12 degrees and rain for us.

ewww a kid did that at the high school by my old work, jumped into some bushes and there was a stake in there that went through his thigh. the thought of any kind of impalement is pretty awful.

:stunned:

Kind of a random change of subject but I just saw this ad and had to share.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHzAXF6UfaA

It's so hilariously disturbing. Here's what the website (Cracked.com) had to say:

The Marketing Meeting:
"So, Mr... Lu-ci-fer, is it?"
"Just call me Your Dark Lord."
"Well, your credentials are amazing, and we would love to have you on board."
"Glad to hear it. What will I be working on first?"
"You know, we have this one account which I think you would be perfect for."

What the Fuck?
We are not entirely sure, but there is a possibility we just lost our immortal souls after watching this ad, though with us making a living off perverting young and promising minds on the Internet with dick jokes, it's really hard to tell.
The unholy commercial opens with a little girl turning the switch on her Baby Damns-You-Lot doll, unleashing a stream of rapid demonic laughter which fills the house. If you started to experience a burning sensation in your chest area, there is no need to panic, you are not having a heart attack. It's just your soul being consumed by the black flames of Hell.
The siren call of the Legions of the Damned penetrates the minds of children nearby, making them gather around their new plastic master, their innocent yet undoubtedly condemned laugh mixing with the demonic cackle, ready to take orders.
And then, the narrator decides to join in on the psychological damage. In a manner which can be very generously described as "troubling," the voice-over guy starts talking about the product, pausing only for outbursts of increasingly more maniacal laughter which, no matter how you cut it, still sounds like a desperate plea for help. Almost as if the doll was watching him.
If you want to see that clip again, no need to click above. You'll see it every time you close your eyes.

Oh man how I laughed :LOL::LOL:

Hahaha, that is sure damn creepy :LOL:


I am inviting myself over to your house for ice cream. Mmmmmmmmmmm it sounds like the best! :D

yay you get to go back to Tawhers. You have to take loads of pics! They are cute, and birds scare the crap out of me, so I like thinking they are cute instead.
Don't know about that Oyster Catcher though....

The ice cream is good indeed. The wine gums are a bit hard at first though, but chewing on them for a while should make it last longer.

It doesn't look like the weather will be the best for taking photos this weekend at Tawh :erm:

The oyster catchers do look a bit more intimidating, but they are harmless. The one nesting just squaked at us for being by its nest. Then later when we were sitting on the beach after our swim, it was just wandering around, poking its beak in the sand for food :happy:

Harmless? But look at their MASSIVE beak! Surely that could do some serious damage. When I was 12 my friend and I were up at Ruakaka, walking along the beach, and we must have got too close to some Oystercatchers nests or something without realising it, because they all started dive bombing us and we had to run away. :facepalm:

Gutted that it's not good picture taking weather :(

I've just spent two hours at the specialist having local anaesthetic injections in my jaw joints. Bleughhhhh. But the good news is it doesn't hurt anymore! Since I can't feel my face. :awesome:

We were on the rocks right by its nest and it didn't attack us, just squaked. It was just the one though, so maybe not enough for effective dive bombing, but maybe they are more likely to do that when the chicks are out.

Oh, that must have left a few prick holes. What about when it wears off though?

Tacticalkat
02-12-2009, 01:44 AM
If the pain goes away they can tell whether it's muscular or coming from the joint itself, and sometimes just the local is enough to trick the nerves into stop putting out signals. Did some other adjustments too, so fingers crossed!

Hahah I'm sure one of those birds could dive bomb wit hthe best of them, think we were just on their turf and they wanted us gone!

Michelle
02-12-2009, 02:25 AM
Oh cool, all the best with the pain staying away then!

Yeah, those birds were probably having a really territorial day :chuckle:

How's your day going?

Michelle

Oh dear, hopefully that fear will continue to decline then ;)

My day has been mostly boring with looking for articles for my dreaded assignment and reading them. A friend has been entertaining me though by sending me photos of stuffed birds (as she is at the museum, lol) and quizzing me on what they are. I got them all right of course :LOL:

Bahahhahaha that is awesome! Whenever I see random animals now I always think of you, haha "Michelle would know what this is....." :)

I do love the stuffed things at the museum. Please tell me that they died on their own and then got stuffed though? They didn't have to gas them like the bugs did they?:unsure:

Michelle
02-12-2009, 03:27 AM
Na, they wouldn't have had to gas them like the insects. I'm guessing that a majority should have been collected from dying of natural causes, but back in the old days people would hunt for trophies to add to their collection without knowing they were helping their extinction :( Then they were eventually given to museums...

