Loz Cola


I thought I was dying last night, I had the severest stomach cramps. I hobbled around the house in agony until I reached the precious pain medication. When I woke up this morning there was just the smallest twinge. How odd. I'm thankful.

In other news, I can't believe it's the 23rd of November again. On the 23rd of November 1993 I left England for Australia. I always celebrate this as the day of my new Australian life (even though we didn't land on Australian soil until almost three days later *time differences and a 12 hour wait in Hong Kong*)

I've now been in Oz 11 years. That's a year more than Britain. And I have to say it, I love Australia, I do... but for the longest time I've wanted to go back to England and tour Scotland and Wales (I tend to think of Ireland as its own country, despite Northern Ireland supposedly being a part of the Union... meanwhile Scotland and Wales don't get this luxury - hah). I feel like it's something I have to do... but I can't afford it and I shan't for many years to come. This depresses me.

On the positive side, I'd never have got a University education in England, lord knows where I'd be living, and I'd probably never have met any of you - so I'm still thankful for this Australian life.

It's like that drug trip I saw in that movie when I was on that drug trip.

I like this line because not too many episodes later Fry emphatically states that drugs are for losers *grin*.

Well, it appears I have finished my final assignment. Now I just have to go photocopy some things and hand it up. Shame it takes an hour and a half to get to Uni.

Yay! Done!


I can't say anything for the mark I'll be getting, but what the hey - I've finished. No more stupid University for me until... until... next year! My Bachelor of Education course.

Now to continue looking for a job.

The Simpsons

Is it just me or is the latest season of The Simpsons sort of "going back to how it used to be". They keep bringing back elements they introduced 6-7 years ago, and playing up on the fact Bart, Lisa and Maggie are actually children.

Have to say I loved it when Homer drew his self portrait.

The thought that you're actually not needed or missed is just a little bit depressing. You make the mistake of assuming that when you come back someone, anyone, will actually notice. But you're wrong. In fact, no-one gives a damn. And you think they should, at least a little. Just a little. Just a tiny amount. But actually you know, the world moves on, you're not the centre of the Universe and you never will be.

Makes you wonder, really... what was the point? Might as well have given up months ago.
