Monday Again

No matter how much I wanted the weekend to stay, I woke up and it was Monday again. Lame. Today has been pretty successful though I have to say. Completed many tasks at work... unfortunately many more to go but I am working through the paper mountain. The exciting thing though for today is the fact that I am watching a movie on my PS3 and my working television.

So here is the story of my newish TV

My friend found a TV on the side of the road. It had been raining and whoever owned the TV before it ended up in my house had cut the power cord... presumably so that no one would take it? Well we showed them! The TV sat here in my lounge room for about a month because for some reason, the fact that I have it in my house means that I am now responsible for its disposal and I would feel guilty about leaving it on the side of the street. What kind of greenie would I be? (The answer to that question is "light green" very very light green) After staring at it for a while I decided it needed to start working again. I talked to my electrician friend who said that legally I am allowed to replace the plug, all I have to do is go to Bunnings and buy one for about $3, pull the plastic coating back and put the copper bits in the colour coded clamps and voila... new plug. And when I plugged my new plug into the power ... the TV worked! Whoop! So I bought a set top box and an RV Cable for my PS3 and it all works. The reception in my apartment is a bit rubbish but that is because whoever painted the walls didn't even try to avoid the TV Antenna socket. The TV is perfect (well its a bit of a downgrade from the 42 inch plasma but the sense of achievement makes up for that) and the first movie I am watching is Astro Boy!

Now it is time to get some work done before I curl up with Honey for a proper nights sleep.

Thermostat

Somebody flicked a switch because it went from normal shitty Melbourne weather to freezing cold and rainy shitty Melbourne weather in the space of a couple of days. Really glad that I live in Australia because this grey miserableness ends in a couple of weeks to a month tops. I feel for the people all the way up in the Northern Hemisphere who have this for 6 months of the year. Meanwhile... right now they are enjoying their Spring/Summer while I am freezing my ass off in what is supposed to be Autumn! I promise I will stop ranting after this one last comment: I HATE FOOTBALL and it is a religion here!

So onto brighter news... my office has heating!

I know I am supposed to be working/studying but I managed to find time to do a bit of research in the last couple of days.

#1 discovery - David Bowie has anisocoria... he had part of his right eye dislocated during a [play?] fight with a school friend called George Underwood which is why one pupil is bigger than the other. And yes... before you judge me... I did go to a website called "Bowie Wonder World". I tried to explain this to someone else and I made the same mistake... it is his left eye (obviously). In the photo it is on my right so his left. The left/right thing messes me up every time!




#2 discovery - Albert Fish = Crazy-sick-twisted man! And actually so is Gary Ridgeway for that matter. 
#3 discovery - I should not research serial killers when I am by myself and without lights 
#4 discovery - Refer #3 but for watching Paranormal Activity ... even though I watched it with Miss V... I still had to sleep with a night light on for a couple of nights

#5 discovery - It is not only possible but also common for men to have brown hair and a ginger beard. I was wondering because my dad has ginger in his beard (which explains my little brother) but apparently Ginger-beard-men aren't that rare. There is a Facebook page dedicated to it. There is a scientific explanation behind it but I won't bore you with it... something about having enough ginger indicators on so many chromosomes but not enough to be a full ginger.

And now I really should get some work done... Is it lunch time yet?
By the way: why does blogger bother with having a spell checker? Since when is miserableness a word?... Actually one sec (I love the internet) - Just checked the dictionary and it is a word! Spell checker is still broken.

Love you guys!

To set the scene:
It is 8.26am on a Monday morning, I have just arrived at work feeling like I have been robbed of at least 3 hours sleep that my body wishes I could have had and imagine my delight at finding this in my inbox from my parents. They have officially made my Monday!



I hope it cheers up anyone else suffering from Mondayitis... which I think should be a medically recognised illness.

Love to all
