I just finnished minding han, and she was so good today not a growl or groan, she was happy as larry and boy is larry happy today.
I did have to spend most ofd the afternoon getting jumped on or sitting on hannah but it was good fun, she pointed to herself and called herself robert and found it very funny so i started calling her robert and every time i did she would burst out laughing…she’s a funny chap.

my blog seems to be fixed it posted straight away then…..wahooooooo
that reminds me i havent linked to my coke thing for a while
last night at free for all there was only 4 of us, but it was fun, there was a lot of beat last night, with buckets and drums and glasses and stuff i really enjoyed it, It was a bit stragne going bymyself but i coped just fine.
I just watched a bit of the ulladulla video the mix is pretty good but the sound is terrible,tom has a screen shot from the video on his blog you can see what it looked like if you want!
I’m gonigto mind han this afternoon, i havent looked after hannah in ages it will be fun.
i should do some more statistics today shouldnt I ???????
Last night Ryan and I went to the movise beffroe we went we flipped a coint to decide which film we would see, heads was anger managment and tails was how to lose a guy in 10 days, the coin came up heads so off to nager managment we went as we where walking up the stairs after buying our tickets ryan was begining to doubt our film choice so he asked susan if we could go into a film that wasnt printed on our ticket, she said yes so we went into how to lose a guy instead. It started off kind og quirky the odd chuckle here and there but towards the end it turned into this vommit mania, soft focus, badly written, sloppy piece of second rate film. It was appauling ryan made the call that it was worse than sleepless in seatle!
the moral to this story is never go against the coins descision
stupid blog is playing up again
i would say that at least 3 hours a week is spent on trains so in the past 3 years that would be 468 hours all up whic is equal to 19.5 straight days which is 2% of the last 3 years which means i have now accounted for 45% of the last 3 years of my life.
this is going to be a nice looking pie graph!
probably 60 mins per day spent in the bathroom including showers and pissing and brushing teeth and rodding so that is 1,095 hours over 3 years which is equal to 45.625 days which is 4% of the past 3 years so we are now up to 49% filled.
this one is a bit sad but probably 30 mins spent each week in Mc Donalds which is 78 hours equal to 3.25 straight days which is 0.2% which is nothing so we wont bother mentioning it!
how cool are stats, anyway i have more stats to come i am going to try and account for 100% of the last 3 years, but first i have to talk about tonight. Myself ryan and David wentn to thornleigh Baptist church, it was a cool building well i liked it. The sermon was long and boring and the preacher dude would repeat every sentence twice so the sermon was at least twice as long asit could have been. They has some announcments and a lady got up and said that they where having a womens dinner and that they needed people to et up chairs and be waitors and stuff, ryan nudged me an asked if i wanted to help i said no, but ryanb has this persuasive minipulative skill of making one feel guilty and prrssuring them into saying yes so after the service we signed up to help set up chairs in a church we had never been before for a women we had never met before for a womens dinner…..bloody hell.
ryan isnt really minipulative but i do feel bad saying no to things when he is so stronlgy for the thing…….I still dont really want to help set up chairs at some womens dinner, i’m not planning on ever going back to that church except to set up chairs…..oh the pains of being nice.
i love ryan hes the dude, really i do, hes just tooo bloody nice to people who want asistance.
Its statistics time!
well i have to say that i am addicted to isketch and as of yet there is no isketch anti-adiction program so i cant see myself giving it up any time in the near future, just yesterday david enlightened me to the fact that isketch has statistics, so naturally i had a look at my stats,
and after looking at them i got into a bit of a stats mode i think my 3 months at anglicare has made me appreciate stats and data much more…keith would be ever so proud! anyway here are som disturbing stats i have dug up on myself.
159 hours spent playing isketch in aproximately 4-5 months whichis equivilant to 6.625 straight days
132 hours 53 mins and 10 secs spent talking on my mobile phone in 19 months, which is equivilant to aproximately 5.4 straight days
102 video / dvd hires from video ezy in almost 3 years, if the average film length is 90 mins that adds up to 153 hours of film watching. BUT tom has hired 127 videos / dvds making his viewing hours at 190 hours 30 mins, and seeing as we live together and he watches what i hire and i watch what he hires that is a total of 343.5 hours.
343.5 hours is equivilant to 14.3125 straight days.
so adding it all together in the past 3 years i have used up 26.3375 days of my life on a phone an internet game and films…….
seeing as i have watched many other dvd’s and videos not to mentrion films at the cinema, and spent countless hours on the internet and many hours on the home phone i would have a stab in the dark and say that in the last 3 years i have used up about 50 days in the past 3 years on the above things.
50 days is equal to 5% of the past 3 years which means 5% of my life in the last 3 years has been spent on the above things
and if on average i had 9 hours sleep per night that would equal 9,855 hours spent sleeping in the last 3 years which is equal to 37% of 3 years which means 37% of the last 3 years i have spent sleeping plus the 5% of videos, isketch and mobile phone that is now its time for the big one.
i have just accounted for 42% of the entire past 3 years of my life, what was i doing for the other 58% you may ask well i will save those stats for another day my frineds…..
this has probably been my best blog post ever and definatly my most disturbing!
Last night i went to jo’s house for dinner, with tom,ryan and roger, i had never met roger before hes from st johns and was a friendly chap. Jo’s house was cool, i couldnt live in it myself but it was cool house to visit, it was way to girly there where candles everywhere! and every room had pictures out of new internationalist magazines and calenders, you know the ones and there was material hanging from walls and in front of doors and even from the ceiling! jo cooked up some sweet and sour tofu it tasted good, i liked it.
i had 2 glasses of port and slept like a baby until 12:30 today.
its time for some links
well chris, jem, ryan and I went to free for all tonight, Chris and i where the opeing enseinble and we where called ‘the casio boys’
\i have to say that we where so so so bad, i couldnt belive how badle we played together tonight, it was horrible and i think everyone listening felt the same, it was quite upsetting casue normally we sound pretty good together but this was terrible, i think it had something to do with us trying to keep up this act that we where brittish and we where a britt rock band, it just didnt work at all, we played for a bout 45 mins and i reckon maybe 5 good minuites came out of it, it was quite depressing and it put a bit of a dampner on the rest of my evening, i felt like i had let everyone down, i hadnt it just felt that way.
Later in the eveing when it was the actuall free for all when chris and my names got called out we played mch better and when i played with other people it sounded good, it was just the hype that we had built up around ourselves crashed and burned!
I sang for the first time ever in public tonight aswell just to make my night even more tense, it was very scary i dont know why i did it i just sort of started singing, and it just so happened to be hirs who got called out with me so he played piano and i sung……it was a strange feeling and i was listening to my voice thinking it sounded so bad but i found the strength to keep going and once it was finnishes i was very proud of myslef, ryan thinks i should get voice training, i was thinking about it in the car on the way home that i would love to be able to sing.
so the night started off really bad but i left on a bit of a rush……
i saw johnny english yesterday…it had some funny bits but not a great film
lets talk about ulladulla!
on friday arvo tom thought 4pmwasa good time to leave so we packed our stuff and ended geting away at 4:04 which is amazing, we would have ben on time but you know how women can talk and talk and talk, well thats what they did and we couldnt move the car until they stopped talking ang got out of the way……..
first we picked up david from his house then we went to toms church in belrose and dropped off a video to the minister then we went to pittwater uniting church to pick up james, as we drove up the driveway we where all in shock at the size and scale of this place this wasone hell of a church building, and the yough hall looked like an airoplane hanger, all set in a nice bush setting, we got past all that to james’s house which looked like a display home from castle hill that the builders had put on a truck and dumped it in pittwater by accident, no offence james it just looked a bit odd.
after pittwater our next stop was austenmer i dohnt know how to spell it doesnt mattter, here we picked up a camera from toms cousins house, then it was maccas time where we sat and tried to solve the worlds problems like “whats the diference between a setee and a couch”
We arrived in ulladulla about 10pm i think, ulladulla james had a cool house, he had a little flatbeside the house and that where we stayed, there where four beds on the floor all neatly made with a towel folded on each one, it was very welcoming, we sat around telling poo storys til the wee hours of the morning.
we all woke up pretty early and you could tell that we where trying to get back to sleep but it was very hard, so eventually we all had our showers with 20min breaks inbetwen so the water could heat up again, then we had breakfast and headed off to the churchto set up for the concert.
david and james had to make a cord and buy some plugs and tom and i wired everything up and tested things and ran cables, during the setting up my tv blew up, but luckily we where able to aquire another.
when it started getting dark we put colour bars up onm the screens so it looked like we where tesint something and we looked professional, they looked good up on the big screen.
During the concert we had a few minor glitches but nothing dramatic and all worked out fine in the end, tom and dan where doing hand held stuff on the stage and got some really good shots and james had my camera which gave out far better picture quality than the other cameras so it didnt matter what sort of shots james got they just looked awsome on the big screen, and poor old david ahd the VHS-C camera which was grainey and washed out, we still used his camera a lot, it was one didgy looking scafolding tower that david was standing on, infact it ripped his pants earlier in the day and he just dissapeared he then reappeared about 10mins later with a new pair of pants he bought from a local shop…..hes a funny chap.
It was a lot of fun mixing and talking on coms, little dan kept sayin stuff on coms like “see those guys at the front dancing, they are real loosers” then after a little bit of siulence he would then say “i’mnot being mean they really are loosers” it was very funny.
the concert ended and we packed up our gear and loaded it intothe hannah van, then we helpedpack up everythibng else, we where all extremely tired by the end of it all.
we left ulladulla and began our trek home, the first part of the journey following a jeep who refused to let people overtake him, he woulddrive slow when there was only one lane then when an overtaking lane was present he would speed up and if people tried to overtake him he woulc change lanes and cut in front of them…he was an absolute dog.
we had some donuts and tried to go to sizzler but the line was to long so it was off the maccas, got home had a sleep went to church with tom came home went to bed.
that was ulladulla
