Ever had the joy of collecting fridge magnets?? It seems really strange to me now to go to a friend's house, and to see that they have a bare fridge. Mine is adorned by at least 20 fridge magnets. Most of them contain advertising material of some kind, although some have been purchased as souvenirs. (The "Seattle" magnet for example.)
In case you're wondering, YES, I am interested in exchanging fridge magnets with other people. Send me some e-mail to bkelley at ozemail dot com dot au. Sorry to all those people who have sent me magnets that I haven't scanned in yet.

this at the 7-11 in King St, Newtown.

repairs cost me a packet, so I reckon I deserved a fridge magnet or two.

figured he didn't really want it, if you know what I mean. Even with colour
palette editing, it's still hard to make out the text.

lives. The outline of the Space Needle is evident.
