The last 2 days I have done very little, pure money saving mode. I had very little response from the emails I sent out the other day so decided to get out of Brisbane and try my luck in Cairns. The LP states there is "tourism" and "fishing trawlers" work at this time of year, so basically bar work or being stuck on a boat for 2 weeks, which won't be happening with the world cup around the corner!

So what did I do? Absolutely nothing! I sat around the hostel all day watching crap on TV, and I mean crap like Judge Judy, Wheel of Fortune and Deal or no Deal. The highlight of the day came at 6:30 when it was Neighbours and Big Brother back-to-back! Fantastic stuff! I haven't watched this much TV since Sydney and yet still know what's going on in Neighbours after 1 episode.

The only time I left the hostel was to get some crap food at the train station. I hate the hostel so I won't put any more money in their coffers! Trying to vary my diet between KFC, Mc D's and the Chinese slop tray place. Best bargain was the 10 piece sushi set for $5! A steal!

One other incident to re-enforce my view of the hostel was whilst watching Family Guy, in a packed TV room, and the owner wouldn't let us watch the last 2 minutes of the programme because it was closing time! How petty!

Oh well, haven't my days been interesting? Hope you're all jealous.
