11:55pm: Which is why I'm updating my journal with only five minutes to spare!

But yes, I've been drawing on my new tablet, or at least, I drew the actual line art on my Bamboo Spark and then coloured it on the tablet.

I'm looking forward to getting my pen stylus though, because it's a little hard to colour in without it, the regular stylus isn't much better then using my finger, LOL! Although I probably need to get a better digital art program, this one doesn't do layers or anything.

I went ice skating after work this afternoon, it was crowded as all Hell, but still really fun! I do love to skate, even if I am pretty bad at it, LOL.

Anyway, tomorrow I get the day off work to celebrate my cousin's birthday, yay! Except I have to make him a card and I haven't yet, I'm not sure what to draw!

I also need to do stuff with my fanfic tomorrow, the Yuri on Ice fans in the chatroom I'm in are looking forward to reading it and I've been dillydallying. Come on me, you can do it!

Okedoke, best be off now, with any luck I'll update tomorrow too (I'm reminded that I've fallen behind on my daily positive thing...gotta work on that.)

Right, goodnight all!

11:15pm: I am not very pleased, my stomach has been most irritable today, I don't know why, maybe I didn't eat a proper breakfast because I was a lazy ass, that being the case, I suck.

So, I didn't end up going to the library today :O( or to the gym. Dang. I've arranged to go to the library tomorrow though so hopefully I'll feel better. Plus I've got work tomorrow!

Anyway, not much to report...I did head out with the intention of going to the library, but I turned around and went to Bunnings to look for a heater, but would you believe they were all out! Boo. Then I went to Vinnies to look for pinstripe pants (I tried another second hand shop, but no luck) but no luck there. Then I went to the two dollar shot to buy an art pad to try out with my Bamboo Spark - yeah I went and bought it again, LOL, it was at another Aldi though so it wasn't the same one. The art pad doesn't fit quite right though and I think the paper is too thick for the pen. Anyway, I figure that I'll draw something in pencil first so I can correct mistakes and then when finished, turn the Spark on and trace over it in pen thus making the outline appear on the app.

But yeah, it didn't quite work, there was some lines that didn't show up, but I'm not sure if that was the thickness of the paper or because I had didn't realise you can't upload a drawing in parts (or maybe you can but I did it wrong) so when I tried to see my progress I ended up splitting the drawing. Yeah, it's a bit complicated.

Anyway, I'm hoping to get the hang of it soon!

Now I must be off, I've got work tomorrow! I bid you all good night!

11:20pm: So, I don't have a title because nothing super interesting happened today, although I did get all the things I wanted to do. Firstly, I checked out my Health Insurance, which despite what was said to me last time I went apparently it's restarted, so I can go to the optometrist. Although, I didn't actually get to said optometrist because I couldn't find any available appointments online and by the time I finished up at the gym and popped by the parental units' to see Dad it was a bit late to go in and see if the webpage was right. But I shall look into that tomorrow.

I also didn't solve my fabric paint issue, I did go to the art shop Eckersley - which was near Centrelink where I went to find out about getting a letter to prove I'm no longer on Newstart and thus can afford private health insurance - and the art shop at the Mall. But neither place had fabric paint, or at least not any that wasn't for screen dyeing in the former, or glittery and 3D-like at the latter. Although Eckersley's did have this stuff you can mix into acrylic paint to make it work on fabric. Should have bought that as it turned out. Ah well next time.

And that was a rather long and confusing paragraph...I hope you all got that. ;O)

I've also decided...to make my own Pusheen plushy because it's just too damn expensive to buy one from the official channels, especially as the Australian dollar has gone down the toilet. I might buy some keychains when the exchange rate gets better...although I was severely tempted by the Pusheen Box.

I found a pattern on the net, but I need to get some fabric, I'm not sure if should trek over to Lincraft or see what the fabric shop at Mona Vale has to offer, I didn't get a chance to go there today, so my drink bottle remains unclaimed in the library.

Speaking of the library I've got a shit next Tuesday! Yay! :OD And this Friday I have to go in for my three month review - apparently the last one I went to was a (late) 6 week one. However from the email it sounds like this one could possibly involve me getting a pay rise! I hope so!

Anyway, I better be off now, I keep falling behind on the Russian so I have to finish that before midnight!

