Current State Of Mind: tiredtired

Well this is my last nite in my flat before I move to Geelong...Im off to stay there tomorrow nite after finishing up some packing tomorrow then head up on sunday with a truck to do the move. Have to say Im really looking forward to getting out of here, particularly now I have the dispute with the landlord going on. Im a little worried about the bond refund and if they decide to screw me they better watch the fuck out. Im not in the mood to be fucked around again. (pardon the expletives but Ive had my fill of shitty real estate agents and now a useless and tightass landlord who wont even spend $5 on a bluddy washer for the toilet...arghhh).

The Evil Beast came up and stayed last nite and we headed out for dinner, like we did the first time he stayed with me since we got together...some good memories there and a bit of a milestone for him. Im looking forward to being closer to him and not solely rely on weekends to spend time, that being said we've done well over the last 7 months....just this way we can do more during the week and I can head up to Melbourne for a change to do a few things on the weekend and see some people Ive been neglecting LOL

Packing has been horrendus but Ive culled shit and gotten rid of alot of stuff also (including tonnes of clothes and shoes!)..its kinda a cleansing exercise. That and since Ill be sharing I dont have alot of room for things!

That being said have ended up with some new gadgets...since I dont have a landline I needed to upgrade my phone contract so thanks to Optus (and Strathfield) I now have a new Nokia 6300 for nix...not into flashy gadget phones anymore and this stainless steel version does all I need.. Im also loving the mobile wireless broadband - talk about blistering downloads! So far Ive had line connections up to 3.121mbps...woohoo...whether that will last in Geelong remains to be seen hehehe Since my share house doesnt have landline both these options should see me through for awhile plus I also scored a free bluetooth headset and a new Ipod 80gig classic for nix...not a bad 1/2 hour to spend in store for.
Ive been running the macbook through the Sony 26inch LCD tv and have to say Im pleased with the quality...itll work well in my bedroom for surfing and watching Grand designs that is recorded weekly on the dvd recorder hehehe
Where would we be without gadgets?!

Hmmm that is all for now...sleep...pack...sleep....move....clean...

Current State Of Mind: Bouncy
Current Tunes: Gordon Ramsay - Kitchen Nightmares
Well its official - Im on the move.
Ive found a great place to live in the posh suburb of Newtown amongst Geelongs elite. Thats right Im moving to Geelong in 3 weeks!

Decided since I couldnt find something I liked I would share and I was lucky to find Kate (well Kate found me), a 28 y/o woman who owns a beautiful 3 bedroom house looking to rent one of those rooms. I get my own living room as it had two living spaces and it'll halve my rent effectively.
Plus Im only a 20 min walk to the other halves house, the city centre and beach which is handy and the train station would be no more than 15 mins or a 5 minute drive, brilliant!

As much as Ive loved my 7 years in melbourne Im really looking forward to some quiet country-style living, it reminds me of home but only 20x better...

This weekend marks the 6 month anniversary of the Beast and I getting together and we decided to mark the occasion by doing something out of the ordinary. We booked a suite at Kryal castle (www.kryalcastle.com.au) complete with 4 poster bed and corner spa bath...along with the bottle of Seppelt 2002 vintage champagne I have from the trip to the Grampians at Easter and a surprise dinner in Ballarat will make for a fun nite over Anzac weekend.

A couple of bumpy patches have seen things progress well between the Beast and I, nobody said it would be easy but I wouldnt give up any of the last 6 months for anything. This man really gets me and we seem to fit well.
We are planning a trip to NZ later in the year and Ill be dropping by some relatives to surprise them as he has done with me over here. Itll be an interesting trip.
Being in Geelong will also help with freeing up some weekend time and hopefully the chance to get back out and catch up with some friends I havent had time to see of late since my weekends have been tied up.

Ive been out 4 times in the last 6 months on the scene and can honestly say I havent missed it, in fact I look at some of those on it in a different light, some not such a good way either but then thats all part of my learning experience in life.

