11:28pm: There's not a lot to say about it probably, since all the competitiors have to wear white, but they've got a Frenchman playing and his got a bushy beard! LOL I've never seen a tennis player with a beard before! Actually that seems to be an athlete thing, I know body hair is the enemy of swimmers, divers and cyclists, but you don't see other athletes with them either. Hmm, maybe it's all the sweater.

In other news, I'm relieved to report that I've managed to get through a road block in my fan fic! I've been stuck on it for the past few days, but finally some inspiration hit. Yay, go me!

So I didn't end up updating yesterday after all because that's how I roll, but let it be said, it was a great get together for my cousin Mack's birthday. Some of his maternal cousins were there, who I don't think I've met before, interesting people.

I had a cheese burger with chips on the side (I also put the lettuce that was in the burger on the side, because who wants warm lettuce? Why is that a thing anyway?) Very nice, although the cheese could have been meltier, it's hard to find good cheese.

Mack liked the Google gift card my little bro and I got for him - which reminds me I forgot to give the little bro my bank details so he can pay me back, whoops! - and the card I made. I drew Mr Burns in his "Excellent" pose since we enjoyed the play.

Aunt Jo made a rather interesting cake with caramelised apple and...I'm not sure what else, not chocolate though, because my aunt doesn't cook with chocolate. But there was dollop cream to go with it so yuuum!

Plus let's not forget the fact I took a paid day off work, so yay!:O)

Anywho, it's ten minutes to midnight now, so I better go, I've got work tomorrow at 9:30am and I need to make sure I get the proper amount of zzzs.

Wish me luck with my story and goodnight all!

11:08pm: 'Cause I can't think of one! Seriously, major fail me.

It doesn't help that I'm feeling quite sleepy which is rather weird because I got enough zzzzs last night, then again, I suppose one night can't fix everything. :OP

Moving on, I didn't get my Canasta vengence today! M and I didn't end up finishing the game. I started off super-well, then M started fighting back...and we have a family rule that not only do you have to reach 5,000 points, you have to go out on winning hand. So despite the fact I did reach 5,000, I haven't won yet. So next time I go over it will be a fight to the death to get two Canastas and go out! Winning takes all. :OP

After a delicious lunch cooked by Grandpa (I had no idea he was such a good cook, but then he did have to cook for himself when he was out on his yacht for all those years) and helping M out with her laptop a bit it was off to the the library for my volunteering.

I was also meant to speak to that person about interviews and stuff, but I don't think Thursday's a good day for her...she wasn't actually there when I arrive and then there was a farewell party for a member of staff and by the time I finished my selections for home library service patrons she was busy or gone again (not sure which to be honest). So I might have to do a different day...

But hey, the farewell meant cake! :OD I'm never one to turn down cake.

However! I did remember to call the mechanic when I got home and I've booked my car in for its service next Thursday. Hopefully it won't be too pricey! I'm supposed to be saving money after all.

Right, I better wrap this up and hit the hay, work calls tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

10:46pm: Indeed so! Always an exciting time, although I missed the Opening Ceremony because I was at work today. However, the news did replay some highlights, including the Tongan Flag Bearer who's taken the world by storm, LOL!

Right now, I'm watching the Road Race with Grandpa, Phil Liggett is commentating, yay! It's gokna be a very long race though, seven hours! So obviously we won't be staying up for all of it. But with any luck one of our Aussie's will do well and maybe pick up a medal!

It also has to be said that Rio looks really pretty from the aerial shots, which is nice because there's been a lot of doom and gloom in the lead up. Good to see the Opening Ceremony highlights, since even with the tight budget there was a lot of excitment and the caldron for torchy was amazing! :OD

In other exciting news, I won Canasta against M this afternoon! OMG! Even more than that, actually, I kicked some serious butt. Whoot! Hooray me! There's gonna be a rematch tomorrow morning though, so who knows what will go down there.

Not much else to report, although I didn't end up meeting Mum at the display suite of the apartment building that's going up in Brookvale, which was a good thing because I never would have made it! Not sure what's happening, apparently Dad's been investigating options too, maybe he's found something nicer! I'm still wondering about that one bedroom myself, although I probably can't afford that one.

Not much else to report except Uncle Sam dropped by this afternoon with a two quarters of a chocolate mousse cake, one for me and one for M and Grandpa, yum! Although, I haven't actually eaten any of my yet, I tasted some of M and Grandpa's piece.

