11:25pm: Nope, not at all...I stayed up too late last night like a dumbass and also the night before...so yeah, I'm very sleepy, which sucks because the Fed-Ex is playing his Semi-Final tonight and I can't watch it because it's the second one and the first one is definitely going to go to four sets. Balls :OP

I did a least get to see a shot of the Fed-Ex hanging at the Player's Restaurant watching the action. LOL, he's cool as a cucumber. But seriously, I can't believe I've hardly seen any Wimbledon this year?! I don't remember it being such a problem previously? Although I have noticed they don't seem to be reshowing games in the day time...it's probably all on the internet now, bah!

I'm also feeling pretty bummed about Le Tour, I can't get into it without Phil Liggett, it's just not the same! I wonder is he gone from commentating races all together? Is it all just interviews now? Which incidentally I never see on SBS even when I tune into the start of the coverage!

I'm also struggling a bit with my story...I'm tossing up between skipping this particular event all together, it's technically not that important to the plot and can be referred back to in later chapters or whatever. Decisions, decisions. Maybe I should skip it and see how it goes, LOL, guess my Tumblr friend was right about not posting until you've finished writing the story.

Oh yeah! That reminds me, yesterday after finishing work at the Mona Vale Library before heading for my volunteering I bought a lined notepad and put it in my Bamboo Spark and got around to trying it out. And it worked! Hooray! I was a bit worried because the pad has 90 sheets and the manual recommended only 50. So I'm hoping that'll be useful for my writing.

But anyway, I have to be off since like I said I underslept and it bit me in the butt, starting from this morning when I woke up turned my alarm off and fell back to sleep for another half hour! I was a bit late to Mrs S's which I've been doing a lot lately, stop backsliding me!

Also my tiredness led to me skipping the gym this afternoon, sigh. I expect better from me, LOL.

So yes, I bid you all goodnight!

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

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

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

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

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

On that note, I shall be off!

Goodnight all!

11:28pm: There's not a lot to say about it probably, since all the competitiors have to wear white, but they've got a Frenchman playing and his got a bushy beard! LOL I've never seen a tennis player with a beard before! Actually that seems to be an athlete thing, I know body hair is the enemy of swimmers, divers and cyclists, but you don't see other athletes with them either. Hmm, maybe it's all the sweater.

In other news, I'm relieved to report that I've managed to get through a road block in my fan fic! I've been stuck on it for the past few days, but finally some inspiration hit. Yay, go me!

So I didn't end up updating yesterday after all because that's how I roll, but let it be said, it was a great get together for my cousin Mack's birthday. Some of his maternal cousins were there, who I don't think I've met before, interesting people.

I had a cheese burger with chips on the side (I also put the lettuce that was in the burger on the side, because who wants warm lettuce? Why is that a thing anyway?) Very nice, although the cheese could have been meltier, it's hard to find good cheese.

Mack liked the Google gift card my little bro and I got for him - which reminds me I forgot to give the little bro my bank details so he can pay me back, whoops! - and the card I made. I drew Mr Burns in his "Excellent" pose since we enjoyed the play.

Aunt Jo made a rather interesting cake with caramelised apple and...I'm not sure what else, not chocolate though, because my aunt doesn't cook with chocolate. But there was dollop cream to go with it so yuuum!

Plus let's not forget the fact I took a paid day off work, so yay!:O)

Anywho, it's ten minutes to midnight now, so I better go, I've got work tomorrow at 9:30am and I need to make sure I get the proper amount of zzzs.

Wish me luck with my story and goodnight all!

11:55pm: Which is why I'm updating my journal with only five minutes to spare!

But yes, I've been drawing on my new tablet, or at least, I drew the actual line art on my Bamboo Spark and then coloured it on the tablet.

I'm looking forward to getting my pen stylus though, because it's a little hard to colour in without it, the regular stylus isn't much better then using my finger, LOL! Although I probably need to get a better digital art program, this one doesn't do layers or anything.

I went ice skating after work this afternoon, it was crowded as all Hell, but still really fun! I do love to skate, even if I am pretty bad at it, LOL.

Anyway, tomorrow I get the day off work to celebrate my cousin's birthday, yay! Except I have to make him a card and I haven't yet, I'm not sure what to draw!