Goodnight for now!

11:44pm: What's the meaning of this subject line you ask? Well! today Mum asked if I could make Easter cards for my uncle and his family and my aunt and her fiance, which I agreed to do, though it occurred to me we've never exchanged Easter cards before...but I came up with a good idea for Uncle Sam and his family (although I had to redo it because I mistakenly made the picture too big and it wouldn't fit in the card! The second redo went slightly pearshaped when the eraser left a mark - I hate it when it does that!) But then I was left stumped as to what to make for Aunt Weed. Fortunately [personal profile] isleofapples came up with a great suggestion so that's done. :O)

I'll take some photos of the cards to show you tomorrow.

As for muffins, that's the blueberry muffins for the Good Friday lunch tomorrow, now I think I might have mentioned that there's not much difference between cupcakes and muffins, but I was wrong, there is quite a difference, for one thing you don't use beaters when making muffins.

So anyway I've made 24 of them, 12 small ones and 12 medium ones, so hopefully they'll be well-received.

And lastly, Pusheen arrived woohoo! :OD However, it did occur to me I'm not entirely sure if this plushy was authorised by the creator, I figured it was, but I don't know. I think the company I ordered it from donates to animal shelters so I don't feel that much like an asshole. Also the plushy weirdly only as 3 legs, but you don't really notice, so I think it's meant to look like that. But most importantly, it's adorbs! :OD

On that note I better haul ass, I start half an hour later than normal tomorrow so I can sleep in, but only a bit.

Wish me luck tomorrow with everything.

Goodnight all!

11:11pm: It's a busy day tomorrow re: Mrs S so I have to get there half an hour earlier, which means I should have been in bed half an hour earlier, which clearly I'm not!

So I shall make this quick! Firstly, today is the 10th anniversary of Plushy's Olympic Gold Medal! Whoo! To celebrate this momentous occasion I made a gold medal for my Plushy plush. Cute huh? :O)

Although, the red ribbon there is one I managed to dig up from home, I actually brought some at the mall today but it seems to have disappeared! Damnit, that cost me $2.50! I wonder where it went? I hope it's in the locker at the library...

Today work at the library started an hour later so I had enough time to go to the gym, or at least swimming. Good times, good times! :O)

I also looked into getting a new water chiller, there were some at the Goodwill, but when I plugged it in at the testing area of the shop (no refunds on electrical goods) it buzzed so loud I decided not to purchase.

Speaking of! I ran the dishwasher for the first time today! I don't think I packed it quite right because a few things didn't get clean, but those that did where sparkling! :OD Ah so nice, although I seem not to have put the hoses in the back properly because there was quite a bit of leakage, thank goodness I put the dishwasher right next to the sink so the water ran into that. I tightened the screws in the back a bit more, so we'll have to see if it works.

And I moved the air con too, except I didn't need to use it today, I guess we might see tomorrow because tomorrow it's supposed to be humid again. I'll let you know.

And now, I must flee!

Goodnight all!

11:36pm: Making cards that is...what isn't in the cards is memes, sorry about that!

But it's been a busy day, what with work at Mrs S, then a drive to the Super Centre in Belrose and then work at Mona Vale Library!

I managed to do it all though, phew! Despite the fact I had to make a detour via Mrs S's house on my way to the library because I thought I'd left my mobile phone there. As it happened...I hadn't left it there, at least not in her house, no...it had fallen out in the bin room. Into the bin itself! I know...ewww...and also embarrassing. How do these things happen? Good thing I checked though! Otherwise I'd be down one phone! O.o

In other news, there's an ad on right now for a perfume...called Black Opium, is it just me, or is naming perfumes after illicit drugs in rather poor taste? I mean do we really want teenagers asking for that? Or associating it with a nice smell? Or is it just because opium isn't a word that's used much these days? I still think it's weird.

So yes, I got the three cards that need to go overseas done only to discover that I don't have their addresses after all! Shit. I've sent a private Plurk, but I'm not sure what will happen if they don't reply tomorrow because I'm quite sure they won't arrive on time anyway...but they certainly won't if I have to wait another day! Gulp!

