11:42pm: And also writing and watching stuff on TV and whatnot, which is why I've left it rather late to get around to this entry.

Besides there's not that much to report, because well I spent the day working! First with Mrs S and then at the library. I did at least figure out how to move my story forward again, I keep getting stuck for a bit then have trouble to move on. I guess my Tumblr friend was right to advise me to wait until the story is finished before posting it up, because there'd be all sorts of pressure.

But yeah not much else to report - except bizarre story from yesterday when I was at my parent's place, I got all my clothes and went into the bathroom at my parents place to take a shower. I got to pick up my towel and somehow manage to flick my socks into the toilet! It had been flushed, but...obviously I couldn't wear them after that! So yeah, that wasn't embarrassing or annoying or anything. Seriously I don't know how this happens to me. :OP

What else? Hmm, I could have sworn I had something else to write...dang...shame. Plus it's almost midnight so it's probably best I wrap this off and go to bed, I've got work at the library again tomorrow morning, so no staying up late for me.

Although, I'll say one last thing, my Bamboo Spark does have a way to change writing to editable text, sort of, I have notoriously shitty handwriting so some of the words don't come out too clearly, I'm hoping if I get a writing pad with lines on it that it might be better.

On that note, I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

So yeah...massive fail there.

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

Now I say goodnight!

11:41pm: Yeah, I've been doing that a bit lately, but that was because yesterday was rather crappy in so far as I managed to forget that I had a shift at the library!!

What makes it even worse is that I had put the detail in my phone, but I had put the wrong times, so when the alert popped up on my phone I thought I must have made a mistake. I did look in my emails, but there was nothing there saying I had a shift either so I figured I'd made a mistake. At least until I got a phone call at 9:45 asking where the Hell I was!

What makes this worse is the fact that the library has been closed since Friday because of Easter, so the amount of items in the after-hours return chute was totally overwhealming! And I was supposed to be there to help get through it so we could keep on top of it all.

I leapt out of bed, had a banana, showered and rushed to the library, but I was still half an hour late and one of the people who normal work in the back room had had to come up to render assistance.

So I stayed half an hour later to make up for my error, but still how humilating! Plus this is like the third time it's happened! I'm getting worried that I'll no longer be considered a reliably employee and this could mean bad things for my future career (such as it is). Ugh! Seriously me, can't I go fail somewhere else?!

After I finished work at the library I went to Dee Why to return the cruise ship book, I was going to try and finish it but...guide books aren't really meant to be read like regular books so I decided nah, I'd just return it. I took a bit of a walk around Dee Why before going to the library, including the new park which opened a few weeks ago. It was a nice sunny day so I figured, what the Hell. :O)

I did neglect to go to the gym though...which I remedied today after work with Mrs S - which reminds me I need to pick up my game there, I keep being five or more minutes late, which doesn't sound all that bad but honestly I literally live around the corner and surely I can do better!

Anyway, apart from that not much to report- tomorrow though is the ice skating show at Macquarie Centre! Yay! I hope Mum feels all right, she's had a cold and last I spoke to her she was sounding rather croaky, but then it often happens that you sound worse, but feel better. I also have to make sure my phone is all nice and charged so I (or Mum) can take video, I've also realised maybe if I can work up the courage I could get a photo with our figure skating Olympian - Brendan Kerry! LOL, there'd be some people on the figure skating board who'd be most jealous. :OP

But there's other stuff to do tomorrow - I want to go to the gym again - because I won't be able to go on Friday because I have a shift at the library - and there's volunteering at Dee Why before I go to Mum and Dad's place to head for the skating show. That being the case I better wrap this entry up and head for bed! I didn't even get 7 hours of zzzzs last night! Not cool, me.

Right, hope you're all well, but for me, for now, goodnight!

11:37pm: In Equador? I'm watching House Hunters International and apparently in Equador (and other places I suppose?) they don't have regular hot water, they just put heating wires around the actual shower head. Like WTF? I don't even understand how that would work without electrocuting you first time. Seems it must though. Crazy all the same if you ask me.

Anyway, not much to report I got to work at Mona Vale today early...real early as it turns out as I wasn't on today! WTF? How embarrassing! I felt pretty silly, especially since I bought a sausage roll for break time before going in. There wasn't any mini-sausage rolls there, but the owner kindly let me have a normal sized one for the same price!

So, once I discovered that I wasn't on at Mona Vale, I realised that meant I needed to do my volunteering! So it was off to Dee Why Library for that. On the plus side, at least that meant I could return the stuff I borrowed there personally because I'm still not sure if returning them at Mona Vale means they'll get checked in that same day. Because Dee Why Library doesn't let staff avoid overdue fees, which is pretty rude when I think about it...

Anyway, the volunteering went OK, although I don't feel like I got as many selections done as I should have, oh well. Once I finished I popped by the parentals on the way home to try looking for my sunglasses, but no luck. While there though Mum gave me some concerning news about my apartment, the agent had actually called me while I was driving to the library to ask for Mum's number so she could tell here something and I found out what it was.

They hadn't actually got the DA entirely approved by council when they were selling the apartments! So instead of a 15 storey tall building, they can only do a 7 storey one! Which means a whole lot of apartments will no longer exist! There's no word on whether mine will be one of these, but seriously what the fuck? I guess that news article wasn't wrong! Buying off the plan is risky. Now if the apartment does disappear we can get our money back, but I'm most irritated because the deposit we paid could have been in our bank accounts gaining interest. Instead the building company gets it! I've heard about that bullshit before, not cool not cool at all.

So, now I have to wait and see what happens.

On the upside I found my sunnies! I turned out I'd left them in the shopping bag with my new swimsuit - so it was here in my room this whole time! How embarrassing - again! I actually thought about that this morning but I'd forgotten where the bag was...so that was another worry until I found it again. But yes everything is back in hand.

Anyway, it's coming up on midnight so I better haul butt, good news, though, Plushy's grand opening of his skating school went super well and there was cake and everything! Yum! Except now I want cake ;O)

But yes, on that note, I'm out!

Goodnight all!

10:15pm: Well, at least I'm getting a good pun in, but in all seriousness this is so fucked up.

As you all know my memory sucks...and this time it's truly ruined my wallet.

I decided after watching the ice skating highlights on SBS that it was time to head to Macquarie Centre and get my skates on. So I'm driving when suddenly police car lights flash in my rearview mirror! I was surprised but thankfully had the presence of mind to pull over rather than keep driving like some of the idiots you see on RBT/ I thought maybe I was getting a random breath test, but after handing my licence over I discovered it was worse...much worse.

I had completely forgotten to register my car!

It expired last Saturday so for almost a week I've been driving around unregistered and uninsured! FUCK! How could this happen?! Why didn't I get a renewal notice?! Didn't I pay for it? (No that was my comprehensive insurance, which is a totally different thing).

The cop was very nice, but that didn't stop him from giving me a ticket for driving unregistered (although, he at least didn't give me one for being uninsured too).

A ticket for $650.

I'll type that out again for you in the back row.

SIX

HUNDRED

AND

FIFTY

DOLLARS
!!!

That's more than I earn in a week! That's nearly three weeks worth of savings towards the stamp duty for my apartment. Two and half weeks worth of rent.

It's an absolutely ENORMOUS amount of money! On top of the actual cost of registration and the CTP Greenslip (which is $900). Add to that the parking fine from a few weeks ago...and the speeding fine...my car is swallowing money like a monster. :'O(

I don't understand why this is happening! I've always been such a good driver! Now I'm speeding, illegally parking, scraping and driving unregistered like a complete loser.

What really kills me though is that for some reason, despite the fact I changed my address for my licence, Service NSW (which includes the Road Department) had my OLD address on file. How can that be?! Although as it turned out it doesn't look like the renewal slip came to my old place because I went there on my way home (I couldn't continue on to the ice rink :O( which was the cherry on top of a completely sucky cake) and the old landlord said he hadn't seen it.

So, the damn fuckers didn't even send it!! What the fuck?! The nice cop said I could ask for a review of the fine and see if they'd waive it, but I don't hold out hope...if they wouldn't take pity on me for speeding 7 minutes before I would have been going 20kms under the speed limit, I don't see why they would for driving unregistered and uninsured.

