I'm not a gambler, but it's the Melbourne Cup today so I went out in the rain and made my annual bet, this time on two horses (plus random extras in the quinella etc):
- Blue Monday (because yesterday was so awful in several ways)
- Scorpion (because it's only one letter off the B7 season 4 rustbucket; I hope it has a stardrive--sorry, Plaxton)
The icon is for Delta Blues who did so well for me last year. :-)
The Melbourne Cup, for those who don't know, is the race event of the year for Australians and NZers and to me it usually means summer is on its way (though not today; shiver).
