Rain Garden Construction Begins

Work began this week on the Rain Gardens in our street. Today was my first chance to walk down and have close look. It turns out that it's just a hole in the ground (so far), but it was still very exciting...

Apple

This is an Apple...

Apple

Today we went to the city to look at the much hyped Apple Shop. We saw a big hanging apple (could this be a Garden of Eden theme?) and lots of computers and iPods (a give Steve your money now theme).

It was very glassy, but otherwise it was just a computer shop - one which looks like a fish tank. Yuko does like the "Air", but fortunately she didn't buy anything today.

In the video below, we browse the shop and then discuss whther to change to the Mac religion...

Child Porn

Todays SMH (above) included free child porn on the front page. This newspaper has changed a lot since 1831!

Mother

We went to Mother's house for dinner and ate Thai food with chicken on the side. You can't beat chicken on the side!

Since Yuko got her new laptop with built-in wireless broadband, she can blog anywhere. So she blogged while Mother and I talked about politics...

(Sighs) Peter, how many times do I have to tell you, you _can_ beat chicken in the side. In fact, you can beat them from the side, from the front, from the back, from the top and (finally) from the bottom! BTW - long time no see!

To "Special Agent in Charge" - it's called _spelling_ - you might try it one day. But I'm assuming that you have a more urgent problem with maturity (as in a lack of....)
And Peter - indeed, long time no see. Especially as I now no longer work for Cochlear!

Yuko's Boyfriends

We went to Delhi Hutt for dinner and ordered curry.

This is not the curry mentioned earlier

But before our mouths were burned out, we discussed Yuko's boyfriends - current and past. In this video, she talks about her new Police Officer boyfriend. He's the one who helped her to get back the insurance money from her bingle in the car park.

Epitome Prom

Tara has invited us to the Epitome Prom - a party to farewell Danny and Tara who are both leaving Epitome. It's tomorrow night, but we decided not to go because we are anti-social bastards.

Mother

Mother came to dinner tonight at our filthy disgusting house. Yuko made Thai (not Japanese) curry using a secret recipe that she made up. It was very nice indeed.

Then we gave Mother a demonstration of the Wii...

Chicken

I like it when my chicken looks like a chicken, and that's how they make it at Taiki...

They also have beer that looks like beer...

Ghost Town

It was so cold today that Epitome's tables in the plaza were deserted.

Epitome Deserted

On the way back from Epitome we saw this car and stopped to gawk at it. Perhaps the poor (or green) people are moving into our humble suburb...

Card Reading Debacle

Recently Yuko bought a CF card reader at Domayne. But because of poor design, it's very easy to damage the pins when inserting a CF card - and that's what happened. Some of the pins were bent over causing the reader not to work any more. I advised her to take it back to the shop and to demand satisfaction. She agreed, so I drove her over there. I then left her to confront the shop staff alone while I went off to browse. She does this kind of thing better alone than when I'm watching.

The result... They wouldn't refund the money, but did agree to replace the device with a new one. Yuko just has to be more careful when inserting cards.

MIDI

I finally got a MIDI interface! I had to go to Turramurra Music - a shop I hadn't been to for perhaps 20 years! It still looks the same inside - just more hi-tech.

The interface worked and I was able to use my music keyboard to play my 250MB triple-strike sampled piano which resides on my laptop. It sounds just like a real (recorded) piano!

Get Ready to Be Happy

Today I got free coffee at the bistro - not just me, but everyone at work! Why???? It was to help us to get ready to be happy!

Lobster and Radish

When we went to the Fish Market last week, Yuko saw some cheap lobsters - but she didn't buy them. So today we had to go there again to buy lobsters.

While we were there, Yuko met a Radish and had a brief physical relationship...

Later, she cooked the lobsters right in front of Belinda's nose...

Then we ate them.

Epitome

They are building a roof over the balcony at Epitome. It's not complete yet, but we heard that it will also have roll-down plastic walls to shield us from the elements during cold or rainy weather. It's very exciting indeed.

Boxing

Yuko has taken to boxing in a big way. In fact, I have been humiliated by her, as can be seen from the ranking table...

Car Gawking

On our way to Epitome we saw this car so we stopped to gawk at it. Maybe the rich people are moving into our humble suburb...

MIDI

Today I tried to buy a MIDI interface to connect my music keyboard to my computer. I went to Harbour Music at Crows Nest (because it's close) but they only had one device and it was second hand and they didn't think it would work with Vista. So I gave up for now.

Instead I will have to continue using the barbarian method of entering MIDI data note-by-note using the mouse.

Taiki

Then we went to Taiki...

Fish

Today we eschewed breakfast and went to the Fish Markets with Mother for lunch instead.

Mother and Yuko at the FM

We ate at Doyles, and although we only ordered a small amount, it was too much to eat. Mother asked for a doggy bag...

All this went into Mother's doggy bag

Then we said hello to the fish...

Stealing a Tree

In the afternoon we wheeled a wheelbarrow to a nearby house and stole a potted tree from their front yard...
