< Misdirection >

Today I burned my fingers to distract my body from the discomfort and pain of the piercing I had yesterday! I didn't burn my fingers on purpose - but have just realised how effective it's been at distracting me from my ear! Yay.

Yesterday my friend Amiriche and I got ourselves pierced through the 'tragus' which was an interesting kind of fun-yet-painful experience. And now it's tickling my ear on the inside which is annoying hence why I'm lucky to be distracted by another pain source (the burn on my fingers.) I'm not looking forward to walking out into the 42 degree (Celcius!) day and having the burn hurt a lot more than now but a girl's gotta get home.

I don't have a photo yet - and all the one's I just googled are kinda scary. Yikes - there's a couple of YouTube clips showing someone getting theirs done! Glad I didn't know that before I went and did mine!

Amusing as sarcasm and irony are in conversation - it's more laugh out loud in writing. The "Blog" of "Unnecessay" Quotations proves this with winners like this:

Ah the sincerity!

Come AND hear AND see for myself!? Sure thing! Although can't you just borrow "any other film or book," and "the book of revelation" from the library without the "gratefully accepted donation"? Then you can be excited, alarmed and reassured from the safety of your own home..

So yesterday I covered jealousy - which in 'Seven Deadly Sins' language is Envy, and today boys-and-girls we're covering Gluttony.

Yes gluttony, and surprisingly enough we're turning the globe to a little continent called North America. Surprise!

Yesterday while browsing one of my usual haunts on the int0rweb, I found this recipe:

Baked Brie
"Brie wrapped in (puff) pastry and baked until it has thoroughly melted inside is one of the world's easiest yet tastiest appetizers. In this recipe the brie is topped with raspberry jam, surrounded with pastry and drizzled with maple syrup (and brown sugar- see link to recipe)."

Can be prepared in 30 minutes or less! Wow! Now, I don't know who thought of this originally but I'm amazed it could be classed 'appetizer' by any one, surely even a piece of this would satisfy most peoples whole fat/sugar RDI.

I know people (Franklin) who would probably eat this - but I can't even come at thinking about it - if I think about it too much I get ideas like 'people who eat this would probably add bacon to this recipe' *shudder*

One of the seven deadly sins...

Today I am back at work - like back at work with no holidays coming up and everyone 'getting back into gear', and whilst I'm being productive, I'm also thinking about my family and a whole bunch of my friends down at Wilson's Prom and I'll confess I'm jealous.


Even though I know this week is cold, rainy and probably crazy windy down on the beach - I would still rather be there now than here under the fluro lights listening to 3MP 'Easy listening' (I Will Always Love You) and looking at a very busy year in this job, if I make it past Feb without a nervous breakdown.

Being at Wilson's Prom in the rain, and the wind, and (next week) the sun and sand would be a lovely start to 2009. But instead, do you want to know how I began this year? In the toilet - right on '2... 1... Happy New Year!' I was peeing. I'm not sure I want to even theorise on what kind of sign that is for my 2009 ... nope, I really don't.
