Well, today is Australia Day, and school is closing in. (Happy Austrlia Day to everyone by the way! ) You'd think that you would do something speacial for Australia day, but so far, I've slept in, and done absolutely nothing, besides go on the computer..! How very boring.. I'm young, and I need to be entertained! Is anyone else having the time of their lives today?? Anyway, yesterday I went to see a movie called "Fun with Dick and Jane" ... (The one with Jim Carrey in it). It was alright, not the best Jim Carrey film I've seen before though, but I still laughed a few times.. I also got a new phone yesterday, one of those new fangled ones with a camera and all that on it, I've seemed to work out how to use it, I think.. Hehe, but I have to say, I'm not very good with all this new technology stuff!!
Well, i better be off before I start talking about something REALLY boring, Seeya Everyone!!

-Alexandra

Mood - Anxious/excited (about school) but I'm also bored.

Here is something for you to read Alexandra - a bit long but it's worth it - Happy Australia Day.

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world. 
So he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would start by working his way across the USA from South to North.  On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read
"$10,000 per call".  The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God.
The American thanked the priest and went along his way.
Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it.
He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in
Orlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was. She told him that it  was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God.
"O.K., thank you," said the American.
He then travelled to Indianapolis, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston and New York.
In every church he saw the same golden telephone with the same "$10,000 per  call" sign under it.  The American, upon leaving Vermont decided to travel to AUSTRALIA to see if Australians had the same phone.  He arrived in Australia, and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read "40 cents per call."  The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign. "Father, I've travelled all over America and I've seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven,but in the US the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?"
The priest smiled and answered,
"You're in Australia now, son - it's a local call".

Aww, thankyou for writing that for me, bondgirl (thanks for entertaining me on Australia Day, I actually did read it yesterday but I didn't have enough time to reply ). If it was a joke (it is a joke right?), I didn't really get it though... (Sorry, I'm quite stupid when it comes to understanding jokes and stuff like that, hehe... SORRY! ) I just don't understand why it's a local call now in Australia? If you tell me what it means though I'm sure I will find it funny

It is supposed to be a joke but in our case it's true cos Australia is the lucky way.  Here is the explaination.
It's a local call cos in Australia you are closer to/in heaven (God's country) It's very patriotic, brings a tear to the eye and swells the chest with emotion (and not silicone) 
Happy belated Australia Day
Cheers

Haha, daftbird, it's alright. And  bet you if someone walked around MY school singing Beatles songs, they'd probably get bashed up.. I love the Beatles , I'll just sing their songs in my head though.
