Welcome to Townsville, the most ridiculously-named place in Australia, according to Noj! Only it's more like farewell to Townsville, as I move on to Cairns in the morning. Let me catch you up on the last few days.
Steve, as it turned out, was not just a nice lad, but actually full on hilarious once you got to know him a bit (in my opinion, at least; he had that incredibly dry sense of humour that just slays me). Hung out with him and a German couple on Saturday night, and had a lot of fun taking the piss out of each other. We also watched that hideous Robin Williams thing, RV, which I was thoroughly dismayed to discover also stars Kristen Chenoweth, Jeff Daniels and Will Arnett. I guess the credit crunch is hitting everyone. We were initially trying to hide from our crazed roommate (I swear to God, the lunatics just flock towards me and embrace me as their queen), who I never once saw sober in the whole three days, but no such luck, because he soon followed us down. Fortunately, he passed out shortly after joining us in the TV room. We ignored him and had good natured arguments about Vegemite.
I move on to Cairns tomorrow, and then I'll be home in less than a week. It's gone very fast, this time in Australia.
Oh. The other thing that's inducing me to get home - I must have somewhere in the region of 70 bedbug bites now, I'm pretty sure they're living in my backpack. I can't wait to get home, I will spend a week in the steam room until every last little critter is no more.
