That and This.

No Haiku this afternoon, as fun as it was writing up yesterday's post. I could create a whole blog in Haiku quite happily. Perhaps I shall do that sometime. Hmm. The lightbulb just flickered on above my head.

Speaking of that, just when I get my head around using Typepad quickly and easily for blogging, it goes all tricky and changes on me. Not big changes, oh no, sneaky little ones that spring up out of nowhere and leave me scratching my head. Don't think I like it.

Anyway, more bits and pieces from me today.

No word on the blood test; the only evidence I even have of it is the weird bruise I have in the crook of my arm. It makes me a tad self-conscious actually; it's not the most flattering vein to have marks around. I still am having problems swallowing and talking loudly, it's a constant pain which flares up at weird times. I also can't sing to my full (and shocking) potential, as I discovered on the drive home this afternoon. (Some may think of that as a positive; thank your lucky stars you haven't heard me singing!) It's safe to say I am well and truly over it by now.

Dancing last night was hilarious! I still have no co-ordination, made painfully obvious when the grandma's around me were happily spinning around as I floundered in the wrong direction. I kind of like learning the steps to the dances though; it's quite fun. I'll tell you what though, I was sweating like a pig after we were done. Mum goes twice a week, I think I'll keep joining her for the Tuesday night beginners class. Mother/daughter bonding (notice I didn't say bondage? Wait.. darn.) sessions!

Am absolutely loving the newest Silverchair song, Straight Lines. It seems like they've grown up a lot, I remember buying Frogstomp while I was in primary school. All my non-Aussie readers, I suggest you download it. It's well worth it, Daniel Johns has a great voice;

Wake me up low with a fever
Walking in a straight line
Set me on fire in the evening
Everything will be fine
Waking up strong in the morning
Walking in a straight line
Lately I?m a desperate believer
But I?m walking in a straight line.

Am absolutely NOT loving the fact that the DVD player in my bedroom has blown up out of nowhere, taking with it one of my X-Files DVDs. Roar. I don't care so much about the crappy player, I want the disc out! Mick very helpfully suggested I just smash it, but I'm trying to restrain myself until I see my dad next, see if he can make it behave.

Uh oh, looks like you're going to have to acquire a pair of cowgirl boots! No more plain old black ones for you!

I used to dance all the time!! Get shoes that have slippery bottoms (or even dance shoes - like jazz shoes) the dancing will be easier. That is, unless you are totally uncoordinated, then you might just hurt yourself. :) LOL

Oooooooh I didn't know silverchair had a new song, that's how pathetic I am. Their last album (Diorama) was fantastic, so I am very interested in their new stuff. :D

Glad that youre having (uncoordinated) fun at line dancing haha dont forget to hold on to the pockets of your jeans as you step to and fro hahaha. ;) Have fun!

Glad to hear that you didn't get banned from the dancing class because of poor coordination.

See if your DVD player has a tiny hole somewhere near the tray. If it does, stick a straightened paper clip in it and see if you can manually eject it. Unless you've followed alternative advice and smashed it of course. :-)
