Happy 2nd July!

Spent $688.12 on books and $105.90 on stationery last financial year, according to the dockets just now retrieved from a crumpled yellow envelope. Now if I can just figure out how to discover how much union dues I've paid out all will be well and I may even manage to scrape up enough tax return $$ to get my unbelievably scruffy hair rendered respectable before the commencement of next semester.

I was going to moan and complain a bit more, in the best bloggy fashion, but then I remembered this post from about the same time last year. It's all still transpiring in exactly the same way so you may as well just go and read the old one. Even the email access situation is similar: there may very well be a lag of a couple of weeks between old contract concluding and new one being processed when I might not be able to get into my email. I sincerely hope this turns out not to be the case, partly because I'll need that email address to get into WebCT, but mainly because it's the address used by the thirty or so people giving papers at the Jane Austen conference (including this person - no names mentioned on the blog, please!) and in the next two weeks I'm trying to put together the programme and arrange payment of travel expenses.

And I'd really better get back to doing that, like right now....

OK, so I have nothing witty to say to this, but I just found your blog via Phantom Scribbler and now I am suitably enamoured of it. This may be because (1) I'm an academic (2) I am from Melbourne but now (3) live thousands of miles away in the Old Country. Once I would have said kilometres. Oh, the many tiny tragedies of the expat.

Not forgetting (4) you have cute cats, and made me laugh out loud twice.

I will be back for bazlotto.

Oh, good. Any friend of Phantom's, etc. I had a bit of a rummage in yours too.

Hmm, my comment the other day doesn't seem to have come up. The NTEU used to send me a summary of payments at the end of the financial year, you could phone and ask if they still do.

Comment of the other day doesn't appear to have made it. I looked on their website and they had a statement there for me to use. It doesn't look like they mail one out unless it's asked for. That's fine. Why waste the postage money.
