another great weekend. this is the lucky country.

i really enjoyed myself this weekend. no dickhead minority to spoil my fun. (i don't care who's paying for it, i'm there, it's my fun :-) )

friday night loading the customers it pissed down. i love it when people with no clue look at the weather and say, it's raining really hard, we'll wait until it eases. only here that could be in 2 days...

in any case, most of them got drenched, except for one inventive lad who wore his wetsuit on the tender out to the boat. but that didn't stop them, they dried off, changed, and partied on. in our industry, people who refuse to have a bad time, who enjoy every situation, are the best customers. and they'll get a lot more out of the experience as well. we had a fairly large pommy contingent. and i must say, they really made the past pommy customers look bad. i know where the saying "whinging pom" comes from. but there were none amongst this lot.

when god was handing out brains, they thought he said roller blades, and they said woohoo! give-us a go of that! ok, what i'm trying to say is they were a lot of fun and had a good time.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...'Fuck yeah! What a ride!'"

so friday night ended up with us all drenched and giggling. saturday was fine and fun. a little unsettled, but the divers took it all in their stride and had a lot of fun. i managed to go for my second drysuit dive, and leaked like a sieve. some more instruction required. so i got the boss to help me out, she fixed my neck seal, then i went off for a night dive and saw the biggest catfish i've ever seen. she fixed the seal pretty good. i think i've got it sorted now.

sunday was the usual bedlam. get up, set the tables for brekkie, help the cook a bit, take a 20 min power nap, then go go go. chuck divers into the water, get them out, fill tanks. repeat. there was no cute young chickies, but there were some nicely preserved older models. makes working on the back deck all worth while :-) due to my latest attempts, i've worked out that i'm not equipped to deal with relationships. i have an unhappy knack of screwing things up. and then feeling like shit for months. so i'm staying single, enjoying myself, and enjoying the scenery. look but don't touch...

crew A gets off, crew B gets on, i go home and they go for a booze cruise (xmas party). i've finally got back to "things going smoothly". gonna try to keep that working for as long as possible.
