Life is pretty basic, and that is a good thing. So while the rain here was intense, it was short and the ex-cyclone headed south to wreak mayhem while we just enjoyed things going green and a return to normal. It was so normal (in an intensely hot and humid way) that friends went on a short holiday and we had dogs. YAY!! I miss them terribly now they are gone and am looking at greyhound rescue websites. I just love this whippet and figure that a greyhound is similar, but takes up more couch.
Although the cyclone has moved on, we are left with the aftermath of an insane and unsustainable food distribution network that sees EVERTHING trucked to Brisbane (1300km south) and then shipped up here, even if the produce originated from here. Seriously. There ought to be a law.
There is a law regarding the safe movement of vehicles at intersections, but my university has decided to make up their own anti-social engineering rules and make this campus CAR CENTRAL! All you weird asses walking around, just piss off!
I have cut and pasted chapter and verse of the road rules to the powers that be, and I think I am winning, again. I seem to have to revisit this every couple of years. Time to push for some actual policy around here.
I was invited to one of those 5am group ride thingies and felt obliged to go. It was good if you like that sort of thing. meh. Couldn't wait to get home, put in the ear buds and shoulder the backpack and have a decent fang.
I had to get to work for a photo op with the new workstations. I hung my bike up this time to demonstrate how it is done.