Tacticalkat
02-12-2009, 03:33 AM
Phew, I was hoping so. My sister in law donated a bird that way, they had a tui that flew into their window and died so they put it in the freezer and gave it to the museum.

But :vomit: at the trophies!

Michelle
02-12-2009, 03:39 AM
Oh that's nice of them, poor tui though. Taxidermy would be quite a fidly job. It's impressive though that they can preserve them so well and life-like.

Tacticalkat
02-12-2009, 03:59 AM
yeah, sad but also kind of nice it didn't get wasted. I don't even want to think about how they do taxidermy! :stunned:

Oh, that's.... good? :stunned::LOL:

Ew, there's some weird taxidermy "sculptures" somewhere where the creator has taken two taxidermy animals and sown them together and stuff. Like a squirrel body with a fish head and stuff. They're really creepy :stunned:

Bah, I have this weird painful spot on one eyebrow, where if I touch it even really really lightly, it sends a shooting pain through my head. My doctor said the headaches I've also been having are tension headaches, but I really don't know how to get rid of this painful eyebrow spot. Its like even if my clothes brush over it while I'm dressing, it makes my head hurt :(

Ew, interspecies taxidermy! Super creepy!

Is it like a follicle on your eyebrow? They really hurt, or maybe is it a nerve from your tension headaches?
Tension headaches suck, but I recommend massage for them, usually work pretty well.

Headaches in general can just gtfo for all I care, they are the worst kind of pain and they suck! Especially because I get them a lot from my whacked out jaw, and everyone just assumes I have a hangover...... if only! haha.

Do you grind your teeth, or clench? Because that can be a major for tension headaches!

I've got a really bad cold. :indiff: I hate having them in summer, cos the things I like to do in winter when I've got a cold - hot bath, hot drinks, etc - are really unappealing.

That really sucks. There's a lot going round, loads of chest infections and nasty colds, tis the 'change of season' I think.
LOL I hate when people blame things on the change of season but I actually think it's to blame this time, it can't seem to make up it's mind whether to rain or be hot.

Ice blocks might help? At least you will hopefully sweat it out in the heat!:)
Take it easy!

_Ed_
03-12-2009, 03:50 AM
I'm in the slightly too enthusiastic air conditioning of work at the moment! But I've got my walk up to Ponsonby a bit later.

Yeah it probably is the change of season. Either that or the party bus!

How's your day been?

Tacticalkat
03-12-2009, 04:01 AM
Ohhh I forgot about that, It probably was the party bus! Haha all those grotty germs mingling....

I'm averagely average!

Went to work this morning and made it til about 11 am when my boss told me I looked like I had had botox and should go home....

So I did. And have called in for tomorrow, so I can go back to the specialist for some more twiddling so that hopefully by the weekend I'll be able to eat through something more than a straw! :)

So I have been chilling, reading trusty Harry Potter. I think I've been reading him for weeks, and still only up to the Goblet of Fire.

Apart from your cold, how's your day going?

_Ed_
03-12-2009, 04:16 AM
Sounds like home is the place to be until everything's all 100% again. :yesey: Hope the specialist can improve things tomorrow.

My day's been OK. I want this humid weather to go away though!

Tacticalkat
03-12-2009, 04:24 AM
Yeah it's all good, will get there in the end!

I can't wait for proper summer!

I dunno, I thought maybe it could be an ingrown hair or something but nothing seems amiss. :erm:
Yeah my doctor said my neck was really tight so I need to get it massaged or something. Maybe when I go over to my dad's next I'll convince him to give me one :happy: Now I have an excuse to get massages! Yay! :LOL: Kind of strange to get tension headaches during the holidays though, isn't it?

Yeah I always find the same happens to me, I get through all the exams, all the stressy stuff and then a week later start getting the headaches. (like now!)
I almost think that maybe your body gets you through the stress while you need it and then after it's gone and you start to relax it starts having a melt down at all the tight wound up points.