And...look at the time, it's too late and I better be off, sorry for the short entry syndrome!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
10:46pm: Well, it's calmed down now, but half an hour ago it was a real light show out there! Not so much thunder, but there were a few times when there was definite rumble. It was a super hot day today though, so not all that surprising. Although I didn't really have the chance to see how my new air-con would perform because I was at work from 1 to 5 at the library at the Mall.

In other news, I've made a start on my Christmas cards, although I need to buy another overseas stamp because while I was going through Tumblr today I saw a story about a girl who was the sole survivor of an arson attack on her family's home. Her big Christmas wish is to get cards from all over the world and I thought that's something I can do! So I've made her a card with Australian animals with Santa hats or antlers and what not. I hope she likes it!

So yes, gotta finish the rest so I can send them tomorrow, perferably before 6pm when the mail goes.

Oh! And I received my first card from my friend Sage. :O) I've hung it up on the slats that separate the main room from the bedroom area.

What else to report? There was something, but I've forgotten what it was now! Well, I did throw out the milk from yesterday, as per [personal profile] crossover_chick advised. I did ask the internet too, but the results were a totally mixed bag. It only cost $1.08, I'm cheap, but not that cheap. Although if it was still good it was a shame to waste it, oh well.

Now, I better do a meme or two before I head to bed. )

Yikes, the lightning and thunder is back and it's also still humid...I turned my air-con off, not sure if that was the best move. I'll defintely turn my fan on in my bedroom though.


And now, it's off to bed!

11:09pm: Well, at least as far as this story on Embarrassing Bodies tells me...which is apparently the longer ones middle finger is compared to the index finger the more testoterone one got in the womb and the more masculine brained or rather systematically brained one is. Now, I have quite a difference, but I don't have any of the systematic brain stuff, like superior hand-eye co-ordination and been able to assemble Ikea furniture. On the other hand I'm not sure if I really rate on the typical feminine or empathetic brain skills of picking up facial expressions and remembering shit.

So make of that what you will.

In other news, today I travelled to five, count them five different Vinnies hunting for a strapless dress that I might be able to use as a base for my Halloween costume...and wouldn't you know it? I found one at the last Vinnies I went too! LOL, typical :OP

So now I'm trying to figure out what to do, because I've realised that I didn't get quite enough pink material the dress...and I'm wondering if the white chiffon that's supposed to overlay the pink material was the right choice because I'll have to stick about five million sequins on it. I'm wondering if I should get a different sort of fabric, which won't be an exact match, but at least won't require all busy work. I mean, I don't know if I can even stick that many sequins even if I do have a little over two months.

Either way I'm not sure if I'm going to use the white chiffon, but obviously it can't be returned, so I have no idea what I'll do with it. Any ideas. :OP

And yikes, look at the time...is there time for Memes? Maybe one!

A Cure For What Ails Ya

1. What’s the greatest lovesong of all time? Ah geeze...I'm not sure to be honest...I quite like 8 Days a Week by the Beatles.

2. What’s in the background of the most recent two pictures of you? An outdoor ice rink and the glass doors and living room of my grandparents place.

3. What was the primary cause of your most recent mishap? Well, I did almost trip over my own pants on Friday morning, so that was a close shave...also the day before I somehow managed to knock over my glass of water and nearly soak my calendars! Hurrying too much was the cause of both.

4. Why can’t I be you? Would you want to? But then...I am gainful employed now...but I am me so alas you cannot be.

5. What did you do on the 13th? Was that a Friday? No...it was a Thursday so...just check my entry from that day! :OP

Also...I'm a bit concerned there's a rat or possum or something on my roof, or perhaps even in the roof, there's been quite a lot of noise up there lately...

On that note, I shall be off it's getting close to midnight!

Oh but wait I must announce that while ice skating today I managed to crouch down and touch my skates! OMG! So exciting! Go me! :OD Still no luck going backwards though.

10:54pm: This morning I discovered that all is not well with the laptop and the cracked hinge, namely that if I press it a certain way it turns the screen off. In other words the cable is a bit exposed now and that can't be good. I don't know what to do now...there is a computer shop down in Dee Why, but I can't take the laptop there tomorrow or even the day after really because I'll be at the library and then at other appointments and I'm sure lugging it around the place would be a bad idea. Dang, what to do...

