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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wish me luck with my story and goodnight all!

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!

11:17pm: Seriously, WTF? So rude! I can only think that I must have woken up at a bad point in my sleep cycle. Grumble, grumble.

Also, while my headache was gone by this morning (did I update yesterday? Apparently not, well suffice to say I had a terrible headache in the evening, paracetamol didn't do shit for it, bah, good thing I found some ibpruofen!) my guts decided to be unco-operative so I felt pretty eww for a lot of the day.

However! I didn't let it get me down and I won Canasta against M tonight! Whoo-hoo! Although it was an afternoon/evening game and M's never at her best at that time. We might play another hand tomorrow, we'll have to see.

Also, another great benefit in visiting M and Grandpa is getting a delicious lunch/dinner - it was lamb cutlets this time around, super delicious! With cauliflower and mashed potatoes. Belissimo!

Oh and there was ice cream with banana, rockmelon and chocolate sauce for dessert. Good times!

Right, so I was hoping this entry would make more sense, but like I said I'm inexplicibly tired as Hell so I'm gonna wrap this up here and hit the hay.

Goodnight all!

11:18pm: Yeeeessss! After work today I went over to M and Grandpa's place so M and I could play Canasta together and as you can probably guess from my subject title, I won! Yaaaaays! I have to admit I was greatly assisted by the first hand. I shuffled the cards, but I still ended up with all the wild cards - necessary for making Canastas, so I was like way ahead. But! M is known for her fight backs and she got awfully close to beating me. :O) Gotta keep on your toes.

Moving on, not a lot to report, I didn't update yesterday because I've fallen into this one day on, one day off thing, but I'm pleased to say despite feeling rather lazy I got off my butt and went to the gym, good for me! Oh! And it went well with the pyschiatrist who gave me some more tips and I've also arranged to to see him in three months rather then the six we've been doing. :O) With any luck I'll be able to work on my anxiety and cut down on the panic attacks. It would appear that I naturally breath a little faster than is normal, which makes it rather easy for me to start hyperventilating, which is the enemy of the panicky person. So I really should work on that...I need to listen to my mindful breathing app before I go to sleep. Although I neglected to do that yesterday because I got distracted by a fanfic - although not mine :OP I'm still working on it though!

I ended up going to be late though, which isn't doing my eyelid twitch any good, it's still going a bit...and I can't sleep in on Sundays since I go to church in the morning. So yes, better not stay up too late, even though I didn't get to watch my house shows this evening because I needed to watch the Bridget Jones' Baby DVD I got from the library, I was going to renew it because it's due tomorrow, but someone's got a hold on it, so...But I managed to do that so everything's coming up Moose! :OP

Right, on that note, I better be off (gawd, I've fallen way behind on the memes again, gotta do something about that). My one regret is I didn't get a chance to go ice skating...and also that I need to get my blades sharpened, man, it's such a long drive out there.

Guess I'll have to wait for next week.

Oh! And I almost forgot, whilst I didn't stay over at the M and Grandpa's, I did have dinner there, Grandpa had made spaghetti mince so we had pasta with a salad. Delicious!

For now, I bid you all goodnight!

11:17pm: Indeed, they had a tendency to slip today when I went skating, which is never good, after all I don't want to fall on my ass!

This time I got there just as the session was starting and aaaah skating on new Zamboni-ed ice is the best! So smooooth!

Speaking of skating, Plushy decided to be the legend he is and resurrect his most famous exhibition program - a strip-tease (panic not, he wears a muscle suit!) to Tom Jones's Sex Bomb. It's as hilarious as it sounds. I'm a bit bummed I didn't try harder to go and see these shows as I'm pretty sure this exhibition piece won't happen again. On the other hand I'd probably die from the thrill/second-hand embarrassment :OP

Still the lesson is...Plushy is more awesome than you. :OP

What else to report? Well, I got my laundry done, a day late and the pizza base so I could make my pizza also a day late.

I'm also thinking I need to get more zzzs - this is a common refrain for me, but I was quite sleepy as I drove home from the ice rink today and you know...driving when sleepy is a baaaad idea.

Which is why I have to wrap this up because I need to get to bed soon and also because my brain is not functioning right now, LOL. I wish I had a clearer head though I want to write more on my fan fic! It's going pretty well, although I'm not entirely sure I've picked the right tense to write it - did I mention this before? I think I started with the present and I keep falling back to the past. Obviously I'm gonna have to check this over carefully if I finish it and put it up. :O)

Anyway, I better be off now, hopefully I'll have a more interesting entry tomorrow.

anonymoose_au: (Whoops)
10:45pm: Well that sucks...I was all set to start my application for the library technician job, but as I read over the position description I realised...well shit...I don't actually have the skillset! This is a damn shame and also a bit embarrassing since I mentioned I was going to apply and now, well I look kind of dumb.

I had no idea library technicians were supposed to know about creating programs for the community and knowing about reading advisories and all that jazz. But I suppose that makes sense, the Librarian looks over everything, the library assistant follows instructions and the library technician is the person in the middle. To be honest I'm not the sort of person who wants to work on complicated projects and shit, I'm too lazy for that kind of effort. I probably shouldn't say that though...

Moving on, I did get the other stuff I wanted to do today, like go to the gym and go shopping - I was out of cheese! While doing that I decided I'd try my hand at making something new for dinner, beef stroganoff. I've had it before of course, but not in some time! I got the idea from Mrs S who had it for dinner last night (she has it quite often actually) so I got the sauce and fetticine and cooked it up tonight. It was pretty good! I should add to my repitore!

What else to report? Well, I haven't finished cleaning which is the story of my life because I'm a lazy ass :OP but seriously, I need to pick up my game because I'm pretty sure Mum will be visitng the place tomorrow and also it's pretty uncool to leave clothes and stuff on the floor. Although I've said it before and I'll say it again, I don't know how that stuff ends up on the floor, I don't remember putting it there.

Oh! And I don't have the photos, but yesterday when I went to the mall to collect Mrs S's new portable oven I went to the Pop Culture shop there...and they had Pusheen stuff! I couldn't resist! I bought a pencil case and the small regular Pusheen plush, they're both sooo cute! Although I probably shouldn't be buying stuff, but sometimes you gotta treat yo'self as they say.

Anyway, I better wrap this up, I have to get to bed soon (although, honestly I should be in bed now, I'm not gonna get my 8 hours!) and trim my fingernails again...why the Hell do they keep growing so fast, meanwhile my hair is taking forever to grow out. Annoying.

Right, off I go! Goodnight all!

11:40pm: Yes indeed! And I was planning to upload some of the photos I took, but I got caught up watching Roger Federer kick the butt of Tomas Berdych in the Aussie Open and now my laptop's touchpad has decided to act weird on me, so even though I've downloaded the photos I can't resize them, which really needs to be done because they're super huge.

Anyway! Good news! Despite the fact it was kind of rainy today Mum, Dad and I were still able to go to Cockington Green, and although Mum decided not to go in with us Dad and I had a great time in there! I haven't been there since I was like 3 or 4 years old and since that time they've added a whole new section of International minature models of things like Manchu Pichu and Petra. I got quite a few photos as did Dad although he needs to send those to me.

After Cockington Green we continued onwards to Aunt Chris and Uncle Lawrie's place where they were taking care of a number of their grandkids (and step-grandkids), but they have a big house so it wasn't too crowded or anything. We had lunch which was a BBQ, which was very delicious although I was sad to see that the salad contained no iceberg lettuce! It seems when Auntie Chris bought some pre-cut lettuce at the supermarket it didn't include it - uncool lettuce people, uncool.

Then it was on the road to Sydney once more, and it looked like the rain was going to follow us, but fortunately it let up and once we got into Sydney the traffic wasn't too awful except for a brief bit on the M5 - which I think is known as the shittiest road in the city.

Anyway, I best wrap this up since like I said my mouse is being an ass.

