Feeling Special

Well that's what's going on for me today. I'm feeling very very special! I spoke to Claire on the phone just before. She's the one getting married in 3 and a half weeks (why I'm going to Tassie). And we talked about me singing at her reception and what's going on with that. I was just thinking about how special it is that she and Brenton want to include me in what is one of the most important days of their lives. Forget what I'm actually doing, it's just such an honour to be asked to be a part of their special day. And she asked me to come to her hens night too. I can't wait!

I leave for Tassie in 3 weeks today! YAY!

Well our demo cd is almost done! For those of you not in the know, Ingrid and I are in an acoustic duo and we recorded our demo cd a few weeks ago. I've been listening to it some more to see what I think needs to be changed and I'm almost completely happy with it. One or two things that need altering, but I'm so excited about having a finished product!

I'm not sure what it is about music, but it brings me alive somehow. I am rarely anywhere without sound. Most of the time it's a musical sound. I don't like silence much. I'm not entirely sure why. Unless I'm sleeping of course! Then silence is great!!

I love singing! It just makes me feel more alive somehow. It expresses things in me that mere words cannot do. I also love playing the piano. It really does something for me. I like playing music in general, but I hardly play my other instruments these day, so the piano is really what I'm focussing on instrumentally. My violin is very neglected these days, as is my trumpet and my guitar. *sigh* I really get so much joy from singing and playing the piano. It feels like part of me would be very sad if I wasn't able to express this part of me. As it is, I don't feel like I get to do it enough. I'd love to do more with my music. Which is why I can't wait to get out and play some gigs with Ingrid!

Hellooooo Sailor!

Ok, ignore the title...

But I am going to Tassie!!! I just booked my boat trip over there! I leave at 9pm on June 21st! I'm so excited! Some friends of mine are getting married in Longford (about 20 mins south east of Launceston), and they have asked me to sing at their reception! I feel so honoured to be asked such a thing! So I'm taking the opportunity to stay for a bit of a holiday. It'll be great to catch up with all my Tassie friends.

At the moment I'm booked to go on Jun 21 and come back on July 11, but ideally I'd like to stay until July 19 (an extra week) to see all the Fusion people come down for Foundations. I want to see some of my friends graduate Diploma on July 18. But I don't know if I can afford to stay that long. We'll see how things pan out. I can change my boat booking if I need to.


All you Fusion people (and Tassie people), I can't wait to see you again!!!!!!!!

I must say I'm not looking forward to the boat trip though. I get indescribbly sea sick. But if I'm going to be there for so long and I'm going to be travelling all over the state I really need my car. The trip is going to suck... Watch out anyone sitting near me...

Dreamy Sigh...

I'm so in love with Josh Groban... Ok, so I'm not actually in love with him, because I've never met the man. If you have no idea who he is:


I'm in love with the idea of him. I want someone to sing to me like that.

*insert over dramatic dreamy sigh*

Here is he:

What is up with the comedic world? Last night I went to the comedy club in Melbourne for dinner and a show and can I say up front what a huge disappointment it was. There were 4 comedians on for the whole night and none of them were very good at all. All of their acts were based on swearing (so over the top it was unnecessary and took away from anything else they were trying to say), negativity, bagging out people groups, and sex. YAWN!!!! What's wrong with people's brains?!! I don't necessarily want an intellectual routine, but one that requires even the smallest amount of brain power to devise. COME ON! How hard is it to actually be funny if you're supposed to be a comedian. I don't think it's comedy when you call back on material that only appeals to the lowest common denomenator. it's honestly pathetic. I really enjoy comedy that is funny because of the subject material, not because of swearing used to liven up the otherwise boring story. I'm seriously disappointent in last night's so-called comics.

Quick blog!

Just needed to get my daily blog fix. It's ok Megan. Breathe...

So I'm going to the comedy club tonight with Jenny for dinner and a show. Hope it's funny. I've never heard of any of the comedians...

