Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2005! The New Year’s fireworks display on Sydney Harbour was excellent.

We were walking down Elizabeth Street later in the night when this car slowly drives past filled with four burly guys of middle-eastern appearance. They have the windows wound down and have some cheesy 80s hit blasting on the radio, which they are singing along with at the top of their lungs. The crowds on the streets are in a pretty good mood, so there are a few that join in the singing. Suddenly, this guy walks by and dumps a glass of wine into the car through an open backseat window, laughs and jogs off.

There’s a scream of rage from the backseat of the car. The brake lights slam on and it screeches to a dead stop in the middle of the road. The radio turns off and the guy who has just had wine dumped on him clambers out of the car. He’s a little inebriated and has a bit of trouble freeing himself from his seat belt. In the meantime, the prankster has realised that the guy is actually coming after him and has bolted off into Hyde Park. If that’s not enough, the car quickly pulls over to the kerb, and the three other people in the car get out and are soon hauling ass across the park after this poor sod whose New Year is about to get unhappy very quickly. The car, lights still on, doors unlocked and keys still in the ignition, is just sitting there, empty on the curb. Ten minutes pass by and they’re still not back. I don’t know what happened to the guy they were chasing, but I suspect it wasn’t pretty.
