I miss the album of The Streets that Alison had, ’cause it’s different than the one that everyone else has. Better flow to it, or maybe just the flow that I’m used to. The “other” album isn’t as appealing. One of the good tracks is on the radio right now. Amazing how memory works.
In Australia, there are no pennies. Prices are still listed to the cent, and rounding is done when all your products are added at the register. This leads to situations like today: A can of one beverage for 98c or a can of a different one for $1.02. Buy one can, and both cost the [...]
Today, Michelle and I went out to get free plants from the local community. On our way back, we saw 34 caterpillars, all walking head to tail, in one long line. Big hairy ones, all about the same size, they were moving so very slowly. It was pretty incredible, and neither of us had ever [...]

A beautiful Sunday… Actually, it’s Tuesday. Interview yesterday went really well until availability and visa talk came around. Visa specifically. They want me, but they want me to be available full time for a year or more. That’s OK, ’cause I got another callback this morning from an agency. Means someone will be doing some [...]
