May 31. On the way home I noticed that the Sunday Age had ‘Ginger leaves the Spice Girls’ as its banner.

May 19. Budget Day. Not much I can say. But I did like this quote from the Australian online:
[Some chick] said she would “rather give birth again” than have to look for another childcare centre in the current climate.
The Federal Government’s cuts to childcare facilities was “an unspoken policy of keeping women at home”, she said. “Why doesn’t the Government say ‘We have a policy of keeping women at home’? It reduces unemployment and it looks better for our figures.”
May 14. Things I hate today:
People who use Java for animations. That’s like using every pot and pan in the house to make a toasted cheese sandwich – it takes a lot longer, uses unecessary resources, and the end result is the same. Except, I guess, if you make a toasted cheese sandwich like that, it’s not likely to crash someone’s browser or computer.
