It’s most unusual for me to be up early in the morning, and I’m far from being an insomniac, but I gave up on the struggle for sleep at 5am today. Perhaps it’s the excitement of going into town to cast a pre-poll vote… I’ll be in Sydney on election weekend (and there’s an actually exciting election night party LP is hosting along with 2SER and New Matilda that everyone’s invited to) so I get to do the deed early. I was thinking last night the first time I voted in a federal election was in 1987. Interestingly, that was the last one John Howard lost. Anyway, I doubt it’s the excitement of heading out to uni to pick up essays to mark, particularly since semester having ended, Griffith Uni no longer pay me. It’s probably that I’m still crook.
So, at a loss for anything to do, I went for a very pleasant stroll along the river. And I took my camera. When the sun was out, at least, it was a really beautiful morning!

Update: Oopsy! Obviously this standard wordpress blog doesn’t support embedded flash like LP proper! Incidentally, we’re almost done with the big server move so we’ll be going home soon. If you’d like to see the photos, please click on the image name hyperlinks to get into the gallery.
