More Andre Rieu Tickets [Nov. 27th, 2008|03:32 pm]
[Tags|, , , ]

Hi all

I have another two Andre Rieu tickets. They're for friday night & are not together. They are better seats (one 2nd row from the front) so I'd have to ask for more $ (maybe $200 for both).

Why does watching movies make me want to cuddle? Especially blood soaked horror movies.

Gregg & I moved into our new house over the weekend. The move went relatively smoothly with Gregg having to do pretty much all the moving as I'd...

Broken legs [May. 21st, 2007|11:04 pm]

[music |The Cult - She Sells Sanctuary]

I'm just home from after-work drinks with the boys & I'm legless. By which I mean I'm drunk & I broke my prosthetic leg. The lock which stops my knee from bending while I walk is busted which means I'm gonna have to go into the office on crutches tomorrow.

It's not until the fucking thing breaks that I realise how much I actually rely on it. I can't wear it in its current state without fear of falling over and breaking my leg proper (which I've done on more than one occasion). It also means I'm gonna have to deal with the bloody NSW prosthetics system & believe me when I say they wouldn't know their ears from their arseholes.

A week and then some [Apr. 25th, 2007|09:43 am]

This week

- Drank so much beer I can barely remember what happened.

- Watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 at Andrew's. That is one hilarious movie & watching it on DVD is even more enjoyable than watching the 5th generation VHS dub I got for Xmas from Mardi.

- Went around to visit Damien & he cooked Chicken Parmigiana, he's gonna make a great wife to some lucky lady. After dinner (& icecream) met up with Simon for an indie night at the Flinders & felt kinda old. It was more emo/scene than I was expecting, lotsa girls with asymmetrical haircuts & boys in tight jeans. The music was pretty cool until they started playing things like Womack & Womack & Abba, the irony was lost on me.

- Had my head shaved by someone else for the first time. I came home drunk on Friday or Saturday (:?) & Nina got it in her head that she wanted to shave me. Being drunk I gave in but I was a little concerned she was going to slice me up pretty badly, either accidentally or on purpose. It was kinda nice, but next time hopefully it'll be some spunky man doing the shaving. Then Nina & Gregg got arguing so I went to bed.

- Fixed an on-air mistake at work & got the praise of my boss. I doubt anyone was actually sitting at home glued to 'The Great Gatsby' at 10am Sunday, but if they were at least they didn't have to watch the 3rd segment twice.

- Went out with Simon & Andrew on Sunday night (my Friday) to Phoenix & got way, way too drunk. Was getting kinda fresh/touchy-feely with Simon & he asked if I "liked" him. Thankfully he did, so I didn't have to bring it up. He shouldn't have been surprised (if he was), he's an amazing & incredibly sexy guy. We've talked about it since but I dunno if I'm glad it's out or not.

- Had dinner at Doma Beer Cafe in the X with Tara, Andrew, Tara's brother & a couple of other guys. Was feeling pretty lousy (ie. hungover) but the stein of beer I had with dinner made me feel much better, damn it's evil stuff.

- It's been raining for 3 days & I'm truly glad. I love miserable, rainy weather.

The week as it was [Apr. 14th, 2007|04:49 pm]
[Current Location |Work]
[mood |goodgood]
[music |Some fat bird singing show-tunes (see current location)]

- Didn't eat a single easter egg, I ate chocolate but not for religious reasons.

- Finished my latest crochet/amigurumi project, will post fotos soon.

- Scruffy died on Monday night. I buried him in the garden on Tuesday then took the day off work. I miss his night-time food demands. He was around a year old, a good age for a mouse & better than if he'd stayed in the lab.

- Went from morning shift to night shift & am currently doing my second solo shift. The job is going well & I'm learning bankable new skills. Gonna watch the John Carpenter special tonight, the only thing I've actually wanted to see so far.

- Am slowly getting used to beer, I've probably had 10-15 total since Monday.

- Took Gregg & Christine out for dinner & then met Simon, Paul & Adrian at the Newtown. Good company but was kinda bored (until the beer took effect).

- Found a flea in my bed & got pissed off. There was a bit of door-slamming & muttered curse words.

- Got a told I need to move out within 5 weeks, might need more time but would move today if I could. Gregg's coming with, leaving Phillip to his partially washed plates, mongrel cats & assorted "idiosyncrasies".

- Had more crazy dreams, one about shitting the bed, repeatedly. Another about running someone down on Xmas day & another where I was in a relationship with someone I like & we had a threesome with Chris Evans (actor from Fantastic Four/Sunshine) but woke up before the sex part.

- Bought myself a few presents with my first pay; a grey bonds hoodie, DVDs & underwear.

- Went to a midnight screening of Sunshine with Andrew & ate nearly an entire bucket of popcorn. I love how the salt affects my lips.

- Didn't smoke any weed, but wanted to.

Alcohol & night-posting [Mar. 30th, 2007|03:00 am]

[music |Da da da da HEY dadadada]

I should really be asleep right now but I'm still quite drunk. I dragged my sorry arse along to the Newt' for amateur-strip-night & after the stripping was done continued on at the Imp'. I almost made out with a 25 british boy who looked alot like my ex Paul, or how he used to look, who know's what time & drugs have done to his good looks.

Apparently us Aussie guys are "quite forward", or I am anyway. Just because I was taking swigs off people's beer & talking about my "tits" I'm forward? I tried to keep my mouth shut & not say dumb shit but that becomes harder the more I drink/ingest.

Tomorrow/later today is the last day of the first week in my new job & I can't wait to sleep-in on saturday.

Art fag [Mar. 26th, 2007|09:42 pm]
Today was the first day in my new job. I still dunno what my title is but I'm transfering all kinds of art shows, opera specials & Barry Manilow concerts into the station's server & making sure the schedule is properly, uh, scheduled. Transferred one show if the SBS Youth Orchestra, which sent me reeling back to Fridya nights in the loading dock listening to them practise their Bach/Brahms/Whatever while I sucked down cancer-sticks. The hours kinda suck & the commute is nasty but I get to choose my own business name...any suggestions?
