Refund It!

11:27pm: So yesterday I decided to buy that 2-in-1 laptop from Aldi because, it seemed like a good idea and the parental units were on board. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but...alas it just wasn't right. In that it the screen was too small, so all the text was tiny and even when I tried to zoom in it just wasn't right. Maybe it wasn't related but later in the night I had such horrible headache, seriously, it was killing me!

Also, the screen flickered when I got on Tumblr and the touch screen wasn't quite receptive enough - although I guess I should have expected that one, it's not top-market after all. So I decided to return it, which is allowed, except there was one small issue...the laptop came with a year's subscription to Microsoft Office so I activated it. I think it might be attached to my email now...which means even though I've returned the computer the next person who buys it won't be able to use the subscription! I did go to the Microsoft website to try and sort it out, they told me not worry , though I'm not sure that's true.

I feel bad about that, I gotta say. Maybe I should look into it again tomorrow.

Aside from computer related sheninigans yesterday was a good day! It was a public holiday so I didn't have to get to Mrs S's place until 9:30 and then I finished early and went to the parental abode for lunch with the parental units and the little bro. Not only was lunch delicious, the little bro had some good news, not only is work going well, he's decided to quit smoking. Yay! :OD It seems to be going well for him so far, so fingers crossed that goes on.

I spent the night at the parentals so Mum and I could watch our show - it's a hilarious topical game show, ah we laugh so hard.

Which makes me bummed that for the next two weeks I'll be watching it on my own because Mum and Dad are off to Japan to visit the big bro. Sniff, them's the brakes I guess, I'm sure they'll have fun, I'm not sure if I mentioned but they'll be doing some tourist stuff like going to an onsen.

I really should get going because it's ten minutes to midnight and I've got work tomorrow! I had work today actually, because Mrs S said her other carer wanted to meet me and that I should probably show her a few things and also to help rearrange a room...although the whole room thing ended up being a bust, LOL. Anyway! She was nice and actually said we should meet up sometime because she likes cooking Peruvian food (she's from Peru too) which means I could try it.

And lastly, the fanfic is still going, although now I wonder, if I write the whole thing before I start posting it do I posted it all at once or what? Please advise.

Right, now I really have to go.

Goodnight all!

11:24pm: Which is making me think I must have long term sleep-deprivation or something, it's rather concerning to be honest! Obviously I'm not time managing things properly! Although I'm really starting to wonder how I managed to write and keep up with my reading all those years ago. It's not like I wasn't working at all or anything...I guess I have to blame Tumblr there's so much going on on that thing. Perhaps I need to accept if I skip a day I won't be catching up :OP

Moving along, not much to report, except I didn't manage to go ice skating yesterday! I thought I'd have enough time to go and get my skates sharpened and get back to the Mall, but as usual things took longer than expected. So, I'm thinking of going tomorrow instead...otherwise it'll be getting on to three weeks since I've been! I'm also seriously considering just leaving my skates at the rink to be sharpened off-site, because all that extra travelling to the skate shop probably adds up in time and petrol costs.

In other news, I keep buying things and then returning them, for example today I went to Officeworks looking for a stylus, which I got, but I also saw these small tablets for sale, they came in different colours and I though the green one would be a fine replacement for my old tablet (that thing is slow as shit now a days), but alas it had crappy screen resolution, so I took it back. I probably expected too much from a $66 thing. LOL.

I should just accept my Bamboo art tablet, it's a bit small and weird to draw on something and have it show up on the laptop screen. Either that or try and find a different tablet, but eh, the decent one's are still pretty expensive.

Anyway, I have to head off because even if I do get to start work an hour later tomorrow because of the public holiday I really should endeavour to catch up on my sleep, unless I want to keep this eye twitch thing, which I totally do not.

And that's all I have to say about that. :OP

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:12pm: Yep, I was hoping the weather people had dropped the ball on their predictions (it happened a couple of weeks back) but nope, it looks like it's going to be a very wet weekend. To which I say boo, because I wish to go ice skating and I probably need to get my blades sharpened which means driving and I'm a little leery about driving in the pouring rain. Especially since some of the roads I take are prone to flooding with this sort of weather, I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers.

