G’day Bruce!Hello Bruce!Where’s Bruce?He’s not here Bruce!no, I didn’t buy this hat, but I did sing along:
Immanuel Kant was a real pissantWho was very rarely stable.Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggarWho could think you under the table.David Hume could out-consumeSchopenhauer and Hegel,And Wittgenstein was a beery swineWho was just as schloshed as Schlegel.There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach ya’'Bout the raising of the wrist.Socrates himself was permanently pissed….John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.Plato, they say, could stick it away;Half a crate of whiskey every day.Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,Hobbes was fond of his dram,And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart: “I drink, therefore I am”Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed;A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he’s pissed! 
Jenn didn’t know that song, which amazed me, but then we were even when we saw an actual Kookaburra and I didn’t know THIS song:
Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,Merry merry king of the bush is he.Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,Gay your life must be!
Kookaburra sits in the old gum treeEating all the gumdrops he can seeStop, Kookaburra, Stop, KookaburraLeave some there for me.
Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,Counting all the monkeys he can seeStop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra,That’s no monkey, that’s me.

G’day Bruce!
Hello Bruce!
Where’s Bruce?
He’s not here Bruce!
no, I didn’t buy this hat, but I did sing along:

Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
Who was very rarely stable.
Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
Who could think you under the table.
David Hume could out-consume
Schopenhauer and Hegel,
And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.
There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach ya’
'Bout the raising of the wrist.
Socrates himself was permanently pissed….
John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.
Plato, they say, could stick it away;
Half a crate of whiskey every day.
Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
Hobbes was fond of his dram,
And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart: “I drink, therefore I am”
Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed;
A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he’s pissed!

Jenn didn’t know that song, which amazed me,
but then we were even when we saw an actual Kookaburra and I didn’t know THIS song:

Kookaburra sits on the old gum tree,
Merry merry king of the bush is he.
Laugh, Kookaburra, laugh, Kookaburra,
Gay your life must be!

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree
Eating all the gumdrops he can see
Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra
Leave some there for me.

Kookaburra sits in the old gum tree,
Counting all the monkeys he can see
Stop, Kookaburra, Stop, Kookaburra,
That’s no monkey, that’s me.

Auckland to Sydney For those of you paying attention to this sort of thing, the flight from Auckland to Sydney is the exact length of that first Hobbit movie.
Katoomba/Blue Mountains
The “Blue Mountains” are actually a series of canyons, similar to The Grand Canyon, except totally covered in a eucalyptus forest and inhabited by flocks of white cockatoos.
This whole area caught fire shortly after we left (not our fault).
Turns out that these Blue Mountains are very similar geographically to the USA’s Badlands:
