meander, keep moving, that's what it's all about isn't it?! not the hokey pokey, that just CAN'T be what it's all about...

i must admit...

when you have someone to talk to when you get home everyday... or watch videos or paint with or have water fights with, or cook with... you really don't get a whole lot of blogging done.

I intend to rectify this, I really do.

There is much to tell, but I also feel rather stupid lately. Like things I really feel I should have a good knowledge on I don't...

Maybe I should just get over it and realise I can't know everything...

too much love will kill you...

"i swear i keow you... i keow you a miwyun times"

quite tired from long days in front of the computer number crunching, concentrating on beading and being a good little stepford wife...

yesterday i passed my two year anniversary of not smoking.

and i'm just going to say here that i think i ROCK!! At least for that, if nothing else.

BOLLYWOOD DANCE CLASSES sure are fun. We giggled all the way through.

Somewhat anxious about coming home, and various other things... I think by next week I'll feel a load better.

There is nobody home to play with *hmph* and this new monitor sure is making my head go all wibbly, so I bid you goodnight and adieu.

feelin' hot hot hot

olay ohhhhlay olay ohhhhlay...

damn, it's somewhat on the warm side up here today, thank god for spray bottles in the fridge.

we may well go see a movie to sit in airconditioned comfort for a few hours. i think it shall be well worth it. I'm thinking Phantom of the Opera.

I really have been particularly slack hanging around the house just cooking and watching DVDs and doing beads and stuff. I mean it's nice because, unlike last year, I'm not working multiple jobs and I have time to do that kind of stuff. So I guess that's something.

I had every intention to go see some music yesterday, but nothing in the gig guide took my fancy... or at least, I thought given my access to music over the past ten years I would have recognised some of the band names.... but nothing. Bah humbug. I have no music news to report. What a slack tart.

I can't wait to start BOLLYWOOD DANCE CLASSES!! YAY! It also happens to be my two year anniversary of not smoking on Tuesday night. Hooray! If you dont count a cigar or two and a few sheisha pipes that is. (which i dont cos you dont suck it in)
If I was smart I would have been putting aside $8 for every day I didn't smoke (to compensate my bank account for the time when I smoked a pack a day) but no, and now I'm not really sure how likely it is I will be getting to Japan or America this year. Mainly because of the zillion billion weddings that seem to have appeared, none of which are in Brisbane.

Ok, I'd best go do something more constructive than this.

spelling bee...

gawd! these late nights are killing me!

Our household is on a permanent late-night binge, which makes going to work particularly sucky.

We have a visitor staying with us for about the next week en route to Malaysia and back home to Canada... and there is too much testosterone flying around! I might have to grow a penis.

We saw THE INCREDIBLES last weekend and damn, was it funny!! Am yet to see Phantom or Finding Neverland which are both on the agenda for shortly... I love the $6.80 movies at Southbank... that's why Brisbane rocks... amongst other things.

We start BOLLYWOOD DANCE CLASSES next Tuesday which I think will be an absolute laff-riot!! Hooray!!

Am returning home in a week or so for my cousins wedding... it will be interesting going home and seeing everyone. I think the weather will get to me! I hope I don't get sick. I'm pretty used to wearing singlets and flip-flops everywhere... I don't like cold anymore.

gots to dash, but you, yes you, i love you... no really, i can't deny it...
*wraps a big sloppy one round your gils*

"why do i keep my mind...

on you all the time...
and i don't even know you?...."

Go Bill Withers... hang on that's not fucking bill withers, what's wrong with me...?

have been particularly slack not seeing any music lately... missed SummerFieldDayze mainly because I can't afford it. Have wedding invitations coming out of my butt, and they're all weddings that I really want to go to... and they're all back home, so I am a poor mf for all the flights i'll be buying. Also my car cost me $500 in the last fortnight. bah humbug to that!

unicycling is an alternative way to castration.... according to my housemate. Helps to lose all forms of sensitivity in the nether-region...?

don't shoot the messenger.

New Years Resolutions: stress less

2004 really was a rollercoaster ride until I got to Brisbane.

The emotion with leaving the place you grew up in is of course heightened when you're doing it for the first time, but people here have been so welcoming and I can't thank them enough.

Tanya visited me yesterday with Chris (both Adelaidians) and I just rave about Brisbane. I honestly don't think I'll be heading down South again for anything more than a holiday anytime soon. I can say this with confidence. I feel better (insert a sigh here).

We spent New Years out at Maryborough, approx a 3 hour drive up the Sunshine Coast, at Andrews place. We all dressed up as bogans and had a good laff at ourselves - played pictionary charades, jenga, wrote up new years resolutions for each other, ate heaps and made Sangria.

New Years Day we went over to Hervey Bay for some fishing. I was so excited, I haven't been fishing in way too long.

I am going brown (my skin that is), and I know when I go back to Adelaide in 3 weeks, everyone will say 'look how brown you are!', when in the reality of Brisneyland, if I'm sitting next to my housemate, Nath, I'm not brown!! hehe.

Enjoy 2005 everybody!