Also...the weather was deceptively clear when I got home from doing some shopping today (after finishing up at Mrs S's place) and it was sheet washing day so I put them on and headed for the gym. However, a little over halfway through my work out it started absolutely bucketing down! So I had to do some creative sheet hanging because I can't put them on the line. Which is bad news because I don't have any room anything else so no clothes washing today...I really hope I can get everything done and dry by Monday.

What else to report? Well, I did briefly buy a Bamboo Spark which was on special at Aldi - it's been there for a while and it looked interesting. I have a Bamboo One but it's weird to draw on because you can't actually see what you're drawing on the thing itself, it appears on the laptop screen and it's a little disconcerting. When I got the Spark home though I discovered there's an app for tablets and smartphones that lets you draw on the screen and it's free! The Spark is a little weird...in that you actually draw on paper with a special pen which then sends the strokes you made to an app, so there's still a bit of disconnect. Plus it was sixty bucks, and I'm not meant to be spending money on extraneous stuff, so after the gym I returned it.

The only downside to the app is that my phone screen is too small for it to really work properly and my tablet is a bit too old - on the other hand it could just be the stylus I'm using...might need to check into that. So I might just have to stick with the Bamboo One after all that. Pft, fail.

On the fan fic front, I'm most relieved that while working at Mrs S's today I found a way to move the story forward, phew! I was getting bogged down and the headache I had last night wasn't helping at all. Of course, having a story idea while working isn't very helpful because I couldn't write it down, but patience is a virtue, or something. :OP

So, it's getting late and thus I better head off, I only have one other thing to report...the handle decided to break off my regular sized pot, do'h! Now I need to find a new one, but should I splash out and buy a new set of pots? Or just replace that one? Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.

And now I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

11:17pm: Yeees, George III's birthday was a couple of days ago 4th June! Happy Birthday to the Monarch who's collection became the nexus of the British Library.

In other news, this is a creepy as Hell episode of Cold Case...I mean they usually are, but this one has a sick pedophile, so yeah, gross. There's a lot of sickos out there.

Not much else to report, although I did get my volunteering done at Dee Why Library as well as my paid shift at Mona Vale. Although, I'm not really looking forward to that bullshit training thing I have to go to on Thursday, I spoke to a colleague who went to the session that was on this morning and it sounds like the biggest wank. The only upside is I'll be paid for my time, but still...there's other stuff I could be doing, like writing my fic! I've slowed down in writing it, I don't want to lose the mojo...I'm think I should bring a notebook to that stupid training thing and write in it like I used to do at school. Hah that'll take me back.

Anyway, it's getting late and I need to wrap this up so I can get to sleep ASAP once Cold Case finishes, which is soon! Although this entry is seriously lacking, sorry about that - although I sure feel like I'm saying that a lot :OP I should get an interesting hobby!

And that's all I have to say about that.

11:18pm: Yeeeessss! After work today I went over to M and Grandpa's place so M and I could play Canasta together and as you can probably guess from my subject title, I won! Yaaaaays! I have to admit I was greatly assisted by the first hand. I shuffled the cards, but I still ended up with all the wild cards - necessary for making Canastas, so I was like way ahead. But! M is known for her fight backs and she got awfully close to beating me. :O) Gotta keep on your toes.

Moving on, not a lot to report, I didn't update yesterday because I've fallen into this one day on, one day off thing, but I'm pleased to say despite feeling rather lazy I got off my butt and went to the gym, good for me! Oh! And it went well with the pyschiatrist who gave me some more tips and I've also arranged to to see him in three months rather then the six we've been doing. :O) With any luck I'll be able to work on my anxiety and cut down on the panic attacks. It would appear that I naturally breath a little faster than is normal, which makes it rather easy for me to start hyperventilating, which is the enemy of the panicky person. So I really should work on that...I need to listen to my mindful breathing app before I go to sleep. Although I neglected to do that yesterday because I got distracted by a fanfic - although not mine :OP I'm still working on it though!

