It was a freezing cold day today in Melbourne. Not only cold, but it rained most of the day. This must be a good thing for our drought starved city. Unlike the heat, the cold does not normally bother me, but today it got to me and what should have an interesting photo taking excursion in North Melbourne, was put on hold until the weather is better. It was enough to get my hair cut in Fitzroy and buy Hugh Lunn's Spies Like Us at the ABC shop at the old city GPO.
I was in the proper city post office yesterday, and ran into an old friend who is working there. He insisted we exchange phone numbers and suggested we should catch up for a drink. I really should not be so anti social, but I hope he was as sincere as I was. The shallow gay focused conversations and laughs we used to have are in the past. I really worry though, at my anti social tendencies. Having said that, we are out for dinner at a fish restaurant in Glenferrie Road Malvern tomorrow night with friends. As often happens, I will change clothes at work and bash off for dinner in a less than refreshed state. The joys of shift work.
R is bothering me about a new car for him, and his old car for me. The least I could do was go and look at a Mazda 3 at City Mazda. I had the location on a note in my pocket and as I walked up William Street, I came across this nice planting of prunus trees. I then realised it was in front of our friend's Fijian Indian boyfriend in South Oakleigh's workplace. In spite of me taking manual control of the camera, the scene looked better in real life than in the photo.
