They paved paradise...

Now, that is freaky and more than a little depressing...
pmcray was suggesting that to avoid the Cameron Prime Minstership, I should flee to Sydney with my 3 colleagues who have already gone there (along with the two Australians making up our fine team over there). Whilst Sydney would not be top of my list of places to flee to, I was extolling the virtue of a particular place I saw whilst being shown round by one of the aforementioned colleagues, a bay that I rather liked the look of and jokingly said that I would go there for a year if I could have one of those houses. Rather depressingly it looks very much like the very house is being sold to be redeveloped into something more expensive.

This upsets me much more than it rationally should, given that this wasn't a remotely serious proposition.

Anyway, I am a great believer in 'wherever you go, there you are'. I couldn't even begin to make a list of places I would like to live, I don't really think that way.
