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

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

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

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

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Wish me luck with my cleaning!

Goodnight all!

11:29pm: The Fed-Express! He's at Wimbledon right now, playing for what could be his 8th Title! Of course, I'm not gonna be able to watch the whole thing because it's only just started and I suck at staying up late even if it's only for one night.

He's just broken serve, but who knows what's going to happen because he's up against a tough competitor! Not Nadal, but a super tall guy from Croatia who has beaten him once. So fingers and toes.

So, I'm here at Mum and Dad's place so Mum and I can watch the Final together, Mum suggested having a Wimbledon inspired supper of finger sandwiches, vanilla cupcakes with jam and cream and strawberries and cream. Very elegant! Mum took a photo of me, but it's not my best angle, LOL! I'm also wearing the Tennis T-shirt I got many years ago, hopefully it'll be good luck.

Anywho, I better make this entry quick as time is getting on and having done my Russian yet (I forgot yesterday and lost my eight day streak, boo) and my tablet battery is getting rather low.

Plus, it's not like I have much to report, I went to church, went to work, made the cupcakes and came over here.

And whoot! Fed-Ex has taken the first set, come oooon you can do it!

And now I shall wrap this up, goodnight all!

11:12pm: Whoops, I haven't updated for a couple of days, which I totally didn't plan on, but I have a good reason! I've been writing a fan fic! It's going pretty well so far and man it's been while since the good ol' writing bug hit me. It's nice! Also in surprising news, I've actually plotted this one out mostly, which I usually never do, I hope it will actually work.

I kind of wanted to post it as soon as I finished the first chapter because I'm excited, but I put out a general ask on my Tumblr about it and one of my mutuals felt that it's better to have the story completed, just in case you want to change something in an earlier chapter. Plus, if you're going to do a chaptered story you probably should have it finished, in case you never do finish it. Nothing worse than an incomplete fan fic and I do actually have a couple of those myself. I mean I know how they end and all, but anyone who read it? Well I'm sure they're most disappointed. So get with the program, so let's hopefully avoid that.

Anyway, moving along, it was a good night hanging with my parents last night, well mostly with Mum since Dad usually turns in at like 8pm, we watched Have You Been Paying Attention?, ah so funny! I think I'll head over there on Monday nights, especially since after next week I'll be able to go to the proper bed in the spare room. Heh.

And it's getting late, and I really need to get my ass to bed as soon as Cold Case ends, because I've been staying up too late the last few weeks after watching it. So I literally need to be lyind down and ready to turn the lights out.

Not much else to report today anyway, although I did get some cleaning done, it's not quite to Mum's standard so I need to finish up that tomorrow before the Scripture class.

I've also let the deadline pass for that library job, but I'm not too bummed, like I said I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have got a call. I've applied to so many jobs in my life and to be honest I don't feel like wasting time apply for one I just don't have the skill set for. I am supposed to be applying to some jobs though, come on Moose get off your ass.

For now though, I say goodbye!

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

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

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

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

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

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

Right, off I go! Goodnight all!

11:27pm: 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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

So yeah gotta sleep.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Goodnight all!

11:41pm: Yes, I am trying to keep a schedule of updating every second day, because...uh...I dunno, I'd rather do every day, but you know me, I get distracted so easily.

So I didn't update yesterday, so today is supposed to be the day, but I've got this niggling headache which hasn't gone away even though I took some Neurofen a few hours ago. Rude! I took two tablets and everything! What's the deal? I am wholly disappointed.

Anyway, yesterday I had planned to do some stuff - maybe even ring my friend up and see her, but the weather turned from sunny to rainy half way through the day and then my eyeballs decided to go all dry and I was just in a whole lot of discomfort, grumble grumble.

That time o' the month is due today so I keep expecting it to sneak up on me any second now, but thus far it is elusive. More rudeness!

But, I did at least get some cleaning done, although it was not to Mum-standard, however poor Mum still has her cold so she couldn't be bothered to tell me off too much, LOL. I shouldn't be mean though, because she decided to go over my resume for me so I could email it to a pharmacy - there's an ad in the paper, which is lacking in any detail whatsoever so I've been procrastinating on it. Then, the case I got for my external hard drive decided to break (man, I'm having no luck with those!) and it has all my updated resumes so the whole updating was being a pain...

