The first two weeks of July also happen to have been the first two weeks of the teaching term here. They have whipped by in a flurry of Moodling frustration, parts of speech, sentence structure, emails and discussion forum posts and replies. The only thing that kept me going last week was the knowledge that by Friday there would only be 10 weeks left in the term. What a dreadful attitude!
Still, there have been some highlights. One was the whirlwind trip to Brisbane last weekend to see Flight of the Conchords. It was a Davis sibling excursion to the Entertainment Centre. We had pretty good seats on the floor about 30 rows back. This meant we could actually see the Conchords without having to rely on the big screens. Pity the people at the back. Anyway, it was excellent and much better than the review of their Sydney show in The Australian might lead you to believe. Here we are before it started. We’re smiling because we’re happy to be there and we made it through giant traffic snarl to get there.
Yes we all wear glasses. We’re nerds.
My only disappointment was the gigantic crowd at the merchandise counter which meant we could not get anywhere near anything. That, and the delight of the hopelessly huge traffic jam that greeted us on the way out as well. Driving in Brisbane is less than lovely.
Anyway, here’s one of my favourite songs that they didn’t play. Enjoy.2 Comments »
