Ooh, I just remembered another awesome sword, also from India - the urumi! It's like a whip sword.




Look at this fellow work a couple of them:


Intense.
OUCH!

Reminds me a bit of this:



The nine-section whip from China, one of my favourite weapons. I really, really want one - the ultimate in portability and offensiveness.

I don't think I'll ever shake the Kiwi dance/chance pronunciation, or my use of the schwa in words like grown/mown/thrown that turns them into two syllable words. Thank goodness for that!

Cambodia is AMAZING. Such a beautiful place and people, and such a sense of hope. I really want to go back there again someday. It's worth backpacking to for a couple of days, actually.

I'll be interested to see what you make of my accent, whether it's Aussie or Kiwi. I know some people in the last couple of years haven't guessed I'm Kiwi until I've told them, but others - including, if I remember correctly, Ali - still think I clearly speak like a Kiwi. Personally, I equally notice Kiwi and Aussie accents in other people as they both seem normal, and spot some very distinctive aspects of the Kiwi accent in my own speech.
I'm usually really good at spotting accents, so I will analyse your speech carefully, mwahahaha!

Saddo, you wouldn't happen to learn a martial art, would you? If you do, what is it? I'd be quite wary when meeting you...

I don't, actually. I'm not a violent person, but I have a fascination with pre-modern warfare. I box to stay in shape, that's about as close as it gets.

You know, normal people go for runs or work out at the gym. I'll be careful around you.

As for me, I'm more worried about keeping my brain in shape.

One of these days when I have a lot of money, I totally need to get out there and see a lot of stuff. Cambodia's definitely on the list.

How much do you know about the Kiwi accent? Because my form of the Kiwi accent identifies me as being from a part of the country that I actually have only spent a few days in.

I walk a pretty fair distance most days, which is a little less violent. But you might want to be on your guard anyway. Just in case. Besides, I thought you would have figured that I'm not "normal" by now!

I really should walk more. I think I finally have incentive - walking up and down the tram line, photographing the passing trams.

FUCK I'M SUCH A NERD, I KNOW.

FUCK YES. Melbourne's temperatures for the upcoming week are being revised down. Tomorrow (well, today) will be 32 (which is actually a revision up from 30), then 36, 36, 30, 26, 21, 23. Bring on Thursday and Friday next week.

I'm pretty sure that none of us could possibly come under any definition of "normal" anywhere, except possibly on undiscovered alien societies or communities that lived hundreds of years ago.

Nobody's "normal"... one of the most poorly-used/abused words evar.
