Dishes - Most done, second load is small
Washing - did last night, must bring in
Banking
Shirts to work
Vote
Medicare
HBF

Did all the deposits and rebates via forms because the queues were ridiculous. Which means they'll take a few days to clear but that's no great loss. Better that queueing for an hour or so.

And in other news. Another case of "got my licence out of a Weeties box". There I am cruising along in the right lane outside Karrinyup shopping centre. I see a white car in front of me... heading towards me. Not at a great speed, but still, 40-50kph. Luckily the traffic was such that I was easily able to indicate and dodge the incorrect driver - who looked to be a middle aged woman who didn't look as bewildered as I expected. In the rearview mirror I see other cars indicate to get around her, but back there the traffic was thicker. I had to turn then so I didn't see how it all ended up, but I'm wondering how the heck she ended up there.

Now to get packing. And doing other things that need to be done here before I head off.

A proposal.

I live in Perth, Australia. People here are notorious for being unable to merge properly.

Problem is the freeway is full of mergers and often grinds to a complete halt during rush hour.

I have a proposal.

Get all the people off the road who cannot drive. I'd guess about two thirds of the drivers out there got their licences out of a Weeties packet. Lessons and tests should be a LOT more thorough and yearly. People should be able to report stupid drivers and they should be investigated (admittedly, the only ways I can think of HOW to do this would cost a lot of money and bring down the wrath of civil libetarians *rolls eyes*)

If we get all the dickheads off the road there will be less traffic, less congestion, less air pollution, less road accidents and therefore fatalities. It'll all be good!

Hazard?

Today, at different times but along the same section of Scarborough Beach Road. Cars driving along with their hazard lights on for no obvious reason. Both cars were old bombs but I don't recall a law being introduced saying old bombs had to drive with their hazards on.

Weird, and kinda distracting.

Just went birding and had a positively boring time. Well, no new and exciting birds anyway. Read about it here.

Guy in a truck today decided he was exempt from indicating or checking to see if the lane was clear before changing into it, causing me to brake heavily and almost have a car up my ass. Lovely.

Brrrr )

RSPCA again today. Seemed like the work got done really quick today. My pink shirt - now christened as my RSPCA shirt has even more white spots on it now. But I don't have as much of a bleach headache today.

It's amazing, you go in in the morning and all the cats are at the doors miaowing away, and one by one they shut up as you get their pens cleaned and - most importantly - feed them. They are only fed in the mornings which I find a little weird but they are on maintainence diet, I guess they only get as much as they need because they can't afford to feed them loads and chuck out most of it. They gobble the food as soon it's put down, then wash themselves, then curl up to sleep - well, most of them anyway.

Perry is a pretty tabby with a white underside, he's gorgeous, I'd take him home. Then there's Jeri the tortie who I didn't get to pat today because I didn't do her pen, who I am in love with as well. And of course there is Billy, a 3 year old ginger tabby. He is SUCH a smooch! I put his food down, showed it to him but he wasn't interested. All he wanted to do get attention. He'd reach up my leg and look at me in a "don't go!! Pat me!!" kinda way so I had to give him pats and scritches for a while until eventually I HAD to keep moving and do the other cats. Once he realised he'd get no more attention he ate.

Man as soon as the lease runs out here I am SOOOO looking for a cat friendly house.
