Hey Ax, I've got a few more presents for you tonight, too.
National Public Toilet Map
Not sure what description interference will give that one, but it's... well, ... no one who's seen it understands why it exists. It's a laugh anyway. Any Aussies, open it and enjoy learn.

Goodnight Moon is a good start on Shivaree, too, if you're interested. Also a song called Bossa Nova.

Most people would never guess from my personality either. I'm a debater, I'm vocal and strong in my opinions, etc. But ... well, you know how most people are terrified of public speaking? Personally, I've no problems with debating in front of large audiences, I'm not even conscious of them, but if you asked me to mingle with said audience, I'd find an excuse to run the other way and hide in a library.

I've been trying to do something about this since things with my ex-girlfriend completely fell apart at the start of this year, and I think I've made some rather good progress. I've observed a few times that I find it hilarious that my greatest bout of posting online, i.e. in the Superthreads, has coincided with me having the most active offline social life I've ever had.

I guess I'm just relating this to say you're not alone at all, and amongst some people here who "get it".
I understand. I'm not too fond of public speaking either, though. I don't like to mingle with folks I don't recognize, either. Which leads to me hating going to public places (like the store or stupid shit like that) because I freak out, get nervous. Will make excuses and go hide. Maybe not in a library since the only one near here ain't within walking distance! But I'll find some corner or something!

I'm sorry that things didn't work out. But I am glad to hear that you are making progress!

Also Ax, you were doing much talking the night I saw you, not at all shy... whether this had anything to do with the wine, sir, or not, I'm not sure.
See, this is precisely why people don't think I'm shy. If I'm amongst people I know and like, you'd never guess. I mean, I already know Ali and U-Wen well in person, and I know you well on here. But say we were all just four uni students in a tutorial. I'd get down to the business of the tutorial, be all involved ... then not have a clue how to strike up a conversation with anybody and just sod off home instead. I do that all the time at uni, to the point that I haven't made a single friend in my classes. I guess I'm just not forward enough.

at the sir. Good memories.

You have no idea how much I appreciate this.

I love the Internet. I truly love the Internet. I cannot believe that exists!

And cool, will have a look around.

Yeah, I understand. I'm rather surprised I've made friends at Tafe, to some extent. But the first day I was there, someone actually came up to me and said "hey, I'm new here and don't know anyone, is it okay if we can be friends?". Yeah, cold came up to me and more or less said that. Of course, I was fine with this and we had a good conversation and even went for a drink afterwards. Maybe I was just desperate or something, but you'd be surprised, I imagine this works in other cases too. And even if you just sit around in a group you're somewhat familiar with, if there's a spare chair or whatever... they wouldn't be like highschool kids, they'd be friendly (unless they're complete idiots). You can start good friendships out of the simplest things.

That was different at school, though. It was hard to have anything in common with anyone there, and I sort of wish I could fuck up time a bit and say I went to a busier school instead.

That was a seriously funny night. I'll never forget the 'sir'... just wish the time didn't fly by so quickly.

Definitely does sound like our weather. I had Jury Duty two weeks ago and when I first went in, it was raining, chilly and nasty outside. When I got back out (4 hours later.), it was sunny, warm and nice outside. Then later that evening it stated storming. Fun stuff right there. Weather does fascinate me though, I like to sit and watch a storm (as long as the lightning and thunder isn't to severe! Then I go running for my life. ) and in general, it interests me how climates work. Maybe that's why I like The Day After Tomorrow so much.

That's how I get sometimes. I couldn't find my tv remote for the longest time and I didn't really care because really, what was it to get up, walk two feet and change the channel? But then one day I got all pissed off 'cause I couldn't find it, tore the room apart looking for it and straightened up the entire room. Takes next to nothing to make it look like I've gone through everything searching for something because usually, that's what happens!
Yes, everybody should know about Crowded House, and this is one point where my tastes actually align with those of many here. I'm not the only person from the Melburnian Interferencers group who saw them live last November! Ali, Jen, and Danny did too.

I tend to fairly closely follow the Bureau of Meteorology's readings here, though not tremendously in depth. I wouldn't say I'm that knowledgeable about weather systems or climates or anything, though I've some idea. Geography, after all, was "my" subject back in high school. I favoured social geography, but naturally matters of physical geography and weather systems came up in the course content too, and it's stuck with me.

For me, it's usually a specific form or document. I'll end up sorting things meticulously onto my bookshelves and into my filing cabinet ... then the next semester of university comes around, I raid my shelves while researching, and everything turns into a mess again!

Alrighty, my beloved potholes, I must sleep. I've got to pretend to be awake tomorrow to 'do things', like go to the bank and stuff. I'd send a postcard but...

Have a grand night/day/whatever it is for you where ever you are!
:zzz:

Night, Anna - have a good one, and thanks for that link, there. It'll be very useful indeed.

I will check them out the next time I get the chance.

Oh, I don't know a whole lot about it like, all nerdy or anything. But I know some stuff and it fascinates me a lot. The weather channel used to be what channel my tv would be on all the time. If it wasn't on one to let me play some kind of game of some sort! I am a gaming nerd too. Not so much these days but back in the day before I had internet, that's what I spent a lot of my time doing.
Back in school, my favourite subject was history. I liked Science alright until that Science teacher I mentioned. It was one of my best subjects but then I failed it a couple of times because of her.
I only had Geography in middle school and it took the place of history. We had geography one year, history the next. I really liked it but I didn't get enough time in there, I don't think, to really appreciate it.

That too! I've lost my ID several times (and as I type this...I'm not entirely sure where my ID is...I'm gonna need that on Sunday. ) and it results in my tearing apart of the room, then organising again. But the second I lose something is when it becomes a mes once more because ya move things around and stuff gets piled up.