In other news, I was late to TAFE again this morning! Man, I'm getting bad at time keeping again, I didn't think I'd miss it today, but it must have come early, plus my app wasn't showing it's location - I guess some bus drivers turn off the GPS device or just don't have one in their bus? Which is quite irritating really. So, I had to walk to catch the other bus, although I went a different way this time. The other bus thankfully wasn't late this time, so I was only fifteen minutes late and hadn't missed too much. The teacher was still annoying, I distracted myself by working on a crossword, when I wasn't writing down important stuff. :OP I'm sure I got it all and it's up on the net.

However, I really do need to do those assignments, one is due next week after all and it's the one that's for the class today and last week so yeah, really should get that out of the way.

And finally, I bought some rhinestones, red and silver, they were from the Two Dollar Shops at the Mall (I had to get the red ones from one and the silver ones from the other) and decided to make (yet another) body for my Plushy Plush and this time I did some extra stitching and wouldn't you know it, there's no fraying this time, yay! Although the rhinestones are kind of big, I think it looks pretty sharp although I've solicited opinions from my Tumblr pals. I just hope the rhinestones stay stuck on!

Right, it's nearly half past eleven and I really ought to make sure I get the required zzzs so I shall be off now.

Wish me luck with all my sheninigans tomorrow.

11:29pm: So let's not, because that shit don't work in Australia, at least not where I'm sitting. I tried but the buffering was a nightmare so I gave up.

But OMG! Gymnastics is on! Damn, I wonder how much I've missed of it. I should have downloaded that Channel Ten app so I'd know when this stuff is on.

Ooo! A Singapore chap just won a medal in the vault, apparently for the first time ever, good for him! :OD

In other news, I didn't end up going to the doctor today, though I did get to the library, yay! Alas I was a bit late because I dilly-dallied a bit too much in the morning and missed the bus that goes past my house and had to go up around the corner to get the other one. Plus with that time o' the month swiftly approaching I was kind of dizzy when I arrived and the fact I had to select books for a seriously picky client made life a bit difficult. But I recovered!

However, I'm reminded yet again that I should probably change my phone's ring tone, as much as I like it, it does have a little voice saying "Help, help, I can't get out" which when my mother called me today while I was away from my phone in the library proper and someone actually thought a person was in trouble!

Hmm, what new one should I get....any suggestions?

In other news after my volunteering I went to Lincraft and returned all the sequins and got myself some more pink fleece in case I decide to make anything else, and some silver pipe cleaners...which I used to create

skates for my Plushy Plush! He is now complete, LOL and hopefully no longer shedding glitter. Any opinions on him is welcome.

Damn, the gymastics have disappeared again, what's up with that? Did the Olympics/Commonwealth Games always have this problem? They can't seem to say focussed on any event! Unless it's rugby or hockey or some shit.

Hmmm, it's getting a bit late, so no time for Memes, however I be tired, so it's probably for the best.

Plushy Plush

Reach for the laser with Antic's Sims-ulator!
anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:12pm: Well glitter rather, because I did in fact make a new body for my Plushy Plush, because the original one had separate arms, which weren't really necessary and could only lead to more fraying of the fabric. The body turned out great! But then of course I needed to put the glitter on to make the little red vest, silver tie combo and it's kind of got all over the place. But I made the right choice and shall leave him out to dry and hopefully they'll be no further loss of sparkles.

That was basically all I did today because when I woke up this morning, not only did I do so later than expected (must have turned off my Thursday morning alarm) and though I did get up with every intention of getting to the Library, I felt decidedly off while washing my hair in the shower and whilst I managed to do that, I decided to call in and ask if I could come in tomorrow instead. I had a bit of a time getting into contact with the Home Library Co-ordinator, but I eventually did and then proceeded to spend the rest of the day lying on the couch.

I haven't had a headache or anything, so I think I'll be good to go tomorrow, although now I'm wondering if I should go and spend the night at the parentals (since after the volunteering I need to go Neutral Bay to refill my prescription), but hmmmm, not sure, decisions, decisions. I guess I'll figure it out tomorrow morning.

Anyway, here's the Meme for today:

Booking Through Thursday

If I could give a brand new, really good book by your favorite author (living or dead) RIGHT NOW, what would you be willing to do for it?

