More Phone Photo's

Here are a few more phone photo's of random stuff in my life.....

This is a sandalwood elephant my mate in Hong Kong gave me several years ago. He lives on my desk under/on my monitor. Not sure if he wards off evil spirits (radiation OR the general public!) but I like him.

These are my favourite shoes at the moment. They are uber comfy & warm! I got them from a factory outlet - I waited ages for them - every time I went into the store they had plenty in sizes 11, 12 & 13, but none in my size! They are men's shoes & it took forever to find a pair in my little ole tootsie size!

This is what they look like when I put them up on my desk! The old fashioned phone looking thing to the left of my feet is my 2 way radio unit.

Most days I eat breakfast at my desk. Now that it has cooled down, porridge is back on the menu. It doesn't look very appetising, does it?

It takes bloody ripper when you add these goodies to it!

This is my favourite belt. I was not wearing these jeans when I took the photo so don't be smart about the undone fly! I've eaten so much in the past week I'm not even sure I'll get these jeans back on tomorrow night, nor do I need the belt to hold em up!

These are my favourite knickers at the moment. Super comfy boy legs & filled with peace & happiness & flowers! That is my hand you can see....

Lastly we have my gym bag. I love Emily the strange.
I am not normal :0)

I've actually been to the gym 3 times this week. Saturday, Sunday & Tuesday. I ran all three days. Wont get back there now til the weekend. I definitely need to make a concerted effort as I put on 2kgs alone last week (which are still with me despite the running) & winter is just about here. I don't want to undo all the good work I did last year. yeah yeah, bitch, moan, carry on. The muffin top is just not that attractive. It didn't stop me secretly eating a block of chocolate in 2 days at my desk this week either. Bah!

Yesterday I had an interesting conversation with a customer.....
Me: Good afternoon plumbing service
Him: Um. Hello. Ummmmmm. Hang on will YA? I'm just cleaning me chops. I've just been eating.
Me: Ah, Ok.
interesting sounds of "chops" & lips & saliva all smacking together for around 30 seconds. I can't be sure, but it is highly possible this old fella popped his false teeth in & out a couple of times - you know that suction kind of sound your grandparents made when popping their falsies in & out??? EWWWWWWW

I'm off to the footy on Friday night. Should be an awesome game! Geelong Cat's V Collingwood Magpies. They are the 2 top teams at the moment for those of you who are internationals or have no clue!!!! My cuz (J-man) is down from Sydney for the weekend & we are going with his girlfriend & her family who are Collywobble supporters. J-man barracks for the Swans, but I dare say he'll barrack for the Catters with me. Regardless, I just hope it is a close game. There will be lots of beer & shouting that's for sure. Should be a hoot!

Adventures from Plumbing Land

On arrival at work this morning, one of my fave plumbers said to me:

Plumber: You'll never guess what happened to me last week!!!
Me: No, probably not! What Happened?
Plumber: Well! you know how when you have to work on the ladies toilets in a hotel, & you put an "out of order" sign on the door outside the actual toilets?
Me: Yeah
Plumber: well, I was working at the #### Hotel in the ladies toilets & 2 chicks come in.
Me: yeah
Plumber: I was working on the basin, so you'd think they'd go & use one of the other toilets, coz there's like 3 other lots of ladies toilets at this joint.
Me: Oh dear.
Plumber: Na, it's worse. You know how when you really need to fart & you try to hold it in?
Me: giggling
Plumber: OMGawd Cat, it just went on & on! I had to leave!
Me: giggling lots
Plumber: I had to go into the TAB for 15 minutes before I was brave enough to go back in.
Me: still giggling.
Plumber: Why would a chick want you to hear her pee let alone take a dump! Or Fart! Or smell any of it!!!!!!
Me: Um. Humans are strange dude!

So. How was your week at work? Humans indeed are a strange breed & I've dealt with a number of demanding people today, proving to me once again that you cannot please everyone all of the time.

I was lucky enough to have Friday afternoon off work to catch up with my favorite Taswegian (sometime private blogger - Wanna) who was over for a birthday party. We went out for lunch & had a wander around the bike shops in Elizabeth Street & the Vic Market. It was great to catch up :0)

I also briefly caught up with Cinders & extremely briefly with CKK (read 2 minutes) before I had to catch my train back to the burbs for a work Social Club night. I think we need to organise a longer catch up!!!

