Well, it's 10pm on a Saturday night, and i'm not out, i'm at home. Why? Because i'm flying out to Alice Springs early tomorrow morning.
It's a family holiday, probably the last one we'll go on, as these things usually cease to exist once you reach my age, and holidays with friends tend to take over.
Part of me really wants to go, but another part of me doesn't.
Part of me tells me that i've left work at a good time, because there are fights between people with OH&S Issues, and once I come back, I goto TAFE, instead of work.
But another part of me doesn't want to go. I'm missing a lot this week, Because although I miss out on all the OH&S fights, I also miss out on the updates to work safety that are results of those fights. I also miss out on receiving an order from an online store placed last week, and I miss the launch of an ATi graphics card at Homebush.
Also, I can't seem to find my normal discman, so i'll be resorting to the skipmaster. Most of you know it, but for those of you who don't, i'll fill you in; I have an old discman, probably had it since about year 7 or 8, and it doesn't have any skip protection whatsoever, thus everytime it was tapped, shaken, bumped or thrown, it would skip. It became infamous at swimming carnivals and athletics carnivals, as it would be someone's (usually Dazza) task to constantly skip it by tapping it.
Most of all, i'm gonna miss my mates (or sanity saviours, whatever you want me to call you), because as you folks know, a weekend in with the family isn't terribly exciting. and i'll be spending the next 8 or so days with just my family. So expect random crazy SMS' sometime during the week, provided I have mobile phone reception...
...If I don't have mobile reception i'm gonna be in trouble.
Well, I've gotta go, i'll be up and getting ready in a 6 short hours, so i'll see you all on the weekend of the 3rd-4th (maybe before, as I get back on the 28th), where I plan on having a massive weekend, to make up for the mind-numbing weekends with my parents. Probably Manly or my place, maybe both. So keep Saturday night free, and maybe friday too.
EDIT: It's 4:38, and i've found my normal discman. Hooray \o/
