There's a sculpture thing outside it, this big (well, not very big) granite purse, which is apparently called the Public Purse. Slightly amusing
Oooh, so that's the GPO. I should've known that, since road distances are measured from there!

Just like how I had to mention the tram Shane Warne crashed into was route 112, you had to mention that the sculpture's granite, eh?

I don't imagine that anyone thought they needed to, until he came out with that... and by then I suppose it was too late.

But it's such a nice pink type of granite... and for the record, I'm only a fan of pink things when they're rocks.

Combination of factors:

1. My mother buys me far too many shirts. I have more than any guy reasonably should have, yet have picked out approximately just two of them for myself.
2. I've been sort of living in my Porcupine Tree t-shirt since Tuesday ...

Hey, National Hair Institute TV ad guy,

You're not just the medical director there, but have also had a hair transplant? That'd be great, if it weren't for the fact that IT LOOKS LIKE YOU HAVE A RECEDING HAIRLINE.

Sincerely,
Ax

Got to admit, I haven't noticed it. But I'm normally bustling through there to avoid people trying to get me to support their cause, or really bad busking musicians.

Also, on Swanston Street today, I was pissed off by these obnoxious people hollering at everyone "SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE! SIGN OUR PETITION! SUPPORT EQUALITY!" Well, I'm on your side, guys, but you're irritating and I want nothing to do with you.

Now I know the real reason why you're so glad the weather's been cool.

Overly-pushy/obnoxious campaigners really aren't doing themselves or their cause any favours.

I'm quite proudly wearing it!

I'll wash it tomorrow so that I can live in it again next week!

Actually, better not wear PT shirt on Tuesday. My tutors think I was just going to QLD just to visit my mother, not to follow an obscure prog rock band around the country ...

Considering I said I was going up to QLD for the ANZAC Day long weekend, it might seem just a bit suspicious that I was still in Melbourne to go to the gig ...
