Canberra – it’s quiet! And like country or something – there are paddocks of sheep in the middle of the city (well I think it’s the middle of the city because the middle doesn’t look any different to the rest. I’ve gotten lost a zillion times already.
Work is good, very public servicey. I don’t have internet access yet but they can’t deny me. I need it for research for my job and stuff like that. Oh yeah.
I drove up yesterday on the Hume Highway. It’s not really a highway after you get out of Victoria though is it. You can’t call a one lane road a highway. I stopped at Wangaratta cos I thought they’d have signs up like “proposed site of the Nick Cave statue” and stuff like that but found nothing. I couldn’t even find a sandwich shop that was open, only some fish n’ chips that looked like they’d been sitting in a bain marie for weeks.
I stopped at some other place too. It had a submarine. The cafe said they had the best coffee on the Hume. The other places must be freaken shithouse then.
Anyway I’m staying with Briony (and prolly driving her mad). Going to Sydney on the weekend and then back here until Xmas when I go to Tassie… if I can get a flight under $1,000,000.
Just went for a “run” … I’m so unfit!
