Chasing the stick

Fun day today - been chasing the Queens' Baton Relay around Melbourne with the kids. For those readers outside the former British Empire, next week is the Commonwealth Games and the Queens' Baton is similar to the Olympic Torch. Had a big day, scored some cool freebies (the kids love their noisemakers!) & got to be part of something bigger than ourselves. It's amazing the way a weird shaped piece of metal can bring people together. It was great to see so many people getting together to celebrate a peaceful competition instead of... well... waging war & generally treating others badly.

On a lighter note, looking forward to some good TV tonight - Supernatural. Fun show about two brothers whose chase ghosts, demons & other supernatural phenomenon. Great special effects, cool stories & it keeps the better half happy too (something to do with the lead actors - I don't get it!) Whatever - it's still a cool show. Two severed thumbs up!
