How hard is it to tell the difference between cream cheese and sour cream? Grrr. We have a million things or sour cream in the fridge, why the hell would I want more?

So whilst I was cleaning up today I found a karaoke DVD I had purchased ages ago but never used. Deciding I needed a break, I popped it into the player and sang along for a few things. Whilst learning I suck at singing I also noticed the totally bizzare clips they put along with the lyrics. And I mean totally bizzare. For Hopelessly Devoted To You (from Grease) they have this girl in a pink cowboy hat and white short shorts feeding deers and emu. Why? Then for I Wanna Dance With Somebody they had this slutty looking girl in a red dress wiggling about. Now whilst that makes a little more sense, it was very off-putting. Maybe men would want to watch it, but how many men would be singing that song? Weird.

I woke up with a massive headache today, however I haven't had a drink yet. I was going to make chocolate margs earlier but it hasn't happened. This is my first day mostly sober since the weekend. Mhmm.

Oh a HUGE high at the moment. I'm practically bouncing off the walls. Okay, so it wasn't quite the twist of destiny I was hoping for but then again I wasn't really expecting that to happen. But wow, it was so amazing. Sorry, I'm rambling away here and I should probably just interject that I went to see The Chaser's Age Of Terror Variety Hour this evening. The show itself was so fantastic, but then afterwards Dom, Craig, Julian and Chas came out to sign autographs, so I got them all to sign the T-shirt and book thing I'd bought. Yay. They were all actually really nice. Anyway I was a bit sad because Andrew wasn't coming out and Craig said he wasn't going too so yeah. BUT! We were standing around afterwards, Dad, Jane and Michael were having a drink with some other people and I was talking to Kate and most people had left by this point... anyway, all five of them came out! Woohoo! So I was a bit shy at first but I went over with Kate whilst they were waiting for a taxi and got Andrew's signature and then we ended up talking to him for like fifteen minutes and now I'm just all babbly and swooning and stuff. A few people got me to take a photo but I was kind of shaking because I was so nervous, hehe. Yes. Anyway I'll stop rambling now. But it was fantastic! If you get a chance to go to the show, definitely, definitely go!

"I waste a lot of my life looking at the internet." - David O'Doherty

I hear you, mate. I feel like half my life is spend on the net these days. It's just the easiest way to do anything - keep up with friends, order pizza, research anything, use the dictionary, my banking, dealing with the Optus morons, etc. Everything is online now. However it does come at a cost. Social interaction. Does anyone else feel like they just don't get out of the house enough anymore?

This week I seem to have done quite a lot, mostly because I've been feeling okay. Some work at the Center, swimming and then going out with Sam. Since Lance is away we've been getting in quite a lot. Shopping on Thursday, Pizza and movies on Friday, breakfast and then going to the Footy on Saturday. Busy, busy, busy. But it hasn't really been good for my eating habits. We had KFC on Thursday, Pizza on Friday, Maccas for brekky and Subway for dinner on Saturday. Oh and then snacks at the Footy as well. I think I might have to go for double the time at swimming the next few days to work it off.

Actually I've been feeling a bit frustrated with swimming. I enjoy it, even if it does make me really tired and I'm starting to feel really slow, oh and the chlorine isn't good for my skin, eyes or hair... but yes, I like it. Anyway it just doesn't seem to be having any impact yet. I mean the main reason I'm really doing this is because I feel like a human blimp. I'm so incredibly unfit. I haven't really lost any weight in the last few weeks. Although the more I think about that, the more I think it's probably my own fault because of the aforemention eating habits. I need to go on more of a health kick and start eating better to actually have this regime take some effect. Stay tuned.

Well I think that's it from me today. Bai!

I'm so exhausted. It's been a very busy weekend with all the moving, although it was kind of fun to be up at the Atherton property with people other than Dad. I drove up there with Jane and Zoe, then back down with Jane for the first half and Steve with the second, which was good since I guess usually I don't get to talk to them away from Dad. I was surprised a bit because Steve is actually into quite a few of the same bands I am, and was even at a few concerts that I've been too in the past. However all the packing and shifting furniture was not fun. I have several bruises on my arms and legs, I'm such a delicate little flower.

