Have I mentioned how much I love Australia, and New Zealand? An entire country filled with happy, gregarious, merry people? I’ve worked with many an Australian and a Kiwi at summer camps in the past 10 years, and without a fault they are some awesome people. I love Ozzies and Kiwis like damn. I can’t wait to haul my poor children across the earth to go see both countries first hand.
And now, even more reason to love Australia (And NZ, though I don’t think NZ is participating in this show):
Eggs has alerted me to something So Unspeakably Awesome, I might have to hop a plane to Australia RIGHT NOW. That’s totally doable for a weekend, right? Right. Sure. Other side of the planet and all.
In Sydney, Eggs tells me, they have the Royal Easter Show, “which is basically a massive fun-fair/agricultural competition extravaganza. The highlight of the show for the kiddies are the Showbags, which are filled with all kinds of themed crap and candy.”
WORD. Sounds like a state fair only 34% more awesome (except for the Minnesota State Fair which, with butter head girls, is the best damn state fair ever in the history of the world and I’m not exaggerating). I don’t even celebrate Easter and I’m down with themed crap and candy in Showbags.
Especially THIS Showbag: Don’t Hassel The Hoff – containing not one, not two, but ELEVEN items of Hoff swag. Henceforth let it be known that the Hoff, he goes all the way up to eleven.
And would you check out the list of items?! Headband and Wristband set? Bling Necklace? LOVE DICE?! Eggs is particularly enamoured of the Hoff Air Freshener: “Can you go to the grave not knowing what Hoff Air smells like??”
I don’t think I can. Next stop: Continental Airlines website to see how much it costs to fly to Australia in time for the Hofftastic Easter Show. Advance Australia Fair, indeed. They just advanced to the top of my list of Awesome.
