11:03pm: One of my teeth is hurting, I think I might need some new filling stuff put on it (I'm not sure what it is exactly, it's more a preventive type thing, I don't have an actual cavity), last week it felt like something chipped off said tooth and now it's kinda sensitive and stuff.

Only problem is I still haven't figured out which dentist to go to! I saw one that said they give rebates for private health fund members aka me, but it doesn't appear on the preferred providers list on the fund website. Also they didn't have any appointments for Monday or Tuesday and I can't really do Wednesday or Thursday and I don't think I should wait until Friday. Although the other place didn't have online appointments so I'll have to call tomorrow to find out when they can fit me in.

Sigh, and this is why you have to keep your teeth well-maintained.

In other news, my mother asked me to make cupcakes last night for my old landlady's concert today and you know I never turn down a chance to make cupcakes. However, I somehow managed to totally screw them up! They're all hard now. I've made frosting to go with them now, but obviously I couldn't let them be used for the get-together. So now I've got twenty-four of these tough cupcakes to eat. LOL fail.

Oh well, at least I went skating yesterday, which was heaps of fun! And I also made lasagna for dinner tonight which was super delicious. I even did a tiny bit of writing tonight, LOL. Well, every little bit helps!

Now, it's getting late and I've got to get my zzzs so I'm gonna wrap this up here.

Goodnight all!

11:24pm: Right so I've left writing this entry rather late - aka story of my life these days :OP - but I do at least have something intriguing to relate!

So yesterday did not start well, in fact there was a huge fuck-up, namely I never turned my alarm back on after Thursday and in my infinite wisdom I grouped Tuesday's and Thursday's alarm with the weekend so you can see where this is going.

I didn't wake up until 10 to 10am when I'm meant to be at work at 9:30am!! So there was a mad dash to get there, but even so I was a whole hour late. Fuuuck. This is like the third time this has happened to me, admittedly that's over three years but I feel like this isn't the usual sort of thing that happens to a person.

Anyway, to get back to the cake mystery - at work on Saturday there was a slice of delicious looking chocolate mousse cake. I had a little sliver of it during lunch, although my co-workers didn't notice it and thus didn't have a slice. At the end of the day I was severely tempted to finish off the cake, but since I was making cupcakes for Father's Day/Mum's Birthday I decided to leave it for my work colleague on Sunday.

Except...there was no cake in the fridge today! Like I distinctly recall putting it back in the fridge so where the hell did it go? Eventually it looked as if one of the librarians who was there yesterday must have eaten it, since the empty cake-box was on the fridge. Except...it was a different box! So the chocolate mousse cake and its box have disappeared! So weird...could the cleaners have taken it? Seems unlikely and where did the box go?!

Perhaps there's a Bermuda Triangle in the library kitchen, LOL.

Oh and after work I went ice skating after a stop at my house because I managed to leave my bag behind in my rush. And I finally got my beanie that my friend bought me because I was still battling my cold at the time. I paid her the 20 bucks for it and also ended up purchasing another cute Pusheen "I love Kitties" t-shirt at the actual Jay-Jays. I did get 10% since I became a member there.

Anyway, it's swiftly approaching midnight and I swear I mustn't be getting enough sleep so I best wrap this up, suffice to say dinner at Mum and Dad's place tonight with cupcakes for dessert was a yummy success!


I better be off then, so goodnight!

11:29pm: The Fed-Express! He's at Wimbledon right now, playing for what could be his 8th Title! Of course, I'm not gonna be able to watch the whole thing because it's only just started and I suck at staying up late even if it's only for one night.

He's just broken serve, but who knows what's going to happen because he's up against a tough competitor! Not Nadal, but a super tall guy from Croatia who has beaten him once. So fingers and toes.

So, I'm here at Mum and Dad's place so Mum and I can watch the Final together, Mum suggested having a Wimbledon inspired supper of finger sandwiches, vanilla cupcakes with jam and cream and strawberries and cream. Very elegant! Mum took a photo of me, but it's not my best angle, LOL! I'm also wearing the Tennis T-shirt I got many years ago, hopefully it'll be good luck.

Anywho, I better make this entry quick as time is getting on and having done my Russian yet (I forgot yesterday and lost my eight day streak, boo) and my tablet battery is getting rather low.

Plus, it's not like I have much to report, I went to church, went to work, made the cupcakes and came over here.

And whoot! Fed-Ex has taken the first set, come oooon you can do it!

And now I shall wrap this up, goodnight all!

10:46pm: Not sure if I mentioned this but I borrowed a DVD series from the library the other week called The 72 Cutest Animals and of course it's full of cuteness! They've just shown the Elephant Seal, the adults aren't that cute, but the little calfs sure are! Man, I love seals and how they have to wriggle along, LMAO, boing, boing, boing! And so on :OP Looove it.

Anyway moving along, it's been a busy day! First there was work at Mona Vale Library this morning, it started off rather quiet, but ended up being quite busy and then afterwards volunteering at Dee Why Library. I arrived rather later than usual for the latter because I forgot my phone this morning so had to go via the Granny Flat to get it and I also had to pick up my newly altered pinstripe pants! :O) They're looking good although I have tried them on yet.

Speaking of pants though, I did buy a black pair with wider legs at Warriewood yesterday, I got them from Suzanne Grae which is kind of an old lady clothes shop, but it has the benefit of short length pants, which means they actually fit me without needing to be taken up! Praise the Lord! They look very nice, except they do seem to be slightly tight? But I think they'll expand a bit, I hope so! But it's not like I could have got the next size up because then they'd be too big. Seriously, what's up with pants and me? Pisses me off.

Eeee! Break in proceedings to say the panda has just shown up on the DVD and eeee they're so CUTE!!! They look like soccerballs! It cracks me up.

What else to report? Well, my throat seems to be a bit dry today...weird, I hope I'm not getting a cold (knock on wood), maybe I should gargle or something?

Oh! And I almost forgot, dinner with the co-worker last night went really well! On Mrs S's advice I made cupcakes, but I think I mucked up the recipe a little because they didn't come out as nice as they usually do. In fact the first batch was kind of a write-off to be honest. Oh well, at least I got the frosting right this time around!

My co-worker baked chicken and added some Hoysien sauce (I think), which was Chinese inspired, but there was also mashed potato and sliced potato with a Peruvian sauce on it. Which I've tried before at Mrs S's place, it's quite nice! And the second batch of cupcakes turned out OK, so there was that as well. Her boyfriend who lives in the sharehouse too joined us, so that was interesting!

So yeah good time being social, go me.

Anyway, I better wrap this up and head off, I've got to go to bed and do my Russian!

But! I can inform you the panda got to be number 1 in the list, as it should be, LOL.

Sand now, goodnight!

11:08pm: Yep, I've been making up a batch after last week's mix up when I thought my friend's house warming party was on! Had to eat most of those cupcakes myself, which could well explain why - according to the scale at the gym - my fat content has gone up. However...my actual weight has gone down, WTF? That doesn't even make sense...or maybe it does, fat weighs less than muscle. Still seems weird to me though.

Anyway! I gotta make the frosting before I go to bed, which is soon!

I've just remembered though that I forgot to call my other friend about coming to the house warming party! Fuuuck, it's probably too short of notice to do it now, but I guess I'll send her a text tomorrow and see if she's interested in coming.

Well, there's been some interesting developments re: the apartment situation, it would seem that we are going to buy one in the building we were originally looking at, as they've offered to sell a studio apartment that's in it at the same amount as the one in the 'Highline'. I'm still wondering if this is a good idea...I sure as Hell hope the builders aren't a bunch of shonks, I don't want to have to frig around with leaky bathrooms and whatever like Mrs S is right now (I have to come in early on Monday for this very reason, grumble grumble.) Hopefully it'll work out.

Not much else to say...although I had quite the busy day! I went to the mall after work and finally got around to buying some new gumboots, there was however a complete lack of Easter eggs, damn those things disappear so fast now! Sucks.