I also need to do stuff with my fanfic tomorrow, the Yuri on Ice fans in the chatroom I'm in are looking forward to reading it and I've been dillydallying. Come on me, you can do it!

Okedoke, best be off now, with any luck I'll update tomorrow too (I'm reminded that I've fallen behind on my daily positive thing...gotta work on that.)

Right, goodnight all!

11:52pm: Right, OK, I have quite a few things to report, but nowhere near enough time to write about it...

First thing's first, I got myself an adorable little two-in-one tablet laptop at JB Hi-Fi yesterday! It was the last one so I got it at a discount, yeeess! However, it asked me to update tonight, which I tried to do only to have the thing throw a complete fit and now I've had to to reset it. Boooo! Not taht I had anything important on it but what a pain in the ass. I think I'll try upgrading it to Windows 10 next time, if possible. Windows 8 is notoriously crap if I remember right.

But OMG, I need to get back into my fic but I keep allowing myself to get distracted! Coe on get with the program me.

On a final note before I have to get my butt to bed and explanation for the subject title...I meant to turn the stove off earlier on, but instead I turned it up or at least not off completely. With it being winter and all I keep the door to the bedroom/living area closed so I didn't realise until my fire alarm went off and opened the kitchen door to find it FILLED with smoke! There wasn't a fire or anything, but my sausages were ruined and I had to open the doors and windows to clear it.

So yeah...massive fail there.

Right so I'm off to bed, at least I can say that I sped-read the latest chapter of the fanfic that's holding the Yuri on Ice fandom in it's thrall. So I can sleep easy. :OP

Now I say goodnight!

In fact I couldn't brain so much that I started this entry yesterday at 11:39pm and then gave up, LOL.

It wasn't much of an entry though...but here's what I wrote:

"Because that time o' the month is bearing down on me and concentration is the first casualty, which truly sucks. :OP Because I've procrastinated like crazy and now there's barely 10 minutes to midnight and I said I was going to update you all further on the play.

Although, it was mostly visual so...it's kind of hard to explain, LOL. Suffice to say Mr Burns is actually quite striking when he's wearing sequins. :OP

I am interested in finding out if the misquotes and whatnot in the play were done on purpose or if the playwright actually didn't know the episode. I was almost tempted to yell out the correct quotes, but it wasn't an audience participation play. :OP"

And let it be said it definitely was that Time o' the month at fault...it came today and knocked me on my ass, I didn't even get outside all day, which to be honest was probably a bad thing...Oh the plus side the period pain medication seems to have worked, which is good because I some bad cramps a couple of hours ago.

Moving along, I've been doing lots of chatting on the Yuri on Ice discord (it's like a message board) which is cool! Although it does mean I've been slacking on my fan fic, which is bad. I gotta get with the program, otherwise I'll never finish and that would be awful. I'm a bit annoyed though because I seem to have lost the second page of the plot outline I actually went to the trouble of writing this time! I feel like it'd be helpful to have. That'll teach me not to put it on the computer, I wrote it out by hand.

Speaking of writing stuff out by hand, I'm still unsure what to do about the days when I forgot to write a positive note of the day and can now no longer remember said days. Damn.

So not much else to report which is to be expected when you sit on your butt pretty much all day and I better head off so I can go to bed as soon as Cold Case finishes because there's work tomorrow!

For now, goodnight!

11:27pm: So yesterday I decided to buy that 2-in-1 laptop from Aldi because, it seemed like a good idea and the parental units were on board. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but...alas it just wasn't right. In that it the screen was too small, so all the text was tiny and even when I tried to zoom in it just wasn't right. Maybe it wasn't related but later in the night I had such horrible headache, seriously, it was killing me!

Also, the screen flickered when I got on Tumblr and the touch screen wasn't quite receptive enough - although I guess I should have expected that one, it's not top-market after all. So I decided to return it, which is allowed, except there was one small issue...the laptop came with a year's subscription to Microsoft Office so I activated it. I think it might be attached to my email now...which means even though I've returned the computer the next person who buys it won't be able to use the subscription! I did go to the Microsoft website to try and sort it out, they told me not worry , though I'm not sure that's true.

I feel bad about that, I gotta say. Maybe I should look into it again tomorrow.

