I am eagerly awaiting Captain Morrison’s and his army puppet’s ‘non’ information session this afternoon. Will he try and explain how some uninvited ‘visitors’ have been having crab eating camp outs on Christmas Island despite all the monitoring and surveillance that he has been gloating about in Parliament this week. - JoanneH

I'm thrilled that Jackie French is the new Children's Laureate ... her wonderful Australian stories are always in high demand in my school library ... the kindies especially love reading about the her naughty wombat and the older students were 'fighting' to be next to borrow her 2013 CBCA Short Listed Book 'Pennies for Hitler' [I had to buy 4 more copies to cater for the high demand] ... I must admit I shed a tear or two when I read this book prior to presenting it to my classes ... Georg/George was a fascinating and memorable character ... Well done, Jackie ... ! - serenaz
*sigh* the days have long gone now where I actually receive presents. My partner does not 'do' presents, and my kids have grown up and are too broke, so I specifically ask them not to buy me anything. Our family doesn't 'do' presents either. So, as someone who once loved Christmas, it's a real non-event now, and I feel quite removed from the whole shebang.
I am planning to make more of an effort this year. I'll send cards and get a few presents through the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre for my kids.
I feel sad about this article and the comments, actually. Be thankful that people are thinking of you and at least giving you something. - grooviechickie
