11:17pm: Seriously, WTF? So rude! I can only think that I must have woken up at a bad point in my sleep cycle. Grumble, grumble.

Also, while my headache was gone by this morning (did I update yesterday? Apparently not, well suffice to say I had a terrible headache in the evening, paracetamol didn't do shit for it, bah, good thing I found some ibpruofen!) my guts decided to be unco-operative so I felt pretty eww for a lot of the day.

However! I didn't let it get me down and I won Canasta against M tonight! Whoo-hoo! Although it was an afternoon/evening game and M's never at her best at that time. We might play another hand tomorrow, we'll have to see.

Also, another great benefit in visiting M and Grandpa is getting a delicious lunch/dinner - it was lamb cutlets this time around, super delicious! With cauliflower and mashed potatoes. Belissimo!

Oh and there was ice cream with banana, rockmelon and chocolate sauce for dessert. Good times!

Right, so I was hoping this entry would make more sense, but like I said I'm inexplicibly tired as Hell so I'm gonna wrap this up here and hit the hay.

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!

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...

10:50pm: In these episodes of Air Crash Investigation that I'm watching! They must have gone to a later timeslot or something in Season 2 because the episodes in Season 1 bleeped out the swears, but now they're dropping 'f' bombs left and right, which when you think about it makes sense, because God knows if I was in such a situation I'd be swearing my head off. (Although, it should be noted that when they release transcripts of cockpit voice recorders they usually bleep out the swears anyway, so I'm not sure how Air Crash Investigation knows they were actually dropping the 'f-bomb'.)

Moving on...for some reason, it seems to be hotter in my room here then it was yesterday despite the fact it's supposed to be cooler tonight...Although cooler is sort of relative, it's was like 27 degrees today instead of 30 degrees...or maybe that's because I didn't put the boost function on, I was hoping I wouldn't have to, but it seems to be the only way to cool this place down, otherwise I'm sweating.

In other news, I'm a bit disappointed in myself, I somehow managed to sleep through my alarm this morning and didn't wake up until 9:30! This was good in terms of catching up on my zzzs, but totally ruined my plans to go ice skating today. Not only did I want to do that since I'm planning on hanging out with friends on Saturday afternoon I also wrote it down as a 'do-to' in my Cognitive Behaviour book, I hope this wasn't some sort of subconscious over sleeping to avoid going, I was feeling a bit nervous about doing so yesterday.

What else to report - well Plushenko the fish is hanging on, although he's spending a lot of time on the bottom of his tank so I'm a bit worried about that. It occurred to me that maybe the sponge for the filter in his tank needs to be changed. I forgot to find out how often it's supposed to be changed, better check that out. Although as I typed this Plushenko swam to the top of the tank to get some air so fingers crossed I think he's getting better. His fins certainly look fuller, although I'm not sure if his tail will ever come back.

So I've left writing this entry a bit late, but I must give a shout-out to Dad who bought me an absolutely awesome t-shirt while he was in Parramatta today (he has to take his car to the dealership he bought it at while it's under warranty)...he also bought a matching one for himself, we plan to wear them tomorrow to dinner which will no doubt make my mother go "Oh nooo"

Right, I have to finish off my Russian before I hit the sheets so I'll wrap this up now.

It's supposed to be really hot again tomorrow...pray for my air-con!

Oh and lastly, many thanks to [personal profile] crossover_chick for my birthday fic!

Goodnight all!

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

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

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

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

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

Obviously, the concept of backing up has eluded me.

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

For now, goodnight!

10:47pm: I mean it, because even you think about it, that thing causes bidding but trouble.

Case in point, my alarm goes off this morning but because I haven't had enough sleep, I turn it off and shut my eyes. I open them again ten minutes later, but make the mistake of shutting my eyes once more to find it's 8:18 and I start at 8:30! Shiiiit!

So it's a mad dash to get to work, with no chance for a proper breakfast and fortunately I end up being only five minutes late.

Although having typed all that I've realised that wasn't the Snooze Button, but er... The long point still stands.

