Feuding With The Family

Guru & I headed off to be in the audience for 'Bert's Family Feud' yesterday afternoon. Was lots of fun, and we even got a Bert mask each! Yay for Bert me! I won't rehash what we did, just see Guru's blog for the speil. I've decided I should be on tv more this year. I was on a few times last year. Maybe 3? Well, it'll be more this year! Watch out for me on Monday & Tuesdays Family Feud shows Australians! And as a side note, I have an incredibly sore back today and I can't move properly, I think it was the chairs yesterday. Ow. I'm going to wallow in self pity I think.

Time for even more photos!!!

A few of us went around to Anna & Rob's last weekend for Rob's 26th birthday. We just hung out and generally had fun. It was the first time some people had seem them since they got back from their honeymoon in South America a few days prior. So there was lots of looking at photos, handing out presents and general funness! Yes, that is a real word... This is Alex & I.

This one is Alison. Kathryn went around taking photos of everyone's eyes, and I like the way this one turned out! I wish I could raise one eyebrow, but I can't... Sniff sniff...

This is Emma and her boyfriend Anesti. Aren't they adorable? :)

I love this photo!!! This is Anna & Grant. As I was about to take the photo, Anna fell backwards (almost off the chair) and Grant's laughing and trying to catch her! I love it! So you get connections, Anna is married to Rob, and Grant is engaged to Kelly.

This is me kissing Kathryn. Awww! I love her!

And this one is Kathryn & her boyfriend Keith. Keith and Anesti (Emma's boyfriend) are best friends, so that's how we met Keith. Just so you know the connections.

This one is Rob (married to Anna) & Stas (Anna's cousin and Alex's boyfriend). Aren't they good looking boys? The hat Rob is wearing is one that we all got. They bought back about 10 of them, and we all got Llama hats! Aren't they awesome!!! I love mine! Mine is cream with some brown through it. It's so warm! I want it to get colder so I have an excuse to wear it!

It'd actually be great to get some feedback from you guys about my blogging. Are too many photos boring? I like photos, but if they are just annoying then please tell me. Or I can just post one or two at a time.

Love to you all! Mwah!

Grant's Shenanigans


As promised, here is a report on Grant's 25th which was a week and a half ago now. We went up to Olinda (in the dandenongs hills on the outskirts of Melbourne) to a restaurant for dinner. It was so pretty! But so far away... Anyway, this is Grant and Kelly who are getting married later on this year. These are the guys who asked me to sing at their wedding while they sign the register. How exciting! I'd tell you the song, but it's a secret! Shhh!

This one is the gorgeous Kathryn and her lovely boyfriend Keith. Aren't they adorable? That's right, everyone saw 'Awwww!' 1, 2, 3! "AWWWW!!!"

And now presenting to you: Lisa and her boyfriend Adrian. Don't they just look... um... well, they look something. Just kidding guys, you rock!

And now for the final installment in this issue's photo montage: Grant and "Alison" enjoying the cake. Oh yeah, so much cake... as you can tell, Grant was loving the cake! As he should, being the birthday boy and all!

March seems to be the season for birthdays. I've spent so much money on presents this month, but I also got lots of presents, seeing as I'm one of the thousand people who seem to have a March birthday. More photos of other things to come, but I haven't edited them yet.

I'm struggling to get the motivation to get back into study after 2 weeks off. Hoping that feeling won't last long.

On a lighter note, we won our first A grade game of volleyball tonight! WHOO!!! And half our team were missing. Perhaps they're holding us back and we should dump them! :P

We just got a brand new 20 inch iMac! So sweet!!! I have our eMac in my room now. All wireless, network, internet, everything. SWEET!!!

Photos Go Bye Bye

For some reason I can't upload photos onto my blog through Blogger anymore. Stupid Blogger! The page doesn't finish loading when I load them up. Oh well, you'll have to put up with me rambling on, rather than seeing wonderful pictures of what I'm rambling on about.