So I ended up emailing one of my older resumes to Mum and she sent a new one back to me, I'm not entirely sure about it actually...it seems to break all the rules of resume making I was taught during my years of job hunting. On the other hand, Mum has no problems getting work whereas I flail around so who knows. I had to add more info to it of course and Mum wanted to see it so I still haven't emailed it yet. I should check the Manly Daily to see if the ad is still in there...

What else to report? Not much, I went to Warriewood Square hoping to find some cheap Easter eggs, although like I said they don't leave them on the shelf for very long these days and I had no luck, boo! However! I remembered that IGA had eggs for quite some time, being a small independent supermarket, so after I went out to get a new case for my external hard drive (only 20 bucks!) I went via the one near my gym and there was indeed eggs - or rather bunnies to enjoy, yum! (Although the Red Tulip ones don't seem as good as these days, or at least the smaller ones don't, weird).

Righto, it's getting late now and I need my sleepy times so I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

11:41pm: Yeah, I've been doing that a bit lately, but that was because yesterday was rather crappy in so far as I managed to forget that I had a shift at the library!!

What makes it even worse is that I had put the detail in my phone, but I had put the wrong times, so when the alert popped up on my phone I thought I must have made a mistake. I did look in my emails, but there was nothing there saying I had a shift either so I figured I'd made a mistake. At least until I got a phone call at 9:45 asking where the Hell I was!

What makes this worse is the fact that the library has been closed since Friday because of Easter, so the amount of items in the after-hours return chute was totally overwhealming! And I was supposed to be there to help get through it so we could keep on top of it all.

I leapt out of bed, had a banana, showered and rushed to the library, but I was still half an hour late and one of the people who normal work in the back room had had to come up to render assistance.

So I stayed half an hour later to make up for my error, but still how humilating! Plus this is like the third time it's happened! I'm getting worried that I'll no longer be considered a reliably employee and this could mean bad things for my future career (such as it is). Ugh! Seriously me, can't I go fail somewhere else?!

After I finished work at the library I went to Dee Why to return the cruise ship book, I was going to try and finish it but...guide books aren't really meant to be read like regular books so I decided nah, I'd just return it. I took a bit of a walk around Dee Why before going to the library, including the new park which opened a few weeks ago. It was a nice sunny day so I figured, what the Hell. :O)

I did neglect to go to the gym though...which I remedied today after work with Mrs S - which reminds me I need to pick up my game there, I keep being five or more minutes late, which doesn't sound all that bad but honestly I literally live around the corner and surely I can do better!

Anyway, apart from that not much to report- tomorrow though is the ice skating show at Macquarie Centre! Yay! I hope Mum feels all right, she's had a cold and last I spoke to her she was sounding rather croaky, but then it often happens that you sound worse, but feel better. I also have to make sure my phone is all nice and charged so I (or Mum) can take video, I've also realised maybe if I can work up the courage I could get a photo with our figure skating Olympian - Brendan Kerry! LOL, there'd be some people on the figure skating board who'd be most jealous. :OP

But there's other stuff to do tomorrow - I want to go to the gym again - because I won't be able to go on Friday because I have a shift at the library - and there's volunteering at Dee Why before I go to Mum and Dad's place to head for the skating show. That being the case I better wrap this entry up and head for bed! I didn't even get 7 hours of zzzzs last night! Not cool, me.

Right, hope you're all well, but for me, for now, goodnight!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:34pm: I did plan on updating yesterday, but I had to get to bed early after Monday's night/Tuesday morning's shocking lack of sleep so I didn't. But here I am today, which I'm sure you're all super excited about :OP

Actually, I do have some odd news, I bought up the idea of paying to go on a trip to Japan to see Plushy at an ice show (and you know, see my big bro and his family) and she seemed totally onboard with it! The downside is...Mum and Dad aren't actually going to be there at the time (I thought they would be, but I miscalculated) or rather there will be a show, but it's like a seven hour drive from where they'll be - or a one hour flight, but I'm not made of money, gee!

