Take your dog for a walk too mate and when you run into her next time stop and ask her what sort of dog hers is. Or even just ask her that anyway - you probably won't need your dog but it gives you something else to chat about and break the ice.

People love talking about their pets, it's incredible.

I'm thinking I really need to be careful of the plane trees in the city centre. I walked up Swanston St a bit the other day and by the time I got to the shop I was going to I was sneezing and blowing my nose like mad. It's crazy - I never had hayfever before but I sure do nowadays.

Cold beer (or any beverage, I guess) when you're already freezing cold isn't the best idea...

I took Bella for a walk this morning but away from other dogs. She has a problem with her heart, she gets excited/nervous around dogs and that can make her faint so I try to keep her away from other dogs.

Not a good way to ask about licking an ice block. Should buy his own.

Is this because the workplace puts people into structured roles? Whereas a personal relationship is usually free-flowing and made up as it goes along?


Myself, I am self employed and my clients are businesses so I'm not really part of any one workplace so I can view them as an outsider and mostly I find them to be pretty brutal. I feel more comfortable relating to people on a personal level rather than a structured business level.


I've been toying recently with the idea of traditional employment again because I feel the need to do something totally different in my life and I look at these ads and they seem so unnecessarily stuffy, dry, and impersonal. I honestly don't know if I can do it lol.
Who are you thinking of? Not like there is a choice to not work unless you can live with your parents for free.

I find it much easier to deal with coworkers than to deal with clients. Coworkers I get to know and talk to them nearly everyday. I can speak casually with them and don't have to pretend to be professional and act like I know what I'm doing.

Don't you find it hard talking to clients and keeping them happy? Or especially the initial have to sell your services to them.

Women have been known to go a lot further than that in the US. It sometimes happens at the New Orleans Mardi Gras party.

Slept early, woke up during the night and couldn't get back to sleep. Figured to do all I was supposed to do when waking up at a normal hour (as a normal person would - not that I'd know.) Now just going to slug throughout the day more so than usual.

Heard some bad news today. The serial killer of many women who killed one of the women in my family breached his bail by travelling to where he shouldn't (near my family). He was captured and put in a cell. He supposedly was found dead the next morning.

Not sure what to say mate. How did that make you feel to hear that? I think I'd be glad he was gone if I'm honest.

I would handle something like that very badly if that happened to someone I cared about. I'm very sorry you had to go through that.
