10:25pm: And it kicks me in the ass in the form of a nasty headache at the end of the day, which means I haven't written a single word on my fanfic. Sigh!!! Don't leave me, mojo, I love you!

But! I do have exciting news, first off my Viktor Nikiforov Nendroid arrived! OMG, he's so cute! And he looks perfect next to the Yuuri nendroid - please observe.!

Also! As promised a photo of Fluffshenko the Llama. Isn't he totally adorable? SO FLUFFY!

Although speaking of shenko's I was rather worried about Fishshenko this morning he's looking a little a drab...also he was hiding behind the heater in his tank. I thought he was dead actually! But nope. His fins don't look as full as they used to. I hope he's OK, I changed some his water, I've been slacking on that. Honestly me, get the program! I've just seen him swimming around so perhaps he's recovered! I think maybe I've under fed him a bit? Hard to know with fish isn't it?

Oh well, despite the headache I have been enjoying the Junior Grand Prix skating there's been dancing, pairs and now the ladies! There's been an Aussie in each (and in the men too, except I wasn't able to watch that live) although alas our Junior World Champion pairs skaters juuust missed the podium. Ah well, it's early in the season.

Anywho, beyond that not much else to say except it would appear to be ant season again, shiiit, I hate those buggers. Could think I've still got my ant poison from earlier in the year. But seriously get outta my house you nasty things.

Right gonna wrap this up here because the ladies are skating as I said and it's hard to type and watch at the same time!

Good luck to the Aussie there (who trains at the rink I go to!) and goodnight all1

11:37pm: Yep! It's that time of year once more. A time for church, Easter eggs and a roast dinner with the maternal side of the family. It was greeeat! :OD

The only not so great thing was I didn't get nearly enough sleep last night because I woke up in the middle of the night to my poor father hacking up a lung. He's had this cough for some weeks now, although he's been to the doctor about and apparently it's not whooping cough or anything, but still it's weird. Although according to him I was also coughing and woke him up!

I can only hope it was from the doona Mum gave me to sleep under, I think it was a bit dusty rather than a sign I'm getting a cold (knock on wood, I so don't need that shit), my nose is certainly still itchy. Most irritating.

Anyway, I'm not sure what to do because there's this amazing fanfic I've been reading and the author is going to post the next chapter soon, but soon is still midnight for me and even though I get to start an hour later than usual tomorrow morning because it's a public holiday this is gonna be a loooong chapter so I probably shouldn't start reading it...

Oh and I almost forgot! I've got the photo of my Pusheen swag uploaded! Feast your eyes on the adorableness! It's beautiful I tell you. Comments are welcome - of course I won't wear all of it together at the same time, that'd be a bit much, LOL.

Right, once again I've let the side down Meme wise, but there was a lot to distract me this evening, like the new series of Doctor Who and the fact that I finally finished this book I've been reading, that sure took a while, which is weird because it was a good book. Figure that one out.

But yes I gotta head off now.

Goodnight all!

11:18pm: On this house show I watch on Sunday night. It's called Flip This House and it follows different flippers (as they call them), but I tell ya the last few episodes have been full of Angry Guys, like all yelling and swearing at each other. Can't you boys just get along? :OP

In other news, I finally remembered to get the box my mother found in M and Grandpa's garage from the boot of my car, although with all the rain that's been going on it hasn't really been that feasible. But the rain finally let up this afternoon so when I finished work and popped home before heading to church I carried it, my cupcake carrier (which I got from Mum earlier) and my box of the first few seasons of The Simpsons (which I'd lent to my Uncle Sam and his family and also got back earlier) into the granny flat.

Mum said there were clothes in the box, but imagine my surprise when I opened it and started to go through to find all these clothes I really like but hadn't been able to find! I have no idea why the ended up in M and Grandpa's garage, among them were my Garfield satin pjs, a few of my favourite t-shirts, a dress that'd been super good for the beach and stuff like that! I'd been wondering where it had got to for ages!

This why you have to be careful where you put things when moving!

Anyway! Grandpa's birthday party was great! Although I was only able to be there for an hour (boo), but I got to see M, Grandpa, Aunt Weed, her fiance Pete, Uncle Sam, Aunt Jo, cousin Mack and my parental units. Good times, good times. Although it was super humid today so that was a bit uncomfortable, good thing I wore one of my sundresses!

