11:27pm: Indeed! I finally got around to making a card for the occasion! I pride myself on my homemade cards, but I've been slacking on them lately. But I made one for Mum, yaaay! Although not for my little bro, who's birthday was yesterday. I thought I was going to see him at the Mother's Day Brunch at my Uncle's place but alas he's sick and wasn't able to come (sick for your birthday, that suuucks), so I called him to wish m a belated birthday. I left him a message at first since he didn't answer, he called me later though.

Sadly the weather was not very nice today, all rainy in fact when I drove over to my uncle's place it was totally bucketing down, I couldn't even hear the radio over it! Luckily, it let up but it was still pretty dreary.

However, work at the library was still pretty busy because it was Code Club day, which is a monthly computer thing that is popular with kids - there were thirty of them there this time! However, my feet were positively aching by the end of the shift. However, they're fine now...so I don't know if this is a sign of an issue with the shoes or if I'm just adjusting to the orthodics or what? It's puzzling I tells ya! The shoes are stiffer than the ones I had before, so maybe I just need to break them in?


What else to report? Not much, which is good since it is getting late and I should be getting ready to hit the hay and since I'm at my parental units' place I need to get the couch ready to lie on :OP

Before I do that though...drumroll please...a Meme!

I have two, three mornings a week I'm a personal carer for Mrs S, I've been working for her for nearly two and a half years now, wow!

A house show Mum recorded, we enjoy watching the house shows together on Sunday :O)

6. What is your favorite sport to watch on TV? Figure skating for the win!

7. What is your favorite drink? Iced water...or iced chocolate.

8. Have you ever dyed your hair? Nope, I'm too lazy to do it myself, too cheap to have it done at the hair dresser and I wouldn't want to mess it up and be stuck with it!

20. What is your favorite flower? (Ugh. Quite the note to go out on. But hell, we steal the questions. I guess you get what you pay for.) I love red roses! :OP

11:28pm: Aussie Style! Yeah! I do forget that it's on but I managed to remember it today and it's pretty hilarious. I do love me some good improv and all the best games are there...Scenes from a Hat, that one where you have to change the last thing you said...I even saw the one with the three dates a few weeks back. I've yet to see News Anchors, though I hope that comes up soon! Although they put it on so late I'm not sure if it's actually getting a lot of viewers, which means it might get cancelled, to which I say boo.

Anyway it just finished so I switched over to 9Life for my house show and the show before was still on and damn this guy on it looks a lot like Biff Tannen, it's rather creepy to be honest.

Moving along, I've had abdominal discomfort all damn day, checking my app I think the middle of my cycle is coming up, not the ovulation pain again! Because that's just a pain in the...ovary :OP I also had a headache this morning, but two paracetamol helped wit that, I don't think I got quite enough sleep though, so better make sure not to do that tonight.

Not much to report, except that I didn't finish the library book that's overdue and on hold, do'h! I actually drove to the library this evening hoping I could finish it and return it, but nope it was going to take too long and was it was getting dark, not to mention the library had already closed by that point. So I'll have to do it tomorrow morning before head over to M and Grandpa's for Canasta and lunch.

But oh I forgot to mention, I found my Marge Simpson glass last night, it was next to the sink the whole time! I have no idea how I missed seeing it! I need to get my eyes checked!

Right, before I wrap this up let's have another Meme:

:The Cannon Fodder Questions:

1. Is there someone you'd like to be kissing right now? Nope.

2. When you're being extremely quiet, what does it mean? I'm either really upset, nervous or just gone to sleep (but I talk in my sleep apparently so that may not last for long! :OP)

3. What are you listening to right now? House Hunters International good times, good times.

4. Are you a big fan of thunderstorms? Not really, thunder scares me.

5. Do you believe in perfect? Like a perfect day? Or a perfect person? Yes to the former, no to the latter (unless we're talking about Jesus or something). But hey not everything has to be perfect.

6. Are you a jealous person? I don't think so? I have no idea to be honest! I've never had a relationship.

7. What was the first thing you thought this morning? "Man, that was a weird dream..." I've kind of forgotten what it was now though, I think I was at Plushy's new skating school though!

8. What do you think about when you are falling asleep? Nothing much...probably just that I have good dreams!

9. Are you satisfied with what you have in life? Eh...pretty much, although I could use more hours at the library. Why is the employment market so unkind.

