No… couldn’t be!
Actually, yes it could. And is. And I have big news. And I bet if my high school English teachers read this, they’d… really not like the way I’m starting sentences with and.
So, the big news…
I’m going on a trip.
“Whoa!” you say. “No way!” you say. Or not. Probably you just roll your eyes at my saying that’s big news, so let me elaborate.
I’m going to Perth, Western Australia, from the 2nd to 6th of February next year.
Still, you may not be very impressed. It’s just five days, after all. Four and a half if you don’t count travel time. But then, I haven’t finished.
You see, on the fourth of February next year in Perth, there’s a little event on. And this little event is known by a rather simple name: Big Day Out.
At this point, some of you may start to be impressed. Some won’t know what it is, and some will be thinking “Meh, I go to that every year.” Well screw you, I don’t. In fact, I’ve never been to a real live concert before – and I get to start with MUSE!
So yeah, I’ve spent just over $1000 tonight to get an event ticket, return airfare and 4 nights’ accommodation, and I’m feeling pretty damn pleased with myself.
Also, in the off chance that anyone reads this AND will be in Perth in that time frame, get in touch. I’ve got Friday afternoon, and all of Saturday and Monday for meeting and greeting, and since I’m not often on that side of the country, I’d like to do plenty of both while I can.
