11:15pm: Not much to report, although, I did finally get to the alterations place to get my pants taken in...all up this is going to cost like $60, which you know is like 10% of that one pair of pinstriped pants I saw on the net, LOL. (Seriously, they were Chanel and the only pants that came up on the Google search...I always though pinstripes were timeless!)

I also did my extra volunteering at Dee Why Library since I missed out on doing so last week, which is why I was in Dee Why to drop of my pants in the first place. There seems to be a lack of people working at the Home Library Service right now, so there was a heap of selections to do. Unfortunately, I got caught up with one particular client so I only did about three, boo.

Anyway, I also had success with getting a proper USB plug for my tablet at Officeworks, did I mention that I've been having trouble with that? I can't remember LOL, but I was and now I've got one with enough amps.

The tablet is going well since I installed Windows 10 on it, except the display is so small...I tried making it bigger, but then it get blurry...I guess that's just how it goes. Although it does make me wonder if I can actually change between my regular laptop and it without killing my eyeballs.

This is a very uninteresting entry, although I do have one piece of news, my co-worker has asked me over for dinner tomorrow night, it's going to be a Peruvian dish and I'm very intrigued. I hope it won't be too spicy though!

So, I gotta wrap this up because sleep is needed.

Goodnight all!

10:01pm: Yes! Exciting news! I saw my parents in church tonight (I thought they went in the morning) and was able to tell Mum it hadn't come through and she's sent it over, so now for your interest here it be! You can see how it's 'L-shaped' thus making the bed area separate from the living area. Of course, there's no natural light in the bedroom area which is a bit of a drawback, but hey you don't have to walk through my bedroom so that'll be awesome.

In other news, today has been a bit annoying because I think I must have woken up in the middle of a deep sleep block because I've had tired eyes all day along with general sleepyness. What can you do? Apparently there's supposed to be an app that will set your alarm so that it won't wake you up at a bad time, but I'm not sure it would actually work without like a watch or something that actually detects if you're asleep because sometimes I fall asleep quickly and sometimes I don't.

Anyway, moving on let's try and catch up on some more Memes...finally! )

Okedoke, I better wrap this up now since it's 11:30 and my eyes are heavy, plus as always work calls tomorrow!

9:43pm: It's really annoying, especially since I feel like washing them in hot water would fix it, but the optometrist told me that would be a bad idea. And thinking on it he's probably right and that probably explains why the polarising coating on my glasses is sometimes a bit messed up. Sometimes they don't go dark in bright light in a uniform manner.

Maybe I'll have to buy those special glasses cleaning things, although I feel like they're not very environmentally friendly.

Moving on, not much to report, although the rain has set in and is expected to last all the way to Monday - bugger. Especially since it's sheet washing this week and that's huge pain in the ass when it's raining, I don't have anywhere to hang the sheets properly inside my Granny Flat. Maybe I should look into buying a larger drying rack.

Ow, my eyeballs hurt, not sure if that's got to do with my glasses or my lack of zzzzs, I still keep getting only 7.5 hours a night, get with the program me!

I keep getting distracted by this DVD I'm watching so almost an hour has past and this entry is depressingly short. Evidentally I don't have any deep and meaningful things to say. :OP

Oh! Very good news, the Fed-Ex did it! He managed to turn the game around from 2 sets down so now he's going into the semi-finals, whoo! Although, he's up against The Sleeve or rather Raonic or perhaps I should go with a friend of mine's nickname for him "Freddo" because he bares a striking resemblance to the Freddo Frog. Go Fed-Ex! :OD

Right, before I head off here's a meme:

11:17pm: Which sound bizarre, but it's true! On the one hand I want to know what's going to happen next, but on the other the author is taking so bloody long to have anything actually occur that's it's getting quite tedious. Grumble, grumble.

Moving onto the Purple Shirt Project, well it turned out only one button was crooked, so I only needed to fix that one, yay! However, I still haven't done the button holes, there's a way to do it by hand of course, but I'm still not sure if that's a good idea. I also had to redo the hem, so it's no longer rolled, because otherwise the dang thing is just too short, as I discovered when I put it on and lifted my arms. Hopefully it'll be OK now...although I'm worried the fabric might fray and unravel. Fingers crossed. I also need to finish with the sleeves, I'm still hoping to be able to wear it on Saturday.

