Well this USED to be a music blog but it seems it’s time to write about other things. God knows what you’ll find here now. I’m still not sure myself.

Rest assured though that some things will never change. I still enjoy long walks on the beach, basket weaving, playing the recorder, roasting chestnuts on an open fire and training my pet kangaroo to fetch. I go to the polls because I have to, but I don’t understand why we have to vote in pencil. When I grow up I’m going to be a parking inspector, because I think all people should have the right to draw on other people’s cars and litter on their windscreens.

And no, my name is not really Agnes. Sadly.

  11. itallstarted said:

    I’m not from Melbourne, but I do head down there from time to time to check out the odd gig or two, or to go to the footy. Am glad that I don’t live there, not fan of traffic and loads of people! Great place to go for a visit though.

  12. it is a great place to visit

  13. Well Agnes (that name is great), glad to meet ya. On my blogroll now as I need to get here more often!

  14. I was reading this, and thought, what a nice person. Oh, it’s Agnes. A woman. Ah, only women are nice. Men never like such things.

    p.s. What really made me smile was the ‘when i grow up’ phrase, because i used to say that too.
