so tired, tired of waiting

"tired of waiting for yoooooouuuuuu..."

Midweek-ish, plenty of work so too busy to spend much time here, I'll tell you what I'm sick and tired of:
  • opinion polls of politicians' "approval ratings": it's only been 6 months since the bloody election for crying out loud, if Rudd's "approval rating" goes down x% and Nelson's comes up y%, what actual impact could this possibly have?
  • similarly, "MSM analysis" - it's not analysis by any definition, it's a primary school-level book review stuff of at best superficial ephemera;
  • the continuing infiltration of US slang: today I saw a genuine - well as much as any could be - story with the word "takeout" in the title. Puke.
What I'm feeling much more warm about:
  • country shows with lots of bull, literally;
  • real people;
  • including farmers in RM Williams and all the gear, including very large hat, talking about phenotypes - Australian agriculture has come a long way in the last couple of decades;
  • buying a new Chateau VVB.
Au revoir, mes amis.

I'm sick and tired of my hometown being full of very shiny utes with enormous RMW stickers completely blocking the driver's rear vision (not that they use their mirrors anyway).

The worst part is that 9 out of 10 owners of such monstrosities have probably never seen live cattle (or sheep) in their lives, except perhaps at the Canberra Show, or grazing in one of the ACT Government-run paddocks dotted around Canberra in an attempt to mitigate our fire risk.

The other day I spotted one of these utes with a big "No more flamin' National Parks!" sticker. I'm sure it had nothing whatsoever to do with fires. Disgusting and shameful.
