question of the day LOL

has anybody heard anything good about the hematite bracelets? It's supposed to work like the copper one's, in that it helps with pain etc. One of my quirks is a natural aversion to medication, if you saw me trying to take a tablet/pill etc you would die laughing. I have tried all the tricks. nada. It always takes 10 mins to get one down, even tiny one's LOL So, if something I don't have to swallow works, hey, I'm all for it. I was looking at these bracelets that apparently help reduce blood pressure,cholesterol and pain, they're a bit exxy though.

Nothing else to say, I've been pretty busy doing nothing at all.

Added:I have no idea why this didn't post the 1st time around. weird.

Absolutely shameful!

This is just disgusting. At least Qantas gave a toss and helped him out.

Bungle leaves Digger lost in airport | NSW/ACT | Breaking News 24/7 - (22-07-2005): "A BUNGLE by the Department of Veterans Affairs left a 91-year-old Digger wandering lost in Sydney airport in his pyjamas, days after major surgery.
Norm Cuthill, from Port Macquarie on the New South Wales North coast, was supposed to have been driven to the airport in an ambulance last Monday, six days after having surgery at Fairfield Private Hospital to remove a cyst from a collapsed lung. "

For some reason today, I am verrrrrrrrry tired & all my joints have blown up. So tired I can't sleep & moving is way too much effort. I feel like I'm walking around with weights on :-(

I don't know whether it's the new drug the Dr gave me or if I'm having a mini flare or what the hell is wrong. I feel the way I did before they reset my immune system and I really feel like shit. Blah.

Anyway, enough moaning...
I love ebay :-)
I won a Max bike replica on ebay & got it yesterday. It's in mint cond and they're worth around $100 upwards and I got it for $17- *g*

I also got some emu feathers to make some new quills. I just made a new batch of ink from gum tree branches, it turned out a really gorgeous inky black, so I might keep them and give them away for birthday presents. or not. heh. I might keep it all to myself. LOL

I've also nearly finished BQ2's 16th birthday present. She's a gothlet in training, so I've made her a blank book with a leather cover and black/dk purple beading sewn onto the leather cover with really cool clasps. The whole thing is black, with black pages and really gothic looking, so I'm pretty sure she'll like it. I'm going to add in some gold & silver ink & an emu quill, then I have to start on everyone's Christmas presents.

Well, I am off to lay down for an hour and read a book.

PS. For the person who wanted it, here's my email addy. It's a graphic, so you can't click to email me.

Oh boy!

I think I have had every single moronic driver in Melbourne either directly before me or after me today. One idiot overtook me & then cut me off turning into the street 10 metres down the bloody road. Luckily, when I drove through later, when he was holding the stop/slow sign for the roadworks there, I resisted the temptation! Obviously he was late for work and needed to get there 5 secs earlier than if he had stayed behind me doing the actual speed limit. People pulling out to the right to turn left [and vice versa] or pulling out as if I'm invisible. Hello, big red car here! Bloody idiots.

BQ2 had her email & MSN Mgr hacked by some of her *friends* yesterday. After I reset the pw's they did it again. Sadly for them, I have their IP addy's now *g* They read the note I left in there for them, so I wonder how well they slept last night and if they jump at the knock on the door for a couple of days LOL One of them has been very friendly to BQ2 today. The IT dept at school is also investigating their logs as they did it first at school.
Little shits! 15/16 yr old females are such little cows. I'm positive I was never that bad *vewg* hmmm, I don't think my Mum would agree. heh.

I must be off, I have a 10 yr old back from camp to collect. I'm sure he's itching to get back home [to watch cartoons, not cos he's missed his Mum]

'Ooroo cobbers!

My baby is all growned up :-( Yoda is going to his first school camp on Monday. Yesterday he learnt how to make cups of coffee/tea [ I wouldn't let him so he conned BQ2 into teaching him] and he knows how to operate essential appliances like the microwave, dvd,tv and the fox box *g* Oh yeah, and much to his Grandad's disgust, a hairdryer LOL. I am now obsolete.

