Best Australia Day ever! I feel like I've been hit by several trucks this morning, all localised around the head and thigh area.

We decided at 1am Friday night that my brothers, my sister-in-law's siblings and I would enter the sand modeling competition at 8:30 am down at the lake entrance. Not expecting anything but a bit of fun and a few props, we went down entered and built a sand model of a giant kangaroo. Totally awesome, we got major props. There were like, a dozen people around us the entire time after it took shape. Then after we were done, we found out there was a $300 first prize... we came second place (stupid giant turtle), but that got us $180 prize money! So we split it $30 each (mines been drank away) and $30 on lunch!

Then in the afternoon, the parents and I went to other celebrations with our greek friends as we do every aus day, which is always nice. We got flag tattoos, drank from a giant bong shaped bottle. Nothing says Australia like ridiculous amounts of sun exposure.

Then we went out at night, hence the headache. I'll get the pictures of the kangaroo soon, you HAVE to see this thing!

Oh yeah, and the hottest 100 was awesome! It's a annual competition where you vote for your favourite songs of the year. Congratulations Muse! Way to beat Silverchair by 13 votes! (there were 700 000 votes in total)

That sounds absolutely awesome, Lou. :D The closest thing we have to that here is Independence Day (July 4th) - most folks have a barbeque and then when it's dark there's usually gov't sponsored fireworks and stuff.

I thought about you yesterday when I found out it was going to be Aussie day. :-) I hope you're well and recovering from the drinking. :-p I can't stomach alcohol myself, so I envy you ladies who can -- I'm counting on y'all to knock back a few in my name sometime. :-p

Love you much!

You guys have got to get something! I think a day that celebrates cold weather and awesome music is definetely required. Definetely go team Muse, I bought their album recently (finally), gotta love it :)