The Night is Young

OH I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! I was in this online bidding competition through the nova website (radio station nova). You just bid points you rack up by doing stuff on the site. I've been a member for quite a long time, so I've racked up quite a lot of points! Anyway, I was bidding for a double pass to see 'Evermore' on June 18th at the Hi Fi bar. And guess what?! I GOT THEM!!!!!! YAY!!!! So I'm off to see Evermore in just under 3 weeks! I love them, so I'm heaps excited about it! Cost me most of my points, but what good are the points if I never get anything for them right? I'm so stoked!!! Now to find someone to give the second ticket to! Let the emotional blackmailing begin!

I've been doing some more ponderings. I have been watching a bit of big brother. Ok, before you groan and dismiss the rest of the post, give me a chance to explain. I actually find it a really inetersting exercise in studying group dynamics. As well as how the individual functions within that. They seemed to choose the housemates based on their 'strong personalities' and their willingness to be outgoing and act, not caring what others think. They all stated how confident they were, but looking at their behaviour I am told a different story of how they feel about themselves. I think confidence is quite often misinterpreted. I mean, other things are mistaken for confidence. Confidence to me doesn't mean that you have to be loud or abnoxious, but rather that you are comfortable with who you are, and you don't feel the need to get defensive. The loud people seem to get labelled the confident ones, but sometimes that can be the complete opposite. They are so insecure about who they are that they feel the need to cover themselves up with masks and play out a role, rather than being who they are. I think insecurity is often masked as confidence.

These people seem to think they have so much confidence. Genuine confidence. What they keep feeding each other is advice like, "Just be yourself. Who cares about anyone else or what they think?" And that's what's wrong with the world. 6 billion people doing their own thing. I think it's incredibly important to be in touch with yourself enough to choose how it is appropriate to behave amongst others. It is not every man/woman/dog for himself. Life is about working together and choosing to behave in a way that is going to be beneficial for everyone around you. The bible says "Don't do anything if it causes your brother to stumble". I totally agree with that. There are certain things we ought not to do, even though it may not be harmful to me, it may be harmful for another. I think that's what causes so much conflict in the big brother house. They all actually believe that the best thing to do is just be yourelf, scerw everyone else. That's the right thing to do. It's fantastic to watch them all acting this out and then wondering why people end up hating them. Because if you don't care about someone else, why are they going to care about you? Treating people the way you want to be treated only works if you care about other people.

Do you ever just ponder? I was doing some musing, some pondering, some cogitating, some contemplating, some ruminating, some reflecting. I like to reflect. I love my journal. My actual physical journal that is, it's pink and so pretty! I find it so facinating delving into the self reflection side of life. I find it so helpful to understand myself better. Ok Fusion people, you can stop laughing and convulsing on the floor now. Poor Diploma students are so traumatised by journalling!

Do you know when you are wearing a mask? I find that sometimes I am so used to the mask that I wear that I'm not even aware that I'm wearing it. I was thinking about this today because of last night. When I went home I thought about my behaviour and realised that I don't think I really accurately represented who I am. I tend to hide behind things. I'm not even sure what half the time. I don't feel settled in myself when I wear masks. Something just feels out of place, or I feel unsettled or something. I don't even know how to explain it. There is something in me that resists letting down the defences and letting people see the real me. It's an unconscious reaction, not a response based on reality. I'm not even aware I'm doing it most of the time at the time. It's only afterwards that I realise. I have my defences up for some reason. I want to be more self aware so that I can tell when I'm not accurately representing myself. I want people to get to know the real me, not the surface me. I was journalling about that this afternoon. I was asking God to show me more of myself so that I can get rid of those things that stop me reaching my full potential. I don't want to miss out on anything He has planned for me, and that means getting rid of the behaviours in my life that prevent me from living out that potential. So that's something I was pondering today and yesterday. Who am I really? And how do I accurately convey that to others? What gets in the way of this, and how do I go about cleansing my life of those behaviours?

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday dear Bowen!
Happy birthday to you!

I hope you have a fantastic day Bowen (aka Zormie)!!!


I don't think I suffer form Mondayitis at all. That may have something to do with the fact that I don't have a job though...

So the mystery of the revhead is solved. It is actually Martin, the pastor of my church. Very well done though! It took us three weeks to uncover your identity, and it wasn't even me who uncovered it. I tip my hat to you Danny! Well, I would if I was wearing a hat anyway. I'm wearing a head band, can you tip that?

Has anyone noticed that the starting to 'the chariot' by the cat empire sounds like the red dwarf starting? GO RED DWARF!!!!!!!

I have a double bed now! WOOT! Dad and I put it up last night. It's a futon bed. Great stuff! It's so low it's practically on the ground. I just love it! How exciting! I love rearranging my room! A change is not as good as a holiday however. Whoever came up with that saying never went on holidays is my guess.

I'm on a fitness kick at the moment. Lots of walking and exercise for me! I'm sooooooo lazy and unfit... ug... I looked at this chart thing last night that says what your healthy weight range is for your height... yeah... so depressing... so FITNESS KICK!!!

I'm famous! AGAIN!

Ok, so i think I'm doing really well at being in the media so far this year! I've sung on fox FM, been in a hollywood movie and now I've been on channel 10's hit show 'video hits'. Ok, so it's not such a claim to fame, but I was on tv this morning! Axle hosted the show from last weekend's Aussie Idol Auditions, and I was in the background of the last shot with him and Andrew G as they were signing off. The other 3 people I went with were on it too, but I was the one right up front and centre! GO ME! So Luke, Naomi and Kathryn were all on video hits this morning too. We're all going to be famous! People are going to be walking down the street and screaming when they recognise us! I wasn't on for like a second or anything either! It was a good 2 mintues! Anyway, it was cool, I taped it if anyone wants to see it!

My parents got home from their holiday today. It's nice to have them home. I did miss them of course, coz I love them. But I did enjoy having some more space while they were gone. This has confirmed for me that I would like to move out of home when I can afford to. Should be another 2 months I think. Don't get me wrong, I love my family, but I also enjoy my independance and space.

So there is the world of Megan for today.

Friday, May 20, 2005

Everyone needs to somehow get a hold of a song called "fiddle and the drum" by 'a perfect circle'. It is just an incredible song! 'A perfect circle' are usually a pretty hardcore metal band, but this is an acappella song where the lead singer has just dubbed himself over himself 3 times. It's a great song with some great commentry on America going to war. I suggest you all get a hold of it somehow. I'm addicted to it at the moment.

My parents get home tomorrow and I still haven't rearranged the house. I was going to, but I can't think of anything to do! So we've just filled their walk in warddrobe with balloons. How exciting... I have to think of something cool to do!!!! Perhaps I can bring the outside dining setting inside, and put the inside dining setting outside. Ug, that's so lame! I wanted to do something fun! My olds have been away for 3 weeks up in NSW. Dad took long service leave this term and Mum just took 3 weeks off work so they could go away. I've been chatting to them on the phone a lot and it sounds like they're having a fantastic time. It'll be nice to see them again tomorrow, but it has also been great to have some more space while they were away. I guess I'm just used to my independance coz I've been living out of home for so long. Moving back home wasn't a huge adjustment because my parents are fairly easy going, but it does take some adjusting. I'm thinking I'll move back out again in a couple of months when I'm more financially able to.

Well I saw it! Episode 3! And can I just say it was fully awesome! I was so impressed! I watched wpisode 1 on Tuesday and episode 2 on Wednesday, then that night went to see episode 3. So I was all caught up on my star wars knowledge by the time I got to see the latest inslalment. I was not disappointed. I remember thinking how harsh everyone was on episodes 1 and 2, and that I thought they weren't that bad, then i watched them again and realised that yes, they did suck. But not episode 3! Go Anakin! He did a great job. There is actually some emotion in this movie from the actors! I am just highly impressed. It's sad that there are no more movies. Or will they make episode 3.5? Ok, so they won't, but now I need to go back and watch 4, 5 and 6 again just to see the follow on. I won't spoil anything for those of you that haven't seen it, but it rocks! And I want to go see it again! If you want to go see it, call me and I'll come with you!

(Note the star wars music as the post title? I hope that was understandable!)

