the calm before the storm

I talk about the calm before the storm, last night, we actually had a storm. It wasn't a thunderstorm but one of those soaking rains that we welcome so much when it comes at night and curse if it comes in the day. This one happened at night, and lasted most of the night. It was quite good. The calm I speak of is the calm before the stormy war that is sure to come within the next couple of days. They say that there will be many protests upon the outset of the war but what's the point really? It'll happen so might as well be for the support of the troops. I've said this before in these pages, but I don't see much of it being spoken about in my friend's entries so I thought I'd reitterate.

To continue from my last entry. Right after I finished my last entry, my family came home, so I missed turning on the jug and having hot ready for them when they got home. all that talking about it delayed me just that little bit as to miss their arrival. Afternoon tea was good though as Grandma bought some tim tams from the Australia store for me and I was happy. Tim tams are an Australian cookie (biscuit). They are chocolate coated and have two cookies, almost like a sandwich. In between the two cookies is also chocolate. So it's definitely chocolatey and definitely good.

I went to bed early after selecting about six albums to download form the newsgroups, I still haven't finished downloading them, and then went to bed. I didn't talk to anyone on the phone, I just was so tired that I collected Fiona dn we both went to bed. She slept on her rug, I on my bed. Funny, sometimes she asks to curl up on the bed, sometimes it's on the floor. Dogs can be weird sometimes.

I don't know what we'll be doing today, probably not much. I'd like to do some reading and I'll also probably start on some uni work. We'll see. I shall return this afternoon. Peace.

  • a short update

    The plan is to go to the beach this afternoon, but I'm not sure when. We don't have too much special planned besides that, but it's the last full day…

    I'm not sure what the plan is today, but we have done what, in my opinion, is the perfect vacation activity, slept in and veged out so far. I think…

  • welcome to the jungle, for real.

    Well, we made it, finally! Everyone's up right now, but we're not doing anything so I'm writing. We got here last night, after several delays and…
