And here in Melbourne, it's the start of the Melbourne Cup weekend. In other words, there's a public holiday on Tuesday in honour of a horse race, which means huge numbers of people will take off Monday as well.

I find it quite tedious.

To add to my general sense of bah humbug, a new public holiday was declared this year - the day before the footy grand final.

For fuck's sake!

I suspect the GFL-eve holiday won't be repeated. The figures weren't very encouraging.

All this week - drunk idiots and abused horses.

They should at least schedule some alternate entertainments--
Ice hockey with the Zamboni on one of the teams, or air racing with leaky fuel tanks, or something.

Something approximately as suave.

Either that or the Flower Gardening and Poetry Fry Cook-Off to add a little gentility. That's about how well I fit in on half of the oil drill rigs I used to work on, even tho I was not all that genteel...
