Good evening good gentles all

Once more I would like to extend an invitation to all to the next Herb and Garden Guild meeting
As always anyone is welcome to come, from those with only a passing interest, to budding gardeners to hardcore (or should that be hardwood) greenies

It will be held on the 30th of August from 2 to 4ish(ish) onwards at my humble cottage at
88 Creek Road, Mitcham, VIC, 3132


There will be a GRAND SALE, GRAND SALE, GRAND SALE!
Actually its more like a giveaway as I have an abundance of various herbs that need to find new homes.
The first six people to arrive will be given a free plant!
Any current member of the Guild who attends will also be eligible for another free plant!
Anyone who joins the Guild on the day will be given a ... you guessed it .. a free plant!
I also have a stockpile of seeds that will be forced upon anyone who would like them :)

LISTS will be the name of the game this day
I would like to put together a list of all members in the southern region and plants they have or would like with a view to future swappage!

Afternoon tea will be provided
Bringing along a contribution to this would be appreciated but not obligatory

Letting me know you are or even might be coming along would be great and I will happily forward a list of the plants available to enable your preference to be set aside

Yours in Service to the (Green) Dream
Belissario Lascaris

Isnt the weekend supposed to be for relaxation?

After a 'normal' week of hard core work , training on Mon, D&D on Tues, my body refusing to fall asleep on Wed and a rather drunken Friday watching FNL and Pirates while working on some characters for next weeks gaming session getting up early on Sat was a bit of a trial

Off to pick up supplies for the cat, groceries for myself and seedlings for the garden (though I should have popped into Spotlight to pick up some ribbon to make a token for the upcoming Herb & Garden Guild comp)

All done by 11am!
Though id lay down for a short nanna nap snuggled up with luna cat
Four hours later!
Ack ... couldnt be arsed doing anything so I grazed and watched tv for the rest of the day

Which meant all the house work (fixing the dodgy bed, dusting & vacuuming, five, count 'em five, loads of laundry, and a pile of neglected pots and pans) had to be done today as well as planting out the seedlings
Also paying some bills and getting the house accounts up to date

*sigh* I still have a dozen shirts to iron

Again , isnt the weekend supposed to be for relaxation?

I cant help it ... this one always makes me laugh
(especially since Ive been trying to teach my mates 6 month old to say " supply side economics are not viable in a modern ecomony")

SOCIALISM
You have 2 cows.
You give one to your neighbour.

COMMUNISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and gives you some milk.

FASCISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and sells you some milk.

NAZISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both and shoots you.

BUREAUCRATISM
You have 2 cows.
The State takes both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away...

TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell one and buy a bull.
Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows.
You sell them and retire on the income

SURREALISM
You have two giraffes.
The government requires you to take harmonica lessons

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows.
Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow has dropped dead.

ENRON VENTURE CAPITALISM
You have two cows.
You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island Company secretly owned by the majority shareholder who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. You sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States , leaving you with nine cows.
No balance sheet provided with the release.
The public then buys your bull.

A FRENCH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You go on strike, organise a riot, and block the roads, because you want three cows.

A JAPANESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk.
You then create a clever cow cartoon image called 'Cowkimon' and market it worldwide.

You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

You count them again and learn you have 2 cows.
You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A SWISS CORPORATION
You have 5000 cows. None of them belong to you.
You charge the owners for storing them.

A CHINESE CORPORATION
You have two cows.
You have 300 people milking them.
You claim that you have full employment, and high bovine productivity.
You arrest the newsman who reported the real situation.

AN INDIAN CORPORATION
Two cows have you.

A BRITISH CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Both are mad.

AN IRAQI CORPORATION
Everyone thinks you have lots of cows.
You tell them that you have none.
No-one believes you, so they bomb the **** out of you and invade your country.
You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a Democracy...

AN AUSTRALIAN CORPORATION
You have two cows.
Business seems pretty good.
You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

A NEW ZEALAND CORPORATION
You have two cows.
The one on the left looks very attractive

feels like its been raining for days ... actually it has
wish i had a tank *sigh* no more grey water for my garden
and the new and improved down pipe handled a couple of heavy falls without flooding the lounge room which has been happening recently
yay for me and persevering with a very long piece of twirly wire

so how about those food riots eh? ... i find that appalling ... i mean, peeps so angry about no food they be protesting .. bloody scary ... its just not right especially since we do have enough to feed everyone, its just not sorted out properly
look at how much we throw away everyday and 850 MILLION people sleep hungry evry night

whenevr i think my life sucks something like this pops up
i bop meself on the noggin and juts be thankfull for all i have

will there ever come a day where the food situation is so bad I am actually relying on my little veggie patch instead of it being a hobby
where you put up an electrified fence to keep he people away instead of just worrying about the possums
mebe i should invest in some bear traps

