wisdom de Pete [Nov. 26th, 2006|12:08 pm]

Yesterday, as we discussed the prospect of New Zealand being overrun by Muslim fundamentalists and being turned into an Islamic state, Pete declared that this country could use a tightening up of the rules a bit. He then mused, and I quote:

"We are a bunch of fat, slovenly, sluts. With no respect for each other or environment".

Nice.

rich people and their helicopters [Oct. 18th, 2006|09:09 am]
vixnix the triumphant
Ooh I watched the first episode of the new season of Lost last night, it is so freakin' exciting.

Our new place is on a big hill with a great view of the sea and the South Island (on a clear, fine day - on a cloudy day we see dull coloured water and mist). Some parts of the section we're living on get all day sun I swear, it's incredible. Five minutes up the road there are donkeys and horses.

And up the road also, there is a rich FUCK who owns a HELICOPTER and helicopter pad. I have been informed by my kid brother's girlfriend, who grew up on this very street, that he owns, that's right, a logging company, makes his millions from cutting down trees and converting them into disposable products that end up in landfills and at the bottom of the ocean, wicking out the chemicals that treated them into the earth.

As if that weren't bad enough, this morning, said helicopter WOKE UP MY BABY!

My little baby brother's girlfriend is at film school and is making her first film soon. It's a short film and it's a horror, Pete and I play a murdered couple whose baby (Maxim) is abducted by the pscyho axe killer and trained to be his replacement. She wants my Dad to play the axe murderer, which of course I find hilarious. She also wants Pete and me to write a song for background/exit music. We might even get to use a real studio to record it.

we moved house! [Oct. 14th, 2006|11:49 am]

And had no internet for a week. It was ghastly. We no longer have a fixed IP address so we probably won't host our own website anymore, which is sad for me because we just had it working finally at the old place and I could FINALLY upload photos. Now I have to learn all about those free photohosting sites.

Maxim is responding horribly to the move, understandably. He is finding it hard to get to sleep and stay alseep which of course makes me the loveliest mother in the world when he's awake!!

He has been SCREAMING all week about one thing or another. I feel sorry for him, and I miss my happy wee baby (well, happier.

I have packed on about a million pounds in the last few months, it is truly disgusting. I have reverted back to old habits of stuffing myself into a blank delerium and collapsing into bed, and it's going to be a hard habit to break again. It almost makes me want to take up smoking again, but I wouldn't want to smell like a smoker again.

I've been stuck between housework, my tyrant toddler and his need for socialising and having a birthday party organised, and a website devoted to cloth diapers. I think I am officially a mother.

I sure am glad my grandmother went back to get her MA in linguistics at 50-something. It gives me hope that my personal life may yet be resurrected!!!

The good news (possibly) is that I have discovered you can freeze homemade cookie dough in little cylindrical logs and cut off slices to bake just like regular cookies. Amazing. I have "fresh baked" cookies nearly every day now. (This is also possibly bad news).

Maxim will copy sounds now, but only until I say "Can you say......mama?" at which point he either looks straight at me, says "dada!" and giggles, or pretends to suddenly become interested in something behind me. He's goddamn playing with my head!!

Toddlers are death!

revenge entry. [Jul. 3rd, 2006|10:29 pm]
vixnix the triumphant
Bastard, first Pete ruined my Lost high (we just watched Episode 22) by saying "you know, they're just making it up as they go along, so who cares.", and now he won't let me read ahead and troll through Lost theories.

Talk about totally crapifying my Lost experience, dude. Because I have soooooooooooo much other cool stuff going on in my life right now. I have no need for cheap tv thrills. Guess I'll just make up for it by going on a massive spending spree tomorrow, buying up cute pairs of shoes for my giant Samaon flipper feet. NOT.

Bastard.

(actually, there is Maxim, but he's alseep right now).

somebody pump my stomach already [Jul. 2nd, 2006|10:10 pm]

Pete and I have been eating like we're trying out for the sequel of Supersize Me. It's totally disgusting.

Now I'm craving something sweet while I hang out for the reruns of Arrested Development. I should be in bed, really. I'm far too tired to enjoy tv but stupid enough to hope that I will. Food like I have been eating this weekend will tend to stupefy the average human.

My deadjournal by the way, is here.

Bleuch, time for a cup of tea.

just shut up already [May. 30th, 2006|07:30 pm]

I think the smartest thing ever said was when Lara Flynn Boyle was asked whether she wanted to have children.

She said "I would rather drink bleach." Smart lady, that Lara Flynn Boyle.

force feeding [Mar. 28th, 2006|10:35 pm]
vixnix the triumphant
Ok, not quite, but I am almost forcing my baby to eat solid food. I feel a little bit harsh, but seriously he has to start eating some time. He's been gumming pieces of apple for so long now. At least a month. He'll scream at me when I'm eating one until I bite enough off of it so that he can wrap his fat marshmallow paw around it in a vice grip and ram it at his mouth. He's basically left with a core, which he proceeds to, like I say, ram at or into his mouth, in between trying to eat the stalk. Nice manners this kid has.

So I've been cutting him a quarter, coring and peeling it, and digging kinks into it with a knife so that it has finger holes like a bowling ball and he grabs at those with his little chubby fists and hungry wild eyes. But when I offer him anything that would be in anyway convenient for me, say, pureed food on a spoon, while he sits in his high chair, FORGEDDDABOUDDIT. His favourite trick, after flat out refusing, is blowing the food I do manage to get into his mouth when it's open for half a second, wide enough to accomodate a spoon, out back at me in a noisy disgusting food-spraying raspberry. Nice. I mean, I have to laugh.

But seriously. My friend's baby is 4 months old and eats WHOLE BANANAS at a time. Max will be eight months in a week or so and eats small chunks of apple that he swallows whole, when he doesn't choke on them and vomit them back up. Yes, go on, judge me for continuing to give him the apple. I am a terrible mother. YOU DO NOT LIVE WITH THIS BABY. He would break you too, into a million pieces that can no longer communicate with one another and have to function as a unit by trying just to move together in the same direction. He will BREAK you and you will GIVE HIM THE APPLE.

So I am trying to get more in. I know I should wait, but it's hard, having a cranky 10kg baby who won't eat more than 4 tbsp of raw apple in a day. If he's hungry why won't he just frickin EAT???

five weird things about me [Jan. 21st, 2006|10:07 pm]
vixnix the triumphant
I was tagged by dasein_plushie!

1. I love watching infomercials.
2. I love old, stale, chewy European style bread, and old, dry, chewy salami (they have to be ones without pork).
3. I don't trust people who don't like tomatoes.
4. I usually only listen to radio stations that play classical music.
5. I really wish I was Jewish and lived in New York.
