The nuttiness never ends

All in all my birthday was a pretty suckful day. A few things did help though. Like subway for lunch, picking up some space lego in the afternoon, Luc and Lizzi's for dinner (I couldn't face going to dinner with my parents), and then firetwirling at Glebe with Striker.

Friday morning I woke up to find my fish tank siphoning itself off onto the floor. The air hose to the air stone had worked its way loose off the stop valve, so there was nothing stopping the water coming out. Fortunately it had only been going for a short time and only a centimetre or so had siphoned off. If I hadn't slept in I may have gone to work before it started and would have come home to an empty tank with 100L of water all over the floor, which would have been an absolute disaster. I repositioned the stop valve to the top of tank, so even if it comes off now, it won't be able to siphon anywhere.

Friday at work wasn't any better. Dinner at James and Georges was nice, but a little wine and I lost it a couple of times over absolutely nothing.

I had all this other stuff I wanted to write about my birthday, except it's all too depressing.

Yesterday was somewhat better. Met up with Jacqui for lunch, and we chatted for three hours at Maccas of all places. Then last night was the Jannali Girls High School reunion. It was interesting but rather strange. Most of the people I was interested in seeing weren't there, and at least one that was wasn't really interested in talking to me anyway. I actually enjoyed catching up with some of my teachers more than many of the students. But then I was always the unpopular one at school, and a teacher's pet, so that's hardly surprising.

Today I finally finished Vic's latest project that he wanted me to work on, so that was good. I'm sure there'll be plenty of bug fixing to do though.

So here I am facing another week. I'm not at all looking forward to it. In fact I'm rather dreading going back to work tomorrow.

Just realised that a search on Google for "Jannali Girls High School Reunion" brings up this page - oops :) Would have to be in one of the most negative posts I've put up in a while. Oh well. Anyways, I've uploaded photos from the night here:
