Cooked my first meal in the hostel tonight. Took some pride in the fact that of the 15 people that came through the kitchen I was one of the three that acctauly made a propper meal.

That said, making my Risotto was a real trial, I had trouble just finding the stuff I needed to make the meal. I've seen pieces of wood sharper than the knives in the hostel. The rice refused to take the water for aaaages, probably because I couldn't find risotto rice to make it with. It was worth it though, nothing is quite as satifying as eating a meal you've cooked yourself.

Met a guy down the pub after, told me about a rentshare house for $450 a month downtown. Like many other foolish people I know he seemed to think there was some stock in the fact that I was so young and coming here alone. It might be a little too pricy for me to manage, I'll run the figures sometime tommorow and check. That said, I want out of the hostel and the sooner the better.

I was surprised you can't get risotto rice. I think you need to make further enquiries.

We had Tuna Salad tonight. You would have enjoyed it.

Keep up with the cooking. Moose steaks or something local!!

Sorry, was it that obvious?
How about a bowl of moose-ley instead?
Or a hot cup of moun-tea?

I've had a flying moose burger. Turns out it was made of beef though...
