oh oh and then there was 99.


today is one of those days where the computer that i work on does that thing before a meeting and then you have to cancel. then you have to retrieve all the work you did today, somehow from the 'virtual' memory and dislodge it (i havent tried this yet).

its the shittest thing ever.

on the bright side i was looking at this lovely little blog by one stringbeanjean who had a go with yoko and john. tried that little formula that you used to justify a crush in early high school. inscribed in the front of your folder in amongst the posters of johnny depp or mark wahlberg.

i got 99% which is about right as we are stupendous.

i hope your 'straya day was fun. we had barbecues and then went and saw an odd line up which included st. helens at the tote. they were great. an all-star line up melbourne supergroup you could say...


today was a day for a fruit retrieval mission.
we were out of peaches and nectarines.

i had found a peach tree on tuesday, with little fruit and i went to get the rest of it.
and then i decided to head a little further afield.

brunswick east provided. after all these years of struggle with the north
carlton 'pomegranates' and 'mirabella plums' (hardly satisfying)
i came across 'public' fat juicy nectarines, little apples, limes, and peaches.
all within reach!

soon the figs will be ready, i have a memory map of where they are.

i also met a nanna's cat and the biggest succulent i have ever seen (taller than me)

a good outing, as i dont get out much these days.

ive decided to work at home, that way i have more chance of starting work at an early hour and finishing at a late hour...
thats how it will work isnt it?

ive had a sad couple of days, no money, lots of bills, too much study, too nice a holiday, abandonment by my business partner (i am now on my own)

next week i have a job interview will the devil. a large company that will pay me money. but alas, i may have to sell my soul for six months.

im still in love though so thats keeping me alive.

enough with the procrastination...

happy wednesday.

i had a perfect new years in a caravan down at venus bay. not just any caravan, but a 1960s caravan, that was once an aeroplane fuselage... it was magnificent. there was mojitos, beach, stars, and other things.

now i am wel rested after a two week break, half in venus bay, half in halliday bay (central queensland).

i hope you all had a lovely holiday, and that all tensions were averted.
