If you grew up in Canberra, you'll be able to relate to this I'm sure...  if not, well just skip ahead a paragraph or two to get to the good parts....  I just got back from a week on the Gold Coast, and was in the taxi heading home and was stunned briefly into silence.  I saw something that still has the power to take my breath away every time i have been away, something that makes me feel welcome and safe.  If you grew up in Canberra and spent any time at all as a kid traveling to and from the coast I am sure you already know I am talking about...  that first glance of Telecom Tower as you arrive back.  No idea what it is that does it to me every time, but when I saw it tonight I was 5 years old,  and knew I was almost home.  I've talked to others about it and know I'm not alone, so back me up here guys, why is it thats so special to see that glowing tower?

And now, on to other news... 

Many of you know about my lovely lady Alyssa, and some of you have met her.  We've been together a few months now, well as together as ppl who live a thousand kilometers apart can be.  She makes me happier than I can remember being.  She has made me happy, not just about our relationship but about who I am as a person, something I haven't been for a long, long time.  The traveling is getting expensive, no matter how worth it it is. The time apart is getting harder every time we have to part, so its time we did something about it.

And, as much as I am going to miss Canberra and my friends here, I'm packing my bags and heading north.  Not a decision made easily, but it's the best for Alyssa and I, and sometimes we need to make these hard decisions. 

Looking at heading up sometime after the NYE celebrations, early in 2008, date yet to be set...

This weekend I am getting up out of the comfy chair and taking part in the JDRF Walk against Diabetes, trying to raise money and awareness for type 1 diabetes.

If you have a few spare $$ we're collecting sponsorship.  You can sponsor me on the following link:

Thanks guys.

No, not a real update, just another request for people to send me their phone numbers via sms... I was attempting to backup all my contacts to my SIM and for some reason it deleted them instead of copying.  GG

Well for those few who dont know, broke up with Jade recently.  Not a messy breakup or anything, just a "This isnt really working" kinda breakup. 

My damn car broke down recently... I shouldnt really complain, $500 for a car that ran for 4 years with zero work done on it, just means that I wont get to blow my bonus and tax return on a digital SLR like I really wanted.

Other than that... life goes on.

Peace out... expect another update in 6 months :p

Just an FYI that we're having a get together at our place this Friday night from 9:30pm to celebrate Brian somehow living through another year.  Usual party type mischief will no doubt ensue, so come alone and join in the mischief :)

Mood: sick

I just listened to the new Linkin Park album...

I feel dirty, its awful.  Awful doesn't even begin to describe it...  They need to discover new words for that feeling of nausea and disgust that fills me listening to this vomitous mass of what can only be loosely described as music.

I didn't even pay for the damn thing and I feel ripped off.

If that plane leaves the ground, and you're not on it you'll regret it...
Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow...
But soon, and for the rest of your life.



I finally understand that line, and the power behind it. Yes, I decided to get cultured and have created "offsite digital backups" of a few classic movies to watch, to see what all the fuss is about, and I now understand why Casablanca is one of those classics. Really good movie, interesting watch even though it has dated a little (but really, its 65+ years old so who can blame it?).

And now, off to find out why Frankly My Dear, He Doesn't Give A Damn

Well w00t, my tickets to Melbourne are booked in, so will be gracing the southern city from Friday till Sunday.  I have a few things planned so far, I'm mostly coming down for a friends BBQ on Saturday afternoon/evening, but if anyone wants to catch up Friday night or Sunday before I fly out (or wants to put up with a really drunk me on Sat night) let me know.

On another and somewhat related note I forgot to post here (I think? Or did I?) that I lost my phone recently, and as such have nobodies number anymore.  So if you are silly enough to want to give me a way to contact you please send me an SMS with your name so I can add you again.

A bit of forwarning... but anyone interested in doing a photography course in July or August? Be around $600 or so, just asking because its part of my current plan, and if anyone else has toyed with the idea before could be fun to have some company.

Three years ago I posted a kind of short sighted post about how I'd installed the World of Warcraft beta and would "see you in 6 months."

Yesterday I uninstalled it. Someone welcome me back to the lands of the living!

Time to find something else to fill my time with. :D

Mood: hot

I've set myself a few goals, and one of them is regular exercise, at least 30 min, at least 5 days a week. It can be anything from going for a walk/jog/ride somewhere (or nowhere and back again) or swimming, or whatever. But why oh why did it have to be so damn hot on the day I picked to start? Going for a jog in 35 degree heat is just fucked. I'm wrecked, but at the same time feel good for having done it.
