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!

11:25pm: Nope, not at all...I stayed up too late last night like a dumbass and also the night before...so yeah, I'm very sleepy, which sucks because the Fed-Ex is playing his Semi-Final tonight and I can't watch it because it's the second one and the first one is definitely going to go to four sets. Balls :OP

I did a least get to see a shot of the Fed-Ex hanging at the Player's Restaurant watching the action. LOL, he's cool as a cucumber. But seriously, I can't believe I've hardly seen any Wimbledon this year?! I don't remember it being such a problem previously? Although I have noticed they don't seem to be reshowing games in the day time...it's probably all on the internet now, bah!

I'm also feeling pretty bummed about Le Tour, I can't get into it without Phil Liggett, it's just not the same! I wonder is he gone from commentating races all together? Is it all just interviews now? Which incidentally I never see on SBS even when I tune into the start of the coverage!

I'm also struggling a bit with my story...I'm tossing up between skipping this particular event all together, it's technically not that important to the plot and can be referred back to in later chapters or whatever. Decisions, decisions. Maybe I should skip it and see how it goes, LOL, guess my Tumblr friend was right about not posting until you've finished writing the story.

Oh yeah! That reminds me, yesterday after finishing work at the Mona Vale Library before heading for my volunteering I bought a lined notepad and put it in my Bamboo Spark and got around to trying it out. And it worked! Hooray! I was a bit worried because the pad has 90 sheets and the manual recommended only 50. So I'm hoping that'll be useful for my writing.

But anyway, I have to be off since like I said I underslept and it bit me in the butt, starting from this morning when I woke up turned my alarm off and fell back to sleep for another half hour! I was a bit late to Mrs S's which I've been doing a lot lately, stop backsliding me!

Also my tiredness led to me skipping the gym this afternoon, sigh. I expect better from me, LOL.

So yes, I bid you all 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!

Cemented

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!

11:24pm: 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

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.

Goodnight all!

11:28pm: Pinstriped pants that is...in my size. Today Mum and I had to meet with Dad at the solicitor's office to sign a document cancelling the contract for the apartment we originally were going to buy and I decided to take a look in the two second hand clothes shops in the shopping area there.

And there were pinstriped pants there! Like five or six of them and none of them were my size! Well fuck, how bloody annoying! Once again I ask, where have all the pinstripes goooone?

Moving on...more news on the job front, some new library technician positions have popped up! Hooray! They're full-time and don't seem to be temporary so I definitely have to apply for those. There's also some other jobs I can apply for although once again I'm being a lazy butt here. I tell you, after years of job searching you just end up being fucking over it. But! I need to get my head in the game.

What else? Well, I realised that I left Mrs S's hair turban (you know those things you use to put up your wet hair after you wash it) outside! Aaaaaah, I felt like I was forgetting something when I left and sure enough I did. She's gonna tell me off for that :OP

Yaaawn, I didn't get enough sleep last night because I'm a dumbass, and it bit me on the butt this morning when my alarm went off, because I stopped it, shut my eyes and then opened them again twenty minutes later! Cripes! I ended up being late to work! Which was not good because Mrs S had an appointment in the city and thus had to get a move on.

Speaking of which, I have an appointment with the podiatrist myself tomorrow, which ties into the above and means I need to get my butt to bed. Plus, my brain is losing its ability to think.

So yeah gotta sleep.

11:14pm: From a young Australian tourist who went to Colombia, bought what she believed were sets of headphones from someone she met there and apparently didn't find it weird that they were given to her in black plastic bin bags secured with sticky tape.

To no-one's surprise (I'm sure) it turned out that each of these 18 packages contained not just headphones, but cocaine.

