I haven't been here for ages...
Posted Nov 19, 2012
and I don't know if I can get back into the habit of checking my messages every day. So sorry in advance if you reply and I ignore you. It's also almost embarrassing looking back at what I did four or more years ago. I've been hanging out on Reddit, which has great content but not a great community - it's so big that there's probably a redditor on my street, but there's nothing like the community there is here. So just popping my head in through the door to say hi.
Only in Australia

Lest We Forget

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
Woohoo, I'm famous!

Waikato Times, 7 July, p. B4:
BBC-backed "encyclopaedia" website H2G2 has the following unflattering descriptions of Hamilton: "Hamilton can be a dangerous town or a quiet one, depending on the places you frequent. Boy racers are a constant problem and there are areas where it would not be wise to leave your pit-bull unattended. The drug culture is rife. 'Party pills' are popular. They claim to contain only herbal ingredients and are legal, but they are definitely not Vitamin C and it would be wise to stay away from them as you would any other drug."

I rarely write journal entries, but I thought this was worth it.
(Snopes was the only place I could find it)
