Going to be fiddling around with a Beta template tomorrow, trying to rejig this blog, update the blogroll, bla bla bla. In the meantime thought I'd put a couple of notices up here, a kind of post in lieu of an actual post. Yeah, yeah. It's the end of the working week, I'd like to see you come up with something better. (Though of course if you want to pop into the comments and have a chat about merkins or Mozart or similar, I'm more than happy to oblige.)
Despite my misgivings about the Aussie Blog Awards, I've just gone over and made a couple of nominations myself.
Best Victorian blog: Legless In Perpetuum
Best Post on an Australian Blog: A Little Note To My Body.
Best Australian New Blog: Lexicon Harlot.
Best Humourous Australian Blog: Jellyfish Online!
Best Australian Collaborative Blog: Sarsaparilla.Why not go over there and make a couple yourself?

"In fact if we look at the 10 hottest years for Australia, 15 of those have occurred since 1980, and only two of those hottest years have occurred before 1950," Mr Plummer said.
Depressing, isn't it? I'd shoot myself now, but statistics show that seven out of every four suicides these days result in fatal injury, death, or even more.
