Most of us are descended from whinging poms, after all.

(and I'm allowed to say that since my mum is English!)

It does kinda feel the same way. Like I only felt motivated to do it at the very last minute, very similar to school.

That would be sad if you left, but I can see why.

She wants to try to get me into indie, it sounds like. She linked me to a song by The Unicorns that was about a 9 on the indie scale, if you place Arcade Fire at a 2.

Here in Melbourne this year, autumn felt FRIGID just because we went immediately from mid-30s to mid-teens. The day the cool change rolled through and it dropped something like 15-20 degrees in an hour was nuts.

But I quickly got used to it.

Odd. I was there in August, and we had fantastic weather... 27C in the south. Most of the rain I saw was in Scotland.

I have a song or two by them... super Indie. It just depends on what type of Indie it is, there's: Folksy, Electronica, Alt Rock, etc... all with different levels of pretentiousness.

My Grandad is the stereotypical whinging pom. It's kind of hilarious, really.

You told me yesterday. Are you sure I read it, or did you post it in a thread and hoped that I'd see it? Cos, an hour ago, I posted something for you to read, and I do not think you saw it, geek.

Glad you finished it, and, wow, you plowed right into the next one.

The great thing about cold is.. and it's a bad thing at the same time

You get sort of numb (also known as the onset of frostbite.. wheee) and you stay in that bit of bliss until you get your arse back inside. A few seconds of more bliss, then the thawing starts and oh my, tis nice and painful!



But still, I'd take cold to heat anyday. It also means that we get more days in at the rink for ice hockey

The coldest night we played hockey it was about -23C outside and it was colder inside It was great. Oddly enough, we had the biggest 'crowd' in that night. Ten people. Whooo

Because I would stop you. Since I plan on picking Melbourne up and plonking it down in... hmmm... Hawaii might be nice. Or some other tropical island.
