Out of the blue the other night, I get a message on FB from my friend. She has recently had a kid and has this desire to try out one of the many local gyms. Not that I’m complaining, but she chose me as her excercise buddy.
I can quite happily get away with NOT doing much at the moment. I have a beer belly and that’s about it. Everything’s hidden well underneath my t shirt and I look around and think “I could be worse”. Still, that’s no excuse for NOT getting fit.
So today is just another work day, actually I have to say an absolutely GORGEOUS day outside. First time I can honestly say it felt like spring. Let’s hope this continues. Anyways, stressing thinking about this in my head all day. “what CAN i wear? whats good music for my nano? am I going to look like a right idiot??”
this evening i lessen my nerves, we arrive .. AND!!
My friend’s little bub wakes up. She had to go home 🙁
We’re going to attempt again tomorrow, see if I can get used to it. And what kind of prices as well. I hear they’re pretty steep…

It’s one of those water-cooler talks at the moment around the town. Some people for, some strongly against. If you jump in a taxi you have a 90% chance of the topic coming up on the way home.
I don’t see what the big problem is. All these people ranting about problem gambling. Honestly, I work in the gaming industry now, it’s pretty bad already. Having another handful of pokies is not going to cause thousands of more people to flock to these machines. And I’m one of these people who believes you should let people do what the hell they want. There’s plenty of warnings out there. People still smoke, despite hiding the smokes and constantly upping the prices. “The odds of winning on pokies = SFA” is stickered onto every single machine. Hell, it’s a rule. The clubs get fined if they are removed.
As for “the bad element”? Pullease. This town/city has already inherited a SA Bikey gang. As it stands now you can’t walk home from the clubs now, and this was long before the bikes came to town. This is just standard city life. I’m not saying it’s right but that’s what you get when your city is moving forward. Hell, my home town has around 20 thousand people or so and I wouldn’t even walk home there. And that place is shrinking, not dying!
I say why stop progress to this wonderful place. If we continue to jump up and down and act like country yokels, they’re just going to go to another town and this place will lose a whole bunch of new jobs for people.
