honestly can't stand any more "OMG THE MWF " articles any more. The writer's festival is more open, a bit different and not just people sitting on a panel and talking at people.

@joshsharp well that explains it
@lrhodes sure whatever
I put out some apples for the possum but the currawongs ate them.
