finally a cool change and much relief
after five days of scorching heat. the office is beginning
to cool down as the southerly blows down the alley and in
through all the open windows. after a week of no sleep and
no air conditioning i'm totally exhausted and the idea
of work is most unappealing. fortunately there's nothing
too pressing that needs doing before the weekend.
Lil'Bro decided not to come
in to work today having worked 10+ hours on his database project
yesterday and into the night. fair enough, i supose, but Big-P
and i are still wondering if this project is worth the time
and effort as there is some doubt as to who, if anyone, will
end up paying for it.
Big-P and i wandered down the street
to our fave japanese cafe for lunch, which is always such
a good deal. 8.50 for miso soup, rice, a small dish of pickle
(usually beautifully marinated pumpkin, or eggplant or some
such thing), and a choice of main course - i usually go with
the sushi plate. am i right about the good deal?!
the weekend doesn't seem to
be too busy which is a bit of a relief. tonight special-K,
Small and I are going to lash out and see a moof - probably
three to tango, all being in the mood to see a pile of shit.
plus you can't get enought of Dylan what's-his-face
from the practice. such nice arms... matthew perry looks remarkably
fat in any of the previews i've seen. since when has
neve campbell been going out with john cusak? is there
absolutely no justice? ha ha.
tomorrow we're christmas shopping
in the morning - probably out at chadstone which has expanded
in time for the christmas rush. Big-P needs to find something
light and postable to send back to his parents in canada,
and dad's birthday is sunday. what do you get for a man
who doesn't have time to read, play golf, fish, watch
videos... i'm thinking the new lonely planet restaurant
guide. or a shirt.
i can't believe how many ants
we have crawling around the office. the fact that lil'Bro's
desk is a mess of crumbs and coke cans can't be helping.
