11:52pm: Right, OK, I have quite a few things to report, but nowhere near enough time to write about it...

First thing's first, I got myself an adorable little two-in-one tablet laptop at JB Hi-Fi yesterday! It was the last one so I got it at a discount, yeeess! However, it asked me to update tonight, which I tried to do only to have the thing throw a complete fit and now I've had to to reset it. Boooo! Not taht I had anything important on it but what a pain in the ass. I think I'll try upgrading it to Windows 10 next time, if possible. Windows 8 is notoriously crap if I remember right.

But OMG, I need to get back into my fic but I keep allowing myself to get distracted! Coe on get with the program me.

On a final note before I have to get my butt to bed and explanation for the subject title...I meant to turn the stove off earlier on, but instead I turned it up or at least not off completely. With it being winter and all I keep the door to the bedroom/living area closed so I didn't realise until my fire alarm went off and opened the kitchen door to find it FILLED with smoke! There wasn't a fire or anything, but my sausages were ruined and I had to open the doors and windows to clear it.

So yeah...massive fail there.

Right so I'm off to bed, at least I can say that I sped-read the latest chapter of the fanfic that's holding the Yuri on Ice fandom in it's thrall. So I can sleep easy. :OP

Now I say goodnight!

11:25pm: Damnit, despite having cleaned the kitchen sink and whatnot any time I leave something out that's not completely rinsed and cleaned off a hoard of motherfucking ants invades! Now I guess this just means I should clean everything up, but I did rinse it pretty well...and my dishwasher was full so I couldn't put the saucepan in there.

Also, I'm most annoyed by the fact my ant baits don't seem to be working. Although...maybe they've just run out of...er...poison stuff, I think they only last for three months and I've had them for longer than that. Or maybe I should try and get the spray...

Except, I haven't got my card yet, so right now I only have fifteen bucks or so to my name at least until the bank card arrives or I go to the bank to withdraw cash. Except, I don't think I'd be able to get to said bank, it is open on Saturdays' but I'm pretty sure if closes before I finish work.

Anyway, I'm sure you don't really care about ants...but I don't have much more to say...except I made a bit of a mistake today when I was doing the laundry - I forgot about my car key in my pocket so it went through the machine! No wonder there was so much noise! I think the key has survived, the little light on it still goes off when I press the buttons. Also, I have just remembered that unlike my mother's car key I can still use this one like an actual key so even if it is dead or the battery is screwed up I can still get in my car to drive to work tomorrow!

Speaking of which, I've totally stayed up too late this week which is really no good for me, so I should actually get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight! And this time I still have to finish up on my Russian before I turn in! So...

Goodnight all!

10:49pm: Yes indeed! And I got to have pancakes over at the parental house this evening as well as dinner! :O) Good times indeed.

In less good times, my left knee/leg hurts...why? I have no idea, I think it just wants to be an ass. Or perhaps I've become an old man and it's reacting to the weather or something, LOL (In all seriousness though, it's been all over the place...cloudy, pouring down with rain, sunny and now...back to pouring down with rain again).

Anywho, I've got to get to work a bit earlier than usual tomorrow with Mrs S so I better take us back to...

11:48pm: My air-con is letting me down again, which really sucks, because it's the only thing I've got in here...I really should have got that bedside table fan, because I'm sweating and feeling thirsty and generally uncomfortable. Plus I can hardly concentrate on this entry!

I'll make it brief, work went well although it ended up getting very busy and then the printer decided not to work, or rather the computer's wouldn't communicate with it properly, which was a problem last weekend which I thought they fixed. Grumble, grumble, well at least the tech person will be in tomorrow, so fingers crossed she can solve it.

Also people were very slow to get out at closing time, good thing I'd set my recorder to record the skating on SBS! However, I didn't hurry home to watch it, instead I took my pyschiatrist's advice and headed for Macquarie and ice skating. Or rather to the Skater's Network, which is where I get my skates sharpened. As it happened, my skates did not need to be sharpened, which rather sucked because it was quite a drive! I ended up buying some new laces for my skates to make it worth my while.

Then it was back to Macquarie to buy new towels for Mrs S (somehow some bleach got on the one's she had, from me...but I have no idea how, because it seems amazing I managed not to get any bleach on myself, a minor miracle in fact!) and then skating time!

