Free at last....... for 3 weeks!

Well what a great start to my annual leave. After working last night on the Glen Waverley line, probably for the last time and having a quick bite to eat whilst skimming through emails, only to set my alarm at a time that is before midday.

Having awoken at 9am (yet I only recall looking at my phone at 9.15am), I managed to have a shower and get myself ready and having the annoying time of looking at the mirror and having one of my fat tummy mornings. This meant that whatever I wore made it look worse. Basically what shirt I tried on first went back on and I scooted off out the door and driving off to the station to catch the train and on my way to the Connex Family Day Christmas party at Caulfield Racecourse.

Whilst on my way into Flinders Street on the train, I couldn't help but notice the very large amount of families that were travelling on the train, this being a complete contrast from the normal feral activity that will occur later on during the day. After stopping off at Coffee HQ and chatting to one of the guys on the barriers, I scooted off down onto the platform and caught the Frankston train. Arriving at Caulfield station, I notice a few familar faces on the platform, but continue on my way to the main entrance of the racecourse.

Attendance at the family day was brilliant and so was the general atmosphere. Apart from noticing Vinyl on the catwalk from one deranged staff member who basically has a wardrobe filled with these items and the many Christmasy characters in costume (many would notice the mini skirts on some of them). Lots of laughs, great food, heaps of people to chat with and plenty to drink (alcohol was not free), all in all it was a great day and off I scooted off back into town in the early afternoon.

As a finale to my relaxing day in town, I stopped off at Fed Sq to my normal haunt for a drink, looked around at the trade passing through because of the World Aids Day concert outside. I bid my farewells and hopped on the train back home.

All I can say this week before I go up north is............ "So much work to do here this week."

Understanding languages Pt 2

Things may not be as hard to understand if you actually pay attention to written instructions or if you decide to notice where everyone else gets their information from. The later being the case. Hey I'm still learning. Mind you it's hard to think when you're listening to gun fire on a radio show that I'm listening to.

cute isn't she

Understanding languages

Well all I can say is that after two glass of Boags Draught (Tassie's much better tasting version of a VB) I now know as much XHTML than actually expected. This means that I really don't have a bloody clue what I'm doing but I'm trying my best to see what I can do. I've been working on trying to put a bloody header on this blogspot and I think I've managed to achieve what I was supposed to do. Now I can go to be (4.13am) and make sure I don't wake up from a headache from all the thinking that I had to achieve to be able to get this far. Now all I need to know is how to set up the comments properly so they just pop up. I hate XHTML.

A WINE-ing we all go

Well last night ended up being a great treat. We had the royal visit by my friends cousin, but don't really recall to what happened to the red carpet. After driving from the tramway museum to their place which was only just down the road and arrived there to find that they had already gone through 2 bottles *snort*. I brought along a couple snacks and a bottle of Pizzini (can't quite remember what it was bottle of red). I think we also went through less bottles compared with the last wine night that we had. After munching through some lovely prawns with a nice seafood sauce and then helping Chris out cooking on the barbie the conversation at the table aired on the side of religious discussion. Off to the stereo I go playing "On the Bible". Since the royal couple left and then everyone else decided to leave or hit the sack, the next best thing to end the night would be a screening of Priscilla with a nice fortified. All in all a great night plonk and food wise and the company pretty good. Well work on the next time.

Well here I go

To blog or not to blog, that is the question that I've been thinking about for a little while. There have been a few really good blogs that I have seen on here, but of course I might not be up to that standard that you may expect from viewing such wonderful material. Generally it would be a great place for myself to just blab and comment about anything that I choose and considering I am not a HTML expert, I really can't apply something like this to my site. Hey If i can manage to work out how to use XHTML I might be able to do some cosmetic surgery on here, but I think i'll end up using the band aid technique and try and patch things up. Oh well here we go.
