A religious experience

I've just spent a long-weekend in rural Queensland.

Bananas can be had for $1.49 a kilo. Must be God's country.

There are billboards by the side of the highway which say "You are 9 months older than you think - Protect Life." Must be God's country.

So did I ever mention that I love Canberra? Dear God I love Canberra.

hey, c'mon, we aren't all religious bigots. there's a few nutters with the money to pay for billboards, however.

that blogsearch.sg thing looks really good

you know what makes me sad - when you have a chum who is quietly spoken - one who does not speak a lot, but when they do says stuff worth listening to - ie in contrast to me who does not really filter thoughts before speaking and actively relies on other people to point out the stupidity and unfairness implicit in some of my unfair - perhaps even outrageous - allegations, assertions and generally ridiculous pronouncements - anyway what makes me sad is when i get to catch up with aforementioned thoughtful chum - and i just get all excited and dominate the conversation - as soon as a thought comes into my head, IT MUST BE SPOKEN - that is the rule

stupid rule

anyway that's what makes me sad

queensland always makes me think of that

You didn't happen to go to Toowoomba, did you?

omg. I was just about to ask if you went to Toowoomba as I was there last week (and weekend) and have seen those signs in a few places, generally as you head up the range.

So, are you saying that I've been eighteen for six months already?

Why was I not informed of this?

Beat me to it lala, I was just thinking of them when I read the comment about the bilboard and the whole nine months thing! Crazy Queenslanders.

Wow - so you're telling me more than 3 people on this planet have actually visited Toowoomba?

You learns somthin' new everyday.

Feel for me, i LIVED in Toowoomba, and my family is still there. I now live in Brisbane (in sin with my girlfriend), and it's an exciting adventure to see that a new anti-choice sign is up every time we drive there to visit.

LaLa said...

Ha. I LIVED in Toowoomba. I still have family and friends there so visit a couple of times a year.

Those signs make me IRATE.