10. Do people ever think that you're either older or younger than you actually are? Ha, ha, younger, all the time younger! I don't wear make-up so I guess I look pretty young. Although people have stopped asking if I've just finished high school, now I get what uni course are you studying, LOL.

11. Do you think men truly understand women? Eh, dunno, but do women truly understand men? :OP Or anyone truly understand anyone?

12. How about women understanding men? Oops, pre-empted this question, but see above.

13. Did anybody ever call you handsome or beautiful? Nope, I have been told I'm pretty though.

14. What is one fact about the last person that called you? Uh...she's my boss.

15. Other than your current one, tell us about the longest relationship you have had either a romance or a particular good friend. When I was a kid in Dubbo, I had one best friend, we got on super well and I was so happy to have one good friend (I had others, but as a general rule I have trouble making friends) and it sucked when my family and I moved to Sydney. We eventually lost touch, but I still remember the good times.

Okedoke, time to hit the hay, although I've got one last musing about the current ad I'm watching - it's about a doorbell and camera system that works through wi-fi so you can see who's at the door from postmen to burgulars, but...why would a burgular ringt the doorbell?! Or does the camera just send video whenever anyone gets near to your house? Sounds annoying...

Your thoughts on this matter would be appreciated. :OP

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...

: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!

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...

11:36pm: Indeed so, but it was cooler today so there's that. And despite the cloudiness I think quite a few people went to the beach because it was a rather quiet day at the library. Which did make the time start dragging around 3pm, but one 4pm rolled around things went faster - although that could have been because I decided to check on incomplete items (which is part of my job - I get extra money for doing it :O)

I didn't actually get around to the little bro's this morning because I stayed up way too late and then lazed around too long so that had I been caught up in traffic on the way back I probably would have ended up late for work. So instead I'll be going over tomorrow afternoon to meet with the little bro, have an early dinner (of hotdogs!) and measure some stuff. Fingers crossed it all works out, especially since I found out that my lease actually ends on 28th January, so if I'm going to move out I really need to give notice ASAP.

Not much else to report, which is good since I do need to haul butt! I keep being five or so minutes late for work with Mrs S so I'm getting up earlier tomorrow which means going to bed earlier so I can get my 8 hours!

Still, I am trying to catch up on Memes, so before I flee...

11:09pm: Yes indeed! The Big Day! Although not really. :OP

Although I'm rather disturbed to realise...I'm now the same age as Bridget Jones was in the first book/movie. OMG! That's so weird. I'm gonna freak out when I'm 47 (you Backies know what I'm talking about), I'm sure!

Anyway! I received many birthday well-wishes and the Home Library Service at Dee Why even sent me a birthday card! Although for some reason they sent it to my old, old address (the granny flat at Mum's friend's house), so I better make sure that's updated when I got in next!

I also got an SMS from my brother Chris, and my big bro Mike sent me an email as did my sister-in-law which was really nice. And Mum called me later on as well.

And of course, all my Facebook friends! Thank you to you all!

So this morning I went to work at the library where I've picked up some more shifts and there was a birthday cake too! It wasn't actually for just me, another staff member had their birthday a few days before too. It was a flourless lemon cake, but pretty good for all of that.

After that it was off to M and Grandpa's for lamb cutlets and canasta! As it happened there was another surprise, for dessert Vienetta Cakem, which if you're unfamiliar is this! It's as delicious as it looks.

I also ended up winning the Canasta! Go me! Although, I did make a big mistake in the second hand that I was practically kicking myself over, and we kept getting the same amount of canastas etc. etc. Soo it wasn't an easy win by any means.

After that, I popped by Mum and Dad's to see Dad and find out how the carpet cleaning went...except the cleaning hadn't happened! Which was very annoying, except it did allow Dad to take the machine over to my little bro's place and clean his carpets there - they were looking rather sad. Since my little bro is trying to find a new flatmate this might help make a better impression on prospective viewers. Fingers crossed.

And now I see that it's quite late so I better get going, except for one last meme:

:The Musical Perceptions Questions:


1. Where did you grow up? Canberra for the first five years, Dubbo until I was 10 and then Sydney from 11 onwards.

2. Where do you live now? Sydney, the biggest city in Australia - but interestingly enough not the capital.

3. What do you think about religion? I'm Catholic, but I don't buy into the whole "Gotta convert everyone, one true religion" thing.

4. When did you start using online social media? I guess it was around 1999 if you count ICQ, if you mean online journals and stuff that'd be 2003.

