Anzac Day.. (A post written drunk..)

How Can I describe Anzac day?? A day that defines how I think of myself as an Australian.

A day that makes me immensely proud and immeasurably sad. Who else but Australians and our mad cousins, the New Zealanders, would take a disastrous defeat, military insanity and completley chaotic ineptitude and turn it into A matter of Intense National pride. who else??

No one else thats who..Except possibly for the bloody Irish, because the Irish are fucking insane as well. The Irish whose blood runs thickly in my family and in a lot of Australian Families.

To celebrate the defeat and the senseless slaughter that was and is Gallipoli. Is truly an Australian thing.

To be proud of the fact that we are descended from convicts and from the detritus of English society is a truly Australian thing.

I think that as Australians we really like to say, Oh Get Fucked you Bastard.. which really translates to, It's your shout.. and lets put our hands in our pockets and are you right mate..
In secret squirrel language it means we want to help.. this is truly an Australian thing

Phrases like ..No Shit Sherlock.. Flat out like a lizard drinking. You bewdy , and *this is a knife* And never ever, ever! apologising for not knowing the words to our National Anthem.. this is truly an Australian thing.

"Australians all let us rejoice for we are young and free..
oh dum de dum dee do de dum oh something gird by sea...,,
blah blah blah balh balh bla bla etcetera etceterraaa.. you seeeeee..."

But I reckon that every Australian knows the words to Waltzing Matilda..
and every Australian that I know embraces the Aussie idea of a Fair go.The Australians that I know range from Korean to Polish from Malaysian to Finnish.. They all are My Australians..

Not the Aussies that the politicians would have us believe are true.

not this bullshit political correctness that is crippling our society,
not this bullshit terrorist fear.
not this bullshit search for weapons of mass destruction..
not this not this bullshit, this isn't Australian at all.
fucking bullshit fear mongering..

I often wonder what those young men and women that heeded the call to arms to serve their king and country. I wonder what they would think about the Australia of the 21st century.
Would they feel proud?? Would we be suitable inheritors of their Australian dream?
Or would they feel sad that we are still squabbling.....

Anzac day to me is My holy day. My day of tears and pride. A day that I never actually feel is a real day.I always wake up feeling disjointed on Anzac day. I am always close to tears on Anzac day.. and I always end up getting spectacularly smashed on Anzac day.. I am signing off this Anzac day post .. with a shot of whiskey...

I am Australian I am fucking Smashed.. deal with it.. It is Anzac day,.,,

Lest We Forget

They shall grow not old
as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them
nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun
and in the morning
We will remember them

Shameful Destruction

One of the first things that I do in the morning is look outside and check out what sort of day it is going to be. I looked out the bathroom window this morning and my first thought was, "Gosh it's foggy.

Then I noticed that the sun was an orangey red and I knew that it wasn't fog but bloody smoke. Thick stinky smoke from yet another of Forestry Tasmanias regeneration burns..

See that smoky photo, this is what it looked like here at 7 am.. Bastards..

This photo shows what is happening.

See that helicopter.. Napalm is being used to firebomb our forests. Richard Flanagan says it best here in an article he wrote for The Guardian...

Some days I am ashamed to be Tasmanian..

Strange.. Very Very Strange..

In February this year I wrote a post describing how global warming is to blame for my fat arse.. You can go and read it and then blame global warming for your fat bum too.. I will wait..

The spouse and I are keen anglers and as you might have gathered from previous posts of mine I am a bit of a greenie as well. I also notice stuff. Like the fact that it hasn't rained for ages. Umm like the fact that it is getting hotter. And And And that we are starting to catch strange species of fish in the river. Fish that are definitely 'Not Local Fish' *cue spooky music*

This is a juvenile Yellowtail Kingfish.. For goodness sakes! We caught this fish yesterday in the Derwent River .. WTF???? You don't normally catch these fish in the Derwent because it supposedly is a tad chilly for them. These extremely tasty fish like warmer waters and even though they can be found up the east coast around St Helens, we were totally gobsmacked to catch this little fellow down here. Of course we then tried flatstick to catch as many of this stray fishes siblings as we could... Sadly without any luck.. Maybe in a few years time these will be a common catch in our supposedly colder waters.. *Sighs*

I pinched this from Julie
