☀ Happy Pancake Day. Does everyone have Pancake Day on Shrove Tuesday? I think I read somewhere it may just be an Australian/UK thing...


☀ Work!bff and I hosted morning tea today in honour of Pancake Day. I brought in pancakes and cream, jam, Nutella, choc chips, lemon, sugar, and sprinkles. Needless to say, we didn't need any lunch.


☀ Spotted in Melbourne this afternoon. One bus with My Bloody Valentine 3D advertising:

Q: What is wrong with this picture?
Hint: In Australia MBV3D is rated R18+ (Restricted) - People under 18 may not buy, rent or exhibit these films.


☀ Inspired by yesterday's Oscars and waiting for the final episode of Leverage today/tomorrow, I'm currently watching Ordinary People (1980) with a very, very young Timothy Hutton. You might be surprised who else is in it. Surprise! )

☀ Last but not least, I'm sorry. I've been kind of MIA this past week or so. Motivation is at an all time low for me at the moment. Motivation to do anything. I haven't even taken any photos of the little gremlin this week for Winchester Wednesday tomorrow. Blah... )
On my own at work today. It's almost the end of my lunch break and I've spent the past hour watching this week's Leverage, answering LJ comments and eating a roast beef with Salt & Vinger chip sandwich.

Now I've just got to make it through the afternoon before I leave at about 6:00PM to go meet team!shortbus at 7:30PM. We are seeing My Bloody Valentine 3D at 9:30PM.

I don't think I've been this excited about a movie since... since... since forever! Of course, I'm excited about seeing Team!Shortbus too because it's been forever since I've seen those girls! Forever or, you know, October (or November) last year. ;)

Today wasn't the best Tuesdays in the history of Tuesdays but it did have it's highlights.

[livejournal.com profile] munibunny sent me a copy of A Christmas Cottage and it arrived today! \O/ I haven't had a chance to watch it yet but I'm hoping to on Thursday. ♥

★ Worf!bff and I were somewhat rebellious at work today and decided for one reason or another, we deserved an extra long lunch. It's been tough on work!bff... You know, having to work and all after two weeks holiday. We got back to our desks a little after we should have... a big little after we should have. ;)

★ During lunch work!bff was telling me how he is addicted to a game on Facebook called 'Guess the Sketch'. It's like Pictionary and players take it in turns to guess what another player is drawing.

This afternoon, we decided to play our own version of the game.

Of course, it ended up being all about Supernatural )

★ In between long lunches and playing 'Pictionary' I did actually get some work done. I'm not a complete slacker...

★ Happy Tuesday!

Today's post is brought to you at the all-new early time of 6:00PM.

Except to me, 6:00pm it late because I'm still stuck at work. I've been here since 7:50am and now I'm waiting on someone to assign something back to me before I can leave. Because I didn't want to waste my time and I wanted to use it productively, I've been reading my flist. You may even see the odd comment from me! \O/ *facepalm*

I'm pretty much on my own for the next two weeks while work!bff is taking holidays. There is a third person who 'works' with us but, yeah, ... let's just say I'm pretty much on my own. It's been a busy few days and I don't think it's going to let up any time soon.

Yesterday morning I did get find about 20 minutes to start decorating the Christmas Tree for my desk. It's a work in progress but here's a sneak peek..



No photos of Winnie to share today but perhaps I'll post tomorrow and start a tradition of 'Hey, Wednesday! Winchester!' Or, you know, not... :)

This is quite possible to fasted LJ entry I've ever done. Any spelling or grammatical errors are entirely mine.

Happy Tuesday!
I'm on my own today. The other two members of my team are working from home. The fourth person who sits in our area is also away.

No dramas there. I can work listening to The Hooters on my iPod. I can occasionally check LJ. I can go get noodles from Noodle Box for lunch. It's all good.

But.

On my side of the office there are approximately 40 seats all of which are taken because there are two people being forced to sit in a walkway! A quick count of those 40 seats tells me only about 16 people are actually in the office today. 16!!! That's not even half. *sigh*

What I want to know is, when did showing up to work become an optional extra?

Disclaimer: Yep, I may be a little bitter because besides 'not wanting to go into the office' I have no legitimate reason not to go into office. ;)

Believe it or not I did actually get some work done while I was on my own in the office yesterday but my mind insisted on wandering a little bit during the quieter times. More specifically, it insisted on wandering to Supernatural related stuffs--I'm shocked at this unforseen turn of events!--and I got thinking about 4x04 and Dean's use of a particular nickname. It seems to have caused a little controversy with some people thinking it's kind of adorable while others think it should never be spoken of again.

