Virtual Texas Hold em' is the bomb-diggity.

Mista and i, on our day off on wednesday, went to cashies (cash converters, a BIG ass pawn shop) just to waste time as my spare tyre was getting fixed (apparently, it takes 2-3 hours to fix a tyre these days, unlike the usual 20 min or so everywhere else).
Mista saw an old game that you plug into the tv and there is six wireless controllers. It was virtual world series poker.

so $20 bucks later and some free batteries, he is now the proud owner of a game that CHEATS!!! I SO WON THAT HAND!!! I HAD TWO PAIR!!! YOU ONLY HAD ONE!!! ARRRG! *throws controller at mista mattie again*

Anyway, a bottle of red wine and this game means hours of fun for all!

Its awesome! well and truly!

Anyway, I'm off to my first ever AFL grand final thingie! sure ive been to my parents ones when i HAD too go. but this is the first ever by choice!

Apparently there will be Guiness and chicken, (champagne for the girls, but fizzy drinks give me tummy ouches nowdays, so guinness it is.)

And then for the 6-7 hours of footy entertainment. I'm a bit mixed on the subject at the moment, but i have been proved wrong before. i thought i would absolutely be bored shitless with the world cup soccer, let alone having to stay up till two in the morning, but i got more into it than mattie, screaming at the tv, calling the umps, yelling at the dirty cheaters. (of them, there was many)

So we will see how it goes.

Anyhoo going now

Love you all

Under the Thumb?

Well if anyone reads this and you live in Tasmania and you just happened to be listening to Seafm (radio station) thismorning, you would have been subjected to the same verbal diarhea that i was.

It was about how men in tassie are under the thumb of their women. Naturally i dont give a shit about what they have to say, but this just went on and on and on. One would say, "why didn't you just turn it off?". And i can answer "damn it, i really wish i had."

There was one loser caller who got on there and stated "i doo's what i want when i want, and if she questions me i just say "well who's the man?""

Now i cant answer who the man is in that relationship, but i sure do know who the child is.

Women may get cranky, yes, we may even get demanding, but sometimes the only way to get through to a man is to speak to him how his mother used too. As much as it pains me to say, more often than not, they listen.

And why do we take this liberty? why do we get cranky? why do we think we know better? Studies have shown that a female reaches maturity years before a male of the same age, therefore more responsibility is placed on the female counterpart. Cooking is taught to us, cleaning, childminding. Then when it comes to teaching the men how to do it, why when you already have a female who can do it better? We have technically had years of experience over males.

That, and many years ago, the women stayed at home, did an average of 3 hours housework a day, looked after children ect. Nowdays, a woman has to work full time, (the same hours as a man) come home, find the time to do that 3 hours of housework (yup, supprisingly it didnt just dissappear) and if they have children, probably spend more time looking after it.

(not to say, there are a few men out there who can look after themselves, and who dont have to be nagged, who do their fair share and dont usually need to be nagged. i believe they were the ones described on seafm as "under the thumb". doesn't it make you mad? and on that note, there are a few females out there who wouldnt know how to care for themselves even if their lives depended on it, and unfortunatly, usually these people have small babies who's lives DO depend on them. It makes me want to cry.)

Now i totally believe in womens rights, but i believe that womens rights gave us the right to choose. We should be able to choose to work full time, choose to be a mother or choose to be a house wife (the three are just as important as eachother). But now, there is no choice. To survive now days, a man and woman have to work full time. I think it is very rare to see a family surviving on one AVERAGE income whilst the other does home duties (man or woman). There is no choice anymore really for most of us.

And they wonder why we arent having babies anymore. We can't choose too. We cant warrant it. And its a pity. And those who choose to battle it, my hat goes off to you, for you are braver than i am at this current moment in time.

Well, I'm glad i got MY OPINION off my chest.

you dont have to agree with me, you dont have to disagree with me, these are my views personally from my experience.

