anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
10:46pm: Because they are! I may have mentioned this before, but they're livestreaming the Junior Grand Prix and the YouTube channel says you can set a reminder for it, but all the times are wrong! Which is weird because I'm signed in as an Aussie...or am I? I should check that I guess!

Anyway, quick entry because not much to report, just a normal Thursday, except I didn't have to work at the library this afternoon (although I will be tomorrow). I ended up sleeping in and getting to my volunteering rather late LOL, but hey I got there and that's the important thing. :OP

Moving on, the mouth guard feels quite strange and is hard to get out, but I have to say...my jaw certainly feels a lot less tight in the mornings, so I guess I do clench my teeth in my sleep. Although now I wonder...will I need to wear the splint for the rest of my life?! That doesn't sound fun at all. I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.

What else? Not a lot, I was supposed to print out this picture of lamb stew for Mrs S - so she can put it in her recipe folder, except I don't know exactly what kind of lamb stew recipe she has. There's a whole lot of different types.

Anyway I have to go to bed, so I better wrap this up. Tomorrow is set to be 28 degress and Saturday even hotter at 33! Yikes. Better dress appropriately on Saturday so I don't end up getting overheated.

Whoops forgot about this entry and now I really have to go..I'm falling asleep!

Goodnight all!

11:19pm: Ok, I actually started this update last night, but then somehow closed my browser and by then it was quite late and I had to get to bed.

Anyway, it did auto-save it, so let's get back on it:


The reason for the subject heading? Well, exciting news! Our Aussie Skater, Brendan Kerry has just picked up a bronze medal at the Lombardia Trophy! Aaah! It's not one of the big well-known skating competitions, but important people still go there, so yaaay! How awesome is that! :O) I'm very much looking forward to seeing him at the Olympics!

Speaking of skating, I didn't end up doing any of my own today, it was rather warm and I ended up feeling pretty hot in my jeans and just generally uncomfortable, I ended up turning around and heading back home a third of the way there. I felt kind of disappointed in myself for not going - pft story of my life - I did actually think of going once I changed my clothes, but then my abdominal area decided to hurt and I just felt lazy.

I did end up going to the local shopping centre, to see about buying new sneakers, where I was surprised to discover that the sports shop has been bought out by another chain! That was quick, there was no indication they were in trouble. I think all the staff stayed which is good to know.

Anyway, they were having a 20% off sale, but alas I couldn't find a pair that really spoke to me. I thought about getting a rainbow pair but since I wear them to work I don't want them to be too over the top...or maybe I was just feeling cheap and the fact I couldn't find any under 80 bucks that weren't bright pink was what put me off. LOL.

As for today, eh, not a lot happened, I don't think I got enough sleep though because I felt really odd this morning, like...bummed out and shit. I feel better now, though, so that's a relief.

But damnit, once again I started writing on my fanfic too late, because I really have to go to bed now and I've done like...three sentences of it. :O( Perhaps I'll have to give up on my 70 books a year target, because reading stuff is interfering with my writing stuff. :OP

Anywho, time for me to go, want to keep on the right side of the zzzs!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodnight all!

10:25pm: And it kicks me in the ass in the form of a nasty headache at the end of the day, which means I haven't written a single word on my fanfic. Sigh!!! Don't leave me, mojo, I love you!

But! I do have exciting news, first off my Viktor Nikiforov Nendroid arrived! OMG, he's so cute! And he looks perfect next to the Yuuri nendroid - please observe.!

Also! As promised a photo of Fluffshenko the Llama. Isn't he totally adorable? SO FLUFFY!

Although speaking of shenko's I was rather worried about Fishshenko this morning he's looking a little a drab...also he was hiding behind the heater in his tank. I thought he was dead actually! But nope. His fins don't look as full as they used to. I hope he's OK, I changed some his water, I've been slacking on that. Honestly me, get the program! I've just seen him swimming around so perhaps he's recovered! I think maybe I've under fed him a bit? Hard to know with fish isn't it?

Oh well, despite the headache I have been enjoying the Junior Grand Prix skating there's been dancing, pairs and now the ladies! There's been an Aussie in each (and in the men too, except I wasn't able to watch that live) although alas our Junior World Champion pairs skaters juuust missed the podium. Ah well, it's early in the season.

Anywho, beyond that not much else to say except it would appear to be ant season again, shiiit, I hate those buggers. Could think I've still got my ant poison from earlier in the year. But seriously get outta my house you nasty things.

