Tim & Minnie
So on the weekend, we met up with Tim (rahball), who was visiting from Sydney. I've been reading his journal for some time - long enough that when I started, he was a she. Over the years this has made for some honest, entertaining and thought-provoking reading.

Tim brought his Brissie friend Minnie along, who is just adorable and a total sweetheart. The Brisbane Effect struck again when it turned out she'd met Hammond at a party a couple of weeks beforehand. Speaking of Brisbane, it supplied our interstate visitor with a particularly sweltering weekend. Thanks Brisbane, Thrisbane. We ate lunch at Pancake Manor, checked out Tim's sketchbooks, and had all manner of geeky discussion of Stuff We Mutually Like. Afterwards we wandered over to South Bank. We attempted to survive the heat long enough to check out the markets. Heat was fail; finally we gave up and collapsed on the rocks beside one of the fake-creeks in the area. We stayed there for a while, dangling our feet in the water while we chatted and watched ibises stalk around.

It kind of sucks that Tim and his boy live down in Sydney, as we got along like a house on fire.

Speaking of fire, did I mention how hot it's been lately? IT'S BEEN HOT. It's been so ridiculously hot that I consider walking in the morning, poke my head outside to hear the cicadas screaming and think, "fuck no!" I'm going to have to start doing some sort of excercise at night or something, because this is getting ridiculous. This morning I caught myself giving consideration to joining a gym just for the air-con.

Catching up with Greg and Elizabeth this Thursday night, I'm really looking forward to it. :)

It's been 21-ish down here, are you jealous? ;)

I'll come up and see you again in a few months when I feel rich enough to fork out the money on a return plane fare.
