The Return of the Nemesis!!

Forgive my brief hiatus. I had to get the hell away from the dreadful New York winter. It's still much too cool my comfort but at least the snow has gone. How I do despise winter!!!

I expect all of you want to hear about my adventures? Let me tell you, I still cannot get back into Australia! I was hoping to ramble around my old stomping ground, since it is late summer there right now. So, I instead went to Hawaii. It is quite nice but also expensive. I could retire away there, just sitting around, drinking margaritas and eating coconuts all day. But you know me, I'd be bored within the hour.

Back to the old grind of pestering Bobby! I read his latest posts and he is still wigging out. I think that's a good thing though. He's as crazy as I am! =)

Men See You As Choosy
Men notice you light years before you notice themYou take a selective approach to dating, and you can afford to be pickyYou aren't looking for a quick flirt - but a memorable encounterIt may take men a while to ask you out, but it's worth the wait
How Do Men See You?

Love makes the wildest spirit tame, and the tamest spirit wild.
What Love Quote Suits You?

You Are Bad Girl Sexy
Girl, you are nothing but trouble. And that's hot.You've got the classic bad girl sexiness mojo going on.And your badass attitude makes men fear you - and crave you.Don't give into people who say to tone it down. You're perfect as is.
What Kind of Sexy Are You?

Third Meeting...

Round three. I got out of this one by the skin of teeth. This time was more painful, on so many levels. Ella betrayed me and Bobby hurt me in ways he never had before. Again, I paid him back for the hurt he caused me in spades.

Notice my leaning away from Eames. I absolutely hate that woman! Bobby is annoying when he leans in my face but, Eames leaning in my face is just intolerable.

And that pink blazer. What the bloody hell was I thinking? I do not like that shade of blonde either.

Round Two...

These are from my second meeting with Bobby.

The first and second photos show my inablity to resist taunting him. I know I should regret doing so but, I don't. The third photo brings a smile to my face. I was waiting in anticipation for Bobby to meet Gavin. His reaction to him still makes me laugh, even to this day. The fourth photo is of me spiteing Bobby. He won that round that day but, I paid him back in spades later.

Note to self: That choice colour of lipstick does not suit you at all!!

The First Encounter...

These are from my first encounter with Bobby.

I hate the way he is looking at me in the first photo. He seen right through me before I even realized it. I particulary like the second photo. I gave him a well deserved taste of his own medicine. Though I wonder, where the hell that necklace I was wearing went to? I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Getting Closer...

These were taken just before you "met" me. This is the woman you have all come to know. Including the silly one of me on the floor trying to pose like a supermodel again. =)

A Few More

These two photos are after I cut the long hair off. It was a dramatic time for me, mentally and emotionally.

And no, I cannot explain what the hell I was attempting to do with that strange pose in the first photo either.

These are of me in my early twenties. I went through what you could call a "big hair" stage. This was right before I was in Thailand. Look closely. The girl in these photos is long gone.

To Start...

Me in my early teens. I had quite a flair for style then too, didn't I? =) I think I looked quite silly in the last two photos. This was at a better time in my life. Looking at these photos takes me back to a nice place, a place I've haven't been in quite a while.

Excuse My Vanity...

I don't think there are enough photos of me on these blogs.

I think I tell stories about myself using my photos. I think that would be fun. =)


Don't mind me. I'm curing insomnia by toying around with my blog. I hope my changes and additions are pleasing to my readers. =)

Now, if only I could figure out how the bloody hell to move my links and prolife back to the top of the page...

Computer Virus Warning!!!

I'm doing my good deed for the day and warning you all about a setrious computer virus!

Researchers Warn of File-Destroying Worm
By ANICK JESDANUN (AP Internet Writer)
From Associated Press

NEW YORK - If you have computer files you'd rather not lose, now is a good time to make sure your anti-virus software is up to date. A worm set to activate Friday will corrupt documents using the most common file types, including ".doc," ".pdf," and ".zip."

Hundreds of thousands of machines are believed to be infected, mostly in India, Peru, Turkey and Italy, said Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer for Finnish security company F-Secure Corp.

The worm, known as "CME-24," "BlackWorm," "Mywife.E" or a number of other monikers, even tries to disable anti-virus software that is out of date, he said.

