10:21pm: Hmm nice heading me :OP.
But to get to the point, the dishwasher remains unused - I went to try it this afternoon with the jury-rigged system I had set up and...the rubber topped converter thingy just burst off. I guess it was a good thing it did it before I actually turned the dishwasher on because that could have been bad.
But OMG this is so bloody annoying! I'm ready to just give up and ask the landlord - when he finally returns from his holiday - if I can have a modern tap installed because this one is a disaster. As I mentioned, it has its screw threads on the outside, not the inside - which means that the little attachment that the dishwasher tubing adaptor attaches too can't just be stuck on. I have to get an adaptor to attach to an adaptor! To further complicate things, the kitchen tap is also wider than most modern taps, so finding one is proving to be a hopeless exercise. I have one last thing I can try then I'll have no choice but to call the manufacturer of my dishwasher, but because of the age of the tap I have the feeling that I'll be shit out of luck there.
Honestly, pain in the butt, I tell you.
In other news, I have cupcakes...I made quite the dash to Warriewood Square after finishing up with Mrs S today to get the ingredients I needed, then ended up being late to the Catechists Meeting (which, you know, wasn't that terrible for me because I find those things boring as all Hell) only for there to be so much food there all ready that they weren't needed! So now, I've got eight cupcakes to eat (Mum took three and I ate one) - and some leftover batter to freeze (I need some freezer bags). Oh dear what a shame :OP
But seriously, I shouldn't eat too much junk food, I think I might still be 1% higher in body fat than is healthy if the scale at my gym can be trusted. I'll take a couple of the cupcakes to Mrs S's tomorrow, this batch particularly well baked if I do say so myself.
And you may be wondering what's up with the internet? Well, I've given in and decided fuck it, I'll let it get rolled over to the bigger data plan - according to my provider's webpage I won't even be paying more - it's a bit of a pain, only because if the ADSL starts working before the end of the month I won't be able to roll my plan back (because when I don't have to rely on mobile internet I hardly use any bandwidth on it at all! I've been spending more then I need to!) because you can only make a change to it once a month.
I have to head off soon, bed calls and all that...I was about to type something else, but I've gone and forgot it now! So I'll just do this meme and then head off.Sunday Stealing:The Beach Boys' Meme:1. SURFER GIRL : “I have watched you on the shore, standing by the ocean drawer, do you love me do you surfer girl” Were you ever interested in someone (other than a celebrity) who did not return your interest?
I think that's "draw", and nope! 2. BE TRUE TO YOUR SCHOOL : “So be true to your school now, just like you would for your girl or guy…” Looking back, how do you feel about your high school days?
LOL, that was always such a weird song...but I enjoyed high school, I'm a nerd! I liked learning all sorts of stuff and hanging out with friends and all the holidays...good times.3. FUN FUN FUN : “…and she’ll have fun fun fun till her daddy takes the T-Bird away…” What was the worst punishment you received as a teenager?
Man...I'm not all that sure actually! I was a good girl :OP So I never got grounded or anything like that. I was told off a few times, but that was pretty much it.4. I GET AROUND : “Round round get around, I get around” Where did you go on your last long trip?
Well, it wasn't exactly long
, but the last time I went anywhere that took longer than 2 hours to get to would have been in late 2014 when I went to Bathurst for my Masters Degree graduation.5. HELP ME RHONDA : “You gotta help me Rhonda, help me get her off of my mind” What do you do to cheer up after a personal tragedy such as a lost job, power outage or broken relationship?
Generally, I get on the internet and just distract myself totally. Or cry to my mother.6. CALIFORNIA GIRLS : “I wish they all could be California girls. The west coast has the sunshine and the girls there get so tan, I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian island dolls, by a palm tree in the sand” Where are the best boys found?
In fiction? :OP LOL, nah don't ask me, I have no idea!7. SLOOP JOHN B : “I wanna go home, please let me go home, ya ya. Well this is the worst trip, I’ve ever been on…” What is the worst trip you’ve ever been on?
Hmm...my trips have been very good - knock on wood! Well, actually, this one time we got stuck in this traffic jam on a trip and I was DESPERATE to go to the toilet! I had to hold on for two hours, OMG, it was awful!8. WOULDN’T IT BE NICE : “I guess the more we talk about it, it makes it harder just to live without it, but let’s talk about it…” What is your biggest wish?
I guess more hours at the library! Maybe not full-time, I do like working for Mrs S, but I sure wish I had 35 hours of work per week - but not on the weekends so I could live like a normal person!9. IN MY ROOM : “There’s a place where I can go and tell my secrets to. In my room. In my room.” What is your favorite thing about your own personal room or space in your home/office?
Well, I do love my Crate Holder...ah space for my stuff!10. GOD ONLY KNOWS : “You never need to doubt it, I’ll make you so sure about it. God only knows what I feel about you” When was the last time you told a significant other or close relative that you loved them?
Hmmm, it would have been to my mother and probably today after the Catechist thing. 11. GOOD VIBRATIONS : “My baby has good vibrations, she’s giving me excitations…” When do you get good vibrations?
Hmmm, I guess on a nice day when the sun is shining! 12. KOKOMO : “We’ll go to Kokomo. We’ll get there fast and then we’ll take it slow. That’s where I wanna go…” What is your favorite warm weather destination?
Well, Sydney's pretty nice in the summer, and I'm a homebody so I guess I'll say that!13. DO IT AGAIN : “Let’s get back together and do it again…” If you could go back in time and gather up your school friends, what would you do again?
PARTTTTTTYYYY! Ha ha nah, we're not party animals, but hanging out in a big group at the beach would be great.
Okedoke, off I go, wish me luck with the Tap Drama!
