Just out of curiousity... Posted on Nov 04, 2006 at 05:07 AM
I'm kinda curious, I have seen blogs where people gush all over service men (in particular it seems) and women. Is this necessary?? Yes, I do support the Coalition Soldiers and I think they do an awesome job. But the gushing seems to get a little extreme sometimes. I have always spoken to the soldiers like people. Maybe I'm doing it wrong??
I'm Back!!! Posted on Oct 26, 2006 at 03:05 AM
You know, something occurred to me while I was away. Well, it started to occur to me on the trip over (boring as it was). If you know this is the last time you are going to spend with someone you adore, what would you do?? I fantasized about the romantic things we would do and for the most part did. But as time crept by it got harder and harder to stay positive and I kept trying to remember if there was anything I wanted to say or to just make one more memory. I don't think it is every really what you think it will be, the way you build it up in your mind. But in hindsight it was pretty damm close to perfect, the anxiety I was feeling came from thoughts of it not being enough to hold on to on those lonely nights ahead. (Oh, and here's a pic of the beach down there)

Ok, more Aussie_Chic dribble Posted on Sep 22, 2006 at 07:11 PM
I keep seeing should I trust, why doesn't he, why do they, why do we... Is it possible we are being to critical?? I really think when you meet someone you need to really look at them and see what is there. Don't see what is passable that you could change, to look at the person like a house ready to be renovated to suit you... Look at them. See them. There's a bloody good chance they are exactly who they want to be and will not appreciate you trying to change them. If you are suspicious of them, don't be there. Nobody needs to be in a situation where they are always wondering and can't relax. And it's not real nice to know the person you are with doesn't trust you. I have a 'friend' who is constantly picking at the rest of us about our guys. Too short, to fat, to ugly. Somehow this girl snagged a great guy that she is doing the whole make over thing on (she has way to much time on her hands and watches way to much Lifestyle Channel). It has got to the stage where we refuse to introduce her to our guys and actually exclude her for social outings so we don't have to put up with the critisizing. I think if we all relax, enjoy a persons company and accept that as much as we want it they may not be 'the one' we might all get a little further in our quests for happiness. Who knows
Nope, romance isn't outdated!! Posted on Sep 11, 2006 at 05:05 AM
I just got back from a weekend in Sydney with a guy and yes, I can assure you romance is NOT outdated!! He is amazing, proud, strong and very much the gentleman. He has a character I have not seen in a guy for a long time and thought maybe I would never see again. So for all those girls looking - Yes, they are out there. Keep the Faith!!
My tunes Posted on Sep 05, 2006 at 02:07 AM
I remember Dead_Red blogging about mood music, but to be honest really couldn't be bothered looking for the blog so... I hadn't listened to these two songs for a while, but there are some things going on at the moment that made me think of them so I put the CD on. Lighthouse by the Waifs reminds me of a friend who is my rock. She is my Angel, always there when I need her. The Haircut, also by the Waifs is a song she gave me one day to rid me of the break up blues. And it worked, trust me!! If you get a chance, look them up. Some great Aussie tunes.
Happy blogs?? Anybody?? Posted on Aug 29, 2006 at 10:10 PM
Ok gang, I am finding the blogs are getting more and more intense and basically just making my head hurt. Now Sarahs blog that went on forever was fun and light and kept moving. Lately there has been so much doom and gloom and it's all been so serious. So let's have some fun, share a silly story, or your most embarassing moment, or tell us about the stupid stuff you do when you're drunk (I have LOADS of these stories!!). Let's lighten up!!
Calling all Angels...... Posted on Aug 13, 2006 at 11:32 PM
Can anyone who has signed up please let me know!! I am just wondering how many followed through.
Tanker Brothers Rolling Victory Fast Posted on Aug 11, 2006 at 07:03 AM
Ok, I am about to start my day on the roster for the Tanker Brothers Rolling Victory Fast. The chefs at work cooked me up a HUGE feed earlier so now I am not at all interested in food!! Wish me luck!! I'm doing this for the friends I have made in the last couple of months - they know who they are so motivation is NOT an issue!! They motivate me to do things every day.
My 2 Cents!! Posted on Aug 11, 2006 at 12:52 AM
Well, here it is again my 2 cents worth. Nothing else to do with them now as it is no longer currency here in Australia so get used to it, I will be here til my little pile of coins runs out. I am an avid supporter of free speech. Heck, it's why I help support the soldiers to do their thing. Because I believe that what they do helps to give us that right. This means that if someone wants to come on here and slam me, I have no issue with that. I am even happy for those blogs to remain on here (Admin, take note!!) But know this, as a Graduate of the Samshaw School of Assholery, (lol sorry Sam)any time you feel a need to slam me, expect it in return. And if your only contribution on these blogs is to give me crap, give it up. What it comes down to is...How big is your pile of coins?? Cos mate, I can go all night!!
