My random icon picker chose this icon.... I didn't do it.

Today was really warm and I was sick of the waiting for something to happen and I couldn't sit around any more. I took a bus into town because Alice in Videoland said their shop would be open. I love that place. I'm SO glad the building was declared safe... So I travelled into the city with a bus driver who told me all about his quake experience. He was awesome! The Bus Exchange had been opened an hour before I got there which pleased me.

I was surprised that most of the city is still standing. There are a lot of structurally unsafe buildings, but I only saw two which had crumbled completely. On my way home I took a detour through the Sydenham Cemetery though, and it suffered. A much of monuments are lying down flat or broken into pieces. They entire place is cordoned off except for the main road through it. So heartbreaking.

On a random note, the shops have plantains and I am excited because I can make some of my Mexican recipes, yay!

Still paranoid, but at least I slept through the night last night. Awesome. It won't help that I just rented a bunch of horror movies... But OH OH Alice's had The House of Frankenstein on DVD!! I AM SO IMPRESSED! Random, old horror movies that suck FTW!!! And they were selling a used copy of Danny Bhoy for 8 bucks so I got that as well. The one in Sydney, not the one in Melbourne. This pleases me.