Uncle Sam also got me onto this game called "Letterplex", we're playing a game right now, don't think I'm gonna win against him, at least not the first game.

Right, it's after 11pm and I haven't done my Russian! Better haul, I do need to get up at a decent hour tomorrow after all.

Goodnight all!

11:00pm: So, I changed my doona to the winter one yesterday so that I only had to have my electric blanket on for a few hours instead of the whole night.

The bad news that when my alarm went off this morning it was so nice and toasty instead of the chilliness of previous mornings that I let myself nod off and even though it felt like only a minute or so when I opened my eyes again almost an hour had passed! O.o

This meant that I had five minutes to get to work! An impossiblity so I had to call Mrs S to let her know I'd be late, before throwing on my clothes, having a quick breakfast of mandarin and a slice of cheese and hit the road.

Fortunately, since I live so close now I only ended up been ten minutes late, so phew! Still, quite embarrassing. I better be careful...once again we see the importance of jumping out of bed as soon as one's alarm goes off.

In other news, Mum was very pleased by how tidy my flat was, hooray! :OD Of course, I did come home right after work to do more cleaning (so I'm going to need to go to the gym tomorrow and Friday to get my two days a week in). Although I didn't just clean, I also overlocked all the seams of my shirt, even unpicking the lower hem so I could do that to stop it from fraying since if I do a rolled hem the shirt will be too short.

Then it was off to the school to help Mum with her class - and once again I cut it a bit close, I definitely need to leave no later than 2:05pm. Then it was back to my humble abode to wipe down the kitchen counters before Mum arrived with a treat - a piece of black forest cake to share, yum!

I also asked Mum when she'd next be swimming, she said tomorrow just after lunch, so I'll be going there after I finish up with Mrs S. There's an old exercise bike in the pool area so I guess I'll use that or maybe just go to the gym after I finish at the library. Who knows.

After Mum left I redid the bottom of the sleeves on my purple shirt and after reading the manual decided to give it a go with the buttons. I don't think I did it quite right, I had to do it by turning the flywheel manually rather than using the peddle, but maybe that's how it's done? The manual wasn't entirely clear on that point.

Right! Now it's quite late and even though I got extra sleep, the jury's still out on whether a person can actually build up a sleep bank.

So goodnight all!

9:18pm: LOL, yes, it's a little weird, but Aunt Weed very kindly bought me a present! I'm not entirely sure why, I guess she was feeling generous. And a very nice gift it was too, some Derwent pencils and one of those Adult Colouring Books that have been taking the world by storm. Apparently they're good for de-stressing, good times.

Oh! And there was also presents from the parental units in the form of souvineers from their travels! I got the cutest things, which I will show you pictures of tomorrow. Suffice to say Prince Consort Albert is involved!

I certainly could have used that today, because my plans for getting my hair done did not go as planned, I got there at 10am, which was a bit later than I meant to, then I discovered the Just Cuts at the Mall was no longer there! Of course, there's other hairdressers there so I went looking and I probably picked the wrong one. It was a bigger one, so I thought there'd be more staff there, I probably should have kept looking when I was told I couldn't be seen until 10:30, but it seemed there'd still be enough time. And it probably would have, if not for the fact that I waited in the chair for almost half an hour before they even got started on me! Obviously, I should have said something...but yeah, I didn't.

I had arranged to meet my little bro at the corner near the Mall so I could drive him to Uncle Sam's place at 11am, but I was going to SMS to let him know I was on my way, imagine my dismay when I got an SMS from him saying he was waiting on the corner! And at that point the hairdresser hadn't even started blowdrying my hair!

He was willing to wait, but son of a bitch, the hairdresser's were slow - one did the wash and blow drying and a second one did the trimming and the straightening - I suppose the fact there were like four other women in their getting their hair dyed may have had something to do with it.

In the end, my mother called to tell me Dad was coming to pick up my little bro - I'd actually suggested he'd get the bus, but apparently Dad wanted to show off his new car or something ;O) my hair was finally done by 12:10 and with a quick stop at Woolworths to get Dollop Cream for my cupcakes, I rushed back to the parking lot for my car.

It was a bit confusing when I saw my brother still waiting on the corner, I went to pick him up, but Dad was right behind me, so he drove him.

