On the 12th day of Christmas, my true love gave to me....

a trip to the hospital ed.

Yup I got drunk and fell through a window (due to some stupid bastard).

My arms are a wreck, I'm sore and grumpy and I have the hangover from hell. I even drank coffee (I rarely drink coffee). There's a hole the size of a five cent piece in my left thumb, a massive hole in my right arm along with cuts and scratches and bruising. I've also got a 1/2 cm gash in my right wrist thats taped up with plastic stitches and I had to have a tetnus shot.

My new jeans are covered in blood and fucking egg whites (it was a dessert window related incident) and Andrew is threatning to kill one of our so called friends who started the whole fight.

I got some awesome xmas presents this morning including Darth Vader Potato Head. I love the pandyr. Merry Xmas everyone :) ps no more margaritas and aftershock shots ever.

Stupid Hats

On Friday our work are having a hat day. We're all to wear hats all day, and only take them off when leaving the building. We have three secret judges, and prizes for creativity and so forth.

Our team (there are four of us) were struggling with what to wear - I was going to just use my halo headband, but then I remembered on mum's last trip down, she had brought my family these silly animal hats.

I called my aunt and she had them, so she couriered them to me at work.

We snuck into the boardroom and I opened the box. The girls were in hysterics - we will be wearing the following : Octopus (bright pink and yellow with the legs hanging around the face; Parrot (yellow, red and blue, with wings); Chicken (white and yellow); and Cow (black and white).

I am the cow.

We've decided to go hard out and convert our desks into the theme of the hat. We're going to past signs on our chairs about us being an Animal Park, put up fences between the desks so we have our own pens, and I've borrowed appropriate office clutter to use on our themes - the parrot will be encased in a jungle setting - so far I scored her a stuffed giraffe and monkey to hang on her desk somehow. The chicken will have some eggs - I will have some milk cartons, rubber gloves, and whatever else I can find.

We have made trees our of newspapers.

I think we might win :)

Bloody Reality

Every time I get involved in reality tv I get so far into the season and then I have to log on to Television Without Pity and find out who won. I don't know if its because I want the knowledge before my addicted co-workers, or if I am just incapable of leaving the surprise for myself.

I think only one series of Survivor was played here the same time as in the States (when I say same time, I mean same week), so it wasn't so bad - but Guatemala is just so full on, and I hate at least two of the tribespeople - one of whom is still in the final four of the reading of the page I am on now - and it's doing my head in. I should stop reading. Nah fuckit.

Ooooh I can't wait to see this puppy on tv. We just had the episode where Margaret got voted off, and Rafe gave his immunity to Gary - wtf was that about, when it was obvious in council they were either going to gun for Amy or Brian. Dumbass.

I'm also addicted to America's Next Top Supermodel (will they come to New Zealand fashion week?), Project Runway, and of course, The Amazing Race. Although TAR and Survivor are shown same time but different networks here, so I've gone Survivor this time.

Oh and don't get me started on Extreme Home Makeover - the Crying edition :)


I always do surveys. In fact I am probably a telemarketers dream. Actually I know I am. Saturday I did a survey on entertainment, today I'm doing one on bread.

Bread is pretty fucking boring - and the survey is taking forever.

I hope I win a prize :)

Harry Potter

Last night I saw the latest Harry Potter movie, and I have to say I was a little disapointed. I know they can't recreate every aspect of the books, but there was SO much missing - including house elves - and I wondered for those people who haven't read the books if the movie would make sense.

I cried of course - well just had a few tears - I knew I would, I bawl my eyes out every time I read The Goblet of Fire.

So now I'm trying to figure out how they will find the room of requirement - after all Dobby puts Twinky there when she is too drunk - but they didn't introduce her in the movie - and we missed out on seeing Percy and Charlie - and they really emphasised how alone Harry is, when in the book Mrs Weasley comes to support him in the last phase of the triwizard tournament.

It really sucks to have a vivid imagination - now I'm worried if Narnia can live up to what my mind has created for it, however, it will be amusing to see our countryside - I just hope there's no Shortland Street actors like there was in LOTR.

Sleep Cont...

The only good thing about today was my tail wind ride home.

I sometimes think cars really underestimate how fast a cyclist can move - especially when you've got the wind behind you.

Ahem, by cars I mean people driving cars.


I'm so glad its Friday. I'm exhausted. I've spent the last three days trapped in an office with a woman who treats me like dirt. I'm focused on pretending it doesn't affect me, but by the time I get home I am exhausted from faking that her nasty behaviour isn't bothering me, when really I want to tell her to go fuck herself.

It's so hard to pretend to be upbeat and chirpy - especially when I ask a question and she replies with the bare minimum, won't have a conversation with me, tells me off for asking questions that she thinks I should know the answers to and I could go on...

I watched her do this to another co-worker when I first came on board, I never thought I would be the next victim. She's coming pretty close to an office bully - and it really does affect me, my eating is out of control again, all I want to do after a day in her presence is go home and chill out, not hit the gym like I should.

The searches.

So today I thought I'd check out my little tracker thingy - see how people are ending up here and I have the most bizarre ones.

Lose 28 kilos in 8 weeks!
Yes thats totally possible. Not.

Being thin is more important that being healthy.
Right. I'm not sure what to say to this is except you don't have to be thin to be healthy. My best friend is tiny compared to me, and I am fitter.

Curves are sexy.
Hell yeah! I like this one :)

and my favourite....

Cassandra Goth.
The sims are taking over!


I had a couple of job interviews this week. The first one was horrible, and I knew when I walked in that it wasn't the right place for me. In between answering some questions a cellphone starts ringing, and the guy interviewing me says 'Oh I HAVE to take this' and walks out. The other person in the interview carries on, like this extreme rudeness isn't happening. I took time out of my day, to visit a company who don't even have the manners to give me their full attention.

I was not impressed. They are making a decision on Friday, and if they choose me, I think I'll be saying no.

The second one was yesterday and it fucking rocked. I loved everything about the offices, the interviewers were awesome, the job sounds fantastic and perfect for me... however, towards the end when they asked me what I thought - I had to be honest and say 'this is a really awesome job, and the only thing I can see that you guys might have an issue with is that I don't have a driver's license'. Then I told them a story about how I went to get it and the woman behind the counter embarrassed me by yelling out 'YOUR LEARNERS LICENSE??' to the entire staff of the AA. They laughed, and the guy said 'That's easily fixable'.

I decided this morning, that if I get a second interview - I'm going to get my learners before it, so I can show them that I am motivated and I really really want the job.

Fingers crossed for me guys!

I'm not sure how it happened, but suddenly it is December.

I have my Mum's presents organised, but not the Pandyr. Last year I actually fooled him into thinking he was getting dvd's and instead he recieved a very nice leather wallet. This year, I'm stumped.

Boys are so hard to buy for.

Me - I can go pink shoes, chocolate, books and purfume and I am one happy girl.