I also got to the gym, which I'm quite proud of since I've been slacking, plus there's probably going to be a fair bit of junk food in my weekend. :OP Plus there were still some eggs at the IGA across the road so I got some of those.

And there was also dinner at Mum and Dad's place, which the little bro also attended, Mum, Dad and the little bro had quiche while I had left over lasagna, delish! The parentals and I also watched Family Feud it was pretty hilarious as Dad kept ragging on the carry-over champion family who not only ended up winning the car, but finally getting the $10,000 Final Feud amount, LMAO. I told him I'd tell you all about this, so there you go. :OP

OK, the dishwasher which I put the beater whisks in has finally finished its washing so I gotta haul and get the frosting made! And then bed!

And uh...I'll get back to those Memes one day! :OP

Goodnight all!

11:32pm: I have no idea why it's taking so long! I hope it hasn't got lost in the mail, I actually called my bank asking after it, but their computer says it's definitely been sent and I checked my address with them and it was right so... The lady I spoke to said that she could send another card out, but if the first one was to arrive on Monday I wouldn't be able to use it! And then...be stuck waiting three to five days for the second one to come! Fuck that. I sure hope it comes on Monday, I'm not sure how much longer I can go without easy access to a bank account!

I suppose I could just go to the Mall tomorrow and withdraw like...two hundred bucks or something, but I really hate the thought of carrying that much dough around, what if I lose it?!

But today was kind of embarrassing, firstly I had to borrow some money from Mrs S so I could afford my hair cut (technically, I don't think you're meant to do that, but she assured me it'd be fine and she knew where I lived :OP) However, the hair cut was $89 so I didn't have enough for my waxing appointment. I tried to call Mum, but she didn't answer her phone and Dad's went straight to voicemail so I couldn't have either of them pay for me over the phone, so I was stuck. I actually hadn't been home since leaving at around 1pm for the hair appointment and I thought it was possible the mailman could have come by in that time, so I pushed my waxing appointment back to check that out - suffice to say no card! So I just cancelled the appointment and figured I'd just give my tweezers a good work out.

Later on Mum called though and convinced me to see if they still had an appointment open and they did, so back to Warriewood I went. It was for the best, since my other consideration was to get the waxing done after work tomorrow at the Mall (where the nearest branch of my bank is), but it's never a good idea to have the waxing done on the same day as the event you're going to.

The lady who did my eyebrows and lips was quite funny, so that was fun. :OP

I also got Mum to give me her card details so I could pay for the reunion ticket, it is tomorrow after all and I'm pretty sure it's poor form not to pay for an event before you show up to it, especially if you're not good friends with the host!

Oh! And of course I can't neglect to mention that today is St Paddy's Day! Toast the green my friends! I made cupcakes for the get-together after church - which alas I won't be able to go to - with green frosting! :OD Sadly since I gave up chocolate for Lent, I didn't have any, but here's what they look like (Mum added the green lollies on top).

And whilst I wasn't able to have chocolate, I did make the choice to have green fairy bread instead. Which is very 'Straylian, so bring it!

And now, I must be off, tomorrow looks to be a busy day! I sure hope the weather will be better than it is right now...I have to take public transport to the reunion tomorrow and I don't want to end up blown off my feet or soaked head to toe!

Oh...and lastly...my hair is looking great! Except...the hairdresser cut it slightly too short, so now I'm going to have fiddle around with the sides until the grow long enough to tie back. Do'h!

But now, I say goodnight!

11:49pm: t-shirt when I saw it in K-Mart this evening! Because, how could I not! Especially since I seem to recall seeing the same shirts last year, but not getting one only to find them all sold out when I went back!

Anyway, it's a men's extra-small, because apparently K-Mart doesn't have BTTF shirts for ladies, which seems quite the rip-off, they have plenty of Star Wars themed t-shirts in the women's section, so why not BTTF. But it fits pretty damn well, so yaaay.

Moving on, my busy day when very well! Although for some reason that may or may not be related my right thumb hurts when I bend it, I have no idea what I could have done to it. I guess I could have picked up some heavy books at work today...Man, I need to figure out some exercises for it, I've been working on my other fingers at the gym with weights, but I have no idea how to get the thumb involved.

