Talk to me.
Ask me about it sometime.
In the meantime, some pictures:

awesome sexy timesCollapse )

I really think I'm getting a little too bitter and old lately for livejournal.
I guess I'm not 'hip' enough or too 'hip' but I really just don't care.
Im an old cockerwife and I need to retreat to the hills to die.
In the base of a tree.

Don't ask me about my meds - they're great and I am perfectly content and a great example of a wonderful noteworthy human being.

I have a terrible smokers cough and I can't eat anything.

I suffer from Catholic guilt these days.

I am sore.

My rocking chair sounds like two angry cooing pigeons.

I'm much more scared of you than you are of me.

1. TIPS FOR PERFORMERS

Playing cards have the top half upside-down to help cheaters.

There is a finite number of jokes in the universe.

Singing is a trick to get people to listen to music for longer than they would ordinarily.

There is no music in space.

People will pay to watch people make sounds.

Everything on stage should be larger than in real life.

2. LIFE ON EARTH

Men like pastries, women like custards.

Scientists have invented a love drug, but it only works on bugs.

Animals like earthquakes, tornadoes and volcanic activity.

Nuclear weapons can wipe out life on Earth, if used properly.

Cats like houses better than people.

Dolphins find people amusing, but they don't want to talk to them.

People look ridiculous when they're in ectasy.

Schools are training people how to listen to other people.

Body odor is the window to the soul.

Sound is worth money.

3. LIVING WITH OTHER PEOPLE

Violence on television only affects children whose parents act like television personalities.

Table manners are for people who have nothing better to do.

Civilization is a religion.

Civilized people walk funny.

There is always a party going on somewhere.

People will you remember you better if you always wear the same outfit.

4. THE SPACE PEOPLE

Space People read our mail.

The Space People think that TV news programs are comedies, and that soap operas are news.

The Space People will contact us when they can make money doing so.

The Space People think factories are musical instruments. They sing along with them. Each song lasts from 8AM to 5PM. No music on weekends.

5. MONEY

People will do odd things if you give them money.

When everything is worth money, then money is worth nothing.

If you keep your money in your shoe, then people will know which bills are yours.

If you crumple your money into little balls, it will never stick together.

The best way to touch money is by the edges.

U.S. money is the worst looking money in the world.

6. WORLD TRAVEL

Passport pictures are what people really look like.

Rich people will travel great distances to look at poor people.

Toast is the national dish of Australia.

People never travel to look at flat landscapes.

People would rather watch things than eat.

Looking at postcards is better than looking at the real thing.

Looking up is as scary as looking down.

7. IN THE FUTURE

In the future, women will have breasts all over.

In the future, it will be a relief to find a place without culture.

In the future, plates of food will have names and titles.

In the future, we will drive standing up.

In the future, love will be taught on television and by listening to pop songs.

8. WORK

Crime is a job.

Sex is a job.

Growing up is a job.

Religion is a job.

Being creative is a job.

9. GROWING UP

Drugs affect children the opposite way they affect adults.

Adults think with their mouths open.

...okay then...

Yesterday I went crazy manic style and wrote about thirty different TO DO lists. I decided in my over-confidence to make some concrete plans...and some of them have stuck. To begin with, I am going to finish uni. Not only finish hons, but go back, do a few necessary arts subjects and then a dip. ed. Being a teacher would not be the worst thing in the world. I get frequent holidays and if I work in the right areas and schools, I could live quite comfortably. That said, I would have to possibly teach a syllabus I don't respect to people I don't respect in bizzare and stupid places...but it is an achieveable long term goal and I'm gonna keep it in mind. Sigh. I also made a split decision to quit at IKEA, take a few weeks off as "mental health" days, and work somewhere closer to home or in some area i'm actually interested in. Also, my supervisor completely flipped out when I said I needed time off for family matters. "We don't have enough staff!" etc. She did apologise and give me the time off, but I can see managers above her challenging me about it and not being so empathetic. I then had this weirdo epiphany where I realized that my health is always second to the company (yeah, duh, the nature of modern business) and that I could have picked a few jobs with a little less responsibility. Sigh. So, I'm taking time off and getting a new job, and giving notice.

