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!

11:48pm: 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

So I say goodnight!

10:15pm: Well, at least I'm getting a good pun in, but in all seriousness this is so fucked up.

As you all know my memory sucks...and this time it's truly ruined my wallet.

I decided after watching the ice skating highlights on SBS that it was time to head to Macquarie Centre and get my skates on. So I'm driving when suddenly police car lights flash in my rearview mirror! I was surprised but thankfully had the presence of mind to pull over rather than keep driving like some of the idiots you see on RBT/ I thought maybe I was getting a random breath test, but after handing my licence over I discovered it was worse...much worse.

I had completely forgotten to register my car!

It expired last Saturday so for almost a week I've been driving around unregistered and uninsured! FUCK! How could this happen?! Why didn't I get a renewal notice?! Didn't I pay for it? (No that was my comprehensive insurance, which is a totally different thing).

The cop was very nice, but that didn't stop him from giving me a ticket for driving unregistered (although, he at least didn't give me one for being uninsured too).

A ticket for $650.

I'll type that out again for you in the back row.

SIX

HUNDRED

AND

FIFTY

DOLLARS
!!!

That's more than I earn in a week! That's nearly three weeks worth of savings towards the stamp duty for my apartment. Two and half weeks worth of rent.

It's an absolutely ENORMOUS amount of money! On top of the actual cost of registration and the CTP Greenslip (which is $900). Add to that the parking fine from a few weeks ago...and the speeding fine...my car is swallowing money like a monster. :'O(

I don't understand why this is happening! I've always been such a good driver! Now I'm speeding, illegally parking, scraping and driving unregistered like a complete loser.

What really kills me though is that for some reason, despite the fact I changed my address for my licence, Service NSW (which includes the Road Department) had my OLD address on file. How can that be?! Although as it turned out it doesn't look like the renewal slip came to my old place because I went there on my way home (I couldn't continue on to the ice rink :O( which was the cherry on top of a completely sucky cake) and the old landlord said he hadn't seen it.

So, the damn fuckers didn't even send it!! What the fuck?! The nice cop said I could ask for a review of the fine and see if they'd waive it, but I don't hold out hope...if they wouldn't take pity on me for speeding 7 minutes before I would have been going 20kms under the speed limit, I don't see why they would for driving unregistered and uninsured.

If the review fails you can take it to court, but like that'll happen! If I end up been found guilty I'd need to pay even MORE, and no way could I stand up in court and defend myself.

And here I was thinking the day was looking good because despite having forgotten to take my lunch with me to work I found my nurse's watch! It was on the shelf in the Returns Room of the library where I put my stuff, it must have fallen out. I was so glad to see it again!

However...that watch cost $7, so...it all pales in comparison.

And to top it all off? Because my car is more than five years old, it needs a safety check before I can register it. And absolutely no mechanic in the area is open on Sunday, there's no way I can register my car until Monday. I have no idea how I'm going to achieve it...I've got a shift at the library on Monday afternoon, so I'm not sure if catching a bus to Mrs S's and then back to the house to get the car and taking the car to my mechanic for the check will work because I'll only have 1.5 hours between Mrs S and the library. Although when I type it out like that....

On the other hand I feel like I need to get this looked at as soon as possible, apparently the check can take 15 minutes, but it all depends, it could end up been 40 minutes. If that happened in the 1.5 hours I'd be stuffed because the shift doesn't end until 6pm when the mechanic would be closed, so how would I even get my car?

So I guess on Monday morning I'll get to the mechanic's at 7:30 - Google says he opens at 8am, but who knows maybe he'll open early.

The thing is, I don't want to tell my parents about this...there's nothing they can do about it and even if they lent me money I'd have to pay it back so it's not like I'd save any money. However...Sunday night is when I usually go over there, but obviously I can't do that, even worse I can't go to church with Dad (either in the morning or the evening) because there's no way to get there by public transport (or at least not without catching two buses). But I'm a creature of habit so what am I meant to say? Although it's just occurred to me I could simply tell Dad (Mum will be away at a hotel) that my car's out of rego so I can't drive it without mentioning the supreme fuck-up that was the fine. I guess that'll have to do.

