I'm girt
« on: 25 January, 2006, 03:13:41 AM »
Happy Australia Day for tomorrow!

A quick google of our national anthem will reveal that "our land is girt by sea".  So is yours, and a lot of other people's, but we've put it in the anthem.

I plan to celebrate in a patriotic frenzy by not going to work.  As usual the government will try to get us excited by this, but posting this message is as frenzied as I get.

oh, and here's an Australian flag

 Didn't you hear Max,the Aussies finally got their shit together  and finally became a republic.Yay them!*

looks extremely boring for an aboriginal flag though- this would be a much better design

On initial reading of this thread, I thought it was Floyd confessing "I'm a git".

Just to be sure: are you, Floyd?
Nobody warned me I would be so awesome.

they haven't officially changed to that, but it's the aboriginal flag and hence an Australian flag. I like it.

My work mate has almost completed his emigration to Oz, just about a month to go.

So in celebration of his moving down under, we'll be celebrating Australia Day by drinking Fosters in the pub.

G'day!!
