2 for 50

It just so happens that the week safeway bring out 2 bottles of alcohol for $50, i actually have the money to buy them. So i got a bottle of smirnoff...Ace! Its a good thing im an easy drunk cos the bottle will last prolly over a month. Last night, being thursday, was time to go out. I dont usually go out thursdays because i have to work in the morning, but last night i really couldnt care less. So i rocks up at steves about 7:30, to find that i had alot of catching up to do. I caught up pretty quick and before i knew it i was playing singstar...yes, iv lowered my standards a fair bit. I got beaten by Kate about 6 times and by steves bro about 10 times, so quite clearly my time was up. Anyway, we decided to go to the pub but left it way too late and we all ended up standing in a line that moved a foot an hour. Meh, what can you do. We really acomplished nothing at all. Everyone is working tonite, and im working tomoro so nothing is planned. Tomoro night though, im heading up to Narre Warren to visit me old mayte leon who i havent caught up with in about 3 months. Because he lives about 1km from the club Blitz, we is gonna head over there after a decent amount of pre drinks a his and his missus place. Should be good fun, might make an effort to pick up, but my opinion my change once i start drinking, we'll see...

Im bored so ill leave you with this

In Memory...

Well, this week is really a week i could have lived without. I had tafe all week, pulling down that motor, which i got back together and it actually started. But still, all the theory i had to do was not something that i'd want to do again. And then thursday!!

Possibly the worst day that iv had in a while. I left for tafe on thusday and part way through the day i got a call from mum. She told me that she had Kellie (our dog) put down. I didnt know what to say. I didnt know whether to run out of the workshop and cry, or to put on an act, and carry out my day. I put on the act. I got home, gave mum a hug and just cried, im still crying while writing this, i cant stop. Even though kellie was sick, and we knew in the back of our minds that it could come to this, i didnt expect it so soon. I still expect her to come and greet me at the door when i get home from work, to bark when the door bell rings. Its almost strange not having to expect these things when you've lived with it for so long. Mum decided to bury her outside, where she can still be near us, and where we can still be near her. She had a good life though, i told mum. We did all we could for her, its not as if we didnt try. It just wasnt fair on her, to keep having to go to the vet, and keep recovering, then suffering. It takes a strong person to make such a hard decision, and it was the right one. Ultimately, we are all in agreeance that we have no more pets. It just puts enormous strain on you, and your emotions when you are faced with something like this. The thought of not being able to give her a big hug, leaves a huge lump in my throat...

A quote from me: No one is ever forgotten if there is always someone there to remember them

To Kellie: Sleep well 'bubba', i miss you soo much xoxoxoxo

still crying.... :(

Monday, bloody monday!

Liss, i didnt actually think you still read this? Well obviously you must cos you asked me why i said sorry. Im pretty sure it was when shannan found out that i said i think she's hot. I was talking to shaz and said something like "damn you", directed towards you, and you got angry. So i said the next day that i was sorry cos i thought you were still angry. Pretty sure thats what it was about anwway. Miss you too xoxox

Anyway back to it. What a load of crap international pirate day is. Apart from the fact that no one even talks like a pirate, its a stupid idea anyway! However...it is a really good excuse to go out and have $10 chicken parmas and 2 pots of beer! Good parma! And a really good excuse to drink more than you'd like to lol. I think monday night was the most eventful monday night i'v ever had. It's a good thing i have tafe this week otherwise i would have been and hour and a half late for work this morning. I couldnt afford to slack off at tafe anyway. I started a new subject on monday morning, i have to fully dismantle a motor, measure everything, then put it back together and make sure it works. Sounds easy? hell no! I started monday, and im still measuring parts. i only get 3 days to do it in. Should have it back together tomoro, late tomoro i'd say. Monday night i was talking to shannan, the shaz that i know, i have to say that im a bit relieved that she likes her present. As guys will tell you, its hard to buy stuff, especially jewelerry for a girl. i forgot to ask her about the picutre of me and her i sent. For those who didnt know, i sent her an old pic of us two, of way back in 1990, we were on our way to a banana's and pyjamas concert, We had matching jumpers, jeans and even shoes on...cmon, iv known her since i was like born so i have an excuse. Believe it or not, she used to beat me up back in the day lol haha, i got her back though before she left for singapore...on that note im leaving!!!

