    I know there's nothing that can be done, it was just really unexpected.

    Sorry to hear, Zoot. Hope you guys are getting some closure.

    On my end...got a text message saying my parents have split up. Also our rate of rent went up -just- enough that I can't actually pay for it each month at the moment. Really hope my group assessment on wednsday goes well...

    Text message? Couldn't they have told you or called? That really sucks though.

    At least they did, my parents didn't tell me they were splitting up. Mum just said we were living somewhere else and I kinda worked out for myself (being all of 7 at the time) that Dad wasn't living with us.

    Oh hell... that's bad news and a horrible way to share it I'm sorry... get yourself into Centrelink and see about getting some help (I think you said you weren't eligible before because your parents earned too much?) - see if this news changes things in any way.

    Hello fellow Aussies!

    It's been about 4 and a half years since I lurked/posted here (Dec '07), but since the recent kickstarter I thought I'd make a bit more of a contribution to the discussions again.

    Haven't read any of this thread yet, but its good to see that we are an active group on the forums at least.

    Be chatting soon!

    She left with her then-boss, now-husband. I was walking home from school, and she sent her secretary off to find me. She couldn't (not sure how, I was like a field away...), so Mum left.
    Still, at least she told my dad she was going. Her husband's then-wife had to call my dad to find out what was going on...

    Well, my Dad told me that she was gone when I got home, and we did talk about it at different times (although there was a fun bit where she said "we just didn't love each other anymore", and he said "that's bull-ess, I still love her" (that was with my older sister, not me)).

    As I said earlier I saw the Hunger Games last night.
    And it was certainly a good movie.

    The ending was a bit sad though.





    Edit: In much more recent news, my brother's girlfriend has decided we are having a feast this Easter.
    A feast.
    I can't eat as much as I could when I was younger!

    So, in other words, we are going to have leftovers for days.

    We used to get a lot more chocolate when were younger. We even had an Easter Egg hunt this year.
    But, we all got older and our grandparents moved away from their house in Woodford because maintaining it was too much work for them.

    But still, even a small amount of chocolate is good.
    And yesterday, we had a big roast with all the expected vegetables.
    It was delicious.

    Oh well, can't be helped. I got together with my family on the Thursday, which was really nice, and lost my voice and started coughing my guts up the next morning. Obviously that means someone cursed me

    I got lots of chocolate though, so I'm not sure whether to count this as a win or a loss?

    What would I do with two heavily armoured warriors?

    Anyway, I probably wouldn't be able to let you stay at my place.
    I know very little about you after all, and my parents would object if I agreed to let someone I've only met over the Internet stay at our house.

    Nice and quiet and spent mostly at home - with a few moments of stress thanks to the fact that I volunteered to lead worship on Sunday and somehow got roped into leading worship on Good Friday as well - by myself. There is something uniquely terrifying about being the only one with a microphone - and knowing if you screw up the song everyone will hear it.

    Ridiculous amount of chocolate though, thanks to a mother-in-law who tends to get a little excited over Easter. Seriously, my husband and I got a large chocolate Bilby each (which we ate before Easter ) a large egg each and a bag of mixed mini eggs. And that's not counting the eggs we bought each other...

    Because she lives in a region of high gravitational distortion where space bends in upon itself causing her to literally be behind herself?
    Places like that usually aren't on maps because cartographers can't agree how to mark them.
