11:37pm: I don't have much to say about today, the usual stuff happened, volunteering at the library, getting up late, LOL. I did have to go see Mrs S for a little bit, but that was really the only change in the typical routine of the day.

But OMG I almost forgot to mention the most important thing! I got a phone call from Manly Library today, they want me to come in for an interview next Wednesday! They asked if I wanted to do it 2pm but I've asked for 4:30pm instead since I'm supposed to help Mum out with Scripture Class, even though yesterday she wasn't able to do it because she got called in for substitute teaching at the high school in Mosman. Instead she got Dad to fill in for her, I'm surprised she managed to convince him, since Dad has been less than enthused about it, I went early to help him with both classes although he didn't really need me that much. Interestingly enough Year Two class seemed easier to handle, I guess they were all intrigued by the guitar,they all enjoy singing in that class. The aim was to teach them the Hail Mary, which I think Dad did, so with any luck they'll remember next week.

But yes, an interview for a library assistant job! Hooray! It's been a while though so I better work on my interview skills which I feel let me down a lot. With any luck Mum might be able to drive me to Manly afterwards so I can at least know if my hair is nice.

Anywho, time is swiftly moving and I need to get my zzz's! That being the case I'm gonna short entry this sucker and head for bed!

Goodnight all!

10:56pm: Well, I didn't get to updating this yesterday, but let me just announce...

Roger Federer is the GOAT! He won his 8th Wimbledon Title on Sunday and is the BOOSSSS of tennis! What a guy! You gotta love him! :OD

And apparently he plans to come back to Wimbledon next year! We'll have to see though. :O)

Moving along, I ended up staying over at the parental abode last night as well, because Mum and I watch Have You Been Paying Attention?, such hilarious times! Although I realised I left my cupcake tray behind, whoops. I'm sure Mum will bring it over tomorrow since she'll be coming over after Scripture Class, which means I need to clean this place up. I've been working on it...slowly, but I'm really going to need to pull my finger out after finishing work with Mrs. S.

What else to report? Nothing much, worked at the library this afternoon, it was kind of boring because they had Duke of Edinburg students volunteering, which means they did the shelving rather than me. Also, I was so close to finishing the book I've been reading, which I borrowed from there and was hoping to return, I've finished it now, but I don't if I should go return it tomorrow since I need to go to the supermarket, however as I said I need to clean my house!

I guess I don't need to return it, but I've had it out for quite a while and I feel rather bad for hogging it. But what can you do?

Right, I better wrap this up because I need to get ready for bed and do my Russian practice.

Wish me luck with my cleaning!

Goodnight all!

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!

11:42pm: And also writing and watching stuff on TV and whatnot, which is why I've left it rather late to get around to this entry.

Besides there's not that much to report, because well I spent the day working! First with Mrs S and then at the library. I did at least figure out how to move my story forward again, I keep getting stuck for a bit then have trouble to move on. I guess my Tumblr friend was right to advise me to wait until the story is finished before posting it up, because there'd be all sorts of pressure.

But yeah not much else to report - except bizarre story from yesterday when I was at my parent's place, I got all my clothes and went into the bathroom at my parents place to take a shower. I got to pick up my towel and somehow manage to flick my socks into the toilet! It had been flushed, but...obviously I couldn't wear them after that! So yeah, that wasn't embarrassing or annoying or anything. Seriously I don't know how this happens to me. :OP

What else? Hmm, I could have sworn I had something else to write...dang...shame. Plus it's almost midnight so it's probably best I wrap this off and go to bed, I've got work at the library again tomorrow morning, so no staying up late for me.

Although, I'll say one last thing, my Bamboo Spark does have a way to change writing to editable text, sort of, I have notoriously shitty handwriting so some of the words don't come out too clearly, I'm hoping if I get a writing pad with lines on it that it might be better.

On that note, I shall be off!

10:46pm: Not sure if I mentioned this but I borrowed a DVD series from the library the other week called The 72 Cutest Animals and of course it's full of cuteness! They've just shown the Elephant Seal, the adults aren't that cute, but the little calfs sure are! Man, I love seals and how they have to wriggle along, LMAO, boing, boing, boing! And so on :OP Looove it.

