It's a duck pond.
Why aren't there any ducks?
I don't know. There's never any ducks.
Then how do you know it's a duck pond?

Spent a pleasant evening crawling around on the floor playing with my nephew Lionel. It's amazing how quickly kids grow up. I can remember not so very long ago he couldn't track you with his eyes when you moved.
Now, it's book at bedtime. Lionel pulled out his favourite, a sort of picture-dictionary. Open it to Toys. Where's the teddy bear, Lionel? No, those are building blocks. Where's the teddy bear? Good boy! Oh, next page? Okay. Fruit and Vegetables, Lionel. Where are the strawberries? Good boy! What's next? The Seaside. Where's the lighthouse? Good boy!
Admittedly, he has actually seen a lighthouse, which probably helped.

I'm too tired to blog. I'm almost too tired to type. Blah. And I ran out of chocolate. Sucks to be me.
On the other hand... Uh, no, can't think of anything. Shoo! Go read Dave Barry or something. A book. Read a book. Dave also writes books. Good books. Funny books. But between him and Carl Hiaasen, I'm not likely to visit Florida until after it's been submerged beneath the rising waters of the ocean for a good long while. A coupla thousand years oughta do the trick.

Working at work today. Uh, that is, I went in to the office, after several days of working from home. Natually, I took the opportunity to do a little shopping at lunchtime. Two new D&D manuals (Fiend Folio and Races of Faerun), a new Rabbi Small book (well, new to the current reprint, anyway), the Sims Superstar expansion pack (which makes how many now? Six?), and the latest shipment from my Anime pusher, including new volumes of Fancy Lala, Inu-Yasha and Noir, and the first volumes of Please Teacher (Onegai Teacher) and .hack//sign.
I'll be writing more about anime now that I have my new Movable Type (yay!) blog with categories and stuff. Watch for it!

Another grey and rainy day for Sydney, but it's expected to clear up by Sunday. Which would be nice.
Just in case it does rain all weekend, I went out and bought Buffy seasons 5 and 6, Futurama season 2, and Babylon 5 season 1 on DVD. (Grace Bros is having a sale on DVD box sets, hence the sudden splurge.) It looks like I've already watched most of Futurama Season 2, but at least now I have a nice high-quality version which I actually paid for.

Water falling from the ceiling is a pretty good indicator of rain, isn't it?
Sunday, May 11
But at least it's stopped raining.

At this rate we might as well unevolve back into fish. Or maybe just amphibians.
But there are many parts of Australia that are still in drought. Sydney is where it is, after all, because it does rain a lot here - relative to the rest of the country.

Not to mention the bout of food poisoning.
Very much not to mention the bout of food poisoning.

It's that time of month again.
I work as a programmer in the billing department of a small phone company. Our bills go out at the start of the month. And we run a sort of just-in-time development process. And there are always changes to be made. So for two or three days each month I don't sleep.
Or blog, of course.