I ended up going to be late though, which isn't doing my eyelid twitch any good, it's still going a bit...and I can't sleep in on Sundays since I go to church in the morning. So yes, better not stay up too late, even though I didn't get to watch my house shows this evening because I needed to watch the Bridget Jones' Baby DVD I got from the library, I was going to renew it because it's due tomorrow, but someone's got a hold on it, so...But I managed to do that so everything's coming up Moose! :OP

Right, on that note, I better be off (gawd, I've fallen way behind on the memes again, gotta do something about that). My one regret is I didn't get a chance to go ice skating...and also that I need to get my blades sharpened, man, it's such a long drive out there.

Guess I'll have to wait for next week.

Oh! And I almost forgot, whilst I didn't stay over at the M and Grandpa's, I did have dinner there, Grandpa had made spaghetti mince so we had pasta with a salad. Delicious!

For now, I bid you all goodnight!

11:33pm: What went down today...my abdominal area has been painful for some days now and unfortunately it all decided to come to a head today while I was driving to work in the form of a full-on panic attack.

Suffice to say, it totally sucked, I ended up scratching myself up, pretty badly too, I don't know why I do that...but it's a terrible idea. :O( I need to put some antiseptic on it because it's looking pretty ugly.

I also ended up pulling over at a Nursing Home and going in there to ask if I could sit down for a while. Because I couldn't get into contact with Mum and was freaking out. Why a nursing home? Well, it was the only thing there aside from private residences and there's nurses in there? Fortunately, Mum rang me back (turns out she'd been a a training day but there was a ten minute break) so she managed to talk me through it and I got to work (I thought I was going to have call in sick at the last minute!).

Eventually my abdominal pain settled down, it's still a bit uncomfortable now but I don't know if that's from anxiety or what? Probably anxiety...I took Buscopan earlier on today and it didn't really seem to work so...

Also, my left eyelid keeps twitching, it's been doing that all week...which might be sleep related or stress related.

On the upside...tomorrow is my appointment with my pyschiatrist so I can bring up all this stuff. I hope he'll have good advice for me!

And now, I'm off.

Goodnight all!

10:53pm: To always wear our seatbelt, because some petty crook just got himself killed because he crashed his car, wasn't wearing his and ended up going through the windshield. I still don't get how you can drive without a seatbelt on, how do you not slide off the seat when you have to break suddenly?

Moving on from automobile safety or lack thereof, I discovered that I didn't have work today after all, fortunately I realised this before I went there. Although I should have gone to Mona Vale today to buy a new heater for the fish tank, when I got home from Mum and Dad's this morning I discovered the temperature on the fish tank was reading well under 19 degrees. Fishenko's still swimming about, but I do worry about him.

I didn't get a chance to go shopping at all today, though I meant to after going to the gym this afternoon, however I oh so unhelpfully forgot to bring my backpack with me and thus didn't have my wallet. Do'h fail. Oh well, at least still had my homemade pizza left so I had something for dinner at least. However...I don't actually have anything for breakfast tomorrow, I discovered when I got home that my milk went off several days ago (maybe that's why I've had stomach pain the last few days...) and yeah it was getting quite cold when I got home from the gym so I didn't go down to the service station to get it.

Ugh, crap I'm trying to do my Russian but there's a phrase I'm really stuck on...and I'm running out of time, I need to get to sleep soon because I have to get to work with Mrs S fifteen minutes earlier than usual tomorrow so that means getting up earlier.

So yeah, I gotta wrap this up, LOL story of my life. :OP

11:02pm: Right now they're showing the ice show Plushy - and a bunch of other fabulous skaters - is in and I can't find a way to stream it. Boooo! Russian TV is really nice about this sort of thing (or perhaps they're trying to lull me into a false sense of security so they can hack my computer only to be severely disappointed by its content), but Japanese TV is a black hole when it comes to this kind of thing. Oh well, here's hoping some of it ends up on YouTube or whatever.

In other news, I'm confused as to why it's kind of too hot under the doona, but too cold outside the doona. WTF is this? Very annoying.

Moving on, I just realised the other day that I've been forgetting to write my positive note of the day! I'm supposed to be doing that so at the end of the year I can look back and see all the good things that happened in the year. I really must get back on it. I'm not sure if I should try to catch up on the days I missed though...my updates on Dreamwidth aren't really that descriptive so I might not be able to remember! I guess it could be good brain exercise.

