Amusing, Odd and Downright Silly

Gold lion's gonna tell me where the light is, ooh ooh, ooh ooh

So, I forgot about this blog, kinda.

Today is ANZAC Day, I feel like I should have baked ANZAC Bikkies or something, but instead, I went to the art gallery to see the Art of the 60's exhibition from the Tate gallery. It was really really good, lots of photos, paintings, sculptures, and lots of inspiration. Lots of stuff by Billy Apple that I liked. They were showing a movie which was why we decided to go in, it was Pink Floyd and the 14 hour technicolour show or something, was very 60's and trippy and psychedelic. Also, it had interviews with Mick Jagger, Michea; Caine, Julie Christie and David Hockney which were all pretty interesting. The one with Mick Jagger made me giggle, because not only did I go and see the Rolling Stones a little over a week ago, but apparently he's still in the country - maybe he was there, haha!
We met Aunty Tracey and Martin and baby Louie at the Gallery, and had lunch there as well. i had Berry Pancakes, oooh they were good!

After we got home, Maud came round to pick up the pig-food, and stayed for ages and watched TV with us - Sensing Murder is on on Tuesdays, I love it! Anyway Maud showed me how to do a purl stitch, since I'm such a novice that all I could do up until now was a plain knit stitch.

Just saw the video for Gold Lion by the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, that song reminds me of when I was little, and my Gran would say to me, "I can tell when you've been lying, because you have a big black lion on your tongue!" Of course what she was really saying was big black LINE, but its not like that makes any more sense anyway!

Tomorrow i have have have to study and write that essay, since ive supposed to have been doing it for about the last six weeks and its due in just over a week. EEK!
