My week, briefly:
Monday: did chores, including the supermarket, and getting more power for the flat, and reading for classes and uploading pictures. I also made venison burgers, which I am quite proud of.
Tuesday: Had classes and saw Teeth at Regent. It was good! Had Māori Language, which is always cool.
Wednesday: Watched an interesting video in Anthropology of Health about a woman who had this weight loss program to turn to God instead of food. Finished my first piece in Bone Carving, for Jeff, and got a good way through the one I'm doing for my mom. Pretty awesome. I feel pretty accomplished in that respect. I rushed to Regent to see The Wave after bone carving. It was fairly good. Went to Velvet Burger afterwards, yum.
Thursday: Had classes, then had to rush dinner to make a Speight's Brewery tour. It, too, was $14, much like Cadbury is. However, it was a much more interesting tour! They actually taught us how the beer-making process works, and had interesting anecdotes (like they make an extra 50,000 litres for Orientation Week!). Afterwards you had 20 minutes to taste beer, and could have as much as you wanted. My friends took the opportunity to drink as much as they possibly could in that amount of time, to 'get their money's worth' but I just sampled everything and discovered that adding lemonade (aka lemon italian soda, more or less) to beer makes it good. Then I went with Karin, Tex, and Gavin to Jenn's party which was Olympic themed but didn't end up being as all-out Olympics style as we imagined. I went to the Bowler after that with Brianna, Kate, Helen, and Amber, and we listened to a live band and then danced when the others showed up, but Brianna and I left pretty early.
Friday: The weather is terrible (unlike yesterday which was beautiful and warm). It's sleeting/hailing and cold. I went out for toilet paper, which we have not had in our flat for several days. I went into Glasson's which was a mistake because then I wanted to buy everything in there, they have such cute clothes. I'm looking for a cute dress or skirt, but not having luck because I'm looking to pay, you know, $20, and I'm finding stuff for about $50. Time to hit the opshops, I guess. I plan to see The Escapist at 8:30 at Regent (my last film festival movie).
Tomorrow I may be going to the farmer's market, and will definitely be going to Carisbrook for a rugby match. It's Dunedin vs. Canterbury. I guess our local team is the Highlanders? Not sure what level they are. Sunday: who knows? Somewhere with Amy, perhaps.