In other news, the hope that a third person would be joining our little group to work with Mrs S has been dashed. She was there yesterday and was meant to come in tomorrow (which meant I'd get a day off), but she called to say she wasn't taking the job after all. I guess it wasn't enough hours, plus if I don't end up getting the library job there probably wouldn't be many hours at all. Although Mrs S and I did discuss splitting the week... Don't think that's on the table now. Hopefully, Mrs S can find someone this is super stressful for her.

Anywho, must be off so this morning's events don't repeat themselves!

Goodnight all!
anonymoose_au: (Whoops)
11:54pm: OMG, did I ever have shit luck this morning! I mean, it was shocking.

Firstly, I'd somehow turned off my phone alarm for Saturday so I din't wake up until 9:40 by someone from the library calling to see where I was!

Then in my rush to leave I forgot to put my keys in my pocket only realising as the door shut! In my one stroke of luck I caught the landlord before they headed out and they had a key to let me back in, thank God!

However, I didn't realise until getting to the library that I'd left my backpack with my wallet back at the house! Which effectively dashed my plans to go ice skating after work!

I mean come on, what the Hell was that?! To say nothing of the fact that I might lose an hour of holiday pay because since I only work on the weekends generally I'm not able to make up the time I lost by arriving at work nearly 45 minutes late. I need all my holiday time for, you know, when I actually want to go on holiday.

I'm also disappointed about the skating, I mean I probably could have gone after briefly stopping by at home to grab my backpack, but by then I was feeling pretty lazy and decided to watch some episodes of MacGyver instead.

I did though get some physical activity done when I walked up to Woolies later in the afternoon to get some food, but I probably undid that all by buying a Magnum from 7-11 on the way back, LOL. But that's how I roll.

In other news, in common refrain I really need to clean my Granny Flat up, I'm totally backsliding here! Lucky for me, Mum isn't coming over tomorrow morning with her friend, although they did come over some time today and looked in the window! Mum said she noticed my bed wasn't made, but I don't think she saw the rest... Still that's not excuse.

Moving on, I'm watching the Paralympics, it's the medley for the visually impaired, and hats off to these guys for being able to swim in a straight line! Whenever I attempt to swim without goggles and keep my eyes closed I zig-zag all over the damn place. In on memorable occurence I held up the swimming carnival at my primary school for like two minutes while I weaved between three lanes because of general crappiness at swimming and lack of goggles. Embarrassment central was only averted by the fact no-one in my House realised it was me.

Anywho, I'm also slacking on the Memes, I gotta pull up my socks with that, but not tonight because I should go to bed sooner rather than later.

I bid you all goodnight!

10:21pm: Yes indeed! You should have sen M kicking my ass this morning! She soundly kicked my butt when we picked up our game where we left off. We started another game and she's all ready ahead having managed to go out on me when I had quite a number of cards in my hand.

So like the title of this entry warns, well-rested grandparents are dangerous when it comes to card games. :OP

Anyway, can't talk too much since it's another early day tomorrow - Mrs. S keeps having to go places! - so I need to get my person to bed ASAP.

There's not much to report though... a typical Sunday for me at work, it wasn't super busy...or at least only in bursts, that always happens on the weekend, there's a lull and then suddenly all these people show up at once! Although the situation wasn't really helped by the fact that one of the computers isn't working properly, it won't connect to the internet which means the library management software won't work. I guess it'll be fixed tomorrow by the IT Department.

In other news, I'm still working on the rental application, fortunately taking a closer look I see that I don't actually need to supply six written references, only two. That's a relief, also I don't have to provide them straight away, which is good too because I don't have them yet!

Although, I do wonder about my future prospects...Mum says that she and Dad have been discussing all the new buildings that are going up and the possibility of getting one of the studio apartments. This, of course, brings up all sorts of fairness issues, like if the help me out what are my brothers gonna get? Mum says when I sell up I could just give them a third of the money - but what if I want to stay there until I'm super old? I mean there's going to be an elevator in there and everything...

