My lease is up in a week, and I've not found a place yet. I had a look at a place down in Logan yesterday. It's a long way away. About 20km from the city centre. I didn't think it was going to be too far, travel time wise, based on passing the train station in the past, but it turns out that the express from the Gold Coast covers that distance a lot faster than an all stations train that will actually stop there.

Which is a pity, because it's a nice place, cheap, and I passed what looks like a good small-goods on the way. It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't work out in the arse end of nowhere. I need a new job.

Got a tax refund the other week, and while I've saved most of it like a good boy, I did buy A Day at elBulli. It's food porn at its most obscene.

I'm still not sure whether to hate Ferran Adrià for making a fortune selling plates of coloured nothing to people, at exhorbitant prices, or whether to class him as a genius for understandng that idiots will pay!

A little of both, I think (because I'm all about balance ;D)
(although, it's sort of hard to take him seriously when your first experience of him was the actor who imitates him on 'the' Catalan satire programme!)

Hope you find a new, decent place to live.
