Back in Brisbane again, I go about my daily life, have Kara visit, & watch “Sherlock Holmes”.
It rains, I get my car unwarped, fail to climb The Steamers, Lock ‘n’ Load with Kristin, watch “Up in the Air” & have potential flatmates.
Bronwen pulls apart computers & Ned has an entire Arnott’s Family Assorted biscuit packet to himself, but fears it may not be enough.
I gain a sore eye, a very rich cheesecake, & two of Germany’s loveliest as flatmates.
I attend the ophthalmologist, Umart, curry, rain & pizza.
Ophthalmology, Alice in Wonderland, a kilo of peppermint creams & the St. Patrick’s Day parade, along with a new keyboard for my phone.
I watch “Welcome”, “A Hurt Locker”, & some comedians, before getting a sore throat, calling in sick & driving through the Clem7 tunnel.
I am annoyed at the lack of enforcement of road rules, cut myself on a can, & watch Kara play with Queensland Wind & Brass.
I’m furiously angry, filled with quiet, subdued, rage - ironically, not at the police who I failed to evade, but at my work, Bronwen, & Valerie. & it’s all because I was trying to get fit.
I’m depressed, dangerous & go to Bunnings. The Earth has an hour, Bronwen & I have Hungry Jacks, attend APT6, drive Kara to the airport, and decide to be positive—not to mention, buying German bread & seeing the doctor about my eye.
I climb the great pyramid amidst apple cider whilst my flatmates sail the oceans, before technical issues cut short my holiday—& regularly my sleep—& I return to work. Then, it’s Kick-Ass.
In hindsight, there was a Music Kafe, very few people at work, Sabine arrived home, Bronwen bought surround sound & Valerie, Kara & I went to a nudist beach, after the markets.
I hunt green fleas, meet Sabine’s fiancé, watch “The Book of Eli”, clip hedges, brighten my car & see “Ma Baker’s Tonic”, amongst curry puffs, spring rolls & homemade lemonade.
I flash phone ROMs, watch “Titanic”, fight Paypal, visit Paddington Fair, rummage through suitcases & tell the best joke ever.
I am sick, watch The A-Team, meet Sabine’s boyfriend, & am sad when Sabine leaves.
I get a brainstem infection, 20 bread rolls, two LED torches, & there is a lunar eclipse & lots of fire twirling.
I visit the Go Between Bridge, Kara is sick, & my car is re-tired.
I drive, eat, wreck my mirror, watch Knight & Day, & Sabine returns.
I replace my car mirror, say goodbye to Sabine, show people my rooms, watch Inception, & go to the wreckers.
I hurt my eye, see the doctor, argue politics, fall sick with a pressurised head & Valerie returns.
Valerie comes again, It Takes 2 to Tango, I see Clint, “Salt”, & Buderim & Bronwen’s Grandfather.
I get hayfever, shoot people with paintballs, & it floods.
I attend “Earthlings”, “Remix”, the West End Markets, several cheap takeaway places, & Bronwen gets a new laptop.
Bronwen & I shoot zombies at the Brisbane Zombie Walk, eat Thai, visit Maz, & it storms.
My horse wins, Amy & Blaise attempt to break in, breaking the door, & the police are called.
I fix the broken front door, look at cameras, eat cheesecake, go driving, stay up all night, buy tickets to Sydney, & attend Handel’s Solomon at St. John’s Cathedral.
