Unless you've been living under a rock, you know the iPad 2 is coming out soon, and I'm pretty sure I'm getting one. I never ended up with an original iPad, so I think it's time to treat myself to an early birthday present. I don't think I'll get it at launch, but hopefully soon after. Bit excited!

Have started sending some job applications out. Nothing too full on yet, but we'll see how we go.

More excitingly, yesterday I was allotted four seats to be part of The 7PM Project audience next Thursday! The studio is on Chapel St, so some friends and I are going out for drinks first, off to the show, and then out for dinner afterwards at The Oriental Tea House. Mmm, dumplings. I'd never had dumplings until I moved to Melbourne, and I can't believe what I've been missing!

Long weekend this weekend in Victoria, about which I was unaware until someone mentioned it off-hand at work on Monday. I'm going on a brunch date Saturday on Chapel St, and will probably have brunch in St Kilda with my housemate on Sunday to start scoping out our new suburb. Other than that, I'll hopefully spend the rest of it getting ready to move.

I went to lunch with a friend today (Alyce) and I mentioned off-hand how a) I wanted to see Wicked and b) I want to go for a trip to Melbourne at some point. She just about fell off her chair saying she wanted to see Wicked so bad and also would like to see Melbourne at some point!

My original plan was to go to Wicked in Melbourne and kill two birds with one stone, but I hadn't realised that it had already been to Melbourne before coming to Sydney. So the current tentative plan is to fly to Sydney one Friday after work, see Wicked at the Capitol Theatre, then fly down to Melbourne Saturday morning, spend the weekend there doing Melbourney things and then come back Sunday night. Exciting!

I'm also taking tomorrow off to go to Port Macquarie for my grandfather's 80th birthday. It'll be good to catch up with some family that I haven't seen for a while, and the beach is always nice. I love Port. I love long weekends away.

I'm probably going to Festival of the Sun in Port mid-December, and a trip to Bathurst some time soon to catch up with friends. Busy, busy.

Okay, it wasn't really therapy, but it makes me feel better about spending the money if I tell myself it was... I bought a tie, cuff links and handkerchief set today from a place down in Melbourne. Hopefully they'll arrive before next Tuesday. I've taken the day off work to go to the local horse race track for their Melbourne Cup Day with some friends. A few weeks ago I bought myself an amazing new suit, and this will be my first chance to wear it. Very exciting!

I'm going to Newcastle next week to visit some old uni friends. I love these girls and I haven't seen them in so long, so it'll be great. My sister also recently semi-moved to Newcastle, so I'll see her as well. I haven't really been to Newcastle much, even though it's only a 3.5 hour drive from here. I'll probably go more now that I have quite a few friends and family there.

Sort of broke AJAX ESN on Dreamwidth today with a code push, but I was able to fix it easily and Mark pushed the patch live not long after. The end result is that AJAX ESN/comment management now works in S2 with text-based links and not just image-based ones! I also added an option for community maintainers to chose whether a "Post to this community" link and a "View this community's posting guidelines" (the entry for which can be set by maintainers) after someone joins/subscribes to the community.
