Looks whats I's gots



Now, I may be the least girliest girl, but it seems that sometimes I just can't help myself... Myer had a sale on yesterday and today, and an email in my inbox gave me an extra 7.5% off - once D'Jen let me know they were synthetic I couldn't resist this Guess bag when it was only $90 (normally $140!!!) after I'd drooled over them for so long! The thing is, I love him SOOOO much I don't want to put my stuff in him or take him anywhere.

And the puzzle? The Hun's friend in Japan (who's taking us around next year) sent it to his own parents house for The Hun to pick up - he just never got round to picking it up. We think it's because he knows The Hun HATES puzzles, ESPECIALLY Escher ones, and because he knew I'd tried at least once before but given up (remember this?).

When it's finished, it should look like this:

*fingers crossed*

What a monkey

Monkey is my polite term of undearment - "Stop acting like a pack of monkeys" I'll tell my 6yo martial arts students, when what I'm thinking involves more asterisk's's's and ampersands.

Dot Points for the Lazy Day

Oh man, today was the BEST weekend day I've had in a looong time. No commitments, minimal chores, napping, gorging - totally brill!

  • I went to a wedding yesterday - it was luvverly! One of the grooms brothers sang 'Ave Maria' solo and I was tearing up. *sighs* This was tempered by the groom dropping the ring AND the pen, and the singing boy forgetting the words at one point.
  • For this wedding, I got my haircut - my usual girl wasn't in, so I had someone new and got a slightly different fringe - it's looking quite William Sledd and I must say I'm loving it more and more!
  • Due to the sheer number and styles but lack of 'style', I wore the 'runner up' in the 'dress me for the races' competition.
  • I also bought my first adult shoes - they're bronze and pointy toed and slingbacked to match the dress, but they will be getting much more wear, I herby declare!
  • I am determined to buy a camera cord tmr so I can update with some better (yellow faced) pictures.
  • I hosted my first Nutrimetics party - and it was NOWHERE near as painful as I feared! I'm getting a pedicure/massage kit, an overnight bag and some bronzey glittery powder. This summer will be the summer of the feet. Also - the lady was lovely enough to provide me with a list of products that aren't vegan friendly so I could order them.
  • I picked up one of these yesterday (Youngest bro ordered one at the same time but I physically went in to get mine after waiting for the call and calling them myself - BOO EzyDvd). So far I've watched two episodes twice each (one without commentary, once with). Reminds me of how I spent my time before moving out of home.
  • I also bought TalkMan - it should be pretty helpful overseas, but I wish it taught the reading thing too.
  • I think I am turning Nana - gf2 was regaling us with her latest snag and she felt she had to introduce the story with 'you probably won't approve, especially you Enny' and put up with my bright-eyed, hands-over-mouth squealing all the way through her story. That and my 'interest' at one of the wedding guests vomming in the bathroom, continuing to drink, and then take the best man home (after being warned not to and watch him grind all over a few of the other guests (one other in particular)).
  • I witnessed THE worst behaviour by an adult I have EVER seen in my life this week - I never would have thought a grown adult public servant (and grandfather nontheless) would behave in such a way that they would be asked to leave a training course due to rudeness. But it happened. And was deserved. And it's everyone elses fault but his - of course.
  • The 200sx gets payed for and driven away tmr - all things going according to plan. FINALLY.
  • Oh! And The Hun is going to be a Godfather! Needless to say, bad Italian accents and jokes are being thrown about our house willy-nilly, but it is all quite exciting and lovely and the such.

Flavour of the day

1. When you looked at yourself in the mirror today, what was the first thing you thought?
"I have Oreo in my teeth". (Please note that this is only because I don't really take a look at myself in the mirror in the morning, this was after morning tea).

2. How much cash do you have on you?
In my wallet? About $40 I think, plus shrappers.

3. What’s a word that rhymes with “DOOR?”
Whore! (Ah MAH mah!)

4. Favorite planet?
Saturn. So pretties!

5. Who is the 4th person on your missed call list on your cell phone?
The Conder house, making it The Hun.

6. What is your favorite ring tone on your phone?
'Scatman' as it means The Hun is calling, and not a wrong number, or a telemarketer, or someone calling about Martial Arts that will ask ten minutes worth of questions and then never turn up.

