I'm back! Because there are serious issues that need to be discussed!

I have a question to ask.

Should I be concerned that I am so easily distracted by sites like cats in sinks?

And more to the point, should I be concerned that I laughed so much that I almost fell off my chair? Especially at the 'Show me another cat in a sink!' button.

Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

I seem to have lost momentum with this blog. All of my lovely comment people seem to have retired, perhaps they are all more sensible than me... Very likely.

I want to make it to a year though. Who knows, I may suddenly regain momentum. I'm not hugely confident though because I have found other places on the interweb that are taking up my procrastination time...

Hmmm, do you think the fact that all of my recent blog entries have been about blogging is a bad sign?

I have returned!

Computers are great aren't they? Just wonderful...

*Nervous throat clearing*

I guess I'll change the subject to something that doesn't make me nervous about having tech issues...

As I have now returned to the world of blogging, I looked in my 'Bloglines' account which I irregularly use for keeping track of blogs I read. I've still got Samirah's blog in there, and it has changed again! It's an asian language blog now! How awesome!

Ok, that's all I have time for now. I have to do a few things to make sure my computer really is functioning again.

It's good to be back!

Dear blog,

Skvid has been unable to attend to her regular blog posting duties lately because her computer has been feeling quite unwell. The computer has been receiving treatment, and it is hoped that it will be back to its old self in no time at all.

Yours Sincerely

Skvid's Mum

6 hours to go!

In 6 hours I'll be sitting down to watch the Socceroos play Italy in the World Cup. It's the first time Australia has got through to the second round, so it's Hooray for historicalness!

Some ideas I've had to help fill in the next 6 hours...

- Set the alarm to wake me up at midnight, and try to have a nap (Way too practical! Even though I have to get up early to go to work tomorrow...)
- Cook Australian foods such as damper, lamingtons and pavlova
- Knit my dog a green and gold soccer jersey
- Get distracted by shiny things on the internet

Achey Breaky Heart (my blog entry titles are getting worse aren't they?)

Hey Sam, even though I know you've deleted it, I accidentally went to what used to be your blog. Instead of "Kick Start My Rockin Rollin Heart", it is now "For a fit heart, cut calories and TV viewing!"

I was so shocked that I almost had a heart attack!

(What's that? Exaggerate? Me?)

So I figured that I had better cut calories and TV viewing at once! The last thing I need is a nasty internet surprise ending with a trip to the hospital!

Raindrops keep fal- It's raining m- I can't think of an appropriate song lyric from a cool song to title this with...

It hasn't rained in such a long time. I forgot how bloody inconvenient it is. Mud and dampness and having to try and keep the dog dry so he doesn't smell like a wet dog... there are few smells worse than wet dog...

Oh dear, I'm posting in my blog about the weather! That's dangerous territory to be entering. Next I'll be saying "kids these days, they don't realise how lucky they are! In my day..."


Mini Random Junk Mosaic
  • I just bought The Grates new album, and it is very nice indeed (thanks for asking)
  • I also bought a new phone. It's got a camera and everything. Now I'm only about four years behind everyone else! How cool am I???*
  • New job is still good. Yayness for me.
  • Last night I got a sneaky preview of one of the tracks off the new Muse album. I'm getting excited already, but it's not going to be out here until next month.
  • Australia just made it through to the next round of the World Cup. There are lots of excited sports fans around today. Bloody bandwagon jumpers...
  • Do you think labelling this as a "mini" random junk mosaic made it cuter than my usual random junk mosaics?**
