11:28pm: So for the past few days I've continued investigating tablets and I thought to myself, you know what, maybe I should buy one of those cheap 7 inch tablet they have at Officeworks, it comes in all sorts of different colours and I could use it for apps and type my fanfic on this laptop etc etc.

Except, I kinda forgot the main problem with that tablet, it's got some weird shit going on with the screen, like...it's weird? It's got this kind of glare to it and it's nearly impossible to hold it at an angle that doesn't cause it to look weird. It's not easy on the eye at all, boo.

So, now I have to take it back...again, not that they know I bought one before, but dang what a waste of time, grumble grumble.

I think I'm just going to go back to looking at second hand tablets, or see if I can get the old Motorola to work properly in the meantime, damn thing's so slow these days. But it's not like there's not enough storage on it, very strange...Maybe that's just how it goes.

Right, what else to report - well, I got an email today from Mona Vale with a whoooole lotta shifts for the upcoming months! Wow, what luck! I can take all of them pretty much...except for the two I'm already working, LOL.

In less good luck, it would appear the library job that I'm going to apply for was originally advertised only internally...I don't remember seeing it, do'h! So now it's being externally advertised, so there's gonna be a heap of applications. Of course, I'm going to call the contact person and let them know I'll be apply and so on, although there is one concern...namely that one of my co-workers who I was working with today had rang up to ask about the job and it sounds like they want someone who'd be willing to do Storytime for the kids. It's not a necessary part of the job description yet, but ewww.

Also I wonder how the days will work out? Plus it's for Manly Library, which is interesting, I wonder why they didn't mention it it in the ad. Eh, whatever.

So time is running short so I better wrap this up - but I need to remember to call a few people on Monday, namely the HR Department about claiming some of my gym membership, I keep forgetting to do so and I need to know if the GST needs to be on the thing or what.

Also, I should call my friend! I saw her in the library today actually, but we didn't have enough time to talk, but I've been too much of a hermit lately.

Right, it's ten minutes to midnight and once again I've been late to get to bed so I shall take this as my cue to exit!

Goodnight all!

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!

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!

11:09pm: 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!

10:28pm: Or at least I do. I dunno if it's because it's that time o' the month or what but I've got some terrible abdominal discomfort and a niggling headache that won't go away despite the fact I took some period pain medication. I hate it when pain relief doesn't work because I can't take anything else for like another hour, by which time I need to be asleep because I have to go to work a bit earlier than usual tomorrow. I sure hope I feel better because otherwise this will suuuck.

Anyway, the get-together with the friends last night went super-awesomely! Except my other friend couldn't come, boo I so should have asked her along earlier, although I'm not entirely sure she would have come anyway, it was a long car ride out there.

Ben's new place is very interesting, it's located directly across from the hospital he works out, he can literally just roll out of bed and get over there in five minutes! I suspects he gives himself more time than that though. :OD

So yeah, I did plan on making this an actual entry, but my discomfort makes that impossible, so instead I'll have to short-entry syndrome you all again. Although before I go you'll all be pleased to hear that Plushy did excellently at his show in Italy, he's got the moves, man, he's got the moves. Note to self: Must go seem him somewhere somehow.

Now, I'm off, let's hope my various aches and pains are gone tomorrow, I got shit to do.

11:41pm: Yes, I am trying to keep a schedule of updating every second day, because...uh...I dunno, I'd rather do every day, but you know me, I get distracted so easily.

So I didn't update yesterday, so today is supposed to be the day, but I've got this niggling headache which hasn't gone away even though I took some Neurofen a few hours ago. Rude! I took two tablets and everything! What's the deal? I am wholly disappointed.

Anyway, yesterday I had planned to do some stuff - maybe even ring my friend up and see her, but the weather turned from sunny to rainy half way through the day and then my eyeballs decided to go all dry and I was just in a whole lot of discomfort, grumble grumble.

That time o' the month is due today so I keep expecting it to sneak up on me any second now, but thus far it is elusive. More rudeness!

But, I did at least get some cleaning done, although it was not to Mum-standard, however poor Mum still has her cold so she couldn't be bothered to tell me off too much, LOL. I shouldn't be mean though, because she decided to go over my resume for me so I could email it to a pharmacy - there's an ad in the paper, which is lacking in any detail whatsoever so I've been procrastinating on it. Then, the case I got for my external hard drive decided to break (man, I'm having no luck with those!) and it has all my updated resumes so the whole updating was being a pain...

So I ended up emailing one of my older resumes to Mum and she sent a new one back to me, I'm not entirely sure about it actually...it seems to break all the rules of resume making I was taught during my years of job hunting. On the other hand, Mum has no problems getting work whereas I flail around so who knows. I had to add more info to it of course and Mum wanted to see it so I still haven't emailed it yet. I should check the Manly Daily to see if the ad is still in there...

What else to report? Not much, I went to Warriewood Square hoping to find some cheap Easter eggs, although like I said they don't leave them on the shelf for very long these days and I had no luck, boo! However! I remembered that IGA had eggs for quite some time, being a small independent supermarket, so after I went out to get a new case for my external hard drive (only 20 bucks!) I went via the one near my gym and there was indeed eggs - or rather bunnies to enjoy, yum! (Although the Red Tulip ones don't seem as good as these days, or at least the smaller ones don't, weird).

Righto, it's getting late now and I need my sleepy times so I shall be off!

11:30pm: So, before I headed off to the gym I decided to go outside and take a look for anything that might have caused the broken bathroom window and would you believe...I found it! A golf ball in the grass very close to the bathroom window. Which means the neighbours behind my granny flat were fooling around and hit a golf ball hard enough to smash my window!

The thing is? Why the heck did they not come over and speak to the landlord? They broke a window! Fucking rude as Hell, man. You can't just break shit and not tell anyone.

Of course, I'm not about to head over there and confront them...I did plan to call Mum to find out what she thought I should I do, but I never got around to doing that. And I still haven't cleaned my house! I totally have to do that...I always say that. I so fail.

Especially considering that I didn't even do that much today, in fact I basically did nothing until I went out to the gym. In fact I probably should have done something with myself because I was feeling kind of down in the dumps today, I'm pretty sure I forgot to take my medication which might explain some of that. Still sucked though.

Well, things will be returning to normal soon though because Mrs S's surgery went well and she'll be back home from the hospital tomorrow afternoon! Which means I'll need to go over to help her unpack and then on Friday I'll be back to work as normal. Which is good news, if I don't have work to do I tend to vegetate here in my house too much.

I'm also cheered up by the fact Plushy is apparently planning some sheninigans - his first foray into coaching is apparently going to involve the 2014 Ladies Gold medalist, LOL, Plushy you crazy. Something to keep me interested in competitive skating since he's not coming back himself.

Anyway, I better wrap this up now, midnight is coming and I need to clean the Hell out of this place tomorrow before Mum comes over to check it out!

Goodnight all!

11:53pm: Because after nearly a year I've...somehow...managed to lose my Up Move! This suuuucks! And it would seem to be because of my new black shorts! I have no idea why but the magnetic holder thingie tended to fall off them. I'm not sure if it's something to do with the material or what? Anyway, I thought I'd managed to solve the problem after it fell of a few times at Mrs S's but when I got home after a day out in Dee Why (I went to the doctor about my thumb) it was gone! When I looked at the app it said it was last seen in Dee Why at 1:53pm! D:

Of course that doesn't necessarily mean it didn't fall off somewhere else, but after calling Mum and Dad (I popped by their place on my way home to help Mum with her iPhone - even though I don't know shit about them) and having them confirm it wasn't there, I got in my car and headed back to where the app said. Alas, I couldn't find it. Of course...I can only imagine if it did just fall off my pants and land on the pavement someone would have picked it up or thrown it out. :O(

My last hopei s that it might have fallen off when I was in the library or at the medical centre, I'll have to call them both tomorrow, otherwise I'll be ordering a new one from Ebay.

In the meantime I've taken out my old activity tracker from Aldi, although it's taking a while to get the app up and running on my phone since I haven't used it in aaages.

Oh wait, here it goes now.

Anyway, I was in Dee Why because I had to take something of Mrs S's there as soon as I finished work and decided not to go home afterwards - although it was a three hour wait. I spent some of that time, shopping, painting over the scratch on my car, in the library, before going to the medical centre.

Alas, the doctor couldn't tell me what if anything was causing my thumb soreness. Except she was pretty sure it wasn't anything serious. It's really weird though, it only hurts if I physically move it by itself, when the doctor used her hand to move it or even if I did it didn't. Which the doc agreed was some weird shit. All that I can do for now is keeping putting the anti-inflammatory gel on it.

