Last Day Of Winter 2010

Today is the last day of Winter, and in true Albany fashion.... it's raining. But it will be raining tomorrow too, so it's not a big deal. Spring time. My birthday is in Spring. I will have to start thinking about my party. I'm thinking of making it a "famous people of the 80s" party.... singers, actors, iconic characters etc. I want to be HM Murdock from the A Team. =D

Had a job interview at Target today. It's for a part time, checkout/door position. Wed 10-3, Thur 5-9, Fri 1-5 & Sat 1-5. 17 hours a week. I hope I get it, It will be good to have set shifts, and hopefully I'll be able to work Blockbuster around it. Fingers crossed. I should hopefully find out by the end of the week.

I also did a little bit of shopping. First I bought something completely awesome.... well 2 of the same thing, off ebay....
Yep, that's right. I ordered 2 Murdock (Sharlto Copley) action figures. One will stay sealed (because I'm a nerd) and one I'll open =D I can't wait. it was $36 for both, including postage from the UK.
I also finally got my hands on 2 DVDs I've been chasing for months. They were advertised in the Target catalogue last week, but when I went in last week I couldn't find them, well today, after my interview I wandered around the store and found them...
Discovery Channel's Dirty Jobs. This show is on ABC2 almost every night, and it's gross, but hilarious. My mother and I have a crush on the host Mike Rowe. I did a little post about it a couple of months ago. If you have a chance, check it out.

I'm going to get back into the 30 Day Project. I completely forgot about it. The next post will be Day 14 - A non-fiction book. I know what I'm going to do. I just need to get some photos. Expect it soon.

I also bought a copy of Hot Tub Time Machine on Blu-ray. I've been cutting down on buying movies and only buying movies that I really like, and I loved this film. I can't wait to watch it again, but because it's Blu-ray it will be a little harder, because the blu-ray is in the living room. I want The Book of Eli too, but Target didn't have any copies left, and I wanted to buy it for $29, as opposed to $39.95 every where else. I know I should be "supporting" local businesses, but as far as I see it, without Target, over 100 people in this town wouldn't have a job.

Gary Oldman is the best bad guy in the business. I love him as Zorg in The Fifth Element (that's another movie I need on Blu-ray)

YAY! just got an email saying that my Murdock figures have shipped. BTW, I finished Season 1 of The A Team last night. I loved the last episode when the team were in their military uniforms. Murdock looked so handsome =D I tried to find a picture, but I failed =( You'll just have to watch the episode for yourself, it's called "A Nice Place to Visit" it's the last episode of season 1.

MUST READ - Do You Want To Be A Mermaid Or A Whale?

Taken from Gala Darling.

Recently, in a large city in Australia, a poster featuring a young, thin and tan woman appeared in the window of a gym. It said, “This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?”

A middle-aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.

To Whom It May Concern,

Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans.) They have an active sex life, get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Bering Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia.

Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans.

They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.

Mermaids don’t exist.

If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human? They don’t have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them, not to mention how could they have sex? Just look at them… where is IT?

Therefore, they don’t have kids either.

Not to mention, who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me: I want to be a whale.

P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver, and a piece of chocolate with my friends.

With time, we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.

Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, “Good grief, look how smart I am!”

this is amazing. I love it! I want to be a whale, well I'm already a whale, I just want to be a healthy well adjusted whale. I've never in my life wanted to be a mermaid, even when I was obsessed with The Little Mermaid, I would of much rather been Sebastian or Flounder. I want to find this women and give her the most epic high five, and then an even more epic hug.

Almost Spring

That movie, is freaking hilarious! I LOVE John Cusack. The film was funny, the 80s soundtrack was beyond EPIC. I need to buy this movie.

Well today was pretty epic. I got an email from my mum this morning asking, if I'd go into the bank and try and get a $5,000 loan so she could buy a car. Yep. Completely random, but I went in and filled in the paperwork, I seriously didn't think I earned enough.... but I do... I got the $5,000 loan. Mum is buying a 1991 Pajero, so we can go four wheel driving, which is quite exciting.