In other news, it was Library Volunteer Day today and while I was there the Home Library Service Co-ordinator came over to tell me that the home library patrons have been very positive about the book choices over the past few weeks. Whoo! This is very good news, obviously I didn't choose them all, but I would have done some and since I sometimes wonder if I'm any good at picking out good items this puts my mind at ease. I didn't get a chance to ask about the Librarian job, mostly because the person who looks after the staff doesn't seem to be there when I am. Maybe she's at one of the other libraries, or has a day off, or perhaps I just didn't notice her. :OP

And now, I'm gonna wrap this up, despite the shortness of the entry because I'm super sleepy, I think I got some dust in my face at Mrs S's, because my eyeballs are feeling seriously heavy and dry. Or maybe I'm just sleepy and it is pass my bed time after all!

Off I go now, goodnight all!

11:17pm: Not sure where that little song comes from, but it's what my mother used to always say when we got home from holidays.

And so here I am back in my humble abode, alas still with the loan car from the smash repairers, I've got a terrible feeling they haven't made a start on my car yet, it's still not ready. Then again...the insurance guy did say it'd take 10 business day to fix, so perhaps he wasn't wrong. I saw ol' George parked on the side of the road today as I did a few days ago. I didn't get a chance to check him out closely, to see if the new door was on, but I guess it isn't. Oh well, I guess I'll get him back when I get him back.

Moving on, I'm sorry to report I didn't end up going ice skating after all that, because my abdominal area was still being an ass. I slept pretty well at my friend's place, despite being on the couch. Good call bringing my own pillow! On the upside, I did get to Lincraft where I bought fabric for my Pusheen plushy. However, I didn't notice the fabric was folded when I asked for it to be cut so I have soooo much of it. Perhaps I can make multiple Pusheens...

I also went to the pool, but sadly...no activity tracker, I'm pretty sure it's gone...so it's a good thing that the Dee Why Aldi had one left! Which I bought, and found to my relief that despite the price tag saying $70 it actually scanned at $50 phew! Better keep a close eye on this one though.

Speaking of the pool...it turns out that my gym membership hasn't actually ended...the last payment was just taken out today and I'm pretty sure that was in advance. I best check on that before applying to join the gym around the corner.

After that I popped by Mum and Dad's to return the TV box (I managed to return the antenna to the Warringah Mall Aldi, even though I didn't have the receipt) and had lunch with Dad. :O) Although he reminded me that's he's supposed to be looking at my place not the otherway around! ;O)

After that I popped home and then headed off to the library for my performance review, which went very well, with any luck I'll be getting a raise in a few months, yay!

And finally the optometrist appointment! I was somewhat surprised to hear that my prescription hasn't changed much, I hope I didn't make a mistake when he was checking my eyes with the machine - you know the "Is this clearer? Number 1? Or Number 2?"

The point is when he put the new script on those temporary glasses and put it on there really wasn't much of a difference...in that case I can't really splash out on new glasses. Plus they didn't have any green ones there. :O( They did say they could get other frames in, but apparently only from other OPSMs in the city. I wonder if they could get in the same brand of glasses I all ready have, I was looking on their website and they've got some good ones. Only problem...I bet they're super expensive!

Oh well, I guess I'll wait until my Medibank Private card arrives before I make any decisions.

And I was going to do some Memes, but it's quite late now and also the eyedrops the optometrist used to measure my eye pressure have left them all dry and shit, so I shall wrap this up here.

11:00pm: I may be exaggerating slightly, but it's suddenly got to 11pm and I haven't updated my DW or done my Russian! And considering I've been free all day this is quite shameful of me. :OP Actually, I did go out thinking I'd be able to get my eyes checked, but apparently once again, it seems you need to make an appointment in advance these days. Or maybe, I'm just misremembering since I haven't being in quite a while. Anyway, I finally got around to making an appointment, I originally considered going on Sunday, but then I decided to go with Friday.

This means that the next three days are going to be rather busy! Tomorrow I'm going to M and Grandpa's were I'll stay the night, then there's the library and ice skating show and staying at my friend's house on Thursday and on Friday there's the library, optometrist and picking up my car (hopefully).

Actually, I'm sure I saw my car today as I was driving to the shopping centre, I was rather surprised, because to fix it they need to take the side of it off, and the weather's been shitty lately. I couldn't see the dented side from my vantage point driving by, so I couldn't tell if they'd made a start on it or not. I guess not, otherwise they'd have called me. Perhaps they started on the smaller dents first.

Right, so I've just finished the Russian, yay! So I guess we should do some Memes!

11:10pm: From my headache and general malaise, although it took a while - the headache didn't really go away until I took two paracetamol (rather than just one at one point, and a second at another...) after getting up.

