Good, that meeting didn't last long. I've got a 30 minute breather until the next one.

I doubt PT would want to do it, but they could. They aren't that big, really.

Yeah, I can't see SW as a fan of U2, can you?

Though it'd be hilarious to hear them do Four Chords That Made A Million in a support slot for U2!

Where'd Bonnie get to? I just want her to know that I am very jealous of South Australia right now because of the incredible public transport projects announced in their state budget. Wow. If only Victoria would commit that sort of money to some initiatives of our own ...

All I know her for is being in Ian's avatar! Clearly I don't watch much tennis.

Same here. Every now and then I might catch the final of a Grand Slam event, but that's pretty much it.

I barely recognise the names of most tennis players nowadays. I think if I made a list of "where's ...?", the response would be "they all retired by about 2005".

Also, I still think of Federer as this total n00b guy winning lots of shit. I feel like this is only his third season or so.

Is Agassi still playing?

Agassi retired a few years ago.

Well, I didn't think he was still around, but I wasn't sure ... so many of these sports stars seem to pull a "hey, I'll do another season!" trick.

In my world, tennis is still Samprass vs Agassi.
