In a win for commonsense, the advertising watchdog has cleared a billboard with the theme 'any child can be born homosexual'.
Any discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is just as bad as sexism, racism or ageism.
Good work to GOA for donating $60000 worth of advertising space across Brisbane.
I've just signed up for the Spartan Beast in Sydney. 21km and obstacles to boot. Let's hope that the trail marking is better than the Spartan Super in Brisbane last month. Bring on the trifecta!
The Talisman Concept continues to take shape. I've now written 47000 words, 33 scenes, and 12 chapters as things currently stand.
I'm aiming to have the first draft written by GenreCon 2013 which starts 01 Oct. The whip is cracking!
The Spartan Super at McCrossin was a fair workout. Check out details of my workout.
Despite poor organisation and trail marking, the event was great fun. About 20 obstacles (most of which I actually found during the course - missed some due to the poor markings) over about 14 km (some of which I ran twice, and some of which I missed, again due to poor trail markings) made it fairly challenging.
I'm still contemplating the Spartan Beast (21km) in Sydney in November. Happy to do it if I can find the money...
Check out my post on middle class poverty. I'm poor. Deal with it.
