My crappy camera

Man, I really need to change my blog title. It's so lame.

Hope everyone's Christmas was just as you wanted. I've seen enough turkey to last a lifetime. How did we end up cooking 3 turkeys? Scary.

Anyway, many of you guys would know that I had a disposable camera a few days ago, mainly for pictures of my b'day/Christmas celebrations/etc. Well, I have to say... I fully understand why everyone has proper, digital cameras now. I mean, the quality of disposable cameras are great... NOT!!! Have an example:

Sad to say that about 1/3 of the photos are like this or worse. :[ But do you like my crappy Paint words? It rocks man. Well, I will say it does. Because I don't know phot0shop or whatever.

Anyway, there were some nicer pictures. Like this one, which proves just how short I am. Tallest to shortest... hmmm, where would I be??

And notice the rags on the floor...

Okay, here is proof that I am doing something adventurous (well, sort of). This is in our garage, after we carted the boats to our house.

It looks like Sharon is whacking me on the head with the paddle. Sharon, Dorcas and I rowed from Dorcas' house to my house, which took 50 minutes. The next day, My sister, Dorcas, Vanessa and I rowed back to Dorcas' house. It took 2 whole hours.

The funniest moment was watching Vanessa all alone in the kayak, just spinning around in a circle because she didn't know how to go straight. Wahahha... hilarious stuff. And I should thank all the people who helped us cart the boat up/down driveways -- Gor, Fred, Kathy... And thanks to Dad, who just saw us carting the heavy canoes and laughed his head off, then walked inside the house. :]

What me worry?

Hey guys! Thanks for everybody who attended my b'day celebration, I actually felt like I had friends. :] And I have to say that my extended family is as embarassing as my Dad. So you see where he gets it from. By the way, does embarass have one 'r' or two? I would look it up, but I don't want to know THAT badly.

And I have to say, picking nectarines in the hot sun is NOT my idea of a fun time on my birthday. Or on any day. It was funny though, my sister ended up even darker, while I didn't change skin colour. Wahaha... Too bad you couldn't go Dorcas, you could have teased her manliness.

"What happened... to the story..." I've got that Alex Lloyd song stuck in my head. *Sings in a really offkey voice* "...we were never meant to fail..."

As Simon said (Waha, that sounds like the game), I have to change my blog title. How depressing. But I think that I'll change it completely. Not sure to what yet.

Hope everyone has a super Christmas. God bless.

Witty quotes are cool

And I thought the guitar was bad. My Dad brought home a drum set the other day. Very very loud.

And we're not going to Singapore anymore, so that's a shame. Instead we are going straight to HK from Perth. And we come back to Perth on the 1st Feb, in the morning, so my sister has to quickly rush off for her first day of school. Heheh..

Okay, a bit freaked out as a Police officer just came to my house and asked me (no one's in except me, my bro -- who's asleep --) if I saw a small white car racing down our street. Just got back from Carousel (I seem to spend a lot of time there), so I had already seen the police car outside the street, so obviously I didn't see anything. Apparantly, there was a hit-and-run... hope the person wasn't hurt or anything! :[ Scary scary stuff...

Whoa man, this post has been full of depressing things. How about a witty quote for the people who are always early for things? And I couldn't really think of a title. Apologies.

Enter title here

I would've posted something earlier (seeing how I'm on holidays now), but I have nothing remotely interesting to say.

Happy birthday to Fred who turns "late 20s" tomorrow. Wahah..

Went for the child's first aid course on Wednesday. Did you know that the Heimlich Manoeuvre isn't the best way to help a choking person? Apparantly this technique can cause the item to be lodged even further into your throat. You're supposed to bend the person over a chair and hit their back. Wow, the things you learn.

I'm liking the summer weather so far. Not too hot yet. Hopefully this year won't get in the low 40s, where you can feel the sun's rays burning your skin... and you're inside!

Oh yeah...

The title is from the Hungry Jacks ad. I have the song in my head.

500 piece jigsaw puzzle: finished at 1.15am this morning. Hey, it really only did have one missing piece, I found the missing edge piece. And I don't know what you were thinking of, YOU manly man, but I don't wanna know. Your blogging is creeping me out!

And seriously, our cell is probably the only cell that can make such a big issue over lunch. I blame miscommunications and mumbled words. And also people who change their mind last minute without telling everyone else. :]

It's official (well, more or less, considering my family) -- I'm going to Singapore/HK these summer holidays. Sounds like fun! Will be gone about a month, at the start of next year. The last time I went on holiday was about 4-5 years ago. And I remember after about 2-3 weeks, I wanted to go home because I missed Perth. And my room. :]

And I just have to get this off my chest. Tommy Lee goes to College is the crappiest reality TV show I've ever seen. He has the biggest ego ever! And why is he doing units like Advanced Calculus, or Chemical Engineering? Did he even finish Highschool? Argh...