Anyway, I probably didn't need to be so worried, because no-one was pissed off that we were late, I was expecting some bitching because M likes us to be on time, guess she was in a good mood.

The Thai food was good, Mack enjoyed his gift of Japanese Yen, my cupcakes were very well received, particularly with the cream on top and there was also the cake! Black Forest, yum! After all that though I didn't end up going to the gym...I'll have to go tomorrow after the library (I'll hold off on swimming for a bit since I did pay $71 for the hair straightening!).

Speaking of tomorrow, I have to wrap this entry up quickly because Mrs S needs me to come in at 7am - ewww - so I need to get up at 6:00, which means I need to be asleep by 10pm if I'm going to get my eight hours.

That being the case, I think I'll skip the memes for now and do them tomorrow instead.

For now, goodnight!

11:15pm: Oh man, look at the time! I don't know what I've been doing but time has definitely got away from me...once again the Memes will need to be foregone.

Anyway, to get to the subject of this entry this morning was the family get together for Grandpa's birthday and his and M's 60th wedding anniversary.

Mum had got a very small wedding type cake for them, with a nice message on top. It was really very impressive how many words the cake decorator managed to fit on it! There was another cake too, what was left of Mum's Bon Voyage cake from the Parish. She wasn't too impressed by it because it had faux cream rather than fresh cream, but nuts to that, it was delicious! :OD I got half of it to take home, at first I was only going to take a small bit, but there was quite a lot left. I've cut the second bit in half and put it in the freezer since there's no way I could eat it all in a timely manner, LOL.

Anyway, it was a great get together, although I did talk a bit too much...same ol' same ol'. I really must do something about that...

Mum and Dad were good enough to pick me up (since the little bro ran late because he forgot to set his alarm) and also drop me off. They'll be leaving on their trip at the end of this week and I wonder when I'll see them before they go...I guess on Tuesday when I've agreed to go into the city to pick something up for Mum. I shall bring it back to their place.

Now, as I said bed calls so I shall have to wrap this up.

Goodnight all!

11:31pm: Yes indeed! It's been a while, but a few of my friends and I got together today to celebrate the birthday of two of them, both of them are celebrating the big 3-0, although I didn't actually buy a present although I did sign the 'number' that one of them got for the other (it was a wooden sculpture thing in the shape of a '30' which was pretty cool. I wish I'd got one, but alas, I have to wait for my 40th birthday - shiiit, I don't want to think too much about that! :OP)

We went out for Chinese food which was delicious, although they only took cash and I didn't have any cash on me, so...I relied on the kindness of my friends to pay for me, I really need to get around to paying people back once I actually have money on my person. Anyway, I ordered honey chicken and the portion was huge! I only managed to eat half of it! Luckily I was able to have the rest put in a take away container so now I have something for lunch tomorrow...or maybe dinner. I'm not sure if I'll be having lunch in the usual way because the teacher told me (and some others in the class) to come in at 11:30. Hmmm, maybe I'll take the pizza with me instead.

After we had the Chinese we headed to a park - since the day turned out quite lovely where I shared out my cupcakes and another cake which a friend of a friend made - it was a pretty amazing cake too, with mousse frosting and merringue!

Anyway, NaNo still calls and I haven't done too badly today, I've broken the 16,000 word mark, although I have to pick up the pace a bit more because at this rate I'll finish on 20th December!

But as of now my stats stand at:



16177 / 50000 words. 32% done!

Over 30% now! Go me!

Oh and the wardrobe rack has been fixed and N was nice enough to help me clean up a bit so now the bed area of the flat looks really good, or er it well once I've finished cleaning up a few more things. Plus he put some screws in the wall so I could hang up some paintings I have. Niiice. I might be able to take pictures to show you all!

For now, though, I must be off!

10:30pm: Well, not exactly...there was cake, because it was First Holy Communion, but that was after church not before, LOL. But what a bonus! It was simply delicious fluffy vanilla sponge with creamy vanilla frosting. Mmmmm, yum! The only downside...the organist, who also makes the PowerPoint slides has really slacked off on the past few weeks, putting the wrong hymns in and all that. Which defeats the purpose of having slides for people to read the words off in the first place! I guess he must have got the presentations from the year before or something and didn't update them. Hmpf!

