The past few days have been pretty stressful here in the Rudd bunker, there are floods in Queensland, Nicola Roxon’s Mum hassling me about when I’ll give my Health Minister time off to get married, explaining to Heath Ledger’s fan club that a State Funeral isn’t appropriate, even if “10 things I hate about you” was a really sweet movie, and to top it all off my first Australian of the Year presentation is to Lee Kernaghan.
I just wanted to remind you all that I don’t personally chose the Australian of the Year, it’s left to a
bunch of old farts panel of eminent Australians who go through the gruelling task of assessing thousands of nominations.
With that out of the way, it’s time to start getting ready for our Hottest 100 party. Have a great Australia Day everyone.
