      mangrove

      ...that my wedding ring doesn't way too heavily on my finger.

      On the other hand, the food from Bali weighs heavily on the stomach. After a week of 22 people in Bali forgetting they can't drink water out of the tap, or drunkenly swallowing pool water (swim up bar ftw), you get used to talking about each others bowel movements as part of general conversation.

      Other than Bali belly, the whole wedding and holiday was great, although I have decided that jet skiing in a choppy ocean is not for me. Lots of cocktails in the pool, by the pool, in the foyer, in the room, by the sea and in the local restaurants. Pretty dress, flowers, shoes, hair, a nice tan. Dad got to have time off for the first time in years, and his first trip overseas.

      I even came back with a husband......

      Hope everyone is doing swimmingly!

      <3 and non-invasive gropage,

    • Well hello 2012

      My this year feels like it came sooner than it should have. It still feels like it was only yesterday that I was sitting in the university library, avoiding study and looking at RvB episodes when I decided to join the online community and see what my fellow machinima lovers were up to on the website. That was in September 2004.

      Reminiscing makes me miss Boganman.

      In the past year, I've changed jobs, moved house, planned a wedding, had 3 family members pass away, been to two weddings, been on 32 planes, 1 helicopter, taken my first actual holiday (ie, more than a week off voluntarily) since Enforcer came to visit in 2009, had a computer and a laptop blow up, stopped playing WoW, started and quit two other MMO's, started playing SWTOR, lost 20 pounds and wondered why everything was moving so fast.

      And I get married in 3 weeks. Holy Fuck >.<

      Oh, if anyone wants to take a spontaneous trip to Bali in 3 weeks, we have some seats paid for (there was a minimum guest number for the reception we wanted), but are empty at the wedding! *wink wink nudge nudge say-no-more say-no-more*

      Did you know in Bali it is illegal to NOT have a religion? Clint and I had to pick one (to get married, you both need to be of the same religion) before we could sign any paperwork. Unfortunately, agnostic or atheist don't count. You MUST choose between Buddhist, Muslim, Catholic or Anglican. So even if you're of a different religion to those listed, you must choose one *shakes head*

      Ugh. Its 9am, I've been at work for 1.5 hours and my mind is wandering (I've been writing this journal on and off since before 8am).

      Soooooo, whats your most vivid memory from 2011?

      Heart's and gropage

        I would like to grow old gracefully, just not yet. Pre-30 grey hair doesn't work for me.

        maybe, but then again, I do have to dye my hair to cover up greys these days, rather than just for the hell of it ;)

        You know, I was just thinking about how you were doing on the weekend (I cant remember what birthed that thought, but it did pop into my ditzy brain). Going well, work is busy, parents are getting older. Although signing in here and realising that it's been 10 years since I signed up to RT makes me feel kinda old....

        You know, I just read their drinks menu. I had no idea there was such a thing as an aussie cocktail. I'm going to ask my next bartender for a "the wallaby darned", and take a picture of their expression.

        Heh no. I speak to Sean, but only on irregular occasions. My fiance's name is Clint, who is a recent graduate with a bachelors of Archaeology, and is currently in the process of starting up his own business.

        Although right now, he's curled up on a mattress in our living room, coughing out his lungs with bronchitis.

      I've been away for a long time too, but I must admit I felt a little bad leaving people behind, and I must have missed people a bit too. smiley1.gif