Hopefully I'll have more details for you tomorrow.

11:15pm: I swear the change themselves, it's very annoying.

Although I've just had a terrible thought, maybe someone has changed it! I don't think so...but I have had a lot of odd emails bounce back...

Oh crap...I've just checked the recent activity on my Yahoo account and there's some decidedly weird shit there...like my account's been accessed from India and China! Unless that's just when I've used Hola! to change my location...but I don't think so.

But I've all ready changed my password so many times I have no idea what I could use that I'd even remember! Except I also remember enabling two-step authentication so that I'd get an SMS on my phone if there was any shenanigans. But then perhaps I only did that after these weird sign ins, they're from 7 and 8 months ago.

Well, I've changed the password now so hopefully weird shit won't go down again.

Right, moving on, not a lot to report...except once again it's a lot later than I expected! And I haven't done my Russian yet, which I really need to do, although my phone is currently plugged in with a reaally short cable so I'm not sure how that's going to work. I might have to lie on the floor, LOL.

I'm at the parental units' place now for my usual Sunday night stay-over, we had Chinese for dinner, complete with honey chicken, which was super yummy indeed!

Also it means I can watch the house shows with Mum, and we can raise an eyebrow whenever they mention "granite" they're all about granite bench tops and double sinks, LOL.

But like I said time is getting on so I better wrap this up. Here's hoping I won't have any more password woes. Fingers crossed!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10:25pm: Not one I've been undertaking, no I'm talking about this episode of MacGyver where his company's idea of stress relief is going on a day long hike complete with crossing a disturbingly flimsy looking bridge. Worst idea ever, although what MacGyver's doing up there when he's supposedly afraid of heights, however the fact he climbs mountains and such seems to refute that. But then again that's MacGyver for you, LOL.

So, today I went over to M and Grandpa's after work for Canasta, unfortunately for me I hadn't realised that M was expecting me to call and confirm that I was coming. Because I hadn't she'd gone swimming in the morning and was heading off to have her rest when I arrived. Whoops!

Then there was lunch, which was very delicious, but took quite a while because that's M and Grandpa's main meal of the day, so by the time M and I got around to starting the game (that was another thing I managed to forget to bring the score of the previous game we hadn't finished) it was 3pm! Suffice to say we didn't finish this game either, so now there's two unfinished games to complete and I'm losing in both of them! Hopefully, I can make an amazing comeback in at least one.

Also, my baggy pants situation is getting quite silly now, so I decided to pop by the Narrabeen Vinnies to see if I could find a second hand pair that would fit better. I thought I'd managed to score a good deal, but sadly they've proved to be too small - they were sort of stretchy so I thought I'd get by. But no dice...damn that's twelve bucks I won't get back....Grandpa did suggest seeing if I could get an exchange of sorts, apparently they let him do it once, but he is an older gentleman so the Vinnies people probably figured he was legit.

In other news, Nedshenko is still with us...fingers crossed! Hopefully, this will continue.

Anyway, I better move quick with some Memes before I head off )

10:48pm: Has begun in earnest, since as usual I had to scrap the first one I was working on because I accidentally glued the face on wrong and when I tried to get if off it unsurprisingly left marks. Plus it was way easier to put the face and stripes on with the two body pieces not sewed entirely together yet.

I am having a bit of a time getting her tail right though, because of its stripeyness rather than making it just two pieces that are sewn together, there needs to be several alternating in light and dark grey material. The problem is making those pieces line up when I'm done! Perhaps though I'm not making the pieces big enough? Because once I sew them together it's really quite fiddly and trying to turn it right side out is quite hard on the fingers.

Anyway! Here's some pics of my progress! Although I have actually done a bit more, such as add her little front paws. I'm very much looking forward to how she'll look when I stuff her. :OP

Moving on, I didn't realise until I was heading to bed and got a cc of an email that Scripture class wasn't on today, instead there was a mass for the kids, which I didn't have to go to. But Mum still came by for her weekly visit bearing a sausage roll to be split between us and a cupcake each! Good thing I've rejoined a gym! :OP Although the main room still needed fixing it up so I didn't get rated on how I'm keeping my bedroom, LOL. I also need to mop my floor again, damn annoying floors. And get some Shower Sparkle.