The other big disappoint is that I was supposed to see my grandparents' and little bro tomorrow morning (to thank the former for the money to go on the cruise and to finally give the latter that huge Ferrero Roche I got just after Christmas and which goes off at the end of this month), but obviously I can't drive there either. I rang the little bro to tell him my woes (he's had fines himself so he was most sympathetic) and he did offer to come and pick me up and even drive me to work, although we hadn't actually asked M and Grandpa if they were available for tomorrow so he called them up to ask, but they haven't got back to us yet, so who knows what will happen there.

Oh...and lastly, my activity tracker is still MIA, I called the library, but it wasn't in lost property, but then again...it's hard to describe, also the shelves are magnetic so maybe it's stuck to one of them. As for the Medical Centre, they didn't answer the phone so I have no idea if it could be there. I was planning to go there tomorrow to look, but...can't do that.

Okay then...let's wrap it up here, I still have my Russian to do.

Goodnight.

11:53pm: Because after nearly a year I've...somehow...managed to lose my Up Move! This suuuucks! And it would seem to be because of my new black shorts! I have no idea why but the magnetic holder thingie tended to fall off them. I'm not sure if it's something to do with the material or what? Anyway, I thought I'd managed to solve the problem after it fell of a few times at Mrs S's but when I got home after a day out in Dee Why (I went to the doctor about my thumb) it was gone! When I looked at the app it said it was last seen in Dee Why at 1:53pm! D:

Of course that doesn't necessarily mean it didn't fall off somewhere else, but after calling Mum and Dad (I popped by their place on my way home to help Mum with her iPhone - even though I don't know shit about them) and having them confirm it wasn't there, I got in my car and headed back to where the app said. Alas, I couldn't find it. Of course...I can only imagine if it did just fall off my pants and land on the pavement someone would have picked it up or thrown it out. :O(

My last hopei s that it might have fallen off when I was in the library or at the medical centre, I'll have to call them both tomorrow, otherwise I'll be ordering a new one from Ebay.

In the meantime I've taken out my old activity tracker from Aldi, although it's taking a while to get the app up and running on my phone since I haven't used it in aaages.

Oh wait, here it goes now.

Anyway, I was in Dee Why because I had to take something of Mrs S's there as soon as I finished work and decided not to go home afterwards - although it was a three hour wait. I spent some of that time, shopping, painting over the scratch on my car, in the library, before going to the medical centre.

Alas, the doctor couldn't tell me what if anything was causing my thumb soreness. Except she was pretty sure it wasn't anything serious. It's really weird though, it only hurts if I physically move it by itself, when the doctor used her hand to move it or even if I did it didn't. Which the doc agreed was some weird shit. All that I can do for now is keeping putting the anti-inflammatory gel on it.

So, I better wrap this up and hit the sheets, zzzzs are needed as always!

Goodnight all!

10:03pm: Aw man, I think I'm once again going to have to take a break in proceedings regarding the recounting of the cruise (man, I hope I don't forget all the fun things I did! :OP) because this cold is kicking my ass.

The good news, the sore throat seem to abated.

The bad news, we have entered the runny nose part and I forgot to buy tissues when I went to Aldi today - also ice cream, but tissues are way more important and it's way too late to do anything now except go to the 7-11 up the road but I'm not up for that. I may have to use a roll of toilet paper.

I did manage work today, although I forgot to bring my security pass so when I arrived I had no choice put stand in front of the window near the after-hours return chute until one of the other staff members saw me. And...of course it had to be raining (it had been raining since last night actually - it might still be doing so now, but I don't feel like checking). Which reminds me I better find it and put it in my bag now.

Right, done!

I also had a period of time today where I couldn't find my cruise ship pen! I thought maybe I left it at Mrs S's house so I SMS'ed her, but nope so then I was left worrying that it had fallen out of my bag at some point.

Turned out it was on my bed. Man, I gotta keep better track of stuff! I was almost late this morning to work anyway because I couldn't find my car keys. Sigh, major fail.

Also, with the runny nose situation I had to nix the cupcake making - I mean maybe if I was making them just for myself, but for other people?! That's a food-safety violation of the highest order. Shame though, I bought the double thick cream and butter and everything.

Anyway, I better wrap this up and go to bed - I'm a bit worried about work tomorrow afternoon, since when I have a cold I generally feel grossier the more the day gets on...I may have to skip church so I can wake up late although I'm not 100% sure that'll make a difference.

Right, I'm out.

Goodnight!

