the times are achanging

To quote Bob Dylan for my lastest blog.  The Times they are achanging.  have had a strange and difficult week in working with the restaurant and one i never really want to put in again ever. It wasn’t too bad but it was messy to say the least and at times working in the restaurant was like working with a difficult teenager who was sulking over not being allowed with its mates.


I have been doing split shifts which is to say the least a bit annoying and also a pain but the money is good.  The work wasn’t to bad it was just the company i have had to deal with.  I spend Saturday working the floor dealing with clients doing the bookings getting the whole place ready and my boss was really happy with that but of course there was a bitch to deal with.  It was like everything i did was wrong according to her and i just got so pissed off so i just got on with my own work. 


I have to say working in the resturant trade is like being in school with all the annoying clickly groups.  remember how the groups formed together like the most popular girls in school the geeks the freaks and the emos and the loners.  I just felt like the loner all weekend and to be honest with you it didn’t bother me at all.  At the end of the day i prefer sailing my own ship and being alone. 


I think i put in my worst shift monday double again and everyone was dying of hangovers and to make it worse not talking to me im just really thinking here i need a break and soon i mean if I’m working for a company in which i get no thanks i might have to go back to the drawing board and think about stuff.


I am going back to college friday to finish my computer degree and than i shall see whats the best thing to do.  I like the job I’m in but at the same time i really don’t need the hassle of idiots coming in dying of hangovers i mean Jesus i have been on the lash before but i always manage to come in do my work and not complain too much.


I think the reason i feel down is the fact that i was told over the restaurant quote unquote this restaurant has no future and I’m jumping ship.  This was said to me by a cocky chef and to be honest with you i don’t need to hear negativeBS from an idiot chef.

Anyway how are you guys all doing sorry foe being down so have anyone got any news themselves.

Hmm had a strange day here

Hi there blogger babes and dudes hope you are well and happy today and life is treating you good.  Hmm to say the least i had a strange day here and without knowing it i got insulted very badly.  yes poor old Vick’s insulted pushed around and nearly knocked down by a group of Little brats and oh yeah i was kept awake by the yappers from next door.  So tonight i will tell you all what happened and how by a good chance of meeting i got to meet a friend i haven’t seen in years so yippee i have a happy story for to nights blog.


So here we go so one and all gather round and i shall tell the tale of my sucky day and how it had a happy ending.  I didnt get much sleep last night due to the neighbours yappy dogs.  My neighbours have 3 of the paris hiltion rat dogs you know the ankle biters that bark just for the sake of barking.  Well the little feckers kept me up all last night by barking and i was in bed tossing and turning trying to block out the noise but alas no use.  So i ended up singing good charlotte songs to myself to try and sleep but that didnt work.  So i stormed out on bed in a temper went to the bathroom opened the window when i was about to scream when i heard a horriable voice going like this shussup lucey and go to bed. that was the dogs only by the way. So with that the dog stopped for the minute when the little shite started up again.  So i screamed at the top of my voice in the bathroom its fucking late and i want to go to sleep but i cant with the f*&^$^$^ dogs barking jesus christ if it doesnt stop there will be hell to pay.  To say the least the barking stopped i breathed a sigh of relief and went to my bed and back to sleep.


A few hours later mum came into my room shes like this i think i heard a witch screaming in the bathroom last night maybe i was dreaming this but i could be wrong.  So i got up and looking like the evil girl from the grudge with the long dark hair i hissed it was me and im sorry if i woke you up but you have no idea what its like not getting any sleep.  She was like ok but why dont you get the dogs sorted out and i said oh dont bloody tempt me i laughed back.  So with that we had a laugh i went back in for a nap and woke up a few hours later much better form to say the least.


I got up had a shower and got dressed.  I wore my black skinnies today i got them in sale last week and thought ah sure why not wear them today.  So i poured myself into my jeans and wore a nice tight black top i have to say i looked very pretty today.  So than i went on my travels than for the day.  I walked up main street bray feeling pretty confident me in my skinnies and freshlyironed hair and i was singing marc boland ride a white swan.  Its such a cool song and rob says when he listens to it it reminds him of me.  I think he means the reference black cat and tattoo on her arm.  Hmm so cool.  When all of a sudden this idiot girl comes up to me and says hello.  Oh hi i said OMGi have so many things to do today and i have to meet my friend cat for lunch than i have to collect my book from the library and than i have a chess date with my friend liam.  So while she was taking all this info into her tiny brain.  i was messing with my mobile texting rob when she said the following sentence to me.

