Speech Night Dress Hunting....OLD STYLE!

I have begun the search for a dress to wear to my end of year "formal" (actually it is called speech night, and it is our schools version of a formal for the grade 10 leavers).

But i don't want one of those typical run-off-the-mill dresses made out of shiny material that all the girls wear. None of those tarty, cheap looking taffeta dresses from all those fashion outlets that are always featured in soppy girls magazines like Cosmo and Girlfriend *SPEWS*. I want something DIFFERENT and UNIQUE that i will actually remember. 
So, i decided to have a VICTORIAN ERA STYLE DRESS :D .
My Oma makes lots of awesome funky shabby chic dresses out of doilies and lace and random stuff, and she has recently exhibited in galleries her clothes, or rather, altered couture.
So i am planning to ask her to make me a dress, and Mum said if i supply her with a pattern and material, me mum and oma can make me a great old style formal dress that will really be unique and blow people away <3

I am looking forward to it! ^^ (and i also tried on mums wedding dress and HER formal dress, lol, the sleeves were to short and my chest wouldn't fit, hahaha)

Games :D

To my surprise as I was watching Erik scroll through his list of games on his pc, i saw the LEGENDARY black & White 2 (yesh, TWO :D) to which i was ecstatic, and asked if i could also have it. So he gave it to me and BAM. I am completely hooked on it <3

Black & white was created by the same guy who has recently developed Project NATALL for the Xbox 360, which is coming out later this year *EXCITEMENT* :D he is, simply put, a sheer genius <3

Check out the epic screen shot. I have a giant wolf currently <3

There is nothing better than playing a game where you control a giant beast with your godly hand (yes, you are a GOD in this game who controls the world :D) and construct towns while eating a lovely bowl of rice <3

I cut myself with the razor! D: it shtings.....;___; 
So I am heading into town now to collect my boyfriend for the weekend. He is six months younger than me (LOL), rather tall, skinny (perhaps to skinny.....I must FEED HIM :D), black straight, rather "anime" spiky hair, blueish greenish eyes and freckles. We share a lot of interest and are best friends as well as a romantic couple. My two best friends tease him a lot, they reckon he is gay and girly.......for the record, I dont have any problem with all types of sexuality, i say, if you love 'em, who cares what gender they are? xD

Despite that he is coming over for the weekend........Callum bought some FIFA game for the, he decided to host some FIFA xbox party with 4 of his friends (THATS RIGHT......there will now be TWELVE of us in the house tonight) that may become all a little hectic, ill have to hide in my room with my Bf ;D 

Should i make really long posts, or short, more frequent ones? I it better to compile them all in one long one? meh. 

As far as friends go I have basically two best friends, lets give them the alias's of Aliana and Kirsty. Aliana is from the Philippines (which i did NOT know existed until i met her >_>....yeah....i am geographically challenged) and I have now a huge want to go there with her :D Kirsty is from South Africa.....and I must say, i am NOT so keen to go there with her >_> Dangerous, dangerous place that is from what she has told me (AND AFTER I WATCHED THE STUPID DISTRICT 9 MOVIE....I NEVER WANT TO SEE JOHANNESBURG EVER AGAIN! ;___;). We all go to school together and atm things are good between us. Oh and we play badminton together in a team for school.

Okies I will keep getting ready now to go collect the Bf.....*sigh*......period pain >_< ;___;


Back at my mothers house today ^^ Which equals heaps of fast internet :D (we do a one week on, one week off schedule between mum and dads houses, change over is on fridays >_>)

My family...well I will keep it relatively brief. 

My immediate family:
Mother - Maike  (German) (occupation: Nurse, makes herbal remedies and creams)
Father - Cary (Australian) (occupation: IT dude, works for the Wilderness society)
Brother 1 - Erik (14 years old)
Brother 2 - Oscar (6 years old.....yes, me and him have quite an age gap) 

And now it gets a little complex, you see, mum and dad are divorced (for how long? i or two or maybe three years? meh.) and mum is now engaged to a man called Ian, so here is what Ian brought along:

Ian - (age? 40 something...) (occupation: Scientist at the antarctic division, does stuff with whales :D....also has a PHD, and is a mathematician >_> i fail so bad at maths..........ANYWAY)
Step-brother-to-be #1 : Callum (14, Erik's best friend......well that turned out dandy, didnt it? if i could make my best friend my step sister, heh, it would be super)
Step-brother-to-be #2 : Ethan (unsure of age...he is around 10 or 11 i think.....maybe 12?)
Step-brother-to-be #3 : Lemuel (about 8 or 9 i think) 
So because Ian is now engaged to mum, they decided to rent a house together. So of course now there is mum, Ian and all of SIX KIDS in the house.....of which, i am the ONLY GIRL >_> 
Yes it does kinda suck, at times. But hey, i have my own room and i usually hide in there from the chaos anyhow. being the eldest and the only girl does get me some extra bonuses though, like extra money and food etc. 

