Jaime - Blog Post of the Beast

Yes, my distraction was a cheap ploy so that I could get the 666th post on Hive One Sentence Journal. After you groan at my antics, be happy, 'cause we're on Holidays!

Jaime - A distraction

Jaime - Almost there

Can hardly concentrate at work today, only one more sleep until our trip begins. Hurry up damnit!

Kit - Bye-bye wheel

By keeping my bike obsessively locked on the balcony, I've somehow managed to break the little disc-y thing that all the spokes are connected to. Bye bye wheel. :-(

Ben - Tasty soup

Fairly quiet holidays so far. Made a big pot of sarma, a Hungarian dish consisting of pork, bacon, sauerkraut and paprika and therefore qualifying as the most Hungarian dish it is physically possible to make.

Also very tasty.

Jaime - I want to be a Jugger

Simply put, I would like to be a Jugger after I found that Europe, North America and Australia have Jugging leagues.

Dan: Torrential!

In the space of 24 hours yesterday and today, we've dealt with:
  • 2 poos in the bath (yesterday and today's bath)
  • 1 huge vomit on the carpet at the top of the stairs
  • 1 bucket of vomity water accidentally kicked down the stairs onto all the stuff that's under the stairs (by a certain father (who we won't name) of the above vomity child, after we'd cleaned up)
  • 1 nappy that leaked poo out both sides
  • 1 pair of wet pants and undies
Have kids, everybody! They're delightful!

Jaime - You can't catch me

I'm the ginger bread man! Also, Frisky Dingo is quite amusing, but only quite.

Master Cylinder!

Shannon: an extravagance

Splashed out bought myself an early birthday present: the Canon EF-S 17-85mm lens. I mean, it could be some time before I'm back in Europe. Would hate to be there going, "gee, I wish I'd bought that lens".

Anna : So Lazy!

I had another very quiet weekend, got to work on leaving the house more, but I did have my first go at home made booze-infusions! Now I just have to find some saps to drink it ... bring on the 500 night!

Becstarr : Marrickville rain biking

Biked to the Sustainability festival in Steel Park, Marrickville (just on the Cooks River) twice... once on Saturday, a day early (oops) and then for real on Sunday. Plenty of manageable hills, so I guess it was good exercise at least!

The festival was small (clearly in its first few years), which suited me fine. No chai tent (wha?) but there was an indigenous food stand with kangaroo & croc burgers. Plenty of families and various freebies and workshops. Unfortunately the rain then hit and our attempt to bike home between showers was a wetter venture than I was hoping for. Urgh!
