my god. ok so yesterday i went to a training session and we are about halfway through and there is an almighty smash outside (we we're all in the boardroom). now the training lady just held her head and said "ohhh that happens every other week..." and proceeded to blab on about it. I however sat there for a split second to hear her say that much and then i got up and ran down the stairs and out onto the road (i have huge ethical and moral issues with just not doing anything when i could be helping in that sort of situation). so i get out there and some jerk in a ute had run a stop sign and crashed into a relatively elderly woman (bout 50-60ish), though i must say that that road is a death trap, the stop signs are set too far back and people can not always see them.

anyway so the ute guy is out cursing at the front of his car and the woman is trying to get out of her car without much progress. meanwhile EVERYONE, and i mean the whole 6ish pedestrians and cafe-goers all are just sitting around gobsmacked rather than DOING something pro-active. anyway so i rush over and help the lady out, tell her my name and that i need to check her pulse (to see if she was about to go into shock or something worse) but she ended up being ok. i didnt wanna check the guy cos he seemed fine (his car had just gone straight through and smacked the front of her car, she on the other hand had spun around and was half on the kerb and half off by the end of it). so yeh, gave them both my details for insurance purposes in case they needed it and i went back into the office.

when i get back, the trainer lady sat there with this sort of angry look and said "where did YOU go???" and i said "i had to go see to the accident". she then started getting annoyed telling me if i wanted to go and see accidents i was a little weird and that i shouldnt be doing that if it happens again while working. i'm guessing she thought i said "i had to go and SEE the accident" rather than "i had to go and see TO the accident". anyway so i told her "you know, i am a first aider and it's my obligation to go and help in a traumatic event if i am in the vicinity no matter what i'm doing, and i will be rushing to anyone's aid who needs it" and then i sat down, meanwhile the rest of the trainees sat silent and she just looked at me and then proceeded with the training.

i dont know if it was the right thing to do to speak back or have such a firm tone, but i frankly dont care. i dont know i want to work for such a company where the people sit in their fancy boardroom while car accidents are happening outside and someone could be critically injured. ESPECIALLY if the useless pedestrians do absolutely nothing about it.

i think i am going to write to the local council in that area and make some noise about that intersection, because if it really does happen every other week, i dont know if i could end up sleeping at night after working there a while :S

hehehe ^_^

"vasse sign" by .wilkie on Flickr.

went to vasse felix today, was a really great trip! i went for work and so i was working a lot while i was there, but nonetheless, all the buildings were nice and the gardens as well. they even have fancy sculptures dotted in various places which probably cost and arm and a leg lol. and its surprising to see how close together all the wineries are down there!...i mean ino its wine country, but just over the road from vasse felix is juniper, and down the road are some other ones all next to each other. i thought they would have been more spaced out. *shrugs* but anyway yeh it was a great trip, i took a few other photos which you can see below.

and this is the creek that runs along vasse, and you can see some of the sculptures here, the yellow and grey one is called the doughnut (i think) and the wooden one behind is called the spider.

It's A Heartache - Bonnie Tyler

It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache

Hits you when it's too late
Hits you when you're down
It's a fool's game

Nothing but a fool's game
Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown.

It's a heartache

Nothing but a heartache.
Love her till your arms break

Then she lets you down.
It ain't right with love to share
When you find she doesn't care for you.
It ain't wise to need someone
As much as I depended on you.

It's a heartache
Nothing but a heartache

Hits you when it's too late
. . .

It ain't r'ight with love to share
. . .

Oh it's a heartache

Nothing but a heartache.
Love her till your arms break

Then she let's you down
It's a fool's game

Standing in the cold rain

Feeling like a clown.

It's a heartache
Love her till your arms break
Then she let's you down
It's a heartache
. . . i dont know what it is about thursdays, but yeh, thursday always seems to a be a shit day for me is what happened:

- go to an exam which i hadnt spent much time revising for. i think i did ok, but im not sure. maybe i will get a distinction.

- i drive into the city for some business, and am on a call to a friend who's ex boyfriend works at the shop their father owns, and being the slimy jerk that he is, is threatening to sue my friend's father (on what grounds i do not know -_-") or go to the tax department, if he does not get a pay rise. and he already gets paid ABOVE award rate. asshole....but yeh, she is crying a lot and i want to go console her, but the traffic is a bitch and she is working anyway, so i went to see her later in the arvo when it was quieter.

- anyway went into the city, did my thing and on the way out of the city, i'm driving down hay st, and king st is sposed to give way to me. but NO, some stupid italian guy in his stupid peugeot with his stupid friend, PULLS out in front of me. fucker. i slam my brakes on, and beep my horn and the fucker stopped as well and looks at me with a grimace. then i'm waiting for him to move and he keeps looking, so i motion to him to get the fuck out the way as well as yelling "get the FUCK out of the way" (cos i like helping people figure out what i'm thinking :)) and he KEEPS LOOKING! i stick my finger up, and then he moves his stupid ass. fucking hell.

- so anyway i get onto the freeway and 2 mins into the drive, some old woman starts coming into my side on the freeway and i have to plant my foot to save myself from the concrete barrier!

- so i get to uni, and there are heaps of cops around the engineering i go an ask one of them, and they inform me that a girl had killed herself last night by jumping from the engineering building. every window inside the engineering building facing the quadrangle where she died had been covered with brown paper, and there were high barriers to stop us getting close. from upstairs though the windows had not been covered and it was quite disgusting to see what the police were washing away. somebody had found her in the morning, and they were still trying to get rid of the..."residue" from the scene.

such a strange, wacky and very disheartening day for me. i feel so sad for the family for their loss of their daughter and i only hope that they can find it in themselves to not bury themselves in blame as they were probably the best parents to her.

we all carry something with us. of course, it's nice if we travel with someone who can help lighten the load. but usually it's just easier to drop what we've been carrying, so we can get home, that much sooner. assuming of course, there will be someone there to greet us, when we arrive.

why do we clutch at this baggage, even when we're desperate to move on?...because we all know there's a chance, we might let go too soon.

aww this is sweet

"Muffins" by tarotastic on Flickr.

well people. i got a court case tomorrow on JUST this topic. fucking police brutality, and while this is in the US, our police are no better here. following is a clip i shot myself at australia day this year, where a man is held down by THREE cops, and bashed in the face by a fourth one, who happens to be a senior sargent, and who now isnt a senior sargent (or anything for that matter) anymore.

hehehe this is classic

hehehe anyone with a programming background will get this one. here are some different hello world programs written from beginner to pro level :P

ok now here's something weird. my mother received a letter in the mail today that came in a hand addressed envelope from a company we hadn't heard of before. inside, is a document with a letter stapled to the front, telling us of fee changes for our account with them.

here are the weird things:

- the company is a financial services company we haven't heard of before
- at the very top is the date, which for some reason reads 25th of august. that is 3 months ago.
- at the top, my mother's name is written, but the name and address of my father's company underneath, where my mother has never worked. whats even a little stranger is the "GPO Box" bit was actually written with a lowercase (not small-caps) 'p' and 'o', so it read "Gpo Box"
- next to the address etc is my mother's birthdate and some weird 10 digit number handwritten, in a different handwriting to what was written on the front of the envelope
- the whole front cover letter that this is all written on, looks like it has been stapled, and then the staple has been picked out, and that had been done a few times.

very weird. we cant figure out what any of it means or what to do about it...

I WON I WON I WON ^_^ hehe in the sweepstakes at work we each got two horses picked out of a hat, i got railings and delta blues and i won first prize on the sweepstakes with delta blues!! :D

lol it's not really on drugs, but imagine if we put lulu on drugs :P...hey peter? can we try? lol...i wanna put tape on her again haha.