10:45pm: It was hot today, like 38 degrees C hot and unfortunately the library air-con could not keep up the pace and while it was cooler than that, it was still enough to make me sweat like Rafael Nadal on a an tennis court (OK, I'm probably exaggerating there, but there was definitely forehead wiping).

However, I did discover this morning while talking to Mum on the phone the problem with my air-con...I might have mentioned before that I had to buy a second hose to connect to the first one so it could reach the window, which means that the two hoses can separate. And somehow I managed not to notice that this had happened, so yesterday and last night the damn thing was pumping hot air into the room as fast as cold air was coming out! No wonder it wasn't doing shit! Once I reconnected the hoses the room actually cooled down! So perhaps all is not lost.

In other news, I seem to have lost the anti-chafing body glide stuff, which sucks, firstly because I've ended up chafed and sore and secondly, it cost me 20 bucks! I looked around my room a bit this morning, but I couldn't see it. I checked the car too, but no luck :O( I have a terrible feeling it might have ended up in the parking lot near the psychiatrist's office because I dropped my bag and all the stuff fell out. I thought I picked everything up, but...

I'm half tempted to go back to look for it, but it will have been three days and I'm pretty sure it won't be there anymore. :O( I bought some petroleum jelly from Coles this evening after work since the net indicated it might be useful, I sure hope so. But I'm not sure what to put on the area now that it's all ready chafed, I'm having to do the cowboy walk and it's not fun.

Anyway, after it being so hot I'm quite sleepy! I got 8.5 hours in bed last night, bu I'm sure if I looked more carefully I probably didn't get as much deep sleep as I should have.

I feel I should do at least one Meme...

11:33pm: Well, there is, but it seems to have disappeared somewhere...I mean I have others, but it's really weird, I got myself some ice cream, picked up the bowl and spoon and took it into my bedroom/living room, let the Ice Magic se and when it was time to eat...the spoon was gone! Disappeared into thin air! Seriously, WTF? I went back into the kitchen to look for it, but nope. I guess I can only hope it hasn't disappeared in my bed somewhere and I end up rolling on it when I'm sleeping.

Speaking of sleep...I made the mistake of not checking my alarms after changing them for last weekend when I didn't have work on. You can see where this is going, right? I woke up at 9:20am and I begin work at 9:30.

Suffice to say it was a huge-ass rush to get to work and I was about ten minutes late and though I did remember who I was working with today I also realised I didn't have a mobile number for them and they weren't likely to answer the actual library phone before opening. The librarian in charge for the day said that it was fine, but I'm still thinking about been told off about my lack of punctuality and how I might get in trouble for it. I hope my lateness doesn't actually get reported to anyone!

Anywho, it was pretty warm today and I'm a bit bummed I didn't get a chance to go swimming, I could have gone over to Mum and Dad's after work I suppose, but I wanted to go home and watch ice skating on SBS - which I finally did! - I could have gone once it finished, but...I didn't due to laziness. So I guess that's my own fault. I'm thinking perhaps I should go over tomorrow before work, or maybe go to church in the morning and then go straight over after work to Mum and Dad's for my usual Sunday sleepover, I think the pool is open until 7pm?

In other, bad news my external hard drive - the one I've been saving pretty much everything to ever since my last computer's hard drive died and I had to replace it - has stopped working! The little connection thing is a loose! So I think the data is still on there, but I have no idea how I can get it off except by taking it to a computer repair place, but who know's how much that'll cost me? I did manage to get some stuff off it before it decided to die on me - even when I held the cord in an odd manner - but not pictures folder. That's got all sorts of stuff on it, shiiit.

Obviously, the concept of backing up has eluded me.

On that note, I have to be off, it's almost midnight and I don't want to stay up too late if I'm gonna do stuff tomorrow morning.

For now, goodnight!

10:51pm: Indeed! Although now I've built them up so much you're bound to be disappointed :OP Actually I hope you can see them all because I got an email regarding one, apparently one of the Christmas carols being played in the background is copyrighted and the email says that some countries may be unable to play it. Bloody rude, if you ask me, it's only a 30 second long video or something and the sound quality isn't the greatest either.

Bah. Well anyway, here's the first part - a diorama the owners have in their garage. :O) Also here's part two which is up on top of the garage, lots of amazing stuff up there too! And the last part which is the view going down the stairs as you can see they really went all out with this! Although you have to wonder what the house next door to it makes of all this, I noticed it was up for sale actually and couldn't help wondering if the display would help or hinder the selling LOL.

