Because where I live is shockingly planned, the steps to the upper floor of apartments are right by my bedroom wall. It seems like the upstairs apartments are populated by baby elephants too! Good god, they veritably thunder down every morning. But now I've tuned out that noise and it doesn't wake me like it did for my first month or two here, thankfully.

The Super 14 is intended to be at least reasonably representative of its teams' constituent areas - i.e. Wellingtonians playing for Wellington rather than Otago or Canterbury, and I don't think it's possible for a Kiwi to play for an Aussie or South African team. I like that aspect, though it has meant New Zealand has absolutely dominated the tournament. Only once has there not been a single Kiwi team in the semi-finals.

Nah, I couldn't give two hoots about the NRL - league's not my thing, I think it's a pansy sport for wimps like Ian.
Oh yeah, Freo can get fucked all the way.

Yeah, I like the idea of local boys playing for the teams representing their area. That's one thing I like less about the AFL, even if the overall drafting is a bit more effective. How many Kiwi teams are there all up?

I was thinking of watching some NRL, just to get a little more used to the concept of Rugby, even if League is dumbed down. There hasn't been an Adelaide team in years though, and most of the teams are in a state I don't give a shit about. Suppose I could go for the Warriors if I wanted to get into it at all.

Quite a few of my friends and cousins went down there, which left me with a group of people I couldn't connect to as well, despite having more liberal (if underdeveloped) views at the time. I never really felt like I belonged in the Christian or the more party-loving sides of town, though. That's one thing I hated about living in a country town, the lack of variety.

Ham will definitely work with the mustard/bbq sauce. As for roma tomatoes - well, let's just say that whenever a pasta sauce is made at this house, you can bet romas will be used. There's like, no other option!

Haloumi is a Greek cheese, particularly Cypriot. It's usually pan fried and doesn't melt much, if at all. The cooked result is a beautiful golden brown colour, and the taste is immediate, very salty and savoury. The texture is very rubbery. It goes great in yiros, or on its own with tzatziki.
See, I ended up with the conservative crowd by going to a nominally religious private school. There were those of us there because the state system sucked, and those of us there because their parents actually gave a shit about religion. Oddly enough, my best friend was there due to the former but became one of those types to give a shit about religion. His father is appalled by this development and is making sure his other two kids stay well and truly in the state system!

And I never managed to fit into the Gold Coast culture whatsoever. Every section of it was lame. At least I don't feel stupidly out of place here in Melbourne. Out of place, probably, but stupidly, no.

I'm going shopping tomorrow, so I may just pick up a little bit of shredded ham. Trying to think of other stuff to include; maybe some onion, but that's a bastard to prepare. And yeah, if you're making pasta sauce with tomatoes other than roma, you're doing it wrong! I once mistakenly bought the wrong tomatoes for a bolognese sauce - oh god, with Australian tomatoes, it was FOUL.

Oooh, haloumi sounds like it must be awesome.

Who the hell calls a team the "Dockers"? And their team song is quite possibly worse than half of Britney Spears' discography put together.

I know I've spoken before about how I find it weird in AFL how people rarely seem to support the team from where they live, and I suppose the mobility of the players affects that too. I think it definitely makes it harder for newcomers to get into the game. In the Super 14, there are five Kiwi teams - always have been. When it was the Super 12, there were four South African teams and three Aussie teams; since the expansion to the Super 14, South Africa and Australia have had one more team each.

Nah, fuck the league. Rugby's where it's at - and the international season gets under way next month. The Wallabies' first game is against Ireland on the 14th (New Zealand plays the Irish the week beforehand too). While you're in Melbourne, one game's on, Australia vs France on the 28th. I'll surely be trying to get together people to watch the game/drink wine/eat cheese and crackers and stuff. I'll likely fail, but I'll still try!

Ooh, that'd make, uh, around midday-afternoon for Aussie/Kiwis the drinking hours, I think? Maybe I can discreetly drink a little glass of absinthe.

Oh, and Mia! I am wondering how to finish a bottle of mezcal. Do you know any good shots or cocktails I can do with it?

I have a bit of wine here at home, maybe I'll join in too.

For those of you who haven't eaten haloumi before, here's a picture of it on top of some salad (which is irrelevant).
