Leave a comment saying, "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

calathiel7  gave me Precious, Boyfriends (and terrible taste therein), Bogan, Shoes, and Obsessive

 

Precious: Precious is Precious. Silly Precious is Silly. Also, right now the voice in my head is saying "My Precious" in a Gollum voice.

Boyfriends (and terrible taste therein): I was going to try to explain that I don't have bad taste in boyfriends, but I really do.

Bogan: Some people claim that I'm a bogan. I don't believe I am. I do like my car, I do have a list of cars I want to own in my life, I do think most muscle cars are beautiful, I do like classic rock, Cold Chisel is one of my favourite bands. I do not think this makes me a bogan.

Shoes: I am addicted to shoes, I am physically incapable of walking into a shoe store with money, and walking out with out shoes. I have on a number of occasions purchased shoes purely because they were gorgeous, knowing that I had nothing to wear them with, and not worn them until over a year later when I finally found an outfit for them. Stilletoes in particular are a weakness for me.

Obsessive: I kinda want to claim that I'm not at all obsessive, but I know that I am. Obsessions are good.

5 Things Meme

Leave a comment saying, "COMMENT" and I will give you five words I associate with you. Then post about what they mean to you, along with this, at your journal.

Smile, Unisfa, Depression, Rottnest, Car

Smile: A smile is a facial expression formed by flexing those muscles most notably near both ends of the mouth. The smile can also be found around the eyes. Among humans, it is customarily an expression denoting pleasure, happiness or amusement but can also be an involuntary expression of anxiety in which case it is known as a grimace. Cross-cultural studies have shown that smiling is used as a means of communicating emotions throughout the world.Happiness is most often the motivating cause of a smile. The study of smiles is a part of gelotology, psychology, and linguistics, comprising various theories of affect, humor, and laughter.

Unisfa: Unisfa is an awesome place that where I can hang out with friends and I always feel at home.

Depression: I've struggled with depression a couple of times in the past, but I'm feeling a hell of a lot better these days which is awesome.

Rottnest: Rottnest used to be home, but it's been 10 years since I lived there, and everything's changed. Rottnest is now where I work, and some days I think that's the most awesome thing on the planet, but some days I think it sucks.

Car: My current car is a 1989 Honda Prelude. It is awesome. Her name is Xyleena, and she has pop-up lights and a sunroof. =)

DVD's and Doctors.

My brain won't let me work out how to start a post, possibly it's been so long since I last posted anything that I have completely forgotten how to.

As a result of many people giving me money and/or gift cards for my birthday and for christmas I have a whole lot of new DVDs to watch, which is awesome, except that I now don't want to do anything else during days off but watch DVDs.

The DVDs that I have but haven't watched yet are as follows:
Doctor Who [season 2 (partially finished), season 3]
Torchwood [season 1 (partially finished)
NCIS [season 4 (partially finished), season 5]
Supernatural [season 2 (partially finished, season 3]
Bones [seasons 1,2,3,4]
Skins [seasons 1,2,3]
Autopsy Life and Death
Anatomy for Beginners
2001: A Space Oddyssey
A Clockwork Orange
The Shining
Full Metal Jacket
Eyes Wide Shut
Stanley Kubrick, A Life in Pictures
Across The Universe (Not actually the result of money or gift vouchers, but still as a result of christmas)

In other unrelated news, I'm a little bit worried about my asthma at the moment, in the last two days I have had two really bad attacks, probably the worst attacks I can remember having that didn't result in hospitalisation. I've made an appointment to see a doctor tomorrow and hopefully there's something they can do about it, but, who knows.

Anyways, I can't think of anything else even vaguely worth posting here, so, I shall leave it here.

Hope you had a great christmas and I hope you have an awesome new year.

Rollin' & Scratchin'

I haven't posted here in along time and I feel like I probably should, but I really can't think of anything much to say...

Working at Bike Hire again. Leavers was fun mainly because the island was pretty much empty except for the leavers, and they were under 18 and so couldn't hire anything, which meant that it was really quiet. I feel vaguely like I fit in, but it's difficult because everyone else goes from freo, and they often go to a pub after work, but I can't go because I have to go home to hillarys. Looking forward to the christmas party though.

