BEDA 2012 Posts 9 - 19

I know I've been MIA - but there's been a lot of 'stuff' going on in my life in the past 10 days. A member of my family passed away, along with a friend of mine - so a double blow :(

I got a day's placement at the local Uni Library as part of my course / assessment requirement. It was #####RAD I really *really* feel I've put the right foot forward in relation to a career as a Librarian.

Then of course there's the interview for the job here next week (everything crossed for that)

So I do appologise for the lack of BEDA - but sometimes life gets in the way of blogging.

That's all I've got.

I hope you are all safe and well. If you have someone in your life, be it a significant other half, a friend or a family member. Remember to let them know they are important to you - as sometimes people are here one minute and gone the next. Don't be left with regrets of 'I should have told them I loved them more often' TELL them now!

Happy Chocolate day! + Happy Easter to my religious readers.

I spent the day at my uncles place - it was his 50th birthday celebrations....

I consumed a lot of champagne.... napped on the couch and am still under the influence. His girlfriend is a *BIG* drinker.... I am a lightweight compared to her - however I think '80+ year old aunt' gave her a run for her money!

Anyway - I've consumed chocolate, alcohol, chocolate, alcohol, oh and pig on a spit, like a full on 'animal' on a big metal pole that rotated and stuff (Can you tell I've never seen a pig on a spit in 'real life' before!)

I'm now suffering from a self induced headache from eating my body weight in chocolate and also consuming the same amount in liquid via Champagne.

So this really is 'all I've got'

Hello Readers,

Today I played 'I am alive' on PS I parted with my $$ for the full game as the demo was #RAD. I'm really enjoying it - though a couple of negatives about it....

The 'items' scattered about could be highlighted better - it's the same colour as the sunlight and you kinda miss stuff.
More options to save would be cool
The ability to increase stamina etc would be awesome also (that might happen, I've not got that far into the game yet)

Other than that I had a relaxed day.

That's all I've got.

Happy stake a man to a cross day! I'm sure that's politically incorrect!

I'll try again..... Happy 'Eat fish day' :) Meh (feed my fish while you're here please!)

What did I do with my public holiday i hear you ask..... I can hear you!

  • I watched the latest episode of The Big Bang Theory and laughed out loud a lot
  • I read a book of my choice which had NOTHING to do with Uni
  • I played the demo for 'I am Alive' on PS3 and have decided to back up my PS3 - buy some credit and purchase the game - Yep it's THAT good!

Other than that.... I cooked salmon spaghetti for dinner, ate chocolate and spent time with my dog.... He took up 1/3 of the bed whilst I played play station and snored!!!!

My plug a site for today is Wendy Morrell. She's a writer from New Zealand and another IF friend... I have a lot of those they are less maintenance :P

Anyway check out Wendy's blog by clicking HERE

That's all I've got.

Hello Bloggers.

I was to have lunch with some friends today but the one friend I wanted to see wasn't able to make it - so I skipped it. I did let them know though as I'm not rude.

So any 'news' I could have posted about that is now non existent.

Instead I had a Uni free day... I gamed, watched TV, did some work out in the garden and generally enjoyed the absence from University work.

I plan on having a couple of days Uni free - otherwise I'll end up in a place where the walls a padded......

So before the white truck arrives.  Here is my 'plug' site for today. It's Heath Carney. An uber amazing photographer and generally nice man he's an IF friend.... that's 'Internet Friend' I've never met Heath in the flesh, but his witty comments and sense of humour on Twitter keep me amused.

You can check out Heath's site HERE

That's all I've got.

Firstly to any of my readers in Texas - I hope you and your friends and family are safe and well - I saw footage of the twisters you got... Holy shit!

A very short blog today - my brain is mush from punching out an essay for Uni. So all my brain power went into that.


My 'plug' a blog for today is Davo - he's a unique man.... with an awesome sense of humour. Check out his musing on the world HERE

Day four down.... Bring on five and a longer blog as I don't have an assignment due until after Easter :)

That's all I've got.

I GOT AN INTERVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I applied for a Library job... and I managed an interview - it's not until the end of the month (Easter and Anzac day makes April a busy (read lots of public holiday's month) BUT I got an interview.... so I am so happy right now.

Currently finishing off an essay on why we still need to teach cataloguing in the 21st century. It's due tomorrow. I'm happy with what I've got thus far - will sleep on it and then finish and submit it tomorrow.

I didn't get a plug in for a fellow blogger yesterday as I ended up doing a quick blog post from my ipod in bed via Safari as the 'blog app' I d/loaded didn't work...

Anyway today's plug is a lovely man called Todd. He's just lovely. You can see this for yourself by clicking on the link to his site HERE

Day three = awesome happy Sal.  Bring on day four.

That's all I've got.

BEDA Blog every day in April……

No this is not an April fool’s joke – I *really* am going to take part in BEDA in 2012. I’ve not done this since… *Checks blog history* 2009 the year I completed Nanowrimo for the first time. Perhaps that’s a sign.

 Anyway…… Today is day one of BEDA – I’ve spent my Sunday writing a report for an assignment on Collection Development Policies *Queue Library Nerd theme song* (I’m not sure they have one.. so perhaps I’ll have to get someone to create a library nerd theme song.) Anyway it’s due tomorrow – it’s still a shambles and makes no sense… and I’m just going to have a ‘stab’ and hope it’s right – worst case scenario… I fail…

 My BEDA’s will hopefully contain stuff about my day, what I’ve been doing and small segments that I find interesting to share… Oh wait… isn’t that what blogs are supposed to be? Meh…. Enjoy the writing.

I also plan to try and whore out I mean ‘plug’ others blogs each day. So staying true to my lesbian blood lines… Today’s blog plug is Lizzy the Lezzy. Check out what she has to offer by clicking the linking thing HERE

Day one down, bring on day two.

That’s all I’ve got.
