I meant to do my work today...

Arg! Sorry about lack of posts, I've been desperately trying to finish off some bureaucratic crud asap. Sadly, the internet, and an extreme reluctance to finish the blasted stuff (innate stubbornness NOT helping!) has resulted in some pretty fun exploration of the internet. (blame etsy, ravelry and bloglines respectively). So the perfect tribute? This poem! (The first line, is, as far as I know, also the title. Very nifty!)

I meant to do my work today -
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.

And the wind went signing over the land
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand -
So what else could I do but laugh and go?

Richard Le Galliene

adios for now!

p.s. I went to a shindig up in the Q1 (also known as the Gold Coast's largest Phallic symbol) and took a stack of photos, that actually worked, you can see schoolies partying on the beach and everything! But later, always later!
