I guess the buzz today is Steve Irwin's death. As much as flammin' galah he was he was a dinkum ANZAC. In terms of putting Oz on the map he was the modern day Rolf Harris. So respect for he's conservation and tourism and work and condolences to his wife Terri and his children Bindy and Bob. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Needless to say Nrth Qld was a buzz with the death of their favourite son so work this afternoon was solemn. I saw the barefoot bushman and he just shook is head. I think it is safe to say it is a tragedy. I got in trouble because I was not as upset as everyone else but sometimes I think just because they are famous does not mean they can't die. I didn't know they guy so it is no more tragic than any other untimely death that occurred on the world today.
Once the buzz died down it was back to work for the week. It is only Monday and already I have clocked up 5 hours over time. I was that bloody desperate to get the work done that I somehow managed to lift the equivalent of my own body weight. Unfortunately my neck is killing me and i think I need a good lie down. Bet I still get yelled at tomorrow. Kind over these nights and even the thought of one year and ten months left does not cheer me up. If you spend 15 hours a day at work it tends to become your life so if everything at work is miserable everything in your outside work is lousy...hmm can I sense a bit of depression coming on?
Dinner last night was good. Good to have everyone over. I think final count was 15 so not bad for a girl that can't cook. Although I am curious as to why every couple brought a cask of wine. I know have four left. Mental not to self "stop drinking people are watching."
It is cane season so my house is infested with mice again. Flatmate stix is away for 13 days so will look at borrowing a snake. Can't do it when she is here she wigs out. Tried to convince she should get a cat but apparently she has a pet already. I have to remind her that Rasta is my dog and although I have her trained now to chase the mice she don't catch and kill.
I won't use ratsak 'cause I am worried Judd the stafi will eat any dead mice since he eats everything else, including the weed killing poison. Traps are ok except Stix and I won't empty them. Something about the sight of a dead mouse being worse than watching them run around your house and make their home in your stove. So snake or cat are the only options.
Oh while I remember. Jaz if you remember can you do my dishes for me? You know that cheesecake I had in the office today. Well at half 2 in the morn' I did not much feel like washing so the plate is in my intray under some paper work.. You do the dishes and I'll think of a good reason why my paperwork has cheese cake on it. There is a good girl...remember authoritah!!!
