Useful Gadgets

I sooo need this item of teckernology, and I think Steph would agree...

Tho with a multiple handbag syndrome, the base unit better be transferable, otherwise it would be rather pointless.

I can also see a situation, forgot keys, handbag lights up a warning, but the front door is closed... with the keys inside.

Oops! too late.

The song you were born to.

Try it. This website tells you what was the No 1 song in UK/US (sorry no OZ) on the day you were born.

Mine was US - How deep is your love by the Bee Gees and in UK, it was Mull Of Kintyre / Girls' School - Wings (whoever they were...)

Peter Russell

Been a bit...

But i have to blog a wonderful time had at The Enmore Theatre. Russell Peters was in town!!! (This guy is even wiki-ed)

This Canadian comedian was made famous by video clips of his shows on the internet. And hes particually famous for his skit of a bargining conversation between a chinese and an indian. A Chap at Steph's work ordered tickets and Steph was lucky to purchase 2 for us!

The show was started by Yoshi, a japanese american with some very dirty humour that drew groans, laughter and snickers from the crowd. Then Russell came on. Needless to say our stomachs were hurting with laughter, our hands tender from clapping and our voices hoarse from cheering.

tho there were many highlights my favourite was his limerick,which he claimed his mother taught him:
There was a man from Madrass.
Who's balls were made out of brass,
In stormy weather, they would clang together,
and sparks would fly out his ass!
His mother was there too, and it was nice to see that he looked after her :) And as a comedian i was impressed that he had even put into his skit a bit of a moral/theological lesson.

Another amusing point was while we were waiting to be let into the show, I couldnt help but noticed that the audiecne was approximately 80% indian/asian and 20% caucasiona. So with a grin, i asked Steph,
"So Steph... how does it feel to be a minority?"

Steph looked around and looked a bit disconcerted before laughing helplessly. The English girls behind us, overheard my question and also looked abit worried too.

A lesson well taught

Today, Andrew, Kathleen and myself we wandered off to see The Sydney Swans v The Adelaide Crows on a beautiful Sydney winters day at the SCG.

My early prediction was, Adelaide was going to teach Sydney a lesson in how to play football, and from the 2nd Quarter, they definitely did that walking away with the game, and then in the last, Adelaide took their foot off the gass a little and let Sydney regain some respectability.

One thing that surprises me about Sydney crowds at the footy (no matter which code), you could hear a pin drop they're that quiet, why? Maybe it's not "polite" to cheer for your team excessively. My old flatmate from Canberra called just at the start of the 2nd half and was amazed I could hear him, hahaha Sydney fans just don't know how to cheer, anywhere else you'd have all ages spitting blood at the umpire and the opposing team...

If it wasn't for the cheerful Adelaide supporter making fun of his friends and the rest of the Sydney supporters, it would've been a quiet game.

From the beginning of the 2nd half, the Sydney fans started jumping off their bandwagon, and headed home.

For the record, the final scoreline:

Sydney Swans: 8.14.(62)
Adelaide Crows: 15.11.(101)

Steph calling...

A few months ago, I got a new 3G Phone, a Nokia 6280, and for quite some time I've not been able to test out the video phone functionality on it, cause the one person I wanted to test it on, Eva, it just won't connect.

So just fiddling away tonight, I called Andrew, and to my glee, it connected! More amazingly, there was Kathleen freaking out on the other end of the line. Andrew stuck his mug into the shot for a second, mildly interested and went back to what he was doing.

To her credit, Kath wasn't picking her nose, I think was watching TV, but was suitably freaked out by this random act of Tekernology, she took a photo of my image on Andrew's phone with their camera, and no doubt will be blogged sometime soon!

Sorry no photos, but did have some fun working with the zoom, and just generally fooling around.

Quote of the week

On the ABC's 7:30 Report the stable polical reporter, Michael Brissenden kindly likened the Treasurer Peter Costello to a walking Abacus with this line:
Every now and again, Peter Costello likes to remind us that he's more than a walking talking Abacus
I forget the rest of the line, but it was quite amusing.

You just gotta love the ABC; everyone is a source of witty fodder.

Just when you thought...

You'd seen it all... You get on the train to see a guy riding between the caridges having a smoke...
