Because vine pruning is very much a "Nice Brain; You Won't Be Needing That" kind of job my thought processes shut down between the hours of 7.30am and 4pm and generally don't bother kicking in again until jump started with the fifth or sixth cup of tea in the evening.
Add to that the fact I go to Body Pump three times a week. Everyone knows there's a direct correlation between muscle growth and brain shrinkage so any attempt to blog has been met with drooling and slight twitching.
I'm going to be a slack jawed imbecile by the time I leave Echuca.

Anyway, stuff has happened apart from being a Victim Of Crime, I just haven't been able to string coherant sentances together to tell you about it so in lieu of a well thought out and properly constructed post, you get the following drivel.

Everyone's A Fruit And Nut Case
A drunk bag lady tried to get into my car whilst I was stopped at some traffic lights in Melbourne the other weekend. I now pray to the God Of Central Locking on a daily basis.

Blonde Moment
Our car has automatic gears and as I was driving to work the other day it felt like it was dragging and not changing up. The car was really struggling, I pressed the accelerator harder envisioning huge mechanics bills, convinced it must be the gear box and even as I neared the bridge to cross into Moama it still felt like it was in a too low a gear.

It was then I noticed the large, red "Park Brake" light on the dashboard.

I released the handbrake continued on my way, wondering if I should introduce a large coffee and a sharp slap around the head into my daily morning routine.
Safety First?
I wear large tinted safety goggles at work because vines have a habit of snapping back into my face, spurs flick off and head straight for my eyeball or I scratch an itch on my head forgetting I have pointy cutting things in my hand so now I have a lovely Reverse Badger tan thus marring my perfect features.

Eyesight or that perfect all over colour? Decisions decisions.

Echuca Tourist Day Out: 13/08/06
Those of you that have been paying attention will remember that Echuca is the Paddlesteamer capital of Australia.

*waits while everyone contains their excitement*

A few of us took a ride on the PS Pevensey last weekend, We had amazing weather for it, the temperature got to about 19C and while its nothing compared to the recent UK heatwave (*glares*) can I please point out that it's still winter over here. The ride was $19 for an hour up the Murray River which serves as the border between Victoria and New South Wales although it does actually belong to New South Wales.

No Echuca Tourist Day Out is complete without homemade fudge from the Penny Arcade so we bought a slice of that followed by an ice cream and a can of coke then headed back to the hostel before our teeth fell out.

Trail Of Destruction
No one told me you shouldn't put dripping wet clothes in a tumble drier ok? The washing machine broke down halfway through my wash leaving my clothes sat in a vat of black water so I just stuffed them into the drier and hoped for the best. Anyway, I only shorted out three appliances in the process and it's not like anyone uses the drinks machine anyway...

It's also worth noting that attempting to operate laundry machines whilst under the influence of Wine In A Box is unadvisable.

Wine In A Box
Makes your head hurt.

*waves goodbye to last remaining brain cells*
