For the past 30 mins i have been doing a few things on the internet catching up on a fair bit of stuff that i cant do or hate to do on my laptop which only has dial up, as my nephew went and bought me a prepaid dial up card. (dial up is so slow after broadband)
It seems that the internet company has sent me a faulty modem, as the DSL light stays solid most of the time, only flashing for the connection to come back. So it means i need to ring internet company again tomorrow and get them to send me another modem im guessing.
Oh the fun of changing companies

This is my 2nd day without Broadband and it sucks big time
Im using my laptop as well as my desktop no longer has a modem.
Im not having much fun as i cant get online to play WoW and its Hallow ends, i am missing out on getting trick and treats so i can get all the masks to get a name after my name, i also dont get the chance to do the daily to get the mount that you can only get in Scarlet Monestry while Hallows end is on.
I got the dial up as i wanted to fill this in and also i feel lost without the internet dial up is not great but it is better than nothing

I like men that look a little nerdy, and i like guys that have a little bit of weight on them, i like being able to cuddle into something, not hit bones.
I was seeing a guy years ago who was really skinny, he rarely ate when i was with him, but liked to watch me eat (very strange). I didn't stay with him very long as when i lent into his shoulder i would hit the collar bone which stuck out alot, not very comfortable and i used to use a cushion to lean on him which defeats the purpose i think.
I think the guy who plays Betty's boyfriend Henry Grubstick (Christopher Gorham) in Ugly Betty is really cute, there are many other men over the years who i have thought are cute, which I'm sure other women/men might not think they are
Its lucky that everyone in the world thinks differently i think.

Talking to a friend last night he told me how i should hold the bird with a towel to cut his nails, i did it today but it was so horrible doing it. Poor Cello was flying around screaming at me for trying to catch him, i finally got him and covered his head so he couldn't bite me anymore and cut his claws a little bit, making sure i didn't cut down to far.
I think it was close to as stressful to him as it was to me, he is now sitting on my shoulder but is a little more subdued that he normally is, but i did get his nails cut and he dosent seem to hate me

I get back to sleep and get woken at 9am by someone who lives next door to me trying to hammer something, to me it sounded like they where hammering the wall.
I so hate getting out of bed or waking till at least midday, i think it was a conspiracy to wake me up today and make me feel tired all day. As it is i have a few hours of work to do from home before i can go to bed and i can feel my eyes so sleepy grrrrr
Only 9 more days and nephew leaves, counting down the days hehe

Today i got up earlier than usual, i had to be somewhere so only had 5 hours sleep last night. Where i had to go was to a thing called Speak Out, it is an activity that is held monthly at different places in my local area.
What speak out does is gets the local community together for a barbecue and fete, when getting a barbecue you had to get a ticket and write on the ticket what you think the area needs, this information is then collected by someone who works for the local council, from this information she collates it all and sees if the same things come up, then information is then handed to other council members to see if we can get some of these activities or suggestion working in the area.
The reason i was there is that i am asked to write about the day and also take pictures of the day, it is fun but it is also tiring.

|What Be Your Nerd Type?|
Your Result: Literature Nerd
Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

You can now go and get your hair changed (different colour and cut), there are new talent trees, you have to re-learn for pets and any mounts you had, loads and loads of different things to now do.
You cant get to Northrend yet of course, but the areas where you will need to go are there, for Alliance the area to get to Northrend is in Stormwind, you can go to where the ships are which will take you to Northrend, so new things to do and new things to see.
Of course loads of people didnt read any of the information Blizzard had added before you got into the game and loads of questions are being asked of how to do certain things.
All you really need to do is look at your character sheet and most of what you need is sitting there.
All about Northrend

