It’s Monday, the 13th March, I think. It’s hot and outside the sun is shining. Because of that I might just go for a ride.
But first, I think it’s about time I got around to uploading a few pictures from the book launch the other week. I’ve been so slack, I suppose almost hybernating with it something I’ve been telling myself I should do for too long now.
I know there’s not so many, but I couldn’t take so many as I was sat on the bike at the time and so the only pics I have are the ones that other people took, which I gather aren’t all uploaded yet. But give it time.
The only other thing I thought might be of interest is this interview from the Channel 9’s breakfast show.
It was my first TV gig and made me quite nervous, as you can see with the way I walk on shot and look like I’m lost and trying to find my way out. But I think it turned out okay. It was just a bit weird, so rushed, so in and out and thankyou very much there’s the door, don’t let it hit you on the way out. Though enjoyable none the less.
Though I don’t have another outfit if I had to go on again so will probably look like a poor bum with only one set of clothes. But they’re my best ones so I’m not replacing them just yet.
I realise I’m talking shit.
In other news, all is good in Sydney. I’m enjoying my time here, camping in the living room of good friends, Charlie and Nish. I’ll have to take a picture of my inflatable bed beneath the television, right next to the kitchen and the coffee table. They’re looking after me well and I’ve never ate so healthy, which is a good thing because I’ve got a bit of a belly and don’t like it very much.
Neither does the motorbike I’m riding, the one kinldy lent to me by Joe at One Ten Motorcycles in Caboolture. Her name’s Lucy and she’s a noisy old girl with a big exhaust on and a fat tank and all the trimmings. Not quite as subdued as Dot, that’s for sure.
Going forward I have slight plans afoot, but nothing concrete. Nothing set in stone, something I’ll have to do soon if I’m to keep the momentum going instead of stopping and laying on the beach until the waves wash me away. So in the next few weeks a decision, another one. Anything for an easy life…
Today I’m starting to get the books out that people overseas have ordered. It’s a huge job and I was really daunted by it. But Charlie’s given me some pointers and I reckon it’s all on track. Like a production line of books being signed and packed and sealed in envelopes to be sent to the other side of the world.
I know my website is confusing but the book is out in Australia, in all good book shops, which is perhaps the best place to get one from. For those people who want one overseas the best way – cheapest – is to get one directly from me, hence the form at the top of the page to put your details in and wait for me to wade through the first batch and finally get to you, which now I’m moving shouldn’t take long. A couple of weeks, no more.
So with that I’d best say adios, I have to head off and buy more books. But I’ll make sure to be back to upload more pictures and update on progress. In the meantime I just want to thank everyone who’s supported me so far; everyone who was at the book launch, all the friends I have in Sydney, my mum for coming out and visiting, and for everyone and anyone else who might have bought a book. I owe you one.
