anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
10:46pm: Because they are! I may have mentioned this before, but they're livestreaming the Junior Grand Prix and the YouTube channel says you can set a reminder for it, but all the times are wrong! Which is weird because I'm signed in as an Aussie...or am I? I should check that I guess!

Anyway, quick entry because not much to report, just a normal Thursday, except I didn't have to work at the library this afternoon (although I will be tomorrow). I ended up sleeping in and getting to my volunteering rather late LOL, but hey I got there and that's the important thing. :OP

Moving on, the mouth guard feels quite strange and is hard to get out, but I have to say...my jaw certainly feels a lot less tight in the mornings, so I guess I do clench my teeth in my sleep. Although now I wonder...will I need to wear the splint for the rest of my life?! That doesn't sound fun at all. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

What else? Not a lot, I was supposed to print out this picture of lamb stew for Mrs S - so she can put it in her recipe folder, except I don't know exactly what kind of lamb stew recipe she has. There's a whole lot of different types.

Anyway I have to go to bed, so I better wrap this up. Tomorrow is set to be 28 degress and Saturday even hotter at 33! Yikes. Better dress appropriately on Saturday so I don't end up getting overheated.

Whoops forgot about this entry and now I really have to go..I'm falling asleep!

Goodnight all!

11:38pm: Well, I know what the deal is, it's a blatant way to try and get more money out of fans by having them buy a whole bunch of boxes to try and get the thing they're looking for.

Doesn't mean it doesn't totally suck!

Of course, you can always go online and buy the thing you're looking for, but it's quite a bit more expensive (not as expensive as buying twenty boxes, but still). However, I can't really afford to do either...well I can, but I certainly shouldn't because not only did I have to pay that Centrelink bill - maybe I should have tried to get out of that :O( - I owe tax again! I haven't actually submitted the tax form yet, but that's what it says and I want to know how the fuck this keeps happening?! I'm sure I've filled out the forms properly and I'm not claiming the tax-free threshold from more than one employer and I don't make enough money to have to start paying my HECs debt back (maybe I should though, because the interest is starting to build up), so why do I constantly owe over $1,000 every tax year? It's super annoying, plus I have to dip into my saving and that money is for the apartment stamp duty.

Suuuucks.

In other news, I totally forgot that I agreed to do a library shift tomorrow afternoon, which is great moneywise, but unfortunate because I've only been to the gym once this week. If I'd remembered I would have gone yesterday or on Tuesday. Bah humbugs!

And I've just noticed how late it is, dang, I've barely written any more on my fanfic, sigh. But, I must go to bed otherwise I'll be tired tomorrow and that won't do at all.

And so I say goodnight!

10:25pm: And it kicks me in the ass in the form of a nasty headache at the end of the day, which means I haven't written a single word on my fanfic. Sigh!!! Don't leave me, mojo, I love you!

But! I do have exciting news, first off my Viktor Nikiforov Nendroid arrived! OMG, he's so cute! And he looks perfect next to the Yuuri nendroid - please observe.!

Also! As promised a photo of Fluffshenko the Llama. Isn't he totally adorable? SO FLUFFY!

Although speaking of shenko's I was rather worried about Fishshenko this morning he's looking a little a drab...also he was hiding behind the heater in his tank. I thought he was dead actually! But nope. His fins don't look as full as they used to. I hope he's OK, I changed some his water, I've been slacking on that. Honestly me, get the program! I've just seen him swimming around so perhaps he's recovered! I think maybe I've under fed him a bit? Hard to know with fish isn't it?

Oh well, despite the headache I have been enjoying the Junior Grand Prix skating there's been dancing, pairs and now the ladies! There's been an Aussie in each (and in the men too, except I wasn't able to watch that live) although alas our Junior World Champion pairs skaters juuust missed the podium. Ah well, it's early in the season.

Anywho, beyond that not much else to say except it would appear to be ant season again, shiiit, I hate those buggers. Could think I've still got my ant poison from earlier in the year. But seriously get outta my house you nasty things.

Right gonna wrap this up here because the ladies are skating as I said and it's hard to type and watch at the same time!

Good luck to the Aussie there (who trains at the rink I go to!) and goodnight all1

11:35pm: In typical style Centrelink has decided to be an absolute pain in the ass and ask me to confirm stuff that happened years ago, in one case more than FIVE years ago. Like for real?!

Even worse, because I don't have bank statements or payslips from that long ago I can't do it online and instead have to call those people. Centrelink is known for being absolutely useless when it comes to answering the phone. People have been on hold with those people for hours. Son of a bitch. I got other things to do!

Anyway, in less irritating new, Mum's back! She managed to make quite a mess of what time her flight was so at first she said she was coming in at about 9am then it was 7am and then...back to 9am! I guess her phone didn't take into account the time zone change.

This meant that I didn't actually need to go over and stay at my grandparents place last night, but I'm glad I did. M and I finished our Canasta game with M managing to snatch the win, do'h!

Anyway Mum was picked up without a problem and the library shift this afternoon went quite well too :O) I finally got around to putting my plastic bags in the recycling bin at Coles.

And lastly...I've forgotten what I was about to say..oh yeah, turn out I was missing winter clothes and they were in a box in M and Grandpa's garage, I've got them back now. Although winter is almost over, although it was pretty cold today so I think I'll still get good use out of them.

Anyway, I better get moving, tomorrow's going to be busy with my pyschiatrist appointment and calling Centrelink ugh. Wish me luck!

11:50pm: By work I mean write and by conditions I mean my digestive system deciding to be a complete asshole. Why you gotta hurt at such inopportune moments, gut? You suck and I'm offended.

