I thought I should post a brief Christmas message; if it’s good enough for the Queen it’s good enough for me. May all loyal Troppo readers (and even the disloyal ones) have a happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year. It won’t surprise readers to learn that I don’t expect to be blogging over the next few days.
However, I can feel a blogging renaissance of sorts coming on. Whether you regard that as a promise or a threat is entirely up to you. I’ll be spending 2-3 weeks from next Monday chained to my PC at Charles Darwin University doing a major revision/upgrade of the Law School website and External Degree resources. It’s a long, tedious job, and I’m bound to feel the need to relieve the boredom with an occasional blog post.
Pity the whole country is on holidays during that time, so there’ll probably be bugger all to write about just when I’m feeling a burst of blogging motivation. Timing was never one of my strong points. Fortunately, I already have a few topics in mind. One is yesterday’s Victorian Court of Appeal decision to reject a Deep Vein Thrombosis class action against the airlines, the judgments in which I intend getting my head around while digesting Christmas pudding.
BTW I’m planning another cheap Virgin Blue wet season escape from Darwin for a couple of weeks from around 16 January. I intend borrowing my brother-in-law’s camper van again and doing a circuit from Sydney to Melbourne with a short stopover at Canberra. Any bloggers motivated to meet up for a cleansing ale or three should drop me a line by email. However, I’ll probably have a 15 year old daughter in tow, which means I won’t able to get quite as blind drunk as Scott Wickstein did at the last blog bash. Mind you, he had a pretty good excuse.
Again merry Christmas to all.