If the review fails you can take it to court, but like that'll happen! If I end up been found guilty I'd need to pay even MORE, and no way could I stand up in court and defend myself.

And here I was thinking the day was looking good because despite having forgotten to take my lunch with me to work I found my nurse's watch! It was on the shelf in the Returns Room of the library where I put my stuff, it must have fallen out. I was so glad to see it again!

However...that watch cost $7, so...it all pales in comparison.

And to top it all off? Because my car is more than five years old, it needs a safety check before I can register it. And absolutely no mechanic in the area is open on Sunday, there's no way I can register my car until Monday. I have no idea how I'm going to achieve it...I've got a shift at the library on Monday afternoon, so I'm not sure if catching a bus to Mrs S's and then back to the house to get the car and taking the car to my mechanic for the check will work because I'll only have 1.5 hours between Mrs S and the library. Although when I type it out like that....

On the other hand I feel like I need to get this looked at as soon as possible, apparently the check can take 15 minutes, but it all depends, it could end up been 40 minutes. If that happened in the 1.5 hours I'd be stuffed because the shift doesn't end until 6pm when the mechanic would be closed, so how would I even get my car?

So I guess on Monday morning I'll get to the mechanic's at 7:30 - Google says he opens at 8am, but who knows maybe he'll open early.

The thing is, I don't want to tell my parents about this...there's nothing they can do about it and even if they lent me money I'd have to pay it back so it's not like I'd save any money. However...Sunday night is when I usually go over there, but obviously I can't do that, even worse I can't go to church with Dad (either in the morning or the evening) because there's no way to get there by public transport (or at least not without catching two buses). But I'm a creature of habit so what am I meant to say? Although it's just occurred to me I could simply tell Dad (Mum will be away at a hotel) that my car's out of rego so I can't drive it without mentioning the supreme fuck-up that was the fine. I guess that'll have to do.

The other big disappoint is that I was supposed to see my grandparents' and little bro tomorrow morning (to thank the former for the money to go on the cruise and to finally give the latter that huge Ferrero Roche I got just after Christmas and which goes off at the end of this month), but obviously I can't drive there either. I rang the little bro to tell him my woes (he's had fines himself so he was most sympathetic) and he did offer to come and pick me up and even drive me to work, although we hadn't actually asked M and Grandpa if they were available for tomorrow so he called them up to ask, but they haven't got back to us yet, so who knows what will happen there.

Oh...and lastly, my activity tracker is still MIA, I called the library, but it wasn't in lost property, but then again...it's hard to describe, also the shelves are magnetic so maybe it's stuck to one of them. As for the Medical Centre, they didn't answer the phone so I have no idea if it could be there. I was planning to go there tomorrow to look, but...can't do that.

Okay then...let's wrap it up here, I still have my Russian to do.

Goodnight.

11:17pm: Don't you hate it when some bad luck completely shits on your day? Because that's what happened to me, in the form of scraping the bottom of the driver's side of my poor Green Machine when I was trying to get out of a parking lot. Fucking parking lots, I swear to God, they hate me. :O( What a mess! It's not super bad, in fact you'd have to be quite close to it to see it, but I know it's there and there's a bit of dent. :O( Suuucks.

Also, the bloody ants have come back, I guess it's my own fault for not properly cleaning the oven pan I used to make marinated chicken legs last night. I mean I rinsed it and gave it a scrub, but obviously not good enough. I almost had a heart attack when I saw the little buggers this morning, I hate ants! I thought I got rid of them, but when I went over to the sink to fill up my water jug I saw them again. Ick.

But, as I indicated it wasn't all a bad day, firstly I got called in for a shift at the library, yay! Money! And I also finished up at Mrs S's in time to go to the gym (which I had planned to do before I got the call) although it was a bit of a close thing! I didn't get a chance to look for any shorts. I did go to K-Mart looking for some after I finished work, but it would appear it's too late, everything there is autumn/winter clothes. So now I have to wear my good shorts again tomorrow, dang.

I've also just remembered that I've forgotten to call the Red Cross which I really have to do before Friday to stop my donations. Because I can't really afford it.

Anyway, I better head off now, more work tomorrow! Plus I have to do my weekly clean-up in preparation for Mum visiting! I have admittedly let the place go a bit. I'm so lazy.