Anna & Rob decided to come back from South America early. They were due back tomorrow (Friday) but just turned up on my (ok, their) doorstep on Tuesday afternoon. They were supposed to stay in Lima for the last few days, but they didn't really like Lima (it was really smoggy), so they left early and didn't tell anyone they were coming back to the country! So I was the first one to see them as they rocked up unannounced. Wish I'd cleaned the house... I mean it wasn't dirty or anything, but my stuff was everywhere coz I was treating it like my place. So that was a lovely surprise! They surprised their parents that night and I sat through about 1000 photos (no exaggeration). They were all great, but wow, so many photos. I am so unbelievably jealous now, and I totally have the travel bug bad! I want to go overseas!!! NOW!!! Sigh... so anyway, we had people over at their place last night. I invited people around under a false pretense and surprised them all with Anna & Rob. Was lots of fun, but they crashed early because they were still kind of jet lagged.

Yesterday, Anna & Rob took me out to their favourite Vietnamese restaurant for lunch. It was so yummy!!! I put psycho hot chilli in my food. You can't even get this stuff in supermarkets it's so hot. Then I did the dumbest thing ever and touched my eye!!! I can't believe something can hurt that much! I thought I was going to have to get them to take me to the hospital it burned so badly! So much pain, so much burning...

Pa's funeral is tomorrow. Think it's going to be a sad day.

Catch Up

There is so much to catch up on! I haven't blogged properly for a while now coz I'm house sitting far away, but I'm hanging out at my parents' place this arvo, so time to get some blogging in! Prepare for a photo onslaught! This is from my birthday party last weekend. I had so much fun. There were about 40 people in a little 2 bedroom town house! Kinda squishy, but very fun! I really enjoyed the night as you can see! This is a group of us as I was cutting the cake.

I got so many exciting presents! Lots of jewelery, a japaese tea set, 'Buffy' stuff, 'Serenity' on dvd, Jane Austin's guide to dating (haha!), fondue set, shoes, money, a bag, lots of stuff really. This is Alex & I as I was cutting the cake! Is it not the most exciting cake in the universe?!!! Here's a better photo of the cake:

It's a turtle cake!!! I love turtles! The wonderful Ben made the cake, with some assistance from myself, but I didn't do much in thhe hlping department, but I did help taste is along the way! It's a white chocolate cake with rasberry and blackberry sauces throughout. It has a layer of custard in the middle and it has advokaat and white chocolate ganash on top as the icing, coloured green of course. How awesome is this cake?!!!

This is (from left to right) Wire, Dboy and Guru. Aren't they gorgeous men? :)

We need to balance out the gender balance of the photos now, so here are some girls! This is Simone (Left) and Jess (Right). Looking beautiful as always!

And here is Dboy and Chrystal (aka Mrs. Dboy). Don't they just look like the perect couple? I just want to squeeze their cheeks!

And to finish off my party photos, this is Ben & myself. I wonder if my cheek tasted any good?

Now to move on! Ben came over to my place on Wednesday and we shaved his beard all funkified like! Yes, I have a fantastic grasp of the English language! So he has a kind of tiger beard now. Isn't it funky? Then he decided it woudl be a good idea to go to the BMX track behind my house sitting house. SO he had a go for a while, then decided that I should have a go, which was fine for a while. I made my first 3 jumps fine! I'm not sure why I decided it was a good idea to do 1m jumps when I haven't been on a BMX track for like 10 years. So anyway, they were great, I got air and landed and it was great, but then the fourth jump was not so sucessful. I stacked the landing and scraped up half of my right shin. Owie! Cleaning the dirt out of it stung so much! Fun night...

For some reason blogger won't let me upload any more photos, so you can see the photos from Grant's 25th next time. That's all for now folks!

Pa just died. The funeral will be on Friday.

Getting Old...

I went to visit my Pa today. He's expected to die in the next few days, so that was probably the last time I'll see him. It's really hitting me how old and frail we all will become. But perhaps it's worse for some. Pa has cancer, he is now bleeding internally, and he has advanced Alzheimer's. I'm not even sure he knew who I was today. He may have, I'm not sure. He didn't really speak. That is the first time I have seen him where he couldn't really speak, and I'm not sure if he knew me. At least the other times he knew me, he just couldn't remember anything I was doing, where I lived, etc. But at least he knew me. What a horrible disease Alzheimer's is! I'm feeling rather sad about knowing that he could die any time. I've never seen him so frail. He was way too skinny, and his face was all sunken, and his skin was a weird yellow colour. I hate death. I've only had one other person close to me die, that was my other grandfather in 1999. I'm just feeling a bit sad.

Seriously. Birthdays rock.

Parties Galore!

Yay for me and extending my birthday as long as humanly possible! I had friends over on Monday night who decided to make it my pre-birthday celebration, which at midnight turned into my brithday celebration. Then on my actual birthday (Tuesday) I had birthday wishes from people at college, then saw my family, then my small group came over to my place and we had cake and I got sung to. Yay! Tonight I'm having a party with my work mates, then tomorrow night I'm having a party with everyone else. Oh yeah, so much birthday celbrating! I'm lovin' it!

Can I also say how much I am just loving being in a house with a beautiful piano! So much nicer than my electric one. Not that I don't adore mine, coz I do, but real pianos just feel classy or something. I'm playing the piano sooooooo much! I hope the neighbours don't end up hating me, given that they don't already! I've learnt a song called 'my foolish heart' by victor young. Oh how I love that song! It's my current favourite!

Fun On Walls

Well on Monday night we didn't play volleyball because we had a bye, so Ben (as seen on the right) & Alex (as seen below) came over and we had a bit of a hit of the Vball on the oval. Lots of fun! Then we decided to try and make it look like we were writing on the walls at Anna & Rob's so we could email them the photos and freak them out!

We wrote on glad wrap then stuck it to the wall and took photos. But it was pretty obvious that we were writing on glad wrap. I couldn't make it look like it was really written on the wall. Oh well, I'll email them a photo anyway. It'll be fun! Aren't we the mischeivious ones! Mwahahahahaha!

It's here!!!

It's my birthday! Whoo!!! I'm excited and I'm 24! The wonderful Ben (who is an awesome chef) cooked me French toast for breakfast this morning, I got some cards and pressies from people at college (you guys rock!), and a fondue set from Guru (my brother who rocks). It's going to be a good day, and it's only half over! My small group is coming to my place tonight too. I love birthdays!!! I can't wait for the cake to begin! Thanks for all the great birthday wishes so far! Love to you all!

*insert big kiss here*

It's my birthday tomorrow! WHOO!!!

I have had a busy weekend filled with dinners, a wedding, a house warming, study, church stuff and just generally not enough sleep. Had fun though. I have a sociology test soon, better go study. I love it though, it's my favourite subject! Been getting lots of exciting emails from Anna & Rob who are over in South American on their honeymoon. Sounds like they have having the most amazing time! I'm sooooo jealous! I want to travel! Stay safe y'all! Boom baby!

I'm smart!

Well how super intelligent am I?! Don't answer that... Anyway, I am house sitting as of yesterday for some friends of mine who have gone off to South America on their honeymoon! Anna & Rob got married almost 3 weeks ago and have just left to go overseas. I'm sooooo jealous! I posted some photos from their wedding for those of you who are confused as to who I'm on about. So anyway, tonight I thought to myself 'I'll make a fruit salad! How nice!' Now the knives we have at home (can't you see where this is going?) aren't all super new sharp coz we've had them for a while. The knives here however are super new sharp because they were a wedding present. So I delightfully sliced one of my fingers open tonight. Oh the pain! It was a nice deep cut too. It bled lots and lots for about an hour. So much blood! At least it's not bleeding anymore, but I might get a scar from it! Hmmm... I should be more careful when working with knives!

So anyway, I am house sitting. It's so nice! It's a long way away (Whittlesea for those of you familiar with Melbourne Geography), which is nice, but also annoying coz I have to drive a long way to get to places I would usually go to (eg. work). I adore my family (whom I live with), but I think I'm really going to appreciate just having a bit of time on my own and getting some space. Oh, and did I mention they have a lovely piano? It's awesome!!! :)
