I woke up yesterday, early for a Sunday, to go and play this weeks round at indoor soccer. Only one other person from my team actually showed, so we had to borrow some players for us to at least play. We played with members from a team called the Scrub Turkeys: guys with a green Flinstone-esque top, with little bush turkeys all over. They played well, and were great sports too. We lost anyway, so that meant that i didn't have to pay (the whole) match fee becuase it counted as a forfeit because only two of us showed.… Read more →
Today was a very nice way to wake up: a call from work asking if i could do the shift starting in 15 minutes. Nothing to complain about though, because i have been looking for more work, so the twist of fate was ironic.
At work a guy was wearing the most humorous shirt for a computer geek like me (yes i do recognise the obvious): it had on it:
There are 10 types of people in the world: Those that understand binary and those that don't. (If you want an explanation on why this is humorous, post a comment)… Read more →
Well today is a good day. The landscaping is mostly complete. That means for me less exhaustive working in the yard, and now i actually can have some time to really do what holidays are meant for: nothing. Yes, just that pure indulgence of sitting on your lazy behind and just let the hours roll by.
Yesterday was a good start. Went and saw 2 movies: Welcome to the Jungle and Something's Gotta Give. The former i didn't think much of. I guess i was expecting more out of this action movie, but i guess that these days that … Read more →
The other day Rhys reminded me, in a bout of reminiscing, of a certain part of my history, that of 'breaking it down'. I know that to most people this blog entry will be greeted by a collective 'what the...?', but those who were with me at school will remember and understand this topic quite well.
Anywho, Breaking It Down: This was a short little celebration performed by me usually following a skillful or significant event during a game of handball (or wallball). After the event i would proceed to celebrate my doing this dance, usually accompanied by a vocalised … Read more →
I've just updated the code behind this blog to make it more secure, so if anyone notices any stuff ups, PLEASE let me know!… Read more →
Well we got our butts kicked 10-0. I hope i play better at futsal (another, better, form of indoor soccer) on Tuesday night. … Read more →
Well i have been proven wrong. I thought nobody would even touch the shoutbox on my homepage. So wrong in fact that i'm looking for a new shoutbox which has better archiving utilities.
Went to a 21st party last night with despina's brother's wife's side of the family. Reminded me that i've got to start planning mine, which is coming up soon.
This afternoon is the first game of indoor soccer since the CHristmas break, i can almost feel the fat recoiling in terror at the approaching exercise... Hopefully we will win, and not suffer anymore draws and losses.
I've … Read more →
Well my site is now up. Took a long time because a lot of the urls i had were not in the proper case, which was fine on the telstra server, but not on this one. (i guess it serves me right for bagging them out in my intro). Add into the mess more crap, and, you get the drift.
More rocks came today for the landscaping, which had to be washed before putting them in place.
Today i also had a strange craving for a Red Rooster Strip Sub, which i promptly satisfied.
I think i'm probably staying up … Read more →
My site is neally up, making the transition from a free telstra webspace to here is taking a bit longer than expected. Finished the new intro for the site, special thanks to Despina for her assistance and patience.
Anywho, at least the blog works! (except the views count for each entry isn't quite accurate);)
Backbreaking labour continues.… Read more →
