Apparently the the Universe is realigning itself in an Alexandra-friendly configuration.
1. My birthday is on 7th August. Which is a THURSDAY. It is hard to get into a party mood on a Thursday. And the following Saturday (which would be the logical Jour Du Partay) I have two ceremonies to run. Blergh. Which leaves me a Sunday which means I will be doing an Afternoon Tea at Elley's. Which will still be fun, but not, you know, a Partay.
I saw that Vampire Weekend are coming to Melbourne! On the 6th of August! Which is the day before my birthday! And I got a ticket! Which means I can go out on a Wednesday night and have a really good reason to dance and drink and have a Jolly Good Time and see in my birthday with a drink in my hand! (Or feeling ill at the very thought. Whichever. i'm good.)
But then x 2:
I now have a reason to go to Vodka, Borscht and Tears on a Thursday night - the actual real birthday evening. Plus hair of the dog. Plus getting the Partaying/Drinking/Squeeing Loudly in Public thing out of my system before my parental units (and hopefully sister and niece) arrive for the rather more sedate afternoon tea on the Sunday afternoon.
2. My house is a god-awful mess. It is impossible to know where to start.
I did some dishes. In a, you know, not-starting-anything-huge-in-fact-not-looking-too-hard-at-what-I-was-doing in between chatting with Shiv and voraciously reading fanfic and ignoring the television. My kitchen is suddenly back from the brink of Science Experiment status. Ha!
3. Kwan at the coffee place makes crap coffee
Nah, Universal Realignment does not apparently cover Kwan's chronic daily overheating and roughing-up of my latte. It's like he has a special anti-talent.
4. There are no hot boys at my gym
There was one tonight who was Mr Chest and Arms and Shoulders and was pale and interesting and had wire-rimmed glasses on, people. Yowza! I had to make sure I was studying the display of my cross-trainer whenever he looked up from doing the seated row with the arms and the chest and the....ooooo. Excuse me for a moment.
