Is a turtle without a shell naked, or homeless?

Manly thrusting makes me giggle. But only when Westlife does it.

I am the walrus.


One of the strangest songs I've listened to, but I like it all the same.

Ever since a couple of weeks ago when I went to watch the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra play with a Beatles tribute band, I've been listening to a lot of old Beatles song.

And I like it.

I don't mean the trippy-hippie stuff (with the exception of maybe "I Am the Walrus"), I mean the songs when The Beatles first started out with the rock and roll stuff in the early 60's. True, that their later songs (which I also like) are more meaningful while the earlier ones were just love songs, but screw that 'cos that is exactly the kind of shit I wanna listen to right now; I'll be as much of a wanker as I like and listen to my gay, happy-boppy, early-Beatles music, YEAH. I think if I was born during that time I would've been one of those screaming girls in the audience.

A surprising/odd discovery is that I like John Lennon - as in, fangirl-[83]-like. Not the trippy-hippie-Yoko-Ono Lennon, I mean the cute-boy-Beatles-face Lennon.

Awwww <3

It's Jesus with guitar!

Blogspot is being gay and won't let me save space by publishing the images next to each other...
Moving on, I I like him more due to the fact that he's quite silly when you watch him in interviews and concert clips and etc. As seen here in "A Hard Day's Night" - a fake documentary about the Beatles, sort of like the Spice Girls Movie a while back. Only this is actually good:

Ahhh.... [xD] Anyway, gonna roll about some more at uni, next class in half an hour.

The Melbourne Freeze // The Great "Where's Wally?" Search [Pt. 1]

There was an event organised on Facebook a couple of weeks ago called the Melbourne Freeze. Basically, it was a large group of people who stood frozen outside Bourke St Mall for about 5 minutes, then just dispersed after the 5 minutes.

Here's a group doing the Freeze in Paris (apparently the largest crowd in the world with 3000 people).

There's a Melbourne video floating about somewhere. I really wanted to participate in this, but I was studying for exams when this was going on [xP].

Anyway, so last night, I came across the videos of this group in New York called Improv Everywhere, who basically go around and do large-scale public pranks.

The Moebius: a group of people from Improv Everywhere set up a customer time loop at a Starbucks

Look Up More: a large group of people stand in front of every window of a big department store and do silly things.


Now, after watching all these, and especially seeing how the Melbourne Freeze was just thought of randomly by someone, I've honestly been thinking about organising something like this. Maybe I'm just being too ambitious, but I already have an idea that isn't too hard too do and doesn't need a lot of setting up to do. I might try and bring it up with the girl that organised the Melbourne Freeze, or just start the event on my own on Facebook.

I guess I'll post some rough details on here soon too; let me know if you're interested, otherwise I might just scrap the idea! [:3]

A cure for boredom...

"Bored Baby"
... exists?

I'm up late with nothing to do except sleep, although I don't feel like it just yet.

I have nothing to write about really, so I'm just talking shit here. Well anyway, came back from my clinical placements about 2 weeks ago, so a quick overview:

- A lot of people are fat in Bendigo. My theory: For a small city/large-ish town, it contains every single fast food chain. From memory I believe Bendigo had a Maccas, Hungry Jacks, KFC, Red Rooster, Pizza Hut, and Dominos.

- The hospital is inconveniently far away from the town centre where all the shops are if you are forced to go by foot. This was discovered when I was caught out in the rain without an umbrella with Wang on a trip to find a Coles. Groceries were needed.

- On another note, the hospital is at a further distance to keep away the crazies; the hospital student's building I lived in was next door to the psych ward. Getting woken up at 8am by loud tone-deaf singing/rapping is not cool.

- I was surprised twice with people coming in for a foot x-ray, only to discover they had a toe missing. In other words, both exams started off as "OK, I'm gonna start moving you're foot around now..." which would eventually lead to "((something doesn't look quite rig-THERE'S A TOE MISSING! THAT'S DEFINITELY NOT RIGHT D8 ))"

- Going through the shortcut to work is creepy. Going at night after hours past the psych ward make me crap my pants.

- Seeing the mouse that lived in my kitchen made me crap my pants.

- Wear thongs in the shower, and move as far away from the shower curtain as possible.

- Most-taken x-ray: Chests. Least taken: Clavicle.

- Enjoyed taking: I/C knees. Hated taking: Shoulders + anything Hip related.

- Most useful thing I learned: the machine in Room 3 is retarded; good thing I realised this before my assessment.

