I know! It’s been far too long since I last blogged, but I’ve had some interweb issues. They are all resolved and should not occur again. However, exams begin Monday so I don’t know how often I’ll be able to… oh who am I kidding? What better use of my procrastinatory time is there other than my blog? I won’t be going anywhere.

So what’s happened since I discovered my secret twin? Well…

First of all, I’d like to clap clap for America for voting in Barack Obama as their 44th President! As an Australian resident, it probably doesn’t really matter what I think, but I am pleased with the outcome.

See, if absolutely nothing else, the election of Obama has no doubt improved the way America is perceived by the rest of the world. You know, we were starting to hate on the USA and all, and this election has given them a few brownie points. Clap clap for America! And congratulations Barack Obama. I was rooting for you!

At the same time, I’d like to congratulate John McCain.

Now, why, you ask, would I want to congratulate the LOSER of the American Presidential election?

Well, John McCain ran, knowing full well he would not be able to avoid comparisons to George Bush. It’s unfortunate, that due to Bush’s failures, John McCain never stood a chance. Even though he tried so hard to distinguish himself, even though he made it VERY clear that he did not support Bush, even though he had alot of great policies himself and is, in my opinion, no doubt a competant man (unlike Bush).

I’d like to think that had John McCain run in an alternate universe, where Bush hadn’t destroyed the reputation of the Republican party and America, he would not have been judged so harshly. He DID have some good policies and maybe if he was a little younger and hadn’t had to compete against someone as captivating and inspiring as Obama, McCain would’ve made a decent US President.

Don’t go jumping to conclusions! I was fully, 100% pro-Obama – I just felt McCain had it pretty rough, thanks to a certain evil dimwit. (Oh and Sarah Palin didn’t help either, unfortunately. She seems like a lovely lady, but she was just so NOT right for the position.)

I was watching the news last night, and one political reporter put it quite right when he said: “The Republican Party wasn’t always evil!” and despite the feeling that I’d probably join the Democrats if I were American, I think he was right – just as our Liberal Party wasn’t always perceived as ‘evil’ either.

I didn’t intend to ramble on about US politics this long, so I’ll wrap it up: Obama, congratulations. America, clap clap to you. McCain, I hope I see you continue to try and mend the reputation of your party, you seemed like a pretty decent candidate. That’s all on that topic!

What’s next on the agenda? Oh yes, I wanted to share with you my favourite picture on the interwebs! It has been my favourite for some time and I have yet to see anything more amazing online. (I can’t remember where I found it though, so if anyone does, I’d love to give the creator credit!)

But without further ado, I give you:

lol! Have you ever seen anything as good as that? No, you haven’t. Don’t try and tell me you have, either! I KNOW YOU’RE LYING! It’s epic. So simple, so fantastically hilarious.

Ok, I also have some other fun news. I posted this news on my other blog, here. Another reminder of how due to Perth’s incestously small size. If the gossip is true, I can now play “6 degrees of separation” with so many famous people! Because I have nothing better to do with my time… lol.

What I’ve always wanted to do was link myself back to KEVIN BACON!

Photobucket

I have now successfully accomplished this task. It’s not quite six degrees, but it’s enough for now – I will continue to seek to decrease the degrees between us in the future. Wait! I lie! I’m 6 degrees from Kevin Bacon! Well, if you don’t have to count me as one of the ‘degrees’… If you do, then it’s 7! Yay! Kevin Bacon! Maybe, if you ask nicely, I’ll share with you my degrees to Mr. Footloose himself. I know you’re just green with envy.

Now as all of the above is alot of information to absorb and comprehend, I will go back to study. But fear not! I will be back quicker than you can say “Georgia, you are ridiculous!”.
