Pimpin' All Over The World....

Ah yes, not really!!!!

Hehehe, I knew that would get your attention. I will be going to Sri Lanka to plan my wedding (and Kasun's too) on the 7th Aug. I'm kind of looking forward to it, but I'm also a bit scared, because when I go it will be like "this is it!!!!" Ahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! I think I will be in for a big surprise and perhaps a few shocks as to what it takes to organise a wedding. So far, I have an exercise book which I have been slowly filling with my thoughts and ideas about what I want. I guess that's a start. It's a little hard when Kasun lives in Sydney too. My Dad will be coming with me and Kasun will be arriving a day after I do. So I will have support for when I start to stress/be unreasonable!!! Hehehe. I will accept any advice from anyone. Vids, do you have any tips?? I considered buying a book called 'How to Kill your Husband', but I guess you guys haven't got to that point yet!!! Hehehe, just kidding. Seriously, Vids, if you want to give me any tips that you found handy please do, I'm all ears!!!! How is everyone anyway?? I see that all is quiet on the blogging front. I have given up asking about the journal (BTW, where is it?????????????). I miss you all. Take good care.

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: The memories of my family outings are still a source of strength to me. I remember we'd all pile into the car - I forget what kind it was - and drive and drive. I'm not sure where we'd go, but I think there were some trees there. The smell of something was strong in the air as we played whatever sport we played. I remember a bigger, older guy we called "Dad." We'd eat some stuff, or not, and then I think we went home. I guess some things never leave you.

Things That Make You Go Hmmm..........

Hey There,

Ever realise that you are getting older each day?? No?? Well, I have come to that realisation!!! I think it always hits me at work, when people say "so, what are you doing on your week off??" I usually reply with "no plans really, just see what comes up."

Back in the days when I was a uni student, on my vacation, I would be doing something almost every day. I would definitely be clubbing every weekend. I would be going to dinners, friends houses, movies, etc, etc. But it seems that I have slowed down. I acually enjoy just doing nothing on the weekend and not having to worry about what to wear, how much money you will need, whether you would see any cute guys.........

Seriously, I also have been getting right back into older songs, such as the title of the post (song by C&C Music Factory). I love listening to songs from the 80's and 90's. Some of my favourites include 'All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You' by Heart, 'Anything' by 3T, 'Hook Me Up' by CDB, 'We Didn't Start The Fire' by Billy Joel, 'Nothing Compares 2 U' by Sinead O'Connor, 'Joyride' by Roxette, etc, etc.

I'm loving my sentimental moments when I remember singing/grooving to these songs as a young child. Who could forget 'You Can't Touch This' by MC Hammer??

Though I love today's music, I guess it doesn't have the quirkiness of the music from the 80's and 90's. Needless to say, I feel old saying that some of my favourite songs at the moment are not being played on Rage on the weekends.

Have a lovely day where ever you are, what ever you are doing!!!

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: What is it that makes a complete stranger dive into an icy river to save a solid gold baby? Maybe we'll never know.

"It Was All Yellow"

Just imagine me in a fluoro yellow T.shirt...........

That's what I was wearing at work all swing. On the back of my shirt was printed "Sri Lanka, Cricket World Cup 2007 Losers" and in a love heart underneath read "I love Shane Warne".

Actually I didn't mind the writing as much as the awful colour of the shirt. Absolutely hideous!!!!!!!! According to a lot of people I was a good sport about it, but I guess if I made a fuss about it things would have been worse!!!! I have to wear it next swing too, due to Sri Lanka losing twice!!!!!!

I have one question for you girls, where is the travelling journal????????????

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: When I was a kid my favorite relative was Uncle Caveman. After school we'd all go play in his cave, and every once in a while he would eat one of us. It wasn't until later that I found out that Uncle Caveman was a bear.

The Land Of The Lions

Need I say more?? My Mum got this picture sent to her and I thought it might be a good idea to draw your attention to Malinga's hair.

Have a nice weekend!!!

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: Laurie got offended that I used the word "puke." But to me, that's what her dinner tasted like.

The Sexiest Cricketer????

Okay, so while I will be wearing an awful shirt in a couple of weeks, for a couple of weeks, I will go on to direct your interest to the following article I found. This was taken from 'The International News' website. You too, might have a raised eyebrow.