So goodnight!

Reunited!

11:16pm: Yes! The 15th Year Reunion of my class (or more accurately the 16th Year Reunion - we were always a bit late as a class) happened this evening.

Man, talk about a blast from the past! Most of the class didn't actually come alas (so many people live overseas these days, don't know what's up with that...), but a smaller number of people was probably best, because these sorts of functions get loud!

Anywho, I was somewhat surprised to find when I put the info in my phone of the location this afternoon and discovered it'd take me a good hour and a half to get there! Which meant I needed to leave pretty much as soon as the ice skating finished! I hadn't heard from my friend Micki on Facebook messenger, which was bad since I didn't have her mobile, so I decided to try and use the call function on it. Which worked, yay! And I found out that Micki and another old school friend of mine, Kelly, were over at Kelly's flat and planned to go to the Reunion by Uber. And as it turned out Kelly lives on the way to the city, so I was able to drive over to her place and join them for the ride in.

I hung out with the two of them at the flat for a bit, which was cool, especially since Kelly found a notebook that our friendship group had written in way back in Year 12. Man, memories! Although we all still look the same, LOL!

So we got the Uber in a bit late - the Reunion started at 5pm, but we didn't actually leave until closer to 5:30 at which point I wondered what the likelihood would be that everyone would remember my name, but I wouldn't remember any of theirs! (Because that's a serious issue of mine, LOL) My friends agreed they might also have this problem! The Uberdriver suggested we make a game of trying to guess, although as it happens, Micki won quite easily. I had lots of trouble because a number of classmates had dyed their hair, so their faces looked kinda familiar but I didn't even have their hair to go on!

But of course, everyone seemed to remember me (like I said, beats me why! Perhaps it's the loud voice - although one of the people there theorised it was because I walked home every afternoon past the rest of them at the bus stop so I was burned into their memories or something LOL). My two friends and I mostly stuck together but we did end up talking to most people, although there were a few I didn't get around to, ironically one was perhaps the only person's whose names I remembered! Ah well.

However! In what was probably a sign of my impending old age, I found myself feeling pretty sleepy by the time the reunion officially end at 9pm. Most of the group moved to a pub next door, I went with them initially figuring that Kelly and I would catch an Uber back to her place, but she was planning to stay out quite late, whilst I also have grandpa's party and work tomorrow! So, I decided to leave, except I had only brought $10 along! Well, $13...

Micki though, gave me twenty-one bucks (I need to shout a meal or something when she gets back - she lives up in Queensland at the moment) and I was able to get a taxi home - I wasn't sure I'd be able to set Uber up on my phone properly without a valid credit card. As it happened, I totally miscounted and told the taxi driver I had $38 to get me back to Mosman from the inner city, so I was quite embarrassed and worried when I got back to my car and only seemed to have $30! The taxi driver was nice about it, but still...however, when I got up and out of the car two dollars fell off my lap so in the end I was only 70 cents short, phew!

But, yes I got in my car, drove back her and arrived a little after 10pm, so good time was made.

Right, I better wrap this up, it's nearly midnight and I do need to get up tomorrow. I'll hopefully have the group photo from the night to show you all tomorrow.

But now, goodnight!

11:03pm: Regarding playing Russian Roulette with the parking lot across from the Library. It's got a one hour limit, but I have at various times - usually the weekend parked there for my shift - which is four hours.

And today I finally got a ticket, fuuuck. It was even more my own fault than usual because I only parked there because I was running late and thus didn't have time to park in the normal place where there's no time limit.

Although, the cost of a parking ticket seems to have gone down since the last time I got one years and years ago, back then it was 80 bucks! This one was $66 but with the 25% discount for paying it right away it went down to $49.50. Still that's like two hours of work. Shit.

Anyway! Now I don't have a cruise to recount any more I'm not sure what else to say! Except did I ever mention that I found my anti-chafing stick thing? Turned out it didn't fall out of my bag in the parking lot near the psychiatrist's office, instead it fell out here in my bedroom! So when I was unpacking two weeks ago, I found it! Hooray!