So, I better wrap this up and hit the sheets, zzzzs are needed as always!

11:42pm: So in the daylight this morning the car didn't look nearly as bad as I feared, although the scratches are still most unfortunate. My poor poor car. I did actually try to use my auto paint to cover them, but I dunno how well that'll work, however, I'm in no position to spend any money fixing it, especially with the letter I got today.

Yes, when I got home from Mrs S's and the Warriewood Square and saw the envelope in the mailbox my spirits lifted! Until I picked it up and felt how light it was and then saaw it was from the Office of State Revenue.

They didn't overturn my speeding ticket! What a bag of dicks, I have sped one other time during my whole driving life (and there were no cops or cameras around soo they don't know that), it was 7 minutes before the school zone time ended and the fact that $180 is a financial burden on me (more than a shift's worth) fell on deaf ears. What a fuck-up.

Obviously, I'll have to pay it since I'm certainly not going to court to argue about it - it'd cost me even more money and time.

So yes,not the best of luck there.

However! Because my place wasn't very tidy and Mum had to go shopping for some stuff, as well as it being unseasonably warm today instead of coming over to the Granny Flat, we went to Warriewood Square where I finally found a pair of shorts suitable for work (it only took going to just about every clothing shop in the place!) and got my medication - which I hadn't been able to purchase before because my low-income card has expired so now I have to pay the full subsidised price, which is $26.

Note to self I owe Mum $150 all up now...but hey! The shorts were only $12, nice.

Right, better wrap this up and hit the hay, I've got a library shift and volunteering tomorrow so I need my zzzs!

Goodnight all!

PS Oh I almost forgot, I had the weirdest dream last night - I was on a cruise ship with my two brothers, my parents and another person I didn't know. Although shit got rather weird when Dad seemed to be drunk or something yelling at people and my brothers, the mystery person and I couldn't find our muster point during the drill.

11:36pm: As we all know I've been waiting for my new bank card to arrive, I checked the letterbox when I got home from Mrs S's, but no luck, so I was most pleased when the landlord's wife came later in the afternoon with a letter for me! At least until I opened it.

It was a speeding ticket! From last Tuesday! Fuck! I hadn't realised that in my rush to get to work on time I'd gone 50kms in a school zone. That was 10km over the speed limit!

FUCK! I already had and paid that parking ticket I got on that day, but a $189 speeding ticket?! I may as well not have turned up to work! I make $22 an hour and I worked for four hours that day...which if my maths is halfway decent means I'm out of pocket $100!

And just to rub salt in the wound, the time of the speeding ticket was 9:23am, literally seven minutes before the school zone ends! If I had have been actually late I would have been better off! In fact I would have been going 20kms under the normal speed limit of that road!

I was going to suck it up and pay it, as painful as it is, when I noticed that on the back you could apply for leniency if you have a clean driving record - which I do - although it also seemed to suggest that wasn't possible if it was a school zone related fine, it wasn't really clear. The letter also said that less than 4% of applications succeed. But [personal profile] nashira and her Nan said to me over Facebook I might as well give it a go.

Seriously, though, I hope I have some good luck here, I know a speeding fine is supposed to be expensive to stop you from doing it, but when you make minimum wage like me it's a total kick in the face. Not to mention a bit unfair, if kids are still going to school at 9:23 they're running pretty bloody late.

Anyway, aside from that I don't have much else to say except I did pop over to the Disability Service that I'm employed through now to drop off my timesheet and enquire about possibly getting more hours. They're gonna look into what the have and get back to me, I wonder if I'll be able to do any of them, working as a carer is quite hard work and a lot of responsibility so...

And, it's coming up on midnight so I better head off, I keep undersleeping, it's no good for me, dang it!

So I shall say, goodnight!

11:20pm: Well, maybe not everybody, but my digestive system sure as Hell does. I have no idea why, but this morning I got horrible reflux, it hurt so bad I could barely breathe! Then my digestive system decided to get in on it with much growling and bubbling sensations...OMG it sucked. And worse of all it's one of those stomach pains that won't go away, I took something for reflux, I took Neurofen, I took an anti-spasmodic, and all of that has hardly made a dent on the pain. Ugh.