- Most amusing thing I learned: when I made the connection that the 2nd I/C knee positioning method could be summarised by the image of "OTL".

Overall, placement was pretty good - virtually all the radiographers were nice (with the occasional cranky pants), everyone was pretty relaxed, the workload wasn't horrible, and the work we did was good and interesting. I think having a proper taste of working life just made me wish that I didn't have to go back to uni anymore (or back to shitty work at Max Brenner).

Honestly though, I don't think I'd mind coming back again next year for 5-6 weeks. I probably would've enjoyed Bendigo more if the living conditions were better, and I had easier access to the town (ie. had a car with me), but I guess if I get dumped without a place to go again, Bendigo would be an good choice. Granted I still want try out different places and broaden my expericence, especially in bigger hospitals (or at least in a busier environment), I like that in Bendigo it was never overwhelmingly busy, and that the staff all got along and were relaxed about work; everything was a sort of a nice, breezy expericence.

Ohh, another thing I liked was that a overall the staff were younger than the last place I worked at. And there was a bigger age range of patients - babies and little kids, to adults and the elderly. This, in comparison to my last placement in Ferntree Gully hospital which was across the road from a nursing home. Seriously, virtually 2/3 of the patients that came in there were old, wrinkly people.

And I found out that once I start working, I get a really shit pay. Like, $35k per year. I can barely afford my car after working for a year. Have to be working for at least a couple of to start making decent money. Either that or I specialise in something like ultrasound/sonography, or MRI, or maybe CT..... hmm...

Anyway, sleepy time! [<3]

So I decided to pick up my lazy ass...

"Lazy Cat"

... and come back to my blog.

(Note: Hmm, for some reason after I wrote this entry last night, a few random sentences got lost along the way. Well I've managed to write them back in, and hopefully it doesn't happen again...)

It's been several months since I've posted here, although being a pretty uneventful person, not much has happened, meaning this entry is more likely to consist of mindless babble.

I turned 19 about 2 weeks ago - everyone was dressed in pyjamas, and we toasted marshmallows over random candles [like the somewhat odd people we are xD]. Bummed around the house mostly, chatting, eating, played some "Murder in the Dark", and I remember hitting Alvin a few times with my long pillow [xD]. And we missed out on Singstar due to lack of an actual PS2 console despite having the games there, but was still very much fun without it anyway [:)]. Oh yeah, and Peter, Chii Shi, Feng, and Wang/boyfriend stay quite late into the next day (we watched the first ep. of Gladiators, haha).
Very much loved all my presents: Miracle, So Magic by Lancome; "Never Gone" Backstreet Boys album; toy keyring + necklace from Sandra [:3]; Westlife "The Unbreakable Tour" DVD (although I already had it, but hey it's still cool lol); "Matilda" by Roald Dahl; and from boyfriend I received a pair of socks, car freshener, a sweet potato [which was awesome when mashed with normal potatoes and carrots <3], style="font-weight: bold;">[Q] Do you prefer people just giving you presents that they decide on, or telling people what presents they should buy for you?

I'm more for the second option - I mean, unless you are 100% certain that I will like whatever you've bought for me, like "Matilda" (well done, Lawrence!) or flowers [big hint to someone... ;P], I would much rather tell people to buy me things that I really want than surprise me with something random and be somewhat disappointed. It's like when you're a kid and you're not too sure what to do about this random photo frame you've just unwrapped.

Moving on!

So it's another new school/uni year, and thanks to me failing one of my subjects in semester 1 last year, I'm still doing a part time load because I'm now repeating. But hey, I'm not really complaining since I have so little hours (ie. so much free time to be an ass and bum around):

Monday: Free, except in week 6 and 7 when I have morning lab classes
Tuesday: MedRad Tech/ONPS2343 lecture, 11:30am - 12:30pm
Wednesday: Chinese-2 at City campus, 1:30pm - 4:30pm
Thursday: Free
Friday: MedRad Tech/ONPS2343 lecture, 11:30am - 1:30pm; fortnightly labs that rotate between 1:30pm - 3:30pm, and 3:30pm - 5:30pm.