Wheatie bags are your friend! And anyone and evrryone who will massage you!

My brother's new girlfriend is my favourite person in the world right now. Not only is she really lovely and fun, she also wants to study as a masseuse, and LOVES giving massages, so every time she comes over she gives me one. And she's really good! I'm in love! :D

Yeah I like Goblet of Fire too, it's after this one that I have to bring tissues with me when I read them though....:supersad:

I was invited to a BBQ but didn't go because it was raining. I also picked up my last English assignment- I did not too well on the multimedia part, but really well on the screenplay. Which is good because I knew my multimedia was lame anyway.

It was my Dad's birthday today so we had the big family dinner, with a couple of family friends around as well, and my Mum did a pass the parcel.:facepalm:
It was actually really fun, because it was so unexpected, and had fun $2 shop prizes in it. Haha I got a fake finger that when you stick it on your finger the end lights up like ET's finger!! So I spent the night pointing it at everyone doing my best (bad) Et impression! It was a fun night, and then my brother's girlfriend just gave me an hour long massage.... bliss!!

I've got a Christmas in the Garden tomorrow night, my sister in laws family are all in the show biz, singers and musicians and such so they have a big party every year where loads of people get drunk and sing carols on the lawn. Tis fun! But will probably be in the lounge this year!

I'll probably just waste the rest of the weekend on facebook! :)

Strawberry Fare - think I will have duck there again!

My sister was telling me how they went out to have a look and that they were cutting the driver out and they thought he was dead too but then he started moving. I think it's bad enough seeing the cars after people have been cut out of them, let alone seeing it happen! Really does scare me the idea of getting stuck in a car after an accident.

Edit: Where is Warkworth anyway?

Nasty nasty business. And Warkwarth is not somewhere that you want to be badly wounded, because the hospital they bring you to is North Shore, which is far too far away.

i really don't understand guns. one of my ex flatmates wanted to keep guns in our old flat and i was quite uncomfortable about it. i was cooking steak loudly in the kitchen when the police officer came to interview him for his firearm licence and thankfully moved out not long after.

read a horrible story about a woman being raped and shot in the face by a cop and throwing her body in a ditch. she managed to crawl out and get help.

I agree with Rich on this one, how the hell do they get into the army and stuff in the first place? I thought they had to pass psych tests.

Though I suppose there are a lot of scary people out there who can pass those kind of things.

It was my Dad's birthday today so we had the big family dinner, with a couple of family friends around as well, and my Mum did a pass the parcel.:facepalm:
It was actually really fun, because it was so unexpected, and had fun $2 shop prizes in it. Haha I got a fake finger that when you stick it on your finger the end lights up like ET's finger!! So I spent the night pointing it at everyone doing my best (bad) Et impression! It was a fun night, and then my brother's girlfriend just gave me an hour long massage.... bliss!!

Went to party during the day today and had heaps of good food. We were grossed out though because one of the people who's birthday it was got a Zen garden as a gift, and there was like a little wooden bench ornament that came with the set. Some friends and I were playing with the garden and then someone was like 'ew this smells' about the wooden thing, so we all sniffed it and it reeked. Then my friend had a look at it and she was like 'uh...guys?'. It turned out that what we thought was like sprayed-on fake lichen was actually mould :stunned: And we had touched and smelt it! SO GROSS.

Then when I got home I felt kinda sick. I'm a little worried- I've been having headaches quite a bit recently as I've said before, and she had asked me when I was there if I was having any nausea. She also asked if it hurt my head to lean forward, and it didn't, but yesterday I did and it hurt. The sore spot still hasn't gone away either.

I wasn't really, but it's a combination of factors - this place sounds/looks pretty good, and my Mum's decided to retire at the end of the year, so I'd be a bit of a burden if I stayed and would probably pay board anyway.

Woaaaaaah! Exciting!! I'm not really too up on the play with rent prices but I know that two of my mates in the city pay loads more than that so that sounds pretty good!

It's a five double-room place. My only concern is I hope it's not four couples. :erm: I know there's one couple, and they're looking for people to fill the other four rooms.

