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...

it occured to me last night...

not only am i not writing anything particularly interesting in this blog these days.... but that it was nearly 'time up' for my tax return!

i always leave these things to the last minute... well, i'd started it several weeks back, but the questions about private health insurance always stump me for some reason. so at 9:05 this morning i rang daddio and asked if it was too early for a tax related question!

so dont forget, if you havent done yours... you have til monday!

the most recent exciting love of my life is my new Sex & The City Box Set!! I wish it were a man, but it really isn't. At least I can indulge and giggle my evenings away when I feel like I can't be arsed doing anything else.

I've watched all of series one and part of series two now as well. I think so far there's only one episode that I wasn't sure I'd seen yet. The one thing I really laughed out loud about though was an episode where Carrie is in bed with Mr Big in the morning, and she farts... freaks out, gets dressed and leaves... then obsesses over the fact that perhaps their less frequent sexual escapades are all about the fart! i thought it was hilarious!

ahh, i'm feeble minded!

Anyways... so i thought i might go see a movie today but i think i've missed Charlie which i wanted to go and see cos it seems i'm the only person who has never seen it!! Other than that Sallie and I are going into Ric's later (unless her illness has worsened, everyone seems sick around here atm) to see Charles Foster Kane... who are apparently well regarded up here in Brisneyland, and I'm yet to see them, so why not. It's free and it's music. What more could you want?!

All I can think about at the moment is how to make loads of cash so I can really travel, do some volunteering, and run a total muck. Do some more good in the world or something?!! Get more motivated!

I'm feeling better physically since stacking it down my staircase *rubs butt just thinking about it* after seeing the Osteopath several times and getting given more strengthening exercises to do. I only managed to walk home once this week but next week I'll walk home more. Sometimes it was because of the weather, other times it was because i had a muhassive box of avon in my possession.... but anyways, if I get a boogie in tonight it will make up for some of the non-walking from storms and arms full of shit this week.

bye for now.
ps. Sarah Jessica Parkers fragrance 'LOVELY' really is... well... lovely!!

strayyun idol...

ok so i watched the show last night and witnessed this horrendous version of Eye of the Tiger done by 'the guy that everyone loves' (apparently) Lee and thought it was absolute bullshit. With one glimmer of hope I waited for some nicely put negative criticism from marcia... but instead she said "there are people in the audience going 'why?' and to them i'd like to say... welcome to the 21st century...!!"

to which my hope was squashed!!!

i mean seriously, what i keep thinking is... what the feck is he doing on australian idol if he wants to sing in a punk band... i mean i think they think it's going to kick start their career... why not do it the hard way you apparent musician?

Marcia!! you disappointed me for the first time... having done ten years in community radio and being exposed in a muhassive amount of all types of music... i was just open-mouthed at that performance, and not in a good way. if i had the vote, i would have booted him out.

Little Fish

Saw this flick with Ms Fiona last night... it was quite good.

Australian film makers seem to be quite good at not sugar-coating issues like drug abuse and what it can do to families. Although it makes these types of films quite distressing, it's good to see.

Cate Blanchett, Huge Weaving, Sam Neill were all good as is expected... but actually Noni Hazlehurst appearing as the mother was pretty stunning too. I was quite suprised. Perhaps because I was used to seeing her on play-school as a kid or something!!

Today my folks and I were going to go to movie world, however it's coming down in fuckets bull outside, so that's no good for rollercoasters!!

Instead we're watching THE UNFORGIVEN and old Burt Lancaster, Audrey Hepburn film... except I don't quite understand what's going on because I'm not watching properly am i? ;)

Theres lots of dust, horses, the lugged a piano across the plains to bring it home... erm... something!!

i'm officially...

an avon lady! odd huh? i feel good about it, some of the products i've tried of theirs lately have done positive things such as made me not wear foundation! i was pretty happy with that!

I went to the osteo Tuesday afternoon and she confirmed what my aunt and GP in Adelaide both said... except she thinks i'm not overly hypermobile... but that's ok. So really, what she said in the first place was correct... build up muscle to protect your bones but don't go too overboard. This is very good news.

Polly's housemate the lovely Belinda is coming over shortly to receive her birthday present and have a look at avon...

Aiva & I at the Multicultural Festival - Roma Street Parklands.
Me looking very much like I'd had a day of sneezing! Cos that's exactly what happened!! *ACHOO*

Aiva, Sallie and me in my air stewardess dress at the Clarence Corner Hotel

It was my birthday on Thursday (6 Oct) so we went to the Melbourne for some drinks, then Three Monkeys in West End for a light meal which was lovely. Then last night some nice folk came over to be the guinea pigs for my first trial run of lentil burgers. They were tasteriffic!

I got some jewellery and a calendar to make and some wine for pressies. Thanks guys!

Except my three year plan isn't complete... or anywhere near being complete, so I'm already two days behind on it! bah humbug to me!!

last week in adelaide...

so i guess i need to write about what i actually did instead of being cryptic and saying nothing...

frivolous friday was taking mummy and daddy to the dulwich bakery for some super-tasty goodness... then going to see little bec & coco for the afternoon.

then off the super-fun wedding of heidi and warwick - possibly the two nicest people on the planet.

then off to the city... now... going into the city quickly made me understand why i'm not living there anymore. it was friday night, around midnight, and the city was certainly not buzzing.

it's not that i dont like the people, musos and comedians i know there. i love them, i love them all. i even love their guts... but it's just too quiet for me. that said, i'm not as much into gigging and stuff of late... but plan to pay a bit of money back soon and get right back into it.

(i'm particularly happy to hear WOLF & CUB are coming up here soon!)

saturday morning at the t-bar which is totally my regular place of saturdaymorningbreakfastinadelaide type scenario... with some nice sorts, and lovely tea.

then off to the barossa to see my aunty and get my body-verdict....

more soon.

what? i mean WHAT....

is the world coming to?

Just read the latest bali blasts report. It's a bit beyond a joke. Why do people do things like that? It doesnt achieve much, except make their local community and livelyhood look like a dangerous place to be.


Aiva is here from syd-e-ney and my cousin Angela and her partner arrived yesterday from Adelaide to their new home BRISNEYLAND!

So we're all off to Ric's for brekkie very soon.

The lovliest lovlies Ken & Scottie brought the futon bed over yesterday as well, so hooray, i finally have furniture! well, some furniture!
tee hee.