Well, here's my take on it. Sort of.
Warning: Contains spoilers for Superatural 4x04



Did you really just call me 'Cas'? )



In other news--Jared and Jensen are going to be in Sydney, Australia, for a HUB Convention in April 2009! OMG! *does happy dance*
Team!Shortbus - Can we skip the movie that weekend and go see the boys instead? Please? :D

1) Melbourne Storm are into the 2008 NRL GRAND FINAL! \O/



I was so nervous going into last week's game and I spent the entire week telling everyone we were going to get thrashed. Imagine my surprise when we beat the Cronulla Sharks 28-ZERO!!! o_O I just hope the same team shows up for the Grand Final...

The game is in Sydney which is approximately 1000kms (620 miles) away from Melbourne. You know what that means? ROAD TRIP!!! I'm driving up with Emma and Dan on Saturday. I can't wait. \O/


2) Work!bff and I got a whiteboard put up near our desk (for work purposes) and because everything really does lead back to Supernatural...
I Supernatural'd it with my mad artistic skills... )


3) Our Footy Final Fiesta at work went down a treat last Friday. About 13 people joined in the handball competition, a few more ate the food, and the winner of the 'Pick the Margin' competition took home a cool $48! :) It made for an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so.

Work!bff and I were the only ones who ended up decorating our desks. And because I decorated mine in Storm colours, I get to leave it up for at least another week.
See... )


4) Happy Tuesday!

☀ I've been a bad LJ friend lately. I'm so sorry about that. :( I've read all your posts but haven't had a chance to comment. Expect me to pop in and randomly comment to your posts from the past four or five days, 'k. :)


☀ I've only got three or four more days of house sitting left and then I'm back home with a regular internet connection. \O/ I'll be able to see photo and icon posts, and videos, and all those good things I've been missing out on for the past 7 weeks. Yay!


☀ Melbourne Storm are still in the NRL Finals. But I think we used our 'Get out of Jail Free' card... )


☀ Friday morning at work we are having a 'Footy Finals Fiesta'. Nice alliteration, hey... )


☀ I discovered plurk today. I've seen [livejournal.com profile] whimsywinx and [livejournal.com profile] bananabehr talking about and since I was at work by myself today so I thought I'd take a little look. *is sneaky* Verdict: Fun and possibly addictive. As if I need another distraction on the internet... I can't even keep up with LJ! Thanks [livejournal.com profile] whimsywinx and [livejournal.com profile] bananabehr for making me feel welcome over there. :)


☀ Have we all recovered from 4x01 yet? Only two more sleeps until 4x02!!!


☀ Happy Tuesday!

( Sep. 10th, 2008 07:20 am)



1). Single figures, dudes! We've reached single figures! Only 9 sleeps.


2). It's 7:22AM on Wednesday morning. My plan for today was to get to work early so I could leave a bit earlier than usual this afternoon. So far so good.


3). It's 7.24AM on Wednesday. Did I miss any significant J2 news while I was sleeping?


4). Happy *insert appropriate day of the week here*!





1). I'm on my own at work today. There's other people in the office (it's a big office!) but there's noone else from my team. It looks like it's shaping up to be a day of listening to Steve, Christian, Brian, Alison & Robert, and Kid Rock on the iPod.


2). Kyle XY tonight. \O/ I've been looking forward to it all week!


3). Now the DVDs have been officially released, does that mean S3 Gag Reel Icons are no longer considered spoilerish and we can use/post them freely?


4). Happy Wednesday! Thursday! Oops, looks like I don't even know what day of the week it is...




1). It's my turn to provide morning tea at work tomorrow. I decided to do what I did last time - mini sausage rolls, brownies and mini muffins. Sounds easy enough, right? Yeah, no. Not when you're making them in an unfamiliar kitchen. I found most of what I needed except scales. As a result I think I put way too much chocolate in the brownies. Oops!


2). Not sure if I've mentioned it, but I'm a bit of a country music fan. It's not something we hear a lot of in Australia but we do have Country Music Channel on paytv which I have on. A lot. In addition to playing country music they've taken it upon themselves to bring us Pro Bull Riding. I watched it tonight... )


3). Happy Supernatural Season Three DVD Day!

