A big call out to the nits who invented T*lstra and O*tus' phone tree hell! BASTARDS!!
I've also been frantically trying to build my skills in Dreamweaver, as we are re-inventing Triremis Pty Ltd (our corporate structure) into Triremis Pty Ltd Webdesign .
So much to learn, so little time.
I am over real estate. It has bled us dry.
I am even almost over the Dyepot I am so tired and depressed.
I love computers and helping people.
So, between The Darlinge and myself, a web design / hosting / general internet stuff business is launched.
Did you know that I spent over one hour and forty five minutes with a phone glued to my ear to try and get our fax working again and work out why I hadn't got the bill that they claimed they had sent in October? Then I get the wonderful (dripping with sarcasm) news that the fax number that we've had for five godamn years has to be changed due to O*tus having a snit. Bastards. Actually bastards one and all. I am so glad that I didn't send out my marketing letters today. 'Cause now we have to change the contact details. Bastards.
On a lighter note, I have to put this post through that thingie that jumbles up your words, just to see how many times " bastards" comes up and how big the font is.
That's it! Iz remebered
Yes, it IS the small things in life...
Waoooahhhh! There goes someone's mailbox!! Some of the local braincells have been blowing up people's mailboxes with incendiary devices made with commercial fireworks.
They're getting bolder - it's not even dark outside... Ha! Maybe we've lucked out and it's exploded when being made! Nah, I can't even wish that in jest. Wackaloons.
For your amusement:
I have been doing the Ciam Patternmaking Course for the past couple of months. I have enjoyed this immensely, but fear that I am far, far behind Zen and Moni (my partners in crime).
I am overjoyed to be finally able to draft my own fecking patterns, to MY measurements (as horrendous as those are at the moment) and can cheerfully bid farewell to 98% of commercial patterns! Huzzah! I do say 98%, because some of the costume patterns are far, far to complex for a beginner like me to draft. But shirts, jackets, coats, trousers, vests, dresses, dressing gowns, kimonos - Huzzah!
I have got to get the proverbial out and git sewing, as it's only a few weeks to ANDRE !! You cannot turn up to an ANDRE Reiu concert in tracky dacks. Well, you could, but I'd rather not.
I also have to do a complete 'going out to meet potential customers' gear. Eeeek
So much has happened since the last time I posted. Canberra Girls Grammar Fete has come and gone:
As you can see, The Darlinge was roped along to bring the kids, because I was busy running the beading and Sun Catcher painting part of Crafty Corner. Kidlets are busy having their photos taking whilst indulging in their favourite treat of the ubiquitous fairy floss (cotton candy for those of you across the pond).
Also, we went to the ACT cat show and fell in love with these gorgeous babies. Pleez can I haz one? (Ignore the wonderful cat equivalent of red eye):
Yiss. Maine Coons. I want a Maine Coon and an Oriental. I am super greedy!
Anyhoos, I will toddle off now and watch tonight's episode of "The Mentalist", which I lurve. After years of producing such donkey's bollocks of shows like "Ghost Whisperer" (blech) and Medium et al, at last we have a really good snappy show that calls out woo for what it is - woo.
I leave you with the most twee picture of my three reasons for living evva:
