Whoops, forgot hair update. My brain was completely invaded with Aung San Suu Kyi and nationalism in the 1950's in Southeast Asia. Anyways.

It is SHORT. Shorter than I thought. Which is nice, cause I haven't had short hair in a long time. It's past my shoulders, but considering my hair was about 2 inches above my elbow, this is short.

I have alot of tiny thin little blonde foils through the whole head, and a heap of little red ones throuhout most of my head. Not *quite* what I wanted, but I need to be more specific next time. I have a swept fringe, which means it all goes across from one side to another. Sounds hideous, but looks good. I like it.

Hmmm. That is all I can think of to post about.

I want to go home and sleep, but I have to drive home, and I don't want to do that now because I'm tired and there will be traffic from hell. WOE.

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by asking you five questions of a very intimate and creepily personal nature. Or not so creepy/personal.
3. You WILL update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Questions from Calyx... )

YEAH. Again, praises must go to God. *snuggles God* He's so faithful.

I'll keep going until bedtime which shouldn't be too far away. WHOO. BED.

Tomorrow I must find a text for my Education assignment and hopefully get it approved. I'm kinda worried about that because apparently alot of people have been rejected because the tutors reckon their text hasn't got enough in it to be able to do the assignment. And we're all coming up with stuff they suggested. Bah. Must pray about it. I have the texts for my media studies assignment, so hopefully it should be all good there. I'm more worried about this education assignment than the media studies one. DUDE.

This might actually be the first Education subject I don't get a six (distinction) for. NOOO. Depending on how I go in this assignment, I might consider saying something to someone important. This subject has been handled terribly, and I don't honestly think it's that relevant. The tutors aren't obviously explaining things enough for people to do well, which is frustrating. Especially for someone like me, who LIKES doing well!

Everyone go comment on [ profile] iainc's journal. He posted. OMG.

My brain hurts. I did a 12-hour shift at work yesterday because someone called in sick, and no one else could stay. I kinda didn't mean to though...

Leanne: 'Catherine's sick. She can't come in.'
Me: 'Oh, not good. [She's getting married in 2 weeks!] I can stay if you want.'
Leanne: 'Do you have Uni?'
Me: 'Nope.'
Leanne: 'Stay till 7? It's a long day.'
Me: 'Ahhh...'
Leanne: 'Good. Yay.'
Me: *falls over*

So yes. Twelve hours, with 2 half-hour breaks in the middle-ish. Then a 7-hour today (6 hours and 1 hour paperwork), so I'm stuuuuuffed. And I got like, no assignment done. Woe. Must work on it tomorrow. Am currently searching for maritime boundaries in Southeast Asia to prove that most of the Melaka Straits are owned by Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia and thus the UN definition of piracy is stupid. Long story. Technically it's 12 miles off the coast of the country, with the rest of the ocean classed as international waters, but Indonesia is an archipelago with zillions of islands, so that kinda defeats the purpose.

My hair is getting more and more orange.

Am getting seriously grumpy. I have had a headache all afternoon and the computers at work DIED and now Firefox has eaten my bookmarks. *cries*

I arrived at work at 1pm. At approximately 1:05pm, the appointment book program, which has it's own server, crashed. Died. Completely kaput. We had NOTHING for TWO AND A HALF HOURS. Nada. Zilch. So we just randomly slotted patients in with Doctors unless they knew who they were seeing. No reciepts or medicare forms at all; we had to keep a list of all the patients who were seen, how they were billed, the doctor they saw, etc, so we could do the billing afterwards when the computers were eventually fixed. Nightmare. We couldn't make any appointments, we couldn't check to see if they were privately billed normally, nothing. We couldn't create files for new patients, and so the doctors had to hand-write notes for them, which made them annoyed, but they were wise enough to not complain about it. Several people just didn't get it...

Lady: 'I'd like to make an appointment to see Dr XXX.'
Me: 'I'm sorry, but our system is down and I can't make any appointments at this stage. Would you be able to call back in an hour or so?'
Lady: 'Oh. But I need to make an appointment.'
Me: 'I'm sorry, but the system is down and I can't make an appointment for you without the computer. It should be up fairly soon.'
Lady: 'Then how are you making appointments?'
Me: *mildly loses temper* 'WE CAN'T.'
Lady: 'Oh.'
Me: 'If you call back either later this afternoon or early tomorrow morning, we should be able to do something then.'
Lady: 'Oh, ok. But when do you think it'll be back up?'
Me: 'I'm not sure at this stage, but try again in an hour.'
Lady: 'Ok. Thanks.'
Me: *tears hair out*

Seriously, that's almost exactly what the conversation was like. Idiot. I ended up doing the billing for all the patients over the two and a half hours that whole afternoon. It was crazy. I don't think I got all of them because the banking was out, but that's ok. I'm sure we'll figure it out.

I'm going to bed.

I swear my hair is going more and more orange. Well, orange-gold. Hmm. *eyes hair*

Well, the moving has begun. I have decided that I want the house. It's so beautiful; wooden floors, 10ft ceilings, lovely windows and rooms...but as well as that, it's just been really *loved*. It's in beautiful condition, considering that it's about the same age as our house (pre-war). It's been freshly painting, it's clean and tidy, the kitchen is lovely and new-ish. Love!

Am sick of this assignment. I've kinda finished it (as in I've met the 600-900 word limit) but I could probably do a little more. Meh.

Today was ok. I'd had enough by the end. I'm tired; it's been a long and stressful week. But I will go to bed early, and get up at about 8am. Whee! Sleep-in!

I think I'm going to download the Dandy Warhols - We Used to be Friends. It's been playing in my head for three days straight.

ETA - Add to that Forever Young by Youth Group. Love.

I bought pretty shoes the other day. They're pointy-toe slips covered in sequins and beads. SO PRETTY. I love shoes. They're so not weight discriminatory. You can be 100kg and still look great in pretty shoes.

Am working on tute presentation. In reality, this should take me all of 2 minutes cause I'm basically regurgitating what he said in the lecture, but I just haven't been able to focus. Maybe when I've finished answering emails I'll focus. Nothing left to distract me.

What is up with my face? I have about 7-8 tiny red lumps on my right cheek AND I HAVE NO IDEA WHY. They started yesterday, but there are more of them today. They look like pimples, but there is no reason for me to get them, and I never used to get them on my cheek, and never this many at once. I think I'll cease with the sugar for a few days and see what happens (not that I really eat alot...). Lots of fruit and water. Looks like I'll be wearing make-up to work. Joy.

No word on the house for the parents. I want to know, dammit!

Food for yesterday:
- cereal
- bacon & egg sandwich (I was SO hungry at 10am after having breakfast at 6am)
- beef goulash & rice
- icecream

Not toooo bad. Could be much worse, but also could be much better. No vegies in there...
