usually by complete strangers. When I tell them I'm not they look at me in disbelief and dispute my ethnicity. I have had arguments and racial slurs yelled at me. I don't feel the need anymore to prove myself as I once did. What for? I don't care anymore.
I do love living in...

why my iPad takes 8 hours to fully charge, but my phone (iPhone 5C) takes at most an hour?
I've been charging my iPad since 2pm, at that point it was at 5% and it's only at 23% now.
It's not the cord or anything because I use the same one to charge my phone.
We have a huge but harmless spider in Australia called a Huntsman. One summer when my daughter was a toddler, a large Huntsman took up residence in the cornice in our living room. We named her, "Sparkle." She coexisted with us happily in the house until one day she was gone...

When A Girl is quiet
millions of things are running in her mind.
When a Girl is not arguing,
She is thinking Deeply.
When a Girl looks at you with eyes full of questions,

and around my age who would like a texting buddy (: just someone who I can talk to and we can share jokes, talk about anything and everything and just, yeah I'd be cool!
I saw some other people do this and I liked the idea (:
I was at the West Coast/Sydney game on the weekend.
No I didn't boo you.
But I can sympathize with those that have.
Not on a racial level. I take no issue with you being Indigenous.
I do take issue with your self righteousness and your arrogance and your ignorance.
I woke this morning to news that 2 innocent people caught up in yesterdays siege in a Sydney cafe had been fatally shot by the man who held them and many more hostage for 17 hours.
The floral tributes keep on coming to Martin Place, the building there, opposite the cafe, hosts...
An Aussie walks into a pub and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman..
He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a moment.
The woman notices this and asks, 'Is your date running late?'
'No', he replies,'I just got this state-of the-art watch...

Bronwyn Bishop matter and Tony Abbot claims that the system is not perfect and needs to be looked at.
This note is about this matter from a pure ethical point of angle.
1) Do we know any system, processes, procedures etc that are 100% perfect? Indeed...
and I ran into this ole bogan who asked me to come to his house for a barbie. Before I did that I had to stop off at the bottle - o to get a sway so I put them in my eskie and was on my way. On my way there I stopped at the beach and went for a surf but then I thought I would...