After the bank I walked down to the senior citizen centre and.... JOINED WEIGHT WATCHERS. Yep I finally did it. I've been thinking about it for ages, and after my little emotional breakdown yesterday I realised I need support to lose weight, and since I don't have any "fat" friends to lose weight with, I've joined. Everyone was nice. I was the only new person. I didn't talk much. The leader, Kaye, is really nice and enthusiastic, but she recognised my name and told me she was friends with my aunt.... the one from the family I no longer associate with =D so I wonder how that will go down. It doesn't bother me, because I've never done anything wrong by them.... it's going to be interesting. I'm looking forward to the next meeting, but need to lose some weight or I will have to give my paperclip back. If we lose weight we get a paperclip to add to our chain, if we put weight on, we have to give one back. I have one... the starting one, I don't want to give it back =D

After the meeting I went to work and rented Hot Tub Time Machine, and went home and watched it (with the cat, who decided want to settle on my knee... I'm not complaining, but everytime he'd stretch, he'd almost fall off my knee and use his claws to hold on..... OUCH) I had planned on going for a walk, but when the movie finished I went outside and it was raining. By the time the rain stopped, I couldn't be bothered.

Duromine, has been giving me nightmares. I'm not longer an insomniac, but I'm having nightmares about large waves and being stranded by water and tides, and it's not very nice. Everytime I close my eyes I see and hear the waves =( I haven't had a nightmare in many many years, so I think my body is trying to tell me it does not like this drug. But I do.... it's working. I'm no longer snacking, no longer craving foods. Now I just have to organise so I have nice healthy food to eat at home.

“Life is full of choices, if you have the guts to go for it. That’s why I get immediately bored with anyone’s complaining about how boring their life is, or how bad their town is. Fucking leave & go somewhere else. Or don’t.” - HENRY ROLLINS.

I know of Henry Rollins, but never realised he was such a powerful speaker. Ever since Gala Darling did a short post about him, I've been looking him up, watching YouTube videos. He's a very wise man.

I can't believe it's almost Spring 2010... So much for this year being my year.... it's kinda sucked so far, apart from the awesomeness, like meeting lots of awesome peeps, epic concerts, and travel experiences. Physically, it's sucked =D I know what I have to do.... it's just getting started.

i was about to runaway

Had a emotional breakdown today.
I completely lost it.
There was no one home, and I was going to get into my car and leave.
I don't know where I was going to go. I was just going.
But mum and dad came home before I left.
I talked with mum a little.
Then she turned it and started going on about herself... again.
I was going to scream at her, but luckily didn't.
After I had relaxed, mum, dad and I went out to two peoples bay.
We climbed over the rocks and chased crabs. It was fun.
I discovered that if I sit and do nothing for too long I feel sad and depressed.
So I have to keep myself occupied.
I'm afraid that I'll never have any children. For couple of reasons.
1) PCOS (even though I don't have it bad. it scares me)
2) too shy to go out and meet people.
I was looking for a local psychologist last night.
But mum thinks I should try weight watchers. I think having a support network will help.
I just need to socialise. I'm like a Sim in Sims 2. My Social bar is getting lower, soon, if I don't socialise, the Social Bunny will appear. And I don't want him too, cos he's creepy.
I downloaded some music from new bands.
Secondhand Serenade (I like one of their songs, Fall For You... until it was played a hundred million times on the radio)
and Automatic Loveletter. 
The lead singer, Juilet Simms, sings in one of Secondhand Serenades' songs.
I love them both.
Fave songs so far are, Something More by Secondhand Serenade and Make-Up Smeared Eyes by Automatic Loveletter.
Juliet Simms is quite good looking. I sense a girl crush.

Idiots & Pretty Flowers

The town I live in is ran by idiots. today I was reading Thursday's newspaper, and was so shocked by what I read. A man in Albany started a facebook group to petition for Big W to open in town. The city council rejected Big W a couple of weeks ago. Well the man, has been "asked" by his boss to close the page down, or he'll lose his job. Because local businesses don't want to deal with a business that employs someone that doesn't support local business. FUCK YOU! I want Big W! I care about local businesses, but I also care about variety, and albany has over 25,000 people, I think we should get a Big W, or at least get to vote. Also 3 of the council members are sueing the council, but won't stand down. so they're sueing themselves???? YOU'RE ALL IDIOTS! YOU ALL SHOULD BE FIRED!

Today I went out with my dad to look for orchids. And we found some. My favourite flowers in the whole world, they only grow around here. They're called Queen of Sheba orchids and they're amazing. Just have a look.
They grow on tall thin stem and usually have 1-3 flowers on them, today we found one that had SEVEN flowers on one stem...
They come like these, and sometimes with less purple and more pink, we didn't find any pink ones today. They're quite small, the top photo was the size of an (Australian) 50c piece, but they're usually the size of an (Australian) 20c piece. I wish I could have one in my room, but it's illegal to pick them, and I wouldn't, and they only flower in the sun (they're sun orchids) and they only last about 5 days, before they die.

to you know who.

