Fun things to do on the holidays when you are majorly bored:

1. Get all your pencil cases from previous years, take out the stationery and make a rainbow.

2. Take the aforementioned stationery and very anal-retentively organise it in a drawer.
It goes left to right, top row then bottom: pencils, whiteout, textas, markers, windups, crayons, ball point pens, gel pens, tape, glue, sharpeners, hole punchers, staplers, fineliners, erasers, coloured pens.

3. Find a pencil case with a shape you like and refurbish it with scraps your mother left over from fixing a dress.

This is the blue brick pencil case I used this year covered in black and white flower patterned fabric. I did the bottom in a shiny black fabric.

4. Organise your books by colour in the middle of the night because you can't sleep.

5. Make your little sister do silly poses and take pictures of it.

Went to Wooldridges to get my text books today, and they didn't have 4 of them so had to pay an extra bloody $8 to get them delivered. (Maths 3D, Physics something, 2 chem books)
Also managed to buy 4 extra books under the pretence of "I need them for Lit."

Going stationery shopping tomorrow! ♥

Cutting of ties.



I am going to be hell to deal with the week before April 13 2010.


postscript. Was browsing the Wooldridges site for books that I can scam my parents into buying when I saw "The Wife of Martin Guerre."
Couldn't figure out for the life of me why it was familiar until I read the synopsis.
The first half of the plot on Wiki actually sounds quite interesting.

Going to the supermarket.

Life is currently a continuous cycle of eating, watch TV, hide from parents, midday nap, Lego, more TV, reading, more eating, more TV, more eating.

Anyway, am on my healthy eating kick again.
Went to Coles yesterday and purchased ~1kg of pears for $3.99 and 4 packs of Yoplait Creamy Lite Fruit Salad Yoghurt priced at $2.69 each but on special with buy one get one free.
Went through lovely Caity's checkout and was pleasantly surprised when I found the pears to be $1.99 instead of $3.99 (me(secretly)thinks that Caity made an awesome mistake. =D)
So I paid for my stuff and went back to get more pairs, with $12.15 in change.
REALLY didn't wanna break the tenner, so I stood there for a bit trying to figure out how many pears I could get with $2.15 and came up with around 1.075kg. xD
Stood there and selected pears and weighed them and then had to go back and pick slightly smaller pears and weigh them and then pick slightly smaller pears and weigh them.
Went back to the checkout and regaled Caity with tales of my fruit themed maths-escapades.

Scintillating, right?

I watched My Sister's Keeper yesterday.
Great even though it's quite different to the book, and made me cry a few times, although I did not like the ending.
Anyway, Abigail Breslin (♥) was good as was Sofia Vassilieva.
It really gave me more reasons to dislike Dakota Fanning, who didn't do the role because she didn't want to shave her head.
My sister thinks I'm taking it too personally, but I'm really not.
I mean, yeah, okay, she probably needs her hair for the other roles she's in all the time, but it still makes me think less of her.
