Sorry CR, Even though you Englishmen are doing quite well today in the cricket at the WACA I am afraid its time to rub it in that the poms are 2-0 down in this ashes series and highly likely to be returning home ashless. Since the third test is being played in WA I am commemorating the occasion with the following story. Enjoy! A Diary of a Pom In Karratha August 31st Just got transferred with work into our new home in Karratha, Western Australia, now this is a town that knows how to live!! Beautiful sunny days and warm balmy evenings. What a place! I watched the sunset from a deck chair on the veranda. It was beautiful. I've finally found my my home. I love it here. September 13th Really heating up. Got to 35 today. Not a problem. Live in an air-conditioned home, drive an air-conditioned car. What a pleasure to see the sun everyday like this. I'm turning into a sun worshipper. September 30th Had the backyard landscaped with tropical plants today. Lots of palms and rocks. What a breeze to maintain. No more mowing lawn for me. Another scorcher today, but i love it here. October 10th This temperature hasn't been below 35 all week. How do people get used to this kind of heat. At least today it's kind of windy though. But getting used to the heat is taking longer than I expected. October 15th Fell asleep by the pool. Got 3rd degree burns over 60% of my body. Missed 3 days of work. What a dumb thing to do. I learned my lesson though. Got to respect the ol' sun in a climate like this. October 20th I missed Kitty (our cat) sneaking into the car when I left this morning. By the time i got to the hot car for lunch, Kitty had died and swollen up to the size of a shopping bag and stank up the $3,000 leather upholstery. I told the kids that she ran way. The car now smells like Wiskettes and cat sh1t. I learned my lesson though. No more pets in this heat. October 25th The wind sucks. It feels like a giant fxxking blow dryer!! And its hot as hell. The home air-conditioner is on the blink and the AC repairman charged $200 just to drive over and tell me he needed to order parts. October 30th Been sleeping outside by the pool for 3 nights now. Bloody $600,000 house and we can't even go inside. Why did I ever come here November 4th Its 38 degrees. Finally got the ol' air-conditioner fixe today. It cost $1,500 and gets the temp down to 25, but the bloody humidity makes the house feel like its about 30. Stupid repairman. I hate this stupid fxxkin place. November 8th If another wise arse cracks, "hot enough for you today" I'm going to fxxkin throttle him. Fxxkin heat! By the time I get to work, the car's radiator was boiling over, my clothes are soaking fukin wet, and I smell like baked cat!! November 9th Tried to run some messages after work. Wore shorts, and sat on the black leather seats in the ol' car. I though my fxxkin arse was on fire. I lost two layers of flesh and all the hair on the back of my legs and my fxxkin arse. Now my car smells like burnt hair, fried ass and baked cat. November 10th The weather report might as well be a fxxkin recording. Hot and sunny. Hot and sunny. Hot and fukin sunny. It's been too hot to do anything for 2 damn months and the weatherman says it might really warm up next week. Doesn't it ever rain in this damn fukin place? Water rationing will be next, so my $5,000 worth of palms just might dry up and bow into the fukin pool. Even the palms can't live in this fxxkin heat. November 14th Welcome to HELL!!!! Temperature got to 41 today. Now the air-conditioner's gone in my car. The repairman came to fix i and said "hot enough for you today?" My wife had to spend the $2,500 mortgage payment to bail my ass out of fail for assaulting the stupid fxxker. Fxxk Karratha! What kind of sick demented fukin idiot would want to live here? December 1st WHAT????? This is the first day of Summer??? You are fxxkin kiddin!!!
Hah ! What can I say.my sister likes it well enough in Sydney and my niece is some young champion board-surfer and I cant understand a word she says. Not for me of course,all those snakes,crap beer and no books to read :-)
You're right about the beer. The uncultured slur can be somewhat justified in the past but most things are on offer in Sydney/Melbourne these days - just need to look. We keep it in reserve though for our favourite friends from the mother country. What makes up for any loss is an absolute delight to watch these 'English Folk' come out here for holidays or resettlement and try to adapt to this really harsh environment. Floods, fire, sharks, crocs, most poisonous snakes and spiders, unrelenting heat and humidity, desert, rip off house and car prices. And then there are the raw, uncultured, uncouth culture of your convict cousins.. The tradition of watching the poms adapt to all this is priceless - and well, taking the ashes away from our masters from the north is just the icing on the cake. Couldn't help rubbing it in but things just wouldn't be the same down here if we didn't have those poms to stir up:-)
New Zealand looks nice:-)
Lol on the culture....my bro in law who is a bok and not exactly Noel Coward himself said of the Aussies in Brisbane that they "were not terribly sophisticated" :-) Needless to say my sis and he didnt stay in Brisbane long
.... my son who had a gap year in Sydney cant wait to go back
I am not into Brisbane at all. Way too humid and way too ordered. Too much concrete as well - like a developers dream. Totally reliant upon mining so when mining busts the outrageous housing prices will just tumble. It is growing in culture quickly though but coming a significantly more raw background than down in the southern states. Outback Queensland would be a nightmare for me so I don't go there.Kiwi's are good value and from what I know of the place is fantastic to explore. Travelled extensively in Europe but yet to venture over the Tasman Sea to NZ. It is on the agenda!
