Christmas presents

| | Comments (3)

It's about that time of year when I have to start thinking about Christmas presents for people. I'm utterly hopeless at thinking up presents for people. I tend to prefer asking people what they want, and then just going out and getting it. Vouchers can be good, but are a bit of a non-event and I try to avoid giving them where possible.

I do have a wishlist going, but the things on it tend to be out of the price range that people would give as a gift. For example:

5-way power board with switches
filing cabinet
decent tweezers
new digital camera
john farnham best of cd?
fiddler on the roof cd
car cd player
dvd recorder

And a lot of them have been out of my price range also, hence I don't have them :) Others I've just never gotten around to finding.

mmm sleeeeeep

It's amazing how much more human you can feel after a decent sleep. I've had a shocker of a weeks' sleep and after losing it totally at work over something completely insignificant I came home at lunch time and slept for the afternoon. Feeling much more alive.

Apparently me little brother found this blog yesterday.. that's a scary thought, let me tell you ;) Not as bad as if my mother found it I suppose..

The sun came out!

The sun decided to come out this morning for the first time in a week, which made driving into the sun that much more painful. I also had to laugh at the speed signage on the M4. In five hundred metres on James Ruse Drive and the M4, it went from 70 to 90 to 70 to 90 to 70 to 90. How ridiculous is that?

/me needs to go back to sleep badly

Was just watching A Current Affair where they had an interview with an animal liberationist whose group fed ham to a bunch of sheep to stop them being exported to the middle east, and a Muslim leader. The interview was absolutely hilarious because the muslim dude was telling the activist that the stunt was pointless because it wasn't going to make any difference after three days when the pork passes through the sheeps' system.

But talk about a stoopid thing to do in the first place. Yes I can see why people would want to stop the sheep getting shipped on hot/humid transportation for weeks, but ultimately all they're doing is hurting the farmers, who struggle enough as it is without wingnuts like that trying to screw things up for them.

Calendar Girls

Calendar Girls

Saw "Calendar Girls" today, which was not a bad movie. Based on a true story too.

But it was at the Beverly Hills twin, a cinema I haven't been to in years. And probably for good reason. The screen was absolutely tiny, and to make matters worse, the whole picture was out of focus.

Bring back the Mecca *please*!!

Matrix Revolutions

Matrix Revolutions

Didn't get home in time to blog last night. Pretty tragic really, especially on a school night :)

Went and saw Matrix Revolutions with George last night. It was ok. I wasn't expecting too much from it, so I wasn't disappointed, but I found this, as well as Reloaded, just too cryptic. I "got" the first one with no problems, and thoroughly enjoyed it, but the second and third were just a little too out there.

I tried to sleep in this morning, but alas woke up early, hungry and needing to go the toilet. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

First paid gig

| | Comments (2)

Had my first paid masseur gig tonight. Two hours, 20 people, $100. Not sure if it was worth it or not. I didn't know anyone except Sami, and the whole room was so noisy it was next to impossible to listen to conversations anyway. Not to mention I'm thoroughly exhausted, I've never gone for that long before. Still, $100 and dinner isn't anything to complain about :)

A Wrinkle in Time

| | Comments (0)

I was doing some cleaning up this afternoon and looking at some of my old books, wondering if it'd be worth selling any of them on ebay. One of the books I saw was "A Wrinkle in Time" by Madeleine L'Engle. I actually stopped and thought about the book for a moment. I got it when my brother's school was getting rid of some old text books, and I remember quite enjoying the book when I read it.

So then I get back to my puta and lookup the tv guide for the night - and there it was - A Wrinkle in Time on tv tonight. Spooky!

There's some classic references in the movie though - like a reference to the Matrix ("is this a *training* sequence?" and "there is no spoon") and to Harry Potter (a direct quote of Dumbledore). Funny stuff.

Being the first of the month there has been much fizzing involved and hence less ability to type. Much needing of backspace key at present time.

Very excited about birth of boss' new baby.

Also had fun last night at Sydney Cave Clan Newbie's Night. Other than that spent today at Church, sleeping and reading Harry Potter.

Must keep head horizontal or brain will freak out.

It's a girl!
