Ballarat, Warrnambool, Colac, Ballarat, Melbourne

On Saturday we had two Info events to promote the Warrnambool mission to potential leaders, one in Ballarat, and the other in Warrnambool. We got five potential leaders at the Ballarat one, and none at the Warrnambool one. It's not as bad as it sounds though, 'cause it was the first time we'd done it in Warrnmabool. Last year was the first time we did it in Ballarat, and we only had two people turn up, this time we had five, so I expect next time we'll get more in Warrnambool as well. There's also the fact that it was hailing outside, and most fo the Warrnambool people who'd said they were interested didn't drive.
Next Saturday we're running Info Events in Melbourne and Bendigo.

On the way back to Ballarat we stopped in Colac. I was going to Flip's 21st, which was in Colac, and we needed to get some tea.
We stopped at a certain fast food franchise. They started packing up at about 7:30pm. Nat reckoned they were packing up early so they could go to the party, 'cause the whole town (he estimated the population to be about three) must be invited. Nat always says things like that about places like Ballarat, Warranmbool, Colac and Bendigo. He is just bitter 'cause he has to live in big, stinky Melbourne.

Anyway, Flip's 21st was quite good. It was an op shop (thrift shop) formal. Got to meet a lot of people she went to school with and stuff. I believe there are some photos from Flip's 21st here, on Tab's blog. There are two of me, and only one each of James, Tab and Flip, so I am clearly the most important.

Got a lift back to Ballarat with Greggy.

On Monday I caught the train to Melbourne, which is where I am now. It is rather crap.

Yesterday I found out that I've had a $2.70 library fine since I left Melbourne in February 2002.
