Sunday was a busy day. We had the Janssen family around for an Aussie BBQ” lunch for Naoko’s sake. There was about 30 people around there, but I had to skip out about 2:45 for music practice etc.
There is also talk of setting up Antioch at our local parish of Mitcham, so we might be getting involved in that as well. Probably not on a hugely committeed basis, though, as the meetings tend to be on Sunday nights which clash with Volleyball. It is heading towards 11pm and I need a shower before I hit the hay, so I’m out of here..
I’ve been spending a bit of time building up another machine to put in the lounge room. I was thinking of using it to play CD’s and DVD’s, but I am having trouble justifying $150 for another Video card that will do TV out and $150 for another DVD drive when I can buy a real DVD player for $350. If nothing else it will be good to have a machine in the lounge to look up the TV guide. If only I had some friends who wanted to come around, I now have threee machines that will play Unreal Tournament. Also our Exchange teacher has arrived from Japan. It turns out I had guessed correctly and she is the English teacher, so language is no problem at all. I’ve never travelled, so I thought I should at least find out a bit about Japan. I did find this site which had some interesting information, but it was also interesting to do some comparisons with home. Japan is about the size of my home state of Victoria, but it has a population of about 125 million people. There are only about 19 million people in the whole of Australia. It almost makes me feel claustrophobic, just thinking about all those people. I’m also pondering the idea of putting up a site about sound to store al those little factiods that I keep needing and as an excuse to do a bit of research and find stuff out. Link soon.
Another busy week. The musical is over and hopefully things will settle down a little. I don’t seem to have been home for more than a couple of hours at a time for weeks. There are some big changes going on at work with our parent company ceasing trading, (We will be moved elsewhere, coz we make a profit!) PC Magazine Australia, who is currently one of our largest clients, is also undergoing some change in the direction of thier magazine, which we will hopefully get some input in. anyway, time to go..
Those darn servers kept me busy all week, and now it’s Sunday night again and I haven’t blogged at all. Exiting things for the week: Friday & Saturday night I helped out with the Mt Lilydale school musical, Viva Mexico.
Had a great night Friday with the Trivia Night, and lost badly. Saturday night went to the youth Mass at St Peter Julian’s in Mooroolbark and then round to one of the parishoners for dinner afterwards. Sunday spent the day relaxing until it was time to go to Cornerstone (our music ministry) & Mass.
Tomorow I’m off to a Trivia night with our friend Dianne. I’ve been on the winning team at 2 of the last three Trivia nights I’ve been to, though the prize I won at the last one was a bottle of Queen Adelaide Chardonnay. 🙁
This is my first blog. This will be the spot for all my thoughts and what I’ve been up to. It is probably going to be very boring, but hey, this is the Web…. If you dont like it, there are other places to be……
