Weekend UpdateI'm posting now because, again, I have nothing to do. I have an interview scheduled for 4pm, but have been looking for something to write for about an hour now. So short of news, I'll write here.
The paper is doing a 'Women in Business' feature this week. I've been out taking some photos and editing some copy. It's all advertising, so I have been a little unhappy about being involved, but I guess advertising is what every paper lives on, and when I've got no other work to do, there's no reason not to be involved with the 'dirty' money. That's a bit harsh, but I really don't like it.
I played Aussie Rules on the weekend which was a lot of fun, although I was a bit dirty about only getting on midway through the third quarter. Fair enough, I've never played Aussie Rules before, but I did well enough to get the 'Coaches Award'. It's nothing special; I think it's akin to an encouragement award, but does involve a free lunch at a cafe in town, so you can't go wrong there. And my hamstring didn't snap, probably thanks to coming on late in the game. :)
Last night I had the best meal in my life. It's a big call, and I thought long and hard about it, but I believe it's accurate. Treena is a legend. She's a chef, and I'm living at her house while here in 'N'. I'm not much of a cook, and all I can describe it as is fettucini with a sauce comprising sour cream, mushrooms, dried tomato (of some description), bacon, mozarella cheese, and other things I can't remember and probably wouldn't know anyway. Absolutely exquisite. And there are leftovers, which I will be eating tonight.
Looking back, Friday was not a good day, with six posts here a sure sign I didn't have enough work to do. When I was here for six weeks earlier in the year it was suggested I do a feature on myself and what I think of 'N', or an opinion piece, something. I didn't get around to it, but with no other news to write about, I think I will begin working on that.
