Happy Australia Day

Postby ozchick » Mon, 25 Jan 2010 6:29 pm

Well damn and all if those buggars back home aren't having a holiday tomorrow for Australia Day while we here in Sg are flat out like lizards drinking.
Not to worry. I'm watching Star Sports right now where Lleyton is getting Federized again for the 15th time straight. :oops:
And so if that's not cringeworthy enough, try this for some cringeworthy nostalgia.
(Apologies to all you 'wanna be' Aussies :wink: ...it's a bit wierd unless you've been down there.)

Part of my vocab now! :roll:

Happy Australia Day Ozchick! Somebody loaned me a copy of that on a CD last year (I think is was me boss) Having worked in NT, Queensland and WA for a period of 6 months I had a pretty good handle on it. It's a cracker mate! :wink:

Cutio - Prince of Wales in Little India seems to be popular tonight apparently. Doubt I can make it, but seem to be a few going.
