Hot and Humid

It's Saturday lunchtime and I'm at work for two reasons. First, I had to make a few arrangements, face to face, with one of the presenters. Second, it's SOOOOOO BLOOOOOOODY HUUUUUMID. I'm not sure what the actual humidity reading is, but speaking with some people here at work, they've told me the weather today is ...

Knock Shop

It's Thursday night and I'm convinced the building in which I'm staying contains a knock-shop. More on that shortly! The last few days have been just work, work and more work, which is probably pretty reasonable. Last night, Penny and I went for dinner at "The Wharf". During the Second World War, the wharf was ...

Cripple

It's Tuesday morning and I'm crippled due to a game of "Fly" that went awry. I worked for a while yesterday, monitoring the Alice Springs Morning Show, which was interesting. Also bought a few things from Woolies, including an Espresso Machine, washing powder etc, in an effort to resume a more "normal" lifestyle. For lunch, ...

After having dinner at the "Happy Garden" Chinese restaurant (which has an outdoor area with fans, where you can have a beer as well), It's Saturday morning and I think I may have malaria, or at least I think I have "gone ...

Gotta Work

It's almost lunchtime Friday. After my first day at work, I paid a visit to Woolies to buy an alarm clock and some wine to take to Penny's. Penny is living with two other people in an older-style Darwin home (about 20 years old). Unlike some of the newer Darwin homes, this one has lots ...

Arrived

I arrived in Darwin late last night. The four-hour flight was surpisingly empty and I had a doubleseat to myself, so I slept most of the way. A glass or two of red wine helped, of course. When Iarrived at about 11.20pm local time. I was expecting it to be a lot warmer than it ...

Leaving Soon

It's Monday night. I still haven't packed, I still haven't organised the house, but I'm getting there. working slowly doing what I need to do, and stopping from time to time to watch "Big Brother", and, since I have just moved the computer, I thought I'd pop online briefly to check my mail etc. It's ...