And...I've just realised that 9GEM is showing Cold Case again, which I've mentioned previously is not available on DVD because the licencing for all the songs would be astronomical. And I'm pretty sure I haven't taped the one that's on now...having said that, it's only just started, but I need to go to bed soon so I'm not sure how this would even work. Oh well.

I'd like to know what happened to Air Crash Investigation though, it's not on anymore, booo, and I finally freed up enough space on my Blu-Ray player to record it.

Anywho, I better go, time's a-tickin' away!

Oh, I almost forgot, things went OK with Mrs S today although I did end up being ten minutes late, do'h and also managed to lock my keys inside, with no time to go back and get them. Luckily, when I got back home after work the landlords were hopme so I managed to get in with my key.

OK, now I really do have to go!

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!)

Goodnight all!

9:36pm: Right, let's start with the good news! I found my personalised Nutella label! I'd all put given up hope on it when suddenly I realised there was one last place it could be, my laptop bag, which I stuck in the left cupboard part of the buffet cabinet. And there it was, whoo! :OD

So that's a big relief, what isn't such a big relief is the fact that all the studio apartments in the development my mother and I looked at a few weeks back have sold - or at least had deposits put on them. :O( Awww, I was looking forward to living somewhere nice and new in the future...Although I suppose I should make sure I've got a sufficient income before I do that. Mum and Dad are of the opinion that it wasn't meant to be, and something no doubt will pop up, but I dunno...housing is getting more expensive! Experts keep saying there's going to be an oversupply of apartments and thus the price will fall, but they've been saying that for ages and it doesn't seem to be happening any time soon.

Then the weird news...I seem to have lost a cucumber...I got it and a carrot to have for dinner and then went into the main room to eat and got distracted and whilst I found the carrot the cucumber remains unseen! Which is awkward because I last saw it on my bed...so like it's in here somewhere. o.O Man, I hope not...I've looked, though and I cant find it!

What else to report...well as it turns out all my cleaning yesterday afternoon didn't pass muster, now admittedly I did forget to clean the fridge, but I gave the oven, microwave, shower and toilet a go. In fact the toilet is rather questionable...when I got there it had a stain in it that wouldn't come out, not even Mum could get it to sparkle again. I gave it a good hard scrub, but...you know. The shower was also a disaster, Shower Sparkle only works on a clean shower so there were all these streaks on the glass doors.

Anyway, the landlords said I could either do more cleaning or pay $50 from my bond and have their cleaner - who comes tomorrow - do it. In all honesty I'm someone who sucks at cleaning so I decided to cut my losses because chances were I'd go back and it still would pass muster.

In other news...Le Course by Le Tour De France is on this evening before the Last Stage, this is the women's bike race, unfortunately there's a problem with commentary at present! I have no idea who any of these ladies are or who's in the lead or what. You can hear the onsite commentary, but it's in French which I don't know so that's no help, LOL.

And I finally went to church tonight after missing two weeks - shame on me :OP - my parents also went so we sat together, they were supposed to bring my heater with them, but they forgot to look for it while they were at M and Grandpa's today. Ah well, I've got my electric blanket, although whenever I get up it's coooold.

Before I go, let's have a Meme or two! )

Right, that took longer than I thought, so I'll be off now!

Goodnight all!

9:23pm: I don't actually see how the latter is possible, because this afternoon when I finished work I went to the old Granny Flat to clean and there was absolutely nothing left in there of mine.

So...where's my personalised Nutella label?! I'm super concerned that I threw it out :O( That would be...well not a tragedy, or devastating, but it sure would suck. Like I said they don't have the promotion going on anymore, the closest I could get would be to print one off on my printer, but it wouldn't be waterproof or anything.

Also, some of my smiley hooks are missing...it's a bit odd. Perhaps they're in the car somewhere? But I'm not sure how I could have missed them, I thought I checked really carefully, but maybe not?

Anyway, moving on, it's past 10pm and I've written three paragraphs on this entry, but I uploaded some more photos! First up the entry area, or as I like to call it, the Foy-yay. I don't know where the chest of drawers came from, I could have sworn it wasn't there when Mum and I inspected the place, but they're fabulous! And the bookcase is slim as anything but look at all the books I managed to fit on it! Although admittedly the bottom two shelves are doubled, but I can deal.

