I think I may've fallen in love with Malcolm Turnbull. For those that don't know, he's the only Australian politician with any power who isn't batshit insane at the moment. Sure he's married & old-ish, but I just need to breed him with David Tennant, and I will've created the best person ever! I am very much looking forward to the day I get to vote no to everybody, and a resounding YES! to the sensible person :)
Meanwhile, we've all been off saving a wetland. There's a little place south of where I live called Beelier, and its one of the last wetlands in Perth. People are trying to put a highway through it. They want to destroy a whole swamp, just for 5.5km of useless road. I dislike this immensly. My mother has been incredibly grassroots about it all, and we went and had a rally, then I peer pressured people, and now I'm all hippy!
Then I sort of realised how painful it is the day after you suddenly start exercising again. Oh gods, pakour is PAINFUL. I do think its awesomely fun as well, learning how to move as efficiently as possible through urban landscapes, but for someone who's done nothing more strenuous than walk to the bus stop for the past 2 years, its a bit intense.
In other news, I started a baby blanket, because I REALLY can't do that cable, and just don't have time to see my Nana. However, if worst comes to worst, he will be up north (in the hot bit) in Spring, so I doubt he'll really need the warmth.
I spent all of work today looking up yummy teas online. Zhena's Gypsy Tea is amazing. I've already got a few from work, but I really am in love. They're all so deliciously warm, and coupled with my heated blanket, an episode of Doctor Who and my knitting, I'm pretty much in heaven! It even better when there's my darling teddy called John (who will eventually model baby items) Being an unemployed uni student living at home is a little bit amazing. Just saying :)
