Well, Victoria finally flooded!

Somewhere in the CBD.

And that's the train station I usually go to in Narre Warren.

Doesn't look too bad - I'm pretty sure we've got no casualties - and it's definitely nowhere near what Queensland got. Still, the flood warnings have now justified themselves. The Bureau of Meteorology can give themselves a pat on the back, I guess.

*plays around with VicRoads and Metro to find out if she can actually get home today*

So I fed the dogs just now. I just gave them all that was left, and Mum told me off for giving too much. I rolled my eyes at her.

And then I called Minnie-Me and Kimba, and realized... I gave enough for them, plus Tubby's, plus extra because Tubby had a bottomless hole for a stomach.

And somehow, at the end of this all, I'll be okay. Some people in this world are complete douches and just need to die, but there are good people out there.

I'm watching Minnie-Me and Kimba sleep, and I keep looking over to the corner, hoping to see Tubby imitating a huge big fluffy pillow.

...we have a rug that looks like him that Mum bought as a joke last year, after he managed to get himself stuck under the stairs. I don't know if I'll be able to look at it for a while.

Blah blah blah, "it's a dog. Get the fuck over it, Elle".

These guys have been with me through thick and thin. They were the only things I could rely on during High School, and for a long time, the only ones I trusted. My little idiots.

I don't know what to do from here on out. I can't leave the dogs again, but I can't take them home with me, either. If the lease renews in April, then we can talk to the Landlord about allowing them or more likely just have them there anyway, because the Landlord never comes over. But April is still a fair while away. I can't live with Mum again - not when I've improved so much from who I used to be - but I don't know where else I can go. Angie and Scott have offered to let me stay with them, but they've got no room. I can't take the dogs to Nanna's and Grandpa's, because of the cat. Carmen and John might be a possibility, but I don't want to impose.

I'll have to make a decision tomorrow, after the vet. There's too much up in the air at the moment, so speculating is pointless.

...I just want a hug.

I can't tell if this dodgy Internet reception I'm getting is because Vodafone sucks, or if it's because something's happened to one of their lines. Boo.

Yikes. Y'know, I never thought Australia would be threatened by floods, of all things. I mean. Up until recently, we were stuck in a drought that lasted for twelve years.

Toowoomba (where Scott's family lives) was under water in ten minutes. No-one we know has died or gone missing from there yet, and even Gypsy (the dog) is safe. I think at last count, missing people was at 72 and confirmed dead were 8. (Edit: Radio just upped it to 10.)

Then the floods made their way through Brisbane, to Ipswich. One of my cousin's friends is now dead, along with countless others.

Flood waters are now on their merry way to Victoria. Right after getting that announcement on the radio, an ad for bushfire safety comes on.

...I think we're all more worried about the water than the fire at the moment, mate.

It's bloody scary stuff to hear about. Toowoomba (the first place to be affected) is on top of a freaking mountain. That means the top of a mountain got flooded. Whaaaaaaat the fark.

Apparently the highway leading into Toowoomba looks like a river now. Which is. whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat.

I've not got many Aussies on my LJ list, but to those of you out there, g'luck and keep safe. Maybe buy an inflatable boat or something.

...So it looks like something has been nomming away at the ball of my right foot.

I uh. Think I'm gonna go see the doctor now. o_O It's probably just really oddly patterned dry skin, but... it kinda looks like holes have been nommed through all three layers of my skin, in separate parts of the same area roughly the size of a 20-cent coin. Kind of disconcerting to look at.

I'm probably going to be told to start using a pumice stone. |D

Edit: Fungal infection. Apparently my leather work shoes don't breathe well enough in 40-degree heat; I'm sure everyone is surprised about that.

I have been instructed to make my foot smell like fish and chips by putting vinegar on it. Mum wants me to use kerosene instead. |D

"If you don't expect anything, you can't be disappointed."

Good to know it still holds true. |D

Vaguely amused at Christmas proceedings, rather more amused by the fact that the adults seems to have somehow gotten more presents than the kids (a sign that the older kids are earning too much money?), and entertained by my nephew stripping himself where he stood to change into the Buzz Lightyear pajamas he just received.

Merry Christmas, all. And to all, a very good night.

(Now hurry up New Year, so I have an excuse to drink away my memories of 2010.)

While I'm here, I may as well explain my conspicuous absence from the Internet.

So about three months ago, one of the housemates failed to pay their part of the phone bill on time. This led to our phone line being cut, and with it, our Internet. When we jumped through hoops to reconnect our phone, we were told that our Internet would only be reconnected if we paid a $99 fee and restarted our 12-month contract.

Considering the lease expires in June, no way are we going for the 12 months.

So since then, we've been waiting for a different housemate to cancel our goddamn account with Telstra so that I can set up a new one, and take the contract with me when I leave.

It's taking forever, as you can probably tell.

I've slowly been filling the void the Internet left with miscellaneous video games. Currently it's Kingdom Hearts: 35whatever Days/2. Before that, it was No More Hereos II. Both games are Stacy's, who is trying to fill her own Internet-void by buying box sets of random TV series. And a fucking Wii.

I shit you not, during her break at work one day, she decided she wanted a Wii. Since she didn't have time to get it herself, she sent me down to EB Games with about $400, and instructions to get a Wii, No More Heroes, and No More Heroes II.

She also sent me a txt message one day. "Just bought $400 worth of stuff from JB Hi-Fi. We're set for a month."

Girl is crazy, I swear. But I can't really blame her, with the bullcrap work is dishing her.

SO. That's my life update for this month. How are you all, Random People Still Reading This?

For those of you not in the know, I NEED A SKANK COSPLAY FOR ARMAGEDDON. I'm working the Critical Hit stall with Adele, who will be cosplaying Yoko. Since Armageddon is in about five days, it also needs to be something I can pull together easily. At the moment it's looking like Black Rock Shooter finally small breasts come in handy, but I'm looking for others, too.

This list made in honor of Isa.
