catalyst2: (The Judge)
Walking around Forrest Chase Plaza, I noticed a very unfortunate coming together of two street events. The Falun Gong people were doing their usual silent protest against alleged live organ harvesting in China. No more than twenty paces away, there was the old guy who is often in Forrest Chase with his organ donor registration forms.

Yes, the "cheap" pet we picked a few years ago just cost me $1000 in vet bills for a blocked urethra and subsequent treatment. He's back home tonight but he still looks very ill.

First day back at work since 23rd December - sometimes it's a hard life!

I need to pump up my tires on the way to work so I pulled into a petrol station and headed over to the air. There was a vehicle in front of me but I didn't look too closely.

After a while I realised that I had been sitting there for a while so I looked a little more closely - the vehicle in front was, in fact, a large white 4WD towing a double axle trailer, on top of which was a smaller 4WD along with two trail bikes. Even better was that each 4WD had two spares on its roof rack and there were also a couple of spare tires for each trail bike. Better still, the guy was pumping up each and every single tire - a total of at least 22 tires!

I gave up and drove off.

Nuck Yeah!

True story!

Driving to the shops today, I looked over at a house and thought "Well, that's pretty poor Christmas light display!"

When I got level with the house, I realised that it was the silent alarm flashing indicator light for the house!


I must read something complex soon or my brain will start trickling out of my ears.

If, according to Adam Savage,
B(Beer) + S(Science) = G(Good)
then B = G - S.

I don't think that's right, somehow ......

David Boreanaz on Married ..... with Children? According to IMDb, I sure did! Very strange moment, indeed!

Where did all my posts over the last two weeks or so go? Just as well I keep copies in Notepad - but it will be frustrating reposting them all!

Dropped my son off at the airport early this morning. The plane was going to be 2 hours late, then 2 hours 55 minutes so I decided to wait in case the delay got even longer. The woman at the counter said that the issue was with the plane in Brisbane so I thought that might mean a really long delay.

After a while, we decide to buy some breakfast - not 1 minute after our food arrived, they announced that the plane would be boarding immediately! Talk about confusing. In the end the plane only took off about 25 minutes late - not the 2 hours 55, that was threatened.

Went out for lunch today - went back to the wonderful Spices on Ocean. The food was delicious as usual - I had a chicken Jal Frezi for main with some tandoori roti as an accompaniment. The highlight, however, was the entree - Hara kebab. When it arrived I was surprised - these bright green (and I mean BRIGHT) pieces of chicken glowed malevolently on the plate. With some trepidation, I tried the first piece - oh the joy, the thrill. Best dish I've had for a long time - even if it did look like sliced green monkey testicles!

Having watched this movie, I demand those stolen 87 minutes back!

Seriously, WTF?

I grabbed an SST Arachnid Overseer Bug from Tactics today. I already knew that this kit was a pain to put together but I'm not sure I quite realised just how much of pain until I opened the kit. Holy Mother of pinning!

It's the 22nd - Judgement Day came and went. Nobody appears to have been "taken up" or whatever you want to call it. Mind you, I have do have an interview with my boss tomorrow so maybe that's the start of my "5 months of torment". Given the way she can talk, it will probably feel like the entire 5 months after the first 5 minutes of the interview!

Went to get my eyes tested today - had to do the full array (glaucoma, macular degeneration etc) so I had to have those weird eye-drops. I'll never get used the numb eyelids effect from those drops. Had to sit in the food court for about half an hour afterwards to get focus back in my eyes but the tingling has only gone in the last hour or so.

Went late-night shopping tonight and on the way out, a woman (probably in her late 50's/early 60's) called out to me in the car park. The hood to her car was up so I guessed that she had broken down. Eventually I helped her jump start her car but that wasn't the strange bit.

Pink! She was dressed head to foot in pink, including ever-so-cool pink ugg boots and her entire car was pink - steering wheel, car seat covers, even the car's inside light was a strange pinkish tone. Still stranger were the gigantic black plastic eyelashes attached to her car's headlights and equally gigantic pink lips attached the the car's front grill!

She was so grateful that I didn't really notice at the time but afterwards, it was all I could do not to laugh.