Speaking of books, with a fair amount of rearranging and doubling up of books in the middle section of the buffet cabinet I fit almost all my books in! Can we have a Hell yeah! ;OD

I still need to get another crate because the one that the rest of the books are in won't fit in the crate holder - I don't know how that happened. Although I'm not sure when because the places where the crates are available are a bit out of my way.

But I guess I don't need a short shelf or cabinet to put under the bench of the kitchen since I've managed to sort this book issue out, which is a good thing because I'll probably need to store my paper recycling bin and garbage bin under there, as well as my cupcake maker. Although I dunno...I feel like a cabinet would look better but who knows.

The next picture is of my pantry, which Mum and her friend so kindly put together for me (with the help of the guy who put the bench in I would think) and though narrow I managed to get pretty much everything in there. Go me!

And lastly, here's the controls for the stove/oven. Now is it just me or does it look like each knob turns on two of the three stove tops at a time? Since when has an uncoloured circle equalled on?

It's a weird little unit though, what with the three stove tops and also the fact that it's called an Estelle Email though I'm quite sure predates email as we know it. :OP

What else to report? Well, it was windy as all Hell today and when I got home I discovered that all the paper I'd put in the recycling bin and left outside due to lack of room with the drying rack up had strewn themselves all over the yard! I managed to gather them all up and put the paper bin inside.

I also got a bin for the kitchen, a cute one in green! It's like a smaller version a wheelie bin, I think it looks pretty sharp, although I'm sure my mother will diss it. :OP

There was something else I was gonna write, but now I've forgotten what it was! Oh, well the heater my father bought over does have a problem...in that two of the four heating elements don't actually work, so it's on at the moment but not really heating as well as it could. Hmmm, I need to find time to go to M and Grandpa's to search for my heater...and play Canasta with M too! I'll have to see what a good day will be.

And let's catch up on the Memes a Bit! )

Man, once again this entry has totally got away from me...better wrap this up and head to bed, still gotta catch up on zzzs. Tomorrow is going to be busy again, I have to go back to the old granny flat for the outgoing inspection because it was still wet this afternoon since the last thing I did was mop the floor. Hopefully, I've done a good job and will get my entire deposit back! I owe my other some money!

For now, goodnight!

10:26pm: As it turns out I don't need it, because I managed to find the official transcript for my Masters in Information Studies that I need to take to the interview tomorrow. However, I really should put it in a folder so it doesn't get tattered or dog-eared. Also..there's some important stuff in that folder...I could have sworn I saw it only last month but it's nowhere to be found now. I guess it'll turn up when I start packing to move out.

In other news, I need to figure out what to wear! Normally for interviews I wear a dress or skirt, but I've kind of neglected to wax my legs, so you know...plus I'm planning to go to Dee Why Library afterwards for my volunteering and to let the staff co-ordinator person there know how the interview went so I'd probably be more comfortable in pants. Although should I at least wear my dressier shoes? I dunno...

Of course, I'm wondering now if I should have taken my mother up on her offer to go over the position description and whatnot so I could be prepared for any questions I might get from the interview panel. However, she called me at about 4pm and I didn't really feel like heading out, although it's school holidays so the traffic would probably have been fine. But yeah...

Soooo...not much else to report, although I did finally get back to the gym today and to my surprise quite a few people turned up to work out as well. Like at one point there were six of us in there! Quite unusual, at least for the past couple of months I've been there. I did go a bit later than usual I suppose.

And now I've procrastinated so much here that it's quite late and I gotta do my Russian before I hit the hay!

On a final note, an Aussie won a stage of Le Tour De France yesteday, whoo! How cool is that. :OD And the pelaton just went through a roundabout, that's my favourite part.

OK, I'm off...wish me luck everyone, tomorrow is going to be some srs bsns.

11:14pm: I'm watching my housing shows and they've just shown us an 'extreme home' in Mexico, complete with a toilet that's at the top of an old elevator shaft, and the architect decided to make the floor of said bathroom of clear glass! It's double thickness so it's perfectly safe, but seriously! Imagine hurrying to the toilet and stepping out seemingly into the air! You'd probably crap your pants too! :OP

Moving on, I decided to go with a different activity tracker all together, a Jawbone Up Move, which was only 30 bucks, it doesn't come in green, but it does come in purple - plus you can buy holders for it from some place in China that come in all the colours of the rainbow so I got a green one from there. Apparently you can put it anywhere on your person, so that's cool! I'm not sure how long it'll take to arrive, but it's been posted from just a state away so hopefully not too long. I'll keep you all updated. (I'm sure you'll all be on the edge of your seats! :OP)

I decided to do this after checking all over the library today and near where I parked in the parking lot, as well as calling the two shops I went to at Supercentre yesterday with no luck. Damn shame, I've still got the wrist bands!