makes ya think

screw the spelling
this is freeform

aye
wot a great day spent fiddling around in the garden
some landscaping (that probably no one else but me will notice)
lotsa digging (minus weeds, plus poo and lime and an extra square meter to the new bed)
maintenance (cut the grass in record time cos i was running out of petrol and had to move quickly)
and shifting (my new panoply of orchids to somewhere a bit more sunny)

a classic friday night
slab, (well at least half of one) kebab and vids
the vids were just mildly awful but the beer made them work
alien vs predator, hitman and something called pathfinder (vikings vs native indians if you can believe that)
they were all bad but good at the same time

mel says I have the unfailing ability to pick the worst movies
i outdid myself

hey! its my good friday ...guess i shouldnt have had that burnt dead flesh then
stuff that ...i had a couple of dim sims just to thumb my nose at tradition
especially since my ma extolled me to light a candle at a church
will some incence and feeling reminiscent about friends both dead and gone do?

laughs at the drunken goat icon and signs out

yes.... its a boy!

Obviously my beer decided that the merest touch of my eager and hungry lips was cause enough to spurt its foamy goodness over my chin in an orgiastic exclamation of its ultimate destiny

I cant recall which post i read tonight prompted me to don my devil horns but it makes for an interesting silhouette (or mebe that should be silly wet)
Luna hates them ... she freaks out every time
Shes sitting on top of the monitor and I can just tell shes miaowing ... take em off take em off!
Wonder where she'll sit when I get a flat screen

Listened to Physical Graffiti the other night and remembered that album 2, (ok disc 2 now) should be listened to first
I popped it on the right way round this time

In other news .. yes its self medication time again ... can you tell?
And yet another ale that verged on immediate overflow but with a little lip service and a saucy look 'twas tamed
(i think this one is a bit shy but I think we can work it onto a threesome .. tee hee)

}:)
The Wanton Song just came on and its got me jumpy

More gardening emails tonight ... ahhhh ... is it strange to be calmed and soothed by wandering around barefoot in cold and slightly damp grass?

Bi the way.. gotta love my gf posts .. she be so clever
She makes me laugh and laugh

OK lots more to say but i think ive said enough

Ok so work was major drag what with my boss whatevering me, the operations manager being a right prick and the board members hearing what they wanted to hear rather than what i was telling them

On top of me feeling horrible beacuse it probably just sunk in that my starry eyed girl wasnt going to be home before xmas

Decided not to go to training tonight because i didnt want to inflict my bad mood on others

Self medicate! my inner voice demanded
(its hard to ignore it when its shouting like that ... it can be quite insistent)

And then ...
There was an email related to gardening and as the beer started to take hold (ahem, amoungst other things) while I was pounding away an enthusiastic response all the silly crap faded away in swirling curlicues of green growing things

Im stoked the Herb Guild is getting bigger and i am ever so closer to my goal of introducing 100 new plant varieties to my little patch of dirt in the Dandenong foothills (It must be near 50 now and 40 just in herbs)

of quiet regret is that my name isnt on the parchment that was submitted to have it formally recognised by the Crown ... another day not seized ... sigh

but actually it got me in a good mood ... yay for my garden :)

yah .. bought a couple of cds which i dun do very often .. led zep makes me happy too

forgive the spelling ...im not checking

dances off

father, its been 10 months since my last confession
deal with it

so whats changed?
well, the more things change the more they stay the same, the center does not hold, and the boat goes ... enough with the platitudes

im a better fighter (even i have to concede this now)
my herb garden is bigger, three dozen varieties (though vege patch work is slowing down)
i care less about work (a good thing lest i crossref katana vs the 'naughty' list)
i care more about mel (a good thing as she will be back soon yay!)

plans?
achieve the ever elusive balance between gf, sca, d&d, gardening and work
friend a few more peeps on lj .. so be warned if i start lurking on your blog!
have more fun in the new year (so what if my year is july to june)

huzzah for liquid dinners

cos i have so much good and bad in my life

the bad stuff is just crap
work is crappy
just worked through a patch of 'everything i turn my hand to is turns to crap'
like a reverse midas touch
still dealin with that thought stream after all these years
mising mel horribly
it took a few months of her not being around to realise how much better she makes my life
and i told her so
(even after she forgot our anniversay, the fifth one btw)

ps i won't menton how i only remembered after a cpl o' pints at the pub

on a brighter note

finished off the next garden bed ... even cut in the brick edging i wanted
prepared another garden bed to take sweet peas and broad beans (figuring the ornamental peas will take off earlier and keeps to my potager theme)
was pleasantly suprised to see the soil ph 6-7 when i tested it with the newly purchased kit
even planted out some herbs; some more rue, summer savory and angelica as well a pretty native groundcover
the propogation continues!
and my passionfruit in now officially a monster

nuff now im off to see if can sort the garden piccies

12 April 2007 @ 04:13 pm
Aye what a week
Tues saw me resigning from my job followed by assurances on Wed i was stlll needed at work and all resources would be made available if i would consider staying
Blech

