Thank goodness for the federal election campaign – always something new to keep me entertained in the lead up to labour day (if I get that far, the recalcitrant one is still refusing to perform to other peoples expectations).
Thanks to The Other Andrew for this link to an article about the member of a prospective member for Reid (our new electorate).
Which reminds me – I must update my resume to add EX UNION BOSS to my list of job experiences. I was the shop delegate for the Shop, Distributive and Allied Employees Union (the SDA) when I was 17 and in high school. But Ex Union Boss sounds so much more impressive.
In Inigo news, we’re scheduled for another ultrasound tomorrow week, and then for a “chat” with the hospital obstetrician afterwards. If the passenger still hasn’t “assumed the position”, I get to find out what my options are. Apparently he is currently a “footling transverse oblique” lie. I am still relatively comfortable, and am taking advantage by throwing a dinner party tonight for the parents and parents in law. It’s quite likely to be my last dinner party for quite some time, so I am planning a 3-4 course extravaganza. And tomorrow, the built in wardrobe should be installed!
All in all, preparations for the big arrival are on schedule – and once the wardrobe is done, all I have to do is pack a hospital bag. Perhaps I should do that sooner rather than later – if I go into labour now, I have to race to the nearest hospital (because of Inigo’s position). So having my bag packed is probably a good idea!
Stay tuned for the continued adventures of Daisy, the long suffering feline…
One thought on “A Wonderful Start to the Election Campaign”
Sorry for the late reply, been a bit busy of late…
Re: Andrew Quah. I remember the name from the usyd union elections in 2006. He put himself forward as a liberal who is part of the communist party – or was it a communist who is a part of the liberal party. Either way, his political stance was very muddled.
When the election results came through I received an email saying who got in and who didn’t, complete with party affiliations.
His entry was “Andrew Quah (Crazy)”. Fortunately, it was in the “Not Elected” list.