Now, it's possible that's just a really bad cover story and she did know, but if not I have no idea how anyone couldn't have been suspicious of something wrapped like that, it's the international symbol of "DRUGS ARE IN HERE"

Yaaawn, well I let myself get distracted and now it's on twenty minutes to midnight and I didn't get nearly enough zzzzs last night! Which might have explained why my digestive system was still being an ass. However, that might have had something to do with having to do the Year 2 Scripture Class by myself today! Fortunately, Mum gave me instructions on what to do and it went quite well, nice kids (with a few naughty ones, but none really bad) but still kind of nerve-wracking! I kept forgetting what to say and "um-ing and ah-ing" the whole way through. The career of a teacher is so not for me! :OP

However, I totally need to find myself some more hours...Dad and I met Mum at the office to sign the contract for the other studio apartment - the last one in fact! - and whilst the due date for the stamp duty resets itself (thank God because I had to pay that $650 fine today!) I'll need to be actually employed full-time (or equivalent hours) to be able to live there!

There is a part-time receptionist job that looks interesting, mostly afternoons, but it also seems to want someone who can fill-in when others are on annual leave or whatever - which depending on the day would be difficult...Plus there's one full-day on Friday - but Mrs S did say that if it was just one day I could change one of my three days so I could do that. Although...she did seem to forget that this morning when I spoke to her about it so I was bit worried :OP

But yes, let's not get ahead of oneself - I haven't even applied, LOL!

That in mind though, I'll need my wits about it, so now I shall be off to bed!

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!

11:25pm: Damnit, despite having cleaned the kitchen sink and whatnot any time I leave something out that's not completely rinsed and cleaned off a hoard of motherfucking ants invades! Now I guess this just means I should clean everything up, but I did rinse it pretty well...and my dishwasher was full so I couldn't put the saucepan in there.

Also, I'm most annoyed by the fact my ant baits don't seem to be working. Although...maybe they've just run out of...er...poison stuff, I think they only last for three months and I've had them for longer than that. Or maybe I should try and get the spray...

Except, I haven't got my card yet, so right now I only have fifteen bucks or so to my name at least until the bank card arrives or I go to the bank to withdraw cash. Except, I don't think I'd be able to get to said bank, it is open on Saturdays' but I'm pretty sure if closes before I finish work.

Anyway, I'm sure you don't really care about ants...but I don't have much more to say...except I made a bit of a mistake today when I was doing the laundry - I forgot about my car key in my pocket so it went through the machine! No wonder there was so much noise! I think the key has survived, the little light on it still goes off when I press the buttons. Also, I have just remembered that unlike my mother's car key I can still use this one like an actual key so even if it is dead or the battery is screwed up I can still get in my car to drive to work tomorrow!

Speaking of which, I've totally stayed up too late this week which is really no good for me, so I should actually get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight! And this time I still have to finish up on my Russian before I turn in! So...

Goodnight all!

8:39pm: Wow, it's been forever, hasn't it?! My plan to update on Sunday 12th before the ship left port never eventuated! And even though I did get the wireless internet package for the last two days of the trip I was on my phone so I didn't update then either!

Anyway, there's so much to report! So many photos have been taken! I'm not sure if I need to actually upload them or what because I think they might be on my Google drive...Goes and checks...

Hey, it is! Nice. Although they don't all seem to be there, I'll give it another go, and perhaps I can link to them. Because uploading them one by one will take aaages. Although I'm trying to upload some now and they don't see to be going? That's weird how some do and some won't.

The First Three Days )

But, there's way too much to talk about in just one entry! But I have to say...in typical Moose style after being unsure about the whole cruising business I was so sad to leave the ship this morning! Sad enough that I cried on and off throughout the day - which as you all know is never a good idea for me...suffice to say I'm tired with a bit of a headache right now.

Also, I kind of hoped to stay over at my parents place - even though I don't actually have proper clothes for Mrs S tomorrow - because of course now that I'm off the ship I'm feeling kind of dizzy! - but Mum insisted I come back here to the Granny Flat. And when I did after dinner I discovered...that my fridge door had somehow being left ajar! FUUUUUCK! I knew the watermelon and lettuce I'd left were going to be pretty much gone when I got back, but without the benefit of cooling it was putrid in there. Fuuuuck. Not a fun homecoming and I don't even have cold water for my trouble! Sigh! And then I found that the fish in my freezer had defrosted as well! (Although the ice cream is still fine, so...good news there I suppose)

Anywho, I better go since despite generally getting more than enough sleep on the ship I didn't last night so I need to get to bed sooner rather than later.

