I've voted in a Hollywood Petition

Well, it's true and it's for Owen Wilson so V-man will be proud. I think I'll even get him to sign up too.

No War

I want to scream it into the face of everyone at the moment.

Although I don't want to go into details here, those of you who know what happened maybe can understand. My brother has made all his own decisions, and now it seems people have mistook them for my or my family's decisions.

I'm a lovely nice person, and I like it when people are comfortable around me and we are friends.

But I am sick to death of being someone else's sister - who chose to go to war. I'm sick to death of talking about 'old war tales' with people I hardly know. And I'm sick to death of the future of this country, even though the future hasn't even arrived. Sick to death of it.

Without mum and dad being here - I am the family. I am the brave face and the voice and the understanding. And that's why I've been sick, that's why I had a cold sore and couldn't make out with my boyfriend; I have too much responsibility.

It's been good being sick though, being away from work, watching buffy (series 7), watching buffy with the commentary. something i haven't done before!

Anyways, I'm sorry to be a grumpy guts but I just want to yell somewhere that's not in the backyard (grandma will hear), and i don't think i can yell into the phone at the defence force because it's not there fault.

There you go.

Ms Fits!

Ned's sister just passed a message about yesterday's Herald Sun - and Andrew Bolt wrote about Ms Fits!!! hahahaha have a look, I'm so impressed with the 'bit parts' in her acting career! Herald Sun: I'd swear this chick talks foul [07nov04]

Derrida... Now Gone

My favourite philosopher (although I have been a bit slack in recent years of loving him) has died. He was 74 and died in Paris:

Derrida derrida der-id-a - SBS News Story

Forget it

It's all totally gone to the dogs, and there's no where else to turn.

Election Day - what a drag

Oh well, at least it's a chance to be part of a democracy - even it's only ONE day every three-four years. Now what I'm hanging for is to see how many Greens get into the Senate - woopee!!!

At the moment I'm reading through Ms Fits blog to check out what she's thinking about the last week of the campaign. Her taxi driver survey seems pretty good - let's see though. It's past six so, you buggers who forgot/too busy/lazy have lost the power completely. Damn Damn Damn. The Herald Sun says "Too Close to Call" and The Age says "Howard for another few years". Damn Damn Damn.

Exciting stuff.

V-man is asleep downstairs and M&D are hanging and cooking. I'm getting hungry and should sit down to watch how Tasmania is voting so far - their polls closed an hour ago. Darling V-man drove down to see me today, worked his arse off at work earlier today. I'm hungover and tried very hard to tell Daniel NOT to vote Nationals when we headed in today to vote - what a funny mix we were - Daniel, Ned and Meals (me of course) - If only one in three people voted coalition things might turn out ok. Damn Damn Damn!!!

According to both major political parties their leaders won the big debate last night.

The best quote I heard on the radio this morning (apart from the 'boring' line in today's australian) was our 18 year old political commentator saying he almost fell asleep. And this guy LOVES his politics, especially public speaking.

I love ms fits

Once again dreaming I'm somewhere overseas, writing how Ms Fits (i put a link up on the right hand nav!) does (hilarious, especially now that we have an election on) and being warm warm warm warm. I thought that springtime was pleasant here. Somehow I forgot.

Anyways, I've been busy this week getting back into work from being away. I really had a great time overseas, catching all my besties who have fled this awful country. Everyone was great and I wish I could have stayed longer. I could have stayed much longer because I after I arrived I correctly checked my bank account balance and it looked hardly touched. What was I thinking? Vincent said he wouldn't have come back with a cent. And it's the truth!

So. We have such a horrid country here at the moment that in Jakarta just today there was a bomb outside the Australian Embassy. The news reports are still counting the victims and injured. I can't even imagine how John Howard will use this to his advantage in the polls. But all I do know is that Mark Latham has been in Bundaberg with a room full of whingers all with 'cries for help''cries for help'. At least they liked him there. I'd watch out for that free gift (a bottle of wine) if I were him.

p.s. i've been using the html editor the entire time here and have now tried the compse tab. Pretty neat maybe?

