New Start at the Middle of the Hill

Originally posted on Buzznet.

I got the job at the conveyancing place. So I work there. I've been working there two days now, and feel like I've been working there for years. It's so cool...I have finally become my 'The Office' where is my Tim played by a cute Martin Freeman? Hmm? WHERE???

The whole office is full of females. Which means things can get slightly snappy. But it's pretty good. I love having an actual lunch break. It's friggin sweet! I don't come home from work at 11 o'clock at night and I don't come back caked in dirt.

I just rang my boss David. His reaction to me quitting - "in saying that, can you bring your shirt back?" Calm and normal as ever. I don't care what he thinks of me off the phone line, but he doesn't really seem to feel too much one way or the other. He just seems happy. How can a man be so happy? He must be in love, because he is still married, his kids all love him. He's a great man. He reminds me a bit of Harry...I don't think Harry will be owning a 7/11 for a living, he'll do much greater things...but it's just Harry all over...

Anyway, everything is going okay right now. So that is good. I just want things to go okay for a while.

YouTube is really amazingly gigantic. I'm trying to respond to everyone and add everyone as a friend...but it's going to take me a while, so please be patient. You are all so wonderful, even the mean people - I love you all! You make me smile!!!

I can't believe my rap has recieved over 1million views - thats just ker-azy!

    Hey "good on ya mate" sounds like you've got yourself a "fair dinkum" (sorry, but I couldn't help myself with the aussie slang...hehe) Oh, btw... I also just wanted to comment on why I think you've had so many views on your youtube rap vid.... First of all, you are very charming and entertaining. Plus, I also think you're very funny... Aaaaaand, considering the usual mindless drivel one finds on the internet, your videos (and you) are entertaining and quite amusing! I think you might just be a "star" in the making.... Okay, nuff said, lol. Good luck (or "break a leg" as we like to say in show business..hehe) with your new job!
    Peace and love sweetie!

    That's a nice attitude to have on the whole thing. Realizing that it's just the internet and not letting things get to you already makes you more mature than about 99% of the population.

    Congratulations on yer new job! When I first heard you mention 7/11, I thought it was some sort of nightclub and you were serving drinks, XD. Anyway, the story behind the hobos is that they either didn't get goodenough grades in their exam, or just had horrendous bad luck. It's such a shame not everyone lives happily ever after.

    I would go out tonight but I haven't got a stitch to wear!! This man said "It's gruesome that someone so handsome should care" AWWWWW!

    Caitlan, you kids really amaze me that you don't fear putting your stuff out there like you do. All your life out there and you don't you fear all these people knowing who and where you are? Most people are harmless, but there are some weirdos out're just 17, I hope you keep a good head about yourself and don't invite trouble.

    This whole internet, mySpace, youTube stuff is pretty creepy. We had this 15 year old girl here locally that met a Kuwaiti guy on mySpace and on her own, flew to the middle east to meet him! Yikes!

    Uh, am I talking to myself? Probably. Oh well. Enjoy the attention, it's pretty obvious that that's what you crave....

    A jumped-up pantry boy who never knew his place he said "return the ring" he knows so much about these things...

    I saw your comments about protecting your mom, that must have been pretty harsh. Maybe that explains your issues with men? Is your dad still around? I only see pics of mum.

    Not that it's any of my bidness. :-/

    Hey, I just added a video for the first time, how about that. I saw a creepy evangilist on TV who if you pay him $1000 he'll get the lord to do some cool things for you. I called the number and told them I was GOD and they were going to hell. lol. Check it out. You can also see my statue of Sparty.

    I love having these one-sided conversations, it's kind of like those monologs where you just assume someone maybe be watching.

    Have a good evening. What is the temp there? Very nice here, in the 70s F. You guys suffering from global warming? You're in winter right now, no? Just blink twice or nod once......

    I see things are slowing down on your board. I also saw you were getting a lot of grief from posters.

    Keep yer chin up lassie. Like I said, the internet can be very creepy. People are not the same as in real life when they can act however they want with no accountability. And there's the porn thing...;-D

    Allo, allo. This is London calling. I just followed a trail from a popular YouTube video (yes, the good rap one), saw some other videos (yes, the also quirky but not quite so good ones - except for the free jumping), and checked out the personal site. Anyway, to keep the CheesyRoquefort salivating for your videos, please inject some of that X-Factor again! Don't look back in 10 years to that rap video as your high point - aim for a higher peak and avoid the easy hills...

A possibility?

Originally posted on Buzznet.

So I joined YouTube...and things got quite crazy. My video got featured and I've had quite a few hits...and over 9000 emails in my hotmail account. :( I'm a bit freaked about it actually. I have got more nice people than mean people I think, but they both comment in healthy even doses of love and hate, which keeps me sane.

I've never experienced this kind of attention before, and its freaking me out. There is so much pressure to make another get featured again and get a million hits like the famous youtubers out there...but its just the I don't know why I feel so much pressure to be great.

I might be going to a interview as a receptionist at a law firm in beenleigh, so thats cool. Hope I get it. Good money, hours, and good place to work. And its a law firm for construction stuff...sounds kinda easy yet possibly complicated.

