gymkhana madness!
i ended up going down to the pub last night, got sick of sitting around feeling icky! so i cast aside all stomach woes and wandered down the road for a drink... the place was pumping! this weekend is the tibooburra gymkana, biggest event of the year. so there's lots of people in town for it, the atmosphere is cool! there's a lot of fun and love in this community, and i'm lucky to have some good people looking out for me. i'm slowly piecing together who's who and who's doing who.... all that fascinating human interaction stuff which makes life so much more entertaining for the quiet observer. ;-)

i'm home alone. with the company of moodster (the dog) and the bug in my stomach. damn it! i'd planned on going to a party up the road, a hens night for one of the girls in town. but here i am, dizzy and lightheaded with a pain in my gut! boring. that said, it's nice to have some time alone, and a good chance to catch up on some internetting.
i've just scored myself a job, at one of the 3 shops in town.. hahha... i was a little worried that there'd be no jobs going but i seem to have been lucky. we'll see how i go... i start on monday.. and i have to cook meat! the ex-vegan in me cringes. it'll be good to have some money coming in, and good also to have some routine in my days, particularly when vic scarpers off to work again for however many long weeks! and when she does i promise i'll get my pastels out and do some sketches. there are so many beautiful sights around here! did i mention that tibooburra means "heap of rocks"? the town is surrounded my these mounds of rocks, really stunning, and five minutes out of town in any direction they just disappear. we went up to Sunset Lookout a few nights ago. sat there as the sun sunk below the horizon, the colours of the land changing from brilliant oranges to dusky pinks and purples. breathtaking. and so much space!

melbourne, please take care of my friends for me. feed them poached eggs on toast on sunday mornings, and keep their soy lattes topped up. thank you, i appreciate it.
i will think of you often, and fondly.

i'm very lucky to have spent a large part of the last week or so with my darlings, sarah and leon. my brunswick family. i will miss them immensely when i go, which looks like it'll be in about a week and a half.
but i'm not going to think about that right now.. i'm going to go and drink coffee with sarah and talk about exciting plans and vans and roadtrips and straw bale houses and free hug day and banana snaps.

things i need to organise before i go:

a phone (mine won't work out there)
a camera
my tax return, argh!
where to store my piles of stuff
some drawing supplies
an SOS code..?

i'm smiling over a letter from the vicstar, it makes me miss her less and more all at once. (she's away for a few weeks working in queensland somewhere far from cell phone reception)

i'm at home today, going through paperwork, having a bit of a clean up. how do i manage to accumulate so much stuff in so little time? argh, i drive myself crazy. surely there's no need for all this stuff! i'm not sure where i'm going to store it when i leave melbourne, no sense in dragging a whole lot of stuff with me if i might not be gone for long. the desert heat will chase me away, either back to melbourne or back to new zealand or back to.. i don't know. it scares me.

sat in one of my favourite cafes with one of my favourite girls. (hello miss james, you know i'm only updating because you told me to)

sat on a jetty for a couple of hours, with a good book and the sun on my back.

sat on a colourful bench and listened to some slightly-too-hippy music while kids played a parashute game with much laughter.

sat on a tram beside a stinky man (he hemmed me in, bleurgh!!).

sat in fed square with mich and drank a beer and ate some eggplant japanese style.

sat at mario's with mich and drank a very good coffee.

sat on frey's bed and watched rove.

sat on my bed and wondered what to write.
