shenniefish 

[livejournal.com profile] shenniefish :
This is getting weird. [name omitted] and I were talking about how Gmail needed a webcam chat, and then BAM, there it was. You say that Google Reader needs a reply to shared, and BAM, there it is.


shhh. don't say anything incriminating. these conversations are being monitored, so it is of the utmost importance that you do not mentioned the meth lab in the basement in which we are cooking and selling drugs in order to make money to invest in the illegal arms trade so that we can procure WMDs which we plan to use to assassinate the entire US senate which is the last step in our plan to take over the world which began with us causing the stock market crash!

It honestly took me 5 minutes to come up with all of that, but it was so worth it.
I wish I could tell you that we reserved this level of senseless stupidity for the internet, but I can't. Most of our conversations are like this.

The other day we had a delightful conversation about porno titles. The title 'Her Majesty's Secret Cervix' came up. I, naturally, asked [livejournal.com profile] shenniefish where her majesty keeps her secret cervix. After she informed me that she didn't know, we parted ways. Later that evening this email conversation took place:

I asked my dad where her majesty keeps her secret cervix and he said "in her secret knickers."

[livejournal.com profile] shenniefish :
Haha, win.

Does that mean she wears two pairs of knickers -- one secret, and one not-secret?

Is this treason?

Well, we don't know if she's wearing her secret knickers. She may be keeping them in a vault with the family jewels (see what I did there?). And we have no way of know if she wears non-secret knickers or not; she may be going commando

Anyway... I just realised that I probably should have asked [livejournal.com profile] shenniefish 's permission before I posted these.
On that note, this is a post-dated message for 19:25 on 25/3/2009:
[livejournal.com profile] shenniefish , I have the intention of posting some of our personal email conversations on my LJ. If this is not okay, please let me know before 12:20am on 27/3/2009.

Slugs and bananas... Banana slugs?

This is the conversation I had with my friends in class today.

E: My house is so boring It's in the middle of nowhere. There isn't even anywhere you can go get something to eat.
T: Where can you go to eat at my house? Unless you want to catch yabbies... or eat slugs.
Me: T, you live on a banana farm and you're gonna eat slugs.
T: Oh, yeah. Shit!
Much laughter ensued. E hadn't followed the conversation and was very confused, which made it even funnier.

Guess you had to be there, but it was one of the funniest conversations I've had in quite a while.
It was just as funny as when I accidentally told[livejournal.com profile] shenniefish to milk me, instead of pour me some milk. My ribs hurt so much after that laughing fit.

Gabe is one of the smartest people I have ever met. He's a paranoid conspiracy theorist, but brilliant nonetheless.
Yet this is the conversation currently taking place in my house:

Gabe: How is it? The word tomato has Tom in it.
Tom: And Mato.
Gabe: Yeah, let's got ToMato's house.
Gabe: Asparagus has Gus in it.
Tom: Leek has Lee in it.
Gabe: Broadbean has b-ROARRRR-dbean
Tom: Artichoke has Aaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrr-tichoke.
Gabe: It's Aaaarrr, to choke.

My friends are all brilliant

The other day I received a phone call from a very excited friend of mine. Here is a reconstruction. I have changed my friends' names for the sake of anonymity. They will thus be referred to as Lady C and Little Miss A.
Her: Oh my god, hey. guess where  we are? You'll never get it.
Me: There isn't much point in me guessing then is there?
Her: come on, guess.
Me: um... church?
Her: not even close.
Me: volunteering with sick old people?
Her: eww. No.
Me: You're right, I'll never get it. I give up.
Her: we're at the hospital.
Me: what? you said I'd never guess. That would have been at the top of my list. That's definately cheating.
Her: Are you going to ask what we're doing at the hospital?
Me: what? oh, yeah. right. what are you doing at the hospital?
Her: Lady C is having her stomach pumped.
Me: You're surprised by this?
Her: She drank a lava lamp!
Me: That's stupid. You can't drink a lamp.
Her: No. The stuff in the lamp. The purple stuff.
Me: Oh... That IS stupid... Why?
Her: Little Miss A bet her that she wouldn't.
Me: Oh, I see... well... what did it taste like?
Her: she says "purple death."
Me: uh-ha.
Her: Yeah. Who knew? Oh, I've gotta go, she's coming out.
Me: yeah, okay. Send her my love.
Her: will do.
Me: Hey, what did she win?
Her: huh?
Me: you said it was a bet. what did she win?
Her: Oh, a piece of string and a paper clip.
Me: Oh, naturally...

so there you go. One of my best friends in the whole world ingested the contents (she drank the entire thing, by the way) of a lava lamp for a piece of string and a paper clip. I would love to tell you that this was an isolated incident and that none of my friends had ever done anything that stupid before, but alas I cannot...
Another of my friends recently pointed out the fact that the lamp would've had to have been heated up in order for Lady C to have ingested the wax. I haven't yet had a chance to investigate this
