My weekend was fun, I got to hang out with Bridget Saturday arvo and evening (of course if I had any ability to a) be on time or b) navigate public transport than it would have been for longer which would have been even nicer.) And had a traditional drunkening in the park behind the Courthouse, which seems to happen every time I go to Sydney these days. It often seems to involve some sort of public urination. There was public urination. Sadly when we asked some random boys to pee for us they wouldn't!!! What Farbs!! Speaking of, I think I am going to reinstigate this word a lot more since it CANNOT be offensive to the queers. Unless they are offended that it germinates from Confederate reenactors which could be construed as racist. But I'll just argue it is all reenactors and therefore not racist specific. And it does not, in itself, allude to race even remotely.
Speaking of the queers. There is a mini drama going on at the moment in that one of the noobs is having trouble understanding the general perspective on consent and insists that it is the job of the touchee to inform the toucher if they are uncomfortable with being touched. It is weird because this particular noob tends to really annoy me, and I think what he is saying here is wrong, because I think consent is something where it is really acceptable to be overly cautious. But at the same time I'm noticing that a lot of people are really impatient and bad at explaining their point of view without being confrontational and, even though the dude shits me, I feel bad for him. I think there might have to be a talk this year about people putting forth their views in a more gentle, straight forward and easy to understand manner. It exhausts me. Having said that, this whole thing is making me rethink my "bitch" stance. I mean, I'm still gonna use it, but I think I will be more willing to not use it around those it particularly offends. I would like to have a conversation about it though ... argh in a non-efforty kind of way. SO MUCH DRAMA!!! But not really that much.
Yesterday I went to the mardi gras fair day. It was hot, crowded and stressful. I didn't have the best time. Then I came home, about four hours later than I wanted to cos I stayed too long and then missed my train because the FUCKER of a train official man-dude wouldn't stop the doors from closing which would have delayed them for all of about three seconds. Wanker. You know when it is really those three seconds. In fact as I was running down the stairs I had a "Sliding Doors" moment where this dude stepped in front of me instead of to the side and I was like, "You just cost me my train, arsehole" In my head. As I mentioned, not the BEST of moods yesterday.
Then I went to Gladiator which was a little stressful socially but there was really yummy food there!!! Like really yummy. There was this shepherd's pie, omg I am still craving it right now!!
Speaking of food, I plan to cook today. I'm gonna make a pizza, including the base, and put chunky dip on as a sauce with some (wilted) coriander and mushrooms and eggplant and vintage cheddar cheese. I think it will be yummy.
I really need to sort out enrollment for uni. I am afraid.
This morning I swam eight laps. Still can't do one full one of freestyle though. Tomorrow I'm aiming for ten. And at least one complete lap of freestyle.
That is all.
