|11:03 pm - It is the Day of Australia|
Happy Australia Day!
No, that sounds stupid. What does one say on Australia Day? "Congratulations, some British bloke found our continent"?
I had to work today. *sulks* And we didn't even get a bonus of anything, which sucks like a mightily sucking thing. Not in the proper sense, anyway - I got some extra money, but that was only because my boss screwed up my pay for last week, and had to make up for it, which was pleasing.
I mean, yeah, the pay was still utter crap, but it's crap that I am capable of living on. At the moment, anyway. Once we work out the whole new place thing, that might change.
Still, despite the lack of bonus, today was a fairly good day at work. That said, this week has been a vast improvement on last week, really. Despite the awful heat.
Amusements included selling eight tickets to a guy with the surname Tennant. Sadly, his first name wasn't actually David, though.
No, I didn't pull out the page of the White Pages with all the Tennants on it so I could call them all. Really.
Oh, and there was this classic comment from some lady:
"No thank you, but thanks anyway. Thank you, goodbye!"
Tomorrow shall be our day of house-huntiness. This could be interesting...
Tomorrow shall be our day of house-huntiness
I shall bring my sharp pointed stick so that they can't wriggle free?
Projectile weapons might be more useful.
Congratulationss, some British bloke found our continent to you too! :)

There's a lad on one of our courses at work called Chris Eccleston - it caused great amusement to begin with.
I can imagine.
I dunno anyone like that, personally. No, wait... there was a girl called Holly Hunter on my bus in primary school.