If we were to work overseas I'm studying the kinds of visa and working permits we could get.

Seeing as V-man and I are different ages, I'll have to juggle around what countries we can actually go to.

UK Visas - Information about applying for a working permit in UK.

Working Holiday - this is the one to apply for in UK. Not for V-man though it seems.

Green Card - America - the Green Card Lottery (Sam D is using in New York) & work permits. I think this one - H-1B Work Visa for college educated professionals - is the one for me.

In Islington at the moment, writing this from an internet cafe right near claire and trent's house.

is a very interesting eye catching poster around here on the underground at the moment and i could write numerous posts about my love for corey haim in my teenage years.

will have more time later - seeing as i'm paying for the hour and i've only got 9 minutes left!!!

and the other new thing i've learnt recently is this online paper:

it has some great articles - just found out that kirsten dunst has dumped america for a european hunk and george w has got a new look to his oval office:

"Took long enough," Bush said, lounging on one of the two overstuffed green leather couches he'd ordered from Jennifer Convertibles. "Just getting these couches was a chore—they almost didn't fit through the door. Then, arranging them so I could see the plasma TV while I stretched out was a real pain. Every time I thought I'd got them in a good place, I'd look and see I'd blocked out the Presidential Seal on the carpet. I didn't want to do that unless I had to." see the rest here:

A copy of an email i just wrote to v-man.

Hi the keyboard changes without notice to hiragana and katakana so i:m sorry baby, i can:t seem to write how i feel,
i:m too busy watching the words.
anyways, i love you heaps and wish you were here with me to give me cuddles. even though it:s 37 degrees today.

i:ll give you a quick run down on what we did - and hope that the keyboard keeps writing english.

friday - in flight entertainment was shrek 2, walking tall or standing tall (totally shit), hell boy and the day after tomorrow.

i:m not sure about hellboy baby - but ron perlman was great and totally cute with a red face.

we had good food - vegie is a great option and i read a book i bought.

saturday - we went to tokyo, busy city. it was pretty good all round. we went to shibuya, then daikinyama for shopping and lunch and we all bought awesome things.
then we went to shinjuku and drank at a bar that was so stylish - five bucks cover to sit and we could only sit for two hours max. we then had to pay for drinks on top of that. but the service was excellent and the toilets were to die for . you didn:t need to touch anything. handsfree flush and running water. and there was ear cleaners in the bathrooms too.

we met cinderella from tokyo disney there too and she was hilarious.

angus came and met us (us is phil sal and amelia ^ when you order stuff you say mitza meaning three) as well as a funny english gay boy friends of sal:s who is meaning three) as well as a funny english gay boy friends of sal:s who is also an english teacher. we went to this pub type restuarant were you can smoke and drink and eat fatty jap food. it:s called an issakaiya we got drunk and went home eat fatty jap food. it:s called an issakaiya we got drunk and went home.

sunday - we woke up (late ten - or eleven everyday here) and went to tokyo harbour:s suburb called Odaiba - and shopped and ate great food and shopped some more and went on the biggest ferris wheel in the world. i bought a cheap nintendo game boy from one of the electric town suburbs in tokyo too. WOW!

monday - woke up went to tobu super pool all afternoon. it was lovely and cold and i got my feet wet. my feet got really big on the plane - like i:m preggers or something and have been horrid every day. sore as hell as sally would say. it:s terrible - but oh well. i should have trained to be a tourist really. i think it:s just the heat. atsui desu ne. hot isn:t it.... we saw the cutest little boy in the world say that to his mum at the pool - he was gorgeous. i want to take all the kids home for you to see - so cute. OH, after pool we went shopping and went to pub restarant here in omiya - sal and phil:s town -and then sang karaoke. i sang roy orbison:s crying really well and robbie for you

tuesday - woke up and went to yokohama (harbour city south of tokyo) becase that:s were angus lives. i went by my self tooooooo! yippee! we had a great time shopping and thank you for my 20, 000 yen because i bought a great jacket - one that actually fits and some JEANZU - some gorgeous jeans!!!! yippee, you are such a gorgeous boy. how sneaky of you to get that money.

