I won't be around for a few days. I am not well.

Hope everyone has a good weekend and don't do anything I wouldn't, which means your options are very limited LOL

Hugs Bugs!

Remember [Sha La La La]

Heh. Kids discovered a pic of me wearing my Rollers trews. No, I am not putting up a pic of my Roller fan days. I liked Les McKeown but unlike my best friend Michelle, I didn't kiss the tv set during their videos on Countdown *g* I did however spend a lot of time staring at my posters of Les, shocking they were! he had a bare chest! My Dad concluded that was why I suddenly started shaving my legs and grounded me. Seriously LOL He took a bit longer to catch onto the OMG!!!!My daughter is plucking her eyebrows bit. Then I was grounded some more.

I'm sure he had to resist the urge to ground me for letting my daughters shave their legs and wax their eyebrows too ROFLMAO

I figured seeing as how the world didn't come to a screeching halt because Bella admitted to being a closet Justin Timberlake fan, it wouldn't hurt for me to admit that I still love the Bay City Rollers and listen to them at least once a week. I converted all my records and have all of them in iTunes *G* When I get really po'd at the world I listen to the Rollers. Les is still HOTT [ for the troll playing at home]

Soooo, anyway, I went to his official site after all the hysterical cackling by children was done and apparently he might be coming back to Oz for shows. He's on MySpace too, so of course I added him to my friends list thingy. He's put up a great version of Feels Like Making Love.

Well, enough from Nostalgia Central. I am redoing my template, so I might suddenly change in the next day or 2.

Hmmm, decisions, decisions!

My options are
a/ Researching and playing with different CMS to implement. Drupal and Joomla! so far, any others that I should know about?

b/ I got accepted as a beta tester for Joost and installed it. I have free to air internet tv with a sci fi channel! Actually the channels look really cool so far, the kids will be happy too. Even if the head ogre is blocking the remote, they can watch tv on one of the pc's. I might get left alone for 15 minutes now *g*

So,my dilemna is the pretty shiny things, which one do I play with first? heh.

Black Friday

I remember why I stopped doing full time web dev/design now.

The ex-client is lucky I am professional, something they would be wise to start doing. You know that old * Be careful what you wish for* saying? Quite.

I am a little black thundercloud. I am going to work on my latest piece so I can resist the urge to smack someone around the ears. They are SO lucky the cane has not arrived yet, aluminium crutches just don't have the same effect.

back later.

too lazy to think of a title

I have some sites I like to visit before I get to the stage of choking the life out of a client. They remind me that there are much dumber one's out there *g*

This one however is my favourite so far Stupid Client Quote #29 well, that and people that think all we do is tell the computer what we want and Voila! It does everything. Put them in the pile along with people who think they have taste.

And, people wonder why I prefer Illuminations. I still can't quite work out how I got sucked back into the whacky world of webdev, but oh well.

Dogbait.... heh. Might take me a while, but I'll pay you back for that one *G*
I did remember to switch over to your new WPblog this time too.

Nothing else exciting happening in life, apart from me becoming a character in a Sims game , courtesy of OzFemme LOL I think she's got me worked out... troublesome has often been used in the same sentence as my name.

WIP won't be up tonight cos I watched Amazing Race instead. So, tomorrow instead.

Nite all.

For all of you looking for Central Ink, Oakleigh...

They have a website* at
* October 2008 - The site no longer exists.

Highly recommended if you want a new tatt or body piercing or something. Nice people and top tattoo artists. Hubby got his done there and loves it. No, it's not one of ours, but go look!

New WIP up later tonight, I have been a busy little bee and our new site design will be up next week. Same logo, just changing the look around, as you do. I got stuck back into Joomla! since my broom was grounded as well, so some of the sites have to be reworked.

Apart from that, I am off for a nanny nap, went gallivanting today LOL

I've been abit unhappy since yesterday. No, actually, not a bit, a freaking lot. The specialist thinks I need a knee replacement. Not a reconstruction, a bloody replacement with metal and stuff. Maybe I should change my blogname to Robohag or something if I have to. But, the other thing is I am in the medically *too young* basket for a knee replacement and will have to have it done again a few times as I get older, which is not recommended as a general rule.
So, my choices will be hobble around with a cane forever or be out of action for about12 mths and every 15 years [ if I'm lucky] or so have it done again. I have too much lateral movement in my left knee for it to be something easily fixed and apparently my ACL is too far gone he thinks. I have to have another MRI and Xray because PA is also a factor in any surgery.
Wait,every cloud has a silver lining right? I will no longer have to aimlessly wander carparks looking for that elusive spot. I will no longer be the nice young [?] thing who can stand on buses, trains and trams! People will no longer ponder if I am drunk because I fell on my face when walking 5 steps [ Yes, this does happen frequently LOL]. If people get in my way I can smack their ankles with my cane to make them stop. I can use my cane to get people's attention... err, wait, that sounds like I've been watching too much House LOL

