Melbourne Cup fun

Melbourne Cup fun
Had a Melbourne Cup function at work today, naturally… tables full of snacks, and finger foods, plus beer. Good stuff: little pastries and prawns and sandwiches and breads and dips, that kind of thing. Most of the entire afternoon went to the party of course… and the race was five minutes. I do love Australian ...

Halloweenies…

Halloweenies...
For many years now, we’ve always made ourselves slightly prepared for Halloween, not that keeping some chocolate in the fridge is hard for us or anything… but we’ve kept it in mind. And every year previously, we’ve just eaten it ourselves a week later, none the wiser. Until this year. Must be the neighbourhood, but ...

Tell me about your Internet usage

Well, that’s what someone asked me today. By complete accident, I was called by a Swinburne University Psychology department phone poll, which gave this very interesting opportunity to answer a bunch of questions about my Internet habits. She told me it would take about 20 minutes, but in the end it took 45 minutes. But ...

No Moran’s Left Now… more Underbelly news

As many will have no doubt read, Des “Tuppence” Moran was murdered yesterday, in broad daylight, in the middle of the day, in a crowded cafe in Melbourne. He follows to the grave his brother Lewis, his nephews Jason and Mark, and many, many of their colleagues and friends. This is likely freaking police out ...

State of Origin… where does Greg Inglis come from again?

So close and yet so far… NSW should have had no chance really, and for some of the game it appeared they didn’t… but they came back, kept it close, but still went down 28-18. Highlights and lowlights were everywhere… NSW dominated the first 10 minutes, leading up to the disallowed try to Jarrad Hayne ...

Why I’m a Rugby League fan

Went to the parent’s today for another little celebration for Will’s birthday. A great day, with more presents for Will, and cake and birthday candles and all that wonderful stuff, and a football game too. Wests played Newcastle in the main TV game this afternoon, and damn it was a good game. Seizure inducing, but ...

Remembering beer?

Anzac Day… and I’m always slightly in two minds about the event. You can’t go past the importance of remembering the past horrors of Aussies in war, they’re heroism mixed with a healthy dose of “let’s never do that again”, but I’ve wondered about the direction of the day in recent years. I think the ...

Haircuts and hot days

Up early for the family haircut fun again. About time I got one — you don’t want a lot of hair in this heat. And the kids really need it too, not that they’d let us know of course! Up to Richmond again to see Amy, and thankfully nice and early, with the way the ...

Christmas cheer

After truly hideous weather yesterday, we woke up today and it was warm, sunny and only got better during the rest of the day. Really nice Christmas this year, with Will more exciited than ever before about the whole event, and we certainly made sure all wishes were fulfilled. Will only wanted one thing this ...
