It's that day of the year  
I got all excited this morning to read in Speedcafe that the V8s were going back to Mt Panorama at Easter 2015, for a reverse-direction race. "I'm going to THAT!" I thought, getting ready to book tickets, then realised the date. :-( . Bit of a let-down, that.

Other good bits - an ad from www.oo.com.au for headphones for your cat, while Optus was advertising Give Your Dog A Phone, complete with bark-to-text software. Dick Johnson announced he was coming out of retirement (to race at the Easter Bathurst event, no doubt) and in an inspired bit of lunacy the HRT were announcing that their transporter missed the ferry from Tasmania to Melbourne, so they drove it across Bass Strait. After the Red Bull team had thoughtfully taped up all the holes in the transporter, to keep the water out.

The parents of over 1000 students at Sydney's Castle Hill High School got a text message this morning, advising that the school was shut after fire damaged it overnight. Officials are still trying to discover who hacked their database, and how, in order to send that message out.

Gotta love this day.

Ha - happy April! I've not seen any April Fools around (cos I've not really been out yet, probably *g*), so thanks for loaning me yours. Eeep for the school one, though!

Yeah, I love the funny ones but that school one doesn't rate at all.

I was skimming the headlines before sleep last night and I saw the one about the Scots driving on the right if Scotland voted for independence...and honestly, I stared, and thought to myself, 'is this some kind of joke?'

Then I realised I was so late to bed that it was April 1st, and, well...

I like your selection, but I especially like your icon. Guess what? I have not one but two ponchos.

Er. Now I come to think of it... three.

I bet you are so totally surprised.

I also read the one about the Scots changing which side of the road they drove on, but it was in a round-up of April Fools' Day jokes. That was a brilliant one I thought.

You have three ponchos? I'm shocked, I say, shocked! *g* You must be very happy then.
