Friday the 13th

I'm not superstitious about Friday the 13th, so I set out this morning to prove how great this day could be.  I had a nice walk to work this morning.  I did end up a pretty sweaty mess by the time I arrived at work, but there was a glorious breeze that always helps.  The high was only expected to reach 22 Celsius today, so I brought my blue jean jacket for lunchtime.  I stopped at Starbucks for my daily Venti Skinny Mocha (no whip) and decided to also splurge on a chocolate croissant.  They warmed it up at my request and I was on my way.

I got to work early... about 8:45am.  After mopping my brow I got my computer booted up and started the day while munching contentedly on my croissant.  Here's the view from my spot in the room:

At about 1pm, I decided that it was time for lunch.  I had planned to go to a Japanese Noodle shop, but when HWWNLBN couldn't meet me I decided to just go to Westpac for my usual lunch.  I went to Denlens and got my usual rotisserie chicken on a small roll with sweet chilli and a small order of hot chips with salt and ketchup.  Does it look tasty?  Because it always is.

Since I was alone, I found a quiet spot (yeah, right) and continued reading the second book in The Hunger Games trilogy.  I would really like to see the movie.  Hopefully we'll make it to a theatre someday.  I picked up some tic tacs and some gum and went back to the office.  At about 3:30pm, Shiplu asked me if I wanted to go for coffee.  Of course I want to go for coffee.  LOL!

We had a pretty busy afternoon and I left for the day a little after 6pm.  I've been wanting to get myself some stuff for the office.  Perhaps I should just be satisfied with what's provided, but you guys know me.  I like special pens and pink stuff.  I got myself a pink calculator, some pens, a couple of small pen-cups in pink and blue, some highlighters, some liquid paper, a ruler and what else?  Maybe that's it.  So when I go to pay for everything, the cashier asks if I want to buy a bag.  Not everyone does this.  Thank goodness I usually have my own bag.  Not that they charge a ton of money for the bags.  It's just the principle of it.  Why should I have to pay for a bag when I'm shopping with you?  Anyhoo, whatever.

I also made a stop at Priceline (think makeup and toiletries type of stuff).  I saw these hanging in the back and had to buy a bag:

It wasn't until I got them home that I realized the bag says that it's sugarless chocolate.  I'm not worried about the taste.  It's just that if you've ever eaten sugarless chocolate, usually the stuff they make it with gives you the runs.  It even says it on the back of the bag, "EXCESS CONSUMPTION MAY HAVE A LAXATIVE EFFECT."  If you are ever constipated, just pick up a few packs of sugarless chocolate.

So to end this post, here's what I saw on my walk home:

As I look left past the Opera House, you'll see that there is a cruise ship leaving Sydney.  Enjoy!
