Hi Thornbush
Having lived in both Sydney and Melbourne (and also Brisbane, Ballarat and now Launceston), and having lived in Melbourne for 18 years, I can assure you that it isn't boring! In many ways, its much more vibrant than Sydney.

Here's a song by Weird Al that's got my name written all over it:

I have websites, ph.d., chess team, star wars, etc. Even the hybrid prius in the video is like the one I own. :jedi:
