How can I be back at work already? I was only on holidays for a minute!
Though it's not like I actually went anywhere or did anything. I consumed a small ocean worth of alcohol and watched a mind-numbing, butt-wearying amount of pay TV. That's all. It was a proud moment for Australia when John Howard was quoted on the Fox news bar as saying that Saddam's execution was a "great victory for Iraq", though it does prove that the man is at least going insane (Now, now little Johnny! You're supposed to be against the death penalty!)
And we saw in 2007 at the World's Biggest Custard Pie Fight. (Thank you for coming. For everyone else, I could explain, but I think I'd just rather leave this hanging there).
Nonetheless, the big story for 2007, at least around this end, will of course be the state election in March, and the Federal election, which will be in October. Or November. Unless it's in September. Unless I'm wrong, and it will be some other date.
But I've decided I'm not going to be a namby-pamby, "You may have a point there" leftist anymore. The only way the left is going to drag itself out of theis topor is if we fight the conservatives with their own weapons: fury and mistruths. I plan on doing my bit. I Am A Furious Leftist.
Time to rent out "Network", that classic 70's flick.ReplyDelete

Do you know, I've never seen it. My local DVD store has a woeful selection of films from before about 2003. Hopefully it'll be on foxtel oneday.ReplyDelete
