New Years Eve, 2008

What are you doing for New Years Eve this year? Some of my friends are organised, in that I've already been invited to one New Years Eve Party.

I've also been pointed at Euchronia, a "</em>Neo-Victorian Year's End Ball</em>", at Trades Hall on New Years Eve till some ungodly hour the next morning. And to be honest, it's very tempting. I have never been to an event like this, and I'm thinking quite seriously about it. The fact that the person who pointed me at it is one of the DJ's for the night has absolutely nothing to do with it, honestly.

The problem is that I wouldn't want to go to it alone, and I really would like to make an effort at a costume if I was to go.



I like the outfit the guy is wearing in the poster (and to be honest, I think he's very cute too) and would love to try and do up something slightly steampunk that would fit in with the theme. Tickets are $55 if bought before hand, so is there anyone interested in coming along with me?

I've decided that NYE can die in a fire, I'm either having a BBQ in Brisbane or one on my balcony.

Oh - that's in Melbourne! Cool. The place I saw it advertised is usually chock full of US events and I kind of glazed over and stopped paying attention.

I'm most interested in going to this...

If I didn't make it clear already I am more than willing to go op-shopping with you, help with sewing or whatever if you want a hand with your outfit... :D

I'm excited about this gig, already working on my set :)

Well, I sure as hell know what I want to wear. What I would like is the outfit Gilgamesh is wearing in this.

Now, the question is, do I be your "plus one", or do I buy my own... I think I'm going to be a member of their Antipodean League of Temporal Voyagers, just so I can get a nifty pocketwatch.

Love to!

Unfortunately Victoriana is out of my expertise level, nor do I have any brown fabric in my stash.

Other than that - let me know ....

That sounds awesome, and you'd look seriously hot decked out like that. :)

As for myself, I have no idea what I'm doing. Traditionally NYE is a completely depressing time of year for me and I get stuck at home like some boring-arsed housefrau. :(

I'm thinking about making a pre-emptive resolution to change that, though. ;)

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