Ooo, wow...that's quite an offer! But what would I do? Well, I'm pretty poor right now, not having a job or anything and I wouldn't want to do anything illegal. Well, I might sell my car parking space, LOL, which would get me a pretty penny. Otherwise I dunno...repaint your house?

Aaaand yeah...that's pretty much it, I've just switched over to the Commonwealth Games coverage, I did see some gymnastics today, but do'h it's hockey now. Dang.

Or Cycling, but it's time trial and thus no pelatons or velodromes, boring! :OP Oh well, at least this means I won't be tempted into staying up super late.

10:05pm: Well, I feel decidedly gross, which is not good because tomorrow is volunteer day and I'd rather not have to call in sick. I felt fine during TAFE classes today, but by the time I got home I had a rather nasty headache, I took some paracetamol, but it has only taken the edge off but I still feel less than pleasant, really tired and icky.

Although, it seems that time o' the month is creepy up on me again and I think the past few months I've mentioned getting some rather unpleasant symptoms...maybe I should discuss it with the doctor when I go about getting my vaccinations.

I probably didn't help myself by trying to do to work on the Plushy Plush - I went and got the proper sized sequins, but...they just didn't look as good. (I took them off and put them back in their packet and I'm thinking of returning them...because I don't need to keep stuff I'm not going to use).

In other news, I'm watching a doco on Zero Tolerance in US schools and that shit is bananas, and also pretty clearly racist because the most serious abuses all seem to involved kids of colour. And man they actually take kids to court for chewing gum? Don't these guys have anything better to do? And then they end up with a criminal record! What the fuck?

Also, er...I was going to say something else, but I've forgotten what it is now. Scratches head. Well, once again it mustn't have been that important or something.

Oh and I missed some gymnastics action at the Commonwealth Games, boooo! I knew I'd miss it, although diving's meant to be on except I'm watching this doco and going to bed soon which will hopefully mean waking up tomorrow and feeling alright.

Right...wow...the principal of this school is one fucked up guy...doesn't believe in evolution and requires all his teaches to carry a weapon. I would very much hope after seeing this documentary everyone knows where NOT to send their kids.

And that's pretty much all I have to say right now.

11:01pm: In today's quiz! Yay! Nothing like a good mark to make one feel smart. However...I'm getting a bit nervous about the work placement thing...firstly there's the whole vaccination thing, I'd rather not have to get injections if I can help it! Secondly, and more importantly, I'm worried about the placement itself, we have to do it in a High Care facility, with people who need a lot of assistance...I'm worried about how I'll be able to deal with the possibility of blood, or incontinence or worst of all, throwing up! D: I don't know if I can deal with that and frankly? I'd really rather not have to. I'm crossing my fingers that I'll have a job or something even if it does mean giving up the $109 I paid - although Mum said she'd cover it.

So yeah...I don't know what to do if I don't have a job though...although this does remind me I really need to get around to seeing my new pyschiatrist, why hasn't that guy called me yet? Rude!

In other news, Mum's friend came up here this evening with some more jobs that I can apply to, gee, maybe I just really suck at job hunting and there is forty jobs a month to apply to. Awkward. But yeah, better get onto those!

Anyway, while she was up here I had a bit of a brainwave about my Plushy Plush, I think I'm going to redo the body - because I've discovered some ways to stop the fraying that happens with the satin and also I looked up the art shop in the Mall and they sell self-adhesive rhinestones in various sizes, I'm hopeful that I'll be able to find ones that are small enough to use on the body and then I won't have a glitter problem! Because right now you can't really cuddle Plushy Plush unless you want glitter all over your person.

Also, Mum's friend was nice enough to give me a nice big green box which I'm going to store some of my craft/sewing things in so I don't have such a hard time finding stuff because it's in all sorts of bags, I had the biggest trouble finding those sequins, turns out the were on the shelf by my bed the whole time, LOL whoops.

Finally, I really wish I'd cleaned the flat up a bit because it's looking pretty bad, and full what with all the bags and the (not working) sewing machine. Mjum's friend says she doesn't mind, but I do recall Mum saying her friend had mentioned it to her, so I'm not so sure about that.

Annnd on that note, I should wrap this up and get to bed, because zzzzs as always are much appreciated!

