I think he's even clean atm although I don't actually know he just hasn't randomly messaged me about being on hard drugs since we were both in the hospital at the same time in February

I imagine it would be kind of awkward finding out that someone you know is in the psych unit at the same time as you.

Mine still have lots so hopefully they will be there on discount for me tomorrow like every prior year. The chemists sometimes have the lindt rabbits on discount too and IGA has a bunch of those 1kg rabbits that no one will buy full price.

Partner is very pro dst because she is from Melbourne and you need all the daylight you can get there, but I'm from a proper city where we don't need any extra and don't want dst. Closest we have come to having a massive dust up

It depends. Years ago I was volunteering at the psych unit here and my ex husband's best mate got involuntarily checked in. I thought it would be super awkward but they had him on so many tranqs that he didn't seem to recognise me

This is completely unrelated but reminded me of the time my cousin was high on meth and tried to rob me because she didn't recognise me and when I called her by name she freaked out and thought I was a cop and ran away

A friend of mine was working in brothels on and off for most of her twenties and also spent a bit of time in and out psych units. One time I went to visit her at hospital and she told me that when she arrived she recognised one of the nurses as a former client and had to pull one of the hospital staff aside to let them know she couldn't be around that nurse.

It didn't occur to me to ask what exactly she told the hospital about him, but she didn't end up transferring anywhere and never mentioned him again. Presumably he was put somewhere else in the hospital, but that's a heck of a thing to have to discuss with coworkers.

What I'm taking away here is that I need to learn the names of all the crackheads in town and then the next time they try to break into my garage I just need to yell their name out the window and they'll run away. Sounds like a good plan

"Oooh, got a little too serious. You okay there, little buddy?"


I don't like getting up in the dark, it just sucks so bad. I've had enough years having to wake up at 4am or earlier, I don't want to go back to regularly waking up before the sun rises.

I'm happy for Brisbane to stay dst free

I don't understand daylight savings and I refuse to. I wake up when I need to poo poo and go to bed when I'm sure I'm done making GBS threads for the day. The human body just knows these things and clocks are an unnecessary step.

If you live somewhere with so little daylight you need to "save" it you're doing it wrong. In god's country we're daylight spendthrifts and bloody well proud of it.

WA tried out the old daylight savings a coupla times. It fuckin sucked. It was like eye searing daylight at 9:30pm or whatever.

Daylight savings is some hare-brained solution to the fact that work vampires the best third of the day

I think I always just accepted DST as a thing that happened every year and never thought about the artifice or politics behind it.
Now it's just part of the changing of the seasons to me, never occurred to think of it as good or bad