However...because I didn't have any extra library shifts last week, but still spent quite a bit of money...I actually don't have enough money in my usual account to cover rent! I have to dip into my savings, booo! Oh well, I have an extra shift on Friday so I should be back in the black.

In other news, this show called Million Dollar Rooms is quite insane, makes Plushy's houses look relatively underdone, LOL. Seriously, though, who puts a TV in the walk-in wardrobe, sounds like a great way to get distracted and end up being super late LOL. Also...don't put carpet in a craft room rich people, that'll be a huge pain in the ass to clean.

Anyway! I've done my Russian, so before I wrap up this entry I'll do a meme!

11:16pm: Which means I can't think of a good title here...I was going to make it about the fact the Aldi at Mona Vale seems to have stopped selling double length toilet paper, but I thought that'd be a bit embarrassing.

Seriously, though, where's the double length toilet paper go? That was super handy! Four rolls instead of 8, which is great in a flat such as mine where there's not a heap of space. I guess I should have gone to another Aldi, but figured they would have restocked by now. I guess I'll have to keep an eye out to see if this is a store-wide thing. I hope not!

Ha ha you know it's a slow news day for Moose when I spend a paragraph going on about toilet paper.

I had planned to do more exciting things today, such as go ice skating, but I need to get my skates sharpened which means going to the skating shop first and if I did that I'd end up finishing my skating session just as peak hour starts. Having driven in that situation before I can safely say, fuck that. I hope to go tomorrow though, although that will probably mean driving home in the dark a bit. Hopefully, not too much!

I did get to the doctor's though, however, to my great disappointment I wasn't bulk billed and thus am out of pocket $40 and I forgot about asking for a flu shot! Damn, fail! I'm not a rich person, that $40 covers my food for a week!

Unfortunately, the weird look of my toenail is a fugal infection...shit, so now I have to use this anti-fugal that could apparently take 2 months to work! Ugh. On the fortunate side, it's not related to the wart treatment I've been using, so I can go back to using it. That'll take months too...I could have it frozen off, but that would probably take more than one session and hurt. Boo.

Oh and I got to the breakfast this morning, sadly though there were no crossiants available and everything else was bloody expensive so I went with a muffin, which was very big and I didn't in fact finish. I wrapped it up in a napkin and bought it home, so I can have it tomorrow.

Right, I was thinking of doing a meme, but like I said, I'm a tired Moose so I better be off to catch up on my zzzs!

11:32pm: That's like the first time I've had a friend come to my humble abode since...well many years ago, when someone from university (who I've unfortunately lost touch with) came to my studio apartment in Newtown and got me into Merlin, LOL.

But tonight my friend, Ben, came around, I made pizza and a salad! And served chocolate biscuits and Clinkers. Good times, good times! Except when I almost fell down the stairs because it was dark outside and I couldn't see! I'd gone out because I thought Ben had arrived and was going to get him and then wouldn't you know he called my phone, which was back inside so...But I was OK!

So yeah! It was pretty cool to have a friend over and Ben was impressed I actually had the place relatively clean, LOL, or at least the kitchen/living area, the bedroom's still a bit messy, LOL. And he enjoyed the pizza, in fact I've got none left! Luckily I have ham for tomorrow's sandwich. I got it from the actual butcher at the local shops, although it looked different from the usual ham I get, not sure why. Tasted OK though!

Now, unfortunately this will be another short entry because I need to get up early tomorrow, the car needs to be dropped in for its service at 8:30am. After that I'm not sure what to do with myself...There's a bus back up to the local shops so I guess I'll just take that? Although there's a All-Staff Council Meeting at noon in Warriewood and after not going to the last one, I should go to this one. So do I really want to go all the way back up the hill just to come back later? Providing the bus is going...it's a bit sporadic. I suppose I could just hang out until noon...or in general until the car is ready.

