Hehe...

It's sort of ironic that the Anglican theological college which trains pretty much all of the Anglican ministers in Australia is on the edge of gay old Newtown. Guess it's good practice for them, trying to find a pub to drink at which doesn't recreate the "Blue Oyster" experience from Police Academy.

Edit: ARJ, have you tried Cordobes on King St for pizza? I haven't tried any pizza overseas, but for Australian pizza it's pretty good, IMO. Damn, I wish they opened at lunchtimes (I work in Chippendale, so walking to Newtown for lunch isn't out of the question).

Ironic?
Nah, but it does explain a few things.....

I always go by there on my way up King St and think, "I have to try this place and see if it's as good as it advertises." But I usually get pizza from one of the places up Enmore Rd, or delivery from Marrickville, which is good and has the thicker crust that I like. There are just too many good places to eat out around there that I haven't got around to it yet.

Why do people make such a fuss over the Chippendales?

Most aussie men are better looking than them.

Heh...

Guess I better do some retouching on my GC photo album photo, otherwise no one will believe I'm a chippendale, huh [Big Grin]

TFD: You're probably right, but I thought the main criteria for a chippendale was how well one filled out one's speedos [Eek!]

The real story, is of course here

Wow, ARJ, that's dedication! I hope it's serving you well. I just sold my original TiBook, and have moved up to a company-provided PowerBook 17... (alternately referred to as Lapzilla or LunchTray, depending on open or closed config...)

Glad to hear you and WA are still geeking and coding [Smile]

I'm still geeking out at MacCenter, but doing more marketing than web development [Roll Eyes]

As always, at your service. [Big Grin]

This is a luxury for me, the forums got banned at my school, I guess that the administrators think human interaction is "bad"

Hello ARJ.

It's been a while for me as well! I wonder if anyone remembers me. It might be more difficult, because I wasn't the one wearing those white go-go boots.
