Was great to see Drew & Pup (Neil) last night before crashing into bed - it had been a long for me . Today ...Up early-ish, missed the 8:29am train into the city - just:-(. So I walked through Alma Park to Windsor station while waiting for the 9:09. Caught the 9:32 to Hurstbridge from Parliament station the piped muzik echoing along the tube was a less than inspiring way to start the day! 10:06 bus to Heide, stocked up on my favourite milk and snacks for the day and managed to get in the door my 10:20 Yah!

A lazy day off in the shade to recharge. Absent friend for a while Alan came to visit was great to catch-up. Finally got around to seeing Pans Labyrinth - WOW ! Straight to the top of my movie list . So beautiful with the magical elements balanced by the ultra realistic violence. Had the greek-boy and I immersed in conversation all the way home. If you have not seen it ... Go soon and see it on the BIG screen.

Spent Friday checking off a few chores. Visited my Tax Agent - I now have an ABN. Dropped in on Paul to see his Pilates studio on Izett St. Organised and filed pix. Investigated podcasting. Cookie dropped in for a snack. Hot-cross buns on Sale at Coles already!

The beginning of my weekend - 2 days off in a row! Thurs - doctors appointment, blood results back - all good - no action required - Yah!. Dropped in to see Fulup just back from Tasmania. Enjoyed the view and got to try out his new coffee machine. Mmmmmm caffiene makes me perky. Did a little bit of retail therapy at Rebel new white Everlast sneakers at 40% OFF the already discounted price - Could have gone crazy alas all too small. New friend Matt dropped by for coffee in the afternoon. Is it a wonder I don't sleep some nights?

Attended Carnival and T-dance yesterday - the closing events of the Midsumma festival. Went with Nursie, the Greek Boy & Zen. Was great to see Pony and Marcus, Marc, Marc (baby-bear), Adam, Andrew M & reptilian friend, Cookie, Travis and all the usual suspects. Had a good boogie under the trees. Note to caterers and event organisers - if you are going to charge $20 bucks entry ensure bar service does not exceed 45 minutes! Queens hate to queue - perhaps its a responsible serving of alcohol message?

Australians seem to love a bit of slang. Key words and phrases at work at the moment include: issues, unfortunate, I'm not over the detail, WIP = work in progress, budgetary restraint, FOH = front of house, BOH = back of house, YTD = year to date, SOH = stock on hand, SMEC = Sidney Meyer Education Centre, call centre = main office, stanley/s = snake, Bob = facilities Manager, Bear cave = my office. What language do u speak at work?

Time to take a leap?
I think my friend Nicola is right I am a frustrated buyer! Maybe 2007 will be the year to invest in myself and do something I believe I in - instead of getting annoyed at a lack of vision in others?

Essential reading in my pursuit of healthy aussie glow? Perhaps grow a body first? Nursie has a great stack of these magazines for inspiration and the insightful reading material. RE the tan I have enjoyed being a pale thang for a long time but I am trying some controlled burning and an everyday fake tan to see how orange I go!
My buddy Peter sent me the following txt msg over the weekend "F.U.C.K. stands for "Friends U Can Keep" So promise me, you'll F.U.C.K. Me 4ever! Send to 10 ppl including me, & c who F.U.C.Ks u back." made me laugh and I sent out into the wild for a response. All good, but I must remind myself before hitting send this kind of stuff can be like spam email - annoying (and expensive if you tally up the txt msgs) Belated apologizes to all. Pic is of a billboard at Richmond Station - apparently it does matter how big your shampoo bottle is!
