a The Transit Lounge: The Fantastic Four

Back in the Day: I had a quarter life crisis, headed to Osaka, Japan for the unknown–only to discover that a passport plane ride are not necessarily a ticket to escape. Some Years Later: Settled back in Oz, the man of my dreams ended up in Tokyo for work–which is how a passport and plane ride showed me home is where the heart is. And Now: Well as luck would have it, we are about to embark on Japan Mark 3, with a baby in tow and another on the way...

The Fantastic Four

Motivated once again by Tam, I decided to answer some questions I've never thought about before.

Four people you would like to meet & the questions you'd ask them:



Einstein - You honestly didn't realise that's what they'd use it for?
Britney Spears - In relation to K-Fed what kind of crack were you smoking?
Bill Gates - Can you spare some change?
Robbie Williams - When?

Four monuments/places you have seen & would like to see again:

Cape Tribulation, Australia
Mt Fuji, Japan
Prague, Czech Republic
Berlin, Germany

Four favorite words:

Rock!
mecha (meaning very)
narcissism
flamboyant

Four cities with delicious food:

Melbourne
Bangkok
Seoul
Amsterdam

Four (nonfiction/fiction) books you would recommend:

Of Dogs and Demons - Alex Kerr
The Enchanted Wood - Enid Blyton
Dope Stories - Howard Marks
No Logo - Naomi Klein

Four jobs you've had:
Dental Assistant - only in japan when your school goes bankrupt can you land a job in the medical profession the very next day. Just wear a white lab coat and everyone's fine about it!
Vet Nurse - partime highschool/uni job
Maccas Drive Thru Biatch - my highschool parttime job.
Television Production Co-ordinator if you wanna be p.c. about it. More like overworked production biatch for stars and "higher" crew too lazy to do anything for themselves.

Four quick answers:

Insomnia — Too often
Allergies — Melbourne always, Japan rarely ever (not so much nature here)
Road rage — More like bicycle rage where I am
Daydreams - Always, and I'm at the centre of everything.