It's occurred to me however, that I should get my eyes checked. It's been quite some time and I've been feeling rather squinty lately. The only problem...my private health insurance doesn't cut back in until June... unless I go to Centrelink, wait for who knows how long, to get a letter explaining I'm no longer receiving Newstart and thus can afford such things. I suppose though, nothing's stopping me from going to the optometrist and seeing what they say. Last time I had them checked I didn't actually need a new prescription, if I do I guess I can cross that bridge when I come to it? It's not like I have any work to go to on Monday.

Moving on, despite the amount of sleep I got last night - almost 12 hours, I'm still kind of sleepy today, no doubt I overslept. My brain feels sluggish too, I tried to - finally - take up the curtain that's going in front of my basket storage, but I made some kind of mistake and had to unpick it again! Very annoying.

Ooo! I've just received an email from my parents, I sent them one a few hours ago after which I found out there'd been a big earthquake in Japan. Fortunately, it was in the far south of the country so neither parental unit, brother, sister-in-law or niece have been affected.

Anyway! I need to head to bed because work's on tomorrow so I have to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for that. Plus I need to do my Russian before I go to sleep!

So on that note I shall be off! I'll let you know how the eyeballs go.

10:58pm: If you're wearing a dress...and have chubby thighs like me.

Alas yes, I have suffered an (admittedly) mild case of my heat rash. D: I could feel it developing about an hour into my trip into the city but there wasn't anything I could do about it, short of sticking my dress between my legs like the world's worst pair of pants.

And to add insult to injury, neither of the comic book shops even had the BTTF comic! I might as well have not gone, which certainly would have saved me the trouble. I'm a little worried about what will happen tomorrow, it's supposed to be hot so I want to wear a dress to work at the library, but what if I'm still sore? I tried putting on some shorts, but that doesn't really help.

Buggeeeer.

Oh well, I do have good news though! I got to see the giant book and have my photo with it! And that's the dress I made :OD Is it just me though or am I looking a little plump...damn cheese. :OP

And I got caught up watching the tennis - Fed-Ex played Joko in the semi's at the Aussie Open...and lost! Awww, so sad! Then Henri LeConte the funniest man in tennis was/is playing a Fast4 mixed doubles match and I was busy laughing at that.

However, my eyeballs are sore along with my thighs so I'm gonna cut this entry short and hit the hay. Tomorrow is gonna be busy...

Wish me luck!

10:48pm: Well, they probably didn't because they're surgeons, but I almost did! I'm watching a show called Body Bizzare, which as you can guess is about...bizarre body stuff. Right now they're profiling a poor guy who ended up with a 400 pound tumour in his stomach! Like, what the fuck? The poor guy! He's had most of it removed thankfully, but geeze. The real kicker though was that the guy couldn't get treated for 14 years (that's how it got so big) because he's in the US and didn't have proper medical insurance. Damnit USA, think about your choices!

Moving on from bizarre body stuff, today was my third training session at Mona Vale Library, however I'm feeling popular because I also got a call from the Mall wanting to know if I could do a shift there this afternoon. Sadly I could not, but hey it's great they're calling me. :O) I feel rather popular now.

As for the morning job, I had a bit of a surprise when I arrived to find the air conditioning men all ready there. They weren't supposed to come until 2pm! Since Mrs S in a wheelchair and the air conditioner was being put into the bedroom this was most problematic and we had to be quick with the showering and dressing. It all worked out in the end though, still who just shows up like that? Tradespeople can be have very inconvienent timing.

In other news, my eyeballs are dry and sore, I wonder if it's because of the heating in the library because I certainly haven't been sitting in front of a computer all day. Maybe I should invest in some eye drops or that mist spray stuff. But obviously not right now, now I shall go to bed! Also I haven't been getting quite enough sleep and we all know what happened last week.

So, I wish you all good night!

11:33pm: I probably shouldn't have, but JB Hi-Fi was having a buy two get one free thing going on and they had all the Rugrats DVDs (I think) and I could't help myself. It cost me $115 all up, but that was for 9 DVD boxsets! Sadly, they don't seem to have any special features, but I've always wanted to see all the Rugrats episodes, Australia didn't broadcast them all.

In other news...my eyeballs are quite sore at the moment, beats me why, I haven't been on the laptop all day or anything. Bit of a mystery really.

Perhaps it's because I had such a busy day, since it was ice skating day, so I got down to business right away putting on my laundry, however I managed to screw up the timing so the second load didn't end until after 1pm and then I hung them out before heading off for Macquarie. By this time though, it was a quarter to two! Obviously, I was going to cut it close, but then to top it off I got almost all the red lights!