But! That's thinking quite far ahead, especially since it's not like I have a full-time job that will make this financially viable for me. Tomorrow though, I need to find out about the Technical Services Librarian job at the Manly Library, what happens after 10 months when the original person returns from maternity leave. Do I move somewhere else? Or does the job and all the hours it has disappear? Because, that makes going for it less attractive.

Right, I better go, gotta make sure I get those zzzzs! I've been doing pretty well the last few days, in fact I might have been oversleeping a bit...still I better get a move on.

Goodnight all!

11:00pm: So, I changed my doona to the winter one yesterday so that I only had to have my electric blanket on for a few hours instead of the whole night.

The bad news that when my alarm went off this morning it was so nice and toasty instead of the chilliness of previous mornings that I let myself nod off and even though it felt like only a minute or so when I opened my eyes again almost an hour had passed! O.o

This meant that I had five minutes to get to work! An impossiblity so I had to call Mrs S to let her know I'd be late, before throwing on my clothes, having a quick breakfast of mandarin and a slice of cheese and hit the road.

Fortunately, since I live so close now I only ended up been ten minutes late, so phew! Still, quite embarrassing. I better be careful...once again we see the importance of jumping out of bed as soon as one's alarm goes off.

In other news, Mum was very pleased by how tidy my flat was, hooray! :OD Of course, I did come home right after work to do more cleaning (so I'm going to need to go to the gym tomorrow and Friday to get my two days a week in). Although I didn't just clean, I also overlocked all the seams of my shirt, even unpicking the lower hem so I could do that to stop it from fraying since if I do a rolled hem the shirt will be too short.

Then it was off to the school to help Mum with her class - and once again I cut it a bit close, I definitely need to leave no later than 2:05pm. Then it was back to my humble abode to wipe down the kitchen counters before Mum arrived with a treat - a piece of black forest cake to share, yum!

I also asked Mum when she'd next be swimming, she said tomorrow just after lunch, so I'll be going there after I finish up with Mrs S. There's an old exercise bike in the pool area so I guess I'll use that or maybe just go to the gym after I finish at the library. Who knows.

After Mum left I redid the bottom of the sleeves on my purple shirt and after reading the manual decided to give it a go with the buttons. I don't think I did it quite right, I had to do it by turning the flywheel manually rather than using the peddle, but maybe that's how it's done? The manual wasn't entirely clear on that point.

Right! Now it's quite late and even though I got extra sleep, the jury's still out on whether a person can actually build up a sleep bank.

So goodnight all!

Oversleeping

anonymoose_au: (I Don't Know...)
11:10pm: From my headache and general malaise, although it took a while - the headache didn't really go away until I took two paracetamol (rather than just one at one point, and a second at another...) after getting up.

It's occurred to me however, that I should get my eyes checked. It's been quite some time and I've been feeling rather squinty lately. The only problem...my private health insurance doesn't cut back in until June... unless I go to Centrelink, wait for who knows how long, to get a letter explaining I'm no longer receiving Newstart and thus can afford such things. I suppose though, nothing's stopping me from going to the optometrist and seeing what they say. Last time I had them checked I didn't actually need a new prescription, if I do I guess I can cross that bridge when I come to it? It's not like I have any work to go to on Monday.

Moving on, despite the amount of sleep I got last night - almost 12 hours, I'm still kind of sleepy today, no doubt I overslept. My brain feels sluggish too, I tried to - finally - take up the curtain that's going in front of my basket storage, but I made some kind of mistake and had to unpick it again! Very annoying.

Ooo! I've just received an email from my parents, I sent them one a few hours ago after which I found out there'd been a big earthquake in Japan. Fortunately, it was in the far south of the country so neither parental unit, brother, sister-in-law or niece have been affected.

Anyway! I need to head to bed because work's on tomorrow so I have to be bright eyed and bushy tailed for that. Plus I need to do my Russian before I go to sleep!

So on that note I shall be off! I'll let you know how the eyeballs go.

11:00pm: Indeed I can! And it went quite well! As it turns out the librarian didn't actually observe me today, she'd all ready spoken to the other librarians who I work with and just had to go over the document.