Wish me luck tomorrow settling back into real life!

11:58pm: And I totally meant to go to bed early because I was so sleepy today! In fact, it ended up been a rather dangerous as I almost drifted off when driving back from my psychiatrist appointment! Like I ended up drifting out of my lane a bit! O.o Obviously I should have pulled over before that and rested up or something.

As it was I ended up taking a nap before heading off to the gym.

Yeah, I have no idea why I was so sleepy, maybe it was how bad the traffic was this morning! I ended up being fifteen minutes late to the appointment. Not only was the traffic terrible, I kept getting all the red lights, seriously? What the Hell? How does life always know?! :OP

But the traffic really was bad, bad enough that it made it onto the news! Having said that, it was on the other side of the bridge, but Sydney traffic does tend to have a domino affect. So it was a good thing Mum didn't come over this afternoon because I wouldn't have got back until 2pm and then as I said I was tired as Hell.

Anyway, I better head off, and chalk this up to another case of short entry syndrome. But, I did send in my application for the job although I didn't get a chance to speak to the contact person...sometimes she comes in on weekends though so maybe I'll see her then.

Right, I'm off to bed now, goodnight all!

11:54pm: Indeed it is, especially since I once again misjudged when I should have gone to sleep last night and thus only got about seven hours worth!

On the plus side it's one of my days off tomorrow so I should be able to catch up tonight. Although I'm here at the parental units' place (the little bro did indeed come over for dinner which was good and yummy!) and I can never be sure when Mum and Dad might wake me up. :OP Although...

Not much else to report, except I'm still having weird pains in the abdominal area, like little cramps or something. Very rude.

I did discover something though! Just Jeans does still have 3/4 length pants they just happened to be folded up on a stand with other full-length jeans rather than hanging up as they were before. They're also slightly different with two buttons rather than one. They were having a two for $109 sale so I decided to get a pair in white as well as regular dark jeans. Niice.

So ahem, better be off now, sorry for the lack of entry.

11:57pm: Yes indeedy! And we're watching International House Hunters together! And she also bought me a present of sorts. She managed to forget to back her toothbrush and what not so needed to buy another one and she saw a Garfield one in green!

So, she bought it and gave it to me, sweeet! Although I probably won't end up using it as I'm set for toothbrushes.

I also spent this evening watching the mens and womens free programs at the Cup of China - which was full of thrills and spills, but I'm pleased to say there was no bad mouthing of Plushy (there was only one British Eurosport guy commentating today though so I guess it would have been weird to bitch to himself, also the other skater did OK in his program so there wasn't really any point in bitching) but more excitingly my favourite ladies skater and one of my favourite men got bronze medals! Hooray!

Although seeing as I'm here at the parental house I'm not sure I should have watched the live stream, I sure hope I didn't eat up all their bandwidth!

Also I'm very happy to report I found my lunchbox! It turned out there was a cupboard in the library kitchen I hadn't noticed before, there were lots of empty containers in it and one of them was my lunchbox! Oh thank goodness, I was feeling quite bummed about that.

Anyway, I better wrap this up and hit the hay, I didn't get nearly enough sleep last night and also had the unpleasant experience of being woken up by heartburn and reflux, yuk. But hopefully things will go better tonight!

10:54pm: Yes! As I'm sure you can guess from my subject heading I'm at M and Grandpa's house and this afternoon M and I played Canasta.

And I was sooooo close to winning! But alas, M pipped me at the post! LOL, M is always so relieved when she wins! Like she didn't used to beat me constantly for fifteen years. :OP Ah well, I have a chance for revenge tomorrow, which means I gotta keep this update short.

