HOBBITSES!  
So... I may be kind of ridiculously excited about the fact that after lunch today I am heading down to the Hobbit red carpet.

I feel a little bit disorientated, like, I’m excited about Martin Freeman because of Sherlock, I’m excited about Elijah Wood because of LOTR, but I know next to nothing about all the dwarves and stuff. I’m off to see a fandom that I don’t have yet but probably will within the next few months!

Anyway, no idea if I’ll get anywhere near the red carpet by then, apparently a lot of people camped out overnight. I’ll post pics if I get any though!

Wee!

Masterplan and Road trip!  
This entry is in two parts. The first being from Sunday, which I wrote but didn't post, the second being from today.

Part One: Secret Masterplan 2012 - Day 001

Achieved so far:

- Made Masterplan. (It's secret)

...That's about it.

But it's a plan! A secret one that I will be secretly squirreling away at for hopefully the whole year.

Like a boss.

A squirrel Boss.

I got all the nuts.

So, my New Year's Eve involved a birthday party as per usual. We had a teddy bears' picnic! The weather was average so we didn't really picnic, but we did do three-legged races with our teddies, an egg and spoon race with out teddies, and a egg + spoon + three-legged + teddies race as well, which was fun, and my mother cheated her ass off! (Which is funnier if you know her because she's so Good and Kind a lot of people think she should be nominated for sainthood.

I've had my brother and his girlfriend staying with me since Christmas, which has been great but we;re all SO TIRED I think today is going to consist of what we like to refer to in these parts as SBA - Sweet Bugger All. At last! I've warned all parties that if they want to see me they'll have to approach me at my station in bed. I won't be moving until starvation becomes a concern. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone will come and 'force' feed me out of fear for my general wellbeing.

How was everyone else's New Year? Do tell.

Love love.

Part Two: Secret Masterplan 2012 - Day 002

Firstly, I want to assure everyone that force-feeding was not required, my brother simply made pancakes and I immediately got out of bed. That was at about 3pm though so it wasn't a crime to summon me at that stage. Also, I managed to read the entirety of Green Rider, by Kirsten Britan, (which if you like fantasy and haven't read it before, I recommend thoroughly) which I'd been given / chose for my birthday.

Secondly, this is Persephone and Hogsworth.



They are my awesome birthday presents from my flatmates who are accompanying me on my ROAD TRIP! I am driving off on an epic adventure tomorrow at 7am. I take the ferry across Cook Straight at midday tomorrow, stay with my brother in Wellington then move on to Taupo the day after to stay with my Dad. After that I will either have AVENTURS or I will curl up in Dad's spare room and read books and write and not move much at all other than that for a week. We'll see. Anyway, hopefully I will post some pics as I go. Anyway. I gotta go to bed so that I can drive across the country tomorrow! Woo!
