so my dad says ‘do you know who is the (current) longest serving conservative minister in Australia?’ and I say ‘Alexander Downer’ and he says ‘Karlene Maywald’

 oh, how we roared

(because we’d had waaaaaay too much to drink and don’t I wish I could tell you all of our witty repartee because it has been one laugh after a minute, but I’ve had to kick the boys off the computer and we’ve let them use a lot of our bandwidth just to keep them quiet, but we’ve let them stay up and keep telling them ‘this is history’ and of course they appreciate it…can you tell there’s more bottles empty than there are people?).

Talk to you tomorrow. Or maybe the day after.
