Potential Weirdness, But Not
This morning we were getting off the train, and a guy comes up to me.

"Excuse me, are you Danielle?"
"From Tennessee?"
"I'm [insert name]. I sent you a message on myspace a while back."

My instant reaction was panic, as I've had a barrage of wackos sending me lunch invitations on myspace lately. Turns out that he was not one of them, and in fact we had corresponded briefly as he is from Texas and is also on the quest for "real" Mexican food in this town. And, in fact, we may meet up with him and his wife in the future.

But still... it was a bit weird at the time.

Australian Arbonne!
I no longer have to be completely stingy with my soap and lotion and shampoo and cosmetics -- ARBONNE is coming to AUSTRALIA! I'm signing back up the second I can, and maybe I'll try to build a little business out of it. Such an untapped market; maybe it would be easy?

Lost in Translation
n. a dining establishment which also likely features a section with poker machines but does not have rooms in which to spend the night... unless it is more than two stories, in which case, it is then called a "hotel" but may or may not have the restaurant and/or the pokies.
"It's a proper hotel with food and pokies."

I'm seriously trying not to get involved with Big Brother, but it's hard, people. It's really hard. It doesn't help that I always seem to be coming home and turning on the television just as it starts.

And Finally...
New expat blog coming soon to a sidebar near you: Outback Dobbs