Speaking of the library, it was a quiet day today, although the rain was not as terrible as predicted it was still enough to keep most people away. For a while I considered not going to church, but since Mum and Dad were doing the singing and the rain wasn't very heavy I thought I should go. And I did the PowerPoint there for the first time! Nice. I did a good job, if I do say so myself, which was a good thing because it was another round of First Communion for some kids in the parish.

Anyway, I better do some Memes and run, bed calls! )

OK, time to go! Goodnight all!

9:07pm: I'm so bummed! As you can tell from the subject title my activity tracker has once again disappeared :O( I've been wearing it on my pocket lately because it wasn't tracking my steps properly when I put it in my bra. Of course, having lost the bloody thing it's not tracking anything at all!

Now, it could possibly be in the library where I worked today, but it could also be in the parking lot of the shopping centre where I parked or at the Supercentre all the way over in Belrose where I went after to work to get some curtains for Mrs S. Oh man...

On the plus side - such as it is - there's was (as of Friday) another fitness tracker available at Aldi in Mona Vale, so I suppose I could just buy that tomorrow. But that'll be the third one in like 6 months! And while the price of them has gone down, I've all ready spent like $70 so far. I'm wonder if I should just go all the way and buy one of those pricey necklace activity tracker things, sure they cost twice as much but the necklace would make it almost impossible to lose, plus you can get them in nice colours.

Although...I do like Aldi and thus feel kinda bad for not using their activity tracker. Maybe I could start wearing it inside my sock so if it got loose it'd just fall inside...

Man, I'm so conflicted here! I can get a nice Misfit Shine for $87.95...the Activity Tracker is like $40... Help me out here internet friends! I need to make a decision quick so don't leave me hangin'! :OP

Anyway, the big rain storm didn't eventuate today! In fact, aside from a light shower in the early morning it was actually sunny and really quite warm. Had I known this I would have left my beach towel and swimming costume outside to dry instead of bringing them in. The swimming costume seems to be OK, but the towel is still all wet. Boo.

However, the rain is supposed to set in tomorrow, I'm rather hoping it'll wait to late morning, so I can get to ice skating! Also I need to buy a new soap dispenser with that ten dollars I still have on my Fly Buys card at Target because I managed to break the one I have. It sucked! The bathroom floor is still slippery from the soap that was inside. :O(

Man, this has been an entry with lots of bitching hasn't it? :OP I better meme and run before I get too bitter!

Saturday 9

:Papa, Don't Preach (1986):

1) Madonna has sold more than 200 million records worldwide. Do you have any of her songs on your iPod/mp3 player/phone? I do actually! Live to Tell and This Used to be My Playground and I don't mind it when her songs come on the radio.

2) When she first arrived in New York in search of fame and fortune, Madonna supported herself by working at Dunkin' Donuts. What did you order last time you were at Dunkin' Donuts? Hmmm, it's been a while, especially since I moved here because the nearest Dunkin' Donuts is at Dee Why and I don't really go there.

3) Madonna and her first husband, Sean Penn, ended their marriage on New Year's Eve, 1988. Sam's New Year's Eves are never that dramatic. What about you? Do you have any vivid New Year's Eve memories you'd like to share? Well my family and I brought in 1994 on a junk in Hong Kong Harbour, which was pretty damn cool and super memorable! Wasn't so good for Dad though, he gets seasick. But the fireworks and lightshow was spectacular, especially the Garfield themed decoration on the side of one building! He was really big there when we went.

4) Madonna admits she suffers from brontophobia, aka the fear of storms. Are you scared of thunder and lightening? I have to admit I don't like storms very much, especially really loud thunder, but I don't cower under the bed or anything like that.

5) Onstage during the 2015 Coachella fest, Madonna shocked the audience by planting a kiss square on the lips of much-younger rapper Drake. What's something that surprised you recently? I have to say I was really surprised that there were real alligators at Disney World! That poor kid. I certainly wouldn't have thought OH&S would have let that go down.

