I miss Edinburgh

I feel awkward saying something about Damon - I would like to have attended his funeral ceremony. I realise I didn't know him as well as some people did (like Chris, or Trina), and I don't want to pretend like I did.

My last memory of Damon was when I visited Chris before I went overseas. He had a bum-bag with an auto-doser giving him drugs, which had something to do with a recent injury he had sustained. It didn't seem to slow him down much though, and thats kind of the way I have always thought of him. Always moving, doing something exciting, bouncing off the walls constantly.


Its been a lazy weekend.

Friday I had a frustrating job, which I will have to revisit on Monday morning.

Jess's new hard disk should also turn up, which means she'll soon have her laptop back.

Finally washed my car, tried to take the door trim off my work car (to fix the winding mechanism) but gave up on getting the winder off - looked up how best to do it but by then it was dark outside. I don't have the luxury of a floodlit garage [yet] so I'll leave it till the morning.

I'd like to know if its possible to wire up a 3.5mm audio extension lead to the radio in my car, I might have a sniff around some forums on the net. I don't use the CD player (it won't play burned CD's) so I'm thinking I'd like to wire up a lead so I can plug in my mp3 player to output to the speakers in the car. I don't imagine it being spectacularly difficult.

This week I'm determined to look through the requirements of Jess's visa and go through the stuff that pertains to me. I'm on Secondary mines again this week but I don't think there's enough work around to warrant sending me out.

Ho hum, life goes on. No books that I've read recently. I find it increasingly difficult to stay focussed on any particular book, fiction or non-fiction. Maybe a good sci-fi book? News, as always, remains what I read the most.

That is all.

oh yeah i remember that! he managed to get himself totally nailed by some infection from nearly drowning and swallowing a bunch of dirty water while trying to surf, and yeah had to wear that thing to constantly pump in antibiotics. nuts!

when a death occurs in the grey area of your circles its often difficult to qualify what you feel, let alone what you should feel. i say just go with what happens and remember what you can.

Well, the only other major thing I remember of him is when we all stayed at the same hotel on the Gold Coast for BDO 2001. I remember he and Trina having a *huge* fight in the back of the car; and then the next day at BDO, Emma and I had an even bigger fight over something trivial (and Paris was off his head on speed for most of the day). The fight led to our first "break-up". We got back together after about a month or so.

The hotel was awesome, though.

With regard to my feelings, I'm just sad that I'll never get to meet him again.
