Kids, it's time for an announcement: I've found the cure for cancer. It was right here in my office fridge all along! It's sitting in all it's furry glory nestled betwixt an alien lifeform cunningly secreted within a gherkin dip container and a bottle of wart remover that was once, in days long past, called milk. Such wonders of biology and chemistry, and all in one 80x120x40cm chilled space!

There's a food out there that either I haven't discovered yet or hasn't been invented yet. Unfortunately, it's what I feel like right now. I'm really hungry (and tired and a bit sick) but there's nothing that I want to eat. Isn't that stupid?

What makes it even more stupid is that I'm pretty sure my tired and sick feelings would be alleviated at least somewhat if I nourished myself somehow but the fact I'm tired and sick is making me too [word like 'lazy' or 'ambivalent' which I can't think ...

It's my first day of uni -- first day of my last full-time semester. I had my first lecture before, for Business Policy and Strategy. The final exam for that subject is worth 70%. Talk about pressure! I'm not like my friends who take courses with names like Advanced Computer Nerdulance and Mysterious Coding Languages 1000 who elect to take their final exam as worth 100% of their mark. (Who then go on to fail the subject despite the fact that the are practically Mensa candidates, all bec...

I'm rather tired.

About half an hour ago I arrived home from our church's camp. T'was a very fun weekend, full of plenty of silliness and general mucking around. Lucky for you I'm not able to post the ridiculous videos we made over the past 24 hours, which consisted of an infomercial, a CSI-style show called "Grime Fighters" and a really uninspiring commando crawl impersonation. I don't know what it is about me but it seems like as soon as there's a video camera around I just start acting l...

One week and six days. That's how long it's been since I last blogged. Actually, when I put it like that it doesn't really sound like that long, but I feel like it's been ages! And it hasn't been for lack of wanting to either, but I've been trying to be a conscientious little study bug these past two weeks which for the most part precludes me from blogging.

But who am I apologising to anyway? The main person I blog for is myself (although I like to be entertaining, or at least diverting, to ...

*breathes long sigh of relief*

sometimes i'm frustrated with the inability of text to convey exact sounds. you have to compensate in other ways -- imaginitive spelling, describing actions in asterisks... but it's just not the same.

that sigh of relief above could be interpreted in any number of ways, but only one of them truly sums up how it sounds. that sigh of relief that you sigh (yes, sigh is one of those groovy dual-function words which are both nouns and verbs) when you have a prove...

Hey yo

It's another gorgeous night -- really, my whole life is pretty gorgeous. Sure its not always smooth sailing, it has its ups and downs, it's not a bed of roses (hands up if you hate cliches *thrusts both hands in the air... and a foot*) but on the whole it's great. I'm at work at the moment, doing some printing. In about five minutes when I'm finished I'm going to go home and eat food. I'm so blessed.

There's no real point to this entry... such is the beauty of blogging.

I currently have waves of relief washing over me. Sitting in my (increeeeedibly boring) lecture just before, I had the most horrible, creeping suspicion that I had already taken one of the subjects I am enrolled in this semester. If this were so, it would mean that, not only had *I* paid hundreds of dollars to take a subject I had already taken, but I would get no academic credit for it, I would have to take another subject to make up for it, my graduation may have been delayed, I had already su...

After the comments and discussion that resulted from my last article, I thought I would indulge my self-centredness and possibly at the same time shed some light upon who I am by writing an entry about... me. Not what happened to me today, not my recent gastronomic fetish, not even an expose on why Christian girls find it so easy to avoid having sex (but that is to come). About me.

Name: Tegan -- you can call me Teegs or Teegstar. I'm not putting my surname in because I don't think I could h...

Hey everyone

This is just a very short post basically to assure you that yes, I am still alive! Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond my control, I've actually been WORKING at work. Go figure. As a result I've been disturbingly productive, albeit suffering Strongbad and blogging withdrawal symptoms. My doctor tells me these will pass.

News from the past week or so: last night we went into the Valley to celebrate my sister turning 18. We listened to very funky jazz music, witnessed a figh...

Howdy y'all

Typing is a little uncomfortable at the moment as my hand is still feeling a little stiff from yesterday's guillotining exercise. It seems bizarre and stupid to me that I am whinging after two days of using a device that I'm sure some people use all and every day. I think there's something amiss in my technique. Hopefully I won't have too many opportunities to improve it in the future.

Today has been a cool day. I was concious when it began on the stroke of midnight as I went ...

Afternoon everybody

How are we all? I'm great. I'd all but given up on blogging but a kind comment from a friend the other day inspired me to come back and post once again. Here's hoping they live to regret their encouragement!

Things Tegan-way are going well. I'm now well and truly married and it is the funnest ever! Matthew and I are loving just hanging out with one another all the time. I can't give the institution enough praise. I'm telling all my single friends to go forth and get hit...

Sometimes you have to go out of your way to find something to chuckle about, other times life's quirky joys come to visit you in the comfort of your own office. This is one of the latter.

Some may argue the chief of fashion crimes is a visible panty line, others (such as my good friend Champas) cringe at the sight of a miniskirt paired with ugg boots.

For me, woman wearing an anklet under stockings gets me every time.

I think I work too much. I just sat down at the computer here at home on a Sunday afternoon, and instinctively went to open WinText, the program I write articles in at work. I've also noticed I reach to dial "0" to get an outside line when I go to make a phone call at home. And opening a magazine website or non-work email, I'm getting a compulsion to glance around and check if someone's watching. Weird.

I think I need to get a life.

Hi everyone

I kind of almost forgot this place existed... actually, I can't back that up, but it has been a while since a new blog graced the Teegstar homepage. Life's been busy, but cool, in case anyone's been wondering. But then I started this blog writing for myself, not others, and if I'm going to continue it I think I should maintain that attitude about it.

Today is Labour Day in Queensland. The day when lefties and unionists across the state unite and celebrate their right to good wo...
