Stuff from today

June 25, 2009 at 5:03 pm (Uncategorized)

Hey Hey!

some randomness is in order today i think. it will be the tales of my travel to the shops this morning. quick observation: so far i have only written on this blog when I’ve had coffee, coincidence? ūüėõ

so, yeah, i went to the shops, woohoo! watch out, i left the house. i needed to buy a new heater because the motor in the other one was burning out, it isn’t a nice smell let me tell you! plus i had to drop my sister at work. So we went, after i¬†decided an apple was enough for breakfast.¬†

at the shops i was amused to find the water was back in the fountainy water feature thing. it had been off because of water restrictions. it was a bit dangerous and¬†several unsuccessful attempts were made to fence it off. the children, and no doubt late nite skaters and assorted other hoodlums, had plenty of fun in that empty fountain. sadly, the dams have technically reached 70% or whatever and they no longer have their play ground ūüė¶

my second discovery was the existence of a Leyland brothers DVD. for those who don’t know (and i barely know myself) they are some guys who had a show going around Australia and filming it to show audience places to go, i guess its kinda like a cross between Malcolm Douglas and getaway. anyway, they were a bit laughable from what i understand. and now¬†they have a DVD selling in a major retailer ūüėĮ i really would love to know who buys some of this stuff.

but my quest was for a heater. now you would think, being winter, various stores would stock up on them for all the people who go to pull out their heater and find it has died (who, me?) but no. i went¬† to 3 different stores and they all had¬†the tiniest little section tucked away for them.¬†heaters! none! in winter! are they all crazy! i¬†didnt want to be¬†cold so i bought¬†one that seemed the best. i still havent¬†tried it yet. i will need to know later…¬†

So,¬†I had mild success! i had a heater! unfortunately i also had to carry it. those new environmentally friendly bags have such horrible handles! they dig into your hand as soon as you get them! good for the environment and all blah blah bla, but they need to fix that somehow ūüė° It must have been about this time i began to look¬†painfully awkward¬†to other shoppers. i also had my lunch, bought from my lovely sister (who made a good coffee!), bread and I had to deal with¬†my handbag falling off my shoulder approximately every¬†3 seconds! there was no doubt it would only be a matter of time before something fell to the ground. there was only one way to avoid this. Home time!

the last beautiful thing i saw was as i drove home. I was on the 80km stretch behind a bus doing 70, it didn’t bother me because i wasn’t in a rush. so i follow along thinking ‘typical bus, cant make the speed limit, oh well, nothing i can do to make it faster’, when it merges into the faster lane. it turned out it was¬†the quite new looking Suzuki something or¬†other that was holding it up. a new car, holding up a bus,¬†isn’t that just crazy.

so that was my¬†morning ūüôā now i must go and do, other things, whatever they are, meh

thanks for reading!

Blog: Day 2

June 22, 2009 at 3:02 pm (Uncategorized)

Here we are, Day 2,¬†I better write something to make this a routine, or it will be lost and forgotten ūüė• so, here¬†I go!

I already have a few drafts that aren’t¬†ready to be posted yet, and I’m slowly learning what all the little tabs on here mean. I’m also slowly coming to realise how¬†many ways a blog can be used.¬†I will have to be careful or¬†I will try to do it all at once and it just won’t work.

So, a few things that are on my mind; coffee is wonderful. I try to keep off it cos¬†it messes with my Tourettes but it is lovely stuff. It’s my day off so¬†I¬†allowed myself a cup this morning, mmm. My sister¬†can tell when I’ve had coffee, I’m jittery and more likely to talk, or type, like¬†I am now.¬†I can feel the energy surging through my body, especially round the shoulders,¬†I feel like flinging my arms around, dancing, singing, just moving. And I will, thanks to my abnormality ūüôā

It’s times like this¬†I hate the¬†way the world is set up.¬†Sure¬†I could go dancing down the street¬†but I would be so embarrassed later, I beat myself up over stuff like that. And where’s the fun if no-one will do it with me?

Anyway,¬†I can’t allow myself to have caffeine or alcohol or get too excited because I will hit myself, or even worse, some one¬†else. It is a disturbing new development from the last few months. The only other person¬†I used to hit was my ex, and sometimes his brother, but since they have been away travelling I have hit at least 2 others! That’s 2 more than I would like!

I wish¬†I could find¬†a sociological perspective on Tourettes and other movement ‘disorders’.¬†I have no¬†option but to take my tablet (which fortunately¬†works for me but unfortunately not everyone) and live my life in the same emotional state¬†or risk the dreaded twitch. The few opportunities¬†I get to get out of this routine are few and far between.¬†I realise many people may feel like this in their lives, but for me the stakes are higher.

Should¬†I love it, because it makes me unique? Or should¬†I hate it? Is there some underlying desire for attention¬†I should be ashamed of? All¬†I can be sure of it that¬†I will have to live¬†with it ’til¬†I die,¬†¬†so there is no point being too upset.¬†I just hope¬†I¬†don’t get osteoporosis, that could be bad.

Wow, so, there we are, my lament over my ‘condition’,¬†I could talk about the normal and abnormal and much more, but¬†I think this is long enough. Thanks for reading ūüôā

How are you? I hope you are well.¬† I¬†hope you like my blog ūüôā¬†

I should probably let you know what I want to do with this thing. Well, i want to write all those thoughts that come to me that i find it hard to bring up with people. i want to make little obsevations here and there. but i still want to be a little interesting at least. at the moment that is. I may change my mind, you hear that internet, i change my mind!  

meh, i may change what i want to do with this blog, i’m only learning so lets see where this goes shall we ūüôā i hope, look, my attention to¬†capital letters is already gone, oh well.
