I need more of it.

Tonight I spent entirely too much time reading Aurelius' blog trying to decipher all the place names mentioned. When I first started reading his blog, he was talking about moving from "Rome" to "Jerusalem". It didn't take long to realise that he was actually an Aussie, and then talking about seeing the footy at the Gabba clinched it. He was in Brisbane. Finally this post today made me decide to go back to the beginning and try and sort it all out. I'm up to February so far, and will refrain from asking my questions (scandal that made the news? legal saga?) to the end. I am guessing that Rome is Canberra, Jerusalem is Brisbane, although I have no idea where Judea and Ostia are meant to be. Probably one of them is Sydney, but I'll have to keep reading to get more clues. Unless Aurelius would like to share here :) The funny thing is, the deliberate act of renaming everything makes me even more intrigued about this dude. Even more so that some of the blogs I read whose names I never knew and didn't even realise that I didn't know them (eg mushroom).

So anyway. What I *should* have been doing tonight was the washing, changing the water in fish tank #5, doing the washing up and changing the url for my blog. Which I'm about to go off and do. See you on the other side (hopefully :) )

In the time of the Empire, Ostia was a lawless smelly port city just down the road from Rome.
And Judea was the province that Jerusalem was in.

So Ostia is Sydney and Judea is Queensland?

Well, that depends on your perspective.. heh .. how about Wollongong? (or I should just read the clues again, it may make more sense)