7. What shirt are you wearing?
This weather is all over the place so I got a martial arts sloppy joe thing.

8. Do you “label” yourself?
I think so - I do seem to spend a lot of time calling myself vegan (there's been a lot of talk about food this week), but I'm also 'Aries', 'Hungry' 'ENFP' and 'Defecto'.

9. Name the brand of the shoes you’re currently wearing?
They're the last pair of animal shoes I 'got' before making 'the switch' - uggies from that shop in Fyshwick - I couldn't just chuck them out so I'm giving them the love they deserve.

10. Bright or Dark Room?
Super Sunny in the daytime, lamplit at night.

11. What do you think about the person who took this survey before you?
I've read this about six times today, so they're all in the blogroll and all lovely and a fantastic read!

12. What does your watch look like?
Omega Constellation - Dadsy got an Omega for his 21st so it's become a bit of a tradition. Spoilt? Yes. Love it? Absolutely.

13. What were you doing at midnight last night?
Sleeping! I'm lame.

14. What did your last text message you received on your cell say?
"Thanks :) it is (##) (#####) st, (#######)... Will c u tom :)" We're taking an ex-Chifley housemate to a wedding tmr and I can NEVER remember her address.

15. Where is your nearest 7-11?
I saw one of these types of shops in the city while I was on training - I didn't know we had any!

16. Whats a word that you say a lot?
Honkies. I use it as a term of endearment.

17. Who told you he/she loved you last?
The Hun, last night after I told him I wanted to set up the Nutrimetics neck wrap and eye stuff on him, and before I tapped him on the forehead and told him to get real (not about the neck wrap - I thought that would be fun!).

18. Last furry thing you touched?
Maxibon the puppy-wup!

19. How many drugs have you done in the last three days?
Three redeyes, three glasses of Pepsi Max, Five pints of diet cordial, two raspberry cruisers and LOTSa junk food. Also some parmesan that the RUDE staff at Barocca (in the city) served me:

We were on training this week and they take you out to lunch each day. From the pre order menu I selected the vegetable risotto with the comment (- Fetta, VEGAN). The secretary double checked it with me, then sent the order through (printed out) to the restaraunt. With our pre order we were served over half an hour after arriving (the group after us sat down, ate and were cleaned up and left before we got our meals - we didn't even get our bread. I got the meal and looked at it, but figured that The Hun's dad had made vegan risotto that looked a lil gluggy, so it might be ok. I ate half a forkful and put it down straight away - it tasted cheesy and all I could smell was cheese and it was stringy when I moved the fork. I asked the waitress if it had any cheese in it and she replied 'if you ordered no fetta, then there is no fetta in it'; I said that I ordered no cheese at all and she replied again with 'if you ordered no fetta, then there is no fetta' and then walked off. I didn't trust her, so I just left it. When the course dude (who had also requested no cheese in his) went to pay the bill, he mentioned that I hadn't eaten mine because it tasted like cheese, the waitress stalked past our table to the kitchen window and said for everyone to hear 'Some lady on table seven reckons she can taste fetta in her risotto but she ordered no fetta and I already told her there's no cheese in it'. After a bit of a discussion with the cook she came back and told me that there was in fact 'just a tiny bit of parmesan in it' (I didn't even know parmesan could DO that stringy mozzarella thing!) and that 'next time I should indicate that I mean no cheese at all, not just fetta - I pointed out to our faxed menu that it very clearly said ' - Fetta, VEGAN, No Animal Products' (the secretary had added the last bit so they were doubley clear). She asked if I wanted them to cook up something else, but I figured that after the long wait we had on preorder there wasn't time to do that, so we left (after I was given a free coffee voucher ('SIF!)


20. How many rolls of film do you need developed?
I have an underwater camera that I got from Eldest Bro's gf with some shots left to take on it - I can never work out when I'm going to use it so I forget to take it.

