I'm happy that I started reading Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time again and stayed up till 1:30am reading it. In case anyone is reading it I won't spoil anything, but the plot thickens... which shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who does so happen to be reading it considering that by book 10 the plot has thickened to the point where it is no loger a liquid by a highly dense solid mass.



And my Zero Punct. shirt arrived just now Unfortunately, it's a bit big... I can wear it as a dress.

EDIT: I also figured out why I like Strike Witches: Aes Sedai. That is all.

So, as some are aware; I'm off to Tokyo for New Year with a couple of mates. For part of the trip we decided to hire a car and get out of town for a day, maybe up to Fuji.

Now, the instruction given to the mate organising this was "find something large and comfortable: good for four adults to spend a day in and which won't end with us in a tree (seeing as only one of four has any experience driving in potentially icy conditions). If you don't feel like walking to Ghibli, we can keep it for another day".

Somewhere along the line this was translated into, and I quote: "two MX-5s and an electric car called Carol".




Can't say I'm disappointed, but really wonder why we even bother giving the man instructions. For the record, he is one of the inspirations for Jethro... now you know where he gets (some of) it from.

An MX-5 for a mountain drive? Not a bad idea. I guess your hire service will let you have the new models... hopefully with standard transmission.

Well, I had a small party at my place last night - a small get together with a few close frineds. Well, one of them had a resentation he had to go to for a club he's in, and so arrived at 10:30. Everyone esle got here around the 4:00 - 4:30 mark, and started drinking around 5:00. As you could imagine, we were quite intoxicated (the plethora of drinking games probably did not help, and neither did letting my older brother mix a drink. Half and half of Canadian Club and Coke is unpleasant). Now, at about 9:30 - 10:00ish, I got the idea that we should all glomp said late friend when he came in...

... And glomp him he did! Sort of turned into a dog pile though. Laughing

Hmm... sounds like that time we ran out of tonic water so started making gin and tonics with just the gin (and a slice of lime).

Went out the other night with my wife and daughter to the Festival of Lights here. They made several light displays around the race track at Hutchinson Island, that you could drive around and view. In the pit area was a petting zoo, snow machine, fires for roasting marshmallows etc... it was a great time, and Rhiannon's face when she saw the snowflakes blowing is a sight I will carry happily to the grave with me.

Also, it was a cool enough night that I was able, for the first time in YEARS, break out my leather trenchcoat and wear it around... I've really... REALLY missed that coat. *grins*

I'm glad to be home in time for dinner with the family after my latest 'Round-the-World work trip.

Kara was nice enough to pay me a visit during my stop-over in Tokyo for a drink of something fruity and pink (like her creator, she's a Girl Drink Drunk):

Back at home, safe and sound... give me a few days to sort out photos and rip music, but short version:

- Yes I made it to the GSG exhibition; no, I didn't buy anything. Unfortunatley the only thing I wanted there was sold out.
- MX5 + RX8 + Hakone Skyline = awesome.
- MX5 + RX8 + trying to keep a two car convoy together in Tokyo traffic... not so awesome.
- Tower Records will eat all your money.
- Akihabra: still scary, still geek-tastic.
- Harajuku is my new favorite part of Tokyo. I'm moving there and buying a Mini Cooper (a proper one, some of the roads are tiny).
- "Hello Sir, welcome aboard... would you like a champagne before takeoff?" is something I could very much get used to... as are lay-flat beds.

So, just finished Steins;Gate (it's pretty good, the end reminded me a little of Dr. Who, which is always a good thing), and after seing this pic:



I have decided to buy a lab coat... and since I'm having to do year 12 again (I didn't get an ATAR last year and I need an ATAR to get an officership in the ADF), and I'm taking physics again, I shall wear it to physics! Because I am mad scientist!

Having now seen a weather map, ex-TC Oswald seems to have parked itself just about ontop of Gladstone. Visual only, uncontrolled airfield; poor visibility, low cloudbase, driving rain, stong and gusting crosswind, Virgin given up and cancelled all flights due to "severe weather conditions"...




