Well, i've done an honest days work for the first time in 2 1/2 years, and I must say I quite enjoyed it.

Bizarrely one of the first things we were shown (in an OH&S video) was the Valley Parade fire from 85ish. For anyone who isn't familiar with it, Bradford City were celebrating promotion from the (then) 3rd division in the last game of the season but somebody dropped a cigarette into the piles of rubbish under the all-timber stand and a small blaze pretty soon developed into a horrible inferno where about 60 people were killed. It was pretty disturbing footage that i'd only ever seen in part before, the most offensive thing of all being the pissed up yobbos jumping up and down in front of the cameras chanting "We love you City, we do" while people were running around on fire behind them.

So, that was quite nasty. I assume they were trying to make a point about how quickly fire can spread and all that, but it really was quite unnecessary.

Then, in far more entertaining news, we got a "Don't be pissed on the job" video hosted by the guy who played Inspector Grace on Prisoner. I didn't think anyone else there would have watched the show since it finished in 1986 so I had to sit there in silence and enjoy his finest moment in the last 15 years.

So, no A-Grade political comment and analysis here today (or ever for that matter).

Apparently Con Boutsianis is back at South Melbourne though, which is bloody good news after the debacle against the Knights yesterday put our finals chances in terminal doubt.

Blah, carry on with your lives good citizens.
