Vote Greens Maybe - 22:39
I have had the parodies of the Call me maybe song in my head again today (the Orica Green edge one was brilliant and there are some inspired versions out there). This had me thinking of different lyrics, maybe something to suggest people vote Green this Saturday for a better and fairer Australia.

Vote Green Maybe
I threw a wish in the well
For a better Australia today
I looked at our leaders today
And now they're in our way

I'll not trade my freedom for them
All our dollars and cents to the rich
I wasn't looking for this
But now they're in our way

Our democracy is squandered
Broken promises
Lies everywhere
Hot nights
Winds are blowing
Freak weather events, climate change

Hey I get to vote soon
And this isn't crazy
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe
It's hard to look at our future 
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe

Hey I get to vote soon
And this isn't crazy
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe
And all the major parties
Try to shut us up
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe

Liberal and Labor think they should rule
I take no time saying they fail
They gave us nothing at all
And now they're in our way

I beg for a fairer Australia
At first sight our policies are real
I didn't know if you read them
But it's the Greens way  

Your vote can fix things
Healthier people
Childrens education
Fairer policies
A change is coming
Where you think you're voting, Greens?

Hey I get to vote soon
And this isn't crazy
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe
It's worth a look to a brighter future
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe

Before this change in our lives
I see children in detention
I see humans fleeing horrors
I see them locked up and mistreated
Before this change in our lives
I see a way to fix this
And you should know that
Voting Green can help fix this, Green, Green, Green...

It's bright to look at our future 
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe

Hey I get to vote soon
And this isn't crazy
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe
And all the major parties
Try to shut us up
But here's my idea
So vote Greens maybe

Before this change in our lives
I see children in detention
I see humans fleeing horrors
I see them locked up and mistreated
Before this change in our lives
I see a way to fix this
And you should know that
So vote Green Saturday
Call Me Maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen)
I threw a wish in the well
Don't ask me I'll never tell
I looked at you as it fell
And now you're in my way

I trade my soul for a wish
Pennies and dimes for a kiss
I wasn't looking for this
But now you're in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans
Skin was showing
Hot night
Wind was blowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
It's hard to look right at you baby
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
And all the other boys
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me maybe

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
You gave me nothing at all
But still you're in my way

I beg and borrow and steal
At first sight and it's real
I didn't know I would feel it
But it's in my way

Your stare was holding
Ripped jeans
Skin was showing
Hot night
Wind was blowing
Where you think you're going baby?

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
It's hard to look right at you baby
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
I missed you so so bad, bad, bad, bad....

It's hard to look right at you baby
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here's my number
So call me maybe
And all the other boys
Try to chase me
But here's my number
So call me maybe

Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
I missed you so bad
I missed you so so bad
Before you came into my life
I missed you so bad
And you should know that
So call me, maybe

The lots of vert lunch run, reasons to live in Canberra - 14:47

Great view of the lake from the single track on the steep side of BM (fullsize)
This run that is so easy to get out for at lunch is a great quality climbing session and shows off canberra beautifully. What fun.

Photos and some words are online on my Lots of vert lunch run page.