No reply, but also (my resistance to snooping came to an end) no Facebook activity since the day before I asked. Could have gone away somewhere on holiday, for all I know.

Or maybe she doesn't have internet access outside of uni! I'm in for a long wait in that case. :LOL: Killing me. Seriously.

Headaches are lame, and the thing to beat them is knowing why you are having them, which can be tricky but is a case of ruling things out. Do you get stuffy blocked noses a lot? Could be sinus related, or it might be your eyes, I got loads of eye headaches and never realised until I got glasses that they were from my eyes!
Or if you grind your teeth when sleeping that is a major cause of them, and actually teeth in general.

Or the dreaded stress is a big cause, but either way get along to the docs and find out what's going on!! Especially find out what that spot is too!!!!

Five rooms sounds mint! My ex lived with four couples, and I stayed there a lot and even being part of a couple it was quite bad, we found that if the other couples were arguing we would end up arguing too, ugh and just being around that many couples is just sickening!

About the girl, all I have to say is : :(

I guess it's a good thing that they realise bad things have happened which maybe they had a hand in (I don't know what happened) so I guess the only consolation is that they know that they maybe went about things wrong or whatever, hopefully they can also come to realise that the way for you to heal is to move on and let it lie.

Sorry guys, I could have sworn when I typed it all out that I said I'd been to the doctor. That's what the 'she' I was referring to was :LOL: She said that if I hurt when I lent forwards then it could be sinuses. Not sure what the sore spot is all about though. Might go back next week or week after. Also how sad is it that as I was typing this I originally put 'the Doctor', as in the last Time Lord :facepalm: :LOL:

Aw it's kind of nice that she apologised (because I don't know about anyone else but my mum would be far too stubborn to ever admit to being a less-than-stellar parent on occasions) but yeah, I can imagine it would also be totally awkward. Hopefully like Kat said, she will realise that its in the past now and the only thing to do is use the experience to create a better future! :happy:

What? Awww man you get my hope up and then shoot me down! Boooo!

My day was the total shizzle, in fact yesterday and today rocked so much! Yesterday I got to do an oseophagogastectomy which is removing the oesophagus and then basically just reattaching it to the stomach with some jejunum, but you go in through the side so we have to put a speical tube in the trachea that lets us deflate one of the lungs so the surgeon can get in, and it's really super technical and we don't do them often so that was awesome.

The today I did another massive 8 hour case called a radical cystoprostatectomy, formation of neo bladder, which means they remove the bladder and then make a new one using part of the bowel.

How incredible is that??!! And I rocked and wasn't spazzy or clumsy for once in my life, it was so much win.

the only one i remember will be completely irrelevant which is number 12 with regards to unique identifiers as i always remember that from IRD.

guessing 5: storage and security, 6: access 10. limits of use and 11. disclosure are the most important ones. must remember this.

If anyone's planning on driving between Dannevirke and Woodville tonight, I have to warn you that you'll have 16km of 30cm-deep offal to contend with.

Someone was driving a truck full of it, and in the words of the witness they interviewed for the news tonight, he "spilled his load all the way down the highway."

Lovely stuff.

thanks for the good luck...i really don't care about the exam, bar the possible money i'd have to pay my employer back if i fail. you have to get 50% in the exam to pass. i'm hoping the fact i do all this stuff at work everyday i'll be okay at it...

I think beer at Shadows might be in order. Michelle? Kitty? EDIT: Oh no, it's closed until Jan 5. :(

And I'm sure you lasted longer than I would have! How's your day going?

:( Surely there'll be somewhere else we can go then.


My day was the total shizzle, in fact yesterday and today rocked so much! Yesterday I got to do an oseophagogastectomy which is removing the oesophagus and then basically just reattaching it to the stomach with some jejunum, but you go in through the side so we have to put a speical tube in the trachea that lets us deflate one of the lungs so the surgeon can get in, and it's really super technical and we don't do them often so that was awesome.

The today I did another massive 8 hour case called a radical cystoprostatectomy, formation of neo bladder, which means they remove the bladder and then make a new one using part of the bowel.

How incredible is that??!! And I rocked and wasn't spazzy or clumsy for once in my life, it was so much win.

That's awesome, glad you enjoyed it so much! :)

Anchovies are controversial, aren't they? No one's undecided about them.

