Is it bad that I didn't get out of my pyjamas until 5.30pm and then it was only so I could take a bath before putting them back on?

I really don't care if it is, I'm just trying to work out what the general consensus on it is.

The Grey-Greggs. What an awesome family. Wonder if they'll adopt me?!




Thursday, 29 January 2015

Definitely need to take my laptop with me to work tomorrow night... going to be bored out my skull otherwise.

Maybe I can get a head start on my reading for uni?

Driving five hours* for a one-hour meeting is more fun when you've got hire car with cruise control and a built-in, hilariously-accented sat nav.




* Benalla. 2 1/2 hours each way. Without traffic.

I made some flip comment about my ownership of a Steps album today and my new colleague piped up with "I like Steps!". I thought she was taking the piss. Then I checked out her Twitter feed and discovered references to Steps AND 5ive in her history.

No wonder we've bonded so well - not only do we have a shared love of all things Marvel but we also have terrible taste in music.

Showing my age by not recognising over 90% of the artists in the Hottest 100.

Also, our cockwomble of a Prime Minister awarded a Knighthood to Prince Philip.

The end is nigh, my friends. World's gone cray cray.

My youngest niece (aged 13) informed me this morning that she's (so far) read 16 books these school holidays. I am so impressed with her. What a champ.

A most excellent birthday dinner for one of my favourite people. Happy Birthday Ranikins!

What a lovely way to spend a Friday afternoon... it's just a pity the first (and probably only) time I watch Federer play live, he goes and bloody loses.*









* I was barracking for Seppi anyway... I always go for the underdog.

Why is it that hairdressers get all nervy when you say "chop it off to chin length please"?  I'm not a fool - I know it'll be short, I want it short, I wouldn't ask otherwise.

Jeez.

Seven things on the to-do list for today.

Have only achieved two.

I'm calling it a wash and going to watch Parks and Rec.

Tuesday, 20 January 2015

Today's department meeting with the new boss ended with an all-hands-in "go team!". Can definitely say that's never happened to me in a business context before, but if that's her management style, I approve!

So there's this.

And part of me thinks: "Are you freakin' kidding me?!?! No. Way. Who are all these idiot Republicans and what in the name of anything makes them think anyone would elect them to become POTUS?"**

Then part of me thinks of the joy that this guy is going to take in mocking them on a more frequent basis over the next year and a bit and does a little jig of joy at the potential idiot brigade shenanigans.

Because you know, this:







** Also, they probably took note of the fact that a whole bunch of idiot Australians elected this cockwomble, so you know, there's no telling what might happen. Folks do the darnedest things sometimes.

Starting to plan the European vacation for August/September... so many places, so little time. Except for Florence. Florence gets a whole two weeks in a villa. With a pool. And vineyards.

Saturday, 17 January 2015

Sloth-y Saturday. The only remotely productive thing I did was wash the dishes and hoover the house. Other than that it was sleeping and catching up on crap TV. Eh, whatever. Not gonna beat myself up for it.

Friday, 16 January 2015

Fun day in the sun playing postie with the Future Postal Service. I love working with these guys and interacting with all the kids - they're brilliant!

Thursday, 15 January 2015

Two glasses of sauv blanc and a bowl of fries is hardly a healthy dinner, but it'll have to do tonight.

Wednesday, 14 January 2015

Officially enrolled for uni today. I haven't studied in 12 years... it's just like riding a bike though, right? Right???

Tuesday, 13 January 2015

First two eps watched. I do like Gillian Anderson in investigative mode. Gripping.

Monday, 12 January 2015

This is the THIRD time I've renewed this bloody DVD from the library and I'm determined to watch it.

Just not tonight. Tonight I need to do some work. And then maybe sleep.

Sunday, 11 January 2015

I've spoken to Brutha more times in the last two months than I have in the last two years. This is good. Even though his life's taken some interesting turns of late.

Saturday, 10 January 2015

Sometimes all that's needed is a day catching up on bad TV. And sleeping. Sleeping is good.

Friday, 9 January 2015

If I go to bed now, I just KNOW I'll wake up at 3am. But I just can't keep my eyes open... when did I turn into such a nana?!?

Thursday, 8 January 2015

I love Marvel's commitment to portrayal intelligent, strong, kick-ass, can-save-themselves-thank-you-very-much, women. Agent Carter is the bomb. 

Wednesday, 7 January 2015

Really not sure how I feel about the final Hobbit film. I mean, Thorin was a bit of a dick, they killed off most of the spunky characters and I'm sorry, Peter Jackson, but YOU CAN'T GIFT US BILLY CONNOLLY AS A THE AWESOME, BANTERING, WILLIAM WALLACE-STYLE DWARF FOR ONLY FIVE MINUTES, THEN NOT RESOLVE HIS STORYLINE!

Tauriel and Galadriel were awesome though. Can we have a movie that's just about the kick-ass women of Middle Earth please?

Tuesday, 6 January 2015

OK, this to-do list is just getting SILLY.

I need to strike a few things off it. Pronto.

Monday, 5 January 2015

Careers I am NOT suited for:

1. Teaching seniors how to use technology.

That's about it. I think I have the patience for pretty much anything else other than medical stuff. I'm no better at blood and guts than I am with explaining tech stuff to old people.

Now that I have an uber-comfy, pillow top mattress, I don't mind being banished to my room to work, whilst the Mater entertains her relatives.

Saturday, 3 January 2015

Where art thou, cool change? 41C and windy as all giddy up is just plain disgusting... even when you live in a ground-floor (and therefore relatively cool) flat.

Friday, 2 January 2015

Another day, another endless round of relative visits.

I am gaining so much weight with all the food these oldies are plying on me!!

Thursday, 1 January 2015

Starting the year off with an early night... is that lame? I don't care.
