You're so much prettier when you smile

There's a Pacific Islands forum going on in New Zealand at the moment. This involves the leaders of Pacific nations tiki touring around various places. For security purposes, the leaders and their spouses travel on separate buses. Which was all fine until a bus driver told Julia Gillard to get on the spouses' bus. For those who've only ever heard of Bush, Clinton and Obama, Julia Gillard is the Australian Prime Minister. Hilarity ensued.

Where values of hilarity include a bunch of eyerolling from women all over Oceania, and some pretty barbed comments about the assumptions this driver's gaffe was based in.

Because fuck. That's all I can think of to say, really. What the fucking fuck is going on in this country? First that Alasdair Thompson dickhead, now this. *gnng*

I have all my ducks in a row. Seriously, they are alphabetised. Mallards, paradise, pekings, to the left. I'm not sure what's up with me but in the last year I've stopped nailbiting and smoking, got on top of my paperwork with Tats Folder Of Important Bits Of Paper, and now I have everything related to the move organised, right down to the carpet cleaner for the end-of-tenancy at the old house and getting the power on at the new one, with three weeks to spare. OMGWTFBBQ.

Last night I downloaded the trial version of Atlas.ti (thanks for the rec, thatgirljj). This will be helpful if I can figure it out fast enough - last night I was able to code over 200 replies with demographic information in a logical way!

I like living in the future.
