It’s been a while since I’ve done a purely (almost) personal blog

The goddamn heat at the moment is being a real bitch at the moment. Slowly, bit by bit, I’ve been getting more and more things to do and with the current heat wave, it’s really hard to do anything but sit around and bitch about the heat. That or blog about how damn hot it is.

Actually, I’ve been doing a lot of long distance driving in the last few weeks and most of it during the day. Actually, by some internal clock coincidence or something, most of this driving has been occurring when the sun is at just the right angle so that no matter which direction up or down from Hamilton I’ve been driving, there’s well enough sunlight on the drivers side to give me a tan on just my right arm. So now my right arm is quite darker than my left and I’m starting to feel a bit like Harvey fucking Two-Face and a lot less like Batman, which is causing quite a complex for my motives in fighting crime at night.

Anyway, over the weekend, I drank and saw off my friend Cameron who’s now taken off to live in Melbourne, Australia for the purpose of well, to be in Australia. It was about as close to a spur of the moment act as any act of changing lifestyles can be. Just short of grabbing a passport, burning your house to the ground and leaving an intricate puzzle that’ll stump investigators for decades. Cause that’s how I’d do it and so would Batman.

Anyway, I wish him the best of luck in his hunt for buried Nazi gold and we can follow his travels along in his blog at