5. What did you study to be? A librarian, it's proving to be difficult.

6. How are you at this point of your career? See above. I've got two jobs though so I guess it's not all that bad.

7. Do you use your real name on a blog? Not my full name, but my first name, yes.

8. Do people you work with read your blog? One of them does, apparently, or at least sometimes. I'm not sure how they found it to be honest. But I haven't said anything too horrible on here.

9. Are you on the job market? Yes, sort of.

10. If you could go back in time to meet someone famous but now deceased, who would it be? I'd like to meet George III! I have no idea what he'd think of me though.

And now I'm off, but dang it I missed out on doing my Russian tonight, sigh! Why the fail me.

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.

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)

11:03pm: Indeed so, it was the first day of normal operations back at the library so the books were coming in fast and furious, to say nothing of the ones that were in the overnight chute - apparently so many ended up in there a whole lot of them got crushed. Last I saw of them they were stacked underneath the returns desk in the hope they'd flatten themselves out again. I guess I'll find out how it worked out tomorrow afternoon.

I'm also relieved to report that my feet held up pretty well! Although the weather was a bit cooler today so I wore my pinstripe pants which meant that I could wear socks with my shoes and thus didn't have to worry about foot sweat. However, it's supposed to warm up a bit tomorrow soooo...

After finishing work I headed off to the Mall to get Mrs S's new towels and man was there a lot of them! They're the big fluffy kind so fortunately they weren't too heavy, but they were unweildy to carry and I had to wait for a while at the counter while the sales lady went looking for where they'd been set aside. It took so long actually that I began to worry they might not be there at all!

I also went looking at JB Hi-Fi about maybe getting a new Blu-Ray player, or maybe one of those aerial boxes that pick up TV through the net. But I decided not to purchase anything, since I still don't know if there's some other way to solve things with the TV and all.

I did end up buying the sunglasses that go over glasses from the Cancer Council so that was great! There weren't any green ones, but I got this cool purple leopard print ones. Niice. However, I discovered that the glasses case my Grandpa bought me is too small for them. Do'h!

Also, I forgot to bring the fifty bucks, better put that in my wallet or I might lose it in my room! :O/

Righto time to try and catch up on some Memes... )

Oh crap, look at the time, almost midnight and I have to get up earlier than usual tomorrow! That's some fail on my part.

Oh and I almost forgot I did get to go swimming today! Even though it wasn't with Mum, she forgot about me! So rude. :OP

So yeah I better hit the hay now! Goodnight all!

10:29pm: There was just a huge thunderstorm here in my suburb (and surrounding areas I assume), with flashes of lightning and bolts across the sky with big gust of wind and rain pelting down. I got a bit scared I have to say, I've never been a fan of lightning, although at least unlike last week I wasn't in my car at the time Still it was the sort of storm that makes you realise how easy it could stop a clock or send a DeLorean back in time. ;O)

Moving on, I'm wondering if I should send my application in for the temporary job at Mona Vale Library tonight or wait for tomorrow. I've pretty much written the cover letter and everything and I do wonder if waiting until the last day is bad form, but on the other hand I'm not sure it actually is ready. although as it turns out my mother might not be able to come over tomorrow after all (it seems she forgot that I work Friday mornings) so it's not like I can show it to her. I did think about calling the person on the ad though ust to see if they're looking for anything in particular or at least make sure they know that I'm interested!

Anywho...what else to report? Well I did my volunteering today, which was good, I caught the bus and actually read my book! (Usually I end up looking at my mobile instead :OP) I did get a bit concerned when I realised I'd managed to leave my drink bottle back at the Granny Fat but thankfully it didn't end up being that hot.

I can't think of what else to write, so here let's have a meme before a wrap this entry up.

Memes please! )

That's right I remembered another important and not so good news I received today...my rent hasn't been coming out of my account! No wonder I've had so much money lately! And now my savings are horribly depleted. Son of a bitch. Good thing I had it though... still that sucks. :O(

Right, work tomorrow then the psychiatrist so off I go!

10:14pm: I'm trying to upload the videos I took of that epic Christmas lights house that I went to see on Saturday night and promised to show you all, but it's taking a whole damn hour to upload a one minute video to YouTube! Seriously, what the Hell? It's the beginning of the month so I can't have run out of bandwidth and as a general rule the internet is fast enough here, I mean I can watch live TV (although it's not of the best quality).