The only thing I can think of is that I can't eat grapes anymore, because that's the only new thing I've eaten in the last few days, although the cheese slices from Aldi taste a bit weird (not sure if I should try to return them or what?), but on the other hand it could be stress and anxiety about my upcoming move. Because moving is stressful! And to add to the stress is the fact that my travel time is going up like 500% (I kid you not), I drove with my stomach pain today, but those were fortunately very short trips, I'm not so sure how I'll go when it takes half an hour to get back home instead of five or ten minutes.

But I guess it's not all bad news today, the Fed-Ex after a rather nail-biting four sets has progressed to the Quarter Finals of the Australian Open - hooray! :OD He seems a bit rusty these days and needs a few sets to get warmed up, but once he gets going...

Also I did get a yummy dinner of hamburger and salad courtesy of Dad, so that's pretty good too.

All this reminds me that I need to keep up with my positive notes for each day so that by the end of this year, I'll have 365.

Anyway, I better wrap this up, hopefully a good night's sleep will be just what I need.

11:29pm: Which is the channel with Letters & Numbers and the ice skating on it! I think I mentioned that I was able to pick it up when I plugged my aerial directly into the TV, but I also can't record from that (what's the deal with that anyway? Why would you want a TV that doesn't let you record stuff directly into it? Bloody annoying). I went to Bunnings today to discover they'd all ready taken all the Christmas stuff away and there were no suction cup light holder thingies available, so instead I bought a ready to plant flower and this connector cable since I thought I could two of my cables together to make it longer. However, it turned out I already had a longer cable, so I need to return it. But my Blu-ray/HDD player still won't get SBS even though it gets all the other channels. Bah! I shouldn't need to buy an entire new player just to get a channel?

I suppose I could ask the landlord if he can get SBS on his TV and if not see if he might call in the antenna man - which he was going to do when I thought the antenna outlet didn't work in here at all. Although, he might not do it for just one channel.

Anyway, moving on from my TV technical woes, I ended up having quite a busy day. After work with Mrs S, where my cupcakes were well-received by her husband, I to pick up the ingredients for lasagna that I was missing as well as some milk and fizzy drink for Mum - who saw me driving to the shops and since I planned to go over to the parental place for a swim - I agreed to get.

As it happened, we didn't get to go swimming after all - boo - although I'll be going over tomorrow after work at the library and popping by the Mall to get bath towels for Mrs S and Mum says we can go swimming then. We better. :OP

In other news, the Fed-Ex is back and at the Hopman Cup! He won his round against the guy from Great Britain (it wasn't Andy Murray), but the match between the ladies is taking longer than expected, which is no good for me, because afterwards there's a mixed doubles match. I've never seen Roger play any sort of doubles before and it would seem I probably won't this time either since it's coming up on midnight and I can't stay up too late. Guess them's the brakes, but seriously, even when something happens in Australia time zones can get in the way!

On that note, I shall wrap it up here, once again making no attempt to catch up on Memes, I gotta start updating my journal earlier, because I seriously miss them!

11:37pm: So I got together with my friends after work today after all! Although we didn't end up going up to the lighthouse because the only way to get up there is a 25 minute walk and it was indeed hot as Hell today. Also there were a lot of flies...A LOT! Like outback Australia amounts of flies, they were everywhere! I can't remember the last time I've been around so many of them, it was very annoying and one went up my nose a bit and left me all sniffly.

Also I couldn't go swimming, which was also a shame and I was quite bummed to discover when I got home that despite having put on sunscreen my upper forearms were a bit burnt. Damn! I could have sworn I paid attention to that area. :O( I guess not.

Anywho, while my friends (one of whom is a friend of Ben's who I just met, but is cool) I stood in the water up to my shins though, which was very nice since it was such a hot day! I attempted to make a seal in the sand, but it ended up looking more like a beached whale! I did make a sand castle too but I haven't loaded that photo on my laptop yet and I don't really have time now because II need to get my butt to bed!

Once we finished swimming we all made a dash for the showers at the surf club and Ben's friend was nice enough to get us some ice cream while Ben went and got the car, which we had ended up parking quite a distance away - near where the lighthouse is.

And, time's getting away from me, so I better wrap this up, but I'm pleased to report I finally got off my butt and went down to Aldi and got my cheese (among other things) although I left it quite late and most of the other shops were closed so I couldn't buy anything for my secret Santa, whoops. Gotta get onto that soon!

For now though, it's bed time!

