I’m sorry that I haven’t blogged for a week. My boss was away for the week, so I was working very hard at work. I kept coming home super exhausted. I will have that Macaron post up tomorrow night for you all.
It’s Music Monday. Today I have Weezer for you. I adore this band, I have a habit of dancing to them in my bedroom with only my underwear on. Maybe a little bit of air guitar. This film clip is quite cute. It features The Muppets. Let me know what you think? It’s also a great catchy song.
Happy Good Friday to you all. I hope you all enjoy your long Easter weekend.
Unfortunately, I’ll be working tomorrow. Easter Saturday is just horrible to work. I don’t think I’ll understand why everyone has a panic attack when a public holiday is upon us. Going insane in the supermarkets, and of course they become very pushy and rude. Oh I just love working in retail this time of year. I also have a long shift tomrrow. Up at 5 AM and won’t get home till about 4 PM. It’s very tiring, the money is good though. Fingers crossed that all my customers will be super nice tomorrow.
Oh, and of course. I have a new theme. My wondeful friend, Brandy has created this new theme you see on your screen. Isn’t it divine!? I’m very happy with it. She did an amazing job. Brandy has an online portfolio called TEKNOphilia. She does wonderful work, and is highly talented in the PHP coding department. If you’re after a theme, check out her website please.
Oh Indie Girl is also on Facebook now. So please like us. You can find a link on the sidebar. That would make my day
As I mentioned yesterday in my blog, I met Norman Reedus at Adelaide Comic Con 2012. Although our Comic Con was very small compared to other conventions all over the world, it was a fantastic day. The turn out was great, and they’re planning to continue on next year. Bigger and better. Although I didn’t make it on the Saturday, I went along on the Sunday. I found some videos on YouTube of the actual day I went. If you’d like to check em out, just click and watch below.
I also gained some new followers over the weekend. So hello to all my new Adelaide and Norman Reedus twits. I was lucky enough as well to have Norman Reedus follow me as well on Twitter. Heart is a fluttering.
I did buy some geeky stuff on the day. I bought some Walking Dead comic books and a Alice In Wonderland figurine set. I also snatched some presents for my Dad, he got a brand new TinTin t-shirt and a set of Doctor Who lego men. I went along with my sister Regan and she bought some nerdy t-shirts. I’m excited to see what next year will bring. Hey, I might even dress up.
In other news, Brandy has completed my theme. Unfortunately, I will be working like a mofo until Wednesday evening. I worked 11 and a half hours today. I am wrecked.We’ve also just had daylight savings in Australia, so my sleeping pattern is already messed up. Seeing that Easter is this weekend, our shop is very busy. So the new theme will be up either Wednesday or Thursday. Thanks again to Brandy, she’s so talented that little lady.
Christmas is just a few days away. Isn’t it amazing how time just seems to fly by.I have been working a lot this holiday season, and it has been a nightmare. Everyone just turns into a monster. I’ve encountered some nasty people this year. It’s funny how people say that this is the happiest time of the year. In the back of my mind I highly doubt it. I know it can be stressful, but it’s no reason to treat people like shit. You can still use your manners and your mouth can still form a smile. You can resist the bad attitude and the verbal abuse. Working in retail, it’s just one asshole after another. Constant bullshit.Once Christmas is over, we then have the sales. Will it ever end?I’m not being a complete Scrooge. The next few days before Christmas (apart from work) I’m occupying myself with friends. Today my sister and I are heading into the city to start our Christmas shopping. Disgusting I know. Tomorrow night I will be meeting 3 of my Twitter friends for the first time. We will be at my best friend’s (Ellyn) how drinking wine and eating Cheese. I’m really looking forward to this, as we’ve all been online friends for years.Friday night I will be drinking beer with my dear friend Alex. It will be last beers for a while because he is leaving me to move to Melbourne. I guess it gives me an excuse to travel over there next year.On Christmas eve, Ellyn and I will be making and decorating Ginger Bread Houses. This is going to be so cute and fun. It’s one of my favourite things to do over the Festive season. What better way to do it on Christmas eve with your bestie. It’ll also be our first Christmas together since she moved back from England. Later on in the evening I’m having Christmas drinks with all of the amazing people I work with. Lots of Jesus Juice over this season, yummy!Christmas day, it’s always the same. Wake up, presents etc with my Mum and Sister. We spend Christmas lunch with my Mother’s side of the family. It’s quiet, peaceful and nice to chill out. And also eat a delicious roast beef lunch. After a simple Christmas lunch, my sister and I head over to my Father’s. This is where the party begins. Being from an Irish family there is more booze than food. Not only do I have my crazy family, we also have all of Dad’s friends from his Biker gang. It’s a riot and a half and concludes about 2-3 in the morning.This year might be a bit stressful this year, as my Dad is in a wheel chair. So he won’t be able to do much around the house. My Sister and I will be leanding our hands. Well, I should say hand. As we’ll have a drink in the other one.Have an awesome Christmas guys. x
