  • I went to pick up a gift voucher for the Gal Pal. She's in hospital for a few weeks and so this is work's collective gift to her. The chain I wanted to get the voucher from was closed when I went shopping on Thursday night. I thought it had shut down for renovations. So today I went to a different shopping centre to pick it up.
    Apparently the store at Parra shits at 5pm. Even on Thursdays (our late night shopping thing). Who knew! But I got my voucher.
  • I got new pillows. Since the Biotch is here, he's using some of my pillows. And I'm not used to having three pillows. I tend to pad them all around me. Craving bed contact much? So I picked up two good ones. They were normally $23 each, but were on sale. And I had my roomies discount card, so instead of paying $46, I paid $30. And they're soo good.
  • I saw Bakery Chick. I've known this girl pretty much since I moved to Sydney. But its only been through being a regular customer. I thought she had left her job, because I never saw her anymore, on the few occasions I went to that centre. But she was there today so I dropped in to say hi. She said she saw me at Parra a week or so ago, but she didn't think I'd recognise her out of her uniform. So we swapped numbers.
  • I got the job interview. I thought I had been rejected because I hadn't heard back. But I found a letter in my mailbox (seriously, whats the point of even having those nowdays?) and they've scheduled me in for an interview.
  • I cleaned. Did laundry and vacuumed the floor and scrubbed the shower. I love the smell of a clean house.
  • I had a dance social. I swear 8 minutes of salsa is better than 20 minutes on a treadmill. And so much more fun. But leaving them is always so disappointing. I am always very awake, and I want to go do something, even if its just have a quiet cup of cocoa with a friend. But the Biotch is out with his ex, and the roomie is off at a partay, so I blog instead. Aren't you all lucky.
  • I did my 400th post. You're reading it now.

Congratulations on obtaining the second(?) job interview, Phish, and on your 400th post. Have a fun and blessed weekend.

Josh said...

You got to love a good pillow. You are very generous sharing them with the Biotch.

So what's this, dancing and you didn't invite me? I am always up for a cup of cocoa or coffee after a hard night throwing shapes. Next time eh?

oestrebunny said...

woo for the job interview, and also for getting bakery chicks number.

i have a friend like that who i met totally randomly and it took us years to swap numbers. she's turning into one of my closer friends now though.

Steph said...

g'work on 400 posts! i don't think the seal and i will ever make it that far... too fickle.

job interview - nice! well, if theres one thing i learned from my job hunting it was to tell them that you're looking for a job with lots of opportunity to progress within the company - they love hearing that you want to be there for 548449023948268 years working your arse off for them! and no, i wasn't applying for jobs at mcdonalds. good luck!

400 posts- that's a lot.

Not long to 500.
May you carry on till 1,000.

How is life with Biotch?
And when are we going to see 'Life with Phish'?

The T-Dude said...

Happy 400! Does it feel like that many?

And break a leg with the interview, I'm sending good karma from the states for you.

Miss Smack said...

Can you swap numbers with other salsa dancers and go for an after-dance drink?

honkeie2 said...

400, makes me wonder how many I have. I think I will go look now. 5 minutes of sex is equal to about 45 minutes on a treadmill. I am thinking about opening a sex gym. Where women pay me to sex-ercise them skinny. what do you think?

Josh said...

Yay, congrats on 400 posts! Sort of coincidental that we hit that mark at about the same time. I'd offer to race you to 500 but I don't think that's a good idea.

I agree with the salsa assessment, if you add the words "chips and" in front of "salsa".

Phish...Yay on the job interview and the big 400.

I agree with you on regular mail. It's so on it's way out.

You are blogging and I had to come in to work on a Sunday. Not that I was scheduled to work...seeing that I make my own schedule. It was important that I come in and supervise a few projects. micro-manage??? Um...No, just making sure they follow it all succeeds. Ha.

I love to dance and salsa is one of my favorites to do. Do you tap dance as well? I did a little of that while performing in high School. There's nothing like live performance.

later babes...

Congratulations on Post 400! Cheers,

Keshi said...

I love fresh pillows :)

**penis secret

that freaked me out girl LOL!


fingers said...

Congratulations on being able to sleep on a $23 pillow. Is it filled with discarded condoms or something...

phishez_rule said...

Pie - I will. Stay tuned.

Nick - Its not the second. This one is completely new!

Josh - absolutely.

Oestre - its funny how things like that happen.

Steph - Nah. We're supposted to be collecting from adsense by now.

Jenny - Its only when you get new pillows that you realise how crappily you've been sleeping.

Betty - and a helluva lot of crap.

Cazzie - I like walking, but I love dancing more. Its a substitute for having no sex.

Small Fry - I never thought I'd make it this far. Thanks for the good thoughts.

Ingsoc - when he gets motivated. (Read: never)

T - I'm here in lotus too!

Smack - After dancing I'd rather go for a good hard fuck. And I have gone for coffee with some of the more senior dancers afterwards.

Honk - I think you'd get all worn out.

Josh - I'm not a big fan of chips. It is crazy that we hit the big numbers together. How long have we known each other?

SZJ - I've never tap danced. It looks too hard.

Cynic - thanks

Keshi - haven't you heard about it yet? Its a hell of alot of fun.

Fingers - no. Its full of love and squishiness. Hmm. Now that I think about it, it sounds like you might be right.