Whoops i totally went from one topic to another, at least they were related this time.

Anyhoo i should go,

Love you all, and hope you are all bright eyed and bushy tailed.

Me Tube? Thats unpossible...

I cant believe that there has been a huge development of the blogging variety, and I didn’t even know.

You tube…

You all know it, I know where you have been sneaking off too late at night, whilst I am asleep, sneaking out to your hussy, coming back smelling of cheap youtube perfume, virtual lipstick on your collar!

Well, what If you are like me, and have only just grasped the highly technical version of written blogging? Huh?

What if you aren’t pretty enough for visual broadcasting? At least the radio has you in the car… what do I have?

Who would have thunk that the lazymans way of blogging would have caught on so quickly? I can now, thanks to the bizarre amount of youtube broadcasts that are underage teens wearing absolutely nothing demonstrating poses that they think are original, but honey, we’s been dooin that one for years, come back to me when you can pull off that pose in an airoplane bathroom without getting caught/cramps.

I wont take away from the few original, actually interesting mini tv series youtube broadcasts. They are cool, hats off to you guys

But can you at least type up a transcript of what is said so that I can actually view this stuff and get the gist of it whilst pretending to do work? Its a lot harder to hide audio and visual then it is to hide text…. Lemme tell you!

But enough about that, I want to know something that has been bugging me for ages.

If the toilets in the southern hemisphere drain one way, and the others in the northern hemisphere the other way…. What way does it drain in countries right on the equator?

Also, just for news at hand in my life, Landlord lady invaded my privacy, something you should never ever do… especially to good old obsessive compulsive me. She even used our power and took the liberty of opening a window, not to mention going into my bedroom without prior permission to even enter my house.

So you guessed it, I’m moving again.

I was so mad that Mattie and I had to leave the house, to which 2 km down the road, the clutch gives out, so we wait for RACT and a tow for two hours. Then to find out its going to be like $600 smakeroo’s to fix it!


Well I had better get back to work, its getting pretty hard to pretend im doing work when im this worked up

(pun not intended)

Love you All, especially Mista Mattie

I put in the picture cause i thought it was funny, no relevance to anything at all, just in case you were confused.

I Love you, Mattieus Q.

I hope this tell's you (and the world) how much I really do love you... I even searched the net for a picture that would say 1000's words, to just let you know.

I thought you might relate to this picture a bit more, it was either that or a picture of candy hearts, i thought you might like that one too.

Also, just while I'm here,

And i must mean it, cause i spelt "you" correctly, and no crappy smilie faces!!!!
Anyway, that is all i have to say today, exept that congrats to everyone who read my post about Hamster, and used their collective will to help him heal, because last i read he had gone from critical to stable condition. Woot!
Love for all, but expecially Mattie.

A hushed silence for a Hurt Hamster

You could have knocked me over with a feather (made easier today by the gale force winds that are killing me, not to meantion my hair) when I discovered that Richard "Hamster" Hammond had been critically injured in a high speed test run of a jet powered car.

He was averaging about 450 kph and was racing the car down a runway at an unused Royal Air Force air field near York city in northern England and it overturned.
Last I heard they had rushed him in an air ambulance to a hospital in Leeds.

Now most of you may not know this guy, some may know him from the TV show "Braniac" as the host, others know him from the show "Top gear", which he also hosts with some other guys (note my attention to detail people)

Now as you know, I am not a big one for cars, i drive a red one, and that is the extent of my knowledge, but since meeting mattieus Q. he and his friend affectionately know as "Gavio Hawques" (dont ask) love the top gear show, and being the nice girlfriend that i am, sat down to watch some with them.

And now for the element of surprise.... I really liked it. It was funny as! they are a crack up, the one i watched was them test running a jeep playing fire tag with an army tank....

And they had a PINK CAR!!! oh my god i want that car! Hamster was test driving it, pulled over and refused to drive it, but i dont care! it was adorable!