Right gonna wrap this up here because the ladies are skating as I said and it's hard to type and watch at the same time!

Good luck to the Aussie there (who trains at the rink I go to!) and goodnight all1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


I better be off then, so goodnight!

11:25pm: Nah, not really, which is a shame...not that I haven't been enjoying myself, although I'm slacking on the fan fic, maybe I really do need to extra the digit as my mother would say and go somewhere else and actually sit at a table or something to work on it!

What else to report? Well, I've decided to use my acne cream on my face again since the pimples have returned. My only concern is I might end up bleaching my bed sheets or PJs, I probably should have put it on a bit earlier...although I haven't been able to find much info online about that.

Moving along, there was more ice skating to watch yesterday as the Junior Grand Prix event in Brisbane wrapped up. I missed like half of the ladies event which was a bummer, but I did at least get to see one of the Aussie girls. Yay! None of the Aussies finished very high, but hey it's the first event so there's nowhere to go but up. Also there was no pairs event in this one (which is weird, but OK) so our World Champions didn't compete. Fingers crossed when they do show up they'll go great!

Although watching the skating meant I didn't go skating, although I didn't really plan on it because I still have a cough from the cold so one shouldn't overdo these things, except that does mean I still haven't got my beanie from my friend! Ah well, next Saturday.

I also spent last night at the parentals because there was a fun-run this morning and Dad and I thought parking might be difficult in Dee Why for church, although as it happened there was hardly any traffic and plenty of parking. LOL. I guess that's how it goes.

Right, I better get going, it's almost 15 minutes 'til midnight and I've got work tomorrow morning and then volunteering! I be a busy Moose indeed!

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: Huh, I thought I got enough zzzzs last night, but apparently not? Either that or the ice skating i did this afternoon tired me out more than I thought.

Either way I can barely keep my eyes open, which is annoying because I wanted to write more on my fic and actually put together a coherent journal entry. LOL, so much fail on my behalf.

I can't even remember what I've said in previous entries? Did I mention the library assistant interview next Wednesday? Well even if I did I shall mention it again because this is awesooome! I need to get myself prepared for it though, ask the right questions, answer the right questions and all that.

Right, so due to overwhelming tiredness I'm gonna wrap this up here, I gotta brush my teeth before going to bed after all!

And now I say goodnight!

11:55pm: Which is why I'm updating my journal with only five minutes to spare!

But yes, I've been drawing on my new tablet, or at least, I drew the actual line art on my Bamboo Spark and then coloured it on the tablet.

I'm looking forward to getting my pen stylus though, because it's a little hard to colour in without it, the regular stylus isn't much better then using my finger, LOL! Although I probably need to get a better digital art program, this one doesn't do layers or anything.

I went ice skating after work this afternoon, it was crowded as all Hell, but still really fun! I do love to skate, even if I am pretty bad at it, LOL.

Anyway, tomorrow I get the day off work to celebrate my cousin's birthday, yay! Except I have to make him a card and I haven't yet, I'm not sure what to draw!

I also need to do stuff with my fanfic tomorrow, the Yuri on Ice fans in the chatroom I'm in are looking forward to reading it and I've been dillydallying. Come on me, you can do it!

Okedoke, best be off now, with any luck I'll update tomorrow too (I'm reminded that I've fallen behind on my daily positive thing...gotta work on that.)

11:54pm: Right I've left this way too late to update, but just a few quick pieces of news for you all.

Firstly, after all that I found my activity tracker, the magnetic part of it had stuck to my keys and when I got up on Friday morning and actually focused on the hanging from the hook I saw it there! Phew! I also put in a new battery because the one it came with was definitely on the fritz. Although that still doesn't explain why the 'find tracker' thing in the app said it was in the city, seriously WTF?

Also, in regards to the subject heading the cement guys finally came by this morning to put in the new concrete. Luckily, the landlord had these planks behind his house which I'm using as a walk-way to my door. The new cement looks super nice, it's also much higher, almost the same level as inside the flat. Which makes me wonder if I should be worried if it rains? Won't water be able to seep inside much more easily? I sure hope not!

I didn't go ice skating this evening because a co-worker tipped me off that the outdoor ice skating rink is back in the city again! Sweeet! I'm planning to go on Tuesday this week, although it might have to be Thursday since I'm hanging out at M and Grandpa's on Tuesday, but then I'm going over Monday night so...I suppose I'd leave when M goes for her nap. Anyway the point is, I want to go at an off-peak time, it's cheaper then.

