Top 10 things i would rather be doing right now

10. Plucking my eyebrows. It isn't my favourite activity...but it would be more fun than what I'm currently supposed to be doing now.

9. Shooting up with needles between my toes. No it isn't because i harbour a secret love of needles or because of my not-so-secret foot fetish, but simply because the idea of torture is still better than what I'm supposed to be doing now.

8.Curling my hair on my legs with a large curling iron....and no my leg hair really isn't that long.

7. Singing songs from old musicals like "Oklahoma!" at the top of my lung in my office....actually i might do that. It will spice up my day.

6. Giving my dog a bath. Actually this one isn't that bad. I kind of enjoy this one. Plus my puppy smells so nice after a good bath...i should go home and bath her.

5. Weeding. this is a horrible chore. One of those horrible chores that should be inflicted on only really bad people....actually, chances are that it would end up my responsibility if we did it that REALLY good people should be allowed to weed. There i will never be allowed to weed.

4. Cleaning that gunk out of the earring holes. Yep. it really is that gross. And i would so rather be doing that.

3. Creating a website dedicated to absurd fetishes. Like people with plant fetishes. (not vegetable, PLANT)

2. Taking pictures of "cute" couples. You know the ones that are so sickeningly sweet it makes you want to vomit? I would rather be taking their pictures and tempting myself to regurgitate lunch.

1. And the thing i would MOST like to be doing instead of data entry: become a lady stud and Go HOME!

random incomplete survey

44* ODD Things about you! FILL IT OUT! Learn 44 things about your friends, and let them learn 44 things about you!

*Survey may not contain 44 actual odd things about me

1) Do you like blue cheese?
not so much

2) Have you ever smoked?
only second-hand smoke...and i wasn't impressed

3) Do you own a gun?
no. i firmly believe guns do not belong in homes.

5) Do you get nervous before doctor appointments?
some times. especially if they are appointments where i am unsure of what is going to happen or what the outcome will be.

7) Favorite Christmas movie?
Scrooged is my favourite although a close second is Muppet Christmas Carol

8) Favorite thing to drink in the morning?
i'm a fan of water.

9) Can you do push ups?
Yes, although i do far too few to be considered a world best at it.

10) Favorite piece of jewelry?
i like my wedding ring, although that may sound trite or too instead i'll name my penguin earrings. they are super cute.

11) Favorite hobby?
i have lots of hobbies. the problem is i can't just decide on one and stick with it. I get really excited about one, do it all the time and then switch. At the moment i'm a big dog trainer. Although a couple of months ago it was beading...before that it was knitting...and before that who knows what tomorrow will bring.

12) Do you have ADD?
my mum said i did as a child. I suspect she is correct. I don't really feel like i have it as an adult...although i don't know enough about it to make an accurate statement on that. I also have never been tested for it.

13) What is one trait you hate about yourself?
I hate that i don't follow through on projects as well as i would like. I start out with a lot of steam. FULL GO AHEAD! and then run out of energy for it by the time i get to phase 2.

15) Name 3 thoughts at this exact moment:
type type type
I should look at my to-do list.
Where is my to-do list?

16) Name 3 drinks you regularly drink
To be honest, i don't have three 'regular' drinks. i consume water and orange juice consistently, but i don't have a third. I could make something up i suppose...My third drink of choice is diet dr. whipper snapper.

17) Current worry?
I worry that the SONscreen project isn't going to fly. I worry that i won't be getting paid for previous work. i worry that my dog isn't eating everything she name a few

18) Current hate right now?
Not sure i have a current hate. Many things i don't like...but nothing worth hating just now.

19) Favorite place to be?
curled up in bed. I could give you more details on that but it would give you nightmares and i don't want to do that to you.

21) Where would you like to go?
I would love to go see my mum. I don't get to see her enough.

27) Favorite color?
i love cartoon colours. Bold colours that have subtle secondary colours mixed it. I know, that doesn't make a lot of sense...i'm sorry.

28) Would you be a pirate?
If by pirate you mean someone sailing the seas and hi-jacking ships, no. If you mean someone who uses bit-torrents, yes. I don't like the idea of paying money for something that i may not like. I go by a 'try before you buy' policy. If it is good, i'll purchase it. If it is crap, i don't. That way THE MAN gets a clear view of the kind of films/music i want made. I'm using my purchase power to get the stuff i actually want.

29) What songs do you sing in the AM?
i'm not big on singing in the morning. low groans are about all i can muster for happy sounds in the AM.

33) Last thing that made you laugh?
My epic fail. I managed to book a trip to a meeting in another state, only to find out when i got there that i had the wrong date for the meeting. EPIC FAIL.

35) Worst injury you have ever had?
I think all my worst injuries have been emotional. I have been blessed with an incredible body that stays strong and doesn't break easily. So in comparison, my emotional health is weak as.

36) Do you love where you live?
I love the ocean here. I have some awesome friends here, but it is so far away from so many loved ones that it can be hard. I miss them so much some times.

37) How many TVs do you have in your house?
One, but we use our computers to watch tv i'm not sure a tv is particularly special any more.

39) Do you have any pets?
I do. i have a beautiful black and white cat named Bob. He is so intuative. He senses who needs him and spend his time on their lap.

I also have a puppy. She is quite a delight. She is always happy and ready to please.

41) What is your favorite book(s):
i very much like "Til We Have Faces' by CS Lewis. I also quite enjoy Terry Pratchetts books.

42) Do you collect anything?
i do. i collect koals. i've collected them since i was a small child actually.

I also collect masks. they hang from my wall and bring a ghostly presence to my house.

danger zone

Tomorrow morning i will be getting up at an ungodly hour. I will brush the sleep out of my eyes and plop myself into the drivers seat of my car, drive to the airport and get on a plane. My flight will take me to Melbourne. From there, i rent a car and drive straight into the heat of the fires.

Why would i do this? because my contract job asks me to. I am presenting to a conference. I'm hoping to make such an impression that they walk away on fire (not literally) for the events i'm promoting.

Pray that i stay safe. Fire is no way to go.

fire, loss and pain

As the fires blaze in Victoria, people all over the world say prayers for those dealing with the crisis. No one wants to know someone who has been affected, but somehow we all do. The faces of the victims seemed to be burned into our brain. We all mourn their loss.

It is heart wrenching to hear tales of small children dying in these fires. Children should be invincible, they shouldn't get the short straw in life. Teachers and parents are struggling with how and what to tell the surviving children. Could you look into a child's eyes and tell them they will never see their best friend again?

All of Australia feels the pain of these losses and the pain will not cease when the fires go out.

Pledge for the day

On this day in my history, i will not allow this day to disappear into nothing. I will do something with this day to make it worth while. I will be witty and possibly funny. I will laugh at least once. I will take comfort in at least one solitary moment. I will look to the future with hope and a healthy dose of realism. I will not allow myself to be overly pessimistic about the day. Today is a great day. It is this day, part of the exciting adventures that is my life.

Now to go and do more mundane paper work.

dog training

A new dog requires lots of training. Some times you aren't sure when to start training what. And although i know new dogs need to be trained and exposed to lots of different things...i thought this was a bit silly

fail owned pwned pictures

thoughts on 27 years

After 27 years of life i realise that there are two fundamental truths about me.

1. I'm a bitch
2. I'm okay with that.

After years of getting annoyed when people push me into things i don't want to do, getting angry and sulky and finally doing whatever it is they want, i've realised i'm much happier when i'm bitchy.

person: You need to do this for me.
Me: no i don't. your a big person. you can do it all by yourself.

oh yeah. that feels good.

Being a bitch from the beginning seems to save me a lot of stress from self bitchiness. I think i'm starting to pick up traits from my hero Diana Trent.
