What a swell party this is.
I went to the UQ Antiquities Museum end-of-year party/unveiling of the interns exhibit/general meeting (as Daniel succinctly put it) tonight. I love an excuse to dress up, particularly since I'm one of those people who tends to overdress most of the time anyway. I was going to wear my red Carmen dress (wore it when I went to the opera last year), but I ended up going in safe black instead. And blended right in with everyone else. Except for my pointless-but-pretty gold shawl and cartouche necklace, which everybody-who-knows-Egyptian-hieroglyphs had to have a look at just to check that it did in fact spell my name.

I have to say, when I first started going to UQ, I never expected to find myself a circle of friends like the ones I have now. I pretty much thought that I'd be on my own with my odd Latin-obsessed thoughts. But that wasn't to be, and I had the best time tonight, being able to socialise with all these students and academics that I knew. The interns (one of whom is one of my said friends, Clare) exhibit was based around animals in the ancient world, and was vibrant and very well put together.

Only thing was, I spent so much talking that I didn't have that much to eat. So I'm making my way through the last bit of block of Dove almond caramel chocolate that was in the fridge. But all in all, a very good night.

Also started doing something about my Christmas card list in the past few days. When Christmas is closer, I'll put a poll up on lj so any of you who would like a card from me can get one. Seeing as I've been earning enough money to warrant me sending cards overseas. :)

And now that the party is over? Time to prepare for the exams. And what a mood killer that is after tonight.

Current Mood: happy happy
Current Music: Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra- Well Did You Evah?