I'm pleased to report I got 'consistent' for most things, an 'advanced' for my customer service and unsurprisingly 'needs improvement' in my time keeping, because I suck at that. But I've been making sure to get to work on time or early recently, I just need to keep that up.

Finally, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with busyness, mostly because I got a call before heading to work today (after going to the gym and picking Mum up from where she dropped the scooter off for its service) from the librarian asking if I could possibly turn up at noon to Avalon tomorrow for the "No Mega-Council" thing. Of course I'm going to view the apartment - by myself since Mum has been called up to work - so I said I couldn't really but I'd do my best to get there at 1pm.

Man, I hope I can do all this...there just doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day! I'm wondering if I should quit my gym membership, even if there is no gym with a pool nearby it might be worth paying the $8 to go to that swim school and extra to go to a nearby gym. I took petrol into account, but not time, it takes about 20 minutes to get from Mrs S's to the gym.

And I'm still tired! O.o Even though my activity tracker said I got enough sleep last night! Of course, if it's right I might have got too much sleep which according to science can be just as bad.

But I better head off to bed now, otherwise I will end up undersleeping again.

Oh! And I almost forgot! Happy St Patrick's Day to everyone! I didn't wear green to Mrs S's place, I definitely remembered to wear it for the library. ;O) To be sure, to be sure.

11:31pm: And I should be snoring! :OP

Alas, I'm updating my Dreamwidth instead! Shame on me, particularly since I didn't get enough sleep last night and as a result when my alarm woke me up this morning I didn't get up right away and the next thing I knew it was 8am! I didn't even have time for a shower! All the same I was ten minutes late to Mrs S's.

In other news, I made the decision to go to the Mall in my car, figuring that maybe there'd be some parking spaces on the street what with the pouring rain and the fact it was still the holidays.

Big mistake! I forgot to consider the fact that with it being school holidays and the weather that the mall was the place to be! Shiiit. As a result I was half an hour late to work as I fruitlessly searched for a spot, I even resigned myself to paying $7 to park in one of the parking lots at the Mall, but there were so many cars in the one I entered that I gave up on that venture.

In the end I had to park in a one hour spot, but since the parking rangers rarely if ever come out in the rain I figured it was safe. Fortunately, it didn't pour too hard while I was walking from my car to the library or when I went home after finishing either.

The Mall Library was nowhere near as busy as the Dee Why Library had been, at least in terms of books returned - although it was open three days last week, although around 3pm it seemed like everyone and their dog returned their books! We managed to get through them so phew!

Anyway, I also returned my gumboots, and when I checked my messages I realised Mrs S had called me yesterday about seeing some gumboots somewhere in Dee Why, I'll have to ask her for more info tomorrow.

And I hoped to make the biscuits this evening, since it's Ephiphany tomorrow and thus all Christmas decos and whatnot should be put away, but I don't have any baking paper or a tray. I'm not sure if I should buy that or just borrow some from my parents...hmmm, maybe I'll see how the biscuits turn out with borrowed stuff. And if I prove to have a skill maybe I can invest in my own bakeware.

Operation Dress continues, I thought I'd finished tonight but things are still crooked so I have to redo it...Man, I hope it doesn't fall apart with all this picking apart! Wish me luck!


Right, I better go, no memes tonight but I'll get back to you on that.

10:28pm: Seriously, my feet are very chilly indeed, so I've put a cover over them, but the rest of me is hot...I don't get how this is possible? I mean, my feet are good at getting cold, but usually not during the summer. It's quite annoying.

Anyway, moving on from that, today was a bit of a waste, I set my alarm to wake up at 9:30am, which I did, but then I decided to go back to sleep and didn't wake up until 12:30! So that was basically half my day down the toilet. I probably would have been able to go to the gym had I really got my butt into gear, but alas I did not, so I've done pretty much nothing, in fact if my mother hadn't come by the front of my house to drop off my hairbrush I left over there I wouldn't have even gone outside! So now I'm a bit jumpy from not having done any exercise!