Anywho, as you can no doubt see I left it quite a bit late to do this entry so I don't have time to say much more, but my bank card still hasn't arrived! It better come tomorrow otherwise I'm going to have to ring my mother up so she can pay for my hair to be done over the phone (although I've just realised, she's doing so relief teaching tomorrow so she may not be available, shiiit) Plus I haven't actually paid for the reunion! So you know, that'll be kind of awkward.

But, there's still tomorrow! So fingers crossed it arrives! And that my cupcakes turn out well, I got the green food colouring today, must remember not to put too much of it in, last time I used red food colouring it was a bit overkill, LOL!

And now, I bid you all goodnight!

11:30pm: At the Fed-Ex/Stan the Man match! I swear it was too high or something, because never have I seen the Fed-Ex hit so many balls into the net! Never in my life!

It started out really well for Fed-Ex too! In no time at all he was two sets up! Then Stan the Man hurt his knee, had a medical time out and returned to take two games himself bringing it into the fifth set, where things continued to be edge of your seat and then finally Fed-Ex broke Stan the Man's serve and managed to win! OMG , I really hope that he can recover for the final because it'd seriously suck if after all that Fed-Ex ends up going down in straight sets!

Anywho! I've dilly-dallied on writing this entry as I got caught up in the Legends Game that's happening now, Goran Ivanisvic is there with Pat Cash vs the McEnroes! It's hilarious! Although man John McEnroe's got oooold.

But! A quick Happy Australia Day and I also figured out what happened with my cupcakes yesterday, I made a huge error in calculations and put less than half the proper amount of caster sugar in! No wonder they tasted like crap.

The ones I made this morning though were excellent! Hooray! Good eatin' for sure.

But now I must head off, bed calls and so does midnight!

11:33pm: Yes! Although it was looking a bit dicey at around 10:30am when I noticed a message from the little bro saying he hadn't received the deposit from the Canadian girl yet and time was running out! He said he'd call her during his lunch break, but I prepared myself for the news I'd have to move.

Then just as I was about to get a phone number of a removalist Mrs S used when she moved last year I noticed another SMS had come in, it was good news! The Little Bro must have checked his bank account and the deposit was there! The move is off! :OD

So, that's a huge relief! Although I did briefly think maybe I should have moved in, because as I did tell Dad I sometimes do get lonely, but I'm more comfortable here. I just have to do more cleaning.

In less happy news, I made cupcakes tonight, but I must have done something wrong because they came out dry and tasting like crap. This hasn't happened to me in forever! They're pretty much unsalvagable too, like even if I slathered them with frosting they'd still taste icky. I'm a bit concerned the eggs might be off, I sure as Hell hope not because as I usually do when I make cupcakes I ate quite a bit of the batter. I guess all I can do is cross my fingers!

And make cupcakes tomorrow morning...since I really want to serve some up for Australia Day and just because. :OP

For now though, I better be off, although it's my day off and a Public Holiday besides I didn't get enough sleep the last two nights and that's sure to quick my ass if it continues.

So for now, goodnight!

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.

10:15pm: Well maybe not everyone, but I sure do! I cant figure out if it's because it's nearly that time o' the month, or because the weights I lifted at the gym on Friday were too heavy or because of my new shoes. Or perhaps a combination of all three... Either way it sucks.

Although it does seem to come and go, right in the middle of work today my poor lower back was so sore I wasn't sure if I wanted to drag my butt to church, however by the time I finished I felt all right, so off I went - although Dad ended up backing out. The new priest was there, he gave a good sermon and spoke really well, which is impressive when you consider English is his third language, he was born in Africa.

Moving along, the show I'm watching called Zombie House Flipping is very amusing, I have no idea how 'real' it is, but right now the team is trying to deal with an alligator in the pool. Why they haven't just called Animal Control...

Oh! And I got the frosting for the cupcakes done this morning and even used my special frosting kit to pipe it onto the cupcakes. They looked very fancy and I got an SMS from Mrs S earlier this evening to say they went down a treat and there's some left over for me to enjoy, yaaay!

