Further evidence…

…that as much as the marketing tries to force it on us, people don’t care about Halloween in Australia.  Number of trick or treaters in my neighbourhood last night = 0.  (And it was a nice, warm, Daylight Savings evening too.)   All my life (all 36 years of it) I have not know anyone that celebrates Halloween.

Two things I like

…besides Ben Lee.  You know I’m tired when I consider this a reasonable offering for a post.  But I like chickens and I like Brendan Fraser. Lots.  So it’s a good combo in my book. And no, I have no idea why he’s wearing a chicken suit.

Useless name crap

Found a link for this over on Ella’s blog:

HowManyOfMe.com
Logo There are
9
people with my name
in the U.S.A.

How many have your name?

But when I do my old name, there’s 15 people with the same name. Weird, I always thought my name was kinda unusual.  Very handy if I want to be incognito though.

Just something to remind us, that we’re unique, just like everyone else.

One for Freud

Earlier this evening I had to make a cd mix for swapping with the theme “word association”. So my words ended up going from:

love

sex

fantasy

island

holiday

rain

umbrella

water

wet

dry

hands

finger

lips

kiss

sexy

love

hate

sad

happy

girl

boy

…what does that say about what’s on my mind?

Friday Fun Things

As it’s Friday arvo (favourite time of the week!) I thought I’d share some random fun things from this week, including miscellaneous coloured text for extra fun (they’re not links, so don’t go clicking them will you?)

First off, the coffee I just had (mmm caramel).  And I HAD to buy the coffee scroll, ’cause it reminded me of a Lucky Parcel.  The shop had a poll going, “Who is the greatest band ever?”  – the choices were Queen, the Beatles, U2 and “other”.  I added the White Stripes to the “other” column, not that they’re my fave band ever ever ever, but the question was too hard, and they’re one of my favourite bands.

Yesterday this was in our PO Box.  What the?..said I.

But it turned out to be just clever marketing:

Mmmm, meat.

Along with a cool cd, I got this card from Sara:

By the way Sara, sleep always comes before swapping!  Definitely. Here’s a pic of the finished shrine I ended up sending for the swap-bot swap.  It is a fridge magnet shrine of the Virgin de Guadalupe.   Hopefully I’ve done her justice.

A random shot of my desk right now:

and a group shot of all the desktop buddies.  There’s quite a gang now.
