Blueberry Muffins

I was intending to do my weekly update (as it's getting to be) last night after watching this weeks Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, but I got distracted talking to Stephen (paradigmshifty) and Kolya via Messenger.

Talking to them via Messenger is a bit odd at times, as they are usually sitting about two meters apart if they're both on. This means that I am talking to them individually, plus they are conversing in the real world at the other end, resulting in some very mixed up conversations.

One thing I forgot to mention last week was that on Sunday night Scott came over for a visit, and I got him to help me move some furniture. My intention was to move the bigger table out of the room next to the kitchen (I'm not sure if I'd call it a dinning room or not) and into the back end of the living room. and move the smaller table into that room.

Moving the big table out was easy. Moving the (supposedly) smaller table in was another matter. It wouldn't fit through the door. We tried every possibility we could think of, but apart from pulling something apart (table or door) it ain't going to work.

As a result both tables are in the living room, and the other room is without table.

Anyway, onto the week in review...

Queer Eye last night was great. All the Fab 5 fell in love with Cowboy John (as did I, yummy!) and since they new they couldn't have him, they ended up being bitchier than normal. "So, what's Tina got that any of the Fab 5 haven't goy? Apart from a working Vagina?" You could tell that John really wanted the make-over, and I think they did a wonderful job. Now why can't I find a man like that?

Not that much happened last week, except for a few major events.

First event was Weird Al in concert. Thank you very much to Stephen again for organising it. It was a blast. There were polka's, there was complicated songs (Why did you have to let me get so constipated...), there were costume changes between most songs, and more... However, while he was off getting changed the crowd was kept happy. There were two big screens above the stage with projectors pointing at them. During some of the songs these were showing parts of the video clips to the songs, during the polka they were showing the original video clip suitably sped up to match the polka speed. During the costume changes these showed clips from Al TV, bits and pieces from guest appearances he's made, and the like. Including some very dodgy "interviews" with Avrille Lavigne, Justin Timberlake, Celine Dion and Eminem. Great fun.

The support act before Al was some local comedian, no idea who. He was ok.

My only complaint about the entire show was that I was going deaf in one ear my the end of it, but well worth it at any rate.

Back was still playing up after the weekend in Toowoomba, so I was lacking on sleep most of the week, which made work stressful.

Now time to get my Muffins out of the oven.

I'm back. Muffins are now out of the oven.

A couple of weeks ago I decided to start baking things at home again (haven't for a while). Since I can't seem to find any of my recipes, I've had to made do with packet mixes until I do find them. Last time was Betty Crocker Triple Choc Muffins (choc muffins with milk and white choc chips). This time I decided to be a bit healthier and try White Wings Blueberry. Can't wait until they cool.

Wednesday I bought a ticket to the Live concert, December 12th. Should be good, as I haven't seen them in concert since 1997.

Apart from games night Wednesday, nothing else of importance happened except from my failed attempt to organize a Gold Class viewing of The Matrix: Revolutions for Friday the 7th of November. It seems that even though they've allowed people to buy regular tickets for sessions this far in advance, the Gold Class sessions won't go on sale until the Tuesday before hand.

So, if you are interested in joining me and about ten others so far for a Gold Class viewing on the evening of the 7th, you still have some time.

The only other thing of importance in the last week was Livid which I'll get to in a separate post.
