Hi All,

So...I got the shock of my life this afternoon when I got a call from the hospital information desk asking me to go downstairs....so I went down...and was greeted by a florist who gave me these...

2 dozen red roses. I nearly died...we've only been on one date.

I am so flattered and shocked and suprised and quite possibly the luckiest girl in Newcastle tonight :)

Love Me :)

Choose five series (no peeking before you choose them), list them, and then answer the questions behind the cut.

1. Rush
2. All Saints
3. Sea Patrol
4. Blue Heelers
5. Rescue Special Ops

1. Which is your favorite series from your list?
Favourite...as in which is currently my favourite or which has been a favourite? haha. I loved All Saints for so many years, but these days I really love my Sea Patrol (esp seasons 1 and 2) and Rush (season 1)

2. If you were to pair two characters from 1 and 4, who would they be?
Ummmm hahaha I have no idea...Maggie and Lawson?? Ah I feel so wrong even suggesting that...How can Mags be with anyone other than PJ..

3. What is one thing you'd like to change about 3's plotline?
Ok. Well ET wouldn't have died. Nav, Buffer and Spider wouldn't be leaving. Nav and ET would have actually had some romantic scenes and maybe even shown a bit of the two of them actually hiding their relationship on board....

Yeah basically I would want more Nav and ET haha. And in lieu of that, Nav and Buffer. Oh and if they could work on their continuity that would be good too.

4. If both main characters of 2 and 5 were falling off a cliff, which one would you save?
Maggie. Terri and Mitch could die...happily haha.

5. Which event was the most horrible for you in 1?
Grace dying nearly killed me. I was really really not coping well at the time with anything, and her death was unexpected and I seriously took it so so hard. In fact, as lame as it sounds...I still miss her character. There was something about Claire Van Der Booms voice that just soothed me. No jokes...I possibly failed an exam the day after Grace died...I was on a HD average before it and ended up with a credit for the overall subject :P

6. Which is your least favorite character of 2?

7. If the antagonist of 3 were to rape the main character of 1, what would you do?
Walsman? haha. Or Gallagher...raping Grace? Or Josh...haha. Narh I would probably enjoy the storyline...the more drama the better.

8. What song reminds you of 5? don't know
None really. I don't even really like the show that much.

9. Of 1, 3, and 5, which is the easiest to think about?
Rush and Sea Patrol are usually somewhere in my thoughts.

10. Are the protagonists of 2 and 4 similar?
Ummm...they're both focused on emergency services :P

Well it's Australia Day on Monday and to celebrate we had a morning tea at work on Thursday where Brendan produced this quiz for us all. Some of you have probably seen it, but it is quite amusing if you haven't. (For the record, I'm actually allowed to stay in the country thanks to a few lucky guesses and a teeny tiny bit of collaboration with Bec.

Oh and for anyone who I may not have told, I'm having a BBQ tomorrow afternoon at my place. Starting about 6. Please feel free to come, bring your swimmers and something. plus drinkies. You and any friends are more than welcome.  I'm supplying snags, salad, Pavlova & lamingtons and I'll have chips and stuff and I think Shells bringing cheese so anything else is up to you. Please come. And bring people cause I wanna meet more people haha.

Woohoo for the first time in my life I am glad I have a brother (ok maybe not the first time since he's been ok in recent years..but still..pretty awesome). Steve just rang me...offering me the BIG W display christmas tree ($200 tree) with all decorations and lights for $70...

So now I have a tree but no house to put it in, but who really cares. I can set it up out here hehe.

YAY. Gotta go battle westfieldians for a park now. *le sigh*