Anyway, it's almost midnight and I didn't get enough shut-eye last night so I gotta wrap this up...lack of sleep is making me feel uninspired to write and that ain't cool.

So now, bed is needed! Goodnight all!

11:33pm: Yes indeed! And I think Mum's right, oil heaters really do stop moisture from forming, which is a damn good thing because as I might have mentioned before I've been having trouble with that, like when I wake up in the morning there's so much moisture on the inside of my windows you could get a glass of water from it! It's also having an unfortunate effect of causing mould to appear in my pantry. Gross.

The only downside, I don't think this heater I got has a timer on it and I don't think I should leave it on all night...although maybe it'll work with the timer switch thing...

Also it's meant to have four little wheels, I didn't notice until I got it home that there's only three. I'm having to jack it up using an old glasses case. I got it from the Target at Macquarie Mall (it was ice skating day today :O), so I dunno. I guess I could go to the Target at the Warringah Mall and return it or at least ask for fourth wheel LOL.

Anyway! I have exciting news from the big bro, my parents timing was awesome, he and my sister-in-law, Eri had their baby, it's a boy! They've called him John after Dad (and Dad's grandfather, I think). Which is interesting, because I'm not sure if John can be transliterated into Japanes, I guess he could be 'Jon'. Scratches head.

In other news, ice skating went well! Although I think I'm not used to harder ice, I got them sharpened last week and while I did move better today, it was still a bit scratchy. In the summer the ice is softer because of the sun (or maybe because the ice rink was old? They've renovated) and the blade seems to dig in better. Also they are playing ice hockey there now and if I remember right, ice hockey players prefer harder ice. Dang, don't know what this means for me.

What else? Well tomorrow is the play! So I get the day off work tomorrow, nice :O). I'm planning to go to the gym because I totally slacked off on that this week! Aside from that the day is pretty much free until 3:30 when I go to my Aunt and Uncle's place to get ready to head off. The play starts at 5pm in the city and afterwards we'll go out to dinner. I'm looking forward to it.

That's pretty much all I have to say for now...I'm going to try and catch up on my Positive Notes because I've totally slacked off and need to catch up on three months worth of them! o.O I hope I can!

For now though I bid you all goodnight!

11:24pm: Which is making me think I must have long term sleep-deprivation or something, it's rather concerning to be honest! Obviously I'm not time managing things properly! Although I'm really starting to wonder how I managed to write and keep up with my reading all those years ago. It's not like I wasn't working at all or anything...I guess I have to blame Tumblr there's so much going on on that thing. Perhaps I need to accept if I skip a day I won't be catching up :OP

Moving along, not much to report, except I didn't manage to go ice skating yesterday! I thought I'd have enough time to go and get my skates sharpened and get back to the Mall, but as usual things took longer than expected. So, I'm thinking of going tomorrow instead...otherwise it'll be getting on to three weeks since I've been! I'm also seriously considering just leaving my skates at the rink to be sharpened off-site, because all that extra travelling to the skate shop probably adds up in time and petrol costs.

In other news, I keep buying things and then returning them, for example today I went to Officeworks looking for a stylus, which I got, but I also saw these small tablets for sale, they came in different colours and I though the green one would be a fine replacement for my old tablet (that thing is slow as shit now a days), but alas it had crappy screen resolution, so I took it back. I probably expected too much from a $66 thing. LOL.

I should just accept my Bamboo art tablet, it's a bit small and weird to draw on something and have it show up on the laptop screen. Either that or try and find a different tablet, but eh, the decent one's are still pretty expensive.

Anyway, I have to head off because even if I do get to start work an hour later tomorrow because of the public holiday I really should endeavour to catch up on my sleep, unless I want to keep this eye twitch thing, which I totally do not.

And that's all I have to say about that. :OP

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:12pm: Yep, I was hoping the weather people had dropped the ball on their predictions (it happened a couple of weeks back) but nope, it looks like it's going to be a very wet weekend. To which I say boo, because I wish to go ice skating and I probably need to get my blades sharpened which means driving and I'm a little leery about driving in the pouring rain. Especially since some of the roads I take are prone to flooding with this sort of weather, I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers.