Other than that there hasn't been a whole lot more going on. Had a nice dinner at Sam's place on Friday night, we watched some Law and Order and then the Dark Angel movie. We're doing something again on Thursday night as well, probably late night shopping at Stockland. And then the footy on Saturday. Then the week after that - The Chaser's Age of Terror Variety Hour. Squee.

We went swimming again this afternoon, which will be the third week of doing it, I think. Was fairly quiet tonight, it seems to vary a lot, sometimes it's really crowded and other times it's not. I prefer when it's not because otherwise I feel like I'm holding everyone up. I think I need to learn some better learning techniques. Of course I probably ruined any good work I did by eating a whole packet of chips and timtams when I got home. I've had a weird craving for chocolate lately, which I'm going to blame on Easter. Usually I much more of a salty than sweet person. It's not good. I really need to be more careful about what I eat. Especially if I don't want to spend the rest of my life as a blimp.

Still waiting for the penny to drop...

All my muscles are so sore but it's kind of worth it. I've lost about two kilos and hopefully it will keep coming off. I just need to work more on not coming home, feeling exhausted and so ordering pizza or getting fish and chips on the way back.

Going to dinner with Sam tomorrow night. I don't think we've decided where yet, or if we'll just eat in. Lance leaves tomorrow so she'll probably be feeling a bit bummed out, but hopefully we can do something fun as well, to help cheer her up! She's asked if I'll go to the footy with her as well, she has tickets for the Cowboys/Bronco's game but since Lance isn't here, apparently I get to play fill-in. Actually I think they have season tickets, which is why she needs someone to go, but hopefully it will be okay.

Not a lot else to report at the moment. We're heading up to Wondecla again this weekend to continue with packing. A few of Dad's work friends will be coming to help as well, so hopefully they will make it go faster and more interesting. My driving is going well, I think I'm getting better! Some of the corners up in the mountains there are fairly scary though. I actually went over the top of the Misty Mountain last weekend, and drove up to the highest point on a tar road in Queensland... or maybe it was Australia, either way it was pretty high up. I'm really starting to look forward to seeing The Chaser when they come to Town, but am feeling a bit sad that Chris Taylor won't be part of the group for this show.

Well that's it from me. Until next time, kidlets!

current mood: good

So I went swimming again today, which makes six days in a row. Yay. I haven't seen any hgue results yet, not that I really was expecting to, but just knowing that I went and am trying to be proactive makes me feel good, so that's a start. I dusted off my old swimmers that are a bit tight but still is better than wearing my tankini thingy to try and do laps. I've been taking along my flippers, googles and cap as well. I really didn't notice how well the cap really works until I took it off (for reasons to do with my googles rather than the cap itself) and then noticed how horrible my hair felt afterwards with all the yucky chemicals from the pool in it. Plus I kept having to stop and push some of my hair out of my face, which was annoying. I'm thinking I might get a kickboard as well. I've also been looking into doing something more formal like some lessons that they have there, but at the moment it's just good because I need exercise.

We're heading up to Wondecla this weekend to start on getting things packed. We're actually leaving in like six hours, so I technically should be asleep but I suck at keeping normal hours. I will have to drag my butt out of bed and then pretend to look alive tomorrow. I figure it will be okay because I will just mask my tired-ness with grumpiness about being forced into helping with the packing. I hate packing. I hate moving. I hate lifting heavy things. I hate being in the uncomfortable truck. I hate unpacking. Just bleh. I will also be being roped into it next weekend as well, but there will be a few other people there (Dad's minions from work) which should at least make it more interesting. And the promise of Easter Eggs. Mm..chocolate.

I guess I should probably head to bed. Goodnight everyone!

