    IOL: Man jailed as parental lesson backfires
    IOL: Man jailed as parental lesson backfires: "Kevin Winston, 46, called police early on Friday after his 16-year-old daughter came home drunk and unruly.

    When police arrived, however, the girl told them she feared for her safety because her father stored drugs and weapons in the home in Newark, New Jersey, USA"

    Alasdair got stung by road rage
    Alasdair just called me to tell me what happenned to him on the way to his mum's this evening.

    Alasdair did a zip merge and pissed off someone who obviously didn't note the rules about zip merges changing a while back. This guy speeds off ahead and pulls over in a side street. At the next intersection, ths guy comes bolting out of the side street and laying into Alasdair with a hammer, smashing the drivers side window and nearly breaking Alasdair's arm. With a hammer. What a psycho!

    Then, to top it off.. no-one helped him. No-one asked if he needed a hand (or an ambulance). No-one wrote down the number plate or offered to be a witness. This is in peak hour traffic on Marion road. This guy has beaten up a stranger with a hammer on a main road in peak hour traffic and he has got away with it.

    How fucked up is this world?

    ps. Oh yeah. Don't forget he is driving my car.. so I now own two cars with smashed windows. :(

    Crow Eaters
    I was informed that South Australians were known as "Crow eaters" the other day and I had to wonder why.

    "As for South Australians: there are two options - they were either called 'crow eaters' or else 'magpies'. Of those two I suspect that 'crow eaters' was more common in colonial times - especially north of the Goyder line where farmers tried to grow wheat in an excessively arid climate, failed, and suffered from a scanty diet as a result. Hence, 'crow eaters'. That is pretty much the complete and matching set."

    I *had* to wonder, hey?

    CBC News: Keen taste buds linked to svelte figures: "TRENTON, N.J. - People with an unusually keen sense of taste tend to be thinner than other people, a new study suggests. "

    Yes - because they are more inclined to go hungry just because they don't like hte food.

    Stressed and fidgety
    I'm sitting in FUCS rehearsal and I can't pay attention at all - my brain is
    all scattered. I have far too much stuff that I need and want to do that
    doesn't involve me being here.
    Okay, now we are philosophising about the lyrics to 'Scarborough Fair'... As
    you do.
    Hmm... Well I guess an update on my life is in order.
    Damien has given up on celibacy, so I'm glad I live across the hall now.
    Alice & Ian broke up almost as soon as she got off the plane, which sucks
    completely for her.
    Sarah & Jason got married on Saturday and I have photos to blog later.
    Folk Fed want me to do some paid event management & volunteer
    co-ordination... I'm stoked about that!
    IV is coming along nicely - still a million miles to go though. :)
    I just declined to be on FUCS committee for anything useful (I am co-morals
    officer!). Yay! That will free up useful time.
    The Thursday night choir is same old same old - which is great.
    I'm putting together a trio of fembots - myself, Jo and Mel - to sing random
    folk and pop tunes. I would like Fiona and/or Phoebe to join us if we need
    more people occasionally. This will be really cool.
    Basically my focuses at the moment are study, Folk Fed, IV, Thursday choir
    and Fembots. Oh. And working daily for money.
