You tube yourself to death

You Tube is evil! *laughs*



There is video for everything! And the suggestion tab down the side means you will waste hours of your life clicking on the next title that grabs your attention. So many videos so little time. Oh and my personal favorite... the instructional video's on how to take a battery apart or put an ipod in a blender. Still it is a good thing that it exists. This way the boyfriend can watch other people do stupid things on the internet without actually doing them himself.

Speaking of stupid things, he got hit by a truck today (long story). No serious injuries, just his knee, still reminds me that we need to get ambulance cover. In fact I think I will leave today's post at that and sign up right away.

Lunch


Ok, check out my lunch!

Appetising? Coffee, vitamin dissolve drink thing and low-fat, low-carb, low-taste shake. 

Damn all the cheese and junk I have been eating since Christmas! Between that and unemployment, my ass has become larger and more rotund not to mention the imprint it has made on the couch! I have been playing Viva Pinata around the clock and watching so much day time tv that I can't believe that there is nothing trashier than Antiques Road Show on at the moment. Rude! Bring back the trash! I missed Bold and Beautiful because I left the house (for only half an hour) to pick up some milk. *laughs* Damn caffiene habbit and I miss the trashiest show of the day. Obviously I needed the fresh air! 

Our shopping centre had a group of caravans parked in the outside courtyard. Now that sounds like adventure! I know that it is terribly uncool and Darian would be 100% uninterested. I think it would be fun! Quit my job, sell everything and buy a caravan and start driving. No money for fuel? No problem... just do a couple of nights as a bar attendant, fruit picker? There are hundreds of towns here in Oz to stop in and check out. Heaps of beaches to play on! It really would be nice. I wonder what it would be like to have no responsibilities! *laughs* I also wonder whether the cats would appreciate it as much as I would? They have been quite good with the two moves they have been subjected to so far. We are trying to find harnesses so we can take the cats outside every now and then, to remind them what grass is like. The vet says we can't take them to normal pet parks because a dog might attack them. 

I hate being broke, not working sucks! I have been thinking about get rich quick schemes. Stupid work online advertising/data entry websites are an absolute raught. Yep thats right you heard it here first. Before you spend the $50 to be sent the earn money online secrets... the secret is that the only data entry you are supposed to do is advertising on online auction sites to random people in the hopes that they too will spend $50 to be told to do the same thing and the company will flick you about a cent for your effort. I wonder how many people actually do this? Besides me that is *laughs* Why is nothing free? I am even sceptical at the moment about conventional work. I hate the superannuation set up in this country. I am sure during my interview that they told me that the figure they gave me was excluding superannuation. Now they tell me it is including superannuation. Don't get me wrong I know it isn't much to gripe about (only $3000 or so) but it annoys me. I am sure this has happened to me before. They do it on purpose! I can't think of a good reason other than to break your spirits before you even start! What can I do to combat the problem? Get them to write it down during the interview? They have you bent over a barrell with the damn "economic crisis". I shouldn't complain, I am lucky to even have found someone willing to hire me at this point. They even gave me homework to do before my first day! Just like going back to school damn it! Stuff it, I am going to make them wish that they didn't offer uncapped commissions! 

I remember reading in the "Tell your deepest secret" section in a gossip magazine. Normally it is a mixture of stories about women who sleep with other women's husbands or their partners brothers etc. But one of them was about a woman who wrote dirty stories for a mens magazine (here I was thinking they were written by men! I guess I am still not convinced). She says she was making $500 per story! Can you believe that? I want to do that! Porn actors probably don't even make that much per film! 

And on that note, I will leave my rant at that!
Love to all!

Spare time? Where are you?

"I miss you Spare Time! I can't wait for you to come back. You have missed a lot though! I will have to catch you up when I see you next."

But like the long distance friend you only hear from or see once in a blue moon, I will not see or hear from Spare Time for some time yet. Meanwhile, lack of spare time has meant some pretty exciting adventures! Darian's mum leaves tomorrow which will leave a bit of a hole in our days. Still with my Economic assignment due on Thursday, I think I will be able to fill at least some of that. 

Oh! I forgot to mention! How exciting, I am no longer unemployed. Well as of Monday next week. I got the paper work today and am going to the orientation on Friday this week. I didn't realise that you could have a job which you need an orientation for when you are a grown up but that is the expectation. This time it is in a call centre rather than in systems admin so I think the result is a great deal more structure then I am used to. I haven't really had structure since school so I am not sure how I will go there. I can't help but be a little excited about the new adventure. No facebook or blogging at work though. 

It is 3.30 in the morning and I need to go to sleep so I will leave it at that for today.

I hope you are all well!

Contemplating

I just read the post I put up last night. I cannot believe how stressed and high strung it makes me sound! I am not saying that I am not stressed or high strung, in fact anyone who knows me knows that I can't function any other way. Still I guess I didn't know how obvious I am! I hate it when the cracks are showing despite how hard I try to keep them to myself. 

The last few days have been really good though. I thought it was going to be mental with the extra work, joblessnes and visitor but because Darian's mum wants to spend time with him (of course) I have had time to sit at the coffee shop and work through my studies. That has been such a gift! I like the time that we have spent together and we are going out for dinner tonight at a restaurant that I like very much. It is fun watching her excitement, it reminds me of how good it is to see new places and experience new things. I guess the other thing is that she has an opportunity to spend time with the prodigal child *laughs*. 

I have been listening to a lot of stand up on You Tube because I can listen while I am working. 
This is Adam Hills who is such a crack up! I am researching because the Melbourne Comedy Festival starts next month and I have to make sure I see the best one because I can't afford to go to all of them. I really hope we get tickets to the Great Debate because it happens every year and is absolutely hilarious!
  


I hope this finds you all well and happy!