Aunt Jo kindly cooked sausages early so I had something to eat before I headed off for work - although as it happened the traffic was good (of course) so I ended up being early. I went to look around the shopping centre and got a call from my friend, Ben inviting me to go to the beach (although it was still pretty cloudy at that time!) but alas I couldn't go. Boo! As it happened the weather cleared up during the day and judging from the photo he posted on Facebook it turned out to be quite a nice day.

Speaking of Facebook photos, some people uploaded photos they took, including the group shot! I'm sure you can spot me. :O) And see everyone seems so tall! I thought my heels were a decent height.

Right, I better be off! I've got work tomorrow morning and I still have my Russian to do before I turn in. Let's all hope my bank card arrives tomorrow! I owe Mum another fifty bucks and Mrs S a hundred (I may see if I can send her that money by direct debit, guess it depends what she wants).

Oh and I almost forgot, I went to my parental units this evening after church (they and Mrs Lampe came so we all sat together) so I got delicious lasagna and salad for dinner. Alas the little bro was meant to come, he also missed the party this morning, but he wasn't up to it - apparently he partied a little too hearty last night.

For now, though, goodnight!

10:38pm: The Secret Life of Pets that is! They were showing it on the cruise actually, but I kept missing the start or the end and on the day it was shown on the big screen on board it was Dad's birthday and thus I didn't get chance to watch it then.

And when I got back home all the copies at the Warringah Library were out so I figured I wouldn't get it for a while, but a copy came to Mona Vale Library so yay!

But yes, I wanted to see it mostly for the sausage dog, LOL I love those little dogs, they're so funny looking.

Although there sure turned out to be a lot of property damage in this film!

And now...the end of the trip... )

So that's it! Suffice to say when they emailed me the link for the survey I gave them a glowing review! And perhaps someday when I have enough hours of work a week I can save up for another cruise! And this time I'll keep a journal of events as they unfold.

But! For now, I must be off, I've got a shift at the library tomorrow so I can't stay up super late! Plus I need to finish my cleaning I've made quite a dent in it but more needs to be done. So wish me luck with that!

For now...goodnight!

9:52pm: Actually, I don't know if that's true, but it feel like it should be, I mean...red in the bathroom? Just sounds wrong. Although there was another bathroom in the house in question that had green wallpaper, I was on board with that! :OP

Just to clarify, I'm watching my house shows, I'm not actually looking at houses myself - although I'm reminded that I think they might have finished the display suite of the apartment building I've bought off the plan, I should find out for sure and then the parental units and I can go visit it!

Also, is a weird that the dude in this current house show wants elements of the Pacific Northwest in the house when he and his fiance are in fact on the east coast, wrong side of the country, my good sir.

Moving on, the get together looks to be going ahead tomorrow evening/night, yay! The only problem is my friend hasn't replied to me about whether he's going to the party at 4pm - which means I'll have to take public transport there because I finish work at 5pm - or later. I wonder if he's not getting my messages over Facebook, I'd assume so though. I guess he's thinking about and will get back to me.

But, for now let's return to the past...to...

The Last Full Day and Night of the Cruise )

Right! There is of course the last morning, but...it's getting late and since I'll be having a quite a big day tomorrow so I better wrap this up. Not sure if I'll be able to update tomorrow, but if I don't, I'll tell the last part of the cruise.

11:06pm: Not my epic recounting of the cruise (I'm afraid with the late start to this entry there'll still be a few more days to go with that!), but the fiction book about Russia I've been reading since - I kid you not - mid-November last year! It had 1006 pages in it! Plus as the distractable person that I am, I felt the need to read other books around it, so it all added up there. Anyway, it was a pretty good read!

But without further ado...Dad's Birthday Dinner! )

And that's how Dad's birthday went! And now, midnight is closing in so I shall wrap this up here. I hope you're enjoying the cruise journal as much I am in reliving it. :O)

10:59pm: Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners, which is a very odd show where one obsessive cleaner goes to a the house of a super messy person's place and teaches them how to clean - which is apparently supposed to help them not be so obsessive in their own cleaning. I'm not actually sure that's an approved method...I guess as long as they don't end up making other people obsessive, because the guy that's on right now takes four hours to wash his dishes!

Anyway, time is getting on so I better get a move on! First up, I finally go the Chou Chou Train video in a sharable format. Man, that was quite the drama...no idea why it wasn't working yesterday, I did end up having to turn off and turn on my laptop so maybe that was the issue. Anyway there you go 7 seconds, LOL.

