Hello. As a fellow Aussie (Victorian), I'd like to join this li'l club, and would like to thank CloudEater for the PM.
Now, some things to stir the pot:
1. I usually support the Libs, but Tony Abbott...seriously, the first election I can vote in is approaching, and I don't like either of the main PM candidates. Abbott's a religious nut who spouts his opinion too much, and Rudd's just a shifty bastard tbh. And don't get me started on STATE politics...
2. Sports. AFL v RUGBY. Which is better? My votes for AFL. It requires way more intellect to play well, and it's way less predictable than rugby. And, you know, we invented it. Also, GO CATS PREMIERS 2007 & 2009! Saints probably should have won (they're my second fav. team), but we'll take what we can get.
3. The Cricket. With Twenty20 seemingly here to stay, should we get rid of the 50 over game? IMO, No. OneDayCricket's been around for some time, and it provides a good middle ground between the long test matches and the super short version of cricket (Twenty20).
Sorry for the infodump, but I don't normally post much, so I make them count.
Also, did anyone else get burned out last year? We did, but we 'only' lost the house; nobody died, so I consider myself lucky. But we're moving on, the house is getting rebuilt, and the house was insured. the contents was underinsured, but again, considering other people were left with nothing, or had rellies die, I'm not complaining one little bit, and consider myself extremely grateful.
Sorry to end this post on a downer near the end of the greatest day ever (Australia Day), but I didn't see it mentioned in the previous posts, so I thought it might be worth a mention. By the way, anyone remember why Jan 26 is Oz Day, FROM MEMORY?
