ARGH! I have SO MUCH TO DO, and at the same time, the Australian Conservative Coalition is spontaneously combusting over climate change. BUT I HAVE NO TIME TO MAKE FUN OF IT!!!

I suppose there's no point hoping that Ian MacFarlane could possibly come out of it as Liberal Leader? I have a weird little crush on him.

Meanwhile, I need tickets to Paris, a few nights of hotel rooms, to buy travel insurance and find somewhere selling FABULOUS winter coats in London or Oxford, making sure that said coats still look fabulous on the short and busty. If I manage one a day, all will be well!

BTW, anyone who will be covering Copenhagen -- Australia's main reps are a giant rock star (Peter Garrett, ex-Midnight Oil) and an Asian lesbian: if you can secure an interview, they both give brilliant copy when they're feeling a bit relaxed.

I have not laughed so hard since first watching Futurama.
Nick Michen is Bender and Malcolm is the Professor.
The ABC are in heaven, as am I.
And I can't wait for today's ep. Will Joe ride triumphant into the sunset with an ETS policy up his ass and will Malcolm pull Tony's ears off?

C'mon Bammers, just one little 'like sand down the underpants' post....

Something else to get your political wheels whirring. I saw this on lijahlover's journal.

The Ugandan government is trying to pass a law that would allow for the execution of homosexuals, the imprisonment of parents who don't turn in their gay children to the government, and the imprisonment of anyone who speaks out for gay rights.
But the really obscene part? A US evangelical organization called The Family is sending the Ugandan government money....and they have about ten members in the US Congress.


Don't people ever learn?!

It's HILARIOUS. I loved the comparison which was on...I can't remember what, something I watched over the weekend, with Malcolm as the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. "It's only a flesh wound!"

I wish I had more time today to follow it, I shall have to catch up tonight. KRudd must be dancing around in glee.

I am jealous of your travel, by the way. I'm planning a trip for January 2011 and it's not soon enough! :)