The only other thing I can think of is the fact I'm downloading from my external hard drive, although it's USB 3.0 which I've been led to understand is quite speedy when it comes to transferring stuff. I guess the only way to find out if that's true is to load the second of the videos onto my actual laptop and upload it from there. but I'll have to wait and see if that can be done...the current video still has 16 minutes to go!

Anywho, what else to report? Well, it was damn hot today! Which was why when Mum said she was going swimming late this afternoon I left my house to go back to the parental place to do so. And before that I've had my air-con running, which I'm relieved to say has been working at keeping me cool. I also went shopping after working at Mrs S's today, incidentally I was surprised they didn't have their air-con on, I actually considered asking them if they could! But it might have just been the nature of the work I do - stuff with the sliding sheet, making the bed etc.

I wonder what it will be like tomorrow? We ended up having quite the thunderstorm as I was driving home from Mum and Dad's bolts of lightning was arcing across the sky. I'm not a big fan of lightning so I was a little but worried, but thankfully I didn't get rained on, although apparently there was quite a storm in these parts, I got an email saying that Mona Vale Library had lost all power! Yikes. Actually, I think it might be raining right now...

I've just checked my phone and apparently it's only going to be 24 degrees tomorrow, which is hardly short weather (although I might do so anyway, since the weather is weird this time of year) and also cloudy, which is not good news for me because I bought some new solar lights, sadly they're not like my Santa lights, which don't seem to exist anymore, but they're super cute! They're called silhoelette lights and as you can see there is a Santa included. However, I can't see if they look like that because there wasn't enough sun today to power the solar battery, bummer.

Anyway, I have to head off soon as Mrs S needs me to come in tomorrow morning and a bit earlier than usual as well and you know what that means, I gotta go to bed earlier.

But before I head off, let's have a Meme or two )

Okedoke, it's past 11 now so off to bed!

Tomorrow I'll hopefully have those videos and I'll link to some of the pages I've coloured from the Pusheen colouring book.

10:15pm: Well maybe not everyone, but I sure do! I cant figure out if it's because it's nearly that time o' the month, or because the weights I lifted at the gym on Friday were too heavy or because of my new shoes. Or perhaps a combination of all three... Either way it sucks.

Although it does seem to come and go, right in the middle of work today my poor lower back was so sore I wasn't sure if I wanted to drag my butt to church, however by the time I finished I felt all right, so off I went - although Dad ended up backing out. The new priest was there, he gave a good sermon and spoke really well, which is impressive when you consider English is his third language, he was born in Africa.

Moving along, the show I'm watching called Zombie House Flipping is very amusing, I have no idea how 'real' it is, but right now the team is trying to deal with an alligator in the pool. Why they haven't just called Animal Control...

Oh! And I got the frosting for the cupcakes done this morning and even used my special frosting kit to pipe it onto the cupcakes. They looked very fancy and I got an SMS from Mrs S earlier this evening to say they went down a treat and there's some left over for me to enjoy, yaaay!

What else? Um...I did have something to say, but I wanted to finish my Russian for today (because I keep leaving it too late and end up skipping a day) and now I've totally forgotten what it was! Hmm, I suppose it mustn't have been important.

So let's do some Memes instead )

Right, it's almost 11:30pm and work's tomorrow so I better wrap this up and get ready to hit the hay!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Away We Goooo! )

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

So goodnight!

10:56pm: Or perhaps lessons in not leaving stuff on your bed, because I managed to give myself a very nasty scratch from my pacer! Ouch! Also uncool, the weather's supposed to get warm this week and this is going to be quite visible if I wear a t-shirt or short-sleeved shirt. Damn how long is it going to take to heal I wonder? It looks like I came worse off against a cat! Which is probably a better story than been attacked by a pacer...

Moving along from embarrassing injuries, it's been an ordinary ol' Monday with not a lot to report. I did get to the gym though which was good! Except I forgot to bring my water bottle up with me and I didn't feel like going back to the parking lot to get it so I ended up getting rather thirsty. Boo.

After finishing up at the gym I headed home where Plushenko the fish continues to thrive in his tank, a welcoming sight :O) Although I probably should have gone to the supermarket because as I discovered I didn't actually have any proper food in the house. Whoops, not to self: go food shopping tomorrow.

Also on the "to-do" list tomorrow is volunteering at Dee Why Library, since I'm working at Mona Vale Library on Thursday. Apparently, they really need me to help with the selection of books for the home library patrons, so it's nice to be needed. Although...with that in mind they really should hire actual staff to do that. It kind of sucks that they don't, with under-employment being such a big problem in Australia. Obviously, the Government isn't providing enough funding for libraries, hmpf, what else is new?