Added later : We've just done the run for Harry Potter. Do you know how freaking cold it is outside? meh. next time the kid can go get her bloody own!
Altho, she did make me a cup of tea when we got back. I did notice one odd thing though, many new cars driving around have either no tail lights or only one. Very strange.

I actually sat and watched a movie tonight, Queen Latifah comedy called Taxi. I must have liked it cos I sat there the whole time not doing anything else *g*

I am still dangerous with sharp objects. 2 stitch thingies in my index finger and I'll have to redo the page :-( I did manage to find some more thick scratchboard after 2 years of looking. I love working with it but it's a pita to find the thick sheets.
Well, I'm off to make glair & garlic juice [for gilding] so I'll cya's later.

I just got my test results back from the Dr, for the first time in 15 years NO abnormal cells! YAHOO! No more surgery,no more biopsies, no more crappy drugs. I only have to go back once a year now. 2 separate tests showed normal cells. I am totally gobsmacked.

My AN factor is still high, but pretty good compared to what it has been like. He thinks this remission should last a while before I have another flare and the chances are they will only be small one's. So, for a change, I got GOOD news from the Dr, I can't remember how long that has been. PA is not fatal, so right now, I am so happy I am bouncing off the walls *g*

Big happy hugs to everyone.

My life is never going to be the same again...

BattleQueen3 wants a drum kit. A 5 pce drum kit, you know, crashing cymbals and loud banging sounds LOL

Luckily though, she takes after me in musical taste and not her father. He only likes pop music, if it isn't in the top 40, he hates it. I call it pop tart music as most of is titsout and bouncing, if you know what I mean ;-)

I'm more of a Queen, Bon Jovi, Skyhooks,Robbie Williams fan etc I love Aussie rock and 80's music and I do like most other music,but they're my favourite. My current cd of choice in the car is Adam Thompson's [Chocolate Starfish] album RECONNECTED.

Yoda loves Pop goes the Planet from it & that's the current song we sing on the way home from school in the car. I am totally tone deaf, so we turn the speakers up so noone can hear us murder the song *g*

I listen to yahoo launchcast a lot during the day, Made in Australia or one of the rock stations.

If you ever hear reggae mixed with bagpipes or the Lord of the Dance sound track with taps at full blast, say hi to me :-)

It's a mystery...

"You need more self confidence!"

This phrase is the one I hear the most in my life. How do you get more self confidence? Go pick some up at the supermarket? or on Ebay?
How will I know when I have enough?

kharma is a bitch

I just watched a guy get bitch slapped by kharma and I am still cackling with glee. We went to see my Nana today [she's 95 on Wed] in Queenscliff then dropped by to see MIL & FIL on the way back, as it was so late by the time we got back home we stopped to get a chook & salad at the local supermarket.

We parked in the first spot next to the disabled area. RCK went in & a couple of minutes later this red sports car comes flying in beside us in the disabled spot, guy jumps out and runs to the bottle shop.
So, I'm thinking, Wow, that guy sure can move for someone who's disabled! I'm looking at his windscreen at a piece of paper trying to see if it's a disabled parking sticker. Cop car parks in front of his car, just as he comes running back out with a carton ROFLMAO So, he's getting a ticket for parking illegally in a disabled zone. The piece of paper I was looking at? heh. a canary.
They were radioing for a tow truck just as we left. I hope that carton feels really heavy while he's walking home MUWAHAHA! I love watching kharma in action.

I managed to find 3 Mills & Boons romances which matched the strict criteria I was given for Nana's birthday present -:

a/ No red one's [ they have sex in them & Nana hates those one's, she is 95 after all ]
b/ HAVE to be Doctor & Nurse one's [her favourites]
c/ Has to be the thin books not the thick one's as she has trouble holding them.
I won't tell you how many newsagents I had to go to before I found them. No wonder I don't like reading them. She loved them :-)
