Well, this morning I won't even bother to tell you what time I got up as you can probably guess.

Today was a good day as the banks were open and I was planning to go down to my local branch and get some cash out on my credit card (dont' worry mum, I pay off 100% every month) to tide me over until the cash had transferred into my Aussie account.

On reaching for my credit card, recollection kicks in, once again... bar... bar tab... card behind the bar... me drunk.. card still at the bar! Bugger! So before I could do anything I had to wander up to the Arizona Bar again and go and collect my credit card, sadly, this is not the first time that this has ever happened to me!

A little while later I was $400 richer, my car parking was paid (hurrah!) and things were looking a whole lot rosier.

I had a few mundane things to do, like washing and stuff, I collected a parcel from reception, this was my Satellite phone - it's bloody big! (well compared to my normal GSM phone). I found out who my nearest dealer was so that I could set up an account, I discovered that it is a couple of guys working out of a Regus (serviced office providers) office and that they weren't back at work until next Monday... bloody cheek!

A little while later I trickled across the road to the Internet café, and here I am! I'm bloody hungry so I think I'm gonna go and get a $5 steak and mash from Scruffy's, very soon!