I've been writing this post on & off all day & it really is a bit too disjointed. So. I'm going to hit publish post & try & finish work.

A sign for the Dunny!

This is is what is on the sign I just stuck up above the cistern in the ladies toilet at work.

1.If you are pissing & reading this at the same time, you are NOT supposed to be in here.

2.This is the Girls/Ladies toilet.

3.If you MUST piss in here can you please FLUSH the effing toilet. YOUR PISS STINKS.

4.And put the bloody seat back down while you are at it.

I don't think the culprit has been eating asparagus either; I think they just have a really bad diet. EWWWWWWW.

So. What's on your dunny wall?

" hi peaps of da world wat ya do'in"

is what my niece emailed me the other day!

So. S'up?

As usual I am extremely glad it is Friday! It's been a long week at work. Despite my complaints I do actually feel a sense of achievement & don't mind it that much. It's just that I'd rather it be the weekend if ya know what I mean!

Got invited to a singstar party tonight! Was a bit excited I must say, but one of the peeps holding the party has come down with a sore throat, so the party has been cancelled. Instead I'm out with one of my besties & some of her old work mates for a belated birthday dinner followed by drinks at wine bar somewhere out west. Should be fun.

I've made it to the gym twice this week. Sunday & last night. Do you have any idea how hard it is to run without your fave play list??? Man. My pod was flat last night & I had to listen to what ever shite was on the Teev at the gym. It was a serious struggle I tells ya.

Pod's all charged up now & ready to go. Kinda need to exercise a bit more. Not too happy with the muffin top I seem to have sprouted. Been trying to think of a catchy may muffin top bugger off slogan to inspire me to exercise more & eat less crap this month but have failed miserably. Do you think I can still go to the pub tonight if I go gym first??? LOL don't even want to know the answer to that.

I have actually had multiple alcohol free days both last week & this week (read 5, then 4) which must be a record for me. Now I've just gotta stop stuffing my face. Winter food is just too tasty!

Enough of my rabble. Have a safe weekend where ever you are; & Carn the mighty Cats!

Random Phone Photo's

This is my shoe. Why I took a photo I don't know! Possibly because I had to go looking for my Doc's to wear them to the Pixies concert recently. Maybe I thought I'd forgotten what they looked like. I remember a time when I only owned 2 pairs of shoes (this period of time went for nearly 10 years!). These & my Blunnies (Blundstone work boots). I wore my Doc's in heat waves.

This is the dress I was wearing the day I was wearing my Doc's. Again I have no idea why I took this pic. Yes, that is my left boob, maybe I was admiring the view that day!

This a story my niece (10 yrs) wrote back in January - she was on a mission to use all of my office stamps. Not sure if it will be big enough to read when I hit publish - let me know if you can't (or are interested enough) & I'll type it out. It's pretty funny.

My cat Rosy, sitting on the bath mat in my bathroom. Judging from the angle, I'd say I took this while I was in the bath. Her head looks rather triangular here. There is nothing sweeter than reading away in the tub, to have a little furry paw or face, silently bush against your face as she's put her 2 front feet up on the edge to SEE the water.

My cuz at the airport Friday night with her best mate, off on their 4 month adventure - Greece, UK, Spain, Italy, Paris, Turkey. I think that's all! Envious? Hell Yeah!

Her big brother, & Rock God from the gig a couple of weeks ago.

Their Dad. For some reason Jax decided to give her dad piggy tails. Here is one of them. I remember the first time I met this man, I thought he was soooooo coool - he had every ACDC record ever made.

He & his wife are overseas at the moment & my cousins have been attempting the garden watering. This is the grand master plan they were left. Due to water restrictions, it has been a struggle (& quite funny) to see them up at 6am watering stuff!

I took a couple of photo's to send to my aunt to prove they haven't killed off her garden.

Or any of her pot plants!

The quality of these Pic's is not the greatest, I don't have a super spesh phone that takes amazing quality photo's. So. What Photo's do you have on your phone??