Home grown

Well its saturday night and a really should be out, doing stuff, but, i cant be F***** cos there is nothing 'good', good meaning that there is nothing worth getting off my ass for. This is where im at a disadvantage due to the lack of girlfriendness. My fault though, i think im waiting for some very good looking young woman to come up and say "hey your hot, lets go out sometime"...not gonna happen. The fact is that if you ever want good things to happen, then you have to put in the effort, and you will be rewarded. Im lacking effort. Its been said before in previous posts that i can sit there half a night and look at a really beautiful girl with a smile that makes you melt (eww soppiness), but never actually do anything about it. Stupid shyness. It's still there even when im drinking. God dammit, ima gonna go work on my car for a bit! Wait no im not, its raining too heavy and i aint going out there in a wifebeater! Well maybe i will a bit later. No, ima gonna go now!

Hope my sister is having fun in singapore at shannan's birthday, while im here in shitass australia! Thought for the moment: Cant wait to finish my apprenticeship, then i can leave australia and travel. imagine waking up everyday and not knowing what your day holds! Would be great!!

Quote of the day: "Better never to have met you in my dream than to wake and reach for hands that are not there"

Rare opportunity

Its qutie rare that dad forgets to turn off the computer, so when the opportuity arises that he actually forgets to switch it off, i jumped at it. So caught up in the fact that they are going to the pub, he forgot. So i dropped both the olds at the pub, and potted back home to waste my night on the net. Not really, im gonna get out the dance mat a bit later on, perhaps when i finish this blog, and try to get past the dredded 'level 7' that im stuck on. Unfortunately, without breaking myself, i cant jump around as fast as the moves come up on screen. So in the meantime, i'll wait till someone comes on msn, maybe melissa will be on soon as she usually is, and we'll have a good chat; haven't had one in a while. I dont know about anyone else, but i love to sit down and have a good yarn to someone, as sean adn erin would know. I often trap them into talking for hours.
I've said in a few posts that i have and unusual amount of money sitting around. Most of the time after i get paid, money goes faster than you can say "matt damon"! Think about it, i pay $70 for my car loan, around $70 petrol, $40 for my tool account. Thats alot of expenditure for each week, and for some reason, by the time it gets back to monday, monday being my pay day, i still have well over $100 left in my bank, so money keeps building up. Apart from the weeks that insurance comes out, thats a killer. So i'v decided that the money that is left over on a monday morning, i will transfer over to my awardsaver account, to prevent me from spending it on shit. It probably helps that i really cut down on my going out aswel. Anyway, off to play dancemat by myself...so no-one can give me shit....

Insert title here

I found this while poking around on the net, thought it was a bit interesting.

You are driving along in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop, and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there couldonly be one passenger in your car?
Think before you continue reading...




..........................This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of ajob application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first; Or, you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back.
However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble comingup with his answer. He simply answered: "I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams."


As you can tell, I'm bored, but it makes sense

Long time no post

Its been a while between posts, due to the fact that someone in the house downloaded an obcenely large amount of crap and went over the download limit. So, in turn, dad isnt letting us on, accept for now, because he isnt home and doesnt know that i know the password. Lets keep the on the low down ok! I have news. I gave up on my glasses the other day when i sat on them for the 90th time. Soo off the the optometrist i went to get me some contact lenses. $87 and 30 mins later i was poking myself in the eye struggling to get them in. But persistance payed off, they are great, i can actually wear sunglasses now, and they dont get stuck in cars when im shoulder deep under the bonnet of a ford!

I went to a wild party the other night with sean. One of his mates was turning 18 so i reluctantly went with sean, missing out on kates birthday and the clubs they were off too. But, all was not lost. The party was pretty good despite my first impressions. The amount of alcohol that i consumed probably helped a fair bit. The only downside of the party bein that there wsa alot, and i mean alot of 14 year old teenie boppers that were totally wasted on booze and messed up on drugs. At last count, when i was sober for a short period, there was around 5 girls passed out wasted, a F*****G disgrace i think. Anyway my drinking continued and i eventually spewed, dont know whether it was the food, or the drinks i mixed. But on a big upside, there was lots of good lookers there, one particularly took my fancy. Goes by the name of Amelia. She looked really nice, was really polite and wasnt pissed of her nut. Just one of those really nice looking girls that you dont see very often, the conservative ones that doesnt look slutty. I was too wasted to do anything about it though! So im on the lookout for a really nice/ conservative girl, one that i actually have a chance with. Well... at least i know what i want now.
Anyway, i have to go, i have a guy coming round to look at my VK, hopefully, he will buy it and i can get rid of it and all the spare parts i have!!

**advice to younger viewers: wait till your 18 to get pissed, then you have something to look foward too**
