The weekly round-up of things I’ve been enjoying this week:
Dizengoff – I moaned a little earlier in the week about the difficulty of having a ‘local’ in such a sprawling city. For my mates and I Dizengoff is probably the closest thing we have to a local (though no alcohol is involved and for most of us it isn’t local at all). Even when living on the edge of the earth in Botany, the boyfriend and I would make the trip every weekend to indulge in good coffee, mushrooms, sausage and eggs and chicken bagels. I’ve been enjoying this for a minute, but it makes the cut this week cos’ I’ve been there about four times since Saturday, so it’s been extra good times.
Raspberry Choc Twists – The idea of chocolate in raspberry liquorice seems like a weird mix but whilst in New York, Che and Shirl bought this bag of goodness over and I smashed it almost entirely by myself (much to Shirl’s dismay). I figured out, with Andy’s help, why I like these so much: they taste kinda like Jelly Tips!! After one of my 5 am shifts this week, I went to the supermarket and got my re-up. Sugar headaches ensued.
River Monsters – being only semi-employed allows more time for channel surfing which means the occasional Gilmore Girls episode and becoming reacquainted with one of the most bad ass shows ever, River Monsters. Jeremy Wade is pretty gangsta, but cat-fish are not to be f**ked with.
Getting Paid – Had my first pay-cheque in almost 3 months. Not exactly ballin’ but it’s nice to see something in the ‘incoming’ bracket for once, ha.