11:43pm: OK, it's not as serious as all that, I needed to clean my house up after all, but she said she'd be coming by just before lunch today, but as you can guess from my title there, she did not.

Which was only an issue because I was waiting for her and was hiding from the hot weather so didn't go out shopping which I really should have done because I was out of cheese and then ran out of toilet paper. Oh dear.

As it happened I ended up heading over to the parentals because the proper documents for the studio apartment finally showed up (they had my parents' address wrong before) and the plan was that we'd have the next door neighbour over to witness us signing it. Also, for dinner - since I don't actually have anything...which isn't a hundred percent true I could have made some Alfredo.

But I was getting worried about the heat, thinking that perhaps my air-con wouldn't be up to it - although by the time I left my granny flat the weather was cooling down anyway - so off I went! We were supposed to be having pies and left over chicken for dinner, but the pies were coming from the retirement village's cafeteria and as it happened they were having that tomorrow not today so Dad and I had hamburgers instead. Good eatin'!

Alas, the papers didn't get signed because as it turns out we need to do it front of a Justice of the Peace which our neighbour isn't. Instead I'll be popping in on Thursday and we'll head down to the local Pharmacy.

Okedoke, gotta haul ass to bed, it's almost midnight. Have to keep my proper sleep up.

With any luck I'll be able to see my friends tomorrow, fingers crossed.

Oh and I also had to got the parental place so I could get a roll of their toilet paper, which I did before returning here, LOL.

10:00pm: Yes indeed, my ears were terribly blocked! And now that they've been syringed I can hear so much better which makes me think...I must have really had my TV turned up loud the past few weeks. Man, I should be glad the landlord didn't complain.

However, just before heading off to the doctors I got a nasty headache, I took one Nurofen after parking my car, but alas I dropped one of them so ended up only taking one...I thought maybe it'd work, but clearly it didn't. I took two about an hour or two ago but it hasn't really done jack. Also my lower abdomen feels decidedly icky too. So yeah, not a good time here. I'm most annoyed that the pain killers haven't worked and it's not like I can take anymore. I guess, I should just head to bed...which to be honest might be behind all this...As I said last night I need to start work an hour early today but alas I didn't go to sleep an hour earlier. So I'm lacking in sleep.

So I need to get myself to bed at a reasonable hour tonight, since I do have to get up at my regular time to drop my car off to get its service done.

With my general malaise I didn't end up going to the Mall which I had planned to do, or had my tyres look at, but I was thinking that maybe the missing chunk was from way back when I first got the car and hit the kerb rather hard when I was trying to pull over to answer my phone (it turned out to be for the library job, whoo!) in which case it doesn't seem in danger of going flat any time soon.

Anyway, time is getting away from me since I was watching The Last Leg so I better wrap this up.

Hope I feel better tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

9:26pm: Seriously...I went swimming today at the pool that's at the Retirement Village my parents live at and as soon as I did...bam! Blockage in my right ear. I've been having a few ear issues the last few days, but it didn't seem too bad...now though I've got that horrible fullness sensation in my right ear and it suuuucks.

I put some ear drops in there, but that can take days to work, but seriously I can't imagine putting up with this for any sustained period of time. Unfortunately for me I have work tomorrow so I won't be able to get it tended to first thing. Although last time I went the doctor I saw didn't want to syringe it for me, so even if I do go nothing might happen. Dang it.

Oh well, I suppose it won't have to put up with it too long tonight because I need to go to bed very soon as Mrs S needs me to come in an hour earlier than usual tomorrow because she has to get to an appointment by 11am at the bus takes about an hour and a bit to get there. Which means I need to go to bed an hour earlier. Which is soon now because I got distracted watching Lateline on ABC (the Aussie one, not the US one), they're talking about Down's Syndrome and what happens when the pre-natal tests is positive for it. They invited a gentleman with Down's Syndrome to the show, which is nice, although it's a bit awkward to then discuss the termination of Down's Syndrome babies right in front of him! Although he seems to be level-headed about it, good for him.

Aside from the ear issue, not much else to report, although I still haven't got around to playing Sims 3 yet, but I have a good excuse! I went to the library staff meeting this morning! It was interesting and once again I was advised that I shouldn't let my fear of 12 month contracts stop me from applying to jobs with more hours. I guess they have a point...also why were we discussing my career goals at an all-staff meeting anyway?

