Back Up The Moving Truck...
.. cos we're going places!!

I was alerted to some critical failures in Blogger's policing of their posting restriction policy by my dear friend Peri and it has made me reconsider my tenancy here.

For now, I'm moving to WordPress until I hear news to the contrary. Beanbags, coffee urn and scintillating chat can be found (well, two outta three anyway) at that address.

Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you at the new place!

All I Needed To Know In Life, I Learned From Shopping...
Get it now. Tomorrow it might be gone.
If it's on sale, you need it.
Never ask your mother her opinion.
You can always take it back.
You'll grow into it.
By the time you need it, you'll lose ten pounds.
Never believe anyone who says, "It's really you. If they're working
on commission, they're lying.
Know when to yell "Charge"
So many malls, so little time.
If you put it on your credit card, it's not really spending money.
Always try to spend someone else's money first.
There no such thing as compulsive shopping, just enthusiastic
shopping.
Shopping is patriotic. It's good for the economy.
If you've still got checks, there must be money in the account.
You can always get more credit.
If you want it, you deserve it.

When Mailboxes Explode
Coming this week to a station with nothing better to add to their programming lineup.. what we found in Kaf's mailbox today.

1. One payslip. The money's gone already, because payday was a week ago, but that's beside the point.
2. The Christchurch Star (free newspaper.. comes out a couple of times a week.)
3. K*Mart's "sale of the week" mailer
4. Bunnings Warehouse mailer (DIY & building/gardening/maintenance stuffs)
5. Noel Leeming mailer (whiteware, electronics)
6. Domino's coupons (pay extra for our Puffection pastry crust!! WTH?)
7. Powerstore mailer (more whiteware n electronic stuffs)
8. Bestbuys mailer (contains advertising for 15 different shops/services.. )
9. Farmers' mailer (department store)
10. The Christchurch Mail (community newspaper - once again, free, comes out once a week)
There's also a Pizza Hutt coupon book, and a Westfield Mall competition entry* near the pile, but I'm pretty sure that they arrived sometime over the weekend.

*shakes head* I thought we were trying to save and sustain the forests.. not shove them in people's mailboxes.

*all I have to do is spend $10 or more to go into a draw to win $5,000! Entries drawn weekly! Also, I could NOT spend $10+ and save that much. If I do that 500 times, I'll get my money back!

In Case You Were Worried..
I am now blatantly ripping off a feature of Bismuth's blog. I have a Terror Alert Status Bar on my blog.. >>> over there. If you're interested, you can find the code for it here or just click on the bar and it will take you to the website.
Good News.. Bad News
The good news first.. comments are back, as is the weather pixie and the stat counter (or they will be any moment now..)

Bad news.. I still can't get pretty blog pictures.. just standard templates, because when I try to change one thing, something else doesn't work. Then I fix that and there's something else. I think I'm broken.
I may be going to Hell for this..
.. but I'm takin' you all with me.. I'm gonna need the company...

Here's the joke. Now that I've hyped it, I hope it lives up to expectations.


Q: What did the deaf, dumb, blind boy get for Christmas?

(Scroll)







(Keep going..)






A: Leukemia.

*Bangs Head Repeatedly On Keyboard*
I now have "QWERTY" stamped in reverse on my forehead.

I now have a pretty header, but I don't think this will allow you to comment.. nor will it show my archives. I'm keeping on keeping on, though, because I firmly believe in masochism (in a non-sexual sense)

Update
This is not going well. It won't post the background picture (I do however, get photobucket links all over the show) and my stat counter doesn't work if the HTML isn't in the template. Therefore, I look like I have no friends. I'm so lucky I know that's not true..

Bck to the books.. I'll get this eventually!

Redecoration Time!
*throws ups some paint and new curtains*

I'm playing with templates for the next day or three.. seeing what appeals. So my linkity-links are gone and they're not coming back until I've finished with the cleanout!

*Slightly alarmed update* The move killed the HTML for WeatherPixie AND my ShinyStat counter!! That's okay, though.. I can find it again if I need it. ShinyStat had better still be counting though, cos I know you're out there...

PS - Frozen Double Choc-coated Chewy Fudge TimTams make just about anything better.
