I'm a Christian husband currently finishing a Software Eng degree and wondering what God's plan for my life is. I sleep soundly in the knowledge that time will assuredly answer that question with little effort on my part.

My friend Tammy

Well it's been a happy little Easter week off, although the timing of our midsession break is a little bizarre (like it's only 17% of the way through the session and all).

We watched the film Pleasantville last night on Libby's recommendation, which was reliable as usual. We both decided that it would be a fantastic film to write HSC essays on because it's just dripping with filmic techniques and low-hanging essay fruit - like the part where all the store-owners in Pleasantville put signs in the windows saying "No Coloreds" or the Mayor of Pleassantville gives a Hitler-esque speech calling for them to "separate out that which is pleasant from that which is unpleasant" right in front of a giant Swastika handshake symbol.

If only I could go back and resit my English exam! Either that or go on to become curriculum developer for the NSW English syllabus and put it in... Nah, we'll have a national certificate by the time that happens (I'm about three graduate degrees away from being able to do that)

We also rented Serenity, the Firefly movie, which we hope that my family will watch after we've left, and the full second season of the television series Thank God You're Here, which has some fantastic comedic actors on it.

Anyway, showertime now. Until next time, adios.

He is Risen!

He is risen indeed!

I hope everyone in Blogger land had a happy and holy Easter. For my own part, we went over to Libby's parents place for the weekend to spend time with Paul and Heidi who were down from Brisbane. Twas marvelous.

Short blog post as we rush out the door yet again! God bless.

I'm watching you...

In the spirit of full disclosure, I feel it necessary to warn you that I've just installed some Google Analytics tracking code on this blog which allows me to find out all sorts of things about you. Like your address, phone numbers, Medicare details, credit card numbers, email passwords, and other silly things like that.

Actually it will just get your browser type and maybe a rough physical location (like "Australia" kind of rough) so that I can know how many and what kind of people are viewing my site.

Please don't be offended, o blog reader. I do trust you. It's just that I'm so insecure that I'd like to know more about who I'm writing for. And I want to play with Google Analytics. And I don't trust you.

Peace out.
