So, Australia is fantastic, as always. It's my last full day in Brisbane, so I'm not going to waste a bunch of time blogging right now. Just a note to remind myself what to write about when I do get a chance: Paris Je T'aime, Hairspray, Transformers, Gossip Girl, and Once once again. Currently reading V for Vendetta, and am already finding it harder to read graphic novels than I expected. I have to keep reminding myself to go back and look at the images, instead of just reading the text. I'm getting better though. Hopefully I can get a local SIM card for my phone, and have the chance to catch up sometime when in Sydney. Happy new year!
What does "Kat Ex Machina" mean? The blog's title, and my online moniker, is taken from the popular plot device in storytelling, Deus ex machina, which means "God from a machine." It comes from the ancient Greek theatre, in which actors representing God would swoop in to the action and save the characters from a seemingly unsolvable situation. It is still used frequently as a contrivance in film and television. Kat Ex Machina means Kat (me) from a machine, and as my blog entries on a computer are about the best way for me to broadcast my trivial thoughts, it seemed appropriate.