Anyway moving along, it's been a busy day! First there was work at Mona Vale Library this morning, it started off rather quiet, but ended up being quite busy and then afterwards volunteering at Dee Why Library. I arrived rather later than usual for the latter because I forgot my phone this morning so had to go via the Granny Flat to get it and I also had to pick up my newly altered pinstripe pants! :O) They're looking good although I have tried them on yet.

Speaking of pants though, I did buy a black pair with wider legs at Warriewood yesterday, I got them from Suzanne Grae which is kind of an old lady clothes shop, but it has the benefit of short length pants, which means they actually fit me without needing to be taken up! Praise the Lord! They look very nice, except they do seem to be slightly tight? But I think they'll expand a bit, I hope so! But it's not like I could have got the next size up because then they'd be too big. Seriously, what's up with pants and me? Pisses me off.

Eeee! Break in proceedings to say the panda has just shown up on the DVD and eeee they're so CUTE!!! They look like soccerballs! It cracks me up.

What else to report? Well, my throat seems to be a bit dry today...weird, I hope I'm not getting a cold (knock on wood), maybe I should gargle or something?

Oh! And I almost forgot, dinner with the co-worker last night went really well! On Mrs S's advice I made cupcakes, but I think I mucked up the recipe a little because they didn't come out as nice as they usually do. In fact the first batch was kind of a write-off to be honest. Oh well, at least I got the frosting right this time around!

My co-worker baked chicken and added some Hoysien sauce (I think), which was Chinese inspired, but there was also mashed potato and sliced potato with a Peruvian sauce on it. Which I've tried before at Mrs S's place, it's quite nice! And the second batch of cupcakes turned out OK, so there was that as well. Her boyfriend who lives in the sharehouse too joined us, so that was interesting!

So yeah good time being social, go me.

Anyway, I better wrap this up and head off, I've got to go to bed and do my Russian!

But! I can inform you the panda got to be number 1 in the list, as it should be, LOL.

Sand now, goodnight!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodnight all!

11:15pm: I seem to have lost my activity tracker...again! I know I had it this morning, but when I looked up it's location in the app it says it's in the city! More than that it says it was there four days ago, I haven't been to the city in months.

It was definitely with me this morning, ah damn where could it be? In the car? At the library? At the Save the Children charity shop I went to after I finished volunteering? Or is it in the house somewhere? I hope it's the latter but I've got a terrible feeling I might have lost it somewhere else... Ugh! Why do I fail at keeping my possessions with me? This is a serious problem.

Moving along, not much to report, although volunteering went well! I had to do some admin tasks for the Home Library Service and as I finished up the Home Library Service Co-ordinator had good news for me, one of the patrons really liked the items I selected for them. I'm always concerned about this so it's great news! I don't actually know who it is, but I shall find out next week. Cool.

In other news, I'm not sure what's going down with the fan fic, something showed up that seems to cement the timeline of Yuri on Ice and it puts it two whole years later than I thought! This kinda messed shit up, but I think I've fixed it. Then there's a whole thing about maybe I've got too much shit going on at once in one particular chapter, so I'm thinking of changing it, but I dunno...

Anyway, I better wrap this up I still need to do my Russian!

On the plus side I did get a pair of pinstripe pants at the Save the Children charity shop, which actually seem to fit. I hope!

And now I bid you all, goodnight!

11:17pm: Yeees, George III's birthday was a couple of days ago 4th June! Happy Birthday to the Monarch who's collection became the nexus of the British Library.

In other news, this is a creepy as Hell episode of Cold Case...I mean they usually are, but this one has a sick pedophile, so yeah, gross. There's a lot of sickos out there.

Not much else to report, although I did get my volunteering done at Dee Why Library as well as my paid shift at Mona Vale. Although, I'm not really looking forward to that bullshit training thing I have to go to on Thursday, I spoke to a colleague who went to the session that was on this morning and it sounds like the biggest wank. The only upside is I'll be paid for my time, but still...there's other stuff I could be doing, like writing my fic! I've slowed down in writing it, I don't want to lose the mojo...I'm think I should bring a notebook to that stupid training thing and write in it like I used to do at school. Hah that'll take me back.

Anyway, it's getting late and I need to wrap this up so I can get to sleep ASAP once Cold Case finishes, which is soon! Although this entry is seriously lacking, sorry about that - although I sure feel like I'm saying that a lot :OP I should get an interesting hobby!