I discovered something quite interesting...it would appear that I'm a clockwise spinner, that is I find it far more natural to move in that direction. However most skaters are anti-clockwise spinners, so that's pretty hilarious. Typical me, I'm sure. :OP

Not that I can spin a lot, of course, but I can do one revolution, which is how I figured this out...and it sure does explain why I couldn't figure out to do the turning to change direction thing. Although...I'm sure I remember learning to do it both ways?

Ah well, anyway, very interesting!

And now, it's almost midnight so I gotta go, bed calls.

11:47pm: I refer to the Spit Bridge, which opens a few times per day to let boats go through from one part of the harbour to the other. Thing is, I'd forgot what time it opens and it turned out that 11:15am was one of them, which meant...I got stuck waiting as I tried to get to the pyschiatrist's office for the 11:30 appointment.

Suffice to say I was late, booo, which kind of put an end to thoughts of catching the last of the lunchtime ice skating session.

Speaking of ice skating, I got a reply from the cruise line, who told me they did not recommend taking my own skates on board because blades longer that four inches are not allowed on board. I mentioned this to my pyschiatrist, who encouraged me to write back mentioning how even though there's complimentary hire skates available, if you've got your own pair its much easier to use them and the email didn't straight out say it was forbidden only not recommended. He spoke about the need for assertiveness, and I have to admit I am rather a push-over, which makes me wonder...maybe that's why I'm not getting jobs, I'm not expressing enough confidence.

Speaking of jobs though...I got an unexpected phone call today, they're doing interviews for the Inter-Library Loan Officer's position and I have an interview next Tuesday! How exciting! Fingers and toes crossed everyone!

I also had to make an unexpected trip to the doctor because my referral for the psychiatrist had ended, and without one I don't get any money back from Medicare, that was a bit of a pain but I did make some purchases including a purple shirt! It's pretty much the same colour as the one I made! It has weird sleeve though, I'm not entirely sure how to work them out to be honest...hope I can though. Although I did tell myself I'd make my own purple shirt... I wasn't going to buy it, but I needed to spend an extra two bucks to use eftpos at Lifeline and I'd found some pinstriped pants that were $6 and this milk jug in the shape of chicken for $2.

However, I kind of made a mistake with the pinstripe pants...they're size 16! For some reason I thought they were size 8s and perhaps the reason they were in a second hand shop was because they were mislabled. But nope, so suffice to say they're a bit too big. Whoops. Ah well, I guess I could just give them away, it's only 2 bucks loss.

Right, better haul butt now, it's almost midnight and this Moose needs sleep!

11:40pm: Yes indeed! And I was planning to upload some of the photos I took, but I got caught up watching Roger Federer kick the butt of Tomas Berdych in the Aussie Open and now my laptop's touchpad has decided to act weird on me, so even though I've downloaded the photos I can't resize them, which really needs to be done because they're super huge.

Anyway! Good news! Despite the fact it was kind of rainy today Mum, Dad and I were still able to go to Cockington Green, and although Mum decided not to go in with us Dad and I had a great time in there! I haven't been there since I was like 3 or 4 years old and since that time they've added a whole new section of International minature models of things like Manchu Pichu and Petra. I got quite a few photos as did Dad although he needs to send those to me.

After Cockington Green we continued onwards to Aunt Chris and Uncle Lawrie's place where they were taking care of a number of their grandkids (and step-grandkids), but they have a big house so it wasn't too crowded or anything. We had lunch which was a BBQ, which was very delicious although I was sad to see that the salad contained no iceberg lettuce! It seems when Auntie Chris bought some pre-cut lettuce at the supermarket it didn't include it - uncool lettuce people, uncool.

Then it was on the road to Sydney once more, and it looked like the rain was going to follow us, but fortunately it let up and once we got into Sydney the traffic wasn't too awful except for a brief bit on the M5 - which I think is known as the shittiest road in the city.

Anyway, I best wrap this up since like I said my mouse is being an ass.

Hopefully I'll have more details for you tomorrow.

11:16pm: So I remembered to call up Officeworks when I got home from work and discovered that yes, my order was received and paid for it's just that stock isn't coming in until Monday a week from now. Which means I won't get my new phone in time for my birthday. Aww. Hopefully though I'll get it before I go away with Mum and Dad to Canberra, although I won't be able to use my data probably, it doesn't extend to rural areas, or at least not the last time I was out of the city.

Tonight I also took down most of my Christmas decorations, although I'm keeping my Santa Ball up for another night because I do love him, he's so cute. It's a shame to have to put him away, but I guess them's the brakes.