Back on my soap box!!! Posted on Aug 07, 2006 at 09:46 PM
This has to be said... I am SICK of people coming into the blogs and running people down!!! If people don't talk to you on this site, try talking to them. If the blogs don't interest you, stay out of them!! If people don't respond to you, don't bag them, either look at the reason why or move on. If this site is not working for you - don't blame the site!! I keep hearing about cliche's within the site. We were all complete strangers who took the time to get to know each other and are now friends. Geeeez people, this isn't a kiddies party where everybody gets a prize. While you should feel free to blog about anything you choose to, just bear in mind if you come in here whinging and carrying on NOBODY is going to respond to you!!
How did you come up with your profile name... Posted on Aug 02, 2006 at 03:38 PM
Ok so mine is obvious. I'm an Aussie Chic. Not very imaginative but hey, it works for me alright!!
Before adopting a soldier read this... Posted on Aug 01, 2006 at 07:35 PM
I keep seeing blogs about adopting soldiers and just thought I would mention... There are numerous services who do soldier adoptions. When you look at these sites please look to see if there is some kind of support service as well. At times it can be tough and the last thing these people need is to have someone help them, become cofortable and used to having them around, then have them leave because it all becomes to over whelming. Also please bear in mind it is not a dating service, there are women who need your support as well.
Definition of a Relationship Posted on Jul 30, 2006 at 10:28 PM
I have got to ask, what the hell defines a relationship now?? I define a relationship as having met, actually physicaaly been in each others presence and had an actual face to face chat about where you are both at and what you are both feeling. The being able to spend significant amounts of time together and share all aspects of each others lives. But dammm, I hear people talk about relationships they have had for years with people they have never met. Maybe we can come up with another name for that so this poor Aussie can keep up.
They cut us off!!! Posted on Jul 27, 2006 at 04:57 AM
OMG, I can't reply to the Yo Aussie_Chic blog anymore!! Damm, might have to start a new one!!
Tanker Brothers Fast Posted on Jul 23, 2006 at 09:21 AM
Ok people, I realise I can't give to much info here, but basically this is a day of fast in support of the soldiers. Wink or leave a msg here for more details, Come on everyone, let's get behind the soldiers!!
No, I think WE scare men away!! Posted on Jul 12, 2006 at 08:26 PM
Not that I'm any kind of expert cos men don't want to talk to me on here but I wonder if it's not us that scares men away - not kids. I mean hell, if you combine these blogs you have men that can't see past 3 months, men scared off by kids, men who can't be faithful. Maybe we drive em crazy and that's what scares them!! Who knows
I had to share this Posted on Jul 10, 2006 at 10:50 PM
I found this amusing... Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given their new wives duties. Terry had married a woman from America, and bragged that he had told his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning that needed to be done at their house. He said that it took a couple days but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were all washed and put away. Jimmie had married a woman from Canada. He bragged that he had given his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the cooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results, but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean, the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table. The third man had married an Australian girl. He boasted that he told her that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed,lawn mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye. Enough to fix himself a bite to eat, load the dishwasher, and call a landscaper. God Bless Australian Women!
Just a polite warning Posted on Jul 04, 2006 at 10:00 PM
I'm not the least bit fussed how you women take this, but if you take it personally it is time to take a good, hard look at yourself. I have had many men on this site mention to me that women have been talking to them for a week or a couple of weeks and then hitting them up for money (and as we saw, it has also happened to women - Thanks to Mindy for warning everyone). Let me tell you, these guys are not in a war zone risking their damm butts to pay YOUR bills!! If you are on this site to leech money from men in the most vulnerable of situations then look out, because if I find out who you are your's will be the next name in a blog and it wont be nice!!
Happy Blog Posted on Jul 01, 2006 at 01:52 AM
Ok everyone, this is going to be my happy blog!! I have been flicking through the blogs and have been contemplating my experieinces since joining MF. This is what I came up with.. I have NOT met the man of my dreams...YET However.. I have met some WONDERFUL friends on here. I wish I could name you all so you know how amazing I think you all are but I wont. You know who you are. Through MF I learnt how to adopt a soldier. I have 3 official adoptions now and about 10 unofficials. They are such an important part of my life, and the benefits of having become involved are enormous. These people are true heroes and I am a better person for having met them. I have had some wonderful conversations with people, some of which were one offs, but left a mark. Oh and I learnt to blog (Hahahahaha) Open your eyes to what this experience could be for you. Don't become bitter because Mr/Ms Right didn't jump straight into your lap. And remember, your blogs are a reflection of you. So words or sentences like 'Hello' or 'I want Military men' aren't sying a whole lot. Neither is only blogging when you're upset or p'ed off. Take the time to show every side of yourself, blog your way through ALL of your emotions. Give people some insight into you. Damm, now I'm getting as bad as the Girly!!
