Weekly Whimsy

This week’s whimsy comes via Shakesville: Tweet of the Day – an epic typo for Benedict Cumberbatch. Please share any bits and pieces you have come across recently that have surprised, delighted, intrigued or otherwise positively engaged you.

Media circus vs policy

Another week, another slew of personality-conflict and MP-scandal headlines. Who’d think it was Budget week in Canberra, eh? Discuss actual policy here, if you like. Or just heave brickbats at the worst of the circus acts, if you prefer.

Otterday! And Open Thread.

Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires. Is there anything great happening in your life? Anything you want to get off your chest? Reading a good book (or a bad one)? Anything in the news that you’d like to discuss? What have you created lately? Commiserations, felicitations, temptations, contemplations, speculations?
