Firstly, I would like to make it known that I am unsure whether or not reinception is indeed a word, but I am currently just so footloose and fancy free that I shall use it regardless!
After the better part of three long weeks, I am once again in touch with the rest of teh intar-web. It was odd going for so long without net access, I had so much extra time in place of when I usually sit in front of my PC collecting essential information for the fleshing out of odd plans for creating machines of ultimate destruction, breaking land speed records and cooking the perfect banana muffin. Obviously I needed to find additional activities to fill up my time, so I slept a lot more. As well as spending more time unconscious, I did a fair bit of reading, some pondering and shamefully, I even watched some television.
Of course all this sitting around was still driving me stir crazy so I went up to Perth for a few days to do some upcatching and so on. I ended up going out on Saturday night with Kristy, Luke and his girlfriend Kate for dinner at a Thai place and then some pub or other in Scarborough, which was great, especially since I hadn’t seen them in damn near ages. The next morning I got up at the crack of dawn and head out to Barbagallo Raceway by 8am to go do a race training course on my bike, and I’ll be damned if it wasn’t the most fun I’ve had in ages. It was a bit intimidating at first, but after a couple of hours I started getting right into it and had an absolute freaking ball. I’ve definitely got plans to go again, but the track is being resurfaced over the next couple of months so it’ll be out of commission. If you want to read a longer, potentially more boring bit of waffle about the track day, there’s something a bit longer here that I wrote up for some guys on a web forum I hang around.
But for now, I have an awful lot of miscellaneous time-wasting that I have to catch up on now that I’m reconnected…
