I spent a bit of time Monday looking up the differences between America and Australia. We showed the kids Crocodile Dundee on Friday and I told them that I’m sure the country is not entirely like that. But then I realized that I had forgotten nearly all of what Bill Bryson wrote in his book, In a Sunburned Country. THEN, Sunday night, on House Hunters International, they followed a British family looking to relocate to Australia and I found myself wondering just how similar it is to England. So, I stumbled upon this website and I am happy to say I am a lot more educated now. Aside from little to no seasonal changes there, I think I’d like it.
I like how Sunday was National Drink a Beer day and Monday was National Coffee day. I also think it is silly that there are so many designated days for things that don’t really matter. I agree that it’s kind of fun but also, useless. Things like that, I’m torn on. Frivolous but fun. Hmm….
At one point on Sunday, without really realizing it was beer day, I had a travel mug still half full of coffee when I decided I’d open a beer. Didn’t even really think about it but I was combining those two days.
My back is still kicking my ass; still just sore all over, but I have got to get back to working out. I hate figuring out when it is time to just say screw it and get back to exercising.
A few years ago, I dabbled in some Fanfiction writing (no, I will not tell you where to find it; suffice to say it is damn good 😉 ) but so I got a new review on a story. While I was on the site, I decided to look and see what people had been writing lately and got sucked into a story (Bones, if you’d like to know) and it was really good! And then I got to the end and it was a TBC…. to be continued. NOW I understand how my reviewers who beg me to finish feel. Now I feel like I should try and finish up. I mean, truth be told, I have a couple characters who have been perpetually stuck in a rather vulnerable and probably uncomfortable position in the bedroom for a long time. Poor things…
I just finished my breakfast and I am still hungry. This is problematic, no?
I have to walk across campus so here’s a picture of smoking hot Mario Blanco. You’re welcome.