So I got through my rather busy day all right, although I was rather embarrassed when having gone to Aldi and purchased a few things after I finished at Mrs S's I had to go right back in because I'd forgot to get more margarine! Which was pretty much the reason I'd gone there in the first place! Then I was almost late to work because I got distracted untangling my Christmas-tree shaped lights - which I manged to tangle after holding them for like three seconds! I'm pleased to report I managed to untangle them.

I am sleepy though! And arrrrgh, still behind on Memes! OMG, will I ever catch up? I guess that will remain a mystery....

Also, I've received some SMS replies from my friends about getting together for my birthday, but alas both of them are busy not only on the actual day (which is a Tuesday so I'm not too surprised about that) but that weekend too! Aw man, what if no-one can do anything? I'll have to celebrate just with my family. I guess when Ben gets back things can be done. Of course, there's a few other friends who haven't replied yet, so perhaps something will go down.

Although that reminds me, I need to RSVP Grandpa for the Australia Day get-together...

Okedoke! I better wrap this up and hit the sheets, once again I'm gonna miss Fed-Ex doing Mixed Doubles, dang time zones.

Oh well, I've got the ice skating on SBS to look forward to tomorrow as well as library work, so yaaay!

For now, goodnight!

11:19pm: In this case my first world problem is having to get up to stop and then start the recordings I've made on my DVD/HDD Recorder. I managed to forget how to pause it to take out adds so for the longest time I just kept them in there, but obviously I don't want them in when I'm recording them using my laptop's TV recorder. Hence the getting up all the time, it's super annoying.

Oh well, at least my foot feels better, because otherwise it would really suck having to do that.

Right now I'm recording a documentary on 9/11, which is a topic I tend to avoid because it's a distressing thing and it's so sad to think of all the poor people involved.

Moving on, it was a busy day today, what with Mrs S in the morning and the library in the afternoon, I do wonder if I've become to used to not working 7.5 hours a day because I was pretty bushed by the end of it all!

And I've got work tomorrow morning as well! :OP Which means I've once again managed to leave updating this journal entry way too late and thus have no time for Memes! Booo!

I do have some good news, while I was at Mrs S's this morning I discovered to my dismay my ice skate charm was no longer on my necklace chain! I'd taken my chain off to go swimming, but I had definitely had it when I put it back on afterwards. So I could imagine where it could have gone.

Then I remembered that last night I'd been in the bathroom when I heard the sound of something hitting the tiles, at first I thought it was my Up fitness tracker, but it must have been my charm! Sure enough when I got home and looked I discovered it on the floor. Phew!

Oddly enough I didn't see how it had fallen off...because the little loop part was closed...maybe it had been open and I stepped on it this morning. I'll have to keep a close eye on it.

Okedoke, now I gotta wrap this up and hit the hay!

11:30pm: Yes indeed! And my big bro, sister-in-law and little niece have headed off back to Japan. Ah, it's been good having them here, although it's not like I saw them all the time, but it was fun while I could. In fact, just yesterday I had the experience of holding a baby, which I haven't done before, because as I've mentioned before perhaps, I don't really want to hold a baby because they seem way too squishy and the thought kind of freaks me out. However, yesterday my big bro was trying to show me how to do something on his i-Pad and I didn't do it right so he was like "Hold the kid, I'll fix it."

So, I got to hold a 10 month old, who fortunately wasn't too squishy, although she was heavier than I expected :OP. Suffice to say though, I don't have much of a maternal instinct, so I didn't end up all "coo-ey" and what not. I'm just happy to report my niece didn't poke me in the eye, LOL!

So, today was another day off from work at the library for me, yay! However, I realised this evening while checking my shifts that I've put my hand up for not just Tuesday and Thursday this week, but Wednesday and Friday too! Which normally wouldn't be an issue, but though my foot is feeling a lot better (even after all the walking yesterday) I'm a little concerned that this might lead to a flare-up. There's not much I can do about that, though...except not wear those enclosed sandals I bought since I'm not entirely sure they've got proper arch support. Here's hoping the anti-prespirant I got for my feet will hold up with the other shoes.