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

11:02pm: Right now they're showing the ice show Plushy - and a bunch of other fabulous skaters - is in and I can't find a way to stream it. Boooo! Russian TV is really nice about this sort of thing (or perhaps they're trying to lull me into a false sense of security so they can hack my computer only to be severely disappointed by its content), but Japanese TV is a black hole when it comes to this kind of thing. Oh well, here's hoping some of it ends up on YouTube or whatever.

In other news, I'm confused as to why it's kind of too hot under the doona, but too cold outside the doona. WTF is this? Very annoying.

Moving on, I just realised the other day that I've been forgetting to write my positive note of the day! I'm supposed to be doing that so at the end of the year I can look back and see all the good things that happened in the year. I really must get back on it. I'm not sure if I should try to catch up on the days I missed though...my updates on Dreamwidth aren't really that descriptive so I might not be able to remember! I guess it could be good brain exercise.

Anyway! Work was weird today...in that mid-way through the shift the Librarian on Duty disappeared into the children's area I later discovered that some kid had thrown up down there and the poor Librarian had had to clean it up!!! OMG, I am so fucking glad I didn't get asked to do that, because let me just say no way, no way in Hell. I'd probably let myself get fired first.

Seriously though, the parent probably should have dealt with that, but I think they took the kid home which I guess is fair enough. Suffice to say I didn't go and shelve anything in that area after that.

And I gotta haul butt now, it's bedtime, but I haven't done my Russian yet! At least my writing is going well, yaay! :O)

On that note, goodnight!

11:23pm: Not anything about me for once but on the news tonight the son of the head of the Australia Tax Office has been busted for skimming money that should have been going to the tax office. Oops... A kid hasn't embarrassed his father in this country since the son of a cabinet minister wracked up a giant phone bill on his father's parlimentary account! Whoopsie.

Moving on, I took the bus to volunteering today, which is interesting because at the moment the bus drivers are strike, yet the buses here on the Northern Beaches all seemed to be running just fine. Obviously, it wasn't an employee-wide strike. Apparently the State Government is annoyed by this, saying it's disruptive, to which I reply "duh", what's the point of having a strike if it's not going to inconvenience people?

In other news, the Orange Cheeto of Doom is having a bad week, to which I say "HA!" take that, you dickhead. Although of course he's having a big old tantrum over the whole thing. What a piece of work. I do remain concerned that even if he is thrown out of office Mike Pence will become President, and he doesn't sound much better - in fact in many ways he sounds worse. Bloody Republicans.

And, I've just noticed how late it is, I'm meant to be asleep now, a couple of nights ago I felt like total crap and I'm pretty sure a lack of sleep might be the culprit. So yes, I better head off!

11:38pm: Yes! On the one hand still no luck on the pinstripe pants front, on the other...I got some new work shoes for a bargain price!

The latter is important because as mentioned I went to the podiatrist's today, although I miscalculated how long it'd take me and ended up being late - do'h! - luckily I was able to call ahead and the person who had the appointment before mine arrived early so we swapped them around. Anyway the podiatrist took one look at me walking and declared my orthodics needed immediate adjustment, and also that my shoes weren't the best. Which makes sense I've had them for some time and really one is meant to change shoes once they start to wear down.

So before going to my volunteering at the library I popped into this shoe shop which as far as I've seen is sort of an outlet where shoes are cheaper. At first I didn't see any good deals, but then I saw a little basket where all the shoes were twenty bucks each! And there was a nice pair in my size specifically designed by podiatrists for foot comfort! Niiice, huh?! I wore them to the library and they've proven to be must comfortable, yaaay.

In other news, not much, and I've procrastinated on this update here as usual which means I gotta run, because there's work tomorrow! Plus I'm sleepy. :OP

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.

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

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

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

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

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

11:16pm: So the first round of elections has happened in France, which leads me to wonder...why are there more than one round of elections?! Sounds like a tremedous pain in the ass. And voting's not even compulsory over there, so I wonder what the turn out for the polls are like.

Anyway, the moderate guy and the far right lady have got through...France better not fuck this shit up. Sweden managed not to let us down, so I hope they don't either, because there's really enough shit going on right now. Just the other day I heard that North Korea had said they could deploy a missile here to Australia?! WTF?

Moving along, not a lot to report, although that time o' the month is swiftly approaching and my knee is killing me because it's an ass. I've also been super clumsy, so embarrassing. Honestly, why is this still a thing that happens? It's been like 20 years.

