today featured a bush walk. That’s right, a bush walk! It was glorious. Pictures tomorrow or when I find the cable to connect it to my computer.

New dishwasher is very fancy. Mum bought it. So that means it’s top of the range. It has a ‘hygenic’ clean component and tells me how long to go. I can’t stop staring at it.

Been making lots of biscuits of late. Anzacs are the family favourite. I am not a fan. Typical.

Am addicted to WordTwist on Facebook. Spending way too much time on it. By ‘way too much’ I am estimating we’re in the ‘hours per day’ scale. Seriously. I’ve been sitting on fourth amongst my friends for weeks on end. Then tonight, I notice that my personal best is now 155 and I have no idea when it happened. And now I’m ranked first. FIRST!. Seriously. It’s like the pre-cursor to playing the polkies all day at the local r-ie.

Next to WordTwist comes Pathwords. I’m first on that too with 820 points. In a way it’s more fun than WordTwist because you can find the same word and it still counts and when you find a word worth 130 points. Oh my.

Not that I’m competitive. Or prone to obsessive compulsive tendencies of repetitive action…

But it does explain my lack of blogging. To busy WordTwist/Path-ing

The most irritating Olympic commentator comments so far:
‘She has the face of an angel and the heart of a lion’ – Bruce McAlvaney (who I actually have a soft spot for for some utterly bizarre reason) on Stephanie Rice
‘She’s little but has a big heart’ – some guy tonight commenting on a runner.
That female commentator for Channel 7 on the gymastics (I think she also does the Winter Olympics) just shits me to tears.

I hanker for a return to classic sports for the Olympics. No necessarily involving naked men, chariots or lions, but the inclusion of sports like tennis, basketball, sailing, beach volleyball (wtf?) and something I saw the other night which looked remarkably like dodgeball just shits me. Almost to tears.

Why is it that in the floor routine the gymasts don’t wear country themed leotards? I also don’t see what is particulary rhythmic about rhythmic gymnastics. Rarely does any of it go to the music, it’s all backflips and twists and flying jumps to nowhere. Impressive none the less. Almost as impressive as how badly Australia consistently performs in gymnastics overall. And why are so many of the coaches fat and ugly?
*****
Did you hear that the Chinese Olympic Committee are no longer holding daily press conferences due to the grilling they were getting about empty stadiums, over-zealous security and so on and so forth?

There’s this massive lump on my hip from where I fell yesterday. It hurts. A lot.

Chef is at a buck’s night tonight. A buck’s night! GOD next we’ll be going to someone’s 18th.

This week:
Tackle the laundry room (and the laundry pile which today blew out exponentially for some reason)
Prepare all medical reports we have for Oscar from birth to now for the new paediatrician
Make appointment with accountant
Make appointment for Grover’s (now late) immunisations and appearance of excema.
Maybe see doctor for my own suspect sinus issues that are now giving me significant tooth-ache pain
