How to lose weight

While I was walking into the coffee shop this morning I was thinking how strange things can happen to you in certain circumstances.

People can show unusual feats of strength if a family member is trapped under a car, people get extremely competitive and border on being violent once they take to a sporting field, your best mate that sticks by your side no matter what will desert you at the opportunity to hook up with a hot chick.

We see bizzare things happen to normal individuals in circumstances like these as well as others.

It occured to me this morning because during my walk in I noticed something that I hadn't noticed for quite a few months. As I walked in I could hear a kind of jingle.

A kind of jingle jangle.

Or was it more jangle jongle. Or Jongle Jobble.

All of a sudden I realised I couldn't hear it, I could feel it. And it wasn't a jingle, jangle, jongle, jangle, jobble, it was a wobble.

Like the bed springs on a honeymooners bed I could not just feel my belly bouncing and shaking, but I could see it through my shirt!

It then occured to me that I hadn't seen someone under the car.

I had long been away from any kind of sporting field, unless you call the pub a sporting field.

I wasn't trying to hook up with a hot chick.............. I realised I had already hooked up!

And that is what happens, you get lazy, you get fat, and you start to wobble.

Executive Summary for The G Space: If you want to lose weight, break up with your partner and get yourself into the shape that would cause best friends to turn on each other just to hook up with you.

Leaving home or heading home

It's been business as usual for the past few weeks.  Nothing of huge consequence has happened, but at the same time there's been a lot on and I've had a great time.
  • The Power and Water Intranet site has been built and is just going through the final checks before it goes live.
  • I've started up some podcasts based on the nonsense that Paul and myself talk during the morning coffee's at the Coffee Club.
  • We created another pointless blog for the Nuggets of Knowledge that come from these pointless chats
The biggest news of the week is that I'm staying with the current flight plans and I'll be leaving Darwin on the afternoon of February 1 to fly back to the UK and start back up again with Squiz UK.

It's crazy to think that I've been away from London for 3 months already, the time has absolutely flown.  It's been great spending time with my ol' friends from Darwin though, and I've even managed to make a few new friends who I'll be sure to remember for years to come.

About now I'd usually go into a spiel about what I've learnt, maybe a poem or a song, but I've got to catch up with Paulie G tomorrow morning and I'll never hear the end of it.

How did new years treat you?

It's another year and it has started with a low pressure system off the coast of Darwin bringing some small fun waves to Casuarina Beach, and a few to Nightcliff as well.

If the low pressure system stays out off the coast we should see some small waves at Nightcliff tomorrow morning from 7am, but the tides will once again let us down for any action at Casuarina Beach.

If you're still struggling from some new years blues, head over and take the poll and let us know how you're handling it.
