Welcome to the sometimes painful, often preposterous, essentially playful world of the woman who brought you 'The Grass Was Always Browner' -- a tell-all memoir of my Sydney-based childhood, originally titled 'Dancing with Dingoes'. There's some dancing in it.

Thank you, Hillary Clinton (the people's 45th president)
Clinton has a Grammy Award for the audio version of her book It Takes a
Village, just one more success of this over-achieving, under-valued woman
that most people won't have known about as she campaigned to become president because, unlike her opponent, she is not a skite.
So as some
others post-election are pointing to the flaws in her campaign, because of
course it must be her fault she was not able to convince
enough people in the right states -- though she got 2 million more votes
overall than her rival -- that she was a better candidate for the job than a
'man' like Donald Trump, nothing to do with the deep-seated prejudices and
long-running misogynist smear campaign against her, I, like Curtis and
Sarah and many many more women, want to acknowledge how great she is and what a
debt we owe her as women, first and foremost. Those women who didn't vote for
her are fucking hypocrites, which is the
worst thing you can be, in my opinion.
So thank you
Hillary Clinton for showing the world what women are up against and what
we (some of us) are made of, a strength, compassion, humility, resilience and intelligence that are the best, the only,
qualities in combination capable of leading us to a comprehensively better world.
Thank you. You are a legend among women (and men) and your efforts will not be in vain.
