I have reasons to devote an entire post to this subject.

1. This is officially the last time I forget to buy something to make my lunch before work, thus forcing me to rely on takeaways. As it was I opted for a steak sandwich (because this suburb doesn't have the means to rustle up anything better*). One would think something as simple as that wouldn't have too much grease on it. One would be wrong. It's hard to believe that as a teenager I used to eat so much of this crap. Now I feel like I'm about to throw up, which mightn't be such a bad thing as my office could probably use a little colour.

2. Crap is also a suitable definition for the standard of candidates from pretty much every party in the Queensland State election which has been scheduled for September 9. I'll actually be riding The Wonders of Glorious Mee that day, so I'll need to cast an absentee vote -- assuming I bother voting. Maybe I'll just vote informal. There is nobody in this entire state who deserves my vote right now, and certainly none who will be standing in this election. Actually, my name "disappeared" from the electoral roll just before the last Federal Election after some criticism of government policy on this page. It may have just been coincidence, but I'm thinking about trying it again this week.

Maybe I'll post some pictures from yesterday's ride when I get home this evening.

* The difficulty in finding anything decent to eat around here really is astonishing, considering the relative ease with which I was able to obtain more nutrious, appealing and cheaper food in remote parts of New Zealand and Tasmania previously. I suppose it's just further proof that in Queensland one needs to make allowances.
