11:57pm: Well, clearly I left this update waaay too late, but I've been reading and procrastinating on my fanfic (OMG, me, get with the program!)

One thing I didn't procrastinate on at least was washing my car! Yes, the landlords have gone on holiday and while they're away I'm able to park in the driveway, which means I was finally able to use the garden hose. The only downside is I'm not entirely sure I cleaned the roof well enough, I should have got my step-stool (damn, my short self LOL) right from the start. Well, you live, you learn.

I also didn't procrastinate on going to the gym after Scripture Class today, yaay! The gym sure is busy on Wednesday afternoons. I guess people want to fight the mid-week slump.

In other news, Mrs S's mother henceforth known as Mama S arrived on Monday evening and I got to see her this morning. She's a really cool lady - over 90 and still active! Also, she bought me a present, which I totally need to get a photo of because it's sooo super adorable! It's a llama toy! Seriously, it's just too cute, I love it. I have christened it Fluffshenko, LOL.

Not much else to report, although the person who's taken over the Scripture class from Mum would appreciate my help (there are a lot of kids) so I guess I'll keep that up for a while.

For now, I better wrap this up and get my butt to bed! I got work and library volunteering tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

11:19pm: Actually, I don't feel that tired, but brain feels totally drained due to a lack of sleep last night. I got to the best part of the third book in the Shades of Magic series and just had to finish it! Which meant I didn't get to sleep until 1am. Which meant I only got 6 hours worth of zzzs last night.

I'm probably being a bit dramatic to be honest, but if I don't get a decent night's sleep tonight I'll be screwed, one night I can manage, but two, heck no! :OP

Anyway, it as a Hell of a good read, so I don't regret it too much, what I do regret is not writing on my fic! I've stalled quite a bit on it, although I think I've figured out how to move forward. LOL time skips are so hard, no wonder my stories end up being so long! But yeah it's a good thing I'm writing the story first before posting up anything, very good advice from my online friend - who I haven't heard from in quite a while now :O( - I hope she's OK!

So yeah, what else to report? Ummm, not a lot. I got an unexpected call yesterday morning from the library asking me if I could do the morning shift, so I had to rearrange my day, but I still got to M and Grandpa's yaaay! :O) Grandpa cooked a delicious lunch and there was sticky date pudding for dessert!

The only thing that didn't go to plan is that M and I didn't manage to finish our game of Canasta, but on the other hand this is even more an incentive for me to go over for another visit - that and the fact I've left some clothes in the garage (at least that's the only place I can think it could be).

Of course, this also meant no ice skating, but what can you do? I did end up calling the Macquarie Centre Jays-Jays and they've nicely put aside the last Cupcake Pusheen beanie for me to get when I come in on Saturday. Niiice.

On that note I should wrap this up because like I said zzzs are needed and tomorrow's going to be a busy day with a library shift in the morning and volunteering in the afternoon! On the plus side I did get to the gym this afternoon after Scripture Class, so phew!

So, for now, goodnight all!

11:26pm I feel I should update since I don't yesterday, but I'm not sure if I have anything to say.

Oh wait, I do, namely I got through a bit of writer's block with my story, whoo go me.

I also helped Mrs S with setting up her security camera, it took a call to Telstra to get it going, but it all came good in the end.

Also, I dare to hope that my lower abdomen issues may have cleared up, I felt pretty ick this morning,I almost didn't want to show up for the Scripture class, but I did and I even went to the gym after. Yaay go me.

Aside from that not much else and I'm watching something on my laptop so I'm actually updating this on my phone so yeah.

Better be off now, goodnight everyone!
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!

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

Guess I'll have to wait for next week.

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

For now, I bid you all goodnight!

10:53pm: To always wear our seatbelt, because some petty crook just got himself killed because he crashed his car, wasn't wearing his and ended up going through the windshield. I still don't get how you can drive without a seatbelt on, how do you not slide off the seat when you have to break suddenly?

Moving on from automobile safety or lack thereof, I discovered that I didn't have work today after all, fortunately I realised this before I went there. Although I should have gone to Mona Vale today to buy a new heater for the fish tank, when I got home from Mum and Dad's this morning I discovered the temperature on the fish tank was reading well under 19 degrees. Fishenko's still swimming about, but I do worry about him.

