I totally forgot to tell this story, haha. A few weeks ago now I had a really detailed dream in which I somehow went back in time to some kind of conglomeration of the Victorian period and Jane Austen films (lol) and was basically adopted by a really nice family and ended up living with them quite happily. It was basically a self-insert Austen-fic, hehehe. But the best part was that I had a cunning plan for all of my friends who were still trucking along as per in the future. I collected a whole bunch of first edition books and went around meeting authors and getting signed copies, and then I parcelled them all up and sorted it so that they were left to my friends in the future with a letter from me that they recieved just after I vanished into the past (like in the Doctor Who episode "Blink" with Sally Sparrow and her friend). So, if I ever do randomly get sent into the past, which first editions/signatures would you like me to collect for you? If you went back in time, when and where would you like to go? Who would you like to meet?

Anne is visiting at the moment. She is super cool. We had a delicious lamb stir-fry for dinner made with Silver Fern lamb, which is the really good kind that used to be only exported and is now the best and strawberry gelato for dessert. We always have fancy dinner when we've just been grocery shopping, lol.

Also, I believe I said I would post some photos :P


And here's a picture of Wellington that I nicked off Lee's camera XD
And this is a picture of the super awesome Doctor Who cake that Shona made for Lee and I for our birthdays back in December.  

Totally awesome, right? She's not even into Doctor Who, she just knows that we are, lol. 

We are watching Project Runway. It's so much fun XD

I love that cake. The hugging Dalek! So cute :)

Your dream sounds so amazing and detailed. I'm always impressed when people remember their dreams but I usually forget mine. I'm not sure when in the past I'd like to travel to - I think I'd like to hop around and go to the Middle Ages, 18th century, 19th century, 1920s, 30s, 40s...it's too hard to choose so I'd have to go everywhere. :D

The views look irritatingly familiar, as if with sufficient brain-racking I could mentally place myself on your street. That's what I love most about Wellington - its many hills that all look not *quite* the same. I sometimes walk home, or to other destinations, by long routes that allow me to stare across valleys, thinking, "So what street am I looking at exactly over there?" I am still not totally convinced of the existence of a "Mount Cook".

OMG, that cake is totally awesome!! <3

Nice pics too.

And interesting dream. :D
I mostly don't remember my dreams at all, or sometimes only just right after I've woken up, but then forget really quick... :-( I always said there should exist something like a dream recorder, so you can watch them again! :D *lol*

That cake looks awesome. Love the pics of the views from your flat! I'm kind of jealous...all I see outside my window are houses and backyards lol.

Haha, that dream sounds great! If I could go back in time, I think I'd want to go back to the '20s or somewhere in the 1800s. Any time would be truly interesting...I'm obsessed with history and each time period has its cool points.

Project Runway! I haven't watched it in ages but I think I enjoy just the beginning and the end: What's the challenge and what did the designers create? The in-between gets too much for me sometimes. Have you ever watched Top Chef?

Your PHOTOS are gorgeous, and I love that you'd go around collecting autographs in the past! :o) Margaret Mitchell for me please, if, you know, you get the chance! ;oP

You'd best leave me signed copies of the complete Jane Austen. I know where you live.
