In with the cool kids

Straylya is now officially one of the cool kids. We now have a girl Prime Minister.

Went to bed last night with K-Rudd stating rather tensely that he was PM and PM he was bloody well going to stay, and woke up to the sound of Our Julia being declared winner of the overnight power struggle.

Um, okay. Yeah. Righto. Sorry to see you go, Kev. Ta very much for the Sorry and getting us out of the GFC recession so quick. Better luck next time. Hello Julia.

Gillard becomes Australia's first female prime minister as tearful Rudd stands aside

Rudders...not proud of blubbing (poor love, more video)

How world reports Gillard's ascension

Poo Tubes re-visited

As Stevo pointed out, I forgot to mention the dunny cart man when I blogged the Poo Tubes.

Read all about him:
Talking Heads
Dunny cart lanes
Pommy Town
Ettalong - vastly different in the 40s and 50s

(By the way, Stevo, the new blog format is looking good.)

Great Woy Woy Tea Cosy Showcase

No photos sorry, Erica. But a couple of mates send this report: popped round from pub, had a scone with jam and cream (yum), looked at the tea cosies (very nice and, um, warm), enjoyed the winter sun, returned to pub.

Where the bloody hell am I?

Still crook. Absolutely buggered. Utterly lacking in motivation to do more than totter round the block a few times and collapse back on the sofa.

Seeing a lot more of the telly than I usually do. Very much enjoying Dirty Jobs, Breaking the Magician's Code and that one with Stephen Fry where he stands on a sandbar at the beginning. And Good News Week and Dr Who of course. Long time Dr Who addict. And when the fuck are they gonna put Supernatural back on? I need my Padalecki and Ackles fix.

Anyways, I'll be back when I'm back. I'll pop round my blogroll before then but. Takes less energy.

Ta very much for all the nice get well comments.
