Second Semester Begins

1.25am and it's first day of second semester here in blustery Melbourne. As bleary-eyed university students across the nation sleep soundly in their beds (or procrastinate, like I am, well into the night), the refuse bins in university grounds everywhere are, no doubt, being emptied in preparation for the hordes of first-week students that will arrive blundering through the cafeterias and parlaying across the campus later this morning.

I'll bring my digital camera and see if I can take some happy snaps of the waste piling to unsurmountable heights before being gracefully toppled to the ground by the searing winter winds. When will the administration listen?
