oh my gosh, what was I thinking?
Ballet was good.
BYO, so we brought cheap boxed shiraz. Then went out.
Woke up 1 hour ago in a panic, having forgotten to set my alarm to get up for work.
Now at work. Think I'm still drunk. Need sleep.
Why didn't I call in sick? Didn't even know who to call.
Might have to sleep at my desk.

Went to Swing class last night. Learned the Charleston... well, at least a few steps of it, anyway.
Wandered over to Federation Square for the big Swing night in the Dance Hall. The SwingPatrol was in full, well, swing.
Saw some fantastic dancers, and even managed to get Scott to try out our new Charleston steps.
Fun, but I've never been more aware that I really need to practice more.

My cat, Mao, has Urolithiasis.
How is it possible that one cat can have so many problems?? I know he's just doing it to worry his mother and get back at me for leaving the country.
I just wish he'd choose a cheaper way to do it.

GE might have blocked my site/email. Discovered after I was unable to access them, but still able to post via Blogger.
Figures this would happen just when I really NEED it. GE blocks hotmail too and I'm not supposed to call anyone not work-related on my phone.
So what to do when I have nothing to do?
At least they fed us treats in honour of the big card launch today.
Well, I'm off to take advantage of my much-beloved MS Outlook calendaring.

My cubicle neighbour, David, just bought me chocolate. Biting into a Caramello Koala at the moment.
I'm a happy girl.

Learned how to dance flamenco last night at Federation Square.
All part of the International Arts Festival Dancing in the Streets events.
Some people (especially Andy, who is always fondly reminiscing about this) might remember that I won the prize for flamenco dancing at the Infinet 2001 Christmas party. The prize, of course, being the chance to dance infront of everyone to the tunes of my new CD. I think I heated the room with my face. But at least it was memorable...
Anyway, NEW CAREER PATH: I think I want to be a flamenco dancer.

Decorating the office at the moment. Blue Gold White. The colours of the new cards.
How exciting and productive.
Aloyz and I are a majik team. He's a virgo and I'm a leo. We're clearly meant for each other. Um, except that he's gay.

So, not only do the Aussies rename things like "garbage" to "rubbish" and "cell phone" to "mobile", but they've gotta take over the pharmaceutical world too.
I finally found out what Paracetemol is. It's just acetaminophen. They've taken Tylenol and named it "Panadol".

Starting to improve in yoga. Have been going quite regularly to the Yoga Arts Academy classes.
It's a new style for me. KSHIN GATASTHA (don't ask me to say that). It's quite physically challenging, as opposed to the "Yoga in Daily Life" style that I was doing in Sydney.
So I've been sore for the past couple of weeks. But I'm starting to get used to it. Well, sort of. STARTING to get used to the postures. My muscles are STARTING to let go and relax. Although I complain every time I get home, I feel so much better!

Having so much fun at work.
The launch of the card I'm verifying has been delayed, so we're still in "training".
That means, we're all trying to stretch out whatever work we DO have.
And getting to know each other really well on the pretext of "working together".
And, of course, doing our own personal business, quietly.