Also, Mum was there because she's in charge of arranging First Holy Communion as part of her work which means I also got a ride back here to the apartment, yay!

Anywho! I better get to the Memes now because I can't go to bed too late tonight, I slept in to almost midday today and tomorrow Mum's going to pick me up and take me over to see Dad - his foot operation is on Monday so I better wish him good luck and all that. Plus their bed has arrived, apparently it's super high so that's something I'd like to see, LOL.

OK, some of the Friday Memes seem to have gone AWOL, but here's one:

The (Other) Friday Five

1. What is the song/tune that keeps going thru your head today? Hmm, I guess The Cell Block Tango since listening to it on my phone on the bus to church.

2. What strange thing happened this week? Strange, ummm...hmmm...nothing comes to mind.

3. What good thing? Got the work placement thing going on! Although I'm a bit worried about doing it.

4. What happy thing? Playing the Sims 4, whoo!

5. Anything memorable happen this week? What was it? Uh...I don't think so, since nothing stands out to me, bit of fail there.

And that Saturday one!

Saturday 9

: Hey, Soul Sister:

1) The video was shot on a street corner in Echo Park in central Los Angeles. If you saw a film crew making a video in your neighborhood, would you stop to watch? Or would you just keep walking? I'd probably stop to watch for a little bit, but not all day or anything.

2) The singer says he remembers his girl in every dream he dreams. Do you remember if you dreamed last night? I do! Well some of it, which involved trying to take the bus home and having a Hell of a lot of trouble doing so! Like there was an accident that stopped them running for a while and then they wouldn't stop when I was trying to wave them down. I think I was with a group of other people, and man it was a pain. I think I woke up once I got on the bus, LOL.

3) The band Train is from San Francisco. Have you ever visited The City by the Bay? Nope, I've been to LA though.

4) Lead singer Pat Monahan got his start in a Led Zeppelin cover band. Can you name a Led Zeppelin song? Uh...no actually...I'm not good at linking bands with their songs.

5) In doing research for this week's Saturday 9, Crazy Sam discovered a publication called Trains, The Magazine of Railroading. What's the last magazine you flipped through? Having worked at a newsagency I can tell you there's all sorts of esoteric magazines out there. To answer your question, it was The Woman's Weekly at M and Grandpa's house.

6) Do you consider yourself a leader or a follower? Follower...or loner, maybe, LOL.

7) Scholars tell us that "To be or not to be" is Shakespeare's most quoted line. Give us another one. "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet." Or maybe even "Parting is such sweet sorrow."

8) How do you listen to music on the go? Car radio? CD changer? iPod/mp3 player? Your phone? My phone, I used to have a portable CD player and even a walkman (wow how old am I?) but no more. Phone audio files don't skip either, LOL!

9) Are you a convincing liar? Fuck no. I can't lie for anything, if I try it usually ends up going pear-shaped.

Righto, better be off, maybe there's time for a bit simming before I go to bed.

For now, I say goodnight!

10:59pm: Indeed! Although it finished up before 10! Which was a good thing, since I didn't take a cardigan and it was starting to get chilly.

I'm happy to report my IBS has behaved itself these past few days and I got to the city after work without much trouble. Although, I some how managed to look up the wrong bus stop on Google maps and as a result the bus I took went all over the damn place before finally dropping me off near my destination. I have no idea how that happened...but rest assured I was not super late, although I didn't have enough time to change into my top for the party so I had to go into the bathroom and do that before joining my friends outside.

The weather continues to be unseasonably warm! Tomorrow it's meant to reach 26 degrees! A week before winter officially starts! There's no such thing as climate change, my ass!

Anyway, the party was fun, the bar has Jazz Night on Mondays so there was nice background music and the friend who's birthday it was sang. Unlike most of my friends, she can actually sing too! Towards the end of the evening there was a cake and everyone at the venue sang 'Happy Birthday' and my friend gave a speech, then cake time! Although...I think it might have been a bit too rich for me, because I've got a headache now...ow.

Another benefit to going to the city is that the Vivid Festival is on, last year I saw only the Darling Harbour stuff, but tonight I saw stuff in Martin Place, I'm not sure if that stuff was around last year actually because they've extended the festival, but I got some kickass photos which I'll upload and show you tomorrow.

Oh and I got a call about the paper run, however I don't think it's worth taking on, 165 papers to deliver six days a week for only $9.60 a day? That's pretty weak! I guess I'll ask Mum what she thinks tomorrow.

Also of some concern...the lack of interest in the apartment! I don't get it, last time there was heaps of interest and now it's not even short-term and I haven't got one response that's not from some third party offering to manage the place for a price. Hmpf! That's of no use to me! Hopefully, some interest will come in before Thursday.

And lastly, I seem to have hurt my hips...maybe I should cut back in the weight I'm pressing at the gym, because ow!

Right, I best be off because I have an IPL appointment tomorrow and I also need to sort out my medication and buy a router booster from Officeworks before heading back to the granny's Flat. Wish me luck!

11:20pm: Well, one would never imagine they'd be quoting Biff, but I have cause to today. I wasn't able to go and get EPL today because as the machine only just came back today, they'll call me to make an appointment tomorrow.

Anyway, I hadn't heard from them by the time I left today, but I had to go pick up my drink bottle from work, which I did, so I popped by the Computer Repair shop to see how my hard drive was going and worse news! I've really stuffed it up and according to the lady it'll cost $300 to fix! Or actually they're not even sure if that will result in complete data recovery, uuugh... can I even justify that? I mean now I'm moving back to the parental units I look to be able to save quite a bit, but still...

And what if I pay all that money and half of my stuff isn't even recoverable. Uuuugh! Definitely going to have to back up to the cloud, because I suck at keeping hold of hard drive devices which is obviously necessary for safe storage!

So friends! Give me advice... my stories! Should I attempt to save them and damn the expense? Or should I cut my losses? Thing is while some of the stories are online not all are and I'd really hate to lose them...

So yeah...although the question must be asked, where the Hell did Biff get $300?! In the 50s no less? Must have robbed a bank.

And in closing, did you know they have sprints in Nordic skiing? I did not know this! It's a skiaton! I love it, LOL.

Right better wrap this up, only 20 minutes til midnight and since I was at my friend's surprise birthday party tonight, I haven't had a chance to check on my apps tonight. But oh! It was a fab party with my friend being super surprised, lots of yummy food (pizza, mud cake, watermelon, grapes!) Plus my cupcakes were well received, yay.

Right off I go!

10:44pm: Yes indeed! I've only just got home about half an hour ago from the Vintage Tennis Party. Which was heaps of fun! Although, alas I still suck at tennis, my depth perception is so bad, man. But there was also scones with jam and ceeam, potato chips, lots of yummy stuff like that.

As for yesterday, as I said the party was great, with my cake, balloons and friends. I got some fantastic presents too, a lovely bunch of flowers and an Andipose squishy (of Doctor Who fame) from my friend Zep, and a very nice card from my friend Tina, and my other friend Nick was nice enough to pay for dinner. :OD

Also I got lots of nice stuff from the parental units as I said, apart from the watch, I got a lovely china mug from Kew Gardens (which Queen Charlotte, King George III's wife established) and cupcake decoration packs for the next time I make some cupcakes for friends and what not, yum! And my Canberra cousins gave me this cool magnetic notepad! And a variety of gifts from M and Grandpa. Oh and my Godmother gave me this perfume.

So yeah, great stuff! A very good birthday indeed, there's still cake left, niiice.

Anyway, I should be off, because I work tomorrow at 9:30am so I better head to bed soon. Memes to follow tomorrow.

7:01pm: Early in the day that is.

Anyway first the bad news, I heard back from the Jewish school, sadly I did not get the job although apparently the Head of the Primary School enjoyed meeting with me. Do'h! I tell you I just don't interview well! Which is a huge problem when one doesn't have enough work.

With that in mind I decided that I better get onto applying for Newstart Allowance, but because Centrelink is a bitch I couldn't do it online! Apparently the page wasn't available, although it seems I should have tried opening it on a few other browsers because after trying to call them up on the phone and finding out the wait time was going to be over 45 minutes I decided I best go to the Centrelink Office. Where I was told to call a number from one of the onsite phones, this was irritating, but I figured it would be an internal line and therefore I'd get on to someone faster. I don't know about that, I certainly had to listen to that Godawful Muzak for far too long. Then when I finally got on to someone I found I had to make a phone appointment and the next one isn't until 2nd January. Well, shit.

Hmpf, so after that I went to the Aldi in Liechhardt to get more cheese cubes and some butter to make frosting for my mini-cupcakes. I also got some paper towel and hoped to get some super sized tomato and BBQ sauce for the Christmas Tree at the RSL club for the Rural Fire Service volunteers, but to my surprise Aldi didn't have the super-sized ones, I'll have to go to Coles.

I made the frosting, but er...for reasons unknown, I decided to make the full amount of the online recipe - probably because Mum mentioned a lack of it as a reason she didn't like my cupcakes so much - it came out delicious, but in a huge amount. Fortunately the internet tells me you can freeze butter cream frosting so most of it has gone on the freezer. I'm sure it'll be useful.

In other news I have concerns, this morning I lost a pen down the side of my bed-couch, so I had to lift it up into it's bunk-bed configuration so I could get to it. In doing so, not only did I face a mighty struggle to get it back down, I discovered that the middle slat of the bed I sleep on is almost cracked right through! Well, shit, what am I supposed to do with that? I have no money to replace it, although the internet suggests I should move it to the foot end of the bed. I don't really want to open up the bed again, but maybe I won't have to. I'll check it out after I finish this.

I'm also worried about my big New York Cityscape lamp, yesterday I managed to knock the lampshade and light fixture bit clean off when moving my couch pillows. I managed to screw the light bit back in and it still works, but the lampshade is all askew now, not very attractive, I wonder if there's a wpay to straighten it?

And finally in my quest to procrastinate on that assignment, let's catch up on the rest of those Memes!

Back to Sunday! )

Yikes, that took forever! I've only just put my dinner on!

And now off to see about my bed.

10:33pm: It's seriously annoying because it's in a weird area of my foot and I can't really get to it I've also got other itchy areas, I think I mosquito must have got me at some point today.

Anyway! Today was the party, which went very well indeed, what with it big being a lovely day and I got to wear casual Albert! However, something quite unfortunate happened. Dad has been working hard getting the black stains out of the doona, but in doing so he's been using bleach and some of it, some how got on my dress! Only two spots admittedly, but the horror! My poor dress! Now I'll have to colour the spots in with black permanent marker or try and spot dye it. Bah! What an ass.

But yes, a very good day with very good food, plus the little bro came along too! This is still unusual as he's only stopped working on the weekends, part way through this year. And we even got to speak with the Big Bro through FaceTime, although not for long. But we should be set for Christmas lunch.

And the cake got rave reviews! Which considering it was a packet mix was a bit of a blow, Uncle Sam even said he preferred it to my cupcakes, boo...apparently I haven't been putting enough frosting on the cupcakes though, too much cake not enough creamy stuff was the consensus. Hmmm, maybe I do need to make the full amount of icing as instructed in recipes, it always seemed to be way too much to me.

Anything else to report? Oh! Mum and I used the hair straightener this morning! Good news is it works! Bad news is with hair as thick as mine it's more of a two person operation, nuts. Although I figure I might go over it before the interview on Tuesday.

And on that note I shall catch up in the Memes!

First Saturday's one though! )

Oops! Almost out of time here, gotta go to bed soon! So on that note I'll catch up on the rest of the memes later.

For now, though, goodnight!

9:32pm: Which isn't surprising as I'm watching My Strange Addiction and tonight we're looking at a chap obsessed with balloons, like actually obsessed...he has a balloon room in his house, collects them and even rescues endangered balloons - like ones at car dealerships that might get popped or blow away. Now aside from the trespassing issue he's not sucking helium out of them or anything so this is probably the least dangerous one yet. Although I guess if one of them popped while he was sleeping and covered his face he might suffocate...plus he has a wife who seems rather put off by it, so awkward.

Balloons are fun though, LOL.

In other news I finally got around to watching The Day of the Doctor aka the 50th Anniversary show I recorded last week...or was it two weeks ago? Well, anywho I watched it don't look if you don't want to be spoiled )

In other news I've got one more overseas card to do, but I've run out of Christmas stickers with which seal my envelopes and I have to go to my newsagency to get some more, which I won't be able to get until Saturday. I was considering doing it on the way home from work tomorrow, but M has invited me over - Grandpa is in hospital after his hip replacement operation and M is still not good on her feet after her foot operation - and I'll be cooking marinated chicken legs for Saturday lunch for her as well as our usual Canasta.

