Byron and I are by ourselves in the house until the 15th of October as our parents and Kathryn are in China. Unfortunately there will be no wild parties, because we both work weekends, and we're the kind of people who like nothing better than a quiet night in, with a nice dinner and an early turn-in. However last night we had a fun night, had Brendan, Steve, Alana and Pat over for dinner, we did a roast pork and trimmings thing, it turned out pretty well for two people who can't really cook all that well. Also I was in bed by midnight, I like that. I'm still up tonight because I'm waiting for my hair to dry, but I'm this close to going to bed anyway. I worked tonight and I'm working tomorrow, so I need some sleep. I have hot tea to hopefully keep me awake a bit longer though. And a giant freddo, although I might save that for a real emergency.
Tonight I used Skype for the second time ever. I have a good friend/fren Julie, who lives in Texas, USA. She and I have been chatting on msn for more than a year. At first it was your standard tragic fan fare, what's your favourite album, what do you thinkt he lyrics here mean, that sort of thing, which is really interesting to discuss, but there's only so many times you can dissect a song. She and I chat a few times a week and now pretty much just talk about anything. Anyway, she mentioned recently that despite the fact that we've been chatting for more than a year, we don't know what the other person sounds like, so tonight I called her on Skype as a surprise. She answered the phone with 'ma? Is that you?' and I thought 'shit, I have the wrong number,' but it was 7:30am her time, and there's not many people who call at that hour. She has a higher voice than I expected, and apparently I have a lower voice than she expected, but it was great to finally hear each other.
anyway I'm really tired, and hardly know what I'm typing right now. I'm goign to finish my ta and go to bed.