Incidently I discovered 3 weeks ago that the English bastad is now working in a furniture store less than 100 metres from my new place of work. How you ask? By nearly bowling him over while shopping there, if only I had....ughh.

Work is mad ass busy and finally there may be some new roles on the horizon...but Im not getting too excited just yet. Watch this space...

I think thats it.

Current State Of Mind: hornyEvil Beastish
Current Tunes: Peter Murphy - All Aboard for Funtimes
I had no idea its been 4 months since I last posted - what can I say but Ive been too busy!
Met a wonderful man whom Ive been seeing for quite awhile now and things couldnt be better.
It happened unexpectedly, that is to say he was a friend and things just bounced from there, completely blindsiding me one nite we were out!
Hes more non-scene than scene and refreshingly doesnt believe that because he's gay that should define who he is or how he acts.
Hes mature, intelligent yet humble, has a passion for red wine (as I do thanks to the trip to Italy), believes in getting out and experiencing things more than sitting home in front of a tv, has more straight friends than Gay, is the complete opposite of me and is tactile to the max as well as having no problem expressing this in public.
All his friends and immediate family have embraced me as if they have known me for years, and that is a testament to the person he is and what they think of him which speaks volumes to me.
A brief (and strained) trip back to NZ for 9 days saw me arrive home before Xmas to spend 10 days from Xmas Eve with him.
We had a Xmas Eve party at his house with 12 of his closest friends and then spent Xmas having a Champagne breakfast/lunch with his parents which was fantastic.
Xmas nite was on our own as his housemates were off doing the family thing for a few days.
Day after boxing day we spent a nite in Dunolly with a school friend of his (and his partner) in what could only be described as a boutique hotel but something that looked like it was recently out of Home & Garden.
Then it was off to Daylesford to spend 3 great nites in a house one of his friends had lent us in the sweltering heat and see in the New Year with a close friend couple of his. BBQ, daylesford lake swim and many champagne bottles later we saw in the new year.
08 has continued well and now planning for trips in March has started.
I dont get alot of time at the moment as most of my weekends are spent in Geelong with him with the occasional one up here and work is keeping me pretty occupied during the week.
It has taken me pretty much out of the scene which I havent really missed, or I guess more the bullshit and meat market. I dont get to see as many people as I want to now and must make more time to catch up with a couple of people who I miss seeing.
Things will be interesting when I look to moving to Geelong in the next 3 months as well but I have to say I really love it down there by the beach. Everything is within walking distance and houses to rent are quite cheap...it will be a complete lifestyle change. Im not even phased by the 45 minute train journey each way to continue working in Melbourne.
After the last relationship I had (which brought me to Australia) I can honestly say I feel like Im in an adult relationship, I fully trust the person Im with and "THIS" is what its meant to be/feel like...its too early for love, but it certainly feels right.

Oh and yes hes a redhead and I love it!

Ok so I fobbed off this course but Im actually surprised that the content has taught me alot over the last 2 days.
Although its semi designed for 'business purposes' and teaches you how to be more of an effective manager its actually more designed at self examining yourself and bettering your own personal effectiveness.
Its made me confront a few issues and somewhat slapped me in the face to make me look at situations alot
differently and also how I react to these situations.
I THINK with some work it will certainly help me in a few areas, and if I only get one thing out of the course it will be invaluable. Some of the concepts are a little meh but there are some really interesting ones regarding proactivity.
Perhaps these skills will be invaluable in dealing with a couple of certain people lol

Also discovered in my Inbox tonight I won a competition for a double movie pass from Qantas to see "Surfs Up" which I doubt I wouldve gone to see at the movies, but since its free it always makes it more worthwhile :)
(cant even remembered what Id done to win it lol)

Current Tunes: Bananarama - Feel For You
Im still a bit of a fan of the eighties and its music and altho I didnt like them that much then thought I would download Bananarama's new release...I have to say Im kinda impressed. It seems to be the thing to release dancey albums at the moment since Madonna started it and this is no exception. But I will almost go to say I like alot of the tracks on this more than Madonnas Confessions album. Way to go girls...