Feeling sad and depressed because everyone seems to be having such hard times in their lives and I feel bad for feeling so good. I know I've had my far share of shit, but everything that is happening to my friends is worse. One of my friends, mother has been diagnosed with Cancer, and I don't know how to comfort her. I've never, in my life had to deal with something like this. I've never been the comforting kind of friend. I'm the clown that made her laugh when she was having boy problems, I don't know how to deal with something like this. Something REAL.
All I can do, is be honest, and be myself. So this is for you. I know you'll like it. It's a Sharlto Copley picspam. It's hard to do a picspam of someone that has only been in 2 films in his whole entire life.

i love this photo, so you will to. it makes him look old, and you can see all his flaws, but that's why i love it.

All I can say, is I love you, and I'm here for you if you need it. I apoligise if I'm awkward about it, but the truth is, like you, I just don't know how to deal with this sort of stuff.

So how is everyone today? I got up late and spent the whole day doing nothing, but now I feel bad that I wasted the day. I did clean the kitchen a little and make Chocolate Fudge Brownies, but I have a whole to do list of things to do. I only have one full day off left.
My little sister is getting her costume for book week together. She's going as Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim and it looks freaking sweet. I can't post photos until after the day, because she wants it to be a surprise to her friends (and some of them follow this blog).

Finished watching Joan of Arc last night. It was the PG version with Leelee Sobieski as Joan, and Neil Patrick Harris as King Charles. Neil looked so bad with that stupid crap haircut. Now I want to watch the MA version with Mila Jovavich as Joan, but I don't know where to find it.

SHARLTO COPLEY being crazy. (watch.... only 10 seconds long)

I'm off now. Might be back.... might not be.

Molly Is...

... Feeling quite sad at the moment. There may be the slightest possibility that I won't be able to see Scott Pilgrim at the cinema. I may have to wait until it's on DVD. Stupid Albany cinema. *epic sadface*

This afternoon I've been helping my little sister Alex get her Ramona Flowers costume ready. It's book week at her school and they get to dress up as book characters, so my sister is going as Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim. Since we don't have the movie at the cinema, I'm not sure how many people will actually know who she is, but sometimes Albany people surprise me with their geekiness.

you're insane, but you might also be brilliant

Duromine - Day 4. Haven't eaten as much as I would of usually over the last 4 days, so it works. And I haven't felt hungry, but I've felt empty. Sleeping is okay. It takes me a really long time to get to sleep, I spend a little while tossing and turning, but I assume I fall asleep at some point. It hasn't got any worse since the first day, but I'm still hoping it doesn't get any worse.

I decided to check out eBay again. I stopped because I got a little addicted, but I thought, just a little look. I ended up buying a pair of Tortoise Frame Ray Ban Wayfarers for $40 with free postage. They're coming from Hong Kong, so there is a chance they will be fakes, but if they look like Ray Bans and work as sunglasses, I'll be happy, and if they're real, I'll be stoked =D
This is the photo from the listing. You can't really see the Tortoise frame, but I'm in love. I looked up how to tell the difference between fake and real Ray Bans, and from what I saw in the photos on the listing, all looks good, but I need to have them in my hand and look at them closely.

I started following Tim Roth on Twitter. It's a verified account and there is lots of photos of the cast of Lie To Me. I found out last night that Mr T Roth, backed out of playing Snape in Harry Potter. Could you imagine how epic Harry Potter would of been if...
... was Severus Snape? Not saying that Alan Rickman is doing a bad job. I love Alan Rickman, but holy crap people. Tim Roth would of fucking ruled. But that's okay, that's life. If everyone who was meant to play certain characters played them, Inglourious Basterds just wouldn't be as Epically awesome. Adam Sandler as the Bear Jew.... no thanks.

Anyway. I'm off now. I have an ultrasound to see if I have PCOS, or if I'm just crazy. I really need to pee, but I can't because I'm not allowed =(

Polyvore/Me Meme/Tiny Picspam

Today I was bored (I should be cleaning) so I made 2 polyvore sets dedicated to 2 blogger/polyvore buddies.

Do you girls like them? It took a lot of blog and polyvore stalking to figure out what you liked =D You're both so different and that's awesome.
Anyway, that's pretty much all I did today. I did go to Bunnings to get 2 new shelves for my book shelf (only got charged for one, thanks stupid checkout boy =D) My bookshelf is currently half empty. Also, does anyone know what I've done with my box of Nintendo 64 games? I can't find them anywhere. I'm sure they'll show up. I just had this urge to play Donkey Kong.