we looked around the harbour and drank some beer and shopped some more.

then i met my japanese friend akiko yesterday in tokyo and we shopped... i called chisato too - no reply but i let a message on her phone....
i better go now because my hour is getting thin and i:ll totally write properly in london, because i:ts taken me ages to figure out the keyboard.

When I caught up with the O.S. crew the other night Sally and Phil suggested a few things to bring over that would help them out big time. Phil really likes this kind of hair product, American Crew, and I haven't been able to find it anywhere - Lucky for Victoria Gardens near Vincent's house. There is a big long list of retailers there in case we need it next time.

There are just so many fun places to go in Tokyo - I've just found the Metropolis Visitors Guide to Tokyo and what about this:

"Shibuya Crossing (exit Hachiko)—Every three minutes complete anarchy ensues at the world's busiest intersection. Observe it from the second floor of Starbucks or join the troops."

Sounds crazy.
There's going to be a bunch of memory lanes to go down once I get to England.

I'm already feeling gooshy about it all, and I've just found the OXFORD TUBE and that's made me really happy too.

Have a look at the updated design on the side:

Gorgeous. The many times I caught the Oxford Tube I would have my notebook and write and write and write. I think I'd even made a promise to myself never to travel without a pen and paper (of some sort - as I've learnt that there is a reason to keep those receipts from the ATM) I wrote a bunch of peoms on that bus (peoms was what I called them!), one about bus drivers who look you in the eye, one about Fredrick (was that his name?) who gave me hickies! He was a young Swedish boy, very cute.

I'm getting REALLY excited about going, and I spoke with Sally and Claire tonight about it too!!! Yippee. I so can't wait for both trips, but mostly Tokyo - because I've never been and I just can't wait for cuteness galore.
After Japan, of course, I'm going to London to visit my friends there. I'm so happy about my little trip, although it's not that adventureous really. I've been to all these places (minus tokyo) before. Anways, here is a site for all things London and Islington looks great so far. Vintage shops are along the main street - I like it!

I wonder where the pub is for C and T? They must have a local by now, right? Well, I'm sure I would.
Not long to my trip! Yippee! I opened my travel info et al today and checked my itinerary, and noticed my name was spelt incorrectly - Ameila instead of Amelia - so I then checked the japanese airline tickets and they were wrong too!!! I'll have to talk with the travel woman again because the name now doesn't match my passport - and hopefully I can get the tix changed over before Friday!!! Eep!

So I have to:

  • Call Sally and check about the bus from Narita Airport to Saitama
  • Call Claire and have a little conversation - I'm not sure why I'm going to call her, maybe to goss
  • Buy Amy a 8x10 frame for her photo of Spike and send that to her before Friday
  • Pick my skirts up from the girls at school
  • Take a photocopy of my passport
  • Take out travel insurance with the bank
  • Shift my money over to the better account

All this before Friday. Doesn't look to hard actually. I've spent the past week thinking about what clothes to pack, what handbag to use, what wallet to take, and this week I'll have to actually start doing it!

Friday, August 06, 2004

I've been talking with Vanessa at work (again) and sorting things out for my leave from work.
I'm totally getting excited because today is Friday and now I only have a week left to go. Vanessa says her friend has just arrive back and has a blog of his travels. >>>Gidz guide to: >>> There it is!

And being a little bored I thought I'd look into online computer games. Do you ever get that itching feeling about things you want to google? I feel agitated that I can't remember what I wanted to look up, and I start feeling undernourished or under-real. Like as if because I can't think of something to look up or check up on or explore or discover or smile at, I feel not real. I think that's the equation I'm trying to create here. I don't feel value first off, and then pissed off that I can't think of anything. And thus... >>> Do It Yourself Adventure >>> My sure fire things to look up are online games and free stuff.

