Good old Parramatta

Melbourne was lovely.


Today I had my first run in with the Crazy lady that sits near the Roxy. You are generally ok if you avoid eye contact and walk past quickly. Today I made the dreaded mistake of pausing in front of her when I thought that I stepped in something that looked like pee. I glanced at her then at the yellow stream of liquid. As I hurried off I could hear yelling “Youuuuuuuuuu stupiddddddd sluttttttt!”

Well at least she didn't chase me up the stairs.

Off to Melbourne tomorrow. See you when I get back.

Mr Whenman

I’m very grateful for my friend Luke, he brings me so much calm when I feel like I am caught in such a heavy storm with no one to turn to. For someone so young he has wisdom beyond his years. Thank you so much for your email, thank you so much for your friendship.

Nic and I are really missing your company.

End Of Quarter Celebrations

Something horrible happened at work yesterday; it drained everything out of me and left me in tears. When I woke up this morning I was still feeling pretty lousy and I turned on the computer to vent. I’m really glad that I didn't press publish …I would have regretted it.
The funny thing is, my assistant decided to Google my name at work today and found my blog. I guess I have to be more careful incase one day someone who I don't want to see my site finds it. (Don't worry Em you're welcome to visit anytime, you know I couldn't live without you!) *waves* and says a big Hi to Emma.
Last quarter our team blew the budget and did really well, there were whispers of go-carting, lawn bowls, laser skirmish and mini golf as rewards. In the end we all headed off for lunch at Grappa Ristorante E Bar with work providing plenty of alcohol for a boozy afternoon.
Guys, this restaurant is FANTASTIC! If you are ever in Leichhardt go try it out. The prices aren’t cheap, but the service, food and setting is well worth it!
Our Team - minus Nicola, Natalie & John who were down with the flu.

Everyone got presents...

the card reads 'Thank you for all your hard work and efforts in Quarter 1'

I recommend the fish...

There were also prizes given out for bloopers and funny moments that occurred during this quarter. I won 2 prizes for the 2 scenarios below.

Scenario 1

I often have talks with my manager about creating strategies to reach my clients on a more personal level. After one particular visit I made a note on the database to ask my client about her cat the next time I spoke to her. After some general chit chat the conversation went something like this:

Me: “So Marge* how is that cat of yours?”

Client: “Oh it died.”

Me: *freezes and doesn’t know what to say next*
“Oh…it’s for the best”

Client: *Silence*

Me: *Silence*

Oh it’s for the best!??!! What a dumb thing to say…….!!

Scenario 2

Imagine my client, the General Manager of a large multinational organisation. In person he is very conservative and very serious. After a long conversation I had meant to say lovely touching base with you Robert but instead I said lovely touching you Robert”.

Me: *Silence*

Client: *More Silence*

So I won a toy kitten which is self explanatory, the rubber gloves was in case I wanted to go ‘touch’ any more clients.

* Names have been changed.

Happy Birthday Rodna!

I’m at Baku now and I’ve been walking around like a zombie. Had a really big night last night, went on a Wild Boys Afloat cruise for Rodna’s 24th. Happy Birthday Rodna!! Despite my initial reservations it turned out to be a great night with plenty of laughs. Yes I really did can all stop grinning now!
So 21 of us all got dressed up ready to have a bit of fun (Sorry for the picture quality I was too lazy to scan it).

The 'buffet' reminded me of the food that you get served at camp and we drank wine out of plastic cups.....classy!

The guy on the left was Keanu's body double in the Matrix...and the guy on the right was errr...showing us how athletic he was =P ehhehe

There were 5 performances and the last 'performer' looked really scary and randomly picked girls from the audience, he came up near us and I quickly put my head down to avoid eye contact secretly praying that he wouldn't pick me.

Poor Sophie got picked ....I won't put the picture up...

Here is to a great night and many cheesy jokes!!


In something totally unrelated, I was watching the Charles and Camilla wedding as I was getting ready for work. Is Charles and Camilla proof of the age old saying “If you’re meant to be together you will be…”?

It's the Weekend, This week was a tough one. I'm glad it's over.
A big sorry to Hoi who probably emailed me at a bad time and had to bear the brunt of my frustrations brought on by Candidates who SCREW ME AROUND AND WASTE MY FREAKING TIME!!!
I'm fine now and I'll live to fight another day.
