Presents I Got Given

As requested. (Previously.)


  • A tin of bacon & egg-themed bandaids in assorted shapes & sizes
  • Some plastic flies
  • A copy of Mr Nonsense
  • A spliff
  • A packet of Starburst Babies
  • A box of hot cinnamon gum bearing the legend “OH GOD I AM SO TOTALLY WASTED” (the preceding six items all from Patrick. Frikken legend; I only gave him a – y’know, nicely wrapped – lemon from my lemon tree and made him a card for his birthday.)
  • A packet of Marlboro Menthols
  • A bottle of cabernet merlot
  • Two sticks of Kinder chocolate
  • A tin of wasabi peas (mmm, wasabi peas)
  • A glass bubble with bubbles in it costing $8.75 (heh, bubbles)
  • A pair of new shoes (which I desperately needed)
  • The perfect bedside lamp (beautifully inscribed)
  • A blindfolded trip to the Werribee Open Range Zoo – and a lovely picnic and a lovely dinner gathering – with assorted awesome peeps, from a chick who likes animals
  • An M2M CD of mysterious provenance
  • A photo of a train passing through rural surrounds at night that only one other person apart from the person who sent it to me has seen
  • A four-and-a-half minute voicemail that I will keep for ever and ever
  • 60% of an iPhone paid off over two years (which I haven’t actually picked up yet, because I don’t want it to be cursed by association with the world of shit that was the apocalyptic writeoff week I’ve just had)
  • Several very nice cards
  • A bottle of black nailpolish
  • Another bottle of black nailpolish

These last two items are particularly timely & appreciated.

    I’m still wondering how an op shop came by the price of $8.75 for that glass bubble.
