At the end of Year 12, I got a ticket to the artist that fuelled that first musical obsession of mine for my English teacher... in exchange she drove me to Melbourne for the show (I was living in a country town at that point)... we both missed the end-of-year-12 formal dinner for this.

I have a photo of her rocking out somewhere. I really should have put it in the yearbook...

The only movie i've seen lately that wasn't utter garbage was Sweeney Todd.
Sweeney Todd sounds stupid, though.

But so do most movies. The last movie I saw was Beowulf, only because I had a free ticket. Glad I didn't spend money on that. Before it? The Simpsons Movie, the best of the four movies I've seen in the last two years.

Oh, wait, I also saw The Golden Compass when I was on the Gold Coast, because my friends wanted to see it. Waste of time.

That's classic.

See, I missed the formal just because I thought it sounded stupid.

I can't believe this thread is now past 350. What are we on? Seriously, people. I've got shitloads of housework to do today, so I may be more sparse.

THIS WAS WHAT I WAS MEANT TO BE DOING WHILE YOU PEOPLE SUCKED ME INTO BEING A POSTWHORE.

I think just for that, Varitek needs to vacuum my place, tourist needs to clean the bathroom, and Ian needs to do my ironing. I'll clean the fish tank only because I don't trust you lot with my fish.

Still haven't seen the Simpsons film... And I want my $15/two hours back from seeing Hot Fuzz last year. I could have just watched Sean of the Dead again on DVD cheaper.

External hard drives are a lifesaver. I'd know, I have a torrents and new music habit.

We've been talking about paying him a visit for ages. I think it might have to be up to me to get our arses into gear to actually do it

I ... don't know either of those movies. Shows how much attention I pay. I briefly thought about seeing I Am Legend, then said "nah, I could spend the time listening to music for free".

Oh, I just straight away assumed you're ALREADY doing my dishes, since your location is "in the kitchen" and such.

Actually, thank fuck, I don't have many dishes to do. That's the one thing I took a break from postwhoring to do on Friday night, so there's just a bit from yesterday.

The funniest part is how all of us nearly died laughing at Father Ted.

Mrs Doyle: "What would you say to a cup, Father?"
Father Jack: "Feck off cup!"

Shit i need to get those DVDs back from my friend

About three days if you have a lossless bootlegs obsession.

Father Ted is so one of the best shows ever. But that, of course, is an ecumenical matter.

They're more or less identical. One has zombies, one has cops.
