This is kinda cute.

Now, world. I think I have elaborated before on how this planet has been made so small by air travel! Well, the thing is, the internet’s probably made it even smaller. Being able to talk to people on the other side of the world?! It’s just insane, it’d probably take me 14+ hours to fly to people who may as well just be in the next room :th (Darn it, this isn’t BYC, is it?! :th :caf :frow :ep :weee)

And JFK? Well…. yeah, I doubt that would be able to fit into the next room. And the signal is kinda bad. Always wondered why I never missed anyone’s flight number here at Sydney! :gig (Stop it! :smack)

Director was on yesterday :weee (Okay, I give up. :rant) It means the controllers on the Approach frequency handle the flights directly before they land. It usually happens when it’s not so busy, during which times I am busy, and I always end up missing it. :caf There is a rather interesting “mystery word” I’ve noticed during the approach clearances, “Cleared for the visual runway 34-left on the ___s.” Still trying to figure it out.

I’ve been working on a Health and PE project. Something to do with healthy alternatives. Why we bother with this stuff, I don’t really know (I eat pretty healthy already) but I found this picture. It was absolutely hysterical. The expression on that bird’s face! :lau

Okay, over and out. Must go now. :frow

Gee, isn’t the world meant to have ended by now? Hah, LOL!

Actually, it was kinda exciting this morning when I logged onto BYC and discovered my browser was stuck in a time lapse. It seemed to think that today is the 10th May, and the entire forum is stuck at where we were on May 10th. Oh, of course, I can still post and read through threads and pages that, according to my browser, don’t exist yet 😛 Oh, the mysterious mind of my computer. :caf Oh, good. I’ve discovered that staying within one thread and not venturing outside will correct his problems. As long as I stay inside the thread. :he

This whole end-of-the-world bull has got me thinking though – what if the world WERE really to end soon (gee, nobody knows when that’s going to happen, apart from perhaps God, but I wonder if he’s made his decision yet. Perhaps he originally did plan it for today, but seeing as someone saw through him, he had to choose again because it’s meant to be his lil’ secret.) 😉

What would my bucket list be? Things I want to do before I die…

1. Visit a stock exchange.

2. Fly solo.

3. Meet someone from BYC.

4. Visit America, and preferably New York, Dallas and Atlanta.

What would your bucket lists be, World? I’ve never been one for relationships. Good friends beat anything, but I expect one day to settle down, find a guy or somethin’. Just not yet!

My mother got a chain-email from an old friend in the UK. This one seriously had me in stitches.

Oh, finally! It’s been hanging around that three digit mark for longer than was strictly necessary. Fuel surcharges have gone up HOW many times?! Maybe that’s getting close to the three digit mark too….

Trying to figure out how the economy works. You’re probably thinking: Bahahaha! There’s even a way the economy works? This child is a lunatic.

I meant more along the lines of that high interest rates tend to lower inflation because it’s harder for people to borrow money and they don’t spend as much. I mean, this is probably not the case most of the time, but I’m have never been clear on these basic principles. I never even used to know what inflation was. Took me several reads of the same article to shake my brain into compliance. I’m becoming smarter and smarter and each day, don’t you go around thinking I’m a lunatic! *waggles finger*

I learned several new words that appear to have double meanings. It was really rather intriguing! I mean, who knew what a “float” is, or gee even freakin’ capital! (well, okay, I’m probably just blissfully ignorant in that case :P), liquidity etc.

I used to love the song Good Girls Go Bad by Cobra Starship and Leighton Meester. It’s an amazing song. I just gave it another listen, as well as a new one called Rescue Me (You and Me at Six) that is pretty cool too.

I’ve been talking to one of those dudes over in the States who lives in the country. Gee, if I ever went to live in the country for more than a few days I’d probably resort to unhealthy measures. 😛 I mean, sure, you could probably get a better view of the stars but like Crazy says, it’s Power out, Life over for us city slickers. And what on earth do I do when my stash of chocolate runs out before our weekly trip to the shopping complex in the nearest town seven thousand miles away, huh?!

Oh yeah, and best quote ever, hands down? “I smell a visual”. HAH! *cracks up* Hehehe…. I think I was referring to something at Kingsford Smith. (Oh, I have a dollar coin with his face on it, by the way. I’m going to take care of that one.) Today in physics we were discussing unbalanced forces and how either the speed or the direction is going to change. I bought out the clockwork, heading 240, slow to 210. 😉

Oh! And has anybody heard of these jokes? In my opinion, they are positively hysterical. (I’ve just picked my favourites. Full version at lukasland)

P: = The problem logged by the pilot.

S: = The solution and action taken by the engineers.

P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 fpm descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That’s what they’re there for.

P: IFF inoperative.
S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you’re right.

P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

Oh wow, man, I’ve just discovered I can haz cheezburger!! (The real one, not crack cocaine) I can’t seem to find those hysterical pictures with the phrase under them… like oh how about:

I still don’t have much idea of what I’m actually meant to blog about… perhaps I should ask Eenie or Kooshie, but I just feel like writing something.

Hmm… yeah, they’re putting Ashton Kutcher on Two and a Half Men?! Gee, that’s going to be a bit hard to get used to. If I remember correctly, Ashton has previously been cast into more younger roles. And “Uncle Ash”? “Grandma can’t drive when she’s been drinking.” “Why not? Uncle Ash does!” Yeah… just doesn’t have the same ring to it. *sighs* Oh, Charlie, why did you have to pay so many visits to our good friend Bob…

Oh, has anyone seem that picture of Obama and Osama playing Hide and Seek? Someone posted it on the BYC Random Picture thread. I like that thread.

Ossy! I gotcha!

Oh man… so much to do. I gotta go to work, I gotta finish that project that is due practically tomorrow and I haven’t even STARTED yet… gee, this is NOT good! But, as always, pleasure comes before business and I’m chatting on BYC. Usually my other, more important stuff comes after the Americans have gone to bed.

Oh, and by the way, I absolutely love being home alone. I get to listen to music very loudly without feeling self-conscious. No, I’m not a normal child who liked Party Rock Anthem, I listen to Owl City and Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams. AWESOME SONG!!