OMG YOUR SO SKINNY HAVE YOU GOT AN EATING DISORDER. I dropped everything and said in a shocked but pissed off manner excuse me why would you say such a thing?  So she kept it up about my so called eating disorder your so skinny do you eat are you sure your eating and so on.  So when she kept going on about her little speech my heart just stopped there and than it was like time stood still.  I slowly snapped out of it and gave her a dagger look as in saying take it back or else.  So she kept it up going on and on when the mobile beeped. OMG im so late i said look i better go see you later and take care.  Make sure a truck doesnt meet your ugly head you idiot i muttered under my breath.

So i walked on up really pissed off and angry.  I stormed up the road hissing to myself how dare she insult me and she doesnt know me to judge me.  I nearly knocked down my friend liam while i was trying to calm down.  he was like are you ok dear no sadly not i said listen i will drop in later or tomorrow for our game of chess and you can fix my lamp.  So he was very nice about that.


But it dawned on me certain people not even complete strangers should never judge anyone on their appearance on their weight height religion or if they lead alternative lifestyle choices.  It really bugs me when people say things about my weight ok im a small girl but guess what i have a big appetite and im a girl who loves her food.  I know some people and have meet some people who are less fortunate about their body image and i think myself if people like that idiot saying a comment like that to me who can shake it off i would have no idea if she said the following comment to someone who did have such an illness.


The issue of weight is a thorny subject if anything and sometimes its a subject that i try and avoid at all times.  My advice i give to people who think that they might have a problem with their weight is to eat healthy get plenty of exercise and drink plenty of water.  I mean its just use your common sense and you will be fine.  I don’t and never have tired these celebrity diets coz i know they never work.  I did try the atkins diet once oh it was great eating lots of meat but no my health started to suffer.  My skin got bad my hair was greasy and i was a total bitch to be with and as for sex all ideas of romance went out the door.  This all took part in a week god help me if it lasted longer.

So i got that poison and negativity out of my system when i decided to treat myself yo a KFC i was hungry and it was my day to spludge so i walked in when i really nice bearded dude started to talk to me.  Ahh hiya you certainly look very well i was like thank you very much i started blushing as i waited in the queue.  I was trying to place him in my head and it was my friend carla it was her brother mark OMG such a small world.  So i grabbed my food and asked him if i could sit next to him.  He said certainly.  We spend ages chatting about everything and anything.  I told him that i was a blogger and proud of it and he was so encouraging so he gave me a positive feedback on my skills and he will be checking my pieces out from here on in.  So it was really nice to see and he looks good she told me he was in australia and he loved it.  i was like OMG i love australia i want to go there and he said you should go.  It was a great chance meeting and a great way to catch up with him.  If i could compare him to a he would like like the dude with the beard from the band INX. 

So yeah it was an ok day and he managed to save a pretty awful day and it was great seeing an old friend.  So guys and girls i am going to leave you with my favourite INX song never tear us apart.  Its such a beautiful song and it reminds me of michael in a way he was such a great talent from australia that was taken away from us to early i hope hes in a happier place so i will leave with this and enjoy.


Just remember one thing to all my fellow bloggers

the bebo and myspace addicts

Hmm i have decided to write this piece on my space and bebo because i have had first hand experience of what the bebo experience was like and whay i dont really have much time for it anymore i might give you the link to my bebo page at the end of this blog and you can tell me what you think again i dont use this account any more seeing as adult friend finder have hijacked my account i keep getting emails from so called sexy singles who want to hook me up.  Hmm yeah that what i was thinking i think not.

Ok guys and girls here we go certain names and locations have been changed for privacy reasons.


This is how my bebo affair started up burned well not so brightly made some really bad moves on me had its not so dirty way with me  and than dumped me on the side of the road like a piece of trash. My experince of bebo was like a dodgy one night stand that i dont ever care to remember ever again.


I had my two nephews must of last summer staying with me in my gaff and they were discussing bebo like it was the best thing since sliced bread.  Now i have never used bebo beofre ever i only heard about bebo through the newspapers and how bad it was and how it was rating teachers and slagging them off.  One other story was were there was a form of online bullying on the site and how the users would type up threats to its victims.  I politely asked the older fella what he was talking about and how its great.


I set up a bebo account for the simple reason of keeping an eye on the kids and nothing else.  I can actually you can become a bebo addict you always forever checking yoyr account seeing if your friends are online did you get any emails and did you get any loves.

The bebo thing in my house got pretty messy and at one point violent The youngest threw the eldest on the ground with a body slam move in which i got really scared i had to get rid of bebo well it was either that or be done for child abuse not funny at all ( i would have had the mother giving me a body slam herself so not nice).

I have to say bebo was for me a messy affair and a scary one at that.  I was only told recently that D once spend 8 hours on my PC doing bebo and to say the least i got a little scared with that and knowing the fact that he was on bebo for that amount of time.


