Sydney Swans won!!
In other news, I'm drunk and I would like to write to Sarah right now, but I'm afraid of writing one of those weird drunken emails.
Went to "O" Bar for Anica's birthday (she's a girl I work with). She turned 22 and I felt a little old. In number only, because I don't feel old at all, even though my birthday is quickly approaching. I feel like a child; so someone's clearly made a mistake with my age.
Listening to Morecheeba on the household CD player in the dark while reading Sarah's blog. Magic.

I just made Andrea and I yummy red thai curry. She said it was SOOOoooo good. I'm such a good cook.
We're off to the Aussie Rules Football game now.

I checked my stats. I'm getting over 100 hits a week!
Also, why would someone search for "sioban exotic australia" and get MY site?

Had a lovely talk with Alex last night, until very late at night, discussing the nature of relationships.
Unfortunately, Melograno called me at 8:20am to work for someone who called in sick. Kind of sucks living around the corner from them... but of course I said yes.
Who am I kidding? 8:30am is like a luxuriously decadent sleeping-in for me now. Sadly.
I was able to give my parents a short ring just before going to work. It was SOOOoooo good to talk to them. I miss them. They are awesome and I want to give them a big hug.
Today is errand, organization and planning day.
Tonight I make dinner for Andrea and then we go with my flatmates Jim and Ander to an Aussie Rules game.

Happy Birthday Dave!
I slept in this morning!
I was supposed to be in a 7am and woke up to a phone call from my boss at 7:22am asking where I was.
I was at work, showered and in my uniform at 7:35am. Whew!
It was a good day at work. Didn't even seem like I worked 10.5 hours at all.
Tonight, I'm going to Govinda's tonight to see Frida.

Again, opened the Glebe Roaster this morning. Early mornings are definately NOT my thing.
Well, I suppose they might be if I actually got any sleep, ever.
Off at 12:30, I walked through Sydney University. What a beautiful university. What a beautiful day.
I was going to do some errands before starting my next shift at the Surry Hills location of the Roaster, but then a wonderful thing happened.
We had a lovely conversation. And I sat down in the park just in front of the university and basked in the sun and talked and laughed. It was the first time I'd relaxed in days.
So, after we'd talked probably too long (considering the cost of calling me here without a special phone card) I went and did the closing shift at the Surry Hills Roaster.
I ran home to show my apartment to another potential roommate.
Then I finally made it to the gym. I suppose once this week is better than not at all, right?
Verdict: Pilates and Body Pump class are so good for me (as I sit here eating a croissant from the Roaster).

Andrea and I went to the Art Gallery of NSW tonight for their Art After Hours free event to see Beneath Clouds, part of their NAIDOC (Indigenous) Week film series.
Fantastic movie. And free!
And the Gallery is fantastic as well. I'm going next week too.
This tourist stuff is starting to wear me out, but it's damn fun!

Monday I went to Sydney's Skytower or Centrepoint at night. Great view; probably too expensive. Had a cool ride at the bottom, though. Very touristy.
Walked through Hyde Park at night (I know, again?) and then had yummy Thai food on Oxford St. and then went to King's Cross (the red light district) for teapot shooters.
Home late. Up early.
Yesterday, after work, Andrea and I saw the Wim Wenders photo exhibit at the MCA. The Museum is free, but the exhibit cost $10, which I think was too much.
Good exhibit, though.
Then went out for Indian food and drinks. Although I had meant to go to the pay-what-you-can night at the Belvoir to see The Homecoming. A friend of mine is in it. I was sad when they told me it was sold out.
Still don't have a roommate but found out that I can live here by myself for another three weeks. My housemates are so nice!
Finally got back and went to bed before midnight.

Went to The Rocks Aroma Coffee Festival yesterday. Lots of coffee. Too much, probably.
Then Andrea and I went for Vietnamese food (it made me miss Jane). Andrea is just back from her outback tour that she absolutely LOVED.
When we went to Scubar for drinks, we met a guy who might actually come and look at my site, so I should mention him. He didn't want to talk about the fact that he's in the British Army, so perhaps I shouldn't mention that. He's only in Sydney for 2 days, so we tried to help him figure out what to see/do in those 2 days.
2 day itinerary:
Royal Botanical Gardens
Bondi to Coogee walk
