I’m starting to figure out that my blogging style is kind of like everything in my life. Hormonal. At certain times of the month I’m blogging every five seconds and then at other times of the month there is absolutely no inspiration. At the moment I’m in the uninspired phase and am just posting to alert you to the fact that I’m still alive.

In the past week I’ve applied for a photography course at Tafe which will last for 3-4 weeks every Saturday from 9-12. It involves learning about SLRs, apeture and shutter speed. I’m hoping to learn more about lighting because I think that is the difference between a holiday snap and something that makes people gasp.

I’ve also been to an engagement party where I walked past a guy I’ve known since I was born. He was saying "Hi Amy" and I’m like "yeah hi, who the hell is this guy" until I realised that I haven’t seen him for about 8 years and he is all grown up. I also discovered I was a bit of a homebody because my mother with her broken arm still had hours of partying left in her while I was ready for bed. How sad is that!

I’m also enjoying being able to eat food again after my forced famine. It wasn’t good though because the two days of not really eating meant that I could justify naughty things like triple chocolate chip choc dipped cookies from Mrs Fields. Nasty!

I’ve gotten my first quote for renovating the bathroom and as a result I’m looking for more quotes. It’s the price I expected but you always need to shop around.

It’s Pauline’s birthday this coming saturday and we are thinking of visiting the Summit Restaurant at Mt Coot-tha so that she can indulge in some burnt caramel dessert. I can’t write about what I’m getting her as she reads this but I think it is pretty cool as well as funny. After almost 10 years I think I’m finally close to giving her what she actually wants as a present. 🙂

    Interesting post. Can I get abstract on you and quote from one of my favourite authors? Heh, why am I asking, I’m gonna do it anyway!

    “Timing is important in dancing and pipe or string music, for they are in rhythm only if timing is good. Timing and rhythm are also involved in the military arts, shooting bows and guns, and riding horses. In all skills and abilities there is timing…. There is timing in the whole life of the warrior, in his thriving and declining, in his harmony and discord. Similarly, there is timing in the Way of the merchant, in the rise and fall of capital. All things entail rising and falling timing. You must be able to discern this. In strategy there are various timing considerations. From the outset you must know the applicable timing and the inapplicable timing, and from among the large and small things and the fast and slow timings find the relevant timing, first seeing the distance timing and the background timing. This is the main thing in strategy. It is especially important to know the background timing, otherwise your strategy will become uncertain.”
