There is a very loud* Lion Dance happening outside.

* The only kind.
Oh I know these lions! There are three of them today.

Shitty photo, sorry, but I didn’t see them until they had gone past.
They are really milking the customers at that row of little restaurants there lol.
I mean I could go down to get better photos but that would involve putting pants on. Also they’ll be back tomorrow.

Another one for the testimonials page.

“A crashing bumptious bore.” —Mike Carlton
Lovely stuff.
I think it’s important to follow through on ones plans. It’s a quality to be respected.

Anyway, here’s a link to the problematic thread. A very amusing outcome.

This must now be a moment to the Mountains this weekend and I will be in the Blue Mountains today and I’ll try to get some sleep lol.
That’s not all that good really.
See THIS is a slogan I could support!

Are there any sentences more Australian than “Too easy” and “Sweet as”?
Lol this is ridiculous. I asked to see well-known Australian phrases, someone replied with some, and Twitter called it “hateful content”.

To be clear, Twitter, this was a reply to my tweet requesting linguistic examples, and these are relevant examples. I am not offended. 1/2 Image
This doesn’t even relate to the rule. No one is being threatened or harassed, certainly not on any of the bases listed. It does not promote violence. See the use-mention distinction.…

I’m who this comment was directed to. Please lift this ban. 2/2

An hour and a half to go now.

It’s also two hours until The 9pm Autumn Series 2021 fundraiser closes.

People are quite rightly upset that the word “rape” is in quote marks in this headline, but unfortunately this is one of those occasions when journalistic convention clashes with public expectations. If I may expand on that... Image
First let me say this is definitely NOT me saying “journalists right, audience wrong”. I just want to provide the background.

Nor is it a defence of “Murdoch media”. I haven’t seen what other mastheads have done, and that this happens to be the Oz is irrelevant to my point.
At its core, this story is about a complaint of a crime. This claim has not yet been proven in court, so despite us really needing to believe the allegations of victims of sexual assault, it must be treated as an allegation and not a fact. Not yet.
