I was caught quite twice today by the radio. One matter I cared little for, that all female competitors in Beijing's Olympic Games will compete at the end of the games, not throughout the games. I just thought, there will be protests and left it at that. Delete. (misogynistic pig that I am)
The other, a supposed leak from the Eddington Report, to make the centre lanes of St Kilda Road into a bike and tram lane only and ban cars, limiting them to only to the service road. As the morning went on, I was thinking of the impact of this. There were some pretty outraged motorists making their points. An alert person called the story into question, game over. I would really like to see St Kilda Road reinvented, but someone will lose. As I walk it, drive it, and tram and bus it, I don't want to lose anything. It would have to have a very good bike lane before I would bike it. I did a bike count recently. Average of twelve bicycles per set of lights at the corner of Toorak and St Kilda Roads. Impressive. They deserve better.
How about you? Did you caught by anything? Did you pick up on mine? You are quite entitled to use some very nasty adjectives about me. It seems only one person did. Perhaps the ones that said nothing did too.
I like the one I wrote last year better. I did not let on for a few days. Daniel got me big time in 2004. Three years later, I got him. Revenge is a dish best served cold. No one took that much notice anyway last year. I thought the incest bit would give it away, not that there is anything wrong with incest. (please lord, let no one misinterpret this. Surely everyone knows it is an attempt at mild humour)
Last year's was much less personal. This year's was just too cruel, but thank you for your tea and sympathy (of course St Kilda has broadband, you think I am stupid? ADSL, Telstra cable, Optus cable, although Optus won't do flat cable, unless that has changed) (and duh, haven't you been reading? I know Balaclava and St Kilda like the back of my hand and could write a thesis on them) . Well done this year Walker, and Ben's comment just came through. For you in the US, it was a bit unfair on you because of the date thing. Sorry Daisy Jo. Can I make it up with a big pash from afar. Now everyone, no going in and deleting your comments. I will want to remember your niceness. Besides, I have the comments emailed to me.
And just to make sure, let me assure you, I would go without the cost of internet to live here and perhaps food too.
