It is possible to be repulsed and disgusted at the behaviour of elements of auspol and also roll your eyes that once again a political journalist is talking to other political journalists and making it all about political journalism.

It’s not being locked down that is doing my head in. It’s that my neighbours are also locked down. I’d love to eat my lunch outside in the sun but someone has been drilling and sawing and sanding all day for weeks.

Get notification that friend is reading "She Who Became the Sun" and had a brief moment of squee that there was a new book in the Library at Mount Char universe.

The actual book sounds great, but a book about life in Carolyn's world after millennia of being the Sun would too.

Distinctly remember this exact same discussion about music, movies, and fashion in the 1990s. God damn lazy Zoomers can't even invent their own discourse. Or something.

Only an android would think video calls needed _fewer_ body language cues.

D has a Judge's Badge* and she*** is definitely making use of it while watching the rhythmic gymnastics tonight.

* From the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW**
** To judge the knitting comp at the Easter Show
*** tWM is also using it

Someone next door is learning Pachelbel's Canon on piano, and I'm sorry, It's delightful that you are acquiring a skill, but squeezy rubber chicken or GTFO

Love to able to tell manager didn't read my self-reflection as we start my review. Love to write my own review during the review. Love to see Other Colleague's name in the copy pasta.

I'm old and ugly, so I'll shrug it off. Going to have to check in with the younger peeps.

"I can assure you Mr Speaker, that were I not being financially incentivised that there is no way at all, no way, Mr Speaker, that I would have done any of the useless, bullshit jobs I have performed over the entirety of my career. Mr Speaker, not a one of them."

I saw a video this morning described as an Alaskan school going nuts as one student win gold in Tokyo. All they were doing was hopping and cheering. I felt like saying “that’s not nuts. _This_ is nuts” and then I realised. Australia knifey-spooneyed the Olympics.

.I expect the LNP are watching the ALP turn itself into a minor Tory party and are planning their 2022 election slogan. Something like “Why settle for the lesser evil?”

Very much amused that the music played as the fencers walk out to compete is The Imperial March.

I tried not to watch the Olympics, because fuck the IOC.

But the gymnastics drew me in and what I have discerned is that Russia has shown up wearing a scraggly week-old moustache and fake glasses because technically they are banned.

What is it with Boomers and their susceptibility to conspiracies? I blame all the lead they breathed in from their petrol.

It’d be rad if Jamesons would take their ad off the air in Sydney. No, I’m not coming for a fucking drink!

What she really desires is a conversation about the extent to which you should not die in order to provide her a quantum of additional comfort. We all eventually have no money either; so can we take considerably more of her money immediately?

Is it better for the environment if billionaires burn up on re-entry or explode during lift off?

Well...Ford might not have, but a lot of cities started banning horses because they left behind so much pollution wherever they went, both horseshit and dead horses.

We should see if we can get Matt regulated using those statutes on horseshit.