I didn't get a chance to go shopping at all today, though I meant to after going to the gym this afternoon, however I oh so unhelpfully forgot to bring my backpack with me and thus didn't have my wallet. Do'h fail. Oh well, at least still had my homemade pizza left so I had something for dinner at least. However...I don't actually have anything for breakfast tomorrow, I discovered when I got home that my milk went off several days ago (maybe that's why I've had stomach pain the last few days...) and yeah it was getting quite cold when I got home from the gym so I didn't go down to the service station to get it.

Ugh, crap I'm trying to do my Russian but there's a phrase I'm really stuck on...and I'm running out of time, I need to get to sleep soon because I have to get to work with Mrs S fifteen minutes earlier than usual tomorrow so that means getting up earlier.

So yeah, I gotta wrap this up, LOL story of my life. :OP

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

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

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

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

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

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

Right, off I go! Goodnight all!

11:41pm: 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!

11:30pm: So, before I headed off to the gym I decided to go outside and take a look for anything that might have caused the broken bathroom window and would you believe...I found it! A golf ball in the grass very close to the bathroom window. Which means the neighbours behind my granny flat were fooling around and hit a golf ball hard enough to smash my window!

The thing is? Why the heck did they not come over and speak to the landlord? They broke a window! Fucking rude as Hell, man. You can't just break shit and not tell anyone.

Of course, I'm not about to head over there and confront them...I did plan to call Mum to find out what she thought I should I do, but I never got around to doing that. And I still haven't cleaned my house! I totally have to do that...I always say that. I so fail.

Especially considering that I didn't even do that much today, in fact I basically did nothing until I went out to the gym. In fact I probably should have done something with myself because I was feeling kind of down in the dumps today, I'm pretty sure I forgot to take my medication which might explain some of that. Still sucked though.

Well, things will be returning to normal soon though because Mrs S's surgery went well and she'll be back home from the hospital tomorrow afternoon! Which means I'll need to go over to help her unpack and then on Friday I'll be back to work as normal. Which is good news, if I don't have work to do I tend to vegetate here in my house too much.

I'm also cheered up by the fact Plushy is apparently planning some sheninigans - his first foray into coaching is apparently going to involve the 2014 Ladies Gold medalist, LOL, Plushy you crazy. Something to keep me interested in competitive skating since he's not coming back himself.

Anyway, I better wrap this up now, midnight is coming and I need to clean the Hell out of this place tomorrow before Mum comes over to check it out!

10:26pm: Yep! The World's continues with the Men's Short Program! (Also the Pairs Free Skate, but that's on way too late for me to watch, in fact I think all the Free Programs will be on too late, which suuuuuucks)

The Australian, Brendan Kerry is next up so I'll have to make this another quick update. It's very exciting, he's been doing so well this year, I'm hoping he'll do really well. The competitions been pretty exciting so far, lots of different music, some of it pretty funny!

Anyway, like I said I have to make this quick, not a lot to report today, except it rained and rained hard! After it was so nice yesterday! I left my towel and swimsuit on the line so they were soaked through, I brought them in, but they're still wet...

There was also a Hell of a downpour while I was driving up to the gym, yikes! Fortunately it didn't get as heavy as that at any other time like when I was driving to my shift at the library, because that would have been scary!

I managed to get to the library, but I stepped in a puddle and got my socks all wet which meant I had to take them off, like that didn't suck or anything. Also, we thought perhaps it would be a quiet shift, with the rain keeping everyone away, but nope!

Interjection: Brendan Kerry is skating like a boooooosss! Come on, you can do this and qualify for the Free Skate!

And he has, wooooohooo!

Right, yes, as I was saying we though it was going to be quiet at the library, but nope, everyone decided to bring their kids in after school so it actually became a bit of a madhouse for a while! Fortunately people left in good time so we were able to leave and the rain wasn't too bad.

I did notice that my umbrella (the old one, I still haven't got my little one back from my friend) has little holes in it though, which is not very helpful! I did consider buying another one, but there wasn't anything available, guess I should have expected that.

But, yes all in all a good day and now I must be off, the rest of the Men beckon!

