Delivered with some considerable delay, my first ever meme:
I have posted on this before. I can't even stand the word, let alone the purported persona that is attached to these people. Yes, life is shit somtimes. Yes, the facists have fucked us all. But for god's sake, pull yourself together and get a bloody job.
2. Public Spitters.
I know most probably dislike this, but I find it utterly repulsive
3. Stupid Questions.
I have wonderful, fantastic & beautiful friends from all walks of life. For this fact I'm incredibly grateful. However, the other night at dinner when I was discussing the work that I had done with indigneous people in Africa, someone asked me: "No, but tell me, seriously...were you tempted to buy the diamonds?".
Oh, well of course, I only do the social justice stuff in order to ease my conscience when the light catches my latest 5 carat purchase.
4. Out of control binge drinkers.
No. I don't want to see your tits.
Yes. Running in to that hedge that covers a wrought iron fence is going to hurt.
5. Inconsiderate Cyclists.
Saving the environment: good. Running down innocent bystanders at pedestrian crossings: bad.
6. Accent shifts.
I have the most disturbing accent ever at the moment. I really hate it. I'm watching neighbours repeats to try and flush out my weird Australian/Southern England/Mancunian mess.
7. Liberal Party Campaigners
I was driving the other day and there were these two young blokes decked out in full party costuming (hats, caps, flags) waving at motorists, trying to drum up support. Has my homeland morphed in to the United States while I've been gone?
Don't get me wrong, I like a good natter over a nice cup of tea. Tearing someone to shreds for something to do? Not cool.
My heart goes out to the family of Murrinyi Domadagee.
10. Career Public Servants.
Don't get me one my sister works for the Art Gallery which is a government run body, but god, the attitude of some of these people is incredible. Their notion of work? Even more astounding.
If anyone is still reading this...I tag Frog, Cowboy, Chloe, Julia & Danielle.
