For marketing at uni I’ve been researching sports drinks, and in my research i found a report on the most popular drinks bought per state. i was expecting coke to top every state, but actually, it’s only first in New South Wales and Victoria.
The most popular drink in WA, SA & Queensland?
Iced coffee.

I remember hearing something about how iced coffee was really popular in the northern territory because it’s too hot to drink regular coffee, but i was surprised that it’s the most popular in those other states too.
That being said, NSW & Victoria still consume enough coke to make it number one in Australia, and iced coffee only makes it to number 10 in the total Australian tally.

Hit That!

May 11, 2009

Recently, with all the assesments I’ve had, I’ve been discovering new and intersting ways to procrastinate. One of my favourite is this, The Space Bar Game. Sorry I’m not an internerd and hence don’t know hwo to embed the game. Anyway the game explains itself. My best scores are as follows

5 Seconds- 59
10 Seconds- 104
20 Seconds- 204

Each keyboard is different so try it out in as many places as you can. Unfortunatley it’s not the most quite game and hence you can’t really play in computer labs at uni, not that that stopped my trying. Also, after a while you get really tired.

Camera Obscura

May 9, 2009

Yesterday i was in the city trying to find a roll of film. I tried various stores, even a chemist, to no avail. Finally in a 7-11 I saw some film in a rack behind the counter.
I asked the guy for the roll of film, and he turned around and got me a pack of roll-your-own papers. I laughed and said, no, the film.
He then went and got me some filters.
Thinking maybe he couldn’t quite understand me, (he was esl) I clearly pronounced “film” and pointed it out.
He looked quite confused, so i added some buzz words. “photo!” “camera!”
Still very confused, he was basically looking at everything next to or around the film, but never got it. i was almost yelling now, pointing, trying to help him, but finally “kodak” seemed to get the point across and he picked up the roll of film.
He had to wipe the dust off it before he gave it to me.

Pick It Up, Lay It In The Cut

May 2, 2009

currently my sister is out of town, she has been for a week so far and will be for another two weeks due to her learning how to teach by pretending to be a real teacher.

i view this experience as a rad easy way to experiment with bacheloring awesomeness.

First thing i did was clean up the place and i’ve worked out that as long as i mainly stick to my room or stay out of the house, the rest of this dwelling stays clean. i’m way smart (or something).

a few people i know have expressed some concern about my eating habits (mainly females really, apparently boys don’t care). But actually, i’m doing fine, thanks to instant pasta and ikea meatballs i’ve been eating gastronomic delights. Huw knows what i’m talking about. the other night i even went to the supermarket after work and got some discount (ie old) meat for half price and there was enough meat to save half for another eat later on. that’s like quarter price value.

speaking of groceries, shopping is yesways easy. so far none of my shopping trip totals have been more than 9 bucks. all i really need is milk and bread and eggs, which also happens make up the ingredients of french toast, my most common meal. one of my mates laughed at me when i went shopping, cos bread, milk and eggs is pretty much the most stereotypical shopping list ever.

also, another fun (if slightly erd-nays) thing i’ve done is take my tv out of the living room and hook it up to my laptop so i can have dual-screen computing. apart from effectively doubling my computer productivity, now i can be one of those way cool white/indie kids who say “oh nah, i don’t watch tv“. especially cos now instead of watching tv i listen to records, drink coffee and read I.D.

whilst i’m on the topic of shunning modern technology so i can appear to be a hipster, the car’s battery is flat so now i walk/bum lifts/catch public transport to where ever i need to go.

bacheloring is way rad.
