Anyway, today's topic is Australian blogs that are kind of similar to mine but better. I also reckon these guys are still quite underrated within the blogosphere, so hopefully they might gain a couple of extra readers from this listing.
1. Bland Canyon
Bland Canyon is written by 'PetStarr', a 25 year old chick from Adelaide. Her posts are really witty and show a healthy disregard for pop culture and life in general.
Check out Worst fancy dress costumes ever, like this little beauty:
or Why video shops suck as good examples of her rant-style posts.
2. Audrey and the Bad Apples
I love Audrey. I reckon she's one of the bloggers I'd most like to meet in real life because she's really funny and easy going.
Audrey is a frustrated wannabe writer, who aspires to write for Neighbours, but has been rejected by Frankie magazine and is currently on the dole.
Audrey writes about television and pop culture, but also about bigger issues that affect her, such as this recent post on abortion, which was quite possibly the best blog post I've ever read.
She's into books; she's into feminism... she's a girl after my own heart.
I've just started reading GBE and she seems like a pretty cool chick. She writes about her daily life in Queensland, such as her recent encounter with a mouse. I can empathise with her here, as I too had a mouse in my bedroom the other night, and much as I love animals, I don't love them scurrying around my room in the wee hours of the morning.
These last two aren't anything like my blog really, but I love them both and I'm sure you will too.
Jeut is great. He posts cartoons about his everyday work life and love life that manage to say a great deal in just a few words. His is one of the best new blogs I've seen in ages. I'll let his stuff speak for itself:

5. What's this on my hand?
I believe Jobe is a comedian. Or at least a wannabe comedian. He's quite funny. He reminds me of Demetri Martin with his one-liners. An example:
Today I saw a lady fall down the escalator. It was like seeing someone fall down the stairs. But faster.
Honourable Mentions this week go to Melbourne girls Reasons You Will Hate Me, A Wild Young Under Whimsy and Melbourne Human Female. They're all great blogs, but I reckon they're also big enough not to need my endorsement.
As for me, I had a pretty big weekend. Work dinner and Panic on Friday; a housewarming and the most elaborate 21st I've ever been to on Saturday (apparently the budget was around $10,000). Relationship issue of the week is that the boy and I are still working out how to act like a couple in front of other people. You think we'd be down with it after all this time, but we aren't there yet. Sigh.
