* buy some fishies - a few angels and a betta
* get a card/wrapping for present for my cousin's engagement present
* nuke my windoze installation and reinstall - I'm thoroughly sick of IE crashing all the time and taking all the other windows with it
* cousin's engagement party Saturday night

You're a wizard Harry!

Just watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Very cool movie :)

Totally lacking inspiration what to blog about.
oh I know, I was going to post the lyrics to "Look what they've done to my song" sometime .. lemme just go find them

ARTIST: Melanie Safka
TITLE: Look What They've Done to My Song

Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well it's the only thing I could do half right
And it's turning out all wrong
Look what they've done to my song

Look what they've done to my song, Ma
Look what they've done to my song
Well they've tied it up in a plastic bag
Then turned it upside down
Look what they've done to my song

Look what they've done to my brain, Ma
Look what they've done to my brain
Well they've cooked it like a chicken bone
I think I'm half insane, Ma
Look what they've done to my brain

We learnt this in like year 6 in primary school. Our teacher used to take great delight in going "what brain ma?" after the "look what they've done to my brain ma" line

Learnt lots of cool songs from those "ABC" books. Every so often I'll hear one of them that I haven't heard since I was a kid and it's always amusing.

Anyways, definitely way past my bed time

1. What is your most prized material possession?
Probably my computer and digital camera (can't have one without the other really :) )

2. What item, that you currently own, have you had the longest?
Yikes I've had *stacks* of stuff since I was a kid. Although one of my earliest memories is getting my bed, which I still sleep in

3. Are you a packrat?

4. Do you prefer a spic-and-span clean house? Or is some clutter necessary to avoid the appearance of a museum?
I like a clean house, and I like to be free of clutter. But I'm also a hoarder, so I have to think up creative storage solutions :)

5. Do the rooms in your house have a theme? Or is it a mixture of knick-knacks here and there?
No themes. I was thinking the other day it'd be cool to have a space lego room, but this unit is just far to small for that sort of thing. Mind you, my lounge room is basically just a widened hallway. All I have in it is a little couch and a small table. So technically I would have the room

It's kind of ironic that this friday five is about material possessions - I've been reading Ecclesiastes. Strange little book of the Bible that's for sure, I still don't understand it. "Meaningless, a chasing after the wind!"

I'm going to go on an aquarium crawl tomorrow, to look for a shipwreck to decorate my tank, and maybe some fish.. *maybe*. While I'm out I might also have a look around for a DVD player. It's getting about time that I get one (my Dad is looking at getting one also, and it'd be a bit tragic if he got one before me :) )

Looking forward to a full two day weekend this weekend. One day weekends (as per last weekend) totally suck. I reckon we should have three day weekends every week.. just a thought :)

Things I like

I've been wanting to do this since I got this blog, just never got around to it. I wanted to have a list of things that I like and things that I don't. I expect these to be lists that will keep on growing as I think of more stuff to add.

  • Bright shiny coloured things. This is a big category encompassing things like fireworks, glitter, fairy lights, christmas decorations, candles, sparklers, bubbles etc. This is probably my biggest "like"
  • Roast Pork with crackling, apple sauce and gravy
  • Chocolate coated strawberries (the way George makes them)
  • Collecting crap
  • My fishies

  • Another slow news day. I could talk about how cute my fish are, but I think I've done enough of that recently ;)

    So I've fallen back to a stand-by - the "useless questions" lists I found on HarryVolts. Here's the first 10 from that posting:

    1. Are you an innie or an outie? Innie
    2. Have you ever worn bell-bottoms? No
    3. Have you ever written a song? Nope
    4. Can you make change for a dollar right now? er, lemme check.. yep appears so
    5. Have you ever been in the opposite sex's public toilet? In primary school a couple of times after school just to see what was in there
    6. Have you ever smelled your own feet? Occasionally
    7. Do you like ketchup on or beside your french fries? Probably on, but gravy is better!
    8. Can you touch your tongue to your nose? Yep
    9. Have you ever been a boy/girl scout? I was a Brownie then a Girl Guide
    10. Have you ever broken a mirror? Nope
