An Ode to My Fish

Darling Jaws, so orange and fishy,
You were such a happy guy.
The nicest fish I've ever known,
Why did you have to die?

I went away on holidays,
It was only a week.
I left you with my sisters,
When I came home it was you i did seek.

Only to find you in a coma,
Lying on your side.
Your gills moving only a little,
Your little eyes gaping wide.

I didn't know what to do,
I quickly cleaned your bowl.
That did seem to help a bit,
But then you lost control.

"Come on Jaws!" I cried to him,
"You can do it if you try."
He looked at me so helplessly,
It made me want to cry.

I remember all the good times,
Of you talking to me.
You'd swim around and have such fun,
You were happy as can be. :-)

I only wanted you to swim around,
like you used to do.
In about an hours time,
Dad flushed you down the Loo.

I couldn't do it myself,
The thought of it made me queasy.
The thought of you being in my toilet,
Made me a little uneasy.

I do have one last hope for you,
All drains lead to the ocean.
At least that's what Finding Nemo said,
Nothing good rhymes with ocean.

So when I went to sleep last night,
I had a disturbing dream.
That I woke up this morning to find you,
Alive and well it would seem.

So I had some doubts,
If you were really dead.
But I swear you stopped breathing!
With your head on your watery bed.

So RIP my little Goldy,
I am very sure.
That you are swimming happily,
On Heavens distant shore.

Tired but Happy

Well...It's been a long, and really good week. My sister J and I went to Bourke, we went down on the bus on Tuesday, and were chauffered home by my brother at about 3:30 this morning. As you can imagine, my eyeballls do feel like they're about to fall out. So tired. I am very happy nonetheless. I stayed with my awesome friend, Georgie, who put up with with as much mess as 3 teenage girls can create. :-)
Swimming, watching the bbc series of Robin Hood, Fires, and not much sleep = awesome fun.
So yes my eyeballs DO eel like they're about to fall out and i have baggy eyes, and a week of school ahead of me. But it was so totally worth it.

I am Superwoman.
I went to the movies last night, I had no money. So i asked my parents if they would swap a job for some cash. They said yes.
So this morning, I mowed the grass.
All by myself.
I am so proud of me. I went out there, and i did it. I wore my old footy jumper, and I sweated and grunted, and the whole time I was thinking of how amazed I would be at myself when I had done it.
I did it.
I now fancy myself somewhere up there with Catwoman, Lara Croft, and Elastigirl.
You may now call me: "Super Thing", "Oh, Amazing One", "Awesome Girl", "Kid Dynamite", "Chocolate Thunder", or "Ben".

So for a major ego kick, mow your lawn.

Clash of the Titans was pretty good to. =)

Randomness on a Rainy Day

I love the rain.
I love the fact that when it rains there is new stuff to take photos of, and that it is just perfect for snuggling up and watching a movie. Popcorn, and hot drinks make for the perfect cold day. It's even better when it's school holidays. Blobbing like a blob is all I'm good for on days like these. It doesn't help that I was just at a camp over Easter, during which i got about eight hours sleep all w/e. I had a great time though. It's always awesome doing stuff with my youth group. Not having enough sleep won't kill me. But it might make me a little....stranger.
Like this random blog. I mean strange, right?
