Sooo, I'm waiting for a package.

As of last night parcel tracking said it was in Sydney. Suddenly this morning it's in Perth and they attempted delivery before I woke up.

I went to the post office to get it.

No, wrong post office - it's not at the one a short walk from my house, it's at the one a LONG walk from my house, and it's a heavy parcel.

So I tried to fire up my scooter, which has a dead electrical system I haven't got fixed yet.

While struggling to get it going with the kick-start lever, I misjudged the kick, bruised my foot, and... tore a massive hole on the side of my shoe. The level just caught it on the point of the stitching, as far as I can tell.

I really like my shoes. They're awesome shoes. But one is now severely torn.

I have therapy in a little over an hour. Housemate.Dave has already said he'll give me a lift - I'm now planning to beg the poor man also to drive me to the post office so I can get my parcel dammit.

We had a parcel arrive while we on holiday and I ended up having to take a taxi to pick it up on time. I'm trying not to think of what that makes the total "postage" add up to :/
