Bought my brother a guitar today. I cannot play a guitar, percussion is my thing. And no its not just hitting stuff, I've got a top level certification for hitting stuff from trinity. So even though its my birthday, my brother is one of those people who is good at stuff when he chooses to be good at it. So, his acoustic he got angry and smashed. His other acoustic, he gifted to the daughter of a bloke he works with. So that parts ok, the gifting bit. His electric, for reasons yet unknown, doesnt work. Its a 94 epiphone special.
I bought him, because cheap, my most hated style of guitar ever. A steel string acoustic.
It releives his violence when he has a creative outlet. Its a transfer of energy.
He's a mad guitarist, it just a shame its a steel string acoustic.

As to the electric Gita, either the cheap 6,5mm output socket has come off its wires or the selector switch is oxidised.

What made me feel good today? CHOCOLATE!

I changed the trailer loom in my car today. Reason why just not the socket which was it was a standard 7 pin that didnt turn off the parking sensors. The loom i got was a TAG. Same as my towbar. I disregarded #1 on the comprehensive instructions. I dunno how to remove the rear bumper. However, long nose pliers and small girlish hands worked that part out.
The new loom had the extra plugs to turn off the parking sensors. It took me 40 minutes, and that was without the car jacked up and a hot exhaust. Aided by the fact whilst i didn't remove the rear bumper, it was floppy. Got the wiring stuff done, bent the rear bumper mounts back into place, replaced the missing scrivets. Tested the trailer socket, it works. Lid open, parking sensors are disabled. Rear bumper is back on solid. So cannot complain.

The poor crowd at Bathurst today. Last time a sprint race was held at Mount Panorama was in 1996 and Youtube shows there were more people at that race than today.

There was no camping. If camping was allowed there would have been heaps more

Also wondering why that made you feel good? Do you hate Supercars that much?

Got to visit my grandparents today, that was lovely. First time in ages. Covid was in the way.
I was driving, and my brother wanted another bristle nose catfish for his tank. He takes good care of his tank, its freshwater but he finds it easier to keep the fish from the same region. So amazonian. I got told the criteria, and bought my own fish. So the bristle nose happened, but i bought 5 Columbian tetras. You cannot buy 1 tetra, theyre schooling fish. So i bought 5. My brothers tank, the sides are owned by the bristle noses, the bottom is owned by woody the 7 year old catfish, 1 half of the top is where the other fish live, the other half is the territory of my columbian tetras.

Ran out of trimmer line in my brush-cutter at the end of my jobs today. Very well timed.

Because the series has become irrelevant. However as long as it continues to drag in money and media attention other categories will continue to suffer. The sooner it dies the sooner a new chapter can start.
