Well, it’s all a bit surreal, really, having my first article published on Stuff. Re-reading it, I’m overwhelmed by how rambly it is, and of course, Stuff’s a slightly different audience to NZGamer, in the nicest possible way.
Had a real late night last night, so I’m going to try not to do the same again. Was a bit headachey today.
Things are really coming along in the house – all the wallpaper in the hallway has been stripped, and we sanded the walls down tonight. Father Jack’s room (nickname for the spare bedroom that had horribly stained wallpaper and ceiling, and smelled stale and weird) is going to be next, then we’ll get the firebox ready for its new gas fireplace that’ll be coming down from Taupo at some stage. Busy times.
Aside from that, I’ve been typing up some notes, trying to transfer emails and other documents over from the old laptop, and listening to a spot of music: Beiruit’s The Flying Club Cup, Tokyo Police Club’s A Lesson In Crime, and the ever-faithful Ennio Morricone’s The Best Of. Every time I hear the theme song from Cinema Paradiso I feel a bit weepy. In a good way.
Anyway, time to knock back the tea and collect a sleepy boyfriend for bed. Night.