On a more positive note, come see music with me! I can't find anyone who wants to see the Animal Collective at Newtown RSL on the 4th of November... Come with me! Someone! Anyone?? Sarah Blasko is touring, as is the Mountain Goats (!!), Modest Mouse (!!!), and the New Pornographers (!!). Plus, St Jeromes looks sooo good for next year, with Yo La Tengo, the Walkmen and Camera Obscura playing...wheeeee!! This totally makkes up for the dismal Big Day Out announcement. Le Yay!

Oh, and I know I know almost everyone has panned it and I know I know I know that it doesn't open here till boxing day but I am obsessed with the Marie Antoinette trailer. Gang of Four! New Order! The Cure! How cool would you be if Marianne Faithfull was your mother, huh? huh?

We've been trying to find pictures of my Great Aunt Doongie everywhere, but she was good at avoiding the camera. My mother considers her a widow, even though she ws never married, but in a relationship for over twenty years. He couldn't divorce his catholic wife, so he eventually changed his name to hers as a sign of committment. Cute. They owned flower farms and upholstry businesses together in the fifties and sixtes. She also had a mysterious 'revenge marriage' in the late seventies that no-one knows about or talks about. Odd. All this but NO PHOTOS!
However, I did find some daggy ones of my sister and myself:

The Dreaded Ennuis [Sep. 12th, 2006|03:04 pm]
missadventure
[i am feeling |sadsad]

I'm writing this at work. I spend almost all of my time here now. In fact, I work for every second weekend that I get off. Except that I'm finding that my weekends are not living up to my expectations--especially after I've spent all of my working week daydreaming about the talks, laughs and good times I'm supposed to be having. Lately I go to parties and people are dissappointing, or I don't spend nearly enough time with them to really have a good time. Yup. Yup. I've caught the dreaded ennuis.
And this isn't targeted at anyone in particular, this is just the way that shit is going down.
My question to you all is: What should I do? Go back to uni? Move away? Keep in mind that leaving work on the spot is not an option, either.

Earnest and humorous suggestions are appreciated.

Fred Jones was worn out from caring for his often screaming and crying wife during the day but he couldn't sleep at night for fear that she in a stupor from the drugs that didn't ease the pain would set the house ablaze with a cigarette.

Have had a great week so far. Saw the Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Wednesday, who were flawless, and hung out with Peta-grrrl. Finally saw the Eels on Friday. Went to unhinged on Saturday night and had an awesome time--everyone's plays and performances were stunning, including the beautiful Laura and Mike and his onstage overindulgence. I had such a good time that I'm thinking about starting writing again, soon.

I took Polaroids, so I best post them before Jimmy gets all psychotic on my arse again:

Going to Death Cab for Cutie tonight. Yay! all round. I'm welcoming distractions of all shape and form these days. I've been very sick. Pretty much as soon as I stepped into the Jess-mobile after our impromptu-drug-fulled-escapades I was sick sick sick with fevers and sore throats and possibly even kidney problems. I haven't been able to go to work.
Tests are being tested.

No one calls me anymore.

Hahah. Last night when my mum came home from work she came upstairs to my room to check on me.
"Are you alright?" she asked, as I turned in my sleep.
"I'm not Mo Tucker, mum." I replied.
I'm even rock and roll in my sleep.

Just got back from the Fiery Furnaces. I'm still awe-struck. Absolutley ah-mazing. They've reworked all their songs for guitars, bass and drums. NO keyboards. Wow. Somehow, it translates. What a great night. Great music, good crowd (no Bogey-men and a few new friends) and I totally have a tiny (read: massive) nerdy girl crush on Matt Friedberger.
