Anyway, fast forward to yesterday. Sylvie and I decided to go to brunch and IKEA in Richmond, a suburb just a few minutes away from the CBD. This story isn't about food, for once, other than to note that Three Bags Full in Richmond has THE BEST avo toast I've had thus far in Melbourne, and that's saying something:
Seriously go there now.
Anyway, on our way to IKEA, Sylvie and I were walking down a residential sidewalk when we noticed a guy about 20 feet ahead of us. He looked to by examining his arm, but as we got closer, it became clear that he was in fact injecting some sort of drug. As we decided to cross to the other side of the street in an effort to avoid him, I realized it was Toga Guy!!! What are the chances? Anyway, you realize you've been living in a city for awhile when you start to recognize its crazies.
And now, random pictures from the weekend:
We had to stop and admire (and almost buy) these three adorable puppies at the pet store.
Sylvie went to IKEA intending to buy curtains, but mostly just admired/tried to buy the clothing props in the closet section.
On Saturday night Peter and I went to American-style Big Boys BBQ. It was pretty good, but not quite up to our standards as former Missouri residents. Plus they didn't serve sweet tea!
