snake? snake! snaaaaaaaake! Dole Diary 2003 – 2008

I'm outta here. Starting a new blog elsewhere. A big thanks to everyone who followed it over the last five years. I'll be keeping the blog up for archival purposes.

If you'd like the address of my new blog (which I'm putting together right now), just leave a comment or drop me an email. I won't be linking it here because of potential stalkers (seriously). The new blog may not appeal to the old Dole Diary fans – there'll probably less sniping and anarchism, more on other stuff (but there'll still be a bit of the usual stuff).

I think the highlight over the last few years were the interviews I did when I was writing for various street press. It's all been a lot of fun and gave me a sense of purpose during my time on the dole. Also, the friends I've made through blogging here made it worth it.

For any dole bludgers reading this, I wish you luck in your endeavours and don't let the fuckers break your spirit. My advice if you're being hassled by Centrelink is to constantly reschedule. You'll be surprised at how many job interviews exactly coincide with Centrelink appointments.

That's it. –Lumpen.