So I went to update my video iPod (which has been sitting in my bedside drawers) for the last 4 months only to notice that the lcd screen has a big shitty crack right through the middle of the screen - grrrrrrr.
Its hardly been used and Ive not dropped it or anything, but apparently this is not uncommon...bluddy Apple. And what do you know the warranty only expired last month.
Ive been quoted $219 to replace it which is crap cos its almost cheaper to buy a new one. Scoured ebay and found a replacement with the tools to do it for $30...this will be interesting.

Gym is going well, am now at 24kgs lost and the personal training sessions (as much as they kill the living daylights out of me) seem to be helping the muscles and toning...Im beginning to like how I look now AND Its great to be able to buy new, smaller clothes. Im the smallest Ive been in around 9 years :)

On that, Im loving ebay as well....I got some Diesel shoes from the US for $34USD with the current exchange rate hit me for around $43AUD...a huge saving on the usual $200AUD odd price tag...ebay will be my new obsession LOL

Current State Of Mind: bouncybouncy
on an unrelated foreign topic...
Im loving my new phone - the Nokia 6110. I went off Nokia for awhile but this has won me over.
The 3G net browsing is fast...the sound quality thru the 3D speakers is great AND loud. Screen is clear and navigation around the applications are amazing and the symbian operating system is really quick. The built in GPS navigation (with voice prompting which you DONT need to purchase separately) is fan-bluddy tastic...Id never thought being told by a phone where to go would be so much fun. Now when i get off my ass and get a car in a couple of months, Ill never need my Melways again...loving it.

Current Tunes: Freemasons - Rain Down Love
I was chatting with one of my staff about the italy trip and in particular the consumption of red wine over there and how it tasted different.
To my surprise on friday she had placed two bottles of italian wine (both from the town of Montalpuciano where we had visited) for me that apparently Dan Murphy's stocks.

I popped open the bottle of Abruzzo on friday nite and discovered it was the best Ive had since leaving italy last year...polishing off the bottle pretty quickly... that then put me in the mood to go out lol

Didnt really enjoy my nite out altho I ran into quite a few people I hadnt seen in awhile which was good.
Was only out a few hours and lasted about an hour 1/2 at the Squeal which altho there was a line to get in was not as busy inside as I expected it to be.

Yesterday was a pretty quiet one, and I had an invitation to go out but ended up falling asleep on the couch...mustve needed the rest.

Today I decided I wasnt gona stay inside...I headed into the city, did some shopping at the Myer sale, had lunch at QV and picked up some more Italian red from Dan Murphys then went and checked out the Karin Catt's "Famous" portraits exhibition at the State Library which was really good.
I want to see the Guggenheim exhibit at NGV also but the Englishman also wanted to...I think maybe I should just make plans for my own tour...

I was tempted to call in and see the Englishman but figured that would come close to stalking so decided against it.

Have a fitness assessment with the Personal trainer on wednesday but not looking forward to it...Ive been a little bad this weekend...I need some "leisure" activities to burn it off *sigh*

Crashed

Well I was moving at the speed of sound.
Head-spinning, couldn't find my way around, and
Didn't know that I was going down.
Yeah, yeah.
Where I've been, well it's all a blur.
What I was looking for, I'm not sure.
Too late and didn't see it coming.
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could've been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
Then I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can't walk away.

Somehow, I couldn't stop myself.
I just wanted to know how it felt.
Too strong, I couldn't hold on.
Yeah, yeah.
Now I'm just tryin' to make some sense
Out of how and why this happened.
Where we're headed, there's just no knowing.
Yeah, yeah.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could've been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
Then I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can't walk away.

From your face, your eyes
They're burned into me.
You saved me, you gave me
Just what I need.
Oh, just what I need.

And then I crashed into you,
And I went up in flames.
Could've been the death of me,
But then you breathed your breath in me.
Then I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can't walk away.

And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
And then I crashed into you,
Then I crashed into you,
Like a runaway train.
You will consume me,
But I can't walk away