All right, rant over then...after all I want to catch up on Memes after all, even though Friday5 is still down.

The (Other) Friday Five

19/08/2016

1. What’s your favorite way to stay cool in late summer? Going for a swim then going into an air-condition room!

2. Are you ready for autumn yet? Fortunately, we've headed into Spring so I don't have to be worried about that. :OP

3. What do you have left to do before summer ends? Well, Summer hasn't arrived yet, but I sure as Hell need to meet up with some friends before it does! I've been very anti-social lately, not fun.

4. Has it been a good summer for you? N/A

5. Have you started Christmas shopping yet? Ha ha, no. I have no idea what to buy to be honest, I'm a terrible gift buyer.

26/8/16

I feel like I've done this one so...

8/09/16

Stardate 11609.09: Star Trek 50th Anniversary


Star Trek isn't my bag so I'll skip this one too...

16/9/16

1. What are five good health habits for one to have? Drink lots of water, exercise, have a carrot a day, laugh and relax.

2. Name any four things that you want to do before you die? Visit New York City, see Plushy skate, write a book and own an apartment.

3. Name three songs to which you know all the lyrics? Uh...I'm not sure, sometimes I think I know all the words and then when it comes time to sing. :OP

4. What were you doing two hours ago? Watching TV and chatting to my friend Steph on Facebook *waves*!

5. If you could smash and break one thing and one thing only, what would it be? Donald Trump's face - no that's rather violent. I'd smash his desk instead, it'd be cathartic.

Right, it's nearly midnight so I better be off! I did promise not to stay up too late even if I have the day off the next day.

anonymoose_au: (Whoops)
10:39pm: So today was the interview and I have to say...I don't think I did so well. Obviously I didn't prepare enough for it, because they were the same sort of questions I've had at such interviews before, but that didn't stop me from basically "uming" and "uhing" my whole way through. They told me to expect an answer back in about two weeks, but like I said I don't hold out a lot of hope. Damn shame because it's actually a full-time job with weekday hours so I'd be like a proper employed person.

In other news before I headed out to the interview the landlord came by to give me a letter and check that the smoke alarm was working, which it was. I also showed him the dripping tap, but unfortunately it doesn't look like he's all that sure how to get the top of the taps off either. Damn, should have got that plumber in here after all.

Huh, interesting I'm watching a doco called Body Hack and have just found out that you don't even have to be French to get in the French Foreign Legion. Not that I'm going to join, I'd last approximately point one millisecond, meanwhile the guy doing the doco is like "I'm so old compared to these guys..." which he is, but damn doesn't mean he's not fit since he ends up surviving the course and would have made the legion!

Also, Duolingo is being a bit of a pain here, I'm not sure if it's due to my phone running out of space or the storm that's outside. Maybe a bit of both? Very annoying. Especially since I'm still trying to get to bed at 11:18pm as advised by my UP app.

And also, I was going to do some memes, but Friday5 doesn't seem to be working, but I guess I'll just do the other Friday Five.

The (Other) Friday Five

15/7/16

1.How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Uh...like how old do I feel? I guess like 16? Which is like half my age which is kinda sad.

2.Which is worse, failing or never trying? Never trying I suppose, although failing sucks rather hard :OP

3.If life is so short, why do we do so many things we don’t like and like so many things we don’t do? Because you gotta eat, man and most people's dream jobs aren't really profitable.

4.When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done? With how much I talk definitely the former!

5.What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world? The inequality, it sucks that so little of us have so much. :O(

29/7/16

1.Do you believe in reincarnation? Nah.

2.Have you ever felt that you knew someone the first time you met them? Not that I recall.

3.Have you ever visited a foreign country or city for the first time and found that you knew exactly where things were? Pft, I barely know where things are in the place I live in all the damn time, so no.

4.Have you ever looked in the mirror and 'seen' a different face? Nope, although I have looked at photos of my niece and I think she looks a Hell of a lot like my mother's baby photos. Except...I don't remember seeing photos of my mother as a baby. Weird.

5.Is the belief in UFOs, aliens, physic powers, etc, growing because the belief in religion is dying? I dunno if it's actually growing, it's probably about the same it's just more noticible because of the internet.

