Okay, so I know it's a little rude to pop out of the woodwork and ask for something but here it goes:

Does anyone have a copy of "That girl" by Maxi Priest feat. Shaggy? I searched the Internet but it has failed me. My friend needs it for a play she's directing. And while I'm here has anyone got The Killers covering Dire Straits - "Romeo and Juliet"?

PS. So how is everyone? :)

*checks pulse* yep, I'm still alive.

Nothing much new to report here - still doing about 65 hours a week and trying to have a life in between.

I'll find out next month whether I've been kicked out of uni or not (due to poor progress). The sad thing is is that I'm not sure if I really care either way.

Oh, I may also lose my job this month due to poor performance. Okay, so I'm being dramatic. As the assistant manager who has only been doing the job for 5 months or so I'm not going to be blamed exactly - but my boss will either be sacked or transferred and I'm not sticking around if he leaves. I'll be really sad if he loses his job because he's a fantastic manager and doesn't deserve to take the rap for what is (in my mind) upper management's failure to pull their finger out and help us.

But in a way I'm looking forward to washing my hands of the whole situation. I still have my other job at the train station I can rely on.

So, where I am right now?
- if I lose my job this month = I go full time at my other job where I will get better pay for less hours
- if I get kicked out of uni = I get depressed a bit but then get over it and start looking at other universities interstate, and start thinking about working holidays
- if I get to stay in uni = I start studying but look at transferring somewhere else.

So that's me. What about you guys? What have I missed out on? :)

"rage, rage against the dying of the light."

I won't let work tire me out anymore. Sure, I'm doing 50+ hours in a six day week but I'm sick of my life being work, work, work. Fuck that. I'm getting a hobby :)

Time to break open photoshop. Or crack open the guitar case. Or start my vegetable garden. I'm only 21 dammit - I refuse to feel like an old lady.

I'm back. Kinda. A lot has happened in the past month or so.

+ I have a new house (with a garden!)
+ I've taken a year off study to try to gain some perspective on things.
+ I've signed a 45 hour contract at Subway that will kill me but I get to be an assistant manager and I won't feel so bad now when I boss people around.
+ I have to get all four of my wisdom teeth taken out because they're severly impacted (one is growing horizontally into my other teeth) but I have no private health insurance because I'm no longer a student *sigh*
+ I finally went to the doctor about the numbness in my hand and an ultra sound revealed nothing so the next step is an MRI.
+ We're seriously considering moving to Melbourne next year as when we think about it there is very little keeping us here.
+ Adelaide has had a fucking long heat wave. About three weeks of 35 degree plus weather (that's 95 Fahrenheit). I hate hot weather and I want to go somewhere where it is always cold.

... I think that's it. If you think I've been ignoring you or not commenting I'm sorry :( I only just got the internet back last week and I've been so incredibly busy - I still check my friends page as often as I can.

I'm still obsessed with David Bowie, and am gaining a keen interest in 80s music due to the lovely Life on Mars spin off, Ashes to Ashes. Does anyone have a copy of "Vienna" by Ultravox, or "Ghosts" by Japan? I can't seem to get my hands on them.

Apologies for being absent lately. I've been working around 50 hours a week and trying to find a house, and packing up my current one. We still don't have anywhere to move to. The final inspection is tomorrow morning so we will officially be homeless.

We have a place that is promising and we will know by Wednesday, so fingers crossed. It's been a stressful start to the year.

Oh, and ever since I locked my journal (using the 'lock all entries' function), even after I reversed it back to being public, all my posts have been automatically locked. When I first post an entry the privacy function will be set to 'public' but it will still be locked. Has this happened to anyone before? It's very frustrating :(

I let my paid account expire and now I've lost most of my icons *sob* I forgot that would happen.

I forgot my sister's birthday. I thought it was today but it was actually on the 16th. To make things worse I actually called her up then asking for ideas for Christmas presents. *sigh*

And I'm incredibly pissed off now because I've tried to pay my phone bill and my stupid fucking credit union has added "extra security" to transfers so I have to enter a three icon 'password' each time. And I forgot it and maxed out my three tries. So I can't have access to my own fucking account until I ring them. Yes, I know, security is good thing, but what's wrong with normal passwords. God dammit.

What a wonderful, sunny day to take a walk down to the polling booths.

It's election day and I just submitted my first ever vote. I'm a real grown up now :)

I love that out of the 5 national TV stations 3 are having no ads coverage of the results, one is showing Ewan McGregor's doco "Long Way Around" (and are probably going to get their best ratings in years) and one is showing "The Empire Strikes Back". Someone at channel 10 has a quirky sense of humour :P

Ugh. I just watched 28 Weeks Later. What a fucking stupid movie. I am OFFENDED at how ridiculous it was. 28 Days Later was moving and horrifying and amazing and I loved it. The sequel made me want to hunt down the writer and director and punch them in the face.

I hate it when movies make no sense and characters do stupid, incomprehensible things just to churn the story forward. Ugh *spits* Perhaps the thing that makes me hate it the most is the fact that it's not just a bad movie - it's a bad movie that wants so, SO much to be a great movie. And it fails. Spectacularly. Honestly, I don't know how anyone can like it. Please, if you do, let me know why.


Nothing much happening on my end apart from work, work, work. Oh, I saw Muse live for the second time last week. Matt Bellamy is the sexiest creature alive. It's just a fact.

I'll be so glad once this year is over. 2007 can get the fuck out :(