Aside from computer related sheninigans yesterday was a good day! It was a public holiday so I didn't have to get to Mrs S's place until 9:30 and then I finished early and went to the parental abode for lunch with the parental units and the little bro. Not only was lunch delicious, the little bro had some good news, not only is work going well, he's decided to quit smoking. Yay! :OD It seems to be going well for him so far, so fingers crossed that goes on.

I spent the night at the parentals so Mum and I could watch our show - it's a hilarious topical game show, ah we laugh so hard.

Which makes me bummed that for the next two weeks I'll be watching it on my own because Mum and Dad are off to Japan to visit the big bro. Sniff, them's the brakes I guess, I'm sure they'll have fun, I'm not sure if I mentioned but they'll be doing some tourist stuff like going to an onsen.

I really should get going because it's ten minutes to midnight and I've got work tomorrow! I had work today actually, because Mrs S said her other carer wanted to meet me and that I should probably show her a few things and also to help rearrange a room...although the whole room thing ended up being a bust, LOL. Anyway! She was nice and actually said we should meet up sometime because she likes cooking Peruvian food (she's from Peru too) which means I could try it.

And lastly, the fanfic is still going, although now I wonder, if I write the whole thing before I start posting it do I posted it all at once or what? Please advise.

Right, now I really have to go.

Goodnight all!

11:24pm: Which is making me think I must have long term sleep-deprivation or something, it's rather concerning to be honest! Obviously I'm not time managing things properly! Although I'm really starting to wonder how I managed to write and keep up with my reading all those years ago. It's not like I wasn't working at all or anything...I guess I have to blame Tumblr there's so much going on on that thing. Perhaps I need to accept if I skip a day I won't be catching up :OP

Moving along, not much to report, except I didn't manage to go ice skating yesterday! I thought I'd have enough time to go and get my skates sharpened and get back to the Mall, but as usual things took longer than expected. So, I'm thinking of going tomorrow instead...otherwise it'll be getting on to three weeks since I've been! I'm also seriously considering just leaving my skates at the rink to be sharpened off-site, because all that extra travelling to the skate shop probably adds up in time and petrol costs.

In other news, I keep buying things and then returning them, for example today I went to Officeworks looking for a stylus, which I got, but I also saw these small tablets for sale, they came in different colours and I though the green one would be a fine replacement for my old tablet (that thing is slow as shit now a days), but alas it had crappy screen resolution, so I took it back. I probably expected too much from a $66 thing. LOL.

I should just accept my Bamboo art tablet, it's a bit small and weird to draw on something and have it show up on the laptop screen. Either that or try and find a different tablet, but eh, the decent one's are still pretty expensive.

Anyway, I have to head off because even if I do get to start work an hour later tomorrow because of the public holiday I really should endeavour to catch up on my sleep, unless I want to keep this eye twitch thing, which I totally do not.

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

Time Keeping

anonymoose_au: (Hey! Bitches)
11:12pm: Yep, I was hoping the weather people had dropped the ball on their predictions (it happened a couple of weeks back) but nope, it looks like it's going to be a very wet weekend. To which I say boo, because I wish to go ice skating and I probably need to get my blades sharpened which means driving and I'm a little leery about driving in the pouring rain. Especially since some of the roads I take are prone to flooding with this sort of weather, I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers.

Also...the weather was deceptively clear when I got home from doing some shopping today (after finishing up at Mrs S's place) and it was sheet washing day so I put them on and headed for the gym. However, a little over halfway through my work out it started absolutely bucketing down! So I had to do some creative sheet hanging because I can't put them on the line. Which is bad news because I don't have any room anything else so no clothes washing today...I really hope I can get everything done and dry by Monday.

What else to report? Well, I did briefly buy a Bamboo Spark which was on special at Aldi - it's been there for a while and it looked interesting. I have a Bamboo One but it's weird to draw on because you can't actually see what you're drawing on the thing itself, it appears on the laptop screen and it's a little disconcerting. When I got the Spark home though I discovered there's an app for tablets and smartphones that lets you draw on the screen and it's free! The Spark is a little weird...in that you actually draw on paper with a special pen which then sends the strokes you made to an app, so there's still a bit of disconnect. Plus it was sixty bucks, and I'm not meant to be spending money on extraneous stuff, so after the gym I returned it.