Now Plushy will be doing a show in China in August, when Mum plans to go back to Japan after my bro's second child is born and she suggested we could catch a plane via Beijing. Which is all very cool except...Mum's going to be out of the country for a month, which I obviously can't do so I would have to fly home by myself. Which...I don't think I can do...not because I'm terrified of the plane crashing but because I don't really think I could go on such a long trip in an inescapable mode of transport without freaking out.

Also...I've kind of remembered that the other carer is going home to see her family later this year, perhaps in August, in which case it'd make life difficult for Mrs S trying to find two carers to replace!

Aaah, I dunno...what should I do I wonder? Ideally I want to go to see a Japanese ice skating show and go when Dad goes as he wouldn't stay anywhere near as long as Mum would so I can get the plane back with him. Or should I like, suck it up or get something to knock me out on the plane (do they even let you do that? What if there's an emergency?) because hey at least Mum's on board with the idea?

Bah! I dunno.

In other news, I took a rather cute photo of myself in my new Pusheen gear, but the photo's on my phone and I tried posting to Tumblr with it (so I could link to it later here) but it wouldn't post. Ruuuuude. But with only ten minutes to midnight I don't have time so you'll have to wait with bated breath. :OP

And the meme as well for that matter, LOL.

Ah well, you can only do your best.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

11:47pm: Yes! Good news indeed, my friends, after helping Mum out at the school this afternoon I mentioned the window issue to her and by the time I got back to my Granny Flat, Mum was speaking to the landlord (I got stuck behind someone at the a pedestrian crossing) and then we took a look at the window, which was rather awkward because I hadn't finished my cleaning...again. I contend it wasn't that bad though!

Anyway, at first it looked as if I was going to have to wait until tomorrow morning for the window to be fixed, but the landlord found a local glazier who came by this afternoon, took the window pane in question and bought it back an hour late as good as new! Sweeet.

In that time under the direction of Mum I got the place all nicely cleaned up, go me! And she kindly mopped the floor for me after I left to go to Mrs S's so now it's positively sparkly! All right, self, now you just gotta keep it that way!

Anywho, apart from that excitement I don't have much else to report - it's still early afternoon over in Russia so no updates on Plushy and his skating school's official opening, although I'm not sure you're all as excited as me about that. :OP

Also, I though I got enough zzzs last night - I totally slept through my alarm! - but apparently not because I'm yawning a lot and my brain is fizzled out.

So, er yeah, I'm outta here.

Goodnight all!

11:43pm: OK, that's probably quite the exaggeration, but there's a definite chill in the air today, I had to find a cardigan to put on before going to church. (I can't seem to find my black cardigan, I'm sure I have one, scratches head.)

And of course, now that daylight savings has ended (sniff!) it was already dark by the time church ended, boooo. Also it's gonna be dark tomorrow when I finish work at the library, double booo, especially since I can't actually park near the library building anymore. I hope it's not rainy, it's being pouring down on and off tonight.

Anyway, I'm sleepy because as far my body clock is concerned it's nearing to 1am, so my brain is more frazzled than usual (LOL) thus it's difficult to put together a coherent entry, not that I have much to say.

Oh, wait yes I do! The little bro and I finally got over to M and Grandpa's house to talk about the cruise - they had bought delicious scones and even had strawberry jam and extra dollop, yum! Also...a fruit cake of some kind that was made by a friend. So that was cool. Although I didn't end up getting there early enough to start a Canasta game. However, I'll be going over not this Tuesday but next Tuesday which is sure to be fun!

Right, time is getting on so I better wrap this up here, I thought I did have something else to say but I dunno.

So, I'm off to bed!

Goodnight all!

11:10pm: Ha ha, no not literally, although that would be nice, no I refer to the Figure Skating World Championships which is out right now in Helsinki Finland! And I'm able to livestream it, hooray!

