A maroon plague of ...


They were not locusts but they were swarming tonight. I walked out of work today and totally got my crank on. I was tired, getting a cold and it's already dark so the cranky rating on the 'crowd/festival rage scale' is about 7.5 (on a scale of one to 10, where one is relaxed, sitting on the grass with a cold beverage and ten is pressed between a large, sweaty man and an anemic, girl gyrating like a frog in a sock) already. The hoards or 'swarms' of bogan masses that steamed out of the train station toward me bumped that 7.5 right up to a good nine, maybe 10.

Biblical ... from here



As you can tell I love football and tonight is the State of Origin game in Brisbane. Tonight, for me, just confirmed that the colour maroon must join the ranks of 'things that we'd be better off without'. Bagpipes, the recorder, toaster covers, I could go on. Here are some things that are nicer than football and also the colour maroon.

It's a plague in my shower ... here

Dogs that sleep by your side and have little dreams (complete with quiet barking and 'running' paws)

Amen.

My husband and I left work late this afternoon, and then did the grocery shopping in the largely vacant aisles.
