Updated #introduction to reflect job change... I’m a Greens member of the Legislative Assembly from Canberra, Australia. Here for progressive policy-making, environment, inequality issues. Also into roller derby and other sports. If I post lots about baking, I’m probably stressed. If I post lots about my dog, I’m probably happy.

These are amazing colorizations of the black-and-white photos.
My partner’s watching True History of the Kelly Gang right now. I saw it when it first hit Netflix. My Irish Catholic ancestors lived in the same area as the Kelly gang when they were active. I reckon the family relationships are about right, and the landscape is right, but they have take some liberties with the costuming.
I am really looking forward to next week. We get to do all our strategic planning, new staff arrive that I am very excited to work with, and I have been told I am attending Queer Zumba and to wear lycra and there will be media.
So I get to spend the weekend going through my extensive lycra collection to find the perfect outfit.
Look what arrived in the mail! Supporting the Australian Unemployed Workers Union in my work at the Assembly today (and looking forward to wearing it on the floor next sitting week). Thanks @Andrea 😎
