Greet the Dawn

Party - Trash included. Laura's party was on friday, and it was grand. I was dressed to the trashy-nines, and damn proud of it. I also acted as matcha_pocky's safety monkey, and I might just point out that as a safety monket, I rock!!! Fear my macheavelian schemes. Anyway, it was a grand time, and I must say that I like the neighbours. They're cool. I also took a number of highly suspect photos, but in the cold light of day I think I'll probably keep them to myself.

Or, you know, sell them to the highest bidder. :) I am the mastah of panty-shots.

There were only two downsides to the night. One, someone was very lucky I was in a mellow mood that evening, otherwise I would have caused a scene. 'Nuff said. Two, I am on antibiotics. I read the little warning leaflet which came with the antibiotics and, as a scientist, determined that if I were to take my second ab at lunchtime, not dinner, I should be right as rain for some drinkies.


Note to self; when on a high dosage of amoxicillin, for the love of god don't even attempt moderate drinking. I was very ill on saturday, which was very odd because I didn't drink enough to warrent being that sick. Maybe my years of wild hedonism have finally caught up to me, and my poor liver has given up. We shall see.

And to the people concerned (you know who you are), you're welcome. :)

Romance - Trash included. I finished the trashy romance novel I started reading in the hospital on saturday, while on the recovery. This has, unfortunately, revived my love of the romance novel. Fortunately, I have a whole bunch of unread trashy romance from the last time I was consumed by this madness, so I don't have to waste any more money on this tripe for the time being.

And speaking of tripe, I have started up again with my god-awful-fan-fiction-thing-I-am-such-a-tragic-nerd whatzit I started a long time ago, involving an NPC from my own DnD game. How pathetic is that? In any case, I think my lack of interest in it is the current lack of the main character having sex. I seek to remedy this shortly. Because, you know, sex sells.

Eurovision - Trashy!! I honestly don't know how I survived life without Eurovision. It was fantastic, with gold glitter-smothered cleavage as far as the eye could see. Drums were definately the go this year. I was a little disappointed that they put all the wacky entries at the start and the bland entries at the end this year - hopefully next year they will swap the order around. And what was with he departure from the tried and true, "Hello, this is (insert country name here) calling"?! That was the best bit! Anyway, while I am a little diappointed that carbon-copy-Turkey-woman from Greece won this year, I am simply joyous that the blandness twins from Latvia didn't win.

The countries I would have prefered as winners were;

The Ukraine - Ruslana, because she was better than any of the contestants. Let's face it, she was weilding a flame-thrower; how could anyone else compete?! That and they got Victor Uchenko, in all his (as rein_zero put it) face melted glory, to present a special prize.

Sweden - with the cute, leather-clad guy with the sexy back-up singers, who were totally robbed.
Serbia and Montenegro - How could you not love the Serbian boy band?! They wanted it more than anybody else there. They were also totally robbed.
Norway - with the Aerosmith tribute.
Maldova - with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers tribute.
The country who put forward the monstrosity that was the pink baby-doll dress clad trio, Feminem. EDIT: Bosnia!
Malta - the woman was large, proud, had a decent voice, could have devoured her opponents, and was wearing a truly ugly dress. What's not to love?
Spain - I don't care what anybody else says, I swear I saw nipple on the chick in blue.

I've heard a rumour that there will be a 50th year special later this year?! I can only hope. In any case, I'll be off trying to nab a copy of the CD and the book sometime this year, because Eurovision is my new reason to live.

Anyway, see you next year in Athens.

i agree, greece was a carbon copy!!! i thought the UK was totally more interesting... but the ukrainian hiphop outfit were kick ass, i loved moldova's granny drummer rock, and i especically enjoyed denmark for some tragic reason hahaha... he reminded me of ronan keating.

terry wogan was totally on fire, calling the presenters SHRIEK and YUCHENKO haha. and those boxer bros who started and called an end to the voting.. best acting ever!

i fell asleep during the voting tally, i did miss the THIS IS AUSTRIA calling etc!

i have a retrospect book my friend won from the website, its about the history or eurovision... i need to find it and reread it! the dvd will be a must have...

ilove finding out secret eurovision watchers. u know, u start discussing it to disbelieving big brother watchers, and a small voice will pipe up with "...so, did switzerland get thru..." heeh...

ahh yes, bring on athens!

I was a little disappointed with Eurovision this year. There was less interesting trash and more samey pop, although entries like Moldova and Norway restored my faith. Terry Wogan is awful. I really preferred Des last year. He's kind of disappeared off the radar recently. What's happened to him?
And, you aren't the only one who loved the teacher from Denmark. I enjoyed the fact that his backup singers were men.
May. 23rd, 2005 12:42 am (UTC)
Oh, and yes, there willbe a 50th anniversary Eurotrash spectacular in Denmark in October (?) this year. Hopefully Celine Dion willbe too busy to attend.

