Melbourne Cup day. The horse race that stops a nation. It's a public holiday in Melbourne. Yes, we all get a day off for a 3 minute horse race. We take our sport seriously here!! These are very short sentences. Must be because I am very hungover.
I went to a barbecue at friends' house. Drank way too much champagne. I'm kicking myself that I didn't put a bet on. For some reason I always bet on #6 in the Cup and #6 won yesterday. Paid over $20 for a dollar bet. If only......
However, I did win the sweep on the last race and scored myself a bottle of champers. Not what I need right now but I'm sure I'll enjoy it at some later date. :)
