Hi there

Well the working day is nearly drawing to a close, thank the Lord! I've been working today and I'm tired. It's Saturday here in Australia at the moment, for all you people livin' in the past in the USA. It's the first time I've done a Saturday shift -- pretty much a long, boring day of ringing people's answering machines and hoping my reason for being at work isn't validated by a UFO landing or outbreak of the Black Plague. In which case I'd have to stay late and write stories about ...

Hullo kids!

And how is everyone this morning? From where I sit it's a lovely Thursday morning and I'm at home, most unusual for me. As I alluded in my previous post, the reason for my at-home-being-ness is the fact I have taken holidays from work to do my uni exams. The first, and probably the nastiest, of said exams was last night. I'm pleased to report it didn't go too badly. Now with nearly five days between present me and the next exam (which is a cushier one: drama) the study pace today ...

I was just looking on a couple of real estate sites to see what property prices are. I'm shocked! Sure, I knew that real estate prices had been going up but I thought there would be one or two dodgy places around the hood that wouldn't be too exorbitant. WRONG! Everywhere around the areas I'd like to buy and live (which, granted, are inner city suburbs) is so pricey. And the expectations of buyers are so high, too: one place touted a property as "ideal for first homebuyers" and it was half a mil...

I was sitting outside on the steps the other night thinking of how you can never expect the unexpected, because if you expected it then it wouldn't be unexpected anymore. And the things that happen that are unexpected -- those kick in the stomach type things -- are often so terrible or happen to the last people you would expect them to, that if you ever in your wildest imaginations thought of that scenario happening, you would berate yourself for ever thinking such a terrible thing about that pe...

I'm both sad and excited at the same time. A big thing happened to me today and I'm all a fluster of emotions at the moment so please bear with me. Today I had to say goodbye to someone who's been a very important part of my life for a number of years. It's ok, I knew it was coming and he'd been sick for quite some time and I knew it was better to let him go. It's been hard though.

His name was Wellington and he was my mobile phone. Since we first met on 20 June 2001 we'd been practically i...

Hello everyone,

It is my pleasure to announce the birth of Caleb -- congrats to my pals Rin and Andy on the birth of their second son yesterday. It's widely agreed that he's a cutie, though huge! Apparently he was 9 pounds 2 ounces when he was born, but as I know very little about childbirth and babies, I'm taking everyone's word for it when they say he's a little sumo.

Hey everyone

I feel very content right now -- warm, dry and well fed. All good things to be thankful for, especially as there are so many who can't say the same, but even more exciting for me at the moment as for the past four days it was pretty rare that I fit into any of those categories!

I've just come back from Sonfest, a big Christian music festival held out in a little country town west of Brisbane (Queensland, Australia) which I s'pose is kind of like a Christian version of Sunbury ...