21. Favorite age you have been so far?
23 was pretty good, I think.

22. Your worst enemy?
Fear. Oooh - deep. But it's true when you think about it.

23. What is your current desktop picture?

This one:

I didn't realise how long I've had it on there (I don't spend too much time staring at the desk top) so I've changed it to this one (which is my most common one):

24. What was the last thing you said to someone?

I woulda thought you'd feel it earlier than that if it was the case”. In response to The Hun musing whether his headache was due to lack of caffeine.

25. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to fly what would it be?
I'd take the money - my fear of flights would stop me from making use of it - with a million I could buy a house and "invest" and other grown up stuff.

26. Do you like someone?
I also like most people.

27. The last song you listened to?
The opening theme from Band of Brothers.

28. What time of day were you born?

29. Whats your favorite number?
Mine is also 27!

30. Where did you live in 1987?
Gowrie - lived there my entire life until I almost 22.

31. Are you jealous of anyone?
I have THE biggest green eyed monster that sneaks out every so often - It ain't pretty.

32. Is anyone jealous of you?
I would say it's not very likely. At all.

33. Where were you when 9/11 happened?
I just got dropped off after seeing a movie with the stoopid ex (I think it might have been that movie about the two snipers in the war where the guy has sex with the slutty girl in the room with the other soldiers? I didn't like it) and the bro's were in the loungeroom as it had just come on on tv (interupting whatever they were watching) - I remember watching it fairly late that night.

34. What do you do when vending machines steal your money?
Put more money in and get two and then b!tch to everyone I can about it.

35. Do you consider yourself kind?
When fear doesn't stop me, yeah. Often I'm too afraid to offer a hand or tell someone they've left their lights on/groceries behind.

36. If you had to get a tattoo, where would it be?
I've got my tat already, but if I HAD to get another one, it'd be on my foot/feet. I don't know what exactly, and I'm not going to think about it too long because "I'm not allowed" to have any more.

37. If you could be fluent in any other language, what would it be?
At the moment, Japanese. Though French and Italian tie second (Frech is sexy, but The Hun has Italian ancestry, and gf2 speaks it too!

38. Would you move for the person you loved?

39. Are you touchy feely?
No! I HATE massage and I fumble around with hugs and stuff. Sorry fellas.

40. What’s your life motto?
I guess it would be 'Serenity; Courage; Wisdom; Compassion' (from my tat).

41. Name three things that you have on you at all times?
Nana's necklace, earrings and belly stud.

42. What’s your favourite town/city?
Melbourne so far.

43. What was the last thing you paid for with cash?
Spring Rolls and Vermicelli at Veggie House.

44. When was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper and mailed it?
Mail?! Aww man, proddly when me and my cousin used to mail each other letters with the matching stationary kits we were given (what ELSE are you supposed to do with them?!).

45. Can you change the oil on a car?
I can take it to the mechanics.

46. Your first love: what is the last thing you heard about him/her?
That he had met an internet girlfriend from Perth and her dad was paying to fly her over to meet him here. Oh yeah.

47. How far back do you know about your ancestry?
Not that much really - I don't know all that much about Mumsy's side, but Dadsy's Grandma was terrifyingly scary, he had an aunty that was raised as a cousin, and a relative that was killed by a lightning ball that came down the chimney and killed someone, causing another relative to be terrified of EVERYTHING (I think that's where I got it from). There were also some rellies that got lost in the Goldrush and were helped out by some Germans, so they took their surname and passed it on as a middle name (AND THAT'S HOW I GOT MY MIDDLE NAME).

48. The last time you dressed fancy, what did you wear and why did you dress fancy?
Oh y'all know this one - I wore a swirly dress, silver heels and a tiara for the Hens Day.

49. Does anything hurt on your body right now?
My head. But only a little.

50. Have you been burned by love?
Hasn't everyone?

This is the worlds population as I write.

That's a whole lot of people.

A whole lot of people doing everyday things, all the time. Cooking, cleaning, bathing; teaching, learning, thinking; laughing, crying, loving.

A whole lot of people are with the one they love - millions and millions. And yet, it's so easy to feel that you are the only one in the world, the only one in your country, the only one in your town, the only one that you know that could possibly love, or be loved, or know the love that you are in now.

But stop and think.

And look at that number again.

You and your love are only two.

