Meh

I was going to post a post talking about how much I love halloween, but realized that I can no longer formulate any posts that wouldn't fit into a facebook status update. I am deeply ashamed of my attention span.

Ahhh, memories.

So a lot has happened since I last posted here. I spent 5 months in Nepal, teaching kids to belly dance, and competitively lowering my hygiene standards (Victoria won with her 13 days without a shower). I met a lot of awesome people, did a lot of crazy things (Bungy jumped off a bridge, paraglided off a cliff, abseiled down waterfalls), and learnt a lot about myself. Mostly that I do not like lentils.

I like to think that I'm chiller now. I appreciate the life I have more now. I'm less picky about the cleanliness of public bathrooms now. And I appreciate the memories of a childhood so much better off then those kids I met in Nepal. And a lot of that childhood was here, in the hallowed halls of LJ.

I remember the Dramas, the Black Outs, the great Banning. I remember a time when Facebook was still lame, and Neopets was what we all did for online gaming.

How the times have changed, eh?

Very exciting day- I booked my insurance and flights for Nepal. Scary. It's almost all paid for now (I have a few bits and pieces such as a suitcase to buy yet). I'm on track budget wise but only just. Flights were slightly more expensive then I was expecting.


And now I'm watching Popodessey. You heard me. AND I THINK IT'S MY FAVOURITE THING IN THE UNIVERSE!

I keep having recurring dreams about my dads place in Victoria, with the overwhelming urge to go there. Unfortunately I have very little time and even less money before I head off to Nepal, so it's going to have to wait most of a year. Maybe I can convince the dreams to change to recurring dreams about shopping with an Amex Black. Since shopping is one thing that's not on my plate anytime soon, not unless you count the exciting task of finding a sleeping bag suited to the base of the Himalayas.

I've spent the evening watching Catherine Tate clips. So at this point I'm wondering around the house going "But am I bovvered? Look at this face, it ain't even bovvered." The poor new neighbours behind my place are probably right confused now.

So it turns out my mother auditioned for the role of Grinch this year. After 2 weeks staying with me she left on Tuesday. Apparently the last act she did before returning to England was put Stray!Cat into the shelter. Without telling me. So I spent the last few days thinking the stray that's been my only company in my house for the last 5 months, who sleeps on my bed with me, was squashed flat on a road somewhere, turns out my mother (who had agreed to take care of him while I was in Nepal) decided the bast course of action was to get rid of him without telling me.

Wow. Nothing like Christmas to reveal what the demon spawn you call family is really like.

Happy non-denominational holiday season!

It's been a strange Christmas this year. I choose to spend it alone. I had offers of parties, but spending the day relaxing with a lot of food, alcohol and the TV sounded like SUCH a better plan, and I'll have to admit, I really enjoyed it. It was nice not to spend this christmas worrying about pleasing other people but to have it an exercise in self indulgence.
I give you the lyrics of my favourite christmas song, which pretty much sums up my feeling towards Christmas:

Outside the carolers start to sing
I can't describe the joy they bring
Cause joy is something they don't bring me

My girlfriend is by my side
From the roof are hanging sickles of ice
Their whiny voices get irritating
It's Christmas time again

So I stand with a dead smile on my face
Wondering how much of my time they'll waste
Oh God I hate these Satan's helpers

And then I guess I must have snapped
Because I grabbed a baseball bat
And made them all run for shelter

It's Christmas time again
It's time to be nice to the people you can't stand all year
I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me
Please stay away from my home
If you don't wanna get beat down
Just leave the presents and then leave me alone.

Well I guess it's not cool to freak on Christmas Eve
Cause the cops came and arrested me
They had an unfair advantage

And even though the jail didn't have a tree
Christmas came a night early
Causes a guy named Bubba unwrapped my package (hot damn)

It's Christmas time again
It's time to be nice to the people you can't stand all year
I'm growing tired of all this Christmas cheer
You people scare me
Please stay away from my home
If you don't wanna get beat down
Just leave the presents and then leave me alone

I won't be home
I won't be home for Christmas
I won't be home
I won't be home for Christmas (please post my bail)
I won't be home
I won't be home for Christmas (please post my bail)
I won't be home
I won't be home for Christmas (please post my bail)
I won't be home
I won't be home for Christmas (please post my bail)
I won't be home
I won't be home for Christmas


I hope you all enjoyed your Christmas as much as I did!

Update

So I've been gone an age. Sorry about that. Quick update:

Had a really frantic time when I was performing Bollywood almost every weekend, so I quit my Bollywood troupe. Cut back on Belly dance classes so I am now only taking Tribal classes because I felt I wasn't getting anything out of Oriental.

Still pole dancing. Also took some lap dance classes which were fun.

Dated a chick at work, tried to have civil breakup. Did not have civil breakup. Have now learnt not to fish in the company lake.

Have not decided if I actually like SGU or not.

Am moving to Nepal in march for 5months to volunteer teaching street kids arts or something of the sort.

Am vegetarian, not vegan these days, but am still intending to go vegan again.

Am addicted to cake wrecks

Still working for Westpac. Still hate it with a fiery passion.

... And that's about it.
I think the problem with SGU is it doesn't follow the Stargate pattern of characters: two main, one science, one millitary (Daniel/O'Neil, Rodney/Sheppard) who have an old married couple thing going on, one tough as chick (Sam, Teyla), and one warrior (Tealc, Ronon). Instead everyone hates everyone and you hate them just as much.
