I'll be home for . . . Halloween? - Have Fedora, Will Travel

About I'll be home for . . . Halloween?

Previous Entry I'll be home for . . . Halloween? Sep. 6th, 2004 @ 03:20 pm Next Entry
I'm in Christchurch. Have been for a few days now. Not doing much, just existing, essentially. Trying to avoid spending money until I fly to Sydney on Thursday. Luckily, the hostel where I've settled myself has a truly massive video collection, so I'm doing OK.

It's odd to think that I'll be home in slightly over a month. And really, I think I'm about ready to go. I love New Zealand, seriously, and I'm going to be extremely sad to leave it behind. Just knowing that I'm leaving the South Island for good later this week brings me down. And of course I'm looking forward to Australia. And then the north of the North Island in the last week before my homecoming (homegoing?). But at the moment, I'm not doing anything- staying put and trying not to spend money and having already done all of the free things that interest me and are within walking distance. I'll be glad to be home, particularly to see all of the people that I've been missing. It'll be nice to have relationships again that are a bit more established than the one with "the german guy who has twice beat me at chess". Sure, I've made lots of friends while I've been here. And this is way cool, to be particularly eloquent about it, but because they are all new friendships, they of course can't yet be lasting friendships.

Point is, home=good. And I'll be there soon. Inasmuch as a month and 4 days is soon.

We watched some New Zealand antics today at your folks' place. You seemed to enjoy the zipline over the bridge. :)

Is it odd that I think it's odd that someone with whom I have only interacted via the internet has seen vacation videos of me and my parents? I think it's odd.

And I did enjoy it! Whee!

It is odd, sorry if it's uncomfortable. I was thinking that same thing as I was watching it: "Here's someone I've never met and I'm watching her vacation videos." Don't worry, though. Soon you will know what a Might Could sounds like, and how I make Erica laugh with the "drip noise."

I wouldn't say uncomfortable. I'd say . . . bemusing.

I am bemused.

See, he was at the house during Labor Day, and Darrell and Julie wanted to see New Zealand. So we plugged in the tape and we all watched it. Whee!

I'd think it'd be weirder if it'd been just Tim watching it. Even I would find that kinda bizarre.

Hee hee, drip noise. *giggles like mad*

Aha! All is clear to me now!

Well, except for the whole drip noise thing.

Speaking of that, Jacki's friend Mike can make it, too. He did so a couple of times yesterday, and I laughed. Of course. You've got competition!

Well, no.