Ah well, we shall find out tomorrow!

Now though, I must be off!

11:05pm: My skates that is, yes! I went ice skating after work today, and the ice didn't feel as hard under my blades as they did last week, but it felt kind of...slidey when I tried to go around the corner. So this means...I have to go and get them sharpened because I don't quite trust the service they provide at the ice rink, but it did just occur to me that they don't do it onsite, for all I know they send the skates off to the very shop I go to. In which case...I should check into that.

What else to report? Well, it seems something happened with a hose today because when I got home from ice skating my clothes hanging on the line were all damp! Yet most of them were nearly dry when I left this morning - I probably should have brought them in then, but I turned off my alarm and nodded off for twenty minutes so I was in a bit of a hurry, I even forgot to make lunch! Luckily, I was able to buy a sausage roll which I microwaved later on. Yum, sausage roll.

It was also quieter than previous Saturdays at the library so I got through the rest of the AV Problem shelf, yay! Although most people didn't answer the phone so I had to leave a message, and some of them had been on the shelf so long they were from last year! I'm not sure we'll get any response there. And rather annoyingly one thing on the shelf all ready had its missing DVD reunited with the case. Why was it still there? Very uncool.

Anyway,moving on from that, Memes! )

Right! Better be off, because as I said I fell back to sleep this morning so I don't want that to happen tomorrow!

So, goodnight!

11:16pm: Of the much anticipated M vs Moose Canasta Game! Alas M was not at her best today, which could partly explain my stunning victory. Still... Beggars can't be choosers. :OP

Grandpa made a delicious moussaka for dinner, yum cheesey! With broccoli and beans and for dessert we had watermelon. I also finished off the second chocolate bunny I swiped from Mum's stash. ;O)

Anyway, better be off now, the grandparents, or at least Grandpa wake up early and last time I was here I got woken up too, so I best keep on top of my zzzzs.

I bid you all goodnight!

11:29pm: OK that's a bit dramatic, but it was what happened today when I got to work. When I got there, I saw that a gentleman who often comes was standing n front of the door and I wonder if there was a back entrance, because said gentleman is a bit odd and I didn't want to get into a whole conversation about how the library wasn't opening until 1pm and he can't come into foyer.

But nope, there's no back entrance, at least not one I can get into with my swipe card, so back to the front I went, by the time I got there one of my co-workers was there and there was a problem...the door wasn't working! You'd swipe you card, it'd beep, but the door wouldn't move! One by one my other co-workers arrived - there's four of us on Sunday - and none of our cards could get the door open!

So eventually we had to call one of the higher up Librarians to see if she had any ideas and in the end she had to come and get in via the backdoor - which needs a special key. Although we had to wait for about 20 minutes for her to arrive, with the odd gentleman speculating on various ways to open the door - all of which would probably have set off an alarm and had the cops coming!

In the end we got inside just before the library was due to open, and luckily unlike last weekend there wasn't an avalanche of books so we managed to keep on top of everything. Good times. :O)

After finishing up there I headed off to church where Father Rex was officially installed by the Bishop as our Parish Priest. This meant there was a supper afterwards! Yummy! :OD I didn't stick around there too long because I wanted to watch David Attenborough's Great Barrier Reef doco on the ABC. Also, it was dark out there.

And I've just made a purchase of an umbrella that's small enough to fit into the waterproof bag! It's costing me $36, but it's very adorable, it has raindrops on it, some of them with faces! I'll take a pic when it arrives.

Yawn! It's later than I thought...which means...no memes! Which is kind of embarrassing, :OP I think I'll stop mentioning them and you can all just be surprised when some pop up! ;O)

For now, though, goodnight!

11:28pm: Yes indeed! The cards and blueberry muffins were very well received and lunch was most yummy! The only downside was my friend didn't end up coming, but I'll be seeing her tomorrow, with the muffins that are left over and some Cheezels.