11:36pm: Well, the southerly change has come through and it's not really that hot anymore, but it was bad enough that even having reconnected my air-con's hose the Granny Flat was still unbearable. The problem was my air-con kept switching itself off giving at warning that it was overheating so I could only use the fan function. And with it being 35 degrees or more that just wasn't good enough - even though I went and bought the mini-desk fan to put on my bedside table (they were on special at Coles) I ended up sweating like Rafa Nadal on a tennis court! (Have I all ready used that analogy? Well, I'm gonna use it again) So I'm back here at the parental abode.

This is probably a good thing though because the interview is tomorrow and I need Mum's help to do my hair (that's a bit sad isn't it, LOL) although I've just remembered that I left my resume folder back at the Granny Flat along with my activity tracker (I took that off before taking my shower after I went to the gym), so I guess I'll have to stop by on my way to Mona Vale tomorrow.

Aside from that I haven't got much more to say, it was just a regular sort of day (that time o' the month has appeared - which means I won't have to worry about it on the cruise which is very good news) except for the heat factor. Man...anyone denying climate change has to be an idiot, which some people clearly are, especially one I had the misfortune of seeing on Four Corners tonight, which my mother watched when she got home. Lucky for me I'd brought over one of my Air Crash Investigation DVDs and was able to watch that instead, because ew.

11:25pm: Apparently today is Stephen Hawking's 75th Birthday! That's pretty amazing, especially when you consider that on receiving his diagnosis all those years ago he was given like 6 months to live or something like that. That's kicking the odds in the face! You go, Professor Hawking!

In other great news, I took my External Harddrive to the computer shop in Collaroy and he was able to take the case apart and put it in a different case with a little attachment thing that works. Hooray! It cost me $50 but this is considerably cheaper than having to do specialist type data retrieval. Plus I don't need to buy a whole new drive to back stuff up to. Yaaay!

And more good news there was a Fast 4 Tennis tournament tonight, it was Australia vs the World and we won! :OP Although we were represented by Nick Kygrios and Bernard Tomic otherwise known as the two biggest jerks in tennis! Although their behaviour was OK this tournament so perhaps they've finally taken up the advice to see sports psychologist. Although I didn't actually watch Kygrios but that's what my friend said over Facebook messenger.

And lastly...a new ep of Air Crash Investigation is on right now, sweeet! Although, I shouldn't stay up too late to watch it all, there's work tomorrow after all.

But before I turn in let's have a Meme

Sunday Stealing

24/09/2016

: The "Doing Questions Like It's 2003" Meme"


1. Tell us about your pets. If you don’t have one, share why you don’t. I have a Siamese Fighting Fish called Plushenko. He's a beautiful teal and black and he lives in a nice 16L tank on my cabinet. I was a bit worried about him when I got home after work today, he seemed a bit listless, but he seems better now. Phew! (My previous four fish died in quick succession, it was rather sad)

2. Name three things that are close to you. Like literally? My mobile phone, a block of Cadbury chocolate and a book about overcoming anxiety issues.

3. How was the weather for your summer? We're still in summer and so far it's been quite warm indeed.

4. What was the last film you saw? Did you like it? It was the new Ghostbusters film at my friend's house and I liked it a lot!

5. Tell us about the last trip that you took. Uh...it was ages ago back at the end of 2014 when I to Bathurst to get my Masters in Information Studies. My parents came along too, although they went a day earlier and I met them in Lithgow after coming in on the train.

6. Where do you buy groceries? Why? Usually from Warriewood Square, especially since an Aldi opened over there. As for why, it's the closest shops to me!

7. Tell us something that you did today. Or will do if you haven’t had your morning coffee yet. I don't drink coffee :OP And today I went to the gym, good times.

8. Have you pulled an all-nighter? Not intentionally, once I couldn't get to sleep at all because I read the prologue of the Jaws novelisation and it scared the Hell outta me!

9. Can you taste the difference between Pepsi & Coke? Don't drink either.

10. Tell us about your siblings. How many and what do they do? I have two brothers, one older and one younger. The eldest lives in Japan with his wife and baby daughter and he works in the legal department of a bank I think? My younger brother lives a few suburbs away, but we don't see him much and he works at a warehouse.

11. What’s the oldest thing that you own? Well, I do have a vest from my mother which she sewed herself back in the 70s, so I'm gonna say that.

