i have had a lot of time to think lately, and a lot of time to do all the things i should have been doing the last few weeks, like cleaning. which made me think, i never used to be this messy.. sure the mess hasn’t piled up like when miss ashley was here, but i mean, some of the shit i’ve left laying around i wouldn’t have tolerated previously. they say people never change and this is true to the extent that the person at your core does not change,  but the bits people notice first, the extraneous stuff, are the bits that can change without you realising. i have come to think i have picked up some bad habits.

the fact that since ash left a few months back i pretty much haven’t cleaned a thing has also made me feel a little guilty, so i’ve been cleaning the last few days. a few loads of washing, cleaned the kitchen benches, thrown out the multitudes of sauces and spices sitting on the bench that are probably long past their used by date, floors swept, about to mop, bathroom is relatively clean.. trying to force myself back into that old groove of untidy yet clean.

i’ve also decided a while ago that i would like to make the interior of my house some kind of mix between modern and retro, i never really had an idea of what i wanted my house to become, but i think i have to get off my arse and make a move in this regard as well. after all, i have owned my house for around 5 years now and i have only painted the bedrooms before moving in. the lounge/kitchen is in desperate need of a tidy up and the outside needs a coat of paint.

so maybe this is all my new years resolution? i’ve never had one before, always thought it was a shit idea for people with no real drive in their life, no conviction for what they wanted to achieve. it’s just coincidence that i am having these thoughts the last few days or maybe weeks. how i’m going to make this retro modern mix work though i have no idea.

grandad popped in before to check how my friend bec was going, she’s in bundaberg amongst all the floods. grandad seems to think that the coming year is a year for change, a year for good luck, our family (i.e. mum, dad and us 3 boys) has always been surrounded by the number 11. now, i don’t believe in this numerology stuff for a second, but with the sadness and misfortune we’ve had over the last few years, i have wondered in the past if 11 was actually quite the opposite of good luck for us.

time will tell, but i do have a good feeling, and it all starts tonight. lets hope everything falls into place.

so i was looking at this website, and when you sign up an account, one of the mandatory questions is ‘do you do drugs?’ who is going to answer that question seriously? sure, here are all my details, my name, address and phone number and yes, yes i do drugs.. what kind? oh just a little bit of caffeine.. speaking of which, i got myself a few bottles of jolt cola yesterday.. but the citric acid.. my face.. grrr.. stupid citric acid intolerance thing.

i also must drink too much. one of the questions was ‘do you drink?’ also in the mandatory list. the options were

a) no never
b) socially
c) constantly (>3 times a week)

so i was thinking before, how awesome was alternative rock in the 90s? i mean seriously, i was seeing this girl when i was 16 and she listened to pop i suppose you’d call it – just whatever was played on b105, the local top40 commercial station. a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of triple j, and really, it’s what i should have been listening to all along.

when i was in america, driving from las vegas to the grand canyon in the corvette i hired, it had satellite radio. here we are in good old australia only just now getting digital radio, and i was listening to satellite. i was able to drive the whole way (about 300 miles each way) and listen to the same radio station without any interruptions. the station, lithium, played nothing but 90s alternative rock with no ads! by far the best time i had in america, cruising across the desert beating out all the tunes that pointed me in the direction i’ve taken.

so here’s some of my favourite alt rock tunes from the years that were the 90s.

radiohead – creep

smashing pumpkins – cherub rock

the severed heads – deads eyes opened

soundgarden – black hole sun

nine inch nails – closer

tripping daisy – i got a girl

of course, there are plenty of other totally awesome tunes from the 90s, but if i posted them all i’d be here all night!

its a shame its just a little too heavy to go out walking in right now. takkun is braving it sitting on the front patio, or at least he was for a while. suddenly the rain went from a light shower to torrential downpour and poor little takkun bolted inside as his chair got wet. he’s now sitting snug as a bug in a rug in the washing basket with my freshly washed clothes in it.. damn you taaacooo!!!! lol.

how is it that you more you think about things, the clearer they become, with everything fitting into place, but your thoughts may entirely incorrect and even though everything seems clear, the only thing you start to clearly believe is a lie? the powers of the brain (or lack there of) are truly amazing.

in the end, i suppose it doesn’t matter if you are right or wrong, as long as you get to the intended destination you seek with as little pain as possible, leaving what needs to be left behind and enjoying what is yet to come.

wow, thats deep man.

things are sometimes very obvious to me, they’re always the things that don’t really matter though,  answers to greater problems i have no control over, the reasons why people i don’t even know do the things that they do, and the things that make my stomach twist in knots and make me want to scream. i never do though, i sit here and do my thing, minding my own business and staying out of trouble. i’d like to say ‘fuck it all’ but i can’t.  i wonder if i should trust anyone to look after my cat. poor little guy. i’ll be in longreach for two days next week, i know its only two days, but no one actually lives here other than me anymore, so he’ll be by himself, my boy is the definition of a scaredy cat.

today, i was sitting on the toilet at work, i peered into my underpants and was reading the label, when i noticed that they have a serial number. seriously a serial number. i’m starting to wonder if there was some kind of warranty card that i’ve forgotten to send in so i can get them replaced just in case of a blowout. come to think of it though, they’re astro boy underpants, boxer short things. perhaps they had some kind of special function that i’ve never discovered? like ass rockets or some kind of device that miraculously makes women want to come home with me. if only!
