Journal Entry:
Drove into Noosa Heads for a huge breakfast. Ended up in a bookstore - new Tom Robbins, Neal Stephenson, and Tom Clancy - I bought them all. Stopped at the "Giant Pineapple" - a huge kitsch monstrosity off the freeway. Called home for a long talk with the parents - good news, the same day my grandma turned 90 my cousin had a baby girl! Drove the rest of the way into Brisbane looked around for accommodation, ended up at a posh hotel - tomorrow I'll hook up with my friend Jason.