One thing that's not good, the pants I bought! The sales lady assured me when I bought them that they would stretch so I needed to buy a size smaller than usual, but that turned out to be a very bad move because they didn't and about three hours after putting them on, I was so uncomfortable that after church I took them off in the car so I could put on my work pants instead!

So...I hope I can return them, I had a bit of a worry when I got home and couldn't find the bag or receipt...the bag was obviously thrown out at some point and the receipt was in my recycling bin. But of course I cut the tags off so I could wear them, so they're not exactly in the same condition as I bought them. Still, I feel like I should get a refund because I only bought them in that size on the advice of the sales lady. It's not my fault she gave shitty advice.

The only question is...should I try and return them ASAP, that is tomorrow morning before I go to my friends, or should I wait? The Mall isn't really on my way unless I'm going to Dee Why Library or the gym so I probably should just wait until I'm doing that. Although...the receipt does say something about returns needing to be in 14 days. I should check when I bought them.

And now its rather late and of course, I managed not to get quite enough sleep because Mrs S called me a bit early because she and her husband woke up early and she remembered how I wanted to come earlier to get to the lunch. As it turned out I ended up getting there at 8:55am instead of 9am, pft.

But yes, I'm tired, so I'm off now.

Goodnight all!

11:25pm: Not much happened today...or rather quite a bit did happen, but none of it was super interesting. I went to the Mall hoping to find something to put under the sink to hold my washing up gloves and sponges and stuff, but apparently they weren't much options unless one wanted to screw something in - which I can't do because I'm only renting. I did consider buying a shower caddy, but I thought the little hanging bits would be too think thus I'd be unable to close the cupboard door. Maybe I should do something with suction cups...I didn't end up returning that rack to K-Mart so there's a possibility.

Speaking of suction cups, Aldi was selling suction cup shower racks too, so I bought one and what do you know, it took a bit of work but I managed to get it to stick on the wall! That's pretty cool, it seems to be holding really well. Although it's occurred to me that steam might end up causing it to fall off, especially since I enjoy hot showers. Especially when it gets colder and the window will be closed... I guess we'll have to see.

I also considered purchasing one of those bluetooth head sets, but I don't really want to stick something in my ear whenever I go driving. Then I thought maybe I should get one of those ones that has its own speaker and you just press it to answer the call. Only problem with that is that you can't actually make calls from it - because it's got no number pad or speech recognition.

So once again I looked at using voice commands on my phone - its supposed to have it and finally I discovered where it is...it's the Google app, apparently it's not just for searching the web, you can use it to open stuff on your phone too. Quite handy I got it to call Mum this evening, although not while I was driving. I'm not sure if it works when the phone's screen is turned off...I guess if I just plug it in I could keep the screen on at all times. I even dictated a short text message on it, although I didn't actually send it.

I was also trying to find some stuff for Mrs S, but alas no luck! I'm hoping to go ice skating tomorrow and some of the same shops are there so hopefully I can look there and perhaps have some luck. I also have a 7 bucks voucher to spend at Target, they wouldn't give me a refund for my fabric cube without the receipt only the voucher. Perhaps I should put it towards some new gumboots? I dunno...

And once again I've reached the end of the week without doing any memes, I'm somewhat ashamed, but I guess it can't be helped.

I also looked at my health insurance...apparently if I do nothing my Medbibank Private insurance will restart itself on the 19th June, hmmm...But I was considering going with that other company. I should look into that some more, I think.

There was a bit of worry today when I went to the pharmacy to get more medication only to find that pyschiatrist hadn't sent the new script in! Damn, I totally should have called last week! I called from the pharmacy, but my psychiatrist was seeing another patient, so I had to leave it with the receptionists and hope for the best.

Thankfully, I later got a phoncall saying everything was sorted, so I was able to pick up my script, phew, what a relief, especially since it's the one I can't stop taking suddenly! I was worried I'd have to go to the doctor and see if they could write me a stop-gap script.

