Just doing a little testing...
"A #2 pencil and a dream can take you anywhere." Joyce A.Myers

Welcome one and all! The adventure is about to begin... and yes, I know the first rule of writing is to throw people into the action - preferably beginning with horror stories about 5 inch long leeches up people's noses (it really happened!), filling it up with various bull chasings and finishing off with 'attack by the old lady at the sacred temple-101', but I'd like to let you know that the anticipation, nerves and excitement, to me, are providing the same internal rush as any of the things listed above! I'd just like to say thank-you to my family, for being so supportive, despite the fact that I haven't spent much time with them through sheer volume of good-byes (and the *cringe* maths cd)... I will miss everyone in Australia very much, but I hope you will all keep in contact through e-mail - and no excuses, I know you can all get to a computer at least once in the next 5 months! So good-bye Australia, family and friends, as I leave with my #2 pencil, a couple of dreams, and a crate load of Santa books that I 'borrowed' from Myer during my photography/elf stint.