I feel tired, waterlogged and kind of sunburnt. I spent an hour or so down at the pool since I'm trying to get back into swimming. It made me realise how much more unfit I've really gotten since I stopped playing volleyball and it sucks. My goggles kept leaking as well, which was really annoying because I had to keep stopping and emptying them after each lap. I don't think I put my sunscreen on long enough before I got wet, so it didn't work very well. Anyway I still feel good about it and happy that I went. I really need to start doing more exercise, and I've arranged to try and make it down there once or twice a week, which will be really good for me!

In other news, I got tickets to go and see The Chaser's Stageshow, so I'm really, really excited about that. Quite a few people I know are going on the same night, so that's fun, but I'm just going with my Dad, Jane and Michael. Geeky I know, but both Sam and Lance, and Kate and her friends already had tickets by the time I decided I could afford to go, so that was bad timing. Sam has awesome seats right at the front and I'm so jealous. Ours are about seven or eight rows back and kind of near the aisle, but still, it's going to be great! Yay!

Not much else happening right now. Next weekend I'm meant to helping Dad start moving his stuff back from Wondecla. He's gotten a storage unit near here, so that's good. We've been looking at lots of houses for sale in the sort of outskirt suburbs around here, so hopefully he'll find somewhere he wants to buy soon and I can get him out of my apartment! Heh. I actually don't mind that much, although it's nice when he goes away for a day or two so I just have a bit of alone time.

Oh, and I've been learning to drive again. Scary. Apparently I come into corners too fast and should be changing gears sooner so I'm going slower by the time I'm turning. Otherwise I think it's going well. I've lost about three L plates though, two falling off the car and one has just vanished. Hrm.

Well that's it from me for now. Hope everyone is happy, healthy and enjoying their lives!

Wow, I can't believe it's been like seven or eight months since I last posted on this. Not much has happened since then really, boring, boring, boring! However I just thought I'd write something to get my back into it, because I think it was actually a good outlet for various things. Hope everyone is happy, healthy and doing well!

Just a quick note that I'm not able to read my comments or Friends Page or even my own journal from the computer here. Not sure why it blocks just them and not the posting page, but anyway. My myspace account has a link to the side there, so you can send me a message or comment there if you want since I can read it. Or on Facebook if you have that or my email!

Hope everyone is well. I miss lots of people but it's been pretty nice here. Just trying not to think about all the stuff happening on Imperian!

9:39 am - Meh
Stressed. Very, very stressed. And it's not even 9.30am. Of course most of it is just rollover from yesterday.

Was feeling pretty exhausted with everything that had gone on over the weekend. Organising all the party stuff, then just the party itself, and having relatives up from various places. Plus I still had a few more days ahead of madly rushing about to finish packing and make sure I had everything finalised so I can go to Fiji.

Decided to take a quick break and log into Imperian. Big mistake. It was total chaos. I won't go into what happened but it was probably the worse possible thing that could. I ended up just sitting in front of the computer sobbing, which is pathetic because it's only meant to be a game. I know things are bad when I have to keep telling myself that. It's a game. No matter what I do to try and solve the problem, things are going to end up fucked anyway. And I can't even be around to deal with any fallout of any decision I make. The last time I felt this crap about Imperian was several years ago after all the political nonsense in Kinsarmar... I ended up in hospital for almost two weeks, largely because of it. I don't want to end up there again.

It's just really put a dampener on everything. I'm leaving on this amazing holiday tomorrow morning to see my mum and I was so excited. I'm meant to be finishing everything today so I'm ready to go, and all I want to do is sit on the couch with a tub of chocolate ice-cream and watch movies that give me a legitimite reason to cry.

Suckfest.

Sometimes I can't help but focus on what a horrible place the world is. I know it sounds melodramatic but sometimes I feel like the problems of the world affect me more than a normal person. I just get too overly emotional, and it's stupid but I can't help it. I know most people watch things like the News and feel sadness for the bad things that happen, but tonight I sat and watched and couldn't stop crying. It all started with the awful news about the massacre at Virgina Tech, but then there was a story about some young kid who got attacked by a dingo, and then some scenes of the funeral for a war veteran. I think I've completely lost the plot.

