Much has changed since this was last revised. I've lived the best part of 2 years in a town that prides itself on its beef and its ever-expanding waistlines. I have just 6 days left here before I trundle back to Brisbane for good, in order to plant some new roots, and pick up from where I left off. And while I'm keen to reconnect with long-lost friends, there's a new opportunity for big adventures in the big smoke, and for meeting new folk along the way.
But even intrepid explorers need to recharge sometimes. Perhaps with a cool Sunday brunch, warmed by the sunlight through the window of a cafe. Or a picnic by the river on a warm summer's afternoon with a big group of friends and the inevitable guitar. But we can't sit for too long, because there's so many more places for us to go, people for us to meet, and things for us to see and do!
You can read the rest of my profile here, but there's really just one way to find out more about me -- send me a message! There's no rule saying you're not allowed to, you know...
Next comes something called "the real world". Lots of people seem to manage fine. And then I get to catch the ones that don't. Thankfully, it doesn't start until January, leaving an entire silly season to ignore it and its responsibilities.
What will you notice first?
Films: Young Einstein, The Life Aquatic and many more. I'm not at all interested in horror/thrillers though. And truth be told, I find it a little difficult to sit through an entire movie these days. Perhaps I just need some incentive.
TV: Scrubs, Arrested Development, Dexter (my one exception to the thriller rule). I talk back to reality TV, so if you're a fan, best to ban me from TV time.
Music: Classical, alternative, and just about anything in between. Nothing popular though, particularly the "latest female pop sensation". See: http://www.last.fm/user/salmonsolid
Foods: A crispy wood-fired pizza, a great pasta, a Chinese banquet, or even a burger-with-the-lot from a fish and chip shop. Slowly expanding my cooking avenues.
