Case in Point

A couple of things happened today.
  1. I went to Centrelink and changed to Austudy. The lady I see is nice enough, but has no heart...
  2. Went to the garage and picked up my fixed car
  3. completed my tax return
None of that is very interesting except that my car just needed new points (but they also did timing and regapped spark plugs...). Still not interesting... but if I'd known that I could have done it myself. Instead I paid a mechanic $40. He actually never called me and said, "This is what it needs, want me to go ahead with it?" Then I could have politely declined, snuck in in the middle of the night, done it myself and drove my car away... Well, actually I probably couldn't have. Thanks Mr Mechanic dude.

I'm getting Athens fever. Evidenced by an increased heart-rate due to the excitement of seeing the SBS coverage program (I haven't even looked at Seven yet). This is followed by a cold sweat of fear about the conflict in attaining an education, while at the same time watching every minute of Australia at the Olympics. This goes in cycles and includes a mental rescheduling of my entire life around night-shift sleep patterns...

Sport is not everything, sport is not everything.....sigh.
