I'm still awake again

Hi! *waves* So bouncy today. :D Tried to write some Bianca fic, got as far as 2 lines short of a page. Couldn't squeeze any more out *sigh* I'm kinda disappointed in myself. I thought I could do better than that, but there's just nothing in there. So I'm sleeping out in the lounge room tonight *looks at mattress on the floor* I volunteered to be out here so my aunt could steal my room. I knew it was pointless anyone else being here cause I'm the one whose gonna be up all night. ;)

So Saturday was a fun little day. Woke up like a zillion times before 10am, but got myself up and ready to go to Helen's. First time I've been in her house, but OMG! I love the look of the houses down there, and when I walked into her place my jaw dropped. Even though the rooms were small, it looked like a mansion. It was the best house I've ever seen, and her brother Chris did all the work on it. He's got such a skill for this stuff - should be an interior designer. My mum and I followed them to Jocelyn's place to collect her and her 3 1/2 year old daughter Dana. I was thinking great opportunity for my Bianca fic since that's where I'm at with her at the moment too, so I thought I'd watch Dana closely and see if I could pick up on something inspiring. Not to mention she looks like the little girl that was little Bianca on the show. ;)

So we headed to the Lord of the Rings exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. I have to say Dana was kinda not liking me to start with - or rather she wasn't sure whether to like me or not. We went into the LOTR exhibit first and that was an interesting experience. I was the one walking around saying whether the costumes belonged to the actors or the stunt ones, and commenting on how tall/short everyone was. *snigger* I know, I'm weird. But the weapons were the things that blew me away. They were so huge! And I had no idea how any of those actors could have held them up let alone swing those swords or position those arrows. I think I'd just drop it from the heavyiness. Some of the jewellry wasn't as shiny as I expected either. What can I say, i'm weird. hehe. But I LOVED Galadriel's stuff. I wanted it all - dress, crown, ring, everything! It was so beautiful. And the costume that Arwen had when she rode the horse at the Fords of Bruin - that was soo nice as well. They had up bunches of sketches and paintings all along the walls too. Some of them were so beautiful I just wanted to rip them down and take them with me. I have to say Alan Lee does some magnificent work. I'd really like to know where these artists can get pictures of such beautiful places from in their minds. I want access to that part of my brain! :D So that was fun. Then in the little time we had we went to look through other parts of the museum, ran through the carousel, played on the trains, I rode a few bike things and we pretended to zap Chris in the electrical chair. *snicker* Dana decided that I was like her best friend or something after the carousel thing, so she always wanted to hold my hand and play with me. And after the electrical chair incident (where apparently we discovered I generate a lot of electricity), I took her to ride a kangaroo thing, and then she was squealing with laughter cause we were playing with one of those blowing things that blow a beachball into the air, and she needed me to get it down so she could make it blow up in the air again.

A really bad storm hit just as we were leaving though, so we were stranded inside the doorway waiting for it to ease. Helen was determined not to leave. Jocelyn was a tad frightened of the storm, but me and Dana were being typical Saggi's and not caring a bit. So she ended up getting pretty bored and decided to use me and Jocelyn to play jump games with. Once Jocelyn walked away to make a phone call, I crouched down so Dana wouldn't have to keep looking up at us all the time, and she took this opportunity to sit on my lap. I was actually quite stunned that she liked me this much (normally little kids get really attached to Russell, not me), and I had this fantastic balancing going on with her sitting on my lap, but I had to beg mum to get her off when it looked like we were going to go cause Dana wouldn't listen to me. Thankfully she listened to my mum cause as soon as she was off my lap I almost completely fell over! LOL. So me and Dana were pretty much ready to run out in the storm, and as it eased off a little we managed to convince Jocelyn to come too. Helen was still being obstinate, but she eventually followed and ended up in more of the downpour than we did! And Dana, the little cutie, decided she was going to jump in every puddle all the way across the open front part, as well as down the carpark ramp, so she needed me and Jocelyn to play her jumpy game again. Then once we were leaving, I was the only one she'd give a hug and kiss too. She was so annoyed with everyone else! haha. Odd, but really cool that a little kid could love me so much after one day.

So I've done a whole bunch of quizzes again (stealing off Zarina this time ;)Good to see I got a few the same as her for once!) with a few LOTR kind related ones just in the spirit of today. :D Results as below (I don't think I need to explain these - and if I do I think I'm too tired to realise :S )

Bring Me To Life
Bring Me To Life

Your Lyrics

How can you see
into my eyes
like open doors.
Leading you down into my core
where I've become so numb.
Without a soul
my spirit's sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home.

(Wake me up.
Wake me up inside.
I can't wake up.
Wake me up inside.
Save me.
Call my name and save me from the dark.
Wake me up.
Bid my blood to run.
I can't wake up.
Before I come undone.
Save me.
Save me from the nothing I've become.)

Now that I know what I'm without
you can't just leave me.
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life.


Bring me to life.
I've been living a lie
There's nothing inside.
Bring me to life.

Frozen inside without your touch,
without your love, darling.
Only you are the life among the dead.

All of this sight
I can't believe I couldn't see
Kept in the dark
but you were there in front of me

I've been sleeping a 1000 years it seems.
I've got to open my eyes to everything.

Without a thought
Without a voice
Without a soul

Don't let me die here
There must be something wrong.
Bring me to life.


Bring me to life.
I've been living a lie
There's nothing inside.

Bring me to life

Okay, so just a last noteage - this song in my music (cause I've been Switchfooting it all night) is now my new Chris song. Even down to the lyrics. It's so sad, and I may just have to make a vid now. And I know, I'm absolutely silly for trying to write Bianca fic to Chris songs, but yeah I did stop so ner :p I will try again tomorrow. Just need a way to get from where I am to where I need to be for the scene from Charmed. :D So nighty night peeps! *hugz*
