Location: provo, USA

Mapas boring as utah is its been a pretty eventful trip so far!

Flight over was pretty dull except that lleyton hewitt & bec cartwright were on the same flight, they were up the pointy end but bec kept coming into economy to talk to the entourage & i totally jammed her in the ribs with my elbow as she walked past, im so in! SCORE!!! dad also got me the wrong contact stuff & it just about set my eyes on fire, thanks dad, so that kept me on my toes!

Lone guy travelling with huge wooden crates so of course customs pulled me up at LAX! from the whole flight was just some business man, me & some other guy declaring his pair of high powered rifles that got pulled up. then after wasting 40minutes explaining they weren't WMD's they went & changed my connecting flight which then got delayed, the story goes on...

been pretty quiet most days & nights, plus we've had to go to heaps of lectures & stuff. the monash models absolutley KILLED the opposition 2! Koreans didnt make models & the other two looked pretty craptacular, photos dont do them justice! not looking like they're making a full scale version now though, apparantly they do that every other year.

actually managed to find/create a party last night too, after the presentations & dinner scott, the swedes (marcus & daniel), richo (my lecturer) & me headed out to find a sports bar after some pre drinks at the hotel. stumbled onto a place with a pretty cool live band so went & listened to the rest of the set. afterwards started talking to the band, turns out their from detroit, & decided to grab some slabs & party on their bus, an old school bus painted black. then some local chick got us into the pool area at some of the uni housing where we freaked out the norms with our drinking, smoking & swearing. security kicked us out after 30min... Then we took the band back to scottys hotel where they went all rockstar on us & threw all the furniture in the pool & we just sat around talking shit & drinking beer till 3am. by the way budwiser tastes like crap.

anyways gotta cruise got a big dinner in Salt lake tonight at some mormon temple before listening to the quoir, its gonna be awesome...