Also...the weather was deceptively clear when I got home from doing some shopping today (after finishing up at Mrs S's place) and it was sheet washing day so I put them on and headed for the gym. However, a little over halfway through my work out it started absolutely bucketing down! So I had to do some creative sheet hanging because I can't put them on the line. Which is bad news because I don't have any room anything else so no clothes washing today...I really hope I can get everything done and dry by Monday.

What else to report? Well, I did briefly buy a Bamboo Spark which was on special at Aldi - it's been there for a while and it looked interesting. I have a Bamboo One but it's weird to draw on because you can't actually see what you're drawing on the thing itself, it appears on the laptop screen and it's a little disconcerting. When I got the Spark home though I discovered there's an app for tablets and smartphones that lets you draw on the screen and it's free! The Spark is a little weird...in that you actually draw on paper with a special pen which then sends the strokes you made to an app, so there's still a bit of disconnect. Plus it was sixty bucks, and I'm not meant to be spending money on extraneous stuff, so after the gym I returned it.

The only downside to the app is that my phone screen is too small for it to really work properly and my tablet is a bit too old - on the other hand it could just be the stylus I'm using...might need to check into that. So I might just have to stick with the Bamboo One after all that. Pft, fail.

On the fan fic front, I'm most relieved that while working at Mrs S's today I found a way to move the story forward, phew! I was getting bogged down and the headache I had last night wasn't helping at all. Of course, having a story idea while working isn't very helpful because I couldn't write it down, but patience is a virtue, or something. :OP

So, it's getting late and thus I better head off, I only have one other thing to report...the handle decided to break off my regular sized pot, do'h! Now I need to find a new one, but should I splash out and buy a new set of pots? Or just replace that one? Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.

And now I shall be off!

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.

11:18pm: Yep! I finally got around to going ice skating today! Although they've apparently changed the session times again, luckily I still got my hour - well 50 minutes - but I'll have to keep an eye on that. I think maybe it's changed because they're having ice hockey matches at the rink now, indeed, the teams were there getting ready. They were kicking a soccer ball around outside to warm up, just like Plushy does, which made me LOL.

I also had some awesome luck when I went to the Jay Jays at the shopping centre...the had the white Pusheen t-shirt! And the beanie! Sweeeet! They only had large and extra large t-shirts left, so I got the large, which is a bit long on the arms - because it's actually a long sleeved shirt, rather than a t-shirt. Not a lot I can do about that though because the shirts don't show up on the shops website anymore. I suppose I could go hunting for a medium shirt in another Jay Jays - I think there's one in Chatswood, but I don't feel like driving all over. Also I've all ready worn the large sized one and got some chocolate on it. I can't be trusted with chocolate, I tells you. Also, oversized stuff is in these days, right? :OP

So yes, ice skating! That was fun as always! There were a lot of people with their own skates there today, which was interesting, I wonder if they've all been watching the SBS figure skating highlights too! :O)

Although, I think my skates might need sharpening soon, I didn't move as smoothily as I have been previously...only downside to all that is going to the skate shop takes aaaages. Maybe I should avail myself of the skate sharpening service at the ice rink - although it's not actually on site, you have to leave your skates there and collect them at a later date. Not sure if I want them out of my sight for that long. :OP

Anywaaay, moving along, I have to keep this entry short (again) because tomorrow is Mother's Day and the maternal side of the family is having a get-together at my Uncle Sam's place, which means I can't lounge in bed in the morning.

Not a lot to report, although my feet were sore from work today, I think it might have been my toenails - which I trimmed when I got home - at least I hope so because otherwise that means my podiatrist-designed shoes are not super comfy! At least they were only twenty bucks!

I actually did stop at the clearance shop that's on the way to the ice rink which sells Homey-Peds (which is a brand of shoe for the comfort-seeking shoe wearing), I was hoping I could get a new pair of the shoes I use to have - they were nice! - but alas no luck there.

I also remembered to buy new fish food, turns out the weird bugs in my old canister of food are weevils! Because one of the ingredients is flour. Gross. I'll have to keep an eye on the new canister too, because it has flour in it as well.

I'm also relieved that despite the weevils, Fishenko seems none the worse for wear from the flakes. He's swimming around his tank right now actually.

On that note, I better haul butt, I need to sponge my new Pusheen shirt, damn chocolate bits and then get myself to sleep.

10:17pm: Well, I've finally heard back from the Office of State Revenue regarding the ticket I got for driving unregistered and they basically told me "Tough shit, pay up".

Fuck me...$650 down the drain. That's basically the cost of flying to Japan, seeing Plushy at a show (in a good seat no less!) and the flight back!

Not to mention like three weeks worth of savings for the apartment stamp duty and two and a half weeks rent. So yeah this is money I can totally spare.

They really need to put this shit on a sliding scale, because this a HUGE amount of money for me, whereas for someone else it'd be a bit of an inconvenience...I get that it's supposed to be a fine and everything, but they could be reasonable. :O/

The one saving grace of this whole mess is that at least the cop was nice enough not to give me a fine for being uninsured as well, otherwise I'd be looking at having to pay over $1000!!!

Fucking sucks.

In other news I'm feeling a bit glum because I've just discovered that one of my Tumblr friends now hates Yuri on Ice aka the figure skating anime. And now I'm a bit uncomfortable because I still love it and repost lots of fan-art of it on my Tumblr...I kind of want to say something to her over Twitter about it, but I have no idea what to say. I mean...I hope she doesn't look down on me for still liking it, but I don't even know? Plus she seems to have like valid reasons for not liking it...so now I'm questioning my own taste? But I don't know.

Well, we both still like birds and Plushy so I should stop being so dramatic, perhaps. :OP

And then there's been a huge blow-out in the real life figure skating fandom, which has caused a mass exodus of fans of a particular skater from the forum I visit every day. Man, I've never been involved in a fandom breakdown before. Not a pretty sight, let me tell you. It didn't involve Plushy though! (Although...I am reminded how I find out ages after the fact how the original Plushy fandom kind of imploded way back in 2006 when some of his original fans decided to be jerkasses and ended up hating the very person they once idolised! It was total BS...and way worse since you know, they were is actual "fans" rather than haters).

That was an unnecessary ramble there...

On the upside, I got my flu shot today! My arm is a bit sore, but the doctor was very nice and when I told him I was a disability worker arranged for me to get the shot for free! Also, I got my new script for my anti-depressant, except...they always give you five repeats...so I'm not going to need one when I go and see my psychiatrist later, which will no doubt cause all sorts of confusion.

Anyway, I better be off now, since I got up earlier than usual today. Poor Mrs S though, the bathroom issue at her house has caused a lot of trouble, the original builders of the place seem to not want to take responsibilty for screwing up with construction of the bathroom.

I sure hope that sort of shit doesn't happen in my apartment when (if?) it finally happens?

So yes, on that note, goodnight!

11:56pm: Because in typical Moose fashion I made a mistake and my friend's house warming isn't until next week! Boy I feel like a dope! Especially since I made all those cupcakes...now what am I supposed to do with them? Besides eat thme of course....Good thing I went to the gym this afternoon I guess! :OP

On the plus side I did get to watch The World Team Trophy, which was super awesome! I love watching figure skating live, shame I never did it when Plushy was around. Boooo! Although he does have a show in Italy next week, perhaps they'll televise it! That'd be cool.

In other news, I managed to be fifteen minutes late to work today, on a day that the second-in-charge is on shift, of course. Argh damnit, why do I fail at life like that! She warned me that the Overall Library Manager is looking to make cuts so I better be careful. Cripes that's comforting isn't it. :OP

Right, I better be off.

Goodnight all!

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).

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11:55pm: I'm talking to myself because I've managed to totally procrastinate aaaall day and even though I did manage to finish my Easter Egg buying, I didn't go ice skating nor did I leave enough time to make a substantial entry.

In fact I should all ready be asleep because tomorrow is Easter and the parentals and I are going to 8am Mass.

But I always feel bad if I don't update daily, I feel like I'll get into a bad habit and start neglecting this thing.

Anywho, not much to report, although as it turned out Mum had recorded the figure skating highlights on SBS so tonight after watching our house shows we watched some of it.

Not sure what she made of it, though! I did point out that we will be seeing the Aussie skater at the ice show next week, so that's neat. Although I was most disappointed when I saw that they didn't show any of the men's short programs in the highlights! There were a few of them I really wanted to see and now I'm left wondering if that weird Japanese TV company has stopped their embargo of figure skating videos YouTube, seriously they'd block any footage, even stuff that wasn't from their own channel. Is that even legal I ask?

On that note though I better head off, like I said it's up early tomorrow and it's also going to be a busy day.

Goodnight all!
