a horse of course

Tuesday was Melbourne Cup Day in Australia, and although I stopped betting on the horses the year the poor horse I was backing broke it's foot in the race (it was terrible) the day itself is lots of fun and I really miss it. It's not really about the racing for most (the race only lasts about 3 or 4 minutes) you see it's about the hats, the outfit and the excuse for finishing work early to go drinking with your friends and coworkers, thus known as 'The race that stops the nation'... wonder if we could make a national hat wearing, drinking holiday here...
