Well, didn't get a lot done this morning; well, not a lot of free stuff anyhow... toying with modern bind and the like before sending my poor kitten off to be desexed. Vilya didn't know what the cage was for, found it curious at first and then started complaining about how low the ceiling was as she had to crouch lots. I'll get her back tonight all fixed up and anaesthetized for a couple of days. Just (13:45, 18th Jan) got a call from the Vet to say she's fine and doing well.

News flash: my first batch of home brew is getting better and better! It looks very dark, tastes pretty good and my housemate, latent, commented it looked a lot like Guinness. When I pulled my keg out of the fridge on Monday night to serve it up to another friend, she said it tasted pretty good too, which is always a major bonus. Anyhow, the big excitement was thet the bubbles were tiny and flowed down around the outside of the glass just like real stuff. This was made with a homebrew kit of Coopers Dark Ale. Good stuff. Unfortunately, mbp will just have to wait until next-next time he's in Brisbane to trial it. Anybody else coming to visit soon is most welcome to trial the beer.

Worst thing about this morning (10:40am 18th January, 2001) was I got hit while travelling into work. Some (now known) moron decided to turn right form the left hand lane at the Indooroopilly bus depot into the hook turn street leading to Station road... Naturally, I didn't like this being on my Honda ST1100 in the lane next to him. No indicators, nothing - well, not until the instant he started moving. I managed to survive ok, but I did a nice mickey flip/airborne roll and came off with only a few grazes and bruises to the legs. Shame the bike wasn't better off for it.

Now to the legal battle to get my bike repaired :(
