11:44pm: Yes, indeed the first Junior Grand Prix event of the 2017-2018 season is happening up in Brisbane this week! I watched the ladies and mens short programs live yesterday and this afternoon it was the short dance and mens free programs. Interestingly and strangely there's no pairs competition in this event, I always though ice dancing was the least popular of the skating events, the more you know!

So at the end of today the gold, silver and bronze Junior men were crowned. :O) Three Russian born lads, although the gold medalist actually represents USA, so not a clean sweep. :OP But there were three Aussie men and a New Zealander in the mix! One of the Aussie men and the New Zealander were very impressive! There was also a kid from Mexico who kicked some major ass - well maybe not so much scoring wise but still!

Ah figure skating so fun to watch! Although I probably peered at my laptop screen too long because I ended up with a headache thankfully I took some ibproufen and it's good now although yet again I've neglected my fic, honestly me, get with the program!

Speaking of ice skating, I'm pretty sure I won't go tomorrow because I've still got a cough from my cold so it's probably not a good idea. Fortunately, I don't have to worry about my beanie because my friend kindly went and got it for me, yay! Although I feel bad about leaving the beanie with her for too long since I haven't actually given her the money for it yet! Oh well I'll guess I'll figure it out.

Anywho, I better not dilly dally because it's almost midnight and I do have work tomorrow, plus I woke up at like 4am this morning and tossed and turned for a while until I went back to sleep!

Besides I don't actually have anything else to report so I might as well wrap this thing up.

Goodnight all!

11:34pm: Indeed! I couldn't remember when I last updated so I just checked and I haven't since Friday! Dang.

Well, first things first, on Friday I got a call from the HR people while I was at the gym, no dice with the job, apparently my lack of experience with children's events and my somewhat simplistic answers to interview questions (I'm not entirely sure what that was all about) dooed me. I say boo! But on the other hand there was no promise of it been made permanent and even if it did I'd have to reapply for it. Screw that shit.

I wonder though, if there's going to be an attempt to break up the amalgamated council, several of them have been fighting the State Government and the premiere has backed down! Of course, this doesn't affect the all ready merged ones, but the Pittwater people are still seriously pissed about what's gone down. But it'd be quite a bru-ha-ha.

Then there was the get together on Saturday, although I got a call on the way there from Mum, apparently Dad wasn't well! It was bad enough that he called the home doctor to come and see him. Mum thought he might have to go to the hospital for tests! Fortunately it wasn't as bad as all that, apparently Dad had been worried he was having a stroke or something, but it turned out to be a stomach virus. He's much better today - which I know because I'm here at the parental abode for my usual Monday night staying over, despite Mum being away.

He cooked my dinner so er...I hope he's properly recovered, gulp! It was a yummy dinner though sausages, boiled potatoes and beans.

But the get-together was good! I had no idea Ben lived so close to the big shopping centre, we went down there and I went to Jay-Jays, but the Pusheen water bottle I wanted wasn't in stock. Bummer.

And then we hung out and chatted as we do. :O) And had a dinner cooked by Ben - an interesting concoction of rice and sausages, LOL.

Anywho, I'm rather sleepy so I bet head off now, gotta get my beauty sleep!

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!

11:28pm: So for the past few days I've continued investigating tablets and I thought to myself, you know what, maybe I should buy one of those cheap 7 inch tablet they have at Officeworks, it comes in all sorts of different colours and I could use it for apps and type my fanfic on this laptop etc etc.

Except, I kinda forgot the main problem with that tablet, it's got some weird shit going on with the screen, like...it's weird? It's got this kind of glare to it and it's nearly impossible to hold it at an angle that doesn't cause it to look weird. It's not easy on the eye at all, boo.

So, now I have to take it back...again, not that they know I bought one before, but dang what a waste of time, grumble grumble.

I think I'm just going to go back to looking at second hand tablets, or see if I can get the old Motorola to work properly in the meantime, damn thing's so slow these days. But it's not like there's not enough storage on it, very strange...Maybe that's just how it goes.

Right, what else to report - well, I got an email today from Mona Vale with a whoooole lotta shifts for the upcoming months! Wow, what luck! I can take all of them pretty much...except for the two I'm already working, LOL.

In less good luck, it would appear the library job that I'm going to apply for was originally advertised only internally...I don't remember seeing it, do'h! So now it's being externally advertised, so there's gonna be a heap of applications. Of course, I'm going to call the contact person and let them know I'll be apply and so on, although there is one concern...namely that one of my co-workers who I was working with today had rang up to ask about the job and it sounds like they want someone who'd be willing to do Storytime for the kids. It's not a necessary part of the job description yet, but ewww.

Also I wonder how the days will work out? Plus it's for Manly Library, which is interesting, I wonder why they didn't mention it it in the ad. Eh, whatever.

So time is running short so I better wrap this up - but I need to remember to call a few people on Monday, namely the HR Department about claiming some of my gym membership, I keep forgetting to do so and I need to know if the GST needs to be on the thing or what.

Also, I should call my friend! I saw her in the library today actually, but we didn't have enough time to talk, but I've been too much of a hermit lately.

Right, it's ten minutes to midnight and once again I've been late to get to bed so I shall take this as my cue to exit!

Goodnight all!

11:18pm: My person! I must have overdone it at the gym...at least on the leg press machine because my hip area was most sore today especially when crouching down to put books away at the library. And I think it might have had a knock-on effect because my lower back started hurting too. Then my shoulders...and now my neck. Son of an ass. Suffice to say I didn't end up going ice skating this afternoon, boooo!

It could also be my orthodics, I still haven't made an appointment to get 'em checked out, which could be screwing with my muscles too.

So...yeah, with this general discomfort I'm not much in the mood to update, but I felt I should because...er...I dunno. :OP I thought I had something to update you all about but I guess I don't really. :OP Although I'm watching my house shows and OMG this kitchen has a red sink?! What the actual Hell? I didn't even know they made such things! Cripes, it's as ugly as you'd expect it to be too. :OP Oh well, at least the taps aren't red...if they were I'd be really creeped out.

Oh yeah! I did see my friend who lives nearby at the library today! That was rather exciting, she's mentioned that she often comes in, but I seem to be busy most of that time so she doesn't say anything. But I wasn't doing much this time so I was able to say 'hello'. Nice. :O)

Right, so I'm gonna wrap this up...and hopefully my person will feel way better tomorrow, because otherwise owwwww.

11:52pm: Yes! This evening I not only finally got my umbrella back from my friend's house where I left it like two month ago - buuut I got to hang out with some of my high school friends, one of whom I'd hadn't seen in aaaages!

It was great! :O) We were actually supposed to be helping the friend's whose place it is with packing because she's moving out soon. But we kind of ended up abandoning that, LOL, fail. But it's not as if she's moving out tomorrow so I don't think it's too big a deal. :OP

I was a bit disappointed that I had to leave, but I do have work tomorrow, although even if I didn't I was starting to feel a bit sleepy so I probably would have had to go anyway unless I was going to sleep over or whatever.

Anyway, it was a heap of fun so I told them to let me know next time they were hanging out so I could hopefully join in - unless it was going to be a pub-crawl or something, 'cause they ain't no fun. :OP

Anywho, as mentioned I do have work tomorrow and it's almost midnight so I better wrap this up and hit the hay.

10:28pm: Or at least I do. I dunno if it's because it's that time o' the month or what but I've got some terrible abdominal discomfort and a niggling headache that won't go away despite the fact I took some period pain medication. I hate it when pain relief doesn't work because I can't take anything else for like another hour, by which time I need to be asleep because I have to go to work a bit earlier than usual tomorrow. I sure hope I feel better because otherwise this will suuuck.

Anyway, the get-together with the friends last night went super-awesomely! Except my other friend couldn't come, boo I so should have asked her along earlier, although I'm not entirely sure she would have come anyway, it was a long car ride out there.

Ben's new place is very interesting, it's located directly across from the hospital he works out, he can literally just roll out of bed and get over there in five minutes! I suspects he gives himself more time than that though. :OD

So yeah, I did plan on making this an actual entry, but my discomfort makes that impossible, so instead I'll have to short-entry syndrome you all again. Although before I go you'll all be pleased to hear that Plushy did excellently at his show in Italy, he's got the moves, man, he's got the moves. Note to self: Must go seem him somewhere somehow.

Now, I'm off, let's hope my various aches and pains are gone tomorrow, I got shit to do.

11:45pm: I didn't get around to updating last night because I was busy telling the Figure Skating message board about the ice skating show and thus didn't have time to do so here!

However! In the world of International Figure Skating there's one last competition left, the World Team Trophy which I was watching tonight and then as soon as it finished I had to make cupcakes for the party tomorrow so I'm only just getting around to updating!