And I gotta run now, it's actually past midnight, but I was trying to do my Russian so um, let's just pretend it isn't. :OP (Still Happy Birthday to me! :OD)

10:49pm: Yes! I got it back! Just to discover that Letters & Numbers apparently isn't on anymore. I'm not sure if it's just temporary or what, I should make sure to watch the eps I missed online before they all disappear again.

I'm sure you're all wondering how this came to happen. Well, after finishing up work I decided to go to the Mall, the idea was to ask someone at JB Hi-Fi if they had any solutions to my strange problem. As it turned out, the chap I spoke to was as confused as me, he'd never heard of such a thing! The only thing he could think of was the player was old, which I guess made sense. The only suggestion he could give was to get a set-top box or a new Blu-Ray/Tuner combo player. The latter though, costs over $300 and I didn't really want to pay that. The former seemed to be a bit of overkill, I mean getting a whole set-top box just so I could tune into SBS? And then I'd have to go through all sorts of rigmarole to record anything...

However, when I say one for about forty dollars in Target I figured, "What the Hell" and purchased it, along with some of those small battery operated fairy lights (I want to add some light to my room).

So I get home with the set-top box, set it up and it works great! Obviously, there's nothing wrong with the antenna or the cable. I then headed off to the gym, because I haven't been there in over a week and while I was working out it occurred to me...when I plugged in the set-top box, I unplugged power adaptor for the Christmas Tree, which is quite large and I wondered if perhaps that had had some weird effect on the Blu-Ray player.

Sooo, when I got home, I unplugged the set-top box, plugged the antenna cable back in the Blu-Ray player, rescanned and...all the SBS channels came back!

Which is great! Except now I have to go back to the Mall to return the set-top box, which is a pain.

Also, how the Hell did I not think of doing this before?! And I sure wish I knew why the Christmas Tree's plug caused such a big problem, it's not like there's not a whole bunch of other stuff plugged into that power board. Very annoying.

Anyway! It's been a busy day I must say, I was a little worried about my right foot which was hurting a bit after I finished working, shopping and going to the gym, but it's feeling fine now so I think it'll be OK.

But now I have to hit the hay, my app says I'm not going to bed early enough so I better address that. I know I'm sleepy right now!

So I shall bid you all goodnight!

10:44pm: I've got the photo of my dress that I wore on Sunday! Not through Photobucket that's still acting-up, but here's the link, which will hopefully work! What do you think of the shoes? Like I said 10 bucks from K-Mart.

Moving along, guess who popped in today to pick up something...Mum! Ha, figures. Although, I've been keeping the place pretty tidy so I was able to make it look pretty decent by the time she arrived. I even got to show her my new folding style, it is indeed looking mighty fine. :O)

Anywho as this morning I headed off to the Mall to do some Christmas shopping. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any 60s cocktail music, dang. I tried looking up the flower bloom thing on my mobile, but its battery was running out again plus there's no nursery in the Mall so I wouldn't have been able to get it anyway.

I did get Mrs S's coffee machine, although for some reason they only had red colour ones left, which is weird because the one Mrs S took a photo of was silver, but even when the cashier looked it up in other shops...only red. I still bought even though Mrs S really wanted it in silver, but it's very fancy and looks like it'll be easy to use so....

I did buy my little bro's gift and after some hunting about managed to find a picture book about Australian animals for my niece, but I still need to get something for the big bro, Eri, Mum and Dad. Which has made me realise I have no idea what Eri would even like! I'll have to ask the big bro about that.

After getting home I did some laundry before heading off to the gym and I planned to wash my car, except someone had parked in the spot right outside the house so I couldn't because the hose will only stretch so far. However, as Mum was leaving we found that the car had left so the washing was on!

And of course...not too long after I finished up there was a thunderstorm, grumble, grumble. I have found that generally if you wash your car before it rains the rain doesn't leave spots all over.