Well, I did go outside to check out my Santa lights, which despite the somewhat sunny day today still aren't working! :O( It looks like there's something wrong with the battery. This sucks! I did keep the box so I wonder if I should return them to K-Mart for a refund. I really like them though...so maybe I should see about troubleshooting the possible battery issue...Plus, I'm not sure I have the receipt still and they've been out in the rain. Although I guess the warranty would expect outdoor lights to have been outside.

And I've just let myself get distracted by my Russian practice and now more than an hour has passed without me writing any more on this entry! LOL talk about fail!

I have to go though because I have to help Mrs S tomorrow although since it's a public holiday I get to start an hour later, yay! But that still means I need to get to bed at a decent hour.

So on that note of ditziness I bid you all goodnight!

10:21pm: I'm so embarrassed...you know how last night I was lamenting that I wouldn't be able to watch Wimbledon because I had to get up in the morning? Fat lot of good that did! Somehow I fucked up my mobile settings, I meant to put it on silent mode except for alarms, but somehow that didn't work, so there was no alarm! When I woke up and looked at my watch I saw to my horror it read 9:30am! FUUUUUCK.

I quickly grabbed up my phone to confirm this and saw that I'd missed some calls, unsurprisingly, I was an hour late for work! And without me Mrs S can't get ready in the mornings! So I called her right away, relieved to find she wasn't upset - however, the other carer was all ready on her way so there goes a day of pay for me. Even more embarrassing since I didn't answer the phone Mrs S was worried something had happened to me. Then I called my parents since I'd missed a call from them too and Mrs S had called them when I didn't show, and they had also been worried, not that worried, Mum assured me, she was going to come over and see what was happening, but she was going to have her coffee first.

But, God damn, how do these things happen? And whyyyy? I know I've put my phone on "Priority" mode before and the alarm has gone off, why not this time? I checked the volume and it seemed fine, plus I had put my phone right next to my bed so even at a half volume it should have woken me. Life can be such a dick.

However, life can also be good! Because I still went to do my volunteering at the library today and I received some seriously exciting news, apparently the Inter-Library Co-ordinator had been speaking with a higher up and they're going to put me on the Casual Library Assistant Pool at the Warringah Libraries too!

Ohmergerd! I could hardly believe it! What amazing luck! Go me! I didn't even have to apply! Although I've been volunteering for a year so how's that for a trial! :OP

I did tell the Home Library Co-ordinator and the Inter-Library Co-ordinator my tale of woe and I've been advised to set a back up alarm, so I have using one of my old mobiles. Although, the Home Library Co-ordinator feels something that is on an old-fashion battery is better, but here's hoping the mobile phone option will work. Seeing, I'm pretty sure those old-timey wind-up alarm clock tick loudly, and I can't abide by ticking clocks.

After volunteering I rang Mum to tell her my exciting news, and it turned out that she and Dad were in Dee Why so we met up for a bit, although it was too late for lunch so all I just helped them with making a few purchases - I had to go to the newsagency to buy an A3 sleeve and also Lincraft for those seam ripper things - two of them, one for Mum and one for M. I all ready have one, but when I went to Lincraft I discovered there's green handled ones! So I'm going to keep that one and give Mum mine. Which was supposed to happen on Sunday - there's a get together with the grandparents and Great-Aunt Mary.

But as it turned out...I had to make an unexpected drive to my parents house to pick up some wine for the landlord's, which was a bit annoying, hmpf! And I couldn't even stay to have half a cupcake, since I didn't park in a designated spot, I was in front of the next-door neighbour's garage (although I think she's away, that sort of thing doesn't fly).

And the final stroke of bad luck wasn't mine, it was Jonno's on Million Dollar Minute, he was back to play for $200,0000, but alas...was beaten! What a shame! He still got $75,000 so nothing to spit at, but I liked him and was hoping he'd go all the way.

Anyway, I better wrap this up as bed is definitely calling, my mobiles better not let me down! }:O/

10:32pm: Something seriously terrible, no doubt because I was woken up way too early and actually got out of bed before deciding to go back to sleep for a few more hours and thus waking up in the middle of a sleep stage, which as I've discovered is a totally bad idea.