Happy Birthday to Dad! )

Right, I think I'll have to leave Dad's Birthday Dinner to tomorrow! It's almost midnight and I've work in the morning. It was quite an evening so I want to give it the attention it deserves.

10:22pm: Yes, I finally realised how to rotate a video on my phone...with the edit button! Duh! No idea how I missed that, a bit embarrassing to be honest. I've been wanting to put this video on my Cruise Album on Google Pics, I think I mentioned it before? I couldn't find that edit option on my phone before, so I uploaded it because when I searched how to rotate videos it told me you could do it on Google+, but when I did that I couldn't find any way to do it. But! Turned out the option was on the phone the whole time...so we'll get to the later.

But I should update about some current events since I've been slacking on that too. I'm rather excited to say that I've caught up on the Back to the Future comic books! I ordered issues 14 to 17 from Kings Comics on Friday and they arrived today, which was a good idea if I do say so myself because that way I only had to pay for one lot of postage. Of course, it does mean if I'm going to do that I'll even more behind than usual (Australia's all ready behind with comic books). The "Who is Marty McFly" arc was a good read although I got confused at some points, like I was missing something, LOL. I figured it out in the end though so perhaps I didn't miss anything after all. :OP

Aside from that, not a lot of excitement in the life of Moose - although today I started the process to join the new provider Mrs S is going through, which is good news, because she's leaving her old one at the end of this week and if I'm not signed up I can't get paid...or you know actually work. The only pain in the butt was the fact I left the paperwork I need (first aid certificate, police check etc) at home so I had to go from Mrs S's (which is just across the road from the providers) to pick them up so I ended up a bit late for said interview. But it all went pretty well in the end, so things should be good to go next Monday.

And finally, today is Ash Wednesday, I wasn't able to go to any of the morning masses, so I had to go to the evening one, unfortunately I misread the start time so I was at the church a whole half an hour early. Whoops.

Oh and today marked the first day of helping Mum with the Catholic Scripture class, which went pretty well considering how had to haul a heavy-ass box of books to the classroom.

And now...back to the Cruise! )

Phew! This turned out to be a super-long entry and I better not stay up too late tonight, so I shall say goodnight!

10:49pm: Yes indeed! And I got to have pancakes over at the parental house this evening as well as dinner! :O) Good times indeed.

In less good times, my left knee/leg hurts...why? I have no idea, I think it just wants to be an ass. Or perhaps I've become an old man and it's reacting to the weather or something, LOL (In all seriousness though, it's been all over the place...cloudy, pouring down with rain, sunny and now...back to pouring down with rain again).

Anywho, I've got to get to work a bit earlier than usual tomorrow with Mrs S so I better take us back to...

9:56pm: Yeah, the cold decided to come back with avengence yesterday - I had to call in sick to work at the library, I didn't go to church and I tried to see about calling in sick to work with Mrs S today, but it was too late, fortunately I feel better today. Although, I didn't get as much sleep as I hoped I would staying over at the parental units' house because Dad was coughing up a lung! I hope he went to see a doctor about it...

Also, I didn't realise Mum had indeed put a top sheet on the bed so I was sleeping under the doona and it was waaay to hot under there.

Anyway, let's get back to it!

To the Pines! )

Right, better haul! I have to work tomorrow (I don't usually, but the other lady can't do it, and hey extra money), so sleep is needed!

10:25pm: Yes! We're onto Day Five of the Cruise - Mystery Island Day!

If there was one thing I was looking forward to apart from the ice skating rink on the ship, it was finding out the mystery behind Mystery Island.

Which was... )

Righto, hoped you all enjoyed that :O) I need to head off since thre's work tomorrow and I've still got this cold. I was hopeful this morning when my throat didn't feel as sore as yesterday, but I ended up feeling pretty icky once I finished up with Mrs S. I had planned to go and finish my shopping at Aldi, but it was so busy I never got around to it. I did though go up to the IGA in Elanora Heights were I at least got some margarine. I sure hope I feel better tomorrow though! I need to do the cupcakes, not to mention go to work.

Ah well, fingers crossed for that! Goodnight all!

11:00pm: Well, it's a bit late - again! Where does the time go after 10pm? I swear an hour passes in like three seconds - but I've decided I better continue my tale of the cruise, otherwise I'll never finish telling you all about it!

So, let's not beat around the bush, but dive right in!

