Cheery-a

Today was one of my days off uni. I started it by waking up at 5am hearing a knock at the door, I talked to my friend Jackson for half an hour on the couch out the front of my house, stole a few extra hours sleep, wrote a letter, tried to draw a self portrait for one of my classes, my pen ran out, I cleaned, called my sister, baked cookies, mopped the kitchen floor, played geetar, then went to watch the Socceroos match at our favourite pub and devoured honey king prawns (it just dawned on me the other day how lame the name 'Socceroos' is for our national team). A pretty average day really. I really don't have much to post except that I found this list and I thought I might attempt it over the next 30 days as an effort toward more consistent blogging. Of course, I don't do well with self imposed rules, so I may fail dismally after a day or two, but it could be fun. Do join in if you like;

So, today - my favourite song. I don't know anyone who can answer this question with one single perfectly crafted song, but I thought I'd pick one of my favourite songs by my favourite band and it would suffice. They don't exactly have film clips, but here is a good little clip of Why? playing 'The Hollows' on a rooftop. It sounded great when I saw them and the crowd joined in with the "cheery"s;



Today I received a letter and I wrote a letter;

It's kind of not Tuesday, anymore, though this photo was taken on Tuesday. Here are what my feet were doing on Tuesday (walking home from getting Thai). The other two sets of feet belong to Manneh and C;



Snooze time. Look at me go to bed before 1am! It's amazing!
