They're here!

Ok I am finally about to put up my photos! Not a virtual photo album as promised (didn't have that many good ones), but here's what I've got!

Ok this one is Kubu (the big one) with Diesel (the little one - duh!) He's a lot bigger now though!

This move is called the empress. That pink thingy hanging out of my pants is the towel I wipe my hands on (just in case you're wondering!)

This one is called the butterfly. It's actually not the best "butterfly" I have done, but I was having problems with slippage!

This one is called the bow and arrow, and again, not the best one I've done. I was really quite p!ssed about this as I'd had a makeup class on the Wednesday night and I was doing some really good moves. I decided to bring my camera to class the next day and I totally sucked! Oh well, I might take some more photos when I'm better at them!

Anyways, I'll get going now! Love you all!

I know I've been promising photos for a while now, but I can say with 99.999998576% accuracy that they will be coming soon. I've just uploaded them to my laptop, so all I have to do is get the flash drive and transfer them to this computer. And no I'm not being lazy by not doing it now. I am waiting because I will be taking my camera to pole class tonight, so I can have even more photos to upload. So be prepared for a virtual photo album!!

Am still feeling very detached at the moment. It seems to be going around though- not sure if it's the weather or maybe the phase of the moon, but whatever it is, I hope it passes soon!

And from the "it never rains but it pours" file- I was getting really sick of not getting much work. I'm currently only working 3 nights a week. I have to admit, if I was living out of home and having to support myself, I would have given this up long ago. The only reason I've stayed is because I'm living at home, and I love teaching. But I thought enough is enough so yesterday I put in an application for an assistant manger position. I haven't heard back from them yet, but this morning my boss rang me to ask what my availability for the rest of the year was! So yeah, not-so-happy-Shann.

I have 2 pole classes this week since last week's class was cancelled, so hopefully I won't be too sore.

Am heading down to see the boy on the weekend, so a good time should be had by all.

Hoping to get my Macbook soon, as the struggle for survival (ie the struggle for internet time on the computer) has reached its peak.

Ok enough rambling. Love you all!

What the bleep is going on??

Things feel so weird at the moment. I usually have a pretty good outlook on life. I never used to but this "optimism streak" has been around for a while now. The problem is that I seem to have lost it and have no idea where to start looking for it. Things are the same, yet different. Life goes on as it always has, but something has subtly changed and I can't put my finger on the reason, or the cause, or even what it is that is different. All I know is that it is. If I knew what it was and why it was, I could fix it. As it is I just have to follow through until something points me in the right direction.

My brother has just informed me that my pole will be removed today. Yes, informed. Not requested, asked, discussed. Informed. I have been relegated to the small cell that is my room. The only space in the whole house that I have any control over. His photos on the walls, his stuff in the rumpus room, the rumpus room quickly becoming his domain, instead of communal area.

Sorry everyone, I don't mean to add the to gloom, just needed to vent. Here's hoping the happy bubble Shann returns soon!
Love Tesah

False alarm

This post will probably confuse a lot of people! Some of you may have read on Jonathon's blog that we had broken up, and that was true at the time. We had a long chat last night though and we have decided to see if we can make it work. I had some really strange and new stuff going on in my life at the time, and it was probably a very rash decision on my part. It's true what they say... you don't know what you have until it's gone. Especially when all that's out there are inferior models.

All of the reasons I gave (as well as being quite confusing in the first place) don't seem to matter as much now. They all made sense at the time, but that was then.

I want to thank everyone who sent their love and support during this difficult time.

Love you all

Check this out!!

Current bid is around $44 (as of 1:20pm today). Personally I think it's a bargain, but I'm also guessing you would probably pay as much again just on postage!! But if you're interested, here is the link to the auction. Clicky here

Things on my mind today

I need to go to the osteo to get my neck done.

Freaking out about my ebay purchase. I transferred the money to the nominated account, but the seller doesn't seem able to find it!!! Will I have to fork out more money to get the items if the seller can't find my initial payment?

Is very hot. Trying to decide what to wear today that won't be so hot I'll melt, but will still cover hairy legs and armpits.

Hooray!! I finally finished mum's rug. Will post pictures

Am suddenly very aware that I have been promising pictures for quite a while now. Need to get a Macbook so I can load pictures straight from the computer without having to switch from my laptop (with almost completely useless internet connection) to desktop computer downstairs with broadband.

Can I really rort the system without getting caught??

Will I like the Macbook keyboard? Maybe I just need to play with them a bit more!!!

Baby Puppy is no longer a baby puppy!

Random Ramblings

Here are some (very disconnected!) thoughts in my head at the moment.

Why do I really need a Macbook?

Diesel The Weasel is now to be known as Diesel The Wee-sel (along the lines of the Pee-oodle. Must be related somehow!)

Learnt (well tried!) a few new moves at pole dancing the other night. One I'm kinda getting the hang of (some pic will be forthcoming) and 2 that will need a bit of work! have also decided that I need to practise more.

Am very sore from said pole dancing. New moves require new parts of the body to be tortured.

What's the go with Windows Vista?

Missing my sister

Am soon to start tutoring!

Lughnasa was great fun! (Chocolate cake was goooooood!)

Have almost finished mum's rug. Just need to tidy up the loose threads and do the edge. After that I will be finishing up some stars for the exchange students, then making a start on my tapestry.

Family gatherings (especially ours!) can be such a trial.

I love having a clean room but am totally incapable of keeping it that way!

Have to go to work today, but only for 2 parties, so not too bad. A, wondering if I need another job because at the moment am only getting around 9 hrs a week.

Why does underwear always go missing? (and socks?)
