Give it a rest!

This is perhaps a little surprising, given that I once worked as a telemarketer, but just lately I've been getting a ridiculous number of calls from telemarketers. Granted, you expect the occasional one, but when you're getting multiple calls every night, the time comes when one begins to simply say ENOUGH ALREADY! I'm almost at the point of simply taking the phone off the hook each evening when I get home and just checking messagebank periodically to see if anyone important has left a message.

And since I'm in the mood to complain about things I've had enough of, is there any way to do something about this heat? 29 degrees C by 7.30am isn't necessarily that bad, but when it's accompanied by humidity that makes one feel as though they're breathing underwater the whole time, it gets more than a little tiresome. This applies doubly if the previous night was no cooler and one is trying to function on 4-5 hours of sleep (or less). There is the promise of a thunder storm this afternoon, and I just hope it hits just as I'm riding home from work. It might be the only chance of relief until I fly out on Friday.

Speaking of flying out on Friday, I've noticed that this page has been picking up some traffic from people searching for details of the ASH Dash (the reason I'm going to Hobart for the weekend). I hope you people haven't been too disappointed to discover a blog about cycling in Queensland. In case anyone does find it a little annoying, I promise a full write-up from Sunday's ride, as well as anything else I might get up to over the weekend.

Two days to go.
