Ho-hum...

It has been a boring, bland week for me. Work, work, work. None of the hustle and bustle I have experienced back during the holidays wherein I had to be somewhere almost everyday for parties, drinking, parties, and more parties!

I have been in the market for new books recently. Been scouring Borders for a good read and was decided to get the second book to "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" called "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" by Douglas Adams.

During the successful "Doctor Who" day/marathon that I had with my friends at my place back in the 14th, they were talking about a series of books whose first installment was released back in 1982 and the latest part of the series was released last year. After the discussion, I got curious so naturally I bought the first book of the series last Saturday. It's called "The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole Aged 13 3/4" by Sue Townsend. The whole series spans through Adrian's life, well into adulthood. It was a very funny read, subtle comedic and smart as any well-written British book can be.

I have finished reading it last night and will try and get the second installment called "The Growing Pains of Adrian Mole". If it's not available, I will have to order it in. In the meantime, I might end up getting "Restaurant" so that I have something to read over the weekend.

Bored. So bored! My holiday with Arnie at the Gold Coast isn't for another couple of weeks! Argh!

Funny that back during winter (June- August), I was saying I can't wait for summer to come. Now, it's the middle of summer (December - February) and I'm completely over it! We had over 30 degree days the whole of last week and a scorching 43 degree day last Sunday! It was too much! I was constantly wetting myself down, only to get completely dry again 2 minutes later! It was so hot to even hang around the beach! The sun was enough of a punishment for everyone!

Thank God that yesterday and today were milder compared to last week. Temperatures have been mild, between 22-26 degrees. Then, back into the oven on Australia Day (Thursday) - a massive 40 degrees!

Spring (September - November) is definitely my most favourite season...

The answer to the ultimate question... thanks for sharing your thoughts on my original post about this, Jayce :)

My ultimate question would be this:

Why would humanity create something that could cause them misery? Take your pick on this one: money, atomic bombs, religion...

Funny how you're complaining about the warm weather when here, those months are when it's the coldest we'll ever get. :D
