Dark was the night

Hi there, it's been a while but I think I needed a break from blogging and some time to be miserable and introspective (AND I wasn't blogging about it - why do I even have a blog?). I'm looking down the barrel of my 37th year on this mortal coil and the eternal "what am I going to do when I grow up?" question has been rattling around the brain. It seems hard to commit to a course of action and when I do it's like the First National Hurdle Association of the Universe is telling me, 'nah, that's not it.' I'm a work in messy progress...

Anyhow, the photo above was taken on a jaunt to Melbania. The main reason of the trip was to see the Tim Burton exhibition. Exhibit A: me and the batmobile...

My lord, the exhibition was fantastic but that guy's world view is bleak. Lot's of happy puppets hiding hideous monsters as well as creepy clowns - I'm sure a psychologist would have a field day in there. Melbourne also provided its requisite footy madness, great food/bars and record shopping. I also discovered some really cool functions on my camera that allowed me to take interesting photos with little to no skill involved. The cream of the crop is on my flickr site HERE.

Today is the first day of some holidays for me and I'm heading over to New Zealand for a week to see my sister. Should be fun, I haven't been there (my hometown) since 1988. They used to have a department store called DIC - I wonder if they've changed that... Anyhow, if I have any interesting adventures, I'll blog the shit out of it.