There are so many more than you are, so many that have been where you are now (be it long in the past or not long enough gone) and there are so many more that will be there one day.

So stop and think again.

Stop and think.

For what you have now is not so special. It so much less than 'one in a million'. There are so many millions more than you are.

The world is not just for you - it is for millions and millions.
This love is not just for you - it has been had, is being had and will be had by millions and millions.
These words are not just for you - they are for all of us. Those who can not, should not and will not accept it, say it, hear it.

iTunes, youTunes, we all tunes for DEIGHTFUL JEN!

I told d'jen and lulu I was gonna do it, so here's my version of d'jens iPod meme.

Please note that as my iPod buddy is completely ROOTED I've had to use iTunes... which is ALSO completely ROOTED as 'we' (read: The Hun) recently redid the file extensions on all music on my lappy, making them unrecognisable to iTunes - there may be only a limited amount of options for this - so I've linked to youtube and lyrics where I can (sing along if you know em)!

If you reached the top of Mount Everest, you would shout:
"Ants Marching" - Dave Matthews Band.
Fair Call - This is one of my fav yell out loud singing songs, especially the chorus: "Take these chances; Place them in a box until a quiter time; Lights down, you up and die". Could also be seen as an indication that I should relish the moment for later... Also, everything would look reaaaally small from up there (if you could actually see anything other than white!

The next time you stand up in front of a group of people, you'll say:
"How many mics" - The Fugees.
Hrm - this one is harder as I haven't even heard this before - I'm presuming it's one The Hun has on here so that he could get it to his computer. I think it's about rapping wars, so I'm guessing I'll be mad drunk next time I stand up in a front of a group of peeople to be saying "I used to be underrated; Now I take iron, makes my s*** constipated; I'm more concentrated"... One thinks I best control myself while visiting The Hun's parents and grandparents tonight...

Your favorite thing to say when drunk is:
"Try Again" - Aaliyah feat Timbalind.
Perhaps more likely than talking about constipation... Perhaps if I were wanting to dance I would request it, for heavin forbid it suggest I get all up with the boys when drinking. Or maybe it could be seen as me egging people on. Who knows (lyrics)?!

Your message to the world:
"Closing Vamp" - Elvis (Concert - World Tour)
Heh heh - I can't find the sound for this one! If there is anyone out there who knows the World Tour, the music at the end is like his theme song.. da da DAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, da da DAAAAAAAAAAAAA... It always makes me think of what an awesome time they must have had then, so I guess my message is just to enjoy!

When you think of your best friend you think:
"On the floor 2001" - Kickin Hard 5
This is like an intro to a dance CD - like Skitz Mix. I does harp me back to first year of Uni when I'd go out to the city like twice a week with a bunch of my guy friends - they were fantastic times!

Your deepest secret:
"LAMC" - Tool
I haven't actually heard this one before - It starts with a phone call to Los Angeles Municipal Court (lyrics here), so perhaps this has something to do with a trip to LA where I'm going to do something naughty. Or my frustration with those machine answerphone talky things... People try to explain it here.

Your innermost desire:
"Livin La Vida Loca" - Ricky Martin.
P.S - I wish I could dance like the girl in the clip/have someone say that stuff about me/live the crazy life.

Your oldest memory makes you think:
"Lose Control" - Missy Elliot feat Ciara & Fat Man Scoop
How Bizaare! The song lyrics I take part of my blog "about me" from! So mebbe in terms of the blog it's one of the earliest memories (even tho I remember most of the "about me" before I had this one)...? Or mebbe it was me losing control in my nappie...

Somewhere in your wedding vows, you should have included:
"This Life" - Martha Wainwright
Hrm. Now THIS does note bode well. Even if we took just the title, it would insinuate a marriage for now. It gets worse when you look at the lyrics, eg: "I got the gun for my head; And I want to break free instead"; "Be nice to your girl; She knows that you could; Live without her" and "This life is boring; This; This life right now is snoring". GOOD THING I'M NOT ALREADY MARRIED. *phew*

On your deathbed, you'll whisper:
"Sleep to Dream Her" - Dave Matthews Band
Awww - lyrics here. I believe it's about a guy singing about a women he misses (she could be dead?!) who doesn't hold him in high regard as he does her. Which is actually not a very good deathbed song, as that's more of a 'Btw I didn't really love you that much". Damn reading these lyrics.

