Just had a dream a tsunami happened in CHCH. I was in some...ocean-front school or something. I don't even know except my old boss Michael was there and he seemed to be in charge. I made mention of a wave that had been so big it had crashed into the building and reached our second floor windows. And then someone yelled "everyone look! In the direction of Hokitika!" And this massive wave was headed our way from behind, set to go right over us.

I yelled at Alison who suddenly appeared at this school (I have no idea what I was doing there...) to go higher so we raced up these stairs to the attic and held on while the wave crashed over us. Because apparently the building was made of adimantium or something as it was still standing while a bunch of other buildings were not. Then Jen, who appeared as well, decided to GET A BOAT that they had to PUT TOGETHER (it so would have leaked) that she and Alison were going to row to Hokitika to check on their family. The tsunami was still going, but they wouldn't listen when I was like "uhm. So I don't think that's the most brilliant idea you've ever had."

Then I went back down to the second floor where people were gathered, waiting for subsequent waves. People were calling loved ones, so why Jen and Ali didn't just use the phone is beyond me. Then Alina and I went outside as a wave crashed beside us. Because apparently we had to have silly ideas too. And we were like, "well, this sucks."

And then I woke up. Don't know what that was about, but I'm suitably disturbed!

PS I just tried to spell-check adimantium. Then I remembered it wouldn't be a real word, considering it's not a real mental. Wow, me. It wanted to change it to Byzantium. THE BUILDING MUST HAVE BEEN MADE FROM BYZANTIUM BECAUSE IT STAYED UP!

I sat around all day talking to people and not freaking out. I only left the room at one point to check my email but it wasn't because I wanted to be away from people at all. This is pretty impressive. It pleases me.

Had a great time watching Russell Brand and eating curry and drinking tea. People liked my Market Spice tea, YAY! I thoroughly enjoyed myself :D

I have been getting so many emails trying to get me to send them information and they will send me 450,000 USD or something ridiculous. One person claimed to be a bank manager but their email address was something@arsenalsupporter.co.uk

ARSENAL SUPPORTER?! At least TRY, dude. Don't send me a scam email from your footy fan email address and expect me to believe you. My stars and garters, people are stupid.

I do not go to parties, but last night Alison went to one and she texted me many times. It was an epic text conversation. She has recently turned predictive text on. This is a case for not doing so...

Herein lies a record of Alison's amazing drunk!texts. I was laughing all night long.

Today I sat in the sun and I waited for a bus. I know. Amazing story. Fricking riveting. But I had on my Sirius Black t-shirt, I was listening to The Cure (greatest hits) and eating a chocolate ice cream cone and it was warm and yet windy and it was just one of those really nice moments where everything is just...nice.

Ice cream. Sun. Robert Smith. And Sirius Black apparel.

Awesome.

And then we had roast chicken and mashed potatoes and Alina was here and we watched Easy A which was hilarious and Ariadne was cute and it was all terribly lovely!

Just so everyone is clear? My friends are nutters. Absolute possibly time-travelling nutters.

And I adore them :D

I went to bed at 10 last night and fell asleep watching Boosh. I should know better. The dreams are SO WEIRD. And not fun dreams involving Noel Fielding and his sparkly self. I think I was being chased by Yetis.

Or Rich Fulcher.

Dear Alina,

Please don't kill me for this. I am doing it because you are amazing. (And I love Hera. But I mostly love you.)

Love,

Lara!

SO this is a quote from the blog of one Hera Hjartardottir (http://www.herasings.com/blog which has lovely photos of Hera at Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer's artperformance wedding flashmob thing!) The amazing, Christhurch (via Iceland) singer/songwriter the LFoD likes to stalk.

And for those of you frustrated with the Icelandic interview... here is not a translation, but a documentary! by the super lovely Alina White, who contacted me a few months ago about doing this, it was her project for film school (- the school of fine arts, university of Canterbury.) She's also an awesome artist! Here it is in two parts :) xo

Alina's Amazing Documentary, complete with THE CUTEST HERA EVER )

And Ali informed us that the song at the end was her suggestion and her favourite. It's gorgeous and I WANT A RECORDING. Makebelieve Girl is close to my livejournal's title (it's artificial girl, but close enough).

HELLO, INTERNET WORLD, I MISSED YOU FOR SRS!

To be honest though, it was nice to just BE for a few days. Really nice. There were two days when I didn't touch a computer AT ALL. Two days I was driving and that leave twoish days when I spent a few hours on the computer writing each, since mostly in my down time I was reading a 300-page book. And I managed 11,500 words in only a few hours. Having no distractions = awesome.

And we saw a kiwi bird!! OMG CUTEST THING EVER IN THE WORLD!

But we are home now, and Ryan Reynolds is back at his home. He was SUCH a good car and we miss him. We had Ariadne-snuggles and internet-checking and I am talking to Ren <3 and soon there will be spaghetti.

Also? Charades are still hilarious when you are nearly thirty. Even the silly kid game ones (we wrote our own after the first night which were amazing) I was acting out Pooh Bear and they had the bear part. I acted out 'poo' because I am incredible, and Alison yelled out 'SHIT BEAR'! And they had red-nosed and when I mimed antlers, she yelled 'MOOSE' and it was, of course, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. ...you had to be there. But Alison is a unique and beautiful lady and there was much laughter.

AHahhahah shit bear. Good times.

There is a lot to be said when someone actually listens to you. It's nice to be heard.

What is also nice is Alina in a dress.

...that sounded creepy. But we were trying on clothes and... Anyway, she looked lovely! I tried on some of Leah's old clothes. A shirt with a sequiny EAGLETHING on it and a beanie. I looked SO hardcore, man. The beanie was TEAL. Because I be FO' REAL!

...that was hideous and I belong in a corner under a dunce cap.

Me: *singing Lady Gaga while bending over* "Hold me and love me-"
Ali: *complies, hugging me backwards*
Me: "AAAUUUGGHHHHHHHHH!!!"
Ali: "I was just doing what you told me!!"

Ali: "I gave you Alina's love the other day, right?"
Me: "No."
Ali: "... Alina sends her love."

Ali is a special one :D

Also? I am going to go to a Halloween party. Me. I am SO going. I am going to be brave. Watch me be brave.

I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!

I was feeling down today (LONG story) so I decided to do something constructive to take the feeling away (social work training, oy) so I wanted to make a post of all the photos of people and places and things that mean something to me. And when I started to plan it, I realised just how long it would be if I put everyone into it. And that made me feel so amazing, you have no idea...

I did it anyway deciding I would only use photos I have taken myself (or by my family since I wasn't at the reunion to take those and I didn't take the ones of me as a kid, but you get the point!) to cut down on spamming random Hugh Jackman pictures ;). Not everyone that should be here is including my friends in Australia. Woot, Peter, Laura and Ness, I have no (not blurry) photos of you!! And there are other friends who aren't on here, but be that as it may, here it is. Some of my happy things.

To me you are perfect )
