So tonight Stu had his first book club meeting with the girls.  I went along because I wanted to have dinner with Stu, and the alternative was to just go home alone.  Natalie and Andrew came along for dinner, as Natalie was going to bookclub too.  So that was all very pleasant.  And then they started the meeting, and Andrew and I were told in no uncertain terms that we were a distraction, so we removed ourselves from the scene.  And went inside and chatted about all sorts of crap.

And pondered the physics of the carbonated straw, and why it didn't tip over the edge.  Things like surface tension, volume of coke in the straw, lip of the glass, etc.  :)

Then Andrew mentioned he had a blog, but wouldn't tell me where it was, because obviously that would be no fun!  He gave me a clue of "it's a town" and I quite randomly guessed a town a mere 30 minutes drive away!  But it was a challenge to find a map of the said location, as Google maps hasn't ever worked on this blackberry.  Until tonight!  When somehow I managed to click on a link that reinstalled it, and now it works!! I was very excited. :)  Looks like I have a couple of years of posts to meander through heh

Afterwards we investigated the spiral stormwater drain and played in it for a bit before heading home.