Ater picking up Dom and running a few last errands Little Brusi came around and regaled us with stories while I struggled to tetris the car
I imprudently stayed up waiting for Crowbarr and downed far too many beers.
Feeling the worse for wear it was hard run to site which took ages
Thank god Rohan had set up my tent so all i had to do was move in
Found i had misplaced the cap on the air mattress but only after a good half hour of futile and wheezy pumping ... duh
Soup kitchen and a few beers... off to sleep on the hard cold ground
(actually it wasn't that cold and i found a nice hollow into which i snuggled)

Friday's heraldric melee was a mess wih Arrowreach only winning one of three bouts and were routed by Des Cartes on two other occasions
A coupe of memories:
As i stepped forward two comrades on either side of me fell away dead. I remember thinking to myself ... hello Sir Brennan , hello Sir Brusi ... eep
The former took my arm, the latter my leg ... i yielded
Having been legged in another bout I was lucky to defeat my opponent and proceeded to run across the market eric on my knees. Afterwards somebody told me the crowd was cheering but all i recall being focused on was the last Arrowreachean facing multiple opponents
He fell just as I got there and another fellow took my head clean off, one shot *shakes head* ... how ignominious
Caddied for the golf tournament that afternoon and had a great time

Sat was market day so raced into town to buy supplies for that nights dinner which we were cooking. Floated around the market at site for a short time picking up a few things (fave buy a new tobacco pouch)
Agreeing that the food would be better the longer it cooked we started before opening court. Jai was too hung over to deal with food and Dom cut his finger... twice .. so chopping was left to me. Cooking therefore took me longer than anticiplated and ended up missing court entirely (bugga)
Minestrone (that came out nicely enough) and spag bowl (average sauce and the pasta was ruined becuse we did not strain it properly)
Barely drank that night as war was the following day

But my heart wasn't in it
Fought in the morning against what seemed to be overwhelming forces and planning that went awry
Did well i thought at the fjord where I held off three pikemen for a good while
So I skipped the afternoon and chilled
Got myself to the fighter auction and was sold 'cheap to one of the kids' no ego boost there
I cant quite recall what i did that night but i do remember feeling down in the dumps and was missing Mel into the bargain

Which carried over to the tourney itself
At least two of the guys I fought ended up being in top 18 and therefore in the finals but I did not fight well
(Image of Baron Hrothgar grinning as he strode towards me ... Belissario! ... at least he remembers my name lol)
Psyched myself out

Just as I was about to pack a few things and change for closing court which I had been looking forward to C rocks up asking for a favour. Not really thinking about it i agreed to go to the troll gate to summon and relieve the constable there as (sneaky sneaky) he need to be prettified for court (wink, wink)
Not taking shoes (not a good idea)
Wearing nothing but a tunic (not a good idea)
Having to stop peeps at the gate while closing court finished (not a good idea)
As soon as 'Long Live the King' was heard over the hill I almost got run over in the mad rush of a dozen cars eager to get away.
And then staying on another half another hour trying to slow down the p platers who were barrelling down the track
'Thank you for driving slowly ... remember 650 people are eating your dust'
'Hope you enjoyed festival... drive safely'
But it was fun anyway because i got to yell at people ;) tho on one occassion I had to add 'your excellency' lol
After heading back to camp shivering and barefooted in the dark got to talk to a few peeps re SCA, AR in general, about who likes who and who doesn't, plans for the future and next festival. MM's question game was fun so stayed up drinkin and gas bagging

Tues was pack up and the long drive home. Stop at my place to dump stuff and a hasty tetris, fly out to mt evelyn to drop jai off, then to mooroolbark for dom finally got home at 9.30
And o my didn't that hot shower feel good
I was aleep before my head hit the pillow

No big sleep in though. Promised I would help B & A unload the truck which took less than an hour then stuck around to chat

Pulled the tent out to dry and repack it. Did some gardening and took a nanna nap before mel arrived from sydney (yay) and we took l out to dinner to say ta for minding the house and the cat
(the house by the way was cleaner than I left it so cheers to l)

lots more to tell but running out of time so later

today is one of mel's and mine anniversaries
i received my first email from her on 01/04 ... umm ...2000/01???
but it was definitely on april fools .... lol
happy anniversary bebe ... miss you

sh mb was called off on account of everyone packin and makin ready for festival
as i was ... cleaned and sorted and packed and tetrised
wed night will be an exerise is seeing how much stuff can be fit into a honda civic

so far we have
Dom aka Toof Iddy (i still think it should be Too Fiddy)
Backpack, bag, esky and chair
Jai two of three bags i should think, perhaps a chair
Me ... armour, shield, two sticks, war banner (at least the start of one), a toolbox and esky (that alone takes up more than half the boot so far)
travel bag, bedding and cloak, two rugs, two chairs, milk crate w' tarp, mattress, pump, feasting gear and lantern and if i can fit it in a picnic table
oh, and two more small bags with me personal effects
it can be done as long as i dun take a chair, table and crate
(all stackin suggestions will be noted and utilised!)

