*hnrk* Oh my gosh I had the most terrible nightmare. I dreamt that Australia returned one of the most comically evil governments it has ever known. Thank god that wasn't the case. Oh well now to have my tea and check the news.

@MsPraxis just saw you tweet on Eurovision semi final 1!

丹 when you get an official service email from someone's home account (presumably)... hello

* Clock hand (the hour hands just hands limply pointing at 6pm permanently).

And then there's the expected things to go missing and get broken...

This is Phizzy. Phizzy loves her brother Pi, and she shows him this regularly by grooming him.

This is Pi. Pi loves his little sister and gets comfort from being close to her.

We're all a little bit like Pi.

Holiday weekend, best way to relax.

No washing machine here and I pay people to clean, so nothing for me to do except read, watch TV and snooze.

I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."

I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)

Back in paradise

Long trip up but so worth it!
