IMG_6317I’ve been trying for a few weeks to get a decent picture of both boys for my office. This, seemingly, is an impossible task. I can get photos in which one of them looks good – looking at the camera with a smile of sorts – but none in which they both look good. Typically Boy Z has a dummy stuck in his mouth or Not Max is crying or Boy Z is pashing his brother or Not Max has a look of terror on his face. They’re most uncooperative little boys. I try to explain to them that their life will be much easier if they obey me unconditionally, but I just don’t seem to be getting far.

This is the best I’ve got so far:

I’ll keep trying.

I’m also trying to find the ultimate Antipodean Christmas song. So far, the best I’ve got is Rolf Harris‘s “Six White Boomers”. Now I like old Rolf, really I do.  But come on Aussies, is this the best you can do?*

I’ve been remiss, well, about a lot of things. But specifically, I wanted to draw your attention to a couple of links that are well overdue.

I did my monthly The Greenists post a week or so ago. Time’s been tight lately, so I cheated a bit and slightly modified a post I wrote for this site a while back. (Shhh, don’t tell Courtney). However, if you haven’t read about The Great Pacific Garbage Patch, head over there and have a look.

I’m a big fan of a good interview and an even bigger fan of myself, so I signed on for Neil’s Great Interview Experiment. Bovidine** blogger Nanny Goats in Panties came up with some great questions, so for even more of me go over and check out the interview on her site.

Finally, and I hesitate to post this one, but I’ve done another guest appearance for everyone’s favorite blog review site. I hesitate because I really did not like this lady’s blog, so I was a wee bit more caustic than I could ever have been in real life. That’s the beauty of an alter ego. At the time of writing, my guest post was not up yet, but have a look some time on Friday for the nastier side of your underwhelming correspondent.

And with that, good night.

UPDATE:

Ask review won’t be up until Tuesday.