and so the house is clean as well
as liss will be house sitting while we are away, bless her
i just hope the cat dun sik up on her lol

i love this cd
hope the boys like it cos i reckon they'll be hearin it a few times when we trek up to festival *g*



works bin nuts and if breakin point is 110 then im at 109 and climbin
i haven't got too much left in me *sigh*
5 more days
tomorro? ... once more into the breach my friends

should have started sortin the house and packin but im so blech decided to get trashed instead
*image: b playin air guitar and head bangin to gardenia*

got the ph bill today ... eep
330 bucks and another similar one on the way
bugga

me girlie sent me a token in the mail to wear on my belt at festival *smile*
protesting that it would be torn to shreds during the fighty bits, she noted she had three more buttons to sew on in any case
is it ok then for me to lose her token
point of etiquette?

i have bin thinkin about gettin a garb belt so ill pop it on there along with quite a few other tokens i have gathered
my only dilemma re this? .. only one axeman token and that must be worn on my fighty belt

after havin a light training session helped authorise two fellas which turned it into a heavy trainn session
still im stoked that i get consistently asked to do it
and mindful of that responsibility to them, the society and myself
valuable lesson for me tho... one of the guys had to be 'toned down' so to speak and im used to telin peeps to amp up a touch, the other one was pretty much spot on
and did a intro to a cpl of newbies ... stance, shield, slide and shot ... hold and have fun ... listen to everyone and do what feel comfortable
plan on doin this a bit more tho it stiil feels presumptuous as so many others would be better at this than me!

last shot of the night? ... hardest box shot in about 5 years of fighty endeavours
still.. came out of it relatively unscathed and not as body sore as i thought i would be

reminds me, posted congrats to the ar list but forgot to mention that belt that was mooted around last barony time
i wonder how i would get a timeliney list of fighters aurthorised @ ar?
i should start specin out the scroll i was thinkin about too

touched base with honored teachers
crystallising plans for next year
prettify myself and pavilion (sewing machine is fixed, just have to pick it up)
improve fighty skills (consistent 50% by EOFY07?)
get heavy marshallate (read that kloch!)
events and feasts (latter takes me out of my comfort zone)
herbalists guild?

there is so much more
but my third eye is closing and i need some sleep

last nights twilight tourney was awesome for me on more than one level

its was the last of the series and it was only thurs that i perused the rankings for several competitions ... cooking, sonnets, pretification, new fighter etc
qualifying for none i was genuinely surprised when i received one ... chivalry i believe, peer-like qualities i think
i am genuinely pleased :)

It was only recently that i took solace and direction from the knightly virtues and tho secretly i wanted validation in my belief that i was an honorable man, never thought it would be recognised so grandly

and there was icing on the cake as well of which i will speak again anon
( i felt honored and privileged and a bit overwhelmed ... nuff clues)

chagrined i also admit to a bittersweet moment when q told me he couldn't fight
after thinking on it for a while it is a disappointment

as a matter of course i listened to as many fighty conversations as possible even if the advise was directed to some one else

im getting a bit worried about my calibration again tho im sure i rarely throw a flat blow
id love to see the fighty vids peeps have taken so must press that
thats just vanity because i want to be a movie star ... lol


as soon as i can get 'party on and be excellent to each other' properly translated into latin im making a banner

way too long between posts

lotsa stuff between then and now

ta to auntie nic for the stats but having a squiz , well ack!

so far in the AR Bashes im runnin at about 40% strike rate
in KG Twighlight 25%

my next goal was to be considered a mid ranked fighter but after being told a 75% is needed realised have a massive amount to go
I will have to rethink goal as i do need one to motivate myself

I wonder what % i was before i committed to the points tourney ... i would have said 30% ... i now think it would have been less

i was thinkin about takin a pic of my vegie patch each day for year and 'movieing' it
i reckon that would look cool spesh interspersed with pics of produce

so tourney on mon ... i hoped to win 1 of every three bouts i fought .. won 7 from 25 (i think)... cant believe it was so few ...i finished up sweat drenched and ready to throw up

getting there and finding out my shield had split in two was bit liberating ... fought cruciform and had a bit of fun tho i sure could have used the shield againt the pokey pokey two handers

i thought the point was to get rid of as many tokens as you could (we had 15 each, gaining one per win and i ended up with four), lol din realise u had to accumulate ... silly me ... and to top it all off the baron of rowany won by one ... the last one ... me
i was fucken mortified when i realised i was responsible for taking the helm prize out of arrowsreach

ill be surprised if anyone speaks to me when they figure it out
*self flagellates in consternation and shame*

had an easy week at work as i took tues off to get the plumber in and lord knows i couldn't type till midday because of the mashing my fingers took the night before (cruciform remember)and had the credit managers meet on thurs
(tho if i worked just a touch harder i could have finished off the service ledger) o well *shrugs* im not mega motivated at the moment neway

garden took a battering this week in the unseasonably hot weather
the flower bed was harder hit than the veges but then again i did water the veges twice

two cancellations for poker tonight ... soft coks
well see how it all goes

got shitfaced again this fri... i seem to handling the hangovers a lil better

sat; strolled over to the garden expo ... saw peter cundall (ack to the church of the cundalites) who din seem right wing at all (i tole ya mel) but a bit cheeky and bit chillit out man kind a fella ... favors afternoon naps and not rigid lines ... i dun care gotta do the right thing attitude

lots more natives at the expo than i would normally see
bought a roo paw and a native bush ... sold mel on wistringias which i love and i think two of those and the lemon myrtle markus bought me will make a great informal medium hedge between the street and the house

i also envision two sweeping beds of grasses, rocks and groundcovers somewhat embracing the stream bed

looking for bricks as well because i want to extend the vege patch, the flower bed and dig in a spot for berry bushes ... yum

wandered through eastland and picked up a xmas gift for a friend and other odds and ends

my parents come back from greece this wed and im catching up with lil sis on thurs
poker night this fri and the sat poker tourney of doom

busy week, busy month

been a while lj
i actually feel guilty because i din post on tues or fri as usual

went to the high st festival last sunday which was pretty cool but the overall party atmosphere was subdued because of the intermittent heavy rain and the chilling wind
we stayed at the green butterfly and watched the passing parade thru the big window ... lol... sun afternoon tv, like one of those fishy screen savers

green man got so trashed he face planted later that evening
and so joined a small and exclusive group of which phil I decided is team leader

said phil was down from brisvagas with ms simi and kids so most excellent to catch up with him at our place for a bbq with gm and ms tash on tues
i nailed the meaty bbq goodness and mel's salads were yummy nice

phil even played d&d with us on wed which was its usual laugh-a-thon

fri drinkies @ monties but mel pointed out i had been rude to some peeps which i din notice
that doesn't speak well for me and its been playing on my mind

beautiful day yesterday and i managed to spend a few hours in the garden
did a bunnings run (at which mel tried to convince me to buy a raspberry cane but i had run out of money and am a bit wary of just poppin things in)and after the obligatory weeding and mowing started planting

turned over one of the beds and was happy to see the soil is becoming richer and more friable ... didn't spot worms tho
cogitated over vege placement for a while, then just shrugged my shoulders and started banging in stakes for the tomatoes and the peppers
popped in a couple of zucchinnis and heaps of basil (three kinds)around everything

onto the legumes and slotted in some beans, peas ,snowpeas
definitely going to grow from seed next year.. i just have to plant an extra month early i think
this bed needed some extra help so plenty of compost for the seedlings

then in went a punnet each of lobelia, violas and sweet pea, the latter i have never grown before ... i really want to get color into the vege patch

a bit disappointed i have a tourney today otherwise i would have spent more time flitting about my garden

to which aforementioned tourney i am off to now
i dont think many people will be there tho ... nice day, spring war, attendance will be down

the other staffer im starting to believe is just ditzy ... pretty bad for a more... err... mature lady

nuf of that ...im into my first cherry, second brew and second track of sky valley so im being soothed

my gf changed her user name and its taking a bit of gettin used to
after all i did put her name on my device and now its not her anymore
(assimilates data)
mebe i could changed mine to the one i wanted when i started this thing ... hmmmm

speakin of friends, seems to be the topic of the moment
befriending etiquette....lmao
had a cpl of peeps friend me
one asked, one didnt, din mind happy to friend them right back
friended another who din friend me right back
im a bit unsure about friendin a few peeps id like to

i post a bit and i wouldn't want them to clutter up their lists
or is it just a case of ... 'i find your lj interseting and would like to see what u say' and dun care if they dun pop you back

cos i know mines boring but isn't it out there for everyone to see?
dont we invite comment by simply being here?
random bits in the cybersphere
nm

got to talking to one of the girls at work today who i dun particularly like sometimes and found out she sings and does rock climbing
she just bought a mini which i noted and etc
din think she be multi faceted but perhaps we all have secret lives

got me thiking all the things ive been (and my boring lj)... spesh with my 20th school reunion coming up
hippy
dissolute hermit
raver
netrunner

theres a lot of sub setting in there but that just about sums up my life for the past 20 .. about 3- 5 years each .. sounds about right
*sniggers*
two decades summed up in 6 words

bak in a mo

had shirts to hang out
2nd cherry, third beer and track
so many chores so little time
just planned out the weekend with mel cos we got a barbie on tues
*lil dance of joi*
lookin forward to showin my friends the house, my garden
the new couch .. did i mention that?
black leather chaise lounge .. i love it tho mel seems unipmressed .. funny, she bought it ... tee hee

speakin of she .. she got sore arm
she saw doctor
doctor prescribes tramadole
wtf...
a bit extreme i would say

on the bright side .. we have 16 left ... *waggles eyebrows*

another bright side?
that turf transplant thing i got going along the path in the backyard has just given me new a impetus re the vege patch
been playing with those 11 pavers all week *smiles*
another couple of months and ill be makin circles and triangles

gonna plant out the side bit tomorro and give the back forty a seein to
mebe scrub the bird bath and the coming rain will fill it with clean water

well, sky valley just finished so time to go
vasili's garden will be on soon and i want another round before munchies

tired that is
had a massive sleep in on sat, possibly biggest evah

long week last week culminated in poker night
even bought light beers to make sure i stayed awake till the end
big dan won with some masterful bluffs but i think he was just gettin mighty good cards
i certainly wasn't

sun, i pottered around the garden for a couple of hours, in the sun it was quite nice (must remember my commitment to spenidng more time in the sun this summer)
slashed the manure crop and lo and behold i had enogh mulch to do two beds! woohoo ...havent even touched the store bought bail in the shed

hadn't been out there in a week so it was nice to see some carrots survived the slater attacks and the beets are coming along
the spinach has steadied very well so along with the overabundance of lettuce i almost have enough to do a reasonable garden salad
(nasturtiums are flowering so i have a garnish as well)
the snow peas are zooming upwards, yippee!

this weekend is going to be 20-22 so i am massively looking forward to that ... no shoes, YES!!

did a goodly amount of housework so the place is lookin clean as
ill start the spring cleanin soon
the shed needs to be sorted to ensure correct fittage of new CAR
bloody end oct delivery , bleh
i want it NOW

_starry_ had a blast in syd, good for her but i still like it better when she's home

naughty, naughty, very, very naughtyCollapse )

can't beleive im so crap at fighting again
im gettin trounced by everybody
even honey who had only fought twice this year had the better of me

got knocked out in the first round AGAIN
im so embarrassed
im changing sca my name to Live Pal or mebe List Meat
everyone could just call me Meat then
or perhaps ill get a monk persona, a priest perhaps
i could be Cannon Fod(der)


imm fukcin off for dinner

all praise the peeg of doooom

work is manic .. i continue to persevere

fought stormhold monthly bash (i was a bit peeved when a late fighter delayed the start a bit) and two other fighters complimented me ... good encouragement for me

fighting last night was good
14 odd fighters
two knights! and a couple of barons ... just not enough time to fight everyone
and not just fight .. i want to learn from them
tips, advice, observations ... i want it all

i fought till i thought i was gonna throw up (a good sign), fought a little more, than rested ... i know i had a little more in me

tourney next monday .. im gonna get creamed ...lol

i still worry about my calibration a bit even after all this time

what an uproar about the new rules!
i wish i could do something about easin the transition for the lights
we love our lights!

looking forward to this weekend , let me tell ya..poker poker!
if i don't get smashed at least twice ill be sorely disappointed in myself

monthly bash today
i did ok but im still listmeat tho ...lol

i was encouraged by a couple of compliments, always happy to take advice and i reckon rodrigo is betting better and felt q did well

cant believe my basket hilt broke
ive had that thing since i started!
perhaps a bit of judicious welding will do the trick

mel cooked a yummy dinner tonight, just what i needed

my neighbour called in tonight to pick up the papers re the shed

its built over a past easement
hmmmm
im thinkin the old laneway through orchards a long time ago
a large estate
there's certainly enough big trees along that not quite straight line as it would have meandered along the curve of the hill

but happy happy daze
when lot knarr's wife admited she hated the pitosterum (?)it was ever so convenient
its an ugly noxious, no understorey growing, seed machine that i, for one ... detest
huzzah for lot knarr's chain saw

she mentioned proteas
perhaps ill give her one to plants in the same place and wish she grows it so well i get to steal the flowers over the fence

if i can ditch the meetings i may even start to catch up
*starts poking sticks into the work monster to see if it notices ot reacts*

man its sucking up my free time and energy
i gotta do housework during the week now just to get some kind of a weekend

