theres a real sloppiness that pervades everything here. the way people dress, the food they eat, the buildings they erect, the music they play etc. i find it quite distressing. i like things to be done well, with pride. and here thats very rarely the case. the sydney dream is drinking enormous quantites of weak lager in front of the sport on tv, preferably while wearing a vest and a pair of shorts. maybe im being a bit harsh but after 2 years i feel like i have some right to cast judgement. i'd move back to auckland in a shot, or even melbourne.