What else? Um...I did have something to say, but I wanted to finish my Russian for today (because I keep leaving it too late and end up skipping a day) and now I've totally forgotten what it was! Hmm, I suppose it mustn't have been important.

So let's do some Memes instead )

Right, it's almost 11:30pm and work's tomorrow so I better wrap this up and get ready to hit the hay!

Meme Catchup

10:29pm: It's a fictional epic about the history of Russia, I bought it at a second hand shop like a year or more ago but then I kept borrowing other books at the library and since I had them for a limited amount of time I read them first, but now I've finally got to it. I hope it'll be good after all this time, but it seems interesting so far.

So, this morning was the priest's last mass and afterwards the farewell morning tea. I ended up running a bit late to church, which was made even worse by the fact that I couldn't find a parking spot! I must have spent like five minutes driving around looking, eventually I managed to find one. And fortunately Mum had sent me a text message so I knew where she and Dad were sitting otherwise I'd have been looking for them for ages. :OP

There was a heap of food at the morning tea, I'm not sure if my cupcakes were all eaten because Dad and I left quite early, and at that point only Mum and I had had a cupcake! Oh well, at least that meant I was able to take three for Mrs. S, Patrick and her mother.

After dropping Dad off at the parental abode I headed back to my place, I had planned to get to Mona Vale a bit early so I could show the people at the pet shop a recording of my fish tank filter (yes, I'm afraid the saga continues), but as usual I kinda lost track of time and only just made it to work in time!

Work went pretty well, especially since I had such a sore knee last night, except at the end where I unwittingly embarrassed the Library Manager by pointing out that the printout of library charges said 20 cents, apparently it's supposed to be 30 cents now. It didn't seem like a big deal to me, but apparently the Manager felt it made the library look unprofessional and whatnot. Shit, awkward. I hope this doesn't lead to long-term awkwardness, because nothing screws over your job prospects than awkwardness.

Anyway...I was going to do a meme or two, but I have no idea where I left off...pft this is what happens when you procrastinate on stuff. But I do need to get to bed, I didn't get quite enough zzzs last night and that can't be good. Plus I want to see how the new cotton sheets work out!

So, I shall be off! Here's hoping I can figure out my Meme situation tomorrow, especially since I've had to rearrange when I go to M and Grandpa's place, apparently they're doing something for the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday.

Ow My Knee

Oct. 29th, 2016 11:59 pm
anonymoose_au: (Default)
11:44pm: Weird! I wonder if I did something weird while ice skating this afternoon or if's just being an ass? Probably the latter as my knee is known for such sheningans.

Right I need to make this entry quick as I'm in the middle of my Russian and I need to go to bed sooner rather than later as church begins at 9:30am tomorrow morning.

Speaking of church, after I got home from ice skating I made cupcakes for the priest's farewell, fingers crossed that they've come out OK, I worried I might have overcooked them a bit, which would suck because I kept a close eye on them. I think they cook a bit more after I take them out of the oven though, so I best remember that.

After making and frosting the cupcakes (also I hope the frosting is OK! I should have used the medium sized mixing bowl as it turned out and I sort of played it by ear with the amounts of ingredients I added) I headed over to Mum and Dad's house for the night. At which point I spent the rest of the night watching TV, the new MacGyve still rather sucks, seriously, just 'cause Mac doesn't fire a gun doesn't absolve him of the fact his back up guy does. Original MacGyver would be so pissed.

I always enjoy my house shows though! Good times.

And oops, I just realised I forgot to bring the actual cable for my external hard drive so I can't open my Sims Thing! Ah well, we'll have to skip it this entry.

And now, I must be off!

Goodnight all!
anonymoose_au: (Pinkie Pie Bounce!)
11:33pm: Yep! And that's not just my own opinion, but that of my parental units and the priest who came over for dinner after church tonight. My little bro was supposed to come over, but alas he pulledut at the last minute, what a shame! I really should call him and see how he's going, I don't think I've even told him the exciting news about the apartment.

