The Jetstar sign at Darwin Airport is covered in dust… looks like no one has cleaned it in months!

11:30pm and Darwin airport is so full that people are sleeping on the floor. At midday it would be standing room only. Darwin Airport feels like it's about the size of the Derek Zoolander Centre for Ants.

Mindil Beach Sunset Market
Lamb satays with rice cakes from Sari Rasa at the Mindil Beach Markets... most excellent!

The Brunswick Mess Hall
Late night dumplings... red bean, black sesame, mirin, peanuts and some oh yeah!

What a weird, weird article. What purpose does it serve Terry McCrann to hyperventilate about the NBN ‘disaster’? The Coalition has won the election and will implement its policies. Continuing to peddle the myth that the NBN is a disaster can't influence the election now, but it could backfire on McCrann etc if the Coalition's FttN turns out to be the disaster. I'm a big supporter of Labor's FttH but base my opinion on the technology details and I acknowledge that the Coalition's FttN model is reasonable — inferior but not terrible. But we won't know for years how it all turns out, so this kind of overblown reporting is just plain weird.

The Alehouse Project
Overwhelming roar of excitement at the Greens afterparty for the seat Wills once we heard Adam Bandt is back in Melbourne with a big swing to him. Well done! Lots of happy Wills campaigners drinking in celebration instead of sorrow.

Strathmore North Primary School
Good to see people in stilettos can't vote. They should ban people in leggings too!

Southern Star Observation Wheel
It's not just the big things they screwed up at Docklands, it's the little things too.