not a bad training session last night
skipped the dancing, listened in on the rapier for some footwork tips (?), got to fight rob (still table topping lol) and konga (still fast and strong) after quite an abcence and also bert and robyn (or is that batman and ernie)
the former challenged my calibration (which has been playing on my mind a bit) ... barley a welt and they did feel a bit on the light side

toms making me work hard to make any kind of an impact and q's just using me as a live pal ... lol

dunno... i feel my form is still down
i hope im just assimilating the whole improved defence / no mind zen thing with plan gestalt

centre
fluid elephant
breathe
with a plan

my neighbour wants to put up a massive shed along our back fence and has to ask my permission to do it (cos its so close)
i dun care about the shed, its the less sunlight that i lament

overdrive continues at work, went in today and probably tomorro as well
starrys dad and bro are still here and we have all managed to put up with my grumpiness

catching up with megs tomorro for dinner, an old friend from the college days who went to engund to work

received an invitation to my 20th high school reunion
i wonder how they got my mundane addy?
hmmm
80 bucks! obviously they have done well for themselves
i may go tho and have a night out for myself

worked in the garden today and the planting plan is a bit shaky but *shrugs*
in an aside , i asked mels brother two questions today and was glad he answered yes and yes
and so, i caught a glimpse of the mandela shape that is arising

running out of time now

work is just a slog ... talk about back in the mines
truly i have been a person short for three months

mels father and brother are crashing here intermittently during this week but they are not overly intrusive
lol... gonna get ray to walk the perimeter with me
i love wandering around my garden

and woohoo konga is a gardening freak as well so i intend on bailing him up about that ... often
have to love the gardenphiles
*must remember to corner him re sca herbalist*

and speaking of, just joined a my_green_thumbs but i fear that i will post far far too often
mebe ill go back to gardening web

fought ok last night but i am getting tired much more easily
my shots were not crisp tho started to get the 'aggressiveness' back
did an instinctive cross block which i was stoked about

i roared a warcry which helped ME but i think the others are quietly disapproving ... or they just can't hear me thru the helm, lol
and speaking of helms
picked up my new lid which was met with (tentative) but general approval ... and now i have to make the rest fit
*sigh* i guess the 13th century period suit is still a long range plan

and bill wants to do an ar guard which i embrace wholeheartedly but i do so hope that ar colors are picked ... tho i dig that a blue helm would be a bit silly ... hmm, mebe shiny ones
black and red seems to be the color for the year to make a break from the axemen .. dig the black helms (sexay)
loved the bearded axemen (beards optional)
i do not understand why they got such a bad rep

and konga confirmed no mystical symbols on gambesons (cos it was HIS wife that made the rule ... how cool is that)

d&d tomorro and an aggravating weekend cos i will probably have to work and i kinda wanted to spend it with mel .. she no here weekend after next

man what a week

bummed me out that mel went to sydney

i had a good ole time at the noodlot snack attack movie arvo
good to sit and drink with a bunch of peeps

the coffee house was okies but i always feel out of place at the sca thingies
their snackies and the wonderful kitchen smells reminded me of relo times

monday training was pretty cool

his grace sir cornelius was there and i got some one on one advice
got to fight him and i would rarely get the opportunity to meet him on the field .. man he's quick and fast and cunning as well
i was even his live pal while he demo'ed for the others during a couple of his classes

he reinforced stuff gwynfor has already told me

.. throw the first shot (get range and set the tempo)
.. final grip (when you impat with a shot)
.. maintain your elephant (a grounding balance thing with a body triangle)
.. tighten your navel (find your centre and go with flow)
.. have a plan (assess, react and ultimately go with the flow)

and speakin of flows, he showed a few cool drills
4 quarters not six sectors
think 3d
and some almost gymnastic stuff with a twirly sword (be the sword)


oh and i bought a helm ... 800 bucks ... eeep
well i did save all last year for this, and i was looking for a new one ...

shaddap monkey boi, ur playin at semantics again *slap*

in other news, the shower blew up on wed night and poor mel had to endure my grumpy outburst and had to stay home to wait for the plumber

i drove to queenscliff (after mebe four hours sleep) for a surprisingly good conference and then drove to work for a horrible day at work

and just got home now
self medicating poker
kyuss soothing flow

i thought a haiku had 15 syllables ... 7, 5, 3 or was a loose format
looked it up and its 5,7,5

silly work people ...
poor communication skills *sigh* and thats more senior managers
had another fool try to dodge blame when his 'plan' went awry and i had to fix it ... hes such a dummy and very very annoying
work is just a drag

and one of my staff dissed my lj so i pointed out all the things i do, all my hobbies till she conceded my life was pretty darn full
foolish girl ...