I also need to call my Uncle Sam and Aunt Jo to find out when I should come over with my Simpsons DVDs and to play Scrabble, they originally suggested this Sunday afternoon, but obviously that didn't go down.

Now, I did promise to have a more substantial entry today, but I forgot that I was going to be here at the parentals and therefore have my tablet, which doesn't have the greatest keyboard and doing he whole meme thing is a huge pain in the butt. I guessing could turn on the Bluetooth keyboard, but I'm a bit too lazy for that.

Oh dear, I just tried to turn it on and I've just discovered I didn't switch it off so it's out of charge, do'h! So there you go, it's not meant to be. :OP

What else to report? Not much although this week marks the beginning of my three and a bit work days with Mrs S! I hope I go all right! And then there's the interview on Friday, I remembered somewhat belatedly that at the moment all council jobs are on twelve month contracts and as my workmates pointed out the future is a bit murky what with all this council amalgamation stuff. Gulp! After speaking to Mum though I've reoncilled myself to this possibility if I get the job...at least I hope so!

OK it's quarter to twelve and I have to keep my zzzs up so I'll finish up here, goodnight all!
anonymoose_au: (Default)
11:48pm: So I was going to make some cupcakes tonight just because and even went down to the 7-11 on the corner to get milk, but unfortunately for me there was a problem. My eggs were off! I tested them by putting them in water and the bobbed to the top. Suffice to say, I wasn't going to risk using them! Unfortunately, I'd all ready creamed the caster sugar and butter, so I had to cover the mixing bowl and put it in the fridge. I sure hope it'll be OK for tomorrow...because otherwise, what a huge waste!

In other news, I went ice skating today after work and what fun! It wasn't nearly as busy as last Saturday and I was able to try going backwards a bit more, it seems I need to turn my head the opposite way to my instinct, which is weird, I feel like I should look over my right shoulder, but when I do I end up turning my whole body around! Still, I can't see myself ever being able to master that...Still much fun was had.

What else to report? Oh! I got my official name badge from the Mona Vale Library today! I've never had a name tag before, this is quite cool. One gentleman even made use of it, checking the name so he could use it to thank me for helping, LOL.

I also renewed a few of my library books...including one I hadn't even started yet, which was on hold, whoops so I endeavoured to power read it, and I was making pretty good progress until I realised...I wasn't actually all that interested in finding out what happened. :OP So instead I just read the end, confirmed my suspicious and I shall return it when I'm at work tomorrow. Hope the person who had it on hold enjoys it more than I did!

Also, because of the reading I have no time to do any memes! Booo. But there's not much that can be done about that now...so instead I shall be off!

Hope to have more tomorrow though.

Goodnight all!

9:52pm: I don't know what the Hell is wrong! After a really good start Nedshenko the Fourth died after just one day! This is thoroughly depressing...I really thought it'd be OK this time, what with the special Betta Fish Conditioner for the water and the heater... And like I said, when I put him yesterday he was fine, swimming around all happily.

He was a little odd this morning, he seemed to have got caught up in the heater, but seemed active enough, but when I got home from the gym he was floating almost vertically! I was rather worried, but I figured he might be asleep. Then I went back out for library volunteering and when I got back he was looking quite listless and I started to worry that he was having trouble breathing, cause it looked like it!

I was planning to look into getting a filter of some sort for him, but I just popped over to see how he was going and I'm pretty sure he's gone :O(

Fuuuuck, poor Nedshenko. I really wish I knew what I was doing wrong. I've taken a sample of water from the tank which I'm going to take to the Petstock tomorrow to see if they can tell me there's something wrong with it. Sigh, maybe I should give up on this tank and actually purchase one of those 'proper' fish tanks with the filter and the heater included.

What do you all think? Should I quit for the good of fish everywhere?

In further news, I'm rather concerned about my left wrist, I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but last week when I went to the gym to do my weights I couldn't do my bicep curls because there was terrible pain in it whenever I tried to lift the weight! So I skipped that particular exercise, hoping it would calm down, however it's still just a painful now a week later! I have no idea what I could have done to it, I can only assume I must have stuffed it up when I tried to help Mum move M and Grandpa's heavy table a couple of Sundays ago.

