    I am intrigued that so many people in the media keep calling the coming games “THE Grand Final”. I thought that when Sydney University beat Eastwood THAT was the Grand Final.

    Now all we’ve got to do is wait for the dates to sprout. Dates do sprout, don’t they?

    Thanks, Mindy.
    I haven’t read the books – I gather some are much better than others – or seen season 3 yet. Waiting till February to buy it.

    A local signwriting firm calls itself

    Legible Signs

    Paul, I’ve finished Top of the Lake now. Alternately ravished by the almost unbelievable scenery and gut-punched by the plot. An emotional rollercoaster and a feast for the eyes. Not for the fainthearted that’s for sure. But what a beautiful looking series.

    Doubly amusing, Paul. I note I get a mention in the comments …

    Helen,
    Still too fraught to pluck up the courage to watch the last 2 episodes.

    DR (nr),
    He always comes up. You can’t write about Churchill and base your interpretation of Churchill on Hitlerian rants and expect people to take you seriously.

    I’ve departed somewhat from the Whimsy thread, so here is a particularly Melbourne music vid. Full of whimsy and full of win – two wonderful women, well past the chickybabe demographic, show them how to rock out at home.

    “…1996. Bethel needed to pay his internet bill, so he was writing a cheque in his car.” A cheque! To pay his internet bill! Now there’s whimsy for you!

    Ah! So that’s why they turned up. I was wondering.