(And now I feel old o.O)

What else...I dunno, I had a library shift this afternoon, which I was like five minutes late for because I popped into the pet shop to get a new filter insert thing, unfortunately said pet shop didn't have the filter in stock. Do'h! Oh well, five minutes lateness doesn't seem to be too terrible, but I really need to pick up my game there.

I was also supposed to call the agent about getting a 6 months lease and paying slightly more rent, but I totally forgot and now I can't do it until Wednesday because tomorrow is ANZAC Day and thus a public holiday.

Anyway, my brain sucks right now, so I'm gonna wrap this up here, I hope to be more coherent tomorrow!

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

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!

11:43pm: Indeed, although I had to spend most of it inside the library, boo :OP Bit of a shame really because it was still nice when I finished but by then it was only an hour to sunset, so I couldn't really enjoy it. And it's gone now, with a big storm having rolled through complete with lightning!

Anyway! I don't have a lot to say, I've been reading this evening because one of the books I borrowed from the library was due back yesterday and I can't renew it because there's a hold on it! Which means I really must finish and return it ASAP! As a staff member I don't actually get library fines, but it's hardly fair to whoever's waiting to get the book is it.

Lucky for me it's a kids book so I should be able to finish it in good time...although not tonight because I really need to get my butt to bed.

Before I do...drumroll please...

Sunday Stealing

:The Sassy Questions:

1. If you could say anything you wanted to say to Donald Trump, what would you say? "Fuck you." (Seriously I can't even imagine speaking to that man, I think I'd just stand their spluttering in pure indignation and impotent rage)

2. If you had to be the mother of Britney Spears or Lindsay Lohan, who would you choose and why? I have no idea. I mean, both of them have had their problems but I think they're doing OK now? In which case I can't really see one being better than another.

3. You get to be Queen for a day. The kids are all taken care of, and you can spend as much money as you want. What do you do all day? Do I get to pick the day? And since I don't have kids can I have more than one day? ;O) If so, I'd buy rinkside tickets for Fantasy on Ice in Japan where Plushy will be performing! It'd be awesooome.

4. Is there a song that brings tears to your eyes every time you hear it? If so, which one? Hmmm, not really. I don't like crying, it hurts my eyeballs too much!0

5. A fairy taps you on the shoulder and tells you that you can either have a perfect face or a perfect body for the rest of your life. Which do you choose? Well I like my face as is, but I could probably do with a stronger core (my posture sucks) so perfect body it is! :OP

6. If you could live any place in the world and money was no object, where would you live and why? I quite like Sydney and my family and friends are here so I'd probably just stay here like a boring person, LOL. I'd have a far nicer place then the Granny Flat I'm currently in though! Although...I'd probably want to get a holiday house in New York, just for the experience.

7. What is your biggest regret in life? Uh...I dunno? Not following Plushy when he was competing? (That's a lame one, but I've been a bit sad about it so...)

8. If you could go back and visit one person in your life who is now dead, and ask one question, what would that question be and why would you ask it? I'd like to see Grandma (Dad's mother) again and ask her to tell me her life story, because I never did and that's sad.

9. If you had the choice to age forward (like we are now) or aging backwards (think Benjamin Buttons) which would you choose and why? Ooo that's a pickle...On the one hand it seems great to think of becoming younger and healthier (as a general rule) as the years go by, but would you also unlearn stuff as you got younger? Would you end up losing your skills and abilities as you slowly approach birth? I guess that kind of happens anyway...but not necessarily! There's plenty of people who lived their whole lives without losing their faculties, so I guess...I'd stick with what we got now. Though it would be nice for those who die to "come back to life"...

10. What will the epitaph on your headstone say? "Here Lies Moose, She Planned to Write Something Witty, but...Procrastination..."

Okedoke, hope you all enjoyed that, but now for me it's bed time!

Goodnight all!

11:48pm: Not much and that's even taking into account that I didn't update yesterday! Man, I really need to get a hobby or something? Although, I'm now reminded that I used to do Memes...which would explain what took up a lot of my entry space beforehand.

So, yes not a lot to report, I didn't go ice skating today after work because...well, I was feeling kind of lazy, also last night I stepped on something and cut the bottom of my toe and it was still feeling rather uncomfortable. I have no idea what I stepped on, I'm a bit worried that it might still be stuck in the wound like a splinter or something. I gave it a clean and poked at it and it seems OK now. I wonder what it was...I can only assume glass, although how it got all the way over to my fridge from the bathroom is a mystery!

