Stop what you are doing. I want you to watch this video. CITY FOLKS, I AM TALKING TO YOU. When I first saw this when we moved here, I thought it was some really terrible Late Show / Fast Forward style comedy shop spoof. It is not. In Regional Australia, this palava comes on at around 7:20 TO TELL THE KIDS TO GO TO BED. I am sorry, I tell my kids to go to bed at around 6-6:30 and then we crack open a bottle of wine and clink glasses that the kids are finally quiet and in bed and our time is finally our own for the first time since 5:30am that day.
Channel 10 isn't the only one, but it's the one we see the most. NBN has BIG DOG.
And Channel 7 Prime has the Prime Possum, which I have never seen, because I never see, we never seem to watch channel 7.
I am pretty sure if I was sitting around with MY worker friends and I started singing this song and acting like this, they would hit me in the face. Is it just me, or is it kind of ridiculous???? (CLARIFICATION: Not KIND of ridiculous, but completely ridiculous and insane.)
(ps: Lovely, lovely people. Thanks for all the ace advice and supportive words on my last THINKY post. They genuinely did help I think what is "troubling" me is that since we moved, my main and sole identity here is being Mama, which is lovely, but at the same time kind of one dimensional. I like existing in more 4 dimensional terms. I know, slowly and surely. Today I got asked to be on the board for Rube's preschool which I said yes to, COMMUNITY STUFF, yes Sally, GET INVOLVED.)
