US Senator Diane Savino speaks on the Marriage Equality bill

Another absolute cracker of a speech.

I love the internet for allowing us to see and hear people like this speak in such a way to describe an idea and values that I’ll never be able to put into words.

Emma Watson Delivers Game-Changing Speech on Feminism for the U.N. | Vanity Fair

Emma Watson, absolutely amazing.

Beer has been drunk, dances have been danced and braids have been undone. 

Had an absolute ball at Melbourne Oktoberfest, and early plans may or may not have been made to return to Munich for celebrations next year. 

Good night!

Ok, the week is over and Oktoberfest has officially begun!!

I’ve had a day and a half at work today. Anyone who works in HR who follows me (looking at you jeremyrunblues ) and anyone else out there can probably relate.

I don’t want to hear any more whinging and whining when people get told off for doing the wrong thing!!! If you break the rules, that’s on you, not me! And as a HR manager, I don’t even make the rules. I don’t enforce them either, your manager does. I just give advice. Whether a manager follows that advice is up to them. So don’t even think about trying to make me the bad guy.

Oh, and I really don’t give a rats arse what you think of me: the only reason why I had a shit day is because you wasted my precious time on all this bullshit that I wouldn’t have had to do if you had just followed the damn rules in the first place.

I don’t normally post about work, but I hit my limit today. No more mr nice guy.

Now, it’s Friday night. I’m shaking the week off with a glass of wine, then I’m getting dressed up in a dirndl and celebrating Oktoberfest with a bunch of awesome people. Look out for drunken posts and pics later tonight.

Prost!!

Drunk women to blame for rape, survey says | SBS News

This makes me sick.


I’m ashamed of one in five of my fellow countrymen today.

Good news!!

Bloods are almost back to normal!

My surgeon says that the fatigue I’m feeling is normal and will probably last about six weeks, but with improvements along the way.

I slept well last night with the Xanax, I don’t want to make a habit of taking it but it’s so nice to feel more human today.

Working from home the rest of the day which will be nice and quiet so hopefully that will give me a bit of a recharge too.

More bloods in three weeks and another appointment in four weeks. Still not out of the woods but heading in the right direction!

I’m still not feeling right.

I’m exhausted. All. The. Time. Yet I can’t sleep. I wake up multiple times a night. And not just turn-over-check-the-clock-stare-into-space-fall-back-to-sleep awake, but completely waking up, going to the bathroom and having to relax all over again.

Melatonin isn’t working, so I’ve finally given in and taken half a Xanax to see if that helps.

Appointment with the surgeon tomorrow morning and the rest of the day working from home. Hopefully I get good blood rest results, he tells me that what I’m feeling is normal and I can just get on with things without worrying so much.
