Assignment - Grade sheet, originally uploaded by Dr Hand.

I have decided to blog!

I haven't had a lot of time lately because I've been a very busy fellow, with my normal work, university study, and all.

I've been doing quite well with the academia, as you can see above.

Yes, I got 100% in an assignment. That's pretty good at a post-graduate level. Technically it should be an impossible task. But with a little luck and some help, I did it!

Now I'm on uni break which is nice. I have a bit of free time.

Last weekend. I went to the Gold Coast to watch the 2009 Oceania Sumo Championships.

Yes, that fat girl who was on the news was there.

The whole show itself was pretty poor when compared with the Sumo in Japan. The majority of the competitors had virtually no idea what they were doing as far as the ritualised movements went, and their obvious lack of Japanese language ability made them look rather stupid, seeing as the refs insisted on giving directions in it.

The wrestling itself was quite good though, and it was great to see such a fantastic sport in Australia. I really hope they get more coverage here, and it grows from being a very amateur thing into a professional sport.

After the sumo, I was convinced by the bunch of girls I was with to drive them to Mount Tambourine.

Being one of those awful hippy-infested little towns that pop up about the place and subsist on selling crap clothes, "healing" gems, plasticine tasting fudge, and other "arty" bull shit, Mount Tambourine has very little going for it...

except for the brewery!! Which is awesome!! The part where I had to drive home, however, not so awesome.

Pics here.

Hello LJ.

So sorry I have been away for so long.
I've been super busy with work and uni.
Both are going great and I love them, but there hasn't been a lot of time for anything else. Not even trivia!

I'm nearly finished my first semester at uni. I'll be back here a bit more regularly after that. I'd love to show you what I've made for my major assignment, but you'll have to wait until it's completed.

In the mean-time, please be content with checking out this ring I designed.

What do you think?

I have a crazy boss, who is quite a few years younger than me, and who I will call CrazyBoss.

The other day CrazyBoss was trying to plug the ipod into the work sound system thing, and she was having trouble.

Finally she connected it and said, "Got it in.. Just needed to spit on it." Then she gave me a really dirty look.

I said "... redtube?"

And she yelled. "I FUCKING LOVE THAT SITE!"

A few weeks ago we went out, and she got us kicked out of a bar at 2am for table dancing.


I totally think my friend, Eric, should marry my other friend, Jenny.. Then they can give their kids Jen Eric names..

I'm gonna be an awesome dad.

I hate these things

Djing was my first ever paid job. I started just after my 18th birthday in Joes Garage in Bathurst. Good times. That's nearly 14 years ago! I'm technically a good DJ, and I've played in some pretty interesting places, but was never a very successful, mainly cause I don't have the drive or commitment to be.

music hatin'
If you like it, I probably hate it.

The worlds greatest country.

Something I got into as a kid when my dad gave me his old asahi pentax spotmatic. I have about 7 cameras now, but that one is still my facourite. Check out my pics here.

Friday nights, MSN, whisky'n Diets, and "I LIKE TO MOVE IT MOVE IT"
I don't seem to go out on Friday nights much any more. Neither does averagesmartguy, so I guess that makes us pretty lame. I usually end up chatting to him, while he drinks and listens to shit music (which makes him more lame than me).

I don't know why, but I'm suddenly thinking about web browsers.

I use firefox, but I'm not sure why.

I suspect there are better browsers out there..

Opera? Chrome?

What should I be using?

Ps. Do you like my pic? It's a photo I took of my aunt's cat about 18 years ago... I LOLcatted it the other day.


A week in motion

Last weekend my dad came to visit us.
That was pretty cool!

Saturday we fixed my sister's hunk-o-junk car, and then went to the Nostalgia Drags at Willowbank raceway.

(No, we didn't race my sister's car there)

It was pretty cool to see all these nice classic cars TEARING UP THE QUARTER MILE!

Fastest car of the night (and my favourite) was this one. It did the quarter mile at a terminal velocity of 207.10 MILES per hour. That's over 300Kmph! In an early 60's Monaro!!

A few more pics. Drag racing is a difficult thing to photograph. The cars are moving pretty quickly, and it's dark, cause the races are run at night!

Holden Vs Fiat

Sunday we went to visit my uncle and had too much to drink. Monday was a struggle.

I had a boxing session at the gym at 6.30am this morning. Pretty crazy, cause today is my day off! Nearly killed me, but it was good fun.

Tonight I have a function to attend at the Japanese Consul General's house. He'd better give me some good booze. That's what I reckon.
