Oh no, I'm an eBay addict.

5th-Feb-2007 02:26 pm - Free stuff
head boy
I've become addicted to the hunt for free stuff just lately. I came across a website that listed some of the many vouchers, offers and free samples out there and ordered a bunch of them. I've been sent cat food, shampoo, make up and money off coupons to my door, and I want more. Plus, most of the stuff I've tried are brands that I probably wouldn't have risked spending money on otherwise, yet now I know if I like them and am safe to buy. Hooray for samples!

In related news, having opened a knew bank account, I recieved my debit card the other day and had to buy something with it. I immediately subscribed to Cosmo and am awaiting a free make up gift set. It pleases me. :D

Have you ever been cornered by someone on a night out who knows your name, your sister's name, your school year and pretty much everything about you, but you have no idea who they are? You don't recognise their face, their name or any of the people they are with, but apparently, you used to be great friends. And have you ever then broken out into a huge fake grin, squeed loudly, hugged them, squealed 'how could I have forgotten you?' at the top of your voice and promised to catch up with them sometime, only to walk away with a guilty and confused look on your face because they still don't ring a bell? Happened to me at the weekend. *cringe*
1st-Jan-2007 03:22 pm - Seasons greetings, y'all.
Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a great Christmas. It's been so busy I've hardly had time to spare. Work has been extra manic and the family extra demanding. Hope my neglected flist had a good time.

A confession:

A cousin of mine very kindly gave me and my sis his old Playstation when he visited, and we've spent every spare moment since redoing our favourite game Crash Bandicoot 2. We've forgotten most of the secret areas, and in a fit of frustration, I caved and looked on the internet for hints. Now I feel cheap and dirty. *face palm*
28th-Nov-2006 10:42 pm - Fly-by post. 'Bout time.
how 'bout no?
+ Got a new car. Silver-green Corsa. Yay!
+ The Beast gets bigger and wilder daily. Eats, poops and shreds for all she's worth. Still cute.
+ The first Christmas decs are up.
+ Starting to resent a certain male for no apparent reason other than what would be considered 'sentimental girl stuff'. Gives me angry tail. *frustrated face*
+ Am loving Futurama more and more as I watch it. (Fry/Leela!)
+ Have rediscovered my Farscape DVDs.
+ Need. To. Go. Shopping.

I am now demoted to kitten chew toy status. She claws and chews me as we speak in her cute, kittenish way. For those of you who wanted to see, I present Twiglet, scourge of our household. Squee!

Just because I can't resist, and because I always lament that I have no special skills.

Bold the skills you possess and italicize those you wish you did. Add one new ability you're proud to have to the bottom of the list and tag five friends to do the same.

I tag dawnie1970, just because it's her birthday and it's almost like the law, and anyone else who wants to have a go. :)

12th-Sep-2006 03:54 pm - Tomato warning
oh shi

I was merrily fulfilling my salad preparation duty at work today when I came across some cherry tomatoes in the fridge. 

'Those would look nice on my side salads', thought I, so I got to work washing them. They were perhaps over-ripe, but they tasted good. I reached for the knife with which to slice them in half.

The very first specimen proceeded to squirt more juice than you could possibly imagine all over my white shirt as soon as I went to cut it. I was dripping in the stuff. God knows how one small item could have held so much liquid.

I eyed the rest of the punnet with much suspicion after that and decided against neat half-circles. Let the customers eat them whole. They clearly don't appreciate being sliced.

I have to be back at work in an hour and had to come all the way home to change.

Thus, a warning. Leave your cherry tomatoes alone, folks.

This week's stupid things list:

1) Have volunteered for extra shifts (and extra wages) and am now working everyday next week. Until Thursday.

2) Forgot to call friend back.

3) Had Coke spilled on nice white skirt.

4) Am on period.

5) Feeling conflicted, frustrated and generally out of sorts over a certain annoying someone who shall remain nameless. Boys suck.

6) Muse is broken and sorely missed.

7) Almost cried and got emotional watching some random athletes complete a marathon. Stupid hormones.

25th-Aug-2006 02:41 pm - Obligatory customer rant

I have two new terms of endearment to add to the list as of last nights shift, both of which came from the same man. *is mildly proud*

- luv
- darlin'
- sweetheart
- duck/ducky
- hon

and now

- princess
- baby

The second one is slightly disturbing though. Hmm.


21st-Aug-2006 01:26 pm - *dies*
Frelling busy week with work, work and more work, extra shifts, organising get togethers with fellow ex-students, having friends of the family (and their small children) over for the weekend and entertaining them, nights out and the subsequent wasted day after, kick-starting a relationship and replying to tons of emails, texts and phone calls. Am exhausted.

Livejournal and my flist have suffered as a result. *waves groggily and apologetically* Hope I haven't missed anything. To top it all off, I think another virus is attacking and I haven't the patience, strength or emotional stability to deal with it. It's already crashed the computer once and erased this post. So I'll pretend everything is okay and do the meme samsom tagged me for instead.

Once tagged by this entry, write a blog entry of some kind with six random facts about yourself. In the end of it, pick six of your friends and tag them! (No tag backs.) This explanation must be included, of course.

I tag secondalto, 43100, lemony69, rinoared, myfeetshowit and dawnie1970. :)
13th-Aug-2006 10:00 pm - How To Be A Customer - Appendix I
1) Please do not compress the sugar in the bowls provided into flattened and hardened crusts with the back of your spoon. Drawing a smiley face in it also does not excuse the action.

2) Attempting to trick your waitress into reclaiming used chocolate mints by painstakingly reconstructing the tiny packet into an uneaten replica will not work.

3) Please be advised that the kitchen door is not soundproof. You waitress can still hear you once she has departed the main restaurant.

4) For the second time, the sign on the restroom door that says 'not in use' really does mean that you cannot use said restroom. Attempting to do so will in fact reveal that a) the door itself is faulty and will not open properly, b) the subsequent hallway is being used as a storeroom and contains furniture blocking the way to the restroom, and c) that the toilets in the restroom itself DO NOT WORK. Embarrassment and a wasted journey will likely be the only results.

5) The gravy is on its way. Please do not panic.

Thank you.

Is it wrong to feel happy and pleased when sorting your underwear drawer?

I must have spent a small fortune the other day buying some very well deserved clothes. I had about three bras left that were still elasticated and threw out about ten others I hadn't worn for a good seven or so years. Ditto with the pants. They were big and ugly and nasty. Now I have many frilly, pretty, colourful and gawd-darn sexy panties and bras that actually hold stuff up. And it makes me smile. Am I bad? They are also all sorted and organised into neat little piles. *geeky joy*
