Spent Saturday night at Mandy's 30th the theme of the night was Black & White (funny enough it seems Trish and Jc went to a party with the same theme). Thanks Mandy for the great food, great music and great cocktails!

Just as I was leaving work last night an email gets sent around to advise us 'a man has been stabbed in front of Parramatta Westfield, the surrounding area has been blocked off’.
Great. Just Great.
Alex thanks for dinner last night!

I was actually really sad to see her go because she was a really lovely person and a good recruiter. Although she applied for an internal transfer she was unsuccessful and had to resign. In a discussion with my work colleague I made the passing comment that what happened was really harsh.
My colleague responded that no, she had it coming and that she put herself in that position by going out with her boss in the first place. I agree that I personally would never have put myself in that situation but when feelings get involved it gets a bit tricky, furthermore she never intended on people finding out. I guess in her defence she was in her 30s, had just arrived from overseas didn't know anyone; the male involved is also a very charming individual. Had it of been a manager in another team I don’t think it would have been an issue.
In general most people agree that dating someone you work with is a bad idea, it runs the possibility of making things very awkward if it doesn’t work out. Seeing that most of us spend ridiculous hours at work, it’s a bit ironic that it’s also the place where we are most likely to meet someone especially when you work for a large company.

The role was suppose to be an ongoing contract, in the 2 weeks that he was there he managed to not show up to work twice with no call or explanation. When he was spoken to about this issue, he was fine for the next few days until one day he rocked up to work stoned. The final straw came when Friday was a mufti day and he showed up with jeans and no shirt on.

On a totally different note *winks* at Betty.

I had put off writing this post in case the person involved came and read it. Seeing that it hasn’t ceased to amuse me, I thought I’d share.
A couple of weeks ago I went for drinks with a bunch of old friends when one of these friends who I will now say is a really really nice guy (RRNG), tried to play me a compliment it went something like this:
RRNG: “Emily! Your back to normal!”
Me: “Oh what do you mean?”
RRNG: “When I saw you a few months ago outside the cinema you were HUGE! But you’re back to your normal weight now!”
Now at this point I thought I heard wrong but he even used hand actions to signal
<--------this big--------->. I wasn’t offended, more amused and a little shocked that I would be referred to as huge??
Me: “Errrr I’ve kinda been the same weight this whole time, may be it was what I was wearing?”
I may have heard the next line wrong, but I’d be 95% sure that he said:
RRNG: “Your legs were really stumpy” *chuckles* and uses his hands to make the ‘stumpy’ hand action.
I didn't know quite what to say so I just laughed?
When I was at work today I showed Alex the pic below to which he replied: “You look really Big in that pic”, so when i gave him the O_o look he tried to argue that calling someone big is not the same as calling someone fat. Whilst I admit to having fat cheeks in photos ‘Big’ would probably not be a word you’d use to describe me. Alex I think you should shout me dinner, so you can make sure that I am not over eating how does Thursday sound??
Saturday (Day) – finished watching the season 1 of House.
Saturday (Night) – Christina’s 23rd at Orbit Bar, really nice place and the view is amazing. (The rest of my pics will be up on my webshots)
Next Friday Matt's 25th, Saturday Matty & Rick's Joint Birthday - anyone have any idea's on where I can get a cheerleader costume?

This year has been a big wake up call in that things don’t always work out the way we expect and sometimes it’s actually for the best. It’s probably the dreamer in me that expects happy endings all the time – and you what? In some cases maybe the break up is the happy ending for the couple involved.
I also always assumed that being the dumper was better than being dumped, that way there would be less pain involved. Not true my friend assures me, the guilt and the pain that you feel of deeply hurting someone you love is a very hard thing to have to live with. For her, 5-6 months down the track things are not any easier.
I’ve never had an ex. I don’t know what it feels like to have one or how you would feel seeing them after x amount of time. Do you really reach a stage where you see them with someone else and it doesn’t bother you? Not even just a little? and what if the shoe is on the other foot where you are the new girlfriend/boyfriend and your new partner is the one with the long history with their ex? does that bug you?
I know this is a touchy issue, but if you are kind enough to share please comment.

Tonight I caught up with Rodna, Caroline, Jill and Andrea for dinner at Jazushi in Surry Hills. The atmosphere is fantastic, the service is without fault, the food was exceptional and the desserts absolutely delightful!
Between 5 girls we shared a bottle of wine, 10 dishes, rice for 5 people and 4 desserts. We all ate so much that we thought we’d burst, we expected the bill to be expensive and prepared for the worst but was pleasantly surprised. It only worked out to be $40 per person, for the quantity and quality of food tonight was indeed a bargain.

Jacky never celebrates his birthday's because it falls right in the middle of Uni exams, so I thought what the heck I'm going to throw him a suprise one! Even though it was 2 weeks late we had a great night!
Thank you to everyone that came and for helping me pull it off (It almost didn't happen because Jacky thought he was going to dinner with the girls and he didn't want to go... but don't get me started).
Special props to Piny & James for their very creative Tuvok card and Glen and Joe for making such a cute couple (awww).