It also might be from my allergies, that flared up to a ridiculously degree today when I was down on the floor looking for one of my mini-screwdrivers under the couch. Not only did I not find it I ended up sneezing and coughing with my nose running so much I had to take a Clartyne, I was honestly surprised I had some. Anyway, it's supposed to be a non-drowsy formula, but apparently it can occur, so...that might be the case with me.

Or worst of all...I could be getting a cold, I sincerely hope not because technically I don't think I'm supposed to go to work in that case, because the person I work for is suscepitible to pneumonia, so I shouldn't expose her to viruses.

Whatever the case, it really sucks that didn't even manage to find the tiny screwdriver! D: I'm worried I might have vaccuumed it up when I was cleaning the other day. I have the other two that come with the set but it's still a bit of a blow.

Also, I felt so icky I almost wanted to skip church all together, but I soldiered on and felt better for it.

But Hell, am I tired and I have to get my ass to bed, tomorrow is the get together and I need to be clear in the head for that. I made the blueberry muffins as requested by Mum, although I'm kind of worried they might not be right, and the first batch might be a bit overcooked. Plus a few of them have burnt bottoms! Oh well, too late to do anything now.

And even to do Memes since I'm falling asleep right here at the computer.

Wish me luck tomorrow, good night all.

9:52pm: Yes indeed! I'm relieved to report that N in the main house was able to spend today repairing the electrical cable and put it underground again, although he has to go and get some cement tomorrow to pour on that entire area to make sure it's properly secured under there and not likely to come to the surface again any time soon.

So yes, by five o'clock all the power was switched on back up here, and I was able to plug stuff back in, although N has advised me not to have too many things running when I use the stove. Which I haven't done so yet, I had pizza tonight courtsey of N (which considering that he'd fixed my cable for me was really very nice), even though technically I wasn't going to eat meat on Fridays in Lent. Oh well.

In other news today was serious drama at Mrs S's...first thing, my mobile phone alarm didn't wake me up! So instead of waking up at 7am I woke up at like 10 to 8...and I was supposed to be at work by 8! There was no way that was going to happen, I'd just missed the bus that would allow me to do so!

And then because I had to reset my mobile a couple of weeks ago I also no longer had Mrs S's phone number, so as I walked to the bus stop I was semi-panicking wondering how I was going to let here know that I was running late. Fortunately she turned out to be in the phone book - which is the first time in a while I've found a person's number by using the residential look up on the Whitepages mobile site, usually people have unlisted numbers or something. So I managed to at least warn them, but I did say that I was running a bit late, when in all honesty I wasn't going to get there until what was pretty much my normal time. Shiiiit.

Anyway, I did rush a bit at first, but one really can't rush plus I kept getting frazzled so that didn't last for long, but everything was done in time, particularly since the nurse was late again, but at least she came. She was in a rather...er...bad mood, or at least snipping. I have no idea why.

! )

But alls well that ends well, and I was able to help clear things from the kitchen because the render was coming to render the kitchen walls so the tiles can be put up, oh and make sure Mrs S was in her wheelchair and had her morning coffee and all that.

After which I went to the gym and swimming, good times as usual and then I went to do a bit of shopping, since N had messaged to say the power wouldn't be back on until 3pm (well that had been the estimate) so there seemed no point in going home. I went to Lifeline hoping to find a green shirt, but no dice, I did find one of those string bags people use to put their shopping in rather than plastic bags.

I managed to get a garden salad from Coles for 60% off for lunch - which was good, not to mention some other neccessities ahem - BBQ flavoured crisps, LOL. However, I was very disappointed when I found a green t-shirt at the Salvation Army which I was then unable to purchase because I didn't have any physical money on me and didn't have time to get money out or to find anything else to buy in the shop that would bring my total up to $10 to us eftpos.

And the ducks next door are quacking...I'm not sure if it's because my TV is too loud or because the guy next door appears to be chopping wood out there again. It's a weird neighbourhood sometimes! :OP

And since I have to get up early tomorrow so I can go to Aldi to hopefully get those fitness watches I better do the Memes and run!

