I think the brand is supposed to be "Aquor" or something... and it came from Hong Kong via eBay

I'm not paying through the nose for an iPod when this thing does a better job for a fraction of the price....

Yeah, it's just ridiculous. I don't see why they renamed it. It's less informative and confuses people. As I'm sure you noticed when we were planning the meet-up, I refer to it exclusively as Spencer Street Station and I didn't even move here until it was officially Southern Cross!

good quality food; I'd pay extra for good food any day, although probably not every day.

So what can't you eat? I've gotta find some Chinese stuff for you. You've not truly lived (and had food poisoning and nearly died) until you've tried proper Chinese food.

Ooh, that reminds me of something I was going to ask you. When do you have your lunch break? I'm sure this is probably a bit too late, but on Thursdays (excluding this week), I've got a gap at uni from 1:30 to 3:15 and the Maj. has to bail on me for a 2pm class, so I've nothing to do and if I went home, I'd be here for all of 20 minutes so what's the point? I don't expect that timeframe to work for you, but I thought I'd just ask anyway.
I normally only get 30 mins for lunch, but these things can be tweaked... and I take it between 2pm and 3pm most days, so that could work.

Best thing about my team - flexible break times

So did I. I can't stand the stupid name. It sucks of "ooh look we're pandering to sissies who want a wonderfully vague name".

I always make a point of getting the good quality meat. Sure, it costs more, but I want edible dinners. I miss gourmet breads and vegies out of the garden and apples off the tree and all that good stuff from my childhood.

Eggs, fish, and nuts are all right out. Yep, I'm difficult.

For me, anything with fetta and sundried tomatoes, or smoked salmon and cream cheese, is instantly an automatic SuperWin.

Satay sauce is pretty good too, but not as exotic.

I love Baker's Delight. It's probably overpriced, but it's worth it!!

Ooh, really? I remember you said you had flexible lunchtimes, but I didn't really expect you'd be able to go past 2pm. But that would suit me perfectly, it would give me time to both get to your end of town and then make it back for my tute.

But with this being the first week, I don't have to stay at uni because I just have a lecture 12-1:30pm; the afternoon tutes aren't being held.
