The ultimate test of stamina and rat cunning, house hunting pits you against hordes of affluent working professionals, career renters, young families and well-financed international students. A few simple rules will give you the edge you need.
Maybe I if swapped my taste for cheap burnt coffee for tribal ink, highly sculpted facial hair and body piercings, I’d finally discover that ‘track suit pants are not welcome here’ attitude that everybody seems so keen on.
The heat makes everything so confusing. Yesterday, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology extended its palette range to include purple to deal with Australia’s current heatwave. I really can’t understand how the addition of a single colour on some weather chart can cause such hysteria.
I have always wanted to go to the Adelaide Test. People rave about long hot days spent drinking in the sun on the ground’s famous hill. Now that I live less than a kilometre from the ground, I have no excuses.
I write this from the smug afterglow of having seen my first tweet displayed on Q&A. My increasing infatuation with Twitter has led me to see the ABC’s current affairs panel discussion as Australia’s social media mecca.
A decent whinge has always been an effective method to get your own way but some recent issues I had with a pair of Dunlop Volley’s shows that social media takes the reach and results of a whinge to a whole other level.
I always thought that the Dunlop Volley worked as well on the dance floor as they did in the bedroom. Its record of excellence commands respect so the recent drop in the quality of this iconic product saddens me.
The AB is an Adelaide junk-food institution consisting of chips and Yuros meat covered in a combination of garlic and chilli sauce with lemon juice drizzled over the top. Even if you don’t end up trying one, visiting the North Adelaide Burger Bar is a reminder of what a proper Fish and Chip Shop should be.
I came late to running. I have always tried to keep pretty active and that often included running while training for football or hockey but it was only recently that I discovered the joy of running for its own sake.
