I finally remembered to take my camera somewhere

Firstly, apologies for the lack of updates lately.

I've had plenty of time and there's probably a fair few things that have happened of late that are blog worthy. Unsurprisingly however, I have not had plenty of motivation. So you'll all just have to settle for pictures of the two things that have happened recently with my camera around:

1. Annie's Animation Birthday (ie cartoon/animation-themed fancy dress party)
2. Australian Open Day 7 at Vodafone Arena

Enjoy :)

The Optus Crew (as themselves) and Annie (being incredible)

Mr Man in Black doing his thing under the limbo stick (with some fancy looking blurring and a big gun to go with it)

Annie and I (Dragon Ball-ing)

Will (as Mario) trying to kick the ninja turtle across the room (you know, just like Mario is meant to do to get rid of those evil looking mushroom monster things - or in this case, possibly a man in black)

Some nice weather at Vodafone Arena

A new beginning

Finally back from our New Years beach trip to Inverloch. Lots of funny things happened. Mainly as a result of copious amounts of alcohol. So I probably shouldn't stick them up here.

The actual house wasn't the nicest or the most spacious, but it was close to the beach and it was comfortable - and as they say, the people definitely make the party.

I probably didn't spend quite as much time actually at the beach as I would have liked, but for the time I was there at least the surf and the weather were good.

The pictures below are roughly in chronological order.

At the beach at night. The round spots are grains of sand flying around in the wind.

The beginning of our drinks on NYE

Possibly a bit too much to drink on NYE

Still waiting for 2007 to come round...

New Year's in Inverloch

1am, 1 Jan 2007: Jon waiting in anticipation for his first drink in 12 months (at least according to him)

After everybody else had decided it was time to sleep, Eric and I thought we'd go for a wander down by the beach... Unfortunately it was a little overcast on New Year's morning - but it was definitely nice to be up and about before all the party-ers recovered from their drunken stupors

I swear this somehow looked a lot better in real life

Eric and his favourite starfish in the New Year

Anyway I hope everyone had a safe and happy time over the festive season. Wishing all of you all the best in the coming year.
