Wheel of Misfortune

May 30, 2009

$2 for 9 fortune cookies at Cheap As Chips? I THINK SO.

I bought 2 boxes (one on Thursday and one on Friday), so did P-dawg. We then ate za and fortune cookies. 

My cookie fortunes:

  • If at first you DO succeed, try not to look astonished!
  • Good news will arrive from far countries. (This one is good.)
  • Put the data you have uncovered to beneficial use. (Well alright then.)
  • Ignorance is a powderful excuse. (I got that twice, and yes, that’s right, a powderful excuse.)
  • Laugh at your problem, everyone else does.
  • Every excess becomes a vice.
  • Things will get easier,  once you make the initial push. (That’s what she said. lolololol.)
  • Willingness to compromise is often a sign of strength. (Whatever, it’s definitely the other way around.)
  • Everything takes longer than you think. (In bed. I got this twice, also.)
  • The greatest gift is love.
  • It will rain cats and dogs. Take the umbrella. (Well alright, I will.)
  • Say “I love you” to somebody. (Get fucked. Haha…I kid…that was rude…sorry.)
  • Only love lets us see normal things in an extraordinary way. (I think they mean glasses.)
  • It is much wiser to take advice than to give it.
  • Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they’re going to catch you in next. (Yeah, kids are noisy.)

And, the best of all:

Phil got these ones:

if you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything
if your desires are not extravagant, they will be granted
if you continually give, you will continually have
it is time to change again
and my favourite so far
you will soon crossing the great wate
  • If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.
  • If your desires are not extravagant, they will be granted.
  • If you continually give, you will continually have.
  • It is time to change again.
  • You will spend an old age surrounded by comfort and material wealth. (Pretty awesome one.)

And the best:

  • You will soon crossing the great water.

Waiting for the bus home from uni on King William. That street wishes it was in Melbourne, and Melbourne wishes it was Toronto.

Dear Spike

May 23, 2009

Today I went to the mall. After I drove off, my mother noticed something where my car was. It was a big brown ball, expanding and shrinking as though it was breathing. And that it was. There was an echidna sleeping underneath my car. I must’ve terrified it when I started my car and drove off. It was cowering in a ball. I feel terrible.

In my area, we get a lot of koalas, kangaroos (also, BAHAHAHA at that photo. Look at the joey. Hahaha) and emus, but NEVER have I seen an echidna, and God damn they are the cutest things ever! And I didn’t even get to see it. 😦

My father picked it up in thick leather gardening gloves, but the spines still stabbed him, and he put it in a box with towels and took it to the vet. It’s gone to some wildlife rehabilitation farm so it can prepare to go back into the wild. Apparently my dog didn’t bark at it or anything. It just sniffed it and was like ‘…the hell is that, mate?’.

I wish I saw it. 😦 They’re so cute. My brother took photos but they need to be developed first. Update when that occurs!

Come Pick Me Up

May 19, 2009

Currently listening to: Chuck Ragan – California Burritos

Another time, driving in peak hour about two weeks ago. I was on that tiny stretch of road known as James Road for about 15 minutes.


P.S. I met Chuck Ragan and Tom Gabel.

I have also just realised that both Chuck and Tom are really…quite…dashing. Very handsome. Oh my.

Cliff Diving

May 14, 2009

Gridlock on James Road, driving to Adelaide International Airport last week to pick up Lena. 7.30am. See those 3 small lumps? That’s lil’ ol’ Adelaide off in the distance. Such a narrow, windy, cliffy road.


Oh yeah, and last week my bus almost drove off a cliff. Not really, but is scraped the entire side on the guard rail of Belair Road. Eek.
