stomping, fire and sweating and greys

Last week Voodoo and I skivved off training and went to see The Stomp Company - Lost and Found Orchestra showing at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Sydney Festival 07. It was fantastic - an assault on the sense with all the instruments made from found objects, bottles, pipes, trolleys. High production values and great music and entertainment value, especially when it was free! hehe!

On sunday we had our OC regatta up in Ettalong (on the central coast of NSW), and it was HOT. Try paddling in 40 degree dry heat for 1.5hours. Lucky this time I applied the 30+ sports sunscreen all over this time and so far haven't gotten burnt. The water was ice cold though, maybe 20 degrees. Jpeg's cousin is visiting from fiji and he couldn't believe how cold it was. I hate that bathwarm water they have in the sea over in Fiji, there's no relief from the heat. Nothing beats the heat like the ice cold ocean. I love it when it's so cold it takes your breathe away and makes your skin tingle and then you have to get out and lie in the sun to warm your body up again and then you plunge yourself back into the ocean when it gets too warm. That's one of my favourite parts of Sydney summer! But i digress.

Hot dry winds are ideal for bush fires and on the way back from the regatta we were coming back on the F3 and drove through a fire that was just starting in the national park near Berowra. The fire had jumped on the median strip and the bushes flared up just after we passed. We were lucky - the freeway was closed after we went through.

Just a note: I have finally finished season 2 of greys anatomy. I was living in a half reality for most of last week. Everyday I'd have to get my hit of 'greys' either before training, after dinner or on the weekend. It's seriously addictive and I'm glad there are only 28 episodes and not like 50 otherwise I would become a social recluse.

fish icecream

This is one of my fave snacks from the SPAR supermarket down the road at work. It's a fish icecream. No it's not fish flavoured it's just fish shaped wafer with vanilla icecream and red bean filling. $1.10 , which is cheaper than an overpriced magnum (although i do love that almond one!)

and yes i only decided to blog about this because Jaysun mentioned that all i do is blog about how much i eat. WOOO! What ELSE is there to blog about :P

Hello 2007!

Like Hello. Welcome to a fab new year everyone!Been rather slack on the blogging lately but there's so many things i'd rather be doing than sitting here typing in front of this here computer! So many projects i want to do so little time and energy actually!

Holidays were fun - lots of eating sleeping resting playing shopping (try a 10 hour expedition to WBJ! that was my post xmas feed workout haha) Hope yours was as good.

Here's some random photos from the last week.

From top left: Mean Girls up to mischief on tour in Cairns - that's us after our bungy jump off the 50m tower and yes that's me in wet shirt after being dunked up to my waist at the bottom of the bungy! Leah at work having her 'monica' moment when the tube of coconut body lotion she was sniffing opened up from the not-so-sealed end as a result everyone in the office smelt like pina coladas. One Paul's hamburger with the lot down in Sylvania delish! KittyKat with her frangipani lei (belated happy bday candy girl!)Paul's hamburger sign - they are only open from thursday to sunday - which means they must make enough money to have 3 days off a week (what a life!), Bennifer eating his burger.
