I’m watching the election count right now.  Liberals are leading.  Enough said.


Two days after the election now, and it’s a hung parliament.  Now for the ‘backroom machinations’ and negotiating with the one Green and couple of independents.  Ah…the joy of being an independent…


One item of curiosity – I don’t know anyone my age who would vote (seriously) for Tony Abbott.  Now if you do, and you read this, I’m not saying you can’t vote for him.  I just disagree with a lot of his policies.  Why doesn’t anyone seem to like him though?  Is it just the people at our school? 

Do what your parents vote for/lean towards influence your own political beliefs?  My parents never say anything positive about Liberals, and the other main party is obviously Labor.  So is there a reason why I always prefer Labor over Liberal subconsciously?

What would you do if you were a politician, and your partner/spouse was a politician of another party?  Would that work out?  I came across this question when I was reading an article about Belinda Neal and her husband John Della Bosca, who were both Labor politicians.  Could you come home and have a deep and meaningful discussion with him/her without your beliefs/party lines clashing?  Be on opposite campaigns?


Today was the physics NQE.  It was…uninteresting…and there was a stupid question about giraffe necks.  Honestly.  Just give the ‘waist-necked giraffe’ a dozen smaller lozenges!  And what is a waist-necked giraffe anyway?  A giraffe can’t have a neck at the waist…that wouldn’t be a giraffe then!  *googles it*

Such a thing doesn’t exist.

Did nothing constructive for the rest of the day. 

Here, have a really nice sounding song:

“The fascination of shooting as a sport depends almost wholly on whether you are at the right or wrong end of the gun.”
P. G. Wodehouse (1881 – 1975)