And lastly...I went to my parents place and later we headed out to the Golf Club for the 10 dollar Friday dinner which this week was fish and chips, yum! Dad wasn't going to come at first because he's had a long week and had a bit of a headache, but Mum got him to come. :OP

So all in all a good day and I even got my washing done! :OD Although I've had to hang it up inside, because it looks like the weather is finally turning, but I'm not actually sure if they'll be any rain...

And I also went to the gym too, so I ticked all the boxes today!

Oh and the DVDs I ordered from Ebay arrived! Sweet! I must leave feedback for that, actually! So off I go!

Lastly...I've decided to upgrade to Windows 10, my laptop keeps telling me to do it...and Google assures me I can roll back to Windows 7 if I don't like it. Here's hoping it won't suck. :OP

Goodnight all!

11:21pm: First, my left knee is hurting and my abdominal area is continuing to be an ass, to the extent that I almost had a panic attack today while working at the library! So not cool.

Also not cool, when I spoke to my mother this morning before heading into the library she told me that she had just been speaking with C, the landlady and apparently they don't want me living here in the Granny Flat and they certainly don't want to suggest to perspective purchasers that I could be a tenant. Hmpf. I suppose she could have changed her mind after talking to her husband, N, but I tell you this happens quite a bit. She'll say one thing to me and then the completely opposite to my mother and vice versa. WTF? It's very confusing.

So the search for a new place to live is back on! I got rather excited this evening when I thought that I might be able to afford a home loan that would get me into an old unrenovated apartment. But of course I managed to stuff up my figures and it turns out I could only get a loan big enough to buy something way out of Sydney. :OP Not to mention the apartment that spawned this has all ready found a buyer. Boo.

Anyway, I was over at my parents house for dinner when all this went down, it was roast chicken from Woolies and very yummy it was too! :OD There'd been some drama before I came over, Dad was on a step ladder polishing the car when he accidentally fell off it! Fortunately there's nothing broken, but his leg is really saw now, I hope he feels better soon!

I also hope I feel better soon, as I mentioned my guts continue to be an ass and I have work to do tomorrow! It was uncomfortable enough today that I had to give up on the idea of going skating after finishing work at Belrose Library. I was quite disappointed.

Although as proof that everyone makes mistakes, when I got to Belrose Library this morning my co-worker had forgotten the keys to get in! :Oo We had to call one of the library managers, but it took her about 20 minutes to arrive, but we managed to open on time at least.

Right, I should be off to bed now, like I said more work tomorrow and alas the game between the two Aussies at the Aussie Open started late so I won't be able to stay up and watch it. Suffice to say I'm going for John Millman, you go man!

Goodnight all!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:27pm: Or probably more like two...the first part of today was ridiculously hot! Like it was all ready 30 degrees C at 8:30am when I was driving to work! The heat lasted until about 6pm, at which point the predicted storms started to break over my suburb and now, it's coming down out there and is also pretty damn windy. Tomorrow definitely looks like it'll be a day for long pants. I don't remember the weather being so over the place last year, but who knows, I could have just forgotten.

Anyway, it's later than it should be so I better keep this update short, there's not a lot to report regarding today anyway, just the normal stuff, work, the gym...but I did go to Sam, Jo and Mack's for dinner which was very yummy fish fingers, mashed potatoes and peas - I haven't had fish fingers in ages. And they really like the biscuits, even the off-cuts, LOL! Go me.

Also, Jo was nice enough to offer me the use of her old overlocker! That's the machine you use to hem clothes properly, which is certainly something I could use. Although it's not threaded right now so I'll have to figure out how to do that. I need to find the User Manual online because Jo couldn't find the one that came with the machine. I'll keep you updated on what, if anything I do with it.

Right, I better go, sorry for the short entry syndrome, I did have something to write about that I forgot to do yesterday, but alas I've managed to forget what it is again!

Oh, I re-donated the ice skates to Vinnies, because they probably were never going to be comfortable.

It's going to be a busy day for me tomorrow! Wish me luck!