Although there's another performance review coming up before the end of the year, which...is going to be awkward after the time issues I've been having. I better make sure I'm not late again so I don't have to explain myself!

And finally, I'm a bit worried about my car...I went to Warriewood Square after going swimming with Mum this afternoon and as I was leaving the parking lot I managed to mount a kerb and it made quite a loud noise. When I got home to take a look a chunk was missing from the front left tyre! There was no air escaping as far as I could see, but it looked pretty dodgy. I hope it doesn't suddenly burst when I'm driving around or something... I also wonder if I need new tyres...man my savings aren't going to be so healthy if I have to fork out for that.

Anywho, I gotta do my Russian before I turn in so goodnight all!

11:12pm: So, the latest figure skating competition is in China which means that I can actually watch it!

Sadly I forgot about it so missed my favourite ladies skater, but then I found a live stream from British Eurosport to watch the men and I was thinking "Great!"

However, British Eurosport have decided for reasons unclear to me to declare open season on poor Plushy whenever another Russian skater pops up. Like at first I thought I was just being oversensitive, but it's getting seriously uncool now. I mean they basically accused Plushy of just rocking up last minute and demanding to be in the Olympics at Sochi, which is a huge ass lie.

It shits me because they used to love Plushy, they used to overflow with praise when he skated and suddenly he's persona non grata. That's just shitty, if they had never liked him that wouldn't bother me nearly so much, but to suddenly turn on a person like that is totally uncool.

Although I shouldn't be so pissy, I mean it's not like Plushy is gonna watching the British Eurosport coverage of a Grand Prix Event, and even if he did he probably wouldn't give a shit. But that's what happens when you're a creepy fangirl like myself.

Anyway, moving on, it was hot today! I instantly regretted wearing my long pants to Mrs S's this morning and actually considered going home to change into shorts rather than going straight to the pet shop in Mona Vale. But I decided not to risk getting sidetracked and then not heading to the gym so I just cranked up the air con in the car :OP

When I got to the pet shop I realised that I'm pretty sure I didn't buy the gravel siphon from them because the box it came in had a price sticker on it whereas none of the other stuff in the place had stickers. They did have the same brand of siphon though so I could confirm that mine was the smallest available. One of the clerks though showed me how they got the siphon to work an it was different from how I tried so I'm gonna try it out next time. If it doesn't work, though...well I've probably wasted $14 because I really don't think I'll be able to return it without a receipt.

At least I got to the gym though!

And it's almost midnight so I better head off, I haven't done my Russian yet!

Goodnight all!

11:36pm: The Super Moon that is! The best time to see it was last night, but in typical Aussie style the sky was quite cloudy especially on the horizon so the moon couldn't be seen until it was high up.

I was hoping to get at much better view tonight as the sky has cleared up nicely! According to the news moon-rise was at 8:18pm, but when I went outside to look I couldn't see anything! I went out a bit later, but still nothing. :O( I popped out just now and the moon was there, and quite bright! But it didn't really look any bigger than usual, because once again it was high up in the sky so there was nothing to compare it to.

I am disappoint! However, I have realised, a bit late of course, that there is a hill behind where I live and I'm pretty sure that's blocking the moon. On the other hand...maybe it's just not that big here in Aus? Like the angle might be off or something. Like when we get a lunar eclipse and it never really seems to be as spectacular as hoped. Rude!

Anywho, I didn't update yesterday because there was much discomfort yesterday and I was starting to get rather worried...and then just after midnight that time o' the month finally showed itself. Hmpf, I shouldn't say finally because it's not that late, but I could have done without the headaches. I wonder if I shoulbd investigate this...

Ooo, I just noticed Plushenko the fish was lying on the bottom of his tank, but he was just resting! Phew, I was worried there for a bit because Mum and Dad's goldfish Roger died the other day, which really sucked, because he'd been so healthy last I saw him.

This does remind me that I'm supposed to do the water change...with any luck I'll have time to do that tomorrow before I need to head to the school and then on to M and Grandpa's.

And I can't believe I almost forgot to mention that I went to work today! The Library called me in for a shift yesterday afternoon. However, I didn't make the best impression with it as I ended up being late! Most of it was my own fault, but I wasn't helped by a jerkass behind me who when I spotted a parking spot wouldn't let me back up and then had the nerve to steal it when I moved forward with the plan to turn around. What an asshole! I could have kicked his car when I walked past it from where I ended up parking, far, far FAR down the street, but I'd forgotten what his car looked like by then.