Have to say I'm a fan of them.

I haven't ever tried them :erm: I don't think I would like them though since they are so salty which sounds like olives and I'm not a fan of them.

That sounds like good reasoning, but I don't like olives and do like anchovies. :unsure:

Actually it turns out I was wrong about what they were (I've never actually seen them before). They're not goldfish at all! I can't remember what she said they were, but they lurk down the bottom of the tank and wait until the food gets down there before they eat it. It was the whole not going up to eat the food thing that had me worried!

Congrats Jo, well done! I was telling the others tonight that I had to learn the same privacy act stuff as you for my job and I have forgotten most of it too!

And I'm not sure if you got my message through Rich about going to the Netherlands gig but it went something like "tell her to get the fuck there!!!!"

I think the girl in the first photo is Eric Hutchenson who does that song 'I'm Yours', and I think I can see the construction worker from The Village People in one- was there a construction worker in that group? :erm: :LOL:

I spent my day pawning off old items for money. The unemployment situation is getting ridiculous now, with both myself and my mum between jobs. Today we were literally on the last amounts of food- there was no bread, milk, potatoes... the cupboards were bare. So we sold off an old amplifier and golf set at Cash Converters. I really hope my mum can get some employment soon because I think bills need paying. And the sooner I get a job, the sooner I can move out!

Speaking of moving out, I was SO ANNOYED today because my mum wants to sell my old saxophone, which is fine since I don't play it anymore, but at last negotiation I was supposed to have all the money from a sale as "holiday money" while not being employed. But now that times are tough, my mum wants all the money if we do sell it, and won't pay me back later when she gets a job. Thats about $500 that I was going to put towards flatting gone. :(

Hahah, it is just like that! Most of the trial of forceps babies have supermassive cone heads! And it's all squishy and jelly like.

Lame about having to go into work, did I read on another thread that it's a stomach thing?
yeah i dunno. i really stuffed my core at a swiss ball class on tuesday and then just yesterday walking to court my tummy was really tender, i was so clammy and i felt really nauseous. don't feel the best this morning either so gonna bus to work.

the exam went well, they force you to take 10 minutes at the start to read the exam without writing anything. so lame. i left just over an hour in. it was so nonspecific! so i could just ramble about things i did know about. been such a hot day.

Congrats, glad it went well! :D


I really enjoyed tonight. :happy: What was with that waiter though? When Kat asked for a wine, he goes "do you want a bottle?" What the fuck?

Yeah, that waiter seemed a bit dodge :erm:

I'm gonna be in Auckland in March y'all!

:awesome:

As requested, pictures from party bus. Still none with me wearing the head, sorry.

Epically awesome weather again today. Must have been great for Michelle's trip to Tawh. :happy:

Yup, the weather was good up there. The birds guarding nests were being really protective so I think I got some good photos of them and a little video :happy:

Erm...who?

:erm: Hmm. My dad just heard the Tahuna Breaks cd the other day and liked it so wants us to look for it at JB-hifi him. I thought it almost sounded like a NZ band name, didn't think I'd be right though :LOL:

The funny thing is that we only played two games :LOL: It just took us a long time to get all the pieces. Often the easy questions happened to fall on not point scoring places :rolleyes::LOL:

I don't know whats going on for Christmas shopping this year. I'm getting my family something probably, and my friends' birthday is on the 14th so I might get her something small. A bit apprehensive about Christmas Day though because of the whole no-money thing, so I guess we won't be having a big lunch like usual which will be a little strange. Doesn't feel like Christmas season yet though am I right?

He's kind of funny, eh? Doesn't really look like any other type of bear. He looks kinda like a cross between a bear and an ape :erm:

Anyone excited about Christmas? I watched most of Love Actually earlier. That movie is kind of a so-so film for me, but heaps of people seem to love it.
I'm not really looking forward to Christmas so much this year. I know that sounds so grinchy but at least at my Mum's I think it won't be so great. My sister is coming over, so that's yay, but we still have no money. It'll probably be baked beans on toast for Christmas dinner. And its not very fun putting up a Christmas tree by yourself. I'm the kind of person who likes routine tradition on Christmas, so the whole 'its just another day' thing doesn't go down too well with me. I know I shouldn't complain because there's people out there far worse off than me, but its still a bit of a bummer. I can see why they say this holiday season is the hardest time of the year. Still, there's some Christmassy stuff to look forward to too :happy:. Like watching my DVD and the nice weather :happy:.

