savouring the final sweetness of being 16 - it wasn't that tasty

Something which ticks me off - time (no pun intended, though now that I've noticed it, I'm having a mini party in my head because to me there is no such thing as cheesy word play). So, being the paranoid neurotic that I am, I spent the better half of tonight wondering what I should do in these last few hours to make the most of the final moments of my final day of being 16. As usual my wondering was not very fruitful and here I am celebrating youth by blogging. "Not again Sunni!" yes again.

Because it's so late and I don't fancy much the prospect of describing every detail of my life in the past few days, I'll just spend this time being completely egocentric and self-indulgent. So this is why I'm now going to post the birthday presents I've gotten so far:

A few days ago, my cousin took me to the CD shop and told me to pick a CD or two and he'll buy them for me as a present. Good idea I said!

"Poses" by Rufus Wainwright. Favourite song on it would have to be "Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk" for it's cute melody and clever lyrics.

and "10000 Hz Legend" by Air.


My friends have also finally figured out what a Holga is and where to buy one after I gave them a lot of strong hinting *cough*sending them the ebay link*cough*. So this baby is now on its way to my eagerly awaiting and ready to click at any moment index finger. I was so excited that I spent an entire night searching for cheap medium format film.

That's all I've gotten so far but I'm quite satisfied already. I am, infact..quite possibly, nonchalant about turning 17 now. It may just be an "in between year" (to quote Eric) but it's not like that will make the sky less blue or the sugar less sweet. It's time to see birthdays as a celebration of another year of being alive rather than a ticking clock. Time to switch on.

Tomorrow I'm going to be crashing at Mich's house to bake myself a birthday cake. This is perhaps part of my new "self initiative for self benefit" lifestyle. Alana will be providing the recipe so I just KNOW it will be amazing. =D We are thinking of making something chocolate and dyed metallic purple.

Because this is my entry devoted to self-indulgence, I'm going to share some doodles I've done in this little black visual diary my art teacher had given me at the beginning of this year. They're pretty small doodles, infact these images are basically life size.

Ok, it's now 11:56pm. I think I'm going to sing "I am Sixteen Going on Seventeen" now since it'll be my last chance ever to do that..

oops. It's 12:00am now.


Ok, I should get some sleep. I'll leave you all with the lyrics of "Cigarette and Chocolate Milk" then :)

Cigarettes and chocolate milk
These are just a couple of my cravings
Everything it seems I likes a little bit stronger
A little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me

If I should buy jellybeans
Have to eat them all in just one sitting
Everything it seems I likes a little bit sweeter
A little bit fatter, a little bit harmful for me

And then theres those other things
Which for several reasons we wont mention
Everything about em is a little bit stranger, a little bit harder
A little bit deadly

Its not very smart
Tends to make one part
So brokenhearted

Sitting here remembering me
Always been a shoe made for the city
Go ahead accuse me of just singing about places
With scrappy boys faces have general run of the town

Playing with prodigal sons
Take a lot of sentimental valiums
Cant expect the world to be your raggedy andy
While running on empty you little old doll with a frown

You got to keep in the game
Retaining mystique while facing forward
I suggest a reading of lesson in tightropes
Or surfing your high hopes or adios kansas

Its not very smart
Tends to make one part
So brokenhearted

Still theres not a show on my back
Holes or a friendly intervention
Im just a little bit heiress, a little bit irish
A little bit tower of pisa
Whenever I see ya
So please be kind if Im a mess

Cigarettes and chocolate milk
Cigarettes and chocolate milk

Bis bis
Sunni xx

I only realised just before I left for HK that Dirt Cheap CD's has been gone. I've never shopped there but...yeah walked passed a lot.

Also, I don't think it's the film that's going to cost you more than the Holga itself. Dang I really want a film scanner. They're way too expensive. *sniff sniff*

Those who care a dit…

Sunni, I hope you have a very merry and fucking awesome birthday where the cake itself would adore being eaten by a such an uniquely amazing, brilliant and loveable being.
