20 Bread Rolls, A Brainstem Infection & A Lunar Eclipse | Mon 21st to Sun 27th Jun 2010 — Ned Martin’s Dot Org

Monday 21st June – Brainstem Infection

Day

I felt quite unwell all day, as though I had a brainstem infection with extra pressure in the right ear.

Night

I had curry with Maz, then went over to his place.

Tuesday 22nd June – Sick

Morning

I called in sick. I’m not sure how sick I actually am, as I felt alright yesterday morning, but after how the day developed, I don’t think I’ll risk it. Staying home and relaxing is much better.

Afternoon

Bronwen and I drove to Govinda’s at West End for a late lunch, then out to Bronwen’s, then back to my place, then later on in the evening, down to Kangaroo Point for a birthday BBQ and some climbing with the climbing people.

Night

I dropped Bronwen to her parent’s, and went to bed. I’m still a bit sick, but not as bad as yesterday.

Thursday 24th June – Twenty Bread Rolls

 

Night

I had a quiet night at home, apart from rushing to Woollies just before the shut, buying twenty bread rolls, some vegetarian hot dogs, ice cream, cream, sugar, and apricot pies.

Friday 25th June – LED Torches

Day

Today I bought another two LED torches on eBay.

Night

I picked Bronwen up from work, we listened to music, and hope to get dinner soon.

Soon

After ages of book reading, Bronwen stopped, and we went to Halim’s, and had a lovely curry. I’m now very full, and my apricot pie is baking.

Later

My apricot pie was lovely, and now I’m off to bed.

Saturday 26th June – Lunar Eclipse & Orleigh Park

Morning

I had a lazy morning, driving Bronwen up to her parent’s place towards the end of it.

Afternoon

Bronwen and I drove to the Powerhouse Museum and had a look at the World Press Photo 10 exhibition, which was quite disturbing, and made me angry at the gross injustices in the world.

Night

Bronwen and I, after eating dinner, drove to Orleigh Park in West End, where we attended a Fire Festival, and watched the partial lunar eclipse. Bronwen got covered in black from fire-twirling, and I had a very yummy milkshake from the relatively insane (but also very yummy) girls at Ice Cream Mania.

Sunday 27th June - Bunnings

Morning

I drove Bronwen up to her parent’s place, from where she drove home. I then bought breakfast from the bakery, and relaxed at home.

Afternoon

I drove over to Maz’s with the bent parts of Sabine’s bed, then up to the hardware at Indooroopilly—which didn’t have what we needed—then out to Oxley Bunnings, via Kieran’s to get Kieran, then back to Maz’s, where we cut, drilled, bolted, and hopefully fixed the bed.

Night

Valerie arrived back from Carnarvon Gorge and I rushed home from Maz’s to let her in, then back to Maz’s where I ate my curry.
