happy australia day, mate!

according to ESPN 2 (a very credible source), today is australia day...
more or less the independence day for the aussies down south.
in celebration of australia day, i:
-spoke in a (terrible) australian accent, throwing in an occasional "let's throw another shrimp on the barbie!"
-thought about eating shrimp. and vegemite. and nutella. (mind you, the nutella part has little to do with australia and much more to do with my evil diet)
-dreamed of the summer sunshine and the ocean.
-briefly discussed the indigenous animals of australia with my parents... the list we made includes kangaroos, emus, and koalas. do you know of any others?
-wondered what it would be like to live on such a large island.
-listened to this song:

-and watched a bit of tennis!

how did you celebrate australia day?!

p.s. did anyone else see serena's incredible comeback?
