|03:30 pm - suddenly remembered i have an lj......|
i seem to be only getting here once a week at the moment - very bad amy!!
Weekend was quiet but good - went to a fireworks display on saturday nite which was cool. Love fireworks cos my b/day is on guy fawkes day so have the whole connection going there :)
watched phantom of the opera on dvd. I love the soundtrack to that movie. when i lived in London i saw the show in the west end so when i watch the movie i always start missing London so much!!
Realised there is less then two months until i go to aussie. It is coming up very fast - hope i have money for it :( Might be time to beg the parents. I shall get glared at but it worth it.
25 minutes of my working day left - arrived extremely early so can leave extremely early. This is good as going out tonight so have time to go home and relax for five minutes. And think up good flirting lines for tonight.
Yay for flirting!!!

|12:36 pm - What a great weekend!!|
My weekend went so well!!
Most exciting news first - i have now got my full car licence!!! OMG How exciting :) Now i can drive my sister around without breaking the law (parents so very, very pleased)
On friday a dvd i had ordered over the internet arrived. Cos it is from the uk i thought i would only play on my computer but decided to try it on my dvd player anyway - and it worked!! Yay for me!! Sadly enough it is a dvd containing 5 episodes from a childrens tv show i used to watch when i was a kid (like 8). It is called 'Peter Pan and the Pirates' and i was so in love with one of the pirates (not anymore thank you!!!). He was meant to be about twelve and in my innocent, childlike way i thought he was wonderful.
On Sunday i inheritated a 6 foot high, free standing mirror from my parents. It is amazing looking and looks so good in my room. As payment i had to clean mums car (inside and outside) and do the ironing. Pretty good swap really.

|01:19 pm - the stupid bank|
Just went to the bank to enquire about why a cheque worth $115 had not appeared in my spending account. It took them 20 minutes to realise they had put it in my savers account rather then my spending one.
amy very not impressed.
amy pointed out that amy needed that money rather urgently.
amy frowned and did a bit of teeth grinding.
The bank kissed amy on a certain part of her body and said sorry many, many times.
amy rather generously forgave the bank. After all amy might need future overdrafts from the bank so must remain on good terms

|12:34 pm - good thing i like it rough|
Now that i have everyones attention i am of course refering to my two ferry rides i had over my little holiday and not anything else that may have occured.
cos nothing did in that department thank you very much!! Partly cos i have a disgusting cold that would take away the sexiness level of anyone, and partly cos flirting takes effort that i didn't have over the weekend.
Had a great trip. Went to a town at the top of the South Island where i stayed at a hotel enjoying spa baths, larger then life bed and utterly spoiling myself. Also did a lot of writing which was fantastic as i really needed to concentrate on that.
The ferry rides (which are 3 hours each way) were extremely rough. Everyone was throwing up.....apart from me, i went to sleep!!

Have you ever noticed how the day goes really quickly until the clock says 4pm and then the minutes seem be three times as long. So utterly utterly bored.
just had a phone call from Ieti in the auckland office.
I have a toy kermit sitting on my desk. would give him a cuddle but that may look a little stupid at work so will just pat him on the head as i leave the building.
in 18 minutes
I've run out of diet coke.
I could run to the shop but that may seem strange to my manager who might try to reason with me that i could buy a diet coke when i leave work for the day and do i really need one every five minutes.
the answer is yes

|03:09 pm - fax machines - why they come straight from hell|
I've decided i don't like fax machines very much. 90% of the time they work fine for me but 10% of the time they seem to want to make amy very sad.
like 5 minutes ago. when i was standing at the fax machine talking to a very cute young man when the fax machine started making the most terrible noises. Turns out i am good at jamming the fax machine.
the cute guy decided not to continue holding an intelligent yet flirty conversation with me and instead run away trying not to laugh.
Current Mood: at fax machines

|01:13 pm - Good weekend, bad monday|
This should be one of those happy, yay i love my life LJ entries.
On saturday i went to a huge sale at a NZ bookshop chain. I got 'The Dark Crystal' on dvd. It was the collectors addition so it had a 1 hour extra programme about the movie with heaps of interview time with Jim Henson.
Jim Henson is one of the most amazing people that our world has been blessed with. of course that is just a matter of opinion but i frown at anyone who disagrees (i have a really mean frown)
Then on sunday i went back to the sale and got 'The Muppets christmas carol' on dvd. Also packed with extras.
Such wonderful viewing :) :)
But today at work i accidently put some wrong info on a policy - a problem that can be fixed in five minutes. However i didn't spot the mistake. be aware i have only be doing this job for 5 weeks. I am not expected to know everything surely. but apparently i am. The person who spotted the mistake came back to my desk 4 times to tell me again and again what i had done wrong. In the end i took an early lunch so i could chill out and loose the ever-building rage.
I cam eback and there was a note on my desk telling me what i had done wrong and how i have to try and pay more attention to what i am doing.
What a bitch

|10:55 am - Hey there bridemaid, like the beard gives me something to hang on to|
Is there anything better then British comedy - especially Blackadder? A certain mother in my life insisted that i spring-clean my room over the weekend so i ran out and bought the second series of Blackadder on dvd and watched it whilst cleaning. Who would of thought sorting out my possisons could be so much fun.
went to a new hair salon to get the hair done friday night. Sat there drinking a glass of wine whilst they did a lovely job on it. Also very pleased cos i got a 20% discount due to the fact the salon is in the same building that i work in.
Current Mood: giggly
Current Music: Blackadder theme song

|08:52 am - still alive!!|
Just realised i have not posted in 6 days!! Just been busy and tired and over-worked!! But i'm back - and i missed you all!!
Had pay day two days ago so rolling around in money at the moment. Have booked a trip to Nelson for the long weekend (first weekend in June). I am staying at a nice motel which has a spa bath in my room. I love spa baths and feel a majority of the weekend will be spent with a glass of wine in one hand whilst playing in the spa.
Ah the life of luxury!!
Paid for the tickets yesterday (boat and bus) and the chick behind the counter forgot to charge me for one of the tickets but gave me the ticket anyway :)
I said nothing cos i am dishonest and like to save money any way i can

Got slightly too drunk on Friday nite at the work do - why must i get drunk in front of the colleagues? Will never speak to any one from claims again. Not as it is their fault but because i think they may spend the rest of the lives laughing at me whenever i come across them at work, socially, any other time.
think may quit job and move somewhere where alcohol is well and truly banned......like Utah!! Felt very sorry for me on Saturday morning, when i had to be at university for my once a month writing lesson. Got told off for not being dedicated to my job. Sat there trying to figure out how much on average i am paying my teacher to yell at me. Especially as i could stay at home and get told off by my mother for free!!
How was your weekend? Give me details!!
