you leave the country for a measly eighteen months and it turns into a place you're proud to belong to.

i have so much hope for what australia might become.

i wish i was there for these historic events.

when I got to work yesterday they were playing 'From Little Things, Big Things Grow' on the radio, and i thought "it's going to be a good day."

then i found out about the racism of some of my colleagues and the day got less good.

the end.

A fabbo day, despite the lingering and erradicable racism of a minority.

A very important day for Oz.

groteaux - oy! rude!

glad you are enjoying teaching again. you know you've always been my hero and everything i would like to be - i can fly higher than an eagle. . .

bbb - yes, very exciting! i tried to whip up some excitement here, but most ppl didn't get it. not enough context.
