Isn't SFS now Aussie Stadium? That always confuses me because it sounds like an abbreviation of Stadium Australia, i.e. now ex-Telstra Stadium, ANZ Stadium, the Olympic Stadium.

God I hate this corporate sponsorship of stadiums. It's so needlessly confusing.

So, 10-6 to Australia at half time. Never should've been more than 10-3 though. Dodgy play by Australia there right on half time gifted France an opportunity they really should've turned into a try, but at least they turned it into SOME points through a penalty kick.

Neither team has set the world alight thus far.

Damn you! I don't want this thread to go quiet.

By the way, do I seem drunk? Because I've had three glasses of wine during this half of rugby, plus a glass of port in the half hour beforehand, yet I think my typing and my phrasing is fine, and I certainly don't feel intoxicated.

No, I don't think you'll get me rating that any higher than about tenth in my U2 album rankings.

Have a good one, Daniel!

Torrents are made of SuperWin. Which reminds me, I need to see if Pure Reason Revolution's recently released live album is available via torrents yet.

See you later!

Haha, so much for indie music not being over-commercialised bollocks. Just saw two ads, one with Radiohead music and one with Joanna Newsom.

OK I'm back from the pub. And I've been drinking. So what's been happening?

(and please dear God, let it not have anything to do with planes/trains...)

Aaaand it's try time to Australia. They aren't really playing that well, but France are even more dodgy.

Well, I'm drinking and apparently not getting drunk (onto my fourth glass of wine now!), I'm also watching delayed coverage of the rugby, and Daniel and I bitched about shitty free-to-air coverage of sport.

Rugby = best sport in history.

Cricket being a close second.

For god's sake, 3.5 glasses of wine and a glass of port in the last couple of hours, and only now do I start to even feel a little tipsy?

Getting drunk seems like too much hard work.