Anywho, the point about having the day off is that I went and saw my friend who wasn't able to come to the New Year's Eve fireworks today, we watched some John Oliver and Galaxy Quest as well as having lunch with her parents. It was fun! :O)

I also made the cupcakes for Mrs S's husband's birthday tomorrow, although I need to finish the frosting before I go to bed, good thing I can get up a bit later in the morning because of the public holiday (which means I only do two hours instead of four) since I won't finish by midnight!

I did make an unfortunate discovery when I came home from the parentals before heading off to my friend's place, I'd left the fridge ajar! Which meant my butter was soft for the cake, but there was no way the milk I just bought on Friday was salavagable. What's really annoying is that I came back to the Granny Flat to collect a number of things before leaving on Saturday and at no point did I notice the fridge door wasn't closed properly. Man, I hope the landlord's power bill won't be horrifying.

Right! I better be off, though I was hoping to get back into the swing of things re: memes, but once again time calls me away.

10:39pm: Indeed! A Merry Christmas to all and to all a Merry Christmas! Hope yours was/is as fun as mine was. :O)

So I woke up this morning at the grandparental abode and at least got to show them what I put in my Christmas stocking and also to open Mrs S's present, since it was a small one. I turned out to be a very nice locket with room to put a photo in. Except I'm not sure what photo that'd be! I've probably mentioned this before, but when I was a kid I had a heart shaped locket and the picture I put in there was...a drawing I made of Garfield, LMAO! Probably won't do the same with this one.

Anywho, as I think I might have mentioned yesterday, contrary to my belief the Christmas Party was being held in the Clubhouse in the retirement village my grandparents' live in, rather than at my parents' place. This meant that it was quite easy indeed for me to get there, which was great! What was not so great was I felt rather icky with a stomachache, kind of nauseous which was not fun! Eventually I took some Buscopan even though I had no idea if it was mid-ovulation related pain or what. Guess it was digestive though because not long after taking the Buscopan I felt way better, which was great because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to enjoy the delicious Christmas lunch or the swim in the pool afterwards! Good times, good times.

It was nice to see Emma, my niece again, she's a super-well behaved baby and barely cried at all despite the fact the room we were in was rather echo-y and it had to be a long day for a baby. Unfortunately we didn't open the presents until the end of proceedings when she did get tired so I didn't get to see her open my present. However, I am going over to the parentals tomorrow after work with Mrs S and perhaps they haven't opened it yet so perhaps I'll get the chance then.

I kind of forgot to take any photos though! Booo! Dad did though so perhaps I can get him to send me a few. :O)

Anyway I have to go to bed soon because I stayed over with M and Grandpa again, but I don't have the correct clothes for work tomorrow so I need to pop by home on my way to Mrs S's. Which means, even though I start an hour later tomorrow I pretty much have to get up at the regular time.

I got some good presents! From my Secret Santa - who turned out to be Grandpa - I got a green sunglasses case with money to buy the sunglasses I want to get (although this does mean I'll have to go to the mall at some point. Oooh deaaar.) From my godmother I got some nice perfume - Tommy Hilfiger (sp), I put some on after swimming in the pool, smells good! From the library a cookbook of desserts, whoo!

My family enjoyed the presents I gave them, which I sure hope didn't melt when I left them in the car while at church yesterday (well, at least Mum's and the little bro's, Dad and the big bro got non-melting stuff), although the stuff in my stocking was OK so I have hope.

Right, best be off now, although I so need a new phone...my one just sucks ass right now. It's so slow and I can't get my Simpsons Tapped Out to work half the time. I've got a phone in mind too although apparently it'll take two weeks to show up at Officeworks, but eh what can you do?

Anywho on that note, I shall be off! Goodnight all!

11:35pm: So the Men's Free Program of the Russian Figure Skating Skating Nationals is on right now, and I've just been treated to the sight of one of the weirdest costume choices I've ever seen. This chap came out dressed in what appeared to be a throw back to children's clothing in the early 1900s in BRIGHT ASS BLUE and then skated to music that had absolutely nothing to do with the costume! It was bizarre! He also had clear duct tape on his skates.

Oh wait, someone at the skating forum I'm in has come to the rescue and explained it, apparently it's the same sort of costume worn in the movie his music was from, Django Unchained/ Good to know, because otherwise it just looked like everyone on the guy's team had some weird ass hallucination.

All the same it was some weird shit.

And dang, I've been so caught up in watching that I missed out completing my Russian practice for today. Damn.

