I took a taxi to my first interview in Tuggeranong this morning and wound up doing the navigating. For readers in Perth it was like having to show the taxi driver how to find the Mitchell Freeway. Granted it was the driver's first day on the job but even so...
I caught the bus back.
2. There is a fault with the hot water system which (hopefully) will be fixed by the time I get home (any bets on that? Especially given that the plumber has to go get a part).
3. I know I shut the work PC down properly on Friday in preparation for the power outage yesterday. Didn't help, box was fried this morning.
And that was Monday. I wonder what the rest of the week will be like...
However I spoke to dalekboy a little while ago to get the details of the walk-in clinic he and shazgirl use - I might try to leave work early to go there by taxi this evening (I don't think riding more than the basic commute is a particularly bright idea right now)
I'm basically agreeing with seawasp on this one - at the moment dreamwidth is looking to me like a solution in search of a problem.
In other news I'm getting really tired of being sick - I should have been working this weekend (for that matter I wanted to work this weekend) but just couldn't face it. I'll go in tomorrow but I'll be trying to book an appointment to see a GP as early as I can in the week.
Based on my discussion with Michael I think this means that the bearings are shot and the dynamo is a writeoff. For the moment I'm going to fall back on the helmet light whilst looking at replacing the lighting system with a hub dynamo in the left wheel.
*Given that I've had the dynamo for the better part of 4 years out of it isn't that much of a surprise really.
Due to certain recent activities I sort of forgot to book a hotel room for SwanCon.
Not expecting much I checked WotIf and sure enough there was nothing shown as available. So, just in case, I called the hotel and discovered that they had a cancellation just this morning. I'll check in tonight.
Oh it's good to be me sometimes. :)
Actually the flight to Sydney was pleasant and customs etc was relatively painless (cleaning the tyres of the trike being an essential ingredient for this). I've also showered and gotten into new clothes (and this is but one of the many reasons for my being a member of the Qantas Club).
However I've already been up for about 14 hours and I've still got a 4-5 hour flight to Perth plus a taxi ride with the trike in tow to come...
In other news I didn't do much yesterday beyond walking around buying stuff like a card reader so I can transfer photos to the laptop. It was a long day the day before so I didn't really feel up to much more than that.
Right now? It isn't raining and I'm hoping that it will rain again enough to clear off tomorrow.
