I wake up each morning and say "I'm alive!" :D

I have multiple medical conditions, on top of my ADHD, so, yes this is something i definitely think about. :D

And yes, Kettlekorn is right, the world is definitely improving.

To be glad that I don't suffer from the curse that is NBN, and that the Australian Government isn't still lead by Tony freaking Abbot. Seriously, his crimes include being a budgie-smuggler wearing middle-aged man, taking a bite out of a raw onion like it was a apple, calling the current prime minister 'Mister internet' and then continuing to call him that as the government under his leadership (good 'ol Malcom Turnbull!!!) completely fraks up the national telecommunications redo, calling himself the 'suppository of all knowledge', being a utter twat and also being about as responsible as the Roman Ceaser Nero.

But anyway, I'm glad that I don't use NBN, that Mr Abbot isn't prime minister anymore, that I've got a decent apartment in a decent area of Sydney, and in a high-security tenancy too, that I can eat three meals a day (just...not going any further in that depressing direction), that I'm getting my masters degree, that I have recently gotten a paid job with the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (which is cool, but I'm waiting for them to rebuild it in a different place), and that I've finally managed to get my drivers license.

And they say American is a different language from English!

I'm Sorry, Minh that was pretty much indecipherable. NBN? Budgie? Is that the parakeet, the TV Series or the drummer from Siouxsie and the Banshees? And why would he smuggle one? And why would that be bad? Biting raw onion? Obviously you've never had the privildge of eating a Vidalia Onion which are actually SWEET.

Mister Internet? I'm sorry, even my granny, God rest her soul, could come up with better invective than that. Are you sure you didn't mean the repository of all knowledge? Or...was he courting the LBGT vote?

:evil:

Budgie Smuglers = Speedos

NBN = National Broadband Network

Yes, Abbot did declare himself (on live national TV no less) to be the 'suppository of all knowledge'. This is before the Gay Marriage Plebiscite here BTW.

Mister Internet is what Abbot called Malcom Turnbull, the current prime minister. Turnbull owns a telecom and a large business at that. He's also the head of the Australian Coalition or the Liberals (right wing, as opposed to Labour (left wing)) and decent compared to Abbot (the maddest bastard ever to be in charge of Australia)

The onion had just been dug up out of a garden and unwashed. He just took a bite out of it, dirt and all.

That's the best way to eat any vegetable. I certainly ate enough of them like that as a kid. And ya... Vidalia (yellow sweet onion) are something you can bite into not much different from an apple as far as texture goes. Also green onions / scallions (a very mild taste) and spring onions are quite often pulled eaten like that... just like a radish or carrot, pulled from the ground, clip off the leafy surface stuff and eat the root (although you can and do use the greens in some recipes, especially in Asian cooking). Sure, you can clean them up and cut them up for fancy serving plates or to use in something else... but there is nothing wrong from eating them straight from the ground. The little dirt still on them is actually better for your health than a lot of processed things we eat as food intentionally.

HO-LY SHIT

I thought I was having a good day today. Nice weather, got to listen to live jazz while reading a new book, easy traffic, no line at Walmart, got home and read the latest chapter of Ward... But then I discovered this incredible album. Maybe I ate too many handfuls of Caramel Cashew trail mix, I don't know, but I feel fucking goddamned amazing right now. I don't think I've eargasmed this hard since I discovered Caro Emerald! Maybe not even then.

I am the kernel that pops in the night. I am the pain that keeps your dentist employed.
