I didn't know that... but now that you mention it, yes you should have!

So you've gone from manipulating the political system to manipulating vertebrae?

See, the wonderful thing about genuine apathy is that it doesn't take any effort to apathetically ignore things...

We've just got a recurring dose of the old Howling Wind here at the moment... interspersed with bits of bright sunshine. Go figure!

But listing reasons why they're wrong is so much fun.

Gotta love Melbourne. We got a short bit of sunlight a little while ago, but otherwise it's been entirely dull in my part of the city.

Summer '68 has a vote in the PF survivor. We're all doomed.

Arr... ooh, sun here for about ten seconds!!

I'm kinda wishing the landlords took that tree out of the front lawn when they said they would (ie, last week)... I don't particularly want it to go, but my car's under it and it'd be just my luck if the bloody thing dropped a branch in all this wind.

I know it or Sorrow won't win, but I'm still hoping one of them does.

Summer '68/Wish You Were Here/Comfortably Numb for me. Anything else would be terrible. Sorry, I just don't get what makes Sorrow so special.

Is it just me, or do landlords and tradespeople in this city take for-fucking-ever to do anything? I had windows that weren't fully insulated last winter because things took so fucking long to happen.

My user title is completely nonsensical, yet fits for some reason.