I'm also starting this update way too late, do'h! Not that I have much to report, except...the landlord came in while I was out today (I gave him permission) to fix the tap...problem is...he didn't fix it and he also put the knob thing back weirdly, now it doesn't match the hot water knob, I have to turn them in two different directions! This is really confusing, seriously! But, I'm not sure I can really bring it up with the man, it's awkward. I'm starting to think I should just pay for a plumber to come and fix the dang thing myself. Sure, it's technically the landlord's responsibility but I'm getting a Hell of a good deal on rent here so, you know, maybe it's all fair in the end.

What else to report, well, I did spend quite a bit of time on the phone to Dad this evening, he was at Newtown, getting the place ready for the new tenants is proving to be quite difficult and poor Dad keeps having to do stuff! Also the last tenant or maybe the one before that did something weird to the internet and now he can't seem to connect. I tried to talk him through it over the phone, but no luck. He did talk to Mum later on though and when I called her myself she said that the new tenants who have just moved in seem to be a bit more tech-savvy so fingers crossed they can figure it out. Otherwise I'll have to go over there after skating tomorrow - I have to go to Macquarie Centre tomorrow because my beanie is being held at the shop for me!

Anywho, I should head off to bed because work calls tomorrow and all that jazz. I really hope I'll be able to write tomorrow! Come on me, I can do it, LOL!

For now, goodnight!

11:39pm: Well, according to my calendar that time o' the month is meant to be here and I'm certainly feeling the symptoms I usually have, sore legs, confusion, clumsiness, lower abdominal discomfort...but no actual period. Very annoying, 'cause I just know it's gonna sneak up on me at some point and that's never pretty.

Anyway, I'm tired and feeling ditzy, but I do have very exciting news from yesterday...

My Yuuri Katsuki figurine arrived!!! I made a Tumblr post about him. Seriously, as Marty says "All the best stuff is made in Japan", the figure is totally awesome! With three different faces and a whole lot of different arm and hand parts you can do all kinds of things with him! I've got him set up next to my bed. Although I did get a slight scare last night when I thought I'd lost his glasses (pft that'd be the story of my life if I didn't have to wear mine all the time), they didn't seem to be anywhere and I was about to give up when I finally spotted them. Phew!

In other news, the Government is being a bigger pain in the ass than usual...if they're not undertaking an expensive and completely unnecessary non-binding postal vote about marriage equality (seriously this is the biggest BS ever), the PM is deciding that if North Korea actually does something to the US our army will be going in.

Doesn't give one a lot of confidence in the future. :O(

However, I can't think too clearly about this now as I'm super tired and need to get me some zzzs, so er...enjoy the pretty pictures of my new figure at least, LOL!

11:23pm: OK, this is gonna be a short entry! But you'll all be happy to know my performance review at the library went really well today, yay! :O) Except for my slight problem with timeliness (although at least I'm usually only 5 minutes late at the most these days :OP), but my supervisor is very happy with my work with keeping the missing items shelf under control and how I assist patron's with issues. Go me :O)

In less good news, I think I started eating my lasagna when it was too hot because my throat feels weird like I've burnt it or something. Then again that could just me being a wuss, since we all know that's how I roll. :OP

And most unfortunate, the e-book I was reading needed returning, but when I tried to reborrow it I couldn't! It took me about ten minutes to realise why, my library card has expired! Shiiit, how'd I miss that? I didn't actually, I even noticed it last week when I was at volunteering but then forgot about it. And I hadn't even finished the chapter I was in the middle of. Bugger.

I'll have to wait until I finish at Mrs S's tomorrow to do anything about it. Boo.

Speaking of which I gotta head off now because I need my zzzs!

11:34pm: Indeed! I couldn't remember when I last updated so I just checked and I haven't since Friday! Dang.

Well, first things first, on Friday I got a call from the HR people while I was at the gym, no dice with the job, apparently my lack of experience with children's events and my somewhat simplistic answers to interview questions (I'm not entirely sure what that was all about) dooed me. I say boo! But on the other hand there was no promise of it been made permanent and even if it did I'd have to reapply for it. Screw that shit.

I wonder though, if there's going to be an attempt to break up the amalgamated council, several of them have been fighting the State Government and the premiere has backed down! Of course, this doesn't affect the all ready merged ones, but the Pittwater people are still seriously pissed about what's gone down. But it'd be quite a bru-ha-ha.

Then there was the get together on Saturday, although I got a call on the way there from Mum, apparently Dad wasn't well! It was bad enough that he called the home doctor to come and see him. Mum thought he might have to go to the hospital for tests! Fortunately it wasn't as bad as all that, apparently Dad had been worried he was having a stroke or something, but it turned out to be a stomach virus. He's much better today - which I know because I'm here at the parental abode for my usual Monday night staying over, despite Mum being away.

He cooked my dinner so er...I hope he's properly recovered, gulp! It was a yummy dinner though sausages, boiled potatoes and beans.

But the get-together was good! I had no idea Ben lived so close to the big shopping centre, we went down there and I went to Jay-Jays, but the Pusheen water bottle I wanted wasn't in stock. Bummer.

And then we hung out and chatted as we do. :O) And had a dinner cooked by Ben - an interesting concoction of rice and sausages, LOL.

Anywho, I'm rather sleepy so I bet head off now, gotta get my beauty sleep!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

Goodnight all!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
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.

Brain, what's your deal? LOL

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.

So for now, goodnight!

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!

For now though, goodnight!