6) More recently, Madonna was at the center of a controversy because Prince fans didn't like her tribute at the Billboard Music Awards. They made themselves heard on social media. Was your last Facebook post or Tweet positive or negative? Well, if we count this one, a bit negative? LOL.

7) One of the things Sam's papa preaches about is car maintenance. He reminds her to check her car's air filter regularly, because a dirty filter can reduce mileage. Share your own car maintenance tip with us. Hmmm, I used to have one, but I've forgotten it now.

8) When she was growing up, Sam's father was often away on business. He always remembered to bring back the complimentary shampoos, conditioners and lotions from the hotels where he stayed. When will you next stay in a hotel (or motel, bed-and-breakfast or Airbnb room)? No idea...I will be on a cruise ship next February though.

9) To celebrate Father's Day, Sam is giving away her father's favorite candy: LifeSavers. Would you prefer a roll of Wild Cherry, Butter Rum, Winter Green or Peppermint? Musk LifeSavers! They're magically delicious. :O)

Right, I'll be off now, since I need to clean the house a bit because whenever I have to hang the laundry inside the place always looks terrible.

So I say goodnight to you all.

11:18pm: Look at the time! I'm supposed to be asleep in two minutes! Which even if I wrapped this up right now would be an impossibility.

But I really should be working on catching u on my zzzs, I was still tired today even though I got my 8 hours. So rude.

Also I'm concerned that I seem to have lost a library book...I really hope I left in the library because I've searched my flat and my car and it's nowhere to be seen! I don't want to have to pay to replace it, the cost is outrageous lemme tell you.

And my subject heading could also apply to women's tennis, our last Aussie hope lost tonight, after a stunning first set! Damn, what a shame.

Oh well, Fed-Ex is on now, and I think he'll be OK, go you good thing!

In other news, I think my guts have finally decided to settle down, knock on wood, it happened about midway through the day much to my relief. Hopefully this will continue because I got stuff to do!

So yes, apologies for once again letting the memes slide, but that's how it goes.

Wish me luck tomorrow with trying to solve the library book mystery!

Goodnight all!

10:38pm: I say this because my poor Misfit is missing! D: I last saw it at the swimming pool change room and I rushed back there this evening when I realised it was gone, but it wasn't there! I asked the people who were giving swimming lessons about lost property but it wasn't there either. Which is most worrying of all! Does that mean it's gone forever? Did one of the regulars pick it up and plan to give it back to me? Or maybe took it upstairs to the gym, I didn't think of that last one.

I'll have to call tomorrow, but daaaamnit. I remember looking at it there in the locker as I got changed after my swim and thinking that I better not forget it and what do I do? That's a great piece of fail on my behalf.

I'm further worried that I did take it with me and then it fell off later on, in which case it's truly gone forever.

Why does this happen? That cost me $55!

Bah! Moving on from this unpleasantness I spent this evening putting together all the sheets of printer paper together to make the shirt pattern before cutting out the pieces. I'm still not sure if I should go ahead using that though or search for an actual pattern, or maybe I should make a test shirt? Although the spare fabric I have would be most unpleasant for a shirt, LOL.

What else to report? Well, I still haven't heard back from five of my friends! Two of them (who go out) are in the Blue Mountains together which I guess would explain it, but what about the other three? Don't people check their phones these days? I was going to ring them, but I managed to forget, which is my own fault I suppose. I hope it won't be too late to do so tomorrow.

Anyway, I better do a meme so I don't end up too far behind!

Bring it On! )

In closing, the weather as promised finally decided to clear up, so hopefully Saturday will happen as forecast and finally it's Plushy's youngest son's birthday - or it was so Happy Birthday to him.

And now off I go to bed!

11:36pm: Making cards that is...what isn't in the cards is memes, sorry about that!

But it's been a busy day, what with work at Mrs S, then a drive to the Super Centre in Belrose and then work at Mona Vale Library!

I managed to do it all though, phew! Despite the fact I had to make a detour via Mrs S's house on my way to the library because I thought I'd left my mobile phone there. As it happened...I hadn't left it there, at least not in her house, no...it had fallen out in the bin room. Into the bin itself! I know...ewww...and also embarrassing. How do these things happen? Good thing I checked though! Otherwise I'd be down one phone! O.o

In other news, there's an ad on right now for a perfume...called Black Opium, is it just me, or is naming perfumes after illicit drugs in rather poor taste? I mean do we really want teenagers asking for that? Or associating it with a nice smell? Or is it just because opium isn't a word that's used much these days? I still think it's weird.

