So here am I in sunny Cairns

Ah, Cairns.  Armpit of North Queensland, City Of A Thousand Fucking Roundabouts.

Internet slower than a National Party MP's thought processes, on a POS old P4 that takes 10 seconds to launch Firefox, and all at $7 an hour kiosk rates.

When I get home I'm buying a secondhand Vodafone or Virgin USB modem I can feed with a prepaid card, this is craptastic at best.

The fundamental difference between men and women

When blokes get ready to go out, they find their keys, wallet and phone. They put these items in their pockets and go. This process takes about 20 seconds.

Women change their blouse, brush their hair, gather their handbag, a coat in case it's cold, another pair of shoes (because it's completely impossible to just wear the ones you'll need at the end of the journey), a water bottle and tissues. They cart this lot out to the car in at least two trips, and then insist on going back and letting one of the cats in because it might be cold. This process takes about half an hour.

I've also found that if you anticipate this lead time and don't bother to make a a move until at least 20 minutes after pre-launch preparation has commenced, women get really pissed off if you're not ready when they are "because they started first". This is, in my opinion, something to be borne and/or preferably ignored if possible.

Things I won't do.

I'm a pretty tolerant sort of person, but fuck this.

New PB

Loving this new bow, it fits me so much better than the old one.

It's somewhat unforgiving to shoot in that poor shoots are *really* poor shots, but if I'm concentrating on my form, DAMN.

Shot a new PB this afternoon of 348/360 at 30m, up from previous of 339.  Backed that up afterwards with a 345, too.

Here is a typical group, that's an A4 target.  Random holes around the paper are not mine, this one was slightly pre-loved from a kid's fun day.