★ Enjoy your purchase.
★ If needs be, don't forget to rearrange those shelves at the store to ensure the Supernatural box sets have prime position; Eye level would be ideal *nods*
★ Try not to wear the discs out on day one.
★ And what ever you do, don't scratch the duco on those shiny little Impalas!


4). Not sure what's going on with me posting so much. Sorry. *headdesk*

or at least it was this morning. Turns out the weather was just taunting me because by lunchtime the sky was full of clouds and by this evening it was raining. So much for the first day of Spring. Ha!


1). I had to move desks at work today. More people are moving on to our floor so we've been shuffled around to make room for them. We didn't have to move far - just to the next 'pod' of four desks - but it has made me feel all disoriented. I'm sitting with my back to the world now. I'm sure I'll get used to it soon enough.

I've already made myself at home - Click for pics )


2). Random Advice: Don't try to download songs from iTunes via a dial-up connection. I've been trying to download Brian McFadden's Twisted and it's taking forever. 12 minutes and counting...


3). I'm watching an old episode of Bones and I have to say Bones looks pretty good as Wonder Woman. Also, besides being tall, dark and handsome, Booth and Sam Winchester have something in common; They both suffer from coulrophobia. *nods* (Is David Boreanz tall? I have no idea...)


4). Melbourne Storm lost on the weekend. )


5). 18 Sleeps til Supernatural 4x01.


TUESDAY - THE GOOD, THE BAD & THE PRETTY

The Good.

  • No Pig 'n a Poke special for breakfast but my work!bff and I did have pizza for lunch. In the cafe downstairs from work you can make your own pizza. Anything goes but I usually stick with cheese, onion, red capsicum, ham, pineapple and more cheeeeeese! You can never have too much cheese. *nods*

  • While munching on our lunch of Pizza, my work!bff and I discussed The West Wing and on our way home from work we discussed Supernatural. Well, actually it was more like I talked no-stop about Supernatural while he listened and asked appropriate questions. *grin*

  • My download of The Wonder Years - Season Two finally finished. It only took four very long days...

  • I'm currently watching episode 2x07 of The Wonder Years.

The Bad.

  • Apparently I almost set the smoke alarms off while cooking my pizza for lunch. Ooops. Perhaps you can have such a thing as too much cheeeeeese. ;)

  • It was a work day. That's not really that bad but certainly not as good as a non-work day.

  • I had to go to the Dentist. Also not that bad since it was only a check up, however, I did receive a large bill to pay. *sigh*

  • I had at least 2000 items in my LJ inbox. Did you know the counter stops counting at 2000? I just can't can't seem to get into the habit of reading stuff via the inbox and deleting it once I'm done. *sigh*

The Pretty. )

Happy Tuesday.

( May. 14th, 2008 02:27 pm)
1). This morning I found out I am working for a different company to the one I was working for yesterday. Surprise! *sigh*

2). Morning Tea was a success. It was hijacked slightly as a chance for our manager to discuss the takeover with us and answer any questions. I think the food helped smooth things over. *nods*

3). Apparently I did a great job with something here at work yesterday except for the part where I did it all wrong. *sigh*

4). It's payday tomorrow and normally my pay gets deposited into my account around lunch time the previous day. That would be today. However, it's now 3:37pm and no pay. I didn't think to ask in the meeting this morning if the new company would still pay us. *jokes... she hopes*
EDIT: Huzzah! It's all good. Told you I was joking :)

5). How's everyone's Wendesday going?

Tags:
I'm having such a blah week. *sigh* So blah, I can't even think of a better word to use than blah. I've slept in both days, struggled to get out of bed and struggled to get anything productive done at work. At all. Seeing it's the end of the month, and I have a tonne of stuff to get done, my blahness has not come at the best time.

It hasn't been all bad, I guess. After all, today is Pig 'n a Poke Tuesday and what is better than that? Except perhaps Supernatural Thursday... and, btw, there's only three sleeps to go until the new episode. Yay!

And today, despite my lateness this morning, my work!bff and I had an extra long lunch, got back to work late and then we left early for the day. Flexitime FTW!

And right now I'm eating vanilla ice-cream with mini!m&ms, watching EP1X05 of Friday Night Lights and I've just cranked up Photoshop, gettting ready to make some supernatural!icons.

