so, there's an australian store called "ta" across the street from my apartment. they sell typically australian products like meat pies, lamingtons, vegemite and weetbix (and even black and gold brand....weird). i have not been in on the basis that my fellow aussie/montrealer informed me of the price of a small jar of vegemite. wait for it...$10.50!!!!! outrageous.
so in protest i'm seeing if i can live without "black death" for 6 months. i remember the first time i discovered that other countries don't have vegemite (more recently than you'd think). i died a little inside. two and a half months in, i'm seriously craving some of that delicious salty yeast extract. i don't care what you say amanda palmer. vegemite is finger lickin good.
ahem...care package...ahem who said that?
