Australia Day


Tomorrow is Australia Day, and we have the day off. It's the national day of Australia and it commemorates the first fleets arrival at Sydney Cove on the 26 January 1788. Today apparently is Sicki Day, they have calculated that half a million people have chucked sickies today to make it a long weekend.

Watching the morning "news" it seemed that people can not decide if chucking a sickkie is very Australian or Un-Australian. I use the term "news" loosely as the main news they showed this morning was if Brad and Angelina had broken up or not.

The last thing one wants to be on Australia Day is un-Australian. So I reckon I better eat some lamb.
