Just some quick housekeeping notes:

  • I would like to send a very special shoutout to my Aunt Jean who sent a sweet Christmas card to our doorstep. Kelly would like to say “thank you!” for also addressing it to her. She felt honoured. Thanks, Jean! You da best.
  • And a special thanks to Grandma Ruth as well… I’m not sure if she’ll ever see this or not but I’m relying on extended family members *cough*Jean*cough* to show her that here I am! Saying THANK YOU! for the Christmas card as well and the present. I haven’t quite yet decided what to do with it, but I’m sure I’ll find something in Melbourne. I’ll be sure to send a picture your way.
  • To my lovely brother, Nathan: I am not bringing you back rocks from NZ. I’m worried enough as is about my weight restrictions because I have too many clothes, haha. I will promise to bring back memories. And maybe some pictures of LOTR-esque scenery.
  • Kelly may or may not make a special appearance on this blog to talk about the tattoo she got a couple days ago. She’s been very excited, and perhaps she is excited enough to actually blog? Wonders may never cease.
  • I have toyed with the idea of a tattoo commemorating the Australia trip but. I’m just not really a tattoo person. So rest easy, parents. My body has not yet been marked. And doubtful it will ever be. I live vicariously through others.
  • There have been a couple of exciting purchases in the last few days, namely theatre tickets! Hurrah! I’m going to be all cultural… ‘n stuffs. Kelly and I have bought tickets to see Wicked in Melbourne on Boxing Day. Very exciting; I’ve read the book and enjoyed it. And yes, I am aware the play is only loosely based on the book but still! It’s kind of like Broadway, right?
  • Kelly, Rachelle and I have also purchased tickets to see The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: All 37 plays in 97 minutes at the Syndey Opera House in January. I’ve been told by several people it is absolutely hilarious so I am also very much looking forward to that! A cultural education, I haz it.
  • Finally, I leave you with some awe-inpiring photos of what I will be doing this New Year’s Eve, which is namely: Kelly, Rachelle and I have managed to secure ourselves a spot on a friend’s boat so we are going to watch the world renown Sydney New Year’s Eve fireworks from the Sydney Harbour. I really wanted to write the second part of that sentence in caps BECAUSE I AM JUST SO EXCITED but it was a lot of words. BUT I AM EXCITED, OK!? 😀

To everyone reading, I leave in a couple days for my Outback trip and may not be able to update until afterwards. So have a safe and happy holidays and I hope all my northern hemisphere friends are enjoying the snow and cold… or maybe not! 😉