Anyway, it was an amazing show! Even though I didn't get a photo with the Aussie skater after all, he disappeared not long after the show finished - probably because it ran late and as soon as it ended the hockey players came out to practice. But! I did spot him in the new gym area at the ice rink while Mum and I were in the foyer picking up our tickets. I'm not sure about the wisdom of putting a big-ass window in a gym area, like you don't really want perfect strangers been able to stare at you!

They've also added a huge TV screen to the ice rink! How cool! There was a professional person filming the show actually, which is why I didn't take much video myself, because the camera he had was waaay better than my mobile. Although, having watched some of the video back I'm most proud of how steady I held it, go me. :OP

Like I said it was a great show, there were lots of skaters from all skill levels, from tiny 5 or 6 year olds to our Aussie Olympic Skater! There was even a skater who twirled fire! Except, she had trouble lighting the fire sticks, so that ended up being a bit awkward, LOL.

And Brendan Kerry (aka the Aussie skater) and his figure skating friend from the US showed off their backflips, which are always a big hit! I need to upload the video of that to show you all.

There were quite a lot of funny moments too, the US guy even skated a bit of Swan Lake en pointe, or should that be en blade and all!

And I can safely say 'the lunge' is the move of the year, everyone was doing it!

Right oh, I better be off now, I need to get the second batch of cupcakes out of the oven and get ready to go to bed. Tomorrow's gonna be a busy day! Wish me luck getting to my friend's housewarming tomorrow, Mike Pence has decided to visit Australia and if we're unlucky my friend and I will get stuck in road closures (just when you thought the US Government couldn't be any bigger of a pain in the ass).

11:46pm: And asleep by now because I need to get up a bit earlier than usual to get to Mrs S's place half an hour earlier than usual, but I got caught up in reading this book about the 747 and doing my Russian, so I don't have much time to update.

I had a good day! I went over to see my friend in Bigola Plateau which was fun, we hang out and shot the breeze and all that jazz. Good times, good times.

Aside from that, not much else report, I'm just waiting for Cold Case to end so I can get to bed, I haven't seen this episode before so that was pretty cool.

So, this is gonna be a short entry, so sorry about that, I'm sure you're all devastated. :OP

One last thought...when I watch my house shows a lot of people seem to buy houses furnished...is that a thing in the US? I've never heard of buying a house in Australia that's fully furnished. seems really bizzare.

On that mystery, I'm off!

11:41pm: So it would seem! After a whole week of wet weather it's finally cleared up out there, and now it's almost gone back to summertime weather! I'm sweating here and have had to turn my air-con on. Only downside to that is it still seems to get cold in the late night so I have to grab the doona, but theeen when I wake up I'm all sweaty and gross.

And that's why spring and autumn are a pain in the ass sleepwise.

Moving along, I got the car registered today, I left it at the mechanics and it was ready to go when I finished work at Mrs S's (although for some reason they didn't answer the phone when I called to confirm that, so I was quite relieved when I got there and found out it was indeed ready.

Although my plan to go to Dee Why Library and the Medical Centre before my library shift didn't happen, instead I went after, but sadly...no sign of the Up. I guess I'll never know what happened to it. But if someone picked it up I hope they can at least use it. Meanwhile I've ordered a new Up and magnetic clip thing, although the former is sure to arrive before the latter, I guess the clip it comes with will be OK?

Moving on, the shift at the library went well, lots of books to return and patrons to assist, good times, good times. :O)

And time is getting away from me and I'm going to see my friend tomorrow so I must be off to bed now.

So I say goodnight!

11:18pm: On this house show I watch on Sunday night. It's called Flip This House and it follows different flippers (as they call them), but I tell ya the last few episodes have been full of Angry Guys, like all yelling and swearing at each other. Can't you boys just get along? :OP

In other news, I finally remembered to get the box my mother found in M and Grandpa's garage from the boot of my car, although with all the rain that's been going on it hasn't really been that feasible. But the rain finally let up this afternoon so when I finished work and popped home before heading to church I carried it, my cupcake carrier (which I got from Mum earlier) and my box of the first few seasons of The Simpsons (which I'd lent to my Uncle Sam and his family and also got back earlier) into the granny flat.

