Secret #39I know this is really REALLY gross kinda, and this person is no where near my "style" - but I find paul robinson off neighbours really sexy. Only when it's not zoomed up on his face though, cos then all his wrinkles overpower his sexiness.

so why must i try? it's just people and leaves!This is going to be a super random post. Like really random, but I have a few things to say. i better make a list agin. that worked well for me last time, plus it adds as a bonus contents page for you people out there, so you can go straight to the paragraph that interests you. Altough some of these won't have paragraphs, they will just be dot points.

Freeing Excellence Affects RealityI love this song. No matter how many times I listen to it, it's just amazing. I'm talking about FEAR by Ian Brown. His accent, and the lyrics and the music, and the video! and WAH! It's Great.

they are comparing us to earthworms?I just read a fairly interesting article on living to the grand old age of 120. Apparently, scientists have "been able to predict the lifespan of the worm... by culturing them under identical environments and subjecting them to certain stress."

Me, Myself & II don't know why I keep a blog, whenever i hear that someone new has read it I go all read and embarrased. Maybe subconciously I want the world to know who I am. But on the test thing i am supposedly an extreme introvert.

i called my boss today! it was scaryI got the nicest and coolest review on stumble upon today. Some random said...
This girl likes cool things, which means that she is cool simply because of the things she likes. Also, word on the street has it that she single-handedly defeated Godzilla in a no-holds-barred game of Parcheesi, which makes her a-ok in my book.

failing miserablyNOOOO!!! my procrastination attempts are failing miserably, i just did a full hour of solid study! AHH!!! WHATS HAPPENING TO ME?
I Got TaggedTen years ago: Well, it was 1995 and I would have been in year 2 at school. Fun Stuff. My teacher was Ms Neal. A few years ago she married Mr Raudys. Hmmm. Anyway, I would have just gotten back from a trip to France and Japan - i spent something like 3 months overseas. In year 2 This would have been around the time that my best friend Charlotte brought her cousin to school for a week. Her cousin spoke no english and Charlotte didn't speak much French. So between my occassional "Je m'appelle Emma" and "Comment Ca-Va?" and "Frere Jaques, Frere Jaques - Dormez-Vous! Dormez-Vous!" I don't think the cousin girl had a very good time.
One year ago: Was year 11 and I was 16. I'd probably be getting pretty excited about the Canberra music trip at this time. Oh, and I would be also making frequentish visits to the Orthodontist as in August I got my beautiful braces.
Yesterday: Was Friday and I had a weird encounter with the police. I also had a job interview in the City and it was absolutely freezing. I had 4 free's at school, so I got to go home at 1pm and had a massive break for recess. From 10.15 to 11.40 - Lisa bought me a hot chocolate. Man I love her. She's brilliant.
Today: Got physically out of bed at 12.30 and went and found some food, then I did my daily rtual of checking emails, blog comments, other peoples blogs, stumble-upon friends, ben lee board and website maintenance. After all that I did some psychology - then tried to contact Polly after a chat with salona on the phone. Then more Pshych. Then I watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Yey! Sirius survived! Professor Lupin is my favourite character in the books, i can't wait until someone is finished the new one which came out today so I can read it.
Tomorrow: Is Sunday which usually means that I have to go and visit my Gram. But I'm probably going to a Sunk Loto/Behind Crimson Eyes/Karnivool gig in Bayswater or somewhere with Polly and Paul and others. Then Polly and I are going to steal a Hives poster from the Nepean Highway. Fun Stuff.
5 bands that I know the lyrics of most of their songs:

And I'll forget I ever lived in any other placeOk, so heres my 3rd Blog post today. As you can see, I'll do anything to procrastinate holiday homework. Angus just came around to give me the english work. He came to my door in socks and sandles. (NOOOOOOO!!!! one of my nails just chipped!!! I'll have to re-do it)
my bad!Ok, so I just remembered that Amy told me she opened her Tori Amos vinyl that was super rare (it was pink!) so that gave me automatic permission to open my Ben Lee puzzle. So i did. and i did the puzzle, and it was fun. I scanned a picture of the final image, but i realised its going to look really poor because its a picture of a puzzle that hasn't been made right. i mean... I made the puzzle right, but the picture that its of isn't right... hmmm, you'll just have to see.
dust floats through sun and waterI still have the green t-shirt you know, and the black jumper. The tracksuit pants couldn't be cleaned though.

