stormy goodness

I hope everyone got a little bit of the storm. The view was spectacular from my mother deck in Brighton. There was tasty tassie lamb to be had. I'll probably by a excom in an hour or so...no big expectations.

how do people sleep

I'm just wondering how people sleep.
Is noise an issue?
Sleeping in vehicles?
Sleeping in moving vehicles?
Is light or lack thereof a problem?
Do you like your pillows fluffed up a certain way? 

I for one prefer darkness and silence and whilst I can sleep pretty much anywhere (I shudder as aI recall my student days) I find it impossible to sleep on planes. 

I'm off to bed. I hope you all sleep well!

bed of awesome

I have a new bed. It is awesome. If I had a camera I would be putting a picture up. Its a delicious queen size comfort machine that after naps my back is feeling better than normal, and I am also feeling rested.

so very cute.



woo! moving tomorrow, packing madly today and tonight.

ekka woes

insufferable ekka woes. travelling to and from work on already packed trains i want to hear nothing of people complaining about not getting a seat or how congested things are. they don't have to do it every day. I wouldn't mind if they drove because then its everyone elses problem, and their resources. 

On a lighter note work is going well. Training is tiring but at least a little entertaining. We have to do these scattergories type games where someone names a topic and everyone says something related to that topic or is out. I cant believe that it took them thirty seconds to come up with shakespeare when I started the topic dead authors...I started listing them off for them; Kant, Dickens, Burroughs, Huxley. I mean seriously! 

The next one someone did was cigarette brands and everyone managed to keep that going for a good 5 minutes just listing them all, kind of sad I think.

So public transport wont be too much of a problem soon, now for the good news. I am moving to highgate hill near south brisbane train station next sat. Then I will only be a 5 minute train ride from work and I can walk into the city when the fancy takes me to do some retail therapy, and I wont have to schlep to and from Brighton every day.

And speaking of retail therapy I picked up two wonderful new additions to my ever expanding library today. Will Eisner's "Comic's and Sequential Art" and "Graphic Storytelling and Visual Narrative" I started GSVE on the train home and it's briliant. It will probably give me some motivation to start seriously writing again, something I have not done in awhile.

I'm going to bed to do this all over again tomorrow, at least I can keep myself occupied with reading awesome literature and hopefully produce some of my own.