In other news, I did some last minute shopping and managed to get all my Christmas presents only to discover I don't have any ribbon left to wrap said presents! Well, that is I had enough ribbon for three of them, but there's still the little bro's and Dad's to wrap. I guess I could just use sticky tape, but I can feel my mother judging me from here, LOL.

Anyway, it's actually past midnight now so I better wrap this up quick and get back to watching my Russians, they're not doing very well at all so far. I wonder if something's wrong with the ice.

11:32pm: Because there's too much of a dust build-up and get an awful blocked, itchy and seriously uncomfortable nose for my troubles. I've all ready used six tissues! And it would seem that I do breathe through my nose after all...because it feels rather hard to breathe.

On the plus side, the crazy folding method in the book I'm ready really works! My drawers have gone from being overfull to having space to spare, yay!

Oh! I've just remembered I've got that nose clear stuff - since taking anti-histamine tablets just gives me super dry eyes and a headache. I've just used it so hopefully it'll help clear my nasal passages since I do have to go to bed soon and it's hard to go to sleep when you can't breath clearly!

Right, I had a good time at the Volunteer Christmas Party today and got a certificate and a present, which I'm going to wait until Christmas to open (because I do love opening presents on Christmas morning), although I can safely say it's not another plant, which is quite a shame.

So...yeah, my nose sucks and keeps distracting me so I'm gonna wrap this entry up, but great news my new Christmas lights work! Hooray! Not sure if they'll last the whole night since it was still cloudy today, yay.

11:27pm: So I decided to give a hair removal cream a try on my bikini zone this afternoon after getting home from my parents' house. I bought the cream last week, but hadn't used it, but I figured this would be a good time to try.

Now, I've used a cream like this before and one side seemed to go OK...so I rather foolhardly did the other side figuring it would be OK (that and the fact that I didn't put the cap back on the tube and a large bit of cream escaped and I didn't want to waste it!)

Suffice to say, it was not, after removing the cream (which incidentally didn't take much hair off) I started getting a burning, itching sensation in the area and now I've been left with patches of rash on my person! I put some anti-rash cream on there but it was still uncomfortable to the point that I got my ice pack out of the freezer and put it between my thighs to ease the burning feeling!

It's settled down now, so I'm quite sure there's been no permanent damage, but still, ow. Fuck that cream. I had considered waxing the area, but with my unco-ordination-ness I thought it'd be a bad idea, but it might have ended up better than this. Or maybe I'll just fight the patriarchy (and my mother, who since I've been swimming with her has been pointing it out) and let nature be. :OP

Anywho, in other news, I installed my drawing tablet on my new laptop and discovered that the 'sketch' program that comes with Windows 10 works really well! Surprisingly better than then program that came with it. I need to get Photoshop on this thing though because I drew something this evening and had to colour it on that like an animal!

No time to do that now though, there's work tomorrow so bed calls!

Mum is also coming over to inspect the place so I need to finish my cleaning! Wish me luck there!

11:42pm: Sometimes my ovaries decide to be jerkasses and give me pain in the middle of the month, because apparently PMS and cramps aren't enough of a kick in the pants. So rude! It mostly behaved itself, but for about half an hour at work today I felt like I needed to lie down or something.

Although I couldn't quite tell if it was that or some sort of digestive thing so I ended up taking some of that anti-spasmodic stuff I have. It seemed to settle things down, but who knows that could have been a coincidence.

Anyway! After work I headed home to have a quick bite to eat - I ended up running late this morning with not enough time to pack lunch! I could have kicked myself for that because it's not like I woke up late or anything. I didn't even go ice skating!

But I had some lasagna and then headed off to church, I didn't end up going to Mum and Dad's place tonight because the little bro is coming over for dinner tomorrow so I'm going to say over Monday night instead, however I did meet Dad at church (Mum went earlier today). So that was fun! I didn't think he'd show up, especially when I got there and his car wasn't there, but as it happened he decided to take his scooter.

In other news, I have to hit the hay now, so alas this entry will be short and lacking in memes (it's been ages since I've done any too! I'm going to be behidn forever!), but I will report my house is still rather messy, however I have set up my Christmas tree!

11:42pm: Well, to be fair I'm probably not grumbling that much right now, but that title just called out to me. :OP In fact what I am is short on time...again.

But I did get what I wanted to get done today, except for finding some pinstriped pants! Why are there none around? I want to look professional when I go to work dang it.

Oh and the interview with the person at work didn't happen because they got called away for a meeting, I assume they didn't know about the meeting when we made the arrangements last week. Not to worry though, I just did my volunteering. We're meeting next week instead.

