The 26th of January is a date that causes more debate than no other public holiday around the world. Is it Australia Day? Invasion Day? Day of Morning? Who the bloody hell knows.

Seddon mashup

Pool Boy

I have moved out of the hotel I was staying whilst I recovered from my flight from England and I have now set up temporary residence at my friends house in Seddon. I had to get a trolley to help me move all my bags out of the hotel and I was grateful I never took the option to bring a third suitcase to Australia.


Manchester City, Bolton


This was my last game at Manchester City for a few weeks which was against Bolton. I gave up my seat so a friend of a friend could sit with her boyfriend so for the first time I was not sat in my lucky seat. I was actually sat behind the pitch but I did have a very good view of the goal.

Back to Manchester

I have decided after careful consideration to take a long and overdue holiday as my last was all way back in August 2008 so YES I will be returning for the start of next month.


iMac 27-inch

iMac 27-inch

I was sorting out some pictures and I realised I had never posted about loosing my mac virginity. Here is a snap of my then new iMac 27-inch with the apple keyboard for illustration purposes only as it gives you pains when you use it for a long time so I have my trusty Logitech Illuminated Keyboard plugged in ready to go. The mouse also had to go, I guess mac people do not usually work for 12 hours straight. What can I say, it is a lot faster than my laptop which overheated and died and I can run both MAX OS X and Windows 7 simultaneously which gives me the best of both world.

Citizenship Test

I took my citizenship test for immigration to Australia and passed with a score of 90% and I managed to complete it under 4mins when I had 45mins. I felt a bit sorry for the people who were already doing the test when I walked into the room and then 5mins later I was gone.


Melbourne Victory Grand Final 2007

Grand Final 2007

Friday Night I went on a office pub crawl around Fitzroy. It was a good laugh but with the walking and drinking in the heat I woke up on Saturday in a very bad way. I dont think it helped that the weather topped 100. I was supposed to be viewing flats but I felt so bad I could not more out of my flat so I just sat watching TV with the air con.


Melbourne Commonwealth Games 2006

50 Cent
