And now to Saturday March the 29th, at 8pm…the beginning of Earth Hour.I for one am absolutely thrilled by the ability of activists to be thrilled about the outcome of an event, over a day before the event has actually eventuated! It certainly bespeaks great thrift and economy on their part, to offer their thoughts and emotions on unhappened happenings as if they had already happened: by the time these happenings have actually happened, they'll have moved on to something else entirely!
No, on second thoughts, let's go back a day further - to Friday, March the 28th, at 6.09 pm - when this article popped up on Fairfax Media's online paper, the Brisbane Times.Lights Go Out Over Bris Vegas For Earth HourYou've been caught out, Kellie - being thrilled 26 hours in advance.
Brisbane made history this evening with the city’s first official Earth Hour going off without a hitch.
Kellie Caught, of Earth Hour organiser World Wildlife Fund (WWF), said she was thrilled with the response.
However, I can't help but feel that, 26 hours before this hasty Earth Hour story was published, they must have been feeling anxious and humiliated at the outcome of their forthcoming publishing mistake. And who knows what they must have been feeling, 26 hours before the exposure of their humiliating mistake on Media Watch? That must have been an absolutely horrible thing to have not occurred yet - really terrible!
