Got this in the email from my mad mate Beaver. Apparently it's all over town.

YOU KNOW YOU LIVE IN SYDNEY WHEN ...

- You make over $100,000 per year and still can't afford a house.

- You never bother looking at the train timetable because you know the
drivers have never seen it.

- You order organic fruit and vegetables online, but eat out every night anyway.

- You spent more money on your coffee machine than on your washing machine.

- You spend $200+ for your room in an apartment with stunning harbour/beach
views and European appliances; and then spend a total of 40 hours each
week there (37 of which you are sleeping).

- You contemplate calling a taxi from your home to where you managed to park
the car the night before.

- You spend 30 minutes in a traffic jam next to a car with more power to its
speakers than its wheels.

- You know everyone's e-mail and mobile number but not their last name or
home address.

- You can roll sushi, make pasta and keep your red curry paste recipe under
lock and key...but couldn't roast a chicken to save your life.

- Your taxi driver was a micro-surgeon before he moved to Australia.

- Your co-worker tells you he/she has 8 body piercings but none are
visible.

- You can't remember....is dope illegal?

- You've been to more than one baby shower that has two mothers and a sperm
donor.

- You have a very strong opinion where your coffee beans are grown and can
taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

A really great parking space can move you to tears.

- You are thinking of taking an adult class but you can't decide between
yoga, aromatherapy, conversational Italian, French or building your own website.

- A man in full leather regalia and crotchless chaps gets on the bus. You
don't notice.

- A woman with live poultry gets onto the bus. You don't notice.

- You keep a list of companies to boycott.

- You are genuinely surprised when you meet someone who was actually born in
Sydney (but then, they are Swiss/Thai/Brazilian).

- Your hairdresser is straight, your plumber is gay, the woman who delivers
your mail is straight.... and your Avon Lady is a drag queen.