more bad news: mel cant come to the noodlot, coffee house OR ewan's birthday ... yuck, that really put a damper on my weekend
dont want to do anything now

but on a brighter note ....
did i mention i bought a new car? woo hoo

and i planted some snow peas and lettuce on the weekend on top of everything else i did

my new shield is almost done if i could be fucked stringing it
and my stick needs retaping
im going to make a two hander and another stick so i should get onto making quillions and basket hilts

i say and a lot don't i
and this one time
at band camp

training was good on monday
i regret not being able to listen more to the rapier stuff but 8.15 is my cut off ... 15 minutes to kit up and an hour of fighting
was stoked one of the rapier guys (piers?) came out for a bash
very nimble on his feet and not at all easy to hit

got some good time with gwynfor training betram and me
a three shot combo w' footwork (a shield hand pass?)
throw the first shot!
and more wraps...
don't stop at three ... five, six shot combo's or at least six shots in a row

wonder what sir cornelius is going to do to us next monday ... im getting there waaaay early

no dw running tonight, mel has the flu

my personal fave are all the nifty compartments

now we just have to wait till oct to get it ... ack what am i going to do for a car for 4-6 weeks
hope they still gimme the grand for my old one with no rego on it
and it needs a service and a wash


sat turned out pretty well
lots noodlots at my place before convoy to ballarat of all places
talk about out of my comfort zone
wayfarin, no shield tourney and lots of unfamiliar peeps

tho i did see my fair share of ones i recognised
i really have to make more of an effort to schmooze

i did ok in the tourney ... ie din get hurt at all
i think i won a bout against almost everyone
I wonder how i get copies of tourney lists
cruciform was easier than i thought
and ill try it again

i thought the vibe was pretty good last night, very mellow and friendly ... very much a community thingo happinin

food was pretty ok

a maarvelous opportunity to source advise from fashion luminaries

its so bloody cold

the frost got to some of the cinerrariums (?) and touched some of the bulbs (which still arent flowering *taps foot impatiently*)
i dont think that pepperoni i transplanted last month is gonna make it
lost my taragon (i think it may just die back ... i hope so)
my chives are far too droopy and the mint is struggling
NONE of the lettuce seeds germinated


training went badly last night
short one, tried to armor up too quickly and was uncomfortable from word go
fought ok and had more in me but rolled my ankle and went all wussy pants... boo hoo ... can't fight no more ... what a girls blouse
its only a bit sore today

work is insane and if i don't get some time off soon the top of my pointy little head will explode

well the baldric thing is happening and im stoked sui stepped up with some living history

did ok in the tourney but cant help feeling i had more in me and aslo that i was pretty lucky sometimes
im still wondering about that head shot zhou popped me .... man it was pretty borderline ... still worreing about that calibration

what an incredible debate on the arrowlist
obviously there are factions ... but the to and fro is healthy
i reckon if you asked all of them wether we should submit papers, they all would say yes so i fail to understand wher the contention is and i daren't look closer
im going to do my best to remain friends with all ...

discussion paperCollapse )


and oh no
im triple booked for the fifth of august

I have already committed to the doom film outing
Miss Ant is having i suspect a birthday party
and its Ewan birthday
and its monthly bash
Im going to try to get ewan to do a sunday thing so at worst i can rock up after the bash
i cant see indy NOT going to Miss Ant's thingy so the movies will be postponed im am guessing

work is 'orrible, even went in for a few hours today
but thats a whole other story

and still haven't painted my shield that one last time so i can drill it and string it
not that it matters 'cos next three weeks i fight minus the shield
back to being beaten by evryone again *sign*

next weekends gonna be a killer
i have left all the weeding for one weekend plus having to cut my parents grass and promiseing to help ewan
that means i have to do my place on sat
hell, hope its sunny ... ooo yeah, just checked the bom and showers clearing

and yeah for me, went and had my eyes tested and they haven't deteriorated, changed a little but not much more
im a bit apprehensive about the contacts esp if they are as unfomfortable as the eye test was

and double yeah, got a new phone
so cool, so me .... my old one sucked,... sucked i tell you
i rang coeur_de_noir today by voice activating my phone
it has mp3 (whatever that is)and a speakerphone
where do it put the kyuss
wahoo ive joined the new millenium
gotta get me a photobucket

and ta for dinner last night ms rubylee, was scrumptious

bugga the spellin, take it as it came
 
 
Current Location: home
Current Mood: chipperchipper
Current Music: wretch ... kyuss, of course

first lotr now potc
great costumes, great cgi but there was so much detail in some of the baddies they kinda lost their identity

seemingly convoluted plot opens up the 3rd
potc 3: the search for spock
lets see how they'll explain away the conundrums

tourney tomorro and think the newbie baldrick would be ace
with a great big pirate buckle
think they'll go for it?
