[community profile] three_weeks_for_dw was an absolutely fabulous festival of posting and sharing, but I completely failed to be a part of it. It's three weeks till my sister's wedding and four weeks until the end of semester, which makes me feel just a little bit snowed under -- even though, yes, I'm in Queensland and if it ever actually did snow, we'd likely think it was the apocalypse. I feel disappointed to have missed out on all the joy, but the goal was to give Dreamwidth a boost of enthusiasm and interaction; it certainly did that, so for now I guess I'll just pop in when I can and appreciate the new communities and journals 3W4DW put me in touch with.

Since my life revolves mostly entirely around wedding and school at the moment, a list of randomness, in no particular order:

[001] Last night I stumbled across these adorable shoes, in an incredibly happy bright orange, for $9.99. Not only are they super comfy, but they make me smile just looking at them.

[002] One of my friends linked to this post which discusses the Jewish origins of the Vulcan Salute. Agree or not, it's worth a read, and it definitely makes the old live-long-and-prosper seem even cooler.

[003] The fictional love letters meme is happening joyfully over at LiveJournal. I got a love poem from Keats!

[004] My mum and littlest brother are back in town preparatory to my sister's wedding, and tonight we are going out for Thai. Yay! Last time I had fish with tamarind sauce -- something along these lines, though not a whole fish, thank goodness -- and it was so delicious that I feel inclined to be boring and order exactly the same thing again.

[005] This week's mail brought Salinger's Franny and Zooey and Niffenegger's The Time Traveller's Wife. Both are required reading for school and I just love that I have to make time for reading them. It means I have to force myself to take time out from work, sit on the couch, and jump into another world. It's a good thing.
