Good morning all!
It's bright an early on Wednesday morning and I didn't sleep at all last night. A friend and I sat up all through the dark, chatting and watching "Sleeping Beauty". There's something ever so whimsical about being awake as the sun rises, and how quickly it happens. One moment we were whispering to black masses in complete darkness and the next we were speaking in normal tones surrounded by the fully announced morning sunlight.

The Earth is a wonderful and ever changing place.

My Christmas was wonderful and filled with: family, friends, speeches, presents, moose juice, turkey, vouchers, pavlova, trees, decorations, introductions, anecdotes, chocolates, photos, stockings, laughter, a very pretty dress, shopping, the joy of giving, music, dancing, mince tarts, anticipation and love.

How was yours?

Sabine and Seli gave me the "Your Blog is Over the Top" award. Thank you Sabine! The particularly great thing about this award is that all I have to do is link it on to five more deserving bloggers. Easy. I think I just inadvertently won the Lazy Blogger Award. Maybe I should create one...nah, can't be bothered (Ahaha geddit?).

So, I'd like to link this along to the following fab bloggers:

Abracadabra, Wow!
I like boys who make me think and girls who make me laugh.
I like summer, the holidays and all things Christmas.
I like feeling like I've achieved something.
I like discovering new music.
I like dancing like an idiot.
I like jumping on my trampoline on warm, sunny days.
I love being with family and friends.
Today I am buying a new pair of bathers.
In some ways, I love everything. Its less, its less of a thing to like, its less distinct, its less particular. I like things that I like but I love everything. There’s more choice in like. Cos even the worst things have things to love in them.
I don’t know what you mean about things I hate.
I hate upsetting people, without realising it.
I hate getting upset for a silly reason, then feeling bad about it, but being unable to stop either feeling.
I hate not being liked by someone, just because.
I hate not being able to sleep.
I hate being bored.
I hate not having the Internet for a week but in a way, I appreciate it lots now.
I hate being hungry, but nowhere near food.
I hate being wrong, but for some reason, too stubborn to admit it.
I hate this, wow. . .Sorry.

Harry Potter Pick Up Lines...

You know you're a true Harry Potter nerd when you find Harry Potter pick up lines funny. Pick up lines like these:
Hagrid's not the only giant on campus, if you know what I mean.
Are you using the Confundus charm or are you just naturally mind blowing? I've been whomping my willow thinking about you.

I'd like to get my basilisk into your chamber of secrets.
One night with me and they'll be calling you MOANING Myrtle.

Wait, what am I talking about? Who could not find those funny?

A Simple Twist of Fate...

The most lovely thing happened yesterday. I was catching the tram home from my drama Christmas party, and I remembered about halfway through the journey that I hadn't bought a ticket, so I went over to the machine. As I was pressing the buttons for a ticket I heard someone say "Excuse me". I turned around and there was a man looking at me, standing in front of the door. he asked me if I was buying a two hour and I said I was, so he passed his ticket to me.
"Have mine," he said, "I'm getting off here."
I thought it was so nice of him. Obviously he wasn't going very far out of his way, but it wouldn't occur to me to do something like that. It's funny, really. I spent my morning with my friends and my evening at a party with other friends, but the kindness of a stranger made my day. It reminded me that the world really is a friendly, wonderful place. From now on, I'm going to try and make small kind gestures, to remind others of it too.

There's No Denying Clouds Are Awesome...

There's something so wonderful about clouds.
They seem so impossible to me.
So beautiful and so simple.
Fluffy, white and delicate.
An other-worldly, visual escape.
