My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

Im going to the tip of Australia.. well damn near tip anyway!

I heading out for an adventure to Tasmania. Hobart to be exact. (did you hear the music to the 'beverly hillbillies' playing to that sentence then?). Tilda and I are venturing there for a few days. I dont know what the net service will be like, or if i will be too busy seeing all the wonderful things and capturing the culture to be concerned with blogging. So, apologies in advance if i dont update until mid next week. How will you all survive?

It's going to be cold. Its pretty damn close to the Antartica Region as i prob will ever EVER get too... simply put, I am bringing the MN winter jacket.. a scarf... 3 hats (yes, 1 of them has those ear flaps AND a little ball that shakes when i wobble my head back and forth. Mom reckons i look like a German Militant. I reckon its a fun hat.. when i shake my head. Im not sure how far the ball on top moves, but i certainly have fun being a dill). I am bringing toe socks. I even had mom buy toe socks.

Mom is going to freeze. Im sure someone will dob me in for bringing her to a place that is that damn cold. Tilda doesnt do well in cold. In fact, Tilda doesnt, never has, and prob never will enjoy the cold. I really dont mind it. When i was a child, Tilda was horrible in snow sports with me. She never really enjoyed the skiing thing, the skating thing, the sledding thing. Wait, thats not a fair comment... she enjoyed it, she just froze her little bits completely off! She was a trooper tho and hung in for as long as she possibly could. Give her credit!

So when i leave for work in the mornings, remember its coming into our winter here... well.. when i leave home at 7am.. the temp gauge says 17 degrees (celcius).. which pretty much stays that temp for a few minutes until i drive away from the coast.. then it hits to about 10 or 11 degrees. THIS IS 7 AM where i live. Where i am going, the HIGH TEMP is supp to be 17 degrees... all i know for you farenheit folks that somewhere between 50-64 degrees is the temp HIGH. the low should be about 30. THATS BLOODY COLD for a woman who has lived in the tropics for the last 7 years.

Heres hoping the MN girl comes back and i survive the bloody strong winds and the cold weather! And now if you will all pray for a moment for Tilda... Lord, give her warmth...
