My beautiful handmade-somewhere-near-Nimbin white-with-purple-spots holds-the-whole-world-of-tea-within-it teamug baby! D: IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND NOW IT'S LOST TO ME! LOST! I'm having to use a substitute cup and it feels all wrong. We're going to have a funeral service for it - because Alison is a crazy person - and so it's taunting me with it's broken existence from the kitchen bench. No, it's wrong to blame my baby, it did nothing to deserve such a fate.

I just really liked this teacup, okay. (I've been trying to find more of them every time I go back to Nimbin but while I can find stuff by the same person, I can't find the same cup style. I may have to live without it!)

It's my birthday on Thursday and me and a few friends are going out to have dinner at this place called Burgers & Beers that I've been meaning to go and try since they opened up in the central cities years and years ago. But since the earthquakey times they've reopened somewhere else so we're going to do it. I wish they had kangaroo burger. (My ex-Australian friend and I have been lamenting the lack of kangaroo meat in New Zealand and I don't get it. Why don't they ship it here? It's hardly any distance at all! Is it because of crazy customs laws or nor enough roo farms in Australia to export or because they think kiwis wouldn't want to eat it? I don't know! Whatever it is though, they should fix it. Because then I could have kangaroo steak.)

And I would like to have that steak off these plates. They're on sale! Don't even let me look at them! I love them so much though, look how wonderful they are! (I still want their facehugger too. Oooh, and I want these because they're a useful thing! Oh gods, why am I even looking at ThinkGeek? I love this site so bad but I've never bought anything from it. The postage always seems obscene. I tried to use it to buy a Deloren for a Christmas present a few years back and the postage on the forty dollar car was fifty dollars! THAT'S JUST NOT RIGHT.)

Lara and I keep missing out dinosaur show on Sunday nights and it makes me sad. I could probably find it online somewhere but I could have been watching it for free! Planet Dinosaur - all dinosaur documentary, all the time. (I considered, early this year, the serious career possibility of paleontologist because dinosaurs! and the study of life on earth through the existence of physical evidence! SO SEXY. And I thought, hey, biology and geology have got to be the big ones there and while they're hard, they'd also be doable. So I looked into it but it turns out it's all MATHS! and CHEMISTRY! and PHYSICS! and DID I MENTION MATCHES SPECIFICALLY CALCULUS! So, yeah, I gave up on that. All the fields I've ever been interested in pursuing are so science heavy, which is why they've always remained a mere interest instead of a thing I've actually gone on with. I know myself and I know how much I hate schooling, and schooling that I don't get is even worse.)

I'm feeling sort of tangenty this morning.

Oh, my screen just did it's changey thing. I downloaded this amazing program called f.lux that adjusts your computer display settings at night. Something about the computer screen simulates daylight so it's not great for you to be staring at the pretend sun late into the night etc etc. All I know is that since I've installed it my eyes are a million times happier even in the evenings. It looks weird when it's first installed but now I forget it's on most of the time. But yay for less eye stress!

My daddy was kind enough to send me dentist money which, yay!, means I get to go get these horrid trouble-making teeth removed. I think it's on the 15th of September but they've yet to send me the confirmation details. But I keep doing a little grin of happiness when I remember about it because I'll be pleased to not have to worry about it anymore. I've been putting off getting these teeth out for about four years because of the cost so it's such a relief.

I'm considering getting out of bed to go get some breakfast, but it would require getting out of bed and it's very warm and nice here. And I'd have to face the judgement of my broken cup...

Clearly you must learn the craft of pottery so you can construct a replacement!

I suspect my artistic skills would render this mug a... not mug-like in any way.

So you can now spell carcharodontosaurus, but how to pronounce it becomes a problem. Is it a car-char-odonto- saurus or a carch-aro etc. If your really interested in the doing dinosaurs as a possible career you could spend this year fixing up your maths, chemistry and physics etc. There are plenty of free classes going on the net also you could try and see if the polytech puts on adult education courses covering what you need. and then your local university must offer courses over the summer to get you up to speed.
Your local library should have all those subjects in the --maths for dummy's- books series.etc.
Something to work towards- job satisfaction with a good pay rate. anthropology not to your liking? Sageowl

It's car-car-oh-don-toe-saurus :) There are ways to improve my knowledge in those areas but I HATE maths/physics/etc. I don't mind chemistry so much even though I don't understand it, I still found it sort of enjoyable even when it hurt my brain. But as for all the others? HORRIBLE. They make me want to cry.

Anthropology is always a thing of interest, but the problem with that along with the schooling and small call for it, is that I'd only have interest in doing such a thing in Egypt or the Middle East. And there's already more people wanting to do those sorts of things than there are positions open for it.
