I need to vent that I have a colleague at work where things did not turn out. I dont want to go into the details other than to say that everytime I think I have got over her 'she pulls me back in!' It is by way of coming by my desk, emailing or messaging me for work related stuff, or I somehow get dragged back via other co-workers we are jointly on good terms with. I am looking forward to the day when I switch companies and I have her out of sight and hopefully out of...
Every time someone has tried to set me up it has ended up a bigger dissapoint for the person who set me up than for me or the girl. I had found in my cases that the person doing the setting up had overly emotionally invested in the end result rather than thinking through whether I and the girl for that matter had anything in common. I do therefore not believe in setting people up.

Just dont do what I did ..... think Venice Mestre and Venice are the one and same thing if booking accomodation online. Was suprisingly cheap and then realised why. While in Venice if you like sweets try the wallnut and apple roll/strudel ...i think it is called a 'Miele'
I had a pear of loakes that brought tears to my eyes and increased my blood pressure. After much pain and coming close to throwing them away, they now fit beautifully.
I would skip Zagreb and go to Belgrade. The night life and cosmopolitan culture beats Zagreb hands down. When it Belgrade at night head down to the pontoons on the Sava and Danube.
Adding to the bike discussion what has been missed has been the poor pedestrian. I don't think a morning passes in the Sydney CBD where you dont get an idiot on a bike running the pedestrian green light and almost taking someone out. (see Park and George St intersection) Nothing against bikes but bike riders need to also adhere to road rules. I will also add that Sydney is by design and by terrain a poor place to ride a bike. Cannot compare Sydney to places like...
