Today I went out the front and found a Miriam-Webster dictionary - one of the big editions - on the verandah.

How cool is that?



(I suspect someone paid 10B to throw it out, but he could never do such a heathen and wicked thing).



Later: turns out he got it from an op shop, good man!

Later later: and it was a pressie for me, good good man!

I now have a permanent account.

I'm here forever and ever. I even have a 10GB scrapbook.

[livejournal.com profile] king_kobbe, many thanks for the lovely gift.

Just back from our drive to Ballarat.

Biggest trip I've done in what...one and a half years? Maybe longer. I panicked about what to pack (really, it's been a looong time) and even took my knitting (no I didn't knit). We played music, we stopped at a roadhouse. I regretted not taking my camera and then remembered it was, after all, only a trip to Ballarat which isn't really a big deal to most people so no loss there. I had a piss in Caroline Springs**(it improved the place greatly, I assure you). We turned the music off when my brain got full. We turned it back on again when my brain felt better. I played with an ipod for the very first time and said the volume control made me think of vibrator controls (more specifically, those ones that come with a wire to a separate hand held control) and 10B, once he got his concentration back, told me about the g-pod.

I'm intrigued but can't really imagine it'd do that much really.

Oh and we picked up the greywater tank as planned.

We detoured via Casa del Cranham for company and food which is why we're only home now. I was offered sex a greasy hamburger and chips but declined (5 minutes? Piss off!) because I am good that way and really do prefer high quality steak, and bad jokes were made by all.

Let's see how I am tomorrow.

*crosses fingers*

I went to my appointment with the Shrink today. It was actually quite a lot of fun, I was in the mood for a lively conversation. Damn but I miss talking to people. In particular, talking to people with whom I can speak candidly and let my brain go for a run. Although that might not have been advisable given her profession but too late now, meh.

We had an interesting chat about why I think I'm misanthropic and agreed that maybe I really *am* just realistic about people.

I caught the tram home.

tram

home.

I'd been able to lie down for the duration of the appointment, so I was feeling okay at the end of it and her rooms are on the main road near us, less than a dozen stops away (a healthy me would walk it automatically). So it was about a 50 metre walk with a short tram ride in the middle and my brain and senses weren't so overloaded that it seemed too hard. And fuck it, but I so wanted to feel normal for a change that I decided to take the risk. Sick of having to wrap myself in cotton wool.

First time I've used public transport in well over a year and a half. Probably longer.

Rather pleased.

My dear friend [livejournal.com profile] rickybuchanan has been blogging for 10 years today.


You can read a little bit about her blog via the Online Diary History Project, her contribution is here.

And if you like, you can go to [livejournal.com profile] rickybuchanan and congratulate her.


She's offline right now due to computer hassles...talk about bad timing!

Ricky's blog and her website were a huge help to me when I was first floundering around on this weird new internet thing trying to work out what the hell had happened to me. She's been there for more people than I suspect she will ever realise.


Anyway, when you read this Ricky, congratulations and here's to the next ten!
