The 'Getting to Know You Meme'.
Tagged (by default) by [ profile] annella


The one which appears on my birth certificate. It's not short of anything. I haven't forgotten the 'h'. It's Katie with a 'Y'.

User/screen name and nickname given to me by my mum. It makes more sense if you know my middle name is Samantha.

Nickname which came about on a road trip I took with one of my rl!bffs back in 1999. At the time, Tristo (or more accurately, Tristan) was a player for our favourite sporting club, Melbourne Storm. A fictional conversation between Lisa and I, pretending to me Matty Geyer (another player) and Tristan Brady Smith, lead to me being called Tristo and Lisa being called Matty. For some reason, Tristo stuck. It could be because I often refer to myself as 'Tristo' in the third person. Or it might not. :) Even Lisa's three year old son, Ryan, and his three year old cousin, Campbell, call me Tristo. Well, Aunty Tristo. :P

I probably wasn't meant to be sharing this much detail, was I? Nevermind, I'm redefining the rules of this meme! Read more...  )

I really wanted to share this little video with you.

On Sunday night Lisa, Scott, their son Ryan, Trent, Carolyn,their son Campbell, Emma and I went to see Australia beat England 52-4 in the Rugby League World Cup game played in Melbourne. Ryan, who is 2.5 years old, loves watching rugby league but I think his favourite part of the game is the singing of the Australian National Anthem before kick off. Sorry, it's a little hard to hear him because of the crowd noise but I still think it's adorable.

The Australian National Anthem - Advance Australia Fair - performed by Ryan, aged 2.5

Advance Australia Fair Lyrics ... so you can follow or sing along ;)
Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in Nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history's page, let every stage
Advance Australia fair!
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia fair!

1). 8 Sleeps! ^The boys are getting ready for the premiere^. Whoo hoo!

2). I have the best friends ever! [ profile] munibunny got me something very special and it arrived yesterday. You've probably all seen a million pics of one of these but I couldn't resist showing off my very own mini!Impala.

My new set of wheels...  )

3. More on the subject of 'best friends ever' - I want to thank you all.

[ profile] missyjack got me a little sentimental yesterday with her post here. Days like yesterday made me realise how ace it is to be able to log on to LJ and share the joy and excitement of little things like J2 moving in together, or getting a new Hot Wheels Car, or fandom related art with all of you guys, knowing that you will experience just as much joy and excitement, and that you wont think I'm a complete and utter crackpot. THANK YOU! ♥

Where I ramble some more... )

4. Yesterday I was a little early for work. Today I'm going to be a little late. Ooops.

5. Happy *insert day of the week here*!

3). Team!Shortbus, aka. [ profile] bobbinrob, [ profile] chasingangel82, [ profile] rip_67, [ profile] rose_jance and [ profile] ragingquiet26, get together in Melbourne tomorrow. \O/ We're going to see a movie and there will probably be pancakes and [ profile] bobbinrob may even put one on her head.

4). Last night I worked out how to make animated icons in Photoshop/ImageReady using video files. You were so right [ profile] bobbinrob - It's so much easier than using screenshots.

5). [ profile] bobbinrob. Because mentioning her three times in one post just isn't enough. ;)

6). Happy *insert appropriate day-of-the-week here*! ;)

... however, due to restraints set by the folks at Customs (and/or not knowing your address) you might have to settle for a photo.
It is the thought that counts, right? *wink*

Happy Birthday

I hope you have the BEST. DAY. EVA!


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... )
A short long MEME I picked up from [ profile] munibunny's journal.