Or maybe I've just been feeling depressed in general. I've spent the last two days practically comatose. Just watching DVD after DvD, trying to escape from whatever meaning life has. Everything just seems like a vicious cycle that I'm continually stuck in and I don't know how to surface.

It keeps asking me if I want to restore saved data when I try to post. But what it brings up is my last post which I finished and posted. So the moral of the story is LJ is weird.

I had an awesome day on Tuesday. I decided to go to Castletown for some retail therapy. I got my hair cut. It's not totally obvious but it's about four inches shorter and it feels much nicer!! Then I bought myself an iTunes voucher, NCIS Season Two and discovered the new Women's Murder Club book by James Patterson had been released and bought that too. Yay!

Then I came home and Dad was back with my little angel of a cat. I really missed him. It was so strange, I kept thinking he was here. I was still extra careful with opening the front door, I kept walking into my room and wondering where he was (usually he spends a large portion of his time asleep on my bed) and every little noise during that night I kept getting up thinking it was him wanting to be let in. Hehe, so silly. Anyway it sounds like he had a good time in Atherton although he didn't take advantage of being allowed to go outside! Silly cat!

I watched a bit of NCIS with Dad for a while and then got on and used my iTunes vouched to buy about thirty new songs, which I'm really happy with. I think I'll have to get another soon! Hehe! I want the new Nickelback song!

So yup. Great day! The last few days have been more quiet. Watching a few episodes of NCIS every now and then. Bought some credits on Imperian *love Robin* and been playing around with a new class. A few walks and stuff, although I haven't gone swimming. Trying to organise Dad's birthday party has probably been the big then. We've narrowed it down to two places. I should probably call Jane soon actually. I want to get everything booked and invites sent out by this weekend. Had a great chat to Soph as well, which was really nice. I miss her like crazy! Sent emails to my grandparents, my brother, a few to mum and one to Cassie as well. So I'm feeling like a good little relative! Finished ALL the dishes, yay! My kitchen looks all clean and tidy now. Plus did all my own laundry, dad's laundry and all the sheets, teatowels, tablecloths, couch covers... yeah I wasn't bored at all. Hehe. Now I need to vacuum! I've gone all domestic. Meep!

I think I'll go before I keep babbling on and boring you all to death.

Ciao!

I'm staring at this white blank space right now and I haven't got the faintest clue what I actually want to say. I feel like I owe an entry or something, it's been ages since I've even visited livejournal let alone wrote a post. Sorry for all the ones I think I've probably missed... I hope everyone is doing okay.

I guess I should start by saying Happy Easter to everyone who celebrates it. Dad has gone to Wondecla with Sharma, so I have the unit to myself for the weekend. I debated about going but I had a few plans like a movie tonight with a friend and volleyball on Monday and of course stuff on Imperian.

Going to end this here for now. I'll try to post something a bit later when I feel more upbeat! Miss you guys.

For no particular reason, I'm feeling really crappy. Yesterday I had a bit of a black day, even though I was meant to go over to the Island to see Angie and visit a few people - I just turned off all the phones and stayed in bed for most of the day. I feel lonely. It sounds stupid when I verbalise it, but I just do. I thought things would be better in town, it would be easier to hang out with my friends and just do other stuff. I know the real problem in this lies in the fact that I need to figure out what to do with my life, so that I can have something to work towards, something that does take up my time. But how do I figure that out?

I'm not sure I want to play volleyball anymore. After last Monday's effort I just wanted to jump off my balcony. I just felt so angry, maybe little bits directed at certain people and most of it directed at myself, but a lot of it was just this drifting anger not aimed at anyone, even me. Usually I just go out there and try to have fun, but by the second half it just didn't feel fun anymore. Plus I think my team would be better off this season finding someone who plays half decently.

