Been busy, so it's meme time [Jan. 12th, 2006|12:01 pm]

The problem with LJ: We all think we are so close, but really we know nothing about each other. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away.

How you started attending Swancon?

In 1989, Get Stuffed, a fanzine I was involved with was up for the Ditmar award. That year the two Natcons, Media and Lit, were a week and a continent apart. Canberra and Perth. Ian Gunn, James Allen and myself decided to go to both, driving in a loaned and as it turned out, humourously unreliable Toyota van.

Loved the drive over the Nullarbor, loved Swancon. This year will be my 14th Swancon (I think, need to check that, might only be 13th).

Do you plan to ever return to droving?

I'd love to but it's very unlikely. To return to the sort of droving that would keep us near a city means I'd be dealing with cattle, and it's due to a cattle illness that I had to finish.

To go work on sheep stations would mean either being away from Sharon for months at a time or dragging her to live in an environment where she would be deeply unhappy.

Words cannot express how deeply I miss my old life.

Melbourne suburbs, with occasional jaunts to the bush for up to a month. Suburbs in order from childhood to now... Richmond, Clayton, Richmond again, Armadale, South Oakleigh, The Victoria Hotel for a week, Fitzroy, Coburg, Thornbury, South Oakleigh, Noble Park, Carlisle in W.A. for two months and finally, back to South Oakleigh one last time.

Since 1989, I've wanted to move to Perth.
*fingers crossed* Next year I may be moving to Central Australia.

Oh, just come and live in Perth. If I'm not going to move to Melbourne, the least all my coolest friends could do is come and live back here.

It's actually a possibility, if we last a few years in central Aus, that we'll then move to W.A. There's lots of variables, but Sharon likes W.A. as well.
