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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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,.

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