Gardening

March 28, 2009 at 19:00 (Uncategorized)

I don’t think anyone would have recognised me this afternoon – I was gardening.  Serious stuff like transplanting plants, clearing concrete from around the plants, digging and watering and getting very muddy.   Now the one section of the garden doesn’t look like a builder’s site.

Though, on second thoughts I may have been recognisable – I hadn’t gone out to do all of the above so I was not really dressed for gardening – white frilly shirts and stud belts aren’t really the thing to wear while grubbing in the dirt. 

I’ve invented a new drink – Iron Brew and vodka.  All it needs is a cheesy name like ‘Hard Iron’ and it will be hugely popular amongst people – only that ‘people’ would be me. 

It’s amazing what people tell you if you pretend you don’t know anything.

Discovery

March 27, 2009 at 20:19 (Uncategorized)

I discovered there is a UNISA exam centre in MB – I found this out last night through someone who studies through UNISA and writes here as well.  It’s too late to change for May/Jun exams [and I want to go back to CT] but I’m thinking about it for Oct/Nov because they are so spread out [the exams] and then just staying in CT for December.  I’m starting piano lessons and don’t want to miss those that I’ve paid for – you pay per school term.

And I’ve started Wu Tai Chi – it’s quite nice, I enjoyed it.  Though, the instructor is also my dentist…

Pulled

The misshapen tooth can’t be saved so I’m having it pulled next week. But other than that I have good, clean teeth. This is good to know considering I last went to the dentist almost four years ago 😛

Air Gear RAW

March 23, 2009 at 18:38 (Uncategorized)

After some backwards and forwards on the Air Gear thread I managed to get the RAW for 235 and am attempting to translate it.  However, the quality is very low and I’m struggling a bit to read it so I don’t know how far I will get. 

I have a dentist appointment tomorrow to sort out some weirdness with a wisdom tooth.  Luckily there is no pain with the tooth – it’s just really misshapen due to sudden gum reccession and I fear it’s a food trap that could become a painful problem. 

Media studies is a crap subject.

Onion soup

March 22, 2009 at 16:33 (Uncategorized)

Aki-chan will understand this.

I was meeting some of my father’s friends and we ended up talking about sweet chilli sauce and I said how great it was mixed with mayo, spead over chicken and baked to be served on rice. The woman then said oh, you should add – and I froze, sure she was going to say brown onion soup but she didn’t.

She said WHITE ONION SOUP!

I had a thought last night about Bleach 350… Shinigami are dead, Hollows are dead, Visored are dead and Ichigo is a bit of everything.

Unexpected

by the Fourth, that is – Naruto’s reaction made me laugh out loud. 

Though having read them now, I have nothing to read tomorrow morning…  Maybe Air Gear will be out.

Trust

March 18, 2009 at 17:52 (Uncategorized)

People are very trusting in MB. They take your word on anything. You don’t need proof of anything – what you fill in on the form is obviously the truth. Though the library did take over a week to issue a card 😦

I really, really get upset when characters I like die in books and I get really, really angry at some of the characters when they make silly mistakes. I’ve just finished The Last Kingdom by Bernard Cornwell – enjoyed it so much except for the dying and the silliness. Now I have to try and find the next one and I know it is on the bookshelf in CT because I bought it and stuck it there.

Drum

March 17, 2009 at 19:46 (Uncategorized)

Doing something silly in my sleep, I hurt my neck on Thursday.  But this time it was a lot more painful than before so I ended up going to a stress relief thing.  I wasn’t exactly pressured into it but I wasn’t going alone and the pain was so that I was willing to try the crystal crap – but she’s not like that 😛  I rather liked her.  She did say that my lower back muscles were so compacted [??] that she could beat out a rhythm were I a drum.  And she saidthat it would feel worst before it felt better.  I think she should have said you will feel like crap – the agony.  The only time I could actually tolerate the pain was to lie on my back with my knees bend.  Even my jaw hurt.  I had had a migraine on Friday and so didn’t want to take more drugs because then I feel like shit and can’t concentrate.   So I spent the day on my back reading communication law – terribly boring and complex but alas, necessary.

Anyway I’m going for more on Thursday – you have to have a few before you feel well.  Today there was a lot of pain but a lot more movement.  Erm… we shall see.

Curiously, she said it was years worth of stress that had caused the muscles to compact so.  Then I got thinking, I don’t [or so I believed] lead a highly stressful life – there are times that are stressful.  But then again, last year was bad.  Just bad and the year before I was still working in the Dungeon and that was bad so maybe…  Though, I say this but while she was working on my back – the relief! 

I managed to send off two assignments today but I’ve got two due on Friday… a bit behind but can make it.  I’ll fumble through Japanese – eep!