After the storm things took a different turn when Mum called to remind me about the contracts for the Newtown parking spot and the studio apartment. I was meant to sign them - one in front of a witness so she can take them to the solicitor some time and that time is tomorrow! So, I ended up going over there for that, the big bro had one of his friends over and she was nice enough to be the witness. I also got to see the niece, she seemed very intrigued by my stripey green shirt and green watch, LOL, perhaps she'll love green too! :O)

Still haven't picked her up, but I did giver her hug and even read The Hungry Caterpillar to her, but I don't think she was all that interested LOL. I love the Caterpillar though. :O)

Ah bugger I'm recording Cold Case but the storms have come back and interfering with the antenna. Damn, hope I have this episode, but I guess it'll come back on.

Right, I better wrap this up, work is on tomorrow so I better not stay up too late.

Goodnight all!

11:42pm: I thought it might have been some weird interference from the anti-virus program I downloaded last night, but now it's still acting slow as molasses even know. So irritating. So I'm still waiting to upload a picture of my outfit from yesterday!

Ahem, moving right along because time is getting away from me and I can't stay up too late tonight because I want to go to the Mall tomorrow first thing before it gets super busy.

Anywho, I had a busy day today, what with work this morning with Mrs S and then off to the gym afterwards, actually I probably shouldn't have been at the gym so long but I was reading something on my phone in between reps, which meant I took more than a minute break in between them, LOL.

After the gym, and buying some milk I came back to the Granny Flat where I meant to put my clothes away but instead got distracted by the internet and watching Murder She Wrote, do'h! Seriously, if Mum decides to come over I'm stuffed.

Oh wait I just remembered I did do something else today and that was finishing the book I was reading called Eligible which is a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice - yeah I know there's like a million of those stories out there, but this one was really good, I loved it! :O) Also it's one of the books on the Adult Summer Reading Bingo from the libraries so I can mark it off.

But yes, despite continually falling behind on the Memes there'll be no time for me to catch up tonight. My bed is calling.

Didn't make contact with the big bro today, but I'm pretty sure he was busy, I'll see about it tomorrow - as well as calling my friend, because seriously I'm sure she still doesn't know that our other friend is in town!

Lastly, I think I know what's wrong with Photobucket, it's security certificate has expired...I don't know how long it'll take to fix that...I'll have to figure out what to do with my photo tomorrow.

For now, goodnight!

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!

11:15pm: The Australian Figure Skating Nationals that is! We're getting to the tail end of proceedings now which means skaters I'd recognise are doing their programs. The short programs were today, but alas I got rather busy with getting the new tyres, then going to the gym and my volunteering at Dee Why Library. I guess I can just watch it back later on (the videos are saved, I think, I hope!), but I best remember to watch it tomorrow! Although, it kind of messes up my timing for going to the gym tomorrow. I'm still trying to figure that out though, because after cardio today I should be doing strength training, but I've still got those rather nasty bruises on my legs. They're in a bad spot for the weight-lifting so when I do the lifting I'll probably whack myself right in the bruised area!

Ah, I dunno.

Anyway, as mentioned I got the new tyres and I was pleased to find contrary to my belief I got to keep my sporty hubcabs. I guess it makes sense after I spoke to Mum about it this evening when she called, I'm not sure I ever had a car long enough to need to replace the tyres, but I always thought you got a whole new wheel. But nope.

Oops, I've just noticed the time, I've let myself get distracted - again! - so I better head off! Here's hoping my air-con can stand the heat tomorrow - I thought it had broken down earlier today, but thankfully it seems to be OK now. Fingers cross.

And now I say goodnight!

11:37pm: Yep, it was on this evening up at the Harbord Diggers Club, which I haven't been to in ages and which has changed a whole lot since I've been there!

Anyway, as it happened the Christmas Get-Together began quite early at 5:30! Which meant by the time I finished at the gym and Warriewood Square - to get the cheese for my lasagna - returned home, showered, did a load of washing and cooked said lasagna it was past 3:30pm!

Not knowing what sort of restaurant the party was at I decided to have a bit of the lasagna before I headed off just in case I didn't like anything on the menu. As it turned out it was an Italian restaurant inside the Diggers Club, but it was expensive as Hell so I ended up just getting some fries with avoli sauce (which I didn't eat) which were only 8 dollars and came in a huge portion! :Oo I got through them though.

A fair few people showed up although most of the Mona Vale people didn't arrive until after 6:30pm since the library there doesn't actually close until 6pm. So I hung around the Warringah Library staff mostly - although I probably should have at least tried to mingle with the Manly Library people. Oh well...

