was it really worth it? [Mar. 29th, 2008|08:57 pm]

As Earth Hour draws to a close, I wonder how many tons of carbon were truly saved, as there were many people using candles for light...

A Challenge for myself [Mar. 19th, 2008|06:20 pm]
Alison or Alla - whatever you know me as
Ok, I keep procrastinating from my uni work, so I have decided to make it a little more productive than just wander the internet, not looking at anything in particular. My challenge to myself is to write 500 words per day on a story of my choice, and to post it here for people to read. I will keep posting even if no-one comments on my posts, but comments are always welcome, both the 'more more more' kind and constructive criticism. These story snippets will be posted over at allastales.Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with it. If I don't, bug me :p

There may be some overlap of stories, as I notice that I also have parts of two different drafts of Benaedin's Promise sitting on there already. Bear with me when this happens - or tell me if you preferred one version over the other or something :).

Enjoy!

doji_arekyushu and I have just conqured two mountain ranges and national parks. We're currently very sore, but the views that we got (once we got above the tree line) were well worth it. All I hope is that I don't have to carry my pack any further than a few hundred metres over the next couple of days. Holiday is going well, though. We are both slightly sunburnt at the moment, but *shrug*. I've taken soooo many photos :) More than I thought that I would take.

How are things back in Brisbane (or other places around the world)?

Can has less sore feet now please? [Feb. 19th, 2008|09:51 pm]
Alison or Alla - whatever you know me as

Am in Queenstown (yayayayyayayay). Having fun. Everything is very pretty. Many photos, but no time to upload/show any now, as I must go and rest sore feet. Heading to te anau tomorrow (eeearly), and then off to the Routeburn Track the day after that. Will try and write better post tomorrow. 

Sorry for disjointed sentences. I seem to be thinking in bullet points at the moment.(I blame crazy lightness - sun setting at 9pm isn't right...)

On looking for the nintendo choir clip on youtube, I thought I would go exploring a little more through the a capella clips on you tube, and these are some things that I came across

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd
 

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

The Seeker: The Dark is Rising [Jan. 8th, 2008|06:13 am]

Ok, I have just finished watching this, and I have two things to ask. 1) WTF?! 2) Did the guy who wrote the script even bother to read the books before he wrote it? He probably could have got by with just reading the poem that describes the whole plot and been more faithful to the story!
