NB: an abbreviation I haven't seen in years is suddenly popping up in strange places. I believe the most recent usage was at a Canberra gas station, on an advertisement for nappies. Go figure.

BC, LC: does that make me MC?

Double demerits: What kind of crap is this? During the Anzac holiday weekend, coming up any day now, you will get double points off of your licence if you do Bad Things. For example, if both you and a passenger are not wearing seatbelts, you will instantly lose enough points to lose your license. Huh? Why not go the extra step and have special Triple Demerit Tuesdays for all Renault drivers in Wagga Wagga?

40 km: Well, not quite, but close. Took a hike down to the lighthouse at the end of Wilsons Prom and back. It was really only about 38 km but I'm surprised that I finished it. Nestle dark chocolate and sheer willpower are the only things that got me through the last several km. I must replace my boots though - after the first fifteen km or so they started chewing into my flesh just above the big toe. Ugly and painful. It's healing already but I'll be damned if I wear these guys again on a long hike.

Other: Um, I'm kind of tired right now. I need a nice relaxing evening at home with a Coles taco kit and some hooch. Bring on the Tahbilk, the cheese grater, and the lettuce washing device. Must eat.
