Happy (alleged) Birthday Sydney Opera House !

Opera House birthdays must mean good Mondays.

I woke up very early this morning to go swimming at Macquarie. (I've been trying to convince myself for over a month now). To my pleasant surprise the olympic sized pool turned out to be heated...and not crowded...and clean...and AWESOME. I couldn't believe it. What luck.

Afterwards, I went and picked up my shiny new health insurance card where I enjoy no-copays and am allowed to ride in an ambulance for free.
I cannot WAIT!

(I must comment here that these are two things that my life has lacked since my undergraduate days.... MORE THAN THREE YEARS AGO. What adversity I have endured! I have no idea how I managed.)

And this all happened before I really even started work-- hm. With such a good start to a Monday, I had no choice but to fill the rest of my time doing linguistics and watching the storm clouds and cold winds blow in, drinking coffee.

What did you do?

first of all, stop all your time traveling! i'm just waking up on my monday morning. i managed to roll (literally) out of bed without any assistance - honestly, and now i am on my couch about to watch my new favorite hbo series on sidereel.com (have you tried accessing it down under?). a heated swimming pool sounds divine! i wouldn't mind feeling weightless for a bit. i'm carrying some serious extra pounds these days :-)
then i go to the doctors. after that it's pretty much me on the couch with my feet up, again. for some crazy reason i don't seem to have as much energy these days (17 left by the way!!). i know i know, rough day. it doesn't beat yours though.
