Tons of stuff this week, so bullet points it is.
We didn’t win anything in the 48 hour film contest. I’ve written something, but it’s got lots of bitching, so maybe, maybe not.
We moved in to our new house in Mt Nebo. It’s fantastic. We’ve been literally up in the clouds.
The carpet in half of the main room came up, as did the carpet gripper strips around the sides. Much, much better.
We bought a high definition TV set (Palsonic 76cm) and decoder box (DGTEC 2000A). After the initial decoder’s sound died the day after we bought it, it was replaced, and all has been good since then. We’ve seen amazing quality on crappy movies, on the ABC’s Gardening Australia, and right now we’re watching The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Not the full, full widescreen, and an annoying logo, and ads (nooooo!), and not the extended version, but the quality is stunning. It’s just amazing. So happy Australia went HD instead of multichannel, as I don’t trust the Australian commercial networks to create anything uncrap. But I do trust a few of them to buy nice cameras and good movies.
Today I’ve fed King Parrots from my hand, on our back deck. One sat on my hand. On our back deck. Cockatoos, lorikeets, too. A happy purchase of wild bird seed funded that.
Our crap is slowly making its way from boxes into cupboards and wardrobes. Slowly.
I’ve been unwell. Achy, headachy, tired in the bones. Feeling maybe better tonight, but I won’t make the 1am finishing time of the movie, nor would I choose to. There’s a mega-fest planned when the extended part 3 is released nearer Xmas.
We’ve got a new, comfy bed. Arrived after I felt ill, so that’s not the bed’s fault. The bed is peerless, faultless and soft.
Today was a job application. One of those long government Selection Criteria jobbies. Let’s see. At least they’ll acknowledge the application, unlike the countless seek.com.au advertisers.
I’m hot and sick now, so I’m going to bed. Alas, not even an hour into the lovely picture on the screen, but what I have seen is very much appreciated.