And another one i watched, they tried to turn a family wagon thing, into a convertible, by themselves, and drive it down the highway to see if it would tear up.

God it makes me laugh till i almost pee, and mattie till he actually pee's (not really...)

So with all this sadness this past weeks, I thought we could all take a moment to wish him the best and hope he heals up, possibly send some flowers, a card maybe.

I dont want to have to do another memorial post, please, so with the collective will of everyone who reads my post, we can help him survive, glass half full and all that.

Till next time

Love you all

Peter Brock, the Legend will Live on

I really wish i never had to post a memorial to one Great Australian, let alone two. And all in the same week.

Peter Brock is, and was a Legend. A great Idol to most of my friends, especially my mattie.

Mattie, in fact, made me take down a picture so he could hang, in pride of place, his mounted poster of "Team Brock" that he had signed.

It stated

"Mattie, Follow your Dreams, Peter Brock"

And that is how he passed, following his dreams. And that is how he will be remembered.

My heart goes out to his family and friends, and to all his fans, I'm so very sorry that we have lost another great Australian.

Love Lilly

I was wrong.

There is nothing I enjoy more than being proved wrong.

Im serious too, in this case.

If you wanted to know what the hell i am on about, go check this latest article from the local rag,22884,20367539-3462,00.html

It is an awesome artical about a hobart police chasing this moron who "tried" to hold up a newsagency in chigwell, but instead stole the poor womans car.

They vigilantly chased this moron all the way from chigwell (near hobart) to Launceston (a far far way peoples) without him smashing and killing anyone on the midlands highway (notorious for killing normal people, let alone car stealing bogans)

They apprihended this fiend when he smashed into two stationary cars in the CBD, he tried to run but they nabbed the fool. Unluckily, there was a child in the back of one of the stationary vehicles, but luckily, no one was badly harmed.

HUZZAH'S all round for the Tassie police, you sure showed me, and i humbly eat my words.

Unlike most people in the world, i can admit when i've been wrong, and i, for one, am glad this time i am.

Love you all people, and i hope this shows you that there is still hope in the world

Love Lilly

Steve Irwin, a God among Men.

this post was originally going to be about how the media has warped my mind into believing the Police are worse than they really are, by only telling me the bad stuff and not the good stuff *as only the media can*

But instead, i dedicate this entry to Steve Irwin, who has passed on yesterday at 11am whilst filming an underwater doccumentary.

He was usually one of the quickest men on earth when it came to dodging a blow from any one of our dangerous australians, but much to the broken hearts of all Australians, he just was not quite quick enough this time.

I will save you the details of his passing, but we have been told that it was very fast.

My heart goes out to to his wife, and his two children, especially his daughter, who lived for her dad and his antics.

But as in the passing of the great christopher Reeve, we must go forward and remember Steve Irwins hopes for the future.

As he said, you cant help the animals unless you help the people first. And that was what his life was about, educating people through his doccumentaries, and through his pride and joy, Australia Zoo.

Steve Irwin, you will be missed, but in your passing, know that you have done this country a great service and that as THE aussie icon, all of australia will mourn you, but will alse remember you for who you were.

The inspiration of pretty much all australians, especially young, but also old.

Dont believe what your first impression tells you, cause you shouldn't talk to strangers.

Your first impression may tell you, from first glimpse at my blog, that I do, but dont believe him, i mean, you only just met him... being your first impression and all... i mean, you wouldnt sleep with the guy on your first date would you? or the first drink he buys you? you would at least wait till the third date (or drink, as some of the cases may be)... or at least until he bought you something sparkly and expensive (in the drinks case, a shot of absynth, lit and cinnamon sprinkled over it for that fireworks display all girlies love so much...)

unless you were really really in the mood for no strings attached fling... but then why would you be on a date? you would just be out on the prowl...wandering down dark alleyways looking vunerable....

Anyhoo, love you all i have to man the front office now,

Love and kisses
