    I'm an extremely proud and elated Magpie right now :D

    Eddie bleeds black and white. He might be annoying, but what we achieved today is the result of his passion.

    Some one stole the Lord sticker off my car. At least they didn't break into it like they usually do.

    I was unfortunate enough to be at a gig in Collingwood last night. It. Was. Horrible.

    Needless to say, I caught a cab home afterwards. Despite the price, there was no way in hell I was getting on a nightrider with them.

    I agree. It is utterly shit. And worse with kids who simply won't sleep at the new bedtime hour.

    Queenslanders have long been against daylight savings complaining their curtains will fade quicker and the cows will get all confused.

    See, that's why i wonder if these articles are plants. There are no doubt some people who do believe that there's an actual extra hour of sunlight, but there are also a large number of very good reasons why some states don't want Daylight Savings.

    Any state that stretches into the Tropics doesn't want it because there is a lot less difference between Winter and Summer hours. Plus, the heat. Any state that is largely rural doesn't want daylight savings, because farms work by the sun, not by shopping hours.

    People opposed to daylight savings are cowed into silence by stories about faded curtains, because nobody wants to look like a fool. Of course that doesn't work on country folk, who are already considered fools anyway and really don't care what city people say.

    I hate daylight savings because it always signals the coming if the hotter months

    I lived there last summer. The Broad daylightness at 5 in the morning tripped me out every time.

    I was over in Perth earlier this year for a few days.... the fact that I looked out the office window at 9pm and it was still bright sunshine did my head in. Mainly because it had rained the previous week in Sydney

    I'm finding that my customers seem to be falling into two categories lately...

    - Innocently stupid (having to explain things several times because they don't understand and keep fucking up)
    - Vindictively arrogant (having to justify my actions a dozen times because people are too busy trying to appear important to their superiors without actually doing any real work)

    I can't decide which is more annoying

    Now that we've killed daylight savings you won't see that anymore.

    Actually, if daylight savings came in, you wouldn't see it anymore. Because it wouldn't be daylight at 5, it would be light at 6. Like it's supposed to be, which is why we have daylight savings, so the daylight hours can be used instead of slept through.

    I like sleeping in. It stops the curtains from fading so fast.

    Daylight savings is awesome. You can actually do stuff after work. It confuses the birds though.