crash your cool cars kid! watch the citizens all gather aroundHello all. I now have 3 (it should have been 4 grrr!) new bands to add to my "Bands I've seen, that are worth writing down" list.
Klaus "Hans" of GermanyI was just looking at my blog. (It's all I do) and I saw my Santa Claus post and it reminded me of my first true obsession/love of a real person (Michaelagelo of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles doesn't count). His name is Klaus. He was a german exchange student type person at the school I went to in France. As in... he was an equal of me, but from Germany.
"His name that we have given him is 'Hans'. No one else likes him. They all say he belongs to a farm, calculator or a pack of ferets. I have also been told that he looks like a homosexual, stoner, mole, toilet bowl and Hitler. (but that last person was just being mean)"The photo Alex took never worked out. Damn her and her fancy camera that obviously isn't that fancy!----------------------------------
"Today is Thursday and we get to go shopping in Les Sables d'Olonne!!! Yey!
Hans is sitting to my left :)
In Australia is hans a brand of ham?"----------------------------------
(at lunch one day)
"We all lined up and Klause was about 10 people infront. Has has a very good dress sense, good hair, walks well. Overall very well presented.
Lunch today was maccaroni and kebab things. It was ummm... good? or not.
Klause was sitting diagonaly to my right a few tables. He and his friends were sitting at the talble next to the exit. (The only exit!)
I wouldn't shut up about his every move so Camilla (who also liked him) and Polly got up (without my knowledge) and stood near his table. By this time I had been told what they were doing.
They went over to him and did as follows; Went to his table and asked if he was Klause. He did not speak much english so his friend translated. Polly and Mil then told him that I liked him. Meanwhile I am dying in my seat.
Then Klause goes (I did not find out until Pol & Cam came back) in his german accent, 'Oh! that is nice but... (I'm still dying) I love him!" And he puts his hand on his male friends shoulder.
Pol and Cam came back and told me. I died.
All the signs were there. People told me! His Clothes! His Hair!.
Je suis mort."----------------------------------
(At the soiree the night before we left the french school)
"The night went well, everyone sung their songs. The germans went overboard with their singing and playing instruments. they even had an accordian.
Klause was there and when we finished our songs he stood and clapped. Him and his partner were the only ones that did. V.Cute.
(edited part, just about brioche and my anorexia, macaroni and prawns.)
Everyoen was talking and taking photos. Klause was still there. It was v.uncomfortable for me.
I finally got my courage up to go talk and have a photo with him but I turned around and he was not there.
Dewberry broke a glass, and Paul talked to Polly a lot.
At last Alex dragged me and Paul over to Klause. Paul asked Klause if he could be in a photo with me. He agreed! (Yey! maybe he fancied Paul?)
After the photo I gave Paul and Alex a big hug to say thanks.
Klause was really nice."

My Mother is going Crazy - Part 2.Hmmm, so in my mothers recent new look on life she has decided to go out and sponsor a world vision child. Sure, this is the normal thing to do with all the recent publicity about "Make Poverty History" and Live8 and everything is it not? NOT FOR MY MOTHER!!!

