Sorry I haven't been around so much. Between the two GREs, PhD apps and the HUGE pile of marking I was recently blessed with, I'm finding life a little messy at the moment. Figuratively and literally. You should see my room. And the loungeroom. Poor Ziggy.

Some bits of life are getting tidier, but:

A garbage truck! And lots of garbos in shiny orange vests, bless their hearts. See how they're scooping up all the rubbish bags with a little dump-truck thingy and tipping it into the big truck? So much garbage. They also spent the better part of a day trimming the trees up and down the street, chopping off branches and making sure the pavements are clear. Recycling is next week. Bring it on!

Off to practise analogies and statistics. See below for Grot and BBB's adventures round Vic and NSW. So pretty!

did you give the garbos a few bottles of VB?

no - far too expensive!

not a bad idea, though. maybe some chocolate?

you should eye them narrowly to show your displeasure at the length of the strike, then shake their hands to show worker solidarity.

viva la election!

everyone loves a mixed message!

*looks nervously at election champagne*

is there a 'laughed silently but with mouth open in more than a smile' texting shortcut?

eg lsbwmoimtas

as opposed to lol

anyway, that's what i did for these comments