The only downside to the app is that my phone screen is too small for it to really work properly and my tablet is a bit too old - on the other hand it could just be the stylus I'm using...might need to check into that. So I might just have to stick with the Bamboo One after all that. Pft, fail.

On the fan fic front, I'm most relieved that while working at Mrs S's today I found a way to move the story forward, phew! I was getting bogged down and the headache I had last night wasn't helping at all. Of course, having a story idea while working isn't very helpful because I couldn't write it down, but patience is a virtue, or something. :OP

So, it's getting late and thus I better head off, I only have one other thing to report...the handle decided to break off my regular sized pot, do'h! Now I need to find a new one, but should I splash out and buy a new set of pots? Or just replace that one? Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.

And now I shall be off!

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

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

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

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

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

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

11:02pm: So I was at the library volunteering today when I decided to take a look at the internal job postings because there are supposed to be some library positions coming up. So I did and I was most excited to see one for a Casual Library Assistant! I thought, OK so it's not full or part-time, but hey I should take what I should get.

Except...I've just realised, I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to have that position, it's been like a year since I've had a shift (although I did get called up briefly for one last September before they cancelled it on me), so do I need to apply for this? Should I just call up? Although the contact person is the Library Manager who kind of has a scary reputation, I don't want to sound like an idiot. Although, I guess it wouldn't hurt? It's not like they'd tell me to stop volunteering, I'm doing it for free! :OP

Moving along, I'm still working on the fan fic, it's going well so far, I'm wondering about my timeline though and if I should shorten it, 'cause at present it spans quite a few years and I wasn't planning on having the story be too long. Although it's not like I have to recount every little thing that happens, although I've been guilty of such things before.

What else to report...I feel like I'm forgetting something, but I can't think what, my flat is still clean (well it'd be a bit sad if it wasn't), I fed Fishenko today, cooked my fish, which was yummy, although sticking those two things together seems weird.

Maybe it's just because it's that time o' the month, annoying I tells ya, you should have seen me yesterday just before it showed up, I was dropping stuff and bumping into furniture and door frames. Hmpf.

Anyway, I better wrap this up, I need to get to sleep as soon as Murdoch Mysteries finishes.

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!

11:50pm: Yeah, yesterday as I was coming home from the parental units place I popped by the 7-11 to get some milk and decided to pick up one of these Santa belly Krispy Kreme donuts, which are super cute looking. I didn't eat it last night because I'd all ready had quite a few sweet, but I warmed it up for dessert tonight and let's just say it was not the best decision. It was just waaay to sweet, my stomach felt so weird afterwards that I almost had a panic attack!

Bah, I don't even care for Krispy Kreme donuts anyway so I don't know what the Hell I was thinking...

Anyway, that was basically the most activity I got done today I'm sorry to say...my mother ended up going swimming in the morning so there was no reason for me to go over since I wouldn't be able to go swimming myself and my big bro was having friends over, so...

I probably should have gone out, lying around all day is no good for me...or my step count. :OP I hope to rectify that tomorrow with not just work but going swimming with Mum at M and Grandpa's place.

Oh! And my the landlord's wife dropped off a small present for me today! How nice of them! I should have at least given them a card...shame on me.

But! It's nearly midnight so I better haul, before I go...I wrote a little fic for my friend [personal profile] crossover_chick for her birthday! Happy Birthday, Vic! This is the first writing I've done in a while so I'm totally rusty...

11:45pm: In today's brief entry, I'm pleased to report I'm up to 7,195 words for Camp NaNo. Although considering that my target is 20,000 words for July, I'm probably not going to make it, which sucks. I'm writing again though, so that's cool! :O)

The story I'm writing though isn't actually anything that'll end up on fanfic.net or wherever, nor is it an original work, gotta start somewhere when you've fallen off the horse.

Right better haul ass, not only do I have the lack of data, but it's almost midnight and I'm tired. This morning I fell back to sleep after my alarm went off and ended up been 10 minutes late for work!

So, goodnight all!

10:02pm: Yeah, the net is still not here, so I'm updating this with my mobile data. I mean I think I'm going to have to lay 15 bucks anyway, although I need to stay under 3.5 GBs if I don't want to pay even more!