On Sunday we'll be going up to my Aunt Weed's for a Birthday Lunch for M (it's her birthday today) which Mum and I are making the cake for - I was most shocked when she told me she doesn't like my cupcakes! Hmpf! I think it's because the last few times I've forgotten to put in the baking soda so they haven't risen properly, I told her my latest batch was perfect, plus I can make a vanilla flavored cake. But she insists on making one from a packet mix, we shall see. Although we will be adding passion fruit to the icing mixture so there's that, and cream for the middle.

Anyway! I don't think I got quite enough sleep last night because I was really tired this afternoon so I better catch up on the Thursday memes and then turn in.

Stop Meme Time! )

Right! Better make sure I've got everything packed up for tomorrow and the weekend!

Goodnight all!

10:10pm:It's me!

Yes, the party went well, with yummy Thai food and cheese cake and Vienetta ice cream cake! And presents for Mack, including the solar powered robot thing my little bro bought and my card. Which reminds me I owe him some money since we're supposed to go half on it.

Anyway, Mack liked my card, sadly I didn't get a picture of it since I didn't think of it until it was too late, do'h.

Mack also got a walkie-talkie set from my grandparents and parents, which he really seemed to enjoy once they got it working.

However, I must say I'm most sleepy today, I practically feel asleep after everyone (excepting the grandparents, of course) left, but now I've got my second wind, which is a bit inconvienent since I do have to go to bed soon.

Anyway, a good time was had by all and I don't have much else to report, except I shouldn't do too much internetting because apparently last time I was here I used up half of Grandpa's internet allowance for the month! Definitely better steer clear of YouTube when I'm here.

And finally Meme time!

Booking Through Thursday

Dogs and Pets

My dog just had his birthday (12 years old, thanks), so … how do you feel about books about dogs or pets? Fluffy stories of fluffy family members? Solid books on training them or taking care of them? Touching reminiscences of trouble and the way a person’s dog (or pet) has helped get them through? (Mind you, almost all the pet-related books on my shelf are about dogs, but I’m well aware that people love their cats, horses, ferrets, rabbits, fish, etc. just as much, so … any species is fine!) Any favorite books to recommend?

Hmmm, well, the first stories were about animals, in fact the first story I ever completed and showed someone (my Year 5 teacher) was about a girl who swapped bodies with her cat!

As for actual published books...I can't think of any off the top of my head, I did enjoy the Animals of Farthing Wood and Black Beauty was pretty good.

And now I best be off.

Goodnight all!

10:22pm: So, I went to my friends birthday gathering tonight at the jazz bar and it was pretty fun for the most part, but then just before 9pm when I planned to leave I got this terrible headache and of course that made me feel pretty gross. Which really put a damper on the evening for me, especially when I discovered that I'd missed the bus I needed to get to get home.

It was going to be half an hour before the next one came, and I didn't really feel like waiting so I thought about catching another bus to Town Hall rather than Central, but my head was really hurting (despite having taken an ibruprofen for it), so I gave in and caught a taxi.

Which you know, is hardly the action of someone who has a very tight budget, $22 it cost me! But...what can you do? I'd probably just be getting home now if I'd waited to get the bus.

Although...my headache has gone away...so maybe I could have waited it out. But yeah...

On the upside, I did get to the party and enjoyed some dumplings and cake (although, I'm a bit worried that could have triggered my headache, it was very rich) and I did everything I needed to today, clean up the apartment, get to the psychiatrist, get to work and then to the party. There was some nervousness throughout the day, but hey I managed to hack it.

However, the one thing I haven't done is sent in that job application yet, which I really, really need to do,so I suppose I better wrap this up and go do that.

Wish me luck with my endeavours!

Goodnight all!

10:26pm: I just caught the tale end of a report on US Gun Laws on SBS, man, no matter how many times I hear about those I can't get over how insane they are. And the mentality of the NRA, seriously those guys have to be on crack. For instance just now I saw tiny shotguns for kids! Like actual real life shotguns, dude what?

Anyway! I got everything done today, had my waxing done, went to the gym, finished my birthday card for Dad and here I am at my parents place. Although I should have called ahead because as it turned out Dad was at a meeting after school and didn't get home until much later than usual! While I was waiting for him to show up Aunt Lorraine called to wish him a happy birthday and so did the big bro! Fortunately, the latter was able to call back on Skype. Although the little bro remained silent, although he's got his mobile phone back luckily seems he ran up a fortune in mobile internet usage. I sympathise! I for one got a message today telling me I've used up all my data so bummer no internet surfing on the bus, unless I get that one that has wireless in it.