So let's say on a regular basis I'll have roughly 6 hours a week, and I'll at most have 10 hours provided in the one week I have both a Monday and a Friday lab (which I think happens in week 7). It's not too bad repeating since I'm not actually alone in this [quite a few of my uni friends failed this subject too xD]. And together we all felt somewhat sad and pathetic that we were surrounded by new first years, while the repeaters all managed to fit into a row and a half in the lecture theatre [^^;;]. But the point is we felt sad and pathetic together, not sad and pathetic alone, lol.
And, oh yes, I am doing Chinese. You know, even though I did 3&4 in VCE, my god I've forgotten a lot! It's a wonder how I got through VCE Chinese [D:]. I mean I am going through the subject with reasonable ease, but I'm still coming across words that I don't know/had forgotten how to write, but at least I'm properly learning how to write tone marks for pinyin ['coz I never really knew how xP], as well as proper grammar (which are the two main things I wanted to learn in Chinese-2). I hope I do really well in this subject, I'll feel somewhat ridiculous if I only manage to get a pass [._."].

Another thing: it has come to my attention that I seem to have a lack of new clothes. As much as I hate shopping I really should go out and buy myself some crap to wear. To quote (roughly) Lisa Simpson : "It feels like I've been wearing the same dress over and over again for the past 8 years". I seriously don't think I have the patience, stamina, and willingness to spend money (due to me being quite a cheapo) to really go shopping. Hmm... maybe I should use that wad of birthday cash I have...

Anyhoo, that's about all from me for now. I just forgot I still have a class tomorrow, so I'll be printing off my lecture notes now and heading to bed. Niteoo [^-^]!!

"An index finger."

Hahahahahahahaha [xD].

So, for the past week - general bumming things and whatever, nothing particularly eventful.

Went to Fred's birthday dinner at TGI Friday's - holy crap, Jack Daniel's Burger = <3. Seriously though, I don't think I could ever manage eating the entire thing EVER again, it was freakin' huge!!

Sent Andrew off at the airport on the weekend with Peter and Wang - only had about 3 hours sleep in total, and I still had to go to work after we dropped him off at the airport. But it wasn't too bad, work was ridiculously busy so it kept me well awake for the 4 hours of my shift.

Apart from that, just some coffee here and there, and bumming around at people's houses watching random things.

And it seems to be everyone's birthday all of a sudden - I'm still having a lot of trouble figuring out what I want to do. Anyone have any ideas? I don't really wanna do a dinner, but then I can't exactly do a house party either [things didn't turn out so well with the parents the next day ^^;;]. I guess everyone's reaching that age where we're supposed to be having "adult" parties, where we stand around, have dinner or drink at a bar, and make polite conversation. I don't know about anyone else, but that sounds preeeeeetty boring to me. Guess I just need to think harder [^^;;].

I've been thinking about stuff that I want for my birthday too [no trouble there ;P], and I've realised that a lot of it is just random silly things, not like last year when I asked people to get me an external hard drive... my list of stuff seems to contain a lot of movies/DVDs [o.o"]; I'll post it here when it's closer to the day and I can think of more stuff lol.

Oh yeah... and thanks to Peter and Wang, for making me feel better [^_^].

Anyhoo, that's all for now :)

Oh yeah, disco fever <3

"Disco", by Linda Martin.

I rediscovered my sister's old 4Play party remix CDs the other day with all these disco songs on them, and since then I've been on a mass disco rampage; been downloading songs like nuts.

And once again, I've been lazy and neglected updating my blog, a good two weeks or so have passed already! Although not much has happened recently, only a few things stand out at the moment, the rest are all blurred together - it's what happens when you've been home for too long [=/].

Anyhoo, there was Nat's birthday party last Tuesday. Rocked up nice and early to her house at 10:30am [D;], although everyone didn't arrive until 12:30 or so. By then, we all gathered our things, and we set off on a road trip to the "Enchanted Maze Garden" in Arthurs Seat (not far from Mornington Peninsula). We ate our food, played around in the maze [I got lost D;] and the pretty gardens... you know that kid's maze was a lot prettier than a lot of the other parts of the place lol. Oh yeah, and HOLY GEEBUS, the grass they had everywhere was so nice! Really soft, and as clean-feeling as grass could get [xD].
Didn't leave until the place closed at 6pm, and got back to Glenny at about 7:30. Had dinner at the new Korean place "Goshen" - not as good as Kim Chi Grandma, but still awesome and much yumminess. I hate that since there aren't many Korean, and even Japanese restaurants around, they tend to charge as much as they want - Korean and Japanese food is expensive (with the exception of places like Sushi Sushi and Don Don)!!
Bummed at Nat's house for a bit longer 'til everyone left up until 12:30am... ? Roughly. Went to pick up my sister [Peter and Wang tagged along, thanks guy ;D] from the city, then stumbled on home.