But I'm all ready close to that I think, so yeah.

I'm going to take this opportunity to try and do some writing, I mentioned signing up for Camp NaNo to try and kick start that area, so I should actually try that.

10:44pm: LOL, I probably shouldn't try to speak street...but I will anyway because it's fun.

And also true! Because after work today I drove to Vinnies in Brookvale to meet up with my mother and began our search for new furniture - since except for the wardrobe the new Granny Flat is unfurnished.

We originally went to Vinnies to look for a small table, but those aren't easy to find so unsurprisingly there wasn't any there. What was there however was a sexy red reclining chair, with a foot stool for only 50 bucks! Now, I have my white chair, but to be honest it's not actually all that comfortable to sit in - it's a little high for me - and the stool (which I do use all the time) is all sort of threadbare. So I bought it and Mum's going to pick it up on Wednesday in Dad's car - which is an SUV so can fit such a thing.

The other reason we went to Vinnies was to get the contact details of the movers they use because they were really good last time I moved. We succeeded with that and I called the guy as Mum and I (in her car) headed towards Manly and the second hand whitegoods place. I didn't get the guy first go and had to leave one of those 10 second messages that will be converted to text. Ew...I hate those so much, I'm always worried the software won't understand a thing I'm saying and they'll just get some garbled shit. I guess your phone number still shows up. Either way the guy did get back to me and I arranged the movement of furniture to happen on Thursday.

Mum and I took a detour to Fantastic Furniture to continue the table hunt and we found a very cool one that folds down! It was quite expensive, like $270 and that didn't include chairs. I did actually buy it, but later on Mum saw what she thought was a better option at Target so I have to cancel my order on the table - still getting the chairs though - which is good because you have to cancel your order in person, and there's nothing worse then having to drive out of your way for no real good reason.

Then it was to the whitegoods place in Manly where I'm pleased to say I found a fridge (with a four star rating!), a washing machine (which sadly had an absolutely atrocious energy and water rating) and a rather sexy small black microwave. Whoo! Sweet. It's gonna cost me $660, but that does include delivery, so I think I've made out good. :O)

In other news, tomorrow is my cousin Mack's belated birthday get-together! I called Uncle Sam to ask if I should make cupcakes - the invite said no need to bring anything, but you know I love any excuse to make cupcakes! He said thanks but there was enough food so no, I was a bit disappointed - I could practically taste that left over cupcake batter!- but what can you do? However, a little later Mack himself called me and told me to make some, I assume he had his parents, or at least his mother's OK to do this. So I made them! However...as I was taking out the batch of four extras from the oven I managed to spill them with one landing on my thumb and burning it! Ow! Epic fail!

I've not been very good to my hands today...I got a rather nasty papercut this morning and then I somehow managed to catch my finger in the rings of the folder with the timesheets in it which hurt like Hell. And of course this burn, which I think has derailed my plans to do some memes because I need to put a wet cloth on it so it'll stop hurting.

And finally, I hurried home because the sky was looking quite threatening and I wanted to get my washing off the line, however it was still a bit damp and the sky seemed better so I left it out there...only for the rain to come by about half an hour ago! Fuck! I got it inside but now it's damp-er then it was when I got home this evening.

Grumble, grumble.

Oh! I almost forgot! I managed to write 390 words today! LOL it's sad how excited I was by that...:OP Come on me, get with the program.

Anyway, signing off now.

Goodnight all!

11:27pm: This girl! And in the nick of time too! I'm so pleased with myself! Especially because plans were somewhat changed today because when I got home from Mrs. S I received a call from Dee Why Library wanting to know if I could do the 5pm to 8pm shift. I hesitated, but...dude, it's money for working at the library, so it had to be done. :OP

Although Microsoft Word says I've done exactly 50,000 words, but whatever.

As I said there in the subject title, I won! Here's the NaNoMetre to prove it!



50000 / 50000 words. 100% done!

Annnd here's my winner's banner under the cut! )

Like a baaaawsss.

However, I've realised that what I wrote this year is really pretty shitty and it's not likely I'll keep much of it if I ever use it to finish the fanfic. Pft, I hope though I can use this to keep up with the writing though, I've bee slacking so bad and it's just not right.

Anyway, I have to be off to bed now, but I'd like to thank the Academy and my brain for making this possible.