So, I need to get to bed but I'm caught up in I Shouldn't Be Alive, I really want to know how the guy gets himself out of this, he's trapped under a quad bike and coyotes are coming for him. O.o Luckily, he seems able to scare them away, but he's been out there for like 3 days.

Quad bikes suck.

But not much else to report, I did do some cleaning and ironing today so the place should be ready for Mum's inspection tomorrow afternoon. :OP Meanwhile, I'm still waiting to hear if I'm going to get together with some friends tomorrow evening. I hope so because one of them is going back overseas on Thursday, this will be my last chance to see her for a long time.

And now on that note I must go!

Goodnight all.

10:03pm: Aw man, I think I'm once again going to have to take a break in proceedings regarding the recounting of the cruise (man, I hope I don't forget all the fun things I did! :OP) because this cold is kicking my ass.

The good news, the sore throat seem to abated.

The bad news, we have entered the runny nose part and I forgot to buy tissues when I went to Aldi today - also ice cream, but tissues are way more important and it's way too late to do anything now except go to the 7-11 up the road but I'm not up for that. I may have to use a roll of toilet paper.

I did manage work today, although I forgot to bring my security pass so when I arrived I had no choice put stand in front of the window near the after-hours return chute until one of the other staff members saw me. And...of course it had to be raining (it had been raining since last night actually - it might still be doing so now, but I don't feel like checking). Which reminds me I better find it and put it in my bag now.

Right, done!

I also had a period of time today where I couldn't find my cruise ship pen! I thought maybe I left it at Mrs S's house so I SMS'ed her, but nope so then I was left worrying that it had fallen out of my bag at some point.

Turned out it was on my bed. Man, I gotta keep better track of stuff! I was almost late this morning to work anyway because I couldn't find my car keys. Sigh, major fail.

Also, with the runny nose situation I had to nix the cupcake making - I mean maybe if I was making them just for myself, but for other people?! That's a food-safety violation of the highest order. Shame though, I bought the double thick cream and butter and everything.

Anyway, I better wrap this up and go to bed - I'm a bit worried about work tomorrow afternoon, since when I have a cold I generally feel grossier the more the day gets on...I may have to skip church so I can wake up late although I'm not 100% sure that'll make a difference.

Right, I'm out.

11:29pm: I may have mentioned this before, but after the high fatality rate after a fire aboard an aircraft, psychologists decided to test how people would react to needing to escape from a smoke-filled cabin by offering them five pounds. And it worked o.O! People were willing to shove other people over and climb over seats for five pounds! Now I know this was back in the 80s but that's pretty cheap. I'm not gonna knock people over for that much. Like I said up there in the subject title I'd need about five hundred, they wanted you to actually step on people and stuff.

But, cheapskates or not, these tests did have an effect and the changes made to the interior of planes now makes it easier to get off, even if there is a huge amount of smoke, just remember to leave your luggage behind!

In non-air crash investigation related news, I am terribly disappointed to report that I managed to procrastinate too long on apply for some library jobs and now they've closed! Shiiit. I feel like an dumbass! I was somewhat surprised thought that when I confessed this to Mum she told me not to be too bummed, and that the library in question was probably too far away. Now that is true, but still! Also, it was the library M worked at way back when! Not that I think that would have to me an in, but you never know. :OP

Anyway there's still two other jobs that I can apply to - or three if you include the fact that one has two openings, or possibly four if I get a call back from this Library Management company place I signed up to long, long ago which sent me an email about a position that became available! (I think I saw it on the job sites, it's in the city so I'm not sure how easy it would be to get there...) Although all of the aforementioned would mean giving up work with Mrs S and I think only one of them is permanent. Bloody lack of job security and lack of permanence seriously what is this bullshit?

But! with all this going on I better wrap this up here...although note to self, I need to look in to getting my hair cut tomorrow, it's getting a bit long and I imagine it will be very expensive to do on the ship! I guess I could ask Mum about it. I was thinking it'd be nice if my hair looked good for my friends' birthday party on Saturday, although since I'll have to get my hair cut tomorrow I'm not sure if it'll last that long...

Ah well, I've have to figure out that tomorrow, for now bed!

