20100215watch1

Had a sweet lil holiday with Megan + Nick Arr-Dev to katoomba. Checked out some sights, some shops & some dvds.
We went to an incredibly large antique shop/dealership in Blackheath. I was busy looking at lusting over these incredible expensive ($500 each) original van der rohe chairs while megan spotted this watch and showed me. I liked it; it was different but still beautiful, what with its delicate spinning face yet bold chamfered edges. I didn’t buy it because it wasn’t moving, although it was much more agreeable to my wallet than the chairs.
We went and had some afternoon tea, fed croissants to swallows and put too much sugar in coffee.
I decided to go back and have a look at that watch again, to check if it worked, and decided i’d probs buy it if it did. I asked and discovered it was one of those watches that need to be shaken to power them up. It ticked and held its time for a few minutes but the lady said I should probs get my watchmaker to check it over when i get back to syds. I said i don’t have one and she suggested i befriend one. I’ll put it on my to-do list.
Anyway, it seems to be going fine, so i’m pleased with my no-refunds risk purchase. It’s also mad fun to shake your wrist and listen to it whirring. I just hope i can’t over wind it…

So Many Activities

February 14, 2010

Things I have learnt recently…

-More and more people are joining stupid facebook groups, mostly about some common issue such as “kicking in your sleep” or “thinking about impossible scenarios before falling asleep.” This annoys me enough but the countless “i thought this only happened to me” wall posts border on intolerable. Seriously people, go poke yourselves in the eye.

-I don’t get scared in movies anymore. Blair Witch Project sucked badly and I was more frustrated at stupid annoying characters than scared.

-Second year uni doesn’t seem harder than first, in fact probably easier. My only instructions this week were to watch the news and more sport and maybe listen to the radio once or twice, I think that’s pretty manageable.

-I suck at swimming. My friends started doing laps at the local pool, so I felt obliged to give it a go. I don’t recall ever doing laps and the last time I went proper swimming was like when I learnt when I was five. I did 10 laps (500m) before feeling pretty ill and struggling not to throw up.

-Cocktail parties bring me bad luck. In the space of 15 minutes yesterday I managed to get called ‘Fall out Boy’ by some random douche at the bar, got whipped in the face by my own suspenders and had my glass of sangria spilt all over my trousers by some girl.

What have you learnt peeps?
