want beach... beer bad

okies, my feet are a bit swollen, as are my fingers. Uber working + heat = Kat just wants to chill out at the beach! Maybe I'll go tomorrow and spend the whole day there! Anyone want to come with?

Stupid dry hot hotness and hot hot heat.

I worked from 8-5 and then rushed to the local primary school to vote. I love that voting here is compulsory! I think it's great. I also like to take the time to fill out all the boxes on my senate ballot paper, instead of just one number. Yay for the options!

Went to Sizzler with family tonight. It was really nice! Also, family did a bunch of Christmas shopping today. I gave them this peice of paper with a bunch of Myer discounts, and asked them to come to the Garden City Myer, instead of Carousel (our closest) and they did! They came and visited me at work. So we then went to lunch together. It was really nice. But today was super busy. Much as yesterday was also super busy. So super busy! But I hear that it's still not as busy as Christmas *scared*

"chill out at the beach! Maybe I'll go tomorrow and spend the whole day there! Anyone want to come with?"

I was about to say "sure, sounds fun", but then it occurred to me that Perth isn't very close to Sydney. So, maybe not this time.

I love too that voting is compulsory here. I _think_ we're the only country to do that. I think it's a great idea though. It's like the ancient Greek Thucydides said, "in our country, we do not say that a man who takes no interest in politics is a man who minds his own business. We say that he is a man who has no business in being here!"
I voted below the line for the Senate too. It's fun. We're among the 5% of Australians who vote below the line. It's sad it's such a low number. Gah, use your democratic powers people!

Yah for Sizzlers. I haven't been there for awhile.
I've worked in a large department store during Christmas before. It gets hectic, but on the plus side, the working day goes fast because it's busy.

It's looking disturbingly overcast! *grumbles at sky*

Actually, I shouldn't grumble... God's in control of the weather and grumbling at the sky = grumbling at God. Thank you God for the weather, but could you please clear it up so I can go to the beach?

I actually vote Christian Democrats first, but I think if I were to put a "1" in their box, then their preference would go to liberal. So I fill out all the little boxes instead. I actually have like 2-3 preferences before one of the major parties, because I support minority parties, even the greens who have so many policies I disagree with.

I wish we had compulsary voting here. It's a good year if we get like, 30% turnout. :-(
