Cancelled

April 18, 2015 / no comments

I cancelled my Top Gear subscription yesterday. It took forever to work out that I’d already had a login set for the Mag Shop site, with username and password unknown, but I got it sorted. The only bummer was that payment for the next three months of the subscription was taken a day earlier. Grrr!

Oh well. It’ll be good in the long run.

In other news, I’m still awaiting the Risa Yoshiki DVD bought from eBay that was sent on Thursday, meaning I have to wait ’til Monday. So I can receive a large package from England and Japan in 5-7 days (weekend days included), and a DVD from North Brisbane to go 80km takes roughly the same time.

I’m also expecting some mail from a friend in Melbourne. She just got back from Japan and in the Jetstar in-flight magazine is an interview with Scandal. How awesome is that? Fingers crossed they make it to Australia one day. I’ll be going to all their show/s. Definitely need to start cancelling more unnecessary things and put that money towards Scandal. Or maybe a holiday.

Streaming

So I subscribed to Stan the other month. It is one of those TV streaming sites, and Australian-based, so I was able to watch some of the telly on demand without having to resort to plugins and/or VPN (which you needed to watch Netflix etc).

I soon became bored with Stan. While it’s great to finally have a service in Australia where we can watch what we want, when we want, it’s lacking in content. Don’t get me wrong, there’s some alright shows and movies on there, but a lot I already have on a hard drive or DVD. Full seasons, too.

For example Top Gear, South Park and Married… With Children. There’s only a few seasons of each. Why bother? And Dexter only has three seasons available (the same three I saw on Channel 10 years ago). Continue Reading…

Thirty Seven

Hi! How are you? I’m fine, thanks. Long time no see, whatcha been up to?

Nothing much is happening here, but at the same time, a lot. Like, heaps of working and not much else. So, the same as usual. Righty-o, then.

So today is Easter Monday. I’d usually be excited for today, because it should be pay day, but that’s been changed to tomorrow. Bummer. I guess I should be happy that between this and the next pay it’s one day less. But the irregular bills have all come in at once and I really need to get my car sorted.

Lousy Smarch Weather

March 20, 2015 / no comments

Wow. The end of March is almost here, along with the cooler weather, right? Wrong. It was 36 degrees yesterday, the hottest March day on record in this area… beating the record set two weeks earlier (which in itself beat the hottest day set in 2009 by 2 degrees). Today they’re predicting 34. Where is the relief?

So, what’s the haps for the past 2-3 weeks? I’ve been busy – as usual – with work, sleep and TV. I should be sleeping now (or at least in/on bed), but I had a nap earlier, thus me being wide awake.

Autumn

March 3, 2015 / no comments

Summer is over! Kind of. It’s still very warm, with Thursday expecting to hi mid-30s. Mid-April is my favourite time of year as the excess heat and humidity goes away, leaving me to sleep under the doona after a long 5 months of sleeping on top.

I can’t believe it’s already March – this year is going much too quick. But I am looking forward to the return of Formula 1 next week, as well as a 30th birthday party this coming weekend. It’s a fancy dress party, which usually means I’m a party pooper and don’t dress up, but this time is different because it hasn’t got a horrible theme. It’s dress as your favourite tv/movie character. I’m going as Al Bundy.

New Theme Time!

February 22, 2015 / no comments

It’s 5:07am and I’ve just finished updating this theme/template. Unfortunately, after a lot of trial and error, I’m missing feature images for almost all posts. But I’m sweet with the overall look of things – just have to edit some colours and whatnot.

I guess more time will need to be spent in Photoshop to retroactively post new feature images. Or maybe I shouldn’t worry about it. I’ve already gone over my monthly mobile data by 1GB, and I can’t afford to fork out even more money, just for the sake of having some pretty pictures.

Anyway, That’s all for now. Enjoy!