My dad is now ALSO engaged, he proposed to a woman called Felicity, who is really nice, an out door kinda person with a lot of life, she is good for dad. 

My dad lives on a property of 20 acres , and up the property a bit my grandmother (Joy, dads mum, age...60 something) got a shed built as her 'house', so she lives there. 

My other grandparents, are my Oma and Opa (yesh, German term for grandma and grandpa) who live in Brisbane. My Oma's name is Erika ( just turned 60 i think, or she is like 59) (and NO, mum did NOT name Erik after her, it is pure coincidence) and my Opa's name is Theodore, though people call him Theo (early 60's). I love my Oma and Opa so much, they are very 'cuddly' grandparents i guess, i feel really comfy around them and Oma is so much like mum it is hilarious :D

Then of course there is mums only sibling Ilka, who is an archaeologist who lived in Egypt for 8 years (and sent me email pics of mummies she dug up......which was MOST disturbing >_>) who is married to an arabian man called Alan. They have an apartment in Darwin.

I then havetwo uncles who are dads brothers, Glen and Rob. Glen is somewhat a loner, has no current girlfriend. Rob is with a lovely girl called D'nelle, she loves cats.  Both live in Queensland somewhere.

And that is about it. I will mention though that i am a LOT more familiar with mum's side of the family, i get warm vibes from them.

I have HEAPS of relatives living in Germany, from Oma and Opas families. Including, two GREAT grandmothers who are still alive and pumping xD Great Oma Hilda and Great Oma Emi, one from each side of the family. There is to many German relatives of mine to go into, but i thought the two great grandmothers deserved an honorable mention ^^

And of COURSE< there is my baby Basil, who is my gorgeous Coton de Tulear dog, i love him so muches <3 Checky the EXAMPLE (no, that is NOT actually Basil.he is CUTER than that <3) pic above of a Coton De Tulear........go google for cuter pics xD

So there we have it, my family. I mentioned them so it is easier for you to understand who is who when i mention them in my future posts xD

AHAH! Take that laptop, you are now fully charged..eheheh. >_>

Well I think this whole blogging thing is quite nifty.......even though i realize a lot of people do not want to hear other peoples random shit...I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND >_> I will not go and romanticize my "random shit" by telling you it is any different from everyone elses....but hey, what can i do? I am just a "normal" (yeah, right >_>) person, not some uber famous superstar that EVERYONE wants to know about...chances are, no one will even read my blog ^^ BUT THAT WILL NOT STOP ME D: I am determined to write this blog anyhow, if not for everyone else, but for myself, to keep track of things...electronic diaries are SO much less effort to update xD
NOTE: I HATE egotistical being a pessimist is no good either, we should appreciate ourselves for who we are, but yeah, NO EGO. Trust me I have experienced enough ego'ness in my lifetime from people around me to make me want to run away from them while screaming like all those poor people in the game Assassin's Creed (well duh..if you see someone get assassinated, what ELSE are you expected to DO?!).....well that is my random bit of info about me for the day.

And seeing as I live in the lovely giant island AUSTRALASIA.......(that is so much COOLER than "AUSSIE") it is now time for me to that will be all for today <3 (I know it is early...i have a cold...and my brother is booting me off the lappy...*KILLS BROTHER*) (and no, he is NOT to young to DIE....14 is fine enough to end ones life, especially via sibling assassination xD)

~ Ciaos! ~

FIRST BLOG......congrats to me?

We-ell......This is all rather new, i must say. This is my first time attempting blogging, i am dearly hoping there is no 'right' way to do it, otherwise i am screwed xD I got the sudden urge to try out creating a blog when i finished reading the graphic novel "Confessions of a Blabbermouth". So here i am. ^^ Im going to write about interesting things in my day to day, to keep a sort of online diary (and hopefully not bore you all to death >_>). Thats all for now because this lappy is on under 10% power :S
