alive with pleasure

so yesterday i nearly died on the motorway on my way to Brisbane to see a band. I was in the right hand lane and my car started shaking. so i moved over into the left lane and was going to take the next exit and stop - but as soon as i got in the left lane i lost control of my car and it went swerving everywhere...i finally managed to steer it off to the side of the road. it turns out that my back right-hand tyre practically ripped in half. needless to say i was in much shock. bad news is i missed the Xiu Xiu gig. good news is I'm alive.

Low is coming! I'm so incredibly excited.

i just don't seem to sleep anymore.

Broken Social Scene were amazing - I only wish my camera didn't die so I could take pictures...the only one i got was of the set list which i spotted during one of the support bands.

cough

ugh. it amuses me how i can somehow catch an evil cold during the hottest part of the year. i feel like i have swallowed several awkward objects. i started back at uni yesterday, and this semester should be good: photography, scriptwriting 2 & video production 2.

5 sleeps til Big Day Out. so very excited i am.

excuse me while i go have a coughing fit.

drink tea and forget the world's noises...

I keep forgeting I have an exam next Wednesday. In my head I'm on holidays.

Okkervil River was wonderful on Sunday night. They played Westfall and Red.

words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup....

what is the point in essays when I bullshit through them pretending i have the slightest clue what I'm on about only to forget all of it the next day? Now what is that testing?

It's going to be a long night.

i stole this from somewhere...

1. list your favourite line(s) from 20 of your favourite songs.
2. have your friends comment to see if they know the songs
3. when the song is guessed correctly, cross it out and put the name of the song next to it.

holidays make nikki crazy

Today I nearly had to pawn my watch to get petrol. Since when does petrol go up 14 cents in 4 hours?? I then used my precious fuel to go to JB Hifi, in search of a few cds, mainly the new death cab album (which i have, but don't HAVE)...even though I knew it would not be there, i had nothing to do and thought it would be a nice excuse to purchase more cds. They didn't have any of the six cds i was really looking for...and they were also reorganising the alternative section so everything was everywhere. Feeling distressed and confused, i left empty-handed (Which, if you knew me, you would be asking me to seek help to see what was wrong). Finally I went to the newsagency in search of the new issue of my much-loved magazine Frankie (which usually results in much of my time spent browsing newsagencies for around two weeks, cos I never remember when it comes out). Finally, today proved worthwhile when I spotted a lone issue on the top shelf. I was so happy that I didn't mind not winning on my two-dollar scratchie, which the old newsagency man made me purchase in order to reach the eftpos limit. holidays toy with my emotions.

p.s. last week i went to melbourne and shopped like lindsay lohan.

the good times are killing me...

Why does one drive to Brisbane and pretend to be happy to look at appealing items in shops and come home empty handed, when really one knows that it's one's bank account that will be empty (again) when one gets home...and one's hands will definitely not be empty?

bottom line is i'm living on peanuts until I'm paid again next monday.