Hmmm, and cleaning up my craft stuff has resulted in me getting fabric bits all over my new jeans, I hope I can get it off before tomorrow...or maybe I should just wear my new black jeans tomorrow. I shall have to decide in the morning.

And now, off to bed!

10:03pm: So, I'm having to use my mobile data at the moment (good thing it's the end of the month soon and I still have like 40% of my monthly data allowance left!) because it's too late to call my mother's friend down in her house to ask her to reset the box.

Good thing I don't watch internet TV or anything like that! All the same, I should probably make sure I don't do too much on the net.

But hey, exciting news! I finished my Plushy Plush! Wouldn't you know it though? I only just noticed that the face is a bit lopsided, damn my inability to do things symmetrically and/or in a straight line. Also, black satin is a shitty fabric to sew with, at least the way I do it, I'm worried all the seams will eventually fray apart, which would really suck quite badly. But hey, he's adorbs at the moment albeit with a slight glitter shedding problem, LOL.

Actually, I borrowed M's sewing machine - Mum had to drop me back here at the Granny Flat because she left her mobile here last night - forgetting that I'd already borrowed it once before and neither Mum or I could get it to work. How annoying, now I have to get it back to M and Grandpa's place.

But yes, I have finished my latest art project, go me! :OP

10:21pm: First of all, as typical I managed to oversleep this morning and beyond that it was drizzly today, so I pretty much stay at home. I got all my laundry done so that's good! Although, I'm not sure if it will dry by tomorrow...I sure hope so.

I also worked on my Plushy Plushy! I have a head! But I think I must have measured wrong or something because I've made two bodies to go with it and they're both absolutely tiny I mean it's a chibi style doll pattern, but the tininess of bodies is ridiculous! Of course now I've just got a head sitting around which is really a little creepy. Although I'm kind of proud of it so maybe I'll put a picture up for all of you to go "Aaaargh!" at.

But yeah, I have to figure out how to make a bigger body...good think I got like a whole 2 square metres of black statin. Maybe the fabric is the problem? You do have to make the hem rather large because of the fraying, hmm, will have to consider this. Also, do I want the arms separate? Because it's a pain in the ass to sew them on. Also the sequins are too big, boo! I'll probably have to return those, because quite honestly I'm not entirely sure how to sew them on without the thread showing.

Anyway, I won't go on because my mother wants to come over and spend the night tomorrow so she can watch the rugby on Foxtel which means I have to make sure the place is clean and neat for her arrival!

Before I get down to some spot cleaning before bed though...Memes!

Bring on the fun )

Right...maybe I'll just post my plushy progress on Tumblr, since you know that's where its at and I might as well use my Tumblr for something.

For now though, I must be off, I also need to make my bed before I got to sleep!

So I know bid you all goodnight!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
10:59pm: Yes! Today after going to the library for my volunteering and before going to the mall to pick up my new jeans I popped by Lincraft and bought a variety of craft item. I'm planning on making a Plushy Plushy (LOL, don't ask), I've all ready got a pattern from DeviantArt, handy resource right there. Although man, I haven't been there in ages and had 722 messages waiting to be looked at, yikes! The only thing I'm torn on is whether my Plushy should have a nose, I feel like it should but I can't even think how I'd do that with the patterns I've found without messing it up. Hmmm, ponderings indeed.

In other news, I discovered that the books I selected for one of the home library patrons a few weeks back were extremely well received! OMG, yaaay! :OD I did some more selections today, hopefully I'll develop a reputation as a kick ass book selector. However, typing this up has made me realise...I think I mixed up insure and ensure in my job application...which close today...shit I was going to see if I could fix it before that happened. But I forgot! D: Oh man, if that ends up being the reason I don't get an interview (not that'd I'd ever know if it were the case...) I'm gonna kick myself. Damn you homonyms!

Annnd that's pretty much all I have to report for now, Booking Through Thursday hasn't been put up and I should go to bed at a decent hour because I need to get up early to do my laundry which includes getting my new jeans out of the washing machine (I've decided to follow the suggested advice that I wash them before I wear them) so they'll dry by Saturday. Plus I'm also sleepy, so yeah.

I wish you all goodnight and let you know how the plushymaking goes!

