The Bummers, huh.

Yep, and wow, didn't recognise it. C'gatta Airport has been totally redeveloped since I last went through in April last year. Just staying for the weekend and flying home Monday. It's Mum's birthday, you see. 50th, so I figured I should come up for this one.

No doubt you're happy! What a massacre. As much as I wanted the Bombers to win, I knew they wouldn't ... I just hoped it'd be a respectable loss.

Both games today should be good.

I honestly wasn't expecting Essendon to lose by that much (96 points), our recent first quarters have been very ordinary, which probably lead to them being only a goal down at quarter time. But from the start of the 2nd we were hitting full speed.

Hitting full speed alright! I got into QLD in time to see the final quarter, and the Bombers just looked totally wayward and listless.

There were quite a few occasions when Bombers' players were handballing in circles to each other and eventually turning it over because of our intense pressure. Fun to watch.

We can give Saints/Pies a run for their money methinks.

You may put up a good fight, but I don't expect either Saints or Pies would lose in the end ...

Hi Ravva!

One of those is crap, and one of those is good. You decide which.

As long as it's against the Pies, I have no objection!

It might as well be. We play the Pies better at the MCG than at AAMI.

I'm sorry RB...

But you're going to have a fantastic time at the U2 concert...Amsterdam were my first ever U2 concerts too.

Guess who's going parasailing tomorrow morning ...! Mum got a parasail ride for her birthday and it's a two person thing, so I'm going too. Apparently I can take my camera, so hopefully I'll get some awesome shots of the Gold Coast.

Going out for lunch now.
