The odd thing is, I'm going to be where she lives tomorrow evening anyway!

He's left chicken in my fridge. And instructions on how to cook it. Excellent!
I just called my mum. I'm going up to see them on the weekend. We chatted for ten minutes or so. Then she called me back just to tell me to bring a coat. How like a mother!
Early shift at work going fairly well. We keep running out of verifications and having to do sales. I'm like, "I've forgotten how to sell... want it? Ok, good, do this recording there's a good chap."

Here is a great place to live anyway. I don't need to move again! (Please God let that stay true!) Close to everything, friends in the area... yeah. I'll stay here. I will live out my life in a studio apartment in Hawthorn (Melbourne, Australia). I have a bathroom, kitchen, fridge, queen sized bed... what more does anybody need?

Quotable quote of the day:
Langer: I need someone decent to bonk frequently and hang around with for a while.

Don't get me wrong. I don't regret anything or miss anyone. All I miss is the constancy a relationship brings - the reliance on a single person who is always there for you. However in the last months of our relationship even that was strained, so what I'm missing now is more a memory or an ideal, than a reality. I am unused to independence, to relying only on myself, and I find it hard. I have lived in Melbourne since January 2001, and started going out with Dave in March 2001. Before I moved here I had my mother to rely on, after I moved I had my brother, and after leaving my brother's house I had Dave. Always somebody, and now just me. It is an odd feeling, but generally good. Something that needs getting used to. I have weird urges to SMS Cossack if I'm going to be home early or late, until I remind myself I don't have to tell anyone those things anymore!
Anyway, onto more mundane things. Work today was good. Went to some spiffy place at Crown Casino for lunch, got slightly tipsy, insulted my boss (who was possibly also slightly tipsy) and came home early! Not that I don't insult my boss most days anyway. Once he said that everything I say is a lie, so I said to a friend loudly that he (the boss, not the friend) was cute. Three days later he was still giving me the finger for that!
To bed, to bed. It's half past midnight! Not very late, I grant you, but I do still have to get up in the morning for work.

I ran into your blog whilst on a mission to hunt down
a slightly less retarded / less annoying voice for
Microsoft Narrator (I accidentally turned it on whilst
mucking around with my work laptop at home on a fairly
ordinary, overcast Sydney afternoon)... Anyway, doing
a search at google.com for:
"microsoft narrator" voice microsoft female
brings your blog up as the first result (or at least
it did on Sunday 12 October at 18:00 AEST, GMT+10).
In the end, I gave up on my hunt for a less retarded /
less annoying voice for Microsoft Narrator (Microsoft
Narrator was starting to shit me to tears).
I hope your quest for a new place to live is going
well, and I hope you find the above piece of trivia
useful/useless (cross out the word that doesn't

Yes, I'm living in Hawthorn again! Same old appartment block, same old area. Great stuff! Cossack, of course, is living upstairs in my old appartment, so I'll never be lonely again! We go jogging most mornings (when I say "we" and "most", I go jogging every morning and most of the time he comes with me) and I go to his place when I get home from work. Until now I've been showering at his place too due to having no hot water here!
I love this area. Where I live is great. Coles is a couple of hundred meters away, Glenferrie station is not much further, and of course the entire Hawthorn/Glenferrie Rd shopping area is practically on my doorstep. Again. Is good.

I've just put some washing in the dryer. When that's done, I'll pack a bag and lug it into the city to pick up the key from Andrew, then lug it out to Preston to let myself in with said key. It's hard deciding what to take - I'm working under the assumption that I'll only be there for the week and will need pretty much only work clothes. And shoes. Pyjamas. Bathroom stuff. Jumpers and jackets. Books? No, too much weight to lug. Mobile phone charger. My DVD's.
I'm going to be pretty much without a computer and the internet for a week, except for at work. It scares me that this fact worries me. Perhaps it will be the start of a whole new lifestyle for me. That'll be nice.

Last night. I went to bed. As I do most nights. Dave said he wouldn't be far behind. It was at least an hour later, I think more. The reason I'm not certain is that I was asleep by the time he came to bed.
I remember when he used to hug me because he loved me, not just when he was horny. I remember when he used to want to spend time with me - "Come home with me tonight," he'd say, hugging me at the tram stop while waiting for the 109. (Then we'd get to his place and he'd spend hours playing computer games and ignoring me, but that's not the point. At least he'd wanted me there originally. And we had sex.)
I think I have more physical contact with people at work than with Dave these days. Slaps on the back, pokes, hugs... it's normal at work. Then I come home and I'll be lucky if he touches me! Unless he wants sex. One thing about being hugged by, say, Anoka... I know it's not because she's horny!

I don't like you anymore. You used to give me cheap line rental and local calls, but now you're charging me $109.75 for a phone number I never had at an address I never lived. You're also making it very difficult to dispute these charges. You want three forms of written proof that I didn't live there, Ziggy, just so you can keep your beaurocracy ticking over and keep your overpaid money guzzling Credit Management department busy.
Have you heard of "word of mouth", Ziggy? I'm going to use it! I'm putting this rip-off story on the internet, that tool that you so kindly provide for a fortune a month so that the masses (the rich ones anyway) can put their sob stories there.
Have a nice day, Ziggy. Rip someone off from me.
I took a sleeping tablet last night. I think they make me have weird thoughts and vivid dreams. I dreamed that we were in the middle of sex, then Dave got up, took a piss, and wandered off to his computer for ten minutes or so. Then he came back and expected me to get on with it and I slapped him!
