Wow, what a difference a day makes! Yesterday i had no inkling of the spill that engulfed the ALP, woke up this morning and hey presto! We've got Julia Gillard as PM!! I've just been watching her first press conference as PM and i have to say, i'm so impressed. I really, really hope that the spill doesn't hurt the ALP too much at the upcoming election, i reckon that if anyone could right the ship, she could. So yeah! Go Julia Gillard, and go the Greens!

ps. I still can't beleive that ANYONE sees The mad monk as a viable alternitive PM, but apparently the Libs are a threat. :(( Seriously, wtf Australia? You really would elect a sick joke like that? Sometimes i really think the entire country has short-term memory loss.


In less momentous news, i passed my Ba gua grading last weekend. Scraped in with my form (Old 8 palms) - just. I just got nervous, and then made one stuff-up and continued to make small errors all through the middle section. :( I did recover to bring it home though. I needed a minimum score of 7.6, and i scored 7.7 - phew! And i did stomp all my martial applications from the form and self-defence tecniques, so that was pleasing. The presentation was pretty lol - my teacher presented me with my sash, and then gave me my level badges seperately, saying that i should "congratulate myself as i sew them on"! XD

I would also give you a cute photo of some grass parrots, but flickr is changing a bunch of stuff atm and the linking thingie doesn't seem to work yet, so you are spared. FOR NOW. ;)
