awesome run tonight — a completely unexpected 12.35km in, my iPod tells me, one hour and one second; now a little tired but not hurting
just published a bunch of photos from yesterdays same sex marriage rally — http://wintermute.com.au/photos/album/37/
Attended the National Day of Action for Same Sex Marriage, 1August2009; we started with a gathering at Town Hall and marched to Darling Harbour to hold a mass "illegal wedding" outside the ALP Conference. The same day, the Conference delegates passed a resolution to remove the definition of marriage as man+woman from the ALP platform, but stopped short of recognising any sort of union.
coco avant chanel was brilliant — well told, well acted, and absolutely gorgeous; love her style, looks great on audrey tautou

wine and pâté on toast in lieu of running and eating properly — it's one of those days, I'm afraid (recommend twin islands sauv blanc tho)

got home and music was playing with no one around — spooky — discovered I'd left it on, real quiet, since this time yesterday!
I don't know what negative reviewers were expecting; potter was actually really good — best of the set so far and decent in its own right
potter it is, coco shall have to wait; cinema is, thankfully, rather sparsely populated
a movie today, but not sure which — it's a toss-up between coco avant chanel and harry potter — am I feeling arty or trashy?
haha, gotta love bert and ernie RT @untoward When was the last time you saw this? http://bit.ly/PP60Q Are you emotionally secure enough?
got home to find a hole in my bedroom roof — http://bit.ly/orNkV — not unexpected tho, at least they found the leak

just survived a 100-minute teleconference — a new record; glad I downed that coffee beforehand
just finished reading Charles Stross' Singularity Sky — thrilling read, and full of fascinating political tidbits — great scifi

ran the elusive 10km — a pb, and a beautiful way to end a crazy week — legs are now on strike but body pumped full of happy-making chemicals
