Someone forgot to bring the monster cards so I took the opportunity to draw us some new murder-rats

A personal opinion

Australia Day

Australia Day will inevitably change to another date. Conservatives don't seem to realise that they have already lost this battle of the culture war.

My friends used to hold Australia Day parties every year, but in recent years they have stopped. The growing understanding we have about how painful 26 January is for Indigenous Australians takes the fun out of partying on that date. 26 January has stopped being Australia Day for many Australians, and if it's not a day for all Australians then is it really Australia Day any more? No, it is not.

Conservatives can have as many parties as they like on 26 January, but when so many of us don't join in then that day is not Australia Day. No words or laws can make it so when Australians don't have their hearts in it.

Good morning... ducks? fowl? some other water bird?

It’s lovely and sunny outside today, but what am I doing? Mucking around on the computer working out how to post photos from my personal website to Instagram.

Bluebonnet Barbecue
The square format of Instagram photos gave me the difficult choice of: do I focus on Amy? Or do I focus on this amazing plum cocktail? My choice was made when the neighboring table ordered exactly the same... the pretty pink plum cocktail for the guy, a beer for the girl. So this photo is doing double duty, you could see the same if you turn your head a little to the right.
