freaky man...

not only did my new post template change... my pc died completely...

methinks the power supply or mobo just said "that's enough!! I'm outta here girlie!!"

neways, i'm here on my old faithful servant, cyrix(instead)686 PR200mx, 64mb RAM, ahh don't you just love it??? and it will be a while before i can sift thru 40GB from my s*** - other box (here's hoping the barracuda survived) and drag some stuff over here to my huge 4GB hdd... so i have no bookmarks or anything, even my icq doesn't have my uploaded contacts... and old msn - doubt this machine would run the most recent version so gonna leave that alone...

so yeah... you will be seeing even less of me in the short term at least...



ciao for now...

caff :'(

Never have i been so proud to be an honourary member of the *S* family....

JenJen so good they named her twice the Rambunctious one astounds me. Totally. I am humbled and honoured to have received such amazing dedicated frienship.... truly.

My dear friend made my move, her move. Took care of everything and worked like a dog. Even secretly arranged and paid for things that she knew were making me fret. Fretting is stupid, no doubt about it but i think every button i have left has been pressed in the last 12 months, and i have succumbed to much stupid fretting of late.

Thankyou and I love you do not say nearly enough!!!!!!!

I even got to see Rusty!!!! looking forward to trivial pursuit!!

Now my entire hoarde of goodies is at my new home, which doesn't have any view other than multi story buildings and car parks i'm afraid megha, I miss my trees already!! Although, when watering my plants last night, a little sandy gecko hitchhiker scurried for drier ground, very pleased i was to see him, i hope he survives the move and stays with me :).

a conundrum

what to do, especially you arachnophobes, when a spider runs along your bare leg whilst driving down Greenhill Rd, in the city, at 60kph?


I have the answer. Keep driving whilst peeking at it for identification purposes should a hospital trip be required.

The other part of that answer is, don't wear shorts when transporting a sigma full of mature pot plants... just asking for trouble!! That spidey is still in the car somewhere, methinks it was a wolf spidey, but it was so fast i can't be sure.

phone seems fine now thankfully :)

I don't think i'll be heading to the Exeter tonight, I'm quite exhausted and i'm not sure i want to risk toxic smoke exposure with so little reserves of energy and still so much unpacking etc. to do.

ciao for now
xx :-)

bad jokes make the heart grow fonder...

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgery. As she lay her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said: "I'm so sorry, Cuddles has passed away." The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure?" "Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead", he replied "How can you be so sure", she protested. "I mean, you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."
The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room, and returned a few moments later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head.
The vet patted the dog and took it out, and returned a few moments later with a beautiful cat. The cat jumped up on the table and also sniffed delicately at the bird. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room.
The vet looked at the woman and said, "I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."
Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill which he handed to the woman. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$350!", she cried, "$350 just to tell me my duck is dead?!!" The vet shrugged.

"I'm sorry. If you'd taken my word for it, the bill would have been $40, but what with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan.......

apologies for formatting - i'm moving house - no time sorry

The government claims the public is being protected from harmful exposure to toxic chemicals and that international standards in chemical regulation are working adequately.The truth is that low levels of common chemicals in pesticide, paint, cleaners, new building materials, perfumes, plastics, glues and many other products are causing multiple chemical sensitivity and other poorly recognised health problems.The failure of governments and bureaucrats to address these problems in chemical regulation has resulted in a public health crisis with large numbers of people disabled with MCS and ignored.The Commonwealth’s Office of Chemical Safety advises the government to take no action on MCS, has failed to protect the public health interest and is engaged in serious human rights abuses against people with MCS.

Responding To The Public Health Crisis Of Chemical InjuryiPO Box 3308, Port Adelaide, 5015i Ph (08) 8240 5084i
E-mail: satfmcs@optusnet.com.au


MCS is a serious and growing public health problem that affects people of all ages, races and economic backgrounds. People with MCS are made sick by exposure to chemicals found in common products such as pesticides, perfumes, tobacco smoke, new carpets, air “fresheners”, new paint and building materials, and many cleaning and laundry products. Symptoms of MCS vary from mild to life threatening and include headache, asthma, nausea, diarrhoea, fatigue, muscle and joint pain, dizziness, irregular heart beat and seizures. MCS symptoms in children include attention deficit, hyperactivity and other learning and behavioural problems. People with severe MCS are often diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue SyndromeMany people have developed MCS after a pesticide or solvent exposurePublic health studies in the USA show that around5% of the US population have been medically diagnosed with MCS.Many of these people have been permanently disabled.MCS has no cure but it can be prevented. Avoiding toxic chemicals is essential for a healthier environment.Prevent MCS - Demand Clean Air

love in the back seat of a matchbox car...

or indeed, in my kitchen sink with a matchbox car!

moving became a little more real to me this afternoon, (like it hasn't been rammed down my throat since october), with a very real and definite offer of a town house just south of the city, as opposed to the boarding house caretakers appartment that i thought i was getting.

Having a look tomorrow, as soon as keys are available will be off and looking... will tell all asap of course ;)!!

so i did a little more packing today, had given it a rest for a bit what with teh torn knee ligaments and having to grovel in low cupboards and stand on chairs to reach stuff in high ones... daym bein a shortie!!!
but today, back to the groveling and boxing. I happened upon one of my quaint but not very efficient storage devices, an old skool arnotts biscuit tin, which housed my matchbox car collection... and somehow i had put some travel sized toiletries in there as well, no doubt after a holiday at sometime........... anyway... has some leakage of "the body collection, lime sorbet body wash" throughout the tin, and all through my matchbox cars........ and a rogue rca cable that i *ahem* aquired from the audio / video supply dept at uni back when i was doing film and television *cough* sorry french dude in charge of equipment!!! and sorry i've forgotten your name - but not your temper incidentally!!!!

anyhoo.. off to the kitchen sink with my matchbox cars... the supercats, the mod rods, the grader, the rubbish truck the mercs the lamborghini thankfully, being on display in the loungeroom didn't suffer this fate, the cement truck
the horse float, the horse truck, the motorbike trailer, the dog ute (ford with dog tray, not a dodge typo), umm and who knows what else... oh yeah.. a police car i found when i first moved in here... in the garden mire... had a few fights with the lawwnmower too no doubt .... time for a dunkin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

it wasn't long before i progressed from cleaning to playing... man i don't know if you've ever done this.. but when you fill up the cab of your matchbox cars with water... it looks so much like in the movies when the cars end up in the lake or the ocean or whatever.. slowly sinking..... so i was having my own dambusters demo derby action movie with matchbox cars in the kitchen sink.. giggling like the mad thing i am.. having a lovely time splashing about by myself... :)

so much more cheerful than other things that i chose not to share today :D

lamborghini ciao!

pretty much how i feel right now...

"Sleeping With Ghosts" ~ Placebo

The sea's evaporated
Though it comes as no surprise
These clouds we're seeing
Their explosions in the sky
It seems it's written
But we can't read between the line

It's okay
Dry your eye
Dry your eye
Soulmate dry your eye
Dry your eye
Soulmate dry your eye
Cause soulmates never die

This one world vision
Turns us in to compromise
What good's religion
When it's each other we despise
Damn the government
Damn the killing
Damn the lies

It's okay
Dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Dry your eyes
Soulmate dry your eyes
Cause soulmates never die

Soulmates never die
Never die
Soulmates never die
Never die...
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
Soulmates never die