Fuck yeah! QantasLINK!


Now safely back in Brisbane, Australia Day party here I come.

Been there. Embarer 120 into Philadelphia during a major storm. Rockin and a rollin so hard I thought I was doing a night trap on the Nimitz in a C-2 Greyhound.

Then there was the time I flew into Newark on a 777 during a hurricane. So smooth didn't even jostle the ice in my drink.

That's when you know you had a badass pilot at the helm who heard about the hurricane and then radioed the tower that he was "coming in hot". After which he flipped his cap back, put on his shades, lit the cigar in his mouth, and topped it all off with "Slowride" by Foghat.

Not only is the new series of Top Gear now airing on BBC2, but Professor Brian Cox's new show - The Wonders of Life - kicks off right afterwards. dancin\\'

Three cheers for Internet streaming. cheers cheers cheers


Oh, and "Recognizer" from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack is strangely appropriate for the new Bentley Continental GT Speed. Very Happy

And yes, Kara thinks WRC in a Bentley is a quite sensible idea. sweat

I'm pretty happy about this: Henrietta - or I will be when she arrives. You never forget your first dangerously obsessive child-cyborg assassin, so they say. Well, I don't suppose many people get the chance Smile

Postponed flights to Gladstone due to flooding in the hopes that by tomorrow things like power and internet will be restored and most roads back open... figured I'd work out of the Brisbane office.

Turns out that's closed too today due to the potential for flooding during today's flood peak.

Long weekend just got longer.

Little things, but I was out exercising the Alfetta today and got a thumbs up from someone driving a brand new Rolls Royce Ghost.

Feasibly I guess it could have been the chauffeur as well; but the positive reactions that car gets are always appreciated... especially compared to the BMW, which is nice to drive but occasionally has the tendency to make me feel like I should have "cock" tatooed across my forehead.

The Ghost is the one you buy if you want to drive. Wink

And while BMWs used to be driven by cocks, that is now Audis per TGUK. Razz


In other news, The Princess and the Pilot has been licensed for R1 by NIS America so not only do we get a great film, we get the deluxe treatment NIS America is known for.

Disney released Wreck It Ralph today via iTunes (and other digital download options). I have the Blu-ray on order, but that's still weeks away and buying it from iTunes as well saves me the effort of ripping it for my iOS devices and let's me watch it now.

Today I got to take the day off school (not actually a good thing since I have to catch up on physics and History now) to visit my state's capital. Most of my mates, when they go to said capital, go to visit rellies, shop, or visit something like Comicon or Avicon. Me, I got to go to doctor that I otherwise wouldn't get to ses till december. The good part is I got my nose chemically cauterised! cheers No more nosebleeds in the hot weather (which is quite common where I live)!

Apart from the fact that I'm falling over from laughter at "got my nose chemically cauterised!", I also just read Voodoo's line in Jeremy Clarkson's voice as he remarks on a Top Gear first.

<--- on both accounts.
You see Voodoo, it means I don't have to waste anymore time with a cotton ball up my nose. And people can stop with the "Are you okay?". I mean, I get where they're coming from, but it's a ruddy regualr occourence for me, so I see it as little else than an incoveniance... an incoveniance that isn't there anymore! w00t!

Lotus club had a day run on, and I found out about a new bit of what could only be described as God's Own Country: cambered second and third gear corners, well sighted... and a 100kph speed limit.



Only problem for the day was the Europa needing a push start when the starter motor let go... and the absolute whiteout conditions encountered coming home. Glad we took the Bimmer rather than the Elise or Alfetta.

Definitely being a drive-tastic couple of weekends. This time it was the Alfa's turn for an airing and the cool mountain air was going the carbs good; which meant I almost had some hope greater than a snowflake's in hell of keeping up with my mate's RS Focus.

Off to Canberra tomorrow. Will be sans computer so comments/replies will be infrequent to non-existant until sometime next week.

Shall bring photos; hopefully not of a kangaroo wedged in the front of a BMW or a Lotus made one with a concrete barrier.