Anyway! Work was weird today...in that mid-way through the shift the Librarian on Duty disappeared into the children's area I later discovered that some kid had thrown up down there and the poor Librarian had had to clean it up!!! OMG, I am so fucking glad I didn't get asked to do that, because let me just say no way, no way in Hell. I'd probably let myself get fired first.

Seriously though, the parent probably should have dealt with that, but I think they took the kid home which I guess is fair enough. Suffice to say I didn't go and shelve anything in that area after that.

And I gotta haul butt now, it's bedtime, but I haven't done my Russian yet! At least my writing is going well, yaay! :O)

On that note, goodnight!

11:17pm: Indeed, they had a tendency to slip today when I went skating, which is never good, after all I don't want to fall on my ass!

This time I got there just as the session was starting and aaaah skating on new Zamboni-ed ice is the best! So smooooth!

Speaking of skating, Plushy decided to be the legend he is and resurrect his most famous exhibition program - a strip-tease (panic not, he wears a muscle suit!) to Tom Jones's Sex Bomb. It's as hilarious as it sounds. I'm a bit bummed I didn't try harder to go and see these shows as I'm pretty sure this exhibition piece won't happen again. On the other hand I'd probably die from the thrill/second-hand embarrassment :OP

Still the lesson is...Plushy is more awesome than you. :OP

What else to report? Well, I got my laundry done, a day late and the pizza base so I could make my pizza also a day late.

I'm also thinking I need to get more zzzs - this is a common refrain for me, but I was quite sleepy as I drove home from the ice rink today and you know...driving when sleepy is a baaaad idea.

Which is why I have to wrap this up because I need to get to bed soon and also because my brain is not functioning right now, LOL. I wish I had a clearer head though I want to write more on my fan fic! It's going pretty well, although I'm not entirely sure I've picked the right tense to write it - did I mention this before? I think I started with the present and I keep falling back to the past. Obviously I'm gonna have to check this over carefully if I finish it and put it up. :O)

Anyway, I better be off now, hopefully I'll have a more interesting entry tomorrow.

11:02pm: So I was at the library volunteering today when I decided to take a look at the internal job postings because there are supposed to be some library positions coming up. So I did and I was most excited to see one for a Casual Library Assistant! I thought, OK so it's not full or part-time, but hey I should take what I should get.

Except...I've just realised, I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to have that position, it's been like a year since I've had a shift (although I did get called up briefly for one last September before they cancelled it on me), so do I need to apply for this? Should I just call up? Although the contact person is the Library Manager who kind of has a scary reputation, I don't want to sound like an idiot. Although, I guess it wouldn't hurt? It's not like they'd tell me to stop volunteering, I'm doing it for free! :OP

Moving along, I'm still working on the fan fic, it's going well so far, I'm wondering about my timeline though and if I should shorten it, 'cause at present it spans quite a few years and I wasn't planning on having the story be too long. Although it's not like I have to recount every little thing that happens, although I've been guilty of such things before.

What else to report...I feel like I'm forgetting something, but I can't think what, my flat is still clean (well it'd be a bit sad if it wasn't), I fed Fishenko today, cooked my fish, which was yummy, although sticking those two things together seems weird.

Maybe it's just because it's that time o' the month, annoying I tells ya, you should have seen me yesterday just before it showed up, I was dropping stuff and bumping into furniture and door frames. Hmpf.

Anyway, I better wrap this up, I need to get to sleep as soon as Murdoch Mysteries finishes.

11:12pm: Whoops, I haven't updated for a couple of days, which I totally didn't plan on, but I have a good reason! I've been writing a fan fic! It's going pretty well so far and man it's been while since the good ol' writing bug hit me. It's nice! Also in surprising news, I've actually plotted this one out mostly, which I usually never do, I hope it will actually work.

I kind of wanted to post it as soon as I finished the first chapter because I'm excited, but I put out a general ask on my Tumblr about it and one of my mutuals felt that it's better to have the story completed, just in case you want to change something in an earlier chapter. Plus, if you're going to do a chaptered story you probably should have it finished, in case you never do finish it. Nothing worse than an incomplete fan fic and I do actually have a couple of those myself. I mean I know how they end and all, but anyone who read it? Well I'm sure they're most disappointed. So get with the program, so let's hopefully avoid that.

