lol...yup, this semester hasn't been very good for me i dont think.

got another B, in Electronic music. Well, I figure it will be a B, dunno what the final grade will be but that's what I got for my final work anyway which is like 60% or something. and do i care?

kinda, a bit, but not really. the worst that can happen is...they could cancel my conjoint...or my scholarship...but,.....if they cancelled my conjoint then i could probably already graduate, and if they cancelled my scholarship, i have enough money to pay them back.


so yeah.


you know the kind of tired you get, when you get home from a hard day of work, and you know you'd been giving it your all the entire day? yeah, like that right now.

There's about 90kms on my motorcycle now....

it's still a bit finicky, i mean the engine only cut off...once? I think? but the good thing is that it happens when I'm coming to a stop, and you can restart motorcycle engines (not car engines!) from any gear, so I just restart it anyway, usually there's enough time for me to do it and not piss off the people behind me.

I really need to set my rear view mirrors so that I can actually see behind me...but....just haven't....

So yeah, I think it's coming up to the time where I need to do my first fill-up! That will be fun. I totally have no idea how to do it. Might ask one of the shell dudes, so if they spill any petrol, I don't have to pay.

OR do I?


And yeah, it was great weather today even though metservice said it would be poo.

oh well, im not complaining,....except for the wind which was really freaky on a bike. you take so much for granted in a car, travelling in your own little atmosphere...whereas when you're on a bike you're very much at the mercy of it. Across the bridge of the South Eastern is particularly daunting. But I lived! And it was exciting. And there' s just something about riding a motorcycle that is just...

I thoroughly recommend it.

Lilburn was okay. Robbie won again. lol. yeah, the argument can be made that its about a good piece not about giving money out


but still lol

i guess the rest of the ensemble pieces just weren't good enough?


great new technology called Microsoft Silverlight, basically lets you run .NET crossplatform within your browser as a plugin. is really good (follow the instruction at the bottom to get the 1.1 alpha)

I was late home from work today.


Because we closed 5 minutes late.


Okay so this old balding man comes in at about 9.30, and gets angry. Why? Because we don't have the January issue of the Australian Cleo. Yeah. JANUARY. This is from a company whose policy is to only have the most current one on the shelf...

So yeah. He gets all bitchy, and then when he's told that he could try contacting the magazine and seeing if they have back issues, he asks us to do that.

Now, let me make it clear that normally, I really like customers. I do my job to make them happy. But that guy was just being a lazy ass. I mean, if we called, we wouldn't be treated any differently. And the difference is, he's the one who wants the magazine. We wouldn't be making any money (actually probably losing some from the lost productivity) and its just a general no.

But then he gets angry.

And then he talks about how we have heaps of wasted space in the store, and we should use it to hold old magazines.

Idiot. We get money back on returns.
So yeah. Buying presents for people....m'goshkoshbosh

it's hard, really hard, i mean, you always want to mean well, but theres always the "what if"

"what if im being stingy"
"what if they wont like it"

etcetc etc but anyway yeah pt1 done anyway

so yeah i was walking out of the store and this fat ass maori dude asks me for change

and i gave him the dollar coin i was holding


you could say "i gave it to him to make myself feel better because im giving to society"

but if society is a fat maori dude who's sitting on a bench, will it REALLY make you feel better?

i mean, how'd he get fat anyway

eating cardboard? wth. you know?

but anyway i gave it to him and that was that

Just downloaded Ratatouille cute! I love the ending theme, "End Creditouilles" :D

Here's a couple of books I want to read:

Stardust - Neil Gaiman
The Da Da De Da Da Code - Robert Rankin
Darkly Dreaming Dexter - ...someone
Digging To Maerica
The Dreaming Void - Peter K Anderson or something like that.

And yeah. There was this hungus poly woman upstairs by the bargain table, and she was enveloping the table, and slapping her hands down on the books for no apparent reason.

At the tills.
Henry: "would you like a bag with that sir"?
Customer: "No, it's okay"

Man, what's with this bizarre Auckland weather! I woke up at 8:15, and it was shining really bright and everything was warm. And then at 9:00, it gets snap cold and BAM it's raining hard and freezing. (and i was gonna ride my motorbike to the library! grrrr)

I guess Spring is here.
