This Thursday at All Bar Nun in O’Connor Election08’s celebrity candidate Mark Parton will be picking up the gauntlet flung down by Adam Verwey and showing off his city management skills in the RiotACT Sim Challenge.

Will Mark be able to beat the city management ratings of his young critic? How will he actually manage a city? And what are his priorities?

Do you really want to miss out on the answers to these questions and many more?

All Bar Nun, 7pm, Thursday. Don’t be the one who missed it…

Sometimes I dream….

I must admit I did smoke a packet of Winfield Red a day, and two if I went out or was pulling an all nighter. Then the nice man at the Kaleen servo made me go down to blue. I quit, cold turkey, in 1992. Even the nerves in my teeth were hurting, and I was sick as a dog for six months after. But, given that I tend to have a fairly addictive personality I have done pretty well I think. Sometimes I dream I am smoking and when I wake up I can’t remember if I am a smoker or not. That’s what happens when you get older, young ‘un!


… but only to other people! Don’t you worry about that!!

After last time I’m in again, even if I was rather crook on Friday and accosted by a soldier at Trinity…

I still hoping one of these Sim City adventures will fall on a night when I able to come along.

Granny 3:13 pm 01 Oct 08

I will probably see you there, peterh.

: )

Just don’t get too close, as I have managed to contract a cough recently. It makes my grannyliness all the more pronounced to have a hacking cough, so I am considering keeping it. Although I may need to get myself a spitoon, after all!

aha! may be able to get a late pass. or not. want to see mark’s results for simcity….

and catch up with mark again…

I can’t decide if Mark Parton or Val Jeffries has the worst ad so far. Although they do have an amateurish element that makes me quite enjoy them. It was mean of Zed not to let them use his nice blue backdrop. Actually, Val should’ve filmed his ad on a firetruck. It’d be like that episode of Seinfeld where Kramer gets his hands on one.

Wide Boy Jake said :

Saw Mark’s ad on TV last night featuring the single lane GDE, school closures and “Rhizome” and I thought it was a Liberal ad. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it probably is a duck.

no more ducks!
