Exciting News Everyone!

August 15th, 2011 by Selise
Did you read that title in Professor Farnsworth’s voice? Because I totally heard it in my head that way as I wrote it.

Alright. Exciting things are afoot. 3 exciting things actually. Let me lay them on you.

Exciting Thing Number One: I drove to the shopping centre on the weekend! OK, I understand this is only exciting in context. The context being that I am currently learning to drive and this is the first time in my life that I’ve actually driven to the store. This is exciting. This also brings us to…

Exciting Thing Number Two: I bought a sweet ass jacket from Myer. That was reduced from $100 to $40 and is perfect for wearing to, oh I dunno, somewhere like…AMERICA! Which is where we’re going in approximately 73 days. Totally not even ashamed to admit that I downloaded a count down app to document the process.

We’ll be there for a little under 2 weeks. Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Seattle. Aww yeah!

And now to Exciting Thing Number Three: OK, straight up this is exciting on a level that I didn’t even know existed. A simultaneous laugh and cry excitement that made for some interesting people watching if you happened to be one of the people watching me at the train station when I found out. And now here’s the kicker. I can’t tell you what it is! YET! I can tell you this week though. So here’s what I need you to do…

Keep coming back throughout the week. I promise I’ll share this with you as soon as I can. But there’s an added bonus…

What’s that you say? Well, to celebrate I’m thinking of hosting a give away. I had so much fun with the last one – I wanna do it again! So what I need you guys to do leave a comment telling me if you’re keen, and what kind of thing you’d like me to give away (let’s be sensible kids…I’m not made of gold flakes and Chandon). If I get enough people wanting to participate by Wednesday then I’ll announce it on Friday and we can all be excited together. Yay!

Sunglasses: Dangerfield
Shirt: Cotton On

    Good news, everyone! Ohmygod, I wish there were a way to embed a soundbite into a post title. Farnsworth is the man.

    I'm with aaronpgl. Beer is a good choice.

    Jewelry, baked goods or random/funny household objects would also be lovely.
