OK so before I get all sentamental about my LJ's 6th birthday, I will just write about what's been happening over the weekend.
But first of all, an article snagged from catdraco
about a return of HEY HEY IT'S SATURDAY!( Read more... )
Like Cat, i do have mixed feelings about this.
I thought the show was just fantastic! Love Love Loved it. It was so nice to be able to sit down with the family every saturday night, and be garanteed of entertainment for us all.
I was deeply saddened when I heard it was finishing up? Why must all good things come to an end? I thought. But over the years, i have realized just that; that all good things do have to come to an end, but in that way, other good things come.
Of course, I was extremely saddened when I heard there would be no more YOUNG TALENT TIME
at the end of the 80's, but, I had no choice but to get use to it.
And that's the thing. with both these examples, I did get use to them, and I think now, that if these shows were to come back, they would kind of be out of date.
I remember, "they" tried to bring that TV show BLIND DATE" back earlier this decade, but it totally didn't rate, so it went off again. But back in the 80's that, (formally Perfect Match) rated very well, and went on for ages.
It will be interesting though to see how "HEY HEY" goes.
Right, to my weekend. i did go out to timeout on friday with M, S and Jess. Man that restaurant is brilliant; absolutely wonderful food! We sat outside as there was no room inside, and, it was pretty cold, though fortunately not unbearable.
I really needed to get out and socialize; with the recent crap that's happened, I hadn't allowed myself to get out.
Saturday I went to singing.
Sunday I went to Ghinesh with M and new girlfriend J; was lovely to meet her; she's really nice!
I found out that sadly Jumbos (where I had my 30th) had been closed down. We were originally going to go there, and I was so saddened to hear it was no longer there, as their food was the bestest chinese food I've tasted! it was popular too, so who knows why it's gone.
OK, this day six years ago, I decided to make my life semi-public, (I say semi, because of course, while i put the day-to-day stuff in the public view, I still limit my private life to friends only, and even more these days, just for me.
Six years is a grand milestone in my opinion for one to keep an online blog, but while LJ is here, i intend to keep on using it. I do hope LJ is always around. I shudder to think of trying to archive this thing!
OK let's see; I've fallen in and out of love -- hmm let's count -- four and a half times, (the half refers to the situation now which is still not entirely over); had one little crush in between. -- I've learnt a lot about myself and other people since I began this LJ in 2003, but something I will never learn is why "love" makes life so difficult? Maybe one day I'll learn that it's not. .. ahem .. Oh, and let's not forget, i had a relationship that lasted over a freakin month! go me!
I've travelled; within the country twice, and over seas four times; landing myself in America once, the u.K three times, and Germany and Dubai once, (I never thought I'd wland myself in a non-English speaking country, but there ya go!)
I've learnt, well I learnt a while ago, that I looove travelling overseas on my own; it's awesome! and I want to try and do it about once a year.
Oh, apart from the ACB convention I went to in america, I went to my first BCA
convention last year; the state one, and this October, I will experience my first national one in Brisbane. -- I havve my flights organized for that and Cairnes by the way)!
Though I've had many LJ friends come and go over the past six years, many have also stuck with me, and hence, some pretty awesome long-life friendships have been formed.
I have 134 mutual friends on here now; the most I've ever had! I looove reading their lives too! I benefit a great deal from the sharing.
OK enough about all that.
Yes I guess I've changed for the better! I still adore my friends, on and off line! They're my rocks!
And, as I did when I started, I loooove LJ! it is my rock too! :)
Til Next time, RdFreak
