‘Tis the Season to…

…put on a costume, drink a lot, and make your way to Westpac Stadium to drink some more and dance to bad music piped through dodgy sound systems. While in the background a rugby 7’s tournament takes place.

It’s a bizarre mix of drunken party and serious athleticism.

Petra’s all over parties and dress ups, so she’s always very excited about rugby 7’s weekend. We meandered around Courtenay Place this morning looking at people in costumes. Petra pointed and giggled and generally had a good time. Tomorrow, we’ll get dressed up ourselves, paint our faces, and have a picnic on the lounge floor in honour of the occasion. Petra’s been planning our costumes for ages. She’s going to be a vet, Daddy is going to wear his flash suit, and I am going as an exotic lady draped with scarves and jewels. We’ll be very fancy indeed.

Here’s a link to some of the costumes people came up with.