I've been watching the ladies short program and very exciting news, our Australian skater has made it to the Free Program! Hooray! She really knocked it out of the park, it was awesooooome! Of course, as is common in figure skating the judging is proving weird, some ladies are getting truly unfair scores! Although, I guess I'm not a professional ice skating judge so I'm probably just talking outta my butt.

Although I'm pretty sure even when Plushy got "over"scored he still put on a good show, but I'm sure that's my biased self talking 'cause I'd watch Plushy over pretty much everyone :OP

The last group is about to come on but they have to zamboni the ice first which is why I'm taking the opportunity to update! Not that I have that much to say! Although once again Mum didn't come over to my house after the Scripture classes because it was unseasonably warm today so instead I went over to her and Dad's place with the promise of swimming!

I was rather surprised that we weren't going to the pool at the Retirement Village, but the ocean! I was a bit worried the water would be too cold - I haven't been to the beach this year really and last time I did it was rather cold...

I ended up having to wait for some time before we headed down to the beach actually because Mum's friend Mrs Lampe is back in town (her husband had to have a knee replacement) and she's staying over so Mum and her chatted for a bit, then Mum needed to book tickets to Japan in May to see the big bro and his family so it was like 5pm by the time we finally got to ocean pool! It was indeed quite cool, but I got used to it after a while and it was good times. Man, I haven't been swimming in aaaages.

I was going to stay for dinner, but it's getting darker earlier than usual so I ended up just taking the pie Mum got from the Retirement Village's kitchen (for $10 you get a meal from there) home and heating it up here.

And now, the skating is back on...except the stream I'm using seems to have stopped working! I can never tell if it's because my internet sucks (since I'm an Aussie and all) or if it's because there's a sudden influx of viewers from the US since it's morning there).

Oh wait it's going and the Russians are all in this group so I gotta watch!

Moose out!

Goodnight all!

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!

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:42pm: So in the daylight this morning the car didn't look nearly as bad as I feared, although the scratches are still most unfortunate. My poor poor car. I did actually try to use my auto paint to cover them, but I dunno how well that'll work, however, I'm in no position to spend any money fixing it, especially with the letter I got today.

Yes, when I got home from Mrs S's and the Warriewood Square and saw the envelope in the mailbox my spirits lifted! Until I picked it up and felt how light it was and then saaw it was from the Office of State Revenue.

They didn't overturn my speeding ticket! What a bag of dicks, I have sped one other time during my whole driving life (and there were no cops or cameras around soo they don't know that), it was 7 minutes before the school zone time ended and the fact that $180 is a financial burden on me (more than a shift's worth) fell on deaf ears. What a fuck-up.

Obviously, I'll have to pay it since I'm certainly not going to court to argue about it - it'd cost me even more money and time.

So yes,not the best of luck there.

However! Because my place wasn't very tidy and Mum had to go shopping for some stuff, as well as it being unseasonably warm today instead of coming over to the Granny Flat, we went to Warriewood Square where I finally found a pair of shorts suitable for work (it only took going to just about every clothing shop in the place!) and got my medication - which I hadn't been able to purchase before because my low-income card has expired so now I have to pay the full subsidised price, which is $26.

Note to self I owe Mum $150 all up now...but hey! The shorts were only $12, nice.

Right, better wrap this up and hit the hay, I've got a library shift and volunteering tomorrow so I need my zzzs!

Goodnight all!

PS Oh I almost forgot, I had the weirdest dream last night - I was on a cruise ship with my two brothers, my parents and another person I didn't know. Although shit got rather weird when Dad seemed to be drunk or something yelling at people and my brothers, the mystery person and I couldn't find our muster point during the drill.

Brain, what's your deal? LOL

11:49pm: t-shirt when I saw it in K-Mart this evening! Because, how could I not! Especially since I seem to recall seeing the same shirts last year, but not getting one only to find them all sold out when I went back!

Anyway, it's a men's extra-small, because apparently K-Mart doesn't have BTTF shirts for ladies, which seems quite the rip-off, they have plenty of Star Wars themed t-shirts in the women's section, so why not BTTF. But it fits pretty damn well, so yaaay.

