crinkey, brown-eyed mullet

http://www.wikiality.com/Queen_Elizabeth_IIToday, we all honour our monarchical heritage. This past year has been tough for the Aussies, having lost their unofficial diplomat to the world, Steve Irwin. But that won’t keep us all from tossing our hats in celebration of the Queen. One must overlook that this entry was posted on American time, which is a day late.

I wonder who won the big match between the Collingwood Magpies and the Melbourne Demons at the Melbourne Cricket Ground?

All right, so the Queen’s Birthday isn’t a holiday high on my list. But American holidays in June are sorely lacking. I’ll be the first to admit that I have no idea when the last holiday was or when the next one is (the fourth of July?), but those unfortunate students who take classes in the summer need every chance to take a break. The American school system is heavily reliant on the concept of summer. Taking classes year-round is an easy way to die early from stress.

One thing I’m doing to celebrate the Queen’s Birthday is I’m listening to Ben Lee, the sometimes gay-sounding melodramatic (Australian) singer whose lyrics and intentions often overreach his vocal ability. Songs of note by Ben Lee include “Deep Talk in the Shallow End,” “Catch My Disease,” “No Room to Bleed,” and, my personal favorite, “Daisy.” Alternatively, one could celebrate by watching “The Naked Gun,” where an assassination attempt on Queen Elizabeth II is thwarted by Lt. Frank Drebin.

  1. “Tell me how do you make a superman?
    With courage and a steady hand,
    Conviction and a damn good attitude,
    Spiritual and moral fortitude
    But don’t forget the flowerparts…
    A soft touch and an open heart.
    A rainbow and some empathy.
    Compassion and sympathy.
    Don’t forget the, ‘I love you”s,
    Oh, and, ‘I forgive you”s too.
    It’s the little things that separate
    The good from the great.

    So tell me how do you make a superman?
    With honesty, and discipline,
    Endurance and stamina,
    An icy stare, a steely jaw?
    Don’t forget the flowerparts,
    A soft touch and a bleeding heart,
    A rainbow and some empathy,
    Compassion and sympathy.
    Don’t forget the, ‘I love you”s,
    Oh, and, ‘I forgive you”s too. I
    t’s the little things that separate
    The good from the great.
    The good from the great
    The good from the great
    The good from the great.
    It’s the little things…
    It’s the little things… Yeah, it’s the little things
    That separate The good from the great.”

    Fantastic Song. 5 star.
