I worry about my friends back home.

I worry about some of my friends.

Obsessive compulsive disorder. Net addicts. Physchological dependancy.

A mate of mine seems to log onto the net just so he can say goodnight to people. Ofcourse I could just be taking an extreme explaination of a perfectly ok situation - he (yes it's a he) could have been logged in for hours already. He probably had been. But I wonder if that really makes the situation any better.

Hampton Court Palace 16 Oct 2005


A couple of weekends ago Cindy, Belinda, Denzil & I visited Hampton Court Palace.
Being one the most popular historical royal palaces, we put our tourist-hats on and made it a day trip. There was a 2-for-1 deal going on so we only had to pay 6pounds each for entry fee (I don't think I would've gone if I had to pay 12 pounds which is about AU$30!).
The day was well spent walking through the palace and gardens eventhough we had some cloudy weather. Denzil has taken heaps of photos. We'll post some more up soon so watch this space!

Always wanting to be helpful...

A day in the life of Denzil:

Denzil: Let me do the washing...
Denzil: You thirsty? I'll get you a drink....
Denzil: I can see your cold... I'll get you a blanket...

I always like to be helpful and considerate of Lulu.

Rewind.. 5 minutes earlier....

Lulu: Do you remember what I got you for our first christmas ?
Denzil: ummm......
[DING]
Lulu: Remember what I got you for your 30th birthday?
Denzil: ummm....
[DING]
Lulu: Do you remember when we went to New Zealand?
Denzil: ummm...
[DING]

For those of us who are hearing impaired, the [DING] is the sound of Denzil rapidly loosing brownie points.

You Gotta Worry...

You gotta worry when a conversation with a mate goes something like this:

Chicken Hawk: im so depressed i want to go shopping
Chicken Hawk: and if i could eat
Chicken Hawk: id want some chocolate or ice cream
dwagn: hahahaa. spoken like a true woman!

perhaps.. hmmm.. i really don't know what else to say on that point.

How to make rubber.

Forget the rubber tree. I've discovered a new way to make rubber... but wait it gets better... it's eatable too!!

6:00am... its dark.. its cold.. and my alarm goes off.
6:15am... I muster the energy to get up.
6:17am... Rolled oats + protein suppliment + milk + microwave = breakfast
6:22am... Ding... 5mins in the microwave. I pull out my breakfast. There's a big white blob in it.
6:22,50am... Realisation. Enlightenment. Call it what you will. I realise the protein has solidified into a rubber white mass...
6:23am... that tastes like shit. But then again most protein supplements do.

weekend

We had lovely sunny weather over the weekend (suprising eh), but Denz and I spent half of it inside at home sick. Infact all day Saturday we stayed indoors.

Sunday I felt well enough to go out, so I met up with Cindy for some morning tea. We went to Covent Garden, one of my favourite areas in Central London. Its a maze of small cobbled stone streets with a variety cafes, boutique and high street shops, art and 2 very touristy markets.
If you go beyond the tourist part of it, it really is a nice area to hang out on a Sunday. After some really nice fresh mint and cinammin tea we got our hair cut and went for some shopping.

Denz met up with us after lunch and we wondered onto Chinatown for a chinese-grocery-stock-up! Cindy and I don't work in the city so when we visit Chinatown its an opportunity to get some fresh supplies for the week. We bought a variety of chinese vegies, some roast duck and roast pork and some chinese cakes & breads. Yum!
We also dropped by the Japan Centre as they have a basement supermarket and sushi kitchen where you can buy fresh (you can see all the little japanese ladies makng sushi packs in front of you) sushi packs for quite a good deal.
Channel 5 were having a movie marathon playing "Into the groove" with Madonna in it; "Dirty Dancing" and "Cocktail"! So of course I watched "Dirty Dancing" (again!) for a bit of a Patrick Swayze perve (Kathleen would've been proud of me). "Ghost" is on this Wed night...so i'm gonna have to watch that too! It was a great way to end the weekend.

Album update

Our album is finally updated with recent trips Boston, Ireland and NYC. Sorry for the delay- this was due to a slight "technical" failure (in other words Denz finally uploading them!).

The cravings..

Weird....

Maybe its because I'm sick with the flu, but today I've had weird cravings... for red meat just after I got into the office for work, and just now for hot popcorn with butter... That was even after the 4 (yes FOUR) bread rolls and yoghurt that Lu made for lunch. Thank god I still have a banana, and rice cakes to snack on!

If I was a girl, I would be wondering if I was having some weird hormonal shifts... perhaps I'm pregnant.

Stranger things have happened.
