These Goras are crazy…

… would have been Obelix’s words had he been in Australia on the 1st Tuesday of every November. That’s because the entire country comes to a standstill for a 3 minute race. And, its not like the race is exiting! It is a horse race. It is just an excuse to get drunk really.

People at work were all decked up. Men in funny costumes, women looking *really* good showing off their Fascinators. I, with my Desiness intact, was interested in the food and Champagne on offer. I bet $10 on two random horses at the office sweeps and guess what? I won $6 as a wooden spoon award.
