Evening

Scenery from the Mt. Mee roadBronwen drove home via the scenic, windy Mount Mee road, and we drove to her place, looked at her internet—found that her phone had no dial tone—did some mowing and gardening, and then I dropped her off at her parents’ place before I headed to Maz’s.

Night

Maz’s cousin Kate was at Maz’s,Flooding of the Brisbane River at College’s Crossing and we all went to Nandos for dinner—but they couldn’t make hardly anything for some peculiar reason—so we went to Chez Tessa instead. I ended up staying up far too late, as usual.

I spent the evening at Maz’s and then stayed up way too late, messing about with the new version of my Amused site, and generally procrastinating.

I got to work on time. It is still wet. People are saying this wet weather may continue through to winter.

I had a snooze, and then a curry tofu vegetable thing from a new noodle place in Rosalie, got some petrol, and lazed about before bed again.