So in the end I only got half an hour worth of skating today, booo. Still the cashier at the ice skating rink were nice enough to charge me $13 instead of the usual $14.

After I bought all the DVDs I headed off for church, getting there in good time, yay. However, the regular organist is back and things got a bit awkward because the strange lad from the other week was back, he's the Altar Assistant's son after all (although I'm not sure where the kid has been before last week, I've never seen him there before), and the Organist can't abide people chatting in church at the best of times! I think the kid might have ADD or something because he chats a lot and can't keep still. I guess his father thought maybe he could be the back-up PowerPoint person, but with such scatterbrainedness that's rather unlikely.

The mystery continues!

Anyway, due to my eyeballs I shall forego the Memes for today and hope they'll be OK tomorrow!

And now, I'm off! Goodnight all!

10:13pm: My left eyeball has been an ass all day long, it started this morning with eyelashes falling in my eye that made life difficult and uncomfortable.

It stopped doing that in time for me to go to the library - phew! - but then the irritation came back in the form of dry eyes, and everything feels gritty and there's a general feeling of blurriness.

I was hoping to get some reading done tonight, I've almost finished the book on Russia, but the eyeball issue has made that rather difficult and I pretty much just want to head to bed.

It's a big day tomorrow, the interview! I've got my outfit planned out and the two forms that I need to hand over to the interview panel. I probably should consider how I might answer some of the questions they'll ask, I hope I can make a good showing, they were impressed with my resume, so I have to capitalise on that.

Aside from that, there's not much more to report, except that the car is acting odd, when I went out this morning the windows were completely frosted up, but as I discovered not just on the outside...they were inside too. Like I had to wipe the inside of the windshield, and roll down my side window just so I could see where I was going! Quite concerning...the car mats did get wet the other day when the little bro left the windows open, but I'm a bit more worried that the door seals might be going. The driver's side door itself seems to get a bit stuck. I could do without that I can tell you.

Right, better head for bed now, I don't think I got quite enough zzzs last night which might also be causing some issues with my eyes.

On that note, wish me good luck!

11:02pm: They've disappeared, I went to the gym today which meant swimming afterwards and I had hopes that they were in the lost property bin because I couldn't think where else they could be...they're definitely not in the flat, but no luck! So I had to go without them and now they're being jerks. Or that could just be a coincidence, because an eyelash fell into my eyeball. Owww.

Anyway! The Figure Skating Season is over until September, just when I discovered that as an Australian I can probably watch a bunch of stuff online...or rather that with the new modem and internet we have here at the flat I can actually do so. I'm always showing up late to the party.

Anyway, it was very exciting, complete with the first Spanish World Champion ever! He's got a a cool name too - Javier Hernandez, so congrats to him! Although the falling down continued, but maybe that was just the ice, which means if Shanghai's going to try for the 2022 Winter Games they better fix that up.

Today was the Gala actually, which I also watched, and as far as I can tell the bandwidth is still OK. Although I've just realised the billing cycle has started again, so I better be careful with that.

In other news, since I have my mother's car with me, I used it today to go to the gym and also shopping - with a detour to the library because I discovered that when I returned one of the DVDs to the library last week I'd forgotten one of the disc in my computer! Shock! Horror!

Although I had to hold onto the DVD longer than planned because I didn't realise the library doesn't open until 2pm on Sundays, so off I went to that.

I also went shopping at the Mall, to Target, where I got some coathangers and some hair stuff that's supposed to defrizz hair. It said to avoid the roots, but the hair on top of my head is the frizziest so I don't know what to do about that. I've put it in though, so hopefully it'll work.

And I got my standard cheese at Aldi along with a new set of pots...in green! I'll show you a picture of them tomorrow, and some nice green tongs.

Anywho, I'm trying to decided if I should drive the car to work tomorrow...it would mean I could leave later in the morning, but I dunno...

While I ponder on that...here's some of the Memes!

Booking Through Thursday

Carrier

Do you carry a book around with you? Inside the house? Whenever you go out? Always, everywhere, it’s practically glued to your fingers?

(And yes, digital books very much DO count as long as you’re spending time reading on your Kindle or iPad and not just loading them with books that you never actually read.)


