Well, I’m feeling quite relaxed and comfortable (if rather tired). I’m headed off to Sydney in the morning, and I’ve just finished writing a few pieces in advance for Crikey, PollieGraph and Unleashed, so as far as I’m concerned, having voted last week, my election’s over bar the counting! I won’t be around the intertubes very much for a few days, so will catch everyone in the Rudd era (touch wood)! But I thought we might need a respite from campaign chat, so here’s a bit of an open thread. As a discussion starter, I was inspired by a couple of friends on Facebook to start documenting my local neck of the woods photographically, and I’ve posted the first fruits of that project at deviantart (once you click through to the pics, you’ll get the bad pun). When I’m very busy, as I’ve been today (I’ve also been tidying up the submission of final semester results), I really get a lot of pleasure out of simple things like going for a stroll down to the shops on a beautiful day. So what little things make your day? Do tell – though I’m off to pack now!
Ps: Hope to see lots of LP folks at the two Sydney events I’m attending. And I hope everyone else has a great few days and enjoys the election!
