It's only Tuesday but it feels as if it's 2012. Yesterday's Labour Day holiday didn't extend to universities, so we all had to trot into work while much of the state had a long weekend. When I say all, the car park was remarkably free of vehicles. I'm not suggesting that people were skiving off, you understand. I'm just saying.

I haven't been blogging much because I've been doing little other than work. (And cataloguing the vehicles in the car park.) Unfortunately, although the sheer nuttiness of the Academy is a rich source of material for blog posts, I reckon there's a limit to how much anyone wants to read. So I'll leave it for now. But I'm sure you can hear my teeth grinding, wherever you are.

I heard a great story on the ABC news this morning* but I can't find it on the intaweb. Somewhere in Gippsland, a wombat tunnelled into the bank of a settlement pond and released a sh ... edload of effluent. I'd like to have seen the look on the face of that wombat as it broke through ...


* While I was waiting for the gas heater to warm up the water for the shower. The blasted thing had gone off in the middle of the night.

That's one wombat who won't get any cuddles for a few weeks.

I do so hope it's a true story.