What else? Oh! My Uncle Sam phoned me to invite me along to a Simpsons Trivia Night! How cool! It's all part of the play that we're also all going to called Mr Burns. The Trivia Night is in the first week of May so I've put that into my phone, it's in the city and I hope that we can all drive in together although I guess I could get in there using public transport.

Speaking of the Simpsons, I seem to have lost my Marge Simpson glass which is super weird because...my place is still clean so I can't figure out where it could possibly have gone! Maybe I put in the dishwasher or something. A mystery to be sure.

Right, it's almost midnight so I best wrap this up, hopefully I'll bring the Memes back tomorrow (or maybe not hopefully depending on your opinion of that :OP)

Goodnight all!

11:37pm: In Equador? I'm watching House Hunters International and apparently in Equador (and other places I suppose?) they don't have regular hot water, they just put heating wires around the actual shower head. Like WTF? I don't even understand how that would work without electrocuting you first time. Seems it must though. Crazy all the same if you ask me.

Anyway, not much to report I got to work at Mona Vale today early...real early as it turns out as I wasn't on today! WTF? How embarrassing! I felt pretty silly, especially since I bought a sausage roll for break time before going in. There wasn't any mini-sausage rolls there, but the owner kindly let me have a normal sized one for the same price!

So, once I discovered that I wasn't on at Mona Vale, I realised that meant I needed to do my volunteering! So it was off to Dee Why Library for that. On the plus side, at least that meant I could return the stuff I borrowed there personally because I'm still not sure if returning them at Mona Vale means they'll get checked in that same day. Because Dee Why Library doesn't let staff avoid overdue fees, which is pretty rude when I think about it...

Anyway, the volunteering went OK, although I don't feel like I got as many selections done as I should have, oh well. Once I finished I popped by the parentals on the way home to try looking for my sunglasses, but no luck. While there though Mum gave me some concerning news about my apartment, the agent had actually called me while I was driving to the library to ask for Mum's number so she could tell here something and I found out what it was.

They hadn't actually got the DA entirely approved by council when they were selling the apartments! So instead of a 15 storey tall building, they can only do a 7 storey one! Which means a whole lot of apartments will no longer exist! There's no word on whether mine will be one of these, but seriously what the fuck? I guess that news article wasn't wrong! Buying off the plan is risky. Now if the apartment does disappear we can get our money back, but I'm most irritated because the deposit we paid could have been in our bank accounts gaining interest. Instead the building company gets it! I've heard about that bullshit before, not cool not cool at all.

So, now I have to wait and see what happens.

On the upside I found my sunnies! I turned out I'd left them in the shopping bag with my new swimsuit - so it was here in my room this whole time! How embarrassing - again! I actually thought about that this morning but I'd forgotten where the bag was...so that was another worry until I found it again. But yes everything is back in hand.

Anyway, it's coming up on midnight so I better haul butt, good news, though, Plushy's grand opening of his skating school went super well and there was cake and everything! Yum! Except now I want cake ;O)

But yes, on that note, I'm out!

Goodnight all!

11:54pm: So when I got back to the Granny Flat today before heading off for my shift at the library I went to have a shower and discovered...

My bathroom window had a hole in it! And shards of glass had fallen out and ended up on the floor, I did my best to vacuum it up, but managed to miss a bit and step on it, ow! I had to put a band-aid on it and everything. I have no idea how it broke? It almost looks like someone threw a ball, but the weather has been rather wild so perhaps something got blown into it...

So now, I've got this hole in the window, just as the weather is starting to cool down! Plus I've totally slacked on cleaning the place so I wasn't able to notify the landlord because I didn't want him coming in and seeing the mess. I'll have to get a move on with that, though, because I really must get it fixed and perhaps my dripping taps while I'm at it.

So, that was my excitement for the day! :OP Beyond that my shift at the library went well, except of course it's getting dark by the time I finish work now, booo. Didn't help that the weather remains crappy with rain on and off. Man, if these clouds don't clear up Professor Brian Cox isn't going to see shit in the sky.

Right, it's almost midnight and I have to clean up the place tomorrow and whatnot so I better get my butt to bed now.

Goodnight all!
