Wasn't able to watch the first episode last week, but saw last night - basically everything I expected. Adam Hills is wonderful.

I thought there could have been another implication too, but in any case it's a backhanded compliment... still funny though. I barely ever watch Ten news so I missed it.

aaaaaand Ten's shut the vid down.

Nobody does because it doesn't exist.

Is this person looking for their own place, or just to share? Because in the case of the former, the cheapest places in central Melbourne/inner suburbs (i.e. within a 30 minute radius of Melbourne Uni, RMIT, and other univeristies' city campuses) are going to be dingy shoeboxes for about $200-220/week. If you're sticking to inner suburbs, it's VERY hard to find anything for under $200 now; I recently ranted about these sorts of places on my blog.

But you can find pretty nice places for $250-300/week. With prices like this, it's best to find somewhere to share with a couple of other people if you're on a budget.

I think Modom has become to accustomed to everything being within 30 mins in Perth. The beach is 5 mins drive away, the river a short run, Perth only 18ks from where we live etc, etc. Now she has to struggle with a 45 min trip to work from campus or from campus to hockey training and is NOT HAPPY, JAN!!! (Plus a bit of a case of homesickness, though am wondering if this is not related somewhat to sudden lack of funds after paying fees etc, etc). Ah the joys of suddenly being responsible and having to count coinage.

Wombat is my favourite Australian animal. Unfortunately we'll never put them in our Australia brochures for overseas market at work, because it has to be damn koalas every year Never saw the big deal about those critters, yeah they're cuddly and fluffy and appear to have all the personality of a potato sack.

Koalas suck balls. Aren't they really aggressive and sleep like 18 hours a day?

Yep. They don't just eat eucalyptus because they're hungry, but because they're addicted to the stuff. They binge on it, gives them a sort of high, they pass out for 18 hours, and when they wake up they're cranky as fuck because they need a hit.

Also, they won't bung up your car if you hit one.
One of the rare occasions one will see a koala at ground level. Where was that? Near the CBD I imagine?

And that is why I can never hate koalas. They're also supposed to roam around my suburb, my mum has seen one cross the road once.
