Yeah, I think half of what goes on in these threads is alcohol-fueled.

The other half is sexual innuendo, of course.

And occasionally somebody mentions U2. What a silly little band - why would we talk about them!

My mother's arriving on an early-ish flight.

I don't actually get the day off anyway, as Melbourne University doesn't observe Labour Day, but fuck them. I'm not going to my lecture tomorrow. It's in a non-air conditioned building on a day forecast to be 37C, and my mother's not here very long so I'd rather spend time with her than die in a Holocaust & Genocide lecture.

Oh hey Axxo!
Hey, no offence taken (i'm pretty much impossible to offend LOL).
I've been to about 10 BDO's now at least - I was at the very first one at Adelaide Uni back in 1993! I was at 2003 - the Fooies were excellent from memory

Good on you, Ax. Hope you have a good day with her, then.

Your uni doesn't observe it? I should probably make sure that mine isn't the same.

Our holiday tomorrow is Adelaide Cup Day SP, not Labour Day, so you'll be right

Oh, good. I never paid much attention to what the holidays were about, I just liked the time off.

YES. Can it kindly piss off? I think it was worse for you lot today - we only got a little past 33, but it's still nearly 25 right now. Laaame.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to her being here for a few days. It was a real pisser when she was in hospital and I was stuck down here.

I don't get why we don't observe it. The Uni of Queensland observes QLD's Labour Day at the start of May, but Melbourne University seems to think it's above the gazetted public holidays. Especially weird as I associate both Labour Day and universities with leftie stuff. You'd think a uni would be the first place to take the day off.

Wow, I didn't even know there was an Adelaide Cup.

Then again, I suppose you guys kind of need some form of communication to let the rest of us know, and you're still a few decades away from the telegraph yet and the carrier pigeon probably died of dehydration somewhere around Broken Hill.

I hope not, I put a lot of trust in that bird. He does a pretty pisspoor job with the internet, though.

Indeed there is, it's a chance for us backward bogans to dress up for the day and pretend, just for a moment , that we're as awesome as Melbourne