Covers

Hardcovers or paperbacks?

Ooo the eternal question, on the one hand hardbacks are more hardy and have a certain...je nas se quoi and I do love 'em. But I also like to be able to take my books with me when I'm out and about which makes hardbacks not very practical, so I generally go for paperbacks instead. Even so they often ended up getting battered in my bag, so I've taken to putting it in a plastic sandwich bag to protect it. And sometimes I'll get the paper and hardback of books I really love so I can at least have a nice one to read at home.

Take Me To The Old Playground

1. How confidently could you pick up and employ a jumprope, hula hoop. yoyo, and set of jacks? Uh... I could use the jump rope, the hula hoop wouldn't be pretty but I could probably manage a few revolutions. Yoyo...not really and a set of jacks no chance!

2. How are the playgrounds of your childhood different today? Well, in my day we didn't have all that soft fall foam stuff or fences around the playground equipment. Aside from that though...it's pretty much the same.

3. What’s a game you and your childhood friends made up, or what’s a rule you and your childhood friends made up that made an existing game more interesting or less likely to cause a fight? I got nothing...we used to make up stories together, but as far as I recall it never caused a fight.

4. What fad from your childhood do you remember with fondness or disdain? Ha ha, tamagotchis, remember those? I don't think I ever got one, but other kids in my class did and there was always kids worrying their tamagotchi might starve before lunchtime, since you couldn't use them in class obviously.

5. What playground rhymes do you remember? Umm...Miss Mary Mack and...Enie-Meenie-Mino-Mo

And I procrastinated so now I really do need to get my ass to bed! And I still haven't caught up on the Memes whoops :OP

So goodnight all! Wish me luck tomorrow.

10:27pm: A custom-made wedding dress from a fancy place, but still, geeze! WTF is that? Must be nice to be rich and be able to spend that much! Hmpf!

In other news, I didn't really pay attention but apparently there's supposed to be new rules in place for job seekers, I'm concerned, especially since I've been sitting on my ass with the job hunting as of late. Ugh, why does it have to be so haaaard.

In other news, I managed to oversleep today and thus have been in a bit of brain haze all day, God Damn I hate it when that happens!

Well, not a lot to report, I went up to the shops this afternoon to get something for dinner, but when I got home I realised I didn't have enough milk to make it, so I just had rice instead. Pft, fail. I also bought a new bus ticket, by holding off on using it until tomorrow at least I've only wasted three days.

Aaaand, this entry has taken a long time for now much being said, LOL, my apologies! But like I said my brain is just not with it.

So, I'll wrap this up right here and hopefully something interesting will happen for me to report on.

Goodnight all!

11:15pm: For my laptop! Sweeet! Although it did cost me $130 yikes! Although once again it's still cheaper than buying another laptop with the same specifications, this one is really high end!

However...I have discovered that I've made a bad move indeed, I've gone over my data limit on my mobile phone, and according to my service provider's site I owe $23 extra for going over. Shit, man, this is not good for my funds, not at all...I also think this might be the second time I've gone over my limit - although it was for only $4.50 so maybe I should get more data, which I'm sure costs less than $23! Plus this also means I'm going to have trouble playing my Simpsons game, my phone's wifi doesn't seem to be able to pick up the wi-fi signal from the main house...I guess I'll just have to go stand down on the lawn! At least until Monday.

In other news, I somehow managed to oversleep - I didn't hear my alarm at all - and woke up at 11am! Shit. I called the library to ask if they still wanted me to come in, but they said it was OK, instead I'll be going in on Monday. Since I'm not getting paid I guess it's no skin off my back...

I did go swimming and to the gym today, go me! And in that order too because my late start meant if I'd gone to the gym first the pool would have been closed to the public by then. So now I feel all healthy! And I got the call to pick up the laptop while I was working out, and there was a twist of luck with my bus being delayed so I was able to go to the shops and get some food at Coles, and also I finally found a new battery for my watch, I thought I was going to have to go to a speciality battery shop for it.

