Shiny things ...

Well, I was going to spend the day researching the Free Trade agreement between Australia and the US of A for my uni subject, and who wouldn't be excited about that when confronted with sentences such as:

1. The Parties to this Agreement, consistent with Article XXIV of GATT 1994 and Article V of GATS, hereby establish a free trade area in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement.

2. The Parties affirm their existing rights and obligations with respect to each other under existing bilateral and multilateral agreements to which both Parties are party, including the WTO Agreement.

3. This Agreement shall not be construed to derogate from any international legal obligation between the Parties that entitles goods or services, or suppliers of goods or services, to treatment more favourable than that accorded by this Agreement.

and that's just in Chapter 1, there's still 20 chapters to go. 

However ... the Buffy Watcher Guides that I purchased off eBay arrived this morning, and well I got distracted by the shiny books, and the pretty pictures, and the words - so many words about Buffy and Spike and everyone - oh well there's always tomorrow to do research.