Mum said there were clothes in the box, but imagine my surprise when I opened it and started to go through to find all these clothes I really like but hadn't been able to find! I have no idea why the ended up in M and Grandpa's garage, among them were my Garfield satin pjs, a few of my favourite t-shirts, a dress that'd been super good for the beach and stuff like that! I'd been wondering where it had got to for ages!

This why you have to be careful where you put things when moving!

Anyway! Grandpa's birthday party was great! Although I was only able to be there for an hour (boo), but I got to see M, Grandpa, Aunt Weed, her fiance Pete, Uncle Sam, Aunt Jo, cousin Mack and my parental units. Good times, good times. Although it was super humid today so that was a bit uncomfortable, good thing I wore one of my sundresses!

Aunt Jo kindly cooked sausages early so I had something to eat before I headed off for work - although as it happened the traffic was good (of course) so I ended up being early. I went to look around the shopping centre and got a call from my friend, Ben inviting me to go to the beach (although it was still pretty cloudy at that time!) but alas I couldn't go. Boo! As it happened the weather cleared up during the day and judging from the photo he posted on Facebook it turned out to be quite a nice day.

Speaking of Facebook photos, some people uploaded photos they took, including the group shot! I'm sure you can spot me. :O) And see everyone seems so tall! I thought my heels were a decent height.

Right, I better be off! I've got work tomorrow morning and I still have my Russian to do before I turn in. Let's all hope my bank card arrives tomorrow! I owe Mum another fifty bucks and Mrs S a hundred (I may see if I can send her that money by direct debit, guess it depends what she wants).

Oh and I almost forgot, I went to my parental units this evening after church (they and Mrs Lampe came so we all sat together) so I got delicious lasagna and salad for dinner. Alas the little bro was meant to come, he also missed the party this morning, but he wasn't up to it - apparently he partied a little too hearty last night.

For now, though, goodnight!

Reunited!

Mar. 18th, 2017 11:56 pm

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!

11:36pm: As we all know I've been waiting for my new bank card to arrive, I checked the letterbox when I got home from Mrs S's, but no luck, so I was most pleased when the landlord's wife came later in the afternoon with a letter for me! At least until I opened it.

It was a speeding ticket! From last Tuesday! Fuck! I hadn't realised that in my rush to get to work on time I'd gone 50kms in a school zone. That was 10km over the speed limit!

FUCK! I already had and paid that parking ticket I got on that day, but a $189 speeding ticket?! I may as well not have turned up to work! I make $22 an hour and I worked for four hours that day...which if my maths is halfway decent means I'm out of pocket $100!

And just to rub salt in the wound, the time of the speeding ticket was 9:23am, literally seven minutes before the school zone ends! If I had have been actually late I would have been better off! In fact I would have been going 20kms under the normal speed limit of that road!

I was going to suck it up and pay it, as painful as it is, when I noticed that on the back you could apply for leniency if you have a clean driving record - which I do - although it also seemed to suggest that wasn't possible if it was a school zone related fine, it wasn't really clear. The letter also said that less than 4% of applications succeed. But [personal profile] nashira and her Nan said to me over Facebook I might as well give it a go.

Seriously, though, I hope I have some good luck here, I know a speeding fine is supposed to be expensive to stop you from doing it, but when you make minimum wage like me it's a total kick in the face. Not to mention a bit unfair, if kids are still going to school at 9:23 they're running pretty bloody late.

Anyway, aside from that I don't have much else to say except I did pop over to the Disability Service that I'm employed through now to drop off my timesheet and enquire about possibly getting more hours. They're gonna look into what the have and get back to me, I wonder if I'll be able to do any of them, working as a carer is quite hard work and a lot of responsibility so...

And, it's coming up on midnight so I better head off, I keep undersleeping, it's no good for me, dang it!

So I shall say, goodnight!

11:18pm: Or it did, it's finally starting to settle down, but gee did it suck...stupid knee pain. I really should book that appointment with the podiatrist, I think I've mentioned before that the last time I kept getting leg pain and whatnot it was because they weren't right for my gait anymore.

Anyway, I was rather annoyed because I couldn't think of any reason I should have a sore knee, it's not like I went ice skating or anything this afternoon, but haven't said that, work at the library today was an absolute madhouse! There was a Union Picnic Day yesterday and the library was closed. Seems that everyone in the whole suburb had decided to come along and return their books! The chute was utterly full, books spilled out and some where jammed in the top of the slots. We have two large blue trolleys to get books out, we had to use both of them twice and even though we worked hard there was still quite a bit of shelving left to do for tomorrow's shift, including me, LOL. No rest for the wicked indeed!

