Hello! Long time no write :)

I can't believe my birthday was a week ago. It doesn't seem that long ago but perhaps that's because it continued over this past weekend.

Friday night I went out to dinner with work!bff for my birthday and then we watched Supernatural 4x07. As much as I love the zany episodes, it was nice to get back to the serious issues at hand. It was also great to see Castiel back. I've missed that little guy!

★ ★ ★

Saturday afternoon my sister, Jenny, and her two kids, Samantha and Nicholas, dropped by with my birthday present which looked exactly like this:

They got me a little kitty!!!

Her name is Winchester, aka. Winnie, and she is adorable and cute and sooky and snuggly and soft and perfect!
Winchester meet flist. Flist meet Winchester. )

Saturday night I went to my friends Glenn and Tanya's place for dinner with them and Caz, Trent and Campbell.
Or at least that's what I was going there for... )

Today was a public holiday in Melbourne because of The Melbourne Cup. The Melbourne Cup is a horse race.
So, yep, I didn't have to go to work because of horse race. \O/
I love my city!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!
Vote well, USA Flisters.
Please. :)

I don't have to go to work tomorrow! *twirls*

My little niece is in her final year of High School and I'm having the day off to attend her graduation. Since she is 17 and lots taller than me I guess I shouldn't really call her 'little' anymore. She makes me feel both old and short! XD

In the afternoon I'll probably have a wander around Knox City (a shopping centre) and, if I can make an appointment, I'll get my eyebrows waxed. Exciting stuff, huh? XD

This weekend,a friend and I are flying to Newcastle for another friend's 50th Birthday party. We know him through work and I was pretty chuffed when I received the invite to his birthday shindig. We are flying out of Melbourne at lunchtime on Saturday, the party is Saturday night, and we fly out of Newcastle at 6pm Sunday. Therefore we have the whole day Sunday to do some touristy things. \O/ Mini!Holiday FTW!

All photo ops for J2 in Australia next year have now sold out. WOWZERS! I am so glad we booked when we did!

BTW, my handy dandy countdown tells me it's now only 178 days 11 hours 13 minutes and 11 seconds.

Yeah, I should probably stop with the countdown updates now... :)

EDIT: Link to a Jared interview from Spike TV Scream 2008 awards.
It's non-spoilery and you need to watch it to the end! ♥
Thanks [livejournal.com profile] bobbinrob for the heads up. :)

Happy Tuesday everyone! Have a great day.

1). Team!Shortbus Outing Yesterday: After much indecisiveness, we settled on seeing 'Tropic Thunder'. I lost count on the number of people we let go in front of in the queue because we couldn't decide. It was a pretty funny movie and not at all what I expected. All I knew about it was that Jack Black was in it (that was the selling point for me) so I was surprised to see a few other actors in there who, at first, I didn't even recognise!

2). Before the movie we headed up to JB Hifi (DVD/Music store). The do good out of Team!Shortbus! I picked up a copy of the, 'Friday Night Lights' (the movie), for $12.98 and then, just near the checkout, we spotted copies of Eric Kripke's 'Boogeyman for $6.89! Score! \O/

3). [livejournal.com profile] chasingangel82 has just got back from a trip to Vancouver and LA and she spoiled us by bringing us back gifts. Thanks Bec :)Baby!Winnie the Pooh )

4). Last night I was working on the laptop at the coffee table. I got up to do the dishes and look what I found when I got back... oh, Rainbow! )

5). It's Father's Day today so I've got to get moving so I can go home with Dad's present this afternoon.

6). And then, tonight I'm going to the final regular season Melbourne Storm game. As a result of previous games this weekend, Storm must win their game tonight by about 28 points to finish on top of the ladder. *gulp*

Sam: Hey, Dean?
Dean: Yeah?
Sam: Um, since you got back from, umm, hell, you haven't, umm, been yourself and, umm, I ...
Dean: Sammy, you wanna spit it out some time this year?
Sam: I, umm, just wanted to do something nice for you so I, umm, took your baby in to get, umm, detailed but... but...
Dean: But what, Sam?
Sam: There was a mix up at the shop and, oh god, please don't be mad at me Dean. I don't know how...
Dean: Sam, what have you done?
Sam: I'm sorry.
Dean: SAM!!!

'Back in Metallic Purple' just doesn't have the same ring as 'Back in Black', does it? )

Nick had his 'family' birthday party today. The cake was a success. \O/

Happy Weekend!

You receive a text from your niece which says;

"Ykywtms when youre stuck behind a car with plates that simply say SPN and youre sure the only thing it can stand for is supernatural...."

Of course, it may just mean that I have an awesome niece who thinks along the same lines I do.

Just thought I'd get in early with the countdown for next year.

After a short break, I'm back at work today and the office Christmas Carols have been replaced by Johnny Cash. I really can't believe Christmas is over already. *sigh*

My Christmas Lowdown... )

My Christmas Loot... )
But if I could I'd probably pick these two anyway. Aww, schucks.

These are my nieces, Laura and Emily, mucking about with the web camera on Laura's new laptop.

Laura and I spent half an hour or so this evening checking out if we could video chat on our matching laptops. (She TOTALLY copied me *nods*) Not that it makes a lick of difference to our ability to video chat, or anything else for that matter, but just so you know, mine is green and called 'Dean' and hers is yellow and she's thinking of calling it 'Azazel'. Ol' yellow eyes, yo! Yeah, like Aunty, like niece... Anyway, turns out we can video chat. Yay, us!

Looks like Laura kept playing after we hung up and then Emily got in on the act... )

3). Why aren't LiveJournal sending out email notifications when someone comments to one of my posts? *stoopid LJ* The really stoopid thing is, when I reply to someone else's post in their LJ I get an email notification immediately.

4). On the way to work today, I pulled up next to a delivery van with the name "TEXAS FLOWER 'RANGERS" on the side. Someone thought they were being cute when they came up with that name, eh? *face palm* And yes, it's a real company.

5). I was watching Hannah Montana (yeah, so? I like it...) on Disney Channel last night and I saw a promo for High School Musical 2 featuring the little ditty, School's Out. The cutesy boys and girls are back in town!!! Whoo hoo! I now know, the Aussie premiere of High School Musical 2 is on the 22nd of September. Only 33 sleeps to go...

6). Back to work, I go...
I went shopping to Knox today to get a few odds and ends. It's Mum's birthday next weekend and I had it in the back of my mind that I had to look out for something whilst shopping because seriously I've been coming up a blank. Luckily, inspiration hit unexpectedly and the birthday gift has now been taken care of. Can't say anymore... the internets have eyes & ears :)

Yesterday, I finished watching Season 2 of House M.D. That's two seasons worth of episodes in a little less than two weeks. I know. It's true. I have no life. Now I just have to wait for Season 3 to be released on DVD so I can be totally caught up prior to Season 4 starting.

  1. Hands up if you are going to see CROWDED HOUSE in November?  *raises both hands*  I spent  full-on a week deliberating whether I want to see them live or if I really, really, really want to see them live. Thanks to their numerous TV appearances during the past week it turned out I really, really, really want to see them live. I got me a ticket for their second show in Melbourne. Whoo-hoo!

  2. Whilst looking for Crowdies tickets I noticed that The Shins are also touring Australia. Next month!

  3. Sam and Nick stayed for another couple of nights during the week. Thursday night they wanted to watch Cars which, don't get me wrong, is a totally cool movie but also a movie they can watch anytime. I wanted to share a bit of old time movie magic with them. I've tried getting them to watch The Goonies before but they really aren't that interested in it. I know! Who does not love that movie? Kids today, huh? This time I made them watch Labyrinth and they totally dug it, especially Nick. It made me all kinds of proud and happy. It's awesome that a movie made 21 years ago still looks as good and is still as entertaining as Labyrinth is today. And yep, it really was made 21 Years ago. And nope, I can't believe it either.

  1. Adelaide, Sam and Nick stayed over last night. Good times were had be all. Bed time was approximately 22:30. Not too bad.

  2. The third State of Origin was played last night. Queensland had already won the series, 2-0, so really it was just a chance for either: 
    a). Queensland to humiliate New South Wales with a white-wash, or
    b).New South Wales to regain a bit of pride.
    Unfortunately, it ended up being the latter with NSW winning 18-4. 
    Melbourne Storm's Dallas Johnson & Greg Inglis were both taken from the field injured and given that I'm a big believer in 'These things happen in threes' I really feared for the safety and well being of the other Storm players out there. I wonder if Storm Coach Craig Bellamy made any frantic phone calls the QLD & NSW coaches in an attempt to get Cameron Smith, Ryan Hoffman & Matt King pulled out of the game... I think I would have. Luckily, they all survived unscathed.

  3. So, the season finale of Heroes was shown in Australia last night. It clashed with Origin so I taped Heroes preferring to watch Origin 'live'. Kids in bed - finally - and Origin over for another year we sat down to watch it and things looked pretty good for all of about 10 minutes. Unfortunately Heroes never returned after the ad break. WTF? Someone must have accidentally changed the Foxtel (cable) channel whilst it was recording and I'd ended up taping a repeat of Malcolm in the Middle. Doh! Time to thank Mr./Mrs./Miss Torrent - again - for making it possible to download everything and anything from the 'net.  Thank you.

  4. When did petrol reach $1.34 per litre???


Today's my first day back at work after a week off. It's been tough going, let me tell you. While I didn't do a whole heap in the first half of the week , the last 3.5 days I spent kidsitting my niece and nephew while their parents were away. Now I come to think about it, the kidsitting was a lot more work then my actual work. Perhaps I should look at this week as the 'holiday'.



Congratulations Andrew and Lisa - Thanks for my brand new niece.

Eloise Clare
was born during the wee hours of the morning on Saturday 26th May.

And shame on me. It's taken me five whole days to blog about it.

My 'AUNTY' Tally*:
Nieces: 5
Nephews: 1
* Does not include my 'Aunty Tristo' Tally.

No, I don't mean Kirrin Island... I mean Phillip Island.

We went down for the afternoon and guess what? It wasn't nearly as cold as I thought it would be. Yeah, thanks Lauz for organising that.

I just don't know where the time goes.
  1. Saturday we went to Ballarat for Adelaide's 'Bowling' Birthday Party. She had a whole bunch of her friends from school there... Lots of five year olds eating, bowling and generally having a good time. 

  2. After the party finished, we went to take a look at Lake Wendouree. Unfortunately, Lake Wendouree resembles less of a lake and more of a big dry paddock these days.  

  3. Happy Supernatural Day
