Come on up and grab yourself a beer.

I'm back, what did I miss?

I’m actually back at work again, and look like making it through the whole day. I quite like the idea of having several days off work then going in on Friday, just in time to have the weekend off. Of course, it would only really be fun if I wasn't sick.

Given that I am still feeling a little scattered today, I bring you a random collection of things I noticed today.

A Fox network affiliate in America has pulled the reality television show Married by America after only one airing, stating that the show "did not reflect prevailing standards of good taste" and was "clearly demeaning to the institution of marriage."

For those of you who don’t know, Married by America features five singles who are given a selection of potential partners by the show. Family, friends and (naturally) the viewing public, pick their perfect mate, and supposedly, the happy couple then commits to marriage.

What disturbs me is that the station actually needed to air the pilot show before it figured out that it was not in good taste.

QUIZ FOR THE DAY: What Revolution Are you?

The Canberra Legislative Assembly has voted to remove discriminatory language against gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex people from ACT Legislation. The Bill amends 37 Acts so they recognise same-sex relationships, and cover things such as domestic violence, property law, medical treatment, and guardianship of the ageing or mentally infirm. A second stage of law reform will involve issues such as civil unions and parenting.

Who says Canberra is just full of useless, pot-smoking, porn-obsessed public servant wankers?

OK, don't answer that question.
