They say you can never go back

I haven't been here for a long time, it looks the same but it's a different place.
Off to do a bit of exploring.
Yikes! Naaah, I think it should be called the Linda button!

Well it looks like the star of the same name in a certain type of *ahem* movie.
Oh yeah, & it sucks when people use it on you

I'm amazed - I *finally* managed to unsubscribe from the Lastminute.com mailing list.
I originally subscribed when h2g2 did their deal with them - but have been trying to unsubscribe ever since I realised all Lastminute.com offers were valid only for the UK!
Multiple attempts to unsubscribe were ignored by Lastminute.com & finally it worked!!!!
Where have all the journals gone?

Where have all my journals gone & can I post this without having logged in.
Olympic Opening Ceremony
Posted Sep 15, 2000
I've just finished watching the Opening Ceremony.
A potted review for anyone that's interested.
Generally a pretty good spectacle - though I have to wonder if non Aussies would get any of the "in jokes" - the lawnmower guys, the corrugated iron (& corrugated iron dunny), the cardboard box sheep (not even sure I got that one), the Nolanesque Ned Kellys etc. I wonder what US TV will make of bare breasted female Aboriginal dancers - rumour has it that the NBC Today crew had some concerns about the number of topless girls on Bondi beach when broadcasting "live"
On the athletes/teams parade - the best bit would have to be North & South Korea marching as a combined team. (Not a bad accomplishment Juan).
Best athletes costume - undoubtedly the Mongolian flag bearer, a heavyweight wrestler of some sort resplendant in traditional barbarian Mongol horde boots, fur hat & not so traditional (though I'm not sure) leather G-string thing of some sort.
A pretty good show altogether
