So That's What This Hunger Games Thing Is

Okay, they're "young adult" novels, but that doesn't actually require the writing to be eye-gougingly awful. I'll stick with Terry Pratchett or Garth Nix, thanks all the same.

Apropos Of Very Little

Does anyone remember the year - probably in the late nineties, maybe 2000 or so - when suddenly every woman in the world took to wearing orange and black and it looked like the planet had been invaded by giant anthropoid bees?

There is actually a reason I ask.  Well, two reasons, one being that I can't remember.

He was fearlessly honest and outspoken, and will be missed.

On The Plus Side

The water levels in Sydney's dam system are at their highest since 1998.

On the minus side:
Residents of four towns have been evacuated as floodwaters covering an area the size of France sweep across NSW.
We don't do things by halves.

Oh yes: Warragamba Dam, Sydney's main reservoir (about two trillion litres), is expected to overflow tonight, into the already swollen Nepean River.  Sydney is still on water restrictions.
