Sucks about you missing it, but don't worry. Around 2001 I arrived at Footy Park where the Eagles were coming out of their bus, and I forgot a texta. So the first time I see any of them up close, I can't even get their autographs.

Oh well, I made up for it later. I'm sure you will too.
I've never looked for it on YouTube - my search powers there seem to really suck!

Ooh, that's got to suck.

To tell the truth, I kinda prefer watching the Haka on TV. I've seen it against the Tongans on telly and it's been great - you can actually hear them! You can't hear them at the venue itself, at least not if you're up high like I always am.

Very nice, although if you were, uh, meeting interesting men you'd probably end up going to their place most of the time, I'd say.

i absolutely love kids. mostly the cleaning seems to be tidying up after them, which the good parents all want you to get the kids to do with you, obviously. and laundry, which i hate doing now because it's 3 stories down but wouldn't be bad with a little u2 on and such. cooking i love, so that's cool, and a chance to get better at it especially because i've really only cooked for myself before.

Yeah, that's me again. I'll prove it once and for all with another pic:



Either that's me, or I'm a photographer / stalker. YOU DECIDE.

Actually, I agree to some extent. Have a good night!

edit: Oh my god, did you notice he's not even wearing a shirt. That's too much, Bono - you're not a man of abs.

Agreed. It sounds like a fucking mess. Parts of the song display a good example of the restraint in Bono's current voice that I find almost unbearable to listen to, I think it's the "wave of sorrow" at the end of each part of the chorus. That's a poor description of what and where it is, but it's fairly distinguishable.

Oh, you mean the "oh shit we've run out of things to sing about for the last minute or so" bit? Yeah, that really does suck.

ha. the live in arrangements all seem nice - room and bathroom that you might share when the family has a guest (share the bathroom not the room), most have in-room tv and internet (yes i'll still be on the blue crack, complaining about the nappies) and some have a seperate entrance. i dunno how late i can stay out in geneva, as in, how good public transit is so i'm hoping for a centrally located family (i don't mind walking 20 minutes in a safe city after a night out either). and yeah, i'd hope to have a guy or two or ten who could bring me to his place.

the one thing is, i think i'll probably be way more intellectual than other au pairs, so i dunno where i'll make friends, because if i were working a normal job i'd be like, dude vazza, you're an au pair, loser, i don't wanna be your friend. so yes, i'm prejudiced against myself/others in the job.