But that doesn't mean you have no right to complain and feel a bit down when you're going through a rough patch.

I hope the company and conversation you get on the day makes up for the absence of other things and you still have an awesome day. If it's nice weather on Christmas Day you should go to the beach for a picnic or something. :)

And hopefully you might have something to celebrate on the jobs front in the near future.

I really like Love Actually, it brings out all these emotions in me, it's right up there with Notting Hill. :awesome:

I'm semi excited about Christmas, we haven't got a tree or anything yet and I haven't got half the stuff I need, but I am just buying everyone something smallish this year. Trainee Wages suck!

I think you have every right to feel a bit grinchy, I get waht you say about the traditions, I feel the same way, either we do the whole thing properly or it doesn't work. Like Rich says hopefully you can all enjoy each other's company, and maybe doing something completely different might make it feel less strange having a different sort of day?

Every Christmas something major usually goes wrong in my house, for years after we got here it would be my parents having a massive fight and storming out, and the year before last it was my dog's fault!
Mum had cooked an amazing 5 kg turkey, with bacon and sausages, and had just pulled it out of the oven, turned her back for one second and my naughty giant hunterway stood up and STOLE the turkey!!
He grabbed it and took it out into the garden!!!!'
Obviously there was no getting it back, hahaha so that was an interesting one..........

Jobs are hard all round at the moment! Keep looking and hopefully lots of people quit around this time when they don't get the leave they want and places will start hiring!

Lame on both counts, get your hottie and some nurofen and watch your favourite dvd, and I usually find having a fat old cry makes things a bit better!
Oh and chocloate. Lots of chocolate!

I don't know what it means yet. There are still two nests at the moment. But yeah, it's obviously not good for the birds (and for the project), the loss of eggs each season seems to be on the increase.

Anyway, to take my mind off things, I started making a design for the moa t-shirts for those keen on getting one. So here is my initial design, I just chose the colour blue for now since we were undecided and it's a neutral colour. Let me know what you think and any other ideas.

I tried one muse in a box, but it looked wierd and wasn't sure where to put it. I put it under the colar on the back, but it kind on looked over crowded for some reason. I fiddle some more later to see if I can fit it in better. But at least there is muse in the board address, unless we have muse in a box there instead... And yeah, we'll be able to put it on whatever style t-shirt or singlet we want, as long as printers have them I guess.

I found this on a t-shirt site which i thought was pretty cool, out of stock though.

Thought so, I'll stick to paying on the day then.


Good luck with your cat! Hope it's a simple (and cheap!) fix for her!


It was an infection (most likely from fighting as usual :rolleyes:). They call it cat acne when it is around the mouth like that, she had some smaller lumps under the chin too. So just an injection of long-lasting antibiotics and an anti-inflammatory so we won't have to try giving her pills everyday. So yeah, we got the simple part, but still not that cheap, oh well.

There's a whole big line of them waiting outside.

As well as a long line of people. In 2007 I had to go to the back street behind Real Groovy, but in 2008 it wasn't so bad, probably because I went a bit earlier.

Aww your poor cat! Mine did that, got into a fight and got really sick with an infection! And the vet is so expensive!!!!
Hopefully the shot will be enough to sort her out!

Ha and I am such a twit, I looked at the design again, I totally read the MOA on the front as 'MUSE' and was wondering why we were having that on the front, haha, but when I looked the second time i realised it actually says moa, it made a lot more sense! :facepalm:

In response to earlier discussion, I'm not really 'feeling' Christmas at this stage either. It has seemed like a bit of a hassle so far.

the weather has really thrown me, usually december is all about the hot summer days and the smell of cut grass that just makes you feel so christmassy and so far its all been about the rain.

Every Christmas something major usually goes wrong in my house, for years after we got here it would be my parents having a massive fight and storming out, and the year before last it was my dog's fault!
Mum had cooked an amazing 5 kg turkey, with bacon and sausages, and had just pulled it out of the oven, turned her back for one second and my naughty giant hunterway stood up and STOLE the turkey!!
He grabbed it and took it out into the garden!!!!'
Obviously there was no getting it back, hahaha so that was an interesting one..........

