First, they pick a man who is soon to be married, on the assumption that he is a Most Brave and Humble man, capable of enduring anything.
Then, they take him out on the town for some drinks and hijinks. As part of this, the man must be dressed to impress.
I participated in one of these today... in honor of a man named Zan. Pictures are HERE
Step 2: wait for credit card reward points
Step 3: redeem points for vouchers
Step 4: buy TV
Step 5: notice TV is $50 cheaper the next day and go back for a refund on that $50.
Step 6: enjoy widescreen TV that only cost you $60, and half a year's salary in travel expenses. *smile*
Saw a quirky Japanese movie yesterday though. It's called "Stereo Future" and follows the romance of an aspiring actor and his girlfriend (a translator). It was entertaining enough, probably because I was sick. hehe. Its a slow movie, but a decent mix of comedy, drama and romance.
Also, I see Google Talk has been released. Looks like a viable alternative to skype, except that there's no audio chat for non-windows users. :(
I couldn't let the whole day be a waste, though, so I took all our Myer vouchers and headed to the shop! Yay!
Anyway, here's hoping I'm well enough to go to work tomorrow. I hate the sneezing and coughing. :(
I just saw a TV ad where a company offers to not just mow your lawn... they will also weed your lawn...
Nothing special... except I just had a thought: if they weed my lawn... there wouldn't be anything left to mow. :)
Well, my birthday came and went, and it was the best birthday ever. :) I am so blessed with family and friends it is amazing!
I think it is a compliment to the city of Seattle to point out that even though the state of Washington has 6 million people, it doesn't feel any more stressful or unsafe than Western Australia, with a population of 2 million.
Just wanted to point that out.
In other news, its my birthday in one hour. I'll be putting a pre-order in for a Sony PSP (can you believe they haven't come out in Australia yet?!)... as such, I've been browsing all manner of websites for game reviews and info. The wife and I decided my first game should be Everybody's Golf (aka Hot Shots Golf)... it looks like good, simple, pretty fun. I briefly considered Ridge Racer, but I decided that I won't buy a racing game until GT4 Mobile comes out. :)
Enough geek talk... its time to do the dishes.
Compared to the original picture, Porscha stands out much more clearly. Not entirely sure if that makes this a good picture, though.
(I only blogged cause Sam made me... but the cat is cute)
Porscha didn't come home last night. I was worried. She came home this evening though. Little bugger.
Oh, and tonight, completely on a whim, we went up to Kings Park at night to take pictures of the city. Pretty...

Obi-Wan: "Only Sith deal in absolutes"
Hmm... much to think upon, there is.