Anyway, moving along, it was a good night hanging with my parents last night, well mostly with Mum since Dad usually turns in at like 8pm, we watched Have You Been Paying Attention?, ah so funny! I think I'll head over there on Monday nights, especially since after next week I'll be able to go to the proper bed in the spare room. Heh.

And it's getting late, and I really need to get my ass to bed as soon as Cold Case ends, because I've been staying up too late the last few weeks after watching it. So I literally need to be lyind down and ready to turn the lights out.

Not much else to report today anyway, although I did get some cleaning done, it's not quite to Mum's standard so I need to finish up that tomorrow before the Scripture class.

I've also let the deadline pass for that library job, but I'm not too bummed, like I said I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have got a call. I've applied to so many jobs in my life and to be honest I don't feel like wasting time apply for one I just don't have the skill set for. I am supposed to be applying to some jobs though, come on Moose get off your ass.

For now though, I say goodbye!

11:36pm: So I've got this solitaire app on my phone that has a daily game, which often takes me a while to solve, I have to do a lot retries, but the one from yesterday is currently being the biggest pain in the ass. Seriously, I can't figure it out! And I even watched the "This is how you win this hand" thing. Very annoying.

So the rain has finally decided to show up, which is a problem because it's sheet washing time, but I can't hang them on the line and I've got no place to hang them here in the granny flat so I'm not sure what to do. I guess I'll just have to wait until the sun returns but in the meantime leave them in the laundry basket.

What else to report? Not a lot! I Although the landlord did come by this afternoon to tell me that he's arrange to have the concrete in front of my granny flat replaced - I didn't think it was looking too bad but it does have cracks in it. He thought perhaps it'd be happening this weekend, but the weather being as it is I have a feeling that won't be going down! He also seems to be thinking about getting an awning put it, which if that actually happens I'll definitely need to pay more rent! I also need to spend the night over at the parental units when the concrete is poured because obviously you can't step on it when it's drying.

Anywho! I better be off, as always work calls tomorrow and I certainly don't want to stay up too late, depending on the weather I might go skating tomorrow but if it's pouring I'll probably forego it 'cause the roads I need to take look like they'd have a tendency to flood.

So on that note, goodnight!

11:23pm: Not anything about me for once but on the news tonight the son of the head of the Australia Tax Office has been busted for skimming money that should have been going to the tax office. Oops... A kid hasn't embarrassed his father in this country since the son of a cabinet minister wracked up a giant phone bill on his father's parlimentary account! Whoopsie.

Moving on, I took the bus to volunteering today, which is interesting because at the moment the bus drivers are strike, yet the buses here on the Northern Beaches all seemed to be running just fine. Obviously, it wasn't an employee-wide strike. Apparently the State Government is annoyed by this, saying it's disruptive, to which I reply "duh", what's the point of having a strike if it's not going to inconvenience people?

In other news, the Orange Cheeto of Doom is having a bad week, to which I say "HA!" take that, you dickhead. Although of course he's having a big old tantrum over the whole thing. What a piece of work. I do remain concerned that even if he is thrown out of office Mike Pence will become President, and he doesn't sound much better - in fact in many ways he sounds worse. Bloody Republicans.

And, I've just noticed how late it is, I'm meant to be asleep now, a couple of nights ago I felt like total crap and I'm pretty sure a lack of sleep might be the culprit. So yes, I better head off!

10:45pm: Well that sucks...I was all set to start my application for the library technician job, but as I read over the position description I realised...well shit...I don't actually have the skillset! This is a damn shame and also a bit embarrassing since I mentioned I was going to apply and now, well I look kind of dumb.

I had no idea library technicians were supposed to know about creating programs for the community and knowing about reading advisories and all that jazz. But I suppose that makes sense, the Librarian looks over everything, the library assistant follows instructions and the library technician is the person in the middle. To be honest I'm not the sort of person who wants to work on complicated projects and shit, I'm too lazy for that kind of effort. I probably shouldn't say that though...

Moving on, I did get the other stuff I wanted to do today, like go to the gym and go shopping - I was out of cheese! While doing that I decided I'd try my hand at making something new for dinner, beef stroganoff. I've had it before of course, but not in some time! I got the idea from Mrs S who had it for dinner last night (she has it quite often actually) so I got the sauce and fetticine and cooked it up tonight. It was pretty good! I should add to my repitore!

