Rico’s computer blew up, so I’m covering for him while he toasts some marshmallows over the embers…

Thanks Kat and Pam.

Quote of the Day:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better start running.

African proverb

  1. Rex Gilroy
    Anyone ever seen any of Rex’s work? Some of it is … tenuous, to say the least. He has a knack for finding skull shaped rocks and foot shaped impressions (even in volcanic substrates!) and citing them as references for all kinds of things.

    His research into Yowies (Aussie Bigfoot) is good, though. He published an anthology of Yowie related stories that is well worth a read if you can find it.

  2. I’m alive, but only just
    Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated, but the demise of my computer is sadly true. I’ve nicknamed it Phoenix, in the idealistic hope it will rise from the ashes and grant me access to the internet once more. Considering the smell of burnt plastic still wafting from its melted shell, i very much doubt it.

    I’m currently wandering the alleyways of Melbourne, in a bold bid to find an internet cafe that serves decent coffee and doesn’t cost much. So I could be a while! Until then, forgive my lack of email responses.

    In fact, I’m rather enjoying having no computer. I’ve been getting outside lately, and my pale complexion is starting to get some warmth into it, and I’ve been reading books and TALKING TO PEOPLE face to face …. it’s quite frightening. My fingers tap against tables seeking imaginary keyboards.

    Anyways, I hope you are all well and I’ll be back online when the dog howls in the Chinese New Year in a couple weeks.
