The Green Green Grass of Melbourne

I've been helping Bec's step-dad as a landscape gardener the last few months (just to make ends meet); cutting down trees, digging holes and the like. It's good honest graft and I get to wear a dirty vest and look sweaty like Bruce Willis in Die Hard (which is fun).

Anyhoo, just thought i would mention some stuff that i've noticed while being a part-time gardener in Australia:

Melbourne has a lot of shit drivers (not indicating, not letting you into traffic, dawdling at lights, etc). They're not necesserily bad just really inconsiderate. Example: One lady waited for the lights to go green before doing a u-turn in the middle of the road and holding up 4 lanes of traffic. Unbelievable.

Some of the houses in the South Melbourne suburbs (Toorak,Richmond) are massive, there is some serious cash being thrown around and that's not good because their lawns are huge and they need mowing.

Macdonalds breakfasts aren't actually that bad.

A vest tan does not look good.

Those big trampolines have become quite popular.

Chainsaws are cool.

There isn't a Black Widow spider hiding under every rock/in every tree (infact i have seen no massive spiders at all).

Everyone has GIGANTIC bbqs, i mean seriously huge, like space stations that smell of sausages.

that is all.

look at the size of this thing, it has spotlights and wings!