Right, better be off now otherwise I won't make my bed time, which is more important than ever because I didn't sleep too well last night, I think I was nervous about the job interview, hmpf!

10:30pm: Heh, I'm pretty sure this episode of MacGyver I'm watching was the inspiration behind the Simpsons quote from an episode all those years ago where Selma married Sideshow Bob.

Although there's another episode to do with Native Americans, so it could have been from that. Either way, I am amused.

Moving on, today after work I decided to take a sample of my water to the Brookvale Petstock and see if it was ready for a fish. And it was! So I decided no time like the present, so may I introduce Plushenko! I decided to just go with that rather than Nedshenko because that name seems to be a bit cursed.


Well, now that I've watched the whole episode I see it has nothing whatsoever to do with that quote...in fact, I don't think MacGyver ever did anything that relied on the Earth's gravitational pull, but hey sounds like something Mac would say. :OP

And I just got distracted by stuff...again, it's that time o' the month, though so I'm gonna blame that for today's lack of attention. :OP

Now, I should catch up on Memes again, but I can't remember where I left off on the Saturday 9! Seems it was July, huh, I could have sworn I caught up more than that...guess not.

So let's do it )

Okedoke, I better wrap this up, even though I don't have to work tomorrow I should keep my sleep schedule the same, plus I do have stuff to do tomorrow!

That reminds me...I need to email one of the library managers, because he called me today while I was at work with Mrs S about a shift, but I couldn't call back until I finished work and by then he'd called someone else. Boo, that was going to be my first shift with the former Warringah Council libraries in forever! I should update them about my new schedule anyway.

Right off I go now, goodnight all!

10:45pm: For sure! Today it got up to 30 degrees if you can believe that! Climate change is a hoax my ass.

And here I was with no shorts! Like I said they're in M and Grandpa's garage, or at least they were, lucky for me that during her morning work Mum had gone past there and picked it up bringing it back to her and Dad's place. How did I know this, because I ran into her at Warriewood Square! What a coincidence! One of her clients was at the podiatrists so she had gone there to exchange some socks and have lunch, which we ended up having together. Nice. :O)

After that I went and got my box, returned home, spent quite some time trying to get the air conditioner set up properly, I swear though there's no way to get it in the window behind the TV cabinet...there's just no way! I had to stick it in the other window instead, which as I mentioned does necessitate having it ajar.

Once I figured that out I headed out to the gym because I've been slacking on that and the air con there is a proper one, so I figured it was best to go there in the hottest part of the day than otherwise.

In other news, before I headed to the gym the landlord came to the door, apparently they have to turn the water off tomorrow so a plumber can do some repairs. I hope it won't be all day! Fortunately, I'll be able to shower tomorrow morning as the guy won't arrive until after 8am and I have to start at that time tomorrow, but the landlord's not sure when he'll finish. I guess if the worst comes to the worst I could go over to the parental units place. Although I'm planning to go to the gym again and maybe to Mona Vale to return some library books and such.

Anywho, with the earlier start required tomorrow I better wrap this up, but here's one Meme for the road!

Sunday Stealing

:The Gongerling Meme:

1. You’re building your dream house. What’s the one thing that this house absolutely, positively MUST HAVE? (other than the obvious basics of course) An ice rink! That'd be some totally cool shit...I could go skating every day! :OD And maybe learn to go backwards since I wouldn't have to worry about running into other people.

2. What is your dream car? The one I've got now! A green Mazda 2, the only thing missing is the reversing sensors.

3. What is your favorite website that isn’t a blog. Well, I'm really enjoying Reddit - LOL I'm so behind on stuff.

4. iPhone or Droid, which do you want/have? Droid, 'cause Apple sucks :OP

5. When you’re feeling down or lonely or just generally out of sorts, what do you do to cheer yourself up? Read a book, or watch a TV show I like. Or ring my mother up if all else fails!

6. Tell me about something or someone that you love that most people seem to hate. Well, I liked Kevin Rudd the former Prime Minister, although everyone I know seems to think he sucks!

7. What did you want to be when you grew up? Not a grown up apparently. :OP

8. Would you go on a reality show if given the chance? Fuck no, those things are bullshit. Well...I might go on House Hunters, but that's it.