Jobs are hard all round at the moment! Keep looking and hopefully lots of people quit around this time when they don't get the leave they want and places will start hiring!

Lame on both counts, get your hottie and some nurofen and watch your favourite dvd, and I usually find having a fat old cry makes things a bit better!
Oh and chocloate. Lots of chocolate!
I really hope things start getting easier for you, you have had your share now!

Thanks Kat. Oh no, that sounds like a right mess with the dog eating the turkey! Especially after so much effort was put in. I bet he was denied affection for quite some time after that :LOL:
Yeah I'm kind of hoping that people will quit in the New Year and I'll be able to steal in and take their jobs muhahaha!
I took panadol and had my hot water bottle which helped heaps. Moped to a friend on MSN and listened to some emotional slow music too :LOL:


Are we still going to do Muse in a box or something so we aren't infringing on Copyright?:)

The turkey eating dog was about 30 kgs at the time, and managed to get through half of the turkey before we were able to get it off him!!
He looked pregnant, his stomach was so swollen and distended, but my god was he pleased with himself!

What's muse in a box? :erm:
Aw cute dog! His markings are very cute- little white legs :LOL:

It was my friend's birthday today :happy: I went over there and we played Trivial Pursuit again :LOL: You can download new categories from online so it has a dangerous level of replay-ability :LOL: Tomorrow we are all going to pub quiz :happy:

And the other day at a party, there was a spider in my hair! :eek: I was playing with my hair and felt something in it, so I grabbed it and pulled it out to have a look, and it wiggled! I dropped it on the floor and then proceeded to tell people around me in order to ease the shock.

Yeah, silly cats and their fighting. When we got home my sister called and said her cat had a sore leg which was pretty much the same thing. A few years ago my cat was limping really bad, thought it was broken or sprained, but no just got bitten in a fight :rolleyes:

Oh right, haha :LOL: I might do some more tinkering with it soon to give you guys more options to choose from.

It does that! Can't believe it's next week.

Same here. Only 10 days til xmas and one month til BDO! :stunned::D

Oh, muse in a box is well, what it sounds like. I thought maybe we would have that on the t-shirts instead of copying the MUSE logo, just in case of all that copyright infringement crap :rolleyes:

Sounds like you have been having fun and yay for pub quiz!

Spiders and insects in your hair is always annoying, you never know what your going to pull out :LOL:

Hahah, it's funny to hear you say that it's all the warm stuff that makes you feel Christmassy, because my first 11 christmases were cold, wet and grey.
And now that I have been here longer than England you would think I'd be used to Christmas here, but it still doesn't feel quite like Christmas even after all this time, I think it must be tied up with the childhood nostalgia!
But I still love Christmas here, it's just different! :)

Oh mate that dog was in the dog house A LOT, he was a kleptomaniac, wouls steal things and bury them in the garden. (my glasses, my brother's car keys, mum's rolling pin, dad's mug..... a whole roll of glad wrap which he ate, and then his poos came out all shrink wrapped!:D)

Ew surprise bugs are the worst!!!!!
I really must try this trivial pursuit!!

However, we are going from Rotorua...

Still a bit of a rip, I guess :(

he's put up with me for the last 3 years!

ugh work...the phone wouldn't stop ringing, this property manager kept calling me and pissing me off asking me for a new dishwasher despite me telling her and our mutual customer that there was no claim, all the crazies came out of the woodwork and thought they'd come in...and everyone who came in just seemed to be absolutely devoid of any christmas spirit. seems that even in the insurance industry people are cunts to you at christmas time. thought i got out of that one when i left the retail sector.

and with my manager being on sick leave for four weeks it seems that every second inquiry or claim needs to be referred to a manager and i ain't got one! my old manager has been putting up with some of my inquiries and comes and authorises our payments but still around christmas when everyone is being SO demanding, its frustrating.

I like the back of the second one. I think just having that as the front and a plain back would be cool. Or the same Muse-Moa design on the front, and the 'united states of Moatearoa' on the back :happy:
