rub a dub dub (Monday July 12th, 2004 - 21:09)

category: mmhuh?

It’s been two weeks and slowly my bathroom is returning in bits and pieces. The bathtub has re-appeared, most of the tiles are up, but an upside down coke bottle does not a toilet make.


The latest postcard from the sink says it may come home on Friday. I can’t wait!

On July 1 I flew in to the rural New South Wales town of Dubbo with Rex (Regional Express) who are a lovely little airline. For the first time I wasn’t fussed about flying in a propeller plane because the views were so spectacular, the service so lovely and the sheeps wool seat covers warmly nice and soft at dawn. I highly recommend them to anyone wanting to get to rural towns quick fast.

From Dubbo I went on to spend 6 days chasing dogs and kangaroos (who were too quick for my camera) in Peak Hill, and then horses and mice and sheep in Wellington. Sometimes I’m certain I was meant to be a country bumpkin and not some big city living techie weird thing but at the end of the day it’s nice to have the chance to spend time in both.

Last night Kimi got his new car spurting fast and had it not been for a little bit of tactics on Ferrari’s part he’d have been in with a chance for a win. Second is fine in my books (but D I know you want for more!).

Still reading David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas due to having been otherwise pre-occupied with work, animal chasing, playing pool and running about town. Final pages of the novel should be read tonight.

Notes on my new camera….. will have to wait.

I was just gonna say… a post today, without any mention of Kimi, howcome? Then I spotted it was your second post today. Dammit, you tricked me!

Anyway, upside-down coke bottles sound great for toilets. I think you’re ahead of the changing rooms/grand designs etc. TV DIY pundits on that lo-tech home style tip.

What’s wrong with propellers? they’re there not to keep the aircraft flying, but to keep the pilots cool and stop them sweating. Next time they stop and you’re flying just go up the front, and you’ll be able to see the pilots sweating a lot.

But what about holding the aircraft up? I mean somebody/something has to do it…..