Mmh... what else?
I've been working a lot more lately - I asked for more shifts from my manager on my last shift before New Years. I've started training on food and drinks too, instead of just doing floor work - lots of fun, but I'm still trying to get used to handling the rushes of orders that come in.

Went out today to Chadstone with Peter and Want to get a necklace replaced at Mimco [the chain was kinda flimsy and it broke >.>], but apparently that particular necklace wasn't even meant to be on sale yet, so I'll have to go back after Friday when they're in stock. Shopped around randomly, ate sushi, drove to Officeworks, and back to Wang's house for Daria, among other things.

Other than that, not much else has happened [and I can't remember enough stuff to write about it properly ^^;;] ... had Yum Cha lunch twice in a week [with the family, and with the friends ;P], running errands here and there, and general bumming at someone's house.

Things are all nice and easy-going at the moment... I wouldn't say I'm complaining as such, just that I wish I had more to do. Going out it is good, although I'm horribly broke at the moment; when I'm at home it's either TV or computer, but not much is on these days, and I've exhausted my normal online entertainment resources. I need to stick things back on my ceiling again [dammit -.-"], but I'm pretty reluctant seeing as it's summer, and anything I stick back will probably fall off next week. And I've lost my patience already with my replaying of FFVII since I know what's coming next and it's ridiculously frustrating.
Maybe I should get into some reading, find a good book or something. Or get back into some piano stuff, haven't done that in a while.

Before I head off: The other day I was in David Jones with my sister, I was looking at fragrances. There was this day during year 12 that (I think) me, Nat, and Kristin were going around testing random perfumes and I came across Lancome "Miracle: So Magic!"

"Miracle: So Magic!" - fragrance by Lancome.

Well yes, I found it again that other day with my sister, and I remembered how much I liked it. Much prettiness [x3].
So when it gets to birthday time, can someone PLEASE GET IT FOR ME!?! [D;]

Guess where I'm going...! [x3]

The Backstreet Boys, as of 2007.

Ooh yeah... been trying to get some tickets from eBay for a while now, and I finally got two A reserve seated tickets [I'm going with Steph x3] for $320!! We're paying an extra $60 since normal tickets (which btw, are all sold out) are only $100, but hey, it's Backstreet Boys!!

Anyway, haven't been up to much lately. Peter came back a few days ago [whoohoo! xD] so that was cool.

Went to Wang's house to watch Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien with Chii Shi, Allan, and Peter... although we had to go to Peter's house to wake him up [>.>]. Peter disappeared the night before on everyone's MSN when he went to shower and cut his hair. It wasn't until about 4 hours later we realised that he probably wasn't coming back.
Oh yeah, and Peter bought me a present [x3]:

The soft toy version of that, lol. It's actually pretty big... and Allan and Wang had to violate it with continuous crotch-grabbings. Poor bear [.__."]
Also met up with Andrew in Glenny and had dinner at Bob's. Apparently it might be closing down 'coz the owner sold it. Anyone know anything about this? I like my dumplings [=/].

And yesterday I got violently woken up by my sister the other day, and by violently I mean she opened my door ridiculously loudly and went "MUM'S ANNOYED AND SHE WANTS YOU TO GET UP AND GO DOWNSTAIRS AND EAT LUNCH!" And my mum wasn't really annoyed, I just got some residual angry from my sister 'coz my mum was pestering her about something, and she was talking to her boyfriend on the phone and was in a bit of a shit with him, lol.

Didn't do much until much later (10:30pm or so) when I went to Wang's house with Peter again with the intention of finishing the last few episodes of KGNE... but ended up going to Vincent's since he just got back from Hong Kong too, lol. HE HAS AN ELECTRIC VIOLIN, WHICH IS RIDICULOUSLY AWESOME [o____o!!] And he bought back a bunch of rings with star sign symbols on them; I took the one with Aries [=3]. It's kinda chunky for a girl ring, and it's a little loose, but it's still cool and I like it.
After that, went to pick up my sister from her boyfriend's/Lawrence's apartment in the city [Peter and Wang tagged along to keep me company in the car =3], and went home.

So yeah... that's about it. I seriously need more things to do, I'm spending waaaay too much time on Gaia when really I'm doing all day is posting random crap. If you have any ideas, feel free to tell me. Please [D;]
