I see a pattern

In approximately thirteen hours my aunt will come to my house and pick me up so I can look after her much better house and very close and alive pets for few days. Do you think I have cleaned my flat yet? Do you think I have packed?
Uh huh. No. I have, however, blog-stalked a whole bunch of people, missed a possible messenger conversation with someone who's only a couple of suburbs away and I should probably communicate with by phone or in person, watched some truly tragic TV including the OC which I haven't seen in an age [it's called good management; ironically the theme of this post] - guess what, no problems picking up the plot line there, I have done a stack of washing which is now sitting around waiting to be tidied/hidden away, yet again failed to pay my cunting mobile bill - they kindly sent me a text message to tell me when they'll cut me off, and I think I've eaten everything in the house.
I've also cleaned the toilet, which I'm quite proud of, and most of my mugs [not together]. I am getting worried that I won't get done all the stuff I planned to get done so I'm now crossing things off. My toenails can wait to be painted. Do I really need to visit the bookstore [yes, motherfucker, yes!!!!]? Should I leave my legs unshaven? I mean, there's a pool but only the cat and dogs to see... I was going to dust but by the time I get back things will just be dusty again so I might as well do it when I'm around to enjoy it. Damn, have I enough antihistamines? I'm actually a bit allergic to cats, possibly even dogs. What do I really need to take with me? [Guess who can't live without her computer for a few days?] Where is my swimsuit? Should I, perhaps, get up and, like, pack rather than just writing about it? Hmmmmm possibly.
So weird to have only a mobile for regular communication - I must go pay that bill.

Mobile paid, I rule the universe! Hey, wait, is that my credit card self-destructing? oh no.

i've done the same. i just don't see the point of paying for both a cell and home phone bill. the sad part is that the mobile folks have us by the balls. they're all the same.

have fun house sitting!

and i need to make a note to check your blog more often. i only check it when my blogroll marks you as "fresh!" and i always miss something....bloody technology. never works exactly as it's supposed to.

YES! Leave the legs unshaven- the dogs and cat will feel closer to you.

Leave it long and grow a leg-mullet.

Leg mullet in place.

My good news of the day is that I spent some time tanning my boobies. Oh my god yeah. I'd have done the job properly had it not been for the whole-houses-built-on-a-hill-oh-my-god-the-neighbours-from-all-sides-can-see-me thing. Bastards. So much for over-priced real estate.

A couple of other little thing, mabe even more than a couple...1] dogs are almost creepily weird [get the fuck off me, it's hot, it's weird, stop barking], 2] I am very allergic to the lot of them for a little while, 3] I had a swimming pool all to myself on a really quite warm day [ha ha suckers], 4] the sight of me in my swimsuit made that a very very good thing, 5] I'm actually quite bored - the big house is much lonlier than my flat. Woe me. Hmmmm bathtub...

Apparently house sitting is not without it's hazards eh?! lol

What with leg mullets (and frankly the notion just scares me), neurotic - but I NEED to love you - pets, pesky (peeky or pervy?) neighbours and a house that seems big enough to swallow your humble abode... hell - I don't know how you cope at all!

There IS the pool though... make yourself an island, and teach the dog to fetch you goodies - this MIGHT get you through your stay.

You POOR thing!

Those dogs are freakin' savages. The constant harrassment of other dogs makes walkies nightmare/fun/full of cries of 'oh for fuck's..', they damn near savaged a nice Thai delivery boy [fortunately he seemed to like dogs], and the little [and stupider] dog thinks waking me up at 4am barking at nothing is normal. I'm ready to throttle them. There's no teaching them anything either - I tried, they don't even fetch properly :(
Never again with the dogs! Argh!
Belongum, I had wondered why my aunt was being so nice when she was conning me for this - the crazy freakin animals are it - no wonder she was looking all pale and drawn before she went away...
*sigh* Really, I don't know how I've coped either :D - must be my good will and stamina or something...oh, and the pool...