So yes, I got the three cards that need to go overseas done only to discover that I don't have their addresses after all! Shit. I've sent a private Plurk, but I'm not sure what will happen if they don't reply tomorrow because I'm quite sure they won't arrive on time anyway...but they certainly won't if I have to wait another day! Gulp!

And...look at the time, it's too late and I better be off, sorry for the short entry syndrome!

So now goodnight all!

10:43pm: I bought new clothes today! Now admittedly one was half-price, but still actual new clothes! I've been depending on second hand shops or my mother deciding to buy me something, which has worked out rather well honestly, but I was having no luck with getting some nice looking black shorts or three quarter jeans. So when I saw that Just Jeans was having the buy-one get the one 50% off I decided to take advantage. I've been having a heap of trouble finding non-distressed 3/4 jeans, but there were three different blues to choose from! Also they had size 11s, I've been bemoaning the problem that I seem to be in between size 10 and 12, so this is great! Although I still had to get the size 12 in the shorts, because the size 11 of those didn't fit quite across the hips.

Anyway...I put the new shorts on tonight, and am I most happy with them. Although, right as I was making the purchases I was overwhelmed by...well I didn't think it was a panic attack, but maybe it was? Anyway, I got dizzy, a little nauseous and sweating.It was really bad, I wanted to lie down, but there was nowhere to do that. So I ended up just sort of wandering around aimlessly trying to contact Mum, but she was at work didn't answer.

Eventually, I ended up in the park next to the shopping centre because I didn't feel like driving and I finally got onto Mum, who I didn't speak to for all that long, but it was enough to get me back in the car and home.

Unfortunately, when I got home I discovered I'd left one of my shopping bags behind the in the park! O.O And it had my milk and bread in it! So I hurried back in the car to get it, fortunately it was still there, but I'm a bit uncertain about the milk - it was a humid day today and it must have been sitting out there for an hour. Is it safe to use in my cereal? Or at all? Anyone know? Please advise.

I also got stamps for my Christmas cards, but I didn't get around to drawing any today, do'h! I need to get onto that otherwise they won't arrive in time!

Oh! And great news, my Santa lights are working! I thought they weren't earlier, but obviously it wasn't quite dark enough when I first went out to check. They're so cute! I'll get a photo to show you later.

And I'll have to put the memes off again because I need to start work half an hour earlier so I better get to bed now, I don't think I've been getting enough zzzs and that might be behind my problems today.


Oh! And my legs are much better, Dr Google you're such a pessimist.

11:50pm: I'm exaggerating a bit, but I'm working hard on catching up, today's word count is supposed to be 45,000 words, here's were I currently stand...



41424 / 50000 words. 83% done!

Not too bad...I hope, although there's now only three days left, here's hoping that I can be productive this weekend! I hoped to do more writing today, but I ended up not getting home until almost 5:30pm because I went to the doctor to see about my acne - which doesn't seem to be going away. Unfortunately, I didn't think I needed to make an appointment, but apparently medical centres in Dee Why don't really do walk-ins, the first one said they couldn't see me until 4:40pm and it was only 3:10pm then so I went to the other one that said someone could see me at 3:50pm so I decided to go with them since I am trying to finish my library book.

As it turned out I didn't get seen until 4:40pm anyway! So that was rather irritating, but on the plus side the doctor said I didn't need a referral to a dermotologist right off the bat, he said I should try out this benzoyl peroxide stuff to see if that would clear things up first. Rather awkwardly, I could have just got that over-the-counter, whoops. I used it first time this evening, fingers crossed it does something! The pimples on my face are refusing to go away even after a week, it's most uncool.

And finally before I rush off to bed, I had a bit of a scare today when I realised I didn't have my Misfit on my person! I figured it must have fallen off in the car, but I only just now remembered to go down and check under the seats, but alas it wasn't there! However, I looked in my other bag and there it was, what's up with that? Oh well at least it wasn't lost because that would have sucked.

And on a final note, I made lasagna tonight woohoo! Always very delicious. :OD

Right, I'm off to bed I need to catch up on my zzzs! Especially since I've got work tomorrow.

For now, goodnight!
