Gympie Muster 2013

The weekend before last, I was lucky enough to attend the Gympie Music Muster for 2013, with my good friend Bel. Bel is a radio announcer extraordinaire, and her station was one of the major sponsors of the event. They had a competition on the radio, and we joined the winners on a bus down to the event…drinking several of these:

I wasn't drinking the Bundaberg Rum (not a rum drinker) but was indulging in some vodka, lime & soda UDL's.

We stopped for lunch at the Cooroy Pub (delicious but filling chicken panini), and eventually arrived at about 3pm'ish (mid afternoon some time). We made our way in, and after making a detour to get the coolest rings ever at one of the stalls, set ourselves up at the Blues & Roots bar. [...]  read more

Get my muster on

Today I'm going to the Gympie Muster, a country music festival held in a location where we joke the people have two heads.

I got a free ticket thanks to a good friend who works at a radio station. I have never been to the muster before, so I'm excited about the unexpected (I've heard the people watching is great; new website “the people of the muster” maybe).

Tomorrow I will be sure to post some hilarious pictures! Stay tuned!

Plan to take over the world: Honest customer service day

Working in customer service, there are days when you hate customers. Not just a mild dislike “bad day” kind of feeling, more like a “OH MY GOD YOU MAKE MY BRAIN HURT WITH THE SHEER LEVEL OF STUPIDITY THAT YOU ARE DISPLAYING, I AM MORE DUMB FOR HAVING SPENT TIME ON THE PHONE WITH YOU” rampage kind of feeling. When curse words just spew forth from your mouth, so much so that your mother tries to grab for the soap to wash your mouth out but there's not enough soap in the world. [...]  read more

Oh get your mind out of the gutter…I was talking about a bike! My new bike!

I recently agreed to ride 100km at the end of October with a friend in Melbourne's “Around the Bay” bike ride.

Because I'm in insane.

As part of that, I figured I should maybe look at buying a bike, since its a little bit necessary and all. On the actual day I will be riding my friend's bike so I don't have to fly mine down, but it wouldn't hurt to train so I don't die from the sheer pain of my ass on a bike seat.  [...]  read more

Getting some fitness back

Before I get into the reason for this blog post, it's become apparent I really need to start taking some more photos again so that my posts can actually have something visual attached. Something from my own life! It would be a little more interesting, no?

So how are things with me? On the up in a very good way. I've gotten back into training again 3 times a week, while running on the other days with a break on the weekends (although I try to be active if I can). The first few weeks were tough, mighty tough. Thankfully my body has started to get back into the swing of things and I'm able to push myself harder with each session.  [...]  read more
