Cotton Wars - I want to see this!

"Four forces combine in voltron style to produce a unique installation of cotton based armies; hand crafted and hand sewn, this battle scene will dazzle the eye and upset your stomach."

I'd never heard of the Inflight Gallery in Hobart until I read about this exhibitition on my friend Jac's blog comments... but I think I'll track it down and go soon! I love all the quirky cat-rabbit and ghostpatrol creations. There are some at Small Rhino which i walked past today, but Jack (different to Jac!) wouldn't stop because he thinks it's too pretentious! But I am enjoying listeneing to music on my computer with new (to me) speakers because he got awesome ones for his 21st... I got the cast offs so I can't complain.

Anyway, made it through first week back. I feel exhuasted - there were a lot of lectures, and it's hard to adjust to focusing and taking notes. That and I somehow had things on every night... but Submerge, drinks for Annika's 22nd, Shakespeare's 'Taming of the Shrew' at botanical gardens, societies day followed by drinks at Knoppies for Jack's 21st, Bible Study and seeing Swedish band Peter Bjorn and John at republic were all good things.... and that doesn't include tonight! There is a party at a med friends house... I might make a short appearance before crashing with enough sleep to get up and survive Boot Camp tomorrow morning. Did I mention that insane thing? Well... strange idea... 7-8am three mornings a week of an otherwise friendly girl forcing me and some other crazy people to push ourselves to run faster, push up harder, squat lower, jump higher, etc etc. Not friendly. I missed thursday's sessions though because I had to be at the hospital early to visit the Catheter Lab. Much more interesting - I watched 2 angiograms. Very interesting - and i didn't feel TOO queezy watching blood come out when they first put it into the femoral artery (I guess you have to expect arteries to bleed if you put holes in them!).
