Happy first-weekend-following-first-full-moon-following-vernal-equinox Celebration!

Do baby sea lions get Eostre Eggs? This little darling was born at Taronga Zoo in Sydney recently and has just this week been able to leave the pup creche and come out into the larger sea lion habitat.

  1. I can’t hear myself think anymore: our neighbours play their music — heavy base — so loudly. Yes, during the day.

  2. When I do that after being shaped it happens pretty much immediately. (Although they say it could take a while, never does.) So I guess, no reason.

  3. Right – I can’t stand it any longer. I have now upgraded my internet plan so that I can have my cable broadband speed back again instead of being restricted to dial-up speed.
    Is there any good reason at all why my ISP can’t just flick the “faster” switch now instead of sending it to a work queue where it won’t happen until midnight?

  4. Joy-Mari, I hear that. Across the street is a lovely band that practices during the early evenings. With a drum set. Very loudly.


  5. There’s a censorship crackdown in Fiji, with police and “information officers” assigned to every newsroom to help the media decide what is and isn’t newsworthy. Bloggers are filling the gap with so-far uncensored reportage. More from Andrew Bartlett.

  6. O HAI.
    I’ve been busy moving, so this is the first time I’ve been on the internet in a whole week. I still don’t have the broadband connected at home, but at least we’ve got enough done now that I can come into uni.

    A whole week! Here, have this link: F*$k You, Penguin (a site where animals that need a good talking-to are given a good talking-to)
