Went out and met Sara for a Starbucks - lovely caramel chocolate in hand and we discussed classes and home life and made our way into writing. And honestly, once you get a writing talking...we were there for 4hrs. Four lovely hours of chatting about plots and characters and music for trailers and people that have inspired things, oh so lovely. I'm so inspired to rewrite a lot of TCM1 with a rather larger plot point, that will make more sense.
Came back, had a nifty shower, and traded some links with Sara. She now has me hooked on Television Tropes, an endless link site better than Stumble
I'm not sure where everyone else came from but Cameron led the dinner making portion which led to a lovely sit-down dinner lasagna we shared.....all 13 of us, followed by my dumpling dessert. Well received (Thanks Steve for the idea! You're right no one can resist them). Someone asked if they were Canadian. I'm not actually sure, but I stole the recipe, so they could be from elsewhere. Moving into the common room, we participated in a game of Family Fortune (British Family Feud) and whooped the opposing team 25 to 3
Esther and Daphne brought out this week's project: their massive rolo, about 3kg of chocolate and toffee they made, upended, and put on a dish. Absolutely massive. There are lovely pictures somewhere else I think. They smashed it open with a night and we ate huge chunks of chocolate covered in toffee with love. It's probably what led to the hyper behaviour that followed. When we had washed everything up, furniture was pushed back and we had a dance party that included favourites like Thriller, and digressed into my recommendations of double dream hands and double dream feet, a huge success, and macerana, the chacha dance....whatever we could think of punctuated by Sarah's random interludes. This became random Wikipedia Charades - I got 'Slaves Mass'. It's the title of an old Brazilian CD if you want to look it up, then we spoke of camping at term end.
Lovely evening as it was, I really do love everyone here, I skyped my mother and now I am going to sleep to make sure I'm up for church on time and not too sleepy. Dumplings for breakfast!
Plenty of love to all,
