Gasses Damaging to the Ozone Layer | Mon 7th to Sun 13th Feb 2011 — Ned Martin’s Dot Org

Monday 7th February - Cancelling Things

Morning

A jovial, Aussie-sounding man from Telstra on the Gold Coast called me up and cancelled my phone, retrospective back to January 11. Considering I sent Telstra a message via their generic “contact us” box on their website Friday afternoon, I think it’s pretty fantastic customer service. I can also get a free reconnection apparently.

Afternoon

I got an email from TPG, who have also cancelled my internet, also retrospectively, refunded the difference, and waived the cancellation fee. I faxed them a letter asking them to cancel my plan on Friday afternoon, so kudos to them for also having fantastic customer service. No word from Origin Gas or Origin Electricity yet - both of whom I also faxed Friday.

Evening

Bronwen and I went for a walk through Toohey’s park, as part of my new get-fit plan, then had a nice Bronwen-cooked dinner, before bed.

Tuesday 8th February - Saffron: $134,900 a kilo

Morning

Traffic was quite bad, and I was ten minutes late for work. Bronwen rode her bike.

Evening

Bronwen and I went for a walk to Woolworths, partially for fitness, and partially to buy herbs. Saffron, it turns out, costs $1349 per 10 grams at Woolworths. Just think of how much a kilo would cost… and then wonder why people bother growing marijuana to sell? Or run gold mines? Seriously, grow saffron and join the ranks of the mega-rich! We then ordered pizza from Dominos - and sat and relaxed.

Midnight

Uh-oh, it do be tomorrow.

Wednesday 9th February - Trouble

Thursday 10th February - Blank

Friday 11th February - Sunnybank

Night

Sunnybank. So busy. So many cars. So many Asians. So many restaurants. Buzzing with activity. As busy as Indooroopilly on Boxing day!

Saturday 12th February - Bunnings, Govinda’s & Amanda’s

Morning

Bunnings to return fan controller and buy new one, which also didn’t work.

Afternoon

Govinda’s for lunch.

Night

Amanda’s for dinner, and socialising.

Sunday 13th February - Gasses Damaging to the Ozone Layer

Morning

I lazed about while Bronwen and her mum cleaned.

Afternoon

Drove to Maz’s - or his aunt’s technically - then to Nandos with Maz, then to Officeworks with Kieran and Maz, then up to Kieran’s, then back to Maz’s - and thus was the afternoon filled, with laughter and gasses damaging to the ozone layer.

Night

Drove to Bronwen’s parents’, got Bronwen, drove to Halim’s, got curry, ate curry, became satisfied, drove Maz back to his aunt’s, then Bronwen and myself home, and slept.
