  • Indiana Jonesing,

    as cute as these buttons?

    Gah. Bad Nick. That was disturbing.

    No, as cute as these buttons.

  • Indiana Jonesing,

    His speechwriter is apparently some 26-year-old wunderkind called Jon Favreau. (No, not that one.) And a coupla other young whippersnappers.

    Thanks -- fascinating story. Trivia: he has a Jesuit education.

    Thanks, Danielle, I had been idly wondering who wrote those words and how much input the candidate had. And now I wonder how bad it is that I think Jon Favreau is cute as a little button.

  • Hard News: The Secret Code,

    I find Phil Goff's track record in Justice of readiness to toss my civil liberties aside quite worrying. He strikes me as a classic authoritarian.

    If it's any reassurance, he was once dragged off the stage at a Labour Party conference screaming 'socialism forever!'.

    Um, I hear.

  • Hard News: The Secret Code,

    you'd rather see a rabid jackal head up the Labour Party than Goff.

    Where can I sign up for the Rabid Jackal?

    It being morning, I initially read this as a rabid jackal head, which was up the Labour Party.

  • Southerly: My First Stabbing,

    I'm going to run the idea past my usual 'brains trust' of David Slack, Emma Hart, and Creon Upton and see what they think. But, having said all that, my concept is probably crap.

    Bet you a beer it isn't.

    'fess up Emma - is that your house?

    Geez, that would have been clever. Unfortunately, no it isn't. Once we get our son safely enrolled at the trendy-liberal special-character non-zoned high school, then maybe that can be our house.

  • Hard News: In tha Hoodie,

    Oops, that makes no sense:

    Nomnomnom.

    Ménage à Trois with Mr Darcy and Heathcliffe?

    No, still made perfect sense to me.

  • Hard News: In tha Hoodie,

    Of course, I never wear it outdoors, though come to think of it, it might go nicely with a black velvet jacket and a pair of patent leather boots.

    Pants, dude. Remember pants.

  • Hard News: In tha Hoodie,

    In principle, I would like to dress in the stylish and mature fashion of the dapper Mr Beard.

    In practise, this requires more labour, thought and expense than I am prepared to put into the enterprise of dressing, except on special occasions. My sartorial-foo manifests only in my extensive collection of novelty t-shirts.

    Some suggestions on male dress.

    Nomnomnom.

    On infill, I'm all infavour of it, done right. Five-Up seems a good plan but have a look at this. It's built so it got approval and someone 'designed' for someone else to 'live' in.

    I call it A BLOCK

    Holy crap. Is there time to buy a house while on a salvia trip? For less than $270 000 in Linwood you could have, say, this.

    The only reason I would make voluntary payments, if for some reason I found a couple of grand lying around, would be to clear it which would increase my take-home pay.

    This was the choice we made last year, to get rid of the loan for both the teeny-tiny tax cut, and just not having to worry about it any more, which has been great.