Goodnight all!

10:18pm: My Acer doesn't seem to be working...I turn it on and it starts the Windows load screen and then nothing, it just keeps saying it's loading and this just goes on. It's happened a few times now and usually I do a hard reboot and skip the 'start Windows in safe mode' request and it's all good. However, it doesn't seem to be working now, the same stuck-on-the-loadinb-screen thing happens. I've tried following the instructions for start-up repair, but that just gets stuck on a loop too. Ugggh, sucks!

Oh wait, something's just happened, apparently Windows can't solve the problem, it told me to send the info to them over the net, which I did. It started up now, but that's quite disturbing it sems to think I've connected some new peripheral to it, which I haven't. There was a disc in the CD/DVD drive, so I took it out, don't know if that'll make much difference, but at least the laptop's working again. Man, I hope it's nothing serious!

Anyway, moving along, I went up to the Post Office to pick up my package, now I have a large Babushka doll lunchbox again hooray! And a spare medium and small one, not sure what I'll do with them...keep them as a backup or something I guess.

After that I went to the Newtown Public Library, where I planned to work on my assignment, the place was utterly crowded however, so I came back here to the apartment and cooled down a bit (it was another hot day) before setting off for the Sydney Uni Library. I was there for about an hour, and got...not much done, primarily because not being a student I couldn't actually connect to the net, do'h! I connected through my phone and tried to do a bit, but yeah not much luck. At 4 I decided to go to the Glebe library so that I'd be in a good position to get to the Writer's Group meeting at 6. I walked a fair way hoping to find some black sandals at the Glebe Vinnies, but nope, still no luck there. Then I caught a bus for two blocks to the library LOL. I couldn't find a desk there so I just read Michael J Fox's first memoir Lucky Man. I found it in the Box Thing last week and I realised I'd never got around to reading it, shame on me! It's good so far.

Then at about 5:30 I headed towards the bar, buying a chocolate Paddle pop on the way, it only took a few minutes walk, but the organizers arrived early so I wasn't the first there. I had bought a small bottle of water earlier that day - which fits into my small backpack, but I'd drunk most of it. I actually planned to get an Iced Chocolate from the bar, but they don't take EFTPOS and I have no physical money, plus I'd had that Paddle pop so... I just got a nice tall glass of ice water instead. I wonder what an iced chocolate from a pub would taste like though.

Anyway, the pub has Wi-Fi so instead of working on fiction, I tried to work on my assignment, fuck that shit is boring and I have no idea what I'm even doing, bloody awkward. I seem to have got all my headings and sub-headings, still I need the guts! Also more readings and stuff, ugh pain in the butt. I worked on it for a good hour and a half, but...yeah...

At about 7:30 I called it a day and because the bus I usually took was late I headed down to the main road to catch he bus that goes practically to my door. Hmm, got a lot of walking done today, go me!

Anyway, I was planning to do more on the assignment, but I feel like I should go to bed, tomorrow is a big day with the dentist and all that, plus I was feeling very sleepy earlier, so maybe I need to catch up on my zzzs some more.

Now...am I brave enough to turn off my laptop I wonder!

For now goodnight!

Assignment

9:53pm: That really should detract from the plot, but it does, because seriously? Lynley looks like John Travolta in Grease and his off-sider looks totally wrong with long hair.

Anyway, I'm sitting here in the apartment not sure what to do with myself, I had a lazy start to the day, my alarm went off at 8am but I turned it off and fell back to sleep, not getting up until 10am. It was 1pm before I'd gotten off my butt and showered and dressed.

I decided to go to the Marrickville Metro, where another Aldi is located, so I could buy some more fabric softner, since I lost more than half of mine when the bottle fell off the washing machine last night. While there I discovered they did release a pop out box head version of The Simpsons Season 16 box set! I thought they hadn't so I've put off buying it since I don't need to get a limited edition one, but now I do! It was at a Sanity shop though (man, I didn't know that place was still in business) for which I have no gift cards and it was like $50 so I refrained from buying it. I looked up the JB Hi-Fi website which says they've got it in stock, so I have to go to the one at the City Westfield to use my gift card on that.