Not that I've got much to say, I did finally get around to changing some of the water in Plushenko the fish's tank. Only problem is the siphon pump thing I got turned out to be too big for my tank and thus didn't work! This is no good because I had to completely wreck the packaging to get it out and I'm pretty sure I didn't save the receipt for it so how am I going to return it? I'm not even sure if I can exchange it because I'm pretty sure it's the smallest one they had. Dang...

But Plushenko seems happy and that's the important thing, I was rather worried that in trying to get the siphon to work I might have startled him too much. But when I left for Scripture class this afternoon he was swimming about happily.

And OMG Scripture class was a shock! First of all I ended up running late because I washed my hair before going and managed to fall down on my time-keeping and second of all when I got there...the teacher who's supposed to be taking the class wasn't there! And she wasn't late...she just...wasn't there! I guess she must have been sick or something, but I had no idea and no way to contact her.

So I ended up taking the class! Fortunately, the actual teacher provided some assistance in keeping the class calm and all that jazz, but what do I know about teaching scripture and talking to children?! I did my best and I guess it wasn't too bad. I'm not sure if they quite got the idea of giving the gifts of love, joy and peace, but eh, those are kind of difficult concepts anyway. Although all this reminds me I need to tell Mum what happened but I need to go to bed now so that'll have to wait until tomorrow, I guess.

Still no luck locating my lunchbox, I checked the car again, but no sign of it and I'm quite certain I didn't leave it at my parents' house. Sniff, that bums me out.

Right, better be off now, I didn't get anywhere near the proper amount of sleep last night and if I don't get at least 8 hours tonight I'll regret it I'm sure.

I don't have my external drive plugged in right now so I'll have to give the Sims Thing a miss for this entry (I know, shocking!)

10:04pm: Even though Australia's like 13 hours ahead I still felt the need to begin updating this entry at this historic time to celebrate the temporal conjunction point of the entire universe...aka November 12th. :OP

Not that anything particularly momentous happened today, except that it's super hot today and it's almost that time of the month which I'm sure is the reason I got such a nasty headache this afternoon. I took some paracetamol for it when I got home from work (I forewent ice skating today unfortunately) and it didn't do shit! Very annoying because I had to wait for a few hours before taking some Nurofen, although considering they've put out these new paracetamol/nurofen tablets on the market maybe I didn't? Although I wasn't actually sure I had any nurofen, but lucky for me, I did and now my poor head feels much better.

Anywho, moving on, still loving the new laptop! I notice that the keyboard is the sort where food can't get in between the keys, which is a relief because as one of those terrible people who eat while typing so now I don't have to worry about the keys getting stuck! Or maybe I could just stop eating over my keyboard, LOL. :OP

What else to report, well, I've made the cupcakes for Mrs S's party tomorrow. I hope they like them. I shall make the frosting tomorrow morning and then frost the cupcakes last thing, otherwise it tends to harden up too much, at least that's what I've found.

Note to self, I need to ask Mrs S if I can borrow her copy of Microsoft Office because I didn't realise this, but it wasn't actually included with my laptop, do'h! And no way am I forking out for the new Office it costs almost as much as the laptop to get it! Geeze, I just need Word and Excel I'm not asking for a lot. (I suppose I could get one of those free office programs, but I don't feel like it, so I won't. :OP)

Finally, before I get to the Memes...I've forgotten what I was going to type! Because of the headache I've been left super sleepy and rather ditzy. Um...oh! My new sandals...I'm somewhat uncertain about them because I kind of forgot that I can't wear superflat shoes without my orthodics in them because my feet end up hurting. Hopefully, I'll be able to wear them then, because the shoes do seem a little loose, but the next size down was too tight so...

OK, so Memes...man I've let them go for so long I have no idea what the last one I did! It seems it was from July so...

Away We Goooo! )

OK, that's the Saturday 9 for July done! And now, my eyelids are drooping so I'm gonna turn in. I don't think I've been getting enough sleep this week and it's finally hitting me.

