Thanks for all the support everyone, it is appreciated.

Our news story has made quite the splash on facebook. Both of them.

Mainly I have been trying to see humour in it, instead of the horribly, horribly depressing, cos let's face it, it's horribly, horribly depressing, and I really don't want to think about it. The most upsetting parts are when I see before shots like this since it now looks like this.

Actually, I got most upset last night when I looked at this since it used to look like this. :(

Yesterday was surreal, going in and pulling stuff out. We've put anything we could in the garage and locked it up, as they've now boarded up the house.

Today... I dunno. I have a mysterious headache. But it all still seems so weird, and detached.

And it's very quiet here today. Matt had to go back to prac, Trys is at his family's house, Tat is in Katoomba, and Dad has gone to hospital for a knee replacement.

So I am sitting here thinking how I need to go hang out all my clothes that have been washed to see if the smell will come out. And also how Mum sent me $500 to go shopping with, and I really don't want to.

Obviously the nightmare in this for me is that I have to go clothes shopping :p I really will since my wardrobe with all my jackets in it melted (well the inside did) and it is still winter. So very many jackets...

Tonight I go to Mum's for dinner, and I need to buy a birthday cake for grandma since it is her birthday week, and I kinda stepped all over it with my house fire :p She said my birthday present was that I was alive. David pointed out that we've always been alive for her birthdays and we still get her things :p

Anyways, I ought to actually make an effort with those clothes I guess.


P.S. Anyone who was wondering, the fire happened about 10mins after I posted that entry about how long my day was :p

:( That's horrible.
But I guess at least you are alive.

Yes, we are grateful for that. Though it always seems weird when people say that, cos it wasn't like we were running for our lives. We just walked out the front cos the dryer was billowing too much smoke.

So when the firemen started saying they were amazed we were alive we we like "but we just walked out"

That's fair enough. At least you noticed it, I know some people who wouldn't til it was almost too late.

Yeah, they dryer was making a horrible horrible noise (it was on fire, and still functioning) which is what alerted one roommate. The other was closest and smelt smoke. They both went to check and started yelling for me.

On fire and still functioning... o_O odd. very odd.

Yes, the whole thing was weird really. It was just burning in the dryer, we didn't think it was even going to spread. Obviously we were wrong.

*hugs you* Holy wow, that's terrible. I know you're okay, but as a fellow bookworm (I'm reading Sam's post in another tab) if you want any books I'll buy you something. I'm pretty close to you actually so they wouldn't take long in the mail. I can't imagine losing my books *cuddles them*.

When I'm in Sydney over the weekend, I'll see if the factory outlet has any in stock.

I could try some sort of poetic platitude...

I could try assuring you by telling you that everything you're feeling is perfectly human and perfectly natural...

Or I could try to play along with finding humour, and helping you return to 'normal' conversation topics, by inviting you into the house that love built...

You made me and Tat laugh :)

OK, the upcoming anniversary came up in discussion with [ profile] spaciireth (the fire was two days after her birthday). Can you please settle a bet for us:

If someone proposed that you acknowledge/celebrate the fire's anniversary would it be a) Tasteless, b) Painful, c) Therapeutic, d) An excuse for a party?

Date: 16/06/2010 01:12 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
d) (with a hint of c)

I have been thinking about it for a while actually, and have been trying to come up with a name for such a party.

Phoenix party? Rising from the ashes and such.

No I'm sure it'll be something far stupider like... burniversary.

Who won btw?

We were both flip-flopping with our answers... but she settled on something closer to yours before I did... so I guess that means she won.

Cheese party? "Blue" vintage... going crumbly after a year.

Well glad I could help. :p

You're still thinking far too highbrow. This isn't QI you know.

One year blaze

Anniversary blast

(You should have known not to get me started on this!)

Haha go for gold, you might find the right one! :p

I am racking my brain trying to think of something containing the word 'furnace'.

FYI I think we may be going ahead with a 'burniversary' :p

As soon as you said it, I knew in my heart it was fated to be the name. But, y'know, since this is me...

hahaha, I can't help that it's catchy.

Na na na. Na na na. Na na Naaaah.


Sorry, you gotta admit, it's catchy.

I got a Mr Burns 'See My Vest' figure for Matt at Supanova.

If the phoenix is too highbrow, maybe Mr BURNs can be the party mascot.
