Saving the Day(light)

Western Australia's Legislative Council has finally voted (after weeks of procrastinating) to go ahead with a three-year trial of daylight savings time, putting us back in line with all the other regions on earth who really can't understand why it's even an issue. Starting December 3, our clocks go forward an hour, just like they should have done back in October.

No more 5.30am starts! Woo-hoo!

Meanwhile, as the higher-ups have been engaged in their weighty debate, I've had to put T3 on hold for the day to work on a fabulously grotesque tale of plastic-surgery-gone-wrong for one of the nationals. You know the kind of tale, the grimly fascinating sort of yarn you know you shouldn't enjoy reading but you just ... can't ... help it.

Also been watching a very interesting DVD, but it's still on media embargo, so can't talk about it yet. Next week for that one ...

Apart from that, the day's only been distinguished by catching my daughter in the middle of creating a crisp-crushing mechanism on the living room carpet, involving the use of a hand weight and some string.

No more Road Runner cartoons for her for a while ...

wasnt 'saving the day' a track on the Ghostbusters soundtrack? The bit where they get out of Ecto 1 at the foot of the building before the big finish? You know, right before the road cracks and shit.

For me to confirm that you're correct would be to reveal that I owned a copy of the soundtrack.

So I can't.

Nor can I remember the name of the band that recorded it. Nope. No way. Uh-uh.

There you are then - not at all embarrassed.

I do really want to watch Ghostbusters again though ...
