This, I have to admit is very funny.

Having said this, I don't know if one can help but have a sneaking sense of admiration for the gentlemen in these photographs...

Went to Evanescence on Saturday night with the Smurfette.

Generally a well-performed show, although the lack of the songs 'Everybody's Fool' from Fallen and 'Snow White Queen' from The Open Door were disappointments.

I was also a little struck by Amy Lee's outfit. She wore a black singlet / tank-top, with a black tutu and black boots.

I couldn't help but think that the outfit was disturbingly similiar to the pink outfit worn by Sarah Jessica Parker in the opening credits to Sex and the City... another mental association to blame the Smurfette for...

My thoughts regarding our PM John Howard's comments regarding Senator Obama. Our PM has been in an odd position regarding the Iraq war in that, although he has been among the most vocal supporters for the US Administration, the contribution of Australia in terms of funds, men and personnel has been quite minor. My understanding is that approximately 1,400 Australian troops are currently stationed in Iraq, and chiefly in areas far from the 'hot-spots' of Baghdad and so forth. The only Australian death has been a soldier (Pte Kovco) who died in an in-barracks shooting (suicide or accident). Australian sentiment against the war, although legitimate, has been tempered by the actual lack of real investment in the war by Australia. I would say that Howard's rhetoric against Senator is a classic case of the 'anything less than fanatic cheerleading emboldens the enemy' mind-set that the US administration has excelled at. Our Liberal government is trailing the Labour opposition in polling on almost every issue except national security and economic management. Howard is attempting to focus our national conversation on his perceived 'strength' rather than his weaker issues such as climate change and / or current water difficulties.