I have refused to get a boring old thing, so I'm on the lookout for really cool canes [ walking sticks] I'll also have to have a few different one's so I can accessorise correctly. I mean, really. If I'm going to have to have one, I am gonna be the trendiest. So, my shoe fascination will have to be replaced by a cane fascination ROFLMAO The girls are already divvying up my stilletto's, the little toads.

Speaking of which, I really don't think the eldest is going to make it much further, she's nesting*G*

Well, I am off to start another painting
MWAH kiddies!

A Sporting Chance

As I said before, I totally agree with the cost of kids sport. I am not the only one and now the media is onto it as well. Hopefully it will be looked at by someone who can do something. It may not sound so bad if you look at one child, but add in another and we're away in costs. As a general rule if one kid in the family wants to play a sport, siblings generally want to have a go too.
We used to use the school playgrounds and sports fields as our *clubhouse* to train and play rather than an actual clubhouse or specialised sports ground. Why not go back to that?

PARENTS are forking out hundreds of dollars each year for their children to play junior sport – and the costs are only going to rise.
Sport memberships can cost almost $200 a season while leagues are charging weekly game fees as high as $8.
Frustrated parents are also being charged just to watch their children play.
But sporting clubs have argued increasing costs such as electricity and maintenance force the increases.
Read the rest of the story

Not only are we paying through the nose for children to play, we also have to fork out to watch them to raise money to repair vandalism. Wonder if the vandalism was caused by kids who play sports or whether they're vandalising stuff because they're bored because their parents can't afford for them to play sport?

When she arrived at his game at the weekend she had to fork out $12.10, which covered the cost of two adults, one child and the $6.70 junior game fee. Read the rest of the story

And this guy misses the point completely. Parents who can't afford to pay the fee's obviously will not be "encouraging and supportive" of the sport their child chooses. So, the kid misses out altogether. Then again, with the amount of money he earns, I guess his kids won't miss out because Mum & Dad's budget is about to rupture.

A LEADING sporting expert has argued reducing junior sport fees won't make any difference to the childhood obesity epidemic. Read the rest of the story

Happy Easter

Hope everyone has a good Easter, if you are driving, please watch out for lunatics on the roads.

We are doing absolutely nothing tomorrow. No kids todrive towork or to the train. The other 2 did their gallivanting today, so I am sleeping in. Reading and watching dvd's the rest of the time.

As we did the rellie thing last week, we don't have to drive anywhere this year either. YAY!

OMG. Shiny Things!

I think my mate knows me too well LOL He left this icon on myspace for me as he says it reminded him of me. hehe.

Stop the world.

I am really pissed off.
These are actually rhetorical questions, so I am not expecting replies. I just need to vent before my head really does start spinning on my shoulders.

Why does the world have so many arseholes who think they are more special than others?
Why can't people stop playing bullshit mind games and be upfront and honest?
Why do people think I actually believe what they are saying? Do they really think I am that fucking stupid?
Why does someone's *word* mean absolutely.totally. zero and they justify their unprofessional, rude and condescending twattish behaviour with even more inane dribble?

Do I look like I have moron tattooed on my forehead?

Arrrrrghhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. fucknuckle. I am done with this one.

Weekend Warrior

Well, that was fun. I am so tired. 12 people in one house is very noisy. Not to mention try to hobble around that many people and their belongings on crutches LOL

Dinner at the restaurant was good, although I was not happy to see they took my favourite meal off the menu, Veal Scallopini. Not gonna go there anymore. harumph. GS1 [5 yr old] did make his mother extremely embarassed though by sticking his head through a hole in the door in the ladies loo... yes, it was occupied. She's still embarassed ROFLMAO [ yes, I know he shouldn't have done it, but it's still funny]

So, I made them all watch the WSBK racing on Sunday night, because ya know, I am just that evil. Mind you, I think it backfired on me cos then I had to explain what each category was and who each rider was ROFL Don't think I managed to get any converts though! Top racing to watch though.

Everyone has now gone home, so I can relax and catch up what I've missed.
