  1. Nice video, you seem a little … out there as it were. I feel your pain though I’ve been laid up in bed for the past week because of my terribly designed legs deciding to destroy my ability to walk at the age of 20 (damn you poorly evidenced deity). I would appreciate your medication at the moment the medicine my doctors gave me isn’t helping too much. I think I have entered a similarly addled state due to the fact that I have slept exactly 0 of the last 72 hours and thus have resorted to rambling incessantly on the internet … and am now very aware of this … and feel very much in the third person. I guess this is better than being convinced my hands are no longer attached to my body.

  2. A worthy Campaign Rebecca, I’d mention the date of New Zealand’s Census (it was to be in a couple of weeks) but since Christchurch has just been devastated by a huge earthquake they’ve cancelled it. No idea at this stage when it will end up happening (if at all).

  3. The census in Bulgaria already passed.The interesting thing was that there were 2 separate questions about religion:The first one-“Do you consider yourself religious?”.And the second one-“In what religious community have you been raised?(In this question they pointed the customs and traditions of the family for example)”It was strange.I wonder which of the two questions will be used to depict the persentage of religious people-I sincerely hope it is the first one.

  4. Ouch Rebecca, I can sympathise as I badly fractured my back and neck badly in an accident many years ago. Periodically they like to remind that whilst they mended well, I should be grateful. Or else. Unfortunately because I’ve had so many if them over the years, the meds fail to give any ‘recreational effect’.

    I liked the Paint clip, you still managed to make you point as effectively as ever.

    Get well soon.

    PS: Will do on the Aussie census.