To Port! )

Right, it's getting quite late and I stayed up waaaaay too late last night, which was a really pisspoor idea because the niggling sore throat I had yesterday has become quite a bit worse and a runny nose was thrown into the bargain today. In fact it was bad enough that when I went to do my volunteering the co-ordinator decided I should head home early - I didn't even end up staying an hour! But I've done more than two-hours volunteering the last few times, so I didn't protest too much. :OP

Right, I need to head off, work calls tomorrow and I need to do a lot of washing too!

11:22pm: In more ways than one, for example I'm already starting this update way too late to write as much as I want about the cruise! I have however began compiling a photo album on GooglePhotos, you can view it here! There's still quite a few photos missing though, I'm not sure why some of them haven't been saved into the Cloud - especially considering the app used up all my mobile data! Seriously! I'm most irritated about that. I thought I told the app not to upload unless I was using wi-fi. So now I have to pay extra this month, how annoying!

Anyway! Today it was back to work with Mrs S, I had a great time telling her about the cruise and showing her the photos I took. Also, the new working arrangements seem to have been sorted out now, although I do need to go for an interview with the new people, I called and left a message telling them to get back to me on that, but they didn't. I guess I'll have to give it a go tomorrow.

Right, I've let myself get distracted as usual and now I'm seriously short on time, I hope you weren't waiting with baited breath for the next installment of my cruising adventure. But hey a good writer builds suspense...or something, LOL.

After finishing with Mrs S I went to Mona Vale to get a new rainbow beach bag - and not a moment too soon, I bought the last one in the shop! I also went hunting for a swimsuit, but I've totally left it too late in the season...having said that I'm not sure any of the shops there even have swimsuits in the peak of summer. Makes me miss that swimwear shop in Dee Why, that was a good place.

Then I went shopping to get more food after the fridge disaster, although I did forget a few things, do'h! Have to fix that tomorrow. And I think I'll have to clear out the freezer too...the defrosted fish doesn't bode well.

Anywho, I better be off! Don't worry I promise I'll write more about the cruise tomorrow, in the meantime though check out the photo album, I'm quite proud of it. :O)

11:30pm: Yes indeed! Here's the first one which Dad took of me at the ice rink down there in Canberra. I look like I know what I'm doing there, LOL! But sadly I can't keep my arms in the proper position when it comes to actually skating, which Mum pointed out to me. She thinks I should get some lessons, but I dunno, like I said they make you learn how to fall down. I don't wanna fall down.

Anywho, I felt a bit nervy skating for some reason, so I didn't have as much fun as I could have had, but it was still pretty good! Although it felt weird because the ice rink was smaller (not Olympic size I guess!) and the ceiling much lower.

The second photo is of me in front of Cockington Green where the minature village is! (Still gotta upload and shrink down those photos though) and you can see my Tuxedo shirt that Dad got me, isn't it awesome?!

In other news, and I gotta make this quick, as it happens I'm moving in with the little bro because the Canadian girl sadly decided to be flip-floppy and it was really driving him nuts. So I've all ready started to move some stuff over because the whole rush rush part of moving kills me. I wonder if the agent will be nice and let me give two weeks notice since I'm only juuust into the roll-over period, or if there's some sort of legal requirement.

Anyway, I've been distracted here because the last Aussie standing in the singles at the Aussie Open was playing and it was looking a bit nail biting, but she did it whoo!

So now, I must wrap it up and head for bed.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For now, goodnight!

10:49pm: Nah, I kid, with any luck I'll be in this particular Granny Flat for a while, because moving is a pain in the ass.

But! As promised I've taken some pictures, which you can see here because I'm too lazy to actually link them here one by one. I need to take some others though like the outside of the Granny Flat and my new recliner and the other bookcase which is beside the front door and holds a surprising amount of books!

No seriously! I had three large tubs full of books when I left the old Granny Flat today - all of which were so heavy I was worried that I might throw my back out or something. And thanks to that bookcase and a few other places I managed to find in the house - like the buffet cabinet, the second wardrobe, a spare crate that fits in the crate holder and under the bed I've wittled it down to about fifteen or so that I just need to find a place for. I think I need another crate, for some reason there's one spot left in it, I actually have two crates under the bed but neither fit in the holder! Pft.

However, the house isn't exactly neat as I'm still unpacking things, I'm a bit bummed because I can't find my customised Nutella label (it has Moose printed on it) anywhere, I remember packing it, but I have no idea where I packed it, do'h! Hope I didn't throw it out, I'm pretty sure they don't let you get a personal label made up anymore. :O(

Anyway! I gotta lay my head down to sleep soon, my sleep debt has caught up with me and I have a bit of a headache so I want to try and catch up on it, at least some of it!

