Date Claimer: Saturday 29th December

One of the problems with having a birthday in August is that if I want to have a party for my birthday, then I'd be having it in winter.

The problem with winter parties is that it's cold outside, so the party is mostly limited to indoors unless you have a means of heating the outside (like a fire). We don't have that at our place, so that means that everyone who turned up would be crammed into our house. Considering how many people turned up at my birthday dinner at the Khan, there is no way that all of them would have fit into the three rooms at our place that aren't mine or Travis' bedrooms.

So, I chose not to have a party for my 33rd birthday.

Instead, I'm going to have a 33 and a 3rd birthday party at the end of December with the theme of Beach Party! I'm considering two options at the moment. Firstly I actually have a beach party at the beach. Considering this is going to be summer, every man and his dog (and a lot of others as well) will probably be at the beach, so they are going to be hell crowded, so probably not.

Second option, the one that I'm currently going for, is to get some sand dumped in the back yard and fill a wading pool, and have it at home.

That's the current plan.

So, please pencil in your diaries that I will be having my 33 and a 3rd birthday beach party the afternoon/evening/night of Saturday the 29th of December (that's the Saturday between Christmas and New Years). More details will be released closer to the date, when I actually have some details to release. I hope to see you there.

fwiw, during summer we often go to Sandringham beach after 5pm and its not packed - although this is not necessarily the case in the break between Xmas and NYE, nor on a Saturday.

(also, mumble, mumble "Under Stage 3a water restrictions a new pool or spa of any size capacity cannot be filled." mumble)

Under Stage 3a water restrictions a new pool or spa of any size capacity cannot be filled.

Hmm... I believe that doesn't apply to inflatable pools and the like. I know that it didn't in Queensland (and they were up to level 4 or 5 restrictions).

The problem is that the Victorian authority only provides a short summary of the restrictions on the website, while in Queensland you could download the entire document and check yourself.

I'll check it as we get closer to the date.

Have you considered the idea of hiring a large jacuzzi for the weekend? If the cost is an issue, you might choose to ask people to bring a gold coin/$5 donation to help cover the cost.

And jacuzzi's are awesome.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
