1) Bring bottles of wine.
2) Make sure you have at least one other friend there who also drinks wine.
3) Make sure you start drinking early (this makes the baby games funnerer).
4) If you are playing a game where you have to wear pegs around your neck and not say the 'b' word (baby) because if you do say it you will lose a peg, it's most fun to go to the clothes line and pull off pegs to add to your collection. That way you will have A LOT more pegs than everyone else and you will win the game. P.S. No one seemed to notice that I had a ridiculous number of pegs hanging around my neck - more than the number of people actually at the shower (and they weren't even drinking!!!).
5) You might like to start your own game called 'drama' where you acuse a friend of not giving you their peg when they said 'baby' (even though they didn't) and when someone points out you just said the 'b' word tell them they cannot have your peg because the game is rigged! (In fact it is rigged by you.. cos you went to the clothes line earlier and added a few hundred pegs to your own collection but they don't know that).
6) Keep drinking wine.
That's how I survived my friend's baby shower.
P.S. Luckily my friend doens't use the internet.. otherwise I would have to give back the egg cup I won in that 'pegs around your neck' game!

It's a very easy read with short chapters and it's written in simple language because it's from the point of view of a child. The child has aspergers and a brilliant mind. There's a central story line where the child is investigating the murder of a dog in his street. But intertwined with the story are chapters about math, the universe, science, etc, which I found fascinating to read.
I thoroughly recommend this book. 5 gold stars!

Since I monitor my usage I asked for more credit before I ran out. No one did anything about it and a few days later I ran out. I've asked MANY times now for more credit and all I keep hearing is "oh yeah I forgot to reset it".
It is so frustrating to be at work without my sanity (AKA Internet!). Not to mention the fact that I also NEED the Internet for some of my work!

We also went for a walk to the springs, had lunch at the Boat House cafe on the Daylesford Lake and made it to the Dayelsford chocolate cafe!
Definitely a birthday experience I will remember! :)
Here's some photos from our trip:

A British company is offering to provide stab-proof school uniforms, lined with the same material used by soldiers. BladeRunner has added the Kevlar-lined uniforms to a range of clothing that includes knife-resistant hooded tops, T-shirts and gloves.
Today I couldn't believe my ears though when one woman who is hardly ever at work, because she's always on sick leave, was bragging loudly about the fact that she now qualifies for long service leave and is going to take it soon! She kept saying at the top of her voice "I'm filling out my long service form" and "I'm going on long service leave". Though I don't think anyone will notice any difference between her being on long service leave or not?! ;)

Firstly I saw "In the Company of Actors" which is an Australian documentary about the creation of theatre - from early rehearsals through to opening night in New York. It was interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes. The only problem with the film was that it left me wanting to actually go see the play!
Secondly I saw "Hana" which is a Japanese movie about a young man who is expected to avenge his father's death. I enjoyed this movie but it was very confusing. There were a few stories within the one movie and I found it hard to remember who was who and what they were doing!
Lastly I saw "The Armstrongs" which is a UK documentary about a couple who run a company but treat their staff appallingly. It was very funny! I can't believe that it's real?!

Anyway, the police said that they might have caught the guy who robbed us (while he was robbing someone else). Though they can't charge him with the robberies of our place cos they don't have enough evidence. I'm just hoping he goes to jail!

Last Sunday (29th July) I attended my cousin Andrew’s wedding. The ceremony and reception were intimate and incorporated some of Jenny’s Chinese traditions. It's the first wedding I've attended since Greg and I got married and it was great to experience a wedding with the knowledge of everything that goes on behind the scenes.

I've tried helping my workmates with positive advice. I've tried being positive. I've tried helping them with their problems. I even said one day "why don't you look for a new job if it's that bad here?" To which they replied "oh i'm too old to look for a new job. If I was your age I'd change jobs but I'm too old now".
I realise now that they just want to feel miserable and complain all the time. Maybe it's time to bring headphones to work. :)

Here's a dodgy photo of the menu (as proof) taken with my phone camera:
P.S. That's my drink of choice.. what does that say about me?

Though I think I've come to the conclusion that I prefer older art to modern art. Painting a canvas blue just doesn't seem like art to me! I love paintings that tell a story or are realistic.
However, having said that I did enjoy the Guggenheim Collection and think it's worth a look.

Definitely not a fun experience..

They took my work laptop (with all my work on it *sob*), my handbag (with wallet, phone, keys, etc) and a backpack full of work books. The thing I am most upset about is the laptop because I won't be able to get my work back.
We have to get our locks changed again because they have my house keys. And we also have to get my car locks changed because they have my car key.
But the worst thing for me is that they did it while we were sleeping.
It might be time to move.... Or to get a pet lion..

Afterwards we were offered free tickets to see Dave Bushell by the man himself. He said that there was a bar at the venue so we could enjoy a drink while watching his show. He also said that the bar was awesome. So we thought it would be fun to see a free comedy show with drink in hand. When we got to the venue the door man also mentioned how great the bar is. So by this stage I was expecting an awesome venue with an awesome bar. When we got to the bar we found it to be a table with one bottle each of red, white and bubbles and beer. hmm.. A table isn't a bar! As for the venue it was a art gallery. So by this stage we're thinking.. what did we get ourselves into? But we were there.. and the gig was free. So we got a couple of drinks and we were led downstairs into the basement. But the show actually turned out to be ok. It was slow to start but once he got going he was pretty funny.

I just wish that we could have stayed a little longer..

To celebrate we went away for the weekend to Gembrook - staying at Gembrook cottages - very romantic. :) And enjoyed a wonderful evening on Saturday at a restaurant called "Forest Edge" in the beautiful countryside with stunning views.

Today I arrived home from work and found our front door wide open!! At first I thought Greg must have left it open and I was worried our indoor cat might have escaped. But when I got closer I could see that the door had been kicked in!! I rushed inside to see what had been taken and at first I couldn't see anything missing. On closer inspection I found Greg's laptop missing. And later on we realised our digital camera was also taken. :( Which I am really annoyed about!!
Luckily nothing else was taken!! And our cat is safe and well!!
