I like getting new stuff. It feels all refreshing, like you can start over. But eventually you end up back where you started and want to get more new stuff. Thats the best bit about it.
Yesterday my uncle dropped off his old car audio setup from his now sold Toyota Corona. 4 speakers, Radio/CD/IPod Amp and a modest Sub. He also dropped off a never-been-used lambswool backseat cover and both heavily used front seat covers. This is the exception to liking new stuff. Even though it is old, it is new to me, thus i like the audio and the backseat cover. But the front seat covers were worthy of being thrown in the bin!
So i washed them with fabric softner and Napisan. They turned out great -__-
Now i feel a little silly making exceptions to rules that end ub being th new rules and the rule is the exception and then going back to where you started. Just like getting new stuff :D
Oh yeah! before i fall asleep, the girl that was my “assigned friend” at my first day at my last school (the one with the funny stories :p) is going ireland for a year. Certainly, she will be missed by myself, we always had great, interesting conversations about stuff. Especially when we are drunk lol Its kind of sad really, oh well, she will be back sometime i hope - goodbye old friend
Wow, i really havnt been on this thing in a while, so much to write about.
Since last time i posted, i have thought of many things i wanted to say, but never got around to. So this is like a MEGA-POST…here goes
1) TONY ABBOTT - Leader of the Liberal Party of Australia, was recently interviewed in a magazine (Women’s Weekly? February Edition? wtf) When asked a question about advice he would give to his own daughters about sex he said (paraphrase) “Sex is a wonderful gift and should not be given away lightly” or something, you can *BING* (see, im trying to advocate microsoft! only because BingMaps is soo fricken AWESOME! check it out ) the exact quote for yourself. Anyway, Julia Gillard, apparently leader of all women in australia and deputy leader of the Labor (note american spelling - i KNEW there was a reason i didnt like them lol) party came out and said “Women do not like being told what to do by Tony Abbott. See here, he is telling you all not to have sex” (or something, again, bing the quote).
So thats the background story. This was rather a big deal in australia, all blown out of proportion and context. Tony Abbott, a christian, clearly giving advice to his own daughters, not yet women, CHILDREN, asked them to consider seriously before having sex. Julia Gillard takes this to mean that he is telling ALL australian women no to have sex. This caused much debate and hullaballoo about bugger all. Personally, i think Tony Abbott is quite right to tell his own children that advice, and im sure if he had sons, he would tell them the same thing. And if anyone wants to take him out of context, surely the worst he can be saying is “Dont have sex unless you like the other guy” - which is hardly bad advice. I also think that if you are going to take things out of context, Julia Gillard could quite easily be taken out of context and be misconstrewed into promoting teenage ‘free sex’ by publicly dismissing tonay abbots advice…see how you like them out-of-context-apples! :p
For the record, I am a liberal supporter, but i vote for the best policies - usually thats the liberal party lol And i am a catholic, and i quite agree with what Abbott was saying. Its good advice.
2)Valentines Day is coming soon! Im trying to convince my girlfriend to let me celebrate it, seeing as she wont let me, coz i made a monumental hash of it last year. This year im determined to make it right. But i cant say how, she might see :p
3) Valentines Day has been and gone. I had work in the morning and planned to surprise my beautiful angel afterwards, id written her a letter, something she had asked me to do for along time, and id made a picnic (okay, so it was two sammiches, but a picnic nonetheless) and we were going to go out. When i got homw from work, i was reminded that it is my younger sister’s birthday (12, or 13 whatever) and i have to stay at home for her party and cant go out :(
Thus i failed V-Day again!!! My dear angel was monumentally pissed at me. Understandably.
The next day, i went to her house, made two new sammiches (coz i had to eat the otherones, they had fresh meat in them) and tried to make a peace offering. In the end, she was crying and fell into a deep sleep. This isnt the first time this has happened, in the past when under deep emotional stress, she has “fallen asleep” (AKA Fainted gracefully). I couldnt wake her, i tried shouting, pinching, breathing on her neck (usualy works ??? dunno why) cutting off her air supply (more commonly know as ‘kissing’) and everything. In the end i wrapped her up in a blanket and made some green tea (her fav). Ive never made green tea before, turns out i guess my way through it coz i didnt find any instructions on the box. I put the tea under her nose and POW instant girlfriend :D
Long story short, we worked everything out, and even though i hurt her so much, she gave me one last chance. I dont wanna stuff this up. :$
4) ?? ive forgotten what number im up to - ITS TOO LATE AT NIGHT FOR BLOGGING!! :(
Next) My boss told me im not motivated to work, so she doesnt want to give me shifts. This is after about 20 letters over the last 4 months asking for more hours. Go figure :p

Bedtime BTW) Whats the best way to ensure that you can climb Uluru if you travel up there, i hear that is is only open for climbing 60 days a year. I really want to take my darling and experience it before they shut it down (silly extremist greenies and indigenous people - not that i dont like you, but, its a natural part of the land. If its so sacred to you, why cant it be sacred to us to? We just treat sacred stuff differently and like to physically experience it - AKA climb) Any suggestions?
