A friend of mine became a citizen today. She finally got off her lazy pommy arse and is going to give the electorate what they truly desire. No, not her blood or a kidney, but her right to vote. All jokes aside, we went to her ceremony at the council chambers today and it was really nice to watch. 71 imports like herself pledged allegiance, and it actually gave me the chance to finally hear what our pledge of allegiance is. Does anyone know it? I've never actually heard it before. Anyway, then the council put on a great free barbie for everyone, which was a surprise, so we stuffed ourselves and then all headed off the the local golf club and a few drinks turned into an 6 hour drink-off.

We've decided that from now on it would be very considerate of us to attend all imports pledges of allegiance on Aus. Day and welcome them to Australia. With a free lunch. It's the least we can do.

^Sounds good Angela!!

Happy Australia Day everyone

It was a gorgeous day here in adelaide, unfortunately we missed out on tickets for the cricket - wouldn't have gotten our money's worth anyhow seeing as how we thrashed the hopeless poms AGAIN! So we went and wandered around the botanical gardens in the sunshine, went and had some lunch at a cafe and then stopped in at PJ O'Briens for a couple of beers and watched a bit of the cricket - overall a nice way to spend Australia Day

Here in Sydney hung out in the rocks, saw heaps of free bands put on by the Harbour Foreshore authority including Diesel, Alex Lloyd and The Whitlams - great stuff all round, before taking in the fireworks over Darling Harbour.

All in all a great day, great music, great to be Aussie.

Well guys, I stood out in my yard under the burning noonday sun holding the flag, saluting, and screaming out our national oath of allegience as Christ ordained.

After that I retired to bed for an afternoon nap, after which I entered the main town and instigated a spontaneous outpouring of national feeling.

Did the most absolute typical thing you could do. Had a bbq picnic in the park, played cricket and drank beer. We then all sang the national anthem off key and wrong, then bitched out the government, the weather, the pompous sports stars, Sydney, Adelaide (i ddint join in i promise!) and talked about hard how it would be to be a firie. Then we went home and slept.

Viva le Australia!

So it was a pretty normal day for you then.

Wasn't Australia's Oath of Allegiance changed to a Pledge of Commitment?