Speaking of volunteering, with Christmas coming up some Home Library Service patrons want extra items since there's less deliveries. Only one guy actually wanted extra items today, but damn son he's hard to pick items for! I basically spent a whole hour trying to find something for him! Which I didn't get through nearly as many selections as I usually do, boo.

I also got some reading done since I took the bus to and from the library, although I didn't get to Innovations to return something for Mrs S and hopefully pick up something else for her if it hasn't been sold out. Ah well, I guess I'll have to do it some other day.

11:32pm: So after work today I popped over to the Petsmart to ask about it, but I didn't have a very good picture of it on my phone so the sales person wasn't really able to help me much, for example is the whole thing supposed to be submerged in the water? Or is the little motor part with the propeller in it suppose to stick out? She seemed to think it should be full submerged so when I got home I attempted to do that, but the filter is too long and when I sort of nudged it down at an angle poor Plushenko almost got sucked into the propeller! So I lifted it back out again. Fortunately Plushenko was uninjured, I hope...he seems OK. Also of a worry when I put the filter all the way in the water some weird...stuff...came out, like dirt from the gravel, I hope that hasn't done anything bad to the water in the aquarium.

So the upshot of all this...it's still making pretty much the same amount of noise! Damn! And I can't take it out of the tank really because I'm quite sure it's working and I don't want to risk Plushenko's health and I can't seem to figure out exactly what type of filter it is so looking it up on the net hasn't helped. Most irritating.

Anywho, moving right along, I'm sorry to report I didn't go ice skating today, primarily because I have a blister on one of my right toes from the shoes I wore to the interview yesterday. I usually wear the shoes with stockings, but it was a bit hot to do that yesterday, and my right foot is bigger than my left so...blister. :O( And my ice skates are quite tight so I didn't want to end up limping, which I probably would have seeing as I'm a wuss. Also it's been rainy today and I don't really like to drive long distances in the rain.

So instead I came home and sat on my butt :OP but I caught up on my reading so that was cool. Although I haven't caught up on my memes, which is not cool.

Oh, wait I did do some shopping before heading home because I was out of cheese, and I also got myself a pair of watches from K-Mart, they're cheap but I've had watches from there before that are still working so...

Right, I better be off, it's almost midnight. LOL, the guy's name on this House Hunters International is Barkley, seriously? People these days. :OP

And now, I say goodnight!

11:17pm: And just as I posed that question he finally calls him 'Grandpa' on this episode I'm watching, LOL. The rest of the time though he calls him by his first name, which if you ask me is weird. Although having just typed that I'm again reminded that my aunt sometimes calls her own father "Mick" so, you know.

In other news...I was about to write something else and I've just forgotten what it was! Oh yeah that's right, it was pretty warm today, warm enough that I decided I needed to set up the air con. Unfortunately...it didn't all go to plan, first of all, the outlet tube thing doesn't reach the window properly, secondly when I was trying to open the window the adjusting wand thing for the venetian blinds got caught, but I didn't notice until it snapped. Fuuuck, now I have to figure out how to replace it.

Not sure what to do about the outlet tube though...I did sort of get it to reach the window, but the window opens out not up so there's no way to secure it there.

Annoying. :O/

Also annoying is that ever since I updated my Simpsons Tapped Out game it keeps crashing on my phone! This never used to happen, and it means I can't play it, quite the bummer. :O(

And oh shit, I just realised I totally neglected to send my Uncle Sam a birthday SMS! I guess I can do it now, although if he's all ready in bed it might wake him up...

Speaking of which I gotta get my butt to bed myself!

Goodnight all!

10:25pm: Not one I've been undertaking, no I'm talking about this episode of MacGyver where his company's idea of stress relief is going on a day long hike complete with crossing a disturbingly flimsy looking bridge. Worst idea ever, although what MacGyver's doing up there when he's supposedly afraid of heights, however the fact he climbs mountains and such seems to refute that. But then again that's MacGyver for you, LOL.

So, today I went over to M and Grandpa's after work for Canasta, unfortunately for me I hadn't realised that M was expecting me to call and confirm that I was coming. Because I hadn't she'd gone swimming in the morning and was heading off to have her rest when I arrived. Whoops!

