Well, for those of us in South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria (all celebrating Labor Day), and the ACT (celebrating Canberra Day, which is really 13 March) it is.
It’s also a thoroughly deserved long weekend away for Bushfire Bill and HI, who from the contents of an earlier comment will be glamping in a secret location somewhere on the New South Wales coast (which sort of inspired the picture chosen to start this thread).
Strictly speaking, it’s not a holiday weekend for moi: my university does not have Labor Day as a public holiday which is a Good Thing – otherwise three days of classes would have to be rescheduled during Semester 1 instead of just two (Good Friday and Anzac Day) – and rescheduling two causes more than enough chaos.
However, here’s to all the lucky devils who are having Monday off. May your weather be perfect, your beverages appropriately cold or hot, and your batteries fully recharged by the end of it.
What do people think about having a raffle this evening? I’m prepared to run it, and it would be on a first in best-dressed basis: no saved numbers from previous raffles.
If youse think it would be fun, let me know and I will give it a whirl, starting 5pm and closing 7:30pm Melbourne time (I will need a short break to deal with food).
