We visited the sort of icky local mall today for the last time. We had a coupon for a pancake restaurant that we used. It was buy one short stack and get one free, which were unremarkable, but each stack came with a giant scoop of ice cream. I gave my ice cream to Rob and ate just the pancakes.
We’ve been invited to a Melbourne Cup party tomorrow so our friend Kate and I decided that we need some sort of fancy headpiece/fascinator. We ended up finding very very cheap ones at a craft store.

Ladies and Gentlemen Ev’ry duke and earl and peer is here Ev’ryone who should be here is here. What a smashing, positively dashing Spectacle: the Ascot op’ning day. At the gate are all the horses Waiting for the cue to fly away. What a gripping, absolutely ripping Moment at the Ascot op’ning day. Pulses rushing! Faces flushing! Heartbeats speed up! I have never been so keyed up! And second now They’ll begin to run. Hark! A bell is ringing, They are springing Forward Look! It has begun…! What a frenzied moment that was! Didn’t they maintain an exhausting pace? ‘Twas a thrilling, absolutely chilling Running of the Ascot op’ning race.
