today i got the keys to my new place - wheee!!
I also got a killer fridge for $80 and someone dragged it down two flights of stairs and into a van for me - whee!
at which point i spent many many hours cleaning and washing the walls - less whee!
my foot is very sore and puffy because of way too much glee on the weekend - both whee and unwhee!
but then i remember the fact that i got to see billy fucking corgan!!!!! and the world becomes golden.
I'm am seriously still so delirious about that fact.
also, i have enough free space, post measuring, that i can freely go to ikea and frenzy - whee!
more less whee and more whee - the boat overheated because it does and i only had enough time to pull into chadstone before it died but not get the extra 2kms home, but then there was 50% off at riot. I now have window boxes to play with (yeah, because i needed that right as i am throwing out most of what i own...).
Also, v festival on the weekend was great and i was in excellent company. It was undersold, so it was comfortable crowd-wise, and it was cloudy all day so again, comfy. hot hot heat, air and queens of the stone age got some love. But then, omg the loving for the fact that roisin murphy is so gorgeous, had crazy back up singers, slick moves and changed costumes between every song!!! latex pink gloves, insane modular heels, eccentric hats, nipples and crazy crazy futuristic glasses - it made me delirious with the cool - it cracked me for the rest of the day with laughter and crowd dancing. Then there was the fact that I got to see Duran Duran ask "Are You Hungry?" before a gala-screaming-along- rendition of HUNGRY LIKE THE WOLF!!! many awesome points in that fact.
Sadly, I had to break away because my heart was elsewhere.... for like a decade....
God. I think running frenzied towards a stage screaming the opening lines to Rocket!!!! (that beautiful couldn't be more perfect twinkling opening guitar) next to an awesome friend will go down as an infinite moment in my life. Just sheer joy, crying, screaming, singing, jumping, arm raised joy. So happy.
