A jaunt in the city
14.07.2007 - 14.07.2007 11 °C
This weekend, although not quite as eventful as last weekend was still pretty great. I awoke early on Saturday morning and dragged myself out of bed, for a quick shower and breakfast before heading out into the street. I was headed three blocks away to look at a cute little one story terrace that may end up being my new home. Alana and I have been having issues with the place that we are living at now, so we are starting to look around Newtown for any other places to live. This place was adorable! 2 bedrooms, cozy loungeroom and a little courtyard out the back. The one issue was the bathroom. It was old. With a clean up it could be quite nice, but at the moment it's a little bit third world. We are really hoping to get this place, and we have so many ideas on how to make it great, but even if we don't get approved, we will keep looking until we find the perfect place.
After looking at the house and grabbling our application forms, we headed into the city with Señor, to a talk on astral projection at the Adyar book store near town hall. It was awful! There was a guy there listening to the talk, who kept interupting and making the poor guy doing the talk lose concentration. We stayed there until we couldn't bear it anymore, and then looked around the store at all the amazing books for sale.
After about half an hour we went for some lunch and a beer at the City Hotel. We sat and talked about religion and spirituality for about 40 minutes (inspired by our Adyar adventure). You know that people are truly great friends if you are happy to talk to them about stuff like that. Then we went and got some candy at a Japanese supermarket and headed into Kinokuniya bookstore for half an hour or so before heading home.
The evening consisted of Alana, our friend Julia, and I heading into the Big Echo karaoke bar on Bathurst Street in the city. We sang bad songs at drank bad wine until late into the evening, and then I headed back to Newtown and hung out at a friends place until about two in the morning.
Sunday was a sleepy day, and I just stayed at home and caught up on my reading.
All in all, another great weekend.
