Since I am now living on the other side of the world to my family and most of my friends this blog is about things I enjoy, things I notice, people I meet, people I miss, history, planning for the future, love and life in general! I guess it's about whatever pops into my head which I want to share with my friends and family... and who knows? I might make some more friends along the way!

where's the wombat?

Hi peoples! This crazy little wombat is very sorry not to have been on line often enough to 'blog' recently - it's been over 4 months since I last posted anything! (I am so ashamed!) But I have a new obsession and I think it's about time I shared it with you all!

It's called.... Firefly!

I cannot believe how long it took me to actually watch the series on DVD, but whilst house-sitting for my friend, Aveline, I finally got around to it and ... in less than a month I have memorised whole episodes line for line, joined a fansite, dropped off the fansite in a freak computer-thing-of-some-description, re-joined the website, watched every episode with and without commentary at least 3 times each, watched Serenity (the movie) too many times to remember (at least 8 times?) and seen it on the big screen at a charity event! I do not do things by half-measures!

As a result of this I have a few new words in my vocabulary so here they are in case I use them and you have no idea what I am talking about:

Shiney - good, terrific, great, positive, awesome!
'Verse - universe
BDH - big damn heroes
BDM - big damn movie
Gorram! - (Probably 'God damned' but lets ignore that and think of it as a good gutteral sound in appropriate situations)

In addition to this names such as Innara, Mal, Jayne and Wash, River, Simon or Kaylee might pop into my conversation - and if I start to look dreamy and say things like "mmmmm Jayne... yum!" I am not becoming a lesbian (just incase you're a single, secure, Christian male, more-or-less sane and planning to ask me to marry you) but mentally drooling over Adam Baldwin's character!

I will go into some more observations and thoughts in detail at some later stage - just thought you'd all like to know is-all! (Oh yeah, I might start talking a little like a cowboy too!)
