As far as house hunting goes, we’ll definitely be looking. I’m just not sure how we’ll go – the rental market is meant to be hell at the moment and since neither of us are working it’s going to be tough. Still we can only look and apply and see what happens.
I guess the reason I think the burbs are quiet is because I used to live in Ormond which was a very quiet suburb. Everyone in our street had young kids. Of course it’s probably changed a lot now because those young kids have grown up now. Still it would have to quieter than here – we have all the revheads from all YOUR suburbs driving up and down our street. I had this plan. I was going to start taking down license plate numbers then finding where they lived then going around and playing loud music outside their bedroom windows while they were sleeping. Revenge – it rocks.
Of course most of them prolly still live at home with their parents but I think the parents have to take some responsibility anyway. If Andrew bought himself some V8 car with a huge subwoofery sound system and went hooning around in it, he’d have me to answer to in a mighty scary way. Not that he’d ever do that because he’s not into all that macho dick-measuring bullshit. And he’s far too cheap to buy a car.
Since I can’t run this week, I’ve been trying to walk every day but it’s hard. Well I find it hard. I like walking but only if I have a reason for it. Walking around willy-nilly doesn’t motivate me (running willy-nilly is another story). So yesterday I decided to walk into the city and swim a few laps at the City Baths. I kinda got distracted by Borders and by the need for one of those cute new 60s style dresses (lots of looking, no buying). Still I managed 8 laps (it’s a tiny pool) and about 6 km walk.
When I got home, I raced to Preston market thinking it finished around 4.00. Got there at 3.30 and it was all being packed up and closed. It shuts at 3.00. I walked around to see if any of the stalls were open late and one of the dudes packing up tried to sell me a bag of carrots. Since carrots were the only vegie I have lots of, I said no. He kept dropping the price from $1 to 10c… you can’t say no to a 10c bag of carrots. Then I got my wallet out and he said I could have them for free. I made a pot of carrot soup for dinner last night – yum.