I remember the first few months of using the internet in year 12 was to find free stuff. mugs, mouse pads, stickers, key chains. my god it was crappy free stuff. Trent started it and of course I followed eagerly. The search engines were so different then. Yahoo was around, and about five or six other strange names... I wonder if I'll ever remember them... I did have a favourite one. Oh (*sigh*) internet memories.
I think V would really laugh at this, I laughed a lot and I found it care of my favourite blogger. >>> RAMONES NAME GENERATOR >>> . I wonder if you have to be granted permission by the blogger so that they can become your favourite? Or can I just proclaim that she is my favourite blogger without introducing myself?

Confusing, I'm sure. I'm not sure about the lack of paragraphs this setting has created for me, I might log in and change it soon. Work whinge approaching >>> I just can't believe how idiotic my boss is. I wonder how many people around the world can say that? I can't believe some of the things this man does. What is an appropriate name for him? Any ideas anyone? Please leave comments if you can think of a handle. I can't leave any real info about him. I'm too afraid of defamation!!!! Anyways, he's a tosser and that's pretty much all he is.

Anyways, I'd better leave it at that.

Angus is so lovely, he's just emailed me with this link on travel and stuff in Japan. >>> - Information and Services for Gaijin in Japan, Trains, Food, Webmail, Jobs, Classifieds, Web Design, Web hosting, Sayonara sales, Dictionary and more

I'll have to have a good look at it later, because I'm at work now.

Taking a tour around Tokyo on the net, everything seems quite good - people are saying that it's not as expensive as rumours have it.
Tokyo Review

>>> I've just visited this review of shopping or nice neighbourhoods for a bargain.

And installing blog this! onto mum and dad's computer - how else would i get by? it's getting too late to be blogging, but i just needed to post that link in case i forget the place names. it's going to be pretty hard getting around tokyo... oh well. i'll survive, i'm such a big girl.
So, there was this tennis coach at a private school in the city. he fancied a 14 year old girl, who fell under his charms. until she was 18 years old. she's now come 'out of the woodwork' to charge the man with having an underage affair (not rape?) and she won in court yesterday. he goes to prison for this last night! i saw in the paper that the jury had more women than men in it, but does this matter. 14 years old isn't an adult, she wouldn't haven't had had a clue. I think you tend to think that you know what's going on then, at that age, but if a teacher (someone in authority) takes that relationship further - that's pretty bad.

There was a young woman with this man in the paper too (walking with him last night on the news) and how would that feel like? A man you're walking with has taken guidence and responsiblity and thrown it away and mistreated trust. A man (maybe she was a sister and not a girlfriend?) you know has (ages ago) done that.

Vanessa from work is so fun and she's very helpful. Lucky I called her just now to help out on a story, because her friends have just got back from Tokyo and used this site as a guide before they went>>> superfuture.

yippee. I can't wait to go (less than two weeks to go - more like ten days!) and now i'll be able to check this site out.

Just lost a really boring post, it was full of lists. Lists I will never read again, Lists I will never really need again.

It went along the lines of... buy Claire some paw paw cream before going overseas and give v-man lots of kisses on the weekend. Typical, and the above was the good part.

I'm still trying to locate my voice in all of this blog. I think because I have such short snippets of writing, bursts of blogging inspiration like every three or four months, I lose my online writing sense of being. I loved it when I was at uni (the good old days) and harped on about whatever stuff... although I've looked ( at what i used to write at uni and it's really boring, this is the most interesting page I've ever written. Shito really.

I'm leaving to play spider solitaire some more before I go back to work.

Funny blog from Melbourne...

