State of Origin bore...

I know I'm not the only one, however I feel a strong vibe in the air that I am outstandingly outnumbered in the amount of people who actually care about the state of origin rivalry between Queensland and New South Wales. I simply do not care.

I went out with my mum today and as we sat for a cuppa and people watched (as we often do) I noticed many people casting their social preference votes for who they backed in the game. It breaks my heart to see so many people proudly display their support for a ball game, and yet not half as many publically show their support for, say, Human Rights Day. I strongly feel that there are many more worthy topics that deserve not only the social support, but the media coverage and funds to go with it.

So tonight, I spend my time nibbling away at a bar of fair trade chocolate and rekindling my love for words of power while I listen to some calming tunes. Newton Faulkner or The Avett Brothers, perhaps.
