Happy deity-onna-stick-day...ish!
Crap, I can't remember what happened on what day, but happy... um... overall Easter, peeps! Been way too long since I attended Sunday School (I'm sure many of you would emphathetically agree.)

Joe and I are at his parents' farm for most of the long weekend. I got to ride on the ride-on mower. It died OF NATURAL CAUSES on my second lap of the paddock, confirming the effect I seem to have on all mechanical and electronic items. Luckily it was fixed and I'm torn between riding again (because it's ridiculously fun) or staying away so I don't poison it with my apparent anti-technology mutant ability.

We've been trying to fly this helicopter-kite thing I got off Ebay, but the wind has been peskily low, so instead we caught tadpoles (or more accurately, toadpoles) and other mysterious creatures from the Little Dam. Joe wants to go swimming in the Big Dam sometime this weekend, but family friends are rocking up sometime this afternoon, so another skinny dipping session is probably out of the question.

The boy is currently fixing his car, and I've been sitting out there with an investment property magazine, alternating between reading, watching him and having mechanic-themed daydreams. Mmmm... dressups...

I'm also really looking forward to sinking my teeth in at work next week! Astonishing, I know. I think I've been hungry for an artistic challenge and just not realised it...

Huh, the wind just picked up like whoa!

I hope everyone else is having an awesome break too. :)

Still a day before Easter for us here... but today's is me Dad's birthday, so it's a double whammy weekend, yup!

I think Friday was deity on a stick day, and Sunday is zombie Jesus day.

Theology isn't my strong suit either though.

Well, that title did take a moment to sink in, but thanks. Best laugh I've had all day. I'm getting woefully sacriligious of late. *shrugs* Ah, well. Happens to the best of us.

(Hmmm, why is it people become more fun as they get less religious? :p ...I won't start in on that one.)

It looks like I shall be taking that other journal down, and transferring my thoughts to this one... I have some interesting photos I need to figure out how to pull off my phone. Third world country dictators, anyone? Man, if only I had black market connections.

Mmm, wind. It's cold and windy here... I'm dying for April to get here. I want sunshine, dangit! I'm solar-powered!

Random Rhetorical Question of the Day: ...I don't suppose the job market in Aussie-land is any better than the States? I find myself suddenly rather jobless... :p Thankfully, the sense of humor remains intact.

Oh, and good luck with the mutant powers thing. Hmmm, how many computers did I "kill" off in my Freshman year? I sympathize. XD
