Busy Day & general musings

I have been having a really busy day today and have only just managed to finally get some time to get some lunch.

With the lull in the phone calls and work that has been keeping me busy I thought I would blog about my day.

I am starting to get a bit weirded out by how many of my friends read my blog it's quite funny wjhen you run into someone who you haven't seen in a few weeks and they know everything (well that which I blog) that has been going on.
I do love technology and the way it can keep people in touch all around the world without me even knowing it either! I know the girls in Finland read my blog every now and then and I will get a funny comment left, I know other friends around Australia read it too because they tell me when I talk with them.
But I also wonder just how many other people I / we know read my blog on any regularity. I suppose since the blog also gets published on my Facebook profile more people than normal do read it!
But how many people are lurking out there that I don't know about?
I do think the funniest moment of the day is the fact that Margueax has also ordered the signed Joe Phillips book from yesterday, how cool is that? Now that's really cool viral marketing! Maybe I should email Joe and tell him about the little spike in sales he got. Did anyone else buy the book I wonder?
I was also wondering about the power of blogging, after reading about Brenton's readers offers of buying him the hot shorts for Mardi Gras and thinking about all the people who have done really cool stuff online, I wondered if I could use this to my ends.
I have never really put a wishlist of Amazon products online, instead I have always supported the site through the advertising porn advertising revenues.
The campaign to get London Preppy's big picture got a huge response from people but failed in the end because he didn't want to give the huge picture away.
So I thought maybe I shoudl use this to help me achieve my dream art collection. I wonder just wonder whether I could get enough momentum in some way to trade for, do somethng etc to get an original artwork from the collection?
Thoughts thoughts thoughts ...
You know sort of like the guy who traded a red paperclip up to a house. Hey I'm intelligent I must be able to think of something!
So there we are it's all about me again!

The Wonders of Technology

I am sitting waiting for my flight back to Sydney which is about three hours away due to the wonders of flying on separate airlines with the boy.

But at least through the wonders of technology I can sit here on my trusty notebook computer and my net connect card, surfing the web and blogging all from some God Forsaken bar in Coolangatta airport.

I would normally be in the Qantas lounge, but since the boy flew out already and he is the uber status member I have no real choice but to site here and wait it out.

It does however allow me some time to out my thoughts together on what I think of the Gold Coast / Sunshine Coast!

In a word this place is tacky and not suitable for anything when it's raining and cold.

I can well and truly see the appeal when it is warm, the beaches just go on forever and the eye candy even in clothes is just fantastic so I can only assume how great it is when the surfy boys are out!

Seriously though this place seems to be a mix of really 80s inspired and really new like the tallest residential tower in the Southern Hemispehere Q1.
But overall this place is a party town and 'surfers paradise'. It feels a bit like a mix of Sydney and Darlinghurst where we live, but with a wanna be Miami, Vegas and LA all rolled into one.
It's been a welcome break the last few days, being away from the normalcy of work, different scenery and a different routine, but as always I am looking forward to going home, sleeping in my own bed and seeing my little baby beagle.
I am currently surrounded by a whole lot of very drunk business men and a very hot young guy with them about 25 - 27 or so who is very obviously gay but I don't think the older guys in his company he is travelling with know this.
But I digress and back to my impressions of the gold coast.
I think the highlight of my ramblings yesterday was most likely walking by Cheerleaders a Gold Coast strip joint, right next to an English language school.
As I walked out a young Asian girl walked out of the language school and right into the strip club!

Totally classic!
Well while writing this blog entry I have managed to down two ibuprofen (I buggered my back) and two pure blonde low carb beers, and I am kind of flying so I am amazed that I can even sit on this bloody bar stool.
So from Coolangatta airport with two and a half hours till my flight out of here, I sign off!