Yes sir this is me most definitely! I have to have a book or at least some sort of reading material on my person at all times...well, mostly. So you can be pretty sure that if I'm out and about they'll be a book or Kindle in my bag! :O)

Follow Friday Four Fill-Ins

The statements:

1. Figure skating is one of my new obsessions - in case you couldn't tell! :OP

2. I so enjoy having a swim after working out at the gym.

3. Would you ever go snowboarding? Because I sure wouldn't.

4. Weekends are for kicking back and relaxing!

Without Lamps, There'd Be No Light

1. When you were seventeen, how did you spend most of your Saturdays? Pretty much the same thing I do now...surfing the net, reading, going to church and helping out with the PowerPoint

2. What was your high school locker like? Well it changed every year, so pretty non-descript, I didn't put any pictures up on the wall or any such thing.

3. When did you last have to replace a missing screw? I dunno...I put a screw in the wall put that wasn't to replace it. The screws on one of the outdoor lights need to be replaced along with the bulb, I can't even get the latern cover off to change said bulb.

4. What was the last thing you drank out of a Thermos? Uh...I don't believe I've ever drunk out of a Thermos, I prefer cold drinks as a rule, even in winter.

anonymoose_au: (Whoops)
9:33pm: Damn, they've decided to be an ass to me again with much discomfort and odd sensations...I feel like an eyelash might be in there, but there seems to be nothing. Very irritating...I wonder if there's something in the air because my nose was certainly itchy today and I never did get that horseradish and garlic stuff that my mother swears by. Whoops.

Anyway, as I mentioned yesterday, I had to get up at 7am today to go for my training at my prospective employer's house. Suffice to say I mostly watched how things were done although I did to a few things. Not sure how I feel about it to be honest. On the one hand, the lady is very nice and quite funny, so there's no issues on that front, but yeah...it's one thing to have a buddy for this sort of thing, it's quite another to do it by yourself! I'm worried I might fuck up or do something not right with the personal care and things will become quite a mess, figuratively and literally! But I'm going back for more training tomorrow and on the weekend too so...

I did get an email back from the guy my aunt referred me to, but no meeting has been set up yet and nothing forthcoming from the library (incidentally the council HR department has apparently been downsized so it could take even longer than usual to get a reply!), I think I could turn down this job by Monday, but after that I'm pretty much committed.

Furthermore...I don't even know how one would leave a job like this...I suppose it's the same as any job? Give your two weeks notice, although then I'd probably be expected to train my replacement...ugh, I'm not good at issuing instructions. Although I'm getting ahead of myself here, I should stop catastrophising things.

Oh and I forgot to mention the most interesting thing, the current care worker is called Monica too! She's the first one I've ever met personally in my life I kid you not! There was a Monica at my high school but she was in Year 7 when I was in Year 12 so I never even saw her. So yeah, this quite amusing to me. She's also really nice, so hey, good people.

In other news, I'm not sure about the gym situation, by which I mean taking my gym gear with me so I can go there after work. However, one probably shouldn't bring too much crap to someone's house, my stuff was a bit in the way today actually, and that was rather awkward. I suppose I'll just have to come back here after it and collect it. I guess it wouldn't be such a problem, I do have that bus ticket after all.

Anyway, better wrap this up and head to bed, a lack of sleep could also be behind my eyeballs acting up.

Wish me luck tomorrow! Goodnight all!

11:05pm: I really hate it when they randomly decide to freak out on me, I think I must have accidentally got something in them because they feel really weird like there's grit in them or something. Ow.

In other news, I need to decide if I'm going to the Book Fair in Chatswood tomorrow, I actually thought it ended today, but apparently I can't read. Thing is, I don't actually have that much money to play around with, also I probably shouldn't be buying more books, I can fit them here in the flat, but what will happen when I go back to the apartment?

And...I just remembered I was meant to do something for my mother, whoops. Better get onto that!

In sporting news, Serena Williams beat Maria Sharapova aka the screamer at the Australian Open Final tonight, praise the Lord! Seriously, I have real trouble believing that shrieking isn't deliberate, I can never watch any match that she's in.

Also! Australia won the Football (Soccer) Asian Cup! Sweeet, I guess I am somewhat of a typical Aussie as I do enjoy hearing about Australian teams winning, even in sports I don't give a shit about. :OP

Interruptions

1. How regularly do you get interrupted at work, and how well do you handle it? I don't work, sob, thanks for rubbing it in. :OP

2. What was the occasion the last time a TV program you were watching was interrupted by breaking news? Um...hmm...I can't really think of one. There might have been something about those fires that broke out in October because they were really unexpected.

3. Whose flow did you most recently interrupt, and what was so important? Well, I did interrupt the workshop leader quite a bit this week, I didn't mean to, but it happens...

