Doofus

OMG I thought it only happened in slapstick comedies and those gag videos online, but no - it happens in real life. 'What?' I hear you ask. Well, not-so-long-story short, I FELL OFF THE TREADMILL at the gym today!

See, I was just starting a walk on the treadmill when I got there, as is my custom, when S (one of the trainers) cane up behind me to tell me that my personal trainer J had to rush off. So of course, I turned when i heard my name, and lost my rhythm on the machine and narrowly missed losing my nose.

Funny as!
Okay, maybe not so.

Why can't *my* fortress of solitude be crystalline? Damn you, Superman!

[ mood = downheartedly sad music = Stephen Gately - Do Without Me ]

This entry was embargoed on 11 May 2005 for one month.
This entry was released on 10 June 2005, and permanently edited on 16 June 2005.

Well, it seems that I am once again single. Goddammit, what's wrong with me that I can't find a stable relationship to be in? Curses to the internet and online chat - the scourge of broken hearts and relationships everywhere, I reckon.

What is wrong with people (myself included) that they/we can't bring ourselves to pick up the damned phone and call the people we need to call; that we can't enunciate in words what we are feeling, and the effects that situations are having on us. A crisis of emotions, with the inclusion of weakness in the form of low self-esteem.

I just can't take my stoopid emotional problems any more - mood swings, untreated psycho-illness .... whatever you want to call it. I'm f*cked in the head - yes, I'm the first to admit that. And yeah, I can sit here and say "I'm only human" or "things will get better" or "I'll adapt", but at the end of the day, I spent today and this evening in a mess - my temporary house of cards blown down once again by my own stoopid need to open the windows to let someone other than myself into my house.

Why do I bother?

Star Wars Episode I : The Phantom DVD

[ mood = buzzed music = Tragically Hip - Nautical Disaster ]

I am wrapped - EC got me a ticket into the Directors Lounge to see Star Wars Episode III on it's Australian premiere date! A thousand thousand sardines to EC! And we were planning on having a bit of an Episode I and II double feature ahead of going to see III but we have hit a wall - none of us have a copy! I spent all afternoon checking video stores (of both the hire and purchase variety) with no luck. My paranoid side reckons every outlet has been instructed to remove all things Ep I and II related from shelves, except those visual dictionary books.

In the Chapel Street / Toorak Road area, I tried:
- Video Ezy;
- Blockbuster;
- Virgin Megastore;
- His Master's Voice (HMV);
- Dixons Recycled Discs;
- that arty mega store wot stocks obscure titles;
- Safeway, Toorak;
- Safeway, South Yarra; and
- Coles.

No luck anywhere! Grrrrrrrr.

So now the APB has gone out for a copy of the elusive Episode I (I have Episode II - it's sitting next to my computer now, taunting me).

And just to show how short an attention span I have, whilst waiting in the express lane line to pay for my tomato paste and 3.3L of apple juice, I was mildly surprised to see I had a Voicemail message. I mean, my phone had been in my hand for the entire 5 minute shopping expedition, and it hadn't rung nor vibrated in that time.

So I quickly handed over my hard earned (ha!) $4.85, and dialled the now familiar 101. It's a very odd feeling - walking up the street, ear to phone, listening to an oddly understandable message your fingers have somehow contrived to leave you while your attention was on finding the tomato paste with the lowest sugar content... yep, a five minute message the likes of which I haven't heard for at least a few weeks, since the last time my own arse decided to call me.

Ho hum - had to share.

Supplies!

I hate being without an internet connection.

Repairs to Caleb are going to cost up to $500 that i don't have! And i'm stuck for updating this blog. (And stuff has happened that i can't wait to add). Grrr.

But i love surprises, and i love presents. We are livin in a material world, after all. Presents and gifts are just too darned irregular these days though.

Just heard my dentist's surgery burnt down two days ago, further delaying my appointment. At least the bleeding has stopped. ;-)
