I only just realised all my LJ friends make one of these every year. Shall do the same as an incentive to read more books and watch more movies!

I just wanted to quickly wish everyone of my lovely LJ friends a happy New Year. Hope you all get to something exciting on the night. Me? I'm going to be seeing the Shout Out Louds and Neon Indian at the Power House for No Years. Not gonna lie I'm pretty excited and I'm even stepping out in a black dress I never wear. Anyway have fun and stay safe. Luff you all very much and I look forward to getting more of a glimpse of your lives in 2011.

Happy Hottest 100 day/Australia Day to all my Australian friends. Today's festivities consist of a party at the beach with the countdown blasting, vodka and hopefully a nudie run (not performed by me). What's everyone else doing?

So right now I am back in Kingscliff with mum and Jayden. There's no way I'm celebrating Australia Day in a city away from the beach. The creek that runs through my town currently has a small pod of dolphins swimming around in it because they have a baby which is too afraid to swim back out into the ocean because of the shallowness of the creek. I'm thinking of swimming near them tomorrow to get a better look.

Aside from that I dragged Lydia to the comic book shop that I adore because she was looking for a few graphic novels and it just so happened that they were having their Friday Night Magic tournament and all my friends from Magic were there. So I entered the draft and played against two people and didn't lose. One win and one draw. They have me a prize and I also am a registered player which means I have a ranking. This weekend there is a pre release for the new set of cards being released so I'll be going to that. Fuck my life I am so lame. LOL.
