Well, it seems that Tuesday has rolled around again. I finally submitted a paper I was writing for a little while now.. Hopefully they will write me back and say that yes, I do in fact deserve the Nobel Prize for this work. Ah we'll just wait and see....months down the road, I may be able to say that it is published, and then I'll tell you the title and where to find it, because I know that you all want to know.

I wrote another song on the weekend!!! I was able to play my guitar for hours without disruption thanks to my lovely wife recognizing that I need to do something besides write on my computer all day. So, thanks babe. I owe you. It was nice, but I haven't played in a while, and my middle finger is still sore from it (from Saturday can you believe it!!) I'd stick it up and show you, but you wouldn't be able to see it anyway, but just imagine... Just imagine...

My wife's sister and her husband are moving away for about nine months in two weeks. They are going to "visit" his parents in Cyprus. I have very mixed feelings about the whole thing, I think it's great that they'll be able to spend time with his family, but at the same time, the boy can not make a decision on his own. If he wants something, all his dad has to say is no, and he agrees blindly, even when it comes to raising his three lovely kids. I won't go into detail, because I tend to rant, and I'm just tired of it all tobe honest. All I can really do is wish them good luck and a safe journey, and I'm glad I'm not in your shoes. 2 adults, 3 kids aged 4 and under, with only 3 seats on a plane from Australia to Cyprus means that I'm also glad I'm not on their flight(s). Ya, good luck guys.

I thought that I actually had a little something to say today, but lo and behold, I don't. Too tired, I've been fasting (I'm a Baha'i, and we fast for nineteen days until March 21) and I feel like I am running on fumes. It's terrible. It's the worst fasting experience I have ever had, but hopefully by sticking it through, I'll get all those rewards that you read about. I have apparently lost a little weight too, so that can't be bad. Nothing Biggest Loser-ish, but a little. I'm not overweight at all, probably below average actually... just to put it into context.

I watched the Biggest Loser (Oz version) last night, and man it was garbage. I oddly enough like the show normally, but last night was just too full of bitchiness. They couldn't take a joke and wanted to quit over really trivial things. But then I realized that the reason these particular people are fat is because they are weak to begin with. They do not eat properly because it's easier to not, they do not exercise because it is easier to not, and so they get fat because they prefer the easy way, either ignorant or regardless of the cost. Still though, get over it Fiona I think her name is. Anyay though, I'm looking forward to seeing the Blue team ousted.

And Tuesday rolls in..

Hey there, just waiting for a program to install so I thought that I would drop in and say hey to all the readers... Hey.

I don't think that I have really stopped writing for a few days now, and man is it killing me...slowly but surely, I am being killed. I think I took a break last week and made a ring-tone for my cell phone, Faith No More's A Small Victory. A happy and hopefull song..

I'm about to submit a paper from my Thesis!!! Happy day for me.. It's a longish title that I'm probably not going to tell you what it is... I'll let you know when it will be out though...

Had a good weekend, saw a friend from my old Day Care!!! I don't think that I have really talked to her much, if ever, since then. She's a nice girl though, I don't know why I didn't, I guess it might be because I started school before she did, and then went to different ones up until high school. But we caught up on the weekend, I met her friend and she met my wife and son and we had a great time. Just out for supper and then a coffee. But anyway, program's installed, must write...

Hold on a bit

This blog may take a little while to get up and running, and since I've told no one it exists, it's unlikely that anyone will actually see this... But if someone does end up here for some reason, I will shortly be putting up pictures of me and my family, and maybe some other things as well...

I just bought pearl jam's rearviemirror cd, their best of 1991-2003 dual cd, and man are there some kick ass songs on it. I forgot how much I love them. Yellow Ledbetter, was the reason behind me buying the ONLY cd single I ever bought, and I guess I just bought it again eh!! State of Loving Trust, was one of the first songs I learned to play on bass...Damn Mike Keeping for never giving me that cd back!! Can't really blame him, but I can hold a grudge... It was on the Singles (movie) soundtrack for those of you who remember that. That was a great cd too, damn him I miss that CD.

So as you've read, I am still stuck in the 90's. great decade that hailed the death of Rick Astley, Debbie Gibson, and Tiffany. Who could've really asked for more? Death by Teen Spirit!! Ah the rank of it all...

I just can't seem to get into bands like A Simple Plan, who remind me of something that I lost a long time ago and think back happily that it's now gone... I know, A Simple Plan is like a band formed by Michael Bolten, Celine Deon, with Kenny G on backup. Yup, I think I'm right. Maybe they're behind them, like the navy was behind Bart Simpson's boyband..you remember their hit, yvan eth nioj ("join the navy" backwards if you still don't remember)... A Simple Plan have made a "career" out of Ben Fold's tongue in cheek Rockin' the Suburbs, where you don't know what it's like, being middle class and white. I'll drop it now.

I saw the Foo Fighters in Sydney a little while ago, and man they kicked ass!! COuldn't see very well, but they did some great renditions.. Dave Grohl played the first half of Evermore by himself and the only word to describe it was beautiful. A lot of other great stuff, but for me, that was the standout.

I should get back to writing my thesis... Entitled "Peptide - Lipid Interactions". Ya, I thought you'd all get excited over that one. If you do read this, please leave a comment, I'm curious...

Songs Written By Michael Amon

These are songs that were written by me. If you would like a copy of them, drop me a line and I'll see what I can do. They are Baha'i inspired, and if you would like to know a little bit about the Baha'i Faith, and if you're asking, what is the Baha'i Faith, then you really should follow the links on my page. If for no other reason then to at least know what it is and what it represents.

This one is called "O God My God" and is aBaha'i prayer put to music. Simply put, I really like this prayer.

This second one is called "Desire". Again, it is inpired by the Baha'i Faith and my limited abilities in understanding what everything means.