It seems to me, if I could just get around the little detail of actually having to work and figure out a way of having endless lunches and spending the rest of my time catching up with awesome TV shows I've somehow missed and fiddling about with Photoshop, my life would be pretty much perfect. :)

Happy Tuesday folks!

We had our work 'Christmas Lunch' yesterday. I know! It's only November!

Lunch was a Buffet at The Conservatory Lounge at Crown Casino. All the food was pretty good but the bestest thing was they had one of the chocolate fountain thingies. OMG! I could have just gone back for bowl after bowl of that. Unfortunately, I think I'm coming down of the sugar-high this evening.

After lunch we, minus a few party-poopers, went ten-pin bowling. I'm kind of paying for it today with a sore arm and being a bit stiff. I'm a terrible bowler so I won't be sharing my scores *hangs head in shame* but it was a lot of fun. We have such a mixed bunch of people at work and don't usually do stuff like this together but it was a great way to spend the afternoon.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to all of you celebrating the holiday today.
If you could possibly squeeze it in, please have an extra piece of Pumpkin Pie for me!

  1. I've had a busy and down right crappy week at work which goes a long way to explaining the lack of journal postage this week. You know, it's been one of those weeks where everything everyone does kind of pisses you off because everything everyone does is kind of stoopid? Yeah, okay, so I'm being a grouch. I really would love to be Little Miss Sunshine ALL the time. But, yeah, that's just not me.

  2. Yesterday, I signed up for missing_spn. I have this idea in my head about what it is I want to do, and now, I've just got to figure out how to do it. The challenge ends October 3, so I have a little under a month to get my shit together. *is nervous* Damn, my momentary lapses of sanity. *g*

  3. Hey, that means it's also less than a month to the Season 3 premiere. Are we all excited? The first episode stills have been released here. Yeah, I took a little peek. So much for being 'Spoiler Free in Season 3', 'eh?

  4. Steve Carlson wants me at his gig, in LA, again this Saturday night. I really hate having to turn him down all the time... *sighs* Whilst on the subject of Steve Carlson, those KANE CDs I got last week, TOTALLY rock. Especially the Live album.

  5. 'Hairspray' starts here next week. Should I go see it? YES/NO

  6. I'm about two-thirds of the way through SUPERNATURAL: Nevermore, and, oooh boy, do I have questions. At the moment the book looks like one of my text books from school. It has random Post-Its stuck to pages where I've had serious WTF! moments, and to be fair, even a few FTW!, moments. I'll be finished with it tomorrow so hopefully I'll be able to put some coherent words together about it.

  7. I had my hair cut tonight. Seriously chopped. I've had about two inches off and I now have little bangs. *gulp* I haven't had bangs for about three years. Not sure about it yet but I'll hold judgement until I've washed it and styled it myself.

  8. Friday tomorrow \o/
or Hey, Hey, It's Waffle Day.

1). Seems I started something last week when I took waffles into work. I received a request late yesterday afternoon for more waffles, and lots of them.


2). For my retro viewing pleasure, while making waffles, I decided to watch the X-Files episode, "Bad Blood". It's the episode where Mulder 'overreacts' and kills a vampire. Well, he thinks it's vampire at the time but then it appears it may have just been a regular guy. In an attempt to get their stories straight, Scully and Mulder take turns in telling their versions of events that led to Mulder's 'overreaction'.  It reminds me so much of the Supernatural episode, "Tall Tales". Or rather, "Tall Tales" reminds me so much of "Bad Blood."


3). Tonight Melbourne Storm play the Bulldogs, in Sydney. If When they win this game, Storm are guaranteed to finish the season at the top of the ladder. The Minor Premiership, two years in a row. Whoo hoo! *crosses fingers for a win*

UPDATE: Bulldogs 6 Melbourne Storm 38
MELBOURNE STORM ARE THE 2007 MINOR PREMIERS!!!


4). Daily Peak Hour Observation: On this morning's drive in, I saw a registration plate, PWT ###. It was just your standard type rego plate, but, regardless, my first thought was, 'A personalised Plastic!Winchester!Theater number plate! Ace!' *facepalm*
( May. 21st, 2007 10:16 am)
Got my PC at work upgraded to XP over the weekend... FINALLY. It's been a long time coming.

Just checking to make sure the important things work:

Internet - CHECK