What else to report? Well, I haven't finished cleaning which is the story of my life because I'm a lazy ass :OP but seriously, I need to pick up my game because I'm pretty sure Mum will be visitng the place tomorrow and also it's pretty uncool to leave clothes and stuff on the floor. Although I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't know how that stuff ends up on the floor, I don't remember putting it there.

Oh! And I don't have the photos, but yesterday when I went to the mall to collect Mrs S's new portable oven I went to the Pop Culture shop there...and they had Pusheen stuff! I couldn't resist! I bought a pencil case and the small regular Pusheen plush, they're both sooo cute! Although I probably shouldn't be buying stuff, but sometimes you gotta treat yo'self as they say.

Anyway, I better wrap this up, I have to get to bed soon (although, honestly I should be in bed now, I'm not gonna get my 8 hours!) and trim my fingernails again...why the Hell do they keep growing so fast, meanwhile my hair is taking forever to grow out. Annoying.

Right, off I go! Goodnight all!

11:27pm: Indeed! I finally got around to making a card for the occasion! I pride myself on my homemade cards, but I've been slacking on them lately. But I made one for Mum, yaaay! Although not for my little bro, who's birthday was yesterday. I thought I was going to see him at the Mother's Day Brunch at my Uncle's place but alas he's sick and wasn't able to come (sick for your birthday, that suuucks), so I called him to wish m a belated birthday. I left him a message at first since he didn't answer, he called me later though.

Sadly the weather was not very nice today, all rainy in fact when I drove over to my uncle's place it was totally bucketing down, I couldn't even hear the radio over it! Luckily, it let up but it was still pretty dreary.

However, work at the library was still pretty busy because it was Code Club day, which is a monthly computer thing that is popular with kids - there were thirty of them there this time! However, my feet were positively aching by the end of the shift. However, they're fine now...so I don't know if this is a sign of an issue with the shoes or if I'm just adjusting to the orthodics or what? It's puzzling I tells ya! The shoes are stiffer than the ones I had before, so maybe I just need to break them in?


What else to report? Not much, which is good since it is getting late and I should be getting ready to hit the hay and since I'm at my parental units' place I need to get the couch ready to lie on :OP

1. What is your occupation right now? How long have you been there? I have two, three mornings a week I'm a personal carer for Mrs S, I've been working for her for nearly two and a half years now, wow! On the weekends (and a shift here and there) I work as a library assistant in Mona Vale and I've been there for...nearly two years. Niicce.

2. Favorite rock band. Ever. EVER? Man that's a tough one...do The Corrs count as rock? If not I'm gonna say The Beatles.

3. What are you listening to right now?
A house show Mum recorded, we enjoy watching the house shows together on Sunday :O)

4. Last person you spoke to on the phone. What was it about? The little bro, about his birthday and is badly time sickness!

5. How old are you today? Or make up a question. This one bites. Can't think of another question so I'll answer this one, 33.

6. What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? Figure skating for the win!

7. What is your favorite drink? Iced water...or iced chocolate.

8. Have you ever dyed your hair? Nope, I'm too lazy to do it myself, too cheap to have it done at the hair dresser and I wouldn't want to mess it up and be stuck with it!

9. Favorite food? CHEEEEESE!

10. What is the last movie you watched? Finding Dory on DVD.

11. Favorite day of the year? Oooh, that's a toughie, I'll say Christmas, because hey it's Christmas!

12. How do you vent anger? Not well, mostly with yelling and crying. :O/

13. What was your favorite toy as a child? My imagination :OP Also my dollshouse.

14. Living arrangements? (Of course your pets count. Geez!) I live in a Granny Flat with my fish, Fishenko. :O)

15. What was the last thing that you cried about? Uh...you know I can never remember, I mean I remember crying, but not what it was about.

16. Who is the friend you have had the longest? I guess it'd be Edith? But we're not so much in contact these days, so I'll say Zep. We've known each other since I was about 13! Edith too, actually, so yeah!

