Happy Australia Day...

Today is the 'birthday' of Australia, signifying white settlement.

Really, it doesn't signify the countries birthday -- who knows when that was, nor does it acknowledge that there was anybody here before whites, but we conveniently brush that under the carpet.

In fact, it is just another excuse to have a long weekend and get pissed, something Aussies can do quite well without needing a reason, but just every now and then we like to have one (a reason).

Happy Australia Day.....

"Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We've golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history's page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We'll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair."

And the day is made better by watching the cricket with the sound down and listening to the hottest 100 on Triple J

triple j radio

and of course drinking beer and having a barbie (when I really should be studying for an exam on Tuesday...)