So i deicded to cut the cord on bebo i took the broadband box out of my room and gave it to my other half.  When the other two farts when to go on line i left a note on the desk.  I had to get rid of internet was causing too much fights and with that i have decided to bring you guys out for dinner and we can than go to the pictures.  The youngest was ok about it he was like i would like to go to eddies rockets for dinner and i want to see the simpsons movie sure enough i said lets get changed and we will go to it. 

meanwhile the elderset threw a tantrum whay cant i go on the internet he screamed.  I was a bit alarmed to say the least i said well it caused too many fights and with that he called me all the bs and cs under the sun. Right keep it up D and you wont be going out with us i dont care i want bebo i was a bit alarmed and scared.  D i said in a calm voice relax take it easy we will go some where nice and forget about bebo.  To say the least it was a tense night with the boys.  i tried to make light minded conversation but all i got was devil stares.  I was a bitch witch horrable nasty person.


I rang himself the next day and told him what happned its sounds like they are addicted to bebo and they need to get of it so im like help me please.  So he did we gratually weaned them off bebo and to say the least it was a lesson to be learned.


I dont use bebo anymore because i dont have the time to do so 1 and 2 i dont know anyone on it.  Its going to be used for getting in contacts with friends from school and thats it.  I do have a linkin to my bebo page for hollyoaks and thats it really.  I am a self confessed hollyoaks fan i love that show so much so i dont want anyone holding that against me.


i will leave with this note though bebo and myspace are great for scouting new talent in the likely shape and form of lily allen katy perry mark ronson and the klaxtons yipee i totally love emo rockers that can do the brillent rock version of graces 90s hit its not over yet.  Please go over to youtube to check it out

feel free to check out my old bebo page

hail to the taxi drivers

yes sir ree these guys totally rock my world.  giving me lifts here and dropping me there and coming to recuse me everywhere hee hee am feeling a bit giddy tonight.  I had an early start this morning due to mum she had a doctors apointment so a really nice and new taxi driver came to pick us up this morning nice guys think hes in his 30s and was very chatty.  i had to explain to him about where i was going and bless him he had no clue so i had to give him directions so i was ok in giving him directions and he brought us to our destanation on time and i gave him a tip.  I always tip taxi drivers coz they are nice people and if you stay with a regular service they are always there for you which is great and a good sense of loyailty for both customer and taxi driver alike.


So when mum was done i ordered a taxi back and long behold tattoo taxi driver collects me hes so cool and he tattoos rock he has good and original taste when it comes to tatts and its good to meet someone who has a shared interest in tattoos like myself so its all good.  I have to say this bloke is not only good as his job and is also good at not saying to much when it comes to personal matters like my tatts i think my mum would go really mate if me and tattoo taxi driver started talking about tatts.  So he dropped us home safe i told him a not so funny about a certain person that was trying to break into my house.


The person in question who was trying to break in asked questions about security how many locks on the door why so many locks and so on.  Well i said that its for protection mainly.  So with that the guy said to me well if you lock her from the outside she has no way of getting out.  I looked at this person and said whats your point?  I was starting to get cross and with that your man scarpered up the road.  Oh my god i start to myself he was going to break in to my house rob my stuff and do other horrible nasty things I’m like my god you would rob off your own neighbour.  I haven’t seen that certain person since but I’m heard from a close source he was asking about my stuff in the house.  eg DVD player TV laptop mountain bike so to say the least i have upped the security more you may think I’m nuts but my family’s safety is more important to me than anything else in this life.

I have to say over the last few months with my mum getting sick and me going to the hospital a few times a day the taxi drivers have been great in more ways than one.  So i guess I’m writing this piece to say thanks to all the nice taxi drivers who bring me places that my little legs thanks mainly thanks to katy kins your sense of humour and ability to make me laugh out loud holds no ends and thanks for the good advice on the blog and other stuff.  Curly wurly you always seem to get your hands on good books and you always give mum great advice to mum about Nissan cars tattoo guy for the funny stories and your no non sense attitude to life but also i would like to thank you guys for your discretion Patience and for hooking me up with good tunes.  Oh yeah just to let you know im certainly not giving up my taxi service after all who else can bring me home of im weighted down with shopping or if i get a little tipsy on my JDs and cokes.  Or if im just feeling a little bit tired or if im too scared to walk home alone.

smashing pumpkins and Heath Ledger

So its getting late and i should be in my nest sleeping but i cant.  I have such a brilliant and cool CD Mellon collie and the infinite sadness by the smashing pumpkins.  This album is probably the best way to describe me in a nutshell.  Its good edgy angry lovable Quent and sometimes lost for words.