But back to Dad, some people at work got him a super delicious chocolate cake! Yum, yum! Apparently you can have chocolate at some points LOL. It would be rude not to ;O) But er yeah whatever.

And I guess I should wrap this up, because I'm on this annoying as Hell keyboard and I could well end up deleting the whole damn thing will a slip of my finger.

So goodnight!

10:58pm: Yes indeed I did and got to have some very yummy food and spend time with the extended family and all that. A good time was had by all.

I didn't do so well at work, in fact I felt so bad the boss noticed and suggested I go home early, so instead of finishing at 1pm I finished at 11am instead. It was a bit weird actually because I feel all right now, except for the runny nose. I did take some decongestant tablets before going to work though, maybe those things really don't agree with me or something. It does say on the pack you should check with your doctor before taking them if you take anti-depressants, which I do. Hmmm...

Although I was reminded today that when I went to see the doctor, I kind of forgot to mention that prior to this all day dizziness thing I'd been having trouble with short spurts of dizziness between breakfast and lunch. What the Hell is that all about. Note to self mention that next time I go to the doctors. Which may be sooner rather than later because I didn't realise I was running down to my last repeat on my anti-depressant and I don't see the pyshicatrist for another three months. Whoops.

Now, should I do some memes? Or should I save that for tomorrow? I think I'll save that for tomorrow, the nose is still rather irritated.

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

Goodnight all!

Oh and I finally opened that green USB mouse Dad got for me, it works great! Although I must remember to turn it off, because it's wireless and thus runs on batteries which will run out if I forget.

10:30pm: Well, it seems likely that I will be moving back into the apartment, which is cool beans indeed! Especially since I've got my Foxtel here which leads to my title up there. I'm watching my cake shows! Mmm, delicious, delicious cakes. Lucky for me I don't have any cake ingredients here right now otherwise I'd probably be tempted to make some cupcakes.

But alas no, instead I have to figure out the logistics of getting a months worth of stuff over here. Fortunately, the stars are aligned because op Sunday afternoon/evening my mother goes to the airport for her trip to France. I can hitch a ride and not only enjoy the sights of the airport, but get a ride for me and my stuff. Although not too much stuff...Mum has a huge suitcase to take with her. Actually I'll have to look into this, but I guess I don't need to take everything over right away, I can bring it over in batches or something.

Man I really want some cake now. :OP

Anyway, I've actually all ready seen this ep so I better do some Memes and then take a shower because I have to wash my hair.

The Memes! )

Right it's almost 11 so I better go get that hair washed!

10:16pm: Yes indeed! I brought new sneakers today at the mall, they were on sale for $80 and they're very snazzy indeed! :OD Black and green and Nikes. Here's a pic. I wore them to the gym today and then to walk up to the IGA to get chicken legs for dinner. My feet feel fine, which is very good news because now I can afford to wait a week until I can see the podiatrist.

As for the gym, I went to the one at the Uni without the pool, the one with cool machines, alas someone was on the bike so I had to use the other type of machine. I managed to get some better results out of it I must say, and ironically, when I used the treadmill I couldn't get it to read my pulse so it didn't work as well, boo. I was going to go to the pool afterwards, but it's been raining all day long and I didn't have anything at home for dinner so decided to skip the swimming so I'd be able to get to the shop and home at a decent hour.

In other news, I'm a bit bummed, they've moved my house show's timeslot so it now shows earlier in the evening when I'm not home these days. Bum! I'm not sure what I'm going to do when I move back here, although all things considered it'll probably have moved again when I do. And failing that I'll have my VCR bac so I can record it on tape. :O) Plus this means I don't have to stay up watching it, so can get enough zzzs!

Not much else to report, although when I went and bought the sneakers I also went to the supermarket to get some rubber gloves and discovered there was still some Easter chocolate that was like 75% off! Well you have to get it, don't you? So...I got two elegant bunnies, nice.

And that's pretty much all I have to say for now. I'll be off, my cake show is on!

Goodnight!

Oh! And I exchanged my cardigan for a new one, hopefully this one will work out!
