    Oh dear, I don’t meet hardly any of the criteria – but that’s okay, we can still be cyber-friends! I know next to nothing about music, I hate the phone and cricket, and I’m 46. On the plus side – I L.O.V.E. cats, books, and am TOTALLY crazy!

    Good idea! But sorry I don’t meet your criteria – particularly as I live in Darwin. However, I just noticed that we are ‘currently reading’ the same book. I’d be interested to hear what you think of it, if you do a review. I love Aravind Adiga’s writing.

      Oh OK….well I have a friend who met most of this but she left Sydney for London in December and since then I miss having that one friend on weekends and stuff to catch up with as my other friends have partners and spend time with them…plus they don’t have the same music interest.

      Haha…but cricket’s only a desirable criteria… It isn’t essential. πŸ™‚ I do have a few great friends but I certainly need to expand my social group. Glad to hear it worked out well for you.