I have a new meme to do. I found it while trolling Jordan's blogger (FYI - she's abandoned us and moved to Tumblr... check it out.) So here it is. More random information to add to your "stalking" folder.

1. Where is your cell phone: in front of me. Within reach. Did I mention it's an iPhone?

7. Your favourite drink: Pepsi Max
8. Your dream/goal: I would love to own my own comic book/awesome store, but in Albany it wouldn't work. I also would like to either be a Interior Decorator, or run my own Magazine of Awesomeness.
9. What room are you in: My bedroom, in all it's messy glory
10. What are your hobbies: Don't have any "Hobbies" as such, but blogging takes up a lot of my time, so I guess you could say that. I also like to read, and I don't mind a little bit of Gardening every now and then.
11. What is your fear: Balloons, not being able to have children.
12. Where do you want to be in 6 years: In a relationship, or have been in a relationship. is 6 years I'll be 30 *epic sadface*
13. Where were you yesterday: Work for most of the day. It was election day, so lots of people wanted movies, and then it rained so it got even busier.

15. Muffins: Chocolate Chip
16. Wish list items: MOST CURRENT WISHLIST.

20. Your TV: Too big and slowly dying. There is a rather bright pink splodge right in the middle. It has something to do with magnets or something. I don't know. As soon as it dies I'm buying a new one... and LED one =D
21. Your pets: PC & Cous Cous (both Ginger cats), Trillian and Slarti (2 Weeros), numerous other birds.

Election Day & Other Nonsense

It's election day. I voted. Did you? I got in there, ignored all the people at the front that hand you things and lined up. WHO THE FUCK WAS I GOING TO VOTE FOR? It wasn't easy like last time. Do I vote for the women, because well, she's a women, or do I vote for the man, because well, he's a man. Or do I vote for another party, knowing that in the end their votes get given to the 2 main parties anyway. PS I know nothing about politics. I voted. I don't remember who for now, that's how sure of who I was voting for. I didn't want to do a donkey vote... I thought about writing DARTH VADER on the ballot paper, but decided that I touched the paper and my fingerprints were on it, so if they wanted they could find me.

Saw my cousin Logan today. He's so grown up now, almost has all his teeth, can walk, still can't really talk, but he does the cute "trying to talk". I had a conversation with him (I didn't understand anything he was saying) but it was awesome. Then he was helping my aunt (and his) and his mum (my aunt) pick lemons, and we'd pull the lemons of the tree and the tree with shake and recoil and he would laugh so much, it was so cute. He's such a little boy, he laughs at boy things, like when you throw such at people and it hits them, and when you drop something. Next Saturday I'm hoping to look after him all day. I hope so.

Duromine - Day 1 review. Full of energy all day, ate 2 meals, didn't snack at all, didn't even spend the whole day drinking Pepsi Max. At 11pm I felt tired. I thought maybe I wouldn't suffer from Insominia, so I went to bed. OH was I wrong. I've never even felt like that. I've had nights where I can't sleep because my brain is going a million miles an hour, but this was different, my brain was quiet, I really wanted to sleep, I snuggled in, closed my eyes and NOTHING! I just couldn't sleep. Luckily my clock is broken, so I didn't know what time it was. I assume I did manage to get to sleep, because I remember it being dark and closing my eyes, and then waking up and it was morning. But that feeling of completely empty brain, but not being able to sleep is quite strange. But in saying that, I don't feel tired this morning, but that could be because I have taken another Duromine tablet this morning =D At the moment, I'm feeling empty, but not hungry. I'm waiting for mum to come home with lunch. I have the long shift at work tonight. 1pm to 8pm. I like it, because there is always someone else there.

Don't forget to leave your suggestion for my photo project. I've got one so far from VanessaValkyria (thanks... PS guys.... check out her blog. It's awesome).

Currently listening to: Adam Lambert - For Your Entertainment. I bought it off iTunes after an American friend raved about it. Yesterday I bought the Australian version CD (which has a different... awesomer cover... which I can't find online, so I'll have to scan it later) I'd only listened to the singles until now. The whole album is awesome. DON'T JUDGE ME =P

Anyway. This post is very wordy. So here is my newest Polyvore set. After my post yesterday, I decided to recreate the "Geek Chic" style I love.... I think I did well.

Jeans & Tee

I want everything in that set, especially the Zombie wallet and green Casio watch.
I just found the coolest Dr Martens ever, but unfortunately they're photo-shopped, which is really really sad, because I want them ALL.
found: fallie
I really need to save and get myself a pair of Dr Martens... there is just so many different designs I don't know what to get, maybe just classic black for now.
