Still alive, I've just been wrapped up in work and friends lately - so no complaints. :)

On the weekend I'm having an intimate closed birthday party for myself and my closest friends out at Joe's parents' farm. We're having a bonfire and a few drinks, and the next day half of us are trotting off to Dreamworld together. Hammond, Adders and I are Dreamworld buddies due to our ownership of year passes. Free Dreamworld, ANYTIME!

Also, the party's theme is 'The Undead', which I've stretched a bit by choosing to go as Voodoo figure Baron Samedi (or Baron Saturday, if you will), complete with top-hat, skull painted on my face, feathers and coat-tails. I stocked up on greasepaint yesterday. In these parts, fancy dress is serious business!

Kim... can I borrow one of your canes? I'll be nice to it, I promise.

I flea-treated the cats the other day - back-of-the-neck ampoules, they were slightly overdue and we saw a flea on Sawyer, so I did all three. Nami was deeply resentful towards ME SPECIFICALLY for days. I swear a cat shouldn't have that long a memory. The plan for next time is that Joe plays the ogre by being the administer of medicines, because they already think he's nuts.

Joe and I have been cooking a lot and it's good. Also good is work. What's not so hot is my recurring neck pain. Last night I woke up in the middle of the night and it was bad enough that I couldn't get back to sleep for two hours. It comes and goes - flares up, lasts for a couple of days, then fades away again. I'm going to see a doctor sometime next week in case there's some kind of Medicare-covered treatment I can get for it.

Also, at work I have been accepted by the natives. Their gesture of acceptance came in the form of a pair of super-inappropriate action figures lovingly set up in front of my monitor. Pics soon, because it's... a little difficult to describe. :D

Apparently if you forget to make a monthly repayment on your Westpac credit card, even if you had the whole thing paid off completely a few weeks ago, you get hit with a $35 fee. Who knew?

So long, Westpac credit card - the moment I pay that sucker off I'm cancelling my account and chopping the fucker up. I used to live without credit cards just fine and I intend to do so again.

Thirty-five dollars, that's ridiculous. As a matter of fact I'm going to call them this afternoon and get that back.