Moving on, my busy day when very well! Although for some reason that may or may not be related my right thumb hurts when I bend it, I have no idea what I could have done to it. I guess I could have picked up some heavy books at work today...Man, I need to figure out some exercises for it, I've been working on my other fingers at the gym with weights, but I have no idea how to get the thumb involved.

Anywho, as you can no doubt see I left it quite a bit late to do this entry so I don't have time to say much more, but my bank card still hasn't arrived! It better come tomorrow otherwise I'm going to have to ring my mother up so she can pay for my hair to be done over the phone (although I've just realised, she's doing so relief teaching tomorrow so she may not be available, shiiit) Plus I haven't actually paid for the reunion! So you know, that'll be kind of awkward.

But, there's still tomorrow! So fingers crossed it arrives! And that my cupcakes turn out well, I got the green food colouring today, must remember not to put too much of it in, last time I used red food colouring it was a bit overkill, LOL!

And now, I bid you all goodnight!

11:11pm: Man, it's been a while since I've had this problem...at least to such an obvious extent - my right ovary be painful. Ouch. Most irritating.

Anyway, it's past 11 and as it turns out I've got a shift at the library tomorrow (yay! But I'm gonna be very very careful avoid speeding or parking tickets here!) which means I need to get up at a proper hour tomorrow.

But, today was a successful day! I managed to get up at 6:40am and got to work at Mrs S's on time - whoo! And Mrs S was ready in time to catch her bus to her appointment so good news!

Plus as I came in early I went home early and was able to do some of my cleaning - although my bedroom area wasn't quite up to my mother's standards, but not too bad and with her assistance (i.e her lying on my bed and directing me :OP) I've got the place looking really nice now. :O)

OH! And before I wrap up this entry I have super exciting news, my Pusheen goodies arrived today! :OD Awesoooome!

First up...Baker Pusheen! She's very small as she's a backpack clip, but still super adorable! Look at her little chef's hat. :OD

Second is the pencil with the 3D Pusheen Topper. Look at her perched on the top there, so cute! :OD

And lastly the sticky notes! The adorableness it kills me.

So, now I have official Pusheen stuff, so exciting!

However, the bank card still hasn't arrived, Mum has lent me 50 bucks, but I really hope the card arrives soon, I need to buy my ticket for the Reunion!

Right, like I said I have to be up at a decent hour so I shall be off now.

Wish me luck at work tomorrow!

Goodnight all!

11:28pm: Well, I stayed up way too late last night and thus didn't wake up until 10:30am today! And I was still a bit sore from yesterday (not sure if I mentioned that I was sore all over because after such a long time since I'd done weights, I had the after-work-out soreness) so I decided I'd skip the gym until tomorrow. So, I lazed about for some time until Mum rang asking if she could come over to discuss some things at which point I had to get off my ass!

Anywho, Mum bought some fish and chips and we discussed the new times for the inspections at the apartment in Newtown as well as working together to compile some quiz questions for the St Patrick's Day church celebration next week. Which Mum can't actually go to, but she offered to do the quiz and I've just seen from my email that she's volunteered my cupcake making skills! Except...I have given up chocolate for Lent, how am I meant to lick the beaters when I'm done! :OP Athough...I'm supposed to be making green frosting for them, so maybe they should be vanilla? I'll need to ask about that.

After Mum left I headed off to the library for volunteering, which went well! Although there was a bit of a worry when I couldn't find a parking spot, I thought I'd have to go back home or something! But one opened up so, phew!

Also lucky for me I'd taken out that $20 yesterday because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to buy the lasagna sheets and that would have sucked! Because I made lasagna for tonight and it was super yummy.

I also realised that I'd never changed the address on my bank account...I hadn't thought to do so because I get all my statements in electronic form, but when I realised that my new card would be going there I had to ring up the bank and get it changed. Fortunately, my bank does not suck so it didn't take me ages to get onto them, especially since I did it while at volunteering.

Right, it's getting late, so I better head off now, good thing I've done my Russian!

And now, I say, goodnight!
