*grin* Australia's good :) It's always had a strong secular tradition so being an atheist here has never been seen as a big issue - or any sort of issue for that matter lol. A very different feel than I get from a lot of The Americans on here - I thought gays had issues with closets - it seems to be almost worse for atheists in the States *grin*
I have made some really interesting friends here in a short time, people from all around the world - It's really interesting to talk to an atheist from cultures so different to ours :)
Thank you so much for the sweet comments about my sense of aesthetics - I really do enjoy mixing up all the styles lol. And I couldn't agree more about the future being disappointing - my diet growing up was sci-fi and all it's children, cyberpunk and steampunk :) so we are kindred souls!
