    Me too.

    I believe in the democractic process. I *try* to stay interested in the lead-up to an election.

    But once it's over, I just want everyone to get back to work and get on with it.

    Too right - give a rest already!!!

    Sooooo glad it is over, maybe now that they have stopped wasting money on advertising they can spend some on something important... grrrrrrr

    dancingmorganmouse said...

    Janet said...

    Photoshop can be fun sometimes :)

    Stomper Girl said...

    I just love that picture. Did you do it?

    Stomper Girl said...

    Ah. I see you did.

    Melody said...

    I've been gloating too...

    bluemountainsmary said...

    Be right with you h&b....

    just give me a day or so...

    h&b said...

    Just to clarify - for those not in the know .. Harry Potter does not appeal to me.

    When everyone was crapping on about the latest/last book and it was all over the news and blogs and all anyone could talk about.....

    ... I couldn't have rolled my eyes further back if I had tried...

    I do get bored when the same "news" daily becomes "olds".

    Shapelle Corby, David Hicks, the death of Steve Irwin and the subsequent argument about whether Bindi was being exploited, the election, all drove me slowly insane.

    The fecking, harping, media.

    M said...

    Right on H&B.

    joanne said...

    im still trying to get my eyeballs from the back of my head also .... I am not into Harry - say it loud say it proud!

    Stomper Girl said...

    Honestly! I don't know why I'm friends with you.

    tracey petersen said...

    I am delighted to my very core and happily drinking it all in. I'm never bored with politics.

    the media, however....

    hi thanks for your comments on my blog

    i don't know what the harry potter fuss is about either, my friend who is 38 yrs old forced her husband to line up outside at 1am in the morning to get the last book (and we aren't talking Australia temps here either, this was cold and damp England), I can only wonder why grown people love it so much

    however, saying that, I found myself in the latest movie as a fundraiser for my daughters club and I hate to admit I quite enjoyed...so you never know

    nice blog & nice to meet you

    Sorry to those who love Harry, I can't stand the thought of it/him nor Lord Of The Rings!! And..did I tell you I never saw E.T.

    I think I just immediately hate what most people love.

    Great image, you missed your calling woman!
    (The Big Fella is a hi-res retouch artist up here, he would be impressed too).

    h&b said...

    ha ha - Kiki - I sometimes think the same about myself - if it's popular, i'm somewhere else looking petulant !!

    I saw ET 10yrs after it came out - on the tele !! and .. I loved it .. I cried.. but generally - fantasy/sci-fi - eurghh, get me a bucket. No LOtR here either, thankyouverymuch.

    Kim said...

    H&B I can hear your eyes rolling from here.

    caramaena said...

    Heh, I love Harry Potter, and all sorts of Sci-fi/Fantasy but not that enthused with politics. Great pic though :)

    Joke said...

    As a benighted Yank, I can only second that emotion.

    Partly because I have always thought it presumptuous for a citizen of Nation A to heave his opinion of Nation B's politics to a citizen of Nation B, and partly because I have no idea who stands for what, who was involved in what scandal and so forth.

    That said, I'm dreading the acrimony that will hit the US contingent of the blogosphere in about 8-9 months.

    bluemountainsmary said...

    I' m with you on HP and LOTR and science fiction.

    Could you resume normal service now? Please?

    kylie said...

    so is all the politics and harry potter talk finished... do we get another blog from h&b again

    emma said...

    I am SO SO relieved to hear that some intelligent people are not into Harry. I have struggled my way through Book One & not bothered with the rest. p.s. I only read it the week before the last one came out and only then because I have a customer who says I don't deserve my job if I haven't read them. I am a childrens' bookseller. The shame...
