Anyone want a Vox invite? I have some.
Email me.

I have finally gotten rid of the damn bug! Talk about being sat on your ass. I finally feel as if the truck that parked on my chest has moved on. LOL

So, have done absolutely zero this past week. Boring.

Hey Dragonsand! I emailed you :-) I removed your post cos you might get spammed.

I have been sick with the same virus the kids had. So, I've been lounging in bed, watching tv, ignoring housework and reading books. I'm grumpy cos I feel so crappy. Got the laptop working again [Please, don't ask, I'll get even more grumpy]

It's times like this I miss Townsville winters.

I don't normally watch a lot of tv and would be quite happy without one. However, with the recent bout of illness in the house I have been watching weird crap in the wee hours.
Of course, I had to watch the World Cup like all good Aussie citizens and while watching that discovered the Tour de France when Ch31 stopped playing the fishy thing with music. Who knew a bike race could be so exciting? I'd always thought it would be extremely boring but it's not. Between the breakaways, the sprinters and the peloton chasing them, it's almost nailbiting to see who will cross the line first and if anyone will crash or get a flat tyre.

To all those doubters, it's a lot better than watching the endless repeats of the inane Infomercials at least :-)

Did I tell you I got a new Razr? hehehe. Sorry, I always only ever had a basic mobile until then, so I love my new phone with it's bells & whistles, such a pretty shiny thing. I can even set multiple alarms, so I don't have to remember to reset the alarm each time to do things like get up, pick kidlets up from school or remind me to stop hunching over something I'm working on.

I don't have to pay for ringtones anymore or fiddle around in composer hitting the wrong keys & torturing perfectly good tunes. So, I have put mp3 snippets on as my ringtones, I have 2 I use at the moment, both from Adam Thompson's RECONNECTED cd, She's a Machine and Electric Jesus and Yes, I have permission to use them [so snoopy spy companies, stick that in your pipe.] I even worked out how to put the album cover on as my wallpaper.
Did I mention I love my new phone? heh.

Apart from that, I have done nothing all weekend except sit on my butt watching tv, reading and beading. Tomorrow, I work & battle the beauracrats.

Hugz Bugz!

The Virus from hell arrived, the cold variety, thankfully! So everyone has been sniffling their way around for the last few weeks. The whole house smells of eucalyptus from the vaporiser and Eucy Bear rub. Strangely, of all things Mr Fussy Eater [11] loves Ginger tea, so he sits rugged up on the couch with chicken noodle soup, ginger tea and a good book and is in bliss. LOL Yes, I know. He does watch cartoons as well, so he's not that strange but he prefers to read rather than watch tv.

In work news, I have returned to doing print & web design for small businesses, so I have been flat chat with work. I didn't really want to go back into the print side but economic reasons have made it so that I'd be a complete idiot if I didn't. I've also been teaching myself gilding on glass, which is similiar to the gilding I already do, except it's glass rather than paper. It is similiar to working on scratchboard as you work in reverse, so it hasn't really been that hard for me to do. I'm also making each kidlet a necklet and so teaching myself the art of beading. I already sort of do beading with/on my bookcovers, so this is just a different form.

Stringing beads is good physio for my hands & wrists too, so wonder if I could claim the costs as a medical deduction? [ I'm only joking! I know it's not]

I've also been watching the Tour de France, as I've been up with sick kidlets, way better than watching infomercials LOL