4. How easily does your train of thought get interrupted? Eas- hmm, what's that? I can't believe it now my nose is itchy - ily.

5. What’s something in your life that could use some interrupting? My unemployment! Seriously, this is bullshit.

Saturday 9

:Papa Loved Mama (1992):

1) This song is about a trucking "accident" that was covered extensively in the local paper. What's the big news story in your neighborhood? Ummm...I'm not sure, in the broader Sydney context there's the inquest to the terrorist attack in December, sad stuff.

2) The action centers around a motel. When is the last time you stayed in a hotel or motel? In mid-December when my parents and I went to Bathurst for my graduation.

3) In the song, Papa wants to surprise Mama with a bottle of wine. Do you prefer white or red? Neither, don't like wine.

4) This week's featured artist, Garth Brooks, has said that the late Chris LeDoux -- singer, sculptor and rodeo champion -- is his hero. If you had to single out someone this morning as your hero, who would it be? Well, I do admire Plushy a whole lot. A perfect example of never giving up!

5) Before he was able to support himself as a singer, Brooks was a bouncer at a bar. Have you ever had an encounter with a bouncer (either that he threw you out or came to your aid)? Nope, don't really go to bars, not my scene.

6) According to the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America), Garth surpassed The Beatles as the top selling artist of the last 25 years. Whose music do you listen to more -- Garth Brooks or the The Beatles? For serious? I've never even heard of Garth Brooks! The Beatles for sure!

7) While 1992 was a banner year for Garth Brooks, it was a bad one for another country legend, Willie Nelson. Willie ended up paying the IRS more than $9,000,000. When you file your taxes, will you qualify for a refund? Or will you owe money? Oh shit, I owe money...which I haven't paid...and I really should have, but I kind of can't afford it. This is very awkward...I'll have to do something about that before I end up getting fined and having to pay even more!

8) When this song was popular in 1992, Sarah Ferguson, then the Duchess of York, was in all the papers and magazines for her controversial conduct -- including being photographed sunbathing topless with a man not her husband. Today no one seems to care much about what Sarah Ferguson does. Can you think of someone else whose fame was fleeting? Oh I don't know, she was in the news just recently defending her ex. To answer the question um...I wanted to say the Karadasian's but they're still around. Justin Beiber same story...Bummer.

9) This is Super Bowl weekend. Where will you be watching The Big Game? Not in the US and even if I was, I wouldn't be watching, football isn't my bag.

Right, better wrap this up, it's getting quite late, plus I should rest my eyes all things considered.

Goodnight all!

11:23pm: The shelving unit and pull out table for the TV to stand on is complete! And I just remembered I was supposed to take photos to show the progress of it...not that I could have because the builder came while I was out and about, he was finishing up as I got home. But let it be said it looks mighty nice, having a shelf for the TV really adds class to the place. :OP Plus I've got lots of shelving now, although I haven't put anything on them because my knee was hurting me today, not sure what that was all about.

Anyway! This morning things went well with MUm and Dad and the cars, I was on time and they were late, so go me! Plus I took my sandals to the bootmaker in Dee Why near the library and the man said he can fix them for sixty bucks. Apparently, Kumfs shoes have this sole/heel breakdown problem a lot and he's able to get special comfortable soles from Rockport to replace them. Niiice indeed.

As for the library, I completed going through the audio section and fixing up broken cases and cleaning discs and whatnot, I feel very proud indeed! I'm going back tomorrow, although I suppose I should be careful not to do too much for free, because if I do, why would they hire me! Although...one would have to hope people would be nice.

The only thing I didn't manage to do was any work on the assignments due when TAFE starts again, I really better get onto those because I'm sure I won't really want to do them next week. Bah, don't let me forget!

And that's pretty much all I have to say for today, plus my eyeballs feel weird and a bit dry so I should get myself to bed. I need to catch up on the zzzs!

Goodnight all!

10:37pm: It's called Behind Mansion Walls and in the brief time I've watched it I've seen the same episode of it three times, but on all those occasions they've been narrated by a different person! I mean I've heard of changing narrators over the lifetime of a show, but they don't usually go back and re-narrate the show do they? Seems a bit expensive and you can only think the previous narrators don't want their name attached to the show or something. LOL weird. It's not as if it's the worst show ever made, so colour me confused.

Also rather unrelated, the (third) narrator of the Mansion show and the show I'm watching now has two people wearing the most hideous tie/shirt combinations. My father would be appalled.

