I finally have a phone...& life is getting better!

Cara is back in Oz and has a new number so take it down! I am with 3 for the moment and my number is: 0425 820 838

For all you me to reconnect if I haven't got a hold of you yet!

For everyone else, I receive calls for free and have some international calling time for the moment so maybe we can talk!

Cara =)

So I have been back for 17 days....

...and things are still a bit depressing. I wonder how long this takes to wear off? It's all in the mind Cara!

On a slightly more positive note I attended the Sound Relief concert at the MCG with my old friend Dave and that was awesome! I saw Crowded house, Hunters and Collectors and Midnight Oil live for the first (and probably last) time! There were many more acts that played at the concert but these three classic Australian rock bands reformed for the concert and were wonderful, as was the atmosphere when 80,000 people sung along to some of the most famous songs in Australian music history. As Australian as veggiemite, BBQs and multiculturalism. Photos soon as I am not overwhelmingly apathetic and a can be bothered to put them up!

A rare sighting of the Cara raiding the fridge.

Welcome back to Melbourne!

Welcome back to:

...sunny days and beautiful skies
...unpredictable weather (4 seasons in 1 day) and random humidity
...canceled trains, beeping doors, running for the train (aka: frustration) products containing high-fructose corn syrup coinage and plastic brightly coloured bills
...making a reference to an Australian TV ad/commercial and someone understands
...being accent-ally confused (and constantly getting asked where I'm from or am I on holiday! oh, endless explanations)
...having a closet
...having dogs (that bark) and cats (that have hair...lots of hair)
...a new University that's more disorganized then the last
...timetables, textbooks, impersonal giant university where you don't know everybody
...Mother's kisses
...chocolate in abundance from Hahndorfs...ohhh, the dark chocolate moose is so gooood! Australian books! the Obernewtyn chronicles are finished and I am voraciously reading book 5
...always asking for the time (no watch, no phone)
...a small-ish city
...a local feel (our local pizza is the best in the world!)
...a home for Adults not a student house
...TV (it's everywhere! in my home, in my friends homes...blah! I am trying to stick to my principles)
...big M flavored milk
...things costing more
...terribly terribly awful horrible fashion. Welcome to the 80's, the confused 80's
...and more being asked where I am from all the time...I'm from here!
...a land downunder, a sunburnt other home