Anyway I was late enough that the librarian on duty actually pointed it out! She said she didn't mind, but it's not a good look.

Aside from that work went pretty well, except for when this old lady showed up and got quite agitated, as it turns out she's a known 'pest' and the Council refuses to deal with her so I shouldn't have given her the council's phone number. Having said that, you'd think she'd have it all ready?

After work I decided - what the Hell - I'd go ice skating and hope the traffic would be OK at 4pm when I'd be heading back (that's generally the start of peak hour) and not wait for the last hour of the session.

It was lots of fun! :OD And there were a lot of good ice skater there for their training sessions, ones that can do the jumps and spins and all that jazz. Inspiring to watch for sure! Also, the rink is nowhere near as busy at that time of day. So maybe I should go during the week instead of Saturday afternoon.

And, yikes I've just seen the time! I better wrap this up and hit the hay!

Goodnight all!

10:04pm: Even though Australia's like 13 hours ahead I still felt the need to begin updating this entry at this historic time to celebrate the temporal conjunction point of the entire universe...aka November 12th. :OP

Not that anything particularly momentous happened today, except that it's super hot today and it's almost that time of the month which I'm sure is the reason I got such a nasty headache this afternoon. I took some paracetamol for it when I got home from work (I forewent ice skating today unfortunately) and it didn't do shit! Very annoying because I had to wait for a few hours before taking some Nurofen, although considering they've put out these new paracetamol/nurofen tablets on the market maybe I didn't? Although I wasn't actually sure I had any nurofen, but lucky for me, I did and now my poor head feels much better.

Anywho, moving on, still loving the new laptop! I notice that the keyboard is the sort where food can't get in between the keys, which is a relief because as one of those terrible people who eat while typing so now I don't have to worry about the keys getting stuck! Or maybe I could just stop eating over my keyboard, LOL. :OP

What else to report, well, I've made the cupcakes for Mrs S's party tomorrow. I hope they like them. I shall make the frosting tomorrow morning and then frost the cupcakes last thing, otherwise it tends to harden up too much, at least that's what I've found.

Note to self, I need to ask Mrs S if I can borrow her copy of Microsoft Office because I didn't realise this, but it wasn't actually included with my laptop, do'h! And no way am I forking out for the new Office it costs almost as much as the laptop to get it! Geeze, I just need Word and Excel I'm not asking for a lot. (I suppose I could get one of those free office programs, but I don't feel like it, so I won't. :OP)

Finally, before I get to the Memes...I've forgotten what I was going to type! Because of the headache I've been left super sleepy and rather ditzy. Um...oh! My new sandals...I'm somewhat uncertain about them because I kind of forgot that I can't wear superflat shoes without my orthodics in them because my feet end up hurting. Hopefully, I'll be able to wear them then, because the shoes do seem a little loose, but the next size down was too tight so...

OK, so Memes...man I've let them go for so long I have no idea what the last one I did! It seems it was from July so...

Away We Goooo! )

OK, that's the Saturday 9 for July done! And now, my eyelids are drooping so I'm gonna turn in. I don't think I've been getting enough sleep this week and it's finally hitting me.

So goodnight!

11:44pm: Yes indeed! It was a close thing! So close in fact that if I hadn't picked up 100 extra points for cutting nearly the correct number of cards (each player gets 15 cards each at the beginning) M and I would have had to play another hand. And then I wouldn't have got home in time to watch Letters & Numbers which would have been a shame.

So, go me! :OD

In less fabulous news I'm just about to lay down to sleep (unsurprisingly) and I seem to be having heartburn, um ow, and very inconvenient, especially since I don't think I have any antacids in my house anymore. Maybe I shouldn't have had sausage for dinner, especially after the big lunch I had at M and Grandpa's. Grandpa cooked fish, chips and celery in white sauce, very delicious. And there was ice cream, blueberries and that choctop sauce for dessert. Although I suppose that wouldn't directly impact on me getting heartburn right now.

Anywho, what else to report? Oh! I got onto my friend, turns out she is here in Aus so I've arranged to go over to her house tomorrow after work for some friend time, yay! :OD As I've mentioned before I've really been falling down on the seeing friends thing, so this is great.

Right, I better be off now, sorry about the rushed entry, but you know how it is with my mad-cap life. :OP
