Here is what I have done so far. I feel pretty accomplished in most areas, and disappointed in one area.
I went on the tram car restaurant on Friday afternoon.
I ate some chicken liver pate (my dining partner was vegetarian except for chicken, so she had the capsicum pate)
Yesterday morning I went to the Children's Hospital to visit a friend and her son who is staying there, had breakfast at Maccas, then went to belly dancing.
After belly dancing I handed over $60 for this.
After that outing, I did two loads of washing, had a nap, had some food, and then wrote some comedy sketches that I will perform on TV. I can't believe I wrote that! That I am really doing it! I wrote some comedy sketches that I will perform on TV!
I got ready to go out to The Temper Trap. At this stage I was feeling really tired still, and had two major things to tick off my list.
I went for dinner at a Thai restaurant in Victoria Street. I don't know what it was called, but the food was pretty good.
That is a duck and lychee salad. It was seasoned with chilli and peanuts. I ate it wrapped in roti.
Then I drove to Festival Hall to see The Temper Trap.
This is the disappointing part.
It was cold. I was tired, I bought my ticket months ago so it wasn't like I was forking out the money last night. And the ticket had not been posted to me, so it didn't even feel like I was going. There were heaps of people out. I was going on my own, which I am usually quite happy to do. I couldn't find a park close by. I thought I should have got the train.
And then, I disappointed myself.
I gave up The Temper Trap to go to bed. I was in bed by 8.30 pm, watched some Secret Life of Us, and was asleep by 10.00pm. I know. They had sold out on the day I bought my ticket. I may never be able to get a $60 ticket to them again. But then, I had seen them in January, they were awesome but the setlist was very short. I heard them on the radio this morning and my throat choked up. I missed The Temper Trap gig :/
Anyhow, I slept well. I needed it. Today I have done some grocery shopping, eaten breakfast and read the newspapers, looked over some stuff for my thesis.
I have stared at this picture a lot.
And watched the You Tube video of the Rush premiere 30485 times. I am really happy with how it turned out and not so embarrassed at my over enthusiasm anymore.
I am about to get started on an article for DiVine, then cook dinner and watch Masterchef.
Can I have another weekend please?
