Half-arsed is better than no arse

I handed in my assignment at 4.30am this morning, in time to watch the Netherlands Vs Spain but went to sleep instead. I heard this morning that the Dutch lost... Lucky my family isn't too fanatical about soccer. I know that there is at least one dutch collegue who is taking today off as compassionate leave. Gutted that I haven't pretended to take more of an interest! I could have taken compassionate leave too!

Maybe at 4.30am I am not at the top of my game and I didn't proof read the assignment (which is always bad) but by that time I was thinking "I don't care anymore" I have been working on this damn thing every night for weeks and if it isn't good enough now it won't ever be. Good ol stuff it mentality. Its funny actually how much work I will put into assignments like this... 2 weeks of late nights for 20% weighting. Just 20% while I will cram a total of 5 hours the night before for a 50% weighted exam. I think I am doing it wrong.

I think I am up the sleepy cranky end of the dwarf scale today.



Just trying to remember their names:
Doc, Happy, Dopey, Bashful, Sleepy, Cranky (not so sure about that one).... ok I got 7... what is the other ones name?

Should get back to work

Mobile Phone... is there anything you can't do?

I was procrastinating... again... and found a competition by Gizmodo for photographs taken with mobile phones.

I stole my favorite... check the others out, you won't be disappointed!



Samsung Pixon
12 Program
Mode ISO 50 Macro Focus
The picture was taken in "Vintage Mode" with the exposure dialed down a few notches. I was standing outside, trying to find something that I could possibly use in this contest, when my daughter came outside wanting to blow bubbles. We had previously been out in the pool together and I had earlier hung our bathing suits outside to dry. As we were playing, a good sized bubble found its way into the the puddle that had been left behind on the railing, so I pulled out my phone, quickly toggled a few settings, and this was what I got!

Thank you Gizmodo for again helping me to waste time!

Are they paying us out?

Darian and I cannot figure out if the add claiming that the Total Care Toothbrush is a revolution in tooth hygiene, is serious or is it taking the piss out of us. Revolution? Really? A hole in the handle, so that you can hold onto the toothbrush better and give you greater control over where the brush goes. Personally I have never had a problem holding onto my toothbrush... I have one with a non-slip handle just in case my hand is slippery (I get it, you are in the bathroom so soap and water make your hand slippery). I am not sure about revolution... OK I need to stop being sarcastic but seriously, what marketing brainy-ac came up with this advertising campaign?



There's nothing worse than picking up a brand new toothbrush only to get home and find it's a dud. That's where our trusty reader reviews come in, helping you sort the Good, the Bad and the plain Ugly. See what they thought of REACH's Total Care Toothbrush


Yes, for me a dud toothbrush is at the top of my "concern" list. Right before money, famine and world peace.

Sleep tight www!

Froggy Furi

My mum buys the best presents (probably because she knows me so well). I don't want gadgets or clothes or even money (although I won't say no to any of those things... free stuff is free stuff). Mum bought me a Froggy Furi for Christmas one year. Its one of those kitchen gadgets that you only use twice a year but they just make yor kitchen fun.


Darian said that if I ever cut myself with it then he would take it away from me. (It's the V-Slicer debacle all over again!) I can't use it in front of him because he freaks me out... just waiting for me to slip and slice off a hand. If I had sharp knives, there would be no problem because I would be used to using sharp things but because I have a house full of things that are supposed to be sharp - but are most definately blunt (apparently kitchen knives are an alternative to power tools, screwdrivers and chisels) - I am just not used to my Froggy Furi which is like a razor blade. I totally cut myself when I cleaned the thing last night... damn it. I don't even care about the cut so much as the "I told you so".

I am at work so I had better get back to it.
Love to all!

X Factor

Just spent the day in the X Factor audience. Watching people get shot down in real life is so much worse than on TV. There were some really cool moments and some truly terrible acts but all in all it was a great day!


The photo was taken before we got told "no cameras allowed". I don't normally put photos of myself here but it hardly looks like me anyway.
