18th-Jul-2011 10:13 am - Curious about your genetic stuff?
The company that I get the DNA stuff done through has a sale until Thursday, knocking a fair chunk off the price for new customers (also exchange rate is your friend at the moment). If you have a similar curiosity about genetic ancestry and a disposable income, check out http://www.familytreedna.com/

Right. So. Three months have gone past SUDDENLY. Mostly I haven't been writing anything because work has been a bit of a disaster area. I've been working long hours and using my social brain a lot (stupid meetings), so when it comes to night time, I'm basically wrangling, cooking, settling Hamish and then passing out, or at least staring like a drooling moron at the screen with no spare words. Cooking tea that is. Not cooking Hamish. I've always known that being tired and busy eats my ability to be creative, but apparently I neede re-reminding.

i'm doing something very important!Collapse )

Most insane thing in the last three months: "I draw an elephant. *scrawls a scribbly blob* Ooops! I drawed a tiger!"

Photos galore! - March, April (including SCIENCE! and Dinosaurs Alive) and May
3rd-May-2011 04:48 pm - Dungeon Crawl: A New Hope
I can't make this, but other folks might be keen :)

Wednesday, May 4 8:30pm - 11:30pm

At Dungeon Crawl, we love D&D. But we're not one-dimensional nerds, oh no! Our geekery is much more multi-faceted.

We also love Star Wars.

For our next monthly foray into the world of improvised comedy role-playing, Richard McKenzie will learn to speak bocce and Ben McKenzie will trade in his Dungeon Master's cloak for some Sith robes as we ditch the magical medieval fantasy tropes of magic swords, dragons and spells for a completely different world of lightsabres, rancors and mind tricks in a galaxy far, far away!

Featuring guest Jedi rebel scum Scott Edgar (Tripod), Clem Bastow (3RRR, The Vine, Zombie Shuffle), Adam McKenzie (Watson) and Aamer Rahman (Fear of a Brown Planet), plus assorted smugglers, stormtroopers, droids and muppets engaging in all kinds of scum and villainy!

Show starts at 8:30; tickets $15 on the door or $14 at bellaunion.com.au:


Plus, stick around after the main show for a screening of the hilarious Aussie Star Wars fan films, Suburban Knights and Suburban Knights Episode II: Death Crush!

Now back to slaving like a mad thing
<muppets>The con-tinuuuuing storrrrrry...</muppets>Collapse )

Most insane thing he did this month? Stuffed dry biscuits in the toes of his sandals, between his feet and the sole.

These are getting a bit harder to write, because the urge is there to just list all the cute conversations we have had, but that feels a bit lame. So I just thought I'd say thanks for the feedback people give in real life and online that they are enjoying things :) At some point I might stop doing this, because it will go from being a journal of Hamish's development to stalking him, but that day is yet to come.

Speaking of stalking...
17th-Jan-2011 03:30 pm - You didn't miss it
No Hamish entry for December - the end of December and start of January did not go very well, so I didn't get around to writing one. I'll do a double-episode at the end of January.

There are a billion photos from around christmas tho: http://gallery.arsimagica.net/gallery/823
22nd-Nov-2010 02:17 pm - State election
Remember when voting this weekend that Ted Bailleau was Jeff Kennett's real estate agent when all the schools and other public facilities were sold off. Not sayin' that I like Nanny Brumby and co as an option, but voting should always start from the bottom with the most evil.
5th-Oct-2010 01:57 pm - Month 25 - "atta batta shoes"
A multitude of things!Collapse )

Delectify your eyes

EDIT: "Atta" appears to be 'other', based on further attempts to communicate.
aren't you tired of me going on and on?Collapse )

Level 2 stats: 12.15kg (up from 10.7kg at 18 months), and 87.5cm tall (up from 85cm at 18 months). I'm a bit surprised to find he's that much short of 13kg, and I would have said he was 90cm. I guess that's my lower spine speaking rather than a set of scales.

There is no escape from photos but this month comes with two bonus "videos" of me and Hamish totally out of control down a slide and slightly less out of control down the same slide.
7th-Sep-2010 03:36 pm - YESSSSS
Labor + Brant + Wilkie + Windsor + Oakeshott = 76.

The least sucky answer! Hooray! Least worst outcome!
there was an old man who replaced a drive
i don't why he replaced the drive; perhaps it died.
..and so on...Collapse )

everything was working; it was half past three
1st-Sep-2010 01:42 pm - Esoteric hardware up for grabs

2) an indy, minus the cabling from monitor to machine

3) dec alpha, no monitor

4) vt100 terminal

5) 8086 :)

Feel free to offer these to anyone who might want them.