I too loved the boxers who announced that "The woting is finnish-ed". Tee hee.
I was surprised that the Israelis didn't do better given the high Jessica Simpson look-alike quotient. But then Bosnia really outdid themselves in Barbie-ness!@! Did anyone else notice that the two flanking 'singers' really only sang when they had to do their one 'solo' line and that it was the same line everytime? I think the three brunettes who were doing 'backup' singing were really carrying that group (You know the giant skinny girl and the dwarf and the chubby one who wouldn't have looked so good in the shiny pink shorty dresses!).
May. 23rd, 2005 12:55 am (UTC)
ooh yeah the barbie singers! wat was with the girl having an ODD dress at the front? I could understand she could have been the main singer, but she was always on the side, making the group look lopsided... perhaps something spilt on her dress at the last minute? i thought they were the most worthy of the title 'eurotrash pornstar' but then, albania came close too! israeli lady was amazing looking, i loved terry's comment about her singers being clones.

May. 23rd, 2005 02:21 am (UTC)
:) I think the girl in the middle was *supposed* to wear it and just chucked a tanty at the last minute becuase she knew it would make her look ridiculous!
May. 23rd, 2005 03:12 am (UTC)
Ahhhh amoxycillin and alcohol...that explains how/why you got so drunk so quickly. You weren't drinking hard at all and I was kind of wondering...

And it was good to finally speak more than a few words to you in person.
May. 23rd, 2005 03:15 am (UTC)
It's funny, I didn't feel particularly *drunk*, just terribly amused by EVERYTHING. None of that drunken warm glow, or the tell-tale faint numbness of the lips to tell me, you know, I'd had enough. And I didn't really drink that much besides, maybe 5 standard drinks? In the space of a good few hours?

Ah well, I've learned my lesson in any case.

So, was I as scintillating in person as I am on lj? :P
May. 23rd, 2005 03:40 am (UTC)
Most people are different in real life to online.

Was good to finally meet the real life "you".

Sorry if I was a bit uncommunicative; I was feeling quite antisocial at the beginning of the night. It'll probably show in the photos I took.

And it's good to know that what I thought was my great sense of humour was actually your drug interaction making it all funny :P
May. 23rd, 2005 04:19 am (UTC)
It wasn't *just* my crazy drug interaction issues. You're a funny guy. That, and when I get tipsy I'm quite likely to sit in the corner and giggle at things - it's just my way. :)
May. 23rd, 2005 04:32 am (UTC)
Ummm thanks.

If you are ever out at Clayton using the Monash or Csiro libraries, let me know and we can chat over a caffeinated beverage.
May. 23rd, 2005 04:36 am (UTC)
Clayton or Monash?! They're in the middle of nowhere! (Well, okay, not really...) I'm not likely to be out that way, but if I am, I'll give you a buzz.
May. 23rd, 2005 05:09 am (UTC)
Middle of nowhere? Absolutely.

Even public transport is leery of venturing here.

And I figure with you doing microbiology-type stuff and being on the Parkville Strip (although I know not where) I figure libraries are adequately covered. And I never thought I would see a disadvantage in online journals...(actually I can list a few)
May. 23rd, 2005 05:15 am (UTC)
I'm at the old dental hosptal, opposite the Royal Melbourne. At the end of the year, the department will be moving to the new detal hospital, behind the Royal Women's.

So I'm pretty much settled in Parkville. :)

I know a guy at the Dental School, Keith, originally an NMR Spectroscopist but now a Modeller like me. Bit of an eccentric sort but we used to get along great. Haven't seen him in about 5 or 6 years.

He used to great work designing peptides that would encourage mineral growth on damaged teeth.

Are you moving because of the Bio21 expansion?
(Deleted comment)
May. 23rd, 2005 06:18 am (UTC)
Yeah thats the fellow (you may notice I don't like using complete real names on LJ).

Carpark? They'd probably rake it in on that location. Last I heard (admittedly early 2000) was that a Bio21 building was going on that spot...but things change. Heck I remember visiting the animal houses at the Vet School and that's all glass and steel now.

It is a small world indeed. I knew his partner worked there but not in what capacity.
May. 23rd, 2005 06:20 am (UTC)
Point about names taken - I am much the same. That's why I took the name away. :)
May. 23rd, 2005 06:29 am (UTC)
No worries, I didn't notice - I usually just read and reply to comments via email.

Something I'm also careful of is publically forecasting my movements. Sounds like paranoia, but I can imagine the exchange if the house gets burgled:

"So sir, did anyone know you wouldn't be home?"

"Yes officer: I posted it on the internet."
May. 23rd, 2005 10:13 am (UTC)
Are the panty and bust shots also a tipsy thing or are they a regular thing?
May. 23rd, 2005 11:05 pm (UTC)
A little from column A, a little from column B.
May. 23rd, 2005 04:29 am (UTC)
And you know the DVD is out on June 19th! :-)
May. 23rd, 2005 01:07 pm (UTC)
Post the photos!!! Or at least send me the photos with me in them. ;p

Oh, and you still haven't sent me the photo from Halloween last year at Cameron, Matt and Tom's place. Lazy!! :p
May. 24th, 2005 03:37 am (UTC)

It's been sitting there for months now - I would have thought you'd have seen it by now.
May. 24th, 2005 03:40 am (UTC)

And me with my hand up a duck! JOY!!!
May. 24th, 2005 08:04 am (UTC)
Heh. You have a 'thing' for duck...
May. 24th, 2005 08:02 am (UTC)
No-one ever told me about the pictures being online... *sniff*
May. 26th, 2005 09:02 am (UTC)
If you are ever in need of trashy romances I have many,(sad I know), but you are more than welcome to borrow. My current trashy romance kick involves trashy vampire romances :)