Currently listening to 1979 my favourite song by far its so cool its about young people going out having a laugh and not having care in the world. that the way that life should be lived and not having to worry about everyday things like where do i fit in this life do i need to get married and if i do will it be for love or just a social status thing.  Me personally if i ever get married it will be for love and even i reach the grand old age of 80 and i decide to do such thing i just hope my partner in crime will be there with me.


1979 has also some happy sad memories to it as well. It reminds me of my man heath ledger he was in such great films like 10 things i hate about you, broke back mountain, I’m not there and the last one he made sadly before he was taken away from us batman begins.  He plays the joker and hes really evil and sadistic.  I have seen a few interviews with heath ledger and i don’t know personally but he seemed like a really nice guy who enjoyed his privacy.  I have to say like many of his fans i took his death very badly and it still shakes me to the core just thinking about his passing on and how his little girl will never get to know her father who was such a gifted actor.  On my bebo page i put a few songs on it that remind me of him such as pink floyd smashing pumpkins he was truly a great actor and he will be truly missed by his fans and more importantly his family. 

I have to say one thing i really hate the Way that the press have made such a huge deal of what heath may have done in the past regarding his drug taking and so on and if anything we were all young once and in my case still young and we should never be ashamed of what mistakes that we have or have not done in the bad.


I will leave you with this final note guys if you have lived life without making any mistakes how are you suppose to learn lifes lessons.


Think about it.

Strange days and even stranger people

So guys and girls as you may or may not know i work in the restaurant trade and i have to say its a great job the money is good but sometimes the hours are unsocial-able which means i cant plain night out in advance or even have a life at that matter.  So i cant wait till September comes along and i can do part-time.  i have a few funny stories that have happened to me in the restaurant trade some are well funny so are sad and some are just plain weird but as promised i will change names and locations for the privacy of myself and other people.


I was working friday gone and to say the least it was a long hard day i was doing a double shift which meant i was on since 10 am till 11 pm which was a long day for me.  The day shift went well not too much trouble but when night came it was to say the least a barrel of laughs.  I had a few parties in the restaurant that night one being a big company of bankers that took over the bottom half of the restaurant if anything they were very nice to me and polite and friendly so it was nice have an easy table like that.  All the ladies were dressed very nice nice summer dresses and well the guys were in suits one or two were a bit boring but all the same a lovely table to have.


So as the evening went on the bankers were having a blast telling jokes eating good food and enjoying the wine this is great once they are happy I’m happy i said to myself as i dropped down a bottle of wine and a round of drinks to their table.  But here is the fly in the oniment a another party came in the door complete wannabe snobs ahem waitress as they looked me up and down while i walked over to them.  We have a table booked for 8 o clock under the name Mr smith.  Certainly no problem sir i said in a nice yet pissed off manner just one moment and i will check to see where the table is.  So i walked up to the matier D and asked them where he was intending on putting the snobs.  So the MD got the snobs and placed them on their table.


So they took off their coats and i walked over to them and being polite and oh so friendly said to them good evening may i get you a drink from the bar now the guys were nice and said can we have some beer and one lady wanted a glass of wine and that was fine but one meanie decided to wipe the smile off my face.  Oh waitress she said in a loud annoying voice have you got any bottled still water that is stored in the fridge at a certain temperature i said to her not unfortunately we don’t but we have sparkling water or we have chilled jugs of water.  So when i told her this she gave me a dirty look as in saying your an idiot.  Oh young lady she says to me like I’m a total idiot.  You cant expect me to drink dirty water is it clean i just looked back at her and said the water is cleaned and have been boiled and is fit for human consumption.  Tut tut she said to me while looking at me as if i was a peasant who’s only duty was to serve her and let her rest her foot on my spine.  I said to myself right ok I’m going to off load you to someone else.  So i did heads up guys i said in a quite voice there’s a meanie of table 10 and she will treat you like dirt.  So i spend the evening avoiding her and getting on with my own work.


I have to say i got a really nice bunch of people after my toffs incident really nice down to earth who are up for the craic and to mainly have a laugh.  It was 4 people 2 couples and the craic was 90 they had a great time and i won them over with my personality.  They took all my suggestions when it came to the main courses and of course they loved their desserts one especially being a man of course started to eat his wife’s dessert which my sticky toffee pudding that that was all good.

So i decided to leave early and one of the toffs got my attention and said to me in a quite manner of course please excuse my wife’s behaviour tonight she is how you say highly strung.  I smiled and said it was ok.  Even though i wanted to throw a pot of coffee over her oops oh my god im so sorry hee hee not.


But one thing has to be said in the restaurant trade and to this im quoting from the godfather films
