To all my mates back in Oz and around the world, Happy Australia Day! I hope amongst all the celebrations or solemn moments, time is taken to reflect upon life the universe, and everything; in particular, the experiences of "the other". If nothing else, give a moment of thought to Australian of the Year Adam Goodes, and his efforts to combat racism in Australian society and reconcile the shames of the past with a hopeful future.
Adiós 2013. Some of you was good, some of you was bad, but most of you was interesting. Speaking of which ... many, many thanks to the always wonderful and awesome 42 and the delightful Fuchsia for one of the, if not the, best New Year's Eve celebrations of my life. But oh dear lord, please, never again. Never ever again. Never ever ever ever ever ever ever EVER again. Ever.