10:45pm: It was hot today, like 38 degrees C hot and unfortunately the library air-con could not keep up the pace and while it was cooler than that, it was still enough to make me sweat like Rafael Nadal on a an tennis court (OK, I'm probably exaggerating there, but there was definitely forehead wiping).

However, I did discover this morning while talking to Mum on the phone the problem with my air-con...I might have mentioned before that I had to buy a second hose to connect to the first one so it could reach the window, which means that the two hoses can separate. And somehow I managed not to notice that this had happened, so yesterday and last night the damn thing was pumping hot air into the room as fast as cold air was coming out! No wonder it wasn't doing shit! Once I reconnected the hoses the room actually cooled down! So perhaps all is not lost.

In other news, I seem to have lost the anti-chafing body glide stuff, which sucks, firstly because I've ended up chafed and sore and secondly, it cost me 20 bucks! I looked around my room a bit this morning, but I couldn't see it. I checked the car too, but no luck :O( I have a terrible feeling it might have ended up in the parking lot near the psychiatrist's office because I dropped my bag and all the stuff fell out. I thought I picked everything up, but...

I'm half tempted to go back to look for it, but it will have been three days and I'm pretty sure it won't be there anymore. :O( I bought some petroleum jelly from Coles this evening after work since the net indicated it might be useful, I sure hope so. But I'm not sure what to put on the area now that it's all ready chafed, I'm having to do the cowboy walk and it's not fun.

Anyway, after it being so hot I'm quite sleepy! I got 8.5 hours in bed last night, bu I'm sure if I looked more carefully I probably didn't get as much deep sleep as I should have.

I feel I should do at least one Meme...

11:30pm: Right I was going to update this thing with something more substantial then I have done the last few days, but a big ass thunderstorm decided to roll through and shut off the electricity so I'm updating from my mobile like an animal.

Anyway suffice to say things did not go according to plan as I somehow missed that I was on an afternoon shift at the library today. At least until I received a call asking where I was! Good thing I live close by! I was still an hour late though, do'h!

Anyway, I am at M and Grandpa's now so must head off so I can get up on time for our Canasta battle.

Wish me luck! Goodnight all!

11:33pm: Well, there is, but it seems to have disappeared somewhere...I mean I have others, but it's really weird, I got myself some ice cream, picked up the bowl and spoon and took it into my bedroom/living room, let the Ice Magic se and when it was time to eat...the spoon was gone! Disappeared into thin air! Seriously, WTF? I went back into the kitchen to look for it, but nope. I guess I can only hope it hasn't disappeared in my bed somewhere and I end up rolling on it when I'm sleeping.

Speaking of sleep...I made the mistake of not checking my alarms after changing them for last weekend when I didn't have work on. You can see where this is going, right? I woke up at 9:20am and I begin work at 9:30.

Suffice to say it was a huge-ass rush to get to work and I was about ten minutes late and though I did remember who I was working with today I also realised I didn't have a mobile number for them and they weren't likely to answer the actual library phone before opening. The librarian in charge for the day said that it was fine, but I'm still thinking about been told off about my lack of punctuality and how I might get in trouble for it. I hope my lateness doesn't actually get reported to anyone!

Anywho, it was pretty warm today and I'm a bit bummed I didn't get a chance to go swimming, I could have gone over to Mum and Dad's after work I suppose, but I wanted to go home and watch ice skating on SBS - which I finally did! - I could have gone once it finished, but...I didn't due to laziness. So I guess that's my own fault. I'm thinking perhaps I should go over tomorrow before work, or maybe go to church in the morning and then go straight over after work to Mum and Dad's for my usual Sunday sleepover, I think the pool is open until 7pm?

In other, bad news my external hard drive - the one I've been saving pretty much everything to ever since my last computer's hard drive died and I had to replace it - has stopped working! The little connection thing is a loose! So I think the data is still on there, but I have no idea how I can get it off except by taking it to a computer repair place, but who know's how much that'll cost me? I did manage to get some stuff off it before it decided to die on me - even when I held the cord in an odd manner - but not pictures folder. That's got all sorts of stuff on it, shiiit.

Obviously, the concept of backing up has eluded me.

On that note, I have to be off, it's almost midnight and I don't want to stay up too late if I'm gonna do stuff tomorrow morning.

