I gotta say how proud of my countrymen I am. How nonchalantly do we all seem to be taking this?

Only way to take it mate.. Treat it as deadly serious but also have a damn good laugh about it too.. Only way to confront fear is to laugh at it..

I hope they find the people responsible for these false alarms and put them away for a long time.

Not sure about that! Only way to confront fear is to face it and work through it. For some that might mean laughter but not everyone.

Yeah - Qantas Base at Sydney got the same thing this morning. I sincerely hope they find some of these hoax merchants and send them to prison to play Mommas and Poppas with big angry boys depraved of lave and attention....

ahhh, all over!

well, we got evacuated, sprayed and told to go home. i still don't know if i'm going to work tomorrow or not, or if it really was anthrax or not.

anyway, there was no panic. we took it really well, walked around, rang up people and informed them that everything is ok, we're alive, etc. etc. i was laughing around and making jokes cuz it just didn't affect me. same with most other ppl. i was with two other guys and we were perving on chicks, :D as i said, it's all good... :)

hopefully it won't happen again cuz i need the money - i can't afford to not work. hehe

Found an unmarked red envelope in my mailbox the other day and nearly shat myself. I have never been so scared about opening my mail in my life. I checked it out and found it to be some health or diet thing. I was so p!ssed I am tempted to write a nasty letter to the mob that sent it. The joys of living in Canberra.
