2006

Wow lets bridge the gap.

I started this blog in 2004, it is now 2006.

I have posted after midnight rather than before as many blogs seem to have done – which is simply because I was out.

Killed time watching the second series of Alias – I’ve only ever seen the pilot before (1st series, 1st episode, you know how it goes) and I wasn’t overly impressed with that one. Now however I am throughly into them – bad move Rebecca.

Saw the new year in lying on a trampoline looking at the stars with Jess W and Laura. We didn’t count down, my phone doesn’t give the seconds. We weren’t near a TV, we could only hear a group some distance away and the pop of fireworks, entirely illegal, entirely stupid in heat like this (not that I mind). Couldn’t see any unfortunately. A half hearted yell – a, “Hello 2006”.

Last years new years eve was complete annoyance, pestering to get away from a crowd of unknowns (Hannahs friend Miranda and her family/friends -strangers)avoiding and hating the karioke machine. There was oliboilen then (dutch food, a bit like donuts), wish we’d had them tonight, they are SO good.

The year before was with Vashti, up at Adanac. A quiet one, a good one. A distinct time of God and working out that perhaps maybe he wanted to do something with my life instead of being an apathetic whoever.

The year before that, a stone church/cottage somewhere up in NSW where we were having a holiday with Yohann and Madeline. A non event, I was half asleep. Fireworks on television are hardly the real deal.

The year before that we were with the Tompkins at Admininiby – on holiday. I can’t remember if it was before or after I’d been chucked off that stupid horse. Australia, just about to head back to the Solomons.

The year before that we were in the Daams house (our house in the Solomons). Underneath the stairs. Banging empty gas bottles making spectacular noise. Hapi Niu Iia.

And thats as far back as my memory reaches.

  2. […] I really love this song – I know Derek Webb’s version (not sure if he wrote it). The only version I can find on you tube is this of a practice (highly amusing start). Next week I have to become something from a grade 3-6′er as I’m leading on a kids camp at Adanac – which is where I spent three weeks working the start of 2005: The year before was with Vashti, up at Adanac.