Then there was lunch, which was very delicious, but took quite a while because that's M and Grandpa's main meal of the day, so by the time M and I got around to starting the game (that was another thing I managed to forget to bring the score of the previous game we hadn't finished) it was 3pm! Suffice to say we didn't finish this game either, so now there's two unfinished games to complete and I'm losing in both of them! Hopefully, I can make an amazing comeback in at least one.

Also, my baggy pants situation is getting quite silly now, so I decided to pop by the Narrabeen Vinnies to see if I could find a second hand pair that would fit better. I thought I'd managed to score a good deal, but sadly they've proved to be too small - they were sort of stretchy so I thought I'd get by. But no dice...damn that's twelve bucks I won't get back....Grandpa did suggest seeing if I could get an exchange of sorts, apparently they let him do it once, but he is an older gentleman so the Vinnies people probably figured he was legit.

In other news, Nedshenko is still with us...fingers crossed! Hopefully, this will continue.

Anyway, I better move quick with some Memes before I head off )

Whoo! I've finally caught up with Unconscious Mutterings, go me! :OD

Right, better hit the sheets now!

Goodnight all!

11:44pm: And by that I mean the eighth Harry Potter book, which I got as an e-book from the library and just couldn't put down once I got into Act Two. Now it was admittedly rather odd to read Harry Potter in play format, but all in all a totally awesome read. I should write a review on Goodreads, but instead I'm typing up this entry.

And that's because I'm unexpectantly staying here at the parental units's and thus have access to the internet! Having said that, I spent most of the evening reading my book, which I didn't need the net to do and thus I've kind of wasted my time here...Although I did manage to catch up on Tumblr so that's a plus, and I do have time tomorrow morning to do some more surfing.

So with midnight swiftly approaching I don't have a lot to say, except that getting the internet at the Granny Flat is proving to be an epic tale of despair then hope and then despair once more. First there was the news that Spintel could find no evidence a separate phone line ever going to my Granny Flat, then Telstra saying the had information for a Unit 1 at the same address as the main house, but no information on if it was active or not and then finally the realisation, that it is indeed an inactive line and to get it going again would cost $300.

Sucks, man.

Anyway, I should get to bed so as to wake up at a decent hour tomorrow as I really should use this internet time to do some job hunting. I'm also trying to do my Russian right now, not sure if I'll make it, but might as well give it a shot, I think I'm getting better. :O)

Oh wait no...I won't, time flies when you're concentrating on two things at once. At least I can freeze my streak so I don't have to go back to Day 1.

Right, this entry is making less sense by the minute, so I'm off!

Goodnight all!

FINALLY

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
9:28pm: Unfortunately, I'm not talking about the internet which is still missing in action, but the gymnastics, I'm finally watching it! I might have mentioned this before by bloody Channel 7 neglects to list exactly what sports they're showing on their channels in the TV Guide which makes it pretty much impossible to know if you're missing something important. I guess this is their way of making you watch all the time, but I got things to do.

Of course, life decided to be an asshat and there was a replay of the women's individual all-round final on last nights Today in Rio that I recorded, but because Channel 7 also breaks its programing into blocks when you press the record button it sometimes stops right in the middle of something. Which it did for that replay! As you can imagine I was rather pissed about that.

In fact it happened just now with the men's all-round, but fortunately since I'm watching I was able to press record again, although I did miss the end of some guy's high bar routine, boooo.

Anyway, not much else to report, although Mum came over for lunch today because on Thursday's a cleaner comes to their house and sefeels they clean better if she's out of the house and not in their way. Fortunately, I've been keeping the place relatively clean so she wasn't disappointed in me. We also watched some of the Olympics and got to see our Aussie win the 200m Freestyle over the US Nathan Adrian! Whoo! Go, Aus!

What else to report? Well, in the realm of the internet I've been trying to cancel my account with the TPG people, but I have to talk to a Case Manager and wouldn't you know it? They're always busy, they were supposed to call me back at 6:30pm yesterday, but instead they called me at 9:30 this morning, when I'm working. But I let them know - after 10 minutes of waiting - that I can't be contacted until after noon.

However, I'm still waiting on Spintel to get back to me, although I've just remembered that the support person did tell me to call to let them know I'd emailed the required information. Dang, I'll have to wait for tomorrow to do that.

Right, it's getting to the pointy end of the gymnastics so I need to concentrate on this...I also wanted to say the shirts the Ukrainian coaches are wearing are just hilarious...my eyes! :OP

And now, goodnight!
