It's another blogging slowdown here at chez susoz. It's been a rather difficult week - the work discussion left me in tears and with a reduced job (and income). Both car registrations have come up and we're down to our last $5 (actually, we're thousands below that, in credit card debt.) Some unwelcome health news meant that I had to scurry to see my acupuncturist and osteopath, who both cost money (but are worth it); co-parent lost my EFTPOS card (money seems to be a recurring theme here); I now seem to have a mild fever. Ho hum. Meanwhile there's the usual quota of obnoxious news. I just do not understand why proponents of increased police powers to combat terrorism don't want suspects to have a lawyer with them. Am I missing something obvious?
