it was bank holiday today but we had to work - at least we get paid double time and a half - yippee! would have preferred a day off in lieu but that was not an option.
a 4 dog day. not much else exciting to report.
1. I always exercise my right to vote. (If you are under 18, 'I will always exercise my right to vote as soon as I am old enough to.') true, here in oz we have no choice. we get fined for not voting...
2. I pay little or no attention to the campaign ads aired on television prior to a presidential election. true, especially for american presidential elections i ignore the crap before aussie elections too.
3. I can see myself running for some type of political office someday. false, i'm too honest...
4. I believe we will see a woman become president in my lifetime. true, i certainly hope so!
5. I try to keep an open mind regarding all political issues. neither, i have no interest in politics. they are all liars and cheats who will promise anything to get elected and then break all of their election promises.
6. I believe the drinking age should be raised. true but it would not make a lot of difference. young people will still drink.
7. I think the legal age to vote should be raised. false
8. I thought these questions were interesting. true, but i have to answer from an australian viewpoint...
9. I will be back to play again! true, of course!!
~Bonus~ Question (stole this idea from wild fl0w3r!)
10. If I was the moderator of this meme, one question I would ask is........ Do you believe that you 'fit' the profile of your astrological star sign? (nice way to get questions otto!!)
no bowling tonight - i've done something to my back and it hurts so i'm going to rest up tonight...
the final straw : snow patrol
