You really won't.

My surname does not lend itself to PhDs... just as well I'm unlikely to ever get one

Excuse my last post, that kanga is clearly drinking lager!

Good on your brother, though!


Also, how are you?
Cooper's brews it here, and they're the most popular brewery in South Australia, so it gets money. I have also seen some import ones, though they're not necessarily alcohol-free, but with a very small percentage, considerably less than light beer. I was looking for a sixpack of something to bring to a party once, and noticing the German name of one of these on the shelves, I picked it up! Luckily, my brother informed me it was only 0.5% before I took it to the counter. I hate to think of the reaction if I brought that to the party.

Yeah, he's feeling much better now that he drinks less. And I'm doing the same too, but rather than non-alcoholic beer I prefer juice, milk or iced tea. Doubt I'll ever really get into that stuff.

I'm good, thanks. Slept in this morning, which was a bummer. I was having a great dream though, so it's all good. Went to a Moroccan place for tea with my mum - very good stuff.

But if you're sure you'll fail, you're not feeling confident, are you? So you'll be fine... except you won't then... but then you will..

At least if you survive you can put the antlers up on your wall. You can't do that with a pouch.

This is an excellent point.

I used to live in Canberra for a few years, which is not called "The Bush Capital" without reason. Dead wallabies and 'roos and birds are a common sight along the major roads, and after the bushfires went through in... when was that, '02? Anyway, suddenly there were kangaroos EVERYWHERE, hopping down suburban streets and terrorising people.
(Well, I only heard of one woman being terrorised, and that 'roo was probably not well.)

I overheard one American telling his friend that he was so disappointed that the first kangaroo he ever saw was roadkill.

I don't know what it is, but each and every story you tell me about kangaroos is filling me with laughter. I think it must just be because I've never seen a kangaroo, and for it to be such a blah everyday sort of experience for you is overwhelming.

Don't get me started on the whole cavemen-weren't-living-in-dinosaur-times thing...

Of course cavemen weren't. They're his younger brothers and sisters.

You dreamed you had Morroccan for tea?

Erk, you just reminded me of the dream I had last night. There were people from work in it...!

Sleeping in...

Hell, it's gone 11pm... do I heat up the taco stuff, eat it cold, or just not bother? I wanna get a decent sleep tonight...

Actually, you can use the scrotums as little coin pouches. They sell pretty well, to my understanding.