But I'm rather concerned about this because it also hurts when I left heavy books, which is something I have to do quite a bit at the library - I actually have a shift there tomorrow afternoon! - and when moving Mrs S about. And since I work every day there's no time to rest it...so I'm not sure how it's going to recover. Plus I can't find my wrist brace, so that sucks.

Anyway, with a lack of anything else to say...here's some Memes: )

Right, it's getting close to 11pm so I better get ready to head off, I still need to do my Russian, and make the frosting for the cupcakes I've made to celebrate Mrs S's mother and eldest sister coming for a visit.

Goodnight all!

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!

10:37pm: Was very sore today...seriously, all the way from the hip down on the outside. So getting up, walking downstairs and kneeling down - which I have to do as part of my job was most uncomfortable. It was so sore I ended up taking some Nurofen which along with the swimming - I finally got to do today! - made me feel better although it's still sore if I move it certain ways, which totally sucks, man. I hope it goes away by tomorrow, although I'm a little confused why only my left leg was hurt by the exercise I did yesterday - I assume that's what must have caused it - I must be do my leg presses unevenly or something.

Hmm, I wonder if I need to get my orthodics checked...

Anyway, moving on, I made cupcakes tonight because Mum rang me up this afternoon to ask me to do so, although I'm not entirely sure what for, and who am I to say no to that. :OD However, Mum prefers cream rather than frosting, I happened to be at IGA looking for a watering can (couldn't find one) so I went to buy some. Originally I was going to get the double thick stuff, but it was like $7! So I went with the 'whipping cream' instead, which hopefully will do as it says, otherwise it'll just run off the top of the cupcakes. I haven't actually whipped it yet, so I need to do that before I head off to bed since I won't have time to do so in the morning.

Also, since I work tomorrow, I have to leave the cupcakes outside in the carport for Mum to pick up! I hope they'll be OK out there since it's supposed to rain tomorrow and also be windy which could direct said rain into the carport area. Oh well, I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Anywho, I better do the Memes and head off!

Friday5

A Week of Good Behaviour

1. What’s the dumbest thing you did this week? Um...hmmm...I'm sure I did something dumb, but be damned if I can remember what it is right now. I did almost fall over in my own house the other day! Graceful I am not.

2. In what way did you save yourself time or energy this week? Uh...scratches head again. I'm not sure I did! Although I'm a lazy person when I'm not at the gym so I'm probably saving energy most of the time. :OP

3. How were you wasteful of personal and natural resources this week? Well, all this sitting on my butt probably is a bit wasteful of my personal resources. As for natural resources, due to burning it I ended up throwing away quite a bit of my lasagna because it ended up stuck to the dish!

4. When this week did you take advantage of the opportunity to keep your mouth shut? Ha ha ha! I never take advantage of the opportunity to keep my mouth shut! :OP

5. In what way this week were you blessed or fortunate? My IBS has calmed right down (knock on wood), so I'm feeling pretty good! Plus I live in a first world country and all that.

The (Other) Friday Five

17/6/16

1. Do you like smiling? I do! :O) It releases endorphins and all that good stuff.

2. Would you call yourself a happy or solemn individual? A happy person, solemnity really doesn't suit me.

3. What was that last thing that made you smile or laugh? A bad pun on Facebook, I do love a pun, even if it's bad, LOL!

4. Do you believe that laughter is the best medicine? Well, not exactly, but it certainly does make things easier if you can have a sense of humour.

5. Are you smiling now? Nah, but I'm feeling happy if a little sleepy!

Okedoke, time for me to go!

Wish me luck with the weather, I don't want to end up not being able to find a decent parking spot like a fortnight ago.

Goodnight!

10:58pm: Afternoon tea, that is, and the fourth person wasn't Grandpa - he did play golf today after all - but my Great Aunt Margaret, who also lives on the Northern Beaches not all that far away.

So after finishing with Mrs S this morning I hurried on home to begin cleaning, fortunately as mentioned I've been very good with keeping the place generally tidy, so I was able to straightening everything pretty quickly. Then I had to do actual cleaning - wiping down surfaces as Mum says as well as vacuuming and finally mopping the floor.

