Well I am about to go out of 2009 the same way I came in; injured. Despite all the time stuck inside going a wee bit insane I know I'll enter 2010 a lot stronger. Now don't worry, I'm not about to get all inspirational and start blaring chariots of fire,

What keeps me excited for next year is summed up in this press release,

Yep, next year I'll get to trapse the globe with a new bike, new mates and a new outlook chasing new adventures and hopefully having a whole heap of fun.

The hardest thing about it is that I am still a couple of weeks away from riding and possibly another month from really riding hard. So I need to hold back even though I am ready to grab a bmx and ride to Baw Baw and back, seriously I am getting restless.

Bye for now, hope everyone ate themselves into a coma on Christmas day and I'll see you all in the new year for some training and a bunch of failed resolutions!

Last minute Edit!
Here's a nice write up on our team bikes for next season, the Museeuw MF 1

Procrastinatory Posting

Not much juicy information or gruesome photos to add yet, sorry!

Just been very busy cramming in a semester of work into two weeks of study.

I have two exams in the next 5 days so I have not had much time to keep the blog rolling.

Bottom line thus far,
Time since crash: 4 weeks
Time spent in cast: 2 weeks
Time in moon boot: 2 weeks
Time left in moon boot: 2 weeks
Time till I ride again: Don't ask (3+ weeks)
Number of fantastic Thai meals: 2
Number of visits to Dumpling King: 1 (not nearly enough)
Number of  APTE Mega Cookies eaten: 1 (a whole blog post to come on these little beauties)
Number of sympathetic relatives who have baked me some tasty goods: 2
Hows the fractured pelvis: Good nearly 100%
Hows the face: Great! I'll get some photo's loaded after my exams
Where to from here: Get in the gym, do some easy stuff; pretty much anything to keep me occupied and start some SLAM pedalling soon (more to come on that!)

So I am bored, frustrated, but no time to fret, I have some exams to pass!

Self Indulgence

Just popping up a link to an interview I did with Hawthorn "Master of the Universe"  Stu Vaughan

a while back about all sorts of random facts. Not heaps to it other than a good long video of me, talking all about, well...me. But I guess that's why people blog isn't it?


And according to Scott I am a young man full of courage. I am not going to lie that is pretty humbling, but I'd prefer to be a coward who never crashed!

Back to some thrilling econometrics work for the time being

A Post About Nothing

Sorry, no decent content here.

Have I spent a lot of time on the computer lately? ahhhh yup.
