C'mon people!

Okay, first things first... I've gotta admit I'm a little disappointed in how many people actually thought I got a mullet. C'mon people! :)

Yeah, that was halfway through the haircut. The barber thought it was pretty funny too... I promised to send him a copy of the picture so he could put it up in his shop. haha. It's really different with short hair... the first couple days I must've looked like a psycho, twitching my head to get my imaginary hair out of my eyes. It just wasn't working though... my hair gets really curly and puffy and just disastrous when it gets long. I'm sure cutting it was for the best.

So... not much to post about this week. I'm starting a job on Monday, just some casual labouring work, helping to install walk-in fridges and freezers. A hundred bucks a day cash in hand, so that'll be alright. I've been applying to a lot of engineering jobs, but haven't had any luck there yet.

Huh. The last couple weeks have been pretty lazy. Now, I know I've told a lot of you that I've been lazy at one time or another. But this time... Lazy with a capital L. Hmm... lemme think of an example. Okay, picture a rock. And think of me sitting beside the rock... having a staring contest with it. And winning. I have an excuse for being lazy though.. it's been rainy. So there.

Okay, maybe not that bad. But they have a small bookshelf full of books here at the hostel, and I've gone through a good pile of them. I read the Da Vinci Code in one night. :) That's a good book by the way... seems every other backpacker I meet that's reading something is reading that. I've been out looking for jobs plenty of times too. A lot of time on the guitar also... I've been making some good progress on Classical Gas, so that'll be cool when I get all that figured out. I seem to have to practice for a couple hours before I make any headway at all, but it'll be worth it, as long as I don't go insane.

One picture from when I actually made it out for a walk and it wasn't raining. Just the casino from across the river. This computer I'm on sucks and I only managed to get one picture off my camera, so this'll have to do.

This weekend should be good... my mate Joe that I worked with in Tasmania is here for a couple days before he goes to Japan for a year, so I won't feel that bad about having a few drinks with him. The name of the game is moderation now :)

Too bad I'm not back home this week though.. I'm missing the annual canoe trip with my brother and dad. I'm sure they'll have lousy weather though :) Happy Fathers Day by the way!
