Loz Cola

It's a matter of instinct, a matter of conditioning, a matter of fact...

A really not very funny at the time but now humourous thing happened to me today. I got stuck at the shopping centre betwen school and home, where I catch my bus, for almost two hours.

You see, I had the bright idea to get presents for Liz, the Office Staff and my kids. So I did. Without getting a receipt/docket because the machine was broken. Then I got to my bus stop and realised something. It went along the lines of Hey! I have no bus fare! I asked the bus driver if he could issue me a slip I'd have to take into the city office to pay for the ticket after, but he refused point blank, stating that there were "no free rides". I called Nick by reversing the charges, got my mum's work number, called mum by reversing the charges - but her boss wouldn't let her leave early - so I had to wait till she got off work.

Bleugh.

Fangirlish squeals abound!..

Best. News. Ever.

My season 2 due South DVDs (the ones I ordered in early October) finally arrived. Oh. your. God, this is just in time for my holidays! I am so, so, so very chuffed - I've hardly seen anything of season 2 - it's all new to me! Major yay.

due South related ramblings will no doubt be on their way :p

And if you want to find me I’ll be out in the sandbox...

If you're relatively new to reading this LiveJournal, and therefore not aware I am a mass of contradictions, you may be surprised to find out that I am not a chatty person. I can never think of anything to say. It is a constant demon of mine, in fact, that I find I am in wont of a word for a large proportion of any social event. I stand, sit, or lean in silence.

I don't have this problem with the kids, however, and do you know why? It's because the kids directly question me. And that, I can handle. Oh, I have answers. I have lots of answers. I just don't have any information to proffer out of the blue.

Also, just a quick reminder that if you were planning on creating me a custom banner in order to 'win' a custom prize, submissions close midnight my time, tomorrow. Considering the number of graphic designers on my friends list, I'm surprised there aren't more people who have expressed an interest.