9. Who was your favorite teacher when you were growing up? (Grade school, Middle School, Jr. High or High School only.) Ooo...that's a toughie, but I'd go with my Year Five teacher Ms Jones, the first to encourage my creative writing and a really nice teacher who told off the boys who picked on me. She also arranged for me to be in class with my best friend in Year 6 (after we'd been separated for 3 years! I had no friends in my classes), sadly for me, our family moved so that never happened. :O(

10. You get one pass to do something illegal or immoral. What are you gonna do? Uh...man, I can't think of anything I want to do.

11. What were you doing 10 years ago? I was 22 - yikes! And hunting for a job in the library sector while working a part-time job at document destroying place. I was living back at home with my parents and pretty much doing the same crap as I am now...although there was a lot more writing...man where'd my writing mojo go?

12. By this time next year, I ... will hopefully have saved up quite a nest egg for the apartment and with any luck be working more hours at a library. Oh and the building where my apartment will be will have started construction hopefully!

13. What is something that you need to do but you've procrastinated on? Question is what haven't I being procrastinating on...in all seriousness though, cleaning my Granny Flat, which I gotta get onto tomorrow!

14. Which fictional, TV show character you would shag anytime? No interest in shagging so...

15. What is your greatest pet peeve? Weird British pronounciations - "VIT-amin" and "ME-mo"

16. Tell me about your most recent trip of more than 100 miles? Hmmm, I guess that'd be going to my Aunt Weed's house maybe earlier this year? Although I'm not actually sure that's more than 100 miles, so failing that going to my graduation in Bathurst back in late 2014.

17. Which do you use more often, the dictionary or the thesaurus? To be honest, I don't think I've ever actually used a thesaurus, so...the dictionary.

18. Do you have a nickname? What is it? I have a few! The most well known is "Moose"

19. What are you dreading at the moment? Nothing...knock on wood!

20. Do you have a meme you think we should steal? (Yes, an old trick. But c'mon now. I gotta give it a shot. It's a lot harder to find memes now. But it's ok to answer "You're lazy" to call it a day.) Nope sorry...although I have noticed a decrease in the number of memes, sad.

OK, definitely gotta go now!

9:50pm: Aww nuts, I bought the first two seasons of Modern Family on DVD while I was at the SupaCentre today buying the tea spoons that had finally come in at the homewares shop there only to discover just now that the Season one's DVD lock is still engaged! Which means I can't open the case, bugger. Also it sounds like it might be sort of...broken inside, which sucks because that means whenever you open it (once I can do that) some of the DVDs will fall out!

And now I've got to find a way to get the case open, one possibility could be the library, although I'm not sure if Mona Vale has a DVD unlocker thing - I know there's one at Dee Why Library - or used to be at least. I'm not sure I an really be bothered to go to Dee Why Library tomorrow before I head off to work. Either way I don't feel like hiking all the way back to the SupaCentre to get it open! I suppose if all else fails I'll have to go to the JB Hi-Fi at the Mall, which is still kind of annoying.

Moving on, I didn't go ice skating after going to the SupaCentre because I'm at Mum and Dad's house for the night - so I can go to church with them early tomorrow - and with Daylight Saving kicking in tonight that means a whole hour is lost and I wanted to get the most out of my wi-fi time here.

As it is it's technically all ready 11pm! I have to go to sleep as soon as House Hunters Renovations finishes, in which case I should do a few more Memes and wrap this up.

That's My Fund-Day


1. What’s the last thing you didn’t want but purchased anyway because someone’s kid was raising funds for something? Hmm, nothing comes to mind. After all fundrasing often involves chocolate and I'm good for that. :OP

2. What’s something you’re always happy to buy when kids sell it as a fundraiser? LOL see the tail-end of my answer above.

3. What was the last fundraiser you participated in? Man, I haven't been involved in one since school! And that's...gulp 13 years ago now.

4. What are your feelings about the endless cycle of fundraising? It seems...annoying? But I guess how else can one get money? Especially if it's a non-profit.

5. What’s something people don’t sell as a fundraiser but really should? Ummm...books? But I guess technically they do that because you can buy them at Vinnies etc and the money there goes to charity. I guess because of the obesity issues in Australia it should be fruit!

23/9/16

All Over


1. What would you like right now to be coated with? Like this moment? 'Cause that question doesn't really make a lot of sense! I wouldn't say no to a Cherry Ripe though.

2. What’s something you recently slathered on something else? I slathered a whole lot of butter on Mrs S's toast on Friday morning - she likes it that way.

3. What’s something you purchased recently whose purpose is to cover something? Uh...I have no idea honestly? I bought some cling-wrap but it was so long ago I don't remember when!

