The Price of War
hehe this is funny as. We are being billed for all the bombs we dropped in Iraq in a war US started. I hope we get mates rates discount.
"The ADF will also be required to pay an undisclosed amount – believed to be up to $3 million – for satellite time and band width to connect the Canberra war room with command in the Gulf, and enable it to talk directly with SAS troops on the ground."
hahah more expensive than telstra :) You'd be like Commander, wait till after 9pm to call the troops and we get off peak special rates. Or just SMS the orders it's cheaper.
"They said some Hornets appeared to be fitted with AIM-120 Slammer air-to-air missiles, which have a list price of $586,000."
Wow half a mill per bomb. It's like the expensive dinner plates you never want to use.

Tuesday i woke up late and had no time to do anythign before jumping into taxi to make a meeting for work.
This meant now my "Poo Clock" is out of alignment. Needing "Home Base" to feel comfortable, control of ones "Poo Clock" is important. Timing it for the morning and after work means you never have to go at work or any public place.
Missing a morning session means your body now gets confused and throws it all out of sync.
Hopefully the weekend will allow me to set it straight. It's like walking around with a brick in your colon.

Working for your own business is like a drug. You become addicted. Days pass in a blur and you lose contact with your friends. Every waking moment you think about another hit and you'd do anythign to satisfy the crave.
I wouldn't sell my friends short or business partner (hey Rob) as business isnt a dangerous drug but like Rob said you start to develop a complex if you arent high
Clients become dealers who keep you regulary pumped and also help pay for your addiction.
It starts innocent enough a few days here and there normal hours. Maybe once ina while you do it on the weekends. Then its every night and spare moments on the weekend. You do an all nighter, thanks Kinkos for giving me the strength to stay up all night, and think it's the norm. The laptop becomes your drug bag thing (the ones that people have needles, spoons and stuff in) that you carry everywhere.
Unlike a drug addict your arm doesnt get tracks but you get sore fingers and strained eyes. You don't leave the house and eat around your addiction. You also lie to your friends about if you been working. Ahh nah man im just surfing the web. la de da :)
Friends try to ween you off the drug but nothing helps. You try to let people think you run a normal life but it's a shamn. You cant go a day without your hit of work.
I think i just get obsessed with things and dont want to see them fail. I left the Gold Coast in 1997 to study in Sydney when i was 17 and having no friends here found it really easy to stay up all night doing homework. Also unlike highschool the homework was fun and also i was good at it. While at highschool i was doing english assignments and Maths at college i was doing CD covers, mag layouts and logos. Having little money also helped keep the weekends free to work also. If i fucked up then my mum would have paid my student fee's for nothing. And not having loads of cash that would have been hard to justify. oh I studied in Sydney but now I work at Bunnings Warehouse.... Oh, Isle 3 for garden hoses.
Since starting a paper run in primary school there have only been two periods where i have been unemployed.
1: after I was fired from McDonalds for disobeince and before i started at Target (5 weeks)
Maybe if i got more (any) poontang in highschool i'd be alot different. Oh well. Hairy chests don't really get the ladies untill you get older i guess
well thats a random rant about me. Am i the only one obsessed with working?

What do people do when you earn over $200,000 a year. Every month would be like christmas.
Even if the company you run is going down the shitter, it seems the CEO is the last to get the chop. Probably because he/she is running the show.
I guess income tax is a bitch. 200k equals over 70k in income tax. Poor bastards but luckily high prixed lawyers can fix that. Or the property they buy means their expenses are so high they dont pay any.
So next time you see your CEO punch him in the nuts or twist her nipples. Or even better steal their wallet. They wont notice a thing. Also don't feel bad about stealing company property or pretendting your work laptop was stolen.

you know when you visit the ATM and you see left over receipts that peopel have left and you see what people have left in their accounts or they they didnt have the availiable funds to with draw $20.
On Friday in the city i saw one that caught my eye and it was a left over receipt for $71,001.46 left in their savings account. $71 grand in cash. Who has that much money lying around in a savings account? This person also felt no need to hide the receipt but to just drop it on the floor. La de da. Im guessing drug dealer, heir to a countries fortune or rich international student from Saudi Arabia.
Either way seems wierd that this person feels the need to have $71,000 on hand. Maybe in case of emergency boat pruchases :)

Whata week or so
Wow what a busy week or month. When was easter? Hey it was my birthday and I forgot.
Today I won a ticket to the Australian premier of the Matrix 2 at Fox!!!! But only 1 ticket which means i'll have no one to share my joy with and also i'll have to see the movie again with my friends no matter what. At least I can spoil it. Three cheers for entering competitions that just require you to email someone
Also it was my birthday on the 1st May. I'm 23 and still wearing the same clothes I wore in highschool. They still fit.
We (soapcreative)launched the Big Brother Desktop Alerts which was a very hectic 2.5 weeks. We had 18KG of M&M's delivered and I still have to send a share to the animator. I'm not sick form eating chocolate.
It was also easter which was nice of my mum (shit i forgot mothers day) to send me easter eggs and the LOTR books which my little sister has finished reading. The eggs all smashed and I was eating chocolate out of a post pack for a few days.
And thats about it. MY CD drive on my laptop doesnt owrk now and im too busy to be wothout it for a day or two. Ive discovered that I can make really nice chicken burgers from sotre baught patties and also that Dominos make nice pizzas as opposed to Pizza Hut and Pizza Haven.
Also i managed to go 3 weeks without fully shaving. By using my hair clippers on 0 it gives me perpetual 3 day growth. WOW interesting stuff