Then with my laptop back I was supposed to be doing some serious job hunting - I've got an appointment at Centrelink next Tuesday and need to have applied to 36 jobs from the last 12 weeks (damn, that seems like a lot...), but I got lazy and distracted looking at TUmblr. Whoops...

However! Things are going well on the NaNo front, I think I'm gonna make it, fingers and toes crossed! I might get a bit more writing down tonight, but my NaNo Stats at present stand at:



41660 / 50000 words. 83% done!

Hmmm, nearly to 85%! Kind of wish it was 88% ;O) but ah well.

Oh! And Mum's friend in the house was able to lend me a jelly mould so I'll have a delicious jelly to serve at the party on Sunday. Yippee!

Now, I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

11:43pm: Today was not my day, firstly, I woke up late, because somehow my alarm hadn't been set for Thursday. What the fuck?! I don't get how that happened, because the alarm certainly went off to wake me up last week! Seriously, sometimes I wonder...

So I got to the library so late that the Volunteer person had given up on me! :O( Which isn't to say she told me to go home or anything, but still it was pretty awkward, especially when I gave the excuse that I hadn't called because I couldn't find her number. Which doesn't really wash because I have called her before... I couldn't find the right number or remember it and I didn't want to deal with the Council Operators because last time I did it just a big circle of being transferred to this number and then that.

Then for some reason one of the functions of the online catalogue that the library uses wouldn't work so I wasn't able to do what I was meant to do! D: Fortunately there was other stuff to do, and I was just about to start it when the Library Manager came over...

To tell me that I hadn't made the cut to be interviewed for the three library assistant position.

Motherfucker!

They had 145 applicants and internal applicants, with more experience so I just didn't make it. Even though I'm volunteering my time there! D: Not that that's the reason I volunteer, but for fuck sake, if I can't even get a look in.

Well, my TAFE friend will be glad I won't be leaving the course, but uhh, now there's no way out, I have to do the work placement. My friend and I have agreed to go to the same facility, but I'm still worried. I'm squeamish! I don't mind helping old people out of their chairs, cooking their dinner, doing their ironing, shopping, even helping them on with their clothes, but I don't know if I can deal with body fluids...

Ugh. Trying to find a job is the biggest way to screw your self-esteem, I swear. All the positive affirmations in the world won't stand up when you're constantly being rejected. And when I looked at my email I discovered two more rejections from jobs I'd applied to.

Right, so...not a positive entry here. Maybe I should figure out a home business or something and strike out on my own.

Anyone want plushies? :OP

10:21pm: First of all, as typical I managed to oversleep this morning and beyond that it was drizzly today, so I pretty much stay at home. I got all my laundry done so that's good! Although, I'm not sure if it will dry by tomorrow...I sure hope so.

I also worked on my Plushy Plushy! I have a head! But I think I must have measured wrong or something because I've made two bodies to go with it and they're both absolutely tiny I mean it's a chibi style doll pattern, but the tininess of bodies is ridiculous! Of course now I've just got a head sitting around which is really a little creepy. Although I'm kind of proud of it so maybe I'll put a picture up for all of you to go "Aaaargh!" at.

But yeah, I have to figure out how to make a bigger body...good think I got like a whole 2 square metres of black statin. Maybe the fabric is the problem? You do have to make the hem rather large because of the fraying, hmm, will have to consider this. Also, do I want the arms separate? Because it's a pain in the ass to sew them on. Also the sequins are too big, boo! I'll probably have to return those, because quite honestly I'm not entirely sure how to sew them on without the thread showing.

Anyway, I won't go on because my mother wants to come over and spend the night tomorrow so she can watch the rugby on Foxtel which means I have to make sure the place is clean and neat for her arrival!

Before I get down to some spot cleaning before bed though...Memes!

Bring on the fun )

Right...maybe I'll just post my plushy progress on Tumblr, since you know that's where its at and I might as well use my Tumblr for something.

For now though, I must be off, I also need to make my bed before I got to sleep!

So I know bid you all goodnight!