I've just read the funniest post, and I think it's because I knew about the content. I wonder if you just read other blogs forever without familiarity you'll feel lonely and lost. I read this person's blog and just have to link to it - Ms Fits is the person behind the writings, and I've just found out she (perhaps?) is small - well she seems to know a lot about being small anyways.

Har Har, I may write comments to her messages in the future if they are funny again... Go blogger, it feels like spying on other people's lives and I keep forgeting how fun that is. And I also keep forgeting what tone to write my posts in... Do I write as if I am reading it? Do I write to Vincent? Do I write to the unknown reader? Do I really care?

Goodnight, I have to get up for work (don't we all - apart from arts students out there) and it's a bit late for me.
I'm having a msn conversation with this guy chris who i've met online over three years ago. And we maybe talk once a year. He's ok - but very forward. He lives in Sydney, so that's ok then.  He meets people in real life who he meets online, and i've never done that before. I don't really meet that many people online and if I do - i already know them from real life.

Anyways, today i went to work, organised the program before Jo left, i did some online type stuff. came home ate a salad and played the Sims again. i'm not really addicted, i would be in the computer was faster! Anyways, i came back to work and the manager really made me mad for some reason - he's so bad at organising things and today i nicely confronted him about a few things here at there... hmmmmm!

I miss vincent badly, so i'll send him a goodbye ether kiss (not ether as in the liquid - as in 'through the ether') i love you darling boy!

Tuesday, July 27, 2004

I've been looking around at people's blogs recently and I feel so daggy. I'm so not into blogging and I just want to be into blogging. Nevertheless, I'm writing to say I'm going to Japan and UK in less than three weeks! So maybe I'll get all ready to blog then! Yippee!

I've moved back to mum and dads, I've been playing spider solitaire because it's really fun and hard to win. Vincent and I have been really busy and seeing movies. 'Closer' screened at the Cannes Film Festival and premiered in Melbourne this festival as well. It was really good, Vincent was worried about one shot but I'm not worried at all. It was lovely and beautiful.

MOSH!! :: Home - A forum page that i've never been to before. it may be the same one that terri-anne spoke about?

Sunday, March 07, 2004

Can't find anything - not even a sausage.
It's a gloomy but warmish Sunday here in Sale.

I've woken hot with Vincent, after quite a restless night for the both of us. His head was busy and I was just too hot under the covers, and wanting to hug him, but getting way too hot for hugs and so my sleep was muggy.

I read over some of Jill's novel again - and she's pretty good at telling a great story. I've heard some of the stories before but her writing style is quite good I guess.

Then Vincent and I watched Buffy - Pangs. Where Xander gets syphillus, and Buffy just wants Thanksgiving to be perfect.

That's only the second time I've watched that ep. because I think when it went live on channel seven I may have missed that ep in particular, but I've seen most of the others before in that box set. Unfortunately the video story sold me the 16:9 instead of the usual 4:3 - and apparently Joss told everyone that the 16:9 is the Warner release and he didn't like it or approve of it.

Anyways, I may have to get the next half of series four soon because I can't wait for: Tara to arrive - I didn't like her much the first time round but having known her a bit better after two or threes years now, I want to see her again. I was waiting for her to be bad the first time round. Just not wanting to trust her - was I siding with Buffy? I was I just waiting for a demon to walk out of her body. New people on Buffy take a while to build up trust with me (and other characters I guess), but how strange that I liked Spike straight away, even though he killed anything, and not someone like Tara.

I also can't wait for us to be over Riley, he's such a nong.

And I can't wait for Vincent to watch that 'Something Blue' episode - maybe we can squeeze it in before we go today - he's at a massage now. hopefully having a good time.

I'm going to search buffy sites now to see what that WD or WP - sticker means.

Sunday, February 08, 2004

Hi there - I'm sitting in the lounge room on a really hot sticky day.

I haven't gone swimming yet - but i have my bathers on and we're just all sitting around talking blah blah blah.

We've had the best weekend - well, i have that is. apart from totally missing vincent....
