i'm soooo jealous of you. and yes he is hot.

come to think of it, i have met a former president, jimmy carter. and i saw senator john ford at pf chang's one time. he was still senator at the time, but he'd already started to come under fire for all the crap that led to his conviction. but no one important.

My school was usually pretty good with catering to the needs of those of us who were news junkies. The library every morning got copies of the three major papers on the Gold Coast, and if big news was happening, we could always go to the library to watch it or take over an un-used class at lunch.
i don't remember anticipating another attack

That's pretty much all everyone did here. I don't really know why. I guess they expected something more resembling a conventional war rather than an isolated attack. 18 September and 11 October were the two dates most expected to have another attack. Once 11 October passed, that's when people stopped really expecting anything.

Wow, FYM truly has gone to the dogs.

Far right dogs with annoying barks.

I feel like listening to U2. Ugh.

Ax, I'm disappointed. First thing I do when I meet you is snippet "Sympathy for the Devil" Bono-style in my conversation, and I don't think you picked up on it!

Good fun meeting you though; and I'm guessing that I'm nothing like what you expected. You are fairly, but I expected more Kiwi accent

In my surprise to have you suddenly catch up to me, I didn't realise that until it was too late to refer back to it.

Plus, as I said, I was expecting the Kunstmuseum. I also forgot to salute you. Didn't even think of it until I was walking to the tram.

You were actually fairly like what I expected. Though your accent was more obviously Asian. Westernised for sure, but not quite like one person I got on with well last year (who's now in Canberra, boo), whose accent revealed no trace of Asian origins. I believe her heritage is Singaporean.

Anyway, got to catch up again soon. I'm aiming to come to the Tuesday lunchtime concert first week back after Easter.

Mofo, Please, Discotheque from Sarajevo.

Dear U2,

Stop sucking me back in.

Cheers,

Excellent. Now, I have family over as I mentioned, so I've gotta run. I'll be online a bit less over the weekend I expect, but I'll definitely be at the lunchtime concerts.

Don't forget Pop Muzik before Mofo. Otherwise,

Ok I should go, bye!
