Barnyard : Boy Cows with Udders?
I took the little ones to see Barnyard this weekend - I am a sucker for talking animal movies.
What amused me was seeing the male 'cows' with udders.
Now, when I went to school, cows were female cattle, and Bulls or Steers were male - but this movie takes us into a relm of an alternate reality where cows can be male and female and the males have udders too. (which, since the animals talk it must be an alternate reality, so I guess boy cows can have udders)

The Saga of My Passport
I went for my Passport interview at the post office last week.
Turns out I used the wrong color ink on the form (I used BLUE), so she didnt accept it.
Plus, I needed a full birth certificate.
I jump online at the Victorian Birth Deaths & Marriages site, thinking it should be easy.
I need to send original documents for the proof of identity via mail or photos copies signed by police. too hard, and I dont have time.
So, what do I do? I fly down to Melbourne and go visit the Birth Deaths and Marriages office in Collins St.
I was in the queue for an hour, but now I have a full birth certificate.
Back to the Passport site, find my application, print it out againa and this time I complete it in BLACK.
So, today I rock up to the post office for my second interview.
Still no joy. The lady wont accept it.
Back home, make the changes. off to another post office which doesnt need bookings, but I need to turn up at a certain time
I get there at 11:25am, which was 5 minutes too late. I need to come back at 2:30pm
I return at 2:30pm, feeling confident.
The lady behind the counter isn't happy. Apparently the name on the back of the photo needs to match the name on my birth certificate.
Now, my parents registered me as Francesco Daniele Arrigo. However all the things I have for my identify (driving license, medicare card) has me as Frank Arrigo.
I need to get another photo signed in BLACK with my full name.
4th time a charm??

WORLD FESTIVAL OF MAGIC TOUR
The kids all love a magic show - illusions, tricks, music, smoke and assorted sorcery. Not to mention juggling.
Me? Well, I liked the assistants.
It was good to get seats up the front.

Kicking Back on Holidays
This is the first week of a two week break.
Today (Wednesday), I took Billy to see Nacho Libre (after his failed attempt a few weeks back).
Once we got home, Moira had a couple of IKEA purchases which we need to build. I think I am going to outsource to Billy[listening to: Polkarama!: The Chicken Dance/Let's Get It Started/Take Me Out/Beverly - Weird Al Yankovic ]

I took Brice to the movies this afternoon.
None of the other kids wanted to see the movie, so it turned out to be a cheap afternoon out.
So, how was the movie?
Bricey liked it. His favourite scene was when a security guard got "kicked in the goolies" (his words).[listening to: Vagabond - Wolfmother ]
