Roller Derby = aggressive Eddie :)

Oh! Oh! Oh! I went to my first roller derby tonight. It was The Black & Bluebells (bluebells being the floral emblem of the A.C.T) vs The Surly Griffins (named after Walter Burly Griffin - the american designer of the 'city' of Canberra). I cheered for the Surly Griffins as my friend knows a girl who skates for them. They won! Yay!

Tonight was sold out - probably due to the release of the movie Whip It. Chanel Cole (from Australian Idol) sang the national anthem and at half time we were treated to a troupe of swing dancers! I spent the time cramming in a ciggie outside contemplating what my derby name would be if I could actually skate. And here it is: Edwina Mountflatten *chortle* ;)

Well at least your national anthem is half decent.

When I was growing up the national anthem used to be played at the end of films in cinemas. Our elders were totally unimpressed at how quickly we managed to get to the exit, whilst the adults half heartedly stood to attention. My lack of respect for the monarchy has not dwindled since then.

Yes. We didn't stand either. I remember when I was very little we had to endure your anthem as well ;)

Having it at the end of a film is odd though.

Funny thing: I found out a while ago that our national anthem changed the year before I started school, so no wonder I don't remember it as a kid, though I do remember saluting the flag and am still proud to have done so.

I support the monarchy but I'm not a fan of "God Save The Queen", mainly because the second verse is racist and anti-Scottish (I'm not Scottish, but I'm a lifelong Scotiaphile and my fiancee is of Scottish descent).

Plot: It has taken 10 years, two little Fockers with wife Pam (Polo) and countless hurdles for Greg (Stiller) to finally get in with his tightly wound father-in-law, Jack (De Niro). After the cash-strapped dad takes a job moonlighting for a drug company, however, Jack's suspicions about his favorite male nurse come roaring back. When Greg and Pam's entire clan -- including Pam's lovelorn ex, Kevin (Wilson) -- descends for the twins' birthday party, Greg must prove to the skeptical Jack that he's fully capable as the man of the house. But with all the misunderstandings, spying and covert missions, will Greg pass Jack's final test and become the family's next patriarch...or will the circle of trust be broken for good?