Your friends say behind your back:
"Go with the flow" - Queens of the Stone Age
The lyrics insinuate they can't get me to stay and can't get me to go away but they hang around anyway. Which I guess could be pretty fair in that I've pretty here and there... I can be very friendly and also very snarky and standoffish. It also It also has a very sex filmclip.

You say behind your friend's back:
"#41" - Dave Matthews Band
(Can you tell I heard DMB?!) . It's a bit of a bittersweet lovesong actually (lyrics) - about being sad in the past and independent and asking why they won't be happy either. Which is guess is true - I've been sad lots in the past, and got some help from some friends and not some help from others (but I never really asked) and I do often hope that my friends do have happiness.

Your opinion of Blogging:
"Joga" - Bjork
The last verse sums it up quite nicely: "All that no-one sees You see, What's inside of me; Every nerve that hurts, You heal, Deep inside of me (oo-oohh); You don't have to speak, I feel".

When you wake up in the morning, you mutter:
"You don't know me" - Harry Connick Jr
(I could only find the Mr Buble version on Youtube)
How sad! Mebbe pre-The Hun? Or mebbe when I have the shits and he accuses me of stealing the doona again...

If you found yourself lost on a desert island, you'd yell:
"Taxi Ride" - Tori Amos
I'd have to be hallucinating to call for a taxi on a deserted island. I've never actually listened to this before (it's not on youtube), but the lyrics seem to indicated I'm pretty p!ssed off being deserted there... "Even a glamorous b!tch can be in need"... I think there's something in there for all of us.

Right now, your feelings are:
"Why's Everybody Always Pickin' on Me' - Bloodhound Gang
Heh heh - pity party! Lyrics here, it's a bit of a joke really. Unless ou guys really ARE always picking on me...?

What's your excuse for reposting this music survey?:
The Love Below (Intro) - Outkast.
YEAH BABY - take that as you will!

Your life's soundtrack:
"Exchange" - Massive Attack
It's pretty laid back and cruisey, a little sad, and lyrics that are a bit of a warning and a guide for life...

The day you fell in love was the day that:
"Sweetest Thing" - Lauryn Hill
She has two songs called the same thing and the one that came up doesn't have a video - it has these lyrics - not these ones (which is also quite nice!) - and is about God (I think).

You Scream During Sex:
"Love Me Tender" - Elvis
ITunes - I keep you OUT of the bedroom for a reason! Seriously though, how sweet is that?! I'm so glad it wasn't like "I want to f()ck you like an animal" or "My Humps"!

Your farewell message to the readers of this music survey:
"Hudson Line" - Mercury Rev.
I have no idea what this is or WHERE it came from, but it does sound like a bit of a farewell song. So farewell!

Qld and bad timing - help me out?


I got the email from the QLD work lady re: dates for training up there. It has to be two consecutive days, and the only times the training rooms were free were a two day slot in December, and two x two day slots in January.

The fact that my boss (if she's still my boss - tho it's irrelevant at this point in time) is on leave for most of January, made December the only real option.

Dates: Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th of December.

Locked in.

I can go earlier or I can stay a bit later, or both, however, before you dictate how long and when I should be up there, these are the other considerations.

Friday 15th December: Branch Christmas Party lunch
Note: I wasn't that excited about this.

Friday 15th December: Social Club Christmas Party
Notte: Unsure if I was that excited about this - last year a girl tried to undo my halter neck top - they're always a bit of let down.

Saturday 16th December/Sunday 17th Decmber: Supposed to be going to coast with the bro's,The Hun, Eldest Bro's gf, and two or three cousins.

Sunday 17th December: Potentially the date of the 'family' Christmas party, where all the rellies get together to celebrate Christmas earlier (was supposed to be Saturday 23rd but Eldest Bro and Eldest Bro's gf got the ok to have a party for her/their friends at my parents house that day).

Tuesday 19th December: Dentists appointment I've had booked in for like 6 months.