I am filling this in now while i can think of something to write about, i know i have been lazy by finding pictures or stories and just adding them to my website, but it all i had time for, as it is i should be doing something else right now, but i am doing this instead.
All silly things running around in my head, like i just noticed that one of my nails has a small crack in it, down in the quick, so i am going to have to either cut my nail or leave it as it is, if i cut it i will have a short nail again, if i leave it long will be in pain when it breaks, i think i will decide later what to do, i will probably cut it as i dont want the pain from it grrr
So there you go some ramblings that are in my head at the moment ciao

My neighbours are Lebanese and I'm Australian, they of course speak English around me, but when they have relatives over some of them don't speak English, so i spend most of the afternoon listening to them speaking Lebanese or i talk to their children which of course speak English. I have learnt a few words though like how to say no, i cant remember what yella means though, but the often say it, oh well doesn't matter
The kids had a jumping castle in the backyard, made me wish i was a child so i could go in and jump around in it, the kids where asking me to go into it, I'm grown up now and maybe if i was child size i would have gone in hehehehe
While gone i left 2 of my nephews in my house (19, 22) and of course when i come back the house has stuff everywhere.
Only 2 1/2 more weeks and my 22 year old nephew moves out hooray!!!!!!

Most people will say the reason for their old age is to not smoke, drink alot of water or moderate exercise.
Miss Meadmore says she has always been too busy for relationships and thought of physical intimacy as a 'hassle'.
Miss Meadmore was born in Glasgow in 1903, two years after the death of Queen Victoria. She remembers hearing about the sinking of the Titanic in 1912 and the outbreak of the First World War. Her family emigrated when she was seven, first to Egypt, then Canada and later New Zealand. But Miss Meadmore returned to Britain alone in her twenties and worked as a secretary and housekeeper.
Miss Meadmore said 'Everything seems so fast these days. I don't know a lot about young people or the way they do things. I'm sure it's very different. I made my mind up at the age of 12 never to marry and I've not gone back on that.'

I know my whole life i have been told i look younger than i am but i thought i looked out of my 20's now.
This person told me that i looked around 28 years old, i laughed and told her i am 44, her first reaction was, where is your grey hair, i had to then point it out to her..
To me im sure i dont look 28 years old, i dont have the fresh looking skin i think younger people do have, or maybe its that women who are 28 look older who knows.
I have a joke i say to people at times when they tell me i look younger than i do,
"with the age defying cream that says it will let you look years younger, i better not use it or i may look 10"
Good to know that i dont look my age though
I have a list of things i can write about, only about 15 so far, but thats a start and i might find things day to day to write about so i should be able to do it easily.
Just have to hope that i dont use all my ideas for the future otherwise this blog is gonna get very boring.
In one of my previous blog messages (Ever Wonder) i wrote about how i wonder certain thing work and why they are as they are, i was thinking the other day how do they make pencils (1), and why are they made to that size?(2)
(1) A machine cuts eight grooves, half as deep as the graphite-clay rod is thick, into the slats, and then places rods in each groove.
Once the rods are in place, a second grooved slat is glued on top of the first.
When the glue dries, the slats are fed through a cutting machine that cuts the wood into various shapes and divides the slats into eight separate pencils.
The seams where the two slats are joined are sanded down and several coats of paint are applied to the pencil, giving it the appearance of a solid structure. More information on How Stuff Works
(2) Cant find anything about the size, maybe someone out there knows...

The other states and territories have it on other days,
March 3 2008 Western Australia (Perth)
March 10 2008 Tasmania (Hobart)
March 10 2008 Victoria (Melbourne)
Labour Day is celebrated at different times in Australia because each state achieved the 8 hour day on different dates.
Labour day is to celebrate the achievements of organised labour on behalf of the worker to bring about the 8-hour day in the late 1850s.
Previously workers were required to work long hours each week . . . 10 to 12 hours a day six days a week. While a change was made to the hours worked each day, the five day work week we enjoy today took almost a century longer to be adopted finally in 1948.

The clock has now gone an hour forward, it stuffed me around a little today, i got up earlier than i would have.