Yeah... indeedwhat's up my G's?
This week shal officially been known as the week where Emma made contact with 2 of the boys on her marriage list.That reminds me, i'll need to post my marriage list. it's been sitting around for about 5 years now without publishing. Mind you, in year 7 where would i have published it? The school Newslink?
no way! they played it at your formal? That's big! I'm glad you are enjoying it - it was fun to make too.YEY!!! I am sooo loved this week! And did you know that Catch my Disease was the most played song on radio last week? Pretty funny eh!
I don't know when i'll be back in AU - i've got to sort out this american thing right now - but believe me, i'm dying to get back there - please don't let me forget it!
A CONNECTION IS MADEAhhh, i am so special! hahaha! Hmmm... i did have another reason for writing a blog entry today. maybe i'll remember later.
wow. i didnt quite realize the shock/horror that would be inspired by proof that i actually read your comments on this blog! of course i read them.
the way i look at my connection with my fans is that we have a karmic relationship. we are here to teach/learn from/inspire each other.
--------(edited the middle out)-----------anyway, as far as the blog and comments go, i very much follow my intuition as far as responding. if someone makes a comment/asks a question, im not going to respond unless i feel i have something valuable to add. theres no point typing just because i like the look of my own font (that sentence was a stretch but i think i made it work...).
so lets go forward. into the unknown. we are part of a grand experiment that has more potential than we can ever know.

"Hi, this is Gary! - Where the fucks bay street?"Ahhh, so after the excitement of this mornings blog post by Ben Lee, i am ready to go on with the return of Gary.
Fancy Hotel Bathrobes and FaithWowness. I am in utter shock.
FAITHInsightful stuff eh! BUT DID YOU SEE THE FIRST PARAGRAPH!?!?! Let me refresh your memory... "em raised an interesting point" - YEY!!! (that's ME!!!)
after my sweeping statement about the essential unity of all spiritual/religious beliefs, em raised an interesting point:
"But what about the religions that don't particually prey to a specific "god" or one at all?"
here is how i see it.
in ancient india, people worshipped a myriad of different gods. often these would be represented physically by an image or idol. some people would even see divinity in a stone, and dedicate their whole lives to that "stone". to them, that was god. yet there was a general harmony between people of the "hindu" faith - you wouldnt have in-fighting about which god, image or stone was a better representation of the divine! the point was, that it wasnt the particular "god" that was important, it was the faith evoked in the believer's devotion. it was the intensity of that faith that created peace in the life of the devotee.
i think we can learn a lot from this. in my opinion, no one in this world is a true atheist (not believing in anything). everybody believes in something. it can be god, money, surfing, music, relationships, knitting, thai food....whatever it is, everyone knows the feeling of faith and devotion. its this faith that will bring us peace. so even though one particular religion or practise might not acknowledge "god" in a literal sense, they still have an idea, or a ethical structure that they believe will bring them joy. this is their faith.
i dont sweat the details. when i meet somebody, the part of them that i really want to connect with is their faith. if they are an obsessive toy-train collector - thats what i want to hear them talk about! i want to witness the depth of their passion. i try to focus less on the object and more on the experience. every spiritual text is essentially a story of faith (and then surrender - but thats another blog entry), and the great spiritual minds of history all teach the same thing - that through finding your faith, you can move mountains.
on that note, im going to find some breakfast.
Monday, July 04, 2005Last night I had the weirdest dream! I can't remember much of it now, but it started like this...

"so i, i turn round, 'oh baby i don't care no more! i know this for sure, i'm walking out that door'"Hmmm... the Channel 9 telecast of Live 8 is about to start in a few seconds. 4 minutes to be precise. I hope they play Muse, Pink Floyd, Kyo, Travis, Placebo, The Cure, Audioslave, Tegan and Sara and The Stereophonics. Mmm... if they played all of them, i would be very happy indeed.

and i want a TV embrace - and i, i'm getting off your boiling plateWell, haven't I had an interesting day/night. Meh. Prefer not to disclose info about my night and morning... but today, I met with Amy and we went to Acland Street to go CD shopping. And oh my... I love Rare Records. I didn't buy any CD's, but I did hpwever buy the Ben Lee Jigsaw Puzzle i've been after for ages, and I also got a "Cigarettes Will Kill You" badge (it's the title of one of Ben's biggest songs - I'm not trying to make some sort of statement.) It's really hot. I'm going to wear it everywhere with my Ben Lee T-Shirt and ahh... yeah. So I'm happy with that.
