Today is Erin's birthday. So Happy Birthday Erin!
in the highly unlikely case that she'll come across this post.
I had a nightmare this morning. It was disturbing. I can't remember it except there was something about the devil's handprint. And lots of blood.
After taking Rianna to Saturday school, I went grocery shopping for mum. I bought potatoes. The phrase "Happiness is not a potato" ran through my mind while I was buying the potatoes and made me smile.
Another thing made me smile today: this article
. After a lifetime of being politically disillusioned, it's SO good to be able to read newspaper articles about this government and this country that don't make me feel angry or depressed. There's hope in the air. It's a good feeling. :-)
Also, this bit: "There are many other great stories in Labor's new team of leading women: 37-year-old Tanya Plibersek, the Minister for Housing and the Status of Women, 40-year-old Nicola Roxon, the Minister for Health and Ageing, and 39-year-old Senator Penny Wong, the Minister for Climate Change and Water — the first Asian-born female MP
and openly gay
(!!!) — are just a few." Could you imagine an openly gay Asian MP in the old Howard government?? Ha.
In conclusion: YAY.
Oh. Mum just came in. Apparently I am crappy grocery shopper. I did not buy the right kind of cookies (even though she didn't specify NOT to get these ones), and she's gonna have to go return them (return cookies? Like wtf). And she made some quip about the potatoes too. *sigh*