Thus, users should make sure their software is turned on and has the latest definitions, generally available for free from the software vendor's Web site. F-Secure also has created a free removal tool.

"If you are infected, and you find out about it today, you still have time to get rid of the virus," Hypponen said.

As worms go, the spread of BlackWorm is relatively low. But worms these days are generally designed to help spammers and hackers carry out attacks, not to destroy files as this one does. So the impact this time may be more severe.

Microsoft Corp. issued an advisory Tuesday warning customers about the worm, which affects most versions of its Windows operating system.

Users should be safe if they have the latest anti-virus software or if their computers are set with limited privileges, a common setting in larger organizations. They are vulnerable if they, like many small business and home users, leave their computers set with full administrative rights.

And users should check the date on the computer. The worm hits the third of every month, so if the computer's local calendar settings are off, Hypponen said, files may be destroyed sooner or later, even if the computer is never turned on Friday.

A Nice Theme

She said I don't know if I've ever been good enough
I'm a little bit rusty, and I think my head is caving in
And I don't know if I've ever been really loved
By hand that's touched me, well
I feel like something's gonna give
And I'm a little bit angry, well

This ain't over, no not here, not while I still need you around
You don't owe me, we might change
Yeah we just might feel good

I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted, yeah I will, I will
Well I will

She said I don't know why you ever would lie to me
Like I'm a little untrusting when I think that the truth is gonna hurt ya
And I don't know why you couldn't just stay with me
You couldn't stand to be near me
When my face don't seem to want to shine 'cuz
It's a little bit dirty well

Don't just stand there, say nice things to me
I've been cheated I've been wronged you,
And you don't know me,
I can't change I won't do anything at all

I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted, I wanna take you for granted, yeah I will, I will
Well I will

Oh but don't bowl me over
Just wait a minute well it kinda fell apart, things get so crazy, crazy
Don't rush this baby, don't rush this baby, baby

I wanna push you around, well I will, well I will
I wanna push you down, well I will, well I will
I wanna take you for granted, yeah, yeah, yeah
I wanna take you, take you, yeah, well I will, I will, I will, I will
I will, I will, I will, Yeah, yeah, push you around,
I'll drag you down, I wanna push you around
Well I will

Can anyone say DUH?

Study: Pregnancy May Not Help Depression

By CARLA K. JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

CHICAGO - Pregnant women who stop taking antidepressants run a high risk of slipping back into depression, a study found, busting the myth that the surge of hormones during pregnancy keeps mothers-to-be happy and glowing.

The study offers new information but no clear answers for expectant mothers who must balance the risk of medications harming the fetus against the danger of untreated depression.

"It's important that patients not assume that the hormones of pregnancy are going to protect them from the types of problems they've had with mood previously," said study co-author Dr. Lee Cohen of Massachusetts General Hospital.

The study does not deal with postpartum depression — the depression that sets in after delivery, and is often blamed on hormonal changes. The research looks only at depression during pregnancy, a condition far less understood.

No one knows how many pregnant women are on antidepressants, but it is safe to say millions of women of childbearing age take them. Medco Health Solutions estimates 8.4 million American women ages 20 to 44 take antidepressants.

Other research has shown risks to the fetus, including possible heart defects, from antidepressant use during pregnancy.

Researchers followed 201 pregnant women with histories of major depression who were taking drugs such as Prozac, Zoloft, Effexor and Paxil.

Because of ethical concerns, the researchers did not randomly assign the women to either stop or continue medication. Instead, the women decided what to do, then researchers watched what happened.

Sixty-eight percent of those who stopped taking antidepressants slipped into depression. They were five times more likely to suffer a relapse than the women who continued on drugs.

But staying on antidepressants did not shield expectant mothers from depression entirely; 26 percent of those who continued drug treatment became depressed anyway.

Dr. Katherine Wisner of the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine said the study makes an important contribution by quantifying the risk of relapse. She was not involved in the study but does similar work.

"I was taught in my residency that women don't get depressed during pregnancy," said Wisner, who was a psychiatry resident in the early 1980s. But "I had patients who were depressed. I asked my supervisor, `You mean I'm really not seeing patients who are depressed?'"

The study appears in Wednesday's Journal of the American Medical Association' and was funded by the National Institute of Mental Health. Two of the co-authors declared in the paper that they have financial ties to several antidepressant manufacturers.