Stuff happening on Imperian so I'm going to wallow for a while. Bye.

Wow, I can finally make an entry although it's going to be a kind of short one for the moment. It's about 12.30 at night and I'm going swimming with Paul at 7am, so I need to go to bed pretty much... well a few hours ago. I will be posting a few backdated posts though that I wrote when I had no internet. But yes, the net is now up and running and I'll try to be in contact with everyone again soon, yay!

My Sophie gets back tomorrow, yayness!!! :):):)

I always think of Dave Hughes when I say this, and I know it's one of those obvious comments but I'm going to say it anyway - Ohmygod, it's so freaking HOT!!! I'm dying over here. Well maybe not dying but it's pretty crap. My dad really didn't pick a great time to decide to have our official moving date - in the middle of freaking summer.

Anyway this is going to be fairly short and sweet because I'm absolutely exhausted both mentally and physically. The last three days have just been pure moving and driving between the Island and Wondecla. Sorry to everyone who I haven't replied too, either with comments, emails or to your posts. I actually haven't been on the computer at all during this time and other than this small stop, probably won't be for another few days. I promise I'll take lots of time to do replies and stuff then, cross my heart!! And to do an actual worthwhile entry, since people keep pestering me for a proper one, hehe!

Oh well, back to some more packing. Toodles all! :)

I have no bed to sleep on tonight :(

It's funny how sometimes in life people just drift apart. Sometimes there is a reason, sometimes there isn't. But you can still miss those people.

I was talking to Steven earlier and he said 'bye, lovely' and it made me think of Tom. Now Tom, if you're reading this i this isn't a bad thingy, okay? I don't feel angry or upset or anything with you, there is no blame on either side, but we have drifted apart a fair bit. And I miss you. We used to have such a blast talking and I would laugh so much. The most important thing about friends is that they make you happy, and there just aren't many people who made me laugh and smile and feel as happy as you did. I lurves you, Muffy.

But then there are people you don't really miss so much. Sure you might see them around or hear them mentioned or even talk about them a bit for some reason, but you don't really miss them. But for some reason, that still makes me feel a bit sad. That someone was such an important and special part of your life and you don't miss the fact that they are anymore. Maybe I'm just an uncaring bitch. Most of the people I'm thinking of have done something that's upset me or pissed me off, and although I'm not angry about those things anymore, it's just not something I want to bother with anymore. It's kind of weird, but kind of good too.

I know I haven't made a proper entry in a while, I promise I'll do one soon!

I don't normally talk about sports I've been watching since I know most of you find them a bit boring (tennis and cricket) but I HAD to make a quick rant about the cricket today. James Anderson is a wanker. How dare he give Hussey a hard time about not walking?!?! He. Wasn't. Fucking. Out. You. Stupid. Dickhead. The umpire even said he wasn't out and yet you have a little fucking drama in the middle of the game because you felt he should have "walked" despite the fact he was confident he wasn't out and turned out to be RIGHT. Yes. Right. Now, I know I'm swearing a fair bit here, but kids don't read my livejournal. They do watch cricket, and they did indeed see you having your little dummy spit and swearing your head off at someone who is idolised by many Australian children. What kind of example is that? Bad sportsmanship comes to mind. If you can't hack the fact that your team can't beat ours, then go take up a different job.

And I'm done. Sorry, I just really really had to get that out. As unfortunate as Hussey's name is, I quite like the guy and he plays well. Also he actually looked embarassed about asking for a review, because of Anderson and Nixon's little spats, which I think is so wrong of them to make him feel. Right, I'm done.

Almost made it home, just a few days left. I'll do a few proper entries when I actually make it all the way back. At Paul's (my brother) and family at the moment so I can't really stay long. It's been a bit of a rollercoaster really but good overall. I've kind of missed LJ whilst I've been gone, which is funny cos I don't use it that much anymore. I kept thinking there was something I wanted to post and then couldn't, pfft! Oh well, post more later!

Bai!
