Bloggy Bloggy Bloggy, Bork Bork Bork

So this new year resolution that I should blog only about events and not silly feelings is working out in favour of my laziness. As you can see no updates for a while. Lucky for someone the WoW servers are down for an extended period today and so I might as well write an entry before my brain fills up with events and starts purging.

So let's see what's been happening. Last Friday the movie night choice was The Incredibles. Still not as good as Ice Age, but pretty funny. The animation of hair was amazing. And I really liked the mini movie at the start Boundin'. The story of The Icredibles was a bit flatter than I'd expected, but still a few random quirks in between saved it. Thumbs up.

I got my christmas present in the mail from mum - a home baked fruit loaf. That lasted me through to the 7th. Pretty tasty.
Speaking of NZ Post, they successfully managed to lose a present I sent in the mail and now don't want to hear about it. It's all very frustrating. I filled out a compensation form and mailed it but I'm not liking my chances.

Work has been same old, same old. I've resolved to stop trying calling in sick because it just doesn't work. I might as well hang in there until Uni starts. Then I can reduce to just weekends, and after I've been there 6 months I will get a 5% lifetime Discount card and can quit justified.

The other day they got me to clean out the meat cabinet. Apparently it hasn't been done in a very long time because I discovered bits of meat at the bottom that were green in colour. Except as one dead insect. It was exciting. Especially considering that one cannot clean out the cabinet without shoving half of your body into it and twisting in amusing ways. So now body aches in all sorts of places.

Speaking of aches, I fell down the cliff the other night. The bush walk is really slippery and 10 pm there is absolutely no light. So here I was walking merrily along, planning my birthday party, as KAPOW, I'm sliding down the cliff side. It was really odd because I remember thinking - so is this what love is like, comes when you lease expect it, who would want it when they least expect it, how stupid...

Anyhow, I tried to get back out but the dirt was all slippery and I kept sliding back down. At this stage I'm thinking this only happens in the movies, in real life people don't get quick sand effect in the middle of Karori. Just as all hope was lost, this guy shows up. And I mean that is so very random. No one usually walks anywhere near the bush track, let alone on it, as it only leads to like three houses. More random however, is that he's carrying a vacuum cleaner. So this random guy at 10 pm, in a bush track, with a vacuum cleaner, pulled me out from the cliff side. He walked behind me all the way up the track. And then he says: "You're pretty brave to be walking here in this hour". And I think: "Oh crap, please don't kill me, Mr Vacuum Cleaner Man". Needless to say I walked up that track faster than my heart would allow it. When I got home, I discovered that I was covered in a cake of mud. Mmmm mud.

What else, what else. WoW has been pretty good. I somehow inadvertently managed to subvert all the people I know into playing it. So now I have no friends.
I'm going to dye my hair today, it's due for a colour boost. Hopefully it doesn't come out with polka dots.

Somewhere in the midst of all the events above, I've been having some really bizarre dreams - that I had septocemia, AIDS, fungal outbreak, and today it was topped by muppets on stage singing in Italian. You'd think sleep is brain's way of dealing with every day problems, but no obviously my brain signed up to the plan where it just adds to them. Stupid brain.

And that's all folks.
