end of August

i just had a fantastic 48 hour...

Saturday morning and afternoon was working counting stuff, helping Ang's dad with their stock taking...not the most fun pass time in the world, but it has that mindlessness to it that gives your brain a rest. i fell off a ladder at a point and ended up hanging from my left arm (ouch) but it was fun.
Then a rush for a rest and shower, and a faster rush to Sliema to get on the Atlantis for the "Walk the Plank" boat party.
I really enjoyed it, all of it, the company was good, the band did a great job in leading us into worship out there in the middle of St. Paul's Bay.
on our way back had a great tour of the grand harbour by night....i really want to know more about this great historical area of our island.
to Sunday.
mass in the morning, followed by the usual Sunday Cappuccino and doughnut. then a very nice BBQ at my nannu's flat over looking the sea and St. Paul's islands.
then down to the bognor (i grew up in this place :) ) for a one day billiard tournament, along with a nice amount o' beer. i lost horribly, but it was fun hanging our with my dad and some friends i hadn't seen in a while.
home to change, and back down for a one day dodgeball and the other 5 players on my team met randomly and by total coincidence to play..totally unplanned... and we got to the semi-final... :)
it's a great game, love it, want to keep playing when they organize it.
problem... during the last match took a ball to the finger, and right now, my left index finger is swelled uncomfortably, can't bend it, and can't put any force onto it... hope i'll be able to play bass soon. didn't go check it, i'm assuming it's fine and there's nothing seriously wrong with it.
then a relaxed few hours at steve's house (thanks steve and family) and home to rest my aching body.
woke up this morning with my muscles swearing at me in the own painful language.
should go edit today...and rehersals in the evening...

Tuesday, August 18, 2009 what you get

what you see...
that's it,
no large bank account,
no fancy car or cool bike,
no interesting stories or charming attitude,
just me, plain and simple,
and in a world like today's
i'm screwed

from the land of Barca: Part 2

good morning people.
wow, so much has happened, and really, as i try to think of where to begin to explain, or describe what we have seen or done, i realise that there is no way i am going to manage.
today had a nice day out...saw fishes and sharks and funny sea creatures and penguins and stuff, and walked through cittat vella without fearing someone is going to shoot me, rape me, or offer me drugs....
yesterday...oh yesterday...the inevitable happened. someone got on my's basically cause i wanted to walk to a castle a bit far away...we did eventually and i loved it....the payback? three and a half hours in a shopping mall....
sigh...all's good worries...although i found a new way to deal with anger/'s very scary according to angie and sister.
well....tonight van and g should be making omelette...and tonight...depending on the time...mojito bar...or staying in.
i go now
people wanna use computer....
and he looks like he could kill me with a punch :) in a friendly way of course...everyone is friendly here....

except the germans :S

from the land of Barca part 1

from the land of barca...
first of all...and to freak out my mum if she's reading this, my first time on the metro, some idiot tried to pick pocket me...they where not aware of my fast reflexes and sensitive spacial awareness...any way that failed...
moving on!
got to the hostel and at first, i'll admit, got scared, the place does not look appealing from out side, but i'm telling you, i love it. it's super relaxed, and you do what you want...table tennis, wii, scrabble, chess, play giutare, read in a hammock, anything...
anyway...out to lunch and relaxin around, and as we where considering going to bed, we met two people we had met earlier, a south african and a Californian and two other people,, Canadian, who where going out for a why not? and off we went, it's really easy to make friends here, and i'm trying my best to socialize with anyone english speaking...
the five of us are sharing a room with another girl, and a woman and her son (although the mum and son leave tomorrow)
this morning after breakfast we made our was to the centre again, really getting used to the transport system here... they make it easy, it's super efficient.
i survived!
i survived over two hours of shopping in a market! the girls got tired before i gave in!
then it was off to a quick lunch at a random sandwich place and to park de la ciutadelle.... i think, its spelt like that anyway...
it was very nice...a very nice fountain monument thing....with obviously, people swimming in it

whats funny is that whenever you here someone speaking english, it's like a breath of fresh air...we've had conversations, besides with the 4 people mentioned earlier, with some one irish and some one from i dont know where,.....he's a drummer. lol

last things:
bernice to me while traveling on the tram "m'hawnx hafna toqob imma ux"...
"we're on tracks ber"

and sarah is adicted to facebook....she denies it, but we know its true...

later going to shop to cook pasta here...we have the use of a kitchen :)

see you in a bit

i keep thinking i have to blog i have to blog, but i never find the time to just sit down and type,
so what better time to do it than the chaos that comes over a house just before someone goes abroad?
of course
my sister and i, along with Angie, G, and Bernice, leave for Barcelona this morning, have to be at the airport in an hour.
well the planning of this trip, was a nightmare, so many things went wrong, or where a hassle, but we got through until this wonderful day.
i'de ask you all to pray for my sister who is not in the best of health.

just before we come back, the majority of you leave for SS, and not know if i'll have internet access (eve is staying on the island) i don't know if i'll be able to tell you bon voyage at a later date, so "bon voyage" to all of you, have a great time....

speaking of great times... intercession for uni yesterday was incredible.... loved every moment of it.

i have to go dad is getting a tad hissy.
so see you in a week, or two weeks, depending on who you are.
Xmun's about to hit Barcelona.
