Quite seriously, its obviously just sooooo archaically racist. But I had a shock when I visited Uluru (and this was when it WAS Uluru - it had already been given back to the Aboriginals). I was on a coach trip from Uluru to the Olgas and the driver on the coach played a cassette of this and it's ilk (Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport etc)as we drove through the Red Centre, with "You Are On Aboriginal Land" signs by the road. Outrageous and embarrassing.

Anyway the drink? What? Okay Dmitry, okay. Tonight it's 2 Rooz Vodka! 2-rooz-vodka.jpg

ABBA!

I love that song!! Do you know that ABBA was one of the first pop groups which produced videos for their songs, due Agnetha didn't want to travel the whole time to promote their songs? Bang-A-Boomerang was one of the first songs with an official videos - the director of this video was Lasse Hallström, who become one of the most famous swedish directors... Furthermore the song "Bang-A-Boomerang" is an ESC-song - the song was written by ABBA one year after their victory with "Waterloo" and was an entry at the Swedish Melodifestivalen in 1975 - ABBA didn't want to sing it at the Melodifestivalen and therewith Svanne & Lotta were the singers...

Well, Tatiana made the semis of short track. And was a contender to the last lap to make the final. Pity she didn't get the finiosh, but great effort Tatiana!

I was sorta hoping that tatiana could snag a bronze and we could go home with a full set. Or spring an even bigger surprise (this IS short track!). But good on her nevertheless.

We can just sit back, bask and celebrate the others now!

Life is Sweet!
