shopping!!!

went to merry hill this afternoon and bought things :) my may ball dress/outfit is now sorted. the plan was that lloyd and i did the cross-dressing thing and he'd wear the dress and i'd wear the tux. however, i have a sneaking suspicion that, while they may let me in, they probably won't let him in. and anyway, i saw the skirt today and i had to have it...

it's long and red and silk (the crinkly kind), longer at the back, and all gathered up and pretty. the top i've got to go with it is a size 8 (*ahem*) bustier type thing that holds absolutely everything in (unsurprisingly) and gives me, um, cleavage... and i mean in the sense that i looked down and actually thought 'where did they come from?' - which i'm sure is something they only do in films ;)

anyway...

that's that sorted. also got yet another suspender belt for da rocky, whenever it deigns to come back in any form...

went to HMV, which was a bad idea... came out of HMV with the following:

"shrek" soundtrack - am addicted to song above. lyrics coming shortly...
"whistle down the wind" original london recording - i have a copy that traci did for me, but i wanted the libretto and it was only a tenner...
"most haunted" DVD... i'm a geek. i apologise...
"bob and rose" entire series on DVD, having failed to tape it when UK gold repeated it.
"tipping the velvet" on video because mother hasn't seen it yet and despite everything that's wrong with it, it was vaguely entertaining...
"quills" on DVD. because i can screencap the prettiness of the insane abbé...

i must stop thinking in website layouts... unless, of course, i DO decide to go into web design as a career, in which case, it's probably a good thing ;)

um, what else...

ah! i now have my own digital camera exactly like my mother's, mainly because i already know how to use it, and also because it came to £70 instead of its usual £120 because it was returned, and didn't have a memory card in the box :) so now there'll probably be even more pictures... i'm going to be taking some on sunday of a pretty, derelict building near my dad's house...

i finally got through the level of the puzzle game that's been bugging me for days...

that's everything, i think... i'm going off to rip that rufus wainwright track now...

if you've seen the movie, it's the one sung in the background after shrek and princess fiona get separated, as she's awaiting her wedding and they're both sulking. that one. the lyrics are making me go "ooooh", for some reason...