4. What do your current bed linens look like? Dark green sheets and pillow case, with a New York City Skyline doona cover and pillow case and a dark green U-Shaped pillow case.

5. Under what circumstances did you last wear some kind of gloves? At Mrs S's place for personal care , gotta keep it clean. :OP

30/9/16

Impromptu


1. What’s something you’ve created while improvising in the kitchen? I'm not an improvisor so I got nothing. Oh wait! Thickened cream on grapes is really delicious, but that's probably a known fact. :OP

2. In your work, how good are you at winging it? Pretty good...although I do prefer clear instructions!

3. When you travel, how much of your trip do you make up as you go? Don't travel much, although the last time I did I pretty much winged it the whole time!

4. How structured are your plans for this weekend? Since I work on the weekends, quite structured in terms of that, but after work I'm pretty free.

5. What’s something you’ve discovered while wandering around in your neighborhood? My neighbourhood's very quiet and is just residential property, so...nothing.

Okedoke, finally caught up on the Friday5! Round of applause, please! ;OD

And now, I bid you all goodnight!

11:20pm: Indeed! Today Mrs S gave me some interesting news, she's decided to rearrange my hours so that I still work the same amount, but across three days instead of five...or more like three and a half days. This is so the other carer can work more hours because otherwise she was thinking of leaving for another job and after everything that's the last thing Mrs S needs!

So this means I'll actually have a day off now! Praise the Lord! Although this isn't going to happen for two weeks, so...

In other news, I managed to forget about doing my laundry so the second load has only just finished now! Damn me, that's some fail, I did the darker clothes first so hopefully my work pants will be dry by tomorrow morning otherwise I'm not sure what I'll wear! Although I think I have seen my co-workers wearing jeans before so I guess I could always do that.

Hmm, I did promise a more substantial entry today, but I'm sorry to say I've once again left updating a bit too late for that, but here's some memes to make up for it!

Bring it )

Right, I better hang up my washing and get to bed, work calls tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

11:11pm: Like there's something on it, but there isn't...It's really irritating and I think I'm just making it worse by poking at it. Wait, scratch that I know I'm making it worse.

Not much to report regarding today, although I saw a very odd sight this morning where it looked like the neighbour over the back fence was doing some caber tossing! He was carrying out some big (yet apparently lightweight) logs. When I got back home after going to the gym I saw what they were for, a cubby house. Lucky kids! When I was a little kid the only cubbyhouse my brothers and I had was an old chicken coop, but there were mosquitoes or some sort of stinging insect inside so you could only be in there for a few minutes at least. This one appears to have a slide!

Also there was something else I meant to write about yesterday, but I forgot and now...I've forgotten what it was again, LOL great fail on my behalf. But I guess it wasn't anything super important.

Oops, I let myself get distracted so now it's past 11:30 and I really need to turn in! But hey, how about one meme for the road!

Friday5

French Kiss


1. What’s your favorite kind of French fry? Shoestring!

2. Where can you get really good French toast? Dunno, it's not my thing.

3. What are your feelings about French salad dressing? Never tried it, but I don't care for most dressings.

4. What’s something you know how to say in French? And just like that I've forgotten any French I even vaguely knew. Or at least forgotten how to spell it. Er Bonjour!

5. What French films have you seen? Hmm...I can't actually think of any, unless you count that doco about airplane crashes, although a lot of that was in English...It was done in France though!

Right, on that note I'm off to bed.

Goodnight all!

10:01pm: Yes! Exciting news! I saw my parents in church tonight (I thought they went in the morning) and was able to tell Mum it hadn't come through and she's sent it over, so now for your interest here it be! You can see how it's 'L-shaped' thus making the bed area separate from the living area. Of course, there's no natural light in the bedroom area which is a bit of a drawback, but hey you don't have to walk through my bedroom so that'll be awesome.

In other news, today has been a bit annoying because I think I must have woken up in the middle of a deep sleep block because I've had tired eyes all day along with general sleepyness. What can you do? Apparently there's supposed to be an app that will set your alarm so that it won't wake you up at a bad time, but I'm not sure it would actually work without like a watch or something that actually detects if you're asleep because sometimes I fall asleep quickly and sometimes I don't.

Anyway, moving on let's try and catch up on some more Memes...finally! )

Okedoke, I better wrap this up now since it's 11:30 and my eyes are heavy, plus as always work calls tomorrow!

Goodnight all!