I ended up leaving half an hour earlier than I should have - that's one way to be on time! - as it turned out though, I needed to stop by the Vinnies in Narrabeen because as Mum reminded me I didn't have a milk jug or sugar bowl. There were actually a few there, but they were either part of sets or like 20 bucks each! I guess the later was because they were pretty nice ones. However, I did find two little glass milk jugs for 5 bucks each so I purchased those. Unfortunately, for me I managed to break one of them when I got home! Hmpf! Smooth move, me. However, I have a small bowl anyway, so I used that for the sugar, which I guess turned out for the best. Putting sugar in a jug is a bit odd.

Anyway! After buying the jugs I headed onwards to the school, parking in the shopping area across the road and reading my book until it was time to head on over. By this point it had started to rain again, which may have contributed to the class being rather unruly today and for some reason kids kept leaving the class to go to the bathroom! That's never happened before...I think maybe the fact there was a substitute teacher today might have had to do with it. Or maybe the weather too, if it was pouring down at lunchtime the kids probably didn't want to go out in it to get the the toilet block.

The rain had pretty much let up on the drive home, but the traffic was not that good, so it took Mum a while to get to my place with M. Also Aunt Margaret went the wrong way so she was also a bit late, however! That did give me enough time to make the cupcakes look all nice with the cream. :O)

M was also getting rid of some old cups and saucers, and since I have none, she brought them over for me to have. There's a mix of them, but they're all very nice, although I'm not sure how often I'll get to use them since I don't drink tea! And my hot chocolate would probably fill three tea cups, LOL.

Oh and Mum also bought some egg sandwiches she'd made, so a very civilised afternoon tea was enjoyed by all. :O) They also let just in time for me to watch my Letters & Numbers.

Mum did look at my purple shirt, but aside from suggesting I go to a sewing class or something she couldn't advise me much. She didn't seem to think it would be ridiculously short on me though, so I have hopes.

On the downside, despite attempting to follow the instructions in the manual I downloaded I can't get the automatic button hole function to work. I'll have to do it by hand, and also redo the buttons, because I sewed them just tonight, but not in a completely straight line. Obviously this is what rulers are for. Man, I really need to embrace the measure twice, cut/do once.

Okedoke, better wrap this up, as soon as Air Crash Investigations is over I have to hit the hay! I hope to have more about my shirt tomorrow.

For now, goodnight!

11:04pm: Ha ha ha, just a little pun there. :OP Project Purple Shirt continues and I've finally got the collar on all nice, yay! I've also hemmed the bottom, but I remain a bit concerned about the length...I have trouble with my shirts staying tucked in as it is! Although I wasn't really thinking of tucking it in, but at the same time I don't want it rising up and showing my stomach, especially in winter!

Not much I can do about it now I guess!

Anyway! I better hurry this along because tomorrow I return to my usual routine of getting up at 7:30am...which actually means I should be in bed drifting off right now! Whoops.

Tomorrow is the big day were M will be coming for afternoon tea. I hope Mrs S won't need me to stay back tomorrow like I did today because I need that time to finish cleaning my place! Although Mrs S always asks if I have something to do if she's going to ask me to stay back, so I'll just say I can't if that happens. :OP

I was hoping to have the shirt ready for tomorrow, but I don't think that'll happen, shame. But I guess I could have it for the weekend!

Oh! And it goes without saying that all went well with Mrs S today, I hadn't forgotten everything and my arm were still strong enough to do the sliding sheet and make the bed. :OP

My cupcakes were also well-received, although I was a bit concerned about the frosting, it wasn't smooth enough, unfortunately when I got home and tried to fix it, I poured too much milk in and now it's too running. Do'h! I hate it when that happens. I made three cupcakes so I ate my one, it seemed a bit heavier than my usual cupcakes, but still yummy.

On the upside, I'll be using fresh cream for the cupcakes I'm giving to M so I don't need to worry about the frosting too much.

Right, time to wrap this up and hit the hay!
