I knew I had something else to say... The Big Day Out is a one-day festival kind of thing, and past headliners have been Metallica, Rage Against the Machine and The White Stripes. It's never been my kind of thing (plus its in Auckland), but next years 'confirmed'/rumoured act is...Neil Young. WTF? I grew up on Neil Young, because Dad is a huge fan. But Dad thinks he's too old to go to the BDO, which sucks, because Dad always goes to see him when he comes to NZ.
The other rumour is Radiohead...I'd definitely go for Radiohead and Neil Young.

Yusssss!!!!!!!

So the plans are in place...Sydney baby!  Jono and I are planning on going 7-15 November, straight after exams.  It is so exciting, I haven't been to Sydney before, and I haven't been overseas in about 4 years.  There are some good priced flights at the moment, at the moment we are looking at Air NZ $444 return (including taxes). 
So obviously I will drag him around the tourist sights, and shops.  Actually, I don't think Jono will be allowed to do anything he wants :) haha.

I'm back in Napier for the next week and a half.  Mum gets back from Europe on Friday, so that will be very exciting - including duty free Vera Wang Princess perfume :) (oh, and it will be good to see mum again).

Nothing else is really exciting in my life.  I had 3 essays due in on Thursday (didn't happen), and I was pretty much a hermit for the last 2 weeks of term.  I hate 3rd year!

I want this...

I can get it discounted at work, but all our new stock doesn't arrive until after stocktake :(  I love working in a shop that actually gets to pick what they stock, and has reps come in - and that I can help chose the stock!

In other news, I have given up coke for Lent.  I've tried so many times, but this time it's fo' real.

I just finished watching the eviction of Jade on Celebrity Big Brother UK, man is that some crazy stuff.  If you haven't heard about it, watch this.  If you can understand her, that is.
I got a new job on Wednesday, which is good!  I'm going to be permanent part-time at Kirkcaldie and Stains, or Kirks for short.  A quick Google search will tell you it is "Wellington's most prestigious department store since 1863. Home to quality merchandise including many of the world's leading brands."  This store has a doorman!  I'm working in the jewellery and accessories department,but I don't start for another few weeks, after their sale.  I'm kind of apprehensive, but will see how it goes.  At least I get to stay working on Lambton Quay, which I wanted.
So I am going to head home to Napier (again!) for a few weeks. Mum and Dad leave for their 3 month tour of Europe on 2 February, so I'll go spend some time soaking up the sun with them.

Christmas!

can't take my mind off you

I had a nice Christmas.  I came home to Napier from Wellington on Christmas Eve after work.  Oh yeah, I quit the Sunglass Hut!  I am now unemployed, which is a weird feeling!  So I am just hanging around Napier for a while.  Mum and Dad have moved to a house beside the sea which is gorgeous!  It's too nice an afternoon to write a huge update but I uploaded some Christmas-y photos.  Oh yeah, and I have a boyfriend now...hmmm!  His name is Jono.

hold on now, your exit's here...
