Make a list.

That pretty much sums up the last 7 days. It's now Wednesday and I have two more days of work untill it's the weekend again! My plans so far involve sushi, alcohol, snack foods, minimal sleep and people. I have a friend's 20th Friday night but it's doubtful that me and the man will feel like trekking to Kings Cross after a week of work. I predict we'll spend the evening eating sushi at Top Ryde and drinking wine at home. But we'll see.

I'm working Friday this week because the amount of stuff I have to do just isn't going away. And the more I work, the more bookings I make, therefore the more likely it is I don't get fired. Then again I've passed the honeymoon period and I'm starting to slowly hate my job but I really don't feel like getting a new one again. It'd be nice to even get to six months in one occupation. Especially now that I'm working more hours and making a larger dent into my debt.

It's all a means to an end.

  1. Yoshi's Story, Banjo Kazooie, Pokemon Snap (LOL), and Donkey Kong 64. I was messing on FB when I dissed Yoshi's Story. I do love that game and I bought it, twice. Once for N64 and again on Wii. Amazing list, btw. Did you think of it off the top of your head?

  2. lol I just mean that it's pretty damn detailed to sit there and look back at your week. I'm not sure I could remember that much. You could have written the list as the week was going.

    Anyhoo, Harold Camping is the dude that claims the end is near. He's already predicted and been wrong about it before. He's an old ass man, he won't be around to predict this crap much longer. ;)

    He's a decent news link about it:

    And I hope you're getting Words With Friends from your iPhone app store for free!
