I can go to the ocean with a teaspoon or a bucket;
the choice is mine.

The infinite spirit is abundant, and will prosper me now.

Controversial Meme...ish

Stoled from gemfyre

[1] Would you do meth if it was legalized?

Probably not. I don't want to end up with a meth face.

[2] Abortion: for or against it?

100% pro-choice. << Me too

[3] Do you think the world would fail with a female president?

I think that a female president would be a great milestone for America, opening up for a more open-minded America.

[4] Do you believe in the death penalty?

I don't quite agree with the morality of killing people as a punishment for them perhaps killing others - it seems slightly hypocritical.

[5] Do you wish marijuana would be legalized already?

I think that a lot of people would appreciate it, however personally I don't see how it would affect me at all.

[6] Are you for or against premarital sex?

I don't really see the link between Sex & Marriage in a non-religious relationship.

[7] Do you believe in God?

Not really.

[8] Do you think same sex marriage should be legalized?


[9] Do you think it's wrong that so many Hispanics are illegally moving to the USA?

I'm very much in agreement with gemfyre here on this one. Immigrants need to wait their turn in queue and shouldn't be able to "cut the line" just because they were able to beat the system.

[10] A twelve year old girl has a baby, should she keep it?

As long as the girl has support from her parents and is well prepared, sure.

[11] Should the alcohol age be lowered to eighteen?

I think that in USA it should probably be lowered. That said, I'm against the idea of it being lowered below 18 in Australia.

[12] Should the war in Iraq be called off?

I'm very against the war. Absolutely it should be called off.

[13] Assisted suicide is illegal: do you agree?

I think that there are cases where euthanasia is a better option than watching people suffer.

[14] Do you believe in spanking your children?

My mother used to "spank" me and I think I turned out alright. As long as there isn't full on abuse a little hit never hurt anyone.

[15] Would you burn an American flag for a million dollars?

I'm pretty broke right now, so yes.

[16] Who do you think would make a better president? McCain or Obama?

Obama for sure.

[17] Are you afraid others will judge you from reading some of your answers?

Sure. Judge away.

always know the right thing to say

never be the face on your bedroom wall

This girl I used to know.. well, this girl who was a really good friend of mine.. One night, really really late, in like year 11, we were sitting around, we'd been drinking (atleast, I had been drinking).

We came up with this concept on how to make the world a better place. Well, in our drunken minds it seemed like it would...

We decided that the two most underused and most uplifting words you can use to describe someone were awesome, and amazing.

We decided that night that we'd try and use both words to describe one person a day; to their face, to a friend or colleague.. As long as one person was referred to with one of those words every day, it'd make someone feel warm and happy, atleast for a little while.

For a long time we'd have conversations over the phone over who we'd said it to; had we meant it; the reaction from the person; and how we felt after we'd said it. I think overwhelmingly it worked. For me atleast. Anyone I'd said to them was awesome, they smiled and it didn't really go away too quickly.

Amazing was always a word I held out on though - I didn't want to spoil it. I still found a use for it every day, which made me smile.

When we hit year 12, we sort of stopped talking as much. I continued to follow our 'plan' though, and really, I have to this day. Although I don't really use amazing much.

Incidentally, awesome has sort-of became a buzz word in the last few years, a lot of people are saying it. I could pretend that we had something to do with it. I'll never know if it's true though. I probably overuse the word now - I say it to nearly every person I talk to when something goes my way.

Moving on... I had a really, really bad day at work today.
Hectic, understaffed, busy, too much to do. Lots of things hit the fan, and everyone decided it was my fault. I drove home blaring All Fired Up in my car, which I always seem to do prior to a party or when I want to feel inspired [weird right?].

I remember thinking about those days, when something small like a few words could make me feel optimistic. It hasn't been like that in a while. I think I miss that feeling.

*sigh* okay, blurted. over it.
LJ, you are awesome.
Sam, I am amazing for making it through this day,
still hopeful.


so bored.

I'm reallly really bored :(

I keep thinking "WTF was I doing moving to Melbourne, think about what I could be doing back home".

But really, what would I be doing back home right now anyway?

Man, I need a life.

Can you feel it?

Can anyone name all the 'celebrities' (aka ex-idol stars) in this? I only really followed the first Idol series, but can recognise a few of the past winners and people who've released singles, etc.

It's kind of good though - I wonder if they'll release it on the next Idol album?

On that note, anyone want to put bets on Idol's chances of being canned like BB at the end of the year as well?


phone etiquette

I have this habit of answering my work phone "Hello, Sam's phone"

One of the guys in IT called today and he asked afterwards, "Why do you always answer your phone, 'Hello Sam's phone'?"
My answer: "Because I might have wanted to pretend Sam wasn't around depending on who you are."
