My question first, and answer true cause you know, I'll know. Why Mandy?  
First of all: Happy birthday to obscurek.

Last night I spoke to my brother, Leigh, who lives in Hamilton, New Zealand (but works on cruise ships all over the world).
He asked for the URL to my blog, and said he wanted to read about our conversation here.
I'm not sure if he expected any more detail...

In other news, I made myself a new icon.
I'll get back to making them for other people as soon as I get another burst of icon energy.
These things come in spurts (a bit like me, really).

More storms predicted for today and tomorrow.
God, I love Melbourne's weather (and I say that with no sarcasm, I really do love thunderstorms).
Current Mood: mellowmellow

Thunderstorms can be murder on electronics though... :(

I guess I should get a surge protector thingy for the phone line.

Did you have an incident?

No, just know

That's a great icon! I love Lawn too :-)

How do I get the icon you made me? Just print screen and work it out in paint or what? i tried just copying it but didn't work.

Right click & "Save as" normally works.

Thank you very much!

If you like thunderstorms so much, then Melbourne isn't exactly the best place to be (excepting recently). They have real thunderstorms up north.

Oh, and thunderstorms do rock... though I'm sure that that last lightning-strike was only about a kilometre away, where there are a bunch of houses.

Thunderstorm are truely one of my favourite things in life!

I've loved them since I was a little girl. They facinated me. In year nine science I was so thrilled to hear that we were learning about them, how to tell how far away they are, etc etc.

When I was about ten, one of my good friend's house was struck by lightning. They lost an entire wall and her Grandpa, who was on the phone at the time, was thrown all the way across the room. He had to be hospitalised for quite some time. The thing was, her house was next door to mine. I still, to this day, don't understand how that didn't out me off.

I just love them. Especially at night and especially in summer! =)
