A Vampire in Melbourne

I slipped into Melbourne this afternoon and was greeted by a busy city and hot weather. I checked into my first hostel since maybe Beijing and got put into my own room because of some overbooking (tomorrow I have to share with five other people). I had a lot on my mind so I decided to nap... for four hours. Late at night I walked through the Prahran area to have a look around. The scene was similar to Sydney and Brisbane, people in their 20s-30s, wooping it up in bars and clubs. Smartly dressed and soon to be stumbling home. This only made me wonder more about the kind of existence I want for myself. I returned to my room with snacks and jumped online (free wifi!) to catch up on web garbage. I've still got a lot on my mind but I picked up some notepads from the supermarket. I'm going to make a bigger effort to get my thoughts down on paper. [the "creepy notepad" returns]

Hey look, I've almost made my way round the whole planet. I'm like two or three more lines from home.

    Isn't it a bit old to still have the "party-on" mentality?

    Most people retire at 65. If you are already 30, then you should be half way away from retirement.

    Uh, I guess you are counting your days to the grave. If so , I would say you need to party a bit more than think about your retirement. Your parents did a number on you. Let loose and go have a beer already.

    And Tony, Fuck this guy! Party on!! The guys at the firehouse are very envious of you. We all wish we could be in Australia right now. Oh, but we are counting are days until retirement. Nothing better than thinking about the number of days to your grave. What an idiot. Still can't put a name to the comment.
