What a busy weekend. I went to CanberraBabylon ostensibly for JJJs Christmas party, but predominantly just to catch up with everyone. I got in on Thursday morning, and SirPhilipe was kind enough to pick me up at the airport. Every time I got to CBR, it is either lush and green and looks like something from the English countryside with fabulous gardens everywhere, or it looks like an Arizona dessert. No in between it seems – well it was really dry this trip, the entire place looks shrivelled and dry, and for reasons I dont understand, the dry and brown appearance of the place seems to throw off my sense of direction, and everywhere we drive I seem to lose my bearings :S Go figure!
Anyway the readers digest version is as follows – SirPhil and I went to lunch at Milk and Honey on Thurs followed by some shopping. Had lovely risotto dinner at his place Thurs night – thanks SirPhil and DrN for cooking! God I love seeing men getting dirty in the kitchen!!! Fri morning saw us going to Casino Royale which I think is now my fav Bond film ever. Fri afternoon hanging out with DrN, followed by Turkish dinner, then vodka martinis at the Hyatt cocktail lounge until the wee hours. Saturday, brekkie at Lesboa, pottering about at Woden and an introduction to BattleStar Galactica at Sir Philipe’s place, before going to party at JJJs place. Brekkie out AGAIN on Sunday morning with a bunch of guys from the party – Can’t believe how frequently these CBR people eat out!!! Quiet morning, then afternoon session of Shortbus with DrN and small gang for drinkies at Sir Philipes Sun night. Got up at 5am for stupid 6.30am flight back to Brisbane with DarkMan and am now feeling rather shattered.
All up I think I had about 3 hrs sleep each night, which when coupled with sleeping on unfamiliar dodgy mattresses, I am now officially having trouble with my comprehension skills! Yes, I see people’s mouths moving, and yes, I hear the words coming out, but am having real trouble here. Will have early night tonight I hope