It is reasonable to expect that I'd have to be there before the Monday so that I can set up the training stuff, and I don't think I can get in there on weekends.... and I presume the latest I could leave would be the Wednesday. Also, the office is on Queen street (in the 400's), so I'm guessing I'd be located round there somewhere.

All is full of love

(Yes, it's a Bjork reference - so sue me*!)
(*Meant in jovial fashion only, please don't!)

All you people doing 365 days are AWESOME! I'm loving the whole 'OMG - THAT'S what you look like!!!'.

D'Jen, Lulu, Mars - Keep it up!
Anyone else out there doing it? Lemme know! I promise to swap a pic with you (lulu/d'jen - I don't know if I have with you or not - lemme know too!).

Heh, look at me whoring myself out over the internet. Awesome.

I'm also loving that there are a number of people who are doing that NoMoBlo whatever thing, where they post every single day - all the more for me to read!

I mean, seriously - just look around! Bevis' better half has popped out a lovely sprog, I got a CD from Adam's delightful gf, Jane is still doing marvellously, GBE has an interview, I got a podcast dedication on the Desci&Bob show and Susanne is back in the biz!

What is the source for all this delerium?

Is it due to my mini version of The Huns tummy bug that's making me feel thinner and causing the sugar in my So Good to go STAIGHT to my head?!

Is it due to Britney FINALLY dumping K-fag?! (I LOVE YOU BRITNEY!!!)

Is it due to the terrible images from Children of Men being further behind me?

Is it due to news that Lily Allen will ALSO be at BDO?

Or is it the lifting of a weight off my shoulders, a golden lining to my recent stormcloud?

There's been some development - there was another discussion yesterday and I did my very best to try and explain that ALL work has been done on time and well and awesome but she then went on to say there's a mini restructure in the works that will see me pretty much bossless and/but on higher duties for three months, with my 'new' position advertised as a promotion (more money, more recognition, more work, more enrichment, more satisfaction, more career building...).

It was also pointed out that due to the alarming increase in the amount of work I've had to do for some staff in QLD, they're going to fly me up to Brissy to run a training course for two days... soonish.... and I'm HOPING to pad it out a day or two longer...

What do you QLD ppl think?! ;o)

Warts and all

Remember how I told you I visited the doctor about the ovarian cancer vaccine (here)?

Well, I forgot to mention that I went in the other week and got myself the needle. Yessireebob.

When I visited her the time mentioned above, she gave me a script for the Gardasil - even though I practically had to BEG for it and she wasn't all that enthusiastic about it. That same appointment she gave me the slips to get a blood test done for my iron, folate and b12, and when I called in for THOSE results, I was asked to come in to 'chat' about by b12 levels. Seems my b12 was 5 below what it should be, and I was to buy some b12 tablets. AND SHE COULDN'T JUST TELL ME OVER THE PHONE BUT HAD TO CHARGE ME $50 FOR IT! She also took that opportunity to rave about Gardasil as she had been on a few conferences (suss, much?!) and really pressed me into getting the script and doing it - this time I was the one talking about not needing it that much as I'm already in a committed long term relationship etc etc.

But, seeing as Dadasy had offered to cover the $130 charge for the jab, I decided to go through with it.

And it hurt!!!

It's the first time I've reaaally felt a pain in my hand from a needle in the arm, however it may have had something to do with being told that 'this is first time I've administered this... let me go next door and ask Dr so-and-so if he's had any problems when he's done it..... oh - he said he's only given it to his daughters... here we go!'.

And the point of my ramblings (besides talking about ovaries to anxiousify the boys) is that in telling people that I've had the needle done, I've had an almost alaraming number of people tell me a) they haven't heard about it, and that b) they haven't had a pap test.





If you (laydeez) or anyone you know (laydeez and gentz) has NOT had a pap test and are over the age of 18 or have ever been sexually active, PUHLEASE get over yourself and visit the doctor.

You ain't got NOTHIN down there they haven't seen before.

And if you have, then you're damn lucky they're seeing it.

At Laaaaaaaaaaaaaarst


Exams are over for the year (1.5 semesters of 6 semesters down!) and I cannot WAIT for Christmas.

Having the two of the squooshed up so close together in the first week of exams is somewhat a double edged sword - paying off a week of headaches, eating total rubbish (and the constipation that comes with it), blatant procrastination and pangs of stomach wrenching guilt for the joy that comes with knowing that it's all over very quickly.

Both exams went fairly well I think (I HOPE!) - I felt very underprepared for both, but got a sense of calm once I was in there and saw the questions. I wrote for a full three hours for the accounting test and didn't use the 2 pages of handwritten notes as much as I thought I would, but I would like to vent at the site of the international student sitting in front of me that was allowed to enter with a page of typed notes. HULLO? It was said in the lectures and the outline and in the lecture notes and in the tutes and in the exam timetable that you were allowed a double sided HAND WRITTEN page of notes! Though I guess I should be just as angry at the 3 or 4 volunteers (?!) that man the exams checking exams and notes, that didn't pull him up on that. I answered 90 - 95 of the 100 points worth.

Org B also went well - I wrote four essays in two and a half hours - as soon as my pen was down, my hand was up to leave. I'm all for double checking and all that, but once you've written an essay in exams, there's no going back on it, so I was hella glad to get outta that hall.


So yeah, where was I?

Yeah, uni's over. So here's what I'm looking forward to...

- Sunny weather.

- Weekends.

- Cruisers on weeknights.

- Taking some leave here and there just to bum around.

- Hosting Nutrimetics Party.

- Hosting Tupperware Party.

- Work Christmas Party.

- Team Christmas Party.

- Buying some flat laceless shoes (or maybe two pairs>!)

- Dadsy's birthday.

- Youngest Bro's birthday.


- Early Christmas party with the rellies.

- Trip to the coast with the brothers and two or three of the cousins (including a trip past Mogo WHICH I LOVE!).

- Going to Sydney for a w/end with gf1 and gf2.

- A wedding.

- A haircut.

- Martial Arts Christmas Party.

- Maybe a trip to QLD to assit in martial arts camp in January of February.

- BIG DAY OUT in Sydney!

- New Years (what ARE we going to do?!).

What are YOU looking forward to over the Summer Season?

(PS - Am considering buying a ticket to see Chris Isaak in Wollongong, but would hafta sit by myself as Mumsy and Dadsy are going but have already bought tix. Thoughts?)

What has these last two days of study leave taught me?

A retrospective insight from a tired and gonky eyed Enny...

1) Studying in The Huns study is more productive than studying on the couch or in bed.

2) The productiveness of the study is more likely to be affected by distractions than you ever thought possible (but at least the groceries were done, food cupboard sorted, 'My Documents' folder was tidied up, etc).

3) I am not human. I am powered by refined carbs, particularly those found in No Name Crinkle Cut Potato Chips, Loaves of white bread with seeds on top and Nuttelex all round, Thins (plain AND crinkle cut), Free-from double choc biscuits, Soy Good Chocolate 'Ice cream', popcorn, diet cordial and Redeye.

4) This unadultered craving for potato chips does not mean I'm pregnant (proven, so you can all relax now).

5) Even the most precaution(istic?) people fear that there is a chance of pregnancy when 'the time of womanly celebration' does not occur within the expected HOUR.

6) I am TOTALLY too easily influenced by things I find on the internet (WILLIAM SLEDD YOU ARE THE HOTTNESS), b!tches.

7) Accounting? Soooo not my strongpoint. How mumsy does it (and how youngest bro wanted to do it) I'll NEVER know. Like how you can you just group things under names that seem to change according to whim, flight and fancy and somehow all balance out?

8) Slowing the internet to 'share' with the ppl who have 'shared' with you, will NOT reduce the amount of time I procrastinate - it will INCREASE it as I wait for the tabs to load.

9) Blogger, Firefox and Gmail need to get their sh!t together so that I can have 3 gmail accounts open in seperate tabs WITHOUT everything wigging out and me almost accidentally posting comments with my 'real' name MORE THAN ONCE IN TWO DAYS.

10) Who procrastinates at 1am the night before an exam?! That would be me.


Update tmr evening - at least the accounting will be over and done with.

Unless I fail.
