Just had a scheduled power outage. I thought I'd use my wireless modem to connect to the internet. Ended up using 20% of the battery and an hour of my time with tech support getting the thing going. Then before the process was complete, the power came back on. Irony.

As in "she was squealing at every crossing"? The girl in front of me saw things blurry and couldn't see depth; that got her scared a lot because she couldn't prepare for landings. Guy behind me only saw dark and light and didn't have any trouble besides the hook fiddling.

It's like a luna park, but in nature. Little platforms attached to trees are connected by wobbly bridges, and on a few occasions, just a cable. You are always attached to a safety cable and basically have to do a lot of climbing, balancing and crawling. And, in a few cases, make an instant cable cart. Whee!

Dad and I went to The Hague, walked around, visited grandma, went to the beach. I have a real bad headache now.

Now I get it. Is this just a Dutch idea? When I Googled survivaling I didn't get very far.

I've got my marks now. I just missed out on credits for my two maths courses (61,62) but I got a distinction for physics (78). I'm pretty happy about the physics result but I need to rethink my time management for the maths because I didn't make best use of the available assignment marks.

Doubt it's Dutch... it's probably called "climbing" or something similar elsewhere.
(gets on Wikipedia)
Ah, try Adventure Park or "ropes course".

A friend of my father's was travelling to an island near Malaysia on the same day - fortunately he was on a different plane. Among the casualties are some renowned AIDS researchers who were on their way to Melbourne for a congress, and a Dutch senator and his family.

Also shocked to see some people with the name Ploeg on the list; it's a rare name, they might've been family.

ha! here also. You won't hear me complain though.
The western half of the state is in a record drought. Where I am is just barely out of that.

Also last winter was mild, not too cold, for too long, with plenty of snow over the season.

In May here, temps ususally shoot up and then gradually get higher and higher over summer.
July and August are almost always brutal. But June and Spetember are often just as bad.
Not this year. Everything stayed mild all spring and well into summer.

Today is the first day we will reach near 37C.
Must get out and get my errands done before the heat arrives in waves.

Stay cool!

Drop me a line when it reaches 45C. I'm enjoying Adelaide winter right now, but I'm generally happy once it gets below 30C.
