Here's a funny cat story

I was walking to work in Newtown and I hear this funny noise - what's that! - look around, it's a cat miaowing in front of someone's front door. Miaow! Miaow! Miaow! It let me pat it but walked around in little circles close to the opening side of the door, obviously wanting me to open it and let it inside on this cold rainy day. 'You're a human! Humans know how to open doors!' I tried to explain that I couldn't open this particular door but it wasn't convinced. I noticed there was a doorbell so I pressed it and told the cat just to wait, it shouldn't be too long, and walked off up the street. Then I imagined the person who lived in this house opening the door and instead of seeing someone there, only the cat runs in and miaows its thanks. Wha!

I'm frustrated cos I don't want to spend hours on the computer getting a sore neck and stopping myself from getting other stuff done, at the same time as I DO want to exchange communications with peoples and stuff. At the same time as I want to be finished and go away, I also want more interesting stuff to appear on the screen for me to read. I guess I'm seeking some kind of return which I am not getting. Ah well. Maybe if I check more often so that going through the backlog doesn't feel like a chore...

Should magic be free or expensive?

Myself and a customer were discussing the greatest unsolveable problem of life, but now I can't remember what it was. Not too important cos we didn't solve it! I don't think it was the one about not wanting to get out of bed but then having to rush to get ready for work, and I don't think it was the one where you can't decide if you want to spend your day off doing nothing and relaxing or doing all the stuff that you want to do, and ending up being tired when it's time to go back to work. So which one was it?

I dreamt last night that I noticed it was lightly snowing outside and I was so excited! I ran out in bare feet and I was catching the big snowflakes between my palms and I'd see them for an instant before they melted. I was so happy I was squealing and jumping around. It was really cool. I was yet again living at the country house from when I was a child, I keep dreaming that I go back to this house and live there with my family when we're all grown up and everything is happy. I seem to have an obsession with this house. I think because it was a part of my childhood where I don't remember wanting to run away. But I do remember wanting to kill my stepfather (I wasn't even 10 years old yet!) I kept thinking that if he was asleep on the lounge and I took the big kitchen knife it should be pretty easy to slit his throat. I couldn't think of an easier way to do it. I'm guessing that isn't normal for children to be thinking these things? He wasn't a nice person. I spent a lot of time trying to invoke opposite magic and trying to make him not be there when I got home from school. Sometimes it worked. I also remember lying in bed wishing a lot that a giant sledgehammer would descend on my head cos it was the only way I could think of my horrendous ear ache to go away. A few years ago a doctor looked in my left ear and asked if I had an ear infection when I was a kid, cos I have bad scarring in there. Then I remembered the whole giant sledgehammer thing and it seemed to have a connection. I'm sure my mother never noticed that I was in pain, so I wouldn't have received a doctor's appt or medication. Hmmm now I'm wondering why I dream such positive associations!

ZOMG Josh rang me and unbenownst to me he has gotten his hands on some Cure tickets for tomorrow night!!! Apparently it is sold out but cos he has got work connections we have bought tickets for the priviliged 'house' section so it feels very special! What am I going to wear?! He was going to try and surprise me by luring me into the city and pretending that we were going to Club Blink or something but decided against it in case I bought some tickets - I'm glad that he told me I don't think I could have handled the surprise!

So now I am asking - who here is going tomorrow night? I would love to meet up with people for pre-drinks!

I'm a Mazda Miata!



You like to soak up the sun, but your tastes are down to earth. Everyone thinks you're cute. Life is a winding road, and you like to take the curves in stride. Let other people compete in the rat race - you're just here to enjoy the ride.

Gah! Burnt the chickpeas! Hommous tastes bad (not from being burnt though)! Weevils in the macaroni! White sauce tastes bad! Giant cake turned out yummy though...

Do you ever get that thing where you see something and think it is nice, then afterwards you keep thinking about that thing and it grows and grows in your mind, until you finally see the thing again and it's not nearly as nice as you remembered it, cos you have created something even better in your mind? Cos I know I have done it with a necklace and a skirt...

