Five Quick Things

5 December 2007

First, my fiancee is away this week, meeting with her future employers and scoping out possible future neighbourhoods for us. It has been hard to adjust to sleeping alone. Fortunately, there are only a few more nights left. I’m wondering whether I should do a similar recce mission in January.

Second, while she’s been away I’ve had a chance to indulge my unrefined self — doing crazy, foolhardy things like leaving the dishes until the morning, and playing Guitar Hero III. The last few songs on “hard” are kicking my butt, but I’m enjoying the first few on “expert”. If you’ve got the Wii version and want to play some online multiplayer, drop a comment and we can exchange friend codes.

Third, I’m broke at the moment. I’ve had to dip into my savings a bit, which is not good — we’re going to need them to pay for long-haul removalists and a bond and furniture and all that jazz. I suck at money.

Fourth, it was Mum’s birthday on the weekend. I gave her some movie tickets and a book, but it turns out she already had the book. That’s always a bit of a bummer, but at least it means I picked something she was interested in. I just got there too late!

Fifth, Christmas is almost upon us: it’s time to start organising gifts. This is a problem, due to my aforementioned financial circumstances, so I am going to try to be a bit more creative this year — crafty, even.
