a public apology

i got a phone call today from america. it seems that they don't particularly like yahoo serious and would like me to apologise on ebehalf of australia for him.
well, let me tell you, when america calls you....well, when america called me today i just laughed and thought, 'hey, your toilet flushes upwards you dumbasses', but i didnt say it, so that makes it ok.
soe here i go

on behalf of australia, i apologise for yahoo serious. i do not, however, apologise for young einstein cos i thought that movie was really funny. mr accident, im waiting for my apologies from yahoo serious himself.

when i was a handy man i fixed your shower so it wouldnt leak
when i was a time keeper i watched the clock so you wouldnt over sleep
now im not your girl no more and i dont know what to do
i've got no one to watch out for and i dont have you

remember when i made you coffee, you liked it for the first time in your life
you always borrowed all of my cds and my pocket knife
now i'm not your girl no more and you gave my cds back
dont know what to do with myself, i dont have you

when i was your girl you needed me all the time to show you how good you were
slowly you worked it all out for yourself and you didnt need me anymore
and now that she's your girl and she knows just what to do
she just smiles and kisses your cheek because she has you

you'll find a way

no doubt you're crying three suburbs away
life goes on, me i'm walking around the block
you said we never should have bothered
but i looked into your heavy eyes and said 'no'

you'll find a way to be happy again my love
you'll find a way to be happy again, my old love

you can't say they were bad time
remember you laughing yourself off the bed?
ain't sex funny? something to be done
occasionally with someone you don't hate

you'll find a way to be happy again my love
you'll find a way to be happy again my old love

we had a fine time dancing with the faeries
but time has left me so reserved again
time has left me so reserved again my old love

you'll find a way to be happy again my love

My inner child is ten years old today

My inner child is ten years old!

The adult world is pretty irrelevant to me. Whether
I'm off on my bicycle (or pony) exploring, lost
in a good book, or giggling with my best
friend, I live in a world apart, one full of
adventure and wonder and other stuff adults
don't understand.

How Old is Your Inner Child?

dear secret boy who tags my board

i have absolutely no idea who you are. i've tried thinking about who chris used to hang out with, and i cant really remember that many people. michael, travis, jake, russell....and then there were the boys who were younger, matt, simon, aaron...

the question was posed to me yesterday that i hadnt actually thought about until then:

who did i want you to be?

i had to think about that. if i look over that list....well, let me tell you something about each of those boys.

michael : i kissed him in year 12 at a cast party, and fell asleep holding his hand a couple of years later at another cast party
travis : i kissed travis on the cheek at a birthday party, while playing spin the bottle
jake : i went out with jake in year 10, and swooned over him in the following years
matt and aaron : one time, at a party at jakes, (i stuck a flute up my pussy...mmm, willow....) i was sitting on the lounge between aaron and matt, underneath a blanket. at exactly the same time, both boys reached over to hold my hand.
simon : meh, nothing about simon except that he lived next door to me for a while, i never liked him like that anyway.

so there you have it.

there were other boys i liked throughout school. at the back of one of my diaries i have a few pages with rows and rows of boys names, all of which i thought were cute at one time or another. i wonder if you were on that list?

so, considering you arent gonna introduce yourself in a 'hi, my name is...' kind of fashion, i would like to invite you to play a game with me

wont you play with me?
you cant say they were bad times...

remember you laughing yourself off the bed?

australia day

it's australia day on the 26th of january. owing to my complete memory loss of everything i ever learned in school, im not totally sure what its about. maybe it's the day james cook got here and killed all the aboriginals, i dunno.

generally there are barbeques, and usually, triple j plays the hottest 100. i used to work, but now i just sit around in my house and do the same thing as i do every other day.

not this australia day

nope, nosiree, this australia day i am hoping to be at the queens arms for the queer as folk launch party. wooohooo, season 3 off with a bang at a gay pub, i cant wait.

so, everyone come along and watch queer as folk with all the other queer as folkers, and hey. i'll be there, so what other reason do you need?

my brother

there are 3 years betwen my brother and i. he's 22, and im 25. it wasnt until i was 20, and had moved out of home that we actually had civil conversations.

i hated brett. hated him with a passion that no one had ever felt. he was a shit, and he knew it. he knew that he shit people and he did it anyway. i remember him laying on the lounge, my other brother aaron, sitting on the floor. he'd move his leg slowly, s l o w ly, till his big stinky feet were a centimetre away from aarons head. aaron would sit aptiently, until he'd ask brett nicely to move his foot. then brett would say, 'but im not doing anything, im just laying here'.
'move your foot'
'im not hurting anyone!'
' move your foot'
'aaron shut up'
'move your foot'

at that point aaron must have said move your foot a little differently cos it was time for brett to kick him.

in the head


then, of course, it was time for big sister to jump in. at this point i still was the big sister, and had a little up on brett. i couldnt just raise my hand at him and he'd run away like i used to, but i could jump on his chest, landing on my knees and pull his hair.

and i did


but only when he hurt aaron. not saying i didnt enjoy it :)

but now we get along really well. he came over tonight, invited himself over with a phone call '6:30, bbq, me and kristin, your house, be there', took the dishes out to the kitchen when we'd finished, bathed the kids, and after he left he brought me back a cookies and cream icecream.

he's cool to have around

did you know

that sometimes when you're sending packages overseas it can take weeks, even like, 6 weeks or something, for the package to get there?

thats a long time, it means that sometimes you really have to plan ahead

on a completely unrelated note, my birthday is the 2nd of march

a few random things

i just ate a whole circle of brie to myself - you all envy me

and now im considering getting out the camembert cos these rice crackers really arent all that flash hot with nothing on them. but for not im content sucking the salt off them and leaving them in a pile for my dog.

we had to go shopping tonight at marion because 'there are better chicks at marion than at reynella'. and while that is true, it doesnt justify my gelati melting on the way home

i cannot wait until forum starts

yay for my new hot or not pic - jeers to this rusty tailgate

the funniest games of 1980's trivial pursuit are played between matt and i when we are very very tired. we always draw

Saturday, January 03, 2004

oh yeah

i am currently eating nestle choc bits from the packet with a spoon. they went all melty and if i put them in the fridge they'll set together into one big lump so they'll be useless anyway.

that wasnt what i came back to blog about.

matt is reading the lord of the rings. its a pretty amazing feat for him since this time last year he was....i dont want to say struggling..making his way slowly throught the kids book 'the wonderful flight to the mushroom planet. but as of right now he has 40 pages left and i am very proud of him.

we went and saw return of the king the other night...boxing day, it was, the first day it was out here. we rang up that morning and couldnt get tickets until 10 o'clock that night. even with marc and josh getting there at 8, we still ended up with a crappy seat. but it was worth it

fucking awesome

that still only counts as one - gimli

mat and i got there at about 20 to 10. we were sposed to be there at 9 but we obvioulsy had more important things to watching world idol.
it was so funny. honestly, i could have sung better than a couple of them.
well done to that freaky guy for winning, he's got a really good voice. by far the best moment(s) were seeing kelly clarksons reactions each time she didnt get full points..aaaahhh, sweet. you could see it in her eyes, her little brain thinking 'but im american????'
fucking summer

howzit...i dont know if i have ever described to you people my intense dislike for hot weather. you may say to yourself, hey, everyone gets a bit sick of hot weather every now and then, its not *that* bad, but let me tell you, yes, it is that bad.
i hate summer. i hate hot weather. im rather opposed to any temperature above 26 degrees, most especially at night. i hate being sweaty. i hate having sweaty underknees. i am rather chuffed with my new deoderant though, so i guess thats one thing.

i bleached my hair. i was feeling summery at christmas time and my hair just wasnt cutting it. so i thought, hey, i've got some bleach in the cupboard, i might just put it in my hair. so i did, and the results werent so great. here, i'll take a picture.

it started to burn my head before it was properly the right colour so as a result i have stupid hair. i might just leave it as i really cant be bothered going to the hair dresser or attempting to fix it myself. we can all see what happened when i tried to do something myself...yes...not a good look.

btw, has anyone heard of the sundance weirdo? apparently its from the muppet babies and he has a song that goes like this

im the sundance weirdo
thats what i do
on one foot a skate
on the other a shoe

if this is not real, i'd like to take this opportunity to say that my son has the most amazing imagination in the entire universe.

my new years went off with a....fneh

at midnight i was called into matts parents loungeroom to watch some people perform a song from the lion king.

i was not drunk, nor had i had any drinks except a baileys, which at first came to me as a baileys, milk and pineapple juice, (pineapple juice? yeah - says the bartender nodding when he's asked if he put juice in my baileys).

i then sat in a car as matt went to get josh who was attempting to stop a fight between his boss and a security guard of their establishment.

we drove home, matt suggested getting drunk and stoned down the beach.

we got home went to bed minus drugs and/or drink and i fell asleep reading harry potter

roll on 2005
i do hope you all had a good time though