Other researchers have shown that antidepressant use during the last three months of pregnancy can make newborns jittery and irritable, and sometimes can cause them serious breathing problems. In addition, the Food and Drug Administration' has warned that Paxil may be linked to fetal heart defects when taken during the first three months of pregnancy.

Dr. Peter Kramer, author of "Listening to Prozac" and "Against Depression," said the study provides information that can help women and doctors decide what to do.

"Ideally, everyone would like to go through pregnancy off all medication," Kramer said. "But these are serious issues, and both decisions can be justified."

Kramer suggested some women might want to get off antidepressants but schedule more psychotherapy while pregnant.

A song for myself...

Somewhere between my sleep
Somewhere beneath my skin
In places I can’t see
Something is known to be a sin

Hiding inside my eyes
Burning from deep within
Something that needs a lie
Trying to turn into a sin

Rescue me before I lose control
Rescue me from this fire in my soul
There’s only you who can stop me from falling
I need a saviour, need my saviour

Rescue me before I lose my head
Rescue me from the sight of regret
Cause only you who can stop me from wanting
I need a saviour, you’re my saviour

Knocking behind my door
Asking to be let in
Something I have ignored
Wanting to be a sin

It’s been around for so long
And waiting to begin
I know that it’s so wrong
Can’t let it be a sin

A song for Bobby

This song is by an American 80's teen queen but I think it is quite fitting for Bobby right now.

Stand Your Ground
Everyone'll try to put you down
Everyone'll try to tell you no
If you've got a dream inside
You're the only one who can know
Don't let nobody own ya
Just say "One day I'll show ya"
Revenge'll sure feel nice
If inside you've paid the price -

You know it and you've gotta stand your ground
You've earned it - no one can cut you down
They'll try to get what they can
When you're strong, everyone's your friend
Guard the jewel you've found
You've gotta stand your ground
Come on everybody clap your hands
Doesn't it feel good to take a stand?
Music is my only release
Gotta fight for peace
Fight for the beat

Whether you want for yourself or for others
Stand up for your sisters and brothers
Just do what you wanna do
No one can say what's right for you
You know you feel helpless on your own
Swallow your pride - don't you go it alone
Don't you run away from what is right
Stand your ground - stay there and fight
The only police are in your mind
You gotta work - now work now double time'
Cause runnin' only lets 'em get the best of you
So stand your ground
Do watcha gotta do.....

Winter in New York

Sounds like a movie, doesn't it?

Well, it's not a movie; this is where I am stuck at right now. I love New York for various reasons but I loathe winter! I loathe being cold. Being cold makes me very cross. I am spending a small fortune on my heating bills! New York is expensive as it is but it is most expensive for me right now. And I am still freezing my ass off!

Anyway, I have a *big* confession!

I cannot cook! (Thought I was going to say something different, didn't you?) I've found out what virtually every other person Earth must know by now: cooking helps keep the home warm. I've also found I do* not* like to cook. I usually go out to eat or have someone cook for me but it's a bit hard to maintain anonymity and go out to eat every day in this city. Thank God for the frozen produce section in grocery stores! I still like to sneak out and have dinner out anyway. I could invite Bobby over to my flat for dinner but he would most likely show up with handcuffs and an army of cops. Men!!!! Actually, I don't think Bobby would want to eat my cooking. I don't even want to eat my cooking!!

I have found I do enjoy baking because it's not that difficult. However, this kind of food is fattening and I must watch my girlie figure! =) I have also found myself incredibly bored being cooped up in this flat. I have made myself familiar with various cleaning products. I have even met a nice couple: a mop and a broom! =)

The best thing about this city, hideous winters and all, is the shopping.

Speaking of shopping, I need to go shoe shopping. I broke the heel of my cream coloured Manolo Blahniks walking up the stairs to my flat.

Oh well, that can be my adventure for tomorrow. Right now, I'm off to finish that bottle of Cristal! =)


Not sure what the hell happened with my blog. Barek had the same problems but threatening murder helps get you back online. Maybve I should Barek some friendly advice? =)

I have much to tell you children! Prepare for a flurry of posts!!


Nicole to Blogger...Come in Blogger!!!
