'The Gilmore Girls' is very giggle worthy. Otherwise:

Subject:Ah! Here's my de-confusion-iser
Time:10:02 pm.
Mood: dorky.
In the last week, I've been rehashing old favorite anime. 'Peach Girl' got a run through and now 'Escaflowne' is nearly done with. I think a large part of my next paycheck will go to a new anime series. Something like 'Scrapped Princess' or 'Wolfs Rain' maybe. Or 'The Young Ones'. Not anime, but giggle worthy.

------

And I'm trying to understand this situation with one of the guys at work. I think he's cute, my sister thinks he's cute, he looks like he's about mid to late 20's but he's actually 5 years younger than me. He's so easy to get along with, cracks me up, we talk about our relationships-gone-wrong and find ourselves thinking remarkably similar things and offering counsel to each other. When he makes his groan worthy jokes or pelts me with stock, I laugh. He scares the heck out of me by sneaking up on me and then I try to get him back. Making him laugh is the funnest thing ever. We won't be working together for about two weeks, and I actually feel that I might miss him.

It's strange. I don't know if I like him as a friend or more. If it's more, I shouldn't be with someone from work, he's going travelling soon and I don't want to date someone younger than me. I don't even know if he likes me, and it's gotta be creepy having an older woman crushing on you. Also, we have so little in common when it comes to extracurricular interests.

Subject:Wheehee
Time:5:07 pm.
Mood: drained.
I was so tired and out of it today that I got sent home from work. Last night I burned my first food item other than toast in more than 10 years and managed to stab my finger on a security tag pin so deeply that I had to pull it out of my skin. I'm going to bed very shortly.

Subject:And I think...
Time:9:27 pm.
Mood: groggy.
My body is about to pack it in. Somehow I think that the six and seven day weeks, no consecutive two days off and having to work one week at a place I like and one week at a place I don't like is finally getting to me.

My skin is a mess, my body is beginning to react to everything and I'm getting so tired by 9 pm that I can barely operate. Most of my days are being spent in a haze of unshakable tiredness. And I'm getting unbearably hungry all the time.

Things have to change. And using sedatives so I can get sleep while the boys party is just making things worse, maybe.

On a positive note, I recently managed a three day weekend where I went to Sydney, went to the Sydney Aquarium, Chinese Gardens, spent time with my bro and his girlfriend, ate lots, attended a 'Serenity' convention, attended a ballet performance, ate more awesome food and visited the Powerhouse Museum. Ron Glass seems like a very interesting man and Nathan Fillion is very funny and likes making lame jokes. :P

Time:8:36 pm.
Mood: cranky.
Not liking my boss. She promises to give me time off for something I want to attend, and then gives me only half the needed time off. So I won't be able to go...

Subject:A sad time indeed...
Time:1:25 am.
Mood: sad.
Since I can't settle down and sleep, I will report some sad news that I have stumbled upon, two years late.

In 2006, a 6 week search in the Yangtze river showed no sign of the Baiji, the Chinese River Dolphin. It has thus been concluded that the dolphin is most likely extinct. This leaves the Vaquita the next most endangered of the small cetaceans.

Subject:Corny TV Addict
Time:9:09 pm.
Mood: calm.
Is what I've become I think. I've fallen in love with 'Torchwood' now.

Have ordered 'Tru Calling' (what? Eliza Dushku is hot...).

Want to watch 'Heroes'.

'Veronica Mars' seems fun and I need to actually watch it.

That 'Moonlight' show looks mildly interesting, but am not sure if it's worth the effort.

Add that to the current list of:

'Scrubs
'Firefly'
'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'
'Angel'

And certain movies that will remain un-named I think it's a fair case. But I loves it!

Next box sets on the list are 'Kaleido Star', which I've been wanting to watch for so long and 'Princess Tutu' just because I likes it.

Subject:Oh, so you don't want that testicle?
Time:9:13 pm.
Mood: pissed off.
Cause J is going to lose it... or both. Depending on how badly he's lost my poi. If they're still in his house and it takes under 20 minutes to find, I won't completely destroy them. If I have to put up with his dad for any longer they're both coming off. I forgave him for spilling 'V' on my 'Fruits Basket' DVDs, am slowly forgiving him for losing my kitchen utensils, but damn it, the poi was too far!

Time:11:49 pm.
Mood: weird.
I've only just now started wishing for parents for whom their worst drama is not getting along with their siblings for superficial reasons.

There isn't a time that I remember wishing for 'normal' parents, I just accepted and lamented mine being so messed up. Weird.

There's just something wrong with having to point out to a fully graduated and employed zoologist that if every baby of every cute or tragic species was to survive, then there is no way the earth could support that amount of life. Yes, even if you took humans out of the equation.

According to the blood test, I'm HSV free. Yay. Please let it be completely on the ball.

