In need of some comedy.

Last night I went and saw Tim Minchin at the Comedy Festival. I first saw him in 2005 and he was the best act by far! I saw him again in 2006. And this year he played the best bits of his 2005 and 2006 shows. It was great to see his skits again. I thoroughly recommend him. He is so funny but he is also a fantastic musician! I just hope he has some new material next year.


Our house locks are changed.. my car locks are changed. I'm getting new cards and we're waiting for our insurance to finish processing our claim, so that I can get replacement items! It is so annoying though. I keep thinking I've got every card sorted.. but I'll suddenly remember another card that I need to replace. I also need to redo some of my work, which is really, really annoying. And I'm without a laptop at the moment. I keep having to get Greg to give me money, cos i have no access to our funds. And I've lost phone numbers that were stored in my phone.

Definitely not a fun experience..

Robbed again!

Yes.. the title says it all.. we were robbed again. But this time it's worse. :( This time they came in during the middle of the night, while we were sleeping. Which totally creeps me out! We didn't hear a thing!

They took my work laptop (with all my work on it *sob*), my handbag (with wallet, phone, keys, etc) and a backpack full of work books. The thing I am most upset about is the laptop because I won't be able to get my work back.

We have to get our locks changed again because they have my house keys. And we also have to get my car locks changed because they have my car key.

But the worst thing for me is that they did it while we were sleeping.

It might be time to move.... Or to get a pet lion..

Two shows for the price of one.

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival is on and last night I went to see Dylan Moran. I love his series Black Books, so when I found out he was going to perform at the festival I booked tickets. I recommend catching one of his shows if he's in your area.

Afterwards we were offered free tickets to see Dave Bushell by the man himself. He said that there was a bar at the venue so we could enjoy a drink while watching his show. He also said that the bar was awesome. So we thought it would be fun to see a free comedy show with drink in hand. When we got to the venue the door man also mentioned how great the bar is. So by this stage I was expecting an awesome venue with an awesome bar. When we got to the bar we found it to be a table with one bottle each of red, white and bubbles and beer. hmm.. A table isn't a bar! As for the venue it was a art gallery. So by this stage we're thinking.. what did we get ourselves into? But we were there.. and the gig was free. So we got a couple of drinks and we were led downstairs into the basement. But the show actually turned out to be ok. It was slow to start but once he got going he was pretty funny.

Greg bought a Wii with his birthday money and it's heaps of fun! Though after playing tennis for hours, I had a sore arm for a couple of days!

Easter holidays.

Over Easter Greg and I went to Port Fairy, staying at a fantastic cottage called the Stitch 'n' Quilt Barn Bed and Breakfast. After a hectic trip around Europe we decided that we needed a relaxing holiday. Which is exactly what we got. :) We did lots of reading and eating. We walked around Griffith Island and Tower Hill. And the weather was fantastic so we went to the beach twice, where we read and swam.

I just wish that we could have stayed a little longer..

Start of holidays.

My holidays started with a weekend away in Dromana, staying with friends at a friend's holiday house. We began with drinks and a picnic outside by candle light - and turned off all power indoors as part of Earth Hour. We also did some walks, went to a winery and relaxed outdoors.
