What's the big circular thing in the background of this photo? It looks like a massive ferris wheel. Is it? I have a number of distance photos of it but frankly have no idea what it's meant to be! This particular photo is taken from the LaTrobe Street bridge over the railway near the Telstra Dome.

London Eye. Fuck, your camera has some impressive zoom on it.

Wow. That's respectable!

They make us wait that long again and we'll do the wave throughout the show

Danny, those look like what my stats would be!

I sure as hell hope you're a bowler.

Damn straight.

Next tour better not be a "Let's Rock The USA!" extravaganza again.

forgot about that. ill pull up the stats in a minute, but no im not. I have taken a fair few wickets though, including 3/21 off 18 (balls, not overs) on debut.

what i do is i dont score runs but i hold up my end. ive had a few decent partnerships where i have only scored 2 or 3 runs.

Close!

I don't know the exact name of it, but it's basically Melbourne ripping off the London Eye. I think it's supposed to be almost the same size, give or take a few metres. The London Eye looks way cooler, though.

QUOTED FOR TRUTH.

I dread checking my LiveJournal friends page since one person I know worships Big Bother and will probably make 100 entries gushing over Corey entering the house.
