This is Not the Life I Ordered...

Sep. 7th, 2009 06:17 pm upda Update UPDATE!

Well, the shop , apart from last minute faffing about, is almost finished and my hands are almost back to their natural colours. There's still one case to make, and adjustments to be made to the finished ones, but K. has the capability to actually sell stuff now.

Lets see how that goes.

Me? i'd liek to take a few days to recover from the last minute YAAAAAA rush to finish, and the illness that the stress bought on. i'd also really really REALLY like to spend time with Miss A. next weekend will have to suffice.

Mar. 15th, 2009 03:21 pm things in the tabloids...

Seen earlier in the week, a big headline hoo-hah about upcoming plotlines in that masterpiece of australian drama Home & Away, mostly 'OMG lesbians on the televion! Somebody think of the children!!!!'

My immediate thought was 'mardi gras was last weekend and they're getting upset about this?' Second thought; 'There is no such thing as bad publicity, especially when it comes to soap opera.'

I didn't get to a third thought, my brain stopped cos there was a picture of two hot girls kissing on the cover of a major newspaper.

Seen today...

OMG it BURNS and it won't go AWAY.

kill it with fire!

PLAN A. proceeds apace.

Told the boss he has a month or so of me still in canberra. I'm giving notice so i finish either just before or just after easter.

It's a biggish step. Must have party.

A. came down on the weekend. I was a bundle of nerves all week (will she come doen? won't she come down? she's working a full shift then driving ??. I receive a message sat morning. She's coming down. YAY!! more fretting from about 5pm, as she drives down. it'sa long trip for sparki, her little car.

She arrives safely and we spend til 3pm sunday just being together. Bliss. it is now tuesday. 3 more sleeps and i have the long weekend with her.

Work has gone into slow mode again. Unless deliveries are made, i have one (1) thing to do at work tomorrow. This will not take all day. And there is only so much sweeping that can be done. At least this bodes well for friday.

Does it also mean it's a good time to enact operation: get the bloody hell out of canberra and up to sydney on a permanant basis.

Otherwise known as Plan A.

Big City details...

After another early morning bus ride, an slow train and a dash through the storm, i was once again grinning like a fool as i greeted A. Momentary chat, and a few wasted hours till she finished work and the world was the mollusc of choice.

Said choice being a trip to the west, a small party, pizza and a viewing of Mr Whedons new televisual drama, Dollhouse. It's interesting and has room to develop.

A night of snuggling and breakfast from the bakery, plans to go by ferry to manly and have fish and chips on the corso...then a change of plan with a drive to manly with A's mum and semi good fast food watching the yachts, and return via the ferry with gelato.

More bus, compounded by ticket mixups, late running buses etc, got me home late. I cannot express how much i grow to dislike waving goodbye to A; not knowing when i'll see her again.

Work coninues well, the big rush seems to have passed and new guys settling in well. should make it easier when i finally settle on a move date and head north, bag, chattels and alll

Feb. 24th, 2009 06:29 am The trick is the timing

After another fun trip to the big city to see A. i discover that the urge to get out of Canberra is starting to really dig in. I think, however, i might know when i doing it, i just have to consult with various connected parties.

Feb. 20th, 2009 09:12 pm Free stuff.

With much luck and internet-fu (and good friends, always important!) i have free trip to sydney to visit A.

Much happy.

Maybe we'll even get to the mongolian dumplings this time.

IN an effort to keep A. posted, as she is keeping me posted, i'm going to start keeping this thing up to date.

Work continues as good as it ever gets, which is to say, i'd really like to find something better, and with more learning opportunities. For what the boss wants to do, he needs to organise better. Sure he wants more flowing through. Sure we can do it. but we can't process the orders where the materials havn't arrived, and the time he thinks it takes doesn't acount for me having to go do things that other people used to do, but they all quit. Or were fired. And didn't pass on their knowledge before they did. I'm still at the 'monkey push buttons' skill level with the postformer. I'm beginning to get the knack of the beam saw, but it was 'learn as you do and don't waste board' pssht riiight. Still not sure if i want to work 5 and half days a week, but with the new guys might not have to. pssht riiight.

Life continues to be interesting. A is in Sydney, I am here. Something i wish to remedy soon damnit. I'm not in the mood to get ues to seeing somone i care a lot about once a fortnight, if i'm lucky. cf Work. Telling the boss 'no can't work saturday and i'm gone friday at 4' doesn't fit in with his plans for world domination.

Games. Well the painting has stopped for a bit, it was too hot to paint (paint would dry on brush en route to figurine). Eve(both accounts)is on hiatus. It's lost me for a while, i played for social interaction, and myy corp was no action at all. blah. I must confess to purchasing , installing, patching and playing Wow. I Have my reasons, and good reasons they are. It's actually quite enjoyable and i can stop anytime i want!

Aug. 31st, 2007 08:17 pm News from the back

And in news just to hand, I'm moving house for the 3rd time this year. Now that I'm not dependent on the good will of other people and holding the lease, i'm planning on holding this place for yeeeaaaars. i will also try to post more often detailing the trials and tribbleations of the new home, tentatively named Refuge of the pagan panda. on the other hand it's going to be a while till net access catches up and the TV i was supposed to be picking up has pitched a fit. so no tv OR net. I may go mad!
