I knew it was only a matter of time before a story like this came along. The reaction is classic Aussie. No judgements here, but sometimes I do think the culture lives somewhere over the rainbow.

No Words, Long Time

It has been a long time since I have actually taken the time to sit down and commit some words to paper, err, pixels. I've been trying to get into the "work" groove, and I'm finding it has cut into my special time! I miss American news media, I never thought I would say that. With all due respect to my Aussie friends, I find Australian news media to be boring as hell--not a lot of substance unless it relates to sports. I know the intimate details about team members in the AFL, but I have absolutely no idea what is going on in the world. I mentioned this in conversation the other day to another expat, who is from Ireland. She agreed, but was quick to add that American news media is so dramatic about everything. Funny, I never really thought about it that way before, perhaps I'm simply missing the drama.
