Okay. Well, the nearest book to me right this second is the Griffith Review, Autumn edition (topic: Re-Imagining Australia), my birthday present from my parents, the first edition of four, which arrived in the mail today. Yippee. I love the Griffith Review. I hope one day to have something published in it. This issue is quite political, so this may be terribly boring.

"Moving beyond a system based on a half-baked colonial framework has long aligned with popular aspirations. Today business remains keen to support quite dramatic surgery to achieve simpler, more efficient and uniform approaches to national regulatioin. How to fix the problems of federalism is again a major political topic."

Well, it's kinda interesting to me, but I won't get angry if that sent you to sleep :) I find politics and issues of national identity and all that stuff interesting ponderings these days, feeling as I do like I'm kinda a bit out of the matrix. I don't feel as patriotic as I once did. (Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel, apparently, and so I'm finding other places to take refuge in before I return there :)

Consider yourself tagged if you want to play.
