Waves from the point past the far end of the dog beach at Kingston Beach. There was pretty big swell that week. (pics only taken on phone and waves were hard to catch!) Posted by Picasa
And our other faces - with mouths. Suitable for drinking with straws. Not suitable for jelly shots. Posted by Picasa

Easter Time
Happy Easter! I've had a fun few days - jam packed full of eating, socialising and very sparse on uni work. Fine by me. Good Friday was largely spent eating breakfast with Tahnee and her Mum Peta, then making blockheads (Gumby's nemeses) for our Nemesis party which was Sunday night. We decided it could be quite fun to be a graffiti artist - spray cans are fun. Although - i did end up with some wierd spotty skin disease (paint!) on my hands and wrist!
Saturday night I went out to see Attic Grooves with Sarah P and then to the after party in Battery Point - sat around there, drank beer and danced the night away. Walking through Battery Pt at 3:30am is very quiet. Then up early on Sunday (9!) in time for church at 10. A quick stop at the Margate antique shop afterwards to poke around with Mum and Hamish then home for lunch... sleep, then out to Tahnee's house sitting house in Tinderbox for the Nemesis party. Sadly (and probably due to it being Easter Sunday) not many people came, but those that did had fun. And Mum and Hamish got to visit twice - first to say hi early on, but then I rang them again to come and rescue Holly's car with the subaru when she got it stuck on a drain. 2 jacks later (the first one was fully extended so we used a brick and a second jack), a plank under the front bumper where it was stuck on a rock, and the subaru with towball... and it was free again! And I got to be the one sitting next to the car jacking it up - but on the uphill side because the car looked too precarious to sit under!!
Other than that the Easter holidays have been spent watching movies (Earthsea, Mission Impossible) and Season 2 of Spooks.
I have also finally managed to cut out two print plates which with any luck I'll test out this afternoon. Not as much artyness as I might have got up to this holidays, but ah well. Not as much study either but exams are approaching so I should get into gear.
And now back to uni tomorrow...

Who Should Paint You: Gustav Klimt

Sensual and gorgeous, you would inspire an enchanting portrait..
With just enough classic appeal to be hung in any museum!

Well there you go.. I quite like Klimt!
Hello hello little blog. I haven't written much for a while. I put some pictures up recently which as I think is evident are from the superhero theme med cocktail party from last week. It seems like longer ago already, but it was a lot of fun. Perhaps there is a good reason for not writing much about it... there were a lot of people in varying costumes drinking lots of alcohol. That just about sums it up :)
Other than that, life has been filled up with uni, avoiding studying, helping with Submerge (margate christian church youth group for year 5-10), being at kids church, and the other odd social events. I've been to a few gigs - Bomba at republic a week ago were great, and last Friday I saw Tahnee's boyfriend Andrew's band 'Vinyl Pilgrims' which were also good fun - though Syntax is not the classiest venue I've been to!
Last wednesday was my aunt Katherine's book launch which was great. We unfortunately got there a little bit too late for the actual speach which apparently went well, but there were masses of people crowded into the Hobart Bookshop doing their best to enjoy the wine, cheese and company without knocking any books off shelves! Then we went out for dinner afterwards with Kath, Roger, Jon and Linden as well as Hilary, a Bicheno friend Mary (i think) and Jo. Sadly Jo can't eat seafood which is the main fare at Fish Frenzy. However it was a pleasant evening.

It was a freezing cold day today - but in a moment between heavy rain showers (and just before it began to hail) I got this! Posted by Picasa
