Brisbane is one of the more built up cities that we've been to so far. Although I loved the parks, botanical gardens, animal sancturies bla bla bla, I was in need of serious retail shopping. There were lots of clothing stores and natural yogurt aromatherapy soap stores. I felt very self-conscious because the girls were all wearing black, very tall and skinny. In comparison, I felt rather dumpy and uncool with my bright, green T-shirt and tennis shoes. It's a wonder the men even looked at me. But they did, I swear! They either thought I was gorgeous or just shook their heads feeling very sad for me.
I could live here but I would definitely develop an eating disorder, physical complex and shopping addiction. Would that be so bad now?
We lazed around in the Botanical Gardens for a couple hundred hours and..surprise! there was the Queensland University of Technology right next to it. We picked up Sharlene who is currently studying there...or pretending to at least. I mean who could ever study in a place like that! It's Gorrrr-geous. I'm thinking about going back to school now.