Having money again is fun but I feel like I should be saving more, I have managed to buy a fair bit of jewellery, some yarn, presents for some of my friends, some DVD's and some music with out blowing my budget despite trying to save monies to get to Canada and Ireland. I shall have to work out how much money I will need to have, and adjust my budget to ensure that I'll have enough. Also need to work out exactly when I want to go.

The DVD's I have bought are: Doctor Who (new series) season 1, 2, and 3; Torchwood season 1; Green Wing season 1, Supernatural season 2, and 3; NCIS season 1, and 2. I feel like there was more, but I can't remember what it might have been.

I also bought probably close to $200 of music, most of it impulse buys, and I really can't be bothered going and working out what it was... oh well.

I'm trying to think of what else I have to write about, but I'm failing miserably...

I had an awesome time at my party. It was great to catch up with people I haven't seen in ages, and I still think it's hilarious that there was someone at my 21st party that I'd never met before, and quite possibly never will again...

I can't think of anything more to say so I have decided to do one of those meme things, except without the tagging of people...

RULES:
1. Put your iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc. on shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.
3. YOU MUST WRITE THAT SONG NAME DOWN NO MATTER HOW SILLY IT SOUNDS.
4. Tag 5 people to do it too.

unmarked

I've been meaning to post an update for awhile now, but nothing much has been happening and I didn't want to bore people with the details of my boredom, however having been told today in unisfa that I should update, I decided I would.

Luckily for me, as it gives me something to write about, as I was driving back from panto rehearsals today I was thinking about how I'd seen recently (three in the last week or so.) and how, following the pattern of my life this would probably mean I'd get stopped my an unmarked cop car at some stage soon. Just as I finished that thought I looked in my rear vision mirror and saw the flashing blue and red lights of an unmarked cop car.

It was luckily just a routine traffic stop, and I had not been drinking so all was good, except that one of my headlights wasn't working, so I need to get that fixed before I drive at night again.

All of this just served to remind me how nervous I get around police. I was almost in tears by the end of it, and was still shaking by the time I got home. It's so irritating. I hate that I get nervous around cops for no reason.

Anyways, my mummy just got home so I should go talk to her now... that is all.

I want to believe in love at first light

So the other night I was watching tv, and in a rather uncharacteristic moment for me, I got totally swept up into the romantic notion that this couple (who were disastrously bad for each other despite being madly in love) would be able to sort through all of their problems. Towards the end of the show, the guy sings a song that he had apparently sung to her at some point during their long and complicated past. A nyhow, the point of this story is that this song had me in tears from the fourth line, and I've had it stuck in my head ever since... so, in the absence of anything interesting to say about my life, I have decided to post the lyrics up here...

(no subject)

So I was going to write a post, and decided to restore the saved draft, and this came up.... I forgot that I'd been writing it... oh well, here it is.

So tonight was Itchi's 21st party. It was so much fun catching up with people that I haven't seen in ages (mainly due to my inability to keep in touch with people from high school) but it was really weird at the same time. Seeing one of the guys playing with Itchi's little cousin and looking like he would make a good dad, and hearing people talking about the possibility of kids... it was just odd. Despite that I had a great time dancing up a storm on the dance floor and getting weird looks from all of Itchi's uni friends... actually I was getting on well with them until a song came on that none of them knew and me and kiddo started dancing like freaks... but you get that. The only thing that irritated me a bit was there were a couple of times that some of the girls seemed to get a bit upset that I was dancing and having fun and chatting with their boyfriends while they were sitting there looking bored... It's not my fault that I get on well with some of the guys that I went to highschool with, it's not my fault that you chose to wear painfully high heels and therefore didn't want to dance, and it's certainly not my fault that you are so insecure that you can't handle the fact that I have been friends with your boyfriend since long before you met him. The most hilarious part was that I actually think of those guys as big brothers. Of course when Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne came on, and it was just the two of us on the dancefloor, I thought it might be a good time to take a break for a bit.... The rest of the night was pretty awesome, and I have realised thatI really do need to keep in contact with some the people I knew in high school... they're awesome people.