Looks like it's time to have endometriosis looked at. I keep forgetting which direction is up, and was groaning in pain even while lying down or moving around. At the markets I kept looking at any free space and thinking that I could just lie down there for a moment.

The new job thing isn't working out for me again, which is kinda annoying. I think the job I had from September 2006 to October 2007 kinda spoiled me for anywhere else. :P There is no regretting going on, I loved my time there, it advanced my career and when I left it was the right time to go. The next job right after that turned out to be a disappointment, which was sad, but I need a work environment where I'm recognised as me, not just another brainless part-timer who needs to have everything explained to them. So I got the next job, which seemed like a dream but had similar problems to the previous. Plus they pushed me back to casual a couple of days before Christmas, which landed me in money drama because of all those public holidays. So I have my current job, in retail again, assistant managing which is what I wanted because I enjoy the challange. The issue being my hours and wasting time I could be using far more productively. Permanent part-time in my experience usually required the part-timer coming in to work a set number of hours a week on set days. Usually full days.

Instead I find myself sometimes working 32 hours a week over 5 days. The contract saying that I can work anything from 12 - 32 hours a week and I only get paid managers rates on the day that the manager isn't physically there. And yet, even if she is there, I'm expected to still act as a manager. I feel a bit ripped off. After being paid a reasonable amount per week, this is hard to live on, even though I've lived on a lot less. I would be happy working the 32 hours if it was over 4 days and then I could do volunteer work or have a second job to take up the slack, but when you work for 5 hours smack bang in the middle of the day, well, there goes just about anything I could volunteer or work for that doesn't involve food...

Maybe it really is time I stopped working in retail.

I went to Underwater World for my birthday and had fun. I even went on the behind the scenes tour, which isn't great but will hopefully get better with time. It was interesting though, there were sick turtles, a short lecture on how UWW does it's water intake and shark egg cases and newly hatched turtles. Plus we got to see the top of the shark tank where one of the whalers displayed itself for us as well as one of the grey nurses sticking her dorsal fin out of the water. It made me happy. :) Plus I got to speak to one of the Biologists there who had just completed his PhD. He's a shark nerd and I got to talk his ear off about all sorts of shark things that I was curious about. We even talked longer than the duration of the tour. He gave me study advice, like doing volunteer work, and told me some stuff about PhD's and research funding. We both had things to say about 'Seaworld' and told me the differences he'd noticed in volunteering for them and UWW. He told me where I could grab forms for volunteer work, wished me luck and shook my hand on the way out. :)

Communication skill-wise, I somehow managed to give the impression to my friends that not wanting to do anything for my birthday like dinner or gatherings translated to 'don't act like it's my birthday at all'. It surprised me that it actually hurt that no one even said happy birthday to me when I got home, I even got depressed about it. Dad and my sister called with well wishes, and when it came to the conversation with Dad I set him straight with a misconception he's had about me for years. My step-mother didn't talk to me as usual, which I'm relieved about (she never wished me 'happy birthday' unless I'm there in person). I don't like being around her in person for my birthday, since she gets a bit defensive and the subject that my birthday is inconvenient for her still comes up occasionally.

Subject:I was wondering...
Time:9:59 am.
Mood: confused.
Is it wrong to ask a 14-15 year old to start paying board and pay for petrol used in collecting them and dropping them off to work when they first start working?

And, is paying $100 board per week when you start working after high school a bad thing?

Also, is it considered unfair to have your just turned 18 year old to pay $230 a week board when it happens to be the exact rent of the house?

Lastly, is it cruel to be asked to think about moving out of home 2 months into your first, brand new job? Reason being your parents say that they got used to living without you when they moved away while you finished high school and they never got time before to be a couple because you and your sister were always there?

Subject:Holy terrifying space monkeys!
Time:1:41 am.
Mood: pissed off.
Oh my God! I just found out that most of the windows in the sun room were wide open. Why didn't anyone let me know?! We just had people wandering the streets casing our house. From the sounds of it, the voices were right outside the room concerned, or my window. And from the sounds of it, they were even on our front porch. When I was closing the windows, they were even loudly observing my actions from the street. Heads are going to roll. I am so very pissed off right now, plus I'm freaked out. Heck I had the adrenaline jitters before! Good bye to sleep for the night...

Subject:Tripod
Time:2:24 pm.
Mood: chipper.
My friends introduced me to the comedy band 'Tripod' a couple of months ago. They even played some of the songs to me when I was recovering from the wisdom teeth removal (the bastards!). Verdict? Tripod are so darn funny I really cannot stay upright as I become paralysed from laughter.

Oh pooh. I think I might possibly have a melanoma on my left trapezoid. It really hurts.

Subject:Feel the love peoples!
Time:8:18 pm.
Mood: bouncy.
Group text message sent out to the people I spend time with at the festive time of the year: 'My schedule has cleared up people. Nine shifts in three weeks.'

My step-mother's reply: 'So get another job.'

Don't you just feel all squishy?