So it turned out quite well! Except that after going to all the trouble of taking it out this morning I left my jacket in my car and not long after arriving the wind picked up and I ended up feeling rather chilly. But I stayed until 7pm and it seemed fair enough to leave after one and a half hours.

I discovered later on though that I'd forgotten to put my lasagna in the fridge! Oh dear D: I put it in now, but I hope it's OK because it wasn't that cool this evening. I suppose as long as I heat the heck out of it before eating I'll be OK.

Right, I better wrap this up and hit the hay, I've got work tomorrow, also my mouse is acting strange so I think I should turn off the laptop.

Lastly, I watched some of the ice skating! The men's short program, alas there were many falls, but it was fun to watch (still if only Plushy was there - although now a days falls don't affect a program so badly so I guess he wouldn't be competitive, boo).

Right, so I bid you all goodnight and say Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends!

11:12pm: So, the latest figure skating competition is in China which means that I can actually watch it!

Sadly I forgot about it so missed my favourite ladies skater, but then I found a live stream from British Eurosport to watch the men and I was thinking "Great!"

However, British Eurosport have decided for reasons unclear to me to declare open season on poor Plushy whenever another Russian skater pops up. Like at first I thought I was just being oversensitive, but it's getting seriously uncool now. I mean they basically accused Plushy of just rocking up last minute and demanding to be in the Olympics at Sochi, which is a huge ass lie.

It shits me because they used to love Plushy, they used to overflow with praise when he skated and suddenly he's persona non grata. That's just shitty, if they had never liked him that wouldn't bother me nearly so much, but to suddenly turn on a person like that is totally uncool.

Although I shouldn't be so pissy, I mean it's not like Plushy is gonna watching the British Eurosport coverage of a Grand Prix Event, and even if he did he probably wouldn't give a shit. But that's what happens when you're a creepy fangirl like myself.

Anyway, moving on, it was hot today! I instantly regretted wearing my long pants to Mrs S's this morning and actually considered going home to change into shorts rather than going straight to the pet shop in Mona Vale. But I decided not to risk getting sidetracked and then not heading to the gym so I just cranked up the air con in the car :OP

When I got to the pet shop I realised that I'm pretty sure I didn't buy the gravel siphon from them because the box it came in had a price sticker on it whereas none of the other stuff in the place had stickers. They did have the same brand of siphon though so I could confirm that mine was the smallest available. One of the clerks though showed me how they got the siphon to work an it was different from how I tried so I'm gonna try it out next time. If it doesn't work, though...well I've probably wasted $14 because I really don't think I'll be able to return it without a receipt.

At least I got to the gym though!

And it's almost midnight so I better head off, I haven't done my Russian yet!

Goodnight all!

11:06pm: Tomorrow is D-Day...or should that be E-Day? Either way, the voting is probably about to begin over there - or maybe it all ready has in some states, and I suppose by this time tomorrow we'll all be finding out if the USA is going to screw us all or what.

And they better not, it was embarrassing as anything when Abbott was voted in here in Australia, but we are but a wee country without much political influence so in all honesty we were only hurting ourselves (and a number of poor refugees I suppose :O(), if Trump gets in however...bomb shelters will suddenly become a very good idea.

Also, I won't be able to watch the news for the next four years, it was bad enough having to put up with Tony Abbott while he was in, no way can I stomach watching that orange idiot pretending he has two brain cells to rub together.

Anyway, onto more palatable topics! Of which I don't actually have much to say about. It was a rather lazy day for me save for the hour I went to the gym. I was planning to wash my car, but with it's typical timing a storm came in and screwed that right up. Although, considering how often this happens I might just have to wash my car anyway. I mean if the car is clean the rain will be less likely to make it dirty, right? Unless the rain itself is dirty, I suppose.

What else to report, not a lot...I should really get some sort of hobby, although I've just remembered I did buy that fabric to make shirts (I should remember this, I only did it yesterday!) and perhaps I should try and do some writing. I've mentioned this previously, but I didn't actually do anything about it. Man, I need to get me some follow-through.

That will have to wait until tomorrow though because I must get to bed now! Don't let us down, USA, we're counting on you.

Goodnight all!