In non-satorial news, not much to report, I was particularly lazy today only leaving the flat to reset the internet in Mum's friends house, to empty the recycling and later in the evening go down to the street to take a bag from my mother - since she and Dad have almost moved everything out of the old house and over to the Retirement Home. I don't think this was a good idea, because my eyes have gone weird, all dry and tired and it's not like I didn't sleep in today, which I didn't mean to do but my phone decided to be a dick and not charge despite been plugged in. I think it must be the charger I'm using! I thought perhaps the battery might be the problem too so I put in second one I have, but it appears to be even worse, I mean the phone stayed charged as long as I didn't use it, which is pretty damn useless. So the other battery has gone back in. I'm wondering if I'll have to look into getting a new phone, but I can't actually afford to do that, plus the little bro bought me that lovely green cover. I guess if it gets really bad though I could ask Dad for the phone he had before his school gave him an iPhone.

Anything else to report? Not really, although I forgot to mention that yesterday on my way home from the library I ended up sitting next to a Missionary from the Church of Jesus Christ and the Latter Day Saints. Turns out there, they're more polite about things than the Mormons or whoever it was who showed up at parents' house years and years ago and when I said I was Catholic looked at me as if I had an extra head. Rude!

And finally I have to head to the doctor's next Friday about what vaccinations I need to work in Aged Care, man I sure hope I don't need to get a lot. Fingers crossed.

Now, Meme time! )

Okedoke, that's pretty much all have to say for today, tomorrow will be interesting as I'll be going over to the parental home for the last time, sniff. And of course, church and the gym.

Also I have to go to bed soon, since I do feel tired.

I bid you all goodnight!

11:39pm: Right, so today was the interview and wouldn't you know it? I was five minutes late instead of five minutes early for it! I don't get it, I totally planned my route, but I must have missed the last bus I needed to catch by mere minutes. :O( In the end I dropped $13 to take a taxi, hmpf! And to further add insult to injury, my lower abdomen was hurting like Hell all day, and I don't even have any Buscopan anymore. Most unpleasant...it better go away for tomorrow, I have to go to the library for volunteering! And apply for the library jobs while I'm at it.

Oh also...I don't think I did very well at the interview, shit. I should probably get in contact with the Career Counsellor person and see if she can fit me in for some interview role play, although now I'm at TAFE I won't be able to do morning appointments.

So yeah, I'll hear about whether I got the job or not next Friday - as one of my online friends said to me - "We're our own worst critics" so maybe I didn't go as badly as I thought...

Oh and also went to the optometrist despite the stomach pain, which settled a bit and did the tests, but while there was a change in my left eye it's really, really teeny and with my lack of funds at present it really isn't worth getting new glasses. I guess I'll have to see about moving closer to the slides at TAFE, although everyone in class has kind of got used to where they're sitting, so...

Anywho, I better get to bed, keep my sleeping hours up, but before I go, the Meme!

Booking Through Thursday

Summertime

Do your reading habits change in the summer? Well, it isn't summer, but not really now a days because I either work all year round or...don't work much at all :OP Back when I was at school I'd read more during the summer holidays, but yeah, those are all in the past. Plus, my reading habits have also changed because of smartphones, now I can go online when I'm on the bus rather than having to open a book. Tsk tsk.

And on a final note, the ankle seems to be feeling better, I wore the compression bandage all day today so with any luck I'll be able to go to the gym on Saturday.

Now, I bid you all goodnight!

10:09pm: Right, I've just realised something about my headaches...I think my glasses prescription is no longer up to task. I just noticed that today when I was at TAFE, I sit in the back of the classroom and we had lots of slides to look at today. Plus when I close one eye and then the other I can't see very well, I even downloaded an app that indicated I might have some issues - although I guess an app would tell you that. :OP

So anyway, I'm wondering if I should head out some hours before my interview in the city to go to my optimistrist since I'll probably be able to get a walk-in appointment. The only issue? Now that's I'm poor and have had to put my Private Health Insurance on hold I don't think I can afford to get the lenses replaced in my glasses. And even if I can I won't be able to get the transition lenses because they're like $400 by themselves. I wonder then if I should just go to the Specsavers at the Mall? However, I would rather go to an optimistrist who knows me and all that.

Wait, I've just realised I'd have to get a new pair of glasses because I only have this one pair, so if I gave them to optimistrist to send them away what would I wear? I'd be really blind then! Shiiit, I can't afford new glasses from that place, they have expensive frames there!

So, yes, bit of an issue there.

