01.11.2001Thursday 1 November – Math Exam

Sat two 3-hour Math exams. It wasn’t the most fun day. I won’t know the results for some time.

02.11.2001Friday 2 November to Wednesday 7 November (6 days) – Study in Cairns

I studied (in Cairns), stressed and practised having a break down. Considered a mid-life crisis but figured would have nothing left to do next time needed to stress.

08.11.2001Thursday 8 November – Physics Exam

Sat two 2 hour 40 minute physics exams. A relief to have them finished.

09.11.2001In between above and below (5 days) – Cairns and movies

Watched several movies at the theatre, generally managing to overdose quite well...ooh neck; always sit in the front row. For those technically minded people, I saw “Lantana”; “The Tailor of Panama”; “Enigma”; “Rush Hour 2”; “The Truth About Cats and Dogs”; “Legally Blonde”; “Scary Movie 2” and “Training Day”, over 3 days.
Went to a few restaurants, drank some good coffee and various other things most people do all the time, but am unable to do living in a remote area. To put it generally, spent lots of money.

14.11.2001Wednesday 14 November – Silas’s accident

Bought a Leatherman Wave (external link). While just sitting down preparing to have dinner with a friend, waiting for another friend to show, a car at an intersection nearby was violently run over by a city bus. Ended up being my friend. He was stopped at the lights, they had just turned green, and a city bus came from behind and simply never stopped. It made a nasty mess of his sedan. He wasn’t injured apart from a very sore neck. The car was destroyed. Closed two lanes of traffic and was worrying enough to require 2 fire engines. Very exciting ;–)

  I was sitting with Dale. The friend who was hit was Silas.

15.11.2001Thursday 15 November – Home from Cairns

Caught an early taxi to the airport and flew back to Cooktown. Uneventful flight, very cloudy, mildly bumpy. 8 seater Cessna Titan.

16.11.2001Friday 16 November

Back Home, it has begun to rain. Badly need it, very dry. Dustforest doesn’t sound the same as Rainforest. Taking next week off and doing nothing whatsoever. Except that which I do.

17.11.2001Saturday 17 November to Friday 30 November (14 days)
