So my household managed to exceed our 20 Gig a month download limit somehow. I realise I’m partly responsible but 20 Gig is quite ridiculous. This makes use of my computer frustrating. In addition I’m having ongoing difficulties trying to get a linux operating system happening on my computer – I’m close and will persist for a little longer.
A friend of mine is going away for 3 weeks and lending my his Motorbike. So excited – I haven’t been on a bike for many months.
The Electric Six’s Senor Smoke is the sound track to my life at the moment replacing Cold Cut’s Sound Mirrors. Both Albums didn’t strike me as particularly exciting when I first listened to them but I’m obsessed with both of them now.
I keep dreaming that I’m overseas and face increasingly difficult obstacles to getting to my plane home. When I was overseas I had to make it to London by a certain date in order to catch my plane to Bangkok and them home, it wasn’t particularly difficult but I did have to get from Morocco to Madrid so that I could catch a plane to London. In my dream I basically keep reliving this though my dreams only there is always something getting in the way. Someone can’t give me a lift, I get lost or something else. The dream is always completely different with different people in it but the theme doesn’t change. I’ve dreamt the same thing at least the last three nights. On two of those nights I woke up wondering which country I was in and it took me a few seconds to figure out I was in Australia. Can you imagine my disappointment.
My best friend is engaged. I’m going to be the best man. That makes me really happy for quite a few reasons.
I’m on the dole, the rock ‘n roll, working for Bracksy etc. For the first time in my life I’m receiving some sort of government benefit. You’ve got to fill out a job diary and apply for 10 jobs a fortnight but you only have to submit your diary once every 12 weeks. I hope I’m employed by then so I can’t help but feel that I’ll never fill it out. I’ll let you know when I’m employed again.
Last night I went to an A-League game – my first one. It was great and the mighty Melbourne Victory defeated Perth 1 – 0. There was 25000 people there. It felt like this whole new world that I was previously unaware of.
Is anyone else quite overwhelmed with joy at this news?
