The frogurt is also cursed

Happy Birthday to meeee! heh... well, close enough. I missed posting about it by a day.

Well, nothing stupid unfortunately. Sorry Mel. Well, nothing extraordinarily stupid that is. Plenty of day-to-day dumbassery; stubbing my toes, bashing my elbow into chairs, stepping in front of oncoming cars, etc... waitasec, scratch that last one.

The last week or so has been pretty boring. Mostly I've been sitting around waiting for calls about jobs I'd applied for, and not much else. I got sick of that, so I bought myself a birthday present. Its my Precious :) (as my dad asked, does it make me the Lord of the Strings? The answer is no. haha)



So that's taken up a lot of my time lately. I had a tough time deciding on an acoustic guitar or acoustic bass, but the price of the cheapest acoustic bass kinda made up my mind for me. The guitar is a little more versatile also, I suppose.

Other than that, I did a couple days bushwalking the last two days. An Aussie girl staying at the hostel was also bored and had a car, so we went on a walk to the Walls of Jerusalem National Park. Its close to Cradle Mountain and the Overland Track; both probably the biggest tourist attractions in Tassie. That was a good little walk... lots of nice scenery 'n stuff. The mountains are no Rockies, but they're pretty spectacular still. So I spent my birthday sleeping in a cold hut in the mountains. :) Better than my last birthday anyways... studying at school right before exams. Bleh. (oh yeah, hahahaha suckers!! :)

As always, some pictures... the first couple are from a little hike close to Launceston. The first picture if you can't read it... the hut's called the Hoo Hoo Hut. Have I mentioned I love the names Aussies give places? heh. And the second... as you can see, everyone here is very nice and they seem to like me right away, just like back home! :)




The next two are from the walk the last couple days, in the park.




And yeah. Looks like I'm going to be hanging around here for another weekend, then hopefully starting working on Monday. Another guy thats staying in my dorm at the hostel here says the place he's working at is hiring, and they're going to call me tomorrow. It'd be work for the Forestry; pruning trees 'n stuff. The same kinda work I did a few summers ago at Davey Tree in Mississauga anyways. I'm getting tired of waiting around for other jobs, I just wanna get working and make some money and get travelling again.

But like I can complain :)

Hopefully if you get the Davey-ish job, it's better than Davey was. And stuff.

Happy belated birthday as well, too bad I didn't get to give you your customary "birthday kicks in the ass". That's OK though, I'll just give you double next year.
Did she push you?

Heh. Thanks for the birthday wishes. And junk. Yeah, I kinda miss the birthday kicks in the ass too, but what can you do. We need to find out some method of e-kicking each other.

I bought some cans of Guinness today to celebrate. So my evening looks like I'll be sitting on the porch drinking and playing guitar. All thats missing is a dog howling in the distance.

Haha, and no, she didn't push me. She'd only known me for a couple days by then... now, I doubt she'd hesitate :)
