So whats up? My blood sugar is whats up fool! Lately I have been eating a lot of Balfours Frog cakes which if you don't know are little square cup cakes with cream on top covered in frosting and slightly resembling a frog. I used to eat them when I was a kid and have just rediscovered them. I think they are great and they will take you from zero to diabetes in about 2.4 seconds which is way faster than a Ferrari.
Today I did something very different from my usual. As is the continuing trend with my job, today was completely different to any other day. We went to look at a job and I ended up helping two blokes put the gyprock on the ceiling of the job and then helped them flush it ready to be painted. I had never done that before. It was a pretty average job so I didn't mind when we were finished and the fact that I'm over 6 foot and the other two guys were barely 5 foot made it all a bit awkward. It was different I guess and at least I can tick that box off.
I came home to watch the news tonight and heard all about how protesters had interrupted the Olympic torch relay in London. Now I completely agree with their cause and I completely agree that we should fight to free Tibet but I do not agree with the way they went about it. Protesters ran out and grabbed the torch from the relay runners and were then tackled by police. I feel sorry for the people holding the torch because that is a once in a life time opportunity and it was ruined. One of the women that was shown on the news looked quite scared as the man ran towards her. Now I know Tibet is a very serious issue but I think stunts like this, although bringing huge media attention, can harm the process. Tibet stands for everything that is peaceful and I really do think a violent protest in this instance is degrading to the cause. I do think something needs to be done and I do not agree with the Chinese occupation. I think that if the Chinese media wasn't so censored the Chinese people would think differently about the occupation but I don't know if those media bans will be eased any time soon. I just hope the world does not continue to turn a blind eye on Tibet. Free Tibet.
