Final days

02Dec11

Week and a half before I leave these fine shores, and only five days left in DC. Craziness. Spending the final week slowly meandering my way to Los Angeles, via Birmingham, AL (of all places) and San Francisco. Looking forward to getting the train from SF to LA; day-long trip where the rails hug the […]


Last day

21Nov11

Last day at work. Sad, because I will miss everyone lots and lots and lots, but not too much, because I’m so thankful I got to work for them at all, and I know we’ll all keep in touch. Possible return of the daily photo* now I’m not working and may actually do vaguely exciting […]

Milo! In my local supermarket! It’s Columbian milo (wtf?), but it tastes almost the same – I think there’s a slight difference because this one has corn syrup. But still! Exciting! Good day all round, really. Went to a pilates class, did some shopping, found milo, cooked a curry, then watched an episode of Star […]


  But beer + a long call to a member of the Canberra urban family can fix many ills. Mmm, beer. There was also a burger. And fries. (Dining experience would’ve been more pleasant if I hadn’t had to listen to the batshit insane waitress trying to convince her co-worker to prepare for the imminent […]