Also, I had to return the ankle compression sock thing today because last night I woke up and it was digging into my flesh and was as painful as Hell! Ow! I did however buy a medium sized one from a different pharmacy, which feels much better, although it was $3 more expensive, boo. However, there was no suitable cheap Homeyped shoes unfortunately, so I'll have to wear my old ones with my grey suit tomorrow. And make sure my shirt is properly ironed! I've got my birth certificate ready to take too, must make sure to keep it safe! Unfortunately, I kind of forgot about my Career's Counsellor, aw crap, I was supposed to do some interview roleplaying before my next interview. It's a bit late now though...

And finally, I must call my pyschiatrist's office, because he hasn't got back to me yet and I really should make an appointment before too long.

Right! On that note, I guess I'll be off, I should keep my bed time hour reasonable and not spend so much time looking at computer screens until I get my prescription up to date!

And that's all I have to say about that, for now, goodnight!

8:36pm: Well, dang, I think I might have a cold or something...either that or I got dust up my nose at some point because my nose was running like a sieve this morning and also there was a lot of sneezing. I took a Sudafed, which finally kicked in after a couple of hours, but it seems to have had a nasty side effect, it hasn't just dried out my nasal passages, but my eyeballs as well! Ouch, they're so sore... Either that or the virus has just left me super tired, which I guess is a possibility too.

Hmpf! I seem to recall getting a cold just after last Easter as well, what's up with that shit? Is there something in Easter chocolate? I sure hope not because I've been eating it today! Still on the plus side, since it was a public holiday, I didn't have to go to work, or more probably call in sick.

So yeah, despite my malaise, Mum and Dad had me help them with cleaning up the backyard (hmpf, not pity for my poor self) and I also had to clean up my bedroom because Dad came up this morning to look for something and was most horrified. Honestly, though, it wasn't that bad, Dad's just a neat freak. :OP Although I guess it does look better.

Anyway...this isn't much of an entry I'm afraid, I'm gonna turn in pretty soon, maybe this will turn out to be a 24 hour thing, I'm supposed to go to get my laser treatment tomorrow, I'll have to see how I feel I guess.

Huh, Law & Order: SVU and Scottie from Cold Case has popped up, LOL! Not playing Scottie I imagine, but it's sort of funny. It could be him, though, since Cold Case ended years ago...would explain what happened to him, LOL.

So, I'm off now, wish me good health and/or a quick recovery!

Goodnight all!

10:58pm: Son of a bitch, don't ever get caught up in Tumblr tags! You won't be able to get off them! That's what I've been doing practically all day, and I'm sure my eyeballs are going to rebel any minute now.

I did go to the gym though! I'm pleased about that :OD oh and when I got back I found that skin cleanser I was talking about yesterday, turns out I had put it and my other bathroom essentials elsewhere. And that elsewhere was right in front of my face in a Simpsons reusable bag that's been sitting on top of my laundry basket for the last three weeks. Man, I'm so blind.

In other news...there was a story on the TV tonight about a clutter-clearing person and his efforts to help out someone with a borderline hoarding issue. I happened to be watching it all ready, but Mum called me down to watch it with her. :OP I'd like to point out, though, that this person had 70 pairs of shoes, more clothes than you could imagine and also lived a one bedroom apartment. I live in a teeny tiny apartment! My stuff isn't junk...there's just...too much of it, LOL.

There's a rather odd noise right now...like something squeaking...I've heard it before, but I wasn't able to figure out where it came from. Weird.

Anyway! Let's bring on those Memes:

Follow Friday Four Fill-Ins

The statements:

1. Having a cool glass of worker of water helps me refocused and concentrate!

2.I really have to get onto the job hunting!

3. The first thing I do in the AM is take a drink of water, sadly it's not cool...

4. Tomorrow morning I am going to clean up this room of mine because I'm sure Mum's going to come up and look at it.

Friday5

Usage

1. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of a power tool? I don't believe I've ever used a power tool.

2. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of a postage stamp? Sending a Get Well card to Plushy, which I don't think he got...I wonder if it'll come back, I made that by hand damnit.

3. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of a threatening word or gesture? Hearing about how the Government is treating aslyum seekers, particularly unaccompanied children.

4. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of some transparent tape? Um...hmm...I had to use it at work to tape close a magazine that came in a bundle.

5. What was the occasion that called for your most recent use of Wikipedia? I usually go through Google because when I look up something the Wikipedia article often pops up first. In this case it was some Russian ballerina.

And that squeaky noise is disappearing, then coming back...it's bloody annoying and I wish I could figure out where it's coming from!

I suppose I could go looking...and in that case I'd have to get up...

On that note I shall say goodnight!
