Some Happenings [Apr. 22nd, 2006|12:15 am]

Well, after six months of "living" at the New Lambton penthouse I have returned "hone". Not that I didn't always have a fair bit of stuff here (including a bed, which I slept in on a semi-regular basis) but I have now moved almost everything back to Fishing Point aside from a couple of things which will be picked up tomorrow in the cleaning process.

I had to live there for six months as if you don't live in your first house within the first year for a period of six months the government comes and takes your $7,000 first home owners grant away. I guess it is to stop people using the grant for investment properties which makes sense.

Anyway I'm back home again now, some would ask why but Mum and Dad are pretty kewl and it's far cheaper and I can also lease my unit out for probably $160 a week which will sure help the mortgage along. For the last six months finances have been fairly tight and this should take some of the pressure off.

Another bonus is that now I can hook my PC directly to my 5.1 home theatre system so it is now shared between TV/DVD/PS2/PC, all of which have different connections which is,.. odd. (RCA, Optical(Coaxial), Optical(Toslink), 3.5mm stereo) One drawback is we are still on dialup here (not for long hopefully) but since I had no net access at the flat I have been downloading updates for Windows, Office, Steam and AVG since 1pm. I think I have downloaded well in excess of 120MB on dialup, which makes those silly 200mb Broadband plans sound amusing to say the least.

How about that... [Mar. 23rd, 2006|04:48 pm]

.. 2 entries in 3 days,.. well I all like a regular user and stuff.

Essentially have 4 days off now. I have every second monday off and tomorrow is the sports carnival which is pretty much like a holiday anyway, I'm the guy manning the shotput. I do have to write two essays though so it's not like I'll be bumming around doing nothing but there will be a bit of that done to be sure. Been watching the Comm games a bit, it's ok, not like the olympics tho, it;s always better beating people from the USA in things than crappo countries like New Zealand, apart from netball and rugby (in that order) they got nothin.

Hello,

It has been a while, so whats up with me? Still working, still single, still studying, not much has changed, except maybe attitude and appliance to things I have to do.

Still semi-living in New Lambton, gonna head back home tho when my 6 months runs out (April) so I can start getting rent again and paty off the loan quicker. I'd rather sell but the market is not right just now and I'd lose money, not a happy thing to do but if I pay as much of the loan off as I can then I'll be ahead in one way, being ahead is good, being behind sucks, I have spent too much time being behind.

I think I'm pretty much ready now for a new relationship, I thought I was before, but some stuff has happened lately to reassure me of this, I have no idea how that is going to happen or when but I will have to keep my eyes open I think, I know I'm not settling tho, I won't and if that means I die alone, so be it,.. heh,.. you get that.

Trivia! [Nov. 14th, 2005|11:46 am]

Trivia night:

This saturday night, 19th November at Toronto Baptist Church, 7:30pm

Tickets are $10 (you can pay at the door) but we have probably over $1,000 worth of prizes so it's well worth entry, plus we're fundraising for the extension of said church building.

Come along for Spoon-trivia!

hmm,.. this new "My LJ" thing is a little bit "MY Ebay" don't you think?

Mangled ankle on Sunday playing basketball, after doing so, still came in to bat playing peg cricket and hit six over bus while hopping on left leg. Also managed to nearly hit bethany in the dead with lofted straight drive, was not worried she may catch it. Go me.

Had work off on Monday due to lack of ability to walk and/or drive, back at work Tuesday, bandaged but in pain. Bronwyn sees the pansy bandage I had and gets me a better one, also does my lunch duty for me. W00t!

WEnt to trivia tuesday night, played fairly well at times but failed in one round in particular. Dawes thought we all said "Rainbow Lorikeet" when we really said "Budgie", lost 2 points for that on the joker round.

At school now, typing,.. In my magazine group but most people are playing online flash type games, I"m kinda apathetic to the cause. Anknle still hurts a lot, the bruise looks awesome and should improve..

Please note that this message is mostly fueled by boredom.

Anyway, Trivia last night was good value, didn't win anything but had a good time. Our normal team had to be split in two as we had too many people (12) for one team and so we became the off cuts. Was a bit of a pity though coz it's the night that Terry and Jeanette come and they're tops.

I'm sittin at school now in computers, I'm really tired and don't feel too well, as some of you will probably know I'm kinda moving in to New Lambton, although I should still be out at Fishing Point on the weekends, I went and bought myself a TV (68cm flat) which is tasty and I have been slowly moving things from home to there. I have been taking happy snaps using my phone of the various stages, mostly for my own amusement but I will put some up here but I don't have a data cable for it yet so that will have to wait. I have one waiting for me in Toronto but I'm not there now.

Anyway, I'll let everyone know when I move in properly and you can come round and visit or something, lets face it, being there by myself is going to be pretty lonely and I'm not looking forward to that.

A recent conversation... [Oct. 22nd, 2005|08:32 pm]

[Current Music |Dream Theater - Finally Free]

Spooney: Hey come and look at this TV I have a bid on.."
Chezza: Ok,.. How big is it?
Spooney: 80cm, think about Tracy's TV, it's 14cm bigger than that.

(At this point, Chezza puts her hands out to try and measure how big that actually is)

Chezza: Hey wow, that's bigger than a metre!

Ahem...
