      Greetings everybody,

      Just to get something clear i'm the idiot, because i'm doing something very dumb but for a good cause :P I'm going to walk 5km in full medieval armour to raise money for sick kids. If you feel like securing a place in Heaven/Valhalla you can donate to support the event, or if you're going to be in Brisbane Australia on the 21st of June you can register to join (if you're as insane as me). The pre-generated message below is from the Working Wonder website and links to sponsoring my team, but i don't care who you sponsor, any donation would be awesome. I'll be taking pictures on the day so you can see how exhuasted i become.
      For those not familiar with medieval armour, I weigh 65ish Kg and my armour weighs about 20 kg, so i'm essentially going to be carrying a third of my own body weight.

      Thanks to anyone who donates smiley1.gif

      I know, you're shocked. ok, time for an update:

      Uni: still going, assignments still need doing, and i've managed to pass every unit so far :D
      Work: quit Subway (YAY!!!) and got a much better job working for Aldi as a 'Store Assistant' (aka: checkout chick).
      Life in general: going well, still live at home cos it's a crap load cheaper than moving out. Unlike some people here *cough* TimmiG *cough cough* I've never crashed my car or even been in an accident. My new shiney suit of chain mail should be here within a month :D Single again cos my last boyfriend was too clingy and was sort of the "woman" in the relationship which was kind of a turn off.
      Most recent 'awesome discovery': Elisa Toffoli, a brilliant singer from Italy who strangely enough does most of her work in English.
      see www.youtube.com/watch?v=uf2G-xHhRNY for an awesome live performance or www.youtube.com/watch?v=x6wGQ1Afap4 for some of her Italian work.

      Lots o' luv

    • My brain is trying to escape out my nose

      Soldier

      or at least that's what it feels like. The mystery illness has turned into a head cold. it seems that no matter how much i blow my nose more gunk appears to fill it. seemingly instantaneously. good news is the headache has stopped. I did a whole lot of nothing yesterday and that seemed to help. but since i have four assignments due next week i wont be doing nothing for a while.

      so now i'm off to write an essay about Causation in history, prepare a presentation about Global Identity, code a program about a maths game, and make a database thingy for the Chemistry KLA (Key Learning Area).

      go me : /

      This headache has lasted three days. Panadol doesn't help. It kicks in about 2 hours after i wake up and is accompanied by small feelings of light-headedness and nausia (SP?).

      i don't have a fever, so nothing is trying to infect me. I'm not achey anywhere. I've had plenty of water and food. i'm sleeping fine. so i don't know what the frak is wrong.

      i'm begining to wonder if this is what going insane feels like. cos i wouldn't put it past life to do that.

      any thought on my mystery ailment?

      luv u lots

This show has everything from Romans to Vietnam re-inactors. AND they fire the big 64 pounder guns at the Fort too :D.
      it's always heaps of fun, so come along and see me and my mates freak out the normals :P

      starts tomorrow. it's a solid month of me being a leach and following a teacher around at a school learning as much as humanly possible. plus i have some assessment stuff to do and by the end of the four weeks i'm expected to be teaching full lessons. this will be interesting.

      essentially i'm working full time a school, who is actually getting paid to take me for this prac, while my income dwindles down to almost nothing as I had to change my availability for work to only one day a week. which i negotaited with the manager to be the saturday morning graveyard shift 12am to 8 am. so i might potentially be doing 8 hours of work at the school, then go home, do some assessment work, sleep a bit then work 8 hours at Subway. i will be very dead after that day.

      so if you dont see me for the next month Prac is why.

      Luv yas

      Thx! I'm chatting with some museums to see if they will add a link to the translation site on their websites. But I'm dealing with much older people that I think don't really see its significance....younger people seem to automatically understand it though. So we'll see...my dedication with dealing with them may wear thin though =/

      Just a quick FYI to let you know that after 2 MONTHS I got the egyptian translator done! I am more relieved than ever now that the "bee-otch" (that's the name of the air freshener in the car used in the new Transformers movie) is done =)

      My newest journal entry covers the details you can check out sometime.

      tag

      as set forth by Emperor Phoenixrage:

      April 19th, 2005
      Playing games
      TAG
      You're It
      I always hated tag as a child, but this kind doesn't involve unnecessary running, and that's always a plus...

      The Game of Tag
      If I tagged you... HA! You now have to follow the rules of the game:

      -You cannot tag someone who tagged you
      -You should tag at least 5 other people (those with 4 or less will be punished by flogging or any other way I can think of)
      -Random tagging is accepted
      -All tagging should be done in the personal comments section on the homepage of the tag-ee
      -Do not eat a live chicken
      -This game is only fun if people participate
      -The goal is for everyone on the site to get tagged EVENTUALLY
      -If you decide to participate, post the rules in your journal or link them to this journal
      -I have a space monkey in my pics section
      -There is no violence until I change the game to capture the flag
      -When capture the flag breaks out, the teams will cluck like chickens until I am satisfied (....???)

      MANDATORY FUN FOR ALL!!!

      Go tag people, people have fun