Goodnight all!

11:19pm: I totally lost track of time, this happens to me a lot, especially when I get caught up in surfing the net, which happens a whole damn lot, LOL.

Anyway! Exciting news, Project Plushy is thoroughly completed, man I love that gloss stuff, it really makes things look classy as Hell. You can see the end result here! I think they look fantastic! :O)

Aaand I got to the gym today, which was good, but there was a sad lack of any job hunting...I did actually call a place that was advertising in the paper, which looked promising, until the person who answered told me they'd had more than enough interest and weren't accepting anymore applications. Shit man, that newspaper only came out two days ago! They must have advertised in one of the other local papers that come out earlier in the week. Or maybe the job market really is that hard. The news keeps saying new jobs have been created, but as far as I can tell only in fields I have no hope of getting into, like tyre fitting or forklift driving. Sigh!

I am however planning to go down to the Salvation Army place to discuss volunteering there, although I've just realised I think the managing guy might have said he's only there on the weekdays. Whoops. Well still jobs must be hunted for, if I'm not trying hard enough then I'm one of those dole blugers and no-one likes those!

Now, the Memes!

Follow Friday Four Fill Ins

The statements:

1. Did you know that Australians are the fourth lowest tax paying populations in the OECD? Just found that out today from a graph.

2. I feel like going to bed soon.

3. I get irritated at everything the Australian Government does these days, shit.

4. Cheese is my favorite snacking food, LOL no surprises there.

Friday's Question

9/5/2014

Do you have a lucky number? What is it, and what is the story behind it?

Well, apparently according to numerology it's meant to be 5 but I prefer even numbers much more, my favourites being 6 and 8. But really I'm not all that enamoured of numbers anyway so...

Friday5

Figure Five

1. In what way was someone recently rude to you? Most fortunately, I can't think of any recent incident! Possibly a customer at work might have been an asshole a few weeks back, but eh I can't really recall.

2. What’s the most macho thing you’ve done recently? Uh...does going to the gym count?

3. What was the last occasion for which you wore a mask? Don't really wear masks, they're uncomfortable...As far as I can remember it would have been over 20 years ago (fuck me, I'm old!) as part of a Garfield costume Mum helped me put together for Book Week.

4. What’s a nice encounter you’ve had recently with nature? Well, I went out into the gardens of the retirement village to get some flowers for M when I was over there, so that was nice. :O)

5. Who cuts your hair? Whoever takes me at Just Cuts, I ain't fussed. Although the last lady I went to cut my hair right so that I could still pull it back! Might have to go back to the Marrickville Metro just for that.

Right! Managed to finish those before midnight, but I best be off now, I should get cracking on that job hunt tomorrow. Wish me luck! Again...

Oh wait and I'd also like to report that I won't be moving after all...Dad would rather my rent money go to him and Mum, so here at the parentals I shall remain!

Goodnight!

Plushy Babushkas

anonymoose_au: (Pinkie Pie Bounce!)
10:45pm: Haha, I sincerely doubt it, but Project Plushy - the Babushka dolls have attracted some attention from other Plushy fans, how fun! :O)

Sadly for me, Australia doesn't have a Babushka-making industry, so there goes that as a career option...damn, kind of makes me wish I'd been born in an earlier time when such artisan trades were still viable career options.

On the other hand, there was no internet back then...the trade is probably not worth it. :OP

Hmmm, I'm watching TV right now and there's an add for an animal circus...I thought they banned those things in Australia? Although some years ago an animal circus came to the park across the street and my family went over to see the elephant. The elephant seemed to be OK, but really, they belong in their natural habitat, or at the very least a spacious zoo!

In other news, work today and happily my IBS got the memo and didn't bother me today, yay :O) So all the magazines were priced and put out and there was also stationery that needed pricing too, so yeah, good times. Man...I get joy from such weird things, don't I?

But I've got my introductory appointment with the Life coach person next Tuesday, so here's hoping she can help me put my best foot forward in the job hunt. Fingers crossed people!

What else to report? Not much, I was going to go to the gym after work, but the weather turned to shit and I couldn't be bothered, but yeah I'll have to go tomorrow otherwise I'm just donating money to the gym rather than actually using it LOL!

Hmmm and with nothing else to report, I guess I'll Meme and run:

Booking Through Thursday

Plot or Characters?

Which is more important when you read — the actual story or the characters? I’ve read books with great plots, but two-dimensional characters, and I’ve read multi-layered characters stuck in clunky stories, and I’m sure you have, too. So which would you rather focus on, if you couldn’t have both?

Well, as a reader of such trashy books at the Sweet Valley series, it's possible neither is important to me :OP But I think that characters are most important to me. I've read many a book with a crummy plot, but interesting characters which was enough to keep me hooked although the crappy plots would leave me rolling my eyes more than once. But yeah, I tend to get attached to characters.

Air Crash Confidential is on at the moment, they're looking at accidents caused by bad weather, including that flight over the Amazon that broke up leaving a lone survivor who fell some 30,000 feet into the forest and miraclously survived. We saw a movie about it at school once, it was a Hell of a story! But yeah, I can't even imagine getting through such a situation, surviving a plane crash and being stuck in the jungle for 11 days with an infected wound. o.O

Aaand that's pretty much all I have to say for now - although The Simpsons: Tapped Out has been going a lot better for me lately! Not so much crashing and I've been getting random premium currency and other stuff. Heh, probably all part of sucking me in.

And now, I bid you all goodnight!

anonymoose_au: (Whoops)
11:11pm: From my creative works, LOL. When I got home from work this evening I got to work on the Babushka dolls some more because tomorrow I go to the grandparents house for the night and thus will be unable to do anything more with them (although, I should be able to get the gloss, I think I'll have to go to an art shop and ask about what to use, because I'm not sure if I should get something that's for wood - because that's what the dolls are, or for acrylic paint - because that's what's covering them). I ended up finishing the third one, which I think came out rather well! Once again details here.

Of course, doing that made me realise...oh shit I neglected to watch My Little Pony again, do'h! I really need to get onto that, although once again it's too late. Shakes head...I'll have to do it tomorrow morning, make a note self! :OP

What else to report, well, today was work day and it went quite well, yay! :O) I do love putting stickers on the new magazines when they come in. Good times, good times.

And now I'm watching the late news, because I missed the regular 7pm news because I was painting and they've just mentioned the Pistorius trial has resumed, which is interesting because I was just wondering what was going on there. I guess it was recess, I thought all the arguments for and against had been presented, I guess not. Has the jury been sequested all that time though? It's been months!

Also...there's that horrible mass-kidnapping that's happened in Nigeria, those poor girls, the UN or someone has to get onto that and mount a rescue operation I think. This is really serious and scary, the militants behind the kidnappings say they'll sell the girls into sexual slavery or God knows what, a real crime against humanity going on right there.

And, there's not much else for me to say, so I guess I'll wrap this up here...man this entry is all over the place, but yeah, that's me.

Goodnight all!

10:44pm: And Homes Under the Hammer is on and by the time it ends it'll be too late, ah damn, especially since throughout the day I've been thinking to myself that I need to go to YouTube and watch it...LOL I fail.

In other news, the job with Mum's friend's husband isn't a happening thing, which is rather a relief, because it turns out it's out in Blacktown (an outer suburb at least an hour's drive away) and involves preparing catering - chopping vegetables for salads and such, which I'm hopeless at, resulting in big chunks of carrot and whatnot rather than nice julienne strips or whatever.

However, the granny flat out the back of the friend's house does sound interesting though...it might not be all that bad to live there, although it does mean getting to the gym will be a bit of a pain in the ass, oh well I'll figure out something. I'm going to go and take a look at it on Wednesday afternoon on the way home from M's because they need to clean it up a bit. Here's hoping it is nice.

Speaking of the gym, I'm pleased to say that I got off my ass this afternoon and went, weights, stretching, swimming yay! :O) Gotta love getting physical, go endorphins!

Also adding to my good mood, the Babushka doll project is going well! I'm sure none of you actually care (obscure fandom FTL!), but here's some details if you're so inclined.

Moving on from that, Meme time! )

Right, I've got my laptop on battery and its getting low, so I best wrap this up! And my nose has suddenly got very itchy...what's up with that? I better not be getting a cold or something.

Keep your fingers crossed for my health!

Goodnight all!
