We found out that by some freak of nature - that the building manager of the Robson St apartment decided to give the apartment to 2 Aussies without jobs or bank accounts! Because she has had Australian tenants in the past and -said in thick romanian accent- "they are very cleeeeeaaan". I have no idea who we were up against, but she showed us the pile of applications - and somehow we managed to get the apartment! So, we now have keys and swipe key - and we move in on the weekend. I'm excited! Paul is saving his enthusiasm for when he gets a job... given that we just signed the lease for 12 months. Stay tuned for some photos. Now, the furniture hunt begins... :o)

Last night we went to see Ben Lee. Of course, I thought that cameras might be confiscated - so didn't bring it. He played in this realy small bar with a balcony - which we sat with perfect views. He was about 10 metres away and I could see his every facial expression. So, when every man and their dog had cameras... I was a bit bummed that I didn't bring mine! He played a great concert as he always does. It was just him and his keyboard/backup singer chick - but they put on a great show. I dragged a couple of Canadians along and they really enjoyed it too! Apparently he's coming back in May to support someone 'really big' but couldn't give away any details. He sang quite a few oldies - pre Breathing Tornadoes, but most were from 'Awake' and he sang a few new ones too. A guy in the audience was on the phone to his fiance in Australia and Ben took the phone and had a conversation with her on stage! It was cute! He said to her: "Hi, this is Ben Lee - I'm just having a quiet night with 300 of my closest friends" hehe!

Then someone gave him a 'hoff' t-shirt! hahah!

Then the "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie!!" started... you can take the Aussie out of Australia...
