You going to drink enough to drunkpost? I thought of going up to buy another bottle of wine, but after pizza last night, I haven't enough money on me and there's no ANZ ATMs in the vicinity. I got slugged a $2 fee for using that other ATM before the Curry Vault and I'd rather avoid giving the bank another cent of my money if at all possible.

Haha, yeah. Honestly, I suspect almost none of them are Irish. Or have ever set foot in Ireland. Though that impression is drawn more from the Gold Coast, where not even the pub owners seem to be Irish, rather than somewhere like Melbourne.
Up until recently, it looked like we could be in for a close battle for the top spot. But no, I'm afraid the Cats have once again jumped a few games clear. Can make the game a bit of a bore, to say the least.

No, just having the one can. Remember, still got a sore throat and all I'm waiting for is for the electric blanket to warm up. You may scoff, but it's chilly outside, and I don't want to risk getting any sicker!

The ATM thing sucks. Supposedly NAB cards don't charge extra when using other company's ATMs. Since the advantage there is enormous, I hope other companies start following it.

Well, Melbourne does have a strong concentration of Irish heritage, but you'd think that would mainly be from the 19th century. Of course, you meet your chaps straight from the British Isles in pubs, obviously they exist. But I know a lot of people that love nothing more than getting into bad Cork accents. It's not hard to do it.

Ugh, damn. I thought Hawthorn had been doing bloody well too?

Ahh, right, of course. I've actually finally used the heater here! Dropped below 0 - to -4! - a couple of nights ago.

Ooh, the NAB does that? Nice. Definitely hope it catches on.

It does seem to me like most recent immigrants first go to either Sydney or Melbourne and then spread out to the rest of the country later. All of the families I knew on the Gold Coast who were from the British Isles had lived in NSW or VIC originally before coming north. Why anybody would leave down here for banana bender country is beyond me.

Is Steph around? I'm totally willing to provide some running commentary.

Oh well, I'll probably blather on anyway ...

Goddamnit, only a few minutes in and Channel 7's commentators already are driving me insane.

Well, they're still right up there, but Geelong are still better. They beat them last night with some of their key players out. Away. No arguing with that!

Christ! That's gotta be something new - Axver discovers cold. But when I was outside before, it was freezing. Nearly forgot it's still that time of the year, things have been moving so fast.

Yep, so the ads say. Think it's awesome.

Yeah, a few I knew arrived in Sydney and then moved to Adelaide later. Wise choice, I tell them.

FUCK.

BRAD THORN YELLOW CARDED.

High tackle. Probably wasn't as bad as it initially looked - he went at shoulder level and slid up high, but as it happened it looked fucking nasty and I can see why he got carded.

And Australia makes the penalty kick: 3-0. Honestly, better than it could've been, as they were totally on for a try there. Definitely they've been the better team at the start, but it's early days yet.

RUUUUUUUGGGBY!

Almost my cue to leave. Drinking the beer slowly, though. My brother was recommending absinthe earlier, under the legend that high alcohol kills cold germs, but my throat is dying enough as it is, I don't think washing it with absinthe is going to help!

Oh for god's sake, try to Australia. Piss-poor early play from the All Blacks.

Absinthe might at least help you forget the alphabet and learn to spell AFL as R-U-G-B-Y.

Sure, it could do that... but can you imagine waking up with a stuffed nose AND a hangover? It doesn't get much worse than that!

Ahh, right. So the Cats are looking on for a second premiership then?

Haha. Yeah, it's been nice to have some colder weather. And my place has held the cold well, to the point I had to use the heater this morning too even though it really wasn't that cold in terms of raw temperature reading.

ANYWHERE beats Sydney. Well, maybe not Ipswich.

Last night I dreamed that I did heroin and skateboarded.

So essentially, I was a suburban teen in the 90s.
