Men and Women can be just friends

I like to argue this whenever someone claims they can't be

however i'm starting to think this is not true

just a few hints for the men out there:

If a female is constantly talking about her boyfriend (even if he is overseas) its a pretty good indication she has feelings for him and is not interested in you.

If a female sees where the conversation and/or physical interaction is going and moves away or changes the subject its probably because she is not interested.

If the matter has been discussed once and she says she is not interested a first time then more than likely she will not be interested a second time, if she is watch for very obvious signs.

It will avoid the un-necessary and extremely awkward and uncomfortable situation i was in on sat night when a male friend lunged at me. (this is the second time a male friend has attempted to turn a friendship into more since i got back)

From now on i'm staying away from un-attached straight men. It seems that the only relationship they are interested is not a friendship.

Racism in the workplace

Her: I hate the Chinese (motioning towards the Japanese athlete)

Me: He's Japanese

H: All the same thing. I hate them all.

M: why?

H: I'm racist (laughs), no because they bring drugs into this country, and kill our people

M: They kill out people through drugs? (getting confused and more and more outraged)

H: Yeh and with their machetes, you never see anyone else with machetes

And from my imagination a question:

most hated place in your city?

For me:

Chapel street. There is something about all that fakeness, and the cars with lots of work done to them driving up and down (pleaseeeeeeeeee) and the girls who are wearing mini skirts in the middle of melbournes winter, and the men who eyebrows are plucked and waxed more regularly than mine who also look all shiny possibly as a result of their excess hair wax dripping down their face. It all just bugs me just a tiny bit.
Still sitting on 4 calls

Now from here:

Here is the beginning of each of the following questions.....'If you had your choice between this and that, what would you do?

1. Skipping or Running skipping
2. Coke or Pepsi Coke (i can't stand pepsi- have a huge problem with the after taste)
3. Rock or Hip Hop Rock, rock, rock and more rock please
4. Laptop or Desktop Desktop
5. Cold Weather or Hot Weather hot weather (perhaps the only one of my friends who feels this way)
6. Swimming or Bicycling swimming
7. Chocolate or Vanilla choc (going from past experience vanilla people are a little dull)
8. Day or Night night by far
9. Looks or Brains brains whats the fun of looks?
10. Cable, DSL, or Dial-Up cable (people would actually prefer dial up????)

Now from here

Chores you hate.

I could take the easy way out and say every one. But lets just stick to the worst of the worst.

1. Ironing- particuarly ironing shirts. I refuse to iron another mans shirt (inspired by emmas mum). I would like to say this site the feminist me coming out but really i just hate ironing.

2. Dishes- when someone else has cooked. If i have cooked i can control the mess but with someone else- a complete different type of chore.

3. Hanging the washing out in winter, in summer i don't have a problem.

4. Making the bed. What is the point really? I basically don't unless there is a special occasion.

5. Spring cleaning. I tend to be a collecter of junk so this is a major job for me although i think i am getting much better. Having to pay to ship 40k of stuff back to melb helped a little.

I did find this:

Now where to head first?
I took the Blogging Personality Quiz at About Web logs and I am...

The Daily Grinder
I love blogging because it's like therapy. I can write about anything and everything that happens to me - from the food I ate to what I was doing when I heard the latest 'breaking news'. Being able to communicate with my friends (online and/or real life) through my blog is important to me.

4 calls in 2 and half hours
See what i resorted to?

Xuan Wu ~ Turtle
You are Xuan Wu!
Mythological background: Because the turtle has a
thick, solid shell that serves as protection -
this animal is associated with stability. You
enjoy intellectual pursuits. Also, in Feng Shui (the Chinese myths behind
choosing a house), the black turtle's solidity
is used to protect from cold northern winds.

Ok people

Approaching two hours and still haven't taken any more calls (yes still standing on three calls).

Give me something to write about or read.

I was thinking something along the lines of a silly-ish blog style quiz.

Anything really.
At work

Its been just over an hour. Taken three calls and one man called twice in a row.

Tomorrow i start my new crappy full time call centre job. Which means this week i will work seven days straight.

Actually i will probably work both jobs for a couple of weeks before quitting the weekend one.

The problem is this job (the weekend one) is with my wonderful friend Marisa (my boss) and most of the time it is just like hanging out together.

As for what the hell i am doing i have basically given up on getting a 'real job' and have decided that my two best options are a) go back to get my masters or Dip Ed or b) return to Hong Kong.

Happy CCC day.

( on this day several months ago i finally got together with Mr Chan after much and i mean much flirting with both of us taking forever to get up the nerve to do something about it). What does CCC stand for- well thats a secret!

My useless wheel. Posted by Hello
One bloody big hole! Posted by Hello
Last night after picking up my friend Dan from his place i drove around the corner over- (well in reality slightly in and out of) an exposed storm water drain opening (we are talking about a huge huge huge hole- one that i could quite easily fit inside). Needless to say it completely fucked up my car (yes profanity is neccesary sometimes). I now have two flat tires, dented wheel caps, and god knows what under-car damage. So I currently have no car and a waiting for a reply from my local council. You see the council was doing somesort of work and had put a large metal sheet over it and some hoon has managed to move it with her/her powerful car. Stupid idiots! It took two police oficers, my stepfather and a friend alot of effort to actually move the metal sheet back to where it was supposed to be covering it.

Why do i get the feeling that they will make me pay for it then tie everything up with paperwork before reinbursing me?

I'm still waiting for my refund from Cathay (apparently it takes 3 months).

Thankfully i did however get a refund on my two speeding fines yesterday. Looks like it will all be going to my car.
