Con rambelings part 1

Well Pheno is done for another year Trophies won, friends huged and sugar eaten. This was my first one as a Canberra resedent and my first one where I was the host to people from Melbourne (waves) all this can be summed up in one small word
Not only was it so very good to catch up with so many people in the one place at the one time but I had the added bonus of having the owner of my heart helping the awesome Ms J in the canteen so she was on hand to show off (didn't they both look so hot?) and provide me with hugs between games. As usual the Orgs did a bang up job keeping everybody organised and happy, Ryan the great seemed to be everywhere making shure that everybody was being looked after. more later but right now I have to go back to that work thing and earn the money I just spent over the weekend.
More to come

Anzac day

I rise before the sun to honor those who have fallen

In the coming up
And the going down
We shall remember them

"If we live good live it is because be are borne on the backs of fallen heroes"

Have a Good Anzac day and take a moment to pause and honor the men and women not the wars they were in

Fire, Change and Guilt

My state is burning.

Most people have already posted something about this already and like all of them my heart goes out to the poor people who have suffered loss of home and loved ones.
As I was flying into Melbourne from Canberra I happened to look out the window of the Plane to see the hills sipping below me. They were burning, smoke rolled in great greasy plumes into the air staining the sky a muddy brown. Smoke trailed from the fires seeming to cover the state with a pall of Ash and despair. I just stared at it till the plane banked and it was lost from view. So many people suffering so much destruction and all I could feel was guilty.
You see up until that point I had been happy.
I was in love
I had a new job
Life seems to be on track

Now I know there is no connection between my life and the Bushfires but still my mood took a hit.
Take a moment to think of others this week, your help my be all they need to get their life back on track.

Now I am off to donate on the red cross site

Just a quick note for now.



Now that that's out of my system I shall provide the details.

Some time ago I met a beutiful woman and fell in love. All of this was fantastic except for the fact she lived in another city (first Sydney then Canberra) so after many all to breif visits and a HUGE phone bill I decided to look for work in our nations capital.
After a drive up the Hume that can best be discribed as frustrating I unloaded my car in our new place in Campbell. I looked for the grand total of a week before I was offered a job running the Fone Zone store here in Civic (recession what recession).

My job starts in a little over two weeks so I will be down in Melbourne soon to see all the fine friends I have there before I start my life anew.

Many thanks to all you fine people I don't think I could get through my day without you love and support.

Now I must go and run around the house again ;)

Why does my brain hate sleep?

Night four and maybe three hours sleep.
I go to bed and just lie there listening to the sounds of the world around me. This not a new experience for me but usually I can pinpoint the cause of it. My search for work in Canberra is not going as planned but as I am not on any timetable but my own I don't think that's it. Perhaps it's just the change of seasons, hayfever and such, but I doubt it.
Do you ever feel like you are walking on treadmill that gets just a little harder to turn each time you go around?  Thats how my days have been beginning to feel. Now it's needs to be said that it is in no way anybodies fault, least of all you dear reader you are the people who make everything worthwhile.
Stupid Brain.
Well I hope that exposure to lots of bad horror films with McGoggle's and friends tonight helps.
Sorry to be a bit emo.  Put it down to an old goth feeling a bit down

Lyric time

 Shed a tear 'cause I'm missing you
I'm still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn't sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt you're in my heart now
Said woman take it slow
It'll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Said sugar make it slow
And we'll come together fine
All we need is just a little patience
(inhale) Patience...
Ooh, oh, yeah

Sit here on the stairs
'Cause I'd rather be alone
If I can't have you right now, I'll wait dear
Sometimes, I get so tense
But I can't speed up the time
But you know, love, there's one more thing to consider
Said woman take it slow
Things will be just fine
You and I'll just use a little patience
Said sugar take the time
'Cause the lights are shining bright
You and I've got what it takes to make it
We won't fake it, Oh never break it
'Cause I can't take it

...little patience, mm yeah, ooh yeah,
Need a little patience, yeah
Just a little patience, yeah
Some more pati... (ence, yeah)
I've been walking these streets at night
Just trying to get it right (Need some patience, yeah)
It's hard to see with so many around
You know I don't like being stuck in a crowd (Could use some patience, yeah)
And the streets don't change but maybe the name
I ain't got time for the game
'Cause I need you (Patience, yeah)
Yeah, yeah well I need you
Oh, I need you (Take some patience)
Whoa, I need you (Just a little patience is all we need)
Ooh, this ti- me.... 

Easier said than done

I am the dumb

I think that we all like to believe that we are above average intelligence, that we rise above the masses if only just a little. But even the smartest of us tends to do very dumb things from time to time.
Last weekend I was up in Sydney with the holder of my hart 

gryff_lionheart . All was going well until lunchtime on saturdayfred_bear and her companion P Had come down the night before and so we had decided to go to the Sydney Fish Markets for Yum Cha.
 On the way up the ramp into the building P spotted a purse lying on the ground It contained all of the lady in questions ID but no contact number. After a very good lunch we decided to drop it off at the Glebe Police station and head on to Gallery serpentine to do some shopping.
Once at the police station The following conversation occured.

Me: I'll drop it in while you find a place to park
S : Ok, it's in my bag Just grab it and we shall go around the block
Me: go it *Grabs first purse to hand and gets out of the car*

now some of you can see whats coming can't you?

About 20 min later S receives a phone call from her gym " your purse has been handed in at the Glebe police station".
It seems that one black purse looks the same as another to me. After a lot of laughter By all (my Friends and the fine officers of that station) Said purse was recovered.
Now you would think that there would be nop way that I could make my day any more embarrassing, however.
Over coffee We were discussing the fact that they are trying to ban fireworks in Canberra. P pointed out that Canberra polies have a "big grannie" attitude toward the public. I pointed out that the reason that they were banning Fireworks and not Porn was because explosives have a more immediate danger to the public than porn.
But what I actually said was...
"You can't blow your hand off with porn."
Well you can guess the reaction that got.
So even though I had already displayed the dumb once that day it seems to have not been enough.
