I sit here scratching uncontrollably at my eczema (eww I hear you think, yes, ewwww cos it's itching like mad, but don't worry i've stopped because I'm now occupying my hands with the delightful task of typing this entry). I also just stopped to put some cream on it. lol. it sounds like whip cream when you just look at the word "cream" but anyway, this is totally starting off in the most random way possible.

I have not posted an entry in like 9 weeks as the new (newer than when i last saw it) home page of livejournal tells me. I like that little piece of informant'ness (wha? yuh). I find it interesting. It felt like much much longer, but 2 months is not too bad I guess. Sort of. Well yeah, when you think about it.

I should probably inform a little bit of the hot diggity of what's been happenin' in my life. Of course in the shortest way possible because I tend to scale paragraphs into chapters and chapters into novel-length stories and so forth... so ah, I guess I'll start with...

...my job. I have since left Trims on September 30th. My last day was a Sunday. I quietly rejoiced at the fact that I would no longer have to deal with cruddy customers who squeal with every chance they get because they don't have the capabilities of functioning in a 'norm' humanistic way. I don't think a lot of them even know what a smile is. And heck, they're human for gees sakes! I.. me.. MYSELF.. I'M A FREAKIN' CUSTOMER TOO, a consumer just as much as they are and you don't see me walking into clothes stores, shoving my nose as high as it can get and then pointing down at my feet expecting the sales assistants to give my kicks a lick. Whashhhhh ish da deal with that? and why am I spelling like an idiot?

Two weeks previous to my Trims job due date, I began working at a new place named Screencheck. There, I earn my living by designing cards. Plastic cards. That is what Screencheck produces. So the quick dealio with them is: loyalty cards, gift cards, ID cards, membership cards, hotel key cards, stuff like that. The list goes on. I enjoy it quite a lot. The people are nice, actually a little too nice {suspicion arouses} and the days are more frequently faster paced in a "i'm just-a concentrating and designing on this computer and wow look it's already 1pm!" sorta way. So i'm quite happily chuffed about it!

I have also dipped into my pockets to fork out, actually nothing.. so I financed a 24month interest free deal at JB-HiFi to get myself a... darrrrummm rollll.... iMAC! 24inch screen. 2.8GHZ of stuff. I have no idea what the specs really mean but it's meant to be the top o' the range, super fast, 500gig hardrive imac around. For now anyway. And it's basically a TV as well! woooooo a hooo hoo!! Supposedly will still be super good even in 4 years when the newer versions come out. So YaY! I unfortunately don't have it yet as they had to order it in for me. But but but, it should be in my house within the next couple of days (i ordered it almost 2 weeks ago and they said 2 weeks at the most!). My mind has been thinking about it pretty much non-stop the past 2 days as I know the day of arrival is drawing ever so near. SO FREAKIn' excited!!!

Look at that. I said the updates will be short but they have turned into paragraphs.

though there are still plenty of other stuff i wanted to mention: (bought a new digi cam-Lumix-sexy-7.2mp, going to Perth for the Southbound music festival and spending 3 weeks there with friends-leaving on Xmas night!, i am currently mini-obsessed with cheese spread. eww i know. but it should hopefully pass soon!)....

I have been Vlogging too. On YouTube. Post me or message me if you want the channel. Please don't post the link anywhere though if I give it to you. And ah, yeah Facebook man. I don't get how these internet addictions suck people in. Well yeah, i know i'm in it too but far out!

:)

Yay I'm so excited for you about your iMac!! I've been drooling over it everytime I visit the Apple Store here. But can't afford one yet, for the meanwhile I got an iPhone to play with.

Oh I want a link to your Vlog if you don't mind.
