Poor Farrah

I feel sorry for her. Not only did she have a long slow painful death, but she ended up being upstaged at the end. She must be spinning.

I do also wonder if the world would be showing the same amount sorrow if it had been Madonna who popped her clogs?

Yes, yes, quiet I know, but as well as settling into the new job I've been running as much as possible and finally, Little Drummer Boy, lifting some weights, but still no shoulder or lat work. Humph.

When I finally do hit the web for my amusement I'm being distracted by some specialist sites that are springing up, one of which is here. Don't think I need to say much more other than I wish it was updated more regularly.

Another that has been sweeping facebook today is this one, kinda self explanatory really. If you're really keen and start following some of the links under the pictures (hint; one that features the words trans and porn) you could be quite surprised by what you find. So you see all designed to keep a girl very distracted.

Now off to attempt yet again to find Cactus on facebook!

Hello World

Yes I am alive but have been so busy with the new job that I haven't had time to read blogs let alone write anything.

All is tickety boo and cruising along well. Having fun trying to get round my BlackBerry, having fun dressing up in uber smart clothes each day, not having fun with the full make up applying in the morning. The minutes I save in travel time are spent battling with cosmetics. Oh well, such is the life of a girl.

Oh, did I say I have a stunning view from my new office. As you can probably gather I'm very happy with the new adventures in front of me, the changes that have happened in my life, and still say thanks every day for how it has all has turned out and bless how fortunate I have been.

Day 4 of Shopping

I am having a rest day today. Over the last two days the haul has been somewhat less as I have got a bit jaded and also having a major sulk as the only two pairs of shoes I am in lust with are unavailable anywhere in NZ in my size, and likewise the Liberty print Ben Sherman shirt. I have however acquired a new all in one undergarment so I can wear sheer top layers without fear.

Yesterday I had a complete makeover at the M.A.C counter at Kirks, which was a pleasant experience until about 10 minutes after I left the building and my eyes started to puff up. Somewhat disheartening as I had just spent an unmentionable amount of cash on a large bag of product. It seems the pigments in the eye gunk are the culprit, fortunately a product I didn't purchase. As I have a Big Night Out planned, and the Burlesque show to view I am not tempting fate and just resting up.

I still have child shopping to do so I guess that's the weekend taken care of. The one item that has eluded me is a gorgeous piece of whimsical frippery for my amusement only and not a "work" garment. I haven't managed to find anything that pleases me. I may be tempted to look at jewellery instead.

I did succumb, out of politeness, and purchased a pair of $30 running socks as the boy said they were the bees knees. I have taken them for a run and, to be honest, they didn't make me run any faster or longer so my usual cotton predominant ones will suffice.

Oh well, off for a Nana nap now.

Puppy Love

Yesterday was day one of the great in between employment shopping frenzy. My haul for day one was:

  • 1 Suit, David Lawrence, dark charcoal, skirt and jacket.
  • 2 longsleeve boringly functional cotton lycra scoopneck tops.
  • 1 pair of heels, not killer, have to work my way up to that height
  • 1 pair Ricochet trousers, and yes I AM going to recycle one of the eight pairs I already own
  • 1 red polo neck lightweight wool sweater to wear under above suit.

When I finally got home bearing my heavy load I found on my front doorstep the worlds most cutest puppy. When I pointed him out to the child she was instantly besotted. I carried him down to the street while the child was sent to check nearby houses. I asked the tradesmen working on the property across the road if they had seen anything, the answer was "No, but it suits you." By this stage the puppy was shivering with cold and had burrowed it's head under the lapels of my jacket. It was uber cute.

The child's foray to the neighbouring houses produced no result other than finding places to offer baby sitting services, so it was off round the corner to the SPCA. Then in one of those quirks of fate as we were at the front of the building saying we have found this most gorgeous bundle of the cuteness, the owners were at the back asking if anyone had handed in a puppy. Harmony was restored.

Oh well, shower time now and off for day two of shopping.

Day 24 of the In between Employment Experience

And it's all over, well soon to be all over. I have accepted an offer, contracts being couriered round now, and one week to madly shop in. The position is even more corporate than I had before so lashings of new clothes are needed, and I'm thinking some uber femme killers heels will be required as well.

I find it amusing that the salary offered is higher than I started negotiations with, never had that happen before, but what is really spinning my wheels is the Blackberry I will be issued. Cactus and DPF, finally I won't feel forlorn and left out when socialising with you two.

I know I keep banging on about positive affirmations and positive attitude, but to me this outcome reinforces the power of deciding to face life's challenges in a positive way, focusing and working hard at locking the door to any creeping negative thoughts but also ultimately having total self belief and never giving in. Here endeth the sermon!

Part of the job description is "purchasing office supplies and equipment", and as the walls are covered in fabulous art works I do so hope that is included. I quite fancy doing the openings at the dealer galleries swanning round saying I'll have that, and that, oh and that one too. Oh well, back to reality now and off to purchase lashings of celebratory bubbles, and yes it will be that foreign French muck,.

Because he is just so UBER hot you can no longer find any videos of his Idol performances on the net, Fox has removed them all. I still have the performance of this one on tape and play it relentlessly over and over again.

I do so look forward to a compilation dvd of all his Idol performances being available, and of course the LIVE tour. Swoon, swoon.