For now, goodnight!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodnight all!

11:59pm: You realise that you've set up the filter insert the wrong way up which explains the loudness of the past month!

Yes, indeed, after getting home from Mrs S's and Warriewood Square, I needed to get some more carrots and milk, I decided to fiddle around with the filter one more time before heading to a pet shop to try and find out if I was doing something wrong.

And yes I was...the motor of the filter belongs inside the filter box, not at the top! I had the thing compete mixed up! I have to wonder if the filter still works after a whole month of it's motor being unsubmerged. It seems to be OK? And now it's whisper quiet!

I'm so embarrassed. :OP

I've also missed out on updating on Halloween! Time got away from me because I decided I better watch the movie I rented from Mona Vale Library the other week Eddie the Eagle, but it was worth it because it was a great movie. I had no idea Eddie was so committed to becoming an athlete, he tried all sorts of things before ending up with the ski jumping.

Damn, I keep getting distracted here, I chalk that up to business as usual and the fact it's late, in fact it's almost 1am! Shit! I better hit the hay!

Ahem apologies for this scattered entry, but hey I fixed the filter!

Goodnight all!

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.

11:37pm: In a very ill advised move I decided not to plug my phone in last night figuring it had enough charge in it.

Spoiler: It did not.

So, at ten to nine I woke up realising to my horror that the alarm hadn't gone off and even worse because my phone was totally dead I couldn't even call Mrs S to let her know I was alive and on my way! Then there was the adding complication of the fact that on Fridays there's this market at the sports fields behind Mrs S's place and for the last few Fridays all the parking spots at Mrs S's are taken! As happened today so was even later, do'h!

I felt super bad when I finally got there because originally Mrs S had planned to take her mother and sister (and husband) on a ride on the ferry to take in the view of Sydney Harbour. But because of my lateness this plan had to be scrapped :O(

However, the were able to go on a picnic to Balmoral Beach, I hope they didn't get overheated, because it was absolutely hot as Hell today! Which meant that it was quite hot inside the Granny Flat even after I put the air con - since I'm still not sure I've set it up quite right. This had a further negative impact in the form of a terrible headache, which decided to strike not half an hour before I had to leave to sign the contract to lock the apartment in.

Even worse there was a change of venue, instead of meeting at the Dee Why office Mum said we needed to go to the solictor's office in Forestville a good twenty to thirty minute drive! And the headache was getting worse! I took some paracetamol, but it took time to kick in and I didn't think I'd be able to drive. Which didn't go over well with Dad who had done the drive all the way from Canberra and wanted to go to the school to set up some stuff.

The headache was bad enough that I went to my parents' house to lie down while Dad dropped Mum off at the solicitors office - but he didn't have to sign anything because apparently Mum had got the instructions mixed up! Mum though still had to pick up some documents so once my headache settled down I went and picked her up and then it was to Dee Why to the realtor office.

And...in the end Dad had to come there to sign something after all! OMG fail! Suffice to say, Dad was quite annoyed, hopefully it didn't ruin his evening.

And now, it's off to bed with me because I've been staying up too late this week as evidenced by what happened this morning!

Goodnight all!

11:20pm: Man, do I feel like a dumbass. After all the internet woes of the last few months, I finally realised...wireless broadband isn't just like regular broadband. It's the type of internet connection I've been looking for! One that doesn't need a phone line, but provides a large data allowance - in fact if I'm willing to fork out $89 a month I can go unlimited! O.o

Well son of a bitch, I can't believe I didn't realise this, it's quite annoying when I see how much money I've spent the past two months because of going over my data limit on my phone - I could have used that money to buy the modem for the wireless broadband!

As it is, I forked over the $200 today, although it did require me to go to Harvey Norman, which I planned never to give my custom too after the owner of the chain made some disparaging remarks regarding people who have trouble finding jobs. But it was either that, paying $10 and waiting some days for a modem to be sent to me or driving for another half-hour or more to get to the Good Guys, the other chain of shops that sells the modem.

So! I've got this lovely internet now, $59 for 40Gb, niiice. I'll see how I go with it, since I probably don't actually need unlimited, it's not like I watch streaming TV.

