Stuff and things|
I'm supposed to be drawing pictures right now but guess what i'm doing?
Picking my nose. heh. not really, but it sounded funny at the time.
I got a zine called "you stink and i don't" on wednesday, very random and generally hilarious. Here is a sample from the singles pages:
"i am a very spiritual 19yo fns who rejects conventional religions. Instead i am on a spiritual journey which involves aspects of all the faiths. I currently call myself a Hindubuddzlam Krish-tian, but quite frankly, i'm as dumb as a bag of hammers." hehehe
"Sick of masturbating? Me too! Let's start a relationship which may lead to using our genitals on each other for a change!"
And one more:
"Systematic, Hydromatic four on the floor slag longs for a smoking hot rod for video-watching, ice cream eating times. No strings please, but wire is ok."
I am currently drawing a picture of some abyssal tube worms from the deep deep ocean. N shit. They look kind of like flowers but they're not cos they're worms, sucker.

quick quick quick|
been a while!
So now i'm in my final year of the illustration course and i'm getting real serious about this 'being my own boss' thing, which is noice.
Yesterday was my auntie's surprise 50th birthday party which was held at my cousin Ingi's house. Ingrid and i haven't been close over the last 5 years or so, but recently we've started chatting again. I'm actually really happy about it because we were inseperable as children.
Had breakfast at the 'Red Balloon' cafe in Parkmore (Parkmore!! heh) with Mel and Judy on Saturday, did a bit of shopping, bit of gossiping, some laughing, etc etc. Lots of fun!
Also gave Mel a lovely off-road driving lesson in her back paddock (well done, by the way Mel).
Tomorrow i have to go back to school after being on holidays for the last 3 weeks and i haven't even started the holiday assignments yet. Meh. Not gonna happen tonight that's for sure.
I've been house-hunting lately as well - haven't found anything yet but fingers crossed i'll get something nice.
Going to bed now. nitey nite

Long time no see, green peanut|
A quick update this late Sunday night! I've been on holidays from school and have been working and also sitting around in my spare time, which i love to do.
Today i had to go to hospital because of my horrible cramping abdominal pains which have lasted around 2 days. It sucked. I got jabbed and poked and told to wizz in a cup, and then they still couldn't tell me what was wrong with me.
The most definitive answer i got was "If the pain gets worse, then come back to hospital"
Thanks folks. Truly inspired.
So now i'm a little whacked on the painkillers they gave me, and i have to wait about 2 days for the results of the blood tests. I'm not really optimistic that they'll be able to give me any answers, to be honest.
I had to go to work this morning and sit there for the 1st two hours until the other girl got there, and then i got in trouble for leaving it too late to call anyone else to replace me. What else was i supposed to do? I had to open the shop! Also i didn't have anyone's numbers to call and ask them to replace me, so fuck it! Now i have my hospital certificate, so the bosses can go fuck themselves!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHa
I am currently putting the 'Life Aquatic' soundtrack on my ipod, what great music! It has Bowie!
Also just put the new Gorillaz one on there too....excellent.
Roight, that's about all for the mo, can't be arsed typing any more.

Sleep is my friend|
I have neglected my friend sleep for a while recently. Must get back onto a first-name basis with that fella.
Another big weekend.
Am at school again, will fill in the details later...
Current Mood: sleeeeeepy
Verry big weekend!
Happy birthday for yesterday to cerulean_girl
Your present is on the way (in the meantime i have a small pressie for you, which i keep forgetting to give you). So last night we went out to Caulfield Chinese for Mel's birthday dinner (you are SO old!!) and that salt n pepper pork was THE SHIZIT!!
Definitely be going back there.
I'm at school now so i can't update fully, will update properly later.
Must go and write and email.
Ta ta for now

Boo hoo i am jobless......|
My fabulous new pet shop job fell through....wah. Turns out they needed full-time staff and apparently they found some people who could work full-time AND had experience. Bugger!! i thought i TOTALLY had it, owing to my assistant manager status at the last pet shop i worked at.
So now i'm looking for a new job. Boo hoo.
But, i'm on holidays from school, so at least i have time to wander around and hand my resume in at every place i see. I'm going to have to go back to retail, which is something that i said i'd never do, but what office is open on the weekend? And there's NO WAY IN HELL i'm EVER going to work in a call centre.
So the options are: retail or hospitality. Guess what i chose.
Current Mood: Meh
Now i remember what the hell i was doing on Monday......
Brad n Chris showed up at my house saying "let's do something", so we went to Mat's house to see if he was home. He wasn't.
Then we went to Sorcha's. She wasn't there either. (She had told us all the previous night that she was going to wag the day of uni and come for a picnic with us, but she wussed out)
Then we went to Mel's place , and she was home with Judy, but they were just leaving to go undies shopping.
We all said DRAT!! Not really, but it sounded good....
So the 3 of us went over to Dingley Village and got some lunch from the chicken shop, which we decided to eat in Braeside Park. It was such a nice day! So many famailies there too!
(i had to hide my pipe a little) but other than that it was an extremely relaxing afternoon.
All was to be ruined that night by my absolute DICK of a boyfriend who showed up at my house with "a present, but not really a present". He gave me a bottle of STRETCHMARK LOTION.
Pick up jaw from ground, i couldn't believe it either. I was so angry and worried that i would physically hurt him, i had to leave the room and stand in the bathroom breathing really heavily for about 15 mins.
The stupid thing was he couldn't even work out why i was mad.
BOYS. ARE. ALL. MORONS.
I'm still a little pissed off about it now. How fucking insulting. As if i'm EVER taking my clothes off in front of him again! What a shithead! I'm so angry! GAAAAAAH
So. Rant over.
Haven't seen him since Monday night, don't really want to either. Last night i went to the movies with Mat, Sorcha and Brad and saw 'Ong Bak', a Thai martial arts movie, starring the most attractive thai man i've ever seen. I must recommend this movie on perve factor alone! Oh those arms! Oh that body!
Sorcha and i had a lovely time drooling over him, and the boys can go get stuffed.

Well, i've resigned from my current job, and boy does it feel good!!!
Two weeks to go till i finish, which really means 2 and a half more days of work (next Wednesday is my last day!!). Then that weekend is the Easter long weekend.......excellent.
Not sure what's happening then if anything but i'm sure we'll get up to something interesting.
Camp was good and bad - i made some cool new friends, which was good, but being dirty and stinky for 5 days in the hot weather was pretty unbearable (no showers there). So when i got home i had a lovely long shower and washed my hair, man it felt good.
This past weekend was the labour day long weekend, so i got Monday off school.....excellent. Spent the weekend mostly lazing around - on Saturday i went to Sorcha's and we ate bagels with fresh ham, roasted capsicum, marinated artichoke and basil pesto mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmgood. We sat in the front yard reading the paper and smoking cigarettes all day.
On Sunday i went to the beach with Mel where we swam but mostly sat on our arses on the sand, which was extremely pleasant. We also had pine-lime splits, the best icecream ever invented for a hot summer day, in my opinion. That night i met up with Sorcha and the boys and we decided to be bums and go to Fast Eddies Pool Hall for some amusement and pool-playing, of course. Wow. All i'm saying. About that.
Monday has slipped my mind at this stage..........i'll remember what i did sooner or later.
Will update in a few hours.
Boiye for nowe!

I'm back at school!!!|
Yee har! i'm finally back at school and it feels GOOD. Two days a week of working at the "lobotomy factory" and the rest are spent hanging out with kids that are barely 18 and talk about drinking and such fun things that i seem to remember from years ago. I feel old. I'm not the oldest in my class this year, which is nice, but i am the 3rd oldest.
The kid are still a little shy (it's only the 2nd week of school) but i'm sure that will change very soon.
I'm at school right now. How many more times can i say "school" school school school school. yay yay yay
So onto another subject, i watched 'House of Flying Daggers' on saturday night - excellent film. i enjoyed it so much more than 'Hero', although the scenery in both films were up to their usual standards. What can i say, i'm just a sucker for a good love story.
I bought more cactus on the weekend - one of them has these 2 flowers coming out of the top of it that look like antennae, and the other one has a big red ball on the top of it. So exciting. I'm going to re-pot them tonight maybe.
Saw Chris on the weekend. That was hard. Nuff sed.
I'm looking for a new job at the moment as well, i want to go to school full-time this year and just get this course finished once and for all. Also my current workplace is driving me insane with the boredom and tedium. I hate looking for work, it has to be one of the most traumatic things i've ever done (yet i keep doing it, funny that isn't it?).
Off to do some school work i guess. school school school school school school school
