Week 31 of The Project was pretty uneventful compared to the past couple of weeks. There was a lot of great music and gigs, I did not get stranded anywhere and there were no "insect in my jeans" episodes which was a relief! This week just ticked along nicely.

Week 29 of my 365 Day Project was probably the most insane week to-date. On 11 September I cracked DAY 200, then three days later I found myself in North Melbourne at 10.30 on a Wednesday night with a flat battery, the dog, no money and no way to get to a gig in time. If not for the good will of complete strangers and late starts my project would have been over. I hope you all dig this week. It is a very special one for me.