Ow, I just hurt my nose while rubbing it, good work me. :OP

Anyway! It's nearly 11:30 so I better get myself to bed, I almost got 8 hours of sleep last night and as I result I felt pretty damn good. Which is why I updated tonight - last night I had a terrible headache and also because I got an SMS from my mobile provider that I'd all ready used 50% of my mobile data...in four days, what the fuck?!(It did though get me investigating the other options which is how I found out about the wireless broadband thing, so maybe it was a blessing).

But yes, better be off!

Oh wait, I almost forgot! I got quite a shock today when I checked my phone during a lull at work with Mrs S and discovered an SMS from the agent who looks after the Granny Flat on behalf of the landlord. It said they were coming over today for an inspection! OMG! Not only is the place still a mess, but by law they have to give you 24 hours notice before inpsection. So as soon as I could I called them up to see about re-scheduling. As it happened there was some mistake, they were meant to send me notice a week back, but for some reason it never came. Weird. Still at least I didn't miss something and now the inspection isn't until next Thursday, phew!

Goodnight all!

10:47pm: I mean it, because even you think about it, that thing causes bidding but trouble.

Case in point, my alarm goes off this morning but because I haven't had enough sleep, I turn it off and shut my eyes. I open them again ten minutes later, but make the mistake of shutting my eyes once more to find it's 8:18 and I start at 8:30! Shiiiit!

So it's a mad dash to get to work, with no chance for a proper breakfast and fortunately I end up being only five minutes late.

Although having typed all that I've realised that wasn't the Snooze Button, but er... The long point still stands.

In other news, the hope that a third person would be joining our little group to work with Mrs S has been dashed. She was there yesterday and was meant to come in tomorrow (which meant I'd get a day off), but she called to say she wasn't taking the job after all. I guess it wasn't enough hours, plus if I don't end up getting the library job there probably wouldn't be many hours at all. Although Mrs S and I did discuss splitting the week... Don't think that's on the table now. Hopefully, Mrs S can find someone this is super stressful for her.

Anywho, must be off so this morning's events don't repeat themselves!

Goodnight all!
anonymoose_au: (Whoops)
11:54pm: OMG, did I ever have shit luck this morning! I mean, it was shocking.

Firstly, I'd somehow turned off my phone alarm for Saturday so I din't wake up until 9:40 by someone from the library calling to see where I was!

Then in my rush to leave I forgot to put my keys in my pocket only realising as the door shut! In my one stroke of luck I caught the landlord before they headed out and they had a key to let me back in, thank God!

However, I didn't realise until getting to the library that I'd left my backpack with my wallet back at the house! Which effectively dashed my plans to go ice skating after work!

I mean come on, what the Hell was that?! To say nothing of the fact that I might lose an hour of holiday pay because since I only work on the weekends generally I'm not able to make up the time I lost by arriving at work nearly 45 minutes late. I need all my holiday time for, you know, when I actually want to go on holiday.

I'm also disappointed about the skating, I mean I probably could have gone after briefly stopping by at home to grab my backpack, but by then I was feeling pretty lazy and decided to watch some episodes of MacGyver instead.

I did though get some physical activity done when I walked up to Woolies later in the afternoon to get some food, but I probably undid that all by buying a Magnum from 7-11 on the way back, LOL. But that's how I roll.

In other news, in common refrain I really need to clean my Granny Flat up, I'm totally backsliding here! Lucky for me, Mum isn't coming over tomorrow morning with her friend, although they did come over some time today and looked in the window! Mum said she noticed my bed wasn't made, but I don't think she saw the rest... Still that's not excuse.

Moving on, I'm watching the Paralympics, it's the medley for the visually impaired, and hats off to these guys for being able to swim in a straight line! Whenever I attempt to swim without goggles and keep my eyes closed I zig-zag all over the damn place. In on memorable occurence I held up the swimming carnival at my primary school for like two minutes while I weaved between three lanes because of general crappiness at swimming and lack of goggles. Embarrassment central was only averted by the fact no-one in my House realised it was me.

Anywho, I'm also slacking on the Memes, I gotta pull up my socks with that, but not tonight because I should go to bed sooner rather than later.

I bid you all goodnight!
