In the next few weeks, expect more posts, sisterwife #1 Alyssa will be here on TUESDAY and we're going to have so much to do! Since you all probably don't want to hear about my day to day adventures on database management, (or do you?) I haven't had much to report as of late. After Alyssa vacates back to the states (if i let her..wha ha ha) there will even be a newwwww interactive blog to look forward to, compliments of an accidental co-operative idea from the lovely nicole of RWU fame!
If there is anything that I am longing for like nobody's business, it's American food. In fact, Shawn and I have been on a great quest since we've arrived in Melbourne, if for nothing else then to find a 'normal' hamburger. (they are always sneaking weird ingredients into the mince here, it's not just like...ground meat and cheese, it's spiced meat. stop spicing the meat, and stop putting onions in it.) After not having delicious American food for so long, i have turned into a looney tunes character marooned on an island and now sort of see everyone like this:
|Better hallucinating hot dogs than turkeys?|
|The Reeses and the Wheat Thins STILL exist in the house. I am rationing. Nutter butters....were gone in .43 seconds.|
|Even a little burnt|
|BRAND NAME CONDIMENTS!|
Shawn's friends were a complete delight, and took lots of pictures. I'm excited to hang out with them again, they were adorable! (and my height and we all know how much I love having friends that are the same height as me) The waiter of the joint was an American too and yup, just sliiiiiightly rude. Awww, reminds me of waitstaff back home :)