So I ripped a hole in my new jeans last night. They are my fav pants too!!!! I'd wear them every day if they didn't need washing. Well, brilliant me fell over. I was walking back from Coles with Casey after getting supplies for the movie and I stood in a ditchy thing and fell over. Hurt my left ankle, busted my right knee (lovely bleeding graze), and put a huge rip in my new jeans at the right knee. Waaaaaahhhhhh!!!!!!! And I hurt my right hand. Megan is officially an idiot. Apparently walking is too difficult for me...

Wednesday, May 18, 2005


I spoke to my mum this morning, and my parents are in Sydney today. I'm so jealous. I have so many friends in Sydney who I'd love to be catching up with! Take comfort Sydneysiders that my parents are in your wonderful city. They're going to see a matinee of 'the lion king' too! Argh! Turning...green...with...envy...

Actually the last time I was in Sydney was on a school music camp (we were playing in a competition in Sydney) and the memory that stands out the most are people kicking pigeons. So that's what I think of when I think of Sydney. It's good for pigeon kicking. Hey, that could be a good tourist slogan! "Come to Sydney. Kick a pigeon." You should put that to your state tourism board or something Sydneysiders! Ah Megan, your genius knows no bounds...

Star Wars Episode 3 is tonight! WOOT! I'm going with a bunch of work mates which is highly exciting! We've been to the other 2 midnight premiers, so we thought we'd make it a hattrick and do this one too. Should be a bit of fun. It was awesome last time. We had fun giggling at the people who dressed up. Not in a mean way, but you must admit, they look pretty funny!

Can I just say how much I'm in love with coldplay? They are just so awesome! They just released a new single!!! It's called "speed of sound" and it's just increidible! I wish I could write music like that... *sigh* I'm getting their knew album as soon as it comes out! And has anyone seen their live DVD?! I adore it! If they ever tour here I'm there with bells on! Minus the bells.... coz then I'd just look weird and every time I moved there'd be bell noises and yeah, that'd be annoying.

Passing Time

So yeah, I'm really just killing time today. I'm still suffering from my bout of viral gastro. Yummy yummy! I feel a heap better than I did yesterday, but I still feel pretty gross. Hoping to be all better tomorrow coz I'm supposed to be going to the episode 3 midnight premiere!!! I so want to go to that! I think I might go even if I am still sick, but not if I'm still throwing up sick, then I'll have to stay home. Oh I'm so torn! Anyone know of any quick fixes for this? Sure my doctor said I just had to wait it out, but what does he know right? Pfft... doctors. Nah, I love my doctor. He's such a cack! I always leave his office feeling better.

I haven't left the house today. I want to do something, but I don't feel up to it. Perhaps I'll go and finish watching eipsode 1 and then start on 2, I need to catch up before episode 3 tomorrow. Ok, time to get back on the couch I guess.

Vomit city

Well I have viral gastro. How fun is that? Ug. I started feeling ill at about 4am and I've thrown up quite a few times today, went to see the doc this arvo and he said I had viral gastro. It'll take a few days to clear up. So yeah, I'm feeling pretty disgusting right now. But I do have a great doctor. He cheered me up. I have no idea how I got this, I don't know anyone who's sick. So everyone feel sorry for me and give me lots of sympathy! :)

Ged oudda ereee

Well yesterday was certainly an interesting day. I got about an hour and a half of sleep, then got up at 1:15am to go an audition for Australian Idol 3. Ug. It was rather cold too! We (and when I say we I mean myself, Kathryn, Luke and Naomi) got there (after a detour via a 24 hour maccas) at about 3am and lined up for the long wait. There were heaps of people there already, it was kinda crazy. We only had 2 blankets between the four of us (good organisation I know) and we had to sit on one of those coz the ground was all dirty and rocky where we were, so Kathryn and I headed back home to get doonas and pillows for everyone. That was much better!

So we were in this giant queue (or sleep out) until about 6:30am when they moved us into a line inside the venue (but still outside), but that was handled so badly, that the queues we had been in no longer meant anything, so the people who had got there last we up the front of the queue!!! What's the point of camping out?! ARGH! So unfair! The line snaked around like 5 or 6 times or something like that, but then instead of moving around in line, everyone just ran for the gate! The security people were like "NO! Wait!", but it was too late. So now we're like 2/3 of the way down the queue instead of about 1/4 of the way down it. We had to queue up outside for about 8 hours. Then we finally got inside at about 11am, and to wait inside for another 3 and a half hours.

I was finally called in for my audition at 2:30pm. By this time I certainly wasn't feeling very well. I'd hardly eaten, and I was so nervous I'd been almost vomitting all morning. I was kinda over the really nervous thing just because I was so tired. I was so tired (and feeling a bit sick from sleep deprivation) though that I wasn't functioning very well. So I finally got in the line inside the audition rooms and all these awesome singers were being rejected, you could hear them through the doors, and no one was coming out with blue slips (to get through). So I wasn't particulalry encouraged! Then I went in, sang the chorus of my song (which was '10 days' by Missy Higgins) and was told "Thanks, but you won't be going through to the next round". Well, that was it. All that for one sentance from some judges. Oh, and you don't get to see Marcia, Mark and Kyle either, there are some other judges, then you get to see the producers if the first guys like you, then if they like you, you get a ticket thing to get you into see marcia, mark and kyle next week. Believe it or not, but something protreyed on tv isn't acurate!

So there you go. That's my thrilling Australian Idol experience. I just wanted to make it past one round, or even just one set of judges would have been nice. I know it's only Australian Idol, and I shouldn't really care, and I'm not shattered or anything like that. But I am disappointed. I did want to get past just one round. I almost had myself convinced that I could too. I'm not sure whether it's a good thing or not that I get so much positive reinforcement. Has that given me an unrealistic perception of myself? I think about all those really crapy singers you see who think they're good coz everyone keeps telling them they are. I hope that's not me. I'm pretty sure it's not to that extreme, but perhaps in a more moderate case it is. Not that I don't mind positive reinforcement, thanks to those who give it to me. I just wonder what it was that meant I didn't make the cut. I wish I could go back and ask them. But I wasn't really thinking clearly what with all the sleep deprivation and nerves and disappointment at not even making it through the first lot of judges.

My brother on the other hand did make it past the first round of judges! Yay for him! Well done Luke! I'm proud of you! He got to see the producers, but then they said he wouldn't go through to see marcia, mark and kyle. But I'm also heaps annoyed! He didn't even want to go to the auditions, I practically dragged him there, and he didn't really want to get through, but no, he gets through and I don't. Grrr! But he is a great singer, so well done to him. It still sucks though...

I slept so much last night! I went to bed at 5:30pm, got up at 9pm, went back to bed at 10:30pm and got up this morning at 8am. Oh yeah! So much sleeping! I'm still tired though damnit. I might even have to have a nap this arvo. I think my body clock is going to have to readjust after missing a night's sleep.

Oh well, there is my longest blog yet, my rant and rave about Australian Idol and it's crushing defeat of me. Haha! Love to you all!

Friday, May 13, 2005


That's all I have to say. I'll tell you more after I've slept for an eternity.

Wednesday, May 11, 2005


Thanks to the brilliance of manual coding (thanks for the help Bowen!) I now have links to other peoples blogs on the bottom of the left sidebar of my blog!!!! If anyone else wants me to link to them, just send me your blog address and I will! How exciting! Oh how addicted to blogging am I right now!

Yes I'm going to do it...

Well the time has finally come! It is time for Australian Idol 3! Haha! Ok, some of you giggled, some of you groaned, some of you were a little excited, some of you fell over coz you can't control your laughter. I have no delusions of grandeur that I'm going to win the competition or anything insane like that, but I do want to have a go at just getting through the first round. I just want to get through the first round. That's all I want. I think it'd be heaps fun and an interesting experience. I'm going to go this Friday at like 4am or something equally as insane. Yeah, singing after not having warmed up properly and not having slept is obviously a good idea. But I have wanted to do this for 18 months now, so i'm going to do it this year! Unfortunately a clash of events meant I couldn't go last year, so this is my year! My year of tremendous mediocrity! GO ME!!! Everyone needs to be sending good vibes my way on Friday, coz that totally works! Or not... ok so yeah, don't do anything and wait for me to let you know how I went. But yay! I'm going to embarrass myself on national television!!!! I wonder if I'll get on tv...

