I haven't been to see a movie for ages (I think the last one I saw was transformers), so when I realised that Indiana Jones was coming out, I prodded the housemates into going to see it at La premiere Chadstone (hurray for tight arse tuesdays! 20$ for a ticket and all you can eat popcorn and drinks!!!)
The movie started off fantastic - Harrison Ford is hilarious as an ageing Indi, and Shia LeBeouf's grease-monkey antics make him a great side kick to Indi's rugged act. Of course, like any movie which George Lucas has a hand in writing, there were several wtf bits where the action was fantastic, but the stunts more than made up for this. Overall, a rollicking good time of a movie, although I'm not sure I would have gone to see it at the movies had I the benefit of hindsight.
Meanwhile, in other things, I've been crazy busy at work. I literally have had no life, and have been living in jeans and trackydaks (gasp!) hence the lack of fash updates.
Is anyone else getting excited about 5 June 2008?
No idea what I'm talking about? Where have you been living?

man, I just had the worst day ever. Started a western (my first have just watched one before), got up to loading the samples before realising they were too concentrated and I hadn't boiled them with bmercap , had to go back and figure out dilutions, stared at the numbers for 15minutes not really seeing anything before my supervisor rescued me. Then had a mini breakdown when he asked me if everything was alright (my mum visited for a week last week from overseas, just left on sat, my dad had a head on collision on his motorbike, being stressed out trying to get paper out before our competition scoops out) and dropped my lab book and ran out needing a coffee. Western was ok after that, but then started getting worried about my project being taken over by my 2nd supervisor and his team because mine is part of his overall area, and is the current focus of my lab director (ie she wants results asap and doesn't care how) so talked to both supervisors about my fears (they calmed me down, saying that once this first paper was out, I would be going in a very different direction to 2nd supervisor, and will not be in trouble of being downgraded to masters/kicked out because uni thinks im not doing enough). To top it all off, I went to the bathroom around 4 (still hadn't had lunch), just as I was about to sit down, I had a plop - the white gold pendant that mum gave me for my 21st had just fallen into the toilet Luckily there was another lady in the toilet - set her to guard it and went off to get gloves and disinfectant
shitty day. ended up getting quite a bit of work done after everyone left for home though, and am still going great guns (just got 2 pages of lit review done, yay, considering I'm only 3 months into the phd)
is it really weird that i still love science/phding
Ps; sorry for the little rant/essay. I just needed to get it out
Had my graduation on thursday, yay, we got to wear a hat. Unfortunately, I didn't get to take a pic with the fabulous Mousie, although I caught up with her at the Post-graduation drinks on Saturday (LMAO at her saying she has no fash sense). TGIF have the most awesome potato skins (drool) and massive cocktails! I can't believe I've never been before.
outfit from saturday:
