It’s my birthday in two days!!!
Most time consuming assignment ever
I have reason to believe I have just put the finishing touches on the powerpoint of an oral assessment that has literally taken FOREVER to do. Seriously, it has taken about 75% of my time for the last three weeks. Just wading through the hundreds of emails from my group members has taken hours! I don’t mind doing the powerpoint, but trying to integrate their resources has been tough,...
the new NRL ad is BULLSHIT! I am going to write a letter and complain! They need to give EQUAL TIME to ALL TEAMS..There are teams who dont win every game but have passionate supporters - those teams need the promotions rather than the big name teams who dont need the promotion to sell tickets! Why give all that time to the Dragons, the Eels, the Storm and Brisbane? Supporters for other teams who...
I just discovered the reason that I will never ever go into any form of website design - I fucking hate HTML. It is so fiddley and sucks so much time out of you.I hope that I never have to teach it, ever. Why do kids even need to know HTML if you can pretty much do everything in a design view anyways? I was never taught HTML at school though, so maybe if I had been taught, the times when I...
Proof that Brisbane isnt the only crazy city in...
I was visiting my parents on the Gold Coast the other week, and we were in the car driving home from the beach. We had stopped at the lights and a lady was crossing the street. Wheeling a covered stroller. The kind with a mesh cover that you can see through. And we could see….a dog…in the stroller. What?
Random thought that I can be bothered to blog about but not google: What is 2h2o? or h3o?
I think my neighbours are growing pot.– Me.
Old people are funny
I was on the bus the other day and I was sitting on the aisle seat (Just a side note here, I hate sitting next to people on the bus. When I say hate, I really, really, really mean loathe sitting next to people. However, damn my mother for imparting on me all these manners, so I cant be rude and put the bag on the seat next to me, or sit on the aisle seat and leave the window seat empty to avoid...
The freaks hit the mall
In what I am guessing was an Anonymous protest against Scientology, people of all manners hit the mall the other weekend. Ok, so I wouldnt go out of my way to call them freaks, but its a good title. Goths, neogoths, emo’s and people in halloween costumes were parading around, waving signs and chanting. Good for them. How nice to care so much about a cause that you would go out in public,...
I have seen, in the period of a week, another two people waking around Brisbane...– me
Seen around Brisbane:
A middle aged, slightly overweight man, at McDonalds, eating (by himself) 2 Quarter Pounders 1 McChicken 2 large Fries 1 large Drink. Well done, sir. A young woman, green behive. Brown hair underneath the beehive. An old lady, pink socks with yellow spots, brown leather heeless shoes.
KFC Condoms: Fingerlicking good Pringles Condoms: Once you pop you cant stop....– A conversation in a lecture about major companies branching out into condoms.
Helen Garner is an Australian writer and teacher. Early in her teachings career, at high school, she told students they could put any questions the liked in the question box and she would answer honestly. As happens with teenage boys, the questions turned sexual. They asked a naughty question and she gave an honest answer, like she promised she would, and got fired for her response. We were talking about this during a lecture at uni.
Class: Cmon, what was the question. You know we will just google it.
Lecturer: It was about sex.
Lecturer: They asked her about the taste of oral sex.
(laughter from class)
Classmate 1: And she said...
Lecturer: It tastes quite good.
(uproar of laughter from class)
Classmate 2: What? She got expelled for that? She wasnt even being honest. It doesnt taste that good!
Oh yeah. Teenage Girls are DUMB!
Overheard two girls talking about what size fries to get.
Girl 1: What size is a medium? Is it the same as a large?
Girl 2: I think it is a large, but a bit smaller.
Girl 1: Oh.
Girl 2: Yeh. I got the medium and its the same as a large.
Girl 1: So the medium is just a large then.
Girl 2: Yeh.
Girl 1: (to cashier) Can I have a small fries?
I shit you not, this really happened.
One of the things I am always paranoid about is my hair. Does it look good? If its a pony tail - are there bumps or stray hairs? Does this hairstyle give me pig face or make me seem like an eleven year old trying to be like mummy? I always, always, use a mirror to check the back though. I mean, people are going to be walking behind me, sitting behind me, so why shouldnt I make the back look just...
Observations at work.
1. A woman, about 30ish, maybe younger, carrying a fendi bag with a WALKMAN! A walkman - can you believe it? 2. A young kid who had some sort of tic. He kept sticking his tongue out and in of his mouth really really quicky. 3. A man who came in several times and mentioned, every time, how food made in China will poison you. He was scared the vapour rub was made in Thailand, because, like things...
This is a poem I wrote tonight in my Writing Workshop class at uni. Obviously, its called Dear Wife (I cant figure out how to get a blank line between the verses, dangit) God is with me as i write this down Whether he forgives me I do not know Still the pen moves across the paper To release, through words, my soul. . While in the act I knew That I would live to regret that day Free will makes...
Do you fancy some bum?
Balls of Steel. This show is awesome. If you havent seen it, youtube it, or go to http://www.channel4.com/entertainment/tv/microsites/B/balls_of_steel/ I understand, but still dont like, why this is only on once a week and at 10:30PM. The Fuckers will always be the ballsiest in my book. I want to be Tourettes Girl!
Should I know who the Jonas Brothers are?
So, heres the thing I am really. No. I have been drinking. Thats better than saying I am drunk. Because I am not drunk, but I have been drinking. I am shit at social situations. I am hiding in my room right now, because I dont know anyone. I am so bad at meeting new people, at conversing, whatever! I just want to hide in my room and get drunk by myself. Its a whole lot safer than trying to mingle...
FUCK FUCK FUCK! BIG BROTHER STARTS NEXT WEEK! WOE IS ME!
Britney Performance Art
Britney Spears has apparently relapsed again. Is anyone surprised by this? The poor girl… She’s had such a hard life. I am not being sarcastic, and I know the majority of the world have had it much harder. I mean in terms of expectations. Everyone just kept expecting her to be the best and be what they think she is, and she just sort of, imploded underneath the pressure. Although, I...
Don't Poke The Bear
There is a really, really annoying guy at work. Like, I cannot even describe the depths and legnths of how annoying this creep is. He talks too loud, too much and he is always repeating the same thing! Lets call him, Shmobert. I had the poor fortune to be stuck working next to him tonight. It was only forty minutes, and it felt like an age. I wasnt sure if I wanted to cut my ears off or cut out...
Oh Yeah! NRL Season starts TONIGHT! Up the Sharks! →
Why the fuck is it still so hard to open chupa-chups? It has been so long since I had a lollypop, at least a year, I would say… In fact, I would say I probably have one lollypop a year, because, hey, not 12 years old anymore. I’m not so fascinated with lollies anymore - jubes and jelly lollies in particular just gross me out now. They have no flavour - they are just this weird textured...
I am so fucking sick of all these people wearing funny quote shirts. Stupid country bumpkins, move back to fucking Tasmania or wherever it is in New Zealand you are from and keep to yourself. I served a lady the other day wearing a ‘Its only illegal if you get caught’ shirt. It really, really, pissed me off. Cos its bullshit. You are trying to be all funny and stuff, but its just...
Yeh, its been awhile.
Its been quite some time since I have actually posted in this thing. I got really busy because I was house hunting. I was renting a room in some share accommodation, student style, but it was making me angry at the world. The stupid land lady moved in a thirty year old male, into a house full of students…Bear in mind I am a 21 year old female - did she really expect me to be ok with a 30 yr...
Old man pubes
I was working today, the 9am - 1pm shift. The thing about started early (or finishing late) is you get all the less than normal people. There are three homeless people who frequent my work at these times, and are certainly less than normal. One of them wears an old, rat pack style, ratty suit and always waits until his order is rung up before searching, searching for change. The second one talks,...
BEWARE! A new breed of telemarketers.
Telemarketers have changed. They are more dangerous, more invasive, and much, much scarier. I have finally discovered the new tactic in the telemarketers arsenal. The wrong person phone call. Its like when you misdial your friends number, and you get someone on the other end saying ‘Sorry, wrong number’. So you pick up the phone, and there is three seconds of silence which is always...
Here are some simple, easy suggestions for having good manners. All of these are born from actual experiences that REALLY REALLY pissed me off. 1. When you enter a store, do not stop in the doorway and look around. There are people behind you. 2. If someone asks you ‘How are you today?” or something like that, do not ignore them. This is very,very rude. At the very least, reply. It...
This is going to be uber-quick. In Australia, we are in a drought. We are on like, level 5 water restrictions. You cant wash your car, or water the garden, you are supposed to have three minute showers, and save the grey water. So why in the world did the old man across the street just throw a tub of water onto his concrete front steps?
Crazy People #1
I live in one of the most crazy cities in Australia. There are so many nutter-butters, wack-jobs, freakazoids and just plain crazies here! I am going to mention the most crazy, but I have a feeling it will take more than one post. You can decide who is the weirdest, I am deadlocked. 1. Cat Food Lady. This old, decrepit lady buys cat food. She sometimes buys other things with it, such as celery or...
I wanted you to know that I feel nothing at all Since you left me here alone...– Goodbye by misscasey

Guess what bitch - limes are $1.48 each. This story is even more annoying because I wasnt serving - I was stuck behind this halfwit, as she complained with a bewildered new staff member. It was already ten minutes past closing time and I wanted a chocolate bar for the walk home, and I got stuck behind this middle aged idiot who complained about the price of limes and lemons - then WENT TO CHECK...
Thanks for waking me up this morning, guys! Its a Sunday, I dont start work till 9:30, so I could sleep in till at least 8am. But no, you start clanging around at 7:15, wake me up. Oh, and the best part, you leave your crazy meats all over the kitchen counter and now we have ants in the kitchen. Thats just want I want in my museli, a colony of ants, because hey, trying to lose weight doesnt taste...

Funniest podcast in the world - you should listen to it. NOW!
I work in a supermarket. I have never been so sure, in my entire life, that people suck. I am just going to vent, and list all the crappy things that customers don Throwing money at me or putting it on the counter when my hand is out, waiting for it. Do you have no manners? Thrusting the money in my face before I have even begun to put through oyour order. I cant do anything with it, I am not...