Malinga named the ‘sexiest cricketer’

COLOMBO: Though Sri Lanka ended up as the runners-up in the just-concluded World Cup but their young and fashionable pacer Lasith Malinga has been named the ‘The Sexiest Men In Cricket’. Players like former Windies ODI team skipper Brian Lara, England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff, Australian pacer Shaun Tait, Windies opener Chris Gayle, England batsman Kevin Petersen, Kiwi spinner Daniel Vettori and South Africa pacer Makhaya Ntini were the other players in the race. The Easy Magazine of the Sunday Sun newspaper of Barbados conducted the contest to pick the ‘Sexiest Men in Cricket’. The magazine’s panel described Malinga as — “With his eye-catching, blond-streaked curly hairdo, eyebrow ring and tattooed biceps, the unique 23-old strikes ‘Easy’ as the type who would be up for anything... and anywhere.” “The Sri Lankans have brought life to this World Cup with their exuberant, joyful cricket and none more so than the wild child, ‘Malinga the Slinga’,” it said. Malinga, with his unorthodox slinging action, was one of the few youngsters who shone in the World Cup claiming 18 wickets at an average of 15.77 in the eight matches that he played in the tournament. His best performance came in a Super Eights match against South Africa in which he had a hat-trick and ended with four wickets in four balls as Sri Lanka almost pulled off an improbable victory.


So, there you go!!! I was a little ashamed of Malinga's hair, but if other people like it, that's a-okay with me!!!!

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: Sometimes when I feel like killing someone, I do a little trick to calm myself down. I'll go over to the persons house and ring the doorbell. When the person comes to the door, I'm gone, but you know what I've left on the porch? A jack-o-lantern with a knife stuck in the side of it's head with a note that says "You." After that I usually feel a lot better, and no harm done.

Put Your T.shirt Where Your Mouth Is!!

I lost a bet I held with a guy from work when Sri Lanka lost to Australia in the cricket. He and I have a healthy rivalry between us as to who is the better team. So, when he started to give me sh#%^ about the Sri Lankan cricket team I said to him "I bet they will win when they play against Australia". He said something along the lines of "no, they won't".

Me: "I hope they get a chance to play against each other".

Him: "Yeah, Australia will win, let's bet".

Me (getting annoyed): "Yeah, let's".

Him: "What do you like to drink".

(There is a custom at work that every stuff up you make ensures that you owe a carton).

Me: "No, let's make it more interesting than that, I'll think about what we should bet and let you know".

Him: "Okay".

I thought about what would be good, and decided that if Sri Lanka won, he would have to wear a Sri Lanka cricket team T.shirt for a whole swing at work (morning, evening, and in the lunch room). We agreed to this and he decided that if Australia win I would wear a T.shirt (which he would have to make) which said "Murali's a chucker" (or something equally as horrible), ie. "I love Shane Warne".

So, I'm kinda dreading going back to work to see this T.shirt.

Please, feel sorry for me.

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: Why do people in ship mutinies always ask for "better treatment"? I'd ask for a pinball machine, because with all that rocking back and forth you'd probably be able to get a lot of free games.

Oh My Goodness!!!

Well, suffice to say, the title of my post expresses quite well how I'm feeling on the eve of my 24th birthday............

24!!!!! Where have the years gone??

Gone are the carefree days of my youth, check out what I did today:

  • Woke up early and went to the doctor regarding pain in my fingers which I sustained at work.
  • Went to the physio to shed some light on the matter. He told me he would need to see me tomorrow also. "But it's my birthday tomorrow!!!" I said. He told me that they would have a cake for me.
  • I met up with Holly after that and we discussed our friend Roxanne's upcoming wedding, and also Holly's almost five year old son's antics.
  • I then shopped for a present for Natasha who will be leaving for a trip around Europe in 2 weeks.
  • I came home and had lunch (to save some money).
  • I washed my clothes.

I don't know if any of this is interesting, but I guess 'boring' goes hand in hand with being 'old'. That's how I'm feeling at the moment, old and boring. Whoever thought I'd be trying to get worker's compensation??

I hope I haven't depressed anybody.

Jack Handy Thought For The Day: I remember how the other kids used to say that old Mister Swenson was the meanest man in town. But I said I thought he was nice, that he just didn't know how to show it. The meanest man in town, I said, was the mean old guy who lived in the big white house. "THAT'S MISTER SWENSON," they said. Oh, my mistake.
