Eye yam drunkety. Hurrah!

This week was mostly filled with negative thoughts; the less said about that, the better. I think I'd like my next job-related stepping stone to be moving to a better stoopermarket, like Countdown Upper Hutt. I'm tired of Stokes Valley.

I had a good Day Off. I must confess, I did not get anything done that I Ought to do, like practisy-scooting; but I got some things done which I Wanted to do. Like buying three Anita Blake books, including the next-one-I-want-to-read... all from the specials tables at Whitcoulls, for 50% of their normal price. Three books I love for the price of one-and-a-half!! Ohmigoddess. :> It seemed to be meant-to-happen, since at each half of the store (the mall is being remodelled and the bookshop is split in half on the opposite sides of town) it took one look at the specials table, and then another, before I suddenly noticed that the exact books I wanted were THERE waiting for me. *sighs satisfactedly*

I got some time to look through Mum's beads tonight... she's helping me begin my magpie-like collection of glass beads by oh-so-generously giving me some of hers... it's so wonderful...

I can hear a party out the window in the darkness. Even though I know bascially what it's like, with bassy music and happy pissed people, I wish I could float over there above the trees and spy on them... mebbe soak up some good vibes from the folks who don't have to work on a Sunday morning. I think I had a small flying dream last night, or perhaps the night before. It was an uncomfortable flight, with lots of Fear of Falling; and confused enough without being broken awake by our Sammy-cat swearing violently and long-windedly at the neighbour at 5am in the morning outside my window. O_o

Another sunny day, and the sound of cicadas fills the air like a tinge of madness on the fringes of one's mind. I'm home this morning on my own, since Mum and Nana left early for Dunedin, on a trip to visit the places her aunt grew up, and to bury her ashes.

I've had two lovely feline fellows keeping me company, but no sign of Jinny. She must be Busy out there somewhere. I wish she would check in. I didn't sleep in nearly as long as I expected to. My sleep was not completely restful; with weird dreams and drooling on my pillow - ugh! This is probably due to the fact that I had a good dose of tequila with lime, orange and grapefruit juice last night, in a fairly short space of hours. I then proceeded to eat far too much of a yummy reheated vegherd's pie, and fell asleep in front of The Return Of The Jedi.

But hey, I was celebrating! Yes, I finally plucked up the courage to go out on the road as a licensed scooter driver. I even went to the shops and bought something - how's that for practical? I got tailgated along the main road, and passed by someone in a great hurry, but never mind. That's another thing I just have to get used to. I ought to go out again today before work for some more practice, while the roads are quiet.

I've found my cellphone-to-computer cable again, and I figured out how to get the software to upload one of those garbled strings of letters, numbers and symbols which is a ringtone. Sooo, I now have Hedwig's Theme as a ringtone. Yay! I then felt the need to coordinate my startup logo - so I found a neat little flying owl logo and added clouds, moon and stars to it. I think it even looks like a snowy owl... Hedwig flying atcha! *shrugs*

I'm running out of good computer games. I've played and replayed all the ones I have, until they're all pathetically easy to me and boring. I wanted to play Dune again, but there's some error with the copy I have which makes the game crash when I try to fly anywhere using the map in the ornithopter. I can get around that most of the time, but sometimes it's essential. Damnit. What shall I do now to waste time?

P.S. It's funny scooting past young boys playing by the side of the road. They think I'm a man (and who could tell, with me dressed up in a helmet and armoured jacket?) and call out, "'Sup, bro?" Heh heh. ^_^