17. What did you do last night? Hung out online and watched house shows.

18. What are you most afraid of? Throwing up.

19. In how many areas of your country have you lived? What's your favorite? I was born in Canberra and lived with my family for five years in Dubbo, which is in the country and of course here in Sydney. And despite my feeling when we moved there I gotta say Sydney has been the best. (Although Australia's a huge place, and I've only lived on the east coast!)

20. What is your favorite flower? (Ugh. Quite the note to go out on. But hell, we steal the questions. I guess you get what you pay for.) I love red roses! :OP

Okedoke, that's my cue to exit, it's ten minutes to midnight!

11:18pm: Yep! I finally got around to going ice skating today! Although they've apparently changed the session times again, luckily I still got my hour - well 50 minutes - but I'll have to keep an eye on that. I think maybe it's changed because they're having ice hockey matches at the rink now, indeed, the teams were there getting ready. They were kicking a soccer ball around outside to warm up, just like Plushy does, which made me LOL.

I also had some awesome luck when I went to the Jay Jays at the shopping centre...the had the white Pusheen t-shirt! And the beanie! Sweeeet! They only had large and extra large t-shirts left, so I got the large, which is a bit long on the arms - because it's actually a long sleeved shirt, rather than a t-shirt. Not a lot I can do about that though because the shirts don't show up on the shops website anymore. I suppose I could go hunting for a medium shirt in another Jay Jays - I think there's one in Chatswood, but I don't feel like driving all over. Also I've all ready worn the large sized one and got some chocolate on it. I can't be trusted with chocolate, I tells you. Also, oversized stuff is in these days, right? :OP

So yes, ice skating! That was fun as always! There were a lot of people with their own skates there today, which was interesting, I wonder if they've all been watching the SBS figure skating highlights too! :O)

Although, I think my skates might need sharpening soon, I didn't move as smoothily as I have been previously...only downside to all that is going to the skate shop takes aaaages. Maybe I should avail myself of the skate sharpening service at the ice rink - although it's not actually on site, you have to leave your skates there and collect them at a later date. Not sure if I want them out of my sight for that long. :OP

Anywaaay, moving along, I have to keep this entry short (again) because tomorrow is Mother's Day and the maternal side of the family is having a get-together at my Uncle Sam's place, which means I can't lounge in bed in the morning.

Not a lot to report, although my feet were sore from work today, I think it might have been my toenails - which I trimmed when I got home - at least I hope so because otherwise that means my podiatrist-designed shoes are not super comfy! At least they were only twenty bucks!

I actually did stop at the clearance shop that's on the way to the ice rink which sells Homey-Peds (which is a brand of shoe for the comfort-seeking shoe wearing), I was hoping I could get a new pair of the shoes I use to have - they were nice! - but alas no luck there.

I also remembered to buy new fish food, turns out the weird bugs in my old canister of food are weevils! Because one of the ingredients is flour. Gross. I'll have to keep an eye on the new canister too, because it has flour in it as well.

I'm also relieved that despite the weevils, Fishenko seems none the worse for wear from the flakes. He's swimming around his tank right now actually.

On that note, I better haul butt, I need to sponge my new Pusheen shirt, damn chocolate bits and then get myself to sleep.

Goodnight all!

11:38pm: Yes! On the one hand still no luck on the pinstripe pants front, on the other...I got some new work shoes for a bargain price!

The latter is important because as mentioned I went to the podiatrist's today, although I miscalculated how long it'd take me and ended up being late - do'h! - luckily I was able to call ahead and the person who had the appointment before mine arrived early so we swapped them around. Anyway the podiatrist took one look at me walking and declared my orthodics needed immediate adjustment, and also that my shoes weren't the best. Which makes sense I've had them for some time and really one is meant to change shoes once they start to wear down.

So before going to my volunteering at the library I popped into this shoe shop which as far as I've seen is sort of an outlet where shoes are cheaper. At first I didn't see any good deals, but then I saw a little basket where all the shoes were twenty bucks each! And there was a nice pair in my size specifically designed by podiatrists for foot comfort! Niiice, huh?! I wore them to the library and they've proven to be must comfortable, yaaay.

In other news, not much, and I've procrastinated on this update here as usual which means I gotta run, because there's work tomorrow! Plus I'm sleepy. :OP

Sorry for short entry syndrome, LOL!