So goodnight!

10:29pm: Well I'm sure you can see where this entry is going...my new fish tank seems to be cursed - despite the fact it doesn't seem to be all that different from the old one, where my father kept his Siamese Fighting Fish.

However, today after seemingly getting a great start I got up to find poor Nedshenko lying motionless on the bottom of the tank. D: I held out some hope he might just be sleeping, since they actually do sleep like that and his fins didn't look like Nedshenko the 2nds. However, after I got home this evening it was clear he was gone :O(

The only thing I can think of is that the water is too cold, I actually noticed that this morning, so left for work a bit early to go to a pet shop in Mona Vale so I could buy a heater. I stopped by home on my way to church - since I had to get some food from Aldi that needed to be put in the fridge - and put it in the tank which was noticably warming when I got home. Too bad there was no Nedshenko in there to enjoy it!

Question is...should I by another fish? Or should I admit defeat and return the heater and just use the fake plastic fish that came with the aquarium? Or maybe I should get a different kind of fish? Although, I can't think of one that will be beautiful and green like a Siamese Fighting Fish would be. Or maybe I should take the aquarium to the pet shop and see what they recommend, perhaps the tank is just too small? Except that doesn't explain how Dad kept his fish in the other smaller tank for so long. Perhaps it's the lack of sunlight in here, I mean it's not as dark as a cave or something, but there's no big windows.

Sniff, poor Nedshenko the III, I barely knew ye!

Sigh, I guess I'll try and catch up on some Memes, although I really need to get to bed because I stayed up waaay too late yesterday.

I don't even remember where I left off! )

Well, that took longer than I planned...I did spend like five minutes folding my clothes so that didn't help :OP

Now though, I must bid you all goodnight!

11:06pm: I'm talking about swimming in the Paralymics, which I'm watching right now. I've been a bit confused since in just about ever race there's people with a wide-range of disabilities. At first I thought they were racing against different times or something, but as the commentators just explained, it has to do with how well the person can swim in the water. So sometimes the swimmer with no legs can be competitive against the swimmer with cerebal palsy.

Anyway, once again I can't believe how fast time has passed! It seems like it was only 10:30 a few minutes ago, but nope, here I am looking at 11pm. Which alas means I'll have to keep this entry rather short because the past few days I haven't got nearly enough sleep and that's gonna bite me in the butt.

I had some bad news today though in the form of my new fish, I must have done something wrong when I put him in his tank because this morning he was at the bottom of it...dead! D: I only got him on Tuesday! Makes me feel like a terrible owner! Poor Nedshenko! I have to confess I did briefly consider taking him back to the Pet shop or a refund, but unsurprisingly there's no returns. I went to the other pet shop - The Pet Barn after finishing my volunteering at the library today and bought another one, along with this stuff you can put in your tank to make sure there's not too much ammonia or whatever. I also found out that you're not meant to put the water that the fish came in into the tank as well. Damn...poor Nedshenko II.

I also forgot that the people with visual impairments usually have a guide for their events, so not only do you have to be a good runner yourself you need to find someone who can keep up with you! Which leads to the question to the guides get a medal too? Or are they more like horses at the equestrian and they get a little plaque or something?

And fun fact, the Kenyans also dominate the running for the visually impaired, although there's a Brazilian here so the ground is really getting into it. Goooo, Brazil!

Also, the guides have advertisements on their shirts, I guess they don't have the same rules, since there's nowhere near as much funding.

Come oooon, Brazil! There's only one lap to go, but the Kenyans are right behind him, gulp! Annnd one of the Kenyan' storms home like a boss, but the Brazilian guy gets a silver and that's pretty cool :O) Although it would have been nice if Brazil could have got the first gold of the games.

Right, I gotta go, so I guess it'll be a mystery for now as to what happens with the guides and medals. :OP

Tomorrow is set to be a busy day with my pyschiatrist appoint and work at the library, wish me luck!

Goodnight!