I used the stove for the first time today - I was somewhat confused by which of the knobs to turn to get the hotplate hot, the diagram was a bit weird - it worked out in the end though and I had some very yummy sausages. I also did my first two loads of laundry tonight and discovered that I can use fabric softener in the top loader - the little compartment for it just happened to be hiding. :OP And I also used the rather shitty looking washing line out back...which is really rather shitty. I'm tempted by this retractable washing line that's goes on sale at Aldi next week, but I dunno...I'm not sure where I would attach the end of it... I guess I'll see what my parents think.

Right, better wrap this up! Hopefully I'll be more coherent tomorrow. Somewhat embarrassingly after exchanging them for another set I need to return those flannel sheets I got a few weeks back. I find this embarrassing because the first set I got required a lot of searching on behalf of the cashier - she had to go down to the storeroom and everything! So...it was kind of all for nothing in the end.

Oh well, maybe the'll have a nice bin there or something I can buy...I don't have a kitchen bin right now and I really need one.

Right, on that note, I'm off!

10:11pm: Yes! Thanks to the manual I bought from the sewing site, I've been able to get the overlocker my aunt gave me all those months ago to work! So cool! :OD I can't wait to overlock my purple shirt hems to keep them from fraying and stuff. You're supposed to be able to create a rolled hem with it, but it needs a different foot for that and alas that's not with it. I guess I could ask my aunt if it's it's in her house somewhere.

Moving on, I decided to buy the sausage dog print pjs! It turned out a little different than planned though, because the Target at Warringahh Mall only had a top in size 12, somehow the pants had gone missing. I considered buying a size 14 instead...but decided to go with just the top because that meant I got it for half price, although it did leave me without pants!

However, I solved that problem when I went to Warriewood Square which I went to because I had some things from Coles, and the one I went to in Dee Why didn't have any of my bread left and I also went to the K-Mart there and found some awesome PJ pants.

Who says cats and dogs don't get along! :OD Pretty fab, no? So fab in fact that I changed into them when I got home after having my shower - I'd planned to go to the gym today, but my lower leg is still sore - at 3pm!

I'm planning to go to the gym tomorrow, but I'm a bit concerned about the state of my place, I've been slacking again. I really need to stop doing that. :OP

Anyway, I better wrap this entry up, but before I do - here's the Meme:

1. What was the last stage play you saw? Gee...I think it might have been Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, which was based on a children's book by May Gibbs, it was pretty good!

2. Which film genres do you like most, and which least? Like most: Comedy (although not gross-out comedy) Like Least: Horror, don't even wanna watch that.

3. Why do some people seem always to have some kind of drama in their lives, while others apparently have very little? Dunno...I guess some people are more likely to talk about it? Or know a lot of people or like to live on the edge. Other people are less likely to talk about what's going down with them.

4. One element of classic tragedy is the hero’s tragic flaw. What’s yours? Procrastination, I fear! :OP

5. What are some lines of a play’s or film’s dialogue you can recite from memory? "If my calculations are correct...when this baby hits 88 miles per hour...you're gonna see some serious shit." Doc Brown Back to the Future is the first that comes to mind!

OK better head off, all this talk of cleaning makes me want to tidy up the house a bit before I go to bed!

Goodnight all!

10:57pm: And it's pretty bad! And here I was thinking yesterday that the weather people had been incorrect, since they had said there would be rain all the way from Thursday to next Tuesday and yesterday it was surprisingly clear. But then the rain began last night, at points it was hammering down on the roof. And to add to that is the wind, it's been blowing a gale out there! This does not bode well for tomorrow morning and my ice skating plans. My car is quite small and there has been times when I've been driving it in and the wind has blown very strongly and I've felt like it was going to push me off the road! I really don't wanna drive for 20kms in weather like that!

But I missed out on ice skating last week! And I bought new tights to wear and everything...so fingers crossed it'll be a bit calmer tomorrow, but I dunno, apparently there's meant to be a big storm, I didn't watch the news, but I just checked the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and apparently the winds will go right down to go away late morning. Fingers crossed.

