  1. Just watched ep 2 (i missed the first) of dumb drunk and racist on iview and cried the whole way though… I would love to hear what others think of the show.

  2. I’ve seen an episode of that show too, Alien Tea – it’s quite shocking, isn’t it?
    I’ve also just put up the 50th (?) Edition of the Down Under Feminists’ Carnival at my blog, be sure to go check out what wonderful things Australian and NZ bloggers have written his month!

  3. Wow, 50 editions of the DUFC? That’s amazing. Thanks for the work you put in, Jo.
    I haven’t seen the show, Alien Tea. Sounds very disturbing though.

  4. Thanks Jo – that’s tomorrow’s reading sorted, well done putting it all together.
    Alien Tea, I’ve had to watch the episodes through twice, and I’m still unsure what I think about it. Which I suppose is a review of sorts!
    Grumpy today about unionists helping to get Abbott elected, by playing out petty internal ALP fights via the Telegraph.

    Ugh. Bad behaviour by pop star, then stupid non-apology, followed by girls saying “we love you”.

    The comments! Distinct vein of “women are prudes”, even though the article lays out clear reasons other than prudishness for wanting not to be filmed.

  7. Can someone put me to bed with a hot water bottle and then remind me to take my antibiotics tonight and make me take them even though in some ways, but different ways, they are just as bad as the infection they are supposed to fight?
    Thanks. I’ll be over here whimpering and wishing that I had taken myself off to the Dr before it got to this point. Really sucks when you only have yourself to blame.

  8. I’m not infectious and I think lemon might make things uncomfortable – think cranberry juice. Although the antibiotics are making me feel less sick tonight and I have a snoring 6yr old keeping me warm in bed. Hugs gratefully accepted.

  9. Just got back from Queer Collaborations, a conference about queer student issues. It was in Adelaide. They have loud nasty street preachers in Adelaide. 150 of us staged an impromptu dance party protest next to them to drown out their hate speech. There was lots of kissing, and one guy proposed to his boyfriend. It was brill.
