Well clearly it's been a (relatively) long time between posts. Somehow updating this page seems to have been forgotten in the last week or so. With no big rides last weekend, perhaps there hasn't been as much to talk about. In any case, it's become apparent over the last few days that the idiots have taken over this city as seems to happen at this time of year. There was the stupid car race to bring out all the hoons a few weeks ago, and now we have schoolies' week (accompanied by the traditional ceremony that involves thousands of people being arrested and then released without charge).

While my commute avoids Sufferer's Parasite (thus removing the only reason I'd ever have for visiting that place), the fever seems to have caught on up on Bundall Road. The number of lane changes I'm forced into on a standard commute to avoid idiots has doubled -- not a bad job for a 17km round trip. The slipway behind the Sorrento shops has been temporarily closed with a sign saying "This private lane way is temporarily closed." Evidently the word "private" comes about because somebody doesn't like rat-runners using it (as they do every day). Hint: Everyone already knows it's private, but unless there are some consequences of using it that are likely to affect them in some way, most of them just don't care. A sign informing them of this is largely redundant, but as I've said before, we live in an age of global tokenism.

There is some good news, with my new bike likely to debut later this week. I've gone for another hybrid, but as I related in an earlier post, the way I use it will change slightly. I've actually been checking out some potential places to take the MTB on the weekend on Google maps, but that may have to wait. Finally, I managed to see Wil Anderson in Brisbane the other night. For those not familiar with the former Glasshouse host, he's the funniest man in this country today, and also the best political satirist now that Peter Berner is apparently no longer doing that.

Finally, with just four days to go before the federal election, the final word goes to former ALP leader Mark Latham . May the least worst (i.e best scare campaign) win. We've now had basically five consecutive elections based on negative politics in this country (i.e "vote for us so you don't get stuck with them"), and I for one am a little tired of it. I'm not entirely sure whether my most recent attempt to actually stay on the electoral roll was successful, but I do know that if it wasn't, I won't be bothering next time around.
