Hello World!

Over the past two nights I've been having trouble getting to sleep (essays...stress...fate of the universe depends on outcome of Latin exam), and so I've been doing some late-night channel surfing.

This usually results in watching lots of ads advertising adult shops or introduction services ("Because you've gotta have friends!") in between trashy shows such as Sheena, but I've actually found myself watching question time in the Senate.

At first I thought it would help put me to sleep, but it's actually become addictive watching the politicians spar with each other. The government backbenchers all ask questions like "Can the minister tell us about his/her wonderful plan to save the planet?" while the opposition ask "Does the minister recall his/her promise on the 12th of January last year to investigate [insert really irrelevant matter here], and what is he/she going to do about it?" At which point the minister looks completely clueless and says they'll investigate, and then throws in a long diatribe about how much they thought the opposition sucked while they were in government.

It's also fun to watch what the people behind the speakers as they try to muster some sort of interest in what they are saying in a vain attempt not to seem completely bored. Ah, democracy;)
