I think that describes my feelings perfectly.
Humidity????? I thought you were in Adelaide, home of horrendous heat sans the 'yes i shall stab you in the eye if you so much as breathe in my direction' horror that is humidity?

I prescribe beer - coopers if you have it but icy cold whatever your particular poison

. . . is it just me or would someone else quite like to see a cyclonic wind pick up a rusty post box and smack Leila McKinnon in the head with it?

No, it's just me . . . this heat, it's making me stabby

Just because it isn't a usual occurance doesn't mean it never happens.

You are not the only one! I hate that bitch! Ever since she did that interview with that Corey Worthington idiot - "take off your glasses and apologise!"

Werribee is under siege from mother nature! No Yasi obviously but this is by a long way the most extreme weather I've ever experienced.

Corey Worthington . . . and McKinnon she is just staggeringly awful and I want to switch her off but I just can not look away! Her lack of empathy, particularly in the last few weeks as she has 'covered' the awfulness that has unfolded in queensland, just absolutely flaws me . . . she described the mess that was the mariner in Caldwell as 'stunning' with a big fat smile on her smug little kisser . . .gah . . . I won't start because somebody will get hurt

Agreed. And can that same box take out Mel, Kochie, Karl and anyone else on commercial tv who has used the words "Aussie spirit" in the last month...

And PR, this humidity in Adelbrain has not only addled my brain but my hair as well.
:looks for large hat:

On the point of Julia Gillard's voice, she actually took elocution lessons. Back in the day, apparently some focus group tests were done and the ALP found that people reacted quite negatively to her voice, despite liking what she was saying. Her accent was considered a liability. Hence the elocution lessons to tone it down. I was watching an old episode of The Chaser the other day where Julian Morrow confronts her and the difference in her voice is striking.

(Funny how this worked the other way in the US re: Hillary Clinton '08 ...)

Huh, amazed to see the reports of flash flooding around Melbourne. Last night was a total non-event here in the inner north. There was some brief heavy rain, occasional thunder, and that was it.

I got home from work yesterday and let the cat inside, and literally a minute later is was like somebody threw a bucket over the backyard. No flooding around my area though as far as I could see.

God I wish it rained here. It was 43C yesterday, 42C today. The southerly is supposed to come through tonight ending the heatwave. I don't think it's been under 36C for over a week?

Good lord!

It's a pleasant 18C and somewhat sunny in Melbourne's north right now. It was even cooler when I went out for a walk this morning; the Bureau informs me it was between 14.5 and 16.7. It felt positively autumnal.

That said, there were a few fairly substantial tree limbs lying around as a reminder of the recent wild weather.

By the by, the Sandringham railway line has been closed since Friday evening. I've seen pictures of Windsor railway station - the cutting is flooded, close to platform height. It looks like a canal! They should run some gondolas, Venice-style, to replace the trains.