10:35pm: Well, I still haven't heard back from the real estate agent re: setting up a meeting with the landlord to discuss the no-internet issue, I tried to call up about it, but today is Wednesday which is the big day for real estate agents to show properties around and stuff and thus she didn't answer her phone. I'll have to give it another go tomorrow.

In other news, my eyeballs feel really dry and gritty, not sure if I got dust in them or something, or if it's tiredness, I didn't actually get the best sleep last night, first off I went to bed a bit late and secondly I woke up later on in the night and it took me a while to nod back off again. Also I'm yawning a lot, so I should get myself to bed.

What else do I have to report? Well, I am missing not been able to update every day! And I was quite disappointed when I went over to Newtown with Mum (to pick up the Foxtel Box and drop off some paint) and I looked in the Box Thing. I was hoping to get some stuff out of there, but there's quite a lot of stuff in there and there wasn't enough time to go through it. Man, I gotta get round to that, I should probably do my best to throw things out...Mum said she'll let me know next time there's a meeting over there (she's still on the Executive Committee), so I'll time to check it out then. No idea when that'll be though.

Anyway, I'm here at the parental home seeing as my mobile data plan doesn't start over again until tomorrow and I was getting pretty close to being 4Gb over which would equal $50 on top of my usual bill! Or maybe it's $45, I'm not entirely sure how it's calculated, but either way it's expensive!

Right, it's almost 11 now so I best be off, although now I've set the hotspot to 'metered downloads' I should be able to be online a bit more and hopefully this whole lack of a phone line thing will be sorted out soon!

Goodnight all!

10:52pm: Next Thursday the 11th, which apparently requires me to be at home so the technician can make sure the ADSL+2 can be connected. Which seems unnecessary since I know the line works because the previous tenant used it! Also in typical phone company style I have to be at home in case the technician needs to actually come into the granny flat between 1pm and 5pm. Hmpf, like I didn't have anything else to do! I'm going to have to rearrange my volunteering at the library.

Anywho! It was an interesting day as I finished up half an hour earlier at Mrs S's I was able to get to Macquarie Ice Rink for ice skating! Yay! Of course I had a bit of a scare when I realised I'd forgotten to bring my leggings, fortunately I was wearing my work pants which unlike jeans are easy to manuvoeer in so I just kept them on instead (although now I have to figure out where my leggings are...dang.

Anyway, it was lots of fun been out on the ice, especially since it was so nice and smooth since there wasn't a lot of people at the rink, it being lunchtime on a weekday and it's not school holidays. Although, I did have to pay the $20 flat fee, which is a bit of a pain, but since I haven't gone skating in almost a month I figured it was worth it.

After I the session ended I did a bit of shopping, although I didn't actually buy anything, I was hoping to get some cutlery - as I've mentioned my current set is starting to break because it was a cheap and cheerful purchase - but I couldn't find any that wasn't a) outrageously expensive and/or b) having way too many pieces - we're talking 56 piece cutlery sets! o.O I only need 16 ie four person...or maybe 24. But yeah 56 is way too much.

I even popped by the Belrose Supercentre on my way home hoping they'd have a shop in there that might cater to my needs, but alas no. And I've just realised I should have bought another watermelon cushion for my dining chair from Lincraft. Damn, it totally slipped my mind because I was having abdominal pain and just wanted to get my person home. Ah well.

Right, I should probably wrap this up because I didn't get anywhere near enough sleep last night, not only did I got to bed too late I got the shock of my life when just as I was near to drifting off the fire alarm went off briefly. I practically jumped out of bed! But there was no smoke or fire... I have to assume the battery is flat...although I thought they usually chirp before that happens, but there hasn't been a peep from it since last night. Plus looking up at it just now the light on it has flashed...so maybe it is still alive.

Well, Mum will be coming over, so she can help me take a look at it and perhaps get the landlord to come over...because I don't have an actual ladder here.

Okedoke, off to do my Russian and then hit the hay!

Goodnight all!
