So after a very quiet couple of months, against the run of play October is starting to heat up a bit. Strangely enough, this week I’m off to Thailand again to reprise my role of extra reserve takong, morale manager and head cheer leader with Takraw Australia, as we head back to Bangkok for another round of the King’s Cup Sepak Takraw World Championship.

Many people make the mistake of thinking Quantum Physics is complicated.

So the question is… what the blazes does any of this have to do with being unemployed and cancelling job interviews?

Well… the day after I lost my job I went a bit mental and decided that, come hell or high water, I needed to find myself a job, any job, by the end of the day. It wasn’t the most realistic of expectations to set myself, but that’s what happens when you go a bit mental. I didn’t find Hell, or any high water to speak of, and the only jobs going in my local area were – you guessed it – in a jewellery shop. Nothing could possibly have tested my resolve more comprehensively than three little words: “please enquire within”.

Spring is sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where
The birdies is
Some say the bird is on the wing
But that’s absurd
The wing is on the bird.

Fast forward twelve years or so. After a brief dry patch of about a decade I’m now with my second ever girlfriend. I guess at this stage you could say things are getting a bit serious, as I’m steeling myself for the ultimate jewellery shop excursion: Operation Engagement Ring.
