Last week I arrived in Adelaide, and besides visiting Kangaroo Island, I really have not done much.
The day I got here I went out with a friend I used to work with and got drunk. Since that, I’ve lounged around, been a grown up and googled visas and the requirements I need for the countries I’m visiting later this year. I was thinking about going bush walking but it would have been pretty sweaty and a wine tour, though I can do one in Western Australia.
During the evenings I’ve been to the Fringe Festival. I saw one comedian who was just was not funny, and another show taking the piss out of the Marvel series, whilst entertaining was a bit too nerdy for me. There’s a show called Shit Faced Shakespeare where one of the actors gets hammered before the show – for anyone who was worked with me on a weekend morning or been on a night out with me would know that it’s something that I’d like to see, and it was great. The following night I saw the comedian Stephen K Amos, who was hilarious; I’ve not laughed so much in a while.
Today, I’m off to Perth and have a few things planned. I was going to go up to Darwin and then Cairns, however, both places have rain/cyclones forecast for the next two weeks. It’d probably be quite amusing if I were to end up in a shelter again and try to get into more newspapers/world news interviews, but I think I’d pass that one. Instead, I’m returning to Melbourne early and have a job interview lined up.