So considering the recent events in Melbourne where some people who tried to help a stranger being accosted in the street and they ended up being shot and one guy dying, do you think that it will discourage people from helping strangers in the street?

oh but I was gonna say, I didn't watch Legally Blonde cos instead we watched Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla, which Josh enjoyed, and I realised that I really am not into the whole Godzilla thing. I realised I was outside the boy zone when I questioned how Optimus Prime could die (a robot character from Transformers) when they are merely a machine - I was told that I just didn't understand and they were more than machines or some such reason.

My attempt to get Josh to like curries has failed miserably - I only used a tiny amount of the spice sachet but the meal was too hot to eat even after adding extra water! Second attempt tonight with the addition of heaps of chicken and another can of coconut milk and only some of last night's dinner and a can of water - still too hot! And the packet told me to add the whole thing - I added less than a quarter! Do people not have tastebuds anymore?

I am learning by trial and error how to stain timber, discovered that when the stain touches the newspaper that the shelf is resting on, the newspaper sticks to the shelf. It's a real pain to sandpaper off. Now I am trying the method of having the shelf sitting up on things, which has its own difficulties. And it's real tricky to try and stop it leaking around corners and over edges. And it's much quicker to paint the back of the cupboard than the 5 seperate sections at the front. And also than arms are great - they can reach angles from all kinds of places.

Oh no last episode of the Chaser was tonight! Those boys make me laugh! And I didn't even get invited to go to a taping with someone I knew!

I was thinking about watching Legally Blonde tonight cos I have heard that it is pretty funny, and I watching Mean Girls the other week which I found actually really good, I was sceptical that they could pull off an ironic look at high school popular girls but it was very clever and very funny.
Unlike The Lady in the Water by M. Night Shittyman which was really quite boring and stupid. Poor Josh, I showed him the extras which had the making of the wolf creature, which looked quite cool and scary when you see the props but in the movie you don't really get to see it. But Josh then wanted to see the movie to see the wolf, and I was all like, no you won't like the movie and the wolf is hardly in it!

I found a bunch of stuff on the side of the road a few weeks ago, it was quite strange actually because I was early for work but didn't realise it until I got to Newtown, for some reason I calculated the wrong time to get up and catch the train. So I was weaving my way thru the back streets of Newtown on the way to the hardware store to buy shelf brackets, and I see a guy looking at stuff on the side of the lane. So he leaves and I check it out, there's some cool stuff, I collect it, I have more stuff than I carry so I have to find a plastic bag to put it in. Then I find another bunch of stuff, it's like they kicked out their flatmate and all her stuff, even this really good chest of drawers! And in this pile I find a big sports bag which is good cos I fill it full of great stuff! And then across the laneway I find some more cool stuff. I felt pretty silly walking into the hardware with this huge bag (it had pink on it! Ugh!) but it also fitted my shelf brackets in it too! Very handy! So my haul included a pirate shower curtain, some clothes, some yarn, some beanies, and some books. Quite a few horror books, I'm halfway thru a collection of short horror stories some of which are interesting, and I've finished a book written by a man born with a heart condition about his life and the traumas it involved.

It was a hard book to read, because it kept making me all queasy and nauseous and I had to stop reading cos it was grossing my out! It was also talking about when he was studying to become a doctor, and how they have to stay awake for 2 days and then get a night's sleep and then stay awake for another 2 days etc! What is the f**king point of that? You won't be able to think straight and will be more likely to make mistakes - and these are human lives that you are responsible for! Who created that stupid system! I wouldn't be able to do it because my body would simply get sick from being run down too much! Society really undervalues sleep, it's really important, probly more important than food really, lack of sleep causes cancer - the govt should do an education campaign!

So I don't really recommend that book to anyone.

I was wondering whether laughing aloud is something that should only be done as a form of communication with other people, or it ok to laugh aloud when you are alone? Is it insane to laugh aloud when alone? If it is ok, then what is its function?
Send me to bed...
