|Get me the subby! Our local paper...|
But before that, I still have some writing to do. I've been thinking about the 'fact check' piece on the Brisbane Airport and so I'm up early drafting out the key points. At 6.12am I've been at the computer for about an hour...the notes are there now but I just need to put it all together. I think I should be able to do that after morning tea, the deadline is 4.00pm.
On the way to the bus stop, I pick up the local weekly newspaper off the front lawn, might as well take it with me. I actually quite like reading the local paper, it gets down to a level I wouldn't normally hear about and, since he became the local member in 1998, Kevin Rudd had featured regularly. I consider it useful for work purposes...well that's my excuse. I'm glad I did today though, I wasn't sure whether to laugh or cry at the juxtaposition of the headlines on the front page...oh my goodness.
It was wonderful to catch up with Cathy and Patty and as I've mentioned previously, it is one of the unexpected bonuses of joining up to the twitterverse. We are all rather well-behaved and quite disciplined considering the delicacies on offer. After an hour or so, I'm off home again and set about writing the article. I manage to get it done by 3.00pm, ahead of deadline.

I understand Kevin Rudd remains prime minister at this stage.
