And I saw the latest Star Trek movie. I feel I should preface this by saying that I am not a fan of Star Trek. It has been raining for a week ([livejournal.com profile] windrose - did you sneak into Australia and solve the drought with your crazy weather abilities??), and I figured it was the perfect day for sitting in a dark cinema munching on popcorn and malteasers. And if I was ever going to see the Star Trek movie, it had to be on the big screen otherwise I'd never watch it. So, a non-Star Trek fan thoughts on the movie....
Possible Spoilers ahead, but I really doubt it. But consider yourself warned anyway )

Sweet christ on a crutch, wtf is happening in my country??

One state has devastating floods, another is having a mega-bush fire. There is something incredibly wrong with that picture.

So far the bushfire has taken 181 lives with people saying the death toll is definately going to go over 200. It's the biggest disaster we've seen ever. Our largest numbers of deaths outside of wartime. Whole towns have been completely destroyed with some losing 10% of their population. It's just...insane.

I've registered to give blood next week, though by the sound of it every person between the ages of 16 and 70 have done the same thing, and I probably won't get a call back until sometime in the next two or three weeks. (Blood donation enquires have gone from the usual 1500 a month to 13,000 this week.)

I remember the Ash Wednesday fires that happened 20 years ago, and how much they devastated the country, and these ones...these fires are just viscious.

For the past 3 days we've had smoke in the air, which is slightly disturbing. WW is 4 hours from the NSW/Victorian border, but when the sun goes down you can see a glow from the horizon. I cannot even begin to imagine how the people affected by this are going to cope.

This morning when I woke up my water pipes were frozen. I've spent the last five years in the desert. I am not prepared for this, even with all my thermal underwear.

Seriously people who live in snow areas - how you do survive???

Sometimes I really hate the fact my job involves a lot of standing outside playing with water. Then again today I might not be able to play with the water. :crosses fingers:


:Puts on two beanies to walk to the busstop:
