and recommended this citrus mint number in its place.
I can't say no to a dude with "I am the lizard king" tattooed on his
arm, so here it is in lovely cocktail glory.
The only way to describe this would be - many flavours in succession.
It starts with the salty-sour lime, followed by a wave of mint, then
lemon zest and finally the potency of god-knows-what went in there.
This is a win-win concoction. Melbourne: 1, Sandy: 1.
The city was barely awake as we made our way by taxi to the little
hotel in Carlton.
Check-in was ten million hours away, so we killed time over toast and
tea, then a wander round the shops for a couple hours.
There's a lot to see and do here. The architecture's lovely. Malls and
crowds are like perth, same density, just more. It's like this city is
the "cream of" version of whatever soup you would use to describe home.
Our hotel room is tiny and one of my travel companions insists on
walking round half dressed at all times. Perhaps I shall seek my
revenge with the power of the Internet.
Had the best nap ever. It's 5pm-ish now and we're ready to explore
again. Maybe Chinatown, it's time for food.
Aussie soccer on the telly. Wob still walking around half-dressed.

home, in bed, belly full of pizza from Stone's in mt lawley.
Flying off to Melbourne in a few days. Wee lil weekend trip with a
coupla mates for some chilling out, shopping and maybe a bloody Mary
tour of the cocktail bars on their itinerary.
Really hoping to find a nice pair of new bathers for summer; my old
ones have gone a bit saggy and ill-fitting. Really also hoping that a
nice one won't be too expensive cos I bet there won't be much in the
way of a tax return this year, if last year's $30 is anything to go by.
So very very knackered. Cutting this short for bed. Nite!