Goodnight all!

11:28pm: Pinstriped pants that is...in my size. Today Mum and I had to meet with Dad at the solicitor's office to sign a document cancelling the contract for the apartment we originally were going to buy and I decided to take a look in the two second hand clothes shops in the shopping area there.

And there were pinstriped pants there! Like five or six of them and none of them were my size! Well fuck, how bloody annoying! Once again I ask, where have all the pinstripes goooone?

Moving on...more news on the job front, some new library technician positions have popped up! Hooray! They're full-time and don't seem to be temporary so I definitely have to apply for those. There's also some other jobs I can apply for although once again I'm being a lazy butt here. I tell you, after years of job searching you just end up being fucking over it. But! I need to get my head in the game.

What else? Well, I realised that I left Mrs S's hair turban (you know those things you use to put up your wet hair after you wash it) outside! Aaaaaah, I felt like I was forgetting something when I left and sure enough I did. She's gonna tell me off for that :OP

Yaaawn, I didn't get enough sleep last night because I'm a dumbass, and it bit me on the butt this morning when my alarm went off, because I stopped it, shut my eyes and then opened them again twenty minutes later! Cripes! I ended up being late to work! Which was not good because Mrs S had an appointment in the city and thus had to get a move on.

Speaking of which, I have an appointment with the podiatrist myself tomorrow, which ties into the above and means I need to get my butt to bed. Plus, my brain is losing its ability to think.

So yeah gotta sleep.

Goodnight all!

11:09pm: Which usually means I have to restart my laptop because I've tried going into the settings when this sort of thing happens, but I haven't been able to figure out what the deal is.

Anyway! I have exciting news! I finally did it! I went to the Aquarium shop in Manly where Dad used to buy his betta fish and got a nice greenish one whom I have called Fishenko. He's swimming around happily in my tank as I type. I am a bit worried that the heater and thermometre I put in there will start floating around, they've got suction cups on them but they don't seem to be suctioning like they're supposed to. Very rude.

Moving along, what else to report? Not much...I did finally remember to call the podiatrist and make an appointment, it's for Thursday at 11:30. Hopefully any issue with my orthodics will be fixed there, since like I said I feel like they might need to be readjusted, although my hips feel better now, yay!

Beyond that...not much going on in Mooseland, tomorrow though I need to apply to some jobs, because Mum's getting on my case about that and if I'm ever going to live in the apartment I'm planning to spend decades paying off I need the dough! I may have left applying for the secretary one a bit too late though...because I suck like that.

Annnd I was meant to do some Memes...but the mouse issue makes that a pain in the ass and it's a bit late to start on any right now, so I'm gonna do the lazy thing and skip it.

Oh and in closing, I'd like to thank the people of France for not fucking themselves over and electing the crazy ass right-winger. Although as I understand the guy who won doesn't actually represent a party...which seems to be quite the oversight when he has to fill 500 positions! How's this gonna work, seriously? France's political system does confuse.

Right, I shall be off now! Goodnight all!

11:18pm: My person! I must have overdone it at the gym...at least on the leg press machine because my hip area was most sore today especially when crouching down to put books away at the library. And I think it might have had a knock-on effect because my lower back started hurting too. Then my shoulders...and now my neck. Son of an ass. Suffice to say I didn't end up going ice skating this afternoon, boooo!

It could also be my orthodics, I still haven't made an appointment to get 'em checked out, which could be screwing with my muscles too.

So...yeah, with this general discomfort I'm not much in the mood to update, but I felt I should because...er...I dunno. :OP I thought I had something to update you all about but I guess I don't really. :OP Although I'm watching my house shows and OMG this kitchen has a red sink?! What the actual Hell? I didn't even know they made such things! Cripes, it's as ugly as you'd expect it to be too. :OP Oh well, at least the taps aren't red...if they were I'd be really creeped out.

Oh yeah! I did see my friend who lives nearby at the library today! That was rather exciting, she's mentioned that she often comes in, but I seem to be busy most of that time so she doesn't say anything. But I wasn't doing much this time so I was able to say 'hello'. Nice. :O)

Right, so I'm gonna wrap this up...and hopefully my person will feel way better tomorrow, because otherwise owwwww.

Goodnight all!