Now, my friend (not the one who's gone back to Wales) and I had discussed getting together this afternoon, but after the busy, busy shift I didn't really feel like it. It turned out she'd been in Mona Vale earlier that day and had SMSed me. But I SMSed back suggesting we get together on Tuesday - since that is my day off - or maybe next Saturday (don't know what to do about ice skating though!), although I haven't heard back yet.

Not much else to report aside from that, although I managed to leave the book I was reading at the library and I was just about finished too, boo. Ah well, at least it's given me the chance to finish up the other book.

And now I'm watching the Amazing Spider-Man movie, I never did see this one...that Lizard is creepy as shit. Also, Andrew Garfield reminds me of someone with his hair and I've just realised...I'm pretty sure it's our top Aussie male skater! Nice, he and some of the other Aussies were on the SBS figure skating highlights today, although they didn't show their whole programs, I'm disappointed. One of them did skate to my mother's mobile phone ring tone, seriously so bizarre.

And now, I shall be off! Goodnight all!

11:32pm: I got an SMS from my bank this afternoon saying that due to suspicious activity my credit card has been cancelled and they need to send me a new one! Well shit. I have no idea when it happened, I called the number in the SMS (rest assured it was not a scam) all the recording on the end would say is that a suspicious transaction had been done online, but they couldn't say what said transaction was for. Which worried me a bit because I did pay that parking fine online yesterday...but when I went online to check my account, that particular transaction was still listed as having gone through, so I assume it wasn't it.

But who stole my card information! And how can I stop them doing so again? If it was an online thing is there something on my laptop that let them steal it? I have a Virus checker on my laptop, but these guys seem to be really good at finding weaknesses.

Suffice to say, I should probably but my card in one of those RDIF defender things so they can't phish me while I'm out and about. Although I'm not sure if I actually need to buy one or if just a regular thick paper sleeve will do. I guess I'll see what the net has to say.

In further not so good news, the get together with my friends today was cancelled. I'm seriously glad now that I went to the get-together on Saturday! But I'm rather bummed for my other friend, I'm not sure she got to see the other friend very much at all. :O(

Anywho, the is a bit of good news, namely that I got my kitchen and bathroom cleaned up pretty well and passed Mum's inspection after Scripture class today. Although, she did help me out a bit I have to admit, now I just need to make sure I keep the kitchen and bathroom clean, come on me, you can do it!

And now, I must head off, bed is needed, I managed to not get enough sleep last night, do'h.

Oh and after the bummer of my card, I ended up buying myself some Pusheen stuff from an Aussie shop (reasonably priced postage for the win!) and paid by direct deposit since I didn't have a credit card number, LOL :O) I wonder how long they'll come to arrive...

Goodnight all!

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.

9:52pm: Actually, I don't know if that's true, but it feel like it should be, I mean...red in the bathroom? Just sounds wrong. Although there was another bathroom in the house in question that had green wallpaper, I was on board with that! :OP

Just to clarify, I'm watching my house shows, I'm not actually looking at houses myself - although I'm reminded that I think they might have finished the display suite of the apartment building I've bought off the plan, I should find out for sure and then the parental units and I can go visit it!

Also, is a weird that the dude in this current house show wants elements of the Pacific Northwest in the house when he and his fiance are in fact on the east coast, wrong side of the country, my good sir.

Moving on, the get together looks to be going ahead tomorrow evening/night, yay! The only problem is my friend hasn't replied to me about whether he's going to the party at 4pm - which means I'll have to take public transport there because I finish work at 5pm - or later. I wonder if he's not getting my messages over Facebook, I'd assume so though. I guess he's thinking about and will get back to me.

But, for now let's return to the past...to...

The Last Full Day and Night of the Cruise )

Right! There is of course the last morning, but...it's getting late and since I'll be having a quite a big day tomorrow so I better wrap this up. Not sure if I'll be able to update tomorrow, but if I don't, I'll tell the last part of the cruise.

For now, goodnight!

11:23pm: Because it seems to defeat the purpose a bit? At the moment I've been reading books from the "Adult Summer Reading Guide" which was put out by the libraries and on the front cover of it it lists the dates 1st December to 28th February. There's a competition to go with it, however I just noticed as I was filling out the card to enter that the closing date for it is tomorrow. A full 18 days before the 28th! What's up with that? Apart from anything else it means I have to rush to finish reading so I can enter, although I have to say the book I'm reading at the moment is extremely interesting so I'm getting through it at quite a good pace. However, I still have to speed read a book I've previously read so I can fill out a row on the Bingo Card! Which strikes me as somewhat dodgy, but I did read a few other books on the card so i feel like it evens out.

Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what to do with myself tomorrow afternoon - it's set to get quite hot indeed and I'm not sure if my air-con will be able to handle it! The parental abode may call again, since I have to go over there anyway after work to drop off my suitcase, which the little bro will be taking along with all the other luggage and Mum and Dad to the city on Saturday.

I'm relieved though that the time I'm meeting my friends at one of their houses before going on to yet another friend's house for the birthday get together has been moved to later on Saturday. This means I'll be able to make cupcakes after I finish work at the library before the time change it looked like it would be a very close thing indeed - or that I might not be able to do it at all.

Apart from that, not much else to report, except that I didn't end up getting my hair done because I had to do my washing a day earlier than usual since there'd be no time to do so tomorrow. I managed to get it all done though, even my sheets because the rain has disappeared once more so I was able to hang them on the line and they dried.

Oh and I also got to the library for my volunteering, always a good thing, plus there was some cupcakes there because the refurbished work on the upstairs study area had been finished and so was re-opening. Yum!

After that I went hunting one last time for a swimming costume, but, I guess it ain't gonna happen. I think the black and white flowered one will be OK.

Right, it's getting late, so I better get a move on, sleep is important after all.

Goodnight all!

11:54pm: Yes indeed, I didn't update last night because I ended up staying at my parents' place and I didn't have my laptop with me - since staying over wasn't part of the plan - and I also had a rather nasty headache too.

In fact Dad also had a headache and even though we had our tuxedo t-shirts (which Mum thought were hilarious) we didn't end up going out to the golf club for dinner after all, which was a bit of a shame. However, Dad cooked sausages and made a salad, yum!

They also got me a card and an instant scratchie, but alas I didn't win anything, boo.

This morning, after breakfast I headed off home to get dressed in work appropriate clothes and headed off to the library, after coming back to set my recorder for the ice skating (I hope it recorded, I forgot to check actually!) and got there in time.

Work went well! We weren't entirely sure what would happen since it was so hot, but it was also cloudy so not really a beach day. As it happened we weren't too crowded, although there was an sketch club there.

After work it was off to my friends place, where we were joined by our other friend - a bit late since the day had cleared up so I guess people decided to go to the beach after all - but there was lots of fun to be had catching up and watching some interesting stuff one of the friends had downloaded.

Definitely gotta arrange to see the friends more!

Well, it's quite late now, so I better head off, I might need to go over and see the little bro's apartment tomorrow morning before work so I can't sleep in too much!

I bid you all goodnight!

11:36pm: Ha ha, as you can see I obviously didn't have a title to go for this entry, but h ey it is what it is.

Anywho, today was a regular working at the library on a Sunday day, except for when I got a hair on my tongue which almost made me gag. Ugh, it was awful! I have no idea where it came from, though I'm pretty sure it was at least mine. Still gross.

Also, I got a phone call from M inviting me to come over on Tuesday - my birthday - for canasta and yummy food! Hooray! Although, one of my friends did get back to me about doing something on Tuesday, so whoops. Although I guess technically I could do something after finishing with M an Grandpa, but I have work the next day so...

Speaking of work, once again I've left updating the ol' journal too late for meme related sheninigans. Ugh, dang it! Didn't help I got distracted by House Hunters International, I'm still wondering why this couple with a kid wants a one bedroom. Surely you'd want two in that case? Although I guess they don't have the money or maybe just have the kid sleep in the loungeroom. Still weird to me, though. :OP

I also went to Church after work today, which was a good thing because they needed me to do the Powerpoint, although Dad managed to forget that it was Sunday and thus didn't show up! Poor Dad. :OP However, I'm over here at the parental abode because that's how I roll on Sunday nights. Also Mum told me to come and fix up the doona in the spare room. To my confusion the doona appears to be fine? Maybe Dad fixed it, seems like something he'd do.

Righto, I better head off now, I didn't get enough sleep last night because I did not go to bed early after all (shame on me!) and I have to take my External harddrive to the computer repair shop and get to the gym tomorrow and maybe come back here to help Dad move furniture because the carpet's getting steam cleaned on Tuesday.

And now, goodnight all!
