long time between posts

Wow...I was surprised to see how long ago I had last posted something on my blog. I guess I've been busy with life and neglecting to write about it. Let's see...where to begin? Maybe the negatives first. The dog ate a hole in wall. Yep. It happened two mondays ago. I was working from home and I heard 'cruch crunch' noises from the wall behind the stairs. And sure enough, Truffles has gouged a hole in the wall and actually ate the plaster (she won't eat the dog biscuits but evidently she likes plaster). Aside from the hole in the wall, the only other negative in the past few weeks has been the weather. My aircon at work is broken so it feels like a sauna in my office (minus the naked bodies). Ok...that's it for the negatives.

Now, the positives. My folks have been in town, which means a lot of excessive (food) consumption. Over the past weekend I have been wallowing in excessive feast, gorging on roast duck, mud crab with ginger and shallot, and yummy steamed fish (among other things). I am also looking forward to the opening of the new hang of indigenous art at the National Gallery of Victoria. The last exhibition had been on for almost two years so it will be nice to see some new stuff (I have been attempting sneak previews by going up to the first floor and looking down over the balconies onto the indigenous galleries but there is only so much I can see).

So you will believe when you next hear, the dog ate my study notes?

Wow, Truffles was so hungry, she ate the wall! Tsk, tsk!

Andrew: Students seem to have a lot of the 'my beloved pet died' excuse nowadays.

Victor: You've seen me eat. The dog is like its owner.
