Since 2010

I'm Australian

Thursday 15 October 2015

It’s done. Said the pledge, met the Lord Mayor of Melbourne, and got my plant. I’m an Aussie.

But still Scottish.

I’m Scossie.

Top 10 movies

Saturday 3 October 2015

  1. Apollo 13
  2. Ocean’s Eleven (2001)
  3. Toy Story 3
  4. Erin Brockovich
  5. Thelma and Louise
  6. Monsters University
  7. The Social Network
  8. 21
  9. Sunshine
  10. The Green Mile

Not as many Pixar movies in there as I initially though there would be, but I reckon Finding Nemo and The Incredibles would be somewhere in 11-15.

There are also a few fairly recent movies (Inside Out, Gravity, and Big Hero 6) which nearly made it, but I think I’ll wait and see how they mature.

AFL grand final public holiday

Saturday 26 September 2015

I love living in a country which declares public holidays for sporting events!

I, Philip Dalidakis, Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, and Minister responsible for administering the Public Holidays Act 1993, appoint under section 7(1)(a) of the Public Holidays Act 1993 –

  • Easter Sunday; and
  • the Friday before the Australian Football League Grand Final,

as public holidays in Victoria.