In terms of job finding, there wasn't a lot of luck there, boo. I did hand my resume into one place, but yeah...And when I got home there was a letter from one of the places I applied to saying "No dice" (which is the first time in a while that's happened! Usually they don't bother to write back to you at all, rude!) This has reminded me that I've got two jobs I should apply for! Especially the one at the ABC, fingers crossed, fingers crossed!

The Writer's Group is back on! So I headed out this evening and for about an hour and a quarter it was great! I was just tapping away really getting some good words out, then unfortunately some loud and dare I say, drunken patrons came in and started making a whole lot of noise at the dart board and pool table on the other side of the mezzanine level complete with cursing. Eventually, I decided to go, although while I was waiting for the bus the drunken patrons left, and walked passed and for reasons unknown the lady decided to flash everyone...I think she was trying to show the garbage man her tattoo. Suffice to say, ewww that's a sigte I could have done without. I'm thinking I might go to the new meeting day on Tuesday which is taking place at Gloria Jeans, less chance of loud drunks and objectible loud music.

In other news, still no luck on finding nice casual sandals, I may have to go online after all to purchase them, the one I lost was really comfortable soft leather as I said, and they just don't seem to have those. In fact, most sandals seem either too high or too low. What's up with that?

I also discovered something odd the other day...my waist measurement has gone down - by like a centimetre but still down - while my hips - and butt! - have gone up 3 centimetres. What's up with that? I guess if I'm not careful I'll end up with a big caboose. Which wouldn't be a problem, but it does mean the skirt of that nice suit I got from the Salvo's doesn't sit properly anymore. This is most irritating. Although I seem to have problems with skirts anyway, they like to twist around on my person, what's up with that?

And lastly - because I should get back to those cover letters - my Hill Valley in Sim City is a knife edge, power-wise ([personal profile] crossover_chick will be interested to hear this!) with 0 extra watts being produced. Unfortunately, I'm also running out of money, I had to take all these loans so I can't even get anymore dough! Also...I mentioned I accidentally made this an open region and the other people who claimed cities there haven't played in weeks, so I can't make cities with big power plants and stuff to help myself out. Hmpf!

Right gotta write cover letters, concentrate me! Concentrate!

Goodnight all!

10:03pm: I'm happy to report that today went significantly better! It started a bit oddly when I received a call at 8:10am and it turned out to be a someone from one of the places I applied to, at that hour! But! It's a library job! How exciting! The downside was they were calling to say that it was no longer two days a week, but one and on a Monday too. But library job takes precedence, so I said that I was still super interested, so the woman, the head of the Primary School Library (huh didn't know I was a primary school library still cool beans) said that the director of the Primary School wanted to see my references and know what days I would be available for an interview. So I emailed that info through - although I did put my references in my cover letter, do people read those things?

So, I did that and then headed off for my laser treatment thing, which I ended up running late for - do'h - however I did call ahead to let them know so no dramas. I got the treatment done and also an eyebrow wax because they're a bit out of control LOL and it wasn't as expensive as I feared, phew!

And I gave my resume to the Mosman Newsagency before heading to my own newsagency to get some essential items for my Christmas cards.

After that I had planned to go to the gym and I'd even brought my gym shoes along, but then then I realised I forgot to bring the house keys for the parental units's place so I couldn't! Instead I dropped of a resume at Baker's Delight at Neutral Bay and then headed on back to Newtown where I was able to get into the Box Thing (because the person has moved their 4WD for the day) so I've got my Christmas decos and accessories. My tree is looking niiice if I do say so myself.

Then I did some more work on my Christmas cards, I did one yesterday and two more this afternoon so there's three more to do - well for my overseas friends, because they have to be sent ASAP to arrive in time.

Then it was time to go to my Writer's Group for what turned out to be the last one of the year, while there I got a call, from the library woman, to arrange an interview next Tuesday at 7:30am! Yikes! But I wanna work in a library so I definitely jumped at the chance, I immediately planned how to get there in time, so I should be good go. I also got an email while at the Writer's Group said I didn't get the Manly Library job, so fingers crossed friends!

Right now I'm working on the fourth one now which I've almost finished, once it's done I better turn in though! Work at the office tomorrow.

That being the case, I'll hold off on doing the memes once more, it I'll get onto them soon, I promise!

For now, though, goodnight!
