Commentary: October 2003 Archives

If so, then arrest me :) Cause it tastes a whole lot better than the cheap stir fry beef you can buy. It also means I've had scotch fillet four nights in a row.. does it get any better than that? :)

  • Jurassic Park was released, changed majors at uni
  • I had pneumonia and missed two weeks of uni
  • Olympic city announced (The winner is .. Syd-a-ney)
  • I tought myself to touch type

  • I love daylight savings, it rocks. They should start it at the end of August like they did during the Olympics.

    Spent far too much time this weekend reading Harry Potter and The Belgariad, but achieved almost everything else I needed to this weekend so it's all good. Not only that, I'm not dreading going to work tomorrow, which is also a good thing.

    Feeling hungry though - it definitely doesn't feel like dinner time though, it's too bright.

    ok I'm being a really good girl at the moment and chucking out piles of stuff (ok a great big pile of plastic bags). There are Granny Mays bags, bookshop bags, record shop bags (including Brashs bags - stores that don't exist anymore), pet shop bags, Grace Bros bags, Myer bags, clothing store bags. All bar a few of them are going. I actually used to label the bags with what I bought in them, like a lot of my David Bowie and Queen cds. 13 years on I think I can let go.

    My problem is definitely one of forgiveness. To forgive someone is actually very liberating. It means you can start afresh and don't have to hold up the whole act of holding a grudge. I've always had problems with forgiveness. Usually with people that give me suicidal thoughts. For some reason I can't get past those. But I have two big opportunities, and a myriad of little ones, in the near future to practise forgiveness. I'll try it out and let everyone know how it goes.

    Half empty

    You know how you're supposed to be able to tell if a person is optimistic or pessimistic by whether they think a glass is "half full" or "half empty" ? Well I think that is a load of rubbish. A glass is half empty if it is half way through being drunk. It is half full if it is being filled up. It all depends on which direction the liquid is heading. It also means that a glass is more likely to be half empty than half full, because it's only half full for that moment right in the middle of pouring the glass at the beginning of the drink.

    Jurassic Park

    Good grief, it's been 10 years since Jurassic Park was released. I saw it the day it was released. I was at uni at the time and saw it on the first morning. I'm now watching it again for the first time in years.

    If it hadn't been for that movie, this web page very well may not exist. There's a whole story behind it here. The movie influenced the major I took at uni, which led me to the people I met and the career I ended up in.

    It wasn't even that great a movie. I enjoyed the book more. I actually read the book in a day and a half the same day my mid-year 2nd year exams finished in 1993. But watching the movie has brought back all sorts of memories.

    Another thing I did was write a review on all the reviews on the movie for a "general studies" subject. So I did all sorts of reading about the movie and all the associated stories on genetics, and taped and watched at least a dozen different documentaries and specials. Fun times :)

    It's amazing how *normal* Meatloaf looks, and how *odd* he comes across in interview .. (at least he is in this interview with Rove at the moment).

    http://www.this-or-that.org/ is gone for good, according to the rather upset sounding note on the webpage. Poor Christine.

    Another one of my exes gets married tomorrow. Well, strictly speaking he can't be called an ex, since we were never officially in a "relationship". But it was more than "just friends" for seven months, so I suppose that counts for something. I actually went to the weddings of my last two exes, and both times I felt a little weird, so perhaps it's a good thing I wasn't invited.