Looks like I'll be getting there at 3am now, so getting up at like 1:30am, oh that's so wrong!!!

Because we all know how accurate and important internet quizzes are!

You Will Die at Age 76


You're pretty average when it comes to how you live...

And how you'll die as well.

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to obedience and warmth.

In love, you feel the most alive when your partner is patient and never willing to give up on you.

You'd like to your lover to think you are loyal and faithful... that you'll never change.

You would be forced to break up with someone who was ruthless, cold-blooded, and sarcastic.

Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.

Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.

You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.

In this moment, you think of love as commitment. Love only works when both people are totally devoted.

I had some seriously weird dreams last night. I dreamt I was on deal or no deal, that was fully awesome! A friend of mine was on that last week (in real life, not in a dream)! We all went over to her (Kelly's) place and watched it. She won $6,800, which is pretty nice for an afternoons work in my book! Then I had this weird dream that my friend Anna was pregnant and I went to the 'hospital' with her when she went into labour. But it wasn't a hospital we went to, it was the top floor of MYER in Northland (local shopping centre). And apparently that's what you do. It was so odd! Then I had this dream I was in Germany and I'd been there for a couple of months and I'd just forgotten to tell my friend who lives in Germany (Julia) that I was there. My brain likes to do weird things while I sleep. What are the significance of dreams? I did a bit of dream interpretation theroy study in year 12 Psychology (many years ago now) and yeah, it's just weird. Who wants to interpret these for me?

A bunch of bananas

Well just thought I'd show you some of my friends. This was taken on boxing day at our christmas get together. from left to right is Anna, Rob, Me, Seb and Steph. Yay!

*I've taken out the picture to try to fix a viewing problem, hope it works*

I get a kick out of you

So it's Monday morning. No it's not, it's Monday afternoon and I still haven't done anything. Great! GO ME! Oh how I love to sleep. But I have done some washing, I guess that's something. My parents are away if I haven't told you that yet, so I'm the chief cooker and cleaner at my place at the moment. My brother has no idea how to do these things you see. If I went away, he'd just live in dirty clothes and live off toasted cheese sandwhiches. But I love him!

We did our recording on Saturday. It went really well. It was long, but fun. But I was late to a party at my own house. Oops. I turned up an hour and a half after the first people did. HAHA! Oh well, they had fun without me anyway. Hmmm, not sure that's a good thing. Anyway, I won't get all melancholy (is that how you spell that?) on you. But yeah, we now have a 5 track demo cd! YAY! There is still some post production mixing to be done, but we layed all the tracks down which was so exciting! Ingrid played her guitar stuff, then I sang on top of that, which was weird coz I had headphones on and sang to what Ingi had just played, but everyone else in the room could hear only me singing with no music. It was a little unnerving. I felt highly conspicuous! But it's exciting to think that we almost have a really good demo cd. We can start sending it out to venues and hopefully score some gigs out of them. We're looking to get maybe 2 nights a week at a regular venue. I just can't wait!

So if you were at my house on Saturday night, thanks for coming, I had an awesome time, and if you weren't there, I think we're doing it all over again this Saturday, so feel free to come around and crash my place. If you know where I live that is! No stalkers allowed. My dog will eat you (if you've seen my dog you'll know what I mean...)!

I went to a 21st last night. It's been a little while since I've been to any of those. It was my friend Alison's younger sister. It was a 60's dress up night, and some people went all out! Her boyfriend went as Austin Powers! What a cack! Mostly it was just little 60's dresses and very short skirts and very high hair. I went as a real woodstock hippy. How fun! That was in 1969 right? Anyway, I had this giant, shiny, gaudy peace sign necklace I made myself and everything!

Peace out my tree hugging friends!

Play it again Sam

Ok, I'm attempting to do a picture thing again, someone told me how to get it to work (thanks Bowen). Therefore if this doesn't work, it's all his fault!

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

So today is the day when Ingi (aka Ingrid) and I finally record our demo cd! For those of you not in the know, Ingi and I are in an accoustic duo together (the name is a work in progress). She's on guitar and I'm on vocals. We did record a demo cd a couple of months ago, but we decided we weren't entirely happy with the way it turned out, so we're doing it again and today is the day! It's really quite exciting! We;re hoping to get into the industry as mainly a cover band to start off with. We are putting one original song we wrote on the cd, but mostly covers. We would love to score a couple of pubs gigs a week as some extra pocket money. But really, I just want to do it coz it's what I've always wanted to do. I'd love to be a singer and get paid for it! It's seriously like a dream come true! Well it will be when we finally have this cd and we can send it out to venues and actually get some jobs!

Ok, so I'm trying to figure out how to post a picture, so bear with me. I took this photo and I thought it turned out really cool looking, so here it is, I hope!


Ok, so apparently I can't get it to work, it's just a link, can anyone who knows what they're doing see what I'm doing wrong?]

Anyway, last night I had this dream that I wrote this fully awesome song. It was amazing! I wrote it on the piano, then when I woke up, I couldn't remember it! I hate that! I want to remember it! Anyone know of any good dream theraptists who could take me back to it?

Does anyone know if there is any way to check the ammount of hits I get on this thing? I suppose it'd be nice to see how many people actually check this thing out. And if you don't leave a post I have no idea you've been here! :( Hmm, I wonder. Ok, my brain hurts when I think of things too technological that I don't understand, like how to get a counter on my site, if it's even possible.

So I updated my profile. I have a photo now. How cool is my photo? Luke (my little brother [he hates it so much when I call him my LITTLE brother!]) took it. Yay for Luke and his new digital camera! I wonder if he'll notice if I steal it...

It's a wrap people!

Well today was the last day of shooting of the 'fair scene' for Charlotte's Web, so my film carrer has come to and end. Yeah I can't see myself being a perpetual extra. Director's hate extras. Extras really are idiots. Here is the typical thought of an extra (not me though): "Oh, I know! I'll just ignore everything the assistant directors are telling me, and always walk in front of the camera". No wonder it takes so long to shoot scenes! I'm not entirely sure they grasp the concept that it's about the actors, not the extras! YOU'RE NOT IMPORTANT!!!! Was a bit sad thinking I won't see any of my new friends again though. This girl spent the whole 2 and a half weeks claiming she knew me from somewhere (which was slightly creepy), and today we figured out she was in my class when I was in grade 6 and she was in grade 5 for the second half of the year. That girl has an incredible memory! That was 12 years ago!

I hate being sick. I managed to pick up a cold from my wonderful caring sharing brother. Who wants it? I'm over it. I'm actually auctioning it off on ebay if anyone wants to check it out. I'm sure someone will buy a cold that was contracted during the hollywood blockbuster that is Charlotte's Web!

My parents are away at the moment, which is kinda cool (having some more space), but kinda sucky, coz now I have to cook and clean. Doh! I need to teach my brother how to cook. Anyone want to volunteer to move into my house for 3 weeks and cook and clean for me? I'll pay you with the greatest gift I can give....my friendship! Anyone? *crickets chirp*

Numero Uno

Well here it is. My very first blog. First blogs seem to be quite cliche. Like my first two sentences. I'm not off to a very good start now am I? Anywho... I figured I'd jump on the blog bandwagon and use this as a way to communicate with my legions of fans. Ok, so my mum will probably be the only one who reads this. But maybe someone will stumble upon this blog one day and see deep into the recesses of my mind and be very afraid and need years of councilling to recover. In case you can't tell, I'm quite sleep deprived and suffering from a nasty cold. My brain isn't really functioning very well.

I've been working as an extra on the new 'Charlotte's Web' film being shot in Victoria at the moment. It's a two week stint of long hours and lots of popcorn and fairy floss. And when I say long hours, I mean long hours. Most days are 12 hour days from 5:30am - 5:30pm. Who gets up at 4:30am? Me apparently. Like I said, my brain isn't functioning. So look out for my elbow and my back coming soon to a cinema near you!

Well if you're still reading I'm glad you're still here. I'll keep updating, but for now, tschuess!