As it happened this morning the crappy weather wasn't enough to keep people away from the shopping centre in Mona Vale. In fact the reverse happened, the place was utterly crowded to the extent there was no parking spots to be found. Not out on the street (although you're not supposed to park there for more than an hour before 12:30 on Saturday anyway), not on the upper levels of the shopping centre and certainly not in the underground car park. And I was already running late! It was terrible! I had to call the Library and fortunately one of my co-workers answered so they at least knew I was on my way. In the end I had to park on a street quite a way from the library and ended up with soggy boots walking to the library. And...of course I ended up seeing a spot in the bloody underground car park as I walked through it. It was too late by then though! I did at least get a ride back to my car after work with one of my co-workers, although the rain wasn't too bad at that time.

But like I said, it's set in now and the internet has just decided to conk out, pain n the ass! Lucky for me I have my phone and I can use it's data, but it still sucks.

What doesn't suck is...Project Purple Shirt is completed! The button holes proved to be a challenge, but I conquered them! I put the shirt on for a bit, jury is still out on the shortness. Perhaps if I don't lift my arms abovemy head I'll be OK? Although sometimes at the library I do have to reach up high, but then like I said maybe I can just put an undershirt on.

Now, I'm sure you're all excited so...drumroll please!

Here it is!

Pretty nice if I do say so myself...Though I'm not sure if I should wear it tomorrow or my new grin striped one...the purple one has some dressmaker's marker on it, although apparently that's supposed to just come off with a damp cloth.

Right, time has passed quite quickly, so I better do the Memes and head off!

Bring it! )

OK, time to hit the hay, I'm looking forward to my flannette sheets!

Goodnight all!

11:04pm: Huzzah! Although after going to all the trouble of finding this thin rubber tubing stuff for her whiskers, I decided, "What the Hell" and just made the whiskers out black felt.

Here's Pusheen from the front and from the side! Granted she's not as fat as the official Pusheen plushes not sure if that's because the stuffing I'm using is super soft or what. But I still think she looks positively adorable! Squishes her tight! :OD

In other news, Mrs S got back to me, she'll be back on Monday and has asked me to resume my carer duties on Tuesday at 9:30am. Fingers and toes crossed that this'll be just like riding a bicycle! It'll be super awkward if I have to relearn everything! I hope my muscles are still as strong since I've been slacking on the gym workouts, I went after work today and had to decrease the weight on several machines. I guess that could just be because they don't work exactly the same as the ones at my old gym.

I am however, quite bummed to discover that there's no leg curl or abdominal crunch machine at my new gym. Dang...how am I gonna work my calves and abs? :OP I guess I could ask the internet.

Although it's just occurred to me, with Mrs S coming back at the cold weather starting to set in I really should get that flu shot...how long does that take to kick-in anyway? Because it'd be some bull-shit if I got the shot and then coincidentally got sick. Ah well, better get onto that on Monday, I guess!

Yawn, I'm sleepy and have to head to bed soon, but before I go, here's the Meme, including last week's Friday5 that I couldn't do because the website wouldn't load last week.

2. What’s the most you’ve spent on something you use as protection for something expensive? Uh...I'm not sure, I'm pretty cheap sooo...although if I ever get those reverse sensors installed in my car it'd be that.

10:54pm: I'm back in the black! Turns out when I checked my account yesterday my library pay hadn't yet gone in, which is a big relief because being behind the 8th ball finance-wise isn't a good idea.

In other news, Project Pusheen Plush is almost completed! Here's a pic of her with her front paws, back paws, the tail which I finally got right, whoo!

Annnnd here she after stuffing! She doesn't sit up exactly, whoops and perhaps that's because the stuffing I used is very soft, but that just makes her super squeezable! :OD I'm so proud of myself! All that needs to be done is to find the right kind of material for whiskers...I'm not sure what to use though...pipe cleaners don't seem quite right but I can't think of anything else. I suppose I'll check that out at the fabric shop in Mona Vale tomorrow after work.

Speaking of which, I better haul ass to bed now, because work starts at 9:30 tomorrow which means I need to get up at 8:30 which is the time I've been setting my alarm this week, but more often then not I turn off the alarm and nap for a bit more. :OP Can't have that.

Hmmm, The Business is on...and apparently there's going to be a oversupply of apartments along the Eastern seaboard soon...well, I hope so! Otherwise I'm never getting into the housing market.

Oh and got an email from the university I applied to be a Library Technician, no interview. Boo... Ah well it would have been a long slog to work if I'd been lucky.

Right! And now I'm off.

Goodnight!