I've been eating way to much chocolate. Oh, I went to the EKKA and got fudge cuz they stopped selling showbags when i got there...i nearly cried. i was that disappointed cuz i have been wanting to go to the ekka for soooo long. ive never been before, well grandma says i went as a baby, but i cant remember so it doesnt count...i missed out on a lot of things, but went on my first upside-down carnie park ride, which ive always been too afraid to go on, so that was cool for necklace fell behind my head and caught in my hair, so whenever it went upside down, i felt like i was being choked. chocked. lol, chocked. friend tamika was screaming her head was sooo funny. afterwards we all went to the boyz old school and they drank and stuff and we just chatted, harry sent me a drunken rant that i asked grant to translate for me...he said that it means he likes me...its so complicated.

i was crazy on the train home, high on coke, fairy floss and chocolate icecream....coke really is my alcohol...i was all incoherent and all kinds of drunk on the train it was funny, and looking back on it it was also really pathetic looking.

saw grant tonight, we hung out, got food...played games...watched family guy, just hung out. he asked me to kiss him. i didnt. too afraid.

rehearsals for the pajama game were really good. we've learnt all the songs and i love singing like an american.

sorry for the crappy blogging, i know i usually type quite neatly...but nobody reads this anyway!

    this is funny... some of the responses you get... "I see you're a virgo"... sounds like we're at a bar... my favorite: "Hi you dont know me but dont worry im not mental or anything :-)" ... you gotta love that for an opening line...

    and just a hint, "was crazy on the train home, high on coke, fairy floss and chocolate icecream...." sounds like you were snorting lines in the bathroom of the train or something...

    one more hint and this one'll be serious... it's about youtube: don't feel pressured to "make another awesome video" because that only leads to crappy videos and frankly, if it wasn't for your oddness of character in that video response to lonelygirl i never would have become a fan, and stuff like that can't be analysed and packaged... it has to just flow (unlike your rap ;P)..

    in closing... i'd have to say that i am mental and umm... keep up the good work and whatnot or something

    hmm.. how come the comment section asks for an e-mail and then only puts the link there when you first post and view it but upon subsequent views the link isn't there?

    lol glad you liked my opener bluebonics, its from the movie waynes world, you should watch it, its real funny.
    oh yeh you know that coke comment kinda had me giggling as well:-)

    You sure got a lot of fans on YouTube, and now they're leeching here? Everyone's wanting to meet that superstar Caitlin! Anyway, I'm one of them. Hello, I'm Coppo.

    After watching your videos, I saw that you were not only cute, funny, wacky and a great dancer, but also interesting. Which is what led me to your website. 9000 e-mails? Wow, that's what happens when thousands of male single YouTube users want to get into your pants XD.

    Anyway, glad to finally meet you (or rather, post on your journal), looking forward to seeing more of that awesome aussie chick, and I wish I got drunk from coke *jealousy level rising*. ^_^

    Well.. if people didnt.. I believe they have started reading by now. Im brazilian, and Im reading. In fact, you write quite well, and your videos are really funny. I imagine how it is to get about 9000 e-mails for something like that. You'll handle it, maybe you are even having fun.
    Don't mind about the mean comments, they just didnt know to appreciate it; maybe they even envy you. Well.. gotta go now.. before you think I am a crazy person for being here or something... :)

    Hi Caitlin. Just saw your clips on YouTube and read your blog. Both are great! You are hysterically funny in a perfect natural way. Don't let all this attention freak you out too much. And don't feel pressured to do another great clip. Just try to do what you would do anyway. It will be great even if it doesn't attract all the same hype. Anyway, thanks for the chuckles. You made my day better :-)

    "There is so much pressure to make another awesome get featured again and get a million hits like the famous youtubers out there...but its just the I don't know why I feel so much pressure to be great."

    Not to be a downer, but I don't think the video was well-received because of a talented rap, I think it was more due to a flock of horny guys. You looked very cute, and you are a cute girl. Let me just say there's a reason why internet porn makes billions of rubles. If I posted a hottie likcking a popcicle, I'm guessing it would do well on youTube.

    Why do you think people watched lonely girl? :-/

    It's also the real-TV effect, people want to safely intrude on other people's lives.

    Just a little perspective, fwiw.

    you are due to feel now special which salts in Internet your you must feel now special that much people who pay attention to you your you must there feel special to do what few we obtained and is to remove a smile to the people although I believe perhaps that where you live you do not have the reality to the door of your house this mistaking but that I create I think that there many things that to make but that say and are one hurts that for expresarte something teng that to speak in another language serious but easy to speak all he himself language and thus many problems of wars and violences do not habrian good to not I bother you but and I hope that you pass “smile very well so long charming” good bye

    LMAO...was that "Internet is for Porn" comment for me? If so, I'm flattered. Here I thought I was talking to myself. :-D

    You're actually the first video monolog I've seen on youTube and having watched several more, to be honest, I'm kind of growing tired of them. It takes some giant balls to assume people want to sit and hear you ramble, no offense. Regardless, I did enjoy your mindless ramblings. :-P

    Are you going to do the "lick the popcicle in your undies" thing? I promise you'll be #1 again! Don't underestimate the animalistic and dull-witted attributes of the human male to get you far! Personally I'd rather you not get in your undies on youTube and I'm pretty sure you won't....

    Just fwiw, I am not implying I viewed your videos because I compared you to porn. Just that you are an attractive girl (woman?) and you were really cute in that rap video. Hey, that fat dude from NYC worked a lot harder on his video and rap, and it was better, but he doesn't look nearly half as cute as you. So go figure. Cute girls sell, fat hairy Puerto Rican Jews don't.

    Me thinks you were making fun of me, but that's fine. Seriously tho, how safe is it to give out your full name, etc? :-/ Do you think my name is Farkman?

    But I like your "Internet is for Porn" as an album cover, kind of like "Meat is Murder". lol. How about this:

    And the flesh you so fancifully eye
    Is not succulent, tasty or kind
    Its porn for no reason
    And porn for no reason is the internet

    lol. I'm so terribly clever aren't I? At least I entertain myself....(not a reference to porn btw).

    Sorry for all the Smiths references, but that may be the only band we have in common?!?

    Good night, you kook.
